The Question ol a Close Union of Colony and Motherland Is one of
Present Day Importance.
Tin- prolilpin of Empiif hecomesyear
after y<*nr a great)1! source of worry
Btiil anxiety In 11 country's people.
T«e politicians of today are only fol-
lowing in lho footsteps of their predecessors when I hey Hit down to dia
cuss thb future.ot ti nation in its re-
le'iou to colonial dependencies, hut lo
thc innn in Ihe street the idea that
colonies are a Sonne of weakness to a
home land is one so stai tlingly new ill
its presentation that very many times
he fails to grasp the argument, and
contents himself wilh ihe old notion
that, an empire's greal ne k is liest
measured hy the extent in acres and
miles of its dependent territory. In
some ways ihis holds true, for the
spectacle ofa new land, found uncultivated and barren liy the surplus
population of an old time state and by
ihem made iuto a veritable gulden of
KUiii, is surely one that speaks of
power in Ihe unity of division, anil
conv..ys tlie itnnression lhat what an
old land could not contain or feed becomes the nucleus of a new countty,
w hii ii iu sentiment is sn much similar
and in nil.i has so much in common
'.hat instead of lieing looked upon as
a new um inn is nu her considered hut,
as a branch of an old one, and ae such
in its younger life dues much lo rejuvenate the aged and to keep it in its
place ii*i one nf the greatest among
■miii> great. A superficial glance al
the relations of Empire and colony
conveys thu impression, Lilian examination uf the actual conditions of ex.
istitig union gives ns a less roseate nut
|6nk uu lhe advantages and disadvantages Hint exist, in d have both bearing
on In >tli dependency and mother land.
Ouro«n Elliptic is si mug pionf of
the existence nt diffiunlti a. Today
lhat Empire holds itself responsible
fnr the quarrels and battles of Canada,
of India, of Australia, and of every
other spot on the world's map thai is
pa in led red. Without recompense it
stations armies of protection at their
it i.rs and Heels of powerful warships
prowl the sens, and thus act as police
men of Empire, keeping always before
covetous aud competing nations the
warning that what is mine is mine nnd
never can be thine, and as a return
what do they get from their colonies.
In help comparatively nothing, in pro-
gressioti of commerce less than noth
ing, and in protection of interests no
assistance at all would be of more advantage than the assistance given.
The war in Africa is evidence of the
ahnve statement. Although we must
admit the value of tbe various colonial
I'lintiiigenis senl. lo the seat of war,
yet we find that the help in Ihis way
given is much more than counter-
balanced by Ihe necessity of always
having its permanent garrisons complete and its warships always on
station. In India alone, latt for the
necessity of keeping an army always
there, more than 40,01)0 while troops
would have heen available at the opening stages nf warfare that of necessity were thus withheld. In Egypt,
because of the need, or fancii*d need,
of controlling lhe Slier, ('anal, some
10,(110 men were detained, and in Gibraltar and Malta some 16.0011 more
were tied to their particular places.
And to go further and examine the
future we will find that, when, if ever
thai country is subdued and formed
into a crown oniony, the ol her colonies,
because of ihe necessary free trade of
n crown colony, become lhe principal
participators in the benefits, and yet
io pay the debt that has been incurred
liy the war they do not contribute one
solitary cent.
And again, even in a commercial
sense ihe colony is of nn advantage at
present to the mother land. As a free
trade country Kngland admits almost
all import duty free Into its cities and
towns, and of necessity confers this
privilege on all other nations as well
as on colonies,. hut almost without
exception (ireat BHtain today has to
pay ihe same duty on goods sent in lo
the colony, and in this respect stands
only in the same position aa any other
competing people, and yet, to protect
ihe younger countries and make their
commercial supremacy more valuable,
that same mother country negotiates
oflen hi ils own disadvantage favored
nation treaties on behalf of the colony,
and give to It men and ships to protect its property.
In this there is nn advantage ; there
is weakness rather to the empire, and
when, as it at;times happens that loss
ia incurred then the loss is borne entirely by the one party. Wero it an
absolute necessity for reasons of food
aupnly to retain a hold on colonies,
then a country at any cost would lie
justified in retaining that hold, hut
when it can easily be proved that no
necessity exists at all for retention on
that footing it makes us naturally ask
why it still is done. It looks very
much as if Ihe desire for gold was as
much a nation's heritage as it is a
man's, and that to possess without
counting the cost is the aim of all
countries, and too, it seems, lhat after
strong demonstration has lieen given
of the futility of holding, the desire is
in no way abated lo still possess; it
rather is intensified. Formally years
Spain was lieing drained of money
and of men for the retention of her
colonies,,,
The outcome of the study of colonial
necessity is at almost all times lhe
same, Blalchford in England some
years ago wrote a Imok on Socialism,
"(•ranted," he says, "a people, a policy
and a country, lhe problem tor solution
resolves itself into this, that the great
est good of tiie greatest number is of
paramount inteiest to the people of
that country, and how hest to ad vantage themselves liecomes the sole aim
in life." It is well to wrile of England
for the English and Canada for the
Canadians, and it is meet that, these
things should he, rait they, by reason
of minor importance of evenis, become only secondary to the large outlook when the greatest nation of crea
ation, finding itself at the spring tide
of floods of change, recognizes Ihal
only in union of sect and race lies the
regeneration of the material world so
much looked for and hoped for.
The question of a close union of
colony and motherland is one of present day importance. Almost all our
politicians see the signs of tbe times
and are preparing for it. The Hon.
G. W. Ross some time ago in England
was laud in his expression of desire for
a closer union of home-land and
younger land, aud Sir Wilfrid Laurier
and his henchman Mr. Tarte have
both declared t heir belief in the neces
sity of closer relation, and Sir Charles
Tupper haaeven gone the length of
saying that the future of our country
here rests almost entirely on lhe establishment of closer relations to Kngland, the said closer relations to consist of an Imperial customs union and
Imperial duty levied nn all goods imported other than those of colonial
origin.
That the future of the British Em
pire rests largely nn this poinl is true,
hut the problem arises for solution
"can these things he done?" Can England forsake her principles of free
trade and tax all imports unless those
nf colonial origin P Can it as a nation
afford to shut ils doors to much of the
trade at present entering from other
countries, and can it obtain the actual
necessities of life, that is it's food
supply, frnm its own dependencies, and
thus by their imports made free keep
BOUNDARY ORE SHIPMENTS.
The tonnage of ore shipped by the mines of the Boundary
District during Nov. to 13th, so far as ascertained, is as under:
TONS
Old Ironsides and Knob Hill group  9777
Mother Lode  4,084

