was a Socialism that meant something.
He lived it.    But   even   his Socialism
was not popular with the riilingelasse«,
and their followers: and that of today
cannot become fashionable      Socialism
is too plebeian to ever be acceptable to
the prigs of selfishness that style themselves flic "upper crust."
Socialism is a good thing, and anything that will lead the masses of working people to studying it and practicing
it is a good thing.    This is the object of
the new party.    Like  all such  movements it will do good    Ten,  twelve or
fifteen years ago a  similar movement
was started in the western states, and
in less than  four years the   party became so powerful as to force the Democratic hog to swallow its whole platform
and conduct the national campaign upon it.  The Republican hog won out   In
Canada the same thing will bescen.    It
may be. that a Socialist, ticket, independent of either of the old parties, will be
put in the field.     But  to suppose that
the present generation will ever see a
Socialist government  in  power, either
in Canada or the  United- States,  is absurd     Tiie money power is too well
organized and generalled.    But even if
a Socialist is never elected, no not even
being organized in every precinct in
the Dominion. Each province has executive headquarters through which
the locals will be operated. Headquarters for British Columbia are in Vancouver Each local organization will
have full power to formulate its own
platform. The prime object of the new
party will be to inaugurate an educational movement spreading throughout
the Dominion, the ultimate object of
course being to place candidates in the
field, pledged to secure legislation along
the lines of Socialism.

Writing to the Mining and Engineering Review, K. R. Casper says of mining in the Coeur d'Alenes:
"The first discovery of mineral was
made in Elverton Gulch, near Osburn,
in 1879, when gold was found and in the
same year the discoveries in Pritchard
Creek, where Murray now is, were
made. Andrew.). Prikhard, the discoverer, is still living. In 1883 people
began to come in to Eagle City from
California and Montana and the mother
lode was discovered by Billy Kinsr and
his partners. In the fall of *83 the
Golden Chest mine was found at Murray
Subsequently the Bunker Hill and
Sullivan at Wardner, the Tieer-Poor-
man and other" at Burke, and then the
Morning at Mullan. A stampede re-
sulted and tnanv  fortunes were won.

Why are these reform parties so short-
■iced'** (irgtuiizntions under tlie name
of Socialism come and go iikc periods of
depression and prosperity. They seldom live long enough to get out of the
primary sta'u-e. Is it because they so
quickly .'icco'tiiplish tlieir ends'-1 Not at
all. The men thut go to make up the

not a whit more patriotic than the rank

the new movement because it is new,

The surveys for this line from Michael,
B.C , to the International boundary at
Tobacco Plains, including a branch up
Morrisey Creek, were made by J. M.
Stark, C. E., who is also engineer in
charge of construction. Mr. Stark was
in Victoria, Sept.'.), filing the completed
plans with the department of public
works, and in an interview stated the
contractors for the line were ready for
commencing work immediately. It is
only proposed at present to construct
the line from the boundary to Fernie,
and for this work A. Guthrie & Co. have
tbe-ontraet. Sub-contracts have been
let as follows:  Tvvoney Bros., Spokane,
but it was those who held and bought
.more and developed xvho have reaped
the cream.
"The mines of the Coeur d'Alenes
ha\*e made. Spokane the beautiful city
it is, as the mines of Leadville made
Denver, and those of ("ripple Creek,
Colorado Springs. The ore in the district consists of 55 to flf* per cent lead
and 21 to 35 ozs. silver and is concentrated 5 to 9 tons into one. The mines
of the district produce about 47 per
cent, of all the lead used in the United
States. Owing to tho Smelter Trust
the production of the mines has been
curtailed. If running at their fullest
capacity 50 per cent more men could be
employed. The mines of the Bunker
Hill and Sullivan nnd the Empire State
at Wardner aro running at their fullest
capacity, employing about 1,.M> men
Those at Mullen floO, and tho-a* at

from Jennings to the boundary is all
under construction and a considerable

because men who write are anymore
truckling or less honest than the
rest of this aggregation of gold

that all forms of literature are made
to amuse the people and not to
correct the abuses from which we
suffer. In the journalistic drama
the 'sack and buskin' is being exchanged for the 'cap and bells,' the

