Imped lbe mailer will he hulked Into,
nml soiue acl inn laken by t he government at the forthcoming session of the
provincial legislature.
Nut alone iu British Columbia is the
ipieslion of placing grealei restrictions
uu the promotion of mining incorporation, lining given attention, as it would
seem it is pussilile a hill may be introduced in the legislature uf the State uf
Washington, having fur its object llie
charging of a higher fee for tlle registration of a conipiiny than is at present
exacled, the fee lo depend upon the
amount of the capitalization of tin.
company. Fur instance, if a company
is capitalized at a ligtire mil exceeding
$1110.01X1 a fee uf ,$111 wuuld be charged,
and If over this auioiint an additional
charge of 10 cents per thousand is proposed, Under Ihis rale it would rust
$100tu register articles of incorpura-
lion for a company capitalized at
$1,01X1,0011. A very similar proposition
is lieing entertained in this province
and as ninny, more particularly uniting
the investing public, seem lo favor
such a proposition, nodolthtlhe mat ier
will he a subject for legislation at lbe
next silling of lhe provincial legislature, Should British Columbia and
Ihe State of Washington adopt such
legislation, it would main a tax of $201)
upon any company Incorporated with
a capital nf $1,000,1X10 lieing registered
in the state and province. Such a
course if adopted would certainly
enrich tlie ceffurs of the governments
iu question, but as to whether It would
furnish an effectual check to Ihe promoters of wild cat mining incorporations, witli gigantic capital, is open to
doubt. Our opinion is ils deterrent
effect would be hardly perceptible, and
to cure llie evil we would suggest olher
nnd more restrictive legislation.
What is the matter wilh our contemporary, tlie Boundary Creek
Times? In a recent issue of the Times
a letter appeared over lbe signature
" Mark of Interrogation," which, as
explained in our last issue, east, severe
relied ions upon officials having charge
.if government offices in this district.
The Times published a letter which it
knew would damn certain officials in
lhe estimation of the people, and yet,
neither al the time of publication nor
since, has it consented to take notice
of the anonymous epistle. Wherefore
this silence? Is it the outcome ofa
conspiracy hotween lhe publishers of
llie Times ami parties having a fancied
grievance against the officials iu (pies,
lion, or are we lo believe that the
Times hy its silence endorses lhe
strictures and accusations made a galusl

Is Filed.
The following is an account which
appeared iu t be issuenf the Spokesman-
Review nf the aiih January, relative
lb llu. M.'Kiiiimn rase. By it. it will
lie siti lliere is a .pussibilily uf lhe B,
(j, aiithuili a ba*.lUK tq wait some
lime before repaining possession of
McKinnni), whn is so badly wanted in
the province. The Hrst paragraph is
Hot accurate, lis'll was not upon coin-
plaint uf Officer Simmons thnt Mc-
Kiniion was Hrst arrested. The whole
account, however, lends to show how j
badly the case is becoming mixed op,
and how obstacles are being thrown in
tlie way of extradition, owing to a lack
of systematic proceedings intelligently
directed. Charging a mini willi cattle
stealing and then trying to extradite
bun for jail breaking is not jusl quite
the proper course lo take. Ultimately
no doubt McKiniion will be brought
back, as more charges than one have
been proven against him, that is if flic
expected dues nut happen, viz., Ilis
breaking mil of the Spokane jail, which
is recognized as out being by any
means a safe place to keep prisoners:
Spokesman-Review: The McKliinun
extradition case lias produced aunther
puzzle. John McKiniion was arrested
un complaint of K. C. Simmons, a constable in lhe service ol her Britannic
majesty, the Queen uf Ureal Britain
and Empress nf India, un the charge of
stealing callle frum Cornelius O'Keefe
al Vernon, B. C. Incidentally he was
accused uf breaking jail. Extradition
proceedings were cuuiniencedi involving correspondence tlin.ugh lhe capitals of bulb governments, in lbe
itieatilime a question arose as to Mr.
Simmons' authority.
A writ uf habeas, corpus was applied
for liy Attorney A. I,. Grotty of Seal lie,
aud United Slates Marshal Drake was
lequired by older of cuurt lu sliuw
cause in the federal court ill Senile,
January 25, why he held McKiniion in
custody. The result is cxpluintd in
the following telegram to the Spokes*
mau-lteyii.w i
'■Seattle, Jan. 23.—At. the request uf
defendant's attorney, Jutnes L. Crnlty,
Fedeial Judge Haufocd In-day post-
polled the hearing of llie writ uf habeas
corpus in the caseuf John McKinnun,
now iu jail at Spokane, ami wanted at
Vernon, B. C, fur larceny in stealing,
as alleged, fuur head nf callle, linlil
the April term of the United Stales
district court iu Spokane, Crotly
slated to llie cuurt that tiie Brilisli authorities were in reality trying to extradite McKiniion for jail-breaking,
and nol larceny, as set forth, McKiu-
iii.ii, it .appears, broke out of the Vernon jail."
