Tiafer Liarif fcgilaliaii Not Stable
Its Abolishment A Help To Bri
tiih Columbia   Lumber
Interests Prospering.
William Shannon, a well known
lumberman of Vancouver, arguing that
there should be a change In the timber
la we of thia province, to in au re stability
for the encouragement of capitalists,
"During the last season a large number of capitalists visited the province
with a view ol engaging In this industry
but after becoming acquainted with our
timber lawa.aud su1. milling the same
to some of ths beat legal advisers In the
province, they came (o tbe conclusion
that ihere waa.not sufficient security to
warrant then in Investing Urge sums
in the industry.
There are two ways that timber can
be acquired from the government, one by
lease for 31 years and another by special
licepce running from year to year.
'On the leasing plan the timber is put
np. for competition and aold to tue
highest bidder. This might appear fair
to tbe person not understanding tbe
position of affaire in pur country, but
to a person acquainted with tbe circumstances it is evident that lt works a
great injustice, as a man m'gbt bave a
gang of men out all summer paying a
large sum of money to cruise and locate
timber, only to have seme one who baa
not left hia office bidding against him
for the same limiia. Therefore the lease
law la a dead letter, and there Is no
Umber betag applied for under the leas
ing plan. Io Ontario and other countries
where tbe leasing p'an is adopted, the
government finds the timber, cruises
and surveys it, and then leases it to tbe
highest bidder who can aee its eiact
location on the map, Tbe other plan
—special license—by which ftioo a year
is paid for one section a mile square,
haa proved in measure satisfactory to
tbe government and local loggers with
email capita).
The last year we have had more than
three tines tbe revenue we. have ever
had bafbie from our timber owing to
these special licence* being taken up.
A great deal of thia land taken up under
licence is producing a handsome revenue
to the government, but is really worthless even for timber or anything else.
Tbere must be fully 50 per cent of al
special licence claims that are useless.
Still, if these persona are witling t° p**y
the government under such conditions.
It is their lookout, and it ia certainly a
revenue producing proposition. These
licences are renewable from year to year
and to us wbo ere e*q*iintcd with tbe
country, ll is satisfactory that it should
be so. Capitalists, however, are not
satisfied, and the intercuts of capitalists
should certaiuly be considered in opening t«p the timber claims.
'The contautlou of tbe capitalist operator is this; A man take** up a valley aa
a logging claim and installs machinery end build a railway costing from >jo,-
aoi) \a f35,000. and is not assured tbat
the licence will not be raised from year
to year, lie does not know, In a strictly business sense, whether he may not
be frozen out. If be could have an as-
su ranee from the government that for
twelve years' time hia licence would
not be increased to more than at least
laoo during that time for each section,
it would 00 doubt be satisfactory. It Is
thought that the government should
emend the set In such s manner as to
tnske it binding on tbem to renew the
special licence from year to year fur 1
apace of twelve years snd during that
lime the government could not do more
than double the licence,
I had an eiperleace that justifies me
ln Mjing thai s very Urge amount of
cspttal wss driven out of the country by
capitalists declining to tnveat Uat season
after looking Into titles end guaratces
given by the government on special
licences. Another reason why thia additional security should be given is tbat
banks-decline to advance mane* on.
special licence propositions. Thus many
men without Urge meana are prohibited
from engaging in this Industry.
"Those wbo are Inposseaslon of crown
granted properties, and have the. location! on the waterfront, which enables
them to take out their timber easily,
have ao great advantage over holders,
of licences tbat the latter cannot compete wilb them all, and for this rest on,
if tor no other, new enterprises should
be encouraged, Another matter that
abould be attended.to by tbe government is lhe appointment of men to see
tbat Ibe wood U clean .cut. tor- in too
many cases fully one-third oi tbo timber
la wasted in the woods."
Usltta- Statu Tariff es Luraksr.
Tacoma, Feb.  9 :   Lumbermen, and
shinglemen here are getting scared
over tbe prospect of i repeal of tbe
latiff on lumber and sh'tigles. Henry
Hewitt says the repeal of the null! on
conl was the entering wedge, and that
it is only a question of rime when Ihe
latnbertariff will he eliminated. The
tariff iu %2 per M. on rough Itmiber, $2 -
Super M. wheu auifaced on une mile,
ami $3 j'l-i M. surfaced ou two sides.
Northwestern lumbermen are vitally in-
teteiteil it) the continuance of I lie latin"
ott account of lhe near pioiluiily ol ths
vast forests of Urhish Columbia. At
present tbe tariff is practically prohlbl
live, only a carload of shingles crossing
le international boundary line into
America from time to lime. Utile tariff
is dune away with, the lumber and shiu-
glemeu will liuve a vigoroua rival from
a country heretofore so handicapped
that competition was ii ipossib.e.
Prank  u   Cole, editor ol the West
Coast aud I'uge! Sum d Lumberman,
bas sent out acures ol letters in arc
endeaver lo organize the lumbering Interests to fight for tbe taiill', antl if need
be, send a lobby to Washington for tbe
purpose. Today be acknowledged tbat
he bad received few replies to bis
letters snd little encouragement. He
believes Jtbe tariff will be eliminated
some time neat year. While in the
Beat recently, Mr. Cole interviewed
numerous white pine lumbermen relative to tbe tariff, and they declared
tbey would not put up another dollar to
fight for the taiiff or to support to fight
for the tariff or to support a lobby at
Washington. Tbis leaves tbe entire
queation with Western lumbermen.
Mr. Cole says Canadian mills are having all they can do to supply tbe home
demand, and for a year or so their competition would not materially cut in on
the business of the mills on the American side of the line.
Mr. Hewitt and others believe that
the repeal of the tariff would mean tbe
immediate establishment in the timbered regions of the Dominion of Canada
of numerous modern sawmills, cutting
hundreda of thousands of feet of lumber
dally. Thia would be flooded on the
American market and wonld produce a
big decrease In preaent prices. Anticipating tbe elimination of tbe tariff. Mr.

