These   few   selections bear  strong witness of our claim as  REWARD THEPROSPECTOR  He   Should  be   Encouraged   by   Some  Form of Governmental Recognition  The Herald takes ple.-ibiu-e in reproducing tlie following excellent nnel  timely nrlicle from the l.nsslitnil Minor  of Aug. 21st:  "In ii nevv mining community there  is no more important figure tlinn the  prospector. He is t.he very genesis of  the uiining industry, mnl without n  beginning there emu lie no enel. lie i.  lliu knight errant of the niiiiiii^ worlel,  for he goes about in out of the way  places, and encounters all soils of  dangers and hardships, principally to  the cud that others, inny prosper, for  lie seldom secures substantial benefits  fi-om thnt which ho finds. This has  usually hcon the history from the  time that Sin .shall made llie first discovery of gold on lhe Pacific coast in  Sailer's inillrace in 'California in the  year 184S. . Marshall benefitted very  little by a discovery that brought fortunes lo thousands of men aiul marked  a ne.vv epock of prosperity on this continent. Comslnck, one of the lirst  locators of the Comstock lode, which  added nearly $-100,000,000 lo the world's  stove of precious metal, got but little  benefit- from . his . wonderful find.  Louis Fiinaud, one of the original  owners of the great Tread well mine, in  Alaska, is'now spending lhe evening  of his life in comparative poverty on  the shores of Christina lake. Joseph  Moris and Joseph Bouvjouis sold their  interests in the Le Roi for the recording fees for'soine other properties. It  is often the case when fortune knocks  at the door of a prospector aud he  knows that he has struck it at last he  is compelled by his very necessities to  part with that which he has found  through much toil and hardship I'or a  mere song. Hence he is usually, poor,  but still the prospector'keeps on his  nomadic rounds, hoping in the enel to  find that which will give hiin a com  peteiiee. Iu this i iirsnit no er.-.sgy  mountain- is loo sleep" for hiui- lo  a.-ceiid. No deep, ill v. valley toe) wide  tor hi r.i to cross. Swollen fivers, inuil  with the mot inn given them by lhu  melting snow, oli'ei- no obstacle! to his  pi-ogress, and so he goes on anel em,  anel often pusses over lhe Great Divide  bei'eir*' hu has secured, which lo  bim, has been a mere elusive shadow.  Theie are cases where they secure  substantial rewards, but. these are the  exceptions, and not. the rule.  The Provincial government in its  wisdom has seen fit to pass a measure  lhat. is beneficial to the fanners and  vvill doublless foster, build up and en-  e mirage? Hint important industry.  Farming is one of tbo great industries  of ihe Province', bul it is secondary to  the greatest e E Provincial industries,"  that, of mining. Tbe government  should aid the mining, industry .in  olher ways than in the mere matter  of building trails, roads and the assisting of railway construction. Tho  poorly recompensed prospector should  be'eiicoui-ageil hy some form or governmental recognition. The discovery of  a rich propertv, like the Le Koi, the  Centre Star, the "War Eagle, the Payne  and the Slocan Star, conlVis a great  favor on mankind.because lie virtually  adds from $1,000,030 lo $500,000,000 to  the wealth of thu world. This wealth  ns soon as it reaches the channels of  everyday cDimiience, is ever afler the  greatest possible benefit, the theory  'being"tlie mine money lhe greater the  general prosperity. Hence the discoverer uf, a really good or great mining properly is so much a benefactor  to his fellow man Unit, he is iu every  way worthy nf siibslnnlial recognition  niiel reward atlhe h.inils of I'.is follow  men. itis, Iheiofnii'.obvioustliatt.lic  successful prospector should be re  warded. Il vvill be s.iid that the find  ing of a rich mine is in itself a ' sollt-  cient, recompense. This is not the case  id ways, for lhe reason t hilt the pros  pecl.eir rarely receive-.*, a tithe of the  real value of the property because, as  was said before', he if, compelled by his  usual chronic slate of poverty lo part  with it for whatever be can get.  This recognition of lhe prospector is  not dictated by mere sentiment,*' as it  has its ulitariar. side. Tliere is nothing  that iinpels-Iiuiiian aclion so much as  the hope of reward, From a coldblooded standpoint of results to be  attained, the Government shoulel dons  suggested in this article. In British  Columbia tliere is a uiining section the  like of which in richness and extent  does not lie outdoors on God's footstool. It is best for the present generation tbat -is much of this mineral  wealth as possible be extracted at the  earliest possible moment. Make il c-cr  tain that the finder of a meritorious  property will be given! a suitable reward and there will be renewed extra exertion all along the line, and  such discoveries will be made within  the next fevv years iis vvill astonish the  world. Have a law enacted covering  this matter at the earliest possible  moment. It will help the Piovince  uioie than any other legislation thot  could possibly be enacted.  beinj_  bargain  Revelstoke's  eivers.  greatest  Bourne Bros.  LEMEN^S CIRCUS  Large   Crowds   Pleasingly   Entertained  at Yesterday's Performances  The first performances of Lemon  Bros.' circus were given yesterday  afternoon and evening on lhe grounds  opposite the general hospital. There  vvas a gootl at lendanci; and tlie crowd  came away well pleased with what  they saw. The performance in lhe.  rings anel on the. platform was all of it.  good and some of it extra, good. In  the latter class would fall the bareback riding of little Edna, who performs tbe difficult, feat of turning a  somersault on the back of a galloping  horse. The first time she tried it yesterday she missiiel her slippery footing  mil went Hying to the ground, but,  recoveted herself immediately and  gained all tlie more applause by successfully accomplishing the feat on  succeeding trials. A very taking act  was that by two artists, one of whom  held up'a long slippery polo while the  other performed various very pretty  feats upon the top of it. Two lady  acrobats did some splendid balancing  work on the trapeze, even swinging  lhrough a wide are while standing  upon tlie bar. Two sets of three- men  did some very good tumbling feats,  some of wliich wore afler the style of  those performed , by the Bartellis sit  tlie exhibition. The flying ladder and  flying rings were both entertaining  ai wiis the performance of two of the  acrobats in flying leaps, the latter  being the best exhibition of the kind  ever seen here. ,,A lil Lie sijuail of  clowns played baseball, set oil firecrackers and in olher ways created  amusement. 'Four trained horses did  some very clever work in tlie ring. A  team of "four, two ladies and two  gentlemen, contributed a series of  tumbling acts. The show ended vvith  the usual hippodrome races, including  the Eonian chariot race, pony race,  man against horse, mule race, etc.  There vvill be two more performances  today.  In llie menagerie the finest specimen  of elephant licsh ever seen in the city  is on exhibition. Kajah was captured  on the island of Signaporoand brought  io America in 1S92. He is only-28  years of age and is a kingly fellow.  He stands two inches taller than  Burnum's Jumbo and weighs 2,000  pounds more.'