Simultaneously with I he proceedings
at Seattle, E, 0, Simmons appeared
before United Slates Court Commissioner Kenyuit of Spokatie and tiled a
new complaint against John McKiniion, tie showed lo the commissioner
that lle had leceiyed Ihe requisite
authorization as agent fm the government of the Pruvince of Brilisli Co-
huuhia to act in lliu mailer, ln this
complaint McKiniion is charged with
participation in the Mulraiiey steer
stealing. Tlie prisoner was brought
over from llie county jail and arraigned
and the case was set for hearing next
Saturday. R, W. Nuzuiu bus been retained as attorney for the government
of Bri'ish Columbia. Attorney Grotty
bits been notified liy wire of lhe new
phase of the case and is expected to
take part iu Saturday's proceedings
unless ihe authorities agree that Judge
lliinford's order pustponiiig tlle case
until the April term must lake precedence.
Pending all ihese technical proceedings, John McKiniion is looking out
upnu the world through the burs of
lhe Spokane county jail with a cold,
glittering stare, To all curious questioners be replies lhat be is iu the
hands nf his attorneys nod friends. He
denies that he stole the cattle, notwithstanding the testimony of the
stipendiary magistrate that he found a
calf's hide that had heen partly drugged
out by dogs from under McKinniiti's
In thenpinionnf disinterested lawyers
McKiniion will remain in Ihe .spukane
jail until Judge Haiifurd can hear the
case in April.

Are we to suppose frum lliis Ihal those
about to apply fur charters are filled
witli a patriotic desire lo see the
country developed and progress and
prosperity go band iu haud ? Or, are
they only anxious to gal bold of trans-
pollution facilities uf (lie country, in
order thul l.y having the power to dictate rales, lhey mny enrich themselves, mil caring win. sinks or who
swims, so long ns thev make money
mil uf the enterprise7
Railway construct inn is very nice,
Mr, Kilitor, hul when the ml I way becomes ii melius of drawing the surplus
cash nut nf Ihc counlry, through ov
torlionate rates and charges, ii would
l.e altogether the l.isrsl cuurse lo continue I he pack-horse and freight-wagon
and keep the money we make In ihe
country. How long will il he before
the eyes of the peuple nre open In the
fact that the railway is a necessary
part ofllie machinery fnr the development uf a cuunlry's resources, and
shuuld be owned and winked by lhe
country, and nut by nn outside company, whose sulc object is to make
all the ninney lhey can squeeze nnl of
lhe country, using tlie railway as a
lever fur llial. purpose? What would
you thing of farmers tiud ininers wlio
wnnlil give lu a number nf individuals
the right lo charge them nny price
they saw lit fnr Ihe use of implements
and tools used in their uceupatinns?
How lung would ii be befure they wen*
liiiukrup! 'I Production is unly half
the prneess uf turning natural Wealth
inlo money; before this can be dune
it must be ciitried lu consumers, aud
this part, of llie wurk is bunded over to
a private company, ivhnse charges
make farming and much uf ure mining
unprofitable. This iu turn hinders the
development of our resources and
cripples industry, and isa chief factor
iu bringing nn and continuing hard
times and business depression. The
plea that the cnuntry could nnl afford
tn build railroads, will nut, do. Who
pays interest ou bonds, cosl of operation, and all the lung list uf costs thai
is included in lbe management and
carrying ouofa railway ciituliiniillull,
if lbe people dn nnl ? And all these
charges are made without any consideration for the people who must pay
Ihem, and whilst* living nnd litlslltets
is seriously affected by such charges,
Nor will the argument ihal the government could uut run the road do, government ownership ut' railroads on the
cuntiiieiit of Eliropi'i and inunieipnl
ownership of electric light, water
works, tramways, etc., in ulher parts
of the civilized world, abundantly
proves lhat railways and works of
public utility can be nut nut only
without loss, but iit ii profit lu ihc
A great deal can be said on litis subject; whal. i.s wanted is fair play, and
only when producers nf minerals and
producers uf lhe necessaries uf llfo get
fair treatment in regard to transportation, will they reap llio full benrIii of
llieir enterprise and work, and unly
when lhey get what is justly Iheir due
will developinenl and producl ion at
uur mines and on uur farms huve free
cuurse and enrich Ihose who are tlie
builders of their country's fortunes,
