At the top will he seen  lhe main fiee milling quart'/, lead,  which has been traced clear acro-s  the eight claims in lhe group. As  will be seen a tunnel is being run liom  the point on the mill .site at the foot of  the hill wliere Ihe surface sliewings of  the outcrop cut the Jleiilieiinick c'reek  trail. After being driven .j..">00 feet  the tunnel will be directly under the  mouth of the shaft which is being  sunk on the group on the ledge where  the big outcrop is located, at which  point it is estimated that n depth of  16o0 feet will he gained.    Tho tunnel is  being driven so ns Lo keep along the  l.-dge all the way gaining depth with  every foot. Tlieiuitci opof thisNol vein  .is il i.s called is of great width���������nearly  100 feet, and runs clear up and down  the hill. Hit further, olher leads  radiating Ironi the big outcrop, on  tup have been (raced at intervals  running down the slope of the bill  I on which the group ia located. All  | tlu* indications point to the existence  ol an immense ore body in the depths  of the hill. It is obvious that the  Northwestern D-jvelopment syndi-  cil e's plan of operations will inevitably disclose, whel her such a body of  ore exi.-ts or mil. If it does the potentialities of wealth to be obtained  from tbe property are incalculable.  Tf I he indications hold out, there must  l>e millions of tons ot free milling  quarts, to lie opened up by the long  tunnel and shaft, as shewn on the  diagram and the Cunlniriu' mini, will  prove a second Smith Dakota llonie-  stuke.  Because not only are the cropping*  on the property letnarkable in size but  the value of the quartz exposed is  considerable. Thero is plenty of the  rock on view in town and as everyone,  who has examined it. knows it is  almost impossible to select a piece,  which does not carry particles of I'ree  gold distinctly visible to the naked  eye.   At every point at which the veins  have been opened up tliey cairy the  gold values. A general average of  specimens laken nil over the group  .goes about .$28 lo the Ion.

The Mail and the Labor Party  To Tin: IlKHAT.n:  The Mail under "Political Notes"  last week makes some suggestions  with reference to having ' certain  understandings with the Labor Party  in the matter of candiihiU*-**. 1 wish lo  say that the Labor people, having  once entered upon the deviou.-, ways of  politics, will stand ur full as a Labor  Party. \They have passed through too  many disappointments in the past in  supporting double fated politicians to  now allow the latter to ingratiate  themselves in^o tlie good graces of the  wage earner. " " "'  I wonder if the Mail intends to offer'  an insult to the Labor Party by  mentioning ,I. M. Kc'.lie as a po������ible  ���������Labor candidate. "' Mrr-^Kellie���������has'al^  ways been a very consistent, old parly,  capitalist politician and no doubt has  ever worked foi- the private interest of  -Mr. Kellie instead of working in the  public interest, for which he was  I'lccled and paid, ft i* not. likely that  Air. Kellie would change his spot*, in so  short, a time as lo make a good Labor  representative. Can Mr. Kellie prove  a single inslance where he has not  favored by bis vote in parliament all  special privilege schemes and the  heaviest pushers for self aggrandise  mi-tit at the public expense.  Now you members of the Lihernl  association, you who dominate that  association, you who delight in selling  tn the wage earners his own product^  at live times the price he received in  wagt'H for producing them, aud brintr-  ing them to their own door, you who  meet in secret council in y.-ur Boaids  of Trade and petition gov. i-nments for  special laws in the 0coiMineicial iu-  teres's, you who confer together fixing  J it-ices of the necessaries ol life in  Jnn ids of Trade, a nd uutt-Mc blandly  proclaim that "coiupetitiun is the life  ot tiail."," we have learned to know  you. We know lhe gUd band cf  com mere'al IriemUhip. and tie  chui-chly smile of good will' before  elections. Thank you "Mail." I hop*  the laboring men will develop sufficient backbone to stand alone and not  again place themselves in the power,  of the first political hack Lhat pieaeuts  himself.  Onk ok the Labor Paktv.  In some states of Australasia railway employees who are discharged  have a right to take their case before  an appeal board, which is composed of  representee practical railroad men.  who review the case and give their  decisions, making allowances for  circumstances which can not even be  explained to men who have not had  actual experience under tlie trying  circumstances which often confront  the man actually in service. The  decision of the appeal board is final  and often reverses the decision of the  ollicials who discharged the employee.  In such cases thc man is reinstated,  with full pay for the time he has been  idle.���������Railway Employes Journal.

