Canadian prosperity I
1——_ £
, Great Strides Being Made and the Future Brighter ht
Than It Ever Has Been. ^
In everv Canadian province but
British Columbia the wave of prosperitv
is felt, and it is good to see the hearty
frasp of conlidence with which Cans,
ians are beginning to take hold of
things. It is only a question of a short
time until British' Columbia, too, will be
in'the swim.
Speaking of Canada's prosperity,
Robert Munroe, president of the manufacturers' Association, says in a well-
written article in the Canadian Magazine :
" Never was the country so prosperous, never our people so harmoniously
optimistic The external trade tor the
fiscal year ending June 30 is reported
to be $423,000,000, or an increase pf ten
per cent, over last year. Of manufactures the increase is 15 per cent, so
that the increase in our industrial exports has more than kept pace with our
phenomenal increase in other departments."
Commentingupon President Munroe's
utterances, Stapleton Coldecott, writiug
in the Toronto Globe, says:
"Yet, in the face of this admitted
great prosperity, evidence of which we
see on every side, an evident desire is
showin fotv asking the people of this
cotretfyT;d"T»irSBHr"to~auditioual- taxa--
tion in the name of protection to our
manufacturing interests, for this, I take
it, is the meaning the manufacturers attach to what they call a 'thorough revision of the tariff, upon lines that shall
transfer to the wordshops of the conn-
try the manufacture of much of the
goods which under present conditions
are imported from foreign countries.
If at tbe present these goods are not
being made in this country, I presume
it means that a protection varying
from 20 to 25 per cent, ia not enough to
keep out imports from other countries.
"Now 1 can well understand that the
manufacturers will never be satisfied
until they Jget the wall of protection
erected  ho high that all   competition
shall  cease,  Mid  the whole trade  of
Canada placed entirely at their mercy.
But do they think that the great majority of our people will over consent to
such monopolies.    Free trade is  the
natural condition of things, and wherever any body of men want this natural
condi'lon reversed they must mppl>
most convincing reasons for the change
At present wo'aro happy lo the fact
that seven cut of every ten of our population are farmers, a condition which,
we hope, will long continue, for the
fact Is admitted that in other countries
leaving of the farms and entering the
cities Is a great  and increasing evil.
Why then should we by legislation seek
to draw people from the land, of which
we have million.-*, of acres yet untouched
by tho hand of man, to inatittfHctures
which at present would require a tax
upon the people of not less than 35 per
cent, before they could compete successfully wi'h good* made elsewhere?
Again, while   manufin-iuroi-s   are at
liberty to push their views with the tit-
most vigor mid Ability, would il not bo
wise to remember Unit the present %o.
emmuiu woiv put tut'.i jwiwi.t muni the
principle of u revenue tariff, and that
the country demanded, imt an increase,
but a Mihntaiitiiti dwie im» *A Hie taiiff
at the tlm* they assumed the reigns of
power? Mr. I arte calls Ate government
A free trade govciiiutcnt, and such it i<
supposed to be, mh far as it can go forward to remove the whack Iks thst b.iul
and     hinder     trade    development,
remembering the old doctrine,  ' The
more you tat dog-* the les« dog* you
will have,' and *.» llie tome you u\x
trade the lets trade will he the natural
result. But apart from this, why should
our tanners—who cannot be protect ed

«U that the farmer raises finds Us value

There are always a number of natural
industries that are indigenous to our
condition, which will always te\mj mid

many other industries that wiiiMinre(

•' The great question to be answered I
is, what will best develop the great re j
source that Uod has to abundantly

