mine was necessarily a lengthy under-
taking,and the result now placed before
the shareholders shows that, after allowing for. waste ore, there are nearly
484,000 tons of ore. in sight, giving a
gross value of $11.75 The working
costs are stated by Messrs. Price, Water-
house & Co. to amount to $1072, leaving $1.03 profit per ton The matte and
ore dumps at the mine and smelter,
amounting in value at November 30th
to nearly $1,000,0000, have been mortgaged to the Bank of Montreal at almost
their full value, so that at that date the
credit balance amounted to only £8,000.
Such a showing for an undertaking of
this magnitude is very fa( from satisfactory to the English shareholders
Mr. Frecheville's report on the geolog*
ical formation supports the views of
other engineers, and there is no reason
to doubt the continuity of the ore bodies
at depth; in fact, the grade at the lowest workings iB higher than the average
of that exposed in the other levels. A
large sum of money appears to have
been frittered away in mine workings
which were unnecessary; machinery
has apparently 'teen purchased for
whk-h there was no immediate need,
and, in one case, of a size quite useless
for the purpose intended. Mr Frecheville's examination of the company's
smelter at Northport discloses not only
grave in egularities, but also extravagant working, by which the' company
has incurred considerable loss. It is

ihe company will from henceforth earn
a minimum profit of something over 10s
per ton. On this estimate, taking the
weekly output of the mine at 0,000 tons
a week, the earnings of the property
available for distribution would amount
to £1150,000 per annum, from which the
Loudon expenditure would have to he
deducted, thus leaving rather less than
15 per cent f r the shareholders. It is
not unticip-ti-tl that for the lirst year
under the new management this -jsti-
mate will be fully realized.

different varieties of grain and potatoes,
together with the quantities of poultry
and dairy products,and figuring out the
value at the prices estimated to have
been paid the farmer. The revenue
derived from tho sa'e of Btock, hay or
roots is not included in this estimate, as
there are no quantities given,but these,
of course, materially increase the assets
of the Manitoba farmer, and give him a
large additional revenue.

HoptfUT VfeVf OF Tt
P. O'Neill Looks for Boom Days in the Slocan
in the Wear Future.
The following letter from Frank P.
O'Neill, a Spokane man largely interested in the Chicago and other mining
property about Sandon, written fiom
New York, will be received with gladness by the people of Slocan. It will,
at least, sustain tho drooping spirits of
the disconsolate and tickle thn weary
hearts of the hopeful:
310 W. 46th St., New York City.
To the Editor of The Ledqk :
Dear Sir: 1 have not seen a copy of
your Ledge for a good while, hence I
know not what are your thoughts nor
what you may have said regarding tho
outlook for the Slocan country. It may
be that long waiting and "hope deferred
has made the heart sick," and perhaps
"many have, fallen asleep" through the
dull and uninteresting Btate of the
market for Slocan ores. It haa come to
mo in a round about way that lead re*
lineries, at least, are to bo established
in British Columbia. That being the
case, of course we shall not necessarily
have to depend on the United States for
a market. Selling agencies will be es*
elsewhere in the European and Asiatic
markets. These agencies, the estab-
lifthment of which will not necossarily
have to wait for Canadians to inaugurate them, hm the American, the German and the Jew, always on the alert,
will jump at the opportunity.
When the B. C refineries begin to refine, and our lead and silver begins to
flow to London and Hong Kong, look
out for a boom iu the Slocan that will
make all past booms look about like
three dimes, or "put them away hack
iu the shade." Fuithermore, the
American duty, which has been a ter
rible burden fur us to hear, will not
then riseupHitd haunt usas in the past.
The high grade of our ores is going to
enable us, if need be, to undersell any
country, but, as our production is small
we can let the United States regulate
the price, but not undersell us
So here is our New Years greeting to
the Slocan: Awake, for the day of thy
deliverance is at hand!

Prof. Jacques Loch, at the fourteenth
annual meeting of the, American Physiological Society at tho University of
Chicago, in a paper entitled "On the
Prolongation of Life of Unfertilized
Eggs of the Sea Urchin hy Potassium
Cyanide," told a group of the foremost
physiologists in America that bv means
of observation of tlie effects of certain
chemicals upon oggsnf the lower marine
animals he was ready to make a tentative definition of the heretofore unknown
nature of death.
Doath,'he allirmed, was mil a nega-
t've process, a simple breaking down of
the ticsues, as it bas been regarded up
to this time, but an active agent born
with the birth of the e^j; and destined,
if not checked, to gain the upper hand
of the life instinct and bring about extinction But greater even than tho
apparent discovery of this death agent
in all mihstaiices is Prof. I.oeb's announcement that he has been able to
check it, in the eggs of the sea urchin
at least, by means of chemical agents.
Thin, it is claimed, means nothing leu*
than that on a minute scale the secret
of eternal life is in the power of mankind
The experiments, the professor says,
were simple. Unfertilized eggs of tho
sea urchin were placed in a weak solu-
lion of potassium cyanide and abandoned for several days lu oidinaiy conditions au unfertilized C|ig il 1 fn in a few