The female is 75 years  of age and bears the sweet name of  Jennie. She is -i native of India; the  other male is 2S years old and is from  Bni-mali. The boxing kangaroo was a  liig attraction.

Fred Hume,  member-elect for lhe Nelson riding of  West Kootenay, wus sworn in as  Minister of Mines unel Provincial  Secretary .iu Hon-^lr.Sciiilin's cabinet.  A Paying Profession.  "There is no profession that holds  out such tempting allurements to the  youth of today as thut of the metallurgist .-uicl mining expert," saiel D. G,  Downs of San Francisco. " Last year,  of the class of about a dozen who were  graduated aL the school of mines in  the University of Califeuni.-i, at least  ten have found excellent i-.itna.ions.  with big salaries. Our universities  cannot turn out expert mining eugin  eei'8 fast enough for the demand  When I was in London last summer  an Knglish scientist l.eilel me that there  will be a strong demand for years for  competent nieii. and added that England kept the Uniteel States drained of  tlie best mining talent. They are  wanted by South Africa, in Australia,  New Zealand : in fact all over the  world, and Ihey can get higher pay  thun doctors, lawyers or any other  class of professional" men. Any young  man who is ambitious for a career that  vvill lead to fortune, if not to fame, anel  perhaps to both, if he be industrious  and steady, wirl make' no mistake by  ejualiying" himself in. the direction of  mineralogy."  WHAT ]T_ COSTS  [CIIMML'MRATKO]  Tn view of the coming plebiscite the  following quotation of the- cost of the  liquor trallic will be of interest:  HlilKCT COST  The report of the Royal Commission  on the Liquor Trallic estimates the  inniiiil expuudil uru toi-" strong eli-ink  in Ciiiiiulit in the following paragraphs:  Taking au average of iiie quantities  of wine's, spirits anti malt liquor.-*  entered for consumption in the live  years eniling lS'Ji-t. but excluding cider  in tl native wines, anel taking an  ivcrage of the retail prices, tbe calculation shows the sum of $39,S79,Sol  to be paid for liquor by the consumers.  As more than one-half of ithis amount  is paid for spirits, to which, it is well  understood, a large addition of water  is added before they are vended to  the public, the total amount paid i.s  probably considerably in excess of lhe  sum just mentioned.  The money thus paid may be fairly  saitl le) represent so' much diminution  of wealth, its the liquor, when consumed, leaves lhe community in no  way advantaged. When money is  paid for clothing, food, or olher com-  modities, lhe purchaser is supposed to  have value for his outlay. Both buyer  and seller respectively possess wealth  formerly held by his customer, but li.e  customer-consumer has nothing. The  community is poorer at least to lhe  amount of money spent for the lit)nor.  We have therefore a right to sia'e  that the country is . impoverished  annually by the direct, expenditure on  liquor to the amount of ?>j9,S7S),854.  The count ry is also-impoverished by  the vvasle of grain used in the manufacture of this liquor.*> Part of it was  Canadian grain which, had it not been  used in liquor making, would have  been available for export or other use.  Part of it, was imported grain, for  whicli the money had to go out of thu  country. All the giain destroyed in  the lie-uor manufacture has a right to  a. place in the calculation of loss. The  commissioner's estimate of the value  of the materials used is $1,188,70.). .  INDIRECT COST  The sums mentioned represent what  may be called tho direct loss which  Lhe" liquor trallic imposes upon the  community. That trallic also causes  other and far greater losses which are  not so easily ascertained. The minority report, however, deals vvith lliem  fully and forcibly, making _a careful  estimate which may be summarized as  follows:  Cost of jails, asylums, alms houses,  etc.���������By a very 'careful calculation it  is shown that the total amount  expended by the Dominion of Canada  in the administration of" and  for the maintaining of penitentiaries,  jails, asylums, reformatories, almshouses and like institutions, amounts  to a total of $5,028,105. Assuming that  one-half of tliis expenditure is fairly  chargeable to lhe liquor Iuibit and the  liquor trallic, we get as the cost to  the country, thus caused, the sum of  $3,014,007.  Loss of Labor.���������The country loses a  great deal because of the prevention  of tbe production of wealth on account  of persons being in j-iils. hospitals,  asylums, or in any way iellp through  intemperance.' The working of a  gang in a factory or any set of  "|5ei~~~~i~~r\vlu~~"w"ork-���������"|-������~~_;'i"tWr7~jB''inier"  fered wilh by the absence ot one or  more in the same way. Much of  our most highly orgahizi'd manufacturing industry is thus seriously h-iu ;  pored. Not only do those who drink  lose lime and possible earnings; their  fellow employees are also loser.. The  ineluslry which employs them sulTer  loss. An English parliamentary report eslimates over sixteen per cent,  of the productive labor uf the country  us lost in this way. Assuming lliaL  in Camilla lbe loss is onlv eight put  cent, it amounts to S*!7t),2~>S,00. 1.  Shortcncel Lives.���������('.ireful calculations show thill.H.OOO lives .ne annually  cut short in Camilla by intempeiiince,  each such death robbing the country  e)f at least an average of ten years of  productive power, lt is e-slimuted iu  Ibis wav vve sustain an .'innu.-il loss of  SM.-.JOl.OOO.  Mi*; directed Work.���������A similar calculation shows thiit the country loses  by having about II'.OOO men engaged  in milking and selling 'liquor, nol  actually adding anything to the  wealth" of the country, but ci eating  e-ineliliems which increase pulilic  burdens. If rightly employed these  mens would aelel lo the country an  amount of wealth which we have, tei  do without. ostimuloel'-:it S7,74S,000.  [to ni-: COKTIXL'KU]-  Three Promising Claims.