our unoccupied territory now, the best
and Urgent in the world, and hist as we
do this will our country grow In wraith.
Lata*, in tiie language of President
Munroe, be content to develop* steadily
and not aim at too rapid expansion.
At prm*nt mnnnfaeinrers mn do no
belter thing fer themselves and ior the
etmntry than w tarn their energies
towmrdi the attainment ol rapid and
cheap transportation. This, wilh the
settlement of ibe question of -tore put-
aetf arbitration tn labor disputes, will
give a g»«al lift   (orvard to the pro*
perity of Canada, place manufacturers
upon a logical and safe foundation, and
remove from the country the great
danger that comes from the present unsatisfactory condition of the labor
question and" the right and wrong use
of unionism."
it ia always au interesting pastime to
formulate comparisons by which the
vast area of Canada may be more fully
realized. In an article iu Leisure Hour's
for August Frank Yiegh has the following iparagraph, under the head of
"The Bigness of Canada ": The Canadian can at least boast of the area of
his native laud, comprising 3,653,000
square miles, or near'yon-twelfth of the
land area of the world, and. excluding
Alaska, larger than the United States
It.extends over twenty degrees of latitude, equal to the distance from Con-
stantinopleito the north pole. Twenty-
eight United Kingdoms, seventeen Ger-
manys. eighteen Frances, twenty Spains
and thirty-three Italys could be accommodated within its borders, or three
British Indias, or the whole Australian
commonwealth     Canada   forms   one-
large enough to give each inhabitant of
the Dominion over 400 acres of land
The American Geographical Society
has asserted that there are over a mil
lion square miles of practically unexplored territory in Northern Canada.
There are 12,000 miles of coast line, and
tho waves of three oceans beat upon
her shores. r,'wo Switzerland-* could
be sunk in Lake Superior. Hudson
Bay, HU) miles wide and 1,800 miles
from north to south, would swallow up
Norway, Sweden, Denmark aud Belgium. The great distances are indicated by tbe waterways. There is continuous navigation from the mouth of
the St. Lawrence river to the ;head of
Lake Supeilor, a distance of 2,381 miles.
The Mackenzie river, (lowing into the
Arctic ocean, is over 2,000 utiles long;
if it ran east and west it would stretch
half way across the Dominion. There
are four great parallel mountain ranges
on tho Pacific Hlope, Mount Hooitor,
10 000 feet high, being the king of the
peaks. Halifax is nearly 4,000 miles
from Victoria, greater than tliedistauce
across the Atlantic from Halifax to London. Canada has room for one hundred
million people.	
Canadn Iim now the assurance of the
most bountiful year In her historv, and
the harvest now being gathered "is certain to make an important addition to
the wealth of her people, says the Toronto Globe. In Ontario the wheat
crop will bo 25,000,000 bushels, or almost live million bushels more than last
year. The oat crop will be 105,000,000
u gain of over twenty-seven million
bushels as compnred with the output of
last year and the vield in barlev is es
timated at 21,000,000, a «ain of 4,4*00,oou

The railway* and lake ateamtliii,** are
productive enterprises, and thev de

tlieir services being quite as useful and
necessary as those of the men who
plough snd reap or make tne implements of the farm. A larire part nf the

foreign capital, bat tbe consumers on
the other Mm of tbe Atlantic must pay
Canadian industry not only tot pmdac-
tng the crop, but for hauling it to the
seaboard. Manitoba has more than
two million acres under wheat crop,
with every proi-pe.-t of an average of
thirty bushels to the acre, which will
mean a crop ot (50,000,000 bushels In
the Territories there are about 585,000
aercs of wheat, estimated to yield 17,
500,000 bushels Here we have a con-
servattve estimate of a crop that will
return 8*>O,O0O,O00 to the Dominion, or
will 'supply wealth to that extent to
Canadian 'productive enterprise Our
highest record of home-produced wheat
and flour exported was in the year end
irn-j' with .June, 1898, when the aggregate value was $22,700,005, and we
must remember shat the whole Dominion iriuet be provisioned from our
wheatfields before the surplus for export can be available. But the home
market is quite as profitable as' the
market abroad, and domestic trade is
as advantageous as the trade which
crosses our borders. In Manitoba and
the . erritories the area of the oat crop
.is slio'htlv over 1,000,000 acres, which
will vield from 00 to 100 bushels to the
acre.' This willmean another$25,000,000
added to the value of the western crop.
The barley crop in the west covers
about 360,000 acres, and will probably
be worth about $4,500,000.

ownership of vessel tonnage among the
nations of the earth, leading Spain

" I can't tell you any news now, because there isn't any to tell," said Mr.
Burbidge. "No agreement or understanding of any kind was reached. 1
believe," however, that we shall have
something to give out in a few days
Certain negotiations,are pending and
would have been closed now,, iu my
opinion, were it not for the fact that
Beveral men prominent in the smelter
trust are away at summer resorts and
other places." There will be no more
formal conferences, as 1 understood it,
but there may be a few meetings between people interested on both sides
in pursuance of the negotiations now
pending "

