The   Liheral-Oonnervattves of   the

in nominating the Hon. Charles Mackintosh.     Only    the   highest   sense
of   duty to   the    Province,     and
pirticnlarly   the   mining  districts,
induced     Mr.    Mackintosh   to ac

Provincial politics, degraded as they

Not Sincere hi any Issue.
Tliere wa<< one |siint that Premier

uieeting. that is, that he whn the solid

Company at the luxe that company
iniiile tin* agreement, with the Ilritish
Columbia Southern llailway Company
uniler ilie terms of which Senator Cos
ami ills iissiH'iales acquired the Crow's
Nest conl lamia. He now claims that
Cox ami hi. associates after spending
dflllil.lKXl in developing mines on the
Uml in i|iie.tioii, should not have obtained title tothe land. This is an
admission that Joseph Martin, when
acting ns a lawyer for private clients,
was willing to bunco the people with
whom bis clients did business.
Premier Martin is reported an saying
in his speech at Ymir that he would
rather see J. Roderick Robertson
elected iiiem ber of the Legislative
Assembly for the Nelson riding than
John Houston. That means. If it
menu anything, that Premier Martin
i« opposed to the Right Hour law for
men working underground in mines.
It is well-known, that when a member
tif Mr.Semliii's Govern ment, Mr.Mnrtin
was opposed to making the Bight-Hour
law operative, and now he would
rather seen well known repealerelected
from Nelson luin a man who believes

Tlie Vancouver "News-Advertiser*'
lately published the following from a
correspondent relativa to Mr. Joseph
Martin's connection -With tbe Crow's
Nest coal landst-In the year WW,
shortly after the Liberal* eame Into
power at Ottawa, It was understood
that a proposal to aid the construction
of the Crow's Nest Pass Railway wai
under, the consideration of the Dominion Government. A lawyer of Victor-
la, one of the nott prominent banisters at the Provincial Bar, wai ih Spokane, Washington, at tbe time. This
gentleman hud acted  professionally
tot Mr. D. C. Corbin, Uw promoter of
the Nelson and Port Sbeppard Kailway and the line from Northport to
Rossland. He mentioned lhe subject
of the Crow's Neat Pass Railway to
Mr. Corbin and asked him if he could
carry out the undertaking if the Government gave a suhsidy and some arrangement could he made with tbe
parties who had the charter fur the
British Columbia Southern Railway,
with its valuable land grant. The proposed railroad could be connected with
Mr. Corhin's road and form a very valuable feeder for traffic. Mr. Cm hin
thought favorably of. the suggestion
but intimated that he had no connections or influences at Ottawa. Tlie
lawyer recouuuended him to secure
the services of a legal gentleman, whn
happened to he In Spokane at tbe
time, as one who was well acquainted
with the Oovernnient and leading men
among iti supporters in Parliament
and wbo heing at that time rather
"down on bis luck"—as the story goes
—from having lost both hia seat in
Parliament and bis nspectatloo of a
place in the new cabinet, was looking
around for some way to retrieve his
fortunes. It In, perhaps, scaicely nee
essarytosay that the individual referred tn was Mr. Joseph Mirtin.
Through the introduction of the lawyer from Victoria, Mr. Martin was
brought into contact with Mr. Corbin
and made acquainted with the proposition. He agreed to the proposal that
he should immediately proceed to
Ottawa and dn his he-t tn secure the
subsidy and charter fur Mr. Corbin.
The latter accordingly provided him
with transportation to Ottawa aa the
flrst Step towards paring Mr. Martin
for his services whieh, if they had a
successful result, were to be further
remunerated on a very
Mr. Martin departed for Ottawa.
Weeks passed and ran into months
hut no word reached Mr. Corbin from
him, At last, tn the utter astonishment nf both Mr. Corbin and his Victoria lawyer, the news came that the
Canadian Pacific Railway Company
had secured the suhsidy for the road
and that Mr. Martin was in tbat com.
pany's employ.
But this wai hot all. Mr. Martin
has an excellent nose fnr any enterprise or speculation whirh promises
satisfactory returns, ln connection
with bis position ai a solicitor for the
Canadian Pacific Railway, he was
brought Into contact with Messrs. Cox
and Jaffray and their associates in the
conipany, whirh had heen organised
to open up the great coal deposits in
the Crow's Nest Past. Mr. Martin
desired to secure an interest in the
Coal Company, but bis wishes in this
respect were not gratified, and from
thnt disappointment may be dated the
hostility which he has since displayed
to the company and those connected
with ik
There is one other incident in connection with Mr. Martin and the grant
of these lands which I noticed with
some surprise and nnt a little amusement. During the debate in the recent
session of tbe Provincial Legislature
whirh arose out of Mr. Martin's bitter
attack nn the Semlin Government for
carrying out the terms of the Act
granting these lands tothe British Colombia Southern Railway. Mr. Martin,
in reply to a query from a private
member as tn why he had not raised
the question long liefore he did, said
that the whole subject tras new to bim
when he entered Mr. Semlin's Cabinet,
and it took him some months to become familiar with it. I thought then
of Mr. Corbin ; of those Interviews in
Spokane and wondered if Mr. Martin
had forgotten how he was provided
With transportation to Ottawa and of
the manner in which he had found the
Canadian PaclHc inducements more
irresistible than thaw of the injured
Spokane railway man who had been
the meani of putting him in the track
which has landed him In tha Provincial Premiership. I venture tbe pro
phecy that tha rich vein struck at that
Spokane meeting will he still further
exploited in the ampler opportunities
which a membership in the Government will afford. But I have always

