Proclaims   Peace   and   Good-
Will to the Whites.
OVER  FIFTY YEARS AGO
Delivered   at   Sault    Ste,    Marie,
Ontario, on the Conclusion
of a Treaty.
Looking over some old documents a few days ago, Mr. Arthur
Burwash, of Arnprior, Ontario,
found a copy of a speech delivered
by an Indian chief at a treaty concluded at Sault Ste. Marie, September 5th, 1850. The red man's
oration, translated by T. \V. Keating, runs as  follows :
" Father, I take you by the hand
in token of friendship and regard.
" Father, before I answer what
has fallen from your mouth, let me
say a few wards about myself. See
my changed ■■'• appearance, see how
long sickness has weakened my
frame, and do not wonder if I reply
briefly to the words of our great
mother, which she has this .day
spoken through your lips.
" Father, it  is   not   long   since
your wise men (priests) have come
among the Indians to  bring them
t h eTj no\\ ledge of *t 11 e~w li ffe."" ID a r k" -
ness Was around us, we were   blind
and could riot see : now the rays of
o
light   are   coming   faintly   to   our
8ight.
"Father, there is a Great Being
above us vvho niado all—the earth
we stand upon, tho waters which
bear tho red man's canoe, tho trees
which grow around them.
" Father, these trees are many.
but there is one which far surpasses
the others, one known alike to iho
red man and tho whito—tho fine.
" Father, that tree will lust forever. Ita roots strike deep into tlio
earth, its branches spread fur anil
wide, its leaves are many ; it cannot die ; its fibres cany to it the
nourishment which gives it strength
nd power. j
" Father, so is our great mother
tho root whioh |»ivi..s fond to all.
Many as are tho branches which
shoot from tho parent stem, many
as aro t..cleaves which envoi' thorn,
Bho ruloa over all,she gives life ami
tmpport to all,
11 Father, what I say cmues from
my lumrt. From tho days of early
infancy,whon I first learnt of our
groat mother iiotosh tho vast salt
lake, until thu present day, I huvo
lovod, I have funred, I havo honored tho Quoon, and until tho heart
which now bouts but foobly in my
breast shall havo ceased its pulsations, I shall nellhor change nor
forgot.
" Fathor, it, may bo that ore long
ono of those leaves may fall from
tho paront vino. Tho timo cannot
bo remote, but what is Iho dropping of a fading leaf from the many
whioh that fruitful stom Hiipports ?
It fullH and is forgotten.
"Father, 1 never nay thai, which
in not. I nover hide my thoughts
in my breast, and imw hear me
when I Hay that my fenlingH, my
actions, my heart,, shall remain as
they have ever been ■•■-devoted ti,
the Queen. And until the day
when death shall strike me I will
follow in the path which hor lirsl
men shall point out, that which
our great mother wit-lio-i nn to lead.
"Father, I have heard your
words ; they have ninde mo glad ;
und now ntoiioo in tho ni|nioof my
chief?, my warriors, rny women
and my children, I consent. As
our great mother wills it, so it
shall be.
" Father, when the man with the
small flags first came amongst us,
when the seeker after metal was
seen upon our lands, I looked at
them hut said nothing. I heard
many things, but did not allow
them to enter my ears ; I closed
them lest they might be filled with
what is foolish.
" Father, this day for the first
time I have listened. What I have
heard has sunk deep into my heart
and there it shall remain.
" Father, I speak not for myself
alone, other chiefs speak through
me. They as well as myself will
not go contrary to the wishes of our
great mother.
"Father, my strength is fast
leaving me ; I cannot say much
more. The money you offer we are
willing to accept ; let my people
have half ; with the other do as you
will as you think right.
"Father, to-morrow I shall again
address you ; but mind that all we
do must be written down as by the
white, mind that the treaty must
be twice on the strong paper which
can never break, which will prevent
the words of this day from being
forgotten.
" Father, our great father shall
keep one, the other shall: go with
me, it shall be near me to the last,
and when Joseph Peau de Chat
dies none shall say he wronged his
tribe or neglected their rights. My
name shall live when I shall.be no
more."
jL.Xh&~tra.t)_sla_tor . notes that^.the
above speech was the first made at
the treaty by Peau de Chat. I He
was dying of consumption, and his
piediction about the "falling leaf"
was soon afterwards fulfilled.

