"lack of winter quarters," or—we
will be too busy taking out ore.

SIT.VKIt-I.KAI>   ASSOCIATION.
A meeting of the Provincial Silver-Lead Association was held in
Sandon Tuesday evening. It wns
well attended aud considerable
business of importance was transacted. A committee was appointed to interview Commissioner
Parmalee of the Dominion government, now at Nelson for the purpose of perfecting plans for the payment of the lead bonus recently
granted by the Ottawa government,
by the aid of which committee the
Commissioner will be better able to
adopt a plan of settlement.
The following revolutions were
adopted:
Resolved, that this Association
has heard with regret statements
recently made in the Provincial
assembly by the honorable member
from the Slocan electoral district,
to the effect that the lead bonus
granted by the Dominion government has produced no improvement
in this district. This statement is
directly contrary to the facts, as
much work now in progress and
contemplation would not now be
going on and be in prospect but for
the bonus. No payments have as
yet been received on account ofthe
bonus, wliich, when paid, will recoup many mines for expenditures
that would not otherwise have been
-uiiflertaken—and-iHs~our—opiniorr
that many mines now working and
employing laborers would not be
working had the bonus not been
granted.
Resolved, that the resolutions
recently passed by the associated
board of trade at Rossland, asking
for government aid to the zinc industry in British Columbia did not
emanate from this association, as we
consider it premature. We would
ask the associated boards of trade
to take action in accordance with
the wishes of those parties most
interested.
The ore shipments from the Slocan this year will hardly run over
15,51)0 tens. This is Icsh than half
what tho shipments were for last
year, and the lowest production in
the history of the camp. Without
going into an exhaustive discussion
of tho whys ami wherefores of the
great falling nit, it is apparent to
all that a strong game is being
played by the operators. Just
what the outcome will be it is hard
to say, but this is certain that the
government aid by bonus has not
increased tho output. Perhaps when
the Silver-Lead Association getH its
organizaten in proper working trim
under the new pooling scheme,
there will be a different story to
tell of the Slocan. But this la -t
should not lw lost sight of, that any
amount of organization and govern-
ui »iit aid cannot Iwtter conditions
while the ore is allowed to stey in
the ground. What the Slocan
needs more than anything else is
more inining and less looking for
aid and whining ahout adverse condition".

CANADA   TOASTKD.
Dickens in one of Iub erudite
novels brings in a big, lusty and
backward boy, and after sizing him
up, makes the remark: "If you
find a good boy who seems to have
no ambition or get up, aud fails to
show his spirit, kick him! kick
him!  Kick him till he's proud."
The cap seems to fit our young
Dominion. Johnny Canuck has
had his share of kicks, the last the
most unkindest cut of all, and
Uncle Sam rolls the sweet morsel
under his tongue and licks his
chops. In his new-born pride of
power and increasing advantages
be looks round for further avenues
of aggrandisement, and. chuckling
to himself, puts forward an airline
claim to a foothold on the fisheries
of Hudson's Bay, even going the
length of proposing annexation, or,
as one writer puts it, that "Uncle
Sam should now set himself to
court the Lady of the Snows and
make her his bride."
Our lady rises in her beauty and
dignity and repels the suggestion.
In the flush of her sweet temper
she tells Uncle Sam that Bro. Jonathan is a great, big, greedy grafter,
a chip off the old block, who
wouldn't be content if he owned
the whole world, unless he had a
patch on the outside for potatoes.
—Turning~to~^ohmTy~Brin siic
gives him a piece of her mind also,
and tells him he isn't half smart to
let Uncle Sam run a bluff on him;
and that he listens too much to the
Little Eaglanders. the labor unions,
the free trade tyrants, and t,iat
other set of doughty duffers as
bluntly and deftly dubbed by Kipling.
"Howsomevcr and nevertheless,
when done and said all," tho little
unpleasantness is soon dispelled,
and Our Lady of the Snows ami
the Sunshine resumes her good
nature and comforts herself with
tho brotherly remark: "It's never
lost what a friend gets," and cons
over the ojd refrain, "My son's my
son till ho gets a wife, but my
daughter's my daughter all her
life." Rousing from her reverie,
sho declares "I'll be mistress in
my ain house," and taking a cinch
on her girdle and gathering her
skirts with a swift swipe of her
lilly-white hand, displaying her
dainty ankle, she wakes Johnny
Canuck, with a resilient nnd ladylike kick, and tells him to wake up
and get a move on; to doff his old
stocking night cap, his muffled
flannels of swaddling clothes, his
shoe-packs and snowshoes, to dress
up and take his place in the procession of nations.

