Smelter Grab-net 1$ Out
There is b'.tter resentment in theSlo-
can. Git is aimed at the smellers of the
district—the Hull Mines smeller at Nelson and the 0, P. Ii. smelter at Trail
And it all comes from the disposition or
the government at Ottawa to bonus the
lead industry.
When the bonus was given a vear or
more ago on lead refined iu Canada,
the smelters agreed to give to the lend
producers a share of such bonus. But
thev have not done so On the contrary, the smelters have gobbled up the
bonus and pinned the lead producers
down tighter than they were before the
bonus was given.
When the government at Ottawa intimated'that a change would be ma le
iu the terms on which the bonus would
be granted, so that the lead producers
would benefit bv it, Manager Aldridge
of the Trail smelter, and his tools at Ottawa immediately spread their* net to
catch the bonus
As a result of their sharp work, a
telegram from Ottawa states that the
government propose to grant a benus
to the lead industry conditionally that
on.y lead ore smelted in Canada is to
participate and that of the total amount
paid in any one year two fifths is to go
to the Canadian smelters. As the Hail
Mints smelter aud the Canadian smelter
at Trail are the only two lead plants in
the Dominion, the plan proposed ificar-
ried out would mean that two-fifth of
any bonus earned by the mines on ore
sent to these plants would be handed
over to them Lead ore shipped out of
''tbe^oiintry-woHid"T=es,eive"TiT»^id*nnfd
the home smelters would have the mar
ket practically in tlieir own hands and
could regulate prices accordingly.
This action of the smelter hogs has
roused the people to a state of bitter re-
eentmatit. '1 hivletid* mine owners are
tick of being bled by these companies,
and Ihe people are backing them np in
their demands for justice at the hands
of the government
As soon as the fact became known
what the smelters are doing at Ottawa,
action was taken throughout thu district.
Saturday evening a mass meeting was
held In the court house to discuss the
governmentls action rigarding the lead
tariff. The meeting was well attended
and hot from center to circumference
The following resolution yras passed
and money raised on the spot to send it
to the proper parties ai Ottawa:
"Whereas, the existing bonus on refined lead is absorbed by the refiners
and haa not benefitted the lead miners}
••Therefore, ho it resolved? First, this
meeting deeply regrets-refusal of gov.
ornmoiit to grant protection to lead
mining commensurate with that given
other Industries; second, that a bonus
to bo effective, must go directly to lead
miner, whether ore Is smelted nnd re
fined lli Canada or abroad "
Monday evening another telegram
was tent from New Denver stating
that
"The allver-lead miner* of tbe Slocan
don't want any bonus with aC IMl
string to It."
At Nelson another meeting was held
and tha following resolution passed:
'•Resolved, that In tho opinion of this
association aay bounty granted by the
Sovernment in aid ot lead mining shall
e payable directly and entirely to the
ore-producers; and that In the event of
unjust charges and for disposal of sur-
Clui production, ores receiving the
nunty mav bo smelted or refined
abroad and tho product be admitted
into Canada subject to a duty of 15 percent upon the cost of smolllng or refln
lag abroad."
The caccntlve of the Provincial Mining association, now In teuton at Victoria, have made representation* to the
Dominion government on the subject
ef lead dutlea and bonus. They re
solved: "'Ihat this association has
learned with dismay that the honorable
Ibe minister of finance for Canada has
Intimated in his budget speech that It ia
not proposed lo make any changes in
the <ltt!l«* en lead during tbe present

