The State of Colorado some time
ago appointed a commission to investigate the tax laws of New Zealand and New South Whales. Senator Buoklin of Denver spent some
time in those oountries, making the
fullest inquiries as to the effects of
the land taxation methods there in
vogue. On this subject he issued
a report, strongly favoring the method ot abolishing taxes on improvements, and their imposition on
land values alone. The Governor
of the state, in his annual message,
recommmended the same course.
To effect this change, however, in
that state, would require a constitutional amendment, which can be
obtained only by a two-thirds vote
of both branches of the Legislature
and the majority of the vote of the
people. An ammendment to this
effect was passed by the Senate by
a vote of 26 to 6 and by the House
by a vote of 60 to 11. With this
substantial majority, it is pretty
oertain to receive the support of
the popular vote, which will give
local option to any of the municipalities in the state to abolish
taxation on improvements.

Mr. S. S. Sorenson, a mining ex
pert, has arrived in Rossland from
England, for the purpose, it is stated, of exporting the Velvet mine on
Sophie mountain.
The great question now is, when
will the season for hunting Chinese,
Boers and Filipinos close ? If the
hunt continues there is danger of
the game becoming extinct.
Supt. Hodges, of tbe Granby
smelter has returned from an ex
tensive trip in the east. He reports
that he left orders with a Chicago
firm for machinery to double the
present capacity of his smelter, and
also for reduction works, and that
the same would be in operation in
Grand Forks inside of three
months. y
Mr. Hallahan, Secretary of the
Republio and Kettle River Railroad Co. said to a Republio Pioneer reporter the other day that
there was no truth in the report
that his company had disposed of
its franchise to either Jim Hill or
any other person or company; hut
said his company was making
every possible effort to advance the
matter with the government and it
was supposed that the right of away
over the Indian allotments would
be shortly scoured.

During last week two miners from
Rossland were working on a pro-
pert near the big dam, on the es��t
tide of Kettle river and within the
town limits. Bat little progress was
made, and no well-defined lead was
uncovered, but some rich pockety
on was exposed, and the conditions
seem to point to the presence of a
continuous ore body in the immediate vioinity. The men quit work
Saturday afternoon and returned to
Rossland, for the purpose, it is said,
McOIII Mlslsi School te Visit D.C
McGill mining school of Montreal
will be held this summer in British
Columbia. Twenty student* accompanied by Dr. Porter, protester

which will last several weeks, starting about May 1st. The Canadian
Pacific will provide cars and service. The coal mines, Vancouver
Island, Slocan, Boundary, Rossland and Crow's Nest districts will
be visited.
Fear Hoars Proa Victoria to fttsltao.
Ex-Mayor Redfern of Victoria,
speaking at a mass meeting in that
city in the interest of reviving the
the V. V. & E. subeidy, said: "The
proposed railway (Coast-Kootenay)
will be about 820 miles in length,
and tbe most direct route to the
mining districts, and in conjunction
with the ferry to be operated between Saanich and the mainland,
a proposal overwhelmingly ratified
by the people of Victoria last fall,
will enable one to reach Rossland
from Victoria in four hours." It is
evident that this statement is overdrawn, possibly by the reporter.
To make the trip in 10 hours would
satisfy most poeple. It takes about
60 hours over the present circuitous
and costd about 122, when it should
cost not more than $5.
Too Sellout to Do Penny.
Some of our exchanges are poking fun at Minnesota for attempting to prohibit the marriage of insane or epileptic or idiotic persons,
and requiring that applicants for
a marriage license shall present a
medical certificate. Great efforts
are made at the expense of much
time and money to improve the
breeds of domestio animals, and as
man is supposed to be in many
oases the superior animal, why
should we not seek the propagation
of his kind under the most favorable
conditions ? It is a terrible crime
for diseased persons to marry and
curse their offspring with a life of

