WHOLESALE    AND     RETAIL  (i EX ERA L M EKCHANTS  PROSPEROUS  NEW  VBAR  ''**m^g^m^  GO-OPERATION   WITH   MINING  Few   Broad   Hints   to  Prospectors  Miners   and  AVhere. the system of co-operation  has been adopt ed, anel given a fair  trial, it lias proved a success. It has  even snccceideel under unfavorable  circumstances. Can tliere be any  more favorable conditions-fen- successful co-operation than those which  prevail in tliis country ? Our miners  anil prospectors nre scattered over nn  unlimited aien in small unorganized  hand.". Tlieir work is tedious and  hard, their privations great, ar.d nothing but that infatuation which their  mode of life seems to instill���������the hope  of striking it rich some day--could  induce them to persist.  The miner will work underground  for six months in the year to save up  enough to prospect in the hills during  the sninniet'season. There are some  who nre not fortunate enough tn  secure work during the winter months  and who, to defr.iy their living expenses during tho dull season, are  obliged to part with some of the best  claims they liave located feir a mere  song. So that the man who really  endures all the hardships of discoveiy  is he who fares the worst in ninety  cases out of every hundred.  Is not mining a, branch of business  in which co-operatibn would be advantageous? Instead nf scattering in all  directions, would it not be better for a  few practical' men to get together,  pick out the most promising claim on  their list, and co-operate in working  it. for all it is worth? ' At present they  often sell their claims for a few dollars,  the property passes .into the hands'of  another, who . accordingly turns it  over for four or five times the price  paid, and so on until finally it comes  into the possession of some syndicate  that reaps the profits wliich should go  into the pockets of the original locator  and would be his if he but conducted  his business on the co-operative plan.  Instead of selling undeveloped proper-  lies for "i mere tiitte, he might,, on Lhis  plan, ilevelop them and rake in the  big money. ,Such a system would  also be more beneficial to t.he country  at large and tend to its speedy development.  , '  Cue developed property in a district  does more to establish n lepulalion  than a. score of prospects, however  good they may be., It dues not require iiioi'i; capital than lhe ordinary  riisici- ���������-or��������� prnspei-toi'-gc>i_>i"<-__y-po^.,7:  esses to go into a'schi'ine of this sort.  When men show tlieir faith in a  propel ty by elev citing ail their energies to ilsdevi .opnient they naturally  gain the confidence of capital. Practical men will know a good I hing  when they see it, and if it bo their  own, tliey will work it more energetically and economically than if it  were in the hands of some corporation.  Sutiicienl work can generally bo done  by hand and a cheap plant installed tei  demonstrate thc value of a properly  hi'toie heavy and expensive.machinery  need be introduced,    ���������  Mining is essentially it business  adapted tu the co-operative plan. A  dozen men or so, bound ties of self  interest if nothing el.-e, could accomplish much in th's w.ty. The plan is at  .least.onei___.wnrt hy.__ cili_c*oti.-iiler.it.ii)ii.���������  Cascade CiLy Record.   '  Jackson-Smith  Another of those happy events whicli  have been of fieepiuiit "occurrence of  late occurred on Thursday evening at  the Methodist parsonage, when the  popular Ed. S. Jac-kseui, Lite of II. N.  Coursier to Co. and .Miss Eleanor  Smilli, milliner, were united in the  bonds- of matrimony. Mr. Richard  lleielgins assisted the bridegroom and  Miss Edith Pettipiece supported the  bride. Afler the eeiemciuy the wedding party drove to Lhe "newly furnished home of Mr. Jackson "where  some friends h.ul prepared a tasty  luncheoii, to which about 20 friend'"  sat down. "After luncheon Rev. Mr.  Thompson olfered Iheyoung couple the  hearty cnngratuUitiiuis of the friends  assembled and Mi. Winsor and Mr. C.  McDonald conveyed to Mr. and Mrs.  Jackson the congratulations of the  Bachelors' Club, of wliich Mr. Jackson  had been :i prominent member. With  singing, music: and pleasant conversation a happy hour whs passed when  the company bioke. up. The Herald  joins with many others in Revelstoke  in wishing Mr. and Mrs. Jackson a  happy and prosperous life.  Look for the Moral  Counlry publishers receive subscriptions now and then from city  lirms who have no intei est in the  local news of the paper. This paragraph in the Now York Times may  explain,the reason for these foreign  subscriptions:  "A wholesale grocer in this* cjly,  who lias het-ome rich ;it the business,  sayb that his-iiile is lhat when" he selis  a bill of.goeicls on credit to immediately subscribe for tlie local paper of his  debtor. So long as his customer  advertised libeially he rested, but-as  soon as he began to contract his "advertising space he took the fact as  evidence that there \Vas trouble ahead  and invariably went for the debtor.  Said he: 'Tl-.e man who is too poor to  make his business known is tun poor  to do business. The withdrawal of an  advei tiseuient is evidence nf weakness  that, the business men-are not slow to  act upon.   Tliere is nothing like it.'