has ever been in a position to dictate to the government, or that he
as Premier has ever taken Martin's
advice on matters of policy..
The Premier nmkes the Dominion
Government responsible for many
ills complained of and says that the
position that the government has
taken is that, in view of the large
revenues derived from British Columbia, the Dominion should in
duty bound assist in railway building in this province in at least, the
ratio of two to one and that when
the province gives aid to railway
companies there should be governmental control and a fair return in
interest for the aid and privileges
"With a population the smallest
of all the provinces," says he,
"British Columbia is the province
that has done the most for Canada.
It has in thirty years paid to the
Dominion $15,000,000 more than
it has got back. During the same
Dominion has been increased by
over $125,000,000."
Explaining the position taken
last year by the government on the
railway question, the letter says:
"Now then, I come to my position
in regard to Mr. Martin. Last
session, as everybody knows, the
government's policy in connection
with railways was being formulated, and after it had been submitted
to the house, tremendous pressure
was brought to bear on us
to force us to accept a
position submitted by the V. V.
& K, I shall not refer to the nature of tlie agitation or to those
who promoted it. The cry was for
competition in rail wayn and against
the C.P. R. Owing to tlie attitude
of a number of the supporters of
the government on this question a
crisis was created. We were practically hold up, and with the gun
to our heads asked to surrender or
submit to defeat. Because we refused to be held up in that fashion
the government has been denounced
as tools of the C.P.R. So far from

willing to wait forever, if nemwary,
more information than is afforded
by bare census returns. Natural
boundaries, resources, and special
conditions of each district Should
be considered, and having this in
view, the government is prepared
at the coming session to deal with
the matter in a way that will make
it satisfactory to all parts of the
province. In the way proposed.all
sections, will be consulted and all
interests considered, so that when
a measure is submitted the house
will be in a position to judge intelligently and act accordingly.
"The memorial of the mine owners setting forth their grievances

Beaumont, Cc.xas Wizard
Colonel Beverage Beaumont, of j "There can be no such thing as
Beaumont, Tex., is filling no small!social equality between the races,
part of the public eye in New York j sah. The color line is drawn and
these stirring days, and his nightly i can never be eradicated. Let me
conversations at the Waldorf-As- j give you an example of the way we
toria are coming to be regarded as j of the south feel in regard to this
the very fount of wisdom. Thej burning question. I have a half
colonel has traveled far and been | brother who is a mulatto, through
engaged in many pursuits, having, jno fault of his own. But do you
as he expresses it, "wooed the fickle suppose fo' a moment that I would
goddess as a bull puncher on the invite him to my table? Ten
western plains, steamboating on thousand times no, sah. Not on
the   Mississippi, -delving   for theiyo' life, sah, not on yo' life.   Why,
j sah, I could  not bring myself to
shining metal at Cripple CreeK and
bucking the tiger at New Orleans.''
"Strange to say, sah," explains
the colonel, further, "that I never
overtook the elusive jade and transfixed her with my glittering eye
until T returned, like the fatted
calf, to my native towns of Beaumont and turned my attention to
boring for oil,.I took up i\ few lessons along with my friend, Colonel
Jim Guffey, sah; and, wherever our
tools penetrated the waiting aud
willing earth there gushed forth
the golden stream of wealth. So
rapidly did we bring in gushers
Sii-J around Spindle Top that the stars
stopped whirling in ■ their spheres
in amazement. We threatened,
sah, to deluge the earth in oil, and
Mr. Rockefeller, finding his mighty
octupus inadequate to handling our
product, came personally and on
his knees begged us, for God's sake
to drop the drill.
"My impulsive nature prompted
me to boot him off the lease, but
Colonel Jim counseled moderation
and I reluctantly refrained. At
Mr. Rockefeller's urgent entreaty
we shut in our gushers, and stopped
boring. It was just as well, for we
already had mo' money than the
ameer of Afghanistan, aud what
was the use of worrying the ea^th
for mo"?
"Between you and me,sah," and
—thAcoloiielJowered his voice to a
confidential whisper, "it is my intention to retire from business and J
entah New York society. After a
life of sleepless activity this opium-
eating— er—lotus-eating oxietonec
will just about suit me, sah."
The colonel was asked what progress he had made toward entering
the Four Hundred.
"I cannot say, sah, that I have
made any particular progress. 1
have notjyet entahed the charmed
portal. I am, however, in plain
view of the gilded temple. When
yo' so-called Fo' Hundred ascertain
that Colonel Beverage Beaumont is
in town they will welcome me with
open arms."
It was thought well to drop a
hint to the colonel to the effect that
New York society hedges itself
about with the barbed wire of ex-
elusiveness. and it is no easy task
to set foot within the sacred in-
"Mo'honah to them, sah,"' observed the colonel; "mo' honah to
them. I nevuh etw»t pearls hefo'
swine, sah, and I should not seek
admission to a social circle that was
not exclusive to a degree. I come
of proud old ,-tock myself, wah, and
I hold aloof from the vulgah. 1

