In an interview last week .Manager
Greenwood, of the Fisher Maiden, said
to a Nelson Miner reporter:
"During the past month we have
been getting matters in shape for shipping and are now sacking ore as a preliminary thereto. The new company
took hold of the property on March 11,
1001, and I took charge on the first of
the present year. 1'nder the old regime
the development was confined to ihe
upper portion of the property. Since
then we have traced the vein down the
slope for a distance of I,5u0 feet mid
have developed the ledge by tunnels
driven in on it. One of the tunnels is
in !li> feet and the other ip in ill feel .and
a crosscut 1'2 feet from this has lapped
the ledge. By continuing the lower
tunnel to the end line of the property a
vertical depth of 750 feet can be gained.
The ledge can be traced on the surface
for 1500 feet and when the lower tunnel
is driven in the proper distance we will
have 750 feet of 'backB' and you can
realize what sort of an ore shoot we
have.
"The ledge is from eight to twelve
feet in width, and the paystreak is !W
lriehnn wide From a number of assays,
which Imve been made after careful
sampling, 1 am confident that the ore,
which is what is known an dry ore, will
easily average 100 ounces In silver to
the ton. We are certain of thi* ns there
are portionw of tho ledge that will away
UK) ounces to the ton, hut I want to bo
conservative and I would rather underestimate than overeHtlmare the value of
the ore. The fonnatio:. is very easily
worked, and an much as four and a half
feet of drifting can be made In a day.
The mine is about seven miles from the
lake, mid we estimate that the com of
bert hall recently the immense
building was packed to the doors
with enthusiasts pledged to uphold
Protestantism of the nation and to
demand the suppression of the
mass and confessional in the Established Cliureh, into which it is contended they have been introduced
through the Government's abuse of
patronage and by certain bishops
in defiance of law. Viscount Mul-
dleton presided, supported by Lord
Kinnaird and Lord Overton, some
members of parliament, prominent
evangelical clergymen, and the
notorious anti-Ritualist book-seller
Kensit. The speeches declared
that there was a conspiricy afloat
to undermine the Protestant, religion, aud denounced the dangers of
the introduction into Great Britain
of bodies of celibate, militant
Catholics, who profess to be
driven out of their own country
by persecution. Was it not a fact,
asked Viscount Middletou, that
these orders were compelled, sooner
-oHaterrto-quit*mTj^eouritry~whirr¥
they established themselves because
thoy only acknowledged the authority of their own superiors, regardless of the law of the land? lie
protested amid enthusiastic applause against the planting among
English Protestants of communities
of men with such a record.

duties as postmistress  the business
of Inlying and  selling "coon cats,"
as the long-haired   Angora, pussies
are called down in Maine,   On one
trip into the country she bought a
cat of  Nelson   Hunt.      Mr. Hunt
represented   that   the   cat's   first
name ought   to he   Thomas.   On
that consideration Miss Inez Maude
Harding paid S1.7A for the critter.
But when she got   home with her
purchase     she    discovered    that
Thomas would not fit  that  cat.
The name   tliat  belonged   to   tho
feline was Maria.    Now, according
to the   best  rules governing  the

feature, of the situation at the present

Wm. M. Brewer, representative of
the New York EnK'hiecriiig- and Mining
.louriial, ie a nmii of vast experience in
miiiiiis>-, and one whose opinion is entirely reliable He recently visited the
Boundary mines, and in an interview
with the Nelson Miner, said tli.it lie was
convinced that the mines of the Boundary could mine and treat ore for £8 a
ton. This might not pay interest on
the investment but it would make an
allowance for wear and tear. Asked if
this was unusually low, ho said he believed it was the lowest cost at which
any metalliferous mines of the world
were worked with the poesibleexception
of the iron mines of Alabama, and there
colored labor is used.
Going further into details he said
that the ore bodies were so large, the
quantity of timber required so small,
and the ore was such a perfect Hux in
itself, that these results could be ob-

adopted part of the ore is left to fill up
the stope until it is worked out to the
surface so that the drill may be set on
it. When one stope is finished this loose
ore will be taken oui, and when all in a
single stope is considered he thought
that the cost would be about as he had
stated. In two mines he had seen ore
blocked out that was 120 feet each way.
He had thought tlmt when copper went
down to 12 or 11 cents that it would be
all off with the. Boundary, hut now he
believed that it could stand ton-cent or
possibly nine-cent copper.
Speaking as to the department of the
inining industry of the province from
which greatest results miirht be expected, he said that he thought the great
mainstay would be the gold copper
mines. These ore bodies occurred of
such immense size that the aintnint that
would be procured frnni them w.-ih very
largo. He did not look upon the free
milling mines as of much importance,