AS   TO   A   ZINC   ItoNIIS.
The resolution passed by the
Provincial Silver-Lead Association
at its Sandon meeting Tuesday
evening, relating to the action of
the Associated Board of Trade, is
timely and suggestive. Without
particularizing, this body of well-
wishers has frequently stepped out
of its jurisdiction to denial,d action
on mntters that these boards know
little or nothing about.
In the case at issue, the promoter ofthe zinc smelter at Kaslo,
asks the government for a bonus of
$500,000 a year tin zinc spelter
made in Canada, the bonus to go to
the smelter company now organizing. In other words, the smelter
company asks the (loveniinent to
pay for the wmeltcvV erection and
operation and the company will
take the proceeds.
Itis well   for   the   Silver-Lead
Association to steer clear  of  this

The following were chosen: Messrs.
Cavanaugh, Gomm, Hall, McLachlan, Grimmett, Ritchie, Fallows

the club numbers about 45. The

Fifteen men came down the hill
from the Payne on Saturday. They
objected to the board provided at
the boarding house. The trouble
was afterward taken up by the
Union and the mine management
and an amicable settlement arrived
at, and all desiring have

on August 1, 1875, and, therefore,

Many y>ars ago the writer visited the Hawaiian islands. In making a trip around one of the smaller
islands we came one day upon a
veritable bit of Eden. In the background were tilte mountains, reaching to the ylouds; about us a half-

ing of verdure, shadowed by cocoa-
nut palms; before us the quiet waters of the lagoon, with the white
line of the barrier reef, and beyond
that the indigo sea rising to the horizon. We sat down in the shade
to rest and a native came out to
interview us. He was a perfect
specimen of uncivilized man. In

open countenance, and an inch-wide

"For what?"
'To earn money."

The plan contemplated by the
company involves the driving of a
tunnel through which trains could
be taken from the level of the
Boundary creek valley, loaded nt
the ledges of the mine by mechanical means such as are now employed at the the surface and drawn
practically on the level to the treatment work;. The portal of the
tunnel is expected to be at a point
on Boundary creek a short distance
above Greenwood. The ore bodies

There came a tiiw when the slave-
holding states seceded from the
union, and to raise money needed
to force them back it became necessary to place heavy duties on imports. Then the American people
learned the value of protection.
There had been plenty of immigration before, when the starving farmhands of Ireland and Germany came
to the United States to do the rough
work, but when the Morril tariff
came into effect the character of the
immigration changed, and instead
of laborers the skilled workmen of
Euro] e hastened to our shore*-.
Then the American peoplo learned
the value of a protective tariff. Instead of sending their money to be
spent in the marts of Europe in exchange for manufactured articles,
they found that the best skill of
Europe eagerly  sought the higi.er
closed early, but because the firm
had no further use for him.
. "Mamma," he explained, "somebody called up the man on the telephone, and he told me to say he
was out. Of course, I could not
think of doing such a thing, and he
discharged me on the spot."
Two weeks later he obtained another situation, and went forth a-
gain on the following morning. A-
gain he returned quite early.
"My employer," he said, "was
a very profane person. I spoke to
him about it gently and kindly
offered to send him some tracts. I
cannot repeat the words he used,
but he discharged me."
His next job lasted two days.
"I discovered," he explained on
this occasion, "that their goods
were frightfully misrepresented. Of
course I could not think of remaining in such a place."
To make a sad story short, he
lost five jobs in two months. His
father does not know just what to
do about it. He cannot bring himself to advise the boy to conform to
the iniquity of the times, and maybe the boy wouldn't, anyhow. The
old man did think of advertising:
Wanted—By a conscientious boy, an employer:

strict Integrity.   Address, statins particulars, X.
But it is not likely that he will
do this. The only conclusion that
the anxious parent has yet been
able to reach is that the reason
why those whom the gods love die
young is that it is the only way to
keep them from spoiling.—William
E. McKenna, in Puck.

Protection made all the difference.
It created employment at profitable
wages for the American' workman,
and it brought the most skilled artificers in the world to share in the
comforts ofthe American workman.
That is partly why the American
people believe iu protection, anil
why the suggestion of free-trade is
sufficient to defeat any party that
advocates it.—Ex.