AUGUST 21,    1S08.  The  C, P. R, and  Temperance  The Brandon  Independent recently  entered a complaint against the C. P.  B.'s system of paying its employees  by checks compelling the men to resort to saloons and hotels to get their  checks cashed.   The editor of the Wetaskiwin Free Lance as an old employee  of the C. P. R., ought to be fully qualified to speak on the subject, and what  lie says is eminently creditable to tbe  management of the company.   It characterizes the Independent's article as  a    glaring    misstatement    of      facts  and its deductions as palpably wrong:  "Any one who knows anything at all  of the C. P. It.," says the Freo Lance,  "knows that they are greatly opposed  to intemperance.    More so than any  other agency in Canada,  lo our personal knowledge.    In the first place,  to obtain a situation on lhe C. P. It.  y a man has to say that be does not use  intoxicants at all.    After  he  is  employed the company's rule book���������the  recognized law of the company's employees ���������says Uint preference in promotion will in every case be given to  the man who? does not use    liquors.  When the company commenced paying  their men", by check they gave "instructions  to  all  their  agents  to  provide  sufficient  money  em  pay  day  to pay  these  checks,  and   as  a  further  pro-  caution  they  arranged  with   a   large  , number of banks  all  parts of the  :country to cash  their checks at par.  Some months ago tliey required each  ; employee ' lo   sign     an     agreement,  which is practically a total abstenance  pledge, and made the penalty for the  agreement instant dismissal from the  service.     Later .still,   they   issued   a  circular to all employees, saying it had  been reported to them that some employees were in the habit of getting  their checks cashed in hotels and bars  and  that they  must  discontinue the  practice. We are satisfied that had the  eiditor  o������  the    Independent    known  these facts he would not have written  his article, for whatever else the CP.  R. Co. are doing or are not doing for   th__penple__o������i_Canada, they arc certainly doing more to furth~er~t'ne^tem-'  perance movement than all other agencies combined, and any one at all familiar with the decrease of the use  of liquor among railroad men during  th" past few years will substantiate  thi..'

Did ever men of our race before,  submit in silence to such?outrageous  impositions as are being daily forced  upon them?       c  "The public be danined" appears to  be about the policy of those who are  presumably placed here merely to protect .-e rights of all��������� not the interests of the ring.

THE   AMERICAN- NAVY  New York, August IS.���������A special to  The Tribune-from Washington says  the strength of the navy will not be  ���������precipitately reduced on account of  the suspension' of hostilities, but on  tiie contrary the administration has  determined that a very large naval  force Is necessitated by the increased obligations the United States has  undertaken, or had forced upon her.  Orders have been given not only for  the prosecution of energetic operations at all naval stations to speedily-  put in fine trim all tho regular war  ships of the fleet, but a very large  proportion of the auxiliaries, whicli  were purchased to the number of  i-.early~a hundred, will be considered  in the category of permanent addi-  tions; to the navy. Others, will be ..turn-:  cd over to their original owners.ior  sold to the highest bidder. Such a  policy was favorably considered by tlie  authorities a few weeks ago, but hardly had the peace protocol been signed  than tlier. resulted a more adequate realization of the great change  lhat the 'navy had almost invisibly  undergone, and today the conclusion  is almost forced upou the naval administration that the American sea  power cannot safely be curtailed, if in'  fact it will: not be:essential to increase  the vessels afloat as rapidly as  possible. -  MUSTERING   OUT  OF  SERVICE  .Washington, August j7.���������An    order  will  be issued  today, ,wlicn approved  ; by the cabinet, mustering out of service    about  50.000  of  the    volunteer  forces.

There  hail been a firing of arms inside the  town by members of this regiment,  without orders, and so far as is known  some of the men indulged in liquor  until thoy have verged upon acts of  license and ''disorder.

