A well attended meeting was held
in Bosnn hall Saturday night for
the purpose or organizing a Liberal
Association. (l
After tho opening preliminaries
a membership roll was drawn up
and signed, and the following officers were elected: President, Wm.
Thomlinson; secretary, C. F. Nelson; executive committee, Wm.
Thomlinson, C. F. Nelson, J. C.
Harris, D. McLachlan and Ed
Angrignon, Wm. Thomlinebn,
Amos Thompson and C. F. Nelson
were elected delegates to the Liberal convention held in New Denver on the 28th. C. A. Lett was
elected treasurer.
On Tuesday the Liberal convention met in the Liberal committee
rooms, delegates being present from
original owners came down to look
over tho claim and noticing a ledge
of not very promising quartz decided to knock off a piece of it for
luck. With his pick he cracked off
a piece of it weighing about thirty
pounds, but after it was cracked it
did not fall apart without some
force being applied. When he
lifted a portion he was more than
surprised to find that it was
stringers of gold which had held it
together. The gold is imbedded in
glittering white quartz and ns
coarse as stove-pipe wire in places,
with numerous nuggets like peas
scattered through it. The quartz
ledge from which the „ knob wa'
taken is six feet wide, although how
much is mineralized yet remains to
be seen.
the various Liberal associations in
the Riding^ Robt. A. Bradshaw
of Slocan was the unanimous choice
of the convention as a candidate to
contest the constituency in the interest of the party.
A motion was passed endorsing
the platform of the Provincial
Liberal party.

It is not a popular fad to discount the stories of rich gold findp,
•Ither in the Poplar creek or elsewhere, but it is a wise policy. The
stories that are told through the
press are unquestionably greatly
exaggerated, and until something
more tangible is given than prospectors yarns, and tho inflated Ideas
of tenderfoot agents of capital who
perhaps never saw a piece of qnortz
before, it is better to hold to a sure
thing than risk a trip into the district where the rockB aro studded
with gold and tho earth is Bowed up
with yellow wire. Hero aro two
reports of recent finds. They are
given for what they ar© worth:

Messrs. O'Connor, Hamilton and
Morgan have made one of the biggest gold discoveries yet made in tlie
camp. They brought in with them
samples of the atriko and tae quartz

gold. The greatest excitement prevailed immediately news of the
strike had got afloat and numbers
of prospectors from here joined Uie
rush to the scene ot the latest
strikes.
The scene of the discovery is on
Poplar crack about 800 feet up the
hill from the Ry. One can leave

The annual meeting of the directors of the Bosun Mining Company
was held in London on the 22nd of
July. The reports showed the
property to be in firtt-cJass condition. No dividend was declared,

The road to the Fisher Maiden,

has been in its adaption to spun
and drawn work, says the Zinc and
Lead News. As a substitute for
brass it meets many of the requirements to which only the alloy had
formerly been employed. For casting purposes perfect spelter is replacing the various soft metals or
alloys. It also possesses qualities
which lead alloys do not, being
quite stiff and capable of taking on
a high polish. Even this avenue of
consumption of spelter may be regarded as in its infancy, for there
are yet difficulties which have not
been overcome. However, some of
th-9 most expert workers in metals
are now engaged in the solution of
theso problems and the indications
at this time warrant the declaration
that in the next few years as tlie
manufacturers of spelter continue
the improvement of their product,
many hitherto apparent impossibilities will have been overcome and
the use of zinc in newer avennes of
consumption made easy.
The use of zinc in roofing is, increasing in the United States,
where until very recent years, there
has been little sheet zinc used for
this purpose as compared to its extensive use in Europe. Manufacturers of zinc shingles  or   roofing
nlfil-AQ^onA^inArAqoinM-in.niimhun-AC^
pecially throughout the east, where
thus far the greater portion of the
domestic product has been used.1
Tests in New England and in
New York state have been in progress for more than a score of years
and the testimony of those who
have roofed structures in this
fashion has been unanimously in its
favor. Manufacturers report improved business in these lines and
indications of a greater increase
during the next decadj than since
the industry has been fairly in an
gurated in this country.
Zinc smelters themselves are con
stoutly experimenting in an effort
to extend the fields in which their
product can be employed and in
many instances the results thus far
accomplished will be of no little
value to the metal working trades.

