In Bulletin No. 6, just issued by the
Minister of Fhance, speaking of revenue and taxation of mines, it says:
Coming to the question of revenue
from all sources, it has increased from
$192,000 in 1871, to -5897,085 in 188L; $1,-
038.287 in 1891. and in 1901, $1,605,920.
There were on the 80th day of June,
1900, outstanding rentals' due:—On
timber leaseholds and rentals, $90,000;
on lands Bold by public auction, on un-
surveyed pre emptions, and surveyed
pre-emptions, $540,000
There were on the 81st December,
1900, $520,000 due for unpaid taxes,
making all a total of 81,150.000. 50 per
cent, of which may be regarded as a
good asset These arrearages largely
accumulated during the recent depres
sion, and it has been considered advisable to permit the gradual payments of
arrears of land payments and taxes
which is being done
During the session of Parliament,
1900, an Act was passed enabling the
Government to assess mines two per
cent, on the value of the out put, less
freight and treatment, and for the year
1901-2 and hereafter a very substantial
revenue may be anticipated from this
This revenue had been derived largely from the Rossland and Boundary districts and the law had been unpopular,
aB owners claim that their low grade ore
will not stand such tax. It has been
suggested to go back to the assessment
plan, but that was considered inipract-
able by the best authorities A similar
proposition in tlm United States was
thus spoken of in the engineering and
Mining Journal of March 15th. and the
inference to be deducted was decidedly
favorable so our system
'I had a proposal from one of the
nay, and the plan placed before me by
the manager would not onlv. in his
opinion, increase the revenue, but popularise the Government in the Mining
districts, 1 will read the memorandum
submitted by him.   He says:—
"The plan proposed as a substitute
for the two per cent tax is* to tax all
mineral claims, excluding surface improvements. The total amount to be
raised is to be a definite sum, to be determined each year by the Lieutenant-
Govenor in Council, "who shall, when
the assessment roles are complete, levy
the particular rates to get this sum.
''Details of assessment should be left
to the Assessors. All that is wanted is
to have uniformity of method iu all districts, and Assessors will naturally and
necessarily do this
"The advantage of the plan are as follows:—
I. It relieves the Government of its
di iHculties:
"(a) By giving it mure revenue than
the2 percent tax, and a definite sum
which may be counted upon:
"(li) By'loavjig the amount and rale
for each year entirely in the hands of
the Government:
"(c) By securing the credit for reforming a specially unpopular and irritating
"2, 'r relieves  the   inining industry
from the peculiar   evil    ol   the  2   per
cent, tax, wliich in the fact that as lower grades of ores  are   mined  the   tux
seizes increasing percentages of the net
profits    This stops or  limits  all new
enterprises for utilising low-grade ores
"8, It not only relieves the industry
from this evil, Imt will, moreover, actually benefit   ,t bv  checking another
peculiar evil tn which it is suliect. This
Is  the  fact   that  »he great   uinjotity
of claim* are held by idle speculators
nr stork emu panics." who are waiting
for some other claim-owners to develop
and   thus create  a   market   for their
properties.     They   will   not   develop j
theimelves or   make terms which will j
permit others to develop their claims, j
As everyone knows, the annual   assessment work is a farce    Thus, each min j
ing district, after the boom passe, intoj
a hopeless state of paralysis from which
there is no reliel

share of taxes. It will in reality benefit him, because more, active properties
make it easier for him to get work
when out of cash."
The plan here proposed is of course
that followed in several of the States of
the Union, in which the mine is taxed
on its assessed value, the same as real
estate. There is something to be said
In that behalf, but I can easily conceive
instances of prominent low grade prop
ert-ies now in operation in which if the
mines were assessed at their actual or
reputed values, according to this plan
they would pay not only 24 per cent, of
the net profits In axation, but the
whole of their profits; while mines adjacent, partially or wholly developed
but not producing, would tie subject to
real hardship.   I can, in fact, at the
Sresent stage of development conceive
ow great injury and injustice could be
done by adopting the scheme proposed
in the foregoing.
B.   C-   DEBT   AND   WEALTH.
The net debt of British Columbia on
the 8l8t of June, 1901, was 8-6,407,-
757, which per head was $36.38. In order to ascertain our liability we must
compare this with the countries, whose
credit is undoubted. From the latest
available returns it is found that the
net debt per head of:

