ELOCUTIONARY
MEMORANDUM  OF REASONS  FOR
EXTENSION  OF  LEAD  BOUNTY.
The Smelting works of tbe Sullivan Group Mining Company nt
Marysville, on the North Star branch
of the Canadian Pacific Railway
(Crow's Neat Pass branch), fourteen
miles from Cranbrook, have been
completed, equiped and put in operation within the last three years.
Prior to that a large expenditure
had been made on smelting works at
that point, but tbe work was discontinued and tbe project practically
abandoned. The Sullivan mine, the
property of the company, is the pro
ducer of a low grade ore, difflcutl to
treat on account of excessive sulphur and zinc contents. At the
present moment there is commonly
reported to be in sight in the mine
twenty years' supply of nre for a
smelter of the capacity of one hundred tons per day. Under the encouragement afforded by t lie bounty
tbe smelter was completed and has
been operated so far. and through
the introduction 't the HfimtYrigton
Heberleln process, tbe lirst to be in
stalled in Canada, a metnllurglcnl ,
success has been made of the treat- p' *
ment of this ore. Two small towns.
Marysville and Kimberley, each with I
a population of several hundreds,
have sprung up in connection with
mine and smelter. Great progress
has also been made in the demonstra
tion of the capacity of the surrounding land for agricultural purposes,
and a considerable population,ranchers nnd farmers, is growing up
around these works. .Marysville,
moreover, is at the portal of the St.
Mary's valley, a district, believed to
be of groat promise as a mineral
producer, and the continued operation of tbe mine, smelter and branch
railroad is essential to the development of this now district. The Sullivan Company lately have had the
benefit of the extraordinarily high
prices prevailing in the world's market for lead, but these prices have
suddenly fallen to n low level, with
the prospect thnt low prices may
prevail for some years. We of
course hnve reason to fear that the
business that haB been carried on
lately on the basis of about 20X
for lead will be impracticable with
lead at  12.C or less.
Tbe town of Moyie, at which tbo
St. Eugene mine is situated, Is but
twenty miles from Ornnbrook, and
has supported, since the bounty
period began, a thriving population
of acvoral hundreds. We understand
that the grade of ore in the St. En-
irene mine is no longer what it has
been in tbe pnst and even that prop
erty is liable to be seriously bnttdi
capped  if the  bounty  now ceases,
We recognize that bounty provis
ions nre In their nature temporary
and terminable, hut in view of tlio
fact thai the govornmonl have been
fortunate in the occurrence of nper
ind of very high prices for lend
thereby cutting down tho expend!
lure they had contemplated in tlto
payment of bounty to about one
third nr ono-qtinrtor of the amount
estimated WO think that the Govorn
meat could well afford to make, and
would be Jl)at 1 Hod in maklnc. tho ex
tension of tho period now asked for
The towns nf MnryavlHo, Klmbnr
ley und Moyfe nre important tribii
taries of Cranbrook, the country is
new and development lias but begun.
Should anything occur to brine
about the suspension of tbe Sullivan
or St, Eugene mines a great setback
would be given to our three great
staple industries: mining, lumbering
and agriculture.
We ntrnncly urge that the requost
contained in our resolution hn compiled with.

POLITICAL    POINTERS.
Tbe prophetic eye of Wm. Sloan,
M. 1'. would be all the better for a
competent prophetic occtllist. Mr.
Sloan warns parliament that unless
so and so is done British Columbia
wiil cut loose from British connections and become a colony governed
from Tokio unit i'ekin. We wonder
what relation Mr. Sloan bears to
tlie Irish Home ruler.
"It is meet" said Mr. R. L. Borden, concluding his reference to the
New Brunswick Minister,"that a gov
eminent which has protected the.
perpetrators of the Brock ville and
Huron election frauds and other similar crimes should have culled to its
council the politician wbo as attorney general of New Brunswick, refused to bring to justice tbe criminals who stuffed the Rothesay electoral lists, and weie pronounced by
judges on the bench to he guilty nl'
theft, perjury and forgery."

Let the Big Seven disclaim, and

resolutions in denunciation nf Mr.
Dunsmuir, the Influx nf Orientals,
nr any other matter nf interest tn

and the Ottawa machtno will still
stand put nn the Immigration qnea
tion Prom the appended statement
nf Sir Wilfrid, it is evident thut litis nf ttie opinion that British Columbians are still in Hie backwoods ami
know nothing of treaty making, ,,f
parliamentary business, or how tn
govern thomsolvos. This is what ho
iilys about  the   Japanese  inlllix:
"I know my words will be repurt
ed In British Columbia, hat I speak
| here in the same laaguage that I
wnnld speak there, if it were my
privilege tn he there: but 1 tell them
'you hnve your views upon this
question.1 y ire hostile tn the Immigration nf Oriental races, I do
lint rule fur your sentiment, and I
believe yuu ure   making a mistake."
This is the answer that Sir Wil
Iliil Laurier hurls buck to the labor
im: men nf this province. He don't
care fnr uur sentimontB, we nre bos-
tile tn Jup Immigration, we are mis
taken. Laurier, the creator nf l'n

operators and has, during
1906, broken every previous
record of sales, because it
has from the beginning best

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 has always heen
noted, have heen sacrificed.

Mr. Borden for llie position of
First Minister. Perusal of the
extracts quoted will make this
sn cleur that no nrgiiment is
necessary. 'I'lie      Liberals
assembled in provincial convention, following the action of tho
Legislature, declared in unmistakable iiTins iii favor nf a continued iigitntKiti Inr justice In

We do not think Ihul either

that Mr McBride represented a

by ihe British Columbia electorate in a manner that cannot
be mistaken    Under these eii-
these were all disposed of bef

matter of groat surprise thai the