A   PERMANKNT   ORGANIZATION.
A meeting of mine owners and
managers, and otliers interested in
silver-lead mining, was held in the

The meeting was for the purpose of
affecting permanent organization,
and was most harmonious throughout.
John Keen was elected chairman
and N. J. Cavanaugh secretary, of
the meeting. The temporary organization was dissolved, and the

J.   M.   DEACON   DKOW'NKD.
One of the quaint characters of
the Slocan, J. M. Deacon, was
buried in the New Denver cemetery
Wednesday morning.
J. M. Deacon was a man of large
stature, about 03 years of age, and
up to the timo of his death was in
excellent health. Fifteen vears or
more ago, he fell oil a building and
broke his neck. He recovered and,
aside from the neck being stiff ami
awkwardly set, ho suffered little
from tho fracture. Ho was ono of
tho two men in the world who ever
lived after sustaining a broken
neck. And yet, though able to
iMMHt of this remarkable escape
from death, J, M. Deacon was
drowned in less than six Inches of
water.
I/Ast Saturday John Deacon and
Billy Coulter were on a fishing trip
to Rear Lake. They occupied an
old cabin near the lake. Deacon
wanted to go to the lake, but Coulter was tired and insisted on staying at the cabin. Deacon started
alone for the lake. Towards eve-
niug Coulter returned to Three
Forks. Deacon failed to show up,
and Sunday evening Coulter started
the enquiry about him. Monday
a putty went to the lake to search
for him. Late in the day his body
was found lying head down in a
small ditch, with only tho fa*-e in
the water. There were evidence*
of the unfortunate man having
struggled to raise himself, but hi*

THE AWFDI- DRAW.
Spokane seems to be going to thi
devil, judging from what The Review
says about the draw games in the eliti
part of the dly.    Here it is:
"Poker parties in wliich fair womer
and brave men desperately gamble
away their substance, have become the
rage with a clique of prominent Spokane sociely people living in )
addition, and while no names are being
mentioned several elderly won*
neighborhood are holding up their
hands in horror. Mrs. Grundy is 01
the rampage, and there are delicatt
hints that the police will bc called upon
to enforce the new felony law.
"About sis months ago several women began to play poker in the neighborhood referred to. At first the parties
were held but once a week, and would
last only for two or three hours at a
time. Of late months it is said they
meet three times a week, starting in
the afternoon, and often playing until
i and 3 o'clock in the morning, Thus
far the stakes have not been high. It
is a penny-ante game, and there is a
10-cent limit on the bets; but for devo^
tion to the game, it is said, the women
surpass Spokane's old-time masculine
poker fiends who attained international
notoriety in tlie days which followed
tlie Rossland boom.
"As a rule the players !wvc been
women, but instances have bewi known
where [he men folks, when ihey went
lo escort their wives home, have been
inveigled into taking a hand, nnd have
been heulen lo a frizzle by their fair
helpmeets.
"Few nl the losings, it is snid, have
been heavy, but 1 here have heen
instances where women have heen
known 10 lose $40 and $50 at n single
sitting, nnd where Uils happens two
or throe tlmun a week il cais a glnu,tty
liolo In llli) family income.
"The losings have not been bo heavy
ns some losings that have been made
at bridge whist. The horrible word
* poker,* however, has given Mrs.
Grundy a spasm, and the west end is
more or less agog over llie affair.
"The new felony law does not apply
to a woman or man who merely plays
poker, bui there is considerable ground
for   believing   thai   it does   apply
any person who permits a gambling
game to be carried on in hi:
house.   The title of the bill
to suppress gambling resorts,' nnd Mrs.
, Grwuly's interpretation of tlieliiw
that a house where old-fashioned dm
poker is played for blood two or three
times a week is a gambling resort in
the siriciest sense of Ihe term.'''
From our seat in llie clouds il looks
as though Spokane is gelling unsafe
for a young man in society.'- Just think
of dropping into a mansion to talk
about golf, and have the hostess dig
up a check rack and proceed to open
a game. A shiver of horror would
permeate our spiritual anatomy if
ever ran up against an experience
that kind. But then we men are j>
ting less protection every day, and bye
and bye it will uol-be safe for us lo go
anywhere. We have been wicked ir
some of the days that have gone, bul
never yet wicked enough to play draw
with a woman. We couldn't hear thi
pain of showing down five aces to somt
sweet divinity who was bluffing on j;
four flush- Il would bend our heart to
look into a pair of soul windows, and
see the spray coming. We could not
stand it. She would have to take Ihe
money.even if we walked out of town.
So we do not advocate poker playing
with women. It would eventually,
if the custom became general, ruin all
ihe men this side ofthe sissy line. The
habit is fatal, even if it would save
many a woman from prospecting her
husband's packets in the youthful
hours of the morning.
This implies that God could, bestow
wisdom only by allowing evil—a pleasant wisdom, truly. The origin of evil
has always been au abyss, the depth
of which no one has been able to sound.
It was this difficulty which reduced
so many ancient philosophers and legislators to have recourse to two principles—the one good, the other wicked.
* * * Among the absurdities abounding in this world, and which maybe
placed among the number of our evils,
thai is not the least which presumes
the existence of two all-powerful beings combating which shall prevail
most in this world, and making a
treaty like the two physicians in Moti-
ere: "Allow me the emetic and I resign
to you the lancet."—Voltaire.

