The Crow's Nest Coal Company Will
Likely Receive Charter.
Interesl is gradually growing more
keenas the time approaches for the
House to decide as to the policy that
Ib going to he taken regarding the
granting of a charter to the (Vow's
NestCoalCompany to huild a line from
Fernie to the Boundary hue, hut so
genet'tl is the desire of the people of
this Province to grant the charier lhat.
it, dues not seem as if the Legislature
could very well dn otherwise than
allow the conipany the privilege of
huilding, more especially when no
suhsidy is asked.
It is reported that tlte question has
heen considered of such importance
that the premier has decided to abandon his trip lo Australia in order to
be present when the question conies before the House and see it through.
Not only is it the opinion of the
people of this Province lhat the charter slinulil lie granted, bul. the people of
the Kast.iis well.look upon itas necessary
to the prosperity of Southern British
Thc Ottawa correspondent of the
Toronto Star in writing his paper regarding the matter says:
The opposition press through
out the country wasquitesiiretha1. the
premier should gn to Australia. They
brought Greek gifts to him every lawful uiorning of publication, saying he
was the right man to go, owing to his
indisputable eloquence, owing lo the
part, he played in the jubilee, but especially because he Is premier of these
confederated colonies, The press
urged the premier; the opposition
looked friendly and weak to the
point of foolishness—an nppnxiiinn
that noliody need fear to expose one's
l>ark io. And yet Sir Wilfrid did not
go. Theje is one reason for it, if not
two. A certain reason is the premier's
inherit dislike for the long journey
and the protracted ceremonials at ihe
other end of if. The second, or what
may fairly lie guessed to be a supple
mental y reason, is the coining up of
the \fery important question as to.
whether the Crow's Nest Coal Company shall he allowed to huild a line of
railway to haul its coal across the
boundary line. This is an important
question. It is understood that iu regard tn it members of the cabinet are
not agreed, that supporters of the
government are divided just as leaders
of the opposition are not agived and
as their followers are divided. It will
not lie a party question, hut its importance to Ihe country is nnq.ieu-
lioned. The premier is no doubt anxious to see Ihe thing through, Hols
by long odds the strongest personal
influence iu parliament, and everybody here knows it, despite I he election nonsense talked about Mr. Tarte
being "master of the ndminstnitinii,"
"The minister of public Works is a
man of considerable influence owing
to bis great sagacity and many like-
aide qualities, the chief nf wliieh is
that he is a thoroughbred, and never
says "die," but Sir Wilfrid Laurier is
and always has been master of this
adminstration. Here in Ottawa, on
Ihe spot, the election talk intended to
create another impression is con
sidered amusing.
There will be a warm time over that
railway hill, although those who' advocate it are unable to see bow any
body opposing it can face the country and justify their course. These
men ask nothing hut the right to go
ahead and do for themselves, at their
own expense, what their Interests require, making any bargain that is
deemed necessary to ensure that the
coal consumers of the Canadian West
are not injured. If their coal mines
were so situated that they had water
communication with the American
market, they need ask nobodyV consent, hut could build hoals and carry
coal to whoever might wish lo purchase it. No objection would lie
raised, nor obstacles put in the way.
lf their mines were so near the boundary that they could build a chute and
export the coal in ihat way there
would not now be a light in prospect,
The compiny to-day i.s free enough to
carry roal across the boundary in
wagons or in wheelbarrows, or to ship
it by O. P. R. to Vancouver and from
there shower It In unlimited quantities
upon any market in the world In which
it can dud a footing. Looking at the
case in this practical way, it is seen
that ll is purely a O. P. II. opposition
lhat exists against the granting nf a
charter to a road to cany coal south
in the Only cheap way known. There
is also to he reckoned on that essentially human tendency on the part nf
some to resist anything thai will seem
to benelit other^persons."
The Imperial Limited.
The Moiit.ieal Gazette says :   "New
equipment is being constructed In the
Canadian Pacific Hallway company's
local shops, and other material is lieing
»    .
refurnished for service on the Imperial
Limited train which will go on schedule on June 10, and Hubert Kerr,
passenger traffic manager of the system, says: 'We may be ahle to cut
the time down some between Montreal
and Vancouver. We will he on deck
for business as usual, and baye everything In goml shape.'"
Speaking nf the oul look for transcontinental husiness this season, Mr, Kerr
said ; "We are expecting this year
several large parties of tourists from
England, who will he conducted over
the continent under out- Supervision,
and also i xpeel that many will visit
Ihe newly opened resorts in the Yoho
Valley, where Edward Whymper, the
eminent mountaineer, will continue
his explorations. Reports from our
agents abroad would indicate that the
Kitropi an immigrant business, particularly from Norway and Sweden, will
be very favorable. In addition to this
there should be more than the usual
quota from England, Ireland and Scotland."     "
King's Kindly Act.
The King has bestowed an unusual
token of recognition of service upon
Sir Ponsonhy Fane, a lifelong officer
of Queen Victoria's household. The
recipient of the King's favor, who is
broken down hy old age, and is retiring to private life, was summoned to
Marlborough House, where the King,
in a few simple phrases of thanks for
his loyalty to his mother, presented
him with the cane with which Queen
Victoria walked for 30 years. The old
man's relatives say lhat if tbe King
had mised bim to a dukedom he could
not so havii kindled his pride or touched his heart.