Tacoma, Feb 9: Lumbermen here
aay 1903 will be the biggest year for the
industiy the state basever seen. Orders
already in sight overtax 'he capacity of
tbe milts for tbe coming spring, summer and autumn. The demand for
Washington shingles is proving unparalleled. Eastern shippers are already
placing large orders, aud as aoon as
spring opens a great increase in tbe demand is expected from the Mississippi
valley states. Tbe demand for lumber
Is being augmented in a great degree by
the ceaseless requests of the railroads
for siding, bridge timbers, loug timbers
snd other rough lumber used in the construction of railroads and rolling equipment. Henry Hewitt, of tbe St. 1'anl
and Tacoma Lumber company-, said today that these railroad orders were be*
Ing refused in great numbers by the
mills, which were nleady finding it impossible to cut sufficient lumber to supply more pressing demands of corporations aud private customers. Mr. Hewitt
ei plains tbe big Increase in the demand
by increased building operations iu tbe
cast and by the fact tbat Washington
timber ia invading territory tbe patronage of which has heretofore been held,
by ahippera of southern pine aud other
southern timber. Year by year Washington fir and cedar are crowding
southern lumber out of the Central
Mlsslppl valley states and driving it
farther South. At tbe present time
cedar and fir from the Northwesters being shipped direct to St. Louis, which,
but.a few years ago, used tbe southern
timber almost exclusively. Tbe red
ceder shingles of Washington and Oregon are also driving out the express
shingle in territory which it has held for
years. Unite a few cedar shingles are
now being shipped into Oklahoma and
Northern Texas, which are practically
tn tbe back yarda of the southern mills
cutting tbe cypress shingle. Tliecypresi
shingle la fully sb lasting as tbe cedar
shingle, but it weighs two-thirds more,
and this militates against Its aale,
Frank D Cole, editor of the Weat Cosat
and I'uget Sound Lumberman, aald today tbat the number of ahlngle orders
already placed was surprising, and with
tbe present high prices of the product,
pointed to a most prosperous year lor

not a man is working at the Morrissey mines, all carpenters, laborers and engineers going out in sympathy with the miners.
The same rate of wages is asked for here as is in effect at Fernie,
the present rate being as much as 20 cents per ton lowee in one or
two instances. All three mines are closed and unless concessions
are made by the management a long strike is expected as the
miners are in good shape financially.

Over $2,000,000 on Conservative Estimate.
Local holders of stock iu the Sullivan
miue have received a loug circular letter
tbls week from President O, 11. Turner,
who urges certain steps to be taken to
aave the property from the burden of
debt now banging over It, aud secure enough capital to finish the smelter
at Marysville and build a lead refinery
aa well, Mr. Turner estimates that with
200 000 tons of ore in sight, carrying 30
per cent lead and 14 ounces in silver,
valued et S20 40 per ton, would bring
the gross value of ore in sight up to
$4 000,000 London quotations, ut $j.2;S,.
000 net, based on Hong Kong prices, aa
that would be the market for the Sullivan product. Mr. Turner's results are
based on the following figures:
Oue ton of ore carrying 30 per cent
lead contains 600 pounds "of lead. An
allowance of 10 per ccut loss in smelting
reduces this lead to 54a pounds. This
lead at Hong Kong prices Is worth 2*4
cents per pound, which makes the lead
value of each ton of ore $14 85 The silver value of 14 ounces ot silver at 45
centi per ounce is $6 30. The Houg
Kong value of our ore is (21.15 per ton.
It will cost ua to mine, roast ami smelt
our ore, and to refine ami market the
product approximately the following