Dr. Scott of this place  was called down early Sunday morning to attend to sonic of the victims of  the previous night's storm. Ho found  the house and stable of Blnnskcy completely .'demolished, lhc cooking stove  had dropped down into the cellar.  Tho floor seems to have been drawn  from under the stove. A three  months old baby was blown about SOU  feet, aud then stopped by a wire  fence, and was not found for some  time afterwards. It suffered hardly  any injuries beyond a few bruises and  slight cuts. Mr. Blanskey escaped  without a scratch, but his wife was  seriously injured, and the doctors do  not seem to know whether the : accident will be fatal or not. A wagon  standing In front of the house was  picked up and carried over a" milo and  a half buried in the ground. A  mower was rolled over and:over until  you could find hardly one of the  pieces. The strange feature of the  storm was lhat the wind split on lho  Colony association store, taking  Blanskey's house and stable on one  side, and the association stable on the  cast side, doing no damage lo the store  itself.

Present  indications show a proforenco for a medium brown or gray offcot with nnrrow  longi.udinnl stripes or Binall: figured of-  footn. In renl summer weather this gnr-  ment will nnturally be used only by vory  fow riders.

Big baggy knees have  been diionnlod by tho swell cutters and  the knlokerhoekers are now mailo quito  narrow uroiind tho kneos. Room for knoo  action Is allowed by giving umplo longth  to the trousors. Thu otfeot is inuoh hotter  Ihnn was the ense,with'-thp;,'old stylo.