The report of the commission ap-i
pointed by the Victoria parliament to
inquire into the New Zealand compulsory arbitration law is entirely favorable. The commission took a great
deal of pains in collecting evidence,
their witnesses being selected from all
ranks and interests in the communities
where they prosecuted their inquiries,
and with scarcely au exception the
testimony was favorable to the act. It
is true there were suggestions that it
was defective in this, that or the other
particular, but ou the principle of compelling arbitration and making ihe decision of the arbitration court eniorcible
t>y law there was scarcely a dissenting
voice. The only comment that is hoard
from the incredulous ones is that which
has been luged against it from the beginning, namely, that it will break
down when the country encounters the
lean years which are sure to come. It
will then bo the employers who will be
able to show tho necessity for reductions of wages, and when thearbitratlon
courts begin issuing orders to this effect the law will be put to a severe test.
It muxt be said, however, that some of
the labor leaders express themselves
frankly to the effect that the working
men willobev the decision o( the court
as promptly when It is against them as
as when it is m their favor, as thoy
have been almost universally since the
law came Into operation. The law has
been coincident with good times, aud
whenever the workmen have pre
ferred a request for higher wages they
have been able to convince the courts
that the masters were prosperous and
getting good prices for their products.
The gratilying feature of the situation
Is that during that whole period u-rither
masters nor men have lost a cent

Harry Callahan, a well known mining
engineer, and formerly manager of the
Like View mine, is making a tour of
tte province In an interview concerning th6 Elmore process of oil concentration, Mr. Callahan said that there was
no doubt as to its practicability. He
had observed it In Co neon, but was of
the opinion, however, that the process
should not be applied directly to the
ore, as was the wish of tho Elmore people. He would.rather use it as a sec
ondarv treatment after the ore had been
concentrated in any ordinary method.
The slimes alone could thus be dealt
with aud a great body of country rock
got rid of before using the oil. The
question was merely one of cost and if
there was a good supply of cheap, heavy
oils in British Columbia,, and he understood that such was the case, there
would be little trouble on this score.

OscarSzooiiUigh, manager ofthe Le

some interesting information about
copner losses and the cost of smelting
at the big plant under his control,
"The average cost of smelting the
ore is about fJl.lKi per ton,1' said he.
" During July it was tl s5 a ton. During August it will run a little higher,
because of the short supply of ore and

every Thursday and has never been raided by the sheriiT. snowslided by cheap silver, or subdued by the fear of man. It works for the trail
blnzeras well as the bny-windowed and champagne-flavored capitalist. It aims to be on the right side of everything and believes that hell
should be administered to the wicked in large doses. It has stood the test of time, nnd an ever-increasing paystreak is proof that it is
better to tell the truth, even if the heavens do occasionally hit our smokestack. A chute of job work is worked occasionally for the benefit
ol humanity and the financier. Come in and see us, but do not pat the bull iIor on the cranium, or chase the black cow from our water
barrel: one is savage nnd the other a victim of thirst. One of the noblest works of creation is the man who always pays the printer: he is
sure of a bunk in paradise, with thornless roses for a pillow by night, and nothing but gold to look at by day.

Slocan City has adopted the correct
method. It would not be difficult
for New Denver to take steps along
this line. The beauties of the lake
trip, the scenery around New Denver and the innumerable points of
interest close by, are incomparable.
Other Slocan points have nothing to compare with it. New Denver stands distinct and alone as
the Queen of the Lake for scenic
beautv, climate and proximity of
ite points of interest. The flower
gardens, fruit orchards, and camping grounds in and aliout the town
would intercut every visitor. A nd

Tourist Association. By arranging to meet the excursion parties
that come this way, and show them

feeling that they had been well
treated nnd nicely entertained, and
would be glad to come back again.

They were cock-sure of winning.

walked about town  and  by noon
were   in   fit condition  to   go  up
against anything.   And
they did:     Cbas. Nelson looked after the interests of the boys with
Pythian colors, and he
didn't like the looks of
things. The confidence
that always is his had
a severe shaking up,  and  he did
not regain it until the third inning.

vfltf       the smiling   countenance   of   the   Union's
captain   that  he   had
something behind his
back that he wouldn't
tell about—but it was
not behind his back at
all, it was all in  his
mind.    He pitch  for  the Union,
and he pitched like a married man.
There was steam behind his balls,
and they  rattled the  Pythiaus in

located   them  it wasn't hard—to

Another and more striking illustration of this tenderness of heai't
in the great eommaiider occurred
at Petersburg during the closing-
week ■-. of the siege. General Lee's
headquarters was in a private
house beyond the reach, it was
thought, of the Federal artillery.-.
One morning he was standing with
several members of his staff under
a large tree, when a heavy shell
lauded not far distant. "Gentlemen," he said, "the enemy have
evidently got in range, and we had
better retire." Of course, nobody
would retire until the chief set the
example. The next moment an-
shell crashed through the top of the
tree above their heads, and all followed his advice except himself.
He stopped—and for what, do you
suppose? The shells had knocked
down a nest full of young birds,
and when the retreating officers
looked back they saw General Lee
pick up the nest and place it carefully on one of the lower branches
of the tree.

