Between the lst and 20th of July, the

Saturday morning as the train from
Nelson was traveling along the Slocan
branch near Slocan City, a fawn was
noticed racing along the track in front
of the engine. The animal turned snd
denly from the track and struck a wire

back to the track, with one horn broken.
Then it ran at the fence again, this
time getting its head between two wires
where tt stuck The Y where the train

The total amount of ore shipped from
the Slocan and Slocan Citv mining
divisions for the year 1901 was, approximately, 80.000 tons. Since January 1
to August 2, 1902, the shipments have

n Kootenay Indian
who was hunting
up the Wild" Horse creek, a tributary
of—the—KooteiiayT-ra «~aeross-a-large
grizzly bear and fired at him several
shots, acording to the Fort Steele
Prospector. The bear got away and n
the Indian thinking he might haveL
wounded him as he found blood on the
trail followed, and in passing along was
s-jt upon by the bear, who had cached
himself in aome underbrush The
grizzly knocked the Indian down, tore
away nearly all of his face, broke his
under jaw in several places, and made
deep gashes on his shoulders and legs,
leaving the poor Indian insensible.
Fortunately he had a good dog with
with him that attacked the hear and
drove him away or the Indian would
liave been killed outright Hu was
afterwards found hy his companions,
who carried him several miles to the
wagon road and from there brought
him to Fort Steele, where his wounds
were dressed.
The contract for the const ruction of
tlie Coast-Kooteiiay railway has been
signed. That is about as' fi.r as the
work will progress this year The contractors state that they "will now hurry
off to Ottawa to secure a Dominion sub-
tidy in addition to the 16,000 per mile
guaranteed by the provincial government It is out of th* question (or anything idetinite in the shape of a subsidy
to he secured at Ottawa until the next
session of parliament, ko that no start
will be made on the road yet awhile.
However, no one looked for anything
to bc done upon the agreement entered
into with the prcMintcontractors by the
provincial government, and the signing
of the contiact does not advance the
project in the least From J. J Hill's
remark* at Grand Forks last evening
it may Ite inferred that he has lift given
up the hU>« of bulkilitg a iuic tiirnllKh

Kootenay railway ever takes more material shape the odds are It will be

A correspondent at Beaton, formerly
Thomson's Landing, says that usually
quiet camp wits thrown into a state (if
excitement last Thursday by the pro-1
prietor of the Pioneer Hotel finding a
letter signed by Alexander Fetherston
stating that liefore the letter could be
opened the writer's body would be lying beneath the placid waters of the S.
E. Arm'of Arrow Lake. The writer
stated that he had lied to his mining
partner, who had just arrived from the
United States, and had swindled him
out of a large sum of money. In fact he
had been so crooked he could not think
of living any longeraud was now standing on the li!rink of eternity, and would
die by drowning. Justice Thomson
was notified and on investigation found
that Fetherston had deceived hie mining partner in the U. S. by sending
him rock from the "Eva" and "Gold
Finch1' inining claims, and swindled
him out of a large sum of money; had
forged a cheque for $57, and stolen a
bundle of blankets from the Pioneer
Provincial Constable Swanner and
Special Constable Foster came, and
concluded that Fetherston had not committed suicide but had skipped. An
information was laid and a warrant issued for his arrest. It is reported that
the constables tracked the fugitive to
Sable creek and there found that he
had broken into the camp at that place
and carried away a rifle and about 80
pounds of grub" The constables at
every point are on the lookout for
Fetherston, but at last accounts he was
still at large in the hills.    It may be

John Moran and George B. McAulay
are the owners of the Big Copper claim,
in Copper camp, adjoining the King
Solomon, owned by D. C. Corbin, tho
latter having shipped over 700 Ions of
high grade copper ore. The proporty
is about six miles from Greenwood, and
a few men have lately been developing
it with tho best results. An open cut
12 feet wide has been run into the hill,
which now has a face of somo 86 feet,
all In solid ore of an excellent quality.
It is thc intention of the owners, as
soon as the needed arrangements can
he made, to ship a thousand tons of the
ore to the local smelters. A wagon road