GOOD TIMES AHEAD.
Tho Greenwood Times believes
the Boundary country is on the eve
of a wave of prosperity. The Times
says :
The V. V. & E. engineers are
making their final survey which
enters Greenwood on Gold street
and coming on to Silver street
somewhere near tho Auditorium,
and fioiri there on out towards
Eholt. All surveys lo both our
smelters are complete and all that
remains now lo he done is tho ^on-
struolion of the road, whioh will be
commenced very shortly.
Our high grade properties are attracting a great deal of attention in
tho mining world and no less than
two eminent engineers havo been
hero thin week looking up properties on tho Goldfinch, Providence,
Wlkhorn, Defiance, 10. P. U. and
Lancashire Hill. Thoro are several
good locutions on the siuno hill, all
having the same showing of small
veins from !J to IS inches wide, but
very high grade.
If the Crow's Nest strike had not
occurred Greenwood to-day would
bo in a fair way of really jjonuino
good times. Copper worth 15 cents
means a lot to Greenwood.
Tho Hoard of Trado those days is
doing a lot of good work and they
are not t-aying much about it
either. If their present plans do
not miscarry we will havo with us
hero in a week or ho one of tlio
largest, conventions over held in tho
district; every farmer,- boarding-
hoiit-'e keepers from every mine,
smelter, saw mills, hotels, etc,
within a radius of I'I miles will be
asked to attend to devise a plan of
establishing a twioo-a-wook market

Who Has Been   Selected by
the Conservatives.
LOOKS   LIKE   A   WINDER
Meeting:   of   the   Legislature  May
Develop Some Surprises
V—Party Lines.
Nelson Conservatives evideptly
believe in taking time hy the forelock. A petition has been circulated this week asking Mr. Robert
Scott Lennie, barrister, to offer
himself as candidate for Nelson in
the Conservative interest. The
requisition has been extensively
signed by representative Conservatives, and Mr. Lennie has decided
to make the run. He may now be
regarded as the Conservative candidate in the forthcoming contest.
Mr. Lennie is a young man, who on
account of lack'of time has not been
able to devote much time to politics in the past, but will now go
into the campaign with the intention of winning. He enjoys an enviable reputation in the community as an honorable, straigbfor-
ward young man, of a'tgreat* deal
more than average ability. As a
representative in the Legislature he
will command respect, and fhis
friends claim that he can be /depended upon to work hard in the
interests of his constituents. Mr.
Lennie's candidature is favorably
commented upon by the rank and
file of tbe Conservative party in
Nelson, although there may be a
little harmless antagonism on the
port of certain "soreheads," "Mugwumps" and "the disgruntled element," as the saying goes.
Now that the Conservatives have
selected their candidate, the Liberals are beginning to do a little
figuring on their own account. Several names aro mentioned in connection with the Liberal nomination, the most prominent being Dr.
Hull, Ed. FergUBon, S. S. Taylor
and John Hamilton. It i8 understood that the last three have expressed a disinclination to take a
chance, and it is quite likely Dr.
Hall will bo the man. With tt. S.
Lennie on tho Conservative Bide,
and Dr. Hall, ub hia Liberal oppo-
nont, tho content should bo an
eminently respectable ono. Tho
partieB hero aro believed to bo fairly
evenly dividod, and'it will bo anybody's light until tho last ballot iB
counted. Dr. Hall nnd Mr. Lennie should poll tho full Btrongth of
tho party vote.
liest possible moment, but perhaps
it is only natural that Col.-Prior
should consider his own interests
first. If he succeeds in getting a
majority,' hi will still be Premier,
while a successful appeal on party
lines would relegate him to a second place; and it'is possible that
he would not be recognized in tbe
construction of a party-line minis-
tay at all."' There is another matter that appears to-be lost sight of.
Supposing an appeal is made to the;
country on party. lines, and Mr.
ChaB. Wilson, is:'defeated and his
party successful, who will be
leader ?" Without" in any way reflecting on tbe selected leader of the
Conservative party, thiB paper still
holds to the view that the selection
was premature:i-; It-■• would have
been wiser to have left the matter
until after the election and let the
Conservatives returned to the
House, choose'their own ; leader.-
Mr. Charles Wilson may be
the beBt man,: but he is not
yet in the House. -However, matters are now drawing to the crucial
test, and a few weeks may throw
some new light on the situation.
■Prof. GoWwin Smith expresses
the opinion that a committee of the
Legislature', 'and not a judicial
commission, should deal with the
charges of bribery by the Ross government, hot only ia the Stratton
case, but ia: all its bearings. To
which the . Montreal Witness replies that a committee nominated
by the Ross;G6vernment could not
be expected to give an unbiased;