Not since the big celebration of 1897
has so large a crowd gathered in Slocan
City from Sandon ana the lake towns as
tha\ which went down on the ss. Slocan
on Tuesday. Of all holidays—and Canadians are partial to holidays—but of
them all, Dominion Day seems to rest
closest to the heart, and few people
there are who will not celebrate the
day if given the slightest excuse to do
so. The citizens of- Slocan provided
that excuse. They did not pretend to
make the celebration a big affair, with
lat purses as prize money, but they did
try to get the best for the money offered
and to pull off the events promptly ou
time and in a manner to give satisfaction to contestants and spectators. And
in this they succeeded in everything
but the baseball match between New
Denver and Slocan junior teams for
this the weather clerk was partly to
blame, but not so much so as the umpire, who, after "cheating us out of two
runs"—to use the expression of one of
the viaititig team—gave the game to
Slocan at tbe end of the seventh inning
with the score standing 10 to 9. This
kind of treatment has a tinge of unfairness about it, and is a blot on the page
of otherwise, clean sport.
The morning was devoted principally
to keepiug in out of the wet, but in the
mug daintily veiled with clouds, and
the ladies came out in gala attire as
if fairyland had turned loose. Tho
footraces and jumping contests were
won by the Slocan regulars, Gusty of
Sandon taking- many firsts, and Hicks
of Slocan walKiiitf on with first \r, pole
vaulting and high jumping. The bicycle races were tame affairs, there bo
ina only enough entries to capture the
prizes.' The uovelty and Victoria Cross
norse races were decidedly tho racing
features of the day, and caused the
principal excitement of the dny.
The drilling contest was well put on.
Three teams entered: Gillette and
Foley, of the Ottawa; Ftndlay and
Ihompson, of the Fisher Maiden, and
Pendrav and Aitchison, of the Arlington. The result of the drilling was a
surprise to everyboiv. The Ottawa
team nut down tiie lirst hole. They
were poorly coached, their changes
were poorly made, their striking nervous and steel handling uncertain,
while seven of their steel broke in the
hole. On the other hand the Fisher
Maiden and Arlington teams hit well,
changed well, kept their steel free, and
were well coached- But. when the holes
were measured it was found there was
only an inch difference between the
lirxt and third piissc winners: Gillette
& Foley drilled il\ inches; Findlay &
Thompson, 21J; and Pcndrny „ Aitchison, 22J.
There was a single and double scull
race on the hike in the evening, but
little interest was manifested, and just
before the boat pulled put Slocan s
strong men pulled the world over the
chalk mark at the end of a rope.
A ball in the evening wound up a verv
well-managed celebration, to which
niliny New Denverites staid to participate'.
played their respective parts last night.
Mr. Seven-Oakes was dignified in bearing; albeit a trifle stout, and had the
true conception of thc character. Miss
Emma Mathes was very good in her
part as Oliva, which slie played very
tastefully. The costumes of all the actors and actresses were correct to a
fault and the scenery was all that
could  be desired.
Following theJead.of.Kootenay towns
the coast cities are establishing a tourist
association Vancouver organized one
last week. Among the many suggestions thrown out by those present were
the following: The establishment of
warm and cold sea baths. Making
knownithe many one and two-day sea
trips through beautiful scenery that
can be taken almost daily from this
city. The establishment of a wagonette
or tally-ho service to convey visitors and
citizens round the Park at reasonable
rates; the vehicle to start at a regular
hour and to call at some of the leading
hotels before starting on each trip. A
cable or aerial tramway to the top of
one of the mountains on the north side
of the Inlet, from whence a view of un-
surpassing magnificence can be obtain-
properly supervised camping ground on
the shores of English Bay for the use of
holiday seekers and visitors from the
interior and elsewhere.