For a mountain town New Denver occupies a most unique and
romantic location. Situated on a
modest peninsula on the eastern
shore of Slocan lake at the mouth
of Carpenter creek, with Bigelow
Bay on the north and Union Btty
on the south, the lake in front, and
surrounded by mountains, it enjoys the genial effulgence of the
winter and summer sun from early
morn till dewy eve. The land
rises from the shore line in a succession of undulating terraces and
gently sloping hills, forming almost
a half amphitheatre of choice and
eligible building sites upon which
the artistic architect and landscape
gardener would have ample scope to
exercise their wisdom in designing
cosy liomes, comfortable residences
and palatial mansiqns, that in the
not distant future may modestly

Though placed in lines of "high
altitude''it must be kept in mind
that our isothermal lines are laid
'moug pleaeaut placgs, and all
along our valleys and rivers, round
our lakes and up the sunny slopes,
our winters aro tempered by the
warm atmosphere from the Pacific
ocean and the genial chinook from
the sunny southland, and are very
mild and moderate. Fruits and
flowers and vegetables thrive and
flourish, while those who desire to
face the winter's snow and storm
can take in the altitudes of the
mountains and hunt the wild
deer and the roe, the mountain
goat and the cariboo, the sociable
bear or fretful porcupine.
But at present we must draw attention to our scenic attractions,
which I may again say are most
unique and romantic, and to view
them in their beauty we must adopt
Charlie Nelson's motto and "get
up early." Rising with the reveille of chanticleer we step out to
the balcony, the platform or the
street, and, looking to the east up
Denver canyon, with Silver mountain on the south and Goat mountain on the north, we behold the
bright and glorious morning star
like a brilliant pendant over the
northern slope of Payne mountain
shedding its soft opalescent light
over peak and pinocle and inotiu-
taiu slope. The grey dawn appears

To return to our glacier. We do
not pretend for a moment to hold
it up alongside the Great Muir. or
the far-famed glaciers of the Alp*
or the Rockies, but as a glacier in
miniature it will be found massive,
extensive and expansive enough to
satisify the curiosity and aspirations
of the average tourist. Moreover,
it is quite approachable and accessible and the tourist can engage

a glimpse of the ice-blinks from
glaciers on the distant horizon.
From points of vantage a most
magnificent panorama opens to
view. On every side a great ocean
of glacier-crested billowy mountains stretch away in the distance,
diversified by deep canyons and
lakes and rivers, dense forests and
broad plateaus and basins, covered
in summer with rich and nutritious
grasses. Again, as we glance up
at the glacier we notice that from
beneath its frowning brow there
issues a perennial stream, which,
gathering on the flat, and concentrating its forces, springs over the
sharp escarpments, down over precipices and palisades, now a tiny
stream like a .«ilver thread and
again, when the sun comes forth in
its brightness and strength, it swells
like the Solway, and on downward
it comes through cracks and crannies and crevices and chasms, over
rocks and boulders, dropping hore
and there into boiling potholes or
swirling whirlpools, and forming a
succession of cataracts and cascades
waterfalls and rapids.

The idea that Kifigs rule by divine right was conceived in superstition and brought forth in ignorance. It is a lying, demon-

whose slimy trail can be traced
throughout the world.
The only government that exists
by divine right, is self-government.
As self-government involves the
right to misgovern yourself, until
you learn better, a people who are
sufficiently ignorant to want a King
are entitled to have o.ie. If they
are so stupid as to consider a limited or absolute monarchy better
than a Republic, they are entitled
to have what THEY consider best
for them. It would be wrong to impose a president on people who want
pie who want a president. I'epub-

without the consent of the governed than monarchies have. The
imposition of any kind of government without the consent of the
governed, is tyranny. Resistance
to tyrants is obedience to God.