A committee of Liberals are said
to be discussing with Dr. Hall the
advisability of accepting nomination for the Legislature: and pressing upon him an early acceptance,
in view of the fact that the Conservative candidate is now in the
field.

SORRY FOR MACDONALD
Magnates Battle for Control of Coal
Property in Similkameen
Valley.
The Economist has frequently
referred to the great good that has
been done by the Salvation Army
throughout .the world. It is the
most practical religious organization in the world. An instance of
the good work that is being done by
the. army is furnished by Nelson
this week. For several years in
this city the life and soul of the
Salvation Army was a man who is
better known as "Mac" than any
other name. He contributed his
share towards making street meetings attractive and altogether Mac.
was equally as popular outside the
army as in it, but like many another good man he fell. But the
army did not loose track of him.
They watched and prayed with the
result that "Mac" is once more in
the .rariks, which is not only a
source of gratification to the Sal-
prgtionistp,. b'M to his matxyZSifends
as well.;
It seems that the story about
Ralph Smith aspiring to become
leader of Bristsh Columbia Liberals
was an error, for which Mr. Smith
was in no"Way responsible.

Weston and Herbert's vaudeville
show at the Opera House last evening, came in the way of a sensation
to the many   wbo   were   present.
And the  universal verdict is  that
- i
it wa^ far superior to any
vaudeville show yet seen in this
city. It would be difficult to select
the best act of the evening, the
whole being so acceptable. Weston
and Herbert gave a sketch that was
provokingly funny and brought
forth repeated outbursts of appliuisa.

"the young Morgan ofthe Pacific,"
and very properly so,—the Similkameen coal lands and Ashnola
smelter were acquired by a wealthy
corporation of Canadian capitalists, in which corporation Mr.
George Adam Shade, of Victoria, is
said to control a heavy interest.
Forces have been at work for some
time for the purpose of acquiring
the shares for American capitalists
by a syndicate surmised to have
been organized by James J. Hill, of
the Great Northern- Railway, who
recognizes the importance of such a
vast property in connection with
his Coast-Kootenay road. Mr.
Shade does not propose to allow
such a valuable asset to pass ;into
the hands of the grasping Yankee
capitalists, and has bent bis great
efforts and resources to frustrate
Jim Hill's move, and it is said that
so successfully has he laid his
schemes that when the company's
meeting is held in Nelson, on April
15th, he will show a, hand that will
fairly stagger the railway magnate.
George Adam Shade is a strong
personality, quiet and unassuming,
but very determined when he once
takes a line of action/ He has resided in Victoria fou many years
and has a town house as well as a
country residence and shooting preserve near Swan Lake, where he resides during the summer months
and entertains his many friends.

Nri.son, March  14th, 1903.  t  f  t  ,^N^  EDITORIAL COMMENT.  A few nmnth- ago we drew  attention  to   a  striking nsemblance in the platforms   of   the  three provincial parties and  confessed our in-  ,  ability to detect any features  in   any of them  which could be defined   as essentially Conservative cr Libeial.    This is really not  strange  when one considers the way in   which conver-  tions   are m.ide up   and   delegates  to   them  elected.    Nel oi.'-i method will do for purposes  of illustration as well as any other :    A meeting of C-. nservatiyes   was   called   and  over   a  hundred men appeared, a majority  to   choose  delegates, a minority to vote for delegates   already chosen.    It is safe  betting that   a  considerable, number of those at the meeting, probably   half  of   lhe   forty-nine   who attended  to vote ".he ticket," would   havo serious difficulty in explaining why they were  Conservatives rather than   Liberals.    It  is    notorious  that one member of that forty-nine is equally  familiar with Liberal meeting?,    It is   rather  disconcerting to   a   Contervalive  who  knows  and endorses his   party's   principles   to   have  them enunchuu! for hiin by a man   who, but  for his presence at a Conservative meeting, he  would have classified as a wild-eyed   po-julist  and to etc such a man sustained by iho vote of  "Conservatives,"  whose   only title  lo vo'e at  the parly's   me-iting is   that   their   fees  have  been paid for 1 hem.