French Huguenots who settled

speak to him on the public streets.
I have borrowed money from him
on several occasions, aud have accepted liquor at his hands, but not
in public, sah, not in public." j
It was learned with deep regret
that there is a tinge of jealousy existing between Colonel Beaumont
aud Governor Hogg, also of Texas,
who not infrequently honors 6ur
ci ty with his presence.
"Don't ask me if I know that
mastodon,'' urged the colonel, when
he was asked if he had the pleasure
of Mr. Hogg's acquaintance.    "It
i§ no pleasure, I assure you,  sah,
to have, the acquaintance of a person like the one whose name yoxi
have introduced.    I read in one of
yo' yellow newspapers, -that balks
at no subject,  that he is in New
York at this moment inviting cap-
| ital to go south and perform some
wonderful stunts.   Inviting capital,
sah, has got to be a fixed habit
with Hogg.    I have climbed amid
the snow-clad peaks of the Jung-
frau,  where the  mountain   goat,
with icicles on his whiskers, leaps
from crag to crag, and there, with
his earmuffs on, was Hogg—inviting  capital.    I have traveled on
the plains of Egypt, where the war
chariots of the opulent  Pharaohs
are  buried  under   the  wrecks of
time, and there, as massive as the
pyramids themselves, was Hogg—
down the mucky Nile, where Cleo-
pati-a made googoo eyes at a Caesar,
ttlld there,the crocotlilco flying fi.om
him in affright, wa« Hoeer—inviting capital. 1 have turned my
prow homeward, and, inthe trackless north-west, where rolls the
Oregon and hears no sound save its
own (lashings, was Hogg—inviting
capital. I come to New York,sah,
the home of Mammon,where liquor
flows in rills and rivers; where the
sea rolls in upon the beach in one
ceaseless and sizzling gin fizz; where
beauty is enshrined in bowers and
smiles at you from behind damask
curtains; and, even here, sah, is
Hogg—inviting capital."
Thomas P. Goudie is an interesting study, He is accused of robbing the Bank of Liverpool of
»S50,000. When he was arrested
he had only *1,400. Where is the
rest ?
Ft is dangerotiH to discuss in
England any ease that is before the
courts. Yet no one in Calgary is
likely to serve on (loudie's jury,
and ns his case is one of the most
remarkable in the history of hank
robberies, it iH worth more than
ordinary notice.
Of all places in the world you
would hardly expect an ingenious
forger to come from the Shetland
Islands. Not that there was any-
Ah a matter of fact, sah-though! thing sublimely intellectual in
this is not for publication—we of jdoudif's methods. Like all great
the south are mighty superior to j bunk frauds this was worked by an
our extraction to the Fo' Hundred j elalioratc simplicity. If his necus-
of New York, who spring from thej ers are right Goudie forged a name,

ing the inevitable crash. The
money was not going in bets at all.
He was a victim of the confidence
trick on a superb scale,
The thousands were pocketed as
fast as they arrived in London. It
was, "Goudie, heads I win, tails
you lose!" with a vengeance. Who
got the money is a matter for speculation, only a judge dare condemn
a man before his trial, and newspapers must not rush in where
judges fear to tread. The trial
will be watched with the greatest
keenness, not alone by bankers,but
students of human nature as well.
It is impossible not to wonder at
the-.workings of a mind capable of
beating an intricate checking- system for two years, and yet not sufficiently worldly wise to discover
the infinitely clumsier method, by
which he himself was gulled.
It could hardly have been fear
of exposure that induced the man
to   keep on  taking risks.    There
was much more likelihood of discovery by his manager and fellow
clerks than betrayal by his accomplices.    When he was found but
he simply left the room, as if in a
huff,*.'to bring in another book. Instead,he walked out into the street.
At once the comprehensive detective  machinery   was   set   going.
Boats  and   trains    were   closely
watched.    A reward of SI,250 was
offered for Goudie's capture.   The
newspapers    theorized   him   into
Switzerland, tb the bottom of the
Liverpool docks,  everywhere, but
where he realty was.   All this time
Goudie was living in humble lodgings two or three miles away, disguised only by a seaman's  cap,
eating well, sending his landlady's
daughter out for the papers, taking
open interest  in   "the bank robbery,"  and actually marking the
paragraphs that appealed to him.
It was his landlady that gave him
to the police.    She saw his photograph in a newspaper    Her neighbors treated her derisively, heedless
that if she had  not done so after