It looks as though the Great
Northern Railway company means
business of an active nature. There
are two surveying crews at work
between the boundary line near
here and Marcus. Tuesday, one
outfit, which is camped near Hall's
ferry, hooked up the line at the
the boundary which was recently
run through Cascade. More and
more the claim tbat dirt would begin to move on the line of this survey before the first of May is being
confirmed. Let it fly, the sooner
the better.
The Chief Jattlce't Patter Date.
Rev. Angus McColl, father of
Chief Justice McColl of British
Columbia, died at Chatham last
Tuesday aged 88 years. Deceased
was the first Presbyterian minister
at Chatham, and for 46 years waft
inspector of the public schools of I
the city.
Press Comment.
Gen. Ian Hamilton, addressing
the Authors' Club in London recently made the curious suggestion
that the Boer prisoners should be -
sent to Canada to work on the railways, where they would learn the
English language and become imbued with English sentiments. We
think the Boer prisoners, if put to-
work on the patriotic (?) Canadian
Pacific Railway or some other Canadian lines, would be more apt to -
learn the Slav, Galician, Dago or
any other foreign language and become imbued with their sentiments
rather than British. Another
horde-of these foreign cattle, said
to be Galicians, arrived in Fernie
this week and were put to work on
the C. P. R. sections along the line*
in this district. How long do
British citisens intend to tolerate
this sort of thing ?.���Fernie Fret
A creed organ in Toronto cries
out that now is the time for iti
church to be up and doing. Canada is prosperous from ocean to>
ocean, and 140,000 must be raised
for missions in tbe west. We arc-
not suffering out here from the
lack of creeds. Better spend th*
money around home. In Toronto
hundreds of girls work for wage*
that would searcely feed a canary-
bird out west. Most of their employers can be seen in church every
Sunday shouting to the Lord a*
though He was deaf, and would'
overlook them. In Toronto hundreds of girls walk tbe streets at
night pandering to vice. Better
spend less money on faraway field*-
and give these girls a chance. Se*
that female wages are raised, and
many a young woman will call yon
blessed. Save bodies and the soul
will not go astray. If the eastern
church folks will raise up those
around them they will have plenty
to do without increasing their
western connections. Instead of
sending us missionaries to fill th*
air with useless talk about th*
mythical past, and blind guessea
about tbe future, it should be the-
other way on. We should send th*
east missionaries to preach th*
gospel of humanity, and improv*
the social condition of those who
labor for a pittance, especially in
large cities.���Ledge.

The fantastic notions he pre- j market. In this matter there
tends to entertain relative to!is an opportunity for the Do-
the Crow's Nest Pass Southern minion government to do the
railway franchise   being   applied for by the Crow's   Nest
Coal company, do not comprise all   the "irregularities"
of his  disordered conception.
He would have a law, if he
could find enough M. L.   A's
minded like himself, put on
the statute book designed to
prevent the people,  through
chosen   representatives,  from
personally  appearing in  the
presence   of the government
ministers   and   pleading   the
justice of their cause by reasonably  stating their   needs
and desires.   The   statement
recently made by Mr. Houston
that he was elected by an irregular constituency is probably true,  but when he   attempts to have  irregular notions   embodied   in   law,   he
should be sat upon with  sufficient gusto to press all  the
irregularities out of him.   He
is   greatly   annoyed   by   the
presence in Victoria of  delegations sent there by the people from various parts of the
province to interview the government on matters of great
importance to them,  and  is
seeking to have a law made "to
abolish the   delegation    nuisance."    There is more need
of. the legal abolishment   of
the  Houston nuisance,     He
must not entertain the idea
that because he has the friendship and support of the C.P.R
that he can gag delegated public expression or influence.
Another   evidence of   Mr.
Carnegie's unprecedented liberality and  philanthropy has
recently   been  manifested  in
his princely gift of $5,200,000
for   public  libraries in  New
York City. The plans include
the     establishment     of    62
branches in different  parts of
the city and Mr. Carnegie, as
in his other similar gifts, asks
only   that   the city   provide
sites and for the maintenance
of   the    institutions.     With
other gifts that Mr.  Carnegie
has made during the past few
months to libraries and public
institutions and with his magnificent   gift   of    $5,000,000
to his  employes,  this makes
upwards of $25,000,000   that
he has dispensed for philanthropic and educational insti-
taxpayers of Canada a good
turn, but the pity is that nowadays governments seek more
to please the monopolists than
the struggling masses. No
wonder such men as Rockefeller fight the effort to establish an income tax in the United States. Tlie English, income tax rate levied against
Rockefeller would net the U.
S. government nearly $800,-
Mark Hanna.
The New Zealand single-
tax method is to be adopted
in Colorado, which will remove
improvements from the list of
assessable property.
What is all this talk about
negotiating with the C. P. R.
for the withdrawal of its opposition to the proposed railway plans to the government ?
Does it mean that the government must have the sanction
of that corporation before it
can legislate for the people on
railway matters ?   If so, it is
time   that   condition   should
cease  to exist.   That Jonah
should be  thrown overboard.
Three days, or more, for that
matter, in the whale's stomach
would be a good lesson for it,
one it sadly needs.
Relations between   Russia
aud   Japan   are very   much
strained, the tension Hearing
the danger point.   Since the
Japs wolloped John Chinaman
they have been possessed of a
swelled estimate of their military prowess, aud are eager to
try conclusions even with the
Great Bear, if he goes curveting around Miss Korea with
the intent of   alienating her