Monarchial institutions were born
when the earth was enveloped in a

In the days before Hugh J. Chis-
holm of New York had become the
president of the Intern itional Paper Company and a dozen lesser
concerns, he lived in Portland, Me.
A great delight to him was a fertile little farm  which  he owned in
the suburbs,  and in whose management  he took   great interest.
Frequently he relieved the tedium
of the business life with a trip out
to the farm to inspect the place.
On one of these visits he strolled
out to the piggery.    The ever ravenous porkers heard him coming,
and, persistently on   the lookout
for feeding time,  they scrambled
into the trough and braced their
feet against the side of the pen.
As Mr. Chisholm peered over the

The British are highly elated over
the termination of the racket in
South Africa. What they had
hoped for so long has at last been
realized. The Boers have given
up the struggle, acknowledged
King Edward as their lawful sovereign, and in return for their obliging and submissive attitude, the
British propose to give their former, stubborn anatagonist $15,000,-
000 in cold cash, for reconstruction
and restocking of farms, It seems
that everybody is satisfied with
the final outcome and willing to
cheer for Edward VII as long as
the cash holds out. The Boers obtained better terms than could
have been considered probable, in
view of the determined, ferocious
attitude of Lord Salisbury and big-
mouthed Chamberlain. It is very
likely that the King brought pressure to bear on his ministers, advised them "to let the Boers
down easy." But it i-* also very
likely that powerful financial interests had a voice in the councils of
peace, and pointed out the dangers
of another year's campaign aud the
rapidly increasing financial burdens
of the Empire, It is, of course,
very patriotic and very inspiring
to see a statesman arguing about
the magic charm aud power  of an

waiting for a revival of bull speculation and for a chance te get to the
empire, the greatness of its past,
present and future, tbe necessity
of being stern and unflinching to
wards rebellious peasant. The inspiration dies away, however, and
that very quickly, when the cash
is growing scarce, when debts are
piling up, when tax-payers begin
to groan and kick and when time-
honored policies have been abandoned. Some years ago, a certain
prominent member of the German
Reichstag exclaimed that "it is
hard to be patriotic with an empty i
stomach." The Englishman, un-'
doubtedly, felt the same way in the
last few months, or else he would
not have been so anxious to indulge
in the luxury of a jag, of rioting
and mailicking, when the news "arrived that peace had beeu signed,
and to endanger his precarious
health, after having his fill of all
the wild orgies, by sleeping and
snoring peacefully on the sidewalks
residence sections of Old London.
He had to have a "hot time," because the blooming war was over
and those bull headed Boers had at
last recognized the superior rights
of mining stock-jobbers and the
necessity of giving up their lands
to the stronger and wealthier.
Yes, the stock-jobber's rights
had to be recognized; they excelled
those of the British tax-payer and
soldier. Without the stock-jobber
there would have been no war; no
loans aggregating $1,250,000,000;
no increase in income tax; no resort to a protection policy; no
Magerfonteiim and no Spion Kopw,
no humiliating military exposures;
no surrendering of Great Britain's
exclusive rights in tlie Yangtse
Valley to hated Germany and no
buckling under to Russia and
France. No wonder that the average Britisher has lost his head
and sees visions of the millennium.
He will now be more disposed to
IMirticipate in the greatest show on
earth and of the century, the coronation, and to tell envying foreigners that Knglaud is still a great
country aud propose** to continue
to do business at the old stand.
If taxation has increased, the
hope te indulged in that it will lie
offset by speculative profits and
larger tittde, The ntock-exehange
broken*, both in I«oudou aud Johannesburg, are iu a jubilant mood;
their mouths have become very
watery again; plentiful aud fat

