Roosevelt Sends   Special    Message to
Washington, Dec. 17.���President
Roosevelt loday sent a special message lo congress in which ho said the
developments ol the pust year emphasize with increasing force the need ol
vigorous and immediate action to recast the public laud laws and adapi
Ihem to the aciual situation.
The lumber and stone act has dem
onslrated conclusively that its clleci
is to turn over ihL. public lumber lands
to great corporations. Il has done
enormous harm, it is no longer neeu-
ed and It shuuld be repealed, the
desert laud act results so frequently
In lraud and so Infrequently iu matting homes on the land that it. also, demands radical amendments. That provision which permits assignment before Ihe patent issues should be repealed and lhe entry man should be required to live not less than two years
at home on tbe land before Ihe patent
Issued, otherwise the desert land law
will continue to assist speculators and
other large holders to gain' control ot
the land. The commutation clauses 01
the bo un-si>-a,l act serve, 111 a majority
of cases, to defeat the purposes or the
homestead act itself, which Is to ta-
I'lliiaie settlement.
In the city the commutation clauses
wiil assist the honest settler und
doubtless in some cases it does.
He recommends that a bill be enacted which will provide for government
control of the public runges through
the department of agriculture, which
ulone Is equipped for thut work. Sucii
u bill should Insure to each locality
rules lor grazing specially advantageous to Its needs and should authorize
the collection of a reasonable grazing
tee. Above all, the rights ot lhe home
seeker should be absolutely guarded.
James  Tarry   Predicts   Rapid   Grovrtn
for Kootenay Valley.
James Tarry of Klverview, one ol
the advocates or a road and bridge lor
the ranchers iu the Kooteuay valley,
"If the same rate of growth continues���and it si-ems likely lo Increase-
there will he more people In this district In 10 years than there are now
In Victoria and Vancouver together.
"Ten yeurs ago there were three settlers between Nelson and Itobson;
now there nre 800; next year there win
be B00. The rate or growth east 01
Nelson, toward Procter, is probably
Just as rapid and Just as likely to continue."

Rake Off System Defeats
Lifesaving Schemes
Attended by Horde of Favored Contractors Who Supply Goods
WiiLcut Competition.
Otawa. Dec. 17.���In both chambers
or parliament attention has been calleu
to the terrible loss of life and tbe suffering Irom exposure caused by shipwrecks on the coast of Nova Scotia,
Prince Kdward Island, New Brunswick,
Hritish Columbia, and on the great
lakes. Some of these disasters, notably one on Vancouver Island, were
discussed last session, but others are
or recent occurrence. In many cases
lives that were lost could have been
saved If life-saving stations with proper equipment had existed near the
scene of the calamity. Two snip-
wrecked crews clung to their vessels
for many hours in plain sight ot tne
people on shore, who were in communication with outside places, so that
the newspapers In distant cities contained accounts ot the situation while
the men on the ship were vainly awaiting help. Had there been anywhere
ssn the neighboring coast some seen
equipment as might be expected those
lives could have been saved.
Tbe ministers wbo replied to the
statements In the senate and house 01
commons admitted the helplessness of
the marine department and thc want
of effective lite-saving organization,
but pleaded poverty and the great cost
of providing such maens ot rescue
along our extensive coasts. This idea
may be considered iu connection with
facts revealed last session. It is a
siartllng circumstance that while the
lire-saving service is of so little use,
aud while ministers make excuse that
they have no money to pay for a better outfit, thc lighthouse and coast service of Canada cost last year |2,0SSi,-
IHf, whereas ten years ago the outlay
was only JIOC.057. In 1902 the cost ot
this service had risen to $600,311. Tne
lollowlng Is its progress since:
11)02-03 ?   064,143
1003-04 1,275,010
1904-05 2,507,307
11105-06   2,688,484
This enormous increase should have
provided an immensely better life-saving service, and it would have dono
so had the money heen honestly expended. Hut it may be deliberately
staled that from one-quarter to one-
half of the whole vote ror this service
has been either thrown away or stolen.
Such a definite statement could not
have beeu made except on suspicion
previous to thu investigation by the
public acounts committee last session.
An astonishing condition of affairs was
Ihen revealed. It was found that the
department of murine wus attended by
a horde of favored contractors, who
sold supplies, without competition, at
prices allowing a rako-orr of 25 per
cent, to 200 per cent, nfter regular
proms were taken.
Though the facts are familiar to
many, a few itlust ral Ions may be given. Tho lighthouse doparlmont hau
occasion to buy cerlnln standard articles, lhe prices of which are known
to the trade generally, and musl have
been familiar to the officers of Ihe department regularly purchasing them.
hiBtt-ad of going to the regular trade,
or tho manufacturers for theBo engines,
pumps, tailors and olher machines, and
for ordinary hardware, the department
bought them from Mr. Merwln, an
American agent, clnlmlng to represent
the New York firm of Urooks A Co.
Merwln purchased tho goods from a
Montrenl dealer, Ihe latter passing the
order on to Canadian manufacturers,
who sent the goods direct to the department. Here are some of lhe prices
which the Canndlnn ngont paid to th��
Montrenl firm, and beside them the
prlccR which Iho government, paid to
Mr Merwln. the ncrent of llle New
York firm of F. T, nrookn & Co.:

This Is 11 sntnplo lot. Hut nt the
same time the government was buying
from Mr. Merwin and others suposed
to he representing tbe same group 01
contractors, goods to tbe cost of hundreds of thousands of dollars every
year. Most of these were articles
such as Isusiys, storeholders for gas,
signal cables, lighthouse lanterns anu
other apparatus tu which thc contractors claim a monopoly. Tho price paid
In some cases perhaps was two or three
times what it ought to be, and all the
excess does not ro to the manufacturer,
Knquiry has always brought out tne
explanation lhal tenders are not called for because Ihe favored contractors
are the only persons supplying the articles required.
Identical  Lead Proved on  Bay,  Mavis
and Tip Top.
(Special to The Daily Canadian.)
Greenwood, B. C, Dec. 17.���Following close upon the recent strike on the
Mavis comes oue on thc next claim
south, the Tip 'fop. Without doubt the
Day. Mavis and Tip Top lead are the
same, only the lead seems to have
grown larger going south. On Friday
last the bondholders ot the Tip Top,

a foot and a half wide, at the bottom
ut an old shart 45 feet deep. The walls
are smooth and straight and the ore
ls literally shot with free gold.
The recent strikes on the Mavis ano
the Tip Top would creaae an excitement anywhere else on earth than the
Itouudary. But being so close to important mining centres and so easily
reached, there is no hardship entailed
in getting here.
A good, all-year-round climate, excellent water and loas or timber uo
not appear to be favorable to mining
But he progress without a boom ls
steady and satisfactory, and although
overlooked at present by the big operators, Greenwood's day will come.

ranchers for a through service to KoB-

"Besides giving some ground, perhaps, for a further claim to railway

Giand   Forks  Asks   Repeal  of  Provincial Statute.
(Special to The Daily Canadian.)
Grand Koiks, Dec. 17,���The Grana
forks Twenty Thousand club has taken up the matter of the residence 01
Mr. Justice Clement, the newly-appointed judge to the supreme court bench.
11 C. Hanninglon, president of the
club, wbo is also a barrister, is reported to have said that the provincial gov-
ernment had uo Jurisdiction in the matter and in any case when a Judge was
appointed without any .conditions as to
his residence there would be nothing
to compel htm to live at any one poim
in prelerence to another. It waB, however, admitted that as the provincial
statutes now read an excuse was given
to the city of Nelson to appeal to ot.
lawa, and in consequence of this fact
the Twenty Thousand club has passed
a resolution os follows: "That the provincial government be asked to repeal
the statute ln question and that a copy
of this resolution be sent to the attor
ney general."
Grand Forks will shortly have an
agricultural Boclety here, the movement receiving the support of everyone, the farmers being enthusiastic
over it The movement is being
brought about through the Twenty
thousand club.
British  Columbia  Smelters  Unable te
Handle Product of Local Mines-
May Ship Abroad.
The question ot the disposition 01
products, both of ore and concentrates,
is becoming a serious one for Kootenay mine managers.
Whatever may be the cause, accumulation of ore during the coal fam
ine, insufficient capacity to handle an
that is offered, or some other reason
not given to the public, smelter managers display a marked reluctance to
accept shipments at present.
As the managers of the mines generally depend upon the returns trom
shipments to meet running expenses,
and as their facilities for storing ore
are limited, continued inability to fine
a market will in most cases force a
cessation  of production.
Two well-known mine managers 01
properties not far from Nelson are now
in the city seeking a solution of the
problem. They are already negotiating for the shipment of ore and concentrates to American smelters, as an
alternative ln case the local smelters
are unable, for an indefinite period,
to accept their product
Both would greatly prefer to patronize the home smelters, hut they have,
ft seems to them, no alternative at
present between snipping abroad and
closing down mines and mills.

