(I. N. Surveyors Afala at Work Here.
Tuesday, Surveyor Kennedy ar
rived here from Grand Forks with
a crew. As near as can be judged,
it appears that he is endeavoring
to get down to a lower grade above
the dam, some think for the pur
pose of crossing the river. Those
who are disposed to cast their lot
on the ctld mercies of the C. P. R.,
say the whole display at surveying
is a bluff by the Great Northern, to
force a deal out of the C. P. R. It
is said that the owners of the Graham ranch have offered the pro-
posed new road everything they
want for a depot site, and that one
will be built there, and a wagon
bridge put across the Kettle river
to connect with it. If the road is
built, RusbcII, on the other side of
the boundary line will rise Phoenix
like, not from its ashes, but from
beneath its shroud of moss, and become the principal town on the new
line between Kettle Falls and Republic.
Breen Smelter Site Not Yet Stilled.
Regarding James Breen's proposed smelter in the Boundary district, the following extracts from a
letter received in Greenwood from
a Toronto man who is associated
with Breen in the Dominion Copper company, show that he is evidently awaiting the outcome of the
railway situation before locating
any site.
"Mr. Breen has been here for
some days, but has left for New
York. Plans have been drawn for
the company's proposed smelter,
but the site has not yet been selected. The company will wait until
the railroad situation develops further. It is given out here that both
the Great Northern and V. V. & E.
will build into the Boundary this
year. The Dominion Copper com-
parfy will wait until one or the other road is built, aud the spur reaches the company's mines at Phoenix."
Vancouver, May 1.���Cameron,
the escaped convict, of Columbia
arson fame, was rearrested today

was unique, he having tilted the

Apparently by accident.
Hetty Indemnities.
The indemnity which the powers
is reported will demand from China
is almost double the amount the
same country had to pay to Japan
at the close of the Chinese- Japanese
war. The total indemnity Japan
obtained from China amounted to
��37,000,0000. Japan's expense
in the war with the Celestial Empire was a little over ��6,000,000,
so that she obtained a profit oi ��31,-
000,000. The greatest war indemnity, on record is that which France
paid to Germany after the war of
1870. The war cost Germany 115,-
000,000 dollars. France paid 200,-
000,000 pounds in cash, and besides this, Germany took the provinces of Alsact. and Lorraine, valued at 64,000,000 pounds; general
goods valued at 10,000,000 pounds
and railway carriages and engines
worth 1,000,000 pounds. Germany
also received 12,000,000 pounds as
interest on the indemnity before it was paid. The indemnity
which Turkey was to pay Russia
after the close of the Russo-Turkish
war was settled, after Russia had
demanded over four times as much,
at 32,000,000 pounds. Turkey has
not yet paid the indemnity so that
Russia is still un recompensed for
her expenses in the war. Great
Britain spent 2,200,000 pounds on
her war with China of 1840-42, and
obtained an indemnity of 4,000,000
pounds. In the war between the
name countries of 1857-60, however,
Great Britain spent $34,200,000,
and only demanded from China
the sum of 1,750,000 pounds part of
the indemnity of 8,000.000 taels
going to France.
PnfUtcloiis Legislators Resting- Under a Ftef
ol Trace.
Later telegraphic advices state it
is understood that the railway bill
will come up immediately after the
estimates are disposed of, and that
it will be found that the measure
will be materially modified to meet
the views of those who wish to see
ample provision for competition,
The members seemed to have recognized, that important as the railway question is, and urgent as the
demand may be for early construction, the people of the province do
not want a repetition of the stormy
times which actually brought the
present government into power, because of the weariness of the people
of political strife. The legislature
should realize, however, that the
competitive feature of the bill is its
most important one, so far as the
people at large are concerned. It
is useless to say that competition
will amount to nothing, else why
does the C. P. R. try to move
heaven and earth to prevent such
a condition of things ?
Canada and tbe King's Title.
At a meeting of the British Empire League in London it was disclosed that the colonial office has
been in correspondence with the
government of Canada ia regard
to including Canada in tbe title of
King Edward. The result ut the
negotiations will not be made
known until the correspondence is
published later.

Russia is now the greatest oil-
producing country in the world.
Last year her oil production was
over two billion imperial gallons,
or 120,000,000 gallons more than
the United States. There is apparently no limit to the production. In the Baku region many
wells start out with a flow of 100,-
000 barrels a day, and one is reported which produced 4,000,000
barrels in less than 40 days. Of
course it is usual that the flow
greatly falls off after a time. The
American system of piping the oil
from the place of production to the
port of shipment has been in operation since July last. Oil is more
and more coming into use as fuel
in generating steam for marine and
locomotive engines, for factory purposes and for heating houses.

Steps are being taken between the government of the
Northwest territories aud the
Dominion government to organize the former into a province.	
The bonusing, principle is
bad, and should be abandoned.
If speculative capital cannot
find profitable investment,
without government aid, it
should be permitted to go hungry-      	
The disposition of the government, acquiesced in reluctantly by the opposition, is to
pospone the railway question
to a special session. This
will not raise Mr. Dunsmuir in
:the estimation of nine-tenths
of the voters of the province.
According to popular prejudice and the prattle of a sycho-
phautic press, Joseph Martin
and Smith Curtis are responsible for all the legislative
trouble again this year. If
the matter were investigated
it might be discovered that
they were also responsible for
the Boer ivar and the Chinese
muddle. .
A very large number of the
railway running accidents, are
caused from the spreading of
the rails. It seems as though
it might be an easy matter to
remedy this tenible evil. A
single spike iu a tie to hold
a rail has been abundantly
proven to be insufficient. Two
spikes each side of the rail in
each tie would probably save
many lives, and hundreds of
thousands of dollars worth of
property. At all events it
might be well to try tlie remedy.
According to the testimony
of the managers of the big
lumber concerns on the coast,
those enterprises, owing to
lack of tariff protection, over
production and other troubles,
cannot exist without the help
of cheap Japanese and Chinese
labor. That is the sum and
substance of their testimony
before the Royal commission.
The case they make out is
that by the employment of 20
per cent of this class of labor
they are enabled to pay fair
wages to about 80 per cent of
white labor, which must look
elsewhere for employment if
the great lumbering concerns
are deprived of the small fraction of cheap labor.
The latest from Victoria indicates that the warring elements iu the legislature have
adjusted their differences on
the "Loan Bill" and that that
matter will be fully disposed
of before adjournment, which
will be in a week or so. This
policy it creditable both to Mr.
Dunsmuir and the government
If the government is sincere
in its railway policy why does
it reserve the right in its loan
bill to nullify legislative action by reserving power for itself to award the bonus and
franchise. It is to be regretted, but the people have tenable ground to fear collusion
between the government and
the C. P. R.
The wholesale jobbing merchants of Nelson arc squealing
over the jobbing trade done
throughout this district by tht
agents of the Domion Express
Company. Few outside Nelson have any sympathy for
them. These wholesale merchants are openly accused by
the local merchants in the district which Nelson poses as
center of competing with them
for the retail trade. They will
sell a retailer goods and then
underquote him with a customer. A dose of the express
company's medicine will do
them good.���Silvertonian
Judging from the character
of many lines of goods sent in
to this district by the Nelson

J. K. Johnson, the police magistrate. The affidavit was sworn to

As near as can he judged from
the work of the surveyors who came
here Tuesday, the survey for the

of Huckleberry mountain, thus
leaving Cascade off the line. If so,
it will, they say, involve the boring of a tunnel nearly 1000 feet in
length, which will cost between
$60,000 and $70,000. Under the
new arrangement, a depot may he

We have made many costly
blunders in the construction of our
canals and in the deepening of the
8t. Lawrence. In enlarging the canals we started the work at the
wrong end; we did the work too
slowly and added greatly to the expense hy conducting the improvement as a political rather than as
a purely business enterprise.' The
deepening of the St. Lawrence waterway to 14 feet wub one of the
worst managed pieces of business
that was ever undertaken iu Canada. We hardly yet know where
we are at in this enterprise. It Is
true that we have a 14-foot waterway to Montreal, but no one seeniB
to know how the waterway should
be utilized. There are a dozen different schemes for taking advantage of the system, lint as yet these
schemes are merely theoretical.
Only one project.has materialized,
and that one bits been launched by
citizens of tbe United States. While
the Northwestern Steamship Company of Chicago has established a
regular service between that city
and Europe, we in Canada are still
groping in the dark. We have a
multiplicity of schemes, but no settled policy as to how the deepened
waterway should lie utilized to the
best advantage.
And it looks very much as if the
blundering we have been guilty of
in the deepening of the canals, is
about to be repeated in tbe selection and improvement of a national seaport. The Minister of Public
Works is proceeding on the idea
that Montreal is to be the port of
the Dominion. He has ordered expensive machinery to deepen the
channel between Quebec and Montreal, and to all appearances he
proposes to commit the country to
the expenditure of millions of dollars on this work.
The Minister seems to be running
this work as a side showtif his own.
No general policy for making Montreal the national port has been
laid down by the Government.
There is no unanimity in the country that Montreal should be made
the national port. As a matter of
fact, evidence is accumulating very
rapidly antagonistic to the theory
that Montreal can be converted into a great seaport. It is closed for
five monthB in the year. It is not
accessible to the largest vessels. Its
approach is dangerous, slow and
expensive. It is doubtful if it can
ever be converted into au economical seaport, except at an expense
that is altogether beyond our
The prospects of Montreal as the
national seaport must be very blue
indeed, when the preBS of that city
speaks pessimistically of its future.
The Montreal Herald does not underrate the significance of the transfer of the Leyland Line of steamers
from Montreal to'Quebec during
the coming season. A large part of
the Dominion Line will similarly
be transferred to Portland, "Is it
not possible," says the Herald,
"that progressive development in
the building of steamshipB may
eventually reBtore to Quebec its primary position ? Before long the
channel at New York will have a
depth of 40 feet. Can we confidently hope to have the St. Lawrence
channel brought to that depth ? If
not, and if the commerce between
the Old and the New World continues to be done in ships of ever-
increasing size, will not the inevitable tendency be for the largest and
most economical ships   to prefer
Quebec and for the small ships and
merchants who fill them with cargo to seek the same resort ? That
is the one cloud on tbe horizon for
Montreal, and, while it is easily
possible to overrate its significance,
it iB quite as easy to err in tbe other direction."
Such an admission from a Montreal paper, and from a paper that
supports the Government, ought
surely to put the country on ils
guard against repeating the costly
blunders that have characterized
our canal policy.
We favor Mr. Brock's idea of appointing a commiBjion to study
the transportation question, especially as regards the selection and
improvement of a national seaport
We are now working in the dark.
Mr. Tarte is committing the country to the expenditure of millions
which may be absolutely useless to
achieve the results contemplated,
Not. another dollar should lie spent
in deepening the channel between
Montreal and Quebec, until we
know whether it is feasible to convert Montreal into a deepwater seaport, and, if so, what the cost will
be. As far as the country at large
is concerned Montreal enjoys no
preference over Quebec, Halifax or
any other Cauadian seaport.
Tbe country will insist that the
Government should select as the
national port, the one that proves
the most economical for the distribution of goods. Quebec is practically already equipped aB a modern
seaport. The onus is on Montreal
to prove that tbe country would be
benefited by tbe expenditure of
millions in making a deep ship
channel between tbat city and

The Rojil Visit
Within a very short time,   no
���doubt, active preparations will be
commenced all over the Dominion
for the reception of the Duke and
Duchess of York, says the Nelson
Miner.    Already a committee of
some half a dozen members of the
federal cahinet has been appointed
to draw up a programme.   Beyond
the fact that their Royal  Highness
��� will arrive on or about September
17th and will spend a month in
the country, of which at least a fortnight will be consumed in a trip to
the coast, very little has been set-
I tied with regard to the movements
of the Royal pair in the Dominion.
His Excellency the Governor-General will doubtless accompany the
Duke and Duchess on their journey,
and it is not improbable that a
minister of the crown may form
one of the party.   On the occasion
of the visit of the Prince of Wales,
now his Majesty the King, in 1860,
Sir John Rose, the then   finance
minister, had the honor of travel
ing with His Royal Highness, and
.a very cordial friendship was e��
tablished    between    them.    The
Duke and Duchess are traveling
with a numerous party, so that the
railway companies will be called
upon to make a liberal provision
on the matter of drawing room cars
-and sleepers as such journeys as
may be required by railway.   The
suite of their royal highness numbers about twenty, and in addition
there are no less than 26 servants.
The Third Bridge Across the St. Lawrence.
The St. Lawrence is to be spanned by a third bridge opposite
Montreal. The New York Central
has obtained a controlling interest
in the Montreal Bridge Co., and
the announcement iB made that the
���work of construction will begin at
-once. The Dominion government
is to be asked the usual subsidy of
15 per cent of the cost. A subsidy
has already been informally prom-
.. ised. It is stated that the cost of
the bridge will be six millions and
the terminals four millions more,
The N. Y. Central now enters
Montreal over the C. P. R. The
new bridge is expected to accommo-
.date several other lines.
The coronation of King Edward
will take place al tbe end of June,
1902. Westminster Abbey, according to Truth, will be entirely closed
to the publio for four months prior
to the event, and all services will be
suspended in order tn prepare the
interior for the ceremony. The details of the ceremony will be settled
-next week by a committee of the'
privy council. j
Victoria, being named after the
kindest-hearted queen that ever
ruled over a great nation, bas re<
solved to perpetually celebrate the
anniversary of her birth, the 24th
ot May.
