A Dakota editor called a local preacher a lobster, and the jury brought in a
verdict of guilty; damages $870. We
see no reason why lobst* r should be a
term of reproach.' It is an inoffensive
creature, which fights only on the defensive. It is boiled alive in order that
human epicures may enjoy a delicacy
Between man and the lobster, therefore,
the account shows an enormous balance
to the credit of the lobster.

that it pays to keep on prospecting a

they had been heard using incantations

object in doing so was to invoke an epidemic.

On May 17, Wm. McAdams published
in his paper The Paystreak, printed in
Sandon, British Columbia, Canada, an
article in which he accused the Supreme Court judges of British Columbia
of being lazy, debauched, corrupt and
neglectful of business. He was summoned to appear before the Full Court
at Victoria, 500 miles away Owing to
lack ot money ho did not' answer the
summons but repeated tho editorial in
his journal. He was then arrested and
brought before the men he had so
severely criticised He admitted thnt
he should not have used the word cor-
nipt and apologized to the Court, but
when he ventured to explain the other
charges he was shut off and sentenced to Nine Months in prison, with
a further Twelve Months if he could not
put up sureties in the amount of
-54,000 for future good conduct No
jury nor witness were called in the case.
The press and public in Canada are almost unanimous in condemning the severity of the sentence. McAdams is a
young and clever writer, of excellent
*iiabitsand~has~always-boTne a good"
reputation. Newspapers in various
parts of the world commenting upon
the case are requesed to send marked
copies to The Lbdoe, New Denver, B.

J. Fred"Ritchie. P. L. S., and Ross
Thompson have returned io the city
from an exceedingly interesting trip
through a section of East Kootenay
As has been stated in the Miner, their
quest waa oil and coal. In this they
were exceedingly successful, both minerals being discovered and located.
Ten years ago Mr. Ritchie learned of
the existence of coal in the district from
which which he has just returned, which
may be said to be in the same zone as
the Crow's Nest Coal company's measures are situated At that period there
was no transportation for hundreds of
miles in any direction and Mr Ritchie
did not turn to account the information
in his possession. For some time, how
ever, he has contemplated going into
the country, and finally put this into
effect a month or six weeks since
Leaving the Crow's Nest Road at Elko,
Messrs. Ritchie and Thompson took a
pack train into the particular section
for which they were headed and set out
in quest of the reported discoveries.
The trip was long and arduous. The
country had every earmark of virginity, not a blaze of an axe or other indication being found to evidence that the
The country wiib rough and the party
had many trying experiences, one of
them occurring when Ritchie and
Thompson became seperated from the
balance of the pack train and were 21
hours without food, p^rt of the time in
a pouring rain.
Ultimately their quest was crowned
with success. The coal lands were
found and the mineral found to exist.
The coal is pronounced by Mr. Ritichie
to be as good quality as any In British
Columbia—in fact, to be similar to the
Fernie product of the best grade, The
land adjoins the. reserves of the Canadian Pacific railroad.
Oil was also found in such quantities
aud under such conditions an gave
promise of large -deposits when the
ground was properly opened up by
deep borings. The oil is light in color
and weight, resembling rather a flue

this particular from tho oil found a few

The Statutes just received contains
two acts which are regarded bv the
minister here as obnoxious to Japan.
One is the measure introduced by
Hon Colonel Prior, Minister of Mines,
which is practically a copy of the Natal
Act. It is true that Mr. "Chamberlain,
the Colonial Secretary, some years ago
recommended the adoption by Canada
of this particular law, but events have
clian.ed so much in the Far East that
the Government is opposed now to its
introduction in the Dominion and it
and other restrictive laws will both- be
Rov. John Langtry in a letter to the
ss, under the heading "The Bank of
fontrcal Versus Morality," refers to
the action of the Bank of' Montreal in
raising the salary limit on which clerks
may marry from $1,000 to $1,500, as a
scandalous and immoral act of tvrannv.
What does it mean? Electing that four-
fiffhs of the  bank clerks  can never
marry at all.   No one below an accountant ever gets $1,500. a year.   And there
is only one accountant to at least five
other employes    And what does that
mean? Hundreds of young men doomed
tive or choice of their own, but by the
pitiless, grasping greed of their superiors.   Married men on a thousand dol-
lar-s a year might ask for an increase of
pay, or might be tempted to steal.   But
wliv don't tho managers and assistants
see to it that the capable; skilled, faithful men who are serving them get sufficient salnries to enable them  to live
without trampling under foot the laws
of nature and of life?   And a^ain, who
are most likely to steal the bank funds,
married men, who are struggling on to
keep themselves and their families on a
scanty Income, or men who fall into the
dissolute wavs to which life-long, constrained celihacv is almost sure to lead?
The money-grabbers who are seeking
in this way to increase their own gains
are pursuing a fool's policy.    And the
honest investors jn hank securities who
aro contemplating this immoral tyranny
with composure are surely greatly imperilling the security of their own funds.
The public has not noticed or not taken
in the significance of this tyranny or in
the interest of public morality it would
demand legislative curtailment of the
powers of bank managers to inflict such
wrong upon  their helpless employes,