Think of the young women who

All people are made healthy and
happy by sunshine.
All plaut life depends upon sunshine for sustenance and vigor;
All animal life ditto—
And uo branch of the animal
kiugdom more then the human.
Not the sunshine of a single day;
It take* more than one day's
sunshine to ripen the delicious fruit
and make the roses bloom.
Likewise in the human life, it
requires more than one day's sun
shine to dispel the clouds of doubt
aud spiritual darkness that shadow
the heart and life;
More than one day's sunshine to
bring out the flowers of love from
the heart chilled by sadness and
More than one day's sunshine to
make the lives-of tluwe around yon
give forth the perfume that make*
life one long sweet dream.

means of a stout rope, so that
jumping is impossible. If tooth
continues to tuihe go to some dentist

you must imagine you see jumping
over a pair ot bars. Count from
sheep No. 1 up to sheep No. 57,482

friends and enemies. It is hated and loved

Sorrow for the dead   is  the only
sorrow from which we refuse to be
divorsed.     Every other wound we
seek to heal; every other affliction
to forget; but this  wound we consider our duty to keep open; this
affliction we cherish and brood over
in solitude.     Where is the mother
that would willingly  forget the infant that perished  like h  blossom
from her arms, though every recollection is a pang ?     Where", is  the
child that  would  willingly  forget
the most tender of parents, though
to  remember be but to   lament?
who, even in the hour, of agony,
would forget the friend over whom
he mourns ?   who, even   when the
tomb is closing upon  the  remains
of her most loved, and  he feels his
heart, as it were,  crushed  in the
closing of its portal,   would accept
consolation that was to be bought
by   forgefcfillness?     No, the love
which survives the tomb is one of
the noblest attributes of the soul.
If it has its woes, it has likewise its
delights; and when theoverwhelm-
ing burst of grief is calmed into
the  gentle   bear   of   recollection,
when the sudden anguish and the
convulsive agony over the present
ruins of all that we most  loved, is
softened away into pensive meditation on all that it was in the days
of its loveliness,   who  would root
out such a sorrow  from the heart?
Though it may sometimes throw a
a passing cloud ever, over the bright
hour of gaiety, or spread a deeper
sadness over the  hour   of gloom,
yet who would  exchange  it even
for the song   of   pleasure,  or the
burst of revelry ?   No;   there is a
voice from the tomb sweeter than
song; there is a recollection of the
dead to which we turn even from
the chavms of the living.     Oh, the
grave!—the gravel    It buries every
error; covers every defeat; extinguishes every resentment.    From
ite peaceful bosom spring none but
fond regrets  and tender recollections.    Who can look down upon
the grave even of an enemy,  and
not feel a compunctious throb, that
ever he should have  warred with
the poor handful of earth that lies
mouldering before him !
The grave of those we loved—
what a place for meditation! There
and finally,   one  thing leading to J
another,  they  together murdered
two revenue officers.    They were
tried and convicted and sentenced
to  be hanged together.    But here
Mathis balked.    When it came to
dying with  the  colored man  his
white man's blood  revolted.    He
applied to  his keepers and  those
about him, and  finally  succeeded
in having his petition hear! by the
supreme court. It might sunn that
this was merely an effort *o secure
delay, but the facts do not )ear this
idea out.    From the   stipulations
which he  declared  himself willing
to  make, it appears thatJ his real
object was, as he stated it/ to avoid
being hanged   with a  negro.    He
was even  willing to die a day or
two before  his sentence required,
in order to avoid this association,
which he had entered iu-fo without
protest when   he-wasofree.   The
supreme court,  however, was unable to take a favorable view of
of  his petition.   The court held
that the crime had been committed
by the two men, at the same time,
under identical conditions, and that
it  could not interfere with a uniform enforcement of the sentence.

the whole history of virtue and
gentleness, and the thousand endearments lavished upon us almost
unheeded in the daily intercourse
of intimacy; there it is that we
dwell upon the tenderness of the
parting scene; the bed of death
with all its stifled griefs; its noiseless attendants; its mute, watchful
assiduities; the last testimonies of
expiring love; the feeble, faltering,
(oh! how thrilling !) pressure of the
hand; the last fond look of the
glazing eye, turning upon us even

the faint, faltering accents strug

chance, and the results are as fanciful as they are unanticipated.
One summer, the last of John

his winnings and rejoined jhis

the same thing and was again successful. At frequent inteijvalg he