master minds like Gibbon's and

Perils of tbe Gold hmii*:r$
One of the intrepid band who
braved the difficulties and dangers
of that mad rush up the Fraser
river.in the early sixties in search
of gold, which eventually led to the
discovery of the wonderful gold-
laden creeks of Cariboo,-has given
"Word came to us that there
was a party at Bridge river with
provisions that could be bought.
A number of us went* up (distance
seven miles); we found the party,
but they could spare only five
pounds to each, for which we paid
a brief sketch of his experiences to I $2.50 per pound.    Some of our men

in Nova Scotia, which is not with-1 by the time we got to our boat (our

,    from a Nova Scotian, describi ng the
discovery of gold in  the   Fraser
•x river, in British Columbia.    I went
\o Victoria, B.C., and reached there
when that magnificent city of today
was a howling wilderness—only a
Hudson Bay post, without even the
usual accompanying Indian  huts.
Myself and live companions built
boats to ascend the river.    During
the fortnight that we were buildjng
these boats, 15,000 Americans from
San Francisco arrived at tlie post,
which, as if by magic,becameacity
of tents.   There was a mad rush
for the gold region, and our party
lost no time in starting.    The only
man who knew anything about the
region to which we were going, or
the route, was a fellow Nova Scotian
named Falt,originally from Lunenburg county.    When  we   started,
Fait and several others went on
ahead in a home-made canoe,aiHl I
and six others followed in a row-
boat.    We were followed in  turn
bv two other boats,  and in this
order   we started on our trip of

us. We took in our boat five
others, making in all a company of

strong current.    We sailed on  till I accommodation   whatever,   myself

of an island upon which was an
accumulation of driftwood. The
wood being dry, we soon had a lire.
and three others concluded to make
an effort to get out of the country.
The river below being completely
frozen over.there was no likelihood
After partaking oi* a small  morsel, j of getting out that  way.    So  we
we spread down  blankets on  thej made enquiry of the Hudson's Bay

with blankets. In this way we
were comparatively comfortable by
the combined heat ol" our bodies.
Company men how we might travel
overland. They informed us that
there was an American fort twenty
miles distant, and gave us the
course to be travelled to  reach   it,
The night was extremely cold. The but that the route would be dilli-