HOKSKFLY    CAMP    XOTF.S.
Senator It. H. Campbell, manager of
the Horsefly Trading and Transportation Company,says the Ashcroft Journal,
whose headquarters are at Harper's
Camp, came up from Victoria Wednesday to conclude a contract with the
Cariboo Protective Association, to deliver all the freight at the company's
store at Harper's Camp. Part of the
freight is here and it will go forward at
once. The balance will be here in a -
few days. All this freight will be taken
in by way of the 111-Mile House.' Mr.
Sutherland, of the Cariboo Trading
Company, has accepted a position with
Senator Campbell's company.
Negotiations have been going on with
the owners of a steamer in Kootenay
for the purchase of its machinery, and
if they are successful, the machinery''
will be bi-oughtJLver_asjLOM]uiH,n_Qi-sib]e	
and taken to Harper's Camp,
There will be no difficulty about the
building of a steamer at Harper's Camp.
The Miocene Gravel Mining "Company
has a saw mill and can supply the lumber on short notice.
A correspondent writes from Lac I,a
Hacha, under date of Feb. 10, that four
parties left the 115-Mile House that
morning for Horsefly. They were
Messrs. C.-iriithers anil Mills, of Vancouver; C. M. Kirk, of Seattle; Hamilton
and Ogden, of l.ac Lu JJaohe; and I).
McCullen. Two others of the Hamilton
boys will leave in a day or two.
The Cariboo Trading Company will,
it ie understood, have a branch store at
Harper's Camp, and if business warrants, will later move it to the new
ramp at the headwaters of the Horsefly.
ijuite a number of prospectors have
within the last three weeks left Ashcroft for the Horsefly diggings. Most
of them candidly admit that they do not
expect to accomplish anything with font-

silver-lead mines were tho next best to
placer mines for the poor ninn, but the
future of thein he did not consider so
bright.
All the mining industry of the pro
vlnce requires, in Mr, Drewer'n estimation, is not to be hampered with taxes
ami too much legislation The tax on
the output wan a most unfair one Ho
would suggest a tax hy which the
vacant claims would bo made to pay an
much hh thone that are operated, or
revert to the government. At present
a very In rife portion of the province
was mineral claima and held by thone
who would neither work or Hell them,
lit consequence nothing win being done
on them and the province was gutting
little reVDiiue from the owner*. ' As the

opens, and if they delay it means to
give others the lirst chance. They say
it will not coit thorn any more to stay
tho balance of the winter in camp at
Horsefly than it does lo live at the
hotels on the coast.
There is no doubt au advantage in
being on the creeks early in the season.
Locations can be made and some pros-

Bull dogs are not supposed to
have an}r sense.
Horses and editors are.
There are exceptions, of course.
When I confess that I haven't
any you won't expect any from me.
But let me give you some logic
that Mrs. Bull shoots at me.
She says the world is full of fools
and that the man who doesn't want
to see one every day should shut
himself up in a room and break the
looking-glass.
She knows better than to say
such a thing to the women.
Perhaps she thinks the women
of New Denver are married and
don't use looking-glasses.
She always did go too much on
appearances.
Before our editor left   for   California he read a book on "How to
Travel."
—He is now looking for   the trail
mark as they passed along:
"Patrick, why can't we live as
paceable and lovin' togither as
them dogs?"
"Jist tie 'em togither and see
how they'll fight," replied Pat.
Pat lied.
No animal pair, except the human brute, light with one another.
They may not love sentimentally,
but they love physically, ammally.
And this is more than many human animals do.
They think they love before marriage, but after the knot is tied and
the new thing has become old, they
find they mistook passion for love.
Carnal passion is warm stuff
when it is once aroused.
Even dogs have it.
But love isn't that kind of stuff.
Love conies from God;
Passion is the wakening up of
the animal in man.
Passion is a, hard taskmaster.
Love an easy one.
Passion seeks to get and hold,
but is never satisfied.
Its greed is never quenched.
Love seeks to give.
Love takes only that which it
would make others happy in giving.
Love is long suffering, patient
and kind.
Its life is in the giving.
Cease to give, love to others, and
love dies in oneself.
Give it forth bountifully and the
fountain will be refilled with a*
fresher supply.
Retain it, and love stagnates and
sours one's soul.
Passion eats the heart out of
men and women.
Their's is a living death.