abject self-a.basement and self-distrust.    If human nature was essentially evil, men were unfit for
self-government;   and   their   own
welfare required the suppression of
every revolt against the authority
of the spiritual powers.    Without
the recognition  of human  rights,
without the principles of personal
dignity and natural justice,  social
order became a legalized system of
oppression,    manliness   became   a
stigma, the love of freedom was denounced as a sign of an unregener-
ate heart.    Hence the national degradation of so many Arian nations,
their   sickening flunkeyism, their
heartless subservience to the caprices of brutal despots.    As Herbert Spencer demonstrated in his

This question of Canadian loyalty has many sides to it.     It is the
popular belief that loyalty consists
in being satisfied with existing conditions, content ever to be,  as we
have heard many an  Englishman
express it,   "blooming colonists,"
subservient to the laws of this and
the Mother Land.    This is loyalty
of a kind, but not the kind that is
going to build up Canada.     Canada has progressed to a certain extent under it, it is true,  but it has
been progress dearly paid for.    If
there can be any surer evidence of
wrong conditions than the showing
made by the last census it has not
been produced.     The increase in
population for the past ten years
has barely been.-. what the natural
birth rate Bhould have made  it.
And this includes the hordes of
Chinese,   Japanese and Dukobors
who, for "Imperial reasons," Canada has been infested with.     It
must  not be inferred   that Can-
[adians are a decaying people, or
that Canadian women are averse to
assuming the duties and responsibilities of motherhood-   A sturdier
race of men and more queenly women do not exist on the face of
God's green earth than Canadian
men and Canadian women.     Thoy
have the energy, the integrity, the
courage, the intellect, the power to
cope with any   people   under the
sun.    Why, then, does Canada jog
along in old colonial fashion with
natural  resources as great, if not
greater, than those of the nation to
the south while that country is going ahead at a rate that astonishes
the commercial world?
Many answers may be given to
this question and we would not
pretend to lay down set causes as
an answer.    But it can be said that
it is not because Canadians are less
intelligent, leas progressive,  nor
Clothes always look well

bateable question has been thrown
at us with the request .for comment:
"There is more direct evil exerted
to the social and business world by
the power of money from the pockets of the laboring class than from
all money corporations combined."
Agreed.    But that   does not lessen one iota, the crying need of the
cultivation   and practical  demonstration of the principles of socialism.    The moral and social evils
arising from the abuse of the power
of money  in  the pockets   of the
laboring class, are evils,   it is true,
that weigh heavily upon mankind.
They are the curse of the age, but
being  self inflicted,  and brought
upon man by his own free will,  it
would   be  difficult   to  make the
question a debateable one in the
light of a public issue.     That the
working class need moral and so-
oial   improvement  every socialist
will agree.   That the evils men inflict upon themselves are quite as
great and far reaching as the evils
inflicted upon them by the money
corporations socialists will generally admit.    But because self-inflicted evils exist is no excuse for the.
evils inflicted by others.     It is the
aim of socialists to show that these
evils do exist, and by checking one
to check the other.    It is a waste
of time to discuss the relative magnitude of the evils, or to excuse one
by saying the other exists.    Socialism would check the evils of individuals as well as the evils of corporations.

nature has endowed these peoples
and countries equally. Wherein,
then is the difference? Next to
the distressing lack of confidence
that Canadians exhibit in themselves, and their indifference to the
magnitude of their country's resources and capabilities, the great
drawback is the character of our
laws. Over in the states the people are cock-sure of everything in
relation to themselves and their
country. They know their capabilities. They can do anything
except make a new world and provide sun, moon and stars for it.
And every law made by them,
national, state and municipal, is
framed with a view to protecting
themselves and their resources. An
alien has no properly rights of citizenship. In Canada our laws are
so I'rained, lor "Imperial reasons,''
no doubt, that a Canadian does not
stand any better than a Chinaman.
The result is that aliens come over
here, partake of all the property
lights of ('ili/.(*ij,-*hi|», pocket the
proceeds and yo to their home
country to spend it. And Can-
ndians, those young, thrifty and
desirous of going ahead in the
world, tiring of the unequal pull in
the home land, cross the border
and are soon lost in (he whirl of
business in the American cities--
a loss to ('anudii and a gain lo the
slates, for wherever a Canadian
goi'n lie Lukes his place in Ihe front

like. The result of all this is thut
