KOOHNAT MINES
Review of Progress During lhe Week
RECORD OF EXPANSION
Developments in Surrounding Districts���Quotations of Stocks
on Local Mining Markets.
The general mining situation In
Kootenay and the neighboring provinces nnd states continues favorable,
with many Indications of extensive development nnd expansion in the near
future.
In the Boundary and ul Rosshmd additions to the list of shipping mines Increases from regular shippers; installation of new machinery, limiting uf
new companies and opening of new
mines nre reported almost daily.
In lhe Slocan there is-little. All
eyes are on the Rumbler-C.'ariboo,.No
report of the lead's being found in the
long tunnel has yet been made. However, experienced mining men have no
apprehensions, in a work of such
magnitude a few weeks' lime is a trifle.
Sheep Creek remains the field of
promise, nnd many parties of American capitalists are eagerly negotiating
for control of one or more of its rich
gold properties.
Near Nelson the l,n Plata has been
tbe mosl active during the week. Tbe
new concentrator has now been In operation successfully for a fortnight,
The mine has now a very bright outlook, with three years' supply of ore
In sight.
Miners are busy on tt'-rreek. where
there are many rich copper deposits
still undeveloped.
On tbe local market slocks huve
been fairly active and prices have remained very firm.
International Coal was again the
leuder, one firm of brokers alone having handled over 120,000 shares of this
security during the week. This does
nol appear strange when it is under
stood that this company have over
$400,000 Invested and are shipping
over 1,000 tons per clay. It would seem
thai these shares should be Bulling
around par instead of at one-half that
amount.
All of tho Coeur d'Aleue stocks have
been active, most of them having
shown a decided advance. Snowstorm
being the leader. It Is reported that a
Nelson firm has secured large contracts on this property, and the fact
that these improvements would be carried out has caused tho excitement in
the shares.
Among the "wireless" stocks the
American Deforest, preferred shares,
seems to be the leader.

WARNED   AGAINST  GAMBLERS.
White Star Line Discourages Games of
Chance on Ships,
New York, June 9.���A formal warning lo passengers to beware of professional gamblers on shipboard wus published in tlie official passenger list of
lhe White Star line steamer Majestic,
which arrived here today from Liverpool and Queenstown. The warning
rend as follows:
"The attention of the managers has
been cuiled to the fact that certain
persons, believed to be professional
gamblers, are in the habit of travelling to and fro In Atlantic steamships.
In bringing this Io the attention of
travellers, the managers, while not
wishing In the slightest degree to Interfere with the freedom of action of
the patrons of the White Star line, desire to Invite their assistance In discouraging games of chance, as being
likely to afford these Individuals special opportunities lor taking unfair advantage of others."
(From the Province.)
That Hon. Charles Fitipatrlck's ,
last political act before entering
on his new duties at chief Justice
of the supreme court of Canada
should have been the liberation, .
long before his term had been
served out, of one of the most debased criminals who ever came
before a Canadian tribunal, Indicates the different light In which
very serious matters are apt to
be regarded at various times by
the same m'-i. We are quite satisfied that f.,T. Justice Fttzpatrick,
who occupies the highest Judicial
position in the Dominion, .. asked
for hit opinion regarding the release of the felon, Desire Bro-
thier, would condemn at impossible of Justification the act of
Hon. Charles Fitzpatrlck, the minister of Justice. As a member of
the bench he would, we are convinced, had that criminal been arraigned before him, have regard- '
ed it as his duty -to society to
place it beyond the prisoner's
power to pursue any longer the
shocking life and occupation in
which he had been engaged. The
judge would have said that such
a danger to society must be rendered harmless by the strictest
1 confinement, and that it was the
duty of Canada, in which his offences had been committed, to see
that he should not be permitted
to go elsewhere until he had un- 1
dergone the punishment which
the law regarded as necessary to
purge him of his crimes.