An Appeal.
To the Wnrkinguien of British Columbia ;
A bill is now hefore the Provincial
Legislature asking for the increase of
the pi esent $11 revenue tax to $5. This
falls as a direct tax upon labor, and
should ant he tolerated for an instant
hy the workingmen of this Province.
We have already suffered long, and
submitted patiently to the many indignities thrust upon us liy bungling
legislators In the past, and now patience has ceased to be a virtue.
We bave heen deprived of just representation in the Legislature, this
same revenue tax has very often lieen
taken from us by stealth, by drawing
our wages to the amount, without our
consent or knowledge. And worst of
all, while our heads have lieen bent in
toll, the nubile domain has been stolen
frnm us in large quantities by charter
mongers and company promoters,
thieves in collusion wilh the men
whom we foolishly trusted to guard
our interests. Let us rise in our might
and put a stop to this sort of thing at
once and forever. We can do it in
this way. If I his bill is defeated In Ihe
House, well and good ; don't forget
the members who opposed it, they will
be deserving of the support of the people nt the next election. If tbe bill is
carried, ua it is likely to he, then this
appeal is a call lo action. A copy is
being sent to every constituency in Ihe
Province that it is possible to speedily
reach, and you are urged to call puhlic
meetings in each riding, pass resolutions condemning the Act, and ask fur
its repeal. Many of the members will
have voted against it, and th.*y would
have their hands strengthened hy such
resoliit ions. To I hose who voted for it
we can only say, it is time that you
found out that you are only our servant*, and if we say so you must repeal this Act or be dismissed, just the
same as any servant who refuses to do
his master's request. We claim it is
lietter for the few to swallow their
pride than for the whole Province to
he bound in the bonds of iniquity.
There are a few good men in every
constituency whom this appeal will
call to arms, like a bugle to the battle
Held. Do not wait, but go ahead and
call a puhlic meetii g in the most populous centre ; get a few live speakers
from among yourselves, and present
Ihe question fairly In the people.
Have resolutions passed condemning
the Act, and call upon the member or
members for that dislrict to urge and
vote for the repeal of the Act. If it is
possible, aud in accord with public
sentiment, pass an additional resolution asking him or them to advocate
a tax of three or five per cent per annum upon the present selling value of
lhe land, including mineral, wilh periodic valuations. This is a just method
of raising puhlic revenue, and has
made New Zealand the most prosper
ous country in all the earth, Fellow
workmen, brothers, arise I, Do not let
this thing pass unnoticed, or we will

imposed taskmasters. It is In our

Another Beautiful Production From
the Bureau of Publicity of the
Pan-American at Buftalo.   ■
We are In receipt of a beautiful booklet from the Bureau of Publicity of the
Pan-American Exposition, Buffalo, N.
Y. It consists of 10 pages and a cover
In light green. The unique feature of
it is the miniature reproduction of ihe
famous poster, "The 8pirit, of Nia*
gara," Which has had a most remarkable demand. The envelope in which
the postei booklet is mailed also bears
a reproduction of this artistic work.
The booklet is a popular picture book,
the first page having an engraving of
the magnificent Electric Tower, which
is 391 feet high, and which will form
the glorious center-piece nf the great
Exposition. On the same page is a
miniature of one of thn torch bearers
which will adorn the wings of the
Electric Tower, and beside it a picture
of Niagara Falls. The second page.
shows a picture of Ibe Electricity
Building and live other small illustrations of the uses of electricity. The
third page shows tbe splendid gioupof
buildings erected by the National Government and which will contain the
Oovernnient exhibits, also live miniature illustrations, one of them showing
the life-saving station, where exhibition! will be given daily hy a picked
crew of ten men, during Ihe Exposition. The fourth page is devoted tn
the wonderful displays of government
ordnance ; the fifth to the Machinery
and Transportation Building and four
other Illustrations of modern machines
and vehicles. The centre of the hook-
let shows a biidseye view of the Exposition, :uul gives nno some idea ol t>ba

ever been prepared for Exposition visitors. The last page shows a ground
plan nf the Exposition, whereon the
(■.nation of different buildings is indicated. The railroads will make low
rates from all parts nf the country
during Hie Exposition, which opens
May 1 and continues six months, and
the people of Buffalo are preparing to
entertain comfortably the millions
who will attend. Anyone desiring a
copy of this booklet may hnve it free

