The Strike Situation.
Fkrnik, March 25,—The miners' nmcting called hy the conciliation committee for this
morning, was fairly well attend-
j ed, Tlie chairman-, John Keen,
' reviewed their work from tho
start to the present deadlock.
Mr. Gaunce, secretary to the
committee, in an eloquent address, clearly showed the false
position the men were placing
themselves in. He pointed out
that 101 men in the three camps
voted for acceptance and 338
against, while the remainder of
the 1,3(13 men in the employ of
the coal company, did not vote.
jo also showed that 18 of the
lowest paid mon tho executive
could find, had under oath,
given evidence from which it
appeared that their net average
daily earnings amounted to
$3.70.
Chris Foley made a vigorous
speech. He spoko strongly
against tho influence of agitators. The union, he claimed, had
got the recognition they wanted,
and he believed in regard to the
other details, that tho settlement was tho best possible under the circumstances. Their
repudiation of their executive
board, he said, would be a blow
at unionism all over the province.

Mr. Flumerfelt showed the
widespread effect of the strike
and the necessity of an immediate settlement to save their
brother unionists in the Boundary country, who were on the
point tif being discharged. His
•emarks evidenced a keen interest in the welfare of the
workingmen.
The secretary of the local union, in reply, tried to upset some
of tho arguments of the former
speakers. He said the miners
wore going to settle the question
themselves and not the conciliation committee or the district
executive, aud he urged the men
to oppose the acceptance of the
terms.
.Others present also addressed
the meeting.
All tho members of the executive committee aud the conciliation commission and George
Dougherty, president of district
No. 6, W. F. M„ were on the
platform.
The feeling of the men seem-
in accordance with yos-erday's
vote. The speakers wore given
a fair hearing, but there was
very little applause.
Figures of the votes polled
at the throe camps are:

Michel    71 00
The  conciliation commission
will likely leave hero on Friday.
Hope of  settling the strike
has by no menus been abandoned either  by   the conciliation
committee,   headed  by    John
Keen, or by the officers of the
W.F. M.   Chris   Foley, Harry
Seaman, of Rossland, president
Dougherty, and the indefatigable John Keen are all working
hard and seem to bo of the opinion that as soon as the miners
can bo   got. to understand tho
true aspects   of tho   situation
thoy will bo willing to be bound
hy the action of tho executive.
The trouble would seom to be
that tho majority cf  the non-
English element, new  to    tho
country, is hardly  able  to  ap-
1 predate either the  true  condi-
I tions or the   methods of ap-
I proilch applied in this country.
It is expected, however, that tho
opposition, which chiefly arises
from undue suspicion, will be
removed.
C. P. R. Has Another Grievance,
Montreal, March   23—Tho
lumber situation has assumed a
peculiar  aspect  in   the Northwest Territories.   With the arrival of the first settlors dealers
are reported   to have   shoved
prices.up to exhoi'bitantfigures,
1). McNicoll, second vice-president and  general   manager   of
thi!   Canadian   Pacific    says:
The situation has    become so
serious that the  Canadian  Pacific has written the territorial
government  asking   them   to
look into it.   Early in January,
realizing the   difficulty   there
might bo to got sufficient lumber into the country for all settlers that would arrive during
the present year, the Canadian
Pacific tried to get   as   many
dealers as possible to bring all
the lumber they could   handle
into the country.   To facilitate
matters      in     some     instances  oven   financial   assistance
was given and   a  reduction in
freight rates was made for lumber into tbe Territories.   Notwithstanding this   the  dealers
have announced an advance in
price just as though they were
not benefitted by the reduction
in rates.   Such action may  do
much harm.   The  railway has
done all it can, and wo can bring
into the country all the lumber
that is   needod.   We   consider
that the     Territorial    govt rn-
mant     should look   Into     the
situation and see what action
should   be   taken   against the
British Columbia dealers, who
liandle   nearly nil  the lun'ffier
shipped ink) tho Territories."

jhotiiiod by
wire yesterday to discontinue
the sale of stock until otherwise ordered.
1). It. Young, managing director, thinks that the work recommended by Mr. Blakemore' to
more fully prove tiie extent, of
the coal measures will take
about three or four weeks and
for that period at least do further sale of stock will be authorized.
Montreal parties are uow negotiating for a bond upon tho
syndicates's Okanagan coal
lands. The figure quoted is
$35,000. It is expected that a
final decision in this matter will
be arrived at in the course of a.
or two.—Nelson Daily