PROSHKOTS   IIKIOHTKNINQ.
Silver is now quoted at 58J£; lead is
advancing in price, and zinc is in great
demand.
When the lead miners get the proposed bonus, and are relieved from the
burdens put upon them by the Canadian smelter companies, the Slocau will
have a chance to fiy skywards.
The Lead and Zinc News of St. Louis,
one of the best authorities on the con
tineut on metal affairs, says thas the
present zinc and lead situation in the
States is quite unprecedented in late
years. The stock on hand is nearly
exhausted and supplies are not keeping
up with the demand
The News says editorially: "There is
no longer any question of* 'what shall
be done with the surplus of zinc ores in
tlieJopliu district" There is no surplus Instead, an inspection of the
output refolds to oate shows that the
output of the district is only about 5,000
tons per week, whilutiie normal weekly
output should be nbout 0,000 to 6,250
tons. Plainly speaking a number of
the mines are not producing as much
ore as tliey should and the output now,
figuring in the weekly returns, is in
part that of mines which haye been
working double shift. Private advices
from Jop'in declare that the amount of
4iiu>spu(Aiiig*-w,lucluia~l>eing—done-ia-not-
asgreat as it has been in other years;
that every mine in the district which
can is working two shifts aud putting
out as much ore as possible. Some of
the more frank operators are admitting
thnt unless.the work of developing new
in ines is pushed more vigorously, the
output will remain at shout the same
figures for the remainder of the year
That being accepted as a fsct, then
there will undoubted!) be a continuance
of the present favorable high prices for
zinc ore With the demand for the
Joplin district ores recognized and the
knowledge that on account of tlieir ex-
cetitloiinl purity they will be constantly
in demand, the owner of a good zinc
mine iu that field will have reason to
congratulate himself upon his excellent
prospects for returns. The buying of
ore is nominally upon nn assay ba«ls,
yet it lis a fact that tlie producers of
choice ores have been receiving higher
prices than those paid under tho assay
basis, ns announced the past week by
tie ore buyers, which has been $88 and
138 50, with the top price averaging 111
for oro running 68 per cent
The demand for lead Is apparently
very satisfactory throughout (he entire
country, Competition between the
Guggenheim Exploration Co. and the
Independent smelters of Mexico is ie-
markably keen. In the Western Sta'es
the production has been greatly stiinu
tateit bv thu increased prices, The
I'ootir d'Aiene consolidation la unquea
lionably being pushed by Interest*
which are akin to those which dominate
the melting combine.
The east Is practically bare ot |L
lead.   Among the trade the uast fort
night has beeu a rumor which declared
that ou March 10th the smelting coin
bine did not have more than loo car
loads of pig lead in its bins    By some
the reserve was placed ns low nn 40
carloads.   Admitting  that the higher
figure was correct) the condition has
beeu unprecedented   iu   late   years.
There la practically no lead on this
market and demands sufficient to care
for the production for the next fiO or
90 days.
Following upon the heels of the ad
vanco In the price of pig lead the price
on all lead products has been advanced,
with tho single exception of mixed
paints, There Is not that understanding among paliu grinders that there is
among manufacturers and thus far no
one has seen fit to take tbe step. It ia
certain that white lead will take another
advance In price in the event that the
price of pig lead should be incieased.
There is appamntlv reaaon to believe
that the grinders will get together soon
and that their products will be advanced

A few months ago the matter earn*

«l«aniitle» for shipment to Tots. Kansas,
and other reduction centers across t}te
Una. At that juncture the general
manager tA the Trail work* threw cold

p*ft«« Inodant io the estabU»baaent of
a sit* waeber was not j*a*lili*»i by fh*
amount ol ainc ore then In sight, fin
parenlly subsequent developments have
dehvinxtrated that the supply of siinc
ores was larger than at first, expected,
for the smelter has altered its views
and is now buying all the zinc ores
offered.
The Trail smelter has several metal
urgisis in the field, securing information as to the construction and installation of apparatus to. handle zinc silver
lead ores.   The statement is made that
the company  has not definitely coil
eluded to put in the works and that, a
decision will not be reached for several
weeks, or until the return' from Ottawa
of Walter H. Aldridge, general manager.   That a conclusion is practically
arrived at, however, would Beein to be
indicated by the company's policy of
buying all the sine ores in sight
It is generally understood that zinc
silver-lead ores" are the most difficult of
all to treat on an economical and profitable basis, making a had third as com
pared with gold-copper and silver-lead
ores Because of this fact and the com
paratively small supply of zinc silver-
le«d ores in sisrht. it te generally understood that the Trail Smelter declined
to *«o iiito the proposition until it was
seen that the production of these ores
had 'reached reasonably substantial dimensions, so that their hand was practically forced in the matter. It Is
equally generally understood that having taken the matter in hand the company will handle it on a broad commercial basis, which will have tbe effect
of increasing its reduction works at
Trail and further stimulating the pro
duetion of zinc ores throughout the
Slocan.