Mr. Turner explained that the bank
indebtedness of *•**•..■■■-. at lhe time the
$100,000 were raised to build the smelter
was paid out of the smeller fund, leav*
ing $80,000 This was spent and debts
contracted amounting to $38,000, making tbe cost of the smelter to date 1118,-
000. It is the intention to raise $100 000
ky a second loan to be expended as follows:
Payment unsecured debt 8 38,000
Completion of smelter    40.000
Building lead refinery     15,000
Sinking working shaft at mine.     7,000
Tbe heavy stockholders have agreed
to the issuing of $200,000 in bonds secured by mortgage on mtoe and smelter,
one half to be taken by makers of first
loan, the other half to lie placed in the
east by aid cf a bonus of stock, if not
taken by stockholders. Small holders
of stock wbo do not care to take a small
proportion of the loan are requested to
surrender 20 per cent of their holdings
to give aa tbeir part of the bonus.
Tbis plan is feasible but must be acted
upon at once, as tbe holders ofthe indebtedness are pressing for a settlement
and there is no time lo lose if lhe stockholders with to save their stock.

iioud fur ihis District,
When the Untied States congress took
ufl the duty on cual ior one year, few
people slopped lo consider that sucb ac 1
tion would have a very beneficial result
oil business in South Ba*l Kootenay. Yet,
this  is ibe case, since ii will be the
cause   ol   Increasing   lhe   conl    out
put     Ol     lhe     Crows     Nest     COllrlSS
to    the     full    cipacity    during    the;
coming  vear     This particular  demand J
will have a direct effect upon the Mot* ;
rlssey mines, -since ihe Great Northern !
extension gives direct transportation
between that mine and the nnin line of
the Great Northern lu the stales.
The amount of coal fiom the Crows
Nest Pass fields going to the United
S'atiB, through tbe port of Gateway,
over the Cie.it Northern's branch from
Jennings, is 300 cars, of twenty ions
each, uday.au increase of fifty cars since
the repeal of lhe duty on foreign coals
by congress a few weeks ago. All this
fuel is fur use along the line of the
Great Northern, and according to statements given out iu Seattle recently,
within a short time tbt- imports of this
coal will be ai least SoO cars per day or
iii.ooi 1 tons.
Al lhe time the duty was taken off
coal, ihe Great Northern was paying
jitlo the customs department 83.350 a
day in duties a' 67 cents a 'on. Ou the
amount exporting at the present time
it is saving ft 020 a day nnd with ihe
Import increased to 500 cars a day, the
saving in duly lo the road, by the act of
congress, will be $6 71m a day.
"When the Jennings branch was opened." said a well-posted official recently
"the coal imports ofthe t'.reut Northern
railroads were twenty five trainloails a
day, each train having len cars of twenty
ions each. This amount was wholly itt-
sulliitent for ihe needs of the road, nnd
it was the intention to increase the output of the mines ns fast as possible so
us to double it, Tli's was being done nt
the time congress look iff lhe duty 011
coal, and, of course, thisuiadeit possible
to increase the output in more wa j s than
: "The mines ut Morrlssey are now
working night and day, and cars are being rushed in as fast as tbey can be
secured. To meet the demmid for cars
some of which have been engaged In the
coal trade of the road in Montana, are
being taken off lite Montana and sent
to Canada,
'•The force at this mine has been in
creasnl uud will be kept as Inrge as lhe
capacity of the mine can be wo- ked fo.
the next year.
"The amount of coal which tbe Great
Northern is bringing in at the present
tjtiie may seem large, but it is not nearly
enough to supply ihal road alone. It le
the intention of the Great Northern to
finally develope the mines at Crow's
Nest I'ass until the Northern Pacific
and Iturlingtoti can be supplied with il
on their mountain divisions, This, how
ever, will probably not occur this year,
or while the duly Is lA" for the reason
that at the present time the Great
Northern has no way ol delivering the
p'roduct without a long round about
haul of tunny miles. It is an almost
settled fact that the woik will be extended from Morrissey to Ferule the
entiling year, rm that the (.rent Northern
can tap the Coal Creek mine."
and like all tbe rest he hnd a good
word fer the place. He says the losur*
ance business Is Improving wonderfully I
since thc recent firea In Morrlssey and
Cianbrook, and the people are beginning
to realize the danger tbey are tunning
in not protecting themselves.