Mr. Robert Kelman, accountant

Mwot> 30, HOI
Mr. Richardson, member of the
Dominion house from Lisgar, speaking on the motion to appoint a railway commission, made some important statements. The imforma-
tion is timely and valuable, and
-shows what Canada has already
���done for railway promoters. He
"The  people  in  Canada   have
given in cash, up lo the present
time���and I include the municipalities,  the provincial governments
and the Dominion  government���
$223,000,000 in cash for railways.
From what the minister of the interior, Hon. Mr. Sifton, told us the
other day,  it  appears  that the
country has contributed 60,000,000
acres of land for the construction
of railways.   You will agree with
me that, in view   of   the  statements made by my honorable friend
(Mr. Davis,) and in view of the
faetB produced in this house from
'time to time, $3 an acre ie a very
moderate estimate of the value of
this  land.    Estimating on   that
'basis, you will find that the people
-of this country have given $403,-
000,000 for   the   construction   of
railways.   Just let the honorable
members of this house pause and
think for a  moment  what  that
meant.   It means that the people
'have given far more than would
build the entire system of railways
���in this country.   And what de we
own ?   We own the Intercolonial
Railway, which, I presume actually
-cost $25,000,000- we paid $50,000,-
000 for it, but it was not worth
���that amount of money.   Think of
this   expenditure   in   connection
with the proposition that we shall
-attempt to regulate rates by appointing a commission.   We cannot do it.   The only way in which
rates can be effectively controlled
in this country is for the government to own and control one road
on which there shall be no overcapitalization, and on which fair
rates shall be charged, based on the
actual cost of the road.   When the
government takes that position I
assert, we shall have the transportation question effectively solved. As
':. I have said, I am not one that says
that the country should, at present,
go into the enterprise of controlling
all the railroads of the country.
But I would be willing to go even
that far, if we cannot get justice
in any other way.   Look at the
-example of the Australasian colonies.   According to an article in
the North American Review tbat I
Tead recently these colonies have
paid $600,000,000 for their   rail
ways.   At present these railways
charge more favorable rates than
ours do, rates in accordance with
the condition of the settlers, and
they are able to pay three per cent
on that vast sum of money, and
pay operating expenses as well.   If
that can be done in the Australian
colonies, why can it not be done in
Canada ?   It is perfectly true that
we have made this poor start; it is
perfectly true we have paid this
vast sum of money and have practically no return for it.   But, surely sir, we are not going to perpetuate this colossal error.   The time
'has come when the transportation
question is knocking at the door of
parliament, and unless the people's
representatives deal with this question, I want to say tbat the people
will deal with their representatives
later on."