WHATI IS MEANT   HY  "CHKISTlAN"?
§|_ In an impeachment of our arch-
istic economic and social system, a
writer in the "Arena" on the cause
of anarchism says :
"Anarchism could not be, were
society well organized and industry just and Christian. It is the
cry of insane wrath against the
horrors of our civilization—a civilization that dooms hosts of hardworking men to squalid poverty,
joyless toil, hourly fear of the
morrow, ghastly disease, and ultimately death, and that opens below to hosts of hard-working, half-
starved women the hell of harlotry."
As with the word "religions," it
all depends on what we mean by
the word "Christian"when used in
connection with "industry." The
writer of ihe "Arena" article may
have a revised creed of his own
making, but if "Christain" ethics
are really based upon the creeds of
the leading denominations known
by that name,, including the llom-
and' Greek Catholic—the mothers
and grandmothers of all the younger Christian sects—then it is
nothing to be wondered at that
Christians rob and butcher each
other in cheir wars of conquest, or
that they rob and starve each other
in their industrial wars, or that
i they look with unconcern upon
'the hells of economic suffering, the
j hells of vice and of crime caused

THE LEDttK, NEW DENVER, B. (J., FEBRUARY 20. 1902.
heard his Olifc murdered
^ Beerbohrn Tree, the noted Eng
lish actor, has just secured the
English rights of a dramatization
of Charles Foley's powerful short
story, "At the Telephone," in
which M. Antoine has created a
sensation in Paris. It pictures the
terrible experience of a wealthy
Frenchman, who leaves his family
peaceful and happy at his country-
place near Marseilles, and, on his
arrival in Paris,the next day, hears
over a telephone their harrowing
cries for aid and futile appeals to
the robbers who are murdering
them. We reprint a translation of
this story, which appeared in the
San Francisco Argonaut of August
30, 185)7. j
We happened to come out of the
club together, and so walked along
the boulevard with M. Maroux, a1
man with a kindly face but marked
with an infinite melancholy.
"Will you wait a minute for me?"
said I; as we reached the post-
oflice. ' 'I wish to go in and telephone."
He started at the last word, and
I saw his grip tighten on his cane.
When I returned, he still seemed
nervous, and to break an uncomfortable silence I made some commonplace remark about what a
marvelous invention the telephone
was, and what inestimable services
the progress of science is doing us
every day.        »
"Do you think so?" replied M.
Maroux, in a tone of bitter irony.
"It seems to me, on the contrary,
that science, far from aiding us,
only emphasizes our human weakness and cruelly multiplies the
means that can cause us suffering.
Hut you will understand me better
if 1 give you an example of what I
mean from my own experience:
I was spending my autumn va-
^tion with Louise, my wife, and
Jfarccl, my little son, at my country-place at Morande, which I had
the window and called Blaise. He
took the gun, loosed the dogs, and
made a tour of the house, but did
not find anything suspicious. Baby,
who did not suspect anything, the
fine little fellow, has waked up and
is calling me. Good-by. If you
have a moment before dinner, call
me up again."
Only half re-assured, I plunged
into tho business in hand, and was
not able to go to the telephone again
until after eight o'clock. I had to
call a long time.
"Hello, hello!" I called. "Why
don't you answer, Louise? What
is the matter?''
"Something we did not expect
this afternoon.    The shutters had
been fastened, the dogs untied, and fie(|j
Nanette had put up a bed for Blaise j    j shook tho telephone box in my
Clutching at the box for support'
I could only cry: "Louise, I beg of
you, do not leave me in this silence
—what do you hear?"
"The dogs are growling—now
they are barking—barking furiously. They have run to the bottom
of the garden—now, suddenly they
are still—there is a deathly silence.
But—yes, it sounds like muffled
footsteps on the pebbled walk—as
if some one were coming toward
the house——''
"Go on, speak, Louise! I am
strangling. I shall go mad! What
do you hear?—what do you hear
now?"
"Nothing, now—almost nothing
—yes, there is a gentle, steady
grating sound, as if a chisel were
being slipped under a shutter to
force it—the sash gives way—a
window- is broken—oh, I am terri-
in the hall, in order to save us the
terrors of last night, when a boy
from the village brought a note for
Blaise. His mother had suddenly
been taken very ill,and she wanted
him to come to her immediately.
The boy, whom we had never seen
before, went away again as soon as
he had delivered the note, without
giving us any further information.
Blaise, who adores his mother, was
quite upset. He did not want to
leave us alone before daylight, but
his sorrowful face told how dearly
the delay *would cost him. I
thought that if this woman dies tonight, I shall have prevented poor
Blaise from receiving her last blessing. So I overcame my scruples
and made him go. He promised to
return this evening, and to save
time he will drive back. I have
just bolted the doors after him.
That is why I kept you waiting.
Now, how is that business affair
getting along?"
"Very well, but let us talk about
yourself. You should not have let

