The next most Important matter at
lasl night's meeting was the endorsa-
tlou of the British Columbia lumber-
uien'a request, through the Vancouver
board of trade, for pi-olectioti against
unfair American competition, by the
imposition of a duty of %'i per thousand
on rough lumber and UO cents per
thousund ou shingles.
The board met iu the court house
lust night al 8.30. Among those present
were F. A. Slaikey, in tile chair, f. U.

Buchanan, A. It. Docksteader and others.
The minutes of the last meeting were
read and adopted. The resolution of
the Vancouver board of trade advocating a duty on rough lumber, which
had been laid on the table at the last
meeting was then read again and taken
W. A. Anstle moved, seconded by 1.
G. Nelaon, that the resolution be endorsed, asking for a duty of $2 per
thousand on rough lumber and 30 cents
per thousand  on ahingles.
In the dlacuaalon that followed Mr.
Anstle said the antidumping clause as
applied to lumber, waa of very doubtful
value. He admitted the generally unsympathetic attitude of the Dominion
'government and the doubt as to the
duty  being granted.
J. M. Lay supported the resolution
on the ground that It was the only unprotected Induatry on the continent.
G. P. Wells declared that no one ln
British Columbia had made a dollar by
the manufacture of lumber.
I. G. Nelaon reminded the board that
a simitar resolution had been passed
unanimously   three  years  ago.
JanieB Johnstone remarked that the
present high prices of lumber were retarding even necessary building ln Nelson.
O. P. Wells showed (hat even by a
comparison of extremes, the possible
difference in the cost of lumber could
not affect the price of a building by
more than three per cent. Mr. Anstle
also  replied   to  similar objections.
Mr. AUBtle'a motion was then paased
without   opposition.

the publicity bureau as a department
of the board was carried unanimously.

Applications for the secretaryship
were then read, from E. K. Beeston and
A. W. Dyer. A. B. Docksteader made
a verbal conditional application, and
T.   Luckhurst  an   Informal   application.
T. G. Procter suggested that the
salary be fixed before the appointment

Morris the salary was fixed at 175, of
which |50 should be chargeable to the
publicity department and $25 from the
board's general treasury.
A. B. Docksteader withdrew his application and the board proceeded to

In ttie i��cue ol tne Manitoba Free
Press of Monday last, we find the following article, which we insert in ils
entirety, which seeks to justify thu
outra^eou.-j bi.l oi Aylesworth, legalizing the drawing of Lhe 'thin red line"
through   the   British   Columbia   voters'
,.st-- .
'In British Coiuuibia the system lias
hitherto been tu prepare voters' lints
only when they were needed lor lhe
piuvincial elections. Such lists, if not
Inure than a year old, became, under
tue Uouiimou law as it has hitherto
stood, the lists for Dominion elections;
If more tbau a year old, the Federal
authority made new lists, according to
the provincial system. This year the
.Mcbnde government, taking a leaf out
of the Roblin government's book, is
making new lists, in view of the Dominion elections; and presently we may
expect to hear from Premier McBride a
loud echo of -Mr. Robert Rogers' outbursts of righteous indignation that the
Dominion parliament should dare to legislate as it Judges best in regard to
Dominion   voters'   lists."
In the editorial columns of the same
issue, there are several columns devoted to a Justification of the said bill
to -Manitoba and its voters' lists. We
don't profess to write re the law and
practice in Manitoba, but we are familiar with these in this province. We
have before us the "Provincial Klec-
tions'   Act"   and   amendments   thereto,
and kjiow their provisions; and we
know that the above article from the
Free Press has been written hy one
who ls utterly ignorant of their provisions, and who is writing for those
who will not know that he is ignorant of such  provisions.
According to tbe provisions of the
British Columbia" Provincial Elections'
Act," and amendments thereto, the voters' lists in this province are revised twice every year. Up to the last
Monday in the months of March and
September, applications of those who
regard themselves entitled to be placed on tho list may be filed with the
registrar of voters in each riding. Tbey
are accordingly placed there. (See
sub-section C of section 10 of tbe Act J.
Then under the provisions of sub.-section D, every registrar of voters is
required to hold a court of revision
for lhe purpose of striking off the list
any name which may he improperly
there; and this court is held In the
presence of the objector, the person
Objected to, tin ir legal representatives,
and of any other persons who may desire to be present Also under the provisions of Section 2G of the said act,
an appeal lies from any decision of
a registrar of voters to the Judge of
the county court of the county ln which
any   riding lies.
Is not this as fair as it can well be
made? This occurs twice every year.
If the Manitoba Free Press cannot
make out a stronger case in regard to
the Manitoba voters' list than that
which it presents in regard to the B. C.
voters' list, its argument as to the need
of such a bill as that of Aylesworth is
weak  indeed.
The McBrlde government is this year
pursuing its usual course, that prescribed by the British Columbia "Provincial Elections Act." On the 30th day
of March, the time was up for adding
names to the list -if those who regarded themselves as entitled to be added
that is names in addition to those previously on.    On the  JMh day of April,
the time will be up for objecting to
any name which will appear. On the
first Monday In May, the registrars
will hold their courts of revision. These
dates are statutory. The appeals to
judges of the county courts will be
heard as the dales are arranged with
the  respective judges.
Tbe act Is not a very recent enactment, as it was passed in the session
nt 1003-04. No change of Importance
hus been made in it since its enactment��� no change at least 111 regard to
uny matter mentioned here. The Free
Press might, therefore, study the act
or not write about Its provisions. In
this case, however, it simply displays
its utter Ignorance of that concerning
which it writes. That however is nothing unusual in the columns of the Free
"Nil nisi bontim de mortuis" is a sentiment that does honor to human nature. It ls low to speak ill of the dead.
But to what extent can posthumous eulogy atone for utter neglect of the living? The local Liberal organ can find
no terms of adulation too exaggerated
to expiess its worshipful affection for
W. A. Galliher, M. P., now lhat he has
announced his retirement, it has been
remarked by scores in Nelson, Liberals
as well as Couseivatives, that this ls
tbe first occasion on which Mr. Galliher
has received any personal praise from
the party organ of his home city. Of
course the explanation is obvious. But
our contemporary should not overdo it.
If Mr. Galliher discovers that he is a
towering political genius his heart may
relent, and he may decide not to deprive his country of the service of such
splendid talent. And then what fond
aspirations would be killed?
Liberal organs are extolling the courage of Sir Wilfrid Laurier in permitting
an investigation of departments of the
public service. The fact that a sane
man can write in such a strain shows
the depths to which Canadian politics
have sunk. It is the inalienable right
of any representative of the people to
demand aud obtain an investigation on
the slightest suspicion of wrong doing.
Cannot the Liberal editors see that
when they describe Sir Wilfrid Laur-
ier'suctas courageous they not only forget the fundamental right of parliament but they admit tbat there was
every probability of crimes being exposed, and that Sir Wilfrid knew it.
If he believed that all was well ln the
departments, what was there courageous in iic-rmitting an investigation? Of
course he might have appointed men as
commissioners as corrupt as the ministers but surely not even a Liberal
organ means to offer such a plea publicly.

Hdllor Ually Canadian,
Hear  Sir: ���
My attention has been eimglit hy Unreport ln your paper of an Interview
wilh L, S. Ba\tOb, provlucial Conservative organizer, In the coui'He of which
he makes Special reference to the
party's present condition and future
prospects In the Dominion riding of
1 huve no quarrel with Mr. Union's
opinions. I wish only to supplement
them with special reference to that
part of the riding whoBe centre Is
Okanagan l.uudlng.
As your readers are aware thlB district has shown Its appreciation of Uie
splendid service rendered to the agricultural interest���and we believe this
lo lie the banner ranching district���
by a provincial Conservative government
by twice electing to the legislature
Messrs. Price Ellison and L. Shalford.
In her two representatives Okanagan
still lias unbounded confidence. I
tiling 1 can add that had Mr. Martin
llurrell been better known here, known
as he Is known to us now, before his
last campaign the result would have
been different. With any of these gentlemen ln the Held Okanagan's vote
would   be  nearly  unanimous.
Though we are off the main line of
travel we people of the Okanagan are
proud of our British Columbian and Canadian citizenship and take a keen interest in public affairs. Recent revelations
at Ottawa have convinced us that the
present administration or at least many
departments of it, are corrupt. But the
strongest evidence of corrupt purpose
we have seen is the introduction by-
Mr. Ayiesworth, minister of Justice, of
a bill amending the Election Act, one
of the most unfair pieces of legislation that British Columbia has ever
had to meet.
British Columbia has never received
fair treatment at the hands of the
Eastern provinces, very largely owing
to the lack of knowledge of the conditions existing in this province. This
liaa beeu clearly shown by the present administration iu their treatment
of the emigration question. Nor do I
think that the Laurler government huve
properly gauged the temper of the people of British Columbia who are peculiarly lovers of British fair play. British Columbia occupies a position in regard to its population that no other
province in the Dominion holds.. Owing to the great influx of new population   thut   it   is   receiving   each    year.