Mr. {Garthwaite has come directly
from the neighborhood of Victoria
Falls, on the Zambesi river, and spoke
euthusiastically yesterday of the project of harnessing the falls for power.
He said:
"The Victoria Falls are the largest
in the world, and when the work ot
utilizing them for electric power ls
completed 1 am confident that it wui
revolutionize the diamond industry ln
South Africa. I mean by this that the
transmission of power from the tana
to the mines will reduce the actual
working cost about 40 per cent. Tne
great horde ot coolies now at work
can ln a great measure be dispensed
with and the high power steam engines
used, running the ore crashers, will he
supplanted by dynamos which will he
run by powef transmitted from the

"The power will be used also In the
working of the gold mlnea at Witwa-

Mr. Garthwaite said that South Africa has picked up considerably since
the war. "It Is a great country," he
Bald,) "but It is harassed by the British
government much in the way this country was 120 years ago, and there is
great danger of similar results."
Hr. Garthwaite said the reports heralding the cotton ot Rhodesia as a rival
to American cotton were absurd. The
African cotton, he said, was exceedingly coarse and could not at any time
be compared with the cotton of the
United States.
Simiikameen Solid.
The Star announces Smith Curtis aa
the choice of the Liberals of thla riding to contest It against Mr. Shatford.
Mr. Curtis' friends maintain, however,
that he will not accept, and they base
their opinion on the knowledge that
Mr. Curtis has no-more storoacli for a
good licking than any one else. If this
be so, he will find the Simiikameen, at
the present time, an excellent place to
keep his nose out of, for If be cornea
out he can count on as Bound a trouncing as he could very well run up
against anywhere in this hilly country.

who command untold capital, like tlie
Uuggenhelms, do not easily experience

Tlh> Telegram has made an uulor-
tunate comparison. Hritish Columbia s
stains as a mineral field is more firmly
established today Ihan any part ot
Canada. The immense Investments
that are being made and the resultant
developments, almost always with
I'tolliable results, have been such as
to promise and assure for this province
the iead against all competitors in tne
matter of mineral deposits. It is true
that not as much clamor is now being
made by us as by Cobalt and Niplselng,
but that Is well. We do not want again
to experience a mining stock boom in
Hritish Columbia. Such affairs are always a curse to everyone except the
promoters, and perhaps even to them.
Cobalt is having lis fling, but until it
can show the long stretch of smelters,
refineries, mines, tunnels���proved to
long distances���which are now common In this province. It is too early to
institute comparisons. Twenty years
liom now Cobalt may be forgotten, but
in that time British Columbia will bo
a province honeycombed with wealtn
producing mines and glory holes only
now in the early stages of development.
And all this as much because of the
excellence of our laws and their capable and fair administration as because of nature's treasures.

Tin- mining laws of Hritish Columbia are the pride of Uie province and
the envy of othur provinces less favored in the statutory regulations under which iheir mineral Industries are
���tarried on. It Is reported that the
United States In seeking a model for
the enactment of mining regulations
to apply to the Philippine Islands,
chose the British Columbia laws as a
basis ami that the fundamental features of our own laws have their counterpart In the laws of the Philippines.
This in Itself wonlil be B high complement, but the smooth working and absence of litigation In the matin bl
titles and claims in British Columbia
Ik sufficient to plnee the laws almost
beyond criticism. Recently thfl Toronto Telegram has been making some
Interesting comparisons between the
mining lawsol Ontario and those dj wis
province, and these comparisons lead
oii'j to wonder why, with such an excellent code us a model the laws oi the
eastern province of the Dominion are
not revised and amended so ua to lid
them of the objections which are all
too apparent.   The Telegram Bays:
"l.i British Columbia the miner settles the title to a claim when he drives
his stakes, ln Ontario the lawyers settle a title to a claim when (bey get
tlie patent out of the government ai
the Queen s Park* and even the patent
is not always final.
"In British Columbia lln.* miner applies for iiis certificate of Improve
ment or his crown grant. His application Is advertised. If objection is
raised the courts at once determine
the validity of every assault upon the
claim-holder'*, title, In Ontario the
title to k mining claim Is a question
of fact and policy to be determined by
thr .government    in Brltlah Columbia
the title to a mining claim is a question of fact nml law to he determined
by the courts.
"Hritish Columbia has a mining law
made by miners for prospectors, Ontario has a mining law mado by farmers for lawyers. The British Columbia
Inw produces satisfaction. The Ontario
law produces litipation."
The Telegram, however, waxes facetious when it remarks that 'If it only
had the minerals to match, the Pacific
province would soon become the Cobalt of the West." This is what may
lie called taking a fling. To compare
the mineral wealth that is known to
exist in Itritish Columbia with the uncertain propositions tn Cobalt 1s to
deal this province a very left-handed
compliment without lu any way adding
to the fame or claim of Cobalt. Cobalt
is experiencing that curious and phenomenal boom which is always some
time In the history of every new find.
bul at this early day the laudation oi
Cobalt as a mineral field richer than
British Columbia is, to say ihe leasi,
a Facetious undertaking, While there
may be no doubt of tho prospective development of Cobalt, and we hope no
doubt as to Its ultimate claim to a
place among the category of wealthy
mineral districts, it is too young yet
in SBSerl whir*so much gravity its su-
perlorlty lo any other portion of the
Dominion. Many experienced miners
from itritish Columbia have visited
Cobalt, men with a practical knowledge both as prospectors and working
miners, led by the lure that always
appeals to these men, for whom rugged
nature and bidden wealth have an Irresistible Charm. It is significant,
however, that most of these have relurned and that their verdict Is In favor of this province and against Cobalt. Thai the mining laws of whicli
the Telegram complains are to some
extent responsible for their return cannot be denied, but it is not only In respect of them that these practical men
have returned. They declare Cobalt to
lie wealthy in spots, and until thut district is as faithfully proved aa have
been some of the pay streak districts
of Hritish Columbia, It Is too early for
the Telegram to suppose that this
province is Inferior in mineral wealth
to Cobalt.
The withdrawal of the Guggenhelma
from Cobalt, whatever may have been
their reason for doing so, is significant
organs that they possess no ^uch capabilities, and therefore they persist
in hugging the mummified corpses oi
attempted   political  scandals.
What is true of Kaien island is
equally true, though in B different
sense, of Kiiamuat. We pointed out
that the I-itamaat affair is no affair
of this government. The Midway &
Vernon affair was as straight a deal
as any government ever bandied, anu
had it been handled differently the
same igivgiously yellow opposition
organs would immediately attack the
government from the rear. Nothing In
the history of party politics appears
quite so helpless tmd humiliating as
the position in which the provincial
opposition finds Itself, uud we are sadly mistaken If the public Is as blind
lo this condition as the organs would
try to make themselves believe, llie
case is ably put by the Qrand Forks
Uasette, which says:
"It is significant ol the weakness
ol their position that the chief Liberal
papers of the province have io rely on
the slinging of such terms as band ol
adventurers,' "robbers of the people's
heritage,' und so on, as their principal
weapons in fighting the present government. What they fail to realize is
that people generally are getting pretty sick of these juvenile tactics.
"The government will not suffer in
the least by such mel hods, and the
full evidence of tEe Kaien island bust-
n< ss can be read by any one wno
wishes to do so. But the perpetual
harping on these threadbare themes
reminds us of liosen BlgelOW's definition of the politician's speech: 'Bud-
jict stalled; expended: delayted; extended. Pump lively. Subject staitid
agin to avide mistaiks. Olnnlfl remarks; conilnood; kerrled on: pushed
il furder, kin' o' gin back to where he

Tries to avide it. Misstates It. rant
conjectur' no other plawsahle way o
Btaoylng on to it. Tries pump. No fix
Fin'lly concioods to conclood.'"
The local grit organ is unable to
distinguish between dead issues and
matters that may reasonably fall within the Sphere of interesting debate, lt
admits that If exploded fables are to
be no longer the subject of discussion
and criticism there is no longer anything to cull in question respecting tlie
administration of the present government, which is what Thu Canadian has
all along maintained. It repeats that
upon the Kaien island sales, the Kiia-
maat pre-emptions, the Midway & Vernon railway bonus, the Pendray leases
and lhe Hurnaby smalt holdings legislation the government Is still on trial.
We have called all of these dead issues
for the reason that each of them hus
been passed upon by the legislative
assembly and the course of the government has been approved. With respect
to the Kaien island sale, two paragraphs of the report of the select committee of the house may be of interest
to our readers as they completely preclude the repetition of such charges as
the local organ fondly attempts to galvanize into new life.
Clause 19 of the report of the select
committee reads as follows:
"Your committee finds that the sale
of the lands in question by the government io the railway company, upon
the terms and conditions Imposed, was
a deal pre-eminently ao the public advantage, aud hold the opinion that the
extraordinary reservations contained
in lhe crown giants set forth in paragraph 17 hereof will inure to the lasting benefit of the province."
Clause 22 reads as follows:
"Your committee find that no member or official of the government received any direct or indirect reward
or emolument in connection with any
of the matters Inquired Into, or any
direct or indirect promise of the same
in future, and lhat thp members oi
the government wero actuated solely
by a desire to secure to the province
every advantage obtainable under The
The other olauses of the report nre
equally Interesting and equally vindicative of the action of the government, but these iwo embrace lln1 whole
matter upon which the opposition Is
still endeavoring to fasten reproaclr
upon the administration. In othe.*
words, the finding of a select commit
tee in which leading members of tn
opposition played the part of inquisitors, huving completely exonerated
the government, we can see no reason
why the opposition should not accept
the finding, as is the custom in parliamentary nnd political procedure. We
grant readily thut If tho findings of the
select committee had been against the
government the opposition would be entitled to keep alive these issues till tt
succeeded in driving the government
irom power, hut all canons of political
decency require tirat such matters be
now closed. And if the opposition
were possessed of uny power of initiation, if it could devise new issues upon which to appeal to the people theso
matters would he relegated to oblivion.

The b-iSy Canadian
Finance Minister    Explains    Terme ot
Contact   With   Salvation   Army.
re Assisted Immigration.
Some curiosity has been expressea
b. Hit- genera] public in regard to me
exact terms or Ihe agreement entered
into bi'lween Ih-. provincial govern-
mini iin.i thc Salvation Army for the
direellon of Immigration toward ism
tab Columbia, and -some members <>i
tbe Vietoria board of trade have wait-
<-d on Hon, it. (i. Tallow, urging expedition in carrying oul tbe arrangement
While ibe minister did not cure to
divulge the exact terms <��r the contract entered Into wllh the Salvatinn
Army he was not averse lo dlSCUSSftlg
ihe proposed granting uf 185.000 to aid
(be former organization in bringing
settlers to British Columbia.
'i'he matter, be said, hud been con*
aide red during the conference held between Commissioner Coombs ami members of the cabinet. There wus no
doubt that Jt would be a measure in
lhe Interests of the West and ono
which would assist in the execution ot
any plans the Salvation Army might
have in View in regard to the encouragement of Immigration to this province. Hut, he contended, the money
wasn't needed yet. ii was not Intended that it should be used in bringing
lhe men lo the country. Tbe Army
wasn't looking lor ubsulute paupers.
The expected tlle settlors selected to
pay at leas! u portion of their transportation und other expenses. All tbey
did was to extend necessary assistance and to direct their proteges as
to the best districts in which to matte
their future homes. Therefore, the
-li^UDi) wouldn't be needed immediately. The use it was proposed to pui
lhat sum lo waa entirely different to
lhat which, apparently, the Victoria
board of trade members bad in mind,
if BUCh an appropriation were made
the Salvation Army proposed disbursing it in the payment of transportation,
etc., or the families of those settlers
who, having left the old country upon
the recommendation and through the
co-operation or the Salvation Army, are
Satisfied with the change aud wish
their immediate relatives to join Ihem.
These  people, as a rub*, hadn't  sum-
cient funds on hand, alter a lew
months had convinced them that they
bad been cast amid agreeable sur-
roundings and were lu a situation with
belter possibilities than formerly, to
bring their wives and families to Join
them. It was when lhat stage had been
reached that the Army wished the gov-
1'inmijnt sup propria tion of |H6,0*Uu so
that it might lie possible to again aid
ihem financially.
It was further pointed out by Hon.
Mr, Tatlow lhat any raonry which
might be appropriated in the way outlined would only be banded the Army
as a loan. The latter, he understood,
lent it to lhe settlers for the purpose
mentioned only on condition lhat it Ik*
paid back in installments. As It was
relurned it was re-Invested for tbe BS*
slstance of Others. Thus the fund was
kept in continual circulation, and
through it, new jH-oplo were constant
ly doming into the country. Thai was
the way fhe Army worked, and there
was no doubt that the system was an
admirable one. It was particularly
beneficial to a country such as the
western portions of Canada, Upon tbe
prairies it had been placed in operation with very gratifying results,
Whether the same would be done in
Brutish Columbia he couldn't say.
That was a question which had to b?