The Coronation Picnic as a picnic did
not materalize last Thursday, owing to
the heavv rain throughout the day.
Several visitors came up from Slocan
City, and many were here from San-
don, and J. C. Harris gave the free
use of Bosun hall where the children
and visitors were taken for the day.
Ice cream and a lap lunch were served,
followed by music and games and a
very happy day was spent,

'.. Money is valuable to. a man just
in proportion as he gets happiness
out. of it. The most successful
man is not the one that makes the
most money, but the one that gets
the most real joy out of life, ( We
all know men who have lots of
money that are miserable. Baptist Brown, an old darky I used to
know, could get more fun out of a
nickle than most men can out of
810. He was an old school darky
from the back woods of Virginia,
and after he came north he learned
figures from 1 to 78—78 was the
highest number in the policy wheel.
He spent his money for policy, 5-
cent gin and pork chops, and was
always happy. He had a rich.mel-
low laugh that -could be heard and-
distinguished from any other laugh
for two or three blocks. He was
the court jester of the Denver policy" shops and did more than any
other man of his humorous race to
keep down the percentage of suicide among the serious-mi uded
whites of the great policy resorts
of Larimer street and Gooseberry
alley. Some called him Laughing
Brown, but his real nickname was
Baptist Brown. He was a standing example of what Jesus meant
when he said "The kingdom of
heaven is within yo,u." Such characters are the world's greatest benefactors. "Oh, laughter, divine
laughter of joy, there are dimples
enough in thy rosy cheeks to catch
and hold and glorify all the tears
of grief. Blow, bugler, blow, till
thy silver notes do touch and kiss
the moonlit waves aud eharm the
lovers wandering amid the vine-
clad hills, but know your notes discords all compared with childhood's happy laugh, the laugh that
fills the eyes with light and every
heart with joy."
A man had better pay $5 to see a
good comedy than to pay 5 cents to
spent for laughter is well invested
and neve" fails to bring its reward.
Some people say it takes as much
sense to know how to spend a dollar as it does to make a dollar.
Hut after all, if a fellow can get
more fun out of a dollar's worth of
firecrackers than out of a dollars'
worth of beef steak, it seenis to me
the fire crackers are the proper
thing. The miser gets as much
pleasure out of not spending his
money as the spendthrift does in
his prodigality. One man worships
a 820 gold piece and takes pleasure
in carrying it around in his pocket
and taking it out and admiring it.
Another would spend it for a bicycle and get his enjoyment by riding it all over the country. One
jVllow buys a splendid home and
adorns it with beautiful pictures
and elegant furniture and books

enjoying hiuiwlf. Put him iu a

to put the same amount into school
houses and libaries. I now think
differently. If a lot of people want
to get together and build a magnificent church on the most expensive piece of ground in the center
of the city that's their business.
That's the way they enjoy themselves. They pay for what they get
aiid get what they pay for.' That's
their way of having a good time.

... When we stop to think about it
money is a very cheap thing any
way. Some of the sweetesst things
that enter into the world's wealth
are not on the market, and if they
were money could not buy them.
You can not buy the love of a woman with all the wealth of a Rockefeller. There is wealth in the
sweet vibrations that comes from
the liquid jingle of the meadow
lark's song. Who can measure
the value of the sweet, inspiring
thoughts that comes to to the soul
while sitting on a log or an old
stump in an old Virginia wood just
after a rain on a summers afternoon, listening to the music that
comes from the throats of a thousand different kinds of birds.
Did you ever think about the
value of a. thought that has its
birth in the fragrance that comes
from a wild rose? What is the
difference in the value of a thought
that comes from the smell of a hogpen and the odor of a honey-suckle?
Thoughts are material things and
are being born all the time from
different souls and are a part of
the thing from which they are born
and are valuable just in proportion
as they add to the sum of human
the music of a child's laugh is capable of changing the whole course
of a man's life. There is not a
man on the face of the earth that
could commit murder in ono. room
while the laughter of a lot of children in the next was ringing in his
ears. George Francis Train enjoys
spending his money for peanuts
and candy and sitting around the
parks giving it away to little children as they pass along. For tliis
he is called a harmless lunatic. But
who knows—maybe, after all, he
is doing as much good and making
as much happiness in the world as
some other fellow who gives away
a million dollars' worth of books
every year to a lot of people who
will never road them. It's a dead
suit? thing that the kids will eat
the candy and peanuts and enjoy
thein whether tho other fellow
reads the books or not. When old

chair at Westminister, having for
their primary object, not the subjugation of alien people alone, but
the subjugation of the very colonies who are foolish enough to toil
iVnd sacrifice in building up the
Bamum and Bailey three-ring empire.
The creating of a strong public
sentiment of Rational and race su-
perioity has become! a common
place. The "We are the people"
idea has been knocked into a
cocked hat by the Boers. Take
away the powerful agencies of the
press which is ready to whoop up
any old thing into popularity at a
moments notice, crush out the medals, the military bands, the stirring
parades, the illustrated papers, the
fiery orators, the smoking concerts,
—and what becomes of your military glory? There should be a
change indeed if every individual
thought out political problems for
himself over a pipe by his fireside!
Altruism is still a dead letter in
For two years and eight months
the whole resources of jthe Bntish