THE LEDGE Eleventh Year
THE LEDGE, NEW DENVER, B.C., DECEMBER 17   1903.
Picture on tbe Cabin Door
One bad season had followed
another, and now there was destitution all through the Naragansett
country. The few traders who
were fortunate enough to have any
goods left doubled and trebled their
prices, and even then they would
take nothing but good standard
coin in exchange. They refused
even to look at the depreciated
Rhode Island currency.
A. few more of the more wealthy
landowners sent to Plymouth and
Boston and even to far-away Nieu
Amsterdam and Philadelphia for
supplies. But the poor settlers
and the new arrivals from the
Northern colonies could not do
this. They had to depend on the
chase and such scanty harvest as
they were able to glean from their
newly cleared fields. As the winter came on some of them became
discouraged and drifted back to
Plymouth and Boston.
But for the most part they were
strong, hopeful men having faith
in the new country, and willing to
endure hardships and privations
until they could fight their way to
competence.
Jacob Holduess had built his
cabin in a small clearing overlooking the Saugatucket river. He was
a watchmaker by profession, and
had brought the tools of hiB craft
with him, but finding them useless
in this new country, he had put
them away and tried to accustom
his hands to the gtfn and plow instead.
During the summer and fall the
family had not lacked for food.
There were fruit and game in the
woods, and fish in the streams; and
by going to the Pettaquamscott
river, a few miles away, they could
obtain crabs and other shellfish.
Aud before cold weather set in
Holdness had the foresight to catch
and salt down half a barrel of
mackerel.
His harvest had uot been very
successful this first year. A few
bushels of corn and a basket or two
of vegetables, and that was all.
But the great misfortune came
when ln3 was caught under one of
his own falling trees and crushed
to the earth. He was unconscious
when they found him, and weak
from the loss of blood; but a^ few
■~_dffp"Tn"ifCdl5!imml™tiiat although'
his injuries were very severe they
were not likely to prove fatal. Still
it would be many months befor* he
could do any more labor.
There was only 14-year-old John
now to look after the outside work
and provide for the family's needs.
Mrs. Holdness was almost an invalid, and the two twins, Peggy
aud Joan, were not yet 8. The
nearest neighbor was three miles
away, and in nearly as bail a plight
as themselves. There was no store
or trading post in the vicinity, and
even the occasional barter with the
Indians was cut off, for the red
men were still smarting under the
sense of injury which they fancied
the whites had put upon them, and
several tribes had already sent in
runners with ominous messages of
arrows and snake skins.
John Holdness was a pioneer
boy, however, and did not shrink
from the prospeet before him. He
had grown accustomed to hardships and difficulties, and rather
glorified in overcoming them.
Every day now, except when the
storms were unusually severe, he
was in tne woods felling trees or
hunting. A small deer and several
wild turkeys were added to the
provisions, and then the ainmuni
tion gave out.
Jacob Holdnesfi had intended to
make a late trip to one of the
northern trading posts after powder and shot and salt, but now
John would have to undertake the
journey. Carefully hoarded in the
bottom of the strong box was a
single gold coin, all that was left of
the £100 which had accompanied
him across the sea. It would not
go far in provisons, but it would
buy a little powder and shot, and
perhaps some salt. The powder
and shot were absolute necessities,
and the salt they regarded as
scarcely less so.
Johu was given the coin, with
mapy admonitions regarding its
safety and careful expenditure. It
would take three days for him to
go and return, but he had been
over the route with his father and
had little fear of being lost. After
leaving the valley he would strike
the old Pequot trail, and that would
lead him almost to his distillation.
It was a clear, crisp December
day when he started out; icicles
glistened on the trees, and underfoot the snow was packed firm and
solid. But on the the third day
a fierce storm set in from the northeast. In the afternoon it grew bitterly cold, and Mrs. Holduess began to make frequent trips to the
door. Night came early, but the
storm seemed to increase with the
darkness. The wind shrieked
through the trees and around the
cabin, and fine soft fingers of snow
sifted through the closed^utters,
Mrs. Hold-
au3 oil paper windows,
ness piled more wood upon the fire
and the light flared up aud danced
into every part of the little room.
It revealed a few shelves in one of
the opposite corners, and the family dishes of pewter and wood—it
made wierd shadows of ths spinning wheel and caused them to
waver up and down the rough background of the cab.n walls. Some
of it even flashed through the open
door of the small innei\rooin, and
rested on the bed where Jacob
Holdness lay, anxiously   listening
for the sound of his boy's footsteps.
But only the wind came roaring
and shrieking about the cabin, and
at last the invalid grew weary and
fell asteep. The twins played before the fire until their eyes grew
heavy and dull, and then they
climbed up the short ladder to the
bed in the loft.
But Mrs. Holdness could not
sleep. Her boy was somewhere out
in the storm, and he was cold and
hungry. She piled more wood on
the fire, and put water in the big
iron kettle to heat. Then she refilled the little soup kettle and
hung it on the crane over the fire.
There was corn bread left from
supper, but John preferred it
warm, so she mixed more dough
and placed it on the bread board
and set it before the fire to bake.
Drearily the hours passed away,
and the noise of the storm was
broken only by the occasional howl
of wandering wolves. At last she
drew out her spinning wheel aud
began to spin.
It was near midnight when she
heard the door shake as though
something had fallen against it. On
opening it quickly she found John
upon his kees reaching for the
atch, and in his arms, half held
and half dragged, was the form of
a young Indian girl.
By a strong effort he struggled to
his feet and drew the girl into the
middle of the room. Then he sank
back utterly exhausted upon the
floor.
"I'll— be all right in a minute,
mother," he gasped. "I'm tired
out, that's all. "It was awful,"
shudderingly. "I never expected
to see home—again."
His mother brought him a disk
of warm soup and began to remove
his shoes aud stockings.
"Look after the girl first," he expostulated. "She needs it more'n
me. I found her on the 'trail.'
She was lost and had fallen in the
snow. She became unwouscious
while I was bringin' her. ,1
couldn't go more'n a rod or two
without stopping to rest. I've been
since dark comin' from Tower
Hill."
"Why didn't you leave her?"
piped a shrill voice from overhead.
John looked up quickly. Peggy's
eyes were staring at Jinn
through the trap door.
"Oh, I couldn't do that, Peggy,"
he said,   rebukingly.      "I  never
wnlisouginrof "sucinrtiTingr ? ~~
"I'd 'a' left her," declared the
child, stoutly. "Injunu ' killed
Uncle Tom an' stole our doggie.
I wouldn't have nothin' to do with
ished earnestly; niebbe he do much
good. Indian read him and know
paleface Wachita's friend."
John had brought back with him
a small quantity of powder and
shot. He had not been able to obtain any salt. That was almost as
scarce as gold in the colonies just
now.
But as the weeks went by he
found little use for amunition.
Snow fell almost continuously, and
the runs and trails became nearly
impossible both for game and hunter. He could not go so far as
usual and was only able to bring in
a bird or rabbit at rare intervals.
Gradually the small sto*ck of provisons disappeared, and before
winter was half over actual starvation was staring them in the face.
Every morning John struggled
through tbe snow to Pettaquam-
scutt river or back toward Wolf
Rocks, or the Great Pond; and
every night, as a rule he struggled
home weary and hungry and
empty-handed.
And day by day the color faded
from the cheeks of Peggy and Joan,
and the languid steps of Mrs.
Holduess givw more slow and
feeble. Jacob Holdness saw it all
from his bed in the little inner
room; but he could do nothing, and
he turned his face to the wall and
groaned,
At lenth they were reduced to
such roots as could be gathered in
the woods, and a small allowance
of parched corn. And then as a
last resort, John went to some of
the neighbors, but they were poor
themselves and could offer little
assistance.
One day, while he was away on
his weary search for food, there
came a sudden knock on the door.
Mrs. Holdness opened it and started back in dismay.- n Two Indian
warriors stood befpre her. But almost at the same instant a little
figure pushed between them and
the well known voice of Wachita
asked!
' 'How all?    Boy chief home?''
"No," answered Mrs. Holdness;
"he is out huntin'.     It's  been  a
hard, hard winter."
"Yes, me know. Hard winter
all round. Me come sooner, but
been far away, long, big river.
Dis my fader, Panther Leap,"
touching the larger of the two Indians, who gravely took Mrs.
Holdness'   treLniiliug_,Jmu^_jind
"Yes, I know," acquiesced Mrs.
Holduess sadly, "but there is no
way to get them. Game seems to
have left the woods."
Heavy footsteps crunched the
snow outside, and Panter Leap
.^talked in and dropped the carcass
of a small deer upon the floor.
Then he stood aside while his son
advanced and lowere I a heavy
basket of corn from his shoulders.
Three times did they go out and
return; then they took a position
near the door and waited.
Wachita raised' Mrs. Holduess'
hand and rubbed it softly against
her face.
"Now, eat, eat—berry much—
an' get strong," she admonished.
"Tell boy chief Wachita no forget."
Tears were a mist before Mrs.
Holdness' eyes, 'and she could
scarcely see the girl as she joined
her father and brother. Another
moment and she heard their footsteps moving swiftly away toward
the forest.
In October tlie production of
Lake Superior copper mines was
greater than in September, despite
the fact that an accident at the
Red Jacket shaft hampered work
there, reducing the output,, of the
Calumet and Hecla at least 200,-
000 pounds. The average price
paid during tlie month for Lake
copper was 13 cents. The production for September at 13 cents gives
the total valuation of §2,150,000.
For November it is confidently believed that a new record in pn -
duction will be made.
Further particulars regarding
the work of the Homestake company for the fiscal year ending June

