the finds made have not been exac-
gerated in any way, and I am con.
vinced thst the district will astonish
tlm world as a wealth producer. I
do not care to say much ahont our
able to give you more particulars
that will be, I believe, more than
satisfactory to those interested. It
speaks volumes that in three days
from Kaslo, we are able, to so comfortably inspect so many properties,
and to cover so much territory."
Captain Jones said: "I am more
than pleased and can assure you
that you cannot speak too highly
of the wonderful wealth of the new
camp. There are a large number
of people in there now but it is
nothing to what it will be when it
becomes known what riches are
waiting to be uncovered by the
persistent and energetic searcher
for mineral wealth. You could not

R. G. Lang, of Rossland, says:
"In a mining and prospecting experience of over thirty years, I have
never seen anything to equal the

river from the south. "I believe
that the indications already warrant the belief that a second
Klondyke will be uncovered in thc
near future. Almost every claim
can show ore with'free gold that; is
either sticking out of the rock or
that can be panned when the ore is
as large as a man's fist that were
almost pure gold. I am going back

I have already found good ground
that I ara sanguine about."

There also appears a proclamation
for tlie nominations, on October

follow about two weeks after and

The postponing of the elections
until the last of October is explained
by members of the government as
essential in order to allow time for
any appeals taken from tho con11
of revision with respect to names
on the voters list.

of the government in acceding to
their request for a bounty on lend,
hut al*oof the unvarying sympathy
nnd consideration which they have
reeieved from tho members of the
cabinet during the necessary investigation of this important question.
Too great credit cannot be given
to Senator Templeman and our
B. C. members, esjiecially the mem
Messrs. Green and Wilson, British
Columbia's delegates, and had a
talk with them over their mission
to Ottawa.
Green and Wilson admitted that
their principal object in coming
here was to endeavor to get more
money to carry on the affairs of
the province, although the * Jap-
anece question was also talked over.
It was pointed out that the provincial government was spending
$2 for every SI it had, without any
new field for taxation, and * as
long as this state of affairs lasted
there could be nothing but bankruptcy ahead.
It was thought advisable to
abandon the extravagance which
existed in. the province. Wilson
and GreenJiad iio real defence to
In respect to the Japanese question. Wilson admitted that; there
was some doubt as to whether the
province had tlie power to pass the
legislation which had been disallowed.
"The federal members impressed
upon the provincial representatives
that they had come here at a very
inopportune time, when parlament
was sitting, and just on the eve of
the provincial elections when they
had no idea whether they were to
be returned or not.

One of the best indications of
what the future is going to be, and
what is practically an assurance of
continued prosperity in the Slocan,
is contained in the following circular letter, issued by the temj orarv
organization of the Silver-Lead
Mine Owners' Association:
"Sandon, B. C, July 17,1903.
"Ed. Ledge:; Dear Sir— Yon are
hereby notified that at a meeting of
the Silver-Lead Miners of B. C,
held in Sandon, Dec. 10, 1902, and
at a subsequent meeting held at
the same place on May 4th, 1903,
resolutions wero passed looking to
the formation of a permanent organization of operators and owners
of silver-lead properties and mines,
and to that" end committees were
appointed to draft a constitution
and by-laws for the following purposes:
"lst. For selling, marketing, or
otherwise disposing of the output
of the silver lead mines of B. C.
"2nd. To protect our several
interests from encroachments of
every kind, and io see that the

Canadian Government is not diverted into channels other tnan

Herbert B. Ames was a passenger
on the train into Sandon Tuesday
evening. Mr. Ames is a wealthy
manufacturer of Montreal. He is
also a stockholder in the Payne
Mining Co. Mr. Ames bought his
Payne stock when it was selling at
$1.20, Payne stock was never
worth $1.20. Capitalized as it is
for 63,000,000, Payne stock will
never be worth 81.20. But when
Mr. Ames bought it at 81.20 he
didn't know it. He wasn't dealing in mines then; he was dealing
in very much inflated stock. He
paid for what he got, and got what
lie paid for. Payne stock is now
selling at 20c, and Mr. AmeB has
come out to see what the real thing
looks like. When he goes home
he will be able to explain things to
his friends. It is safe to say that
it will look more like 30c to Mr.
Ames than 81.20. Mr. Ames is
honest enough to say, however,
that tho fault has not beeu with
the mines so much as with the