John C. Brown, of Now Westminster,
contributes to the Canadian Magazine
(or June, an Interesting article bearing
on ths financial relation between British
Columbia and the Dominion government.
"Roughly summarized,'' says Mr,
Brown, "the case of British Columbia
is, that its proper proportionate contribution to the revenue of tho Dominion would havo been, for tho period
since the Province entered the Confederation U87l), two per cent, of the total
of that revenue, whereas Its actual contribution has boon 6 per cent., and that
Dominion expenditures on account of

The following advise from the Daily

tho American hotme* thnt make the

THURSDAY, JULY  31, 1902.
rt Live   i upiu law in this
country if au editor makes statements, true or otherwise, against
the judiciary he is brought before
tfye men accused and tried without
a jury. A law of this kind seems
to us like a remnant from the barbarous pas4; that has clung to the
wheels of progress, without being
noticed or brushed off by the march
of time. Such a law is entirely at
variance with the spirit of the age
and should be thrown back to the
era in which it was born.
It is too severe a test upon human natnre to expect even a judge
to smother all selfish feelings when
an enemy stands before him for
sentence. There is too much Clay
in nearly all people when their
vanity, egotism,* honor or dignity
is attacked, to overlook punishing
the offender when the instrument
of power is within their reach. To
rise above the flesh in the treat-
ment~df~aii7enemy, by turning the
other cheek, is the surest way to
win a victory over all except those
made entirely out oi mud. As
even judges do not yet possess the
divine nature to any excessive extent no cinch should be permitted
No case of contempt  of court
should bo tried" without a jury except when the contempt consists of
the immediate interruption of court
proceedings,    ff  an   editor libels
the Premier, -Governor, or even the
King, lie is not tried by the party
Jibek'd.    Then   when   he libels a
a judge or judges,  why should he
pr thoy try him?   Are they greater
than even tho King?    The people
should know, as after all if it were
not for the people we would have
no judges or kings.
The press is the greatest power
of modern times, and when united
can accomplish almost anything
within the gracp of man. It ia
largely under the influence of
money in America and the majority of papers are run in the interest
of politician/!, capitalist*, railroads,
trusts, churches,, etc. The truly
Independent journal te cradled in a
storm and it** editor is often an object of hatred, and sometimes
studies the world from behind the
bars. In his effort* to right or Improve condition* ho frequently

and incur* the enmity of those who
suffer from his word painting. No
unbiased opinion can come from
any editor who te chained to the
oolicv of the counting-room. His
bread and butter depend* upon hi*
masters, and his pen is rough-
locked to Hiiit their idem-. The
world at large will receive more
benefit from even the wild |mii of
one fearless writer than it will from
A thousand pen* thnt are pushed

fair and unjust it will not injure
the judges, but will fly back and
crush the hand that fired it. Hence
putting editors in jail for making
either true or false ''statements
against judges seems like sprinkling a negro with holy water in
order to make him white.
Our courts must be protected
and respected, and so must our
newspapers. Both will be when
they leave no targets in sight for
the critical public. The majority
of editors are the equals of the
judges in any country. In their
own way they try many cases and
pass many sentences. They have
great power for evil or for good
and should be respected when good
and damned when bad. Likewise
the judges. If a judge can jail an
editor for calling him corrupt, why
should an editor not have the
same privilege when the judge
offends ? As the law now stands
what is sauce for the goose is bread
and water for the gander.
Any arbitrary or oppressive action of the judiciary should expose
it to hatred and obloquy so that it
will be swiftly restored to its function of properly guarding the rights
and interests of the people. Roger
Pryor says that "it is one thing to
yield obedience to the mandates of
a court; it is another and a most
*mischievous~tuing^—uy~process- Or
contempt, to shield the court from
the salutary criticism of the public
press.       *

