the case that a strong union dictates
terms which practically deprive capital
of its profit, nor is it an unusual thing
for capital to compel labor to accept a
wage that is altogether inadequate for
tho services rendered. Every thoughtful trade unionist will admit that under
the present conditions it is the party
that is strongest that wttis, regardless
of the justice of the cause. The idea in
the ntinds of those who believe in compulsory arbitration is that might shall
not be'right, but that whatever side is
in the right shall have its claims recognized by the court and enforced by the
nation." In our judgment those who
imagine compulsory arbitration would
be an evil to the. workingmen are entirely mistaken As we see it, it would
he the greatest benefit that could come
to them, for it would eliminate the distress consequent upon the strike, and
maintain between masters and men
harmonious relations where too often
under present conditions there is bitterness and hatred."

Taxation or mining interests is always a complex problem. In general,
it is well nigh impossible for an assessor
to put a just value on several hundred
mining: claims. It is much easier to
assess town lots, orchards, farms, buildings or live stock, but difficult to
equitably value mining property developed or undeveloped A property
may not appear to be worth 81,000 today, and in 90 days may be actually
worth $1,000,000; or it may be apparently, worth 8100,000 now' and not be
worth $100 in six mouths. A mining
property is a constant source of expense and nothing but expense until it
becoines a profit to its owner, and to
the community where it is, It furnishes
employment and adds to general and
permanent wealth. It is a creator of
prosperity, hence the hand-of the tax-
gatherer should ever be laid lightly
upon it. No mining property should
be taxed until the productive stage is
reached, and then only on the net output. The miner is inevitably taxed in
a variety of ways, and deserves a certain degree of "fostering care from the
state and federal government. To tax
the mines to death means to destroy or
greatly retard thnt region's nihidral development and the frightening away of
capital, Of course a fair share of taxation should be placed on all inning
property; but when carried further, it
injures the mining industry and every
other class of business dependent upon
the .miners —Mining and Scientific Press
on many of ihe claims, Of course, the
facilities foi getting out the gold are
now the very best, and under these'circumstances many of the creeks which
were abandoned in the early days as
being worked out will yield remunerative returns for a longtime to come.
During the last two years a great deal
of very valuable machinery has been
sent to Cariboo, and it is only reasonable to expect some return for this expenditure during this or at latest next
season. From information which has
been received it is evident that there
has been in Cariboo, as there bas been
ilsewhere in British Columbia, very
bad management of some of the properties, and where a good profit should be
expected in dividends there bas already
been a loss. This results from placing
in control of properties men who have
no knowledge whatsoever of mining,
and very little, if any, of business generally. They are sent out from the old
country and given responsible positions owing to the influence of- their
friends, who, in nine casets out of ten
are only anxious to get rid of them,
and they not only mismanage the properties which thev are placed in charge
of, to the loss of the British stockholder
but to the serious disadvantage of thfs
country. So many good properties,
however, in Cariboo are now in charge
of experienced mining men and capable
engineers that the district is bound to
see another period of prosperity It is
to be hoped that the era on which it is
now starting will be one of long'continuance.' There is no reason" why
Cariboo itself should not rival, if it does
not eclipse the Klondike, and give-the
cities of British Columbia a permanent
and enlarging market for their surplus
sootls." "

Four years ago Gus Lam ford was a
somewhat familiar character about
Sandon. He suddenly passed out of
existence and has never been heard of
since. The Ferguson Eagle tells of the
finding of a body of a man in a tent
in the woods close to the cabins on
Eight Mile creek who had evidently
been dead some years. A jury was impaneled and proceeded to the scene,
and in the presence of the jury the coroner and police officer made au examination of the remains of the man and
of the surroundings. It was evident
that he had been prospecting in the
summer or fall- of 1899 and had been
camped several days in this place He
appears to have gone to bed, cut a pipeful of tobacco, had a smoke and then
went to sleep. His bed was shingled
with evergreen boughs on',which blankets were laid, and another blanket
and a coat covered the body. The
body had been resting easily on the left
side and there was nothing to indicate
violence or pain. In a screw-top baking
powder tin were found a free miner's
license and a poll tax receipt, issued to
.'•Gust ll.Lamfors^^^I^cordj3r Mclnms
a mineral glass and a new shaving kit.
An axe was found under the pillow, together with the man's boots, and his
pocket knife was found uear the right
hand. No coins were discoveted. The
tent had become pressed down to the
ground by the weight of the snow and
this, together with the man's wearing
apparel and blankets were very rotten,
but undisturbed.
The reason why no wells are sunk is
because the Canadian Pacific railroad
hae corraled all tho oil lands, and will
neither sink wells itself nor suffer anybody else to do so.
Americans perhaps might go up there
and teach the Columbians how to get
in, and get there with the oil, and appeal the case against the Canadian Pacific railroad, so as to force the oil field
to be opened to boring. The. fact that
this great railroad octopus is so in control of the Canadian government that it
is allowed to tie up one of the greatest
resources the country is blessed with is
a disgrace to tlie'Canadian people.
They need to become Americanized.
They should haudle the C. P. H. as the
people , ol Californiau handled the
Southern Pacific, and should force the
great transportation tyrant either to
open the oil fields themselves or release
their grasp upon them that others
oould enter upon them—San Francisco

