LUHIIKIl   INOUtiTllY   IIOOM. j
Nakusp, thu center of the lumbering)
induntrt, of Went KooU-niiiy, btu* lately
been the scene of considerable excite
ment with regard to the wholesale
•taking of lino limber limits along the
Arrow lakes On both shies of the lakes
timber lands hare recently been slaked
to the eitent of thousands nf aires. Applications have been made »o the gov-
eminent for timber fifteen tu twenty
miles back from the Columbia river.
Nearly every available block of good
land has beeit located.
This activity commenced about nine,
months ago, when the Ludgate syndi
cate commenced staking timber in all
directions Their example was quickly
followed by other lumbermen in the
neighborhood. Tho work of cruising
out timber limits has been going on all
winter Many arduous trips have been
made long distances from the lake
shore, and as fast as the land was secured it was transferred to the Ludgate
people or some other big outfit. Tho
prices paid for timber have, been good,
some deals amounting to over $100,000.
There, appears to be an unlimited supply of money fer West Kootenay timber
limits. There are several representatives of big eastern ami Pacific coast
syndicates at RevelBtoke and elsewhere
along tlie Columbia who are ready to
purchase anv timber lands that will cut
10.000 feet to tbe acre.
This year will see tlie present capacity of the Arrow lake sawmills moro
than doubled. The Ludgates and others
will build mills at Arrowhead, Nakusp
and probaoly West Robson. Several
shingle mills will also be erected as
soon as the weather permits. The reason for this is the great demand from
the Northwest territories for Kootenay
lumber and shingles.
Spokane and other American capitat
is becoming interested in the Kootenay
lumber industry. The reason for this
is the scarcity '.of merchantable timbot
in the northeastern portion of the State
of Washington.
It is the opinion of experienced lum
bermen in this section that iho price of
timber will advance 500 percent by next
autumn.—Rossland Miner
Want Lower Itaten for Tourist*
A movement is on foot in Kaslo to induce the boards of trade and city councils of Kootenay to use their influence
with the railroads to get low rates for
tourists wishing to visit Kootenay during the coming season. The movement should be pushed for all there is
in it, as the tourist trade is very desirable and profitable.

Two hundred and fifty delegates, representing every mining camp in the
Province, met fn convention at Victoria
last Wednesday and proceeded to organize the Provincial Mining Associa
tion. A committee of ten was named
to draft a constitution and bylaws, aud
rules of order for the guidance of the
Association. On the committee were:
C. T. Rand, Hon. D. W. Higgins, J. B.
Hobson, ChriB Foley, A. C. Gait, Senator Reed, S. S. Taylor, W. S. Drewry,
Jas. Stables, M. P. P., and A. C. Flum-
merfelt
The following officers were elected:
President, John Keen, Kaslo; first
vice-president, J. B. Hobson, Cariboo;
second vice-president, D. W. Higgins,
Victoria; secretary, A. L. Belvea, Victoria; treasurer, A. B Fraser, Victoria
An executive committee consisting of
15 members—mining men selected from
all sections, was also appointed.
The convention, realizing the great
amount of work before it, started at
once to hold night sessions. A great
number of resolutions have been adopted, all suggesting some measure by
which the mining industry might be
benefitted
The following resolutions relating to
capital and labor are important: "This
association shall be non-political and
shall not permit discussion in any of its
conventions or meetings of social problems; nor shall it interfere in any way
with labor unions, provided, however,
that the association shall be at liberty
to use its good offices iu adjusting and
settling labor difficulties "
"Resolved, that tho government of
British Columbia be hereby requested
to forthwith appoint a commission of_
three members, "wlidisetluty it sKaTrbe
to examine as fully as possible into the
existing relations of employer and employee engaged iu the mining industry
In this Province, and to gather data on
the questions of capital and labor therein employed; said commission to meantime be regarded as a conciliation board
in any mining labor troubles that may
occur, with a view to the settlement and
prevention of such trade disturbances."
By Chris Foley: "Resolved, that the
Government be respectfully requested
to constitute said board of conciliation
by the appointment of the following: (a)
One practical mine manager; (b) one
practical mine worker, and (c) a chairman mutually agreed upon by the other
two. This board shall have the power
to collect information under oath, and
its future duty shall be to make prompt
report from time to time to tho minister
of mines, through whom the press and
public may be informed of the situa.
tion "
Resolutions were passed endorsing
the resolutions passed at Sandon in connection with the silver-lead industry,
favoring the abolition of tha 2 per cent
tax, asking that the collection of dues
by tho Government in respect to timber
and cordwood used by the owner* upon
mines and mineral 'claims bo discontinued, suggesting amendments to tho
signal code, asking for smaller fee* and
less exacting rules with respect to
boiler inspection, declaring that tha
rights acquired under a free miner's
certificate should not be forfeited should
that certificate lapse, that "for the purpose of taxation a crown granted mineral claim should he placed in the same
position as other mineral claims, and
exemption from tbe tax Imposed bv
section 145 should be extended to all
groups of crown granted claims upon
kiiy of which claims asHessment work
for the whole fctoup mav have been performed " Another resolution auks that
British Columbia bn represented by
counsel at the Alaskan boundary com-
minion.
