Orientals In British Columbia.
The sessions of the royal commission
appointed to investigate and report
upon Chinese and Japanese immigrants
in Briiish Columbia have developed
some interesl ing information concerning the Orientals iu thai province. At
Niimiimo, an iu purl tint labor centre,
only three Chinese attended lhc public
schools. A considerable number nf
.laps and Chinese are eiiip'oyed iu connection -villi the coal mines al Niinai-
ino and Ooniox. At lhe latter place
the Orientals exceed the number of
white men employed in coal mining.
A list of ten uiaiiufai'tliving cnnt'iTiis,
including sawmills, at Vancouver and
Ohetuaitius, brick manufacturing al
Victoria, and ihe Wellington coal
mines, near Nanaimo, shows a total of
INIO white men, 880 Chinese and 437
Japanese. Of this number nf whites
it, is estimated thai aboui 0M are skill
ed workmen, leaving til) white unskill
ed laborers, as compared with 1,300
There are 40 salmon canneries, averaging 900 men each year, or 8,000 iu
all. Each cannery would average 10
whites, chiefly skilled workmen, 100 in
all ; making 7,(100 Orientals employed,
as compared with hi) whites. There
are about 8,000 fishermen, of which
nunilier nearly 4,1X10 arc Japanese.
The evidence also went to show that
mil of a population of probably 14,000
Chinese und 1,000 Japanese, of common
laborers between lhe ages of 18 and 45,
probably IKK) are married.
The superintendent, nf the western
division of the V. P. It. stated that lhe
company gave regular employment to
aliout DO Chinese and 70 Japanese.
This nunilier was increased ut certain
limes by 500', when surface work or
shovelling snow or slides off the track
was required.
Among the statements submitted at
New Westminster was one to the effect that lhe recent census shows 748
Chinese in a total population of 0,700
in New Westminster.
The proprietor of one of the canning
factories submitted a slaiemeut showing Ihe cost of operaiions ut his iai
mon cannery for the lasl four years.
This statement showed the tolal
amount paid for Chinese labor to have
been :
1807 $14,370.5*
1898    5,80851
1800    0 027.78
1900    4,051,39
During the same year the outlay for

Smith & McLeod's Mill at That Place
does Up in Smoke.
Another most unfortuiiaie Hre occurred last Saturday evening al Ruder
hy, i esult ing in Ihe destruction of
Smith & McLeod's Hne saw mill at thai
pi ice, wilh over half a million feel of
clear seasoned lumber which was piled
iu the yard close to the mill.
The lire originated in lhe slip, up
which the logs ace diawn tn the mill,
and, as the prolonged period of hoi
weather had made everything as dry
as Under, the flames licked up the
building iu an incredibly short time.
It was about 0.30 p.m. when the lire
was seen, and at once it became apparent lhat noiliing could be done to save
the mill. A band of workers, numbering over a hundred strong, speedily
organized themselves into a bucket
brigade, and to their untiling efforts is
due the fact lhat Ihe lown of Kndcrhy
was saved. They erected a temporary
barricade against th- flames with
boards, which were kept drenched with
water, and ihus prevented the flames
from spreading tn the adjoining buildings of the town.
Nothing was saved of the mill machinery, except the boiler, which may
possibly he utilized again, Ahoul 500,-
OOOfeelof lumber was left uninjured,
most of which was composed of mater
ial such as can he used iu the linn's
sash and door factory which is located
in Vernon, There was insurance
amounting to $8,000on theluiuber,this
amount having fortunately been recently placed on il, and aboui $4,0U0on the
uiill. The loss, however, will lie heavy,
mid much sympathy is expressed for
the firm, especially as the disaster cuine
ut a time when the demand for lumber
was brisk, many ordois having recently been received.
Smith k McLeod intend to at once
start up again, and may make arrangements lo go ahead with a portable mill
until such time us the plant can he
replaced.—Vernon News.

Al. Geiser, of Baker City, Takes Contract to Work Le Rol.
Bernard MacDonald, manager of the
Le Koi at Hossland, hopes lo start
work on the propeily soon, lie has
let a contract to Al Geiser of Baker
Lily, Ore., to produce at least 150 tons
of ore daily from the mine.
Mr. Geiser lias also secured a contract for $182,000 worth of work to lie
done around the snultec at North-
port The job Includes the production
of 300 tons of lime rock daily, That
tonnage is enough lo keep the live
furnaces busy on ore. ll is presumed
lhat the management expects to work
the smelter at its full capacity,
There are perhaps 75,000 tons of ore
on hand at the smelter now. That
would be enough lo keep the smeller
busy at full capacity nnly ubout eight
weeks. Itis expected, therefuiu, thut
an effort will be intule lu work lhe Le
Roi also ai Its full capacity, The contract wiih Mr. (ieiser only calls for
mining 1511 tons per day, but Lli.it is a
111i11i111ii111 figure, aud Mr. Geiser will
be at liberiy to mini) as much additional ore as he can produce.
The question bf getting nien foi the