Michigan gets everything from

Clergue, and, according to the

When the benefits Ontario has

something less than the ruin of an

'•Bystander" < Prof, (ioldwin
Smith j has lieen fining up the present |H>litiro! situation in Ontario,
and iu the Toronto Weekly Sun
this week says:
♦•The   Ontario  Government   te
vote, followed, if necessary, by a
fresh appeal to the country. Such,
unqestionably, would be the course
taken in England.    A Government
cannot be carried on with' a majority of one..  It would be liable at
any mom'ent to be put in a minority
by a spell of sickness or the missing of a train or worse still, it would
almost be at the nieYcy of a single
buccaneer.    It was a crisis of this
kind   that   forced    confederation j
which was the offspring,  not  of
statemanship   but   of    deadlock.
What' is the   remedy?   The only
permanent   remedy   is the   abandonment of the  party   system   of
government, which exposes us  to
the risk of such dilemmas, as well
as tojtll the bitterness,   roguery,;
and corruption, with their nialign
influence on national characteir; , to
the influence, now rapidly growing;
bf sinister interests on Government:
and to the exclusion   of   half   the
community from administration of
the state.    The system was the accidental offspring of the contest between the Jacobite and the   Hanoverian parties in England.    It has
long   left     behind   any    rational
ground for its existence, and is ut-
terably inapplicable to a  community like ours, iu which not only is
there no fundamental question at
issue like that between the   Hano-'
verians   and   the    Jacobites,   but
there is no important question  of
any kind to divide one-half of the
community from   the   other.    Do
away with the Lieutenant-Government and with the obsolete farce of
his    nominating   Ministers.    Let
the elections to the Legislature   be
held at stated times.    Let the  legislature elect the heads of the several   administrative   departments,
as well as its own   president,  for
the term of its own existence. That
is the natural and lational mode of
operating elective government, and
to it, perhaps, after some   further
experience of the  working of   the
present system, the country will be
forced     to   come.    Party   feeling
would live and give more trouble
frt first, but in time it would abate.
* We should not sail at once into a
political millenium, but wc should
be working elective government on
the lines of common sense,  and in
the manner suited to'"the twentieth
uot to the nineteenth  century.    A
condition is now proposed.    So far
we are on the right road."

serious enough when   the proper

takes the day from sun-up to sundown just as he finds it, and makes
out of it a thing worth the living

Even the clergyman descanted on
the awful impiety of seeking to

were urged to hoot her as an unnatural mother who had risked the
lives of her own children. However the Princess of Wales, afterwards Queen Caroline, stood her
friend, and truth and reason finally
prevailed. It was about the year
1752 that Lady Montagu was honored by a monument erected to
commemorate England's gratitude
to her for introducing inoculation.
"-. Dr. Edward Jenner substituted
cowpox inoculation in 1799. He
lived to be rewarded by parliament
by a grant of £10,000 and later by
a second grant of -t'20,000, and in
1858 a statue was erected to him in
Loudon. Only a bare credit was
vouchsafed to Lady Mary Wortley
Montagu who bore all the persecution without any of the pecuniary
reward she was entitled to and by
no means a fair share of the glory.
It is said of a former Marquis of
Town-send' that when young and
engaged in battle he saw a drummer killed by a cannon ball, which
scattered his brains iu every direction. His eyes were at once fixed
ou the ghastly object, which seemed
to engross his thoughts. A superior
officer, observing him, supposed he
was intimidated at tbe sight, and
addressed him in a manner to
cheer his spirits. "Oh," said the
young marquis, with''calmness but
severity, "I am not frightened. I

when these  same corners simply
won't go up, and all the  kings'
horses couldn't budge them,  but
such occasions are rare.    To be as
a rule cheerful is to be master of
most situations and of most men.
It is a trifle strange,  is it not,
that we make it a duty to do and
to be almost everything else in life,
except to be happy?   And yet the
benefactions that  a  happy man,
consciously or unconsciously casts
about him, yield sunshine all along
the line.    Stevenson   has a little
tale that points this moral well.
"The other day, a ragged, barefoot
boy ran down the  street aft*er a
marble, with so jolly an air thnt he
set everyone he passed into a good
humor.    One of the persons, who,
doubtless, had just lieen delivered
from  more   than   usually  black
thoughts, stopped the little fellow
and gave him money with the remark.   *You see what sometimes
comes of looking pleased.'    If he
,had looked pleased liefore, he now
looked hoth p leaned and mystified.
For my part, I justify this encour-
ment of smiling rather than tearful
children.   I do not wish to pay for
tears Anywhere but upon the stage;
but 1 am pit-pared to deal largely
in the opposite  commodity.    A
happy man or woman is a better
thing to ilnd than a  live pound

