Ted Eyton hustled into Slocan some
days ago with a bear story that would
make the hair of a tenderfoot stand
straight up. He was working single-
handed at the Exchange, and was
chased from the ore house by a grizzly.
Axe in hand he ran for the cabin, and
was making about 100 yards in ten seconds over the trail when he ran into
another bear. He managed to slide by
and set a hot pace down the home
stretch. The bears got tangled up on
the trail and stoppea to fight it out.
This saved Ted. He got into camp and
barricaded tbe door just in time to have
the grizzlies bump up against it. Next
day they were still therejmd with them

This is the biggest mining country I
ever saw. Butte, Montana, is not in it,
for one mine in Butte there are ten
here. And I would say tliat instead of
mining on the surface for shrubbery
and gardens and a big display of electric lights, like mines ou Red Mountain,
they mine for gold; they don't make
any show here. The machinery is
covered with suitable buildings, but
there are no shaft houses to house a
gallows frame. We are boarding at
the company's boarding house. It costs
us £6 per month for board and room. It
is! winter or early spring here now. and
the weather is as hot as it is in Rossland in summer.

For the last week the Granby smelter
has had but one furnace in operation,
due to the low water in the North Fork
of Kettle river—the lowest for several
years As heretofore this smelter has
relied entirely on the North Fork for
power, the dry season haa resulted in
temporarily curtailing to some extent
the normal output of the reduction
works. In turn this has caused a curtailment of ore shipments from the
company's Phoenix mines, eo that for
some days past 25-car ore trains have
been sent out every other day.

chinery Is now in process of manufacture, and is expected to be put up und
'operated late this fall or early iu the
winter. The capacity of the mill will
be about 200 tons of ore daily, which
can be readily iucreased by the addition of more stamps to the battery already ordered. Tne order for this machinery was secured by the Boundary

The following communication appeared in tho Toronto Globe, written
by John Simpson of Nelson:
"I hope you will kindlv give me permission through your columns to make
known to your readers the unfortunate
state of affairs that exists throughout
the part of British Columbia of which
Nelson is the commercial center. A
few years ago West Kootenay and the
western part of East Kootenay were in
a most prosperous condition, and furnished happy homes for thousands of
contented people. Today all is changed,
not through any exhaustion of the
natural resources of the region, which
are immense; but through wholly artificial causes, which the government of
Canada can at any time remove. The
entire district is, in fact, in the clutches
of a foreign trust, and its chief industry,
the mining of silver-lead ore. has been
deliberately throttled bv the trust,
with the object of restricting the output
of lead, so that they can charge exces
sive prices and make excessive gains.
"I refer to the smelter trust, or lead
trust, of the United States, an organization that was formed for the express

dtistry, andTimiting the" output. The
practice of this organization is to hunt
down without mercy all companies or
corporations who show a tendency to become their rivals, and they treat Canada as a part of their game preserve,
although they owe allegiance to a
foreign flag, and form a part of a nation that for many years has been distinctly unfriendly to Canada. Why
should unfriendly foreigners be assisted in their attempts to injure loyal
"The United States lead trust was
formed for the purpose of limiting the
output, and the chief step thoy took in
this direction was a refusal to" buy Canadian lead. The government in
power at Washington owed its existence to the trusts, and was bound to do
their bidding The members of the
lead trust, therefore, called upon the
United States government to place an
enormous duty on lead, a duty so largo
that it closed up the Canadian mines
'•They said to themselves: 'The
Canadian market ior the products of
lead is entirely opeu to us. Wo will
shut out Canadian lead entirely The
tariff gives us absolute control of the
markets of the Ci ited States, aud if
wu keep our eyes on the Canadians and
stamp out anv effort on tlieir purl to
make use of their mines, by flooding
Canada for a time witli our own lead hi

