So you can see we have  not boon idle this summer.  Wo intend as early in the  springes possiblcto resume the  work, starling a now tunnel and  run on the ledge and thoroughly  open up tho properly.

L ���  Most people here can  see  little  dilforenco between  German and  American ideiTs-ol 'dealing  wiih  Chin'a,    ' Germany   proposes  to  insist   on  1he  surrender, of the  criminals before the negotiations  begin and the United Stales and  Great Drituin   propose  to  insist  on   their  surrender, before   the  negotiations end.,   This is plainly largely a 'difference  between  tweedledum    ��aiid     tweedledoe.  The American idea avoids  milking a precedent which might return  to plague  the nations laLcr  and 'also  allows   President McKinley to pose as being  adverse  lo war until   after  the  election,  now only live or six  weeks distant, c   Pui-llier,   il  allows  time'  for  the  battleships   now   under  orders   for  Chin'a   lo  get there.  Why they are being sent, no one  seems  to  know.   ' It i.s  evident  they are not lo be  used   against  the Chinese, 'who have  nothing  worthy of their consideration.,'  The facts seem to be that certain nations, Germany  for  one,  * 1     r  roally desire to- partition China.  M" this be so, it would bo to' Germany's advantage lo make 11 de:  niand that, would not be granted  and thereby bring on a war .before eithei"lhe United Slalos or  Great Britain is in a position to  interfere.

Germany it'must be remembered,  i.s in a somewhat different .position from the- nations, and will  be obliged lo demand and secure  some substantial reparation for  the murder of her Minister at  Pekin. She will hardly be satisfied with pecuniary indemnity  because that savors too much of  blood money, and the Berlin authorities probably ��� find it �� em  barrassing to determine just  what course shall bo pursued lo  secure adequate^ reparation.

Mining has done a  great deal for the nation, bul the  nation has done very little, comparatively, for tin1 mining industry.  The same can be applied to  Canada.

, -There is no more legitimate
busiues* than mining," the risks
attending it are no greater thau
that of any other business, to
coadu'et mining successfully requires the , same hard headed
business instinct, as makes other
vocations successful.' Legitimate
mining has inadejmany. men rich
during the past few years, and
will make many more,- but. unless it is looked after carefully
' failure will be the result.
Marcus Daly was once a com-
. mdn miner, and advanced until
he was at the head of oho of the
biggest metal syndicates in the
world. Patrick Clark graduated
from the mine, he is now one of
the richest men in th'e northwest.
Other names less familiar might
be mentioned, of men who once
pounded a drill, , wlio are now
living in affluence, They reached their present positions, not
, by luck, but by hard work, and
ability to grasp the opportunity
as it'presented itself: looking after the details of ° the business,
letting no chance escape, always
, ou the lookout to advance their
interests.. They will toll you
that mining is no easy road to
wealth. Men nvlur have made
fortunes iiis mines can always
command capital, the man who
invests reasoning that any one
who has amassed wealth i.s a man
to tie to. 'Mining is a legitimate
business, and the way losucqeed
iu it is open l.o everyone who
can grasp t.ho situation.

It is" learned from' a reliable
source that, a number ol'^wealthy
gentlemen from Eastern Canada,
propose to pay a vis-it to 8011th
East Krooteiiay some time in the
early spring, with a view of looking over the mining field, should
their trip^sl.o-.v what they expect
a syndicate will.be formed 1 (./operate in this section, to develop
projects, buy mines, build railroad*, in'fact do work' on an extensive scale.
Richard Cooker advises young
men to go into politics. Dick
has had some experience in making politics pay. It is not every
man who is adapted to politics, it
requires peculiar training, and
unless a man is well equipped
not only with money, but learns
he »eed not expect to make a
howling success in the profession.

There are many places in the
, Port Steele mining division,
.-where large bodies of kigh and
low grade ore exist, and it only
requires capital to convince the
world that South East Kootcjay
is an excellent Held tor investment.