Young Rockefeller haunts Sunday
schools and prays for light, while his
dad donates big wads to the Baptist
colleges and gives light at so much a

casting his oil upon the waters and
looking for its return. He gives a million to a church and then raises the
price of oil to get even. Thus does
strenuous Christianity prevail in some
parts of the United States.
GEMS OP THOUGHT.
The character of Moses, as stated in
ie Bible, is the most horrible that can
be imagined, If those accounts be
■rue, he was the wretch that first began and carried on wars on thc score
the pretense of religion, and under that mask or that infatuation committed the most unexampled atrocities
that are to be found in ihe history of
any naiion.—Paine.
God can either take away evil from
ie  world  and will not, or, being wil-
lingto do so, cannot; or he neither can
will; or, lastly, he is both able and
willing.    If he is willing  lo   remove
evil and cannot,   then he is not omnipotent.    If he can  hut will not rove it, then he is not benevolent.    If
is neither si hie nor willing, then he
neither   powerful    nor   benevolent.
Lastly, if ahle and willing to reniove
il, then liow  is it that it exists?—

Why quarrel over religions when all
en agree—all men, that is at the
me grade of. intellect ? The learned
busy themselves classifying religions—
there are reviews at Paris and Tuebin-
gen—but in the crude working world
religion depends less upon the belief
than on the believer. All tlie simplest
minds believe alike—betheyConfuci
or Christians, Jews or Fantees. The
elemental human heart will hav
thaumaturgic saints, its mapped hells,
its prompt answers to prayer,
deprived of them will be found subtly
to reintroduce them. The Buddha,
who came to teach natural law, waa
himself made inlo a miracle-monger;
the Hebrew Thorah, which cried ana-
Ihema on idols, became itself an idol,
swathed with purple, adorned wit
golden bells, and borne' -round like
madonna for reverent kisses. At the
base^of the intellectual mountain flourish
rank and gorgeous vegetation, a tropic
luxuriance; higher up—in the zone of
mediocrity—there are cultivated temperate zones and prune gardens, pleas-
pastures and ordered bowers; at
the snowy summits, in the rarefied
ether, flash white Ihe glacial impersonal truths, barely, a tuft of moss or
lichen. Hark ! Peak is crying unto
peak: "Thy will be done."
But what is this new voice—comes
it from the mole-hills ? "Our will he
done." See—in the mask of the high-
Christianity and si-ience—tlie old
lhaumaturgy creeping, in, though now
every man is his own saint, healing
diseases, denying death with a
Podsnappian wave of the hand. O, my
friends, in the Eternal City—that can-
for the flying panamora of races
and creeds—peep into a coffin In the
CapitoHne,museum and see the skele^
of the Etruscan girl with rings glittering on her bony lingers, and brace-
ler 11 ashless wrists,. and her
doll al her side, in ironic preservation,
blooming cheeks and sparkling eyes
mocking the eyeless occiput of its mistress. Even so shall your hugged
tremises and your glittering gospels
show among, your bones. Dp you not
know thnt dentil is lliu very condition
oflife—hound up with it asdarkness is

