The Outlook Favorable for
a Mammoth Enterprise.
The Mining; Record of Victoria' rightly
accuses us of stealing a lengthy article,
from its columns on the ifon industry
of British Columhia. The article in
question was published in these colunniH
on July 17th, and was very strongly
written and just the stuff wo like to get
hold of. But vve always want to be {inland never intentionally omit the credit
on any article deemed worthy of repro
duction in the Lkdge
We give below an additional article
from the Mining" Record on the same
" Much attention has been given during the last few months to the possibility of establishing in British Columbia Iron smelters and kindred  industries.   While nothing definite has been
yet accomplished, nor is indeed to.be
expected from public discussion, a great
deal of good has been done, for much
information bearing upon tho question
has been brought out and the Depart-
ment of Mines has promised to do all in
its power to supplement information at
present available by official investigation. The great benefit of the academic
_treatvneiit of this industry is that thc

the attention of possible investors, for
there never was a time in the history
of the world when iron, in one form or
another, was in anything like as <?reat
demand as it is today    In the building
trade, for example, the coiihUmpUoii of
this metal far oxceedsanythingcontein-
plated not very long ago    Most of us
can remember when in the construction of even the largest buildings iron
played a very subordinate part, while
in 'structures of the ordinary class jt
was scarcely ever employed except hi
the form of nails    Nowadays thn con-
eontration of business  in  the  larger
cities has led .to the erection of build
ings of n class calling for greater quan
title* of stool, nnd even  in smaller
atructuren iron is being employed to n
much larger extent than ever before.
Within   comparatively   recent   years
thorohas been an active demand for
steel for bridge purposes, and it is only
a mutter of a comparatively short time
when the majority of the larger wooden
highway bridge* in North America will
be replaced with steel. The same Is true
of railways,   lu thousands of instances'
wood has' been employed In the con
Htructioii of railway bridge*, with u lull
knowledge that they would later  he
replaced by steel structures.   This has
been the ease with so many marls that
it is needless tn particularize any one of
tlwm.    At the time of construction motives of economy led tho companies to
employ Ihe material which wax cheap-
«st nt the moment, with the intention of
Huhiitilutliig peimniieitt structures when
truffle warranted.   A heavier valutne

JV-", The claini is made by those who have
-A; given the subject some investigation,
C\J that iron can  be manufactured in Brit-
,Q | isli Columbia and exported to the/Pacific
Coast States   at  a  profit.   We do not
vouch for the accuracy of this
' On the whole the advantage!? which
British Columbia offers as the seat of a
great iron industry are well worth very
careful investigation by persons con
tomplating au • investment of that
character." ■ • ■
them We repeat that what has been
done in this direction in Victoria recently has been of verv great value,
and those who have been instrumental
in .accomplishing it should persevere
along the lines of investigation*,that
may open up.        .
, "Some things have been established
beyond question, iliore are numerous
deposits of iron ore in BritishColumbia, some of them being apparently ot
great magnitude, although tew, if liny;
havo been fully proved. The mii^lie-
tite ores are of high quality as a rule,
but will bo expensive to handle without* a flux The hematite deposits are
not, so well, known, and arc not as a
rule as well situated in respect to "water
transportation as tho magnetite, manv
of these latter being upon salt wntcr
and accessible by the largest ships,
There are some deposits of bog iron,
but very little has been ascertained
about their extent There are apparently extensive, deposits of iron clay.
Speaking conservatively, it may .'bo said
that, so far as the ore is concerned, a
good prima facie case can be made nut,
_and onejnay-feel safe in recommending

When the train left ''Nakusp on Tuesday for Sandon there were twelve persons aboard, four of whom were pas
sengers. About, three miles from the
head of Slocan lake the engine plunged
through a small burning bridge, causing
the death of James Connacher, the engineer. The fireman, Chester D Clark,
called to Jim to jump, but while putting
on tho emergency the engine went down
and buried him "at his post.    He .was
a sister, Mrs. Horace Hume, formerly
of Nelson. It is supposed that a spark
from the engine set tire to the bridge in
the morning, as the section men working a mile aw;ay knew nothine about it.
A man with a speeder in front of the
train could have averted the calamity,
and, during the fire season, it is strange
that the C P. R. does not take such
Coniiacber'8 body was found amid
the debris late Tuesday night. He will

and traffic resumed, although it will be

Thursday afternoon the funeral of
Mrs. John A. Taylor was held from the
Presbyterian church. The edidce was
crowded by grief-stricken friends, and
the casket was buried beneath beautiful
floral pieces; showing the high esteem
in which the deceased was held by the
townspeople. Mr. Taylor and children
have the deep sympathy of the community in their great bereavement.
The death of Mrs. Taylor has taken
from the community one who was
known to alias a woman" of unalloyed
goodness. To everyone, and at' all
times and under all circumstances, she

