The day is coming when a man, wht^  buys one shajre of stock; Jrivanr mcorr  porated company will have' his interest  protected, but what can we "do" tt?  hasten, this state of^things*"i It does  not seem jusi that a wage-earner who  stints himsfcl/ of luxuries, we will st^jr-  and puts his savings into a corporation;  m an effort to provide for that "rainy  day" that, we all fear, should lose that  estate which in-a crisis may . mean Jife  or death to himself and i family;'; ji>  order that certain predatory interests  may acquire a-valuable p'ropeity at a  mere pittance. When the show down  comes it is an uneven i battle, an;"or!  ganjzed force versus a disorganized and  helpless lot of shareholders. Asia  ^en'ejaUtbing.stock in a "company;is  sold the first thing,'and stands a paWr  mount first mortgage against, the concern; then those "inside," with the aid  of their promoters' stock and the  piox.es . which -the innocent share--  holders send them, vote to mortgage  everything, giving'a first mortgage, and  the stock that was previously secured  by certain assets, is converted into  worthless papier, while the friends o'f  the "insiders" get a strangle hold oh  the company that was put on its feet  by the mon^y of the small' investor.  The question is, who, or what organization, that is in the right position, is  going to start the work that 'will place  the minirig^indu^try^  tion/rf its ^fftit^t^Tin^t^^&^ri^  ln 'bur midst ' predatory trusts, work  men's unions and farmers' unions; the  next big movement will be for a Consumers' Protective Association, for the  others are getting too, high-handed  altogether so what's the matter with  an organization for investors that- will  fight their-battles in Parliament and  throughout the land? Its eye, if  vigilant, might strike fear into the  hearts of those Black Knights who  would make a little easy. money by  aerial financial tactics  w  Filr Program Well Illustrated  The Spokane Interstate Fair has issued a striking and handsome program  embracing exhibits and attractions at  the 1909 Fair, copies of .which, it is  announced by the management, may  be obtained by any person who will  write secretary, R.H. Cosgrove.  In many ways this latest interstate  Fair, program is a souvenir' worthy of  keeping, showing; asit does; the tremendous strides taken by the Interstate Fair since last year. In live stock  and fruit and vegetable departments,  race program and vaudeville and circus  attractions, this program- shows why  the cost of giving the Spokane Intei-  state Fair this year will amount to over  $100,000. Of this sum $60,000 will  be given in premiums, purses and attractions.

This j  work demonstrated four parallel veins,  traversing: the claims from north to  south, the ledges ranging from 50 to  100 feet wide, and three of them-being  over 400 feet in length. Assays were  also obtained ranging up to $18.50 per  ton. ���   . - ���   : '- ���   )  Early in July of this year G. B.  Dennis and Hans J.

A contract'was recently let to con  tinue the tunnel .which was being  driven to crosscut all; four ledges at  depth. The contract is for 400 feet  and the tunnel is being driven by a  double shift of miners with the expectation of striking the first ledge some  time in October.