Editor New Denver Lkdok:
Dear Sm—A good deal has been
said and wiitten about mining, and
jkIs 11 a.ou r-la ws-a re-very—good j-t be-! a w
regarding public safety is not equal to
public requirements.; Frequently operators go and leave their work in a
dangerous condition The country is
getting full of old abandoned prospects
whose shafts and upraises are not prop
«rlysguarded I^think;-the Inw should
require all such places to be filled, and
until they are'Jled and abandoned, to
be kept guarded by clearing the brush
and dirt away fnr at least six feet
around the hole, and bo fenced in by a
railing. This would give a man a
chance (or his life.
Being a prospector myself, I know
the danger, as some of the workings I
havo seen will soon be entirely covered
with brush. Upraises are the most
dangerous; there is nothing but the hole
and It soon grows over. Yours respectfully, J T Wilsok.

Sandon's riyalo-concerto war is over,
and the dove of peace again hits with
folded wings over the hearthstone ol
every home.
Tuesday evening the auditorium of
the Miners' Union hall was crowded to
the doors And it was a very demon
strr.tive audience. The rival concert
given by the young people had attracted
the boys from the hills and they were
there in large numbers.
The concert was slow between numbers, but interesting throughout, and it
was so evenly matched that the judges
demanded the privilege of holding up
their decision until some future day
During tho performance the doors of
the hall were open, one of them unfortunately so, but when the time came
for the judges to give their decision
tley wero all clostd and there was un
chance.nf escape, so the wiee ones did
not decide. However, it must be admitted by all, that the memory of the
performance of the young ladles leaves
a better taste in the mouth.
: One very pleasant feature of the
ladies' half was thequaiut, hand-written
programmes furnished.
The ladieB opened with a very graceful bunting drill iu which the Mi»ses
Pound, Misses Warner, Misses McDowell, Miss Smith, Miss Crawford,
MissTrienarv, Miss Jones, Miss Weder
house, Miss Thompson and Miss Carr
took part, with Miss Cliff at the piano
Then came a recitation by Tinnny
McDonald, and a chorus by the young
.ladies-namecl-abnve^theii-a-reeitntioir
dialogue by the Misses Warner and Misc
Thompson; then a tableau, "The Old
Missouri Shore," with singing accom
paniment; then a piano duet by Miss
Cliff and Miss Smith; then club Winging by MissG. Warner and Miss Trlen-
ary)then a vocal duet by the Misses
Pound; then the tableau, " the Sleeping Beauty" (In color) by Miss Thompson, with singing, closing with another
chorus by the group.
When the boys took hold they gave
a performance that was distinctly different from thnt of the ladies There
was more life, more jnoise, more dust
raised, but there were evidences of less
practice and no uniformity. They went
in to give the miner boys a good time
and they did it.
Messrs Sharp, Hoggan, Crawford
and Ritchie opened the latter half wilh
a harmonica and drum quartette; then
George Hogu'sn sang in his mallow bass
"The Setting of the Sun;' then "Sailing," by Captain Jamleson and chorus;
then a selection by the famous orchestra M Messrs Ritchie, Sharp, Crawford
and Hoggan; then Billy Garbutt showed
some sleight of band tricks he learned
ut the Slocau Star, and "Windy Bill''
Downing brought on his accolactlc
lioupof What Is (ts. Right here an
unfortunate accident happened. "Windy
Bill" had to move rapidly around llie
stage aud lu running through the s'de
scene* hit the wrong door nnd ran nut
Into space and fell 10 nr 10 feet tu the
ground. Hu siihtaiiicd serious bruises
and wns taken in hand by the doctor
This delaved tlie performance for seme
time, and spoiled the greatest fun-
producer the boys had on their programme.
Following this the "Clown Kid" tried
to slug "Gnngnn Kyea,"and the'Wol-
astics finished up with a chorus nf local
♦hots    Messrs Lovering, Sharp, Hog
gan, Ritchie and  Karr, gave a good
premutation of a railway station waiting room scene; thru came tha beat f«a
lure of the last half "Tenting nn the
Old Camp Ground." iu which W Cliff
did the «wlo work aud Crawford, Ho:
gau and Ritchie the chorus,   Geo Hog
gan then read Bob Mclntoah's latest on
the Ivanhoe mine, a hot poetic number
on the comforts of bunk-house life.
Harry Sharp then gave a Hayseed Talk
nn local matters thnt bit close and scattered few chips    This was followed by
another   selection   by  the  baud  anil
everybody went home happy.