tree that will eventually cast a shade
wide enough lo take in all sects when
they grow tired of fighting each other

are incapable of judging, and every influence is employed to deepen the impression. This is ths origin of their
belief. Not until long years of mental
conflict have passed * can they obtain
the inestimable boon of an assured and
unirammeled mind.—Lecky.
When you teach a child that, one and
one and one make three, till the day of
his death he nevur finds any fact or
series of facts in conflict with what you
have taught him. Hut when you teach
him lhat one is equol lo three and three
equal to one, and lhat if he does not
believe this undemonslrablen "truth" he
will be eternally tortured- in fire. If
this proposition and menace were first
put him in manhood, he would dismiss
it with-.a "contemptuous- laugh. But.
having been taught it in childhood, if
he be only an ordinary human specimen, in manhood he cannot repudiate
it. The baneful figure was not legitimately taught him; it was not rendered
acceptable to his judgment; it was
burnt into him wilh the branding iron
of bigotry. He can no more discard
it than the convicted,felon of old could
efface the scar of infamy that had been
burnt on his brow,—Saladin., "
Decay and death are stamped not
only on man and his works, bul on all
that surrounds .hlin, on all ihat he sees
aiid touches. Nature herself decays as
surely, if not as rapidly as the work of
his hands. The "everlasting" hills are
daily and hourly beeu worn away.
Alps, Andes and Himalays arc all iu
process of degradation, of which there
is no repair. Nay, the sun himself, the
universal author iiud giver of life in our.
planet, is only a temporary blaze—a
tire perhaps already more than half
burned out, hastening lo its final consummation of cold and lightless ashes.
And probably no other fale is in store
for the countless stars which bespangle
the nightly firmament. The animalcule
whose existence is measured by a summer's day, and the galaxy which
illumines the heavens for millions of
ages are alike subject to the common
law of ait life—growth, decay and
death.—Colter Morrison.

Breaking It Gently.
This is a true liccount of one person':,
idea of breaking it gently. The cook,
■whose home was off in the country, appeared before the "powers above" wilh
a letter in her hand.
I'll have to go home for a couple of
days, mum, she said. My cousin's just
just written to me, and she handed
over the crumpled hit of paper with an
audible sniff.
"Dear Mary, you had better come
home at once, your father is very sick,"
and it continued with many particulars
of the illness.
Al the end was a postscript, which,
like the old joke of a woman's P. S.,
had the pith of llie mailer.
"So long as you'll be driving up
from the village, you may as well bring
ihe undertaker along with you in the

Labouchere and King Edward (as
Prince of Wales) were for years fast
friends. Apropos of this friendship,
Labby was once asked what he called
the prince when he dined at Marlborough house. Well, said the famous
radical, when the soup comes on I address him as "your royal highness."
The fish softens the reserve and 1 get a

him "Wales," while during the entrees

becomes "Eddie," while he slaps me
on the back and dubs me "Labby."

We would like lo have oue thing ex
plained;   Why is it that  poor people
have more children than rich people?
A Vancouver woman confesses that
her happiness has been blighted ever
since the first week of her wedding
trip, when her husband pointed out a
strange woman on thc train and said
he thought she was handsome.
A citizen was greatly shocked when
he went home to find his wife had left
him. The great trouble with the man
was lhat he didn't have the money to
dress his wife up to her notions. While
he was working hi-jrd, trucking, she
was gadding the streets, blowing in
every cent he made and making goo-
goo eyes at other men. The husband
has calmed down and taken her departure like a philosopher. Wc predict,
however, lhat, like a bad penny, she
will return.
A large number of young men realize
it's no snap to be a ladies' man in hoi
wcaiher on a small salary. The girls
must have ice cieam, summer drinks
and buggy rides. There is nothing
funny ahout buying ice cream and soda
water to s;iti«ify (the aesthetic taste of a
half dozen more or less admiring damsels. Thc average summer girl is
heartless, if not thoughtless, Hut the
"Charley Hoy" has to do it, if he wauls
to keep up hte reputation as a smasher
of feminine hearls. When we were a
boy, way back in the east, and had a
gill ou the string, il was the custom to
call for a single dish of ice cream with
iwe spoons hi il, aud hoth eat out of
Ihe Mime dish. It brought un close up