Tlie:fancy, in  ���������tocklngB In solid colors, preferably, black,  with fanoy tops to liiirnionizo in e;olor nnel  effect with thu trousers^. The fuvoritu caps  aro suoh ai harnioiii-o with tho trousers.  Through whutevor ohiingo of genernl  design pedals hnvo passed thoy have always  been attached to^ the crunk with fixity ns  positive as tho handle of a.wiiidlass. In  faot." the principle'of?-leverage" in a pedal  is Identical with that of ������ windlass arm  or the crank of a grindstone. The new do-  Vav-ture is a swinging pedal that gives a  constant ohango ot position to tho foot,  the ohanges acconnnodating themselves lo  those of the crank.: It is designed to give  -i more advantagoous application of pow*  tir, and some export mechanical students  of the bicycle concede that it does so. It  also makes ankling a necessity. Even  those riders who habitually keep tho foot  rigidly nfc right angles with the leg hnvo  to drop the too with the down thrust nml  lift it with the up rise when u. ing a pedal  of thU swing variety. Tho pednl swings  beoatise tho pivotal point does not correspond with the blodpp upon which tho foot  of the zider rests. This peculiar condition  is due to the fact that-the foot rest is  screwed Into the margin of a plato that  fits tbe end of tho crank. Tha foot rest  portion is always bolow the oyo of: tbe  orank, because lt rorolvos on ball bearings  ln conjunction with tho outer shell of the  plate. This action is about tho samo as it  would be if the shaft of n pednl hnd a'  small arm at right angles with tho shaft,  | while the foot rest wns attached to the arm  ��������� ������nd tha shaft in the eye of the crauk wo������  | e _jn������ted eo as to revolve freely. With tb"  pedal ���������winging la this manner the cranU  Is in  effect lengthened 'on the down war-  thrust and shortened ou tho upward.  Kobort C. Ilunsull has applied for n patent on an inrontion for the protection of  the inner tube of a tiro against puncture.  The protective iii'iiioi' is of motal or  scales overlapping each othor in a pocullnr  liuuinor and hinged or flexibly coniiiwteil  togcthor anel to ii fabric layer ns a uiiuliiiiii  for holding thu plato or scales in position.  Tho joints bbtwuon tho plates or sculcs extend longitudinally or olroumforuntlnlly,  which affords tho armor all tho Uuxibllity  or pllanoy necessary, u d nt tho same timo  tho armor effectively protocta tho innor  tube from punctures.  Nearly 80 pronilnont mnkors of wheols  have arnuigcd to build tricyclos. Those  threo wheeled iiiuolitiics aro mora suited  to many than bicycles, anel for ordinary  road purposes nro superior in many oases,  aR thoy nre now mndo vory light, and n  fair rnte of spooil cun bo maintained with  tlio samo exertion used for propelling a bioyclo. Most of l.hodiiiigiirK of bicycling are  lono'.nwny with, it boing impossiblo for  tho machine's to sido slip or tall. Timid  porsons who hnvo rofrainod from cycling  on this account will now havo nn opportunity to rielo without any more danger  than is to bo oncountorcil in driving.  ��������� i.Tolui Riddell of .Solionoctaely, N. Y.,  has devised aii attachment for recording  grados in connection with elistancos by  nionns of the bicycle. Tho apparatus b  curried on: tho top bar?by light clips,.and  the bar is assumed to bo horizontal. A  rod running along above tho bar is drivon  by a small pulley and a cord from thn  'oriink nxlo, and thisrod has on its forward  end an, ondloss oruw whicli������������������'slowly turns  a vertical drum that carrios a reel of paper  for the record. A marker is held in contact with this reel, nnd so long ns the surfaco traveled over is horizontal the lino  traced by tho marker on the papor roll is  straight, indicating a level. Under tho  top bar and just umlornoath tho roll a  weight is hung, whioh is freo to swing  backward or forward, but in no other direction, anel tho position of this weight,  by simple connection, is mndo to control  tho.vortioal position of tho marker point.  In going up or down any grndo the pendulum swings backward or forward, raising  or loworing tho marker, und thus causing  its lino to approach or recede from ti second llnt> which represents tho horizontal  level. Tho result is a record, on n fixed  scale, showing distances and the oxaot rise  or drop of tho surface, furnishing a complete topographical profile in just the time  required in trnvoling over tho road. This  device may provo of great valuo to engineers, railroad, military or olvil, and it  offers an imniodiatuuse in tho preparation  of roael maps, which have heretofore boon  uaablo to indicate gnulionls.  WHY JEFFRIES WON.     .  Coolness   anel   Skill   Moro  Thau  a  -Ialcfi  '.For! Urate .'Streneth.  Tho recent defeat oC Sailor Shurkey by  Jim Jotfries in San Francisco is regarded  by sportsmen generally us a viclory of  mind over matter. Sharkey pursued liis  usual aggressive methods, depending upon  brute force to win, but snicked up ngulnst  liujru bulk uiul dexterity tilun ho bargained  for. Tho rowdy methods of Sharkey hnvo  dono much to plungo pugilism into deep  dinieputu, and the succoss of Jell'rijs is  wulcoineii by tho sporting fraternity. Jeffries' record is ns follows: April, 1897,  knocl-oel out T. Van liuskirk in two  rounds: May, 1807, knocked out Diok  'Bakor in nino rounds; July, 189", draw  with Gus Ruhlin, 20 rounds; Nov. ,10,  draw- with Joe Choynski, 20 rounds, and  defeated  Peter Evei-itt in   April of  this  ���������IA.MES.T. JJtrFHIES.  : year.; In 1801 Sharkey earned a name as  a slugger by knocking out six. men at.  Honolulu, wliuro ho was serving as a sutler  In the United States navy. Tho mon he  knocked out wero Jack Langley, "Rough"  Thompson, twico; Nick Burlcy, GoorRO  Washington, and Billy Tnto. Arriving In  Cnlil'arHln in August, 1894, he Wns nuitali-  od ngalnst Sailor Brown, and at Vallojo  knocked his man ont in two rounds and  then boxed a -0 round bout with Kick  Mulvohlll, with no decision. Sharkey than  remained quiet until the spring nf 18110,  whon nt Shu Francisco ho won from .loo  Choynski and' immediately after defeated  Jim Williams in short order. In June of  tlio samo year lio boxed a momornblo four  round draw with James J.

Additions are being mndo; rapidly to tbe  list of moinbors of tho United Statos Golf  'association, snys".Thp Golfer, and the roll  is now heading for-tho 200 mark. Tliis  should be reached within a year, judging  by ths past growth of tho association. The  number of organized clubs in this country  Is now suflicient to bring tho membership  tip to 1,000 clubs if. thoy would all enroll.  It Is the duty of every organized and eligi-  blo club to join the association. , Tho reason for this Is tbat if it wero not for the  association the advantages of the game  would have beon slow In coming to tho  nttontion nf tho great, number now playing the gain?, ami the founders of  soointion Bhoulel be nielrel In ovory manner  to continue the work so ahly planned.
