Capital cannot, in justice, insist on  its right to form combinations and  deny the same right to labor. A corporation cannot reasonably iii.-ist on  treating witli its employee only as individuals while itself joining other  corporations in diciplining laboreis.  Either organized capital must recognise organized labor, dealing withlab-  or organizations as entitled to recognition like organization of capital, or  the conflict between labor and capital  will produce results more serious" than  have yet occurred. Confronted by a  great organization of capital, the individual employee is helpless. If his demands are backed up by the power of  an organization of his.fellows," heihas  some chance of securing just concessions, and correcting the abuses, of  which he complains.

There were hotels in town  granted licenses by the license commissioners which could not, he felt  sure, comply ,with the act. There  were so many licences granted that  larger houses with the necessary large  expenditure for running purposes  were at the mercy of the smaller bnes  whose expenses were practically nothing in comparison.  Aid. Crage thought the by-lawshcmlil  be enforced, but that time should bu  given the public in which to get their  chimneys built. Tins was also the  opinion of the mayor, and .'10 days  further was granted to people to get  them into shape.  Aid. Brown asked when it was the  intention to put the engineer to work  surveying the recrealion grounds.  Aid. Kilpatrick stated that there  was no patent issued for the ground  yet and until the same was forthcoming he thought it������ unnecessary to  undertake the worlc of survey.  Aid. Wells asked if the construction  of the cemetery fence would he let by  contract or day's work.  Aid. Kilpatrick���������That question was  not decided yet, but that at the next  meeting something would in this regard be announced.  Aid. Grahame asked for information  in regard to the Hotel Edwards. He  wanted to know if the license now  held by the house would come under  the meaning of theMicense by-law, and  if the town had any jurisdii tion in the  matter. The city solicitor replied by  saying that if the license they were  now doing business under was a legal  one that the city could not interfere.  It wiis a question of the legality of  their license.  The council adjourned to meet at  1*30 o'clock on Monday.  The July Annual.  The Hkbald' begs to acknowledge  with thanks a copy.of, the July Annual  of 'the- Kootenay- Mining Standard  (illustrated). ;The publication,,is a  credit not only - to' the Kootenay  country at large bnt to the publishers,  who with unremittinfr care have given  the position of the mining- industry  and the history of the country without  a sign of favor to any particular part  or disti ict.  The half tone work is well done and  the scenes both beautiful '-and inr  structive. Revelstoke 'conies in for  a fair share of notice in the publication  and tlie book would make a handsome  present to friends in'the east, and the  Hearld would advise our citizens to  purchase copies which' are well worth  the price per copy asked.

Will Be a Monthly  Shipper After December ist.���������The  Erection of Ore Sheds.���������Transportation  Problem.���������The Mine is Situated One  Mile From Ferguson, Lardeau's Centre.  A  few  days  ago the Herald   announced a new and im porta nt strike  of over three feet of clean  ore  on  the  Nettie L.. near Ferguson.    Yesterday  the  importance and  richness '.of   the-  ore in this body was  demonstrated by  Assayer  lloldich  when   he   made  an  assay fiom samples brought to lown  by   the   manager,   XV. B. Pool.   IThe  assays gave the astonishing  result as  follows:   717 oz. of silver,   $10 in gold,  70 per cent, lead and 10  per cent, copper.    Mr. Pool was as much   surprised'  as anyone when the result of the assay'-  was made known to  him. although he-'  was satisfied that the strike was a rich'  one yet he did not figure that it would  reach the figures that it did.      Taking  the figures of the assay  and putting it  ih at, dollars and cents, with silver say      ;  at 60c the present market* price, copper at 18c. per pound, and lead at $4,65' '-  per cwb., would bring the  price of the*  Nettie L. ore up to about $540.30 per'  ton,.which is an astonishing evidence" '  of the richness of tlie Lardeau. - The  Hekald1 must congratulate the own-"  e'rs*. but none more, than Manager Poot  who through his pluck and energy h.ift:  made a" famous mine in one single year'  out of a prospect that   had  nothing;  none than "good surface indications"  ���������a speech   that  is often  uttered   in*  Kootenay���������to warrant a year ago the*  work  that was   undertaken   to  bring"  about the. results shown today.    It is"'  the  intention of the manager to start--  ,  stoping ore for shipment immediately,* ,,  'tind already ore sheds are being erected!- _  on tlie grounds and by December first' '-  Mr. Pool^'expects ,to "have _200   tons*  ready for shipment lo the smelter,at '.;  Trail.