Mrs. Holdness had been chafing
the Indian girl's hands. She now
rose and went after more of the
warm so«p.
"She's comin' to," in answer to
John's inquiring look. "I'll give
ker soiueting warm to drink an'
then put her to hed. I think she'll
be all right in a few days."
It was late the next morning before John awoke. When he went
down the ladder he found the Indian girl sitting by the lire. She
turned quickly as he approached.
"Me waitin' see you," she said,
gravely. -'Want t'ank for last
night. Not many do like you,
only great warriors. But you not
i know me?"
A strange look came into her face
as she rose alowly to her feet. John
shook hi* head.
"Mo Wachita, from Big Kiver
country. Panther Leap my fader."
Mrs. Holdiiess stinted and drew
the twin* closer to her. The girl
saw tho motion and her eyes
gleamed.
"Panther Lean kill, burn destroy," Kite said, coldly. "Hate
Paleface. Mo, Wichita, only
daughter. what yon do now?
Better lef in snow," to John.
Mr*. Holdnea*' hesitation wa*
hut momentary. Placing her hand
upuu the girl's shoulder she gently
forced her Iwk to her sent.
"You are sick and tired," she
said, soothingly. "Vou mustn't
think of leaviir here today, You
mu'i tn lilamt' for what vour father
doe*."
The gleaming eye* did nut leuve
her fare.
"An' what you do when me get
well?"
"Why.   scud   you    home,    of,
eoui>e," indignantly.   "You don't
suppose we'd harm you on account;
of Homebody ehe, do you?" j
A softer look came into the girl'*