LAND ANDLIBERTY
Agrarians Make a Firm
Stand
NO LIMIT TO DEBATE
Right  of   Free Speech   Prolongs
Session of Russian Douma
A Full Month.
St. Petersburg, June 9.���The demand
for opportunity to speak on the agrarian question In the lower bouse of
parliament is so oppressing that the
rule against the bouse sitting on Saturday has been abandoned, and the debate on this important subject will be
resumed today. Every member seems
to feel that he should make known tho
views of his constituents upon this issue. The leaders of the constitutional
democrats who realized the necessity
for action dare not propose to limit
the debate, as that would savor of restriction of the sacred right of free
speech.
A month has passed since parliament
met, and the agrarian question is not
yet consigned to committee, which
msut be done in order that the details
of the bill may be elaborated. The few
conservatives no longer attempt to cle
feud their views, and by tacit consent
tbe constitutional democrats, who feel
certain that their program will prevail,
are abandoning the Held to the radicals
and continue to urge the full nationalization of the land.
Mannikln, one of the peasant leaders, declared that the theory that tlie
peasants are conservative Is utterly
false. They were now as firmly convinced that the land belongs to them
as they were iu 1801, and that servitude should cease. They were utterly
incapable of grasping the idea of provincial property in land. He concluded:
"We were elected to give the people
land and liberty. We find it is necessary to expropriate private property
and confiscate the lands of crown and
church. The government must beware,
or Boon it will be too late, and the people will take what the government refuses to give."
Professor Maklm Kovalovsky, of Ta-
karkoff, and several members of the
lower house supplemented the action
of the house yesterday in accepting
the government's decision to insist on
a month's delay In the case of the
death penalty bill by addressing an
open letter to the emperor, applying
to him In the name of justice and humanity to suspend all executions until the question of the death penalty
is finally decided.
Guatemalan  Revolution.
Washington, June 9.���Secrecy no
longer surrounds the movements of
the cruiser Marblehead, which was
started north from Panama. The Marblehead had sailed for San Jose to
watch the movements of the American
steamer Empire, which Is reported to
have landed recruits from San Francisco and guns and ammunition for the
revolutionists. The Empire coaled at
QoeentO, Nicaragua, before sailing for
Sau Jose.
Before sailing for Sun Juan, according to despatches from Panama, there
was no attempt to conceal Ihe fact that
the steamer, whicn was flying the
Amerlcun flag, carried arms and ammunition. The vessel Is n tug 70 feet
in length, nnd her normal crew numbers 1:', men.

Buffalo, N. Y., June 9.���Tbe following is a summary of the more serious
property losses by yesterday's storm In
South Ontario:
The deaths number three at Niagara
Falls. The walls of the two main gables of the general hospital collapsed,
and tons of masonry crashed through
the three floors to the basement. Plate-
glass windows were blown in on the

EXAMINED Olf ENGINEER
Favorable Report on Charles Mac-
Kay's Enterprise���Will Sop-
ply Towns and Mines.
James Burwell, of Hermon & Bur-
well, Vancouver, hydraulic engineers,
Is In the city after a visit to East
Kootenay in the Interest of the SL
Mary's River Power Company, which
has been formed by Charles Mackay,
ot Nelson.
Mr. Harwell's detailed report on the
results of his examination will not be
available tor some time, but he has
intimated that It is favorable to the
prosecution of the scheme.
Tbe firm of Hermon & Burwell had
charge of the construction of the power plant at Lake Coqultlam for the B,
C. Electric Company, which was con*
structed at a cost of $1,500,000.
Mr. Mackay, seen yesterday and asked as to tbe company's plans and prospects, said that they hold a record for
25,000 inches of water In the St. Mary's river. They will develop sufficient
power lo light all the cilies and operate mines In the vicinity. Their markets will include the town of Kimber-
ley and Its neighboring mines, the city
ot Cranbrook, Fort Steele, Moyle and
all Its mines, including the St. Eugene.
Associated with Mr. Mackay in the
enterprise are Robert Campbell, James
A. McDonald and J. I). Kay, master
mechanic ot the St. Eugene mines, all
of Moyle; W. Hanwell, of Port Hammond, and Mrs. H. Ross and L. Shaw,
of Vancouver.
It may be, Mr. Mackay says, a fortnight before the examining engineer's
detailed report will be received. In
the meantime the organization of the
company will be perfected, and preparations will be made' for further proceedings.
The St. