 n.  ���y'' '-Aa.-'S  - yyM  .' '- ~..<'&Tk-,_  ���A   *Cr,':,S'K*i  ���'!''   A  ' -[iii.  VOLUME  VII.  ews of tlie  mes  i  In the Mining Journal of London of  November 23, IMS. is:i comprehensive  article on tlie prospects of Uritisli.'.Columbia and tlie Isnrtli-Wtsl. A ftcr reference made to the iwiiiy changes that  have taken place in tlie Nortli-West  Territories of.Canada during lliu last  couple of years, tbe following is what  is said concerning British Columbia :  The probable eflofit upon Uritisli  Columbia of this great developmeutof  the Territories is ji question worthy of  consideration- It can hardly bo otherwise than beneficial.- The Province is  not and will never, lo any great extent,  be a country'bf agriculture, though in  particular districts its fertility "is jin-  surpossed ; it' will rather supply a  market for the products of the North-  West. With a nearer source of supply  and increased means of cnnmiuuicalion  the cost of living ought lo diminish.  The Territories should in turn'supply  a market, and a vulliable one, for the  Province ; indeed, the demand for timber for the construction of houses has  already had a marked effect on tho output of lumber from the const sawmills,  and iu no small degree accounts for the  rapidprogressmadeby Vancouver City  during the past year. Bub the influence of the rise of the sister terrilorv  will be more tir-roaching. The great  udustry of Jjiilish. Columbia is, and  ought still more to''bo, mining���her  great export, minerals. Hitherto sue.  cess in this direction lias been icturded  by two factors above all others���in  sufficiency of laborers, and consequently exorbitant wayo;, and, secondly,, instability ofCoveniLucnt. Up-'  ou the second of these inji-iious^ conditions the" fliHng up of the" North-  West can have buta vory-remote eii'ect,  but upoifthc former the effect should  be very considerable.- The rrovincc  has been, to a certain degree, isolated ;  the enormous length of tlie journey,'  its expense, ignorance of the country  ,-arid its conditions, exaggerated ideas  of the expense of living, have" all ,ol  them contributed to prevent any freo  movement of working iuc:i IVom Uir-  rope to British Columbia, despite the  high 'rate' of wagea.. prevail ing there,  while Asiatic labor, inpre.especially for  purposes of mining, is excluded by  rigidolaws.      Ayhen,Aimbh,ci*1:.ltho^  neighboring territories, soon no doubt  to be a sister province, or provinces,  contain'a large population, attracted  from'Europe and the United States by  every inducement which' the Govern-  can offer, there ���will undoubtedly be a  considerable overflow into lhe older  province. .'.The'climate.of lho North-  West is health ful. unci lolcnible, but is  far from being so gi>od as that from  across the nioutitiuus ; men tire of  farm life, and their statural course is to  ���the.-west;!''When it- is remembered  that the num ber of new settlors already  exceeds, in all probability, lhe whole  population of .'British Columbia,-, the  importance of any such ��� movement can De estimated uud it will  be no long time before it will become  an appreciable gain 1o the province.  Tho second grand disadvantage  which has retarded British Coltiiiibian  enterprise-has been the ���unstable Government. Though rigidly divided into  Liberals and v'Conservatives fur .'the  purposes of   Dominion   polities,   ivud  "represented at Ottawa .by slaiinch par'y  representatives, Ilio. ���jieople of the  Province have'until lately ejected Uieir  own  ProvincialLegLslature   0:1  non:  ���party lines. The theory was''excellent": let the best .111011 guide-"ihe.  affairs of "'the'''country apart from 'Tiiere.  party strife,'but iii'-pritelioj the: 'reiiilt  was little less than ife-.istrous.- Unbound by any. ���spk'it of party. 'ovaIty,  and having no fundamental difFerence*;  or policy, neither Government irfTrOp-  If the Government found itself in danger of an adverse vote, a little persuasion or the adoption of some measure pleasing to a political locality,  would win over a vote or two, sufficient in so small a House to give a  precarious majority. Thus weak governments staggered on, unable to pass  really useful measures, "and driven to  pass questionable ones'at the demand'  of some small faction. Industry was  hampered and capital driven from the  country. The general election has  changed this system ; party lines have  been adopted, and for the future there  is every likelihood that governments  will be more stable and policies less  vague. The situation bf. the Province  is therefore a hopeful one, and the effect of the renewed confidence is seen  iu expanding industries, a rise in land  values iu the principal cities, and. a  more hopeful feeling-iu raining circles.  There is every reason to believe that  the Far West will participate, more  and more, in the steady advance of  Canadian prosperity.