The convention favored the reduction
of crown grant fees from U'» to %1*\ and
want* the government to sisiit In the
Mipprciixioii of fraudulent wild catting.
A ifHotutloii was alio pa-oicd favoring
the allowing of proKttectors to stake

THE LBDOJS, NKW DENVER, B. C, HABCH 5 1U03
tbey find a Common foe
Against the public house
Great Britain and the cafe
France, war is now being waged
along novel lines. Both are almost
national institutions, hoth are the
popular resorts of the masses, and
both are charged with being tbe
cause of widespread misery and de-
Wb have nothing in this country that resembles the cafe, and
the bar. as we have it, is only a
feeble imitation of the pub. Neither
can take root in Canadian soil, because tbey require a different state
of public opinion to that which
prevails here.
"When a mau takes a-drink in
France, and particularly-in Paris,
he wants all the world to know it.
He will sit for hours at one ofthe
. thousands of tables that are placed
on the street pavement by the
cafes,; with his favorite beverage in
front of him, sipping at it while he
gazes and is gazed upon by tbe
'. i passing throng. Not only the men,
but the women also freely enjoy
this sort of diversion. Paris does
its drinking, therefore, mainly on
ibe streets. It makes an ostentatious display of its hottles and
glasses- If drinking were the
national virtue it could not be more
., ..freely advertised.
Against this system, one did not
until recently hear any protest. It
wa3 the recognized way of living
snd that was sufficient. But lately
a movement bas been started
against the cafe. It has its inception in placards which have been
placed throughout the city denouncing alcohol and the patent
appetizers, to which the French
are addicted, as poisons: This attack is to be met by the display of
other posters quoting high scientific
opinion to the contrary, giving statistics in support of that view, and
recommending the public to use
but not 10 abuse the . stimulating
beverages. The French are much
addicted to the poster habit,
times of turmoil posters break out
everywhere. Some political newspapers bfgin and end their career
. as posters. So the cafe is up against
L a poster war, which is the distinctly
French method of carrying on an
agitation.    The end is not yet.
Tbe public house is indigenous
to England. It aims to cater to
all classes and conditions, and both
sexes. Each pub is divided into
compartments, like the stalls at a
cattle show. There is the parlor
bar and the saloon bar for the well-
to-do. The lounge bar, the work-
ingman's barr and the ladies' bar.
Each of tlie different classes into
which the patrons care to sort
themselves has its own bar its own
grade of liquors and puces and its
own p-irticnlai an of comfort Oi
the reverse The public house is
always the busiest =pot on any
street The btrmaid is not the
laughing damsel of fiction She is
coarse and well on in yeii= This

thousand hai maids m the Lmted
Kingdom bnt it i« of the vast ma
jontj Likewise the tvengeflowei
gu 1 of London of whom many
dainty pictures are extant will
nevei see the sunny side of <=ixtj
again The distinctive featuieot
the pnbhc hom-e is the mdiscnm
mate drinking of both se-ves together and the consequences, are
unspeakably deplorable
By the new liquor a<t which
came into force on January 1st,
some extraordinarj ies*iicttons lie
imposed on the public house It
is forbidden to sell hquor to an
habitual di unkurd I his is of itself
a reasonable and t piopei leatnc
tion, but the consequences of thi
law have not been what wis e\
pected \. magistrate may on syf
hueut evidence decide that anj
pei ion complained a^inst is an
habitual diuiikntd Such a peistui
will bo liable to a line if withm
fchiee \ear« then
tobuv   into\ii atitk-.
disorderly or not, is to be arrested
and fined. Even a person lending
another money by which he secures
liquor that leads to intoxication is
liable to punishment.
A feature of the law which bas
proven unexpectedly popular ib the
clause providing for the separation
of husbands and wives in consequence of drunkenness. Where a
marked mau or woman is an habitual drunkard the wife or the husband may seek and obtain separa-
place. The people can be fooled
uo longer. The social problem, as
Dr. Lyman Abbott puts it, has
been reduced to the ample proposition, whether we, of tiie twentieth centnry, are going to be governed by a plutocracy or a democracy, and there can be no donbt as
to what our decision will be. It is
already formed in the consciences
of the people and the next few years
will see it worked out in the |
gradual but certain acceptance of I
the principles of the Co-operative
Commonwealth. So logically and
inevitably do the demands of the
social conscience and the appli
tion from a magistrate. Thisclanse'*"?1 ofthe principlesof democracy
glutting the magistrates' courts
with work*. It is being invoked
by all classes. Two days after the
law came into effect there were applications for separation at one
court in London from a baronet,
two kdights, two; solicitors, and
over a dozen small tradesmen. All
granted, it has been remarked
that there are more applications
for separation made by men than
by women. This may mean that
drunkenness is more prevalent
among women, or that they are
less disposed than their lords and
masters to take extreme measures.