More Senators ior ihe West.
Ottawa, March 23.-The redistribution bill will likely be
introduced about the end of
tbis week. It will nol lie referred to judges. Parliament will
deal with it as in past.years. It,
is probable "that ten members
will be given to the northwest.
At present the northwest has
four. There is population just
now for ten. An effort will also bo made to increase the representation of the west iu tho
senate, ft is thought that Manitoba, the northwest and British
Columbia should have 24 senators, the same as the niaratjino
provinces. This matter will be
laid before the government,
C. P. R. Car Shor.age.
The C. P. R. ear shortage
quest iml has been taken up by
the Briiish Columbia branch of
the Canadian Manufacturers'
Association. It has lieen
thought of such importance
, that a request has been made
to attend a joint banquet tend-11() tlie government at Ottawa.
The C. P. R.    acknowledges
Favors a Subsidy.
Toronto,   March   23.—Hon.
Raymond Prefontaine and  .Sir
William Mulock arrived in this
city this morning from Ottawa
■red them at  McConkey's to
night by the Young Men's Liberal Club and the Laurier Club.
The postmaster-general made
the speech of the evening.   Ho
pleaded justification fora bonus
to the Grand Trunk Pacific  or
any line of railway projected to
bind together eastern and western      Canada,    and    running
through tho  as  yet   unsettled
10,000 miles in northern Ontario.
Such a railway, he said, would
be entitled to public aid because
it would help to build up Canadian nationality by  providing
an all-Canadian   route for the
output of the western provinces.
Tho fact that this  line   from
Winnipeg to Quebec would be
much shorter than to  Boston.
Portland,  New   York   or any
other Atlantic port was emphasized, as was also the   need of
this question   before the trade
settled  down   into   American
channels.   Sir   William   noted
the incapacity of theO P, Ii. and
C. N. R. to handle even the present output, and   the   need    to
provide transportation facilities
advancing with the  advancing
tide   of   immigration   was, in
opinion, imperative.
Stock Withdrawn from Sale.
The directors of the Ashnola
Smelter, Limited, have received
tho report on their Rock Creel
coal property from Wm. Blake
more, M. E, The report full;,
confirms their confidence i
that property as a future coa
and coke producer. In fact, s:
well pleased aro they with whal
Mr. Blakemore had to tell then
of the extent and quality of th
coal measures, that they havi
decided to withdraw all stoc
from the market pending flu
carrying out of certain reconi
inundations   as to dovelpinenl
that there    is a  shortage, but
say that it is owing to the Foi 11-
ie strike situation, which    has
compelled them to  press every
available car    into   service to
supply   the   shortage   in   fuel.
Thus cars that would otherwise
be used for tlie shingloand lumber   manufactures were  being
utilized for carrying coal ar.d
coke.   The   question   of     car
shortage, however, seems to  bo
a question   that   the mill men
have  periodically    t.i contend
with, and it was   thought  that
the question had bel ter he taken
up at once and pressure brought
to bear on the C. P. R. from Ottawa with a view of   iuducing
the railroad company to niakea
special   effort   lo   remedy   the
matter.
The Elkhorn.
The Elkhorn mine is showing
up well, and is now sharing
public attention with the neighboring Providence mine,
srs. Jas. Sutherland and
McDonald, who have lhe property under a working bond, are
jetting out some high-grade
ore from a drift run both ways
on the vein at the SO-ft. level.
Values are in both gold and silver, and beautiful specimen oao
is frequently met with, the general run of the ore promising
jimeltor returns that will leave
a good margin of profit. A carload shipment will shorlly bo
made.

THE LIBERAL LEADERSHIP
There appears to he   a little
difficulty in tho Liberal party in
British Columbia, a question of
Leadership.    Hon. Joseph Martin stye:-, himself leader   of the
liberal  party,  but   there   aro
doubts about whether tho convention that chose him as leader was a truly  representative
one.   If it wdre not, thoft there
should be  another  convention
at which every city, town, village and district would bo represented, if  they   so    desired.

,i-' rami i • tlie unorganized
pOri ions of the province as a
kind of side show to sohie

Reverting to the questioil of
leadership the liberal party
should bo wis ■ enough to treat
Hon. ,)'.;::<;>!] Martin fairly in
this delicate matter. No cliquo
should lie allowed to get in their
deadly work, who for other
than party reasons may wish
to (lepjujo him'. Mr, Martin has
stated that if tho liberals in
Convention assembled choiue
some other person he will submit to thoir choice and give it
his support.   A truly represent-
court has just ruled that thoir
('.institutional rights are not violated by thoir detention.   Sonu
of tho iiiebriates don't liko to be
slr.it up, but the treatment thoy
get   seems to be humane and
salutary.   Their liquor is stopped, and they have to work on
farms, and are encouraged  to
improve   their   habits.   When
they seem to be cured they aro
discharged, nnd    report   say '■
that, so far, about 75 por  cent.'
of tho cases  have  so  resulted.'
Ibis seems like excellent management  of  drunkards.    Men
who cannot, or will not, control
their thirst ought not to be left
at large to get themselves and
otlrw   Ip.to i-lsehi'f.   Neither
should thoy bo sent to jail.   If
thoy are irresponsible   because
of    their   propensities,     they
should   be looked  Sifter   until
they aro cured,  and   while under  restraint  they  should bc
made to work for thoir living.
An easy, legal method of securing timely periods of sqcluaioi)
for unmanageable drunkards is
what this country wants, aud iu
ought to make for tiie peace oi
fnm'.i'.e.i and the diminution of
drunkoimoss.     Men   have   no
moral right to be drunken.   1
they have demonstrated a dangerous   und coat'mucus lack of

The school where thorough work is clone; where the reason
is always given; where coi fi • rce is developed ; where BoOK-
kkki'ING is taught exactly as books are being kept in business;
where Shorthand is scientific; where penmanship is at its
best; where merit is the standard : where the training in Civil. ServicI'., Tklkcrav-hy, English and Cartoon'ino wakes up
students, develops their powers and teaches them howto be
successful. No argument is so eloquent as the record of
things well done. No mortgage can •• upt, no thief can
break through and steal the knowledge of How to Do. When
you know what a school can do for you by what it bas done for
others is it better to trust to luck? Is it wiser to guess?