Mr. Joseph Marti", of Vancouver, is lender of the  Provincial Liberal parly, and Mr. John Houston, of Nelson, is piosidciit of the Provincial  Com-m'iitive AFHoeintinn.  Canadians have become almost iuilil'fi-reiil  to political immorality ; lln-ir apathy and  cynicism havo been the dcspnir of many patriotic men who havo striven for clcmier men  and methods in government. Hut that there  is still a national enn.ricnen c-palile of being  nhnnl;rd is being amply proved by the old  Province of Ontario. A Liberal (Jiivernincnt  lina been in power for thirty years; the Op.  poHition has prole-ded for al. least, half uf thnt  time lluit, only wiile.-iprend cnrruplion ha;,  miide this long tenure possible, Ibitllm nd-  itii(listr.-tion has always protested purity, lias  made sweeping counter charges, and as long  jib possible ri ni,lined ostensibly the ally of the  temporuuee party, wen of tho prohibitionists.  For the last five years corruption on a grand  scale has been proved to have been practised,  but the ministers always repudiated connection with the over-zealous a_t; of their supporters, though such acts weie committed regularly by an organized crew, many of whose  members have served prison-leims for crimes,  men who were known to earn their living by  services in elec.ipn campaigns ; but, naturally,  it was almost impossible to prove relations be-  twei n the criminal agents and their principals. Hut the last election placed the Government in a desperate case, aud desperate cases  require desperate remedies. It was too late  for the usual treatment ; it was necessary  when Conservatives in dangerous numbers  held seats from which purchased perjury could  not dislodge them'.' to buy their support in tlie  Legislature. They could not be approached  by ex-convicts���.some responsible person had  to act. Three such members have stated in  the House that lhey have been offered bribes ;  two of them charge a Cabinet Minister with  making the offer. The Premier offers a judicial commission to investigate the charges  against that Minister; but the Conservative  leader, supported by his own party and by all  the independent opinion in the Province, demands a parliamentary inquiry into all these  charges and also into the whole conduct ofthe  Government's election campaign. Whichever course is adopted, there is little  doubt that the leading Province of the D.)  minion is about to expose conditions which  will rival the ri lest performances of the late  Count Mercier of Quebec.  It used lo be considered praise to be called a  staunch Conservative or a staunch Liberal.  Why it should have been thought so is hard  to explain. Of ceuree change- of opinion for  personal profit is contemptible, but honest  men frequently change their opinions and  hardly deserve contempt therefor. Ofcoure,  it would be very convenient for-party leaders  if they could rely upon the unswerving support of their followers for any object. But it  would be very serious if they could. The  scandalous administration of American cities  has been due solely to the strength of political  organizations whose members voted ,consistently for party victory regardless,, of men or.,  measure?. It will be an evil day.for Canada,,,.-  or for any Province or city in Canada, when,  loyalty to any organization is stronger than  individual conscience and intelligence. A ci.r  izen's first public duty is to his country, province and city, not to his party or parly chief...  What virtue i3 there in supporting...a,, man  chosen hy a majority in your p..rty when you  know him to he neither able   nor   honorable. ?���  Harmony is a happy condition. Harmony  between capital and lab u- would be a delight  to the civilized world. 'Harmony in a country or province would save the energy .'that is  now wanted in struggles for political'supremacy. Harmony in cities and towns might en-  abla larger enterprises to bo undertaken und  greater prosperity to he attained. Harmony  in political organizations may lead to victory,  But, however desirable, it may be too dearly  purchased ; harmony h agreement and it  sometimes happen? that agreement between,  two means the sacrifice of one. Harmony be-i  tween the wolf and tin lamb means 11 ���banqii/.t  for tho former ; harmony between tho traveler  and the highwayman tnuaiu murdor and robbery. Harmony even in such iunnoont mailers, as politics may mean a sacrifice of principles by one parly. When it does, discord is  inoro musical than harmony.