The- -  Nettie'L today is an evidence of pluck-  and perserverance, as we stated before..-*  and  there are other properties in the-'  Lardeau that*are as good .-is the Nettie*  L. and' only want the  pluck  of Mr.-  Pool and his- company tir make thenr  *  dividend payers.  ���������^r  LARDEAU-DUHCAN   DISTRICT  . .. *���������  The--Railway-Will Reach Ferguson" as?  Quickly as-Possible".    -,-, *    * ���������  ,-  Mr.  George N. Taylor-has just re-"  turned from a visit to' the Upper Dun-"  can'river, at a point'30'miles"above'  Duncan   City.    His* nrtission. was   to-   .  look after,the Standard group, whicli; '  is being  operated   by   the' Standard-  -  Gold   Mining   company,   and' of  the-  group which is being operated hy the'  Imperial Giild Mines of British  Col-'  uinbia.   Ttifese proper-ties lie alongside.'  ,  of each other* and the same'veins nm1  through each".  tuck, two Indians, paid the full penalty  of the law for murder. But a few  persons witnessed the triple execution,  which was marred by the breaking of  the rope whth hound young Dawson  Niintuck's hands and the frantic efforts  of the murderer to draw himself up  by catching the rope above his head  after the drop had heeen sprung.  Henderson and Jim Nantuck marched boldly to the scaffold, while Dawson Nantuck when within the shudow  of the gallows completely broke down.  His cries and pleading for help could  be plainly heard outside the Dawson  jail yard,  where  the execution  took  place.   ���������       o  A Salvation Wedding.  An interesting ceremony was witnessed by a large, audience in the  Salvation barracks on Wednesday  evening last, when Miss Emma Elizabeth Toombs and S. H. Lawrence were  made man and wife. Brigadier Howell, of Spokane, assisted by Rev. S. J.  Thompson, tied the knot. Capt.  Fisher of" the Salvation Army  corps here was bridesmaid while'D.  Munro acted as best man. After the  ceremony cake and coiree was served  and the happy bride and groom were  extended the best wishes of all present  in which the Uebald has much  pleasure in joining.  .'In speaking of the Standard "group,;  Mr. Taylor said there are two'claimu.'  in the group. There are seven men at*  work .rosscutting and sinking. A-  ledge nf ore has been struck that is' -  three, feet in width and carries gold.-,  silver aud lead, and the ore averages'  $00 to the ton. The' ledge has" been'  triced'on the surface for a distance ot!  300 feet.'  Mr. Taylor i3 also looking after the' -  operations ,on the properties of the'  Imperial Gold Mines' of British Col-J  unibia, The same ledge has' been1  found on the properties as on the'  Standard group,'and the'rmtlook hera'  is equally bright, as on'tlie'Standurd.  There is plenty of money in' the treasury of both companies, and the work-  of development is to be kept up in-*  definitely.  Mr. Taylor reports-th'ht tlie K. Si S:  surveyors are engaged in  marking a'*  railway route from'Duncan  City up'  the Duncan river to the west'fork of  that river.    Duncan Cily promises to,'  be considerable of a place;   The C.P.R. ���������  and   the   Grpat  Northern' will" hoth  complete their lines into Duncan City  some'time this fall.   Then  they will1  he pushed on so,as to get into Trout'  Lake and Ferguson as soon thereafter'  as   possible.     Both   these   companies-  know that the country is a rich'one, ���������  and'fully realize  that if will not  he"  long liefore they will  be enjoying V-  large   traffic,- and  this   accounts   for'  their anxiety tb get'their lines built.���������  Rossland Miner.  A Successful Conp.  police were on   the war  The police were on the war path  yesterday and Thuisday with the  result, that the city treasury is the  richer today by about SIM. The  police made a round up olf all the  houses of ill-fame and the inmates and  owners to the number of thirteen  appeared before Magisti ate Haig and  were fined $10 and costs for each of  the inmates while the landladies were  each fined $15 and costs. -  The Spokane Fair:  An exhibit of North Kootenay ores at ���������  the Spokane Fair this fall will do a lot  for North Kootenay in   the way of  advertising-the district, if proper care"  is   taken   in getting a good    exhibit'-  and a thoroughly live man to look-  after  the   exhibit, - and   one   who  is!  versed in the know.ledge of the district'  and its ores.