WHEN THE SKY FALLS-  The New Denver Ledge hit a prominent nail squarely on thu head the  other day in the following reniaujts :  "Why are these reform parties so  shortlived 'i OrgaAzationu under the  name ot Socialism come and go like  periods of depression and prosperity.  They seldom live long enough to get  out of the primary stage. Is it because they so ciiiicUljT accomplish their  ends ? Not at all. The men that go  to make up the rank and file of these  new parties are not a whit more  patriotic than the rank and file of the  old parties. They join the new movement because it in new, and they think  they see in it a pa'nacea i'or all ills  that the body politic is heir to, and  they have an idea that in the cure of  the body politic their own lif������ of toil  will somehow, they know not how, be  made easier. But all reforms are  brought about by sacrifice*!, and if a.  man is unwilling to make the sacrifices,  he very quickly becomes tired of tho  new party and drifts.back into the bed  of lout energy and bobs about with the  crowd. Socialism means the betterment of mankind. But.no betterment  can be lasting that does not come  through the individual.^ Mankind can  be bettered only by mau bettering  himself���������intellectually, morally, spiritually. Any other betterment is  transitory. This means individual  ���������ft'ort, individual sacrifice, and if men  are too indolent to better themselves  tinder one political party they will not  under another."  Socialism is in the air. "Itis coming.'*  That iv the expression. It is to bring  in its train a state of society a la  Bellamy's "Looking Backward," the  "Uncle Toms' Cabin"' of the new  movement. AVe are all to be in the  enjoyment of a comfortable income,  no man more and no man less than  his neighbor, science is to convert  every city, country town and village  into a paradise on earth, and existence  is to be one long round of enjoyment,  ���������without a-\vorr-y-or-care.^_.ThiSi-is all.  "to come." In the meanwhile labor  is to^go on extracting the highest  possible wage out of reluctant capital,  everybody of the right kind is to back  it up in its efforts and incidentally  assist labor to get a slap at capital by  ���������iabor'\legislation or any other scheme  that seems feasible.  On the other hand however, we are  all also in duty bound to try and  induce this same capital to take hold  and develope the resources of the  country, so nn to give lots of work and  create plenty of business. In one  -column of tbe self same newspaper  you will read a string of extracts from  socialistic literature at 81.50 a hundred  and a sympathpticaccount nf asocialist  meeting and what Comrade whathis-  name said and how Comrade whnlyou-  ma'ycallhim was elected secretary and  in another yon will notice a glowing  account of the rich prospects to be  found up Grizzly Bear Canyon and ;an  -editorial lament lhat capital lias not  so far seen its way to furnish railway  connection with that rich mineral  section. Tbe idea seems to he that  this curious combination of struggle  and dependence is to last until the  ownership of the public facilities and  natural resources of thu continent has  become so limited, that al! the government will have to do is to say to a  couple of hundred or so of multimillionaires, "hand over" and then the  ���������socialistic era will dawn. The growth  of the settled belief that this is what  is  going   to   happen   ia   called   by   a  curious     misnomer,   thn.    Socialistic  "movement,"  The English and fierniiiii reforineis  waiting until the college of cardinals  advised the pope to inaugurate the  desired reforms in doctrine and discipline; Cromwell and his Ironsides  calmly tilling their farms in the  expectation that bye and bye Clarendon and Strall'ord would induce King  Charles to give the people of England  a constitutional government; these  would be parallel cases to this modern  idea of a movement.' Hundreds and  thousands of men and women and  little children have given their money,  their ease, their personal liberty,  their blood, theii- lives, their nil I'm  the sake nf a religion-; conviction or  the cause of .political freedom. BuL  for this material paradise to whijih  Socialism points the way men arc  content to wait. They dn not. say wc  will win it at any cost. They say " t  will come." But it will nevci runic- in  that easv fashion.  