Tis not only the grave that parts us
from our comrades and lovers; we lose
lliem on ihe way. Lose them nol only
by quarrel and estrangement, but by
rotation ahd retrogression. Thev
broaden or narrow awuy from us, and
from thein; ttieynre changed,other,
transformed, dead and risen again.
Woe for the orphans of living parents,
the widowere of undeceased wives. Our
early ego dies by inches, till, like ihe
perpetually darned sock, it retains
nothing but the original mould and
shaping. Let us read Ihe verse more
profoundly: "In ihe midst of life we
dealh." Whoever dies in the
full tilt-of his ambitions, is buried
alive, and whoever survives his hopes
and fears Is dead, uriburied. Death
for us. is all we have missed, all ihe
periods nnd planets we liave nrii lived
in, nil ihe countries we have, not visited,
al! the books we Imve hot read, all the
emotions nnd experiences we have not
had, all the prayers we have not
prayed, all the battles wo have not
Every, restriction, every negation, is a piece of death.  Nol wholly
has popular idiom ignored this Irulli.
'■Dead to higher things," it says; but
we may be dead, too, to the higher
mathematics. Death for Ihe. individual outside the consciousness, and
life but the liny blinking life of consciousness. But hetween the light and
the dark is perpetual interplay,
turn dark to light and let light subside
(o dark as our thoughts and feeling!
veer this way or that.
And since 'lis complexity of con
sciousness lhat counls, and the death
of the amaeba. or the unborn babe,
less of a decomposition than the dealh
of a man, so is the death of a philosopher vaster than the death of a peasant. We have but one word for the
drying up of an ocean and the diying
up of a pool. And the sediment, the
clay that we bury, wherefore do we
still label it wilh the living name? As
if Qesar miglit truly slop a bunghole!

Why Kipling .Wouldn't Lecture..
very characteristic Kipling letter
again been brought into print by
the death of Major Pond, the manager
of celebrities. It seems that in 1895,
while Mr. Kipling was living in Ver-
the major tried-to get him to
make a lecture tour of the country,
offering compensation well proportioned
iuthor's celebrity, then
height. Mr. Kipling evidenll;
sidered the proposition wilh son
bul only to reject it, for he wrote
"There  is  such  a  thing as paying
one hundred and  twenty-fiv,
a dollar, and, though I  suppose there
is money in the lecturing, business,
seems lo me that the bother, the fun;
the being at everybody's beck and call,
the night journeys, and so on, make, it
very dear.     I've seen a few men who'
lived through the fight,   but  they did
t look happy,    I might do it as soon
I had two mortgages on   my house,

The Great Misunderstood.
Some of these men just come from
England to hire out wilh the Ontario
farmers have brought with them
cricket and rowing outfits, golf clubs
and tennis rackets. And the farmer
stares at the new hired man, and tlie
new hired man stares at tha farmer.—
Glencoe, Ont., Transcript.
The two farmers pulled up their respective teams.
Hello, Bill.
Hello, Sam.
I hear yeh've  got a  gentleman farmer working for veh.
,   Yep.
Where did yeh get htm ?
He was shunted ofl' down at the
station t'other night. Has big mild
eyes, so 1 thpught I'd bring him home
for the children to pla) with.
D'yer thing yeh can keep him tame?"
Sure 1 can. He eats out of my
hand already.
Yeh don't say.    Is he an H-dropper
or an A-flattener ?"
."Oil,  he's the real thing, all  right.
Wears   thc cutest little knee panties
when he goesVut walking on Sundays.
Go on. Is he the son of a belted
knight, or has he come from a country
village, the youngest of seventeen ?
I don't know. He hasn't uncorked
yet.
Well, have you taken him around the
farm and introduced him lo the cows
and horses ?
What for?
Why, if he's a trueborn Englishman
he'll not even speak lo your collie pup
without first haviug a formal introduction.
I ought to have known that, but 1
forgot. I'll see that he gets a right
knockdown this afternoon.
What's he doin' fer yeh today ?
I set him to siftin' seed corn with
his tennis racket.
That's a good idea, and say, you'll
find them steel-headed shinny clubs line
for keepin' thc coulter clean when yeh'r
plowin' in weeds. But 1 must be goin'
now.    Geddup.
So long, Sam.
So long, Bill. Don't fail to let him
see that we've imperial ideas over here,