It is pleasant also in this Christian age to note that in one of the
principal churches in "London the
news of the signing of peace was
proclaimed from the pulpit. Peace

Mindful of the sad truth that 21,-
000 British lives were lost, thousands sent home invalided, the home
country soaked for 81,2-50,000,000
(official), widows and orphans
multiplied in the land, taxation
and the price of bread raised, it is
gratifying to read that this congregation arose and sang the hymn
"Bless (Jod From Whom All Blessings Flow."

Victor    Murdock,   in   the  Wichita

and produces this tuneful madrigal:
Maud Muller on a summer's day
Set a hen in a brand new way.
(Maud you see, was a city girl,
Trying-'the rural life a whirl.)
She covered a box in tinsel nay,
Lined it aimgly with new mown hay,
Filled it nicely with eggs, and then
Started to look for a likely hen.
Out of the flock selected one.
And then she thought that her   work
was done
It would have been, but this stubborn
Stood up and cackled "Ka-doot!" and
Maua Muller came, and in hurt   surprise,
Looked coldly into the creature's eyes;
Then tied its legs to the box. You bet
1 know how to make you set.''
But still it stood, andworse and worse
Shrieked forth its wrongs to the universe,
Kicked over the box with tinsel gay,
And ignominionsly flapped away.  ,
Then a bad boy over  the   barnyard
Tee-heed; ''Say Maud there's a difference
'Tween hens, you know, and it is that
One aaya *Ka-doot!' and one 'Ka-dat!"
Then Maud recalled that   the ugly
She tried to set had said  "Ka-doot!"
And ever since that historic day
She. blushes in an embarrassed way
To think of the bobble she made once
She tried to set a gentleman hen.

Avenue, New York. Mr, Davies
expects to derive an income of
about $1,000 a year from this investment. As the parcjl is a corner one, its owner has a right to occupy the sideMalk to the stoop line,
which would give him a space of 6
inches by 5 feet fronting in Third
Avenue, and 14 inches by 5 feet in
One Hundred and Forty-Ninth
Street. Mr. Davies cm also get
the right to build a vault under
the sidewalk, and the size of this
vault could be 20 by 20 feet, or
400 square'feet. He can use the
vault as a subterranean store. The
triangular ploi was made by widening Third Avenue, and title to
it has been held for some time by
Samuel G. Walker as executor. It
is said that a man stood on the
plot for three nights some months
ago, so that no one could build on
it. He covered the plot almost
with one foot.
A well-dressed young woman entered a Boston car, the other day,
and took a seat next to a man.
Presently she leaned forward and
began to tie up her shoe-lacing. It
proved rather difficult to do with
her gloves on, but after awhile the
passengers witnessing the performance saw the feat accomplished and
the lady sit back, calmly gazing
out of the Window as if "she was
always tying her shoe" in electric
cars, At the next stop, the man
beside her rose to get off,,but,
lo! there came a struggle, and then
horror, mutual and general. The
two were fastened, not exactly
hand and foot, but shoe and shoe!
So diligently had the lady tied the
knots that the lacing had to be cut
by a ready pocket knife before the

Miss Mary Curtis-Lee, daughter
of General Robert E. Lee, commander-in-chief of the armies of
the Confederacy, was placed under
arrest at Alexandria, Va., the other day, charged with violating the
law which forbids white passengers
to occupy seats in cars reserved for
colored people,-known as the "Jim
Crow" law. Miss Lee had a number of packages with her, and after
haying comfortably seated herself
in the rear of the car, intended for
negroes, refused to move when requested to do so by the conductor.
As soon as Alexandria was reached
the official caused her arrest, and
When her name was known, the
mayor ordered her to be set free.

In response to a missionary's appeals for various articles for ],ise on
an African farm,  a milking-stool
was sent to him from England. He
gave it to the negro whose duty it
was to milk the cows, with injunctions to use it.   On the first   day
the negro returned home from the
cow-sheds, bruised and   battered,
but with an empty pail.   When
the missionary asked for a explanation, the negro replied:   "Milk

won't sit on it!"