SHUSWAP J.AKE REGION  A   Section Where   the   Formation   Resembles That of Rossland  Among the comparatively unknown .  uiining regions of the Province  is  the  country   around   Shuswap  lake,   near ���������  Sicaiiious. on the main line of the C.P.  R.    Although   so near  to  transportation,   both   by   rail   and   water,   yet  through a curious neglect the'devclcip-  ment of that district ha .   been   almost  overlooked,     while     other     parts   of  British Columbia have forged   rapidly  ahead.    The formation of the  country  i.s almost identical   with   that   of, the*  Rossland * camp.       The      ledges  are'  immense  deposits   01   sulphide  ores,  carrying  on   the ' surface"   gold "  and .  copper values, mixed with quartz: One  point, of dissimilarity  is  the  presence,  nf zinc blende, which   is  found in   thu '  Shuswap country.

The Hisiiald will withhold any coin-  merits in regard to the same until next  issue, when it is" expected tbe full  meaning of Mr. Kellie's efforts to  enlighten the citizens here on the  matter are better understood.  A few more well managed compan'es  like the Fiench Creek Co., eiperating  placer propositions in the' Big Bend,  would make, this section, eif the country hum. We have tlie mineral and  will scion have access and transportation to all portions ol the district.  Now, all ive want is well managed  companies to operate and develop  liunelieds of splendid claims now  lying dormant.  If a couple of hundred good, smart  girls from the overcrowded eastern  cities would migrate to the Kootenays  they would find no difficulty in securing employment ac .1 respectable  remuneration, in the homes of our  citizens or in hotels. The present  outlook in Revelstoke seems to indicate that we could do with about a  dozen' new ones a month, as they  marry oil at about th.it rate.  "Until the Lai dean claim holdcrs  fome olf their high horse and be content with .something less than a small  fortune for a prospect" said a prominent mining man to the Herald  reporter yesterday, "they cannot,  expect capitalists to go in there  they have them frightened away and  senile inducement will now have- to be  offered to get them hack.

The Iron  Mask company,  on- the   other   hanel,  deny the existence of a vein,  iind  say   _  that if there is cine it has  heen  cutoff  by a flat fault, and terminated. Justice  Walkem delivered  'the   judirinent   of   .  the couit. concluding as follows: "The  parties here   have   equal   rights,   de- "  ponding, however, on  different  titles. '"  The Centie Star have ������ right to follow   .  a vein into the adjoining claim.   The *  Iron Mask, until that vein  is  proved,  have a light to all ore  within   vertical  lines of tlieir claim.