There will tie great times, great
manipulation, great purcliaaing
aud sale*. The British public, they
think, will soon be buying right
and left, any old thing, hnthtud-
maid lia* to vent il-Mclf in something,
and what could ite more appro*
priate aud more tempting than a
purchaKC of Kaffir atocka? Some
of them are already above the ante*
Indium   level,  but that doe*  not
trough. Bull speculation is the
only one that satisfies the public.
It is, therefore, no wonder that
brokers always advise purchases.
The public will not sell, and in
order to make commissions, it must
be induced to buy, which it is only
too willing to do. There is already
a slow increase in transactions, and
Kaffirs and other securities will
soon sell at fabulous prices. Dividends will be disregarded. Who
cares about dividends these days?
People do not want anything on
their money any more. They only
want to speculate,
too small to be interesting or profitable, anyway. Speculation for a
rise, that is the thing. It is only
the old fogies, with antediluvian
ideas that still cling to dividend
ideas and dividend prospects. The
value of a stock is not determined
by such things any more. It is
determined by pools and cliques,
by high rollers like Morgan, Gates
and Harriman, to whom Btock certificates are nothing but pawns on
the speculative chess-board. Such
men do hot care whether the certificate represents something or nothing. They simply fight their battles with it.
Similar ideas are beginning to
prevail in European markets.
Everything is speculation; everybody with a little money saved up
wants to gamble. The more unknown a stock is, the more popular
it is with the frantic speculative
mob. Kaffir shares, for instance,
are issued by companies controlling
properties which are more or less
unknown and located thousands of
miles away from home. The management of such mines can issue
any report it pleases. It can pay
dividends that are not earned, in
order to dispose of stock to the
suckers, and it can also refuse to
pay anything, or make discouraging
reports, when there are millions of
ore in sight, for the purpose of
freezing  out easily-scared   stock-
.hplders. The_public does not con-
sider such things, or such potentialities. It likes Kaffirs, because
these shares represent gold mines,

The stock exchange is a great
institution. It is growing more
important than governments themselves. The public is more disposed
to read stock exchange quotations
than Government or Congressional
news. , News about the European
trips, or about the health of J. P.
Morgan, is more important than
all the eruptions of Mont Pelee, or
the Coronation of a British king,
or the ascension of Alfonso XIII.
Money rules the world. Money is
the power, and kings and goven-
ments are its puppets. Money
makes aud ends war, The Rothschilds, the Cecil Rhodes, the Werners and the Beits had more to do
with the troubles in South Africa
than Salisbury or Chamberlain.
They urged the beginning and
urged the ending of the war. They
advised their followers about coming eventa; they had their private
sources of knowledge and made
millions and inillious, while Boer
aud Tommy Atkins were banging

The public will not bother about

will be serene and nobody will dare

"When I was playing Dame
Drusilda in ''The Brownies,'* says
the tiny actress, Ida Miielle, awe
sang for three nights in Canton to
enormous houses, for the city was
full to overflowing; election was
just over, and Major McKinley was
our president-elect.
"One day I went to see him and
found him alone. He spoke of
some of his favorites ou the stage,
and his favorite plays; then he
talked of our production, and he
laughed heartily over a humble
little hit I had made. I must explain. In our opera I encountered
a demon three times my height,
and he bellowed at me, 'Keep off
the grass!'
"While in Canton I changed ray
usual answer as given in the lines,
and said, 'I don't see any grass.
Oh, I suppose you think I am
walking in Major McKinley'3 front
3'ard !' Every night that brought
down the house, for Americans had
not a spear of grass remained in it.
McKinley laughed heartily over it
while we sat looking out on the
beaten turf, then he said, 'Well,
come Ground tomorrow aud you
will see it in better condition, for I
am expecting men here right away
to resod it.'
"'Don't!' I pleaded; -please
don't, major; my lines would fall
perfectly flat unless the lawn stays
like this. Please don't touch it
until the Brownies leave town!'
And if you will believe me he did
not. He went right into the house
to telephone an order to let his
beaten yard remain untouched fo.r
a week."