Messrs. J, 11. Turner, H, D. Helmckeii,

The following excerpt from the published report of the general meeting of
shareholder, iu the Biitish America
Corporation, held in London a few
weeks ago is of interest at this juncture : Mr. Campbell asked whether
he was rightly informed that the directors had dispensed with the services of
the Hon. C. H. Mackintosh, who hnd
always been regarded as a man of verj'
high quantities for the position which
he held.
Mr. Whitaker Wright: "We did nnt
dispense with his services. He was
not a salaried employee, but aditector,
and he had so many interest* of his
own which made such a large demand
upon his time and attention that he
could not Jo justice to himself and to
us ; therefore, as au honourable man,
he retired from the board. But he
has still the interest of the corporation at heart, and is perhaps its belt
friend in British Columbia."
Had Nothing to do With It
Even the Victoria "Times" makes
•the mistake of crediting Mr. Smith
Curtis with the "satisfactory settlement of tho labor troubles" in Southern Briiish Columbia. Does our contemporary not think it worth while to
know what it is talking shout? Mr.
Curtis had nothing to do with the settlement of the labor troubles iu the
Slocan, where there are more uiiues
than in all the rest of this region outside of it. H« had nothing to do with
tbe settlement of the labor troubles in
Nelson. Ymir, Aiusworth, and the
whole of East Kootenay dropped Into
line with Nelson and the Slocan. These
settlements were effected by tbe
miners and mine owners themselves,
without the Intervention of any Government, or Minister, or Government
Commissioner. Mr. Curtis bad something lo do with the settlement of a
little trouble over contract work in
one portion only of the constituency
in which he hopes to be a candidate.
That was all. However considerable
tt may he regarded, it is very litlle in
comparison with the settlement luada
elsewhere, which affected many niinei
mure aud whioh also showed tha way.

Hon. Smith Curtis "in the soup,"
Hon. Joseph Martin and his Minister
of Mines, Hon. Smith Curtis, are announced as intending to address a
public meeting at Midway next Saturday. Notwithstanding that the latter
has, for the sake of the Greenwood
Votes lie anticipates it will win him,
done tliis town and the larger half of
the Kettle Kiver Mining Division the
injustice of removing from the town
the office of the Mining Recorder nnd
the Provincial police, he at least
appreciates lhc fact that from 51) to 80
votes umy he polled here nnd so will
put in an appearance and endeavor to
influence some of them in his own
favor. Possibly the Conservatives, who
tints far hnve practically ignored this
part of the riding, will now wske up
to the fact that their opponents are
lint going to take any chances nf similarly damaging their cause hereabouts.
In the. opinion of the Victoiia "Colonist , many penple air afraid of Hon,

that ihey nre afraid of Ihe measles.
It is not so much lhe disease itself as

should Martinism prevail in Ibis Province iu distinct contrast to tbe distrust capitalists have in Mr, Martin