no just grounds for complaining, as the
people here are compelled by the tariff
to buy their furniture, sowing machines,
pianos, organs, biq cles, cotton goods,
meat, canned fruits and vegetables,butter, eggs, coal oil. flour, rolled oata,
and, in fact, almost everything they use
in Eastern Canada, Manitoba and the
Northwest territories, when they could
buy them across ihe line in the United
States as much lower prices if there
were no duties to pay. The people of
British Columbia contribute in proportion to their numbers a much larger
share of the revenue than the people of
any other part of Canada, and do not
get very much back in the shape of
grants for" public purposes or in any
other way. In 1899 the people of
Canada as a whole contributed $8.93
per capita to the Dominion revenue,
and the people of British Columbia contributed $25.67 per capita. The people
of the Kootenays are, therefore, entitled
to an increase1 in the duty on lead, and
to aid in establishing a refinery."
The American Iron and Steel association has received direct from the mauu-
iacturers-the-statistics-of— t-he-produe—-
tion of pig iron in Canada in the first
six months of 1902. The 'figures show
a slight increase as compared with the
last half of 1901, but a very great Increase as compared with the first half of
that year.
In the first six months of 1902 the
production of all kinds of pig iron in
the whole of the Dominion amounted to
157,891 gross tons, as compared with
149,952 tons in the last half of 1901, and
95,021 tonB iu the lirst half of that year.
The Increase in the first half of 1902
over tho last half of 1901 was 7,852 tons,
or over 5 per cent., while the increase
over the first half of 1901 was 02,780
tons, or over 66 per cent Of the total
production in the first half of 1901,
12,000 tons wore Bessemer and low
phosphorus and 58,209 tons wore basic
nig iron. The coke furnaces made
1-47,892 tons and the charcoal furnaces
9,912 tona. Neither spiegeleison nor
ferromanganese haw lieen made in
Canada for several years.
Tho unsold iron held by Canadian
pig iron manufacturers on June 80,
1902, none of wliich was intended for
their own consumption, amounted to
H7.721 gross tons, as compared with 59,.
172 tons on December HI, 1901, and
28,711 tons on June ao, 1901. Of the
unsold iron on hand on June HO, 1902,
less than 2,im; tons wore made with
charcoal, the remainder being coke
On June 80.19o2, Canada had 14 completed blast furnaces, of which 8 were
in blast and 0 Idle. Of this total nine
were equipped lo use coal for fuel, 4 to

Bystander's Comments.
Mr. Kosb, it seems, las gone overl
to protectionism, and said, that freel
trade will not do for Canada. The
profession of it did very well for]
the advancement of lir. Sore'
party to Dominion office. KMr.

tbe eelSsSncss of tbe band of mon '
opohes which dominate the policy I
of the United States and ib aided1
in its game by anta-American dem
onstratiooB here, bis words would i
be undeniably troe Bnt if freedom of exchange will not do for
Canada for what country iu-the|
world will it do? Our land ifl en
tirely northern, and' we mnat import some of tbe necessaries of'hfe
and many of its luxuries; from
southern   countries.   Onr market

Thereos no safeguard agamBfesneb
influences olher ihtm the election
to the legislature of men of independent characterandability, with
ont regard to any shibboleth If
tohojie fortius is chimerical, tbe
outlook of govemmentfor the peo-
ple is not bright.
It is difficult to follow with patience all the proposals of protectionists for bedeviling production,
trade and transportation. Hbt one j
of these is conceived in the broad
interests of the people. Hot o
of them ia free from the taint
personal or political objecta. What
is production bnt a soft name for
monopoly ? What else has it been
in the United States? We are told
that a return to that policy here
woold be particularly beneficial to
but, by the intervals between our
provinces divided' into- four; and
we cannot exgect to manUfecturel
on the largest and cheapest scale.1
On the other batld wehaveasuper-
abundanceof natural products of I
the most exchangeable Mnd^-Ium-
ber minerals; and wheat of the
highest quality—-ibr which we re-
cinire access to foreign markets.
That by shutting our door against
foreign trade we may increase the
wealth of ia few monopolists ia
clear enough.: That we caniii-
crense the wealth and well being
of oar people at large, it is surely
a paradox to maintain.
An American, genator ..argues
thet the United States would be I
losers by reciprocity, because they
would be giving a market of seventy j
millioits iu retu-Fnisfor a market of
Only five millions Tbe market of
seventy millions, according to thw
'luminous reasoner would be di
minished by having five millions I
addedto it I The United States at
large are losers by havingfreetrade!
^ith the State of Hew Yerk,
Canada is loser "by "having free]
trade with the Maritime* provinces;
and England by having free trade
with Kent I
If by retaliatory legislation wej
could force open, the American!
market, though the process wouldj
be -expensive, nobody but- a purist
of free trade would object Re-1
taliation used for suoh a purpose* is
practically a measure of free trade
But we know too well that in our I
case it would be futile.
In the meantime a pretty active!
movement in favor of taraft t^eCI
sion aiid reciprocity withCanada-is
on foot in the United States. It
will have great difficulties to overcome being opposed by a serned
phalanx of monopolist interests
On the other hand it bas the plain I
interest of a highly' intell^ent people on its side By a friendly" at-1
titude Canada may^fbsferalidl advance it. By the unfriendly, atti
tude, which our protectionists and*
Jingoes wish us to assume it Will
be discouraged and thrown back.
Unfortunately, there are those to
whom such a result would? not be
unwelcome. Though there is os .
tensibly war, tbere is --practically'
alliance between. monopoly on this
aiid monopoly on the other side of j
the line.
when we hear of a former in the
United States selling out for three
hundred millions after having
twenty millions a
year for a series of years by his
concern. Whence is it snppo=ed
that all those millions come?
Whence- can they come but out of
the pocKeteofthecoiiBumer? There
must bea tariff for revenue so long
indirect taxation prevails
Otherwise there is no exception to
the wisdom of letting nature have
her course and allowing* the people
to produce that which they can
produce best and- bny where they
can buy to best ndvantage. Gan it
be necessary to repeat that the people ofthe United States owe their
prosperity riot to a monopolist
tariff,; but td their enjoyment of
free trade over, a- whole continent,
producing within itself almost every
important article of consumption?
People in England are mistaken
if they think that Sir Wilfrid
Laurier, in his present position,
fully - represents French Canada.
As premier of the Dominion he. has
to take British Canada into account, and is always balancing
himself on a political tight-rope.
The more genuine representative
of French Canada is Mr. Bourassa
whose articles in the Monthly Review on tlfe French Canadian well
deserve the attention of the British
"statesmen The first, which has
just appeared, is historical. But'
'it concludes with a pretty clear description of the; attitude of the
Frehch-Canadian, who is loyal, but

