Never in the history of the great Canadian Northwest has there heen such
an influx of capital and population from
the American side as has been witneesed
the past summer. And in Manitoba,
too, the influx has been tremendous,
and if we are, to judge from present unmistakable indications, that part in prtr-.
ticular and the whole Dominion in general is entering upon an era of prosperity and growth that will mark a
most important epoch in the history of
Great American colonization companies have in recent months purchased
vast tracts of land in the Northwest
territories, and more recently an important real estate deal was completed
at Winnipeg, whereby over 50.00 acres
of farm land -situate to'the, southwest of
Winnipeg, have been purchased by an
American syndicate who have expended
over a quarter of a million dollars in
the venture The lands secured by
thein are adjacent to such towns as Star-
buck, Fannestelle, Carman, Sperling,
Myrtle and Osborne.
All the areas are of wild land, but
they adjoin improved farms, are well
watered, and are situated in localities
well served by railroads. The syndicate has had its agents at work for some
time through the country, and each
piece of land has been personally selected. The object has been to secure
only choice quarter sections on which
to introduce intelligent farmers from
the south.
At the head of the syndicate are C. E.
Stevens, president of the Crookston
Land company; A. H. Gate, cashier of
" -Monal bank, Mason City,

Mr. Potter aiid Mr Holahan were
seen by a Winnipeg reporter and they
expressed themselves as highly delighted with the country ih general.
" We've seen pretty much the whole of
your province," said Mr Potter, 'and
we. think we've succeeded in getting
some of the best land you have. We've
driven over mile,s and miles of prairie
to select our sections, and as we have
had some experience in a prairie'joun-
try, we know what good prairie land is.
You have some of the finest agricultural
country here iu (.'anada 1 have ever
seen '"
"''•ur land stretches right to the
the boundary," said Mr Holahan, "and
we're going to have it all settled before
next year. Already we have arranged
for a big mi tuber of families to come
into Canada. Your land here is attracting all kinds of settlers and we're
going to bring some more good ones "

The imperial government report in
regard to the prevailing rates of wages
in 1901 has caused a revival ofthe
gloomy apprehension of British disasters The decline is regarded as the
first serious one that has occurred since
1895. ihe decrease In the weekly
wages last year amounted to 17,500,000.
This loss was principally in mining,
quarrving.nud the metal, engineering
and shipbuilding trades.
It is said to be going on in the pro-sent
year also, and there Is an increase in
the number of unemployed workmen.

The followinx quotation is made from
the. latest edition of Alex. Del Mar's
"Histqry of the Precious Metals,''a
bonk which is probably the most complete ahd exhaustive work on gold production ever published, ^he qbject of
the writer seems to be to show thatgold-
"•ettinif has caused more s'ave-hunting,
blood-letting and misery than could be
balanced by the good it has been to the
world. The article is reproduced as
showing the opinion of California as a
possible gold producer held by one of
the highest authorities, while incident
ally it casts a beam of light on some of
the important moot politico-economical
questions of the day;
" The closer one looks into the details of mining for the^precious metals,
the nore inexplicable appears.the policy
of the United States in demonetizing
silver.    Of  this metal she   was   the
greatest producer, and had she insisted
upon retaining it for full legal tender
coins she might soon have become the
centtr of the world's system of finance.
As a producer of gold she is severely
handcapped.   Take California, for instance.   This state embraces what is
yond1 all  cjuestion the greatest  gold-
miniig ar -a in the known world.   The
" "other Lode stretches nearly the whole
englh of the state from north to south,
hiii) in the country below it is covered
ith placer deposits which contain more
proved and accessible gold fields than
ire known to exist in all the dominions
of Gieat Britain, including India, Africa ind Australasia    The facilities for
Minijg are unrivalled;  A permanent
ind secure government, equal laws, a
tjehsmably fair administration of justice, abundance and cheapness of food
of tht best types made close at hand,
railways, telegrapns, refineries, mints,
e{e.; abundant water at high levels,
entiie absence of royalties or taxes of
anytind, and a perfect climate.   Yet
California   only   produces  at  present
about 817,000,000 a year, while British
India produces -110,000,000, the Trans-
vial f60,000,000 and Australasia 830,000,-
0CO.   Why ? Simply because California
ie industriously handicapped    She has
nc Indians, no coolies, no Zulus, iio
contract laborers.   Her people are absolutely free; and in the present state
of civilization and under the present
circumstances   gold   cannot  be  prospected, produced and acquired by tho
economical   efforts of   free   mod*   for
*20 (57 an ounce, which is the mint price
This conclusion stands upon so firm a
foundation, it is supported by such an
overwhelming mass of evidence, that
it is indisputable.   The minimum wage
of common miners in California are (2
per diem, in most camps 82.50, in some
$8, and in Nevada 84.   The proprietors
of mines which pay those wages cannot
compete with contract labor at 15 to 60
cents a day    Thoy are handicapped
so thnt only those mines which are most
favorably situated in respect of ample
deposits of ore (tliis practically means
low grade), a ready command o( mechanical  power and water,  together
with cheap transportation and other advantages, aro attractive enough to invite the miner and capitalist "