SILVKIt   NOT   SO   LOW.
Thn price of silver has been stesdilv
advancing recently, but there is nothing to warrant the belief that it is going
much higher It continues very linn,
however. The Philippine purchase
will extend over several months and
help to support the market Some
European buying for coinage purpose.*
is reported from London, though the
demand from India is stationary. Negotiation!! over the Chinese iiidiinnity
still continue, and it is now stated that
the American position with regard to
the payments, which is that they must
be made at the rate at which; the Chh_
neseHHei*brought"iirgoidTfrtii^iinotKe~
treaty was pigned, and not at current
exchange, will be maintained by the
U S. government. It is doubtful,*however, whether the European powers
will consent to this view of tho treaty.
Speaking of the outlook for the white
metal, the Mining and Kngiueering
Review says:
"Silver will probably advance in
price to 61 cents or hotter, owing to the
strength given the market by the purchase of la.'ge quantities by the government for coinage for the Philippine
islands As that Is a new market for
silver and ns it will take three years
for the mints to complete the orders for
the present urgency and for other reasons, silver mining will be profitable for
several years to come. The present'
authorized purchase of silver for the
Oriental pofisessions la but the beginning of a continued series of lesser pur
chases, for as the Islands become settled
aud I uslness relations with the United
States and other count lies increase the
demand for an exchango medium will
also increase, As time passes the
American peso will bo used in the
Islands to au extent as will gradually
displace the Mexican dollar, and the
silver for the peso will he purchased In
the United States and produced by
Americans from American silver mines,
And that is not all. The peso will open
a market for American silver in oilier
Oriental countries where tbe Mexican
dollar Is now used extensively."

It ib aa injustice to tax the people of tbe Slocan for nearly everything they nse, and then give them
a stone when they want a lead
tariff. 	
The   government   will have to
run the coal mines in this province
before  long.    Tlie people should
not suffer because labor and capital
, cannot agree.
The "Victoria cabinet ministers

are jost now finding it difficult to
attend the Oliver investigation
committee's meetings. "Previous
engagements" are at a premium.
Have yon noticed how conspicu-
ons the Slocan mine managers and
mine owners make themselves by
their absence from the mass meetings held in afl the towns of the
district to protest against the government's anti-lead-tariff policy ?
Tbe indomitable Joe Martin has

else. If the lead producers of the
Slocan know what they want, *nd
know how to get it, tbey should
spend their time in telling the government what it is and how best
to grant it, and not m passing inflammatory resolutions that damn
everything and suggest nothing.
Beadisg between the lines of
minister Fielding's budget
it appears that a closer commercial
relationship between the United
States and Canada in the matter of
tariff is probable in the near ftt-
ture. Tbe iact that negi
are now in progress toward this
end, was given by tiie minister as
a reason for the government's decision not to interfere with the
present tariff on lead and lead products. If the Dominion government can succeed in having the
$3E) import duty on Canadian lead
ore removed hy the United States,
it will be of more benefit to the
lead mining industry than if a tariff
on imported lead products were
imposed. •

Is every mining community
there are those who never miss an
opportunity to belittle the enteiv
prise of others. They are not "hof

anything else; the3' are lis6ur

part they consume their own
product.
The hand of the majority is seen
in the action of the government at
Ottawa upon tbe lead tariff. In
the Slocan millions of dollars of
capital are rusting and thousands
of people are suffering from ennui,
simply because Onr protectors st
Ottawa only protect the sections of
Canada where votes are thickest.
Mark Haxxa differs from President Parryof the National Manufacturers* association, in regard to
labor unions. Parry several days
ago said at New Orleans that labor
unions were lawless organizations,
rnled by force and not by wisdom.
Hanna last week said that mm
who criticize unionism in that
way only demonstrate their ignorance of the workings, of unions,

the blaze was first discovered, the

cannot be given any credence, for
the lime in question was stored in

the fire started from a cigar or

The sympathy of all is extended
to Mr. Clever and Mr. Smith, the
heavy losers. Mr. Smith has been
partieaiary unfortunate. To suffer

Small communities suffer much
from a lack of unity caused by factions, raging from mild to virulent types. The life of small hamlets often centers between two rival
merchants, resulting in much of

i that the result of two opposing forces of equal momentum is
In like manner the activities
of small communities result in an
endless mild warfare with deadening results, socially, morally and
in a business sense. But put all
these small forces in one direction,
and the good that conld be accomplished :is surprising. We have
often heard the remark, which
seems not altogether without foon-'
dation, that the slow development
of our mining industry is due to
this spirit of Canadians endeavor-
ing to keep anyone elsi from going
too far ahead. In public business
the same bad negative spirit exists.

English, papers of recent dato
are full of the Burr colony, the organization of which lias evidently
aroused great interest throughout
Britain. Then* is <ne feature of
this movement, says the Winnipeg
Free Press, admittedly the greatest
in tho history of British emigration
to Canada, that is giving experienced and cautious Canadians some
misgiving. British papers state
that the colonists are largely clerks
and artisans -men unaccustomed
to the use of axe or spade, and who
never turned a furrow or built a
stack in their lives.
Tlie people of the Canadian West
desire greatly to have British settlers come to ManitVja and the
Territories; hut they desire, that
the settlers should know exictly
tho conditions of life and hib>r of
tho country to which they a'e coming. Thoy fear that men of sedentary occupations, inexpe e ,ced in
the methods of agriculture necessary to this country, men unaccustomed to manual labor, or to anything outside the routine of an
oflice, factory or store, may come
out under the impression tliat
farming in the West means "tickling the ground with a plow, and it
laughs into smiling harvests." To
any with such views disillusionment would not be a pleasant experience.
British settlers of this typo have
couio to Canada before. Many of
them have adapted themselves to
the totally new conditions of life,
and by energy, thrift and determination have become among the
most prosperous of Canadian farmers. But others of them have
failed utterly. They were foredoomed to failure, not because of
the conditions of tho agricultural
life in Western Canada, but bo-
cause of conditions inherent in
themselves. Men without energy
and .adaptability will fail, even in
a country offering such agricultural
advantages as ours.

With the similarity in conditions
along the Atlantic foreshore, both
in Canada and Newfoundland, the
the former country has naturally
looked to tho hitter's naval force
as the model for her own. The

Canada's militia, though' it may
be used for imperial defense in an
emergency.

A   COLONIAL   NAVY.
 Canada is_about_to_ create.a_co.-.
lonial navy, and as the first step,
toward this end will e.-tablish a
naval militia ou the Atlantic seaboard, where thero are thousands
of men engaged in the oil-shore
and Grand Banks fisheries. Tu
provide tho requisite machinery
for the founding of tlio organization, the government has dispatched
the British naval commander in
charge of her fisheries protection
squadron to examine into the workings of tho Newfoundland naval
reserve, with a view to modeling
the proposed Canadian battalion
upon tho highly successful little
brigade in.tho island colony.
Tho Newfoundland reserve is an
imperial body, a branch of tint
trained around the coast line of tho
British isle.-*. It !h recruited among
tho young fishermen, and regulations as to enlistment, training,
payment aud servilo rire identical
with those in vogue in England.

nicely 'sailed, a greenhorn from
New Mexico came along in search
of a good thing.
"I marked him down for my
mutton, and for ten days I had
him iu tow. He didn't know a
hole in the ground from a buzzard'
in a tree top, and my conscience
really accused me the way I worked
my mine off on him. He had no
cash, but he had a deed of 200
acres of land in his territory, and
when we exchanged even up I
made out that I was $1,000 ahead
of the game."
"And how did you comcout?"
was asked.

"I miglifc have swallowed my

the whole business slid down into
a valley and made a new farm of
JJ00 acres, which the tenderfoot
went back nnd duly jumped under
a law of tho land."
SKLF-COJJTKOL VS. MEDICINE.
"Self-control'as a cure for nervous
diseases is a remedy more efficacious than medicine at times,"
said a prominent Washington practitioner, "and since its exercise is
a mat ter of mere habit, I will tell
you about it.
"Nervousness is a disease, and
nervous persons, especially women,
are v. torture to themselves, an object of pity on the part of some and
contempt on the part of others.
Nervousness in itself, nervous prostration in its various stages and
the different forms of nervous
fright and irritability largely result from persons allowing themselves to yield to certain channels
of thought which have fear as a
basis.
"It makes slight difference/what
this element of fear may" be,
whether the loss of money, or a
beloved one, position, or what else,
tho subject nurses this dread little
by little, until except in the case of
a sudden and powei ful shock, imperceptibly, but with insidious certainty, the nerve centers feel the
strain and gradually give way.

medical treatment in some instances the beneficial effects of sedatives or tonics are often 'neutralized
by the patient refusing to exorcise
self-control and in nursing the particular trouble which may be preying upon tho mind. When expostulated with tho invariable reply is, 'I can't help it.'
"Persons of nervous temperament and in various stages of
nervous diseases will be astonished
to see how quickly the physical
will respond to a de-termination of
the mind not to yield to certain
lines "of familiar thought which
constitute tho subject's troubles.
They will lind that the brain may
be said to bo a creature of habit, in
that certain lines of thought will
force themselves and often at certain times of tho day moro prominently, as in the morning. Endeavor to develop a feeling of don't
care, and maintain it. Once the
subject determines to curb ami control thought, the brain will be
found vo yield to control, slowly
at flrHt, but surely when tho subject persists as much as his or her
feeble will power allows in not
thinking about it.
"To aid in this great fundamental euro of nervousness and
nervous troubles, travel lately
conduces, because ns simple ns it
is, when persons travel they have
to do thingn tliey do not wteh to
do, entailing i. chango of thought,
coim'qiient relaxation of strain of
the brain cells, moro or less physical exorcieo and a change of air
ami scene.
"Fifty per cc«t., perhaps more,
of nervous troubles aro aggravated
and prolonged by remaining amid
familiar surroundings and among
tho iminedlato members of the
family, where their weaknesses,
often silly and foolinh, are coddled
and humored, until the subject be*
lievfu hiiiiwlf or her ml f dt*p»;n»U*ly
ill or dually develop* a rmi Ate-
ease.
"If nervous people who have not
reached thia stage only know what
a nuisance they are aud how readily
tlieir irritability would diwi-mww
if tliey would hold themselves up to
their irrespective vision, determine
to control themselves and not allow their whims, habit or snappy
temper to control them, they would

would find that self-control is a

women to nag, fret or show temper, and for a man to feel that he
in perpetnally going tn )me htefte*
sition, or suffer low in hia buai-
;nesa.
One mint persevere in the i*Jf<
check the habit of thought, too.
A. resolution always to turn to some
distinctly good thought when a
complaining or unkind one arises
in the mind is a great help—as it
te to turn every thought condemnatory of our neighbor into a prayer
for him.

There is a wondrous charm in a
gentle spirit. The gentle girl in a
home may not bo well educated,
may not ho musical, or an artist,
or clover in any way, but wherever
she moves sho leaves a benediction.
Her sweet patience is never dis
turbed by tho sharp words that fall
about her. The children love her
because sho never tires of them,
rflo helps them with their lessons,
listens to tlieir frets and worries
mends their broken toys, makes
dolls' dresses, (straightens* out tlio
tangles 'ind settles their little
quarrels and finds time to play
with them. When thero is sickness iu the home she is the angel
of comfort. Her face is always
bright with the outshining of love,
Her voice has mus<c in it as it falls
in cheerful tenderness on tho sufferer's ear, Her hands are wond-
rously gentle, aii their soothing
touch rests on the aching head, or
as they minister in countless ways
about the bed of pain.

THK   DEVIL.
Men don't believe in a Devil now, as their
fathers used to do,
They have forced the door of the various creeds
,   to let His Majesty through,
There isn't a print of his cloven foot' or a fiery
dart from his bow
To bo found in earth or air today-for the world
has voted so.
But who is mixing the fatal draught that palsies
heart and brain,
Aud loads the bier of each passing year with ten
hundred thousand slain ?
Who blights the bloom of the land today with
the fiery breath of hell,
If the Devil Isn't and never was, won't somebody
rise and tell? ,
Who dogs the steps of the toil ng saint, aud
digs the pit for his feet ?
Who sows the tares in the field of time wherever
God sows wheat ?
The Devil Is voted not to be, and of course the
,, thing is tiue;
But who just now is doing the work the Devil
alone should do?
We are to d he doos not go about' Kite a roaring
Hon now;
But whom shall we hold responsible for the everlasting row ."■"■''
To Ite heard in home, in cliureh and state, to the
earth's remotest bound.
If the Devil by a unanimous vote is nowhere to
be found?
Won't somebody step to the front forthwith, and
make their liow nnd show
How Ihe fmuds nud (he crimes of a single day
spring up V   We want to know.
Tlio Devil was fairly voted out, and of oourse
..,   the Devil's gone;
But simple people would, like to know who carries
his business ou.

L(-ok out, girls!
Tho city council of Gait is going
to pass an ordinance forbidding indiscriminate kissing.
Some bf the Slocan councils
might do likewise.
But what is indiscriminate kissing?
Can kissing be indiscriminate ?
I have asked The Ledge staff,
but there is nobod}' in the gang
that seems to know anything
about it.
If the girls of Gait aro so hot
after the touch of bliss that lifts you
heavenward when your lips come in
contact with the object of your
passion, that they have, to le
"siwashed" by a fossilized city
council, then it is time the Gait
boys formed a trust and induced
some parson to reduce the fee for
the ceremony that would place
them outside the kissing and kiss-
able row.
Td parallel a familiar quotation,
it might bo said that, "man's suspicion of man makes countless thousands spurned."

The happenings of a single week
1 illustrate the amazing folly of cor-
of tlio
The railway men of Holland
have struck against the state, that
iB, the Dutch people. The economies made on the railroads are for
the public; the strike involves no
question of oppression of any kind,
and the trainmen are fighting
against circumstances brought
about under a condition of society
which—as far as regards the railroads of Holland—is Socialism.
Next, the schoolboys exhibit the
force of example. At Hoboken 400
boys strike because their Easter vacation is shortened. A 13-year-old
orator is found addressing his comrades from the eminence of a flour
barrel. Five thousand other boys
threaten a sympathetic strike.
At Madison the boys went- out
on strike because they were not
granted a half-day session at once.
The 150 boys were joined later by
50 girls.
These are facts. They indicate
the spirit of the times. They may
be regarded as grotesque in their
absurdity, but unfortunately tho
bathos of it all goes unheeded.
THE   OIHLKSS   TKLUl'HOKK.
An invention which promises to
do away with much profanity -
expressed or implied—and any
quantity of vexation, is now being
tried ou a large scale in Chicago.
It is already satisfactorily at work
in a dozen cities with a population
of 25,000 and over, and its promoters are certain of its complete
success in the largest cities. It is
the automatic "secret service"
girless telephone. By means of
the automatic switchboard the telephone girls at the central stations'
aro absolutely done away with.
When a number is wanted yon
simply turn a small dial, like that
which operates the combination of
a vault to tho numerals which
makeup the required number, in
their consecutive order. Then you
press a button which rings tlie call
bell on the other telephone, and
the connection is complete. Tlie
whole operation is automatic and
almost instantaneous; no one can
break in or interrupt or overhear a
conversation; and a° person speaking cannot be cut off before he has
finished. Though more thau one
-telephone company in a city is a
nuisance, the adoption of an auto

The Chicago company has already
spent several millions of dollars in
the building of tunnels for its wires
and will have'^ten thousand telephones in operation within the
next two or three" months.—Harper's Weekly.
THE   UNDKKPAID   TEACHER.
A woman teacher writes: School
teachers would not deign to accept
charity, much less to ask or expect
it. They are the one class of public- servants who have concealed
their circumstances and borne their
poverty—and the public ingratitude—in.silence. Only in exceptional cases have the public any
knowledge of the state of their
finances. Who, then, has shirked
his duty ? If the teacher has done
more for the public good than the
soldier, the politician and the statesman combined, a statement that
has not been disputed, is there no
bill to pay? Is a proud, prosperous province like Ontario going to
repay the teacher for his life's work
with sentiment? It would seem
like it, unless Ontario's premier
recalls a promise made by him at
tho last sessiou of parliament, that
if ho were returned as premier ho
would bring in a bill to provide for
faithful civil servants and teachers.