raised it to his forehead. "Dis

ceremony was calmly repeated.
"Now, go bring." The two Indians turned and disappeared
around the cabin. Wachita followed Mrs. Holdness inside.
Peggy and Joan were sitting listlessly before the fire. Jacob
Holdness was moving slowly across
the floor on a pair of crutches.
Wachita looked at them keenly.
"Look berry bad," she said;
"need meat, broth—many things
to eat."

There is a good story being told
at present about a Berks county
pastor who recently made a trip to
this city, and who included the
Philadelphia hospital in the list of
interesting places visited while
here, says the Philadelphia Telegraph. When he reached the insane department of the institute he
begau a conversation with one of
the patients, a rather gentlemanly
appearing man of middle age, and,
as it is the custom to coincide with
whatever assertions unfortunates
of this class may make, the good
clergyman, of course did not ruffle
him in any particular during the
interval their talk lasted.
"Don't you think it dreadful,"
said the patient, that Senator Quay
should have been so murderously
sand-bagged by that insane division
worker, just as he was about to
vote on election day?"
"Yes," replied the clergyman,
"it was indeed regretable."
"And ex-President Cleveland,
have they found the crazy anarchist
who stabbed him at the Chamber of
Commerce banquet the other
night?"
"I believe they have," responded
the now somewhat startled minister.
"And Steel KingSchwaub, has he
recovered from the injuries lie sustained by being thrown from the
top of Mount Blanc by that demented guide?"
"At last accounts I believe he
('was progressing favorably toward
recovery," answered the divine
meekly. o
The lunatic- stopped atthispoiut,
and looking the molder of religious
belief squarely in the eye, asked:
"You're a minister, aren't you,
and know the Bible through and
through?"
"Yes,", answered the visitor.
"Well," said the "detained"
one, grinning sardonically as he
threw over his head the fragments
of a newspaper he had been engaged
in tearing, "all I've got-to say is
that you've got Ananias beaten a
hundred miles. You'ie about the
 liar in this country."

■It is related that dur'ng one of his
busy reception hours, when PreHident
Lincoln was talking first to one and
then to another of the many who filled
the. room iu the White House, a gentleman aske.d if any news had been received of John Morgan, whose Confederate cavaliy had  been  raiding Ohio
and Kentucky. "We'll catch John
sotneofthe.se days," replied Lincoln;
"I admire him, for he is a bold operator.
He always goes after the mail trains,
in order "to get information from Washington. On his last raid he opened
some mail bags and took possession of
the official correspondence One letter
was from the war department to a lieutenant in Grant's army: it contained a
captain's commission for him Right
under the signature of A. Lincoln the
audacious Morgan wrote, 'Approved,
John Morgan,' and sent the commission
on its way. So there is one officer in
our army whose commission bears mv
signature, with the approval of that
dare-devil rebel raider."