just bought. It was in the country,about three leagues out of Marseilles. Nanette, our old servant,
was both housekeeper and cook.
Blaise, who was devoted to me, delighted at being once more near the
city where his worthy old mother
lived, fulfilled the functions of gardener and had his quarters in a
detached out-house.
With my gun on my arm and
my two dogs at my heel, I used to
wander about all day with my wife
and baby in that delightful solitude.
To make amends for our isolation,
I had a telephone line put up to
connect with the central ollice at
Marseilles,and by it every evening,
as I sat in my bedchamber, 1 could
learn what had been done during
the day at iny factory in Paris.
Our peaceful life was interrupted
by a notice from my superintendent: by making personal application
I could probably obtain an important government order. The wenth-
er was w> line and Marcel seemed
so well that Louise decided to wait
for me at Morande. Hut on the
eve of my departure for Paris, the
rain fell in torrents. When tho
hired vehicle arrived before my
door,at sight of the immense black-
ncsH of the iields and woods 1 felt a
midden gripping at my heart.
"You will  lie  away   only   two
iiiglttH,
Louise    reassured   me;
agony.   ' -Telephone to Marseilles,''
I cried, "to warn the police!"
"How can I?—the city is three
leagues away—they would come
too late—and I can not—oh, I am
going mad ''
"Call for help! or hide yourself
—yes, that's it. Take the little
one and hide!"
< '.I can not, I have no strength
left—they are coming, the stairs
creak—they are in the hall—they
are feeling along the wall, they try
the door—Marcel! My God—help,
hei "
There were two mullled cries of
terror. Then a vague, confused
noise. Then a jumble of indefinable sounds, then silence. Something seemed to crack in my brain,
and I fell unconscious.
Gasping as if he had lived through
this terrible scene again, M. Maroux
concluded: "From the Gazette
Judiciaire you can learn the details
of the crime. It is known as 'The
Morande Atrocity.' By it I lost
my wife, my child, and my two
servants. But no report can describe, no mere words can ever ex-
pres8~the~hideous~"nightmare-that
modern science brought me, the
frightful torture of a man who,at a
distance of a hundred leagues,hears
the despairing cries of his wife and
son, who are being strangled while
he is powerless to do more than
batter inipotently on a wooden telephone box."

was in knowing that he was hear
you, and now he is gone. And
then that boy who ran away before
you had time to think of making
sure his news was true. At any
rate, Blaise has left you the two
dogs and the gun, has he not?"
"The two dogs are asleep on the
porch. As for the gun,Blaise must
have left it in the hall. I shall go

Marcel ? He is sitting in my lap,

But that uneasiness, which had

at the thought of this strange, incredible letter which had token

only man in the house. My
thoughts took ho dark a turn that
by the time I reached the hotel T
could not swallow a mouthful. I
left the table to return to the telephone oflice, but my agent found
me and laid liefore me a lot of details which were essential to the
succchm of my venture. I could not
dismiss him immediately, and it
was late when 1 re-entered the

with impatience, and my hand

No animal pair, except the human brute, fight with one another.

They think they love before marriage, but after the knot is tied and

H In an impeachment of our arch-
istic economic and social system, a
writer in the "Arena" on the cause
of anarchism says :
"Anarchism could not be, were
society well organized and industry just and Christian. It is the
cry of insane wrath against the
horrors of our civilization—a civilization that dooms hosts of hardworking men to squalid poverty,
joyless toil, hourly fear of the
morrow, ghastly disease, and ultimately death, and that opens below to hosts of hard-working, half-
starved women the hell of harlotry."
As with the word "religions," it
all depends on what we mean by
the word "Christian"when used in
connection with "industry." The
writer of ihe "Arena" article may
have a revised creed of his own
making, but if "Christain" ethics
are really based upon the creeds of
the leading denominations known
by that name, including the Rom-
aud Greek Catholic—the mothers
and grandmothers of all the younger Christian sects—then it, is
nothing to be wondered at that
Christians rob and butcher each
other in cheir wars of conquest, or
that they rob and starve each other
in their industrial wars, or that
> they look with unconcern upon
the hells of economic suffering, the
hells of vice and of crime caused
by their own narrow selfishness
and remorseless greed.