she gets fat enough to raako her eligible

wrists and neck always remain trim, .just

A clever woman, provided she be ruvl
sarcastic and too fully alive to a sense ol
her own importance, is generally an attractive one. lien may be charmed for a
time by a pretty face, but they soon tire ol
mere prettiness. Xor does it follow that
all women of good sense and sharp.Intel
li'ct are necessarily plain. Bright thought!
enliven the most ordinary face until the
rei'eefion of the mind shining out in all
its radiance makes one forget that tho
features aro not pure Grecian and leads us
fo believe that sueh a woman is in reality
a great beauty. The vivacious creature ol
vr.iying moods and quaint fancies is the
one to charm. A man forgets the type ol
b!.",uty sho may or may not possess, so in-
te.'.ested does he become in tlie pleasing
study of a mind that renders her face eve.t
•.-inning, irresistible and pleasing, because, like tho surface of a lake, there
comes a change with every varying emotion. • The attractive woman should cultivate the mind, for a grace of soul and education of spirit count for more than limpid
Ryes, a rosebud mouth and a dimpled chin
She should be ever teachable, for there ii

Xemcsis tracks ur; in our children. We
bring them, up badly, and they punish us
by tlieir ill conduct, either bringing disgrace on the family name or sorrow to
themselves or sorrow with futile regret to
the parents by their undutiftdness. The
indulge:,!: parents who allow their young
ones a I'ri-r hand from the beginning, who
check no fault'.;. lower no crests, punish no
misdeeds, reap their reward in the neglect
and insolence of t heir children, who, never
having been taught self control, have never learned if, and are now quite unable to
beiu^f'nj-ir necks to the yoke of discipline.
Self is their pivot, and on this the whole
of their life turns. If home bo dull to tho
girls, they leave is, no matter what tlie
agony they in.lict on the father, who
doubts the wisdom of girls living alone
in independence—of the mother who needs
their care, their help, their «Hiupanionshipt

remain at home, they make the place iiko
* fair with the constant coming nnd going
of their young friends, their "pals" and

have spoiled them have now to bear tho
brunt and pay the heavy bill. 'It is their
Nemesis, as grim as is that torm which
punishes the children for the sins of the

THE   NELSON  ECONOMIST
It is observed that among those who
have assumed nu uncompromising attitude towards the despoliation of King
in. the forthcoming boundary commission, S. Perry Mills, the eminent Victoria barrister, stands foremost. This
matter might not have attracted
unusual attention, because every patriotic British subject will stand up for
the rights of his country, had it not
been for the force of the arguments of
Mr. Mills and the underlying motives
which are believed to have inspired
their production. In short,,-Mr. Mills
is a descendant of Lord Baltimore, a
name that will ever occupy a proud
position in British history. It will
thus be seen that Mr. Mills, in espousing the ciiuse of King Edward is simply preserving the best traditions of
)iis ancestors. Incidentally, it might
be mentioned, that when the present
King was Prince of Wales, on several
occasions on the streets of London he
was mistaken for Mr. Mills, ins resemblance to the Victoria banister being
so marked.

The photograph fakir, who has been
giving away enlarged pictures and
charging only for the frames, came to
grief, when lie attempted to flimflam John Devlin, known to his
friends as ''The Gunner from Galway."
The fakir had been taking orders for
the enlarged pictures, and charging an
outrageous price for the frames, and
when refusal was made by several women to accept the pictures or the frames
and a demand for the original pictures,
the fakir refused to give them up. The
•other"day several oftbese women called
ou the picture man to get back their
photographs, and it so happened that
John Devlin was bent on a like erran'.l
about the same time. The fakir refused
to yield, und,at the same time used unparliamentary language, which aroused
John's ire,,aud he proceeded to make
8hort;work,of tne enterprising picture
man. In this he, was aided and abetted by some of the women, with the
result that they, all recovered their
property. In future when fakirs strike
this town they will do well to remember that John Devlin stands no nonsense, and cannot be gold-bricked by
anv fakir on, the road.