FELLOW PIIiGEIWS: THK LEDGK Is located at New Denver. B. C, and can lie traced to man)'parts of the earth. It comes to the front
-every Thursday and has never been raided by the sherifl, snowslided by cheap silver, or subdued by the fear of man. It works for the trail
blazer «s well as the bay-windowed nnd champagne-flavored capitalist. It aims to be on the right side of everything and believes Mint hell
should be administered to the wicked in large doses. It has stood the test of time, and an ever-increasing paystreak is proof that It. is
better to tell the truth, even If tho heavens do occasionally hit our smokestack. A chute of job work is worked occasionally for the benefit
of humanity and the financier. Come in and see ni* but do not pat the bull doR on the cranium, or chase the black cow from our water

sure of a bunk in paradise, with thorniest* roses for a pillow by night, and nothing but gold to look at by day.

Nine years ago this journal commenced to clamor for a Canadian

Ottawa. This shows the power of
the press, as the matter would
probably have never been thought
of if this journal had not flashed it

for it, not even an ad respecting
its erection, but then some people
do not get their reward until they

The Work
of Greed

nearly all our troubles. Five years
ago the Toronto papers were
crowded with the ads of niiniug
stock brokers. The papers ditl all
they could to boom Kootenay and
lashed their readers into a frenzy
that was only satisfied by large
doses of gilt-colored stock certificates. It was greed that caused
the eastern papers to print these
lying ads and it was greed that
caused the suckers to gamble in a
game thoy ditl not understand. It
was a grand skin game dealt by
wily promoters, with the press "for
a booster ami the wise Rubes of

the fitful fever was over the people
cursed Kootenay, when they should
have cursed their own stupid cupidity, and the papers ceased to
notice our real mines because there
was nothing in it for their bank
accounts. Kootenay is still sulfei -

Andrew Jai'doson, of the. {St. James

and Gus lately. He hit a nail with his
foot so hard lhat he had lo sit down lor
several days while Gus dealt the.g-unie

nervous at first and would 'sometimes

fairly well, but when the crowd called
for I'ards.oti the secfuid course the Wise

go to the discard. However, he kept
the game running' and filled everyone's
hand. Occasionally he tried to make a
mutton four flush look all right with a
beef stew, or filled a craving for beefsteak with roast chicken, or slid the.
bacon and beans to a chubber who had
his mitt out for lemon pie; but, take it
all in all, from soda to hock theboarders