aggregate of 419,698 tons.
it's people on the same level nf independence as it can through an indiscriminate entrance of nil imports no
matter from what land.
We believe it can. We helieve that
if the empire on which Ihe win never
seta is tn remain as it is and retain iti
position of commanding Influences nn
the notable affairs of the world it
must Income consolidated as one vast
whole rather than remain as it is, a
multiple nf units, each one pulling its
own way and pulling tn destruction,
A commercial system based on a
generous principle of Imperial free
trade is ihe only natural outcome of
the present situation, and we helieve
that the consummation of this is tlu;
problem that is more in need of solving than any other In lhe world.
That the Empire can live within itself ran easily lie proved. All that
Canada needs in the way of textile
product it can procure from England
or from other colonies, its food supply
it ran grow itself, and all that England needs in thn way of fund supply it
can obtain from ils colonies, and it
can manufacture all else required. Today because il is as cheap Canada goes
to the U. S A. for many things it
could get from Britain, and Britain
because it is cheaper to import fiom
Russia and Egypt millions of bushels
of wheat that it could procure frnui
Canada, hut the question is, is it us
much to nur advantage to have free
trade as fair trade? Wnuld the raising of duty from Imports counterbalance the raising of the duty fiom
export? We think so. The farmer in
Canada today who exports his wheat
to a limited market would have an
unlimited market then at., his CQitt*
man.I, ami the absence nf opposition
would mean thai fail prices would
always bu paid for his goods. The
question of national revenue nf course
has to l>e considered but it, 1 think, is
easy of solution. What might lie lost
through British freed entree could lie
more than made up by duly on foreign
goods, and in the end the loss would
be nil. In thia only lives the hope 1 if
Empire, and unless these tilings are
spueiliiy dime it must surely come to
pass that ihnt r.inpire and colony will
part and become opposing nations,
each one fighting for their own land
and against all other lands. That Empire should he consolidated into one
vast whole Ib perhaps after all better
than that Canada shnuld become an
independent nation, but one or other
must soon happen, and it is up to otic
rulers to say whicli is for the liest, and
that the hest decision will he reached
we quite believe even although it comes
from lhe present Government.