How to marry i^ the first question to what justifies divorce, aud
to know how to do the first wisely
would in most cases obviate the
necessity of the other.
The most important question  is
not how to patch up evils,  but to
dig dowu to the foundation  causes
of the discord and disorder on the
surface. I would rather be instrumental in placing one new  round
on the ladder of progress by which
all humanity might  rise  a  little j
higher than with moral anodynes'
to soothe the sufferings of one generation in their false relations.
We are doing two things   today
to   improve   married life.    In opening    all    colleges     and   high
schools  to girls,   we are   giving
men and women  better opportunities of studying each other's tastes,
sentiments, capacities,  characters,
in the normal condition.    Iu overy
day life in the recitation room and
on the playground, the real character reveals itself, and more congenial marriages will be the result  of
these early and free acquaintenc.fr->
ships, far different from those under the artificial stimulus of fashionable   society.    Thus,   too,   in
rousing a   girl's   ambition   to go
through a collegiate course,   marriage will be postponed, to later
years, when character and physical
powers shall have   been perfected
and matured.    This of itself will
end much of the weakness and disability   that so   greatly mars the
happiness of married life today.
Morever, girls are begining to
have the idea of pecuniary independence of the dignity oV self-support; hence with their minds occupied iu study tlieir hands in profitable work, marriage will cease to
be the whole of their ambition; it
will then be an incident in their
lives, not the whole of it.
A place in the world of word will
enable wdinen to marry from the
highest motives, not from their
necessities It will teach them the
value of money—to earn what they
spend will be the best possible
check to extravagance, and end
much of the domestic contention
great Father from a kind of Pandora box but are the result of
causes that we have the power to
remove. By a knowledge and observance of the law of the road to
health and happiness opens before
us a joy and peace that passeth all
understanding shall be ours, and
paradise regained on earth.
.When marriage results from a
true union of intellect and spirit-
when mothers and fathers give to
their holy offices even thfe preparation of soul and body that the art-
tist gives toJiis conception of his
poem, statue or painting, then will
marriage and paternity acquire a
new* sacredriess aud dignity, and a
nobler type of manhood and womanhood will glorify the race.—
Elizabeth Cady Stanton.

round the formation of marriage
ties, it hi honor bound to open
wide the door of escape.
From a woman's standpoint, I
see that marriage, as an individual
tie. is slavery for woman, because
law. religion and public sentiment
all combine under this idea to hold
her true to this relation, whatever
it may be, and there is no other human slavery that knows auchj
depths of degradation as a wife
chained to a man that she neither
loves nor respect, no other slavery
so disastrous in its consequences on
the race, or to individual respect,
growth and development.
The question today with the
Protestant world is not whether
marriage is an indissoluble tie. but
as a civil contract, for how many
and what reasons it may be disolv-
All this talk about the indissoluble tie und the sacredness of mar*
riage, irrespective of the character
and habit of the husband, in for its
effect on woman. She never could
have Ixwn held the pliant tool she
is today but for the subjugation of
her religions nature to the idea
that in whatever condition she
found herself an a man's subject,
that condition was ordained of
heaven, whether burning on the
funeral pyre of her husliand in India or suffering the slower torture
of bearing children every vear in
America, to drunkards, diseased,
licentiorifl men at the expense of
her own life and health, and thc
mind and body of her progeny.
Women would not live as they
do in this enlightened age in viola-
| tion of every law of their being,
givlim the very heyday of their ox-
istence to the excrciN'of one animal function, if subordination to
man hud not been made through
age« the cardinal point of their religious life. It require* hut little
thought to we that the indlsolnhle
tie wa» one of the necessary stops
in this hithjligation.

Some British soldiers were recently attacked with fever in the
Trausyaal, and wore removed to a
hospital. After a few days they
began to recover, and, finding time
hanging heavy ou their hauds,they
resolved to gamble, and formed
what they called the "temperature
New patients were arriving daily,
and the physicians took the temperature of all the invalids every
morning. When this was done the
temperature was written on apiece
of cardboard, which was fastened
at the head of each bed. It was
agreed that each soldier should put
a shilling into the pool every day,
and that the entire amount should
go to the patient who had the
highest temperature on that day.
It frequently happened that the
patient who received all the money
in the pool died a few hours afterward, the elevation of his temperature indicating that his malady
had become more serious, but this
did not prevent the survivors from
continuing to play their uncanny
game until the very day when they
left the hospital.

boys is the man who knows" how to

they don't behave themselves properly. The Detroit Free Press tells

"Willie,'' said his mother,
"please pass Br. Mackenzie a potato."
Willie seized a potato between
thumb and finger, and before his
mother could utter her remon-
stance. he had tossed it across
the table squarely into the clergyman's hand, which instinctively
closed around it.
"Judgement!" cried Willie.
"One strike!" cried the minister,
almost involuntarily. He sympathized with boys, and remembered the days when he played ou a
college nine.
"Willie, leave the table!" cried
the mother.
"My dear Mrs. Hastings," said
the minister, with a twinkle, "do
int judge him so harshly. He
won't do such a thing again. And
besides, see how beautifully, he
put the sphere over the plate."
From that time on there was no
more regular attendant at Sunday