The Long Tunnel Has 18 Inches in the Face atS
&      a Yerticle Depth on the Ledge of 600 Feet      8S
For some mouths the Bosun|has been
quietly pushing ahead development
work,'and today it is in a better condition than it has been at any time in
its history. The long No. 1 tunnel, run
in from the Silverton wagon road for a
distance of 1,500 feet, has come in con
tact with as fine a showing of zinc ore
as any mine in the camp can boast of.
The shoot is about 18 inches in thickness, and an average assay gives 607
ounces silver to the, ton. The ore also
carries 2 per cent, copper, This showing of copper ia particularly interesting-
as it is the first that has appeared in
the ore.
There is a vertical depth of (100 feet
on the lead at the point where the ore
has been encountered, and an upraise,
has been made for a distance of 175
feet to connect the No. 1 tunnel with a
90-foot winze sunk from the No. 2. This
opens up something like 265 feet of
stoping ground, and puts the mine on a
better footing than it ever has been.
There is ore blocked out to keep the
property working at its present capacity for three years. Thirty-five men
are employed.
An ore bouse is being erected at the
lake shore landing is but a short dis
tance,  greatly  reducing the  cost   of
hauling the ore.
The iron ore deposits are again attracting attention. The big deposits on
Bull river were visited by an expert on
t'uesday, The Baker "Mountain deposits are reported to lie under bond to
an American syndicate.—Fort Steele

proachod by a tributary cf the Skagit
river, and is situated a ihort distance
north of the international boundary
line. Hon. Edgar Dewdiey was dispatched by the provincial government
last year to report on the teasability of
building a railway acrose the same
range. He confined his mrvey to a
region fifty miles farther north aad subsequently reported the project to be impracticable..
The recent strike at the Green Mountain mine has developed into extensive
proportions Manager La wry states
thnt he if thoroughly satisfied with the
outlook and will proceed at once to
open up the lower levels of the property.
The crosscut which tapped the ledge
some days ago wat? carried through the
vein, and it was found that the lodge
was ten feet wide between well-defined
walls. The vein was solid ore, and a
sample across the face gave average
assay values ef $11 per ton. A drift waa
run for some fifteen feet on the ore,
and the same conditions were found to
prevail for this length.
A contract is now to lie let for 10<>
feet of drifting on the ledge, and the
companv will continue sinking at once.
The conditions at the 400-hot level,
where the crosscut was driven, show
that the ore becomes more permanent
with depth, and the •.•omnany Is en-
cmiran«u io proceed with tlie development of the vein to a lower depth.--

An editor of another paper makes

Who has a better right to spend

I may be prejudiced, but it's my
opinion that the commonest cur on

their booze-oozing carcase between
the perfumed sheets of a Pullman
bunk; i
Or more fit to occupy the. bunk ;
of the laborer or capitalist whose ;
life is spent in the zone between ,
hell and the saloon or club house:
Or more fit to occupy a cushioned
seat inside the pearly gates of paradise than the man who curses his
God and his fellows out of a mouth

man." j

wastes by the national governments

better off without.
And besides, there are altogether
too many children among the poor.
Men and women have no right
to bring children into the world
like jack rabbits unless they have
the means to raise them;
Men are brutes to burden the
mothers with a score of weaklings,
whose lives are a miserable existence from the cradle to the gutter.
Socialism should teach men first
to be men;
Socialism should teach men that
if they are to raise the standard of
the common brotherhood they must
first raise the standard of the home.
Man cannot elevate himself until
he elevates his home.

