Regular Monthly Meeting of The
Sullivan Uroup Mining Compuny
At Spokane.
A regular monthly meeting of the
directum of the Sullivan Croup
Mining Company was held at Spokane on Thtiraday January ltith, at
which Mr. .lumps Kinlny was elected
aa General Manager of the mines,
and Superintendnnt of the Company's smelter at Marysville.
It waa also decided that the head
office of the Company ahould be located at Marysville.
Another mutter of importance
which was announced at the meeting was that the Sullivan ores was
self-fluxing, and that iu the future
no ore would be shipped from out
side points for that purpose.
Mr. M Bride's Report.
The premier Iitiii upon the
table of the House yes,entity his
r p ri mi his "Hett. r Terms"
mission. It is a very Interesting
paper and we produce it in full
this morning, omitting the sev
eralappendices. We invite careful perusal of it. Mr. McBride
is very much lo be congratulated
upon having produced a state
paper of more than ordinary
. value. There is a definiteness
about it that permits of no misconstruction and he has unquestionably brought the issue be-
tween the province and the Dominion to a shape that must be
regarded as highlf satisfactory
even by British Columbians who
tind themselves unable to agree
with his general policy.
The point not to he lost sight
of is that Mr McBride's speeitic
object was to prevent the passing of a measure which should
declare the conclusion of the
Inter-Provincial Conference tiual
and unalterable. As he says, no
legislation cun bo final aud unalterable. As he says, no legislation can be tiual and unalterable, for no parliament eau bind
itself, uot to speak of its successors, to a certain line of
action; but to permit a measure
to be passed containing such au
expression would be construed
!*-S P. S".br"1isS'On   on   tbo   p.nt't. ot.
this province to it as adetermin
atiou of the 'Better Terms"
case for British Columbia. If the bill had been allowed
to pass with the objectionable
words in it. aud if at a subsequent
day it should be proposed to
again amend the British North
America Act or in some other
way to grant this province what
her people consider her just
rights, the expression "final and
unalterable" would have stood iu
the way, and we would have been
asked why we did not persevere
in our protests to the very end
Thus Mr. McBride's object was
simply to keep the door open for
future negotiations, and to pre
veut the province from being
estopped by un implied acquiescence in a "linaland unalterable"
settlement. How well he sue-
ce. ded is shown by Lord Flgin's
despatch of July IH, which says:
"Imperial Act cannot affect right
of future occasion for a recognition of our just rights, that we
have allowed Ihem to lapso. Mr
McBride could not hope to pre
vent the passage of a measure
asked for by the Parliament of
Canada and concurred in by all
the provinces except British Co
lumblu, but he could and did prevent the action of the provinces
uud of the Dominion and Imperial parliaments being construed at any time in the future
us conclusive against any claims
which the province may put for
In a mutter of this nature the
transaction must be taken us a
whole. As the various incidents
connected with this question
arose there were naturally some
differences of opinion upon them;
but now that we have the full
account presented, now that we
are enabled by Mr. McBride's
report to take a bird's oyo view
of the whole, the strength of the
government's position is clear
and eminently satisfactory
to all who appreciate the
nature of the case. We find Mr.
McBride caieful to reiterate his
protest against our special claims
being regarded as something lo
be adjusted between British Columbia and the other provinces
and asserting lhat they are mat
lees to be determined between
tliis province and tho Dominion.
We find him securing from tho
Colonial .Secretary au interpretation of the IJ. N. A. Act, the
justice of which can hardly
be disputed. It will be Found in
paragraph '27 the lelterof Mr. H.
Bertram Cox, whieh is as follows:
"Lord Elgin fully appreciates
thu force of I he opinion expressed
that the B. N. A. Act was the result of terms of union agreed upon by the contracting provinces
nnd Hint ils tonus call noi he nl
'tered merely at the wish of the
Dominion government*" We

upon Which the I'leuier
of Cnuaiiu laid special
stress und to which the
legislature of ihis province
took absolute exception, (in
ihe whole it was a good showing
-a Very excellent showing. We
greatly congl'lllulate Mr. McBride upon his report, and we
greatly congratulate the province thai at this very critical
juncture in its relations with Ihe
Dominion, its affairs were in the
hands ol' a public man, who
never for a moment lost sight of
the object which he had in view
and with much ability aud adroitness secured the fullest possible acknowledgement of everything he had set out to obtain.

Smith Premier
has widened its market until it includes the whole civilized world; has become the
typewriter of over 300,000
operators and has, during
1906, broken every previous
record of sales, because it
has from the beginning best
met every typewriter need.
THE tri-color feature of
the Smith Premier
Typewriter is recognized as the greatest improvement in modern typewriter construction- yet in
providing it, none of the
strong fundamental features, for which the Smith
Premier hat; always been
noted, have been sacrificed.

demands whether ii is noi
possible to dosuineihing toalmto
the cosl of supplying school
There are scores of irate
parents in Cranhrook today and.
there is reason in Iheir nun
plaint, We in this province pay
a heavy and excessive toil lo the
school hook monopoly in lln1
Enst, ami the sooner there is in
troducod a now order of things
the better ii will be for the
people of thn province. There
are difficulties in ihu way of deal-
line with the issue of school
books independently of ihe pre
sent publishers, but because the
problem is dlfric-ull is no
reason why we should
noi apply ourselves to
liml 11 solution. We are satisfied
that Hie children nre called upon
lo provide themselves wilh loo
many books; that thu Looks they
do gel are not inir valuo for the
money paid tor 'I i, and lhat a
way could be found lokeep in the
province llie •frenlei' pari u! Ihe
money il is necessary lo pay for
the school book' service,
The solution of this problem