To Divide the Territories.
A Calgary paper of a recent date
has the following despatch from Ottawa i "It is stated here authoritatively
that as soon as the census returns are
all in from the Territories steps will be
taken to divide the present Northwest
Territories. The proposal is to incorporate all east of the third meridian
with Manitoba and constitute a uew
province of the western portion under
the name of Alberta. The capital uf
the new province will he Calgary."
Mr, Haultain, premier nf the Northwest Territories, when interviewed on
the above, said that he had hopes that
parliament would deal wiih the matter
very soon. Legislation would he impossible this session, hut there was a
greal probability that a definite proposition would be laid before parliament
and the legislature in 1002.
The question of boundaries would be
considered in detail, but, personally, he
said : "I am inclined to the belief that
the events of the lust year nnd n half
in Manitoba will make the addition of
any part of lbe Territories to Manitoba
He added that the population of
Manitoba when made a province was
about the snine as the Alberta voting
list is now. Therefore no objection
could be raised on the score of population.
The Dominion Copper company has
commenced work on the Idaho, one of
the company's properties in Phoenix
ramp. No work has heen done ou the
Idaho for over a year. A new double
compartment shaft has been started
almut 200 feel, west of the old one,
whieh Frank Holhins, the late superintendent., started and sunk to it depth
of 60 feel. The company intends to
work actively on the Idaho and put it
on a shipping basis as soon as possible.
Power to do this will he furnished
from the new ten-drill coin pressor
plant, which has been ordered, when
it arrives and is set, up.
The development on the Stent winder
lo date has been very satisfactory,
Several hundred feet of hand drilling
has shown up some flne nre bodies, at
tho 114 foot level. Until the live-drill
compressor plant arrives and is set up,
the inanagent have laid off the force
which was i'l work on ihis property.

Capt. Beruier, of Quebec, has decided
to make an effort to reach the noith
pole and looks forward with confidence
to accomplishing that achievement.
Capt. Bernier believes he has prepared
him-elf witb a full knowledge of the
ilinirulties to lie overcome, as will he
seen hy the following paper read hy
him at a meeting of tbe Royal Colonial Institute in London recently:
Tbat lbe deep ocean to the north of
Franz .losepb Land has a drift from
ihe Siberian side to the American side
is un established fact, There is a flow
from one hemisphere to the other
This is the explanation of the great
wall of ice to the north of this continent, which Parry could not account
for, and which later explorers bave
come to understand the causes of.
Nansen matured the idea of tbe flow
in the polar ocean, and that from entering the ice from the Siberian side,
a vessel would be drifted over to Green
land. Nansen entered it and was perfectly successful. His voyage proved
that the deep sea he had discovered
continued far to the north, because his
ship came down to the coast of
Spitsbergen. North of the line traversed by Nansen there is an immense
width from Siberia to Greenland,
across which tbe joe drifts. Nansen
did not enter tbe ice far enough north.
Capt. Bernier, hy entering it a gieit
deal nearer to Behring Straits, is confi
dent that he will be carried across this
vast unknown ocean or, a line far en
ougb north of the line along which
Nansen drifted, to enable bim to
reach the Iong-sought-for point whicli
isthe North Pole. He contemplates
entering the ice ahout July, and counts
upon three years heing necessary for
tbe drift to cat ry'him across to the
other side. With bis ship as a basis,
he will, like Nansen, run long dislan
ces with dog trains on the packed ice,
during its proper seasons. Into the
details of his plan it is not necessary to
enter. Guided by tbe experience of
DeLoug. Nansen, Noj-dennkjold, and
bi.Spf Artie expiate^.; be'shows ibat
his confidence of reaching the Pole is
as well bared as such a thing can he.
It is an object to wbicb many live*-
and much treasure have been devoted
in vain, and though the discovery
will lead to scientific results, their val-
'ue can never he worth the heavy
cost which tbey will represent. The
search for the Pole will, nevertheless,
be continued by man until the Pole ia
leached, if such be possible, and Canadians will wish Capt. Bernier success
in his effort to be the man and to
make good Lord Dufferin's claim that
t he North Pole is part of tbe Dominion
of Canada.