are composed of affection and self-

properly understood and dealt
with, are safer than sentimental
and noisy declamations. But
they are to endure, they must not
be strained by fresh ties which the
French Canadian does not-feel

Canada is a great country;
One of the greatest on earth today.
It is big enough and rich enough
to support a population of sixty or
eighty millions.
It has a.population of about six
Canada is an old colony;
It has been inhabited by white
man nearly 400 years.
One hundred years ago Canada
was known as an ice-bound area of
unknown extent:
A vast someplace frozen to the
north pole.
Fifty years ago people began to
look to it as a possible inhabitable
A land of snow and wild animals,
with here and there a Hudson Bay
station, far distant from Montreal.
Twenty-five years later it was
spotted with a few cities of promise,
and towns and villages of insignificant proportions.
If you were to have gone from
Canada to the Old Country or tlie
New England States at that time,
the question would have been asked
you by everybody who had a relative or friend here—
' 'I suppose you met So-and-So.''
Answered in the negative, they
would look at you in astonishment
and add—
" Why he lives in Canada.''
Ten years ago capitalists began
to invest in Western Canada;
Industries sprang up here and
there, and towns grew into cities.
Today these cities have developed
into greater, and the industries are
assuming magnificent proportions;
Today tbe name of Canada is on
everybody's lips, and thousands
are flocking to see the "Lady ofthe
Millions of dollars are seeking
investment here;
Nature's chambers of mineral,
agricultural and industrial wealth
are being unlocked by the key of
progress, and where stagnation prevailed we find today flowing
streams of happy humanity.
Ten years more and what will
we say of Canada!
Ten millions population?
Yes, all of that,   and perhaps
fifteen millions, if Canadians will
break the spell of dollar_greed that
taxation, Begging- the-unions'to keep
quiet, for a time is not calculated to ensure the utmost contentment -arid'stability .—London B C. Review.
Establish the thought that all religions are human, marking the
different steps of its progress, that
uo one cliureh nas a right to domineer over the other; that no one
system of belief is privileged, over
the other; establish that belief, and
wars of religion cease, the dogmatism of theologians is at end, there
is no more of that bitter, bloodthirsty hate that has curst'Christianity from the beginning, the
reign of dogmatism is over, the
creeds are disenchanted—are exorcised; the men that abhorred each
other are brothers; the priests no
longer administer sacrifices in the
name of the only God; there are
no more missionaries going abroad
to convert to the letter of a faith
a people who have a better faith
than theirs. At once the scepter
falls from the hand of priestcraft,
the crown is taken from the old
ecclesiastical dignitaries, and a
sweet feeling of sympathy runs
through the world from end to end.
It is not wealth, position or
honors that will insure us happiness; but it is the faculty of looking on the best side of whatever
may come into our lives. It is the
seeking for the good, the true and
beautiful that will bring these
things into our souls and make us
full of their sweet, joy-creating
presence.—Elmina I). Senker.
It is only by the exercise of reason that man can discover God.
Take away that reason and he
would be incapable of understanding anything, and in this case it
would be just as consistent to read
even the book called the bible to a
ham as to a man. How, then, is
it that these people pretend to
reject reason.—Thomas Paine.
While a healthy body helps to
make a healthy soul, the reverse is
yet more true. Mind lifts up, purifies, sustains the body. Mental
and moral activity keeps the body
healthy, strong, and young, preserves from decay, and renews life.
James Freeman Clarke.

has clouded the industrial world in
Canada these many years;
Break the spell of fear and
toadyism that has characterised all
the government's dealings with
the Mother Land and other nations;
Break the power of the cent that
plays such sad havoc with the happiness and living of the working
masses in the East;
Break up the accursed political
riugs that corrupt the people and
make Justice miscarry.
The new era in Canada is well
Its greatness will be proclaimed
the world over;
Its wealth will add millions to
the world's enrichment;   •
Its enlivened industries will encourage vigor in the people;
And a vigorous people in a land
blosBed by nature as ours is!
Ought to make us the wealthiest
colony under tho British flag, and
therefore of the world.