VOLUNTARY CO-OPERATION.
The philosophers of last century were wont to look forward
to the time in which we are now living, and prophesies were
plentiful enough that with the vast improvements in machinery poverty would be almost unknown,', yet here we are
with our land, inventions and improved processes of production in the hands of a comparatively small portion, and the
the rest enslaved, working to enrich their owners, with barren sessions of legislation, and things going from bad to
worse. We are as far off as ever from the era when poverty
will be unknown, and it seems to be entirely owing tc our
adoption of wrong methods. Legislators have been weighed
and found wanting, and we must try to do for ourselves what
we have so long been expecting them to do for us. /While
politicians are squabbling over locomotive contracts, lines of
railway, contracts for 'war material, banking, broking and
speculating privileges the people are losers, and they alone
are interested in reform. If the future is to be better than
the past, legislation, as a great French sage has said, must
consist of repealing and abolishing old acts of parliament
and ancient class privileges, but in even this, perhaps,
legislation will refuse to act, or* will prove a failure. Political
methods have broken down, and the laborers of the world
must try something else, and, the new method which is already commanding attention for itself is non.political or
voluntary co-operation.

When the war began with Spain,
the people in the South were as much
nterested as those ill any other part of
the country, and all classes were eager
for news from the fleets and the army.
The  colored people were even more
numerons than the whites around the
bulletin boards, where the newspapers
mixed up, in true yellow fashion, fiction and fact.   One day in Ashville, a
negro, who Jshowed by the marks on
his  dress that  he was n whitewash
artist, was on tlie outskirlsof the crowd.
A lawyer of local note spoke to him:
"Are you going to thc war, Jim ?"
"What I goin' to de wnr fur?"
"To   fight   for your country,   of
course."
"I don't know within' 'bout fightin'."
"That won't do, Jiiiij   Thc last war
was all about you niggers,  and this
lime you've got lo do the fighting.
This is your country now and the niggers must be made lo save it."
"Who goin' to make the nigger
fight ?" asked Jim in ii sulky tone,
and showing more while in his eyes
than usual. "How yarijoin' to make
de nigger* fight ?".
"Oh, we'll make them light easy
enough," said the lawyer. "We'll put
tlie uiggcifc in I'roul, uiul llntn Aie ahhc
soldiers will stand behind and make
die niggers do the fighting"
"'Pearsto me," aatdjim slowly, and
wilh much gravity, "dat tie while folk*

Freedom of speech in ancient Rome and freedom of
speech and printing now differ not in principle, but only in
form. This freedom is the conservation of liberty, the protector of the small against the great, the indispensable condition of all social improvement; it is the real life of a nation;
for what is a nation or a man unless the tongue can utter
what the mind conceives and tell it to all countries and to
times? So we see that in modern states, where power is
usurped, the suppression of freedom of speech always follows the usurpation, for this freedom is inconsistent with
the continuance of any power which is not founded on general consent and maintained by public opinion. In a demo?
cratic constitution, where the men who hold the executive
power contemplate the accomplishment of some purpose by
unconstitutional means, the suppression of freedom of speech
and printing is the certain sign that tyranny is approaching.
The instrument that is used for this purpose is the citizen
"rniirself,"^lToTFconverted~into soidierpina-hired at the cosT
of his own fellow citizens to deprive them of their liberty.
AN IMPOSSIBLE FEAT.
A north Missouri editor received a
note the other day telling him that one
of his subscribers was dead, and asking
that his paper be discontinued. A few
days later the editor met the deceased
subscriber on the street-, and told him
about the notel I wrote that note
myself," returned the subscriber.
"What for?" asked the editor. "Well,
I wanted to stop yer paper," said the
subscriber, candidly, "an' knovvin' how
bad you need the money I [didn't liave
tlie heart to come right out and do it.
So I jes' wrote you the note about
bein* dead."     •
At a certain London church the collection used to be made in nicely embroidered bags, but so many old buttons and stale pieces of chocolate being
put in, it was decided to try plates instead. The ft st Sunday the usual
number of pennies and three-cent
pieces were put in, but among thein a
bright yellow shining piece was observable. On Monday morning there
were more callers than usual at the
vestry, some of them with the same
application. After a short in'erval another came with the same, " Oh, I am
so sorry, but I put "a sovereign into the
plate yestterday by mistake. Could I
have il, as I  really cannot afford it?"
"What?" said the vicar, "you are
the fifth that has been to see me this
morning with the same application, bul
the church warden has just told me
that the supposed sovereign is only a
gilded shilling!"
Charlie was an usher at the church
which Senator Depew occasionally attends. On arriving home one Sunday,
his mother asked him what had happened at church, to which he promptly
replied: "Mother, I showed Chauncey