Col. Prior, Minister of Mines, and act-
ing Premier in tho absence of Premier
Dunsmuir, visited New Denver Tuesday to meet the citizsns and hear their
complaints. It is Col. Prior's first official trip through the Kootenays, and he
is getting new ideas from the closer
toueh with the people. In the low
grade camps, Col, Prior says, he met
with much opposition to the 2 per cent,
tax, but where the ;ire is high grade ho
found very little complaint on that
score. The demand is made by the
low-grade operators that the tax should
lie removed, in order to foster the mining inniiBtry in its infancy; but then
again the 'demand is also' mntlo for
more trails, more roads, bridges, etc.,
and in ortlt-r to build those the government must have money, and this could
only be raised by taxation. Col. Prior
was greatly struck with the apparent
folly of having so many iittle towns on
Slocan Lake, and contrasted the present
situation with what would undoubtedly
be the case with one good sized citv oil
the lake and all the people working
toward its upbuilding, This deduction
bv the honorable geiitli'itian is the com-
uion one to practical men, but it was
not iu vogue with the old regime at
Victoria when for political reasons the
Slocan division was split in twi and a

The party started to return soon after

THE LEDttE, NEW DENVER, B. <J„ AUGUST 21   1902.
If the experiences of Alfred Y.
Allen, an old Toronto boy, are any
criterion, he has discovered a cure
for consumption that leaves Koch
and other lymph compounders in
the "also started' '■ list. His remedy
is certainly an heroic one, and,
efficacious as he found it, is scarcely
likely to become popular.
This is his story as told to the
Mail and Empire: °
On being told by a doctor in San
Francisco that his lungs were almost used up and he had better go
home to die, Mr. Allen retired to
his room to consider what he would
do. Many would have done nothing, or committed suicide; while
idly pondering over how to spend
his few remaining days, however,
a sudden inspiration came to Mr.
Allen. He decided to take a walk
back to his old Canadian home in
He at once decided to try the experiment, and the next day, Aug.
8th, 1901, he started out, with his
best suit on, one lung out of business, $1.60 in his pockets, and a
gross tonnage over all of eighty-
one pounds. He was very weak
at first, and found it hard work to
cover a mile and a half a day. For
two months he walked along, keeping his money—as long as he
looked respectable no one woul.?
take it, but when he became more
weather-worn and needy-looking it
soon went. So weak was he that
on one occasion he got permission
to cut wood for a meal, but was
unable to handle the axe.
Slowly and painfully he tramped
on, following the ties north through
California and Oregon. Then he
left the tracks to take a shot fc cut,
and lost himself two days and a
night in the dense forests, but in
spite of it all he started to gain
strength, and was soon able to
average .35 miles a day, one day
actually walking 51 miles. In Oregon he earned $17 cooking for
some hungry sheep-herders, strangers to dyspepsia, and started off
again, rich once more, until he
reached Idaho. There he had a
terrible experience tramping a 3ross
173 miles of blazing hot desert,
without food or water, until he
reached an oasis, where some adventurous spirit had by irrigation
reclaimed enough land to produce
a scanty living.
parched and swollen, his iips
cracked, and he was completely exhausted by his privations, so much
bo that it took -several days of water
and food to put him in shape to
continue his walk. With the aid
of a big water bottle he managed
to cross the rest of the arid, sun-
parched plain, and crossed into
Utah, through which state he
Btrolled, hospitably received everywhere by the lonely railroad 86c-
tionmen, to whom the sight of a
face from the outside world was a
real Godsend. In fact, at one
place, where he had to face a fearful cold snap, with show waist
deep, a family took bim in and
kept bim three weeks. When
finally he did start off tho lady bf
the bouse gave bim a kiss and a $5
bill to cheer bi$ lonely pilgrimage,
Tbe money haa gone but the memory of that kiss is still fresh.
Through storm and snow, wind
and rain, he plodded along, traversing Ohio into Illinois, through
Illinois into Michigan, and at Detroit he crossed to Windsor, once
more in Canada. From Windsor
he walked across to Buffalo, from
Buffalo to Lewiston, where he
crossed the old Suspension bridge
and once again landed on Canadian
Hoi). There he took the Grand
Trunk ties and landed in Toronto
laat WcdnesdaVi weather-worn and
weary, but a well man, weighing l.'IO
pounda of hard, healthy manhood,
and without a traoe of the old foe,
This is certainly a marvellous
record for even a man condemned
by a doctor to upeedy death.
During lito long tramp, Mr. Allen walked through .15 paira ofj
boot*, and lined up more cWtbw
than he could keep track of. He
was much more impressed with the
unfailing kindneaa he met with
everywhere, having alwaya plenty
of food aud clothea. On only one
occasion did he lack a house to