A lawyer in a court room may call a
man a liar, a scoundrel, a villain or a
thief, and no one will make complaint
when court adjourns. If a newspapei
man prints such reflections on a man's
character, there is a libel suit or a dead
ediiot. This is owing In Ihe fact that
the people helieve what an editor says,
Nothing will he done this year on
the Wesl Fork wagon road. It is at
least gratifying to And out something
il -finite regarding this matter even if
the decision is unfavorable tn the
country. It is hetter lo know at once
Unit the provincial government bus
decided nut lu assist in I he opening u|
nf that promising mineral country to
Ihe west of her-, than to live from day
today in the hope thai work will
start on the much needed wagon road
between here aud Beaverdell, Tbe
reason advanced hy the .government
for not completing the wngrn road between here and the West Fork is 'hat
lasl. year a large appropriation was
made for this particular purpose and
that it was squandered by those who
had the wmk in charge, and that it
would he useless to make a further
appropriation or in any way assist in
its completion, on account of its for
mer experience, If this is the policy
Ihe government expects to adopt in
regard to the completion of this road,
we may not, look fnr anything to he
done for some time. Sufficient money
Was appropriated and expended over a
year ago to complele the road between Westbridge mid what is now
Beaverdell, but ihe money was squau-
deied by employing people who were
unexperienced in the m t of road build-
lug, ami the road wns hut partially
completed, If a private individual
wet e to employ a man lo do a certain
piece of work, and that individual
were to find that the man whom he
employed were incompetent and unalile to accomplish the woik assigned
to him, the employee would be immediately discharged and the work
would he completed under lhe
supervision uf a capable mull, regardless of Iheauiuiiht squandered under
the supervision of the incompetent
employee. But, as Ihe Scripture would
say, Ihe provincial government "is
nor so." Simply because it bas shown
poor judgment in the selection of its
employees, who have squandered
puhlic money recklessly, it has decided not to expend auy more money
ill opening up the West Fork country,
which promises to equal, if not excel,
any mineral country yet discovered in
this province. It would rather expend
a few thousand dollars iu building
roads and trails to a number ot
ranches thai are owned liy personal
friends of the individual members of
the government, than to open up a
country (hat Is rich in mineral and
that is bringing fnr more revenue to
the government than all Ihe lunches
in this districl, There is no reason
why roads should not lie built to accommodate Ihe ranching community
of this district as well as the mineral
districts, but if any choice lie mide,
let it be the mineral districts that are
given the preference, for without the
mines of tips country, the farming
community would have no sale fur
their produce. But the provincial
government would rather make itself
appear ridiculous expending money on
Irying to convince the people of this
province that there is no feasible
•route over the Hope mountains for a
lino of railway, than lo be commended
for its good judgment in spending a
small sum uf money in opening up a
good mineral section. The present
government is evidently working
against the interests of the country,
and the sooner it is ousted nut of
power and a new government, with
the interests of Ihe province at heart,
elecled in ils place, the hetter,
on mr nre t uur is coming in oaiiy
fnun lhe B. C, mine, in which shipments there will not be auy interruption. A few men are still employed at
timbering and other mine work requiring to lie done. It is definitely
promised that work will he resumed
next, Wednesday or Thursday. Meanwhile Ihe repairs at the smeller will be
executed as expeditiously as possible,
and it is Intended to blow in the fnrnnce again on Thursday, or earlier if
The erect ion nl the second furnace,
already arranged fur, will in I he future
obviate the necessity for iiKiiuilnr total
suspension, even for a like brief period,
of ore-reduction works, for with two
furnaces lepalrs, when nscessary, can
be made to one whilst the other continues in operation.

danger of the hlast going off, got out
of the cage and started up the ladder.
When he had ascendfd a few feet he
attempted lo board the car, hut only
managed to get half in and half out.
A signal lo lower was quickly given,
hut the body striking the timbering
brought Ihe car to a standstill. The
car was lowered, releasing the hody,
which Tell to the. next level, a dislance
of 100 feet, and fell into Hi feet of
water. Owing to the danger of tbe
blast going off thn car ascended, bul
subsequently was lowered and the
body, when recovered, revealed lhat
death resulted from a broken back.
Deceased was a married man. His
family in lhe east expected tu start for
British Ooiumbia Ihis week.
HU Wile is Out of Town.
We see a man wilh underlip lhat has
a downwaid droop,
Upon his face a scowl as if he'd fallen
in the soup t
He roams about the busy streets in an
uneasy way,
And puts a surly accent on thn things
be has to Bay.
He goes into a restaurant and drops
into a seat
And wonders why there's nothing fit
for a dog rn eat.
And if you care lo seek the cause that
makes him feel so brown
You'll not have very far to look ; his
wife is out of town.
We see another man dressed so unusually gay,
He wears a smile of gladness and a
buttonhole bouquet;
He joins the cruising parties, where
the while topped schooners sail,
And goo-gooes all the pretty girls who
chance to cross his trail.
Al. striking of tho midnight hour he
yet is on the street,
Is strenuous in his efforts to control
his wabbling feet;
He wears his Iml tipped sideways on
his heer-liefuddled crown ;
The mousey knows the cat's away; his
wife is out of lown.
—J, B. Adams, in Denver I'osl.