Beerbohm Tree, the noted English actor, has just, secured the
English rights of a dramatization
of Charles Foley's powerful short
story, "At the Telephone," in
which M. Antoine has created a
sensation in Paris. It pictures the
terrible experience of a wealthy
Frenchman, who leaves his family
peaceful and happy at his country-
place near Marseilles, and, on his
arrival in Paris,the next day, hears
over a telephone their harrowing
cries for aid and futile appeals to
the robbers who are murdering
them. We reprint a translation of
this story, which appeared in the
San Francisco Argonaut of August
30, 1897.
We happened to come out of the
club together, and so walked along
the boulevard with M. Maroux, a
man with a kindly face but marked
with an iniinite melancholy.
"Will you wait a minute for me?''
said I, as we reached the post-
office. "T wish to go in and telephone."
lie started at the last word, and
1 saw his grip tighten on his cane.
When I returned, he still seemed
nervous, and to break an uncomfortable silence I made some commonplace remark about what a
marvelous invention the telephone
was, and what inestimable services
the progress of science is doing us
every day.
"I)o you think so?" replied M.
Maroux, in a tone of bitter irony.
"It seems to me, on the contrary,
that science, far from aiding us,
only emphasizes our human weakness and cruelly multiplies the
means that can cause us suffering.
But you will understand me better
if I give you an example of what I
mean from my own experience:
I was spending my autumn va-
♦tion with Louise, my wife, and
■areel' my little son, at my coun-
—4rry-plaee-at-Morande?-wIiich-I-had
just bought. It was in the country,about three leagues out of Marseilles. Nanette, our old servant,
was both housekeeper and cook.
Blaise, who was devoted to me, delighted at being once more near the
city where his worthy old mother
lived, fulfilled the functions of gardener and had his quarters in a
detached out-house.
With my gun on my arm and
my two dogs at my heel, 1 used to
wander about all day with my wife
and baby in that delightful solitude.
To make amends for our isolation,
J had a telephone line put up to
connect with the central ollice at
Marseilles,and by it every evening,
as I sat in my bedchamber, 1 could
learn what had been done during
the dav at mv factory in Paris.
the window and called Blaise. He
took the gun, loosed the dogs, and
made a tour of the house, but did
not find anything suspicious. Baby,
who did not suspect anything, the
fine little fellow, has waked up and
is calling me. Good-by. If you
have a moment before dinner, call
me up again."
Only half re-assured, I plunged
into the business in hand, and was
not able to go to the telephone again
until after eight o'clock. I had to
call a long time.
"Hello, hello!" I called. "Why
don't you answer, Louise? What
is the matter?''
"Something we did not expect
this afternoon. The shutters had
been fastened, the dogs untied, and
Nanette had put up a bed for Blaise
in the hall, in order to save us the
terrors of last night, when a boy
from the village brought a note for
Blaise. His mother had suddenly
been taken very ill,and she wanted
him to come to her immediately.
The boy, whom we had never seen
before, went away again as soon as _yeg> that>6 A    Take   the   litt]e
he had delivered the note, without j one mi(j hide!"
Clutching at the box for support'
I could only cry: "Louise, I beg of
you, do not leave me in this silence
—what do you hear?"
"The dogs are growling—now
they are barking—barking furiously. They have run to the bottom
of the garden— now, suddenly they
are still—there is a deathly silence.
But—yes, it sounds like muffled
footsteps on the pebbled walk—as
if some one were coming toward
the house ''
"Go on, speak, Louise! I am
strangling. I shall go mad! What
do you hear?—what do you hear
now?"
"Nothing, now—almost nothing
—yes, there is a gentle, steady
grating sound, as if a chisel were
being slipped under a shutter to
force it—the sash gives way—a
window is broken—oh, I am terrified!"
I shook the telephone box in my
agony. "Telephone to Marseilles,"
I cried, "to warn the police!"
"How can I?—the city is three
leagues away—they would come
too late—and I can not—oh, I am
going mad ''
Call for help! or hide  yourself
giving us any further information.
Blaise, who adores his mother, was
quite upset. He did not want to
leave us alone before daylight, but
his sorrowful face told how dearly
the delay would cost him. I
thought that if this woman dies tonight, I shall have prevented poor
Blaise from receiving her last blessing. So I overcame my scruples
and made him go; He promised to
return this evening, and to save
time he will drive back. I have
just bolted the doors after him.
That is why I kept you waiting.
Now, how is that business affair
getting along?"
"Very well, but let us talk about
yourself. You should not have let
Blaise go.    Even if he drives back,
"lean not, I have nb strength
left—they are coming, the stairs
creak—they are in the hall—they
are feeling along the wall, they try
the door—Marcel! My God—help,
hei "
There were two' mullled cries of
terror. Then a vague, confused
noise. Then a jumble of indefinable sounds, then silence. Something seemed to crack in my brain,
and I fell unconscious.
Gasping as if he had lived through
this terrible scene again,M.Maroux
concluded: "From the Gazette
Judiciaire you can learn the details
of the crime. It is known as 'The
Morande Atrocity.' By" it I lost
my wife, my child, and my two
servants. But no report can describe, no mere words can ever ex-