At  St. Andrew's dinners and Burns festivals you would think that Scotchmen actually, as the saying goes, hang  to gether like bats pn.a steeple. Such  Is not the case. They don't hang together "worth a cent, banquet speeches  to the contrary notwithstanding.  As a matter of fact the average Scotch  man out in this country who has a  "situation" wont bother himself with  anyone else unless he has a situation  also.'and can do his trick at buying  the' Scotch.    .  * - *   ������  For chilly selfishness commend us to  a. Scotchman. Th-e-only time a Scotchman evinces any Bobby Burns patriotism is when half shot at a banquet. To listen to the maudlin talk  at banquets one would imagine that  the speakers were a whole souled lot,  brimming over with human kindness,  and clamoring for an opportunity to  show their good will in a practical  ���������way towards fellow Scots. ,We used  to believe in the sincerity of those  whiskey-begotten speeches, and when  Auld Lang Syne wound up tho evening's entertainment and every one  locked hands, tears would well up in  our eyes and we thought what fine,  noble fellows all the other chaps were.  ^^But-v.-e.-know-^better-uow.--- ,   thev make. But to our mind th?y  nro" infinitely superior in thoir loose  whoop hurrah to the him!, cold, iron  clad, non-souletl Scotchmen who are  fondly supposed to he tlio backbone,  vertebrae anel lights and liver of  Canada. Wc aro fully equipped from  personal knowledge to meet any discussion on this subject, and "will  guarantee to get away with any one  who cares to tak. issue with us on  the above remarks.  .    *   *  We have the dead immortal cinch  anyhow. Wo don't need to publish  letters unless thoy agree with out-  own views, and in this "way we can  secure a thoroughly impartial discussion of the subject.  m     ���������     _  Besides, very few Scotchmen, besides  ourselves, are able to write any how.  Irishmen are fine peoplo when they  havo money, but they nover have any.  Like tho Irishman who said it was  hereditary to have no children, it  also seems hereditary to have no  money.  We were at the depot the other  night and saw carloads of Englishmen  being shipped lo spend Xmas and the  proceeds of their last mortgage In the  Old Country. They were going home  to lie about the resources of tho country, and to convoy the assurance that  the only thing needed to develop tha  wraunche is- capital.  *    . . *  We know of one such who flourished  in the neighborhood of Medicine Hat  a short time ago. He was a born pro-  motor iu tho highest and noblest acceptation of the term, and ho felt so  keenly the necessity for safeguarding i  the- stock interests that he became a listen io some old geezer  memeber of ths local branch of the  Stock Association. One, of "the qualifications of membership is the ownership of a cow and a eialf. We discovered on inquiry that owing to the  carelessness of the Post Master General his remittance had not arrived in  time to enable him to remove his cow  and calf (which was all he had) from  out of the possession of the vendor,  who refused to be comforted even  with a lien note ponding the arrival  of the stuff. Consequently our friend  has had to go *ome to England to soo  the eov'nor about turning the blooming  cow and cawf into n blasted company,  and have a prospectus and float shaves  don't vou know. Make a bally good  thing but of it, don'l you know.  lug that makes not only the mon,  but the wee littlo burgs of the North  West over-rate their own importance.  Anything wo can do to humble people  with bogus reputations and exposo  humbug generally, we will cheerfully  do.   Wc aro here for that purpose.  Wo aro a fine lot of ducks anyhow,  thc best of us.

The hardships some of those Englishmen havo to endure after their  money is blown in are sometimes  I-i liable. The poor prodigal cannot go  home, he cannot even pay his fare.

Wo should think contemptuously  of un explorer without a motive, a  navigator without a course, or a  general without a scheme of a campaign: and yet we undertake the  journey and battle or life, trusting  tor direction to the circumstances  and incidents of the way rather than  io a plan or purposo of action and ot  effort.

And tho strangest thing  about our work and habit is, that  what absorbs our timo and energies  ir, rarely a matter of our choice, frequently not a matter of liecessity,  but generally tho result of environment.

The telegrams on the inside of last  week's Macleod Gazelle took up several columns, and were full of lively  interest. Tliero   were    despalchcs  from Ottawa, London and other distant points, some dated July 14th,  but the latest July lGth. We presume  these telegrams were brought to  Macleod ou foot by Indian runners.  Mr. Wood may be expected to bring  back some fresh August news from  his trip east. As it was, we were very  pleased to learn that Cervera's fleet  had been destroyed. Those are go-  ahead days in tho journalistic worlel  down at Macleod. Owing to the awful  wind down there, their editorials aro  all right, but they - should engage  swifter runners to bring their telegrams from the Atlantic sea board.

There  is no one in Canada- more Scotch by  birth and bringing up than we are.  and what we say is the result of 10  years obssrvation iu the States, four  or five in Canada, and some odd  months in other colonies. Xot that  ' we ever had occasion to ask a favor  from a fellow Scot, for, if the play had  come up that way, we know we woui 1  have'met with a rejoinder after .liis  ttyie. "Well, I'm sorry for you, b-it  it 'a your own fault. As a man sows  so shall ye reap." Scotland is about  the size of Ohio. But take an Ohio  man in hard luck, away off somewhere, who meets another Ohloan and  xnak-s a touch. The reply he gets i������  something like this: "Up against it.'  old man? Well, here's a V, go out  and hustle."  ���������   *   ���������  At a Scotch banquet lt Is amusing in  notice the way Auld Lang Syne Is  sung. No one knows the words of tho  verses, except some stray Englishman  or Yankee, and the Scotchmen stand  up with solemn faces trying to give  evidence of the Scotch that is in them.  This always makes us tired.  *  ���������  ���������  These gatherings are lovely excuses for great big drunks. The R:-  glna Leader was gibing The Herald  the other day over a remark dropped  by the latter paper, (apropos of St.  Andrew's day) that there were evidently no Scotchmen in Calgary.  There are a few Scotchmen in Calgary,  but they have no use for one another.  They cannot make any kudos or oof  out of each other, especially those of  the "north countrie" where, so the  saying goes, a Jew can't live. But  get up a banquet, and there they are  slobberine over one another, affecting  to talk thc Doric, and gibbering and  chattering away like a lot of monkeys  about Tam o' Shanter and Soutar  Johnny.  worked the pome DmIumj foi  cent there was in u.