CIk Science of Socialism
•'The Passing of Capitalism,*" is
the title of a new book just out,
written by Isadore Ladoff. The,
author deals with the weighty
question of socialism, and in a
manner that is clear and scientific.
Prom the book the following excerpts are taken :
The economic structure of our
modern society is clearly drifting
towards the socialization of industry, aud Socialism is preparing the
people for the revolutionary change.
The time is near wh&n the tools of
production and raw material will
be turned over to the people engaged in production, when production will be carried on not for profit
but for consumption, when socialized production will be carried ou
by the society in the interest of
society ; in short, when society at
large will be the master of its own
economic destiny. Such a revolution in economic life demands a
radical revision and readjustment
of our moral conceptions ; it demands a clear vision of the drift of
our time and a great deal of enthusiasm in the cause of human
welfare. This clearness of vision,
this enthusiasm and the gospel of a
new system of ethics Socialism
brings to the people.
*       *       *      '*       *       *       *
As.the knowledge of all the
parts of the human body is the
condition sine qua non of a good
physician, the knowledge of all the
laws of the interrelations of human
beings is necessary for every Socialist who deserves the uame.
Socialism   is   no   longer   au   idle
into nations, and the union of nations into,higher aggregates of a
cosmopolitan character.
Let us now see what are the
social forces of which we have
spoken. Society is au aggregation
of men, and we have therefore to
consider the forces of human activity iu particular in order to understand their general and complex
manifestations in society. The
animal world is governed, by two
primary principles. One is the
self-preservation Of the individual,
and the other the propagation of
the race. These principles are
manifested iu corresponding desires. These desires are natural
forces, compelling their agents to
perform certain acts leading to certain results. The human animal
makes no exception to these primary principles of organic life.
Hunger, thirst and cold ave the
most powerful stimulants to human
activity. It is want of food, clothing and shelter that compels men
to work, to create industries, to accumulate wealth, to proclaim rights
of property, to fix rules of conduct,
to found cities and establish states,
to inaugurate wars and arrange
peace. The great difference between man and the brute creation
consists not in the desire of the individual to live and reproduce his
kind, but rather in the method of
gratifying these blind but strong
sjs' * * * * * *
Human society is subjected to the
same laws of evolution and devolution, development and decay, organization and disorganization, as the
dream; it is not a panacea, or a j rest of the organic world. All m-
specitie cure agaiust a certain dis- j stitutions of human society are of
ease, it is not a science by and for j a transitory character, they de-
itself. It is infinitely more than vei0p, grow* and succeed each other
all that. It is the application of j according to certain laws. Canni-
allsthe results of scientific investi- j balism was succeeded-by slavery,
gation,   of the results of human j slavery   by   serfdom,  serfdom by
thought and noblest feelings to the
problems of social life. Great is
the dignity of a healer of the afflictions of the human body, and the
preserver of health, but great are
also his responsibilities. To be
called a Socialist is the highest
compliment that can be paid by
one man to another.    To be a true
_>JnAialiat-._iB_t.hA-hiOpliPBfc •diat.inftl'.iftn,
a man can attain on earth. But
how many deserve to be called so,
and how many pretend to be Socialists without any shadow of right
to be counted as such ? It is not
enough to repeat thoughtlessly certain ready-made maxims and sentences in order to bc a Socialist. It
is necessary to study society in all
itw aspects and phases, to read,
think and investigate much and
long, iu order to have thc right to
call one's self a Socialist. One independent thiuking man is worth
thousands of thoughtless repeaters
of other people's ideas. It is a
great aud noble thing to ''make
Socialists," but thc proper way to
do is to make them Htudy, think
and judge for themselves, to put
thein on their own feet,
alone, sincere as it be, is not a
secure foundation for a soldier of
Socialism. Knowledge, and conviction coining from knowledge,
and independent thought, arc tht

manufacture, aud at last by machine production, the prevalent
mode of production in our own

Advanced  Socialist  thinkers do
not expect, any sudden transforma-
of society into a co-operative commonwealth by the means of a popular revolt or in consequence of a
general economic collapse. They
do not unduly idealize the proletariat as a creative social factor
ready to perform miracles of constructive work when given a fair
chance after a violent social upheaval. History does uot warrant
such an idealization. History does
not support the faith > of the Socialist of tbe old school that capitalism is bound to work out,
mechanically so to speak, its own
destruction and then be replaced
automatical ly by Socialism, even
iu case no conscientious and conscious endeavor to work in lhat di«
a new country and wrestle with
nature until she yields up her
wealth. Heroes are all those who,
leaving behind them the comforts
of civilization, build up great lumber, pulp, mining tind manufacturing industries in-the. "wild lands,
hew ont for themselves homes in
the forest or establish prosperous
homesteads on  the lonely prairie.
The.ue men are doing a man's
work. They go out into the new
lands, and by their arduous labors
compel the woods, the streams, the
rocks and the soil to yield up their
hidden resources. They add to the
common possessions of mankind.
These pioneers create wealth.
On the other hand, those who remain in the comfortable cities—the
lawyers, journalists, brokers and
the middlemen in general—are in
a way the parasites of the industrial world. Of course these classes
serve a purpose, and are a necessary part of the economic machin- j
ery of a nation. But, after all, the \
pioneers are the sturdy oaks of the
national family, and these others
are simply the vines which support themselves by clinging to the
trunks of the forests kings.
For several decades past the
trend of.population has been citywards, and we Canadians, in common with other peoples, have
grown too fond of the so<t, luxurious living of urban residence. Too
many of our vigorous young men
have been crowding into tho professions and easier walks of life.
As recent developments have
shown, Canada possesses forests,
mineral and agricultural wealth in
unexpected and untold abundance.
And to-day the cry of the nation is
for pioneers, for heroes, for vigorous young men, who have the courage to enter into possession of their
vast heritage. Americans have
been showing them the way in the
Canadian forests and fields and
Canada "wants men who will lead