Smelter for the Snowshoe.
Once again is there talk of a new
smelter for the Boundary country,
says tbe Grand Forks Miner Gazette,
nnd rival towns will now he out with
their best bib and tucker to show the
projectors of Ihe enterprise Ibat they
and they alone have the proper location for the proposed smelter.
The talk of a plant comes this time
from the English syndicate recently
formed to take over the Snowshoe
mine in Wellington camp, and it is
intimated that the directors of the
company owning the mine are figuring
on the erection of a smelter for thu
treatment of their ores.
The ore bodies on the property are
enormous and tbe quality of tbe ore
is very fair, but still not so rich hut
thai lhe company can make greater
profits by smelting iheir own ores
rather than sending them lo some
other works,
Some 1,600 tons ot the ore have already lieen sent to the various smelters of this section for testing purposes,
and quite exhaustive tests have also
heen made in the east by the great
inventor Edison, with a view tn treating the ore by other than a smelting
process.
On the surface nf the claim tbe ore
bodies show to such an extent and
with such good values that it will be
possible 10 follow the met hint in vogue
at the Ironsides and Knob ilill- and
quarry the ore instead of working by
tunnel and shafl as in most mines. Uy
this system a thousand or bo tons uf
medium grade ore daily could easily
be taken nut and profitably treated
were smelter facilities available in connection with the operation of tlie
property.
That these must eventually he supplied can hardly be doubted, tho only
question lo lie decided being just how
soon. Mr. Anthony McMillan, managing director nf the property, has been
in the east recently to consult with
Mr. G. S. Waterlow, who is at lhe
head nf the big syndicate owning the
property, and has just returned to the
mine.   It is probable that t he develtqi*
ment of the property  will  he prosecuted on a large scale fiom  now on
and something definite with regard to
the smelter under consideration may
be expected 10 eventuate very shortly. I

It is only a question of a short time
until that portion of the Coast-Kootenay Railway from Curlew to Midway
will be constructed. This line would
be now being built, but for the scarcity
of laborers. When this road is built,
most pf the spur lines to the different
mining camps will start from here,
making this the railway centre of this
district. With the advent of more railways into Midway the prices of real
estate will advance, and the choice lots
purchased and taken off the market.
Show your good judgment by buying
now. Midway property will make you

Invested Capital.
Home idea of the capital invested in
the American nlining and metallurgical industry is given  in  the dividend
m.ii .'iii published  in ihe tables of
the Mining and Engineering Journal,
snys tlie Nelson Miner. In the quarter
ending October 31st the dividends paid
hy companies reporting to the Journal
amounted to $39,782,235. Since January 1st, the disbursements aggregate
,$132,t(»,000. This total would be con.
sideiably increased were it possible to
add the divide nds paid hy private and
close corporations that do not take
the public into their confidence so far
as their profits are concerned.
In this lisl arc included several dividend payers of British Columbia. According lo a recent compilation the
inde mines of British Columbia have
paid $7,131,337 since the industry was
commenced. That is the sun thati
heen learned. There have heeflfa
number of companies and individuals
operating who have not informed the
public as to what, their profits were
and these would bring the total dividends paid to something over $8,000,*
inki. This i.s not had when the conditions under which the industry has
been brought to its present condition,
and tlie short time lhat has elapsed
since it was founded are considered,
Tlie Kootenays when lode mining was
first commenced, was in its primeval
condition without trails, wagon roads,
bridges, railroads or reduction plants.
Now all these conveniences have been
provided, as a consequence of these
conveniences the mine owners in the
i arly period of the industry were subjected to very heavy expenditures to
provide I hem and as a result the
profits nr dividends have been smaller
than they would havo been bad Ihe
conditions been favorable. Now, however, that tliere are transportation
facilities almost everywhere and a
number of reduction plants the profits
of Ihe mine owners will be larger and
tliere should uinl will be an increase
In the volume of the dividends paid.

Advice to Prospectors.
Prospectors should never permit thc
opinions of othe" prospectors or miners
In ilel et' them from making a full and
complete examination of any ntineial
that lo them looks possihle of making
an ore body. Such opinions freely
given were tis freely obtained. Rarely
are ihey conclusions from the facts, or
even what appear to be facts, of a personal Investigation of pi'0specting,says
the Mining and Scientific Press. Again
il is quite possible the other fellows
may he mistaken in their opinions,
Ni-iI her should t he prospectors he turned away from makinga personal investigation hy the presence of abandoned
work and old dump piles. The more
pronounced thc evidence of age in
these old works the more reason there
is for not heing influenced hy their
presence. The original prospector or
miner whose abandoned work remains
may have been looking fnr free milling
ore only and very probably overlooked
the presence of pyritie ore or the ores
of silver or copper. The prospector
should remember he may be looking at
the possible mine from a different
point than occupied hy his long departed predecessor. Another good rule
for a prospector is not to locate everything that looks possihle that he sees.
If havine given all Ihe time that is
reasonable to the prospect, and il
shows nothing of value hetter abandon
It and look for something else. It is
waste of good money to record locations that do not show good prospect*,
and location closes the ground against
exploration hy another prospector
without doing the drat one a particle
of good. Give the other fellow a chance
in that which yon have discaidetl as
worthless. It is what you would ask
for yourself, and he may from a different point of examination find in I lie
prospect the mine you have missed.
The mere act, of location of possihle
mineral bearing land is nol piospect-
mg. The pick, shovel antl pan, antl
nol the hatchet and lead pencil, are
the prnsperlor's tools. When the
prospector does find what, mav he a
mine he should develop it instead of
waiting for some one else to do it for
him, Imt be sure you have the mine
before you decide to stay with it.