Committees of citizens have been scouring Contra Costa
county, California, for a fortnight in pursuit of two lascivious ruffians who dragged Mary Silva from a horse, chained
her hands behind her, padlocked the chain, gagged her with
a handkerchief, and then outraged her. The ruffians were
not found, and the sheriff" finally concluded to look for them
on the ranch of Mary Silva's father. There the ruffians
were found and their name was John Diaz, a farm hand,
and friend of the family. When locked up, John confessed
that he was the father of the girl's uuborn child; that, fearing exposure, the girl hatched the story; that she stole the
chain from a neighbor's gate, and he used his bycicle padlock; that she requested him to fasten the chain so tightly
that it would bruise her wrists; that she arranged the time
of the imaginary assault skillfully, so that he, Diaz, would
be ostentatiously at work around the yard of her father's
house. When Diaz had finished these startling admissions,
Mary also confessed that they were entirely true.
It was, perhaps, fortunate that no brace of tramps were
found by the enraged citizens when they were scouring
Contra Costa county. Not that any of us set great store
by the lives of a couple of tramps, but still they might have
been lynched, aud it is jum as well not to have a lynching
when thc gentleman lynched turns out to be thc wrong gentleman—and wc very much fear that at times he often is.
It would afford but little satisfaction to even a tramp who
had been lynched to learn in the sweet by and by that his
fame had beeu restored by the coufession of the real criminal
Truth is mighty, and will prevail—the eternal years of God
are hers; but, as Tom Reed said, she needs every one ol
them. The truth about crimes for which men arc lynched
does not always come to light. It is a wise child that knows
its own father, and it is a wise mob that knows the right
culprit.
The fact that Mary Silva was mouuted on a horse when
the imaginary ruffians attacked her, recalls thc fact that in

Assistant Secretary of the Interior
Ryan, at one time a sheriff in his native state, relates that he was ordered
to arrest an Indian who had been selling whiskey to his red friends on the
reservation. After the sheriff had captured Poor Lo, he gave him a sound
lecture on the depravity of his conduct.
The Indian listened stolidly to the reprimand and finally asked:
"No way Injun get outer this?"
"No one can help you now but God,"
was the reply.
Sadly ihe prisoner shook his head.
Then he muttered: "God heap like
Uncle Sam; Injun never see Him !"

LUCK,   CAPITAL,   MANAGMKNT.
It has been repeatedly stated,
aud never contradicted, that the
chances of-s^ceps are greater in
mining than in almost any other
enterprise. Notwithstanding ■". it
must be admitted that all schemes
are uot successful. There have
been many millions of dollars put
out and lost,but ther° is always a
reason. In many cases it is because
enough capital could not be secured
to carry the enterprise through It
is too often the first impulse of capital to cut out and off the man who
has given it the opportunity for
pr.-fit. The inventor after struggling for years over his ideas, will,
as soon as the promoter has secured
capital for him, and warmed bis
toes, kick bim out of the way and
assume to furnish the brains for
the capital aud ruin the whole business.—Minjng Bureau.;
HE   HAD   A   SYSTEM.
In the vicinity of Brooklyn bridge
a crowd of newsboys were  engaged
in  shooting craps.   A little  chap—
who    evidently    had    lost — was
coming away in disgust when I arrested him with a dime and succeeded
in eliciting the following interview:
"Do you win much?" I asked.
"Naw; I most generally lose."
"But some one must" win;   who
does?"
"De Earl gits all de money."
"vVhom do yoa call the Earl?''
"De red headed mug wid de jumper— he plays a system."
A   LUNATIC,   BCT-
"Dear me," said the good looking
female visitor to the superintendent
ofthe lunatic asylum, "What a vicious look that woman has we just
passed in the corridor! Isshe danger
ous?"
"Yes, at times," replied the superintendent, evasively.
"But why do you allow her such
freedom?" •
"Can't help it."
"But isn't she an inmate and under
your control ?"
"Np. She is not under my control.   She's ray wife.*'