O I  A   Celestial   Who   Went   Wronc   in  Cleaning- Up a'Side'Wall.  Tho   Heathen  Chinese are pe-  ���,      culiiir,  whether, under Iho niune  of "Boxers "engaged   in  slauglf-  tering missionaries, or as a   woi  nurse handling Ihe offsprings oJ  lhe Mclican man.    .lolm  China-  man i.s peculiar/and ut limes may  seem lo be a fool  buDnolalways.  John as a warrior i.s not a success  but'having surrounded   an   unarmed foe, missionaries, women,  und children, he claims  a howling   victory   over   Iho "foreign  devils" by slaughtering his   vie  tims in a most   horrible manner.  Ll i.s aboul 10 years ago,  when  lhe people of  the  Pacific coast  announced that the Chinese made  capital servants, that they tilled  the   bill   in   every particular as  cooks and laundry  men,   in   the  dining roonvparlor or chamber  ���they   were   -'heap   good."    But  constant hordes  of highbinders  political   refugees,  .thieves'and  the worst element of the so called'Flowery Kingdom have come  to prey upon the people .of the  American continent.    '      "   . ���  ;,       The people of the United Slates  ����� "   have discovered, possibly when  , ,.   too late, tli'at Chinese   immigration is an evil to be dreaded, and  'by Federal law have'prohibited  the    further   entrance . of  the  heathen celestial   to  that coun-  ���   , try. ��� Canada,   and  particularly  fBritish Columbia unfortunate in  -   having hordes of Chinamen with-  ' in its borders a detriment to, all  classes of white Uibol', u, menace  lo the welfare of  the  people 'of  the Province-at al.l times.  Wo   .frequently   hoar ,the  ex-'  .' .; -pression,   they  make  good  and  intelligent servants: they are noi  intelligent, and never'can be, for  '"tTie'y'liaveno desire  to   become  so,but are a blight upon the face  '   otlhe globe.    The following incident wliich happened last week  '"'indicates the amount of their in,-  j f -t *  '     telligence. ��� '    ,t   -  "    One of Fort Stceles most care-  ��� ful housewives employed a Chi-  -��������� ��� hainan   to  do  some work about  ���' the' house'j , to 'clean  the walls,  which we're highly finished with  hard   oil,   wash   the floor,   and  ' blacken - the stove. She gave  the celestial-'lull and 'complete  , .instructions as to the work lo'-fte  ���performed, then'went out for a  walllc. Tho , Chinaman cleaned  '"the walls,.' washed _the floor,  blackcned'a.ndj-.poijshed the stove  '���allie riti6. allic samma* Alelicaii  girl," but tliis did  hot complete  the*work to^his  satisfaction.   A  .       i  .' neighbor chancing in, found the  heathen hard at work;.with the  stove  polisli  and 13j-(ush putting  '���> 'On ivdry black polish on the varnished wal.ls,  ho ; hach partially  '" liiiishcd two sides'and 7wa,s start-  "ing in ou-.the   'thirds���the "walls  .,   were black and polished to high  degree, , "alii   sain me"   looking  '" glasV.    Thcjicighbor protested,  .lohn " no sabbo " and told  the  neighbor    to "glif    outte,     too  ihuehco dlam lloollic,   mo  sabbe  "allie  lit tie.'", The  neighbor retired in disgust,   hunted   up  tho  mistress-of tho house1, who. when  .she saw the damage done/woman  lilce burst, into tears,   instead  of  inking ;iii   axo   lo   the   culprit.  Ellon says "that  the  walls   will  have to be painfoc], black may be  all right in a .Joss House, but he  ^cannot -stand   black applied   to  kitchen   walls.    As   a   color   if  might do applied to banners,flags  etc., -\vhen tho Celestial   Mongolians arc pursuing   the "foreign  devils," but hardly suitable as a  modern house paint.  j* *t. -���- -i* ���  m  m  m  i  THE  mm  m  m  %  EL  H.