The Polar  -~ midnight came' upon them after the  /$$rsteh started.  It Was, therefore, sunrise of  1908,  ' February the  19th before the actual  7  expedition towards the pole started.  Elevefa 'Esquimaux witn upwards of  " 100 dogs and about a dozen  heavily  1 stedges left Greenland shore westward  f oyer fhe ice ilows of Smith's sound,  '. ^they crossed the heights of Elsmere  Sound to the Pacific slope the temper-,  ��� attire "went down to 83 degrees.    The  ' consequence   was   many   dogs were  ���   frozen .and the hardy men of the north  ���suffered greatly.  However,  they found game  trails  bymeans of which they got through  Ntmsen's Sound to Land's End.    This  1 remarkable march proved an excellent  one for hunting, rib less than 101 musk  oxen, seven bars tod  335 hare being  obtained,   Then they started out into  the Polar Sjea from the southern point  Of Heiberg Island.   On March  i8ih,  ' tfaesy   crossed   the circumpolar  path,  having  left the  Esquimaux  with 46  dogs moving supplies.    The train had  ixsen desolated and now exemplified  '   We sUfviVal bf the fittest.  ^TrilE   tAStf 460 MILES  Dr. Cook took the two best men  J.W3 flfe tfS best'dogs, and started out  'ti&'fcaa- -$tsss3 'antf setwati-onAl d-asb to  trjjiS goto whwfe so bnunsn ege kad,,  ever yet seen. There was an unknown  journey of 460 miles before the pok-  could be reached, the femperatrire was  low, accompanied by high winds,  which made  life almost unendurable.  They advanced doggedly over a sea  of continuously moving ice; they were  beyond the range of all life, neither  footprints of the hardy polar bear, nor  the blow holes of the seal were to seen.  On the night of April 7 th, they saw  the swing of the sun at midnight over  the northem ice, and they now had the  remarkable experience of being sunburned and frost bitten on the same  days. They had advanced but a ltttle  more than 100 miles in nine days.  They were about 200 miles from the  pole, and they had to reduce the sled  loads, one dog had been eaten by his  comrades and then another and another  until the teams were greatly reduced  but it was hoped the balance might  still penetrate to the centre of the  world's greatest mystery.  FOUND LAND ICE  When they passed the 87th parallel  they were surprised to find indications  of land ice; they travelled for two days  over ice which resembled a glacier sur  face. Their observations on the 14th  showed they were less than 160 miles  from the pole, the pack was moving,  but the temperature remained below  40, and each of the new crevice was  quickly cemented. Then, too, ice  formed over the open waters as though  nature which had been so unkind was  at last making a road before them.  At camping time there was no longer  sufficient energy in the party to make  a snowjiouse. They trusted themselves  beneath the shelter of a silk tent.  Signs of land were seen every day, but  it was believed they were only fancies  in the minds of men who had suffered  so much. However, good astronomical  observations were made every day to  prove their position.  The ice improved, ond on April 21st  they had reached 89 degrees 59 minutes 46 seconds and were at last in  sight of the pole. A flag was raised  that day to the long sought breezes of  the Korth Pole. Careful observations  were taken and a careful study of local  conditions made; it was an endless sea  of purple snows, not a sight bf life,  land or anything to., oreak a monotony  which was simply appaling.  On their journey back they found  their food supply becoming terribly  short j it was no longer an effort tb  reach thepole��but a desperate struggle  against famine; and frost to get.Back  to further supplies." They had violent  gales, but starvation staring them in  the face, they dare not delay for better  weather. On May 24th the sky cleared  somewhat, and' observations  showed thep were in the 84th parallel,  near the 87th  meridian ; the ice' was  spaces of open  water.    Yet with  TEA.

They only h-ad Jan  occasional bird to eat, and with great  hardships   they   continued   eastward  until  the   early  frost   of   September  stopped them.     With the tk>wr>ak>d  arrow, the line,  the lance, and the  knile they cut their living but of a very  desert,   getting  muskosc,   bears   and  wolves, and prepared an underground  den, in which they remained until sun  rise of 1909.   On February 18th they  started for Anrtbotohok; they made a  new equipment and reached the Greenland shores on April 15th.  There they  were greeted by one of their friends  and   a   party of  Esquimau^.    They  moved southward toward the Danish  settlement, and reached Uppemovik on  May 27th, 1909.

When  the mining industry demanded men to  make a systematic study of geology and  minerals, so  that  they  might  be  of  value to his employers in keeping them  from wasting money, the   mining engineer  sprang  into   oeing.. When   the  cry for electrical  inventors   rang over  the world men began tb   study and research into this branch of science and  the electrical  engineer came into his  own.    Giant bridges'���and. lofty   buildings, continental railroads  and   water-  power  developments  demanded   civil  engineers, and even'the  great  industries have produced   their   mechanical  engineers. ...... ,  While this new profession is distinctly American it is true that the pioneer  work was started >in  England,   when  iVtr. A. ,P. Trotter developed several  new methods of -calculating illumination and advocated a more rational use  of light. But from this humble start  it was Americans who made this new  profession! Illuminating engineer belongs to this country, and the veterans  in the profession can be connted on  the two hands. Ten years ago the infant  had not even been christened, and the  rapidity with which this science has  been accepted and' placed among established professions has no parallel in  history. After centuries of ignorance,  prejudice, and malpractice, in the short'  space of half a dozen years illuminating engineer has risen to a position  of recognized standing and independence.���--American Review of Rewiews  for September.