I so,   wouldn't  you ?
'  ) "Were you  ever in   Boston?"
/ asked the sporting man, as, after
draining his glass, he fished out a
sprig of mint, and chewed reflectively on the fragrant bit.
There was a dreamy, far-away
look in his eyes that made the barkeeper wonder if some new exercising yard for the penies had been
established near the Back Bay, and
the sporting man ; had beeu the
first outsider to find it.
"Naw," he said briefly, "but
I'vp heard of it. Thet's where the
beans come from, ain't it, and
they have brown bread for breakfast, Sundays?"
"Forget it," said the other
"Them things came over with
GJiristopher Columbus in the Mayflower, but there is a new Boston,
now. And say ! You want to put
on blinders and drop your toe-
weights when you strike the town,
if you ever go there.
"I don't often kick on any
proposition this side of a stroke of
lightning, but I had three days
and nights up there last week, an'
I got so busy trying to keep up
with the procession that I was almighty glad to get back here in
New York where I could sit down
by the side of.the road somewhere
in the tenderloin and pick dandelions and think for a while, and
listen to the rhythmic throbs in
the back of my head.
"Say, I've seen people in little
old New York that set themselves
up for capable drinkers, and there
are some few of 'em that get away
with the proposition, but the best
of 'em is only fit for entry in the
primary grade in Boston. It's the
climate, I reckon.
" They say it's just as well to
be dead as to be sober over there,
when the east wind blews. And
no sober man ever yet walked from
the po8toffice to the Boston common without losing his way.
"But the great feature of Boston is a thing they call draw poker.
They got me into a game there,
the night before I hunted out the
return ticket, an' say, it's the
.greatest game.ever.
"I thought I learned poker on
the Mississippi when 1 was walkiu*
taken a few more lessons out in
the Rockies when I was a little
older I took a whirl in Chicago.
Say, all that was just elementary, |
so to speak.
" 1 got the rudiments all right,!
an' picked up euough science to
lay down four tens after the. dealer
had drawn one card. But when I
reached New York and saw the
possibilities of the game, 1 realized
that it was up to me to do some
actual hard study before I could
tackle the heavyweig'ite.
"Somehow I got the notion
after a few months that J was the
real thing. A man that can hold
on to his own chips and pick up a
few blues besides in Now York
is apt to feel chesty if he really
kuows what they call poker out
"You can say what you like
about New York hot air. Some of
it's pretty gassy, J'II admit; but
when it comes to blowing about the
local braudB of poker, there ain't
no western man that has any peep
coming. He may win money when
he playa out west, but if he wants
a real strenuous game, ho can't do
better than to tackle Home o' tlm
grown-up players in this town.
"That is, 1 thought so, till 1
went to Boston.    An , say, that's
far euough east for me.    It's mej
for the peaks an' the prairies when <
I leave town again. !
" I don't know what they might'
do to me il I got
or Nova  Scotia,
like the further
than was known elsewhere. You
wouldn't think a cab driver would
say that, now, would you ? Well,
he would, after he learned the way
'round Boston. j
" He wasn't surprised  that.  I
was broke.    All he  wondered at!
was the return ticket.
" There was seven of us playing
and say, there was two othar men
wanted to butt in. I kicked on
that, and asked them what they'd
do for the draw, ahd they said they
had a deck with elevens and twelves in ^ it. They had, too, for I
saw it, and they said they played
poker with it; but I drew the
" I don't like so much water in
my whiskey, anyhow, and I told
'era they might play with it if they
liked, or even use a pinochle deck
for all I cared, but all I'd do would
be to lbok on. I had prejudices, I
I said,-and one of 'ein Was delaying the game long enough to count
the spots'.
"Well, I could see that most of
the interest in the game would be
gone if I dropped out* All they
wanted was a chance at me, and if
I'd understood Boston better I'd
hit the ground with a. big bump
right then, but, as I was saying,
felt chesty about poker, aud I had
I it in my mind that there was going
to be a surprise party. I don't
know but what I was right about
that, too, but nothing seems to surprise a Boston man.
"There wasn't
anything very
remarkable about the play for the
first twenty minutes. There was
a geezer in blue spectacles that sat
opposite me—they said he was a
theological student, and from what
I saw I should say he ought to
be—that bad taken q'iite'a few lessons in dealing and usually
scooped the pot when he had the
placing of the pasteboards, but that
didn't trouble me none.
" I had him down fine on the
second round, and I took it out of
him when somebody else dealt. It
was e&sy to stay out when he dealt.
I don't know whether the others
were on or not, but I guess not,
for he was a good winner when I
dropped out.
that had an educated finger nail
that was a decided help to me. You
see he used the old system, and 1
could use the backs of the aces as
he  could   after   he   nicked   'em.
| cards apiece, I concluded I had 'em
It wouldn't
strain your nerves none to bet 15
cents on a cinch like that, would it ?
Well, you try it on in Boston some
"The first man bet a white chip.
That was good poker and I recognized it. The second man he put
up a white chip, too, and I says to
myself he was all right. He was
lookin' for a raise later on if he had
" Then it came to me. I'd drawn
one card an' I boosted it five.
'• Then the ace came back at me
with ten more and the others dropped. It was like finding a stiff
stiff with a fat pocket. I sized
him for threes and it was 'leven to
one that my kings was good.
^Course he might have aces, but
I thought not. So we joggled eaeh
other onee or twice and he called,
showing down nine high, and when
I showed three kings he reached
for the pot.
"It sort o'stunned  ine, but  I
had enough presence o' mind
•'What's the matter with my
kings ? ' I asked.
"Three kings is a good hand,"
he says, ' 'but I' ve got a nine, seven
five, four, deuce."
"I see you have," says I, "but
what of it?"
" That's a skeeter," he says.
'• An' what'sa skeeter?" I asked
' • A skeeter is a nine, five,deuce.,
with any other two cards between
a nine and a deuce, so that there
isn't any pair in the hand. It beats
"Well," I says, "I don't see
no tassels hung up round the room
for the patients to play with. Why
don't yon   have   'em?"   I   says.
" You can't run a real first-class
funny house without you have the
fixtures." ■
" But  they all said a skeeter
beut three of a kind in Boston, an
I had to give up.    Before I played
any more, though. I asked them if
they had any more improvements.

J. B.Moore, in the Winnipeg' Tribune, tells about how Begbie sent up
iin editor for contempt in New Westminster 85 years ago, as follows:
In tlmt time there were many reports
around concerning thejudgo.iind amono'
them one that he was speculdtinjj iu
miniiiK rlaiins. Robson, editor of thu
New Westminster Herald fjot hold of it,
and it came out In lar#e letters that tho

I happened to he in court that time iu
WestminBter, hearhiK Home very peculiar casob that were brought up. To
my surprise, Robson was brought into
court on a bench'warriint. I hav surprised, because he was well thought of
liy everybody socially. He was very
courteous anil obliging. As soon as lie
entered tlio dock, his lordship hioiiglit
out the paper and said:
"This is your pa pur?'
" Yes,*' replied Hobson.
" Well, this ie UAm in every respect
What have you to say ahoiit H V
" Vour lordship, my reporter not it
nu the street. It wan in everybody's
mouth, but 'f it is false I will withdraw
the statement, and apologize, not only
now, hut through tuy paper, If it Is

He almost shouted, " Do you know
that is contempt of court. I commit
you to jail fur one month."
Then a subdued "nh" went through