and owing to the large mining centres
which necessarily have a more or less
shifting population, to meet these difficulties the government wisely provides
for two revisions of the lists each year.
The court of revision is in the hands
of registrars who in a number of cases are Liberal. This court of revision is most open, the names of those
applying for registration are open to
the public lor inspection i'or weeks
before the court sits and affords every
possibility to check irregular registration. I have never heard a single complain in regard to the fairness of the
finding of any registrar in the province,
if the Aylesworth Bill becomes law it
will practically mean that half the
citizens of British Columbia, be they
Liberals, Conservatives or Socialists,
will be deprived ol the Franchise���a

A Chicago Scientist.
Chicago, April 10.���Dr. Andrew J.
Park of Chicago, a graduate of the university of Victoria college, Toronto,
Ont, and of Harvard university, believes he has discovered the true origin
of health and Intends to lay his discovery before the association for the
advancement of science ln London next
January. The old theory that heat Is
a mode of motion is declared to be fallacious by Dr. Park. Dr. Park says he
was intimately acquainted with Lord
Kelvin and that the latter some time
before his death said he believed Dr.
Park was working on the right theory.
He says that Professor Tyndall also
endorsed his theory of the origin of
heat on which he has been working for

Poor Company.
The Kamloops Sentinel of April 7 haa
the following concerning the "What
Women Will Do" company, which is
billed to appear at the Nelson opera
bouse on the evening of Tuesday, April
lu: "What Women Will Do' was the
title of a play presented at the K. M.
���Si A. A. hall last night by a small company of, with one or two exceptions, indifferent players to a fair sized audience."
Jubilee Singers
A very large audience was attracted
to the .Methodist church last night by
the concert of the Tennessee Jubilee
Singers, given under the auspices of
tlie choir for the benefit of tbe building
fund. The concert was of an excep-
lionally high character, of the very
finest class of negro melodies. The
audience was very appreciative applauding especially the singing of the
two quartettes, ladies' and gentlemen's.
Trail  Too  Busy.
It is stated on excellent authority
that the Trail smelter, ls unable to
handle ils ore supply at the rate at
which it Is now coming iu. The lead
bounty returns are delayed In consequence, being in some cases nearly
three months behind. If the supply of
ore keeps ou increasing additional
smelter facilities in Kootenay will be
required. It may be that the Hall
Mines smelter will have to be operated
again to take care of the excess, or, in
the event of the Sullivan shareholders
declining to operate the mine, the
Marysville smelter might be operated
for general custom as a lead smelter.

The king of Disc Talking Machines is
the  Columbia B. I. Graphophones.
For Fullness, richness and uielluwnes
of tone it has no equal.
There ls a reason for this. It Is because the hollow tout- arm through
which the sound passes is made of
aluminum, which does away entirety
with the metallic sound so often noticeable in other machines.

Fortunes  in  Oil.
The directorate board of the Canadian
Northwest Oil Company are all Victorians and men of integrity. They seem
to be acting in good faith and have Invested their own money in the proposition. They have, according to the customs officer at Macleod, the most complete plant ln Canada and drlllerB who
know their business, and as the location
lu most favorable all investors will receive a fair chance for their money. If
an oil company Is successful. It Ib a fast
money maker. In fact there are few, If
any, Investments that pay so well, and
In many cases the investment of a few
dollars ln oil stock has been returned
to the investor a hundred and even a
thousand fold.

The building began this morning on
the corner of Ward and Front streets
of a carpenter shop for McDonald and
Williams. In every part of the city
builders are busy with improvements
to residences, putting in stone foundations, running verandas, and making additions. The demand for good residence
property is keener than it has been before for many years. Frank Walsh has
bought the residence of Dr. R. J. Hawkey, Silica street, for $2,500. He is to
get possession on June <Jth. Already ho
has declined an offer of $2,700. Contractor John Burns stated the other day
that he was seriously considering the
advisability of building a number of cottages as an Investment. Everything
points to very considerable activity in
the building trade this spring and summer. Nelaon doesn't want a boom but
the demand for real estate and the substantial rise in values is very gratifying.
