James De Revler Subbed Harry Howand to
Death.
Last Saturday evening, in a
shack at Denoro townsite, 12 miUs
from Greenwood, Harry Rowand
came to his death by a knife in the
hands of. James F. McGill de Re-
vier. McGill confessed that he
killed Rowand but claimed it was
in self defense.
Deceased was at one time paymaster on an eastern division of
the Canadian Pacific. He leaves a
mother and two sisters living1 in
Toronto. De Revier is a married
man, his wife being in Ottawa. His
mother resides at Quebec. He is 46
years of age, and has recently been
ill. He is well educated, and of

British Columbia, through the medium of an interview in a Montreal
newspaper. Mr. Bass accompanied
Premier Dunsmuir and Attorney-
General Eberts to Ottawa when the
want* of the province were made
known.   He says,  very truly, that j ubly \M^ vote polled, 8,1

LARUE IMMIGRATION  OP  HOMESEEKERS
Coming Prom Eaittrn and Middle Western
, States te the Pacific Const
From reports in the Spokane
papem it appears that the regular
spring tide of immigration from
east to west has already set in, and
eastern people are coming in large
numbers tn seek out a home in this
western land of limitless resources.
Some overland trains into Spokane
bring as high as one thousand of
these immigrants, most of whom
go on to the coast. Speaking on
this subject the Spokesman-Review
said in relation to one family:
"From Doorphan, Mo., 200 miles
south of St. Louis, came a family
party of seven, made up of uncle,
father, three sons and two cousins.
They were C. A. Dale, A. C. Dale,
James Dale, James C. Dale, C. J-
Dale, W. N. Dale, and W. W. Wood.

Some Fish.
The total yield of the catch of
fish in Canada last year was $21,-
Dominion, and sums up by saying 891,706, heing an increase of about
that if the other provinces had con
tributed in the same ratio as British Columbia, the inland revenue
and customs receipts would have
amounted to $110,250,000; while
on the other hand if British Columbia had paid in at the same proportion as the other provinces, the
revenue from the sources named
would have been only $831,250. In
1899 British Columbia paid into
the Dominion treasury from   all
$2,200,000 over the catch of the
preceding year.
BRIEF LOCAL MENTION.
The poetic exuberances of the
bard of Fife, are indicative of an
early spring.
E. H. Robertson, formerly residing at The Cove, on Christina lake,
is now  located  at Robson, where
several former Cascadeans are at
sources   the "sum "of" $3,208,788, j PreBent employed.
while the amount expended by the      Pat Burns   will not   have so
Dominion in return wa* $1,334,018
and among this are' charged items
that really should not be credited.
In fact, to put it shortly, British
Columbia has, since 1872, paid into the federal exchequer some $14-
000,000 in round figures, more than
she has received. This iB allowing
for various subsidies and everything connected directly or indirectly with the province since Confederation.���Nelson Miner.

WILL JIM HILL TAKE IT ALL?
The ranting of a small portion of
the provincial pTess on the coal question at bo much a rant per line in the
interest of the "Seepeearr," is amusing, if not disgusting. The coal
area of British Columbia already
known to exist, covers over a quarter of a million acres, two hundred
thousand of which in the Crow's
Nest section is said to be controlled
by the big Canadian railway corporation and other powerful investment concerns, the government having reserved fifty thousand acres for
* possible case of emergency. Then,
again, there are known to exist in
the Similkameen thousands upon
thousands of acres of coal lands,
���only needing development to supply all present and future needs of
the province, to say nothing
of the limitless deposits of coal
on Vancouver island, which has for
years been exported in vast and increasing quantities. Yet the'organs'
of the great Canadian railway
monopoly would have the people
believe that if any of that product
should lie taken across the international boundary line for use on the
American side, the home smelter
enterprise would receive its death
blow. We do not believe it possible
that the Ottawa government can be
influenced in its consideration of
railway franchise matters by any
such balderdash. There is, even
from present indications,!, suflicient
supply of coal to meet all demands
at home or from abroad for centu-
.ries to come.
Anent this matter, Mr. R. B,
Kerr, of Phoenix, in a communication to the Nelson Tribune, hits the
nail squarely on the head, in our
opinion.   On this subject he says:
"The Associated Boards of Trade
will meet at Greenwood on February 28, and this will undoubtedly
be the most important question before the meeting. It is hoped all
the delegates will go thoroughly
posted on the subject, as their decision will have much to do with
the settlement of the question.
Speaking for myself, I think the
best thing to do would be to put an
export duty on coal. No other
plan could be more effective, and
every other plan is open to some
serious objection. I think it would
be a great pity to resort to the
roundabout device of refusing a
charter to an American railway
into East Kootenay. After the
many fighlB we have had to get
competing railways in this country
it would be a very risky precedent
to go and ask the Dominion parliament to refuse a railway charter.
One great merit about the plan of
putting an export duty on coal is
that the provincial legislature can
handle the question, whereas the
railway question would have to be
fought out at Ottawa. The only objection I have heard to an export
duty on coal is that it would work
a hardship on the coal mines of
Vancouver island. But that could
be got over by making the law applicable only to the mainland, or
to that part of the province east of
Ahe Cascades; a distinction, which
is perfectly constitutional in Canada, and has often been drawn in
other matters. Let us welcome
everybody who wishes to build n
railway to any place, und let us
place a duty of $2 a ton on the export from the province of any coal
mined east of the Cascades.
The Silvertonian : " Jim Hill is
up against a combination of newspapers, who are fighting to keep
the C. P. R. monopoly in power in
the Kootenays. They are waving the
flag and yelling patriotism, regardless of the fact that we are badly in
need of more railroads and railway
competition, that it is a question
of business and bread and butter
for the people and that no amount
of jingoism will make them believe
we do not need more railroads.
The smelting industry will never
be fostered by leaving it at the mercy of a single railroad, the whim of
whose president can shut them out
of business at any time. All talk
of railroad trusts is rot when uttered by those who are fighting for
the greatest cinch on the continent.
Let Jim Hill come and if he does
half as much for British Columbia
as he has done for Montana and
Washington we will double in
wealth and population within two
years.
"According to the say of such men
as Smith Curtis, Jos. Martin and
hundreds of others, the Crow's Nest
Pass coal fields are immense. They
were described lately as having
millions of tons in sight, and none
of the now pro-C. P. R. organs objected to the statements or contradicted them: And in addition to
the then known coal fields, others,
have been discovered in Alberta
and East Kootenay, requiring only
development in order to have an
almost unlimited output. Why
this noise and great commotion
now about the scarcity of coal? If
the fields are as we have been led
to believe there is many times more
coal there than British Columbia
can need, even were her smelters
increased ten fold in number and
capacity. If that section ii: to prosper and open up, a market much
bigger than British Columbia can
hope to be for some time to come,
must be found. The Pennsylvania
coal mines supply Eastern Canada, the Nanaimo coal mines supply San Francisco, and no objection is made by either importer or
exporter. Why then all the present
eruption of patriotism ? Cannot
Hast Kootenay and Alberta supply
Montana in the same way? The
C. P. R. ib only working the country
again as it did when Corbin was
denied a charter for the Kettle
River Railroad."
The all important subject nf general discussion throughout Canada
and the United States to-day is the
Trust, as-illustrated in the amalgamation of great railway and other
interests in which the good of the
masses and the capital of the classes are involved. The combined
power of the already formed and
forming railway trusts are overawing all other forces in society.
It makes and unmakes cities and
governments. In the halls of legislation and on the judicial bench
it alike dictates terms to its own
liking. To stay the march of this
growth of despotism something
must he done, ere a few trust kings
are empowered to hojd in slavery
the balance of the world. The
prospect of the great American
railway combine securing control of
the Canadian Pacific has aroused
all Canada, and set its political
philosophers to scratching their
pules in bewilderment at the greedy
ambition of that collossal institution. In the states it is the governing power, as the C. P. R. has been
heretofore in this country, and may
prove in a few days to still occupy
that "position. It matters little to
the oppressed masses whether the
manipulators of the monopolistic
cinch are Canadians or Americans,
the hardships resulting are equally
obnoxious and detrimental.
So long as the public utilities
and natural resources are allowed
to be acquired and subjected to the
purposes of individual lust and
covetousness, just bo long the many
will be despoiled of their birthrights by the few overtowering
minds,
Railway monopoly, at present
the greatest and moat far-reaching
in its effects of all such concerns,
must be put down, whether found
in single or combined force. All
classes ar<> beginning to realize this
fact; government ownership is
being more and more heralded as
tlie remedy for these putrid soreB
on the body politic, and when they
fully grasp the idea, they will not
stop with railroads, but carry the
reform into all departments where
individual avarice is a bar to general progress and happiness. The
time is not far distant when
"Bryanism" will have become the
popular ism in this country, as it is
to-day in Australia.

consideration, notwithstanding the
determination of the Seepeearr to
erect one, we don't know as
we care to have one erected here,
for many of our citizens will likely
put in a few vegetable seeds,
and it would be unfortunate to
have them destroyed by smelter
gases.

The Rio Grande Western Railway, connecting on .the East with
the Deliver & Rio Grande and Colorado Midland Railways and on
the West with the Southern Pacific
(Central Route) and Oregon Short
Line, is the only transcontinental
line passing directly through Salt
Lake City. The route through Salt
Luke City via the Rio Grand Western Railway is famous all the year
round. On account of the equable
climate of Utah and Colorado it is
just as popular in winter as in summer. Send 2c to J. D. Mansfield,

February W, 1901
NORTHWARD THE STAR OF EMPIRE.
Oold Hunters Still Flocking  to  the  Froien
North For Oold.
Gold hunters, lire still irahued
with the impression that a fortune
for them awaits their coming up in
the frozen grounds of the northern
gold fields, and thither they are
bound h}- thousands. With the
coming of spring travel will, it is
expected, be larger than at any
previous time. As general interesting information we print the following table of distances: The
fare from White Horse to DawBon
over the ice has varied some during
the present winter, owing to lively
competition. At last accounts it
was $100 to Dawson, the stage companies furnishing robes. This however, does not include meals or beds
at road houses, which are extra and
uniform in prices. Namely, meals,
$1.50; lunches, 75; bunks, $1. The
trip over the trail averages about a
week, according to the weather.
The table in full is as follows:

A Move In the Right Direction.
Mr. Robinson from West Elgin,
has given notice in the Dominion
parliament, of a resolution which
he will introduce, doing away with
the present system of free transportation to members of parliament
and to make it compulsory on all
railroads receiving a franchise tn
give passes to members, and that
no mileage indemnity in future be
paid. It ii difficult to believe that
a legislator with a railway pass in
his pocket, worth in some cases
several hundred dollars, can declare
with truth that he is not influenced
by such bestowal of favor on the
part of railway corporations.
Both rain and snow since last we
wrote of the weather.