There has been seme interest manifested in municipal -milters during the week. It was believed that  .inasmuch as the old mayor and council had not done  anything for which they could be severely censured,  it might be just as well to let thetn. all go back by acclamation. Particularly was this-the case with regard to Mayor Rose. It is generally conceded that,  he lias been an economical mayor, and as tbe'office  bas cost him something both in time and. money; it  was thought tbat he at least should have a chance to  play even. This was the opinion of a large number*  ofthe electors.    However, it is not to be.  Aid. John Irving has aspirations, and nothing,  short of the mayor's chair will satisfy his -vaulting  ambition. His claim on tbe office is that he has-  s erved the city three years in the capacity of alderman,.and that this' alone entitles him to the exalted  office of mayor.  It was Aid. John Hamilton's idea  that the present  mayor and council should  be  returned unopposed/  but when Aid. Irving announced himself as a candidate for mayor, tbe alderman from the west ward felt  if the office was lo go by seniority of service in the.  7  city council he should have something to say''about  it. Therefore, Aid. Hamilton has offered himself-for  the .mayor's chair.  Aid. ' Hamilton has represented the West ward for  several.years at tbe council board, and the fact that his  election was practically conceded every year as soon  as he announced himself, is the best kind of evidence  that he has been a faithful representative. If ex-"'  perietice and faith ful ^service count for anything.-Jolif.  Hamilton should be elected. But the men best qualified to hold office are not always elected in Nelson.  There are several new m en out for aldermen. As  the list is not yet complete, it would be a little premature to make selections, or enumerate the qualifications of the various candidates.  Just, now there is con siderable discussion in the  east as to how far a man who makes long prayers can  be trusted. The controversy ' has arisen over the  smash-up oi a saving's loan company, wh'ch took the  savings'of many   poor   people, promising a higher  rate~ol ~interes"t~~tbau could^b^^bf^in^d^Ise^here;  The manipulator of the company is a'man who is  well known in connection with religious work in the  city in which the company carried on business.  He went to chapel,'sang praises, and made long  prayers ; he subscribed to every fnnd for the propagation of sanctimony ; he had the manner of one whose  piety overspread all things, and even kept him at devotion while his dinner spoiled. He actually went  the length, it is said, of opening business meetings  with, prayer, as it were to blunt lhe edge of his roguery.  e nds lived a life of luxury and professed the most  :c onsistent "'piety, while he was swindling right aud  left, and perpetrating one- fraud quickly on the head  of another. In this complex civilization there is  great scope for smart scoundrels ; there are many disreputable fellows iu our business world who .live by  cheating tbe'unwary, and so nearly allied are fraud  and honesty in seme phases of business that it is  hard indeed to get them under tbe heavy hand of  the law.  All the hotels gave extra dhmere yesterday.  The Terpslchorean Club held another  pleasant dance at the Open House last  evening.  A Kansas girl attending Vassar College sends the  Journal the following excerpt from what the students  of that institution call ''The Domestic Euclid."  Definitions :  . 1.

If there be two boarders on the same floor, and  the amount of side bf one be equal to the amount of  side of the other, and the wrangle, between the one  bcarder and the landlady be equal to the wrangle be-  -tween the landlady and the other boarder, then shall  'the weekly bills of the,two boarders be equal. For if  not,-let one bill be the greater, then the other bill is  lessjthan it might have been, which j-1 absurd.  The fire and life insurance of the late  T. M. Ward has been;taken over by T.  G. Proctor.  Everything will be in readiness in a  few days, to install the machinery in  the new foundry.  ���Rev. Mark G. Pearse, the celebrated  English orator and lecturer, will visit  the coast cities shortly.  Wholesale men of Nelson report that  business has never been better than at  the present time.  il  -.- il  The machinery for the new shingle'  mill is now on the ground, and will be  placed in position as soon as the building Is completed.  t Now the Provincial Mining Association needs money. In tbis respect the  Association is not alone.  It is reported thatvG. H, Barnbart  will resume his old position of superintendent of tne Ymir mine.  John Burns has secured the contract  for the erection of a building for tho  Hall Mines smelter similar to the one  recently destroyed bv fire.   -  *- j*1  ���rP-V'ji  ''f"7_  !'