Ilo brings to tho  task a inoiital equipment such as fow men  possess, for his cxporlouco in publio nnd  prlvato lifo has been broad and vuricd.

Probably tho great nines of Americans  think ovon.now of Golonul Hay ns tho author of "1 .Uo County Ballads," in which  ho immortalized Illinois dialect nml created some dozen or moro characters who  will never die. When asked once how hu  camo to writo these ballads, ho said:  "Oh, thoy are rough, hurriedly written  pieces, and it is n wonder how clioy have  lived, but they nro founded on fact, nnd 1  suppose thoy toucth a chord in tho popular  heart. All these pieces woro written within a fow weeks, whilo 1 was working with  W'hitolaw Reid on the New York Trtbiino  in tho winter of 1S71 __. I had a great  poetic fever just then, anel I sometimes  wroto two ballads in one evening. I did  not keep it up long," however, ns I did not  estimate my work very highly, and 1 was  a very busy man nud didn't have much  timo for pontic excursions  "I do not think bo much of "Little  Breeches,' but I rather liko Mini Bludso.*  Hach of them describes a real incident I  first heard of the original of 'Littlo  Breeches' in n sermon prenched by an old  fiiihioned Methodist minister in a country church nt Warsaw, Ills., whilo I wns  tliero on a visit to my nioihor In 1S70, I  think.

Mr. Oovcr Cleveland hns blossomed out  as a full fledged philanthropist. Ou his  farm near Princeton, N. J., has just been  r. tiibllshud n homo for boy waifs from tho  city streets.  Tho ielea Is not u new one, but Mr.  Cleveland la tho most prominent mnn who  litis yet gone into tho enterprise. IIo has  established a precedent for ex-prcsldonts  of tho future. Mr, Harrison roiiinri'ied and  returned to hlR-lnw business. Mr. Cleveland has seon fit to turn philanthropist.  Perhaps ho has answered the vexed question which has been nskod so many times,  "What shall wedo with our ox-presidents!1"  Philanthropy Is nt lonst 11 dignified nnd  laudable pursuit,.  The story of how Mr. Clovoland stumbled iuto tho path of philanthropy is  worth telling. When ho hael settled down  In his Princeton homo with his wifo nnd  children, ho concluded that it would bo n  good idea to own n farm us well as a town  residence. For his threo littlo girls lie  needed plenty of fresh milk, eggs nnd vegetables. So ho bought a farm. It was a  tract of somo G5 acres of rolling ground,  with somowlint dilapidated buildings upon  It. :  About threo months ngo Mr. Cleveland  was stopped democratically on a street  cornor by a young man who introduced  himself as John Henry Vroom. Young  Mr. Vroom proceeded to tell Mr. Cluvo-  land that tho hitter's farm was just what  ho hnd been looking for. Ilo told the ex-  president about his schomo for establishing a farm school for poor boys from tho  city. Mr. Cleveland was interested. Ho  wanted to hear all about tho sohoino, nnd  Mr. Vroom told him. Tho result wus that  Mr. Clevelnnd turned over tho farm to tlio  young enthusiast and told him to go  ahead, intimating thut he would bnck him  in tho enterprise.  Well, Mr. Vroom has gone abend. Without waiting for capital to elaborate his  plans ho has mndo a beginning with whnt  Mr. "Cleveland hns given hiin. IIo has arranged for tho roception of about a dozen  boys In tho oldfarmhousoon tho property,  and work has already been begun. In  time ho expects to build othor houses and  gathor several hundred-boys from tho city  streets. IIo hopes to hnvo ovory foot of  tho G5 neres undor a high stnto of cultivation,, whioh will menu that a good many  idlo hands will be kept out of mischief.  "Our plan,'.' snys Mr. Vroom, "Is not to  found an asylum,'a homo or a charltablo  institution of any kind as charitable "in-  mm  fi'lV.Ui I"'  8a;  iled from Baiavia on Thursday last.! several younger brothers,  Dr. Deane. son of Superintendent  Deane, N.

He was formerly in the  North" West government service at  Regina.