The Lilieral Association of Greenwood exhibited a very narrow und
petty spirit when last week it struck
oft' its membership roll the names of
Messrs. G, R. Naden, Duncan Ross and
A. M. Whiteside. Such n course reflects not upon the three prominent
and respected citizens of Greenwood
who have tlie courage of their anti-
Miirlin opinions, but upon thc organ
isiition which, falling its inability to
coerce them into falling into the line
it has seen lit to adopt, tries to discredit them in tlie eyes of tlie party
they bave been associated with. This
aclion is a singular contradiction of
the principles or feelings of liberalism,
wliieh word is authorati vely (Mined as
"freedom from narrowness or bigotry,
especially in matters of religion or
politics," Petty acts of injustice always (I ■feat their own ends, and this
one will assuredly recoil upon those
who were so blinded by prejudice ii"
to perpeli ate it.
An earnest effort is being made to
bring about the immediate opening to
white settlement nf the norlliei n half
of ti.e Colville Indian Reservation,
Washington,imte.-ul of deferring action
until next October. There does not
appear to lie any good reason fnr the
delay the law, as it now stands, requires. On the contrary excellent
reasons are given against such delay
Tn throw land open for settlement
only a few weeks liefore the time when
winter will set in is not good policy.
Better fnr throw it open early in thc
summer and so give intending settlers
time to establish homes and make other
provision for their necessities before
the winter comes upon them. Of
course nothing this Province can; do
or suy wiil expedite matters but it is
permitted to us to wish success to
our neighbors across the lixie in .their
endenvoi b to hasten the settlement of
thin extensive Area.of land capable of
supporting a' large population.
hnve outlined a scheme liy means of
which a Kettle River Valley railway,
connecting at the boundary line witb
au American road', thereby providing,
competition with the Canadian Pacific
road, isto be secured. The Vancouver "Province" makes the following
comment upon the proposition:
'Both Mr. Onrtis and Mr, Martin
musl be well aware lhat international
railway traffic can only be carried on
under a Dominion charter, and that
there is no chance of evading the law
on this subject by any such scheme as
that outlined. Clearly they are intent,
on befooling, the people of the Bound
ary district. In Mr, Martin's case
this is nnt at nil surprising, hut the
public would huve expected belter
things of Mr. Curtis."
The sequel to the negotiations to
establish an ore sampler at or near
Green wood shows that'altogether too
much importance was attached to tlie
overtures of men who had so little
confidence in the profit producing
capabilities of the enterprise they pro
lessed themselves anxious to launch in
thediitrlct that they wire nut prepared to run it on its own merits. They
would not even try it with tho aid of
a liberal bonus. As the Greenwood
"Miner" observes : "The City council's
offiir of50 cents per ton for the first
10,000 tons of ore crushed was very
lilieral ; and tlie action of the company proves conclusively thut they
were out ,vith the 'big init' for the
cash, and had not the necessary tfiian.
o'al backing nor the inclination to
carry on such an enterprise," it has
thus lieen demonstrated once more
that though bonus-hunters may lie
plausible enough there is hut one
sensible wny to deal with them and
that is to see to it that nothing he
allowed to go but a straight nnd
reasonable husiness proposition the
lu-iieHt from which will lie mutual.
There is much enterprise and public
spirit to lie found in Greenwood, but
with it is associated a common-sense
caution that guards against giving
something for nothing.   .
TheToronto "World" Seems to lie
very unfortunate in lis sources of information relating to this district.
The mining news it publishes fiom
Boundary Creek is frequently inflated
and unreliable; its statements a fow
weeks ago respecting the district and
the labor troubles were simply untrue.
Now it is serving up fake
items, evidently supplied by its Vancouver namesake. For a sample we
quote the following which appeared in
its issue of Monday, 23rd inst. ''Advices from the upper country tbis
morning show unmistakably that the
iide k turning strongly in favor of
tlie Government. Greenwood gave
Smith Curtis a magnificent reception
lust night at ex-Governor Mackintosh's
meeting, the Minister of Mines heing
the only man the audience wanted to
hear. His references to a Government-owned railway from Boundary
l.o the coast were hailed with tumultuous cheering." This, no doubt,
makes nice reading for Mr. Martin's
Ontario friends, if he have any, but
Ihere is just this little qualification lo
add, viz, that Mr. Smith Curtis was
neither at the meeting in question not-
even in Ihe Boundary country at the
time it waa held. As lo Ihe "tumultuous cheering"—well certain press correspondents in Vancouver have lung
been km wu to possess a very vivid
imagination, hentfe the designation
"Vancouver liar" which sopersisten t-

A Bait to Catch Voters.
The plan by which the Rapid Transit
Company of Grand Forks proposes to
overcome the effect of the refusal of
the railway committee of the House
of Commons to report favorably upon
the Kettle River Railway hill is interesting, hut there may he a snag in the
way.   It can hardly he possible that
the British Columbia Government has
power by oider-in-coiincil to authorize
a company to make a rail connection
with a line in a foreign country, when
the Legislature could not pass an act
to that effect.   Of the good faith of
the promoters of the project we have
no doubt, hut in the bona fides of the
Provincial Government we may he al
lowed to express lock  of faith.    The
election is not very far away, and if
Mr. Smith Curtis can have a prospective railway hi opposition to the
C. P. R. as a bait to the voters of Rossland riding,  he will    no  doubt he
stronger than he otherwise would lie.
We take leave to doubt If the Government of this Province can exercise
powers under the Tramway Act,which
the courts have decided are vested only