Smugglers Captured.
Rossland, March 15.—For some time
pest it has heen suspected by the customs authorities at Northport that
Chinese were coming into Washington via the road which leads from
Rossland to Northport. The customs
authorities conferred with Mr. A. N.Patterson, Ihe Canadian customs officer at Sheep creek station, which is
located a short distance north of the
International boundary line. Mr. Pat*
ersoii reported that be had seen quite
a number of Chinese in that vicinity
recently and advised the American inspectors to secret themselves just
south of the line in some bushes and
that tbey would be certain to catch
some contraband Chinese.
On Thursday night H. Hutchinson,
inspector of customs at Northport, and
Colonel Walker, Chinese inspector
from Seattle, bid themselves in a
place shown them by Mr. Patterson.
They went early in the evening and
as the night was cold tbe vigil was
far from comfortable.
Shortly after midnight four figures
appeared through the darkness and
after glancing furtively around, step
ped gingerly from Canadian to American soil, They had only taken a dozen
or so steps in American territory
when Mr. Hutchinson and Col. Walker
stepped oot from their hiding place
and told the Mongols to throw up
their hands.
The artested Chinese were taken to
Northport. The leader is a Chinaman
who tries to pose as a Japanese. He
bad eut off his queue and let his hair
grow and hy this disguise bas endeavored to pass as a Japanese. He has
>>een seen several times of late around
Northport and itis suspected that he
has piloted a numher of Chinese from
this'city iuto Washington.

Death of Mra. Laaat.
1 On Tueaday morning of last week
lhe residents of Midway and vicinity
*eie shocked lo learn that Mrs. Land-
fer, wife of Arthur J. Lander,  who
■Ives on a ranch a short distance from
lidway, had died the previous evening after giving birth lo a baby girl,
s'hich only lived a short time.   Al*
hough Mrs. Lander's condition was
nsidered precarious fnr several days,
fret as she waa a very strong woman
per many friends had hopes of her re*
overy and her sudden death was a
httrprise to them.   Dr. Foster attended
ner, but his efforts to save her life
wen unavailing.
The late Mrs. Lander waa a daughter
of Jas. Turner, of Dei by, England, and
Iwas married in 1806 to Mr. Lander.
Iln the spring of 1804 the couple moved
Ito Midway, where they have since
[resided on their ranche, a short dis
Stance from town. Mer kind manner
{had won tor her a host of friends, whn
teitend theii earnest sympathy to the
(bereaved husband, who is left with two
motherless children ; sixteen months
The outlook is good for an active
summer's work in these parts. Two
months ago active work »tarted on the
Stemwinder and tbe shaft is going
down rapidly toward the -100 foot level.
Crosscuiting has I een started ou the
third level, and will he repeated on the
fourth is soon as it is gained. Over
2.500 fret of work has lieen done upon
this properly, and 100,000 Ions of ore
has lieen blocked out and is ready for
stuping down above the second level.
There are 5,1'JU tons of ore upon the
dump. The main shaft is double com*
partmentcd. There is every indication
of the vein on the lower levels equalling if not excelling lhe values on the
upper levels. The ore will be treated
upon tbe ground, it l-eing free milling.
The cost of mining and treal tnetrt is
estimated at tX_b per ton, whereas the
values average 15. Until June the
work of development will proceed
when a mill is to lie installed, part of
which ii already on thegiound. The
sinking of the shaft is heing done hetween tbe north and south veins, and
a third body of ore has lieen encountered in the shaft below the third level.
Work is to commenceshorlly on on*
of the Fairview corporation properties.
This is a coal proposition and is situated at the forks of the wagon road t-
Penticton and Camp McKinney from
Fairvie*. The railroad will come
right over this spot. The coal is of j>
fiist-class bituminous quality, and is
regarded by experts as second lo none
in the country, tt bas already heen
used hy tbe mines in lbe vicinity and
in other places. In the same basin
there are 1,000 acres in coal lauds under
bond to an important Eastern syndicate who have had an expert out here
to look over the property.
Great development is heing undertaken at Camp Hedley, half way to
Penticton frvm Keremeos. Tbis is
heing done probably on the report th it
a wagon mad is probable from Hedley
to the Nickel Plate.
The wagon road is heing completed
lo Princeton from Fairview.   On lhe
completion of this Mad it will he p n -
hie logo in a l-ee line from Midway,
via Camp McKinney, Fairview, Kete-
mens and Hedley lo Princeton.   There
remains about eivbt miles to flnisb.and
there are two gangs of men engaged
in the woik.