Japan has shown how to behave
toward the inevitable. When yon see
tlm inevitable coming along you may
ilo one ot two things. Vou may
st_nd -till and be run down or you
mav climb up and be carried along
by 'it. To do the latter at the right
time requires a nice perception of the
balance between free will and pre-des-
tluatlon, the knack of doing what you
must do with profit and enjoyment to
vourself. Japan was discovered,
practicallv, bv Commodore Perry some
40 vears "ago. She at once divined
that when the world discovers a
countrv that country must either go
forward or be speedily reduced io
'���spheres of influence." Japan chose
to go forward. She tried to he educated. She procured foreign scholars
lo teach in her schools. And now,
in one generation, she has fitted herself to be received as an equal by ��ie
civilized powers ��� of the world.
"While China continues to be a subject
for the international school of carving.
Japan will grow in power and in
national spirit. It is a pleasant occasion. Here's hoping she will so
conduct herself aa to justify the confidence that has heen placed in her by
fcer older sisters.

'You won't mind. I've had so little.

She lingered a moment with her
arms on thc rails. There in the indistinct light, the years fell away

much witiiin the house. She had always been a reticent woman, with a
certain distant carriage of person and
temper that set her apart from thc

She  grow  silentor  than ever.
As for John Roberts, lie steadily

regard to his wife's memory. He
was a lovable, weak Ilbrctl creature.
That capable and buoyant spirit,
which had worn out under u weary
round ol" double duties, had supplied
botlit si-.ength and courage to do for
him as well as herself, and loved
him the bottor for it. Her husband

watched a slim figure toiling up the
street, lt was that ol' Estella. and
the two had met a moment before.

too dclii-iiiely in tho bitter Decembar

about as though it were some fair
spring blossom that thoy wore ready
lo unpetal  and  strew in tlie dust.
Adeline hold the key of her front

long miniites.shifling it uneasily from

and reed I ike fashion against the
sunset, ihe girl crossed lho highway
to her father's house. Presently tho
older woman heard tho click of the
latch that shut her in between the
borders ot  box.
Along tho illumined road went Ado-

step. Once more she came to John
Robert's gale.
The kitchen door stood open. Estella was bringing an armfull of

"Y'es, father, you know I did."
Adeline Robinson rose to go. Th��re
was something suddenly wavering
about her. She had grown finite
"You don't need me," she, said, in
an uncertain ' ' way. "If���if you do,
I'il come.;'
She.'looked at the bowed    figure by
the fire.      She looked at Estella. Th.
' Mis' Robinson," sounded across the I clock tickedQ more     distinctly      than
palings in an awed whispor, "I guess
I'll ko now."
Adeline stood motionless in her
doorway. She was a tall woman with
a still face. ���
"Yeu poor thing"," she cried in a
hushed voice.     "Oh, you poor thing!"
She watted yet another moment.
The procession was turning into tho
"You  poor thing,-'  she cried  again.
An odor from the" woods met h<~r as
she entered tho hou5 _. A great heap
of lifo-everlastlng lay on a corner of
the table; the little room was like a
fagen full of some bitter wine. Adeline rook up the blossoms, and began
daftly to separate them one from the
other, and presently to weave them
into a pale memorial wreath. It was
dainty and slow work. She heard
h��r neighbors returning along the
,/ lane while she was yet busy with the
I*st handful.
"Mis' Robinson!"
She pulled off hsr apron, flung It
evnr the herbs and went to the door.
"I thought you'd like to hear about
things."  said  Mrs.   Standford.
"Come on in." said Adeline.
, "Xo, I haven't any time. Well, no-
t-cdy cried ��� except John Robert, aud
one or two of the rest of ns. Estella
didn't. He went on so it made your
heart ache to hear him."
"Yes," said Adeline.
"She's burled down in the west
corner just by the fence. I guess it
was her own lot. for most all hor
folks are laying round in that,
"I remember the place," said Adeline. "There's a good deal of
penny-royal in that corner."
"Yes. so there is. I smelt It all

Estella watched her going away

was bitter;  It hurt her.
She whom she watched took the