In any system of protection
some industries must suffer for the
benefit of others. If it were possible to fairly apportion the favors
and burdens the loss in every case
would be materially greater than
the gain, and the system would
have no friends. But as the favors
go to the men besi qualified to direct parliamentary action from behind the scenes, any protection
scheme must in time become
strongly entrenched. In the fight
against protection in Canada the
miner should come to the aid of
the farmer if on no higher ground
than personal interest. The iron
miner is well cared for,- as we are
obliged to import iron ore for Canadian smelters, but the miners
who must seek for a foreign market for their output are in the eame
position as the farmers. They
have a surplus to export, and it
determines the price of the entire
product. The miners of gold, copper, silver and lead 5n British .Columbia, like miners of nickel and
the precious metals in Ontario and
the east, are burdened at every
turn by the protective tariff, but
they derive no compensating gain
from such duties as may be levied
on foreign metals.
The duty on mining machinery
is about twenty-five per cent.
There is a proviso in the tariff law
that mining machinery of a kind
not manufactured in Canada shall
be admitted0free. A comparatively
small amount of machinery receives free entry by virtue of that
clause, but such imports are not
sufficient to materially relieve the
mining industry from the burdeng
of protection. There are but few
lines of mining machinery not
manufactured in Canada, so the
great bulk of the importations
must pay the duty. The proportion of free to taxed mining machinery * is very small. In addition to the tax on imported machinery the miner is required to
pay the tax when buying the Canadian product, for the current price
is that-of American or British machinery  with   the   duty   added.
There is also a protective tax on
is extensively used, is favored like
other petroleum products. There
is nothing the miner uses, handles
or wears that is not enhanced in
price by* the protective duties. But
the tariff cannot afford compensation, and there are in consequence
mai)y idle mines, which, under
fair conditions, might be profitably
operated.—Toronto Sun.
In concluding an article on the
above subject, the Chicago Public
That the tramp is a parasite is
conceded. He docs not work. He
lives by .beggary. But he lives
very poorly. When he begs even
successfully his prize is seldom
better than a bone. It doesn't cost
muoh to keep bim. .
Not so with the millionaire para-
Bite. He doesn't work either. But
he lives well. And although he
doesn't live by beggary, ho lives by
something worse—by appropriation. It coate a great deal more to
keep the appropriating millionaire
"hobo" than to keep the begging
tramp "hobo."
Why concern ourselves go much,
then, with the problem of the latter while neglecting so persistently
the problem of the former ? Let ub
concern ourselves more with the
problem of the millionaire "hobo"
who geta by appropriation bo much
that he doesn't earn and therefore
must be extorting it from those of
us who do earn, and we shall not
need to concern ourselves with the
outcast begging *'hobo" at all.
Both are product* of the same
conditions. The institution whereby
the one claaa Is enabled to appropriate, te the very institution which
haa driven the other class to beggary. Solve fie idle millionaire
problem and tho idle tramp problem will aolve itaelf.
father, sick unto death, waits the
sad home-coming of the wife of his
bosom, bearing with her the senseless clay of her wayward boy. For
weeks the poor mother had interceded for the life of her son still
dear to her. Failing in this she
still pleaded that his remains might
be handed over to her after the law
had passed upon it. Her tears
broke through a hitherto rigid law,
and contrary to custom thisjbooni was
granted. While the execution was
in progress the mother and her only
daughter spent the fateful hour in
prayer at the residence of Rev.
Mr. Hall.
The truth and recent occurrence
of the following tale are (says M.
A. P.) vouched for by the Canon
of Ely. The much venerated and
saintly Bishop of Lincoln. Dr.
Edward King, is now advanced in
years and somewhat infirm. He
has recently been visiting Bournemouth for his health. After retiring one afternoon for some time
on a seat on the parade, he desired
to move and found some difficulty
in rising. A kind-hearted little
girl of the town was passing, and
noticing his difficulty ran up, paying : '' Oh, let me help you." Dr.
King gave her one of his sweet
smiles, and said: "You're a dear
little maiden, but I don't think
you're strong enough." "Why
bless you, sir," was the reply,
"I've often helped up daddy when
he was a sight worse drunk than
you are!"
True    Friendship.
As dews to the parched earth, as
the sail to the shipwrecked mariner
so is friendship amid the cares and
trials of life.. If men decry friendship it is because they have selected
those unworthy of trust or because
they themselves are inconstant.
Falsity in friends is impossible. It
only occurs where a masked friendship haa been the counterfeit of
virtue. So-called friends deceive
because they never should have
been selected as friends.

The budget speech of Hon. J. D.
Prentice,  the finance  minister of
British Columbia, has been issued
in pamphiet form.    It is not exactly a boom   document   for  the
province.    Fairly well as the Pacific coast has been progressing, it
has been surpassed by its administrative and other expenses.   The
demands upon the government and
legislature for  the outlay of public
money are large, varied and per-'
sistently pressed; aud there seems
so be no particular inclination to
resist  them.     According  to Mr.
Prentice, the net debt on June 3oth,
1901, was 86,497,757, or $36.38per
head of the province's population.
The same rate in Quebec would
make   the  provincial debt   some
sixty millions of dollars, instead of
about a third of that sum, as it is.
The annual charge for the current
year is put at $493,140, or 22i per
cent;!  of the total revenue.   The
revenue regularly falls below the
expenditure.     The  overdraft  on
June 30th last was expected to be
$1,768,000.   For the current year
the income is placed at $2,222,568,
and the expenditure at $2,468,127.
The prospective deficit is $263,559.
One of the government proposals
of the session was to make another
loan of $3,000,000. Another authorized larger obligations by way
of railway aid. Nobody seems to
have seriously considered where or
what courses that produced such
conditions were leading to, British Columbia has large resources,
not all of which, however are
available for taxation purposes.
Mining is passing through a period
in which it is more in need of encouragement than of the tax col-
collector's exactions. There is an
income tax, a realty tax and death
duties. There does not seem to be
much which the treasury can levy
on that is not now reached. On
the face of the finance minister's
statements it would seem that the
legislature has gone beyond reasonable lengths, and not even a successful raid by the province on the
Dominion treasury will put it on
a safe footing.—Montreal Gazette,

, The guest came down to breakfast sleepy and wild-eyed, but the
hotel proprietor cheerfully enquired : '" Did you enjoy the flute-
playing in the room next to you
last night?" "Enjoy it? I spent
half the night pounding on the

he played over all the tunes he knew
four times because the person in
the next room encored every
one!"—London Answers.

mer, I was   interested   in the ingenious way"in which a rock drill
had been rigged up • to   take the
place of one  or  two blacksmith
helpers in the blacksmith's shop.
The drill, minus the tripod,  was
fastened to a vertical support.   An
ordinary anvil was fixed in tt position under the ram, and the necessary air  connections   were made
with the cylinder.    When a blacksmith has some heavy hammering
to do, he has some one, as usual,
to manage this contrivance, while
the smith takes care  to have the
blows struck  in the proper place,
as with a steam hammer, except
that the blows are not as heavy)
but a sight more numerous in a
given space of time.     At the time
that I  saw  this  improvised (?)
steam   hammer  in operation the
blacksmith   was working down a
piece  of steel or   wrought  iron,
about  three  inches  wide at its
widest part, one inch thick at its
thickest part, 2$ feet long, Upering
in both width and thickness, and
the hammer appeared to be doing
excellent service.   It appeared to
me a very simple, effective and
quite inexpensive  apparatus,   especially considering the fact that
It, excepting the hammer head, was
rigged  up  from   material  to be
found in any inining outfit, and
that it could be very easily resolved
into itti original   parts  and their
former    d title*   resumed,    eineo
neither drill nor anvil miffer* any
from thin somewhat unusual nue."