A Pittsburg press despatch of 13th
inst. states that two communications
from Andrew Carnegie, which were
officially made public to-night, ssy
the steel king's retirement from active
business life and his donation of 95.
UUO.0U0 for the endowment of a fund
for the superannuated and disabled employees of the Carnegie company is announced. This benefaction is by far
the largest of the many created by Mr.
Carnegie, and is prohahlv without a
parallel anywhere in tbe world. Tht*
fun* will in no wise interfere with the
continuance of the savings fund established by the company fifteen years
ago for the benefit of its employee*.
In this latter fund nearly $2,000,000 of
the employees' savit.gs are on deposit,
on which the company, by contrail,
pays 6 per cent, and loans money to
the workmen to build their own homes.
In a letter lo the president and managers of the O^r****''* compjiny, Mr.
Carnegie announces that Mr. Franks.
his cashier, will hand nvertothem upon
their acceptance of the trust 95,0UTI,OUO
. if Carnegie company lionils in trust
forthe following purposes: The in
come of 11,000,000 io be spent in main
tainitig ihe libraries buill hy bim in
BraddiH-k, Du Quesne and Homestead.
The income of the other $t,OtW,000 is to
he applied;
(1) To provide for the emoloyees
of Ihe Carnegie company in all its
workr, mines, railways, shops, etc., injured in iu service and for those dependent upon such employees as are
(2.) To provide small pensions to
such employees, after lung and credit
able service, through exceptional circumstances, who need such help in
their old age and who make good use
of it, Should these uses nol require a! I
of the revenue and a sarcitis nf $200,-
000 he left after ten years' operation,
then for all over this workmen in mills
at other than the Carnegie company. In Allegheny "-omity, shall he-
come participants in the funds. The
mills nearest the works of tbe C'arne
gie 8leel company being first embrac*
Mr. Carnegie says: This fund is not
intended to he used as a substitute for
what the company has been intbe habit of doing in such cases. Il is intended to go still further and give to tbe
injured or their families, or to employees whn are needy in their old age,
through no fault ot iheir own, some
provisions against want as long as
needed or until their young children
cau become self-supporting-
There is now no doubt that one
and probably two railways will be
building out of Midway as soon as
spring opens, and Midway is destined
to become the commercial and railway
centre of the Boundary country.
Now is the time to buy lots in the
town. They will make you rich. It is
not a speculation, it is an investment.

Operations Will Shortly be Resumed
-  on an Extensive Scale.
A plan has just, heed perfected where*
hy the Brandon k Gulden Crown Mining company will he restored and will
enable o|ierulipii» to be resumed shortly on an extensive scale,
Owing to the slump in mining shares
in Eastern Canada tlie directors were
unable to dispose of any more treasury
slock nnd in consequence operations
Were suspended bist November. Prior
to Ihntdate consiilernlileore shipments
to the Trail smelter had heen made.
The freight mui treatment rate was
such that the directors did not feel
justified in pitying it any longer, especially as the smelter companydeclined
to reduce the figure unless a contract
for a specified tonnage was entered
into or unless the entire output of the
mine was sept to Trull for one year at
» fixed nite. The re-organization just
effected has taken a different form
from that usually adopted. Instead of
the oompany being reconstructed and
made assassahle as is thc practice, the
original subscribers have entered Into
awrttl n  •;--. tin virtuenfwhich
they havd agreed lo contribute or sur*
reqder Lo the treasury 40 per cent of
tbeir original holdings j and as the
subscribers' stock has been in a pool
since 18117, tbis agreement was thus
more easily jiccomplishcd as the pro
milters' stock wns not scattered. By
the plan adopted by the promoters two
Important things have been accom*
plished : first, ihe saving of the cost,of
reconstruction i and secondly, saving
tlie casual purchasers nf treasury
shures of an extra assessment. The
original subscribers have thus shotvn
evidence of their good failh as well as
tbeir high opinion of the future of the
property, whieh is regarded as one of
tlie most promising in the Boundary
With the treasury on hand and the 40
per rent contributed liy the original
subscribers will bring thc shares in the
treasury lo 450,000, Negotiations for
the sale of a large block of the treas
ury are now in progress ; and the pro'
ceeds will nm only bo sufficient to pay
off lhe flouting debt, but will provide
sufficient funds for working capital
So that when ore shipments are esuln-
ed it will lie on a permanent basis,
The mine will also enjpy the advantage of shipping to the Mother Lode
or Pyritie smelters at rates considerably lower than those formerly paid at
Trail; in fact the stun representing the
difference between what was paid at
Trail and the figure quoted by the
Ortviivr* ' •■ ,i n tloii plants will in
Itself represent a handsome profit.
