Wise Move.

The people of  Rossland  did  some
ve|-y P'*.-�� speaking at the  banquet
tendered to the Hon. Colonel   E. G,
Prior, minister of mines and  acting
premier of British Columbia. Speeches
were made by leading citizens, mino
managers and mine owners.   It was
stated among other things that British
Columbian leading industry, namely;
tbat of mining Is dying on account of
tbe oppressive mining law.   of the
province and the lack of encouragement given by the government to tho
mining industry.   It was figured out by-
one of the speakers tbat one-fifth of
the total prodiici.luii of the minus of the
province is seized by the government
in taxes. This certainly is a very shortsighted pulley for the government of
tbe province to pursue und it is retarding progress over the whole province
aud Is hurting Indirectly other industries as well as mining.   Thn following
is part of what llieKo.eliin.i Miner had,
on the subject: I
"The two per cent mineral tux is'
inlquilious. lt throttles thu development of the Kossland aud other eauips
possessing resource** of a similar nature. Further and permanent prosperity can u.ily Uo attained upon the abolition ul the tax. The Kossland eamp
will tbuu forge ahead ou a scale hitherto without precedent. Facts and figures are lorthcuuiiut; to support these
be   foregoing   deductions    were
placed before Hon. E. 0. Prior, minister uf mines for the province of British Columbia, at a complimentary ban- '
quel tendered the cltv.* distinguished
visitor on Saturday night ut the hotel
Allan.   Rossland's leading mining men
combined lu thu effort to place  the
Honorable the  minister of mines in
possession of thu real lads of the local
si mat ion, and their arguments attach
I with equal force to the situation in
' other camps where great deposits of
comparatively  low   grade ore  exist,
such as tbe Boundary.   In a sense the
function was tbe most remarkable ever
witnessed  in the Golden City.   It Is
probably   wlthuut   parallel  that tbe
principal speakers at a banquet in tbis
city should have cuinblned to Impress a
member of the administration with the
unuesirable features of a certain condition uf affairs, the remedy (or which
lies within the powers of the minister
whom  tbey addressed, and, knowing
the desire of the minister to become
acquainted with real couditlunsand in
view vl tbe overwhelming flood of facts
and figures placed boiore him thus publicly, it ia generally accepted as almost
certain  that Some alleviation of the
grlevious burden may bo looked for at
no lato date.
"Covers being removed, the toast list
was taken up. The opening toast, "His
Gracious Majesty King Edward VII,"
was received with the enthusiasm which
the national toast cover falls to elicit
in tho royal city of Rossland, enhanced
bythe (act that ln Westminster Abbey
across the Atlantic His Mtjustybad
been vested with the crown aud ceptro
that day.
-Following was the toast to the guest
of the evening, and this was honored
with a cordiality that brought a smile
of pleasure to tbe lips of Colonel Prior.
The minister of mines mado a bright
and effective address in response, say
'���Mr. Chairman,   Vlee-Chalrman  and
"In looking at tho Rossland Miner
this morning I noticed a very nice and
kind little article in regard to myself,
and one item staled that as soon as I
camo to Rossland. I should find thu
latch string huuging on the outside.
Well, Mr. Mayor, I havo found that to
be the fact' for at nono of tho plaeos 1
bave visited since I wont into public
life, bus there been kinder treatment
or more general  comradeship shown

know   (hut the accounts of these bat*

it is my good fortune to be present at
one of them to-night.
"The paper also said It wanted me to
be frank nod cordial, not diplomatic.
I don't mink that 1 can assume or live
up to the role of a diplomat, but, I
think anybody who knows me. and
those who do not know inn will kindly
look at my physiognomy, will say that
I am preity friink as a rule.

of vouiv; a splendid future.   Nut only

Ing   with   precious metals, but I am
proud to say that I see here tn-nlglit
around   this  festive board, men who
have made this tbolr home, and whose
ability, energy, knowledge and determination I am sure will place this city
lu the proud position of being, if not
tbe largest, at least one of the largest
cities in the province of British Columbia.    I say thut from my heart, gentlemen, because I (Irmly believe It.
"Now, goiitleincii, Mils is my H>t
visit lo Kossland since Ji.jlai.n__r the position of minister of mines, a position, I
can assure you, whatever you may
think, I am very proud of. 1 saw noted
in the Victoria "Times', newsosper, a
paper which sees III in oppose me politically, that tne minister nf mines
was coming up to tho Kootenay district, aud that men there had prepared
a pretty hot time for him.
"Now, I am of the opinion, Mr. Mayor, that It Is my duly as a minister of
tho crown, to travel the length and
breadth  of  the province of which I
have partly tu take charge,   I don't
think anyone will  begrudge the few
hundreds of dollars It requires fur a
minister tu travel around the country
and sue what are the needs of thu p.*, ���
pie and thu dlstriuts in which the pei ���
pie live, and I hope, if I am allowed lo
bold the position I now do, or other
public positions, that tins will not be
by many times my last visit to yourj
Golden City.   I can assure you, Mr. |
Mayor and gentlemen, that tho members of the government are most anxious to do what is butt for tbe welfare
of thu province, and I am sure I can
speak specially for my own department.
They are all very anxious tu.see tbe
mining industry put on a proper and
paying basis.   Wo havo to havo reven-1
tie, you will admit that, but the mem-1
bets of tho government wish to seo
that that   revenue is collected In a

"There Is no doubt that the mining
industry is the principle Industry; they
may say what tbey like about the fishing Industry and Ihe millions nf cases
of salmon they get, the lumber industry, or any other Industry, but when
you come to compare them with the

other industry In the province.   It is

Ferguson received a visit Saturday front Hon. Colonel E. U. Prior,

making a tour of the interior

the purpose of getting acquainted
With the people and acquiring a
Knowledge of the conditions surrounding the mining industry and
to learn from the men who operate
the mines and the business men
what legislation would best conduce
to lhe interests ol litis, the lending
-industry of the province.

On being questioned on matters

Juced, or wli.it patching up ol

la ter question Col. Prior said he
knew of no reason why the govern*
ment should appeal to the people as
everything wis working in harmony

H: was asked if any further ep-
propriaiion might be expected lor
p ihlic works in this oistilct this
season, and it waa pointed out to
him that repairs were very needful
on the Ten Mile wagon road, as the
road is in bad condition and a large
amount of ore must be hauled over
this road before winter and n lot of
heavy machinery has to he hauled
up for the Triune and Silver Cup.
The minister replied that it waa too
late tor anything to he hoped lor
- this year. Wo take the liberty ot
thinking differently, however, and
believe if the government did fairly
by this district; gave us our right
propo.tion in respect to the taxes
paid by thc district, the Lardeau
would receive a much greater appropriation for public works.
Col. Prior has had a chance of
learning what is keeping back the
development of the mining industry,
In almost every camp.visited it has
been very pointedly brought to his
. notice that the two per cent, tax is
. on unjust tax, and it hampers the