Mr. Leslie Hill. 0. E., who was in
Midway yesterday, last week made an
examination of the Jewel mine in Long
Lake camp. When in England aliout
three months ago he attended a meeting of the directors of the Jewel Gold
Mines, Ltd., and then., anged to report on the property, Development
work has been proceeding at the mine
for some time past and sufficient having heen done to allow of the value of
tlie property being fairly estimated,
the directors have decided to suspend
work, pending receipt of Mr Hill's report. Although not at liberty to give
out any particulars respecting the
mine, Mr. Hill admitted that his examination warrants him in reporting
favorably upon the results achieved hy

The British Columbia Oovernnient
has been repeatedly adyised that the
Imperial authorities strongly condemn
discrimination In Canada against the
Japanese, but notwithstanding this
the British Columbia Oovernrnent bas
been and still is excluding Japanese,
During the session of the British Columbia Legislature of 1800 sonic fourteen bills of this eharaeter were passed.
They prevented the employment of
Japanese labor. The Minister of Justice asked British Columbia to consider nil amendment of them. This
was not done, and as a consequence
four bills have been disallowed. They
are an act relating to liquor licences,
an-act relating to the Midway and Penticton Railway, an act amending the
coal mining regulations act (these three
have heen disallowed because of Jap*
panese clauses in the bills) and the
placer mining act. The last, which has
caused so much discussion In British
Columbia, has been voted against he-
cause it was ultra vires. Some ten
bills affecting private companies have
lieen allowed, ns It was not thought
prudent to interfere with organization
of these companies.— Ottawa press

A plain-spoken Visitor.
Mr. T. I.. Orahame, a recent. CoaBi
visitor to Green**ood, in a letter tn
the Victoria "Colonist", is very plain-
spoken in expressing his opinion* of
some of Greenwood's draw backs. He
says: Oreenwood lie* in a narrow
glen, flanked north nnd south by high
bills. It I* stilling hot in summer, ami
it appeared lo me somewhat exposed
tn Ure. Once n lire gut a good hold nil
the wooden huildings, nnd any tiling
like n wind were blowing up or down
the gorge it would lie h very difficult
thing to cope with it. The town is exposed lo ov-rflow, ns wns seen Ihe
nther day when the floor of one of the
theatre* was flooded to a deplh of
three teet, Then again a very serious
question with tlte Oreenwood people
will always be the disposal of sewerage, Theie is is no river nor Like ncai
il, and unless the corporation adopt
the expensive septic tank, il is difficult
to see how the problem is to lie solved
satisfactorily. It is also snid that the
city suffers occasionally from a search y
of water. This is, of course, a drawback tbat will lie overcome in time,
for there are known to lie in the
neighborhood many excellent springs,
and not far distant one or (wo mountain lakes, wbich might be used.
What are Vou Doing?
It is not so much a question of "how
much the citizen* of a town are doing
by concerted aclion to advance tlie
public interest," hut rather it. is n question of "what nre you doing, individually." Individual effort soon lends lo
concerted action. It must come first.
If you can do anything tn improve the
town's appearance ; anything to help
to huild up the community and attract
the attention of capital nnd sturdy,

Tbe Carilioo, of Camp McKinney,

Since April, 18<H, or for nearly six
years, Ihis mine and mill have lieen
continuously working, producing over

foot level is tu he t-eeti one of the Hurst
bodies ol ore ever uncovered in the
mine, and as one of thu management
remaiked, the old Cariboo never
looked belter than at the present time,
The work ia now more particularly
confined lo the eastern end of lhe company's property, on the Okanogan
claim, where the vein is over four feel.
wide and remarkably well mineralized.
On the Sailor claim, some 20.KI feet
west of the Cariboo nn the same vein,
a rich Imdy of ore, identical wilh Cariboo ore, was struck in the 75-foot, level,
the vein lieing 5| /eel. wide, with 30
Inches of pay ore, This strike hns
caused quite a ripple of excitement in
tbe camp, proving the value nnd continuity of theCarihon vein west of that
company'* property, and giving assurance of future prosperity.
Like the Cariboo, the Sailor I* owned
principally in Toronto, nnd it is most
gratifying that Ihe Toronto people
ihotild-ineet with such success lu nur
camp, for they have invested their
money freely, equipping (he pniper-
lies with the latest improved machinery, nnd sparing no expense at making
a thorough investigation.