S YSTEM FED ERA Tl ON.  System Federation is thu title, by  which fhe ltailroad Trainmen's  Journal for December calls the latest  plan for combining the forces of the  railway brotherhoods for the redress  of    reasonable    grievances. Kach  organization is to preserve its  autonomy. To quote the Grand Chief  of the O. R. C. "It handles its own  affairs up to a point, wliere it can go  no further without resorting to a  strike. It can then call upon the  employes representative of other  organizations for their counsel, advice  and support." The federated board  sifts the complaint and if it is found  reasonable and fair, the board consisting of representatives of the other  brotherhoods in the employ of the  purticular company in question makes  every effort to arrive at a settlement  by force of. argument, with all the  added weight of an impartial judgement on the point at issue, and, it  may be added, with all the increased  strenght which the entrance of the  allied brotherhoods on the scene must  imply. " The Herald believes the  scheme has many advantages as  against the other proposition i'or an  actual amalgamation of all the railway unions in one. Nothing the  brotherhoods have obtained need bo  abandoned and a definite plan for  concerted action, when such is really  necessary, will be attained.  MODERN METHODS.  Speaking editorially of llu* reappointment of Mr. Hays as manager  of the G. T. R. the .Mail-Umpire   snys:  "With the beginning of Mr. Hay's  regime six years ago the Grand Trunk  entered upon the most brilliant peried  in its history. Of course, a favorable  change in its fortunes must in any case  have been incidental to the great outburst of national prosperity that began about the same time and has continued ever since. But if that prosperity helped to swell the earnings of  the road irrespective of management,  it also presented new problems Lo task  the resources of a manager. How wns  the increase in traffic to be provided  for at least cost? Under Mr. Hays,  indeed, it may be said that the Grand  Trunk became a promoter of the   gen  eral prosperity. Industries were encouraged at placee like Midland by  reasonable freight rates. To facilitate  traffic grades were reduced, steel  bridges took the place of less stable  structures, heavier rails were put down  over a great mileage, terminals were  improved, bigger engines were put on,  larger trains hauled, and trips were  made in greatly reduced tune. Soon  after Mr. Hays took affairs in hand  the period of net revenue deficiencies  came to an end.' In 1&0S there was a  surplus from which dividends were  paid on the 4* per cent, guaranteed  stock r.nd on the first perfcrence  stock.  Notice.

A TRjiNSCONTINENTA.L     %  SWITCHBACK.  It was a gold brick all right enough.  IL dues not lnku much critical acid to  disclose its wortlilessiiess. Mackenzie & jMnim are two very well  known railway contractors. Tliey  are credited with being a pair oi  particularly shrewd and hard hum-led  business men. Hues anybody really  suppose that they wero ever persuaded  by Mr. Wells or anybody i*l������o to queer  their whole scheme of lhe construction of tho shortest route between  Great Britain and the Orient, by  winding it up in sueh'a switchback a>-  their new alleged route from Quesnelle to Victoria would' be. They  would have-to go quite as far. if not  further, to get from Qmisnelle to  Victoria than to reach their original  objective at Lhe mouth of the Skeena,  they would have to double back l.lli  mill's to make Victoria from the  Seymour narrows* .'ind then they  would be at Victoria one whole 'lay's  stciim further east thiin they would be  at Lhe Skeena. A day mean's a whole  lot in reaching 011L for Ir.-iii.-L-oiiLiiK-iil-  al traffic, lt means a great deal more,  ono may depend upon if, than Mackenzie A: Mann will ever give even in  order lo clinch llie Victoria seal with  bands of steel to the bosom of th������  present provincial administration.  To some minds this may be considered  the paramount issue of tlio hour.