If not he will build  across the lino.  Thus did he impose on those who will trust any  man if he only interlard his speech with texts and  devout aspirations. They trusted him as a man of  exemplary lighteousness, merely because he stood in  the market place, and called all to mark the amplitude of his piety. They gave their money by the  ������million .into'his care ; they took their poor savings  irom safe places and put them in his hands, betanse,  they said, he is a good man.  Of the many things for which the citizens of Nelson, have .reason to congratulate themselves., perhaps the greatest is tbe method by which  the Daily News observed the New Year. Yesterday  morning's issue ofthatpaper was one ofthe best productions of the character ever issued in British Columbia. It certainly will.dp a great deal in the'way*'of  making known the,resources of the interior, and we  hope those who will benefit most by this, haye seen  to it that the enterprising publisher of the News has  not losl anything by his undertaking.  Monday, January 11, the Olympia Opera company  begins a six nights' engagement at the Opera House.  This organization comes to Nelson well recommended,  but it is doubtful if there will be much 'improvement  on the productions given by the local operatic company.

While no particulars as to the results  ofthe 'Provincial High School examinations are yet available for publica-  tjpn, sufficient is known in a general  way to declare tbat the results will  show raiher a remarkable variation of  comparisons throughout the Province.  Superintendent.Robinson, oi the Education Dejurt.i.e..t, the other day,informed a Colonist representative, lhat  Victoria stood exceptionally high, in  fact, it could hardly be better. On the  other hand, he regretted to say, Vancouver was exceptionally bad; in fact,  it could hardly be ranch worse. Another point worth noto is that the city  of Nelson schools have attained the  highest percentage of any schools in  Hie Province.  A convention of  the Conservative  partyof British Columbia is to be held  at Victoria during the   first week of  February, 1904.    The decision to call  this convention was reached at a meeting  held in Vancouver Monthly of a  quorum of the executive  of the Provincial      Conservative      AsswL-ition.  Hon. R. F.

But when  a brother accepts this most useful office  ���lie is looked upon as a "makeshift," anil  as ' a person undesirable and incompetent. Therefore, a mother takes pains  oto secure for her daughter the companionship of almosifc, anyono of her own  sex rather than a brother:  This is a gross injustice  to brothers. '  "Any girl who has been chaperoned by her j  brother will tell you that he' is the best |  possible person for tlie office.   Any man i  who has enjoyed the society of a young j  ���lady   under   the   chaperonnge    of    her _  brother will say the same.   Brothers who.1  have acted as chaperons say that a man  ���takes to the work quite naturally and  with plenty of confidence.    In  addition  ���to thia evidence, it is common knowledge:  ^that^-tliea-c-haperoii^disiikfis^hei^ofUeej-'-isy  disliked by  the young lady she chapel \  ous, and by the men who  would know j  the young lady. _ j  Ainan is liked best'as a cliapcron because he is broad-minded and generous.'  He does not want to lead his sister into  the qiQiit  crowded  parts of the flower-  show  and   talk inanities  to   old  bores; \  he doesn't reprove her if-she dares  to  say something funny.    He doesn't pre-'  servo  a   countenance  of prim   severity,!  and.pose as  the goddess  of��� propriety.\  ��� Neither .does he take his sister into tho '  company   of   undesirable   men,   aa  lady  chaperons often do; he gives such per-!  sons a  wide  berth, and introduces  his  little sister only to tliosc men who are  .  good, honest, whole-hearted fellows.  -      The   brother   chaperon   can   give    his  sister much advice that will ha of more  use   to  her  than  etiquette  books.    Ho  can point  out  the  men  she  should not  know, and ho can unhesitatingly expose  /their worthlesisness.    He can  tell  her u  dozen littlo things that stamp the good  ���inan as a good man, and a dozen others  that ma,rk the bad one for what he is.  There is no fear of a brother leading  Ws sister into indiscretions. That is tlie  last thing ho would do. He takes at the  same time a lively interest in a love affair, and docs'his best to leave the young  couple alone together for five minutes at  intervals.  The .brother chaperon is rare, because  the only one available is he who has ft  greater fondness for his own sister than  somebody else's.���"Modern Society."  The Female Barber.

"An  exemption from Payne," was the reply.  James Cobb tell3 a curious story of a  lady, a sister of Owen Tudor, who, like  Henry VIII., was greatly given to marrying, and did not die until she had been  led seven times to the altar. When, she  was following her fourth husband to the  jravc, the gentleman behind whom she  rode on horseback ventured to urge his  suit. "Unhappily," said the dame, "thou  art too late,, seeing that I am plighted  already; yet do not lose heart, for,  should it fall out that I have again to  perform this melancholy^office, I will  bear thee in mind."

"H,  Uncle Robert, d!" he urged, referring to  iho next letter of the signature. The  old man's eyes snapped. "Dee!" he  growled. "I'll dee when I'm ready, ye  avaricious wretch!"  'A well-known profeasor, .having boarded  a few weeks with a farmer who was in  the habit of taking a few summer guest:-  into his house to help pay the rent, decided to spend his vacation there again  this yeaT.