After that he dropped lu pretty regular, always playing in the same llstleai

hardly ever losing a bet.
It ran along In this way about six

Indication of the fust life he was lead-

Not that it's an uncommon thing in

"What Is It?"
"You haven't heard? She's to marry

change for the worse, and it did. Moreover, from that ou there wus a marked
change In the man. Ho was dissipating
moro than ever.

—they hold a street carnival here every

all day, but about 8 o'clock, when the

I cannot say I remember them," replied Mr. F—, "but there are only

hia own jiiil-s'tnent.
lu order to give matters a business
Kmk, as tie ptlt it. tlie promoter, whose
name was Phllbrlek, passed over 10,000
shares to Nash at $.'» per share and in
return required a promissory note duo
in six months. Then an agreement wns
drawn up to the effect that the notes
ssbould lie invalid. This was to bllml
(Other investors, ln plain words. John
ps'ash Bold his name for those .chares
land was assured over nnd over ngnlu
.that his annual dividends would
amount to nt least bKi per cent. By
this explicit statement 1 have published
my client not only ns a fool, but us the
"Willing confederate of n swindler, yet
1 have laid to give facts to make my
•story cigar.
Nash wns mnde to believe that no one
pise would sutler if he got this stock
gratis. The agreement was of course
made out lu duplicate, and ihe old man
deposited his copy In the safe. Phil-
brick saw him nt Intervals, always
making the most Uatterlng reports
about the mine, and everything went
smoothly for a few weeks. Then, six
wi'uks after tho agreements were
drawn up, on some excuse or other
they were compared. After the comparison Nash returned Ills copy to tho
■Strong box, and that was tlie last he
saw or tliQught of it for ihe next three
or four months; in fact, until Phllbrlek
"vvalkfil In upon him tine ilay antl asked
•whether he would be ready to pay Uie
note'nt maturity. Then it transpired
that the supposed contract was no contract ut all, but a vastly different docu*
lite. Both were too surprised to move
or speak. The Stronger was the lirst to
recover, nml bo wiled out:
"Well, I'll be hanged 1 Say, now, if
I'd known It was you I'd have kept
i-lear of the place. You bet your lite
you're the last until I'd want to rub."
"So you are here lo rob me'*" I until
ss I looked liiin over.
I "It looks like 11. eh?" be laughed as
he pointed lo Hie Imiulle,   "Say, It's all
■ mistake, mr I'm sorry."
.    "Who are you?"
I "Don'l you I'ememlierV Take a phh!

i Five years bel'ure 1 had defended
Jimmy itlakesly on the clinrgo of burglary und wot him -It. If the press was
unanimous in saying tbat he ought to
have been sent lu prison, that Is not my
"And In return for the emotion, as
you call it, you come here to rob me," I
saitl, Bitting down.
"Hut i told you It was all n mistake.
Mow wus 1 to know you lived here?
Don't make the mistake of thinklii'
Jimmy Blakesly's a duffer. I'll just
put everytblng back ss I found 'em an'
say good night, au' we'll let it go at
that. What's the mutter, governor?
i'on're lookln' worried!"
You will think it a curious thing thut
I did, and I agree with you. Although
I hud caught Jimmy ml banded, tlie
idea of giving him over to the luw never
occurred to mo. I wus worried over
Um Nash case and felt like talking to
some one, so I invited the fellow to sit
down and told him ull about it. He
caught on lu great shape, and when I
hud given hint al) the points he said:
"Why, governor, tbe old man ought
to be In a crazy bouse. That mine
sharper has got him dead to rights.
No such case bb mine wns—no chance
to wurk in a poor old mother on a jury,
no tears ner emotion. You haven't one
chnnca in a hundred,"
"Not one iu a thousand."
"That is unless"—
"Unless what!" I asked.
"Dunno, but—hut if you'll excuse me,
governor, I think there's a little business wait In' for me down street. On
the square, I didn't know this was
your Joint. tS'long."*
Hi* took Ills departure by the door Instead of Hie (Ire escape, leaving niu
dazed and speechless. Next morning I
was an hour late nt tbe oflioe, and on
my desk I found n Inrge envelope
which had come by messenger, It con-
ti1' icd not only the copy of the agreement thut had been filched from Nash,
but bis promissory note for $50,000,
Tbo afternoon papers came out wiih
glaring headlines. Phllhriek's oflli'e
had been visited the night previous,
his safe broken open and valuable papers carried sway. Nash wus never
called upon to pay for his worthless
Stock, and 1 haw not seen Jimmy
Blakesly since that night. If he ever
comes around again, 1 must warn htm
that he Is clearly In Hue fur u scrape
where i'mo I inn will not save him.