Ills salap-; ho j^scs wuh scrupulous  was $44 a month and out of   this he' ���������    -  had to support a widowed mother and  Iu the smoke of the Prairie Belle.  As for "Castillnn Days" nnd tho more  olegant poems which ho wroto In later  years and on which ho bases his literary  reputation, thoy aro but little known.  Tho "Life of Lincoln," which he wrote in  collaboration with John G. Nlcolay, Is regarded as the most important and serious  pon work which ho has over dono.. It embodies tho intimate knowledge of", Lincoln  nnd of his career gained by his private secretaries' personal observation nnd participation in a lurgo pnrt of tho stirring events  with which it deals and Is regarded as n  contribution to Amorican history of the  first Importance.  Colonel Hay Is a successful diplomat  now, as every onc knows, but thero was a  time when ho knew much less of diplomacy. That was whon ho was private secretary to Lincoln. Ho had a great tcachor,  however, and here is onu of the lessons.  A public man of somo noto had actod  rather offensively townrd tho president,  and John Hay, so the story goes, told tho  president that ho expected to write a letter  giving him a pleco of his mind.  "That's right," saiel President Lincoln.  ���������'Do so; givo it to him. Writo out just  whnt yon think."  John Hay did so, and ho brought in the  letter to the president and read it to him.  As he read Mr. Lincoln from time to time  said: "Good, "goodl That fixes him I" At  Its close Jlr. Hay said:  "Well, he will get the letter tomorrow  morniDg, and wo Will "see what he has to  sav in reply.".  "But," returned President Lincoln,  "you don't intend to mail that letter. I  wanted you to write it out because It helps  one to ease his feelings, but you must not  think; of sending it. You would only  mako tho man angry without doing good  to yourself or the administration." The  result was the letter was never "sent.  As far as tho size of bis salary is con-  corned, Colonel Hay does not care whether  ho stays in London,, where ho spends ns  much again as tho government pays him,  or goes back to Washington, whero he has  a fine mansion of his own waiting to be  reoccuplcd. The now secretary of stato Is  probanly worth something moro than tl,-  000,000. A small part of it he has earned  himself, but tho bulk of his fortune came  to him through his wife, whose father was  the late Amass Stone, the Ohio millionaire.  At 00 Colonel Hay is a pleasant faced  man of about average height, with bright  brown ryes nnd hair and beard liberally  powdered with the dust of timo. Ho looks  much like a typical Wall  street man, for  care. Ho  rames back from England with cnlnrgc.l  social prestige and an international reputation as a very effective and pleasant after  dinner speaker. S.

It is our theory  that good citizens mny bo mado out of  many boys whom unfavorable environment now impels townrd badness. Wo  want to utilize what might bo tho waste  material of society, turning a possiblo disgrace into nn ornament.  "As to actual plnns, tlio boys will not  bo herded togothcr in ono great building.  Wo shall build a numborof cottages, four  possibly at the start, each of which will  accommodate from 10 to 10 boys. In thnt  way individ'.i.'.liiy and a certain degreo of  homo lifo will bo preserved. Wherever It  is possible tho boys will have separate  rooms. Not moro thnn two will occupy  nny apartment. A matron and a man in  chnrgo will bo assigned to each house.  "Each boy upon entering tho school  will havo an aero of ground adjoining the  cottago in which ho lives. This ho will  consider his own, and upon lt ho will rnisu  whntover ho pleases. " Tho geparatn neres  will radiate from tho house like the spokes  of a wheol from tho hub. Nearest tho  dwelling there will bo n flower garden,  then a tract devoted to vogotnblo. or to  poultry, whichever the boy wishes toraiso,  and at tho outer circlo horry. bushes. The  product of each boy's* little farm will bo  sold, and he will rccelvo the proceeds.  With this ho will pay a certain percentage  to tho school and keep tho balance for  himself.  "Thero will be a genoral classroom, of  course, where English branches will be  taught. I hopo also to hnvo a carpentur  shop, a machine shop, a printing houso,  whero tho boys will edit a paper reporting  tho progress of the school; a photographing establishment and other branches of  industry established.  "���������Prominent people everywhere are interested, nnd we expect large donations which  will enable us to carry on the work."  Mr. Vroom seems the right mnn in the  right place. Ho was born in Camden,  went to work ns a enshboy In n department store nt IS and studied in his sparo  hours to fit for Princeton. IIo paid his  way through by teaching .and acting as a  sales agent for business firms anil entered  the Theological seminary, but did not  complete tho course.  Mr. Cleveland himself, while taking no  personal part In tlio management of the  enterprise, is intimately associated with  Mr. Vroom and acts ns his adviser. Ko is  anxiously watching thc outcome of the ex  perlinent. So nro other people. They  would liko to know if the man who for  eifrlit years wns the chief executive ot the  nation ran succeed in tho difiicult field of  philuiithropy. FBA-X'IS B. XAI.bkct.