All England, has been aroused by
tbe new movement against tbe
public house which is known as
semi teetotalism. - Its adherents
have pledged themselves to drink
only at the noonday and evening
meals. A few yeai? ago the anti-
treating movement, gained considerable headway, bnt has not become an important - factor. The
claim that the
principles they advocate has a scientific basis. They contend that in-
toxicante taken during or after
meals have much less injurious effects than if imbibed after one has
been fasting. Hence the semi-teetotalers have started a campaign
against drinking between meals,
which, of course, strikes directly
at the habit of drinking in a public
house. So widespread has the
movement become that an effort is
being made to plant it on this continent. . A Loudon paragraphs
has sarcastically suggested as their
motto these lines:
Brink to me only at thy meals,
And I'll respond at mine.

Don't expend your energies on developing in yourself a know-nothing-
doubt everything policy.
You may deceive yourself tor a
time, but you cannot deceive other
people".
It is not necessary for* you to spend
time and effort in telling others what
you do not know, and by argument
try to convince them that you do not
know it.
They probably know beiore you
realize it that you do not know what
you are trying to tell them you
do not know;
And it is just possible that t iey are
already aware that you do not know
even the little that you think vou
know,
It is every man's privilege to be
ignorant;
It is every man's privilege to develop or leave undeveloped such faculties as he has been given by
nature.
Every human being has a physical,
mental and spiritual nature;
These natures can only be developed by exercise, and itis man's own
business which of the three he will
develop, or if he will develop all of
them,
He alone is responsible for their use
or non-use.
Without exercise the natures become dead: A man might he physi
cally strong, but mentally and spiritually weak, or he may be strong
mentally and physically but weak
spiritually, or strong spiritually but
mentally and physically weak.
If a man is not mentally strong he
cannot understand problems requiring
thought, and if he is not spiritually
strong he cannot know and understand'the things requiring luith.
But the simple fact that he does
not understand them is no reason for
him to declare they are not true;
Other people may not be so strong
as he mentally, nor so weak as he
spiritually.
And, I do not know, but I believe
it is just possible tor them to be
stronger than he both mentally and
spiritually.
■t-
It is a line thing when a man does
not know anything for him  to be
willing to say so.
But no man should think because
he does not know that other men cannot know.
For instance—
—Men-wilMell-you~that-the-Slocan-
can never recover from the depression existing, and they believe it;
But other men who know the resources of the camp, kuow that its
real progress has not yet begun, and
that it will produce millions in the
future where it has produced thousands in the past.
Men will tell you that NewDenver
is not destined to be a resort for tourists; that it will never amount to
much, and they believe that, too;
But other men who know what
tourists are looking tor, can see in
the surrounding gorges, ice fields,
weird canyons, lofty peaks, mountain
streams and majestic lake, features
that will some day set the tourist
world afire.
Richard Hardin' Davis and I'd be
ashamed to turn a real South American revolutionist away hungry. You
set down out here an' I'il fetch the
vittles."
A    CONSIDKKATE    l'AKSOS.
J. H. Stoddart, veteran actor and
star of "The Bonnie Brier Bush,"
company, recently celebrated his 76th
birthday, and the results were so
profitable that Harry Selby Fulton,
his business manager, has decided
that Stoddart shall give a series of
birthday parties all alon* the route,
says the New York Telegraph. Mr.
Stoddart has readily acquiesced in
the scheme on the condition that no
matter how many birthday celebrations there are his age shall remain
the same.
The citizens oi Woodstock, Ont.,
responded nobly to Mr. Stoddart's
original 76th anniversary. In the
company with him is Reuben Fax,
well remembered for his excellent
work with William Gillette and in
moments of recklessness Fax has admitted that earlier in his career he
occupied the position of fading tenor
in a prominent Woodstock church
choir. With the foresight that has
made him Kirke La Shelle's chief
publicity promoter, Fulton called on
the pastor of the church in question
and informed him that Mr, Stoddart
would hold the first dress rehearsal
of his birthday anniversary on the
night ot the local engagement. Much
to Fulton's delight—and in explanation it must be recorded that Fulton
learned this through heresay—the
minister on the following Sunday
spoke feelingly of the aged Stoddart,
"a good Scotchman and a conscientious churchwarden," mentioned the
fact that "Brother Fax" was in the
company, and declared that for the
convenience of those who wished to
attend the theatre the regular prayer
meeting would be adjourned from
Wednesday until Thursday night.