"The two dogs are asleep on the
porch. As for the gun, Blaise must

and make sure. Can you hear
Marcel? He is sitting in my lap,
and is saying good-night to you.
Listen!"
••Good-night, papa, good-night."
"Good-night, my darlings. I

Once outside 1 felt oppressed with

lirst came into existence they have
had to contend with this thing.
The coast machine pushers were
beaten at their own game.and they
are not pleased. The man they
were believed to have .scientifically
killed a year or more ago. has come
to life again, and has ridden roughshod over their pet ideas aud foggy
customs. Like Truth, he will not
be downed.    The manner in which
1
he look the convention oil'  its   feet •
—or rather took   the heads of  the
executive and brought the convention to his feet—was worth  a*  trip
to Vancouver to see. The Executive
was composed almost entirely of E.
V.   Bod well   men   and    virtually
elected itself  Credentials  Committee.    In the afternoon Frank Burnett made a motion that the committee be  reorganized.    Chairman
Senator Templeton refused   to put
the motion, but was compelled to
do so on not being sustained by the
meeting.    As a result the Credentials   Committee    reorganized    on
broader   lines.      At   the   evening
session the committee brought in a
report  declaring members of the
Executive. Liberal editors of newspapers, others than de facto delegates, delegations from Cassiar and
Esquimalt, picked by Bod well, and
the Nanaimo labor delegation  ineligible to sit.    After a violent row
the report was   carried.    Senator
Templeman promptly left the chair
aud-hal!, fo!!owed-by-the-ExecutivO"
and the rank and file of the Bodwell
supporters.    The convention then
elected G-. R. Maxwell, M.P., chairman and president of the association, and later selected  Martin  as
leader of the party.    In his speech
accepting   the   leadership   Martin
said he was thoroughly  in  accord
with the Laurier administration.

I   "We believe in the doctrine taught
by Christ:   we  believe that he was
the first socialist, that his life  was
j a practical, living reality of soeial-
| isin,but we do not accept his spiritual teachings."    This  is the way
so many   socialist   fakirs   express
themselves, when confronted   with
the question of Christian socialism.
They are willing to steal  the good
from   Christ,   but  refuse  to honor
His  name.    A   thief   who  would
enter your home at night and take
from you your wealth acts   more
honorable.    Men who curse their
Savior  Christ,   whose   lives  have
nothing   of    Christ     in     them,
whose     thoughts     are     bigoted,
narrow,   vile,   have no  right,  in
honesty and justice,to point to Him
as  an   exponent   of   their   creed.
Christ, was not an exponent of that
kind of socialism.    Christ had  no
creed.    Christ's whole life was devoted to the spiritualpart of man.
He eared nothing for the carnal
part of him, only insofar as to teach
that a healthy, physical body  was
the   proper abode for a healthy,
energetic soul.    He taught that to
attain spirituality man must act in
absolute justice to his brother;  to
practise love,cleanliness iu thought

he acts the part of a contemptible

Templeman in his light to hold the
leadership of the Liberal party, but
it came too late, and Sir Wilfrid
Laurier iu placed in the embarrassing predicament' of having named a
man for his cabinet who could not
even hold the chairmanship of tlie
convention of his party at his home.
The cabinet appointment seems to
have been intended as a lubricant
to keep thp machine in  motion.
How it will terminate no one would
dare to   predict, but it is Bafe to
wager that Joe Martin will keep
the machine disabled so long m he