that it is increasing. It has touched a
chord in the human heart that vibrates

I clou't go much on relgiou,
I never ain't had no show;
But I've got a lnidliii' tight grip, sir,
On the handful o' things I know.
I don't pan out on the prophets,
And free-will and that sort of thing,
But I believe in God and the angels
Ever since one night last spring,
I come into town with some turnips,
And my little Gabe come along—
No four-year-old in the country
Could beat him for pretty and strong.
Peart, and chippy, and sassy,
Always ready to swear and fight—
And I'd larnt him to chaw terbacker
Jest to keep his milk-teeth white,
The snow came down like a blanket
As I passed by Taggart's store ;
I went in for a jug of molasses
And left the team at the door.
They scared at something and started—
I heard one little squall,
And hell-to-split over the prairie
Went the team, Little Breeches and all,
Hell-to-split over the prairie !
I was almost frozen with skeer;
But we rousted up some torches;
And searched for 'em far and near.
At last we struck horses and waggon,
Snowed under a soft white mound,
Upset, dead beat— but of little Gabe
No hide nor hair was found.
And here all hope soured on me,
Of my fellow-critter's aid—
I jest flopped down on my marrow-bones,
Crotcli-deep in snow, and prayed.
By this the torches was played out,
And me and Israel Parr
Went off for some wood to a sheepfold
That he said was somewhere thar.

demand   upon  chivalry   could  be

Which end of it would  one acti up

a stile, one would be  making little

Some of the woes of the native
Indian press are set forth in the
Anirita Bazar Patrika of June 6
as follows:       "       '
The Englishman talks of the
miserable condition of the Indian
press, that is to say, of the papers
conducted by the natives of the
soil. Considering that the press is
the only means by which the sub-
their grievances, wants and aspirations known to the alien rulers,
India ought to be the best field for
a' flourishing newspaper press.
But hoxv does the matter actually
stand? Our honest conviction is,
there is no Indiau paper in India,
except perhaps one, which pays its
legitimate expenses. Tlie question may be asked—if that be so,
1 iow do these hundreds of ludian
papers manage to exist ? We can
reply to this question by putting
another. How do forty millions
of people in India, who do not
know what a full meal is, manage
to live? Newspaper proprietors
Htart their papers under the delu-
Hive notion that if others hail failed
they would yet succeed. They
struggle heroically for a time to
achieve success, and, failing in
their endeavors, stop their concern?.
But pride and patriotism would
uot permit them to do ho at the
proper moment. They go ou begging and borrowing, reducing the
size and the weight of the papers,
and only yield at the last moment.
Thus, we have got ho many non-
paying newspapers in India. Tho
Englishman says that India is an
"unhealthy" place for newspapers.
One rwwon why Indian pajiers do
not flourish is the hostile attitude
of tint government. The law of

 -A;U-o!d-Scot<5hmau went to-S"iv-
for a short time, as he said, with
friends of his, a young couple with
no family. After living there for
some two or three weeks, the young
couple began to get tired of their
visitor, but did not like to tell him
the state of their feelings towards
him, so they arranged a little plan
betweeu themselves as to hoxv they
would get rid of him.
Tomorrow, said the husband, I
shall come home for dinner and
shall quarrel about the soup and
say it is not good. In the midst of
our quarrel we will appeal to our
friend, and if he take your part I
will give him notice to leave the
house and if he takes my part you
do the same.
Next day at dinner the quarrel
arose about the soup and in the
heat of the argument ''uncle" was
appealed te but cooly replied :