rowed 30 miles across the Gulf of
Georgia, and reached the mouth of
the Fraser. The second day we
were rowing up the Fraser; we
camped on the site of what is now
New Westminster. After rowing
up the river and across lakes for
twelve days, during which we had
fix very exciting and thrilling experience, we reached an Indian
trail, which was 75 miles across
country to a point on the Fraser
river that we wanted to reach. We
had to. entry out- boat »»»* ftl1 our
stores across this trail of 75 miles.
After we had covered the distance
and endured great privations, and
overcome what were apparently insurmountable dilliculties, had a
shooting match, and narrowly escaped a lynching bee. wc reached
the I'Yiisi-t*. and found two or three
hundred now there, who were tillable to cross on account of  the ex-
starvation. We thought that it
was barely possible that wo might
descend the river in our boat, and
we at once made arrangemeUts to
do so. The weather was very cold
and the river very dangerous because of anchor ice and rapids.
The last food we ate before we
started was a crow that one of our
men had shot the day before. We
had no salt, nor had any for two
months. We floated down the
river till night overtook us, went
ashore, made a lire, laid down,cold
and hungry, without shelter. The
next morning we found the river
frozen over as far as we could see.
We concluded to abandon the boat,
as this kind of conveyance was impracticable. We thought if we
could reach Horse-Meat liar, so-
called, we might get shelter and
food. We reached the cabin of
Mr. Frank, a German, about nine
o'clock that evening. We spent a
comfortable night, as far as warmth
was concerned,but our friend Frank
could spare but a little mite  from
his-laMleiv—AVo—well know if—wo
did hot obtain food on our march
our situation would soon bo serious
indeed. The next day we resumed
our journey, following tho course
of the river, which in many places
was almost impassable. About
noon we came up to two men
(twins), belonging to )lachias,
Maine, who were repairing n boat in
which they intended to descend the
river. The point is somewhere
near Lillooet. They kindly offered
us passage, aud shared their sparse
food with us. This was providential indeed, and lifted our
drooping spirits. We assisted
them iu getting the boat ready,and
were soon on our way again, These
men were acquainted with the river
siiHiciently lo avoid being drawn
into ihe fearful rapids tlmt exist.
Without this knowledge, dentil by
drowning would In-inevitable. \\V
proceeded on our way without any
party concluded to abandon their
boats, but we stuck to,, ours. We
arranged ourselves on each side and
to a, flat prairie. Upon this we
found hard travelling because of
water under the snow.    After going
pushed   her   over   the   ice.   Fre- j about live miles we came to a river
quently the ice would not bear us,
in which case we would hang to
the gunwale. After working in
this way all day and part of the
night, we succeeded in getting into
open water. Wc found some of
our men were weakening,especially
two. They were fast asleep on the
thwarts. We covered thein up
with their blankets. The balance
of the men, except, the twins and
us two Nova Scotians, were very
much discouraged, and inclined to
be drowsy. The boat became surrounded with ice, and little could
be done in propelling her with
oars. The night was dark and w*e
were ignorant of our progress, but
about midnight we discovered a
light on our left, which was visible
for only a short time, but an „ hour
or two afterwards it again appeared.
As there was an island lying off
abreast of Fort Langley, we then
supposed we were abreast of that
fort, and that the island had shut
out the light from our vision.   This
frozen over, but not sufficient to
bear us. We. walked up the. banks
of the river two miles to an old
barn, tore off some boards, laid
them on the ice, and in this way
crossed. We walked all day over
this kind of country and reached
the woods about eight o'clock in
the evening. After going a short
distance in tlie woods, one of our
men gave up and laid down. He
could go no further. We fixed him
as the man did the Jew, covered
him up in blankets and left him.
About ten o'clock we reached Se-
miahmoo Bay. In coming down
the steep bank on to the beach we
could see the lights of the American
fort. We now had good walking
along the beach, and ere long,
probably about eleven o'clock, we
crawled up the steep and were
challenged by the sentry, but as
we could not give the countersign,
we were committed to the guardhouse, where we had to remain
until twelve o'clock,  or until the
officer,Captain Mason,and marched
to headquarters. There we were
kindly received, fed and clothed.
After about a week a small steamer
came to the fort with supplies, and
we returned to Port Townsend.
"I never heard anything further
about the frozen men, but the probabilities are that they did not survive. We reported to the commanding officer of the fort of the
man we had left behind, lie sent
out a detaehnient,and he was found
and brought in all right.''
Don't buy more space than you
need,but don't buy too little either.
Bettor buy too much than too little.
Better put an eight-dollar ad in a
ten-dollar space than to put a ten-
dollar ad in an eight-dollar space.
One way you are out only two dollars; the other way you are out
eight dollars.
The main feature, of all truly
successful advertising is its ability
to outlast the first, impression—i.e.
to deepen the good it did at first.

the influence of Lady Aubrey Bullet* at court.    She got him appointed to  the chief command   at thc
opening of the   war,  and always
after that, while he  messed and
bungled at the front, she kept him
in high favor with the crown and
the war office.    It is a proud boast
of the English that their wives sit
beside   their husbands  and even
speak  for them at the hustings,
\yorking hard and shrewdly among
the people as well, to gain votes for
those who aspire to seats in Parliament.      But  all    the   English
women of brains and ambition.do
not stop with this.    A few others
work their way deep into government circles, and defile the sources
of the nation's   strength  by ceaseless efforts to further the interests
of their husbands, even wheu the
husbands are unfit; even when they
—the wives—possess nine-tenths of
the energy and brains in the conjugal partnership.    And it is not
their    husbands   but  themselves
about whom   they   are  most concerned.    They are infatuated with
the delight of personal power. The}*
wish to pull themselves into higher
and higher stations while clinging to
the arms of   the   husbands whose
careers they engineer  by playing
upon the weaknesses  of the great

their flattery,   their   dinners  and
their gossip.    Give them credit for
their skill if you like, but think of

No man knows how successful
he will be in advertising until he
An advertisement that does'not
say anything can not be expected
to bring returns.
If the truth were strictly adhered
to by every advertiser, the results
would be better for all.
Many a business man has found
that the most expensive form of re-
treni'hnient is a discontinuance of
his ad.
Success in advertising does not
depend so much on a large expenditure of money as it does on knowing how to expend a little judiciously.

Metlume kept in the iield after
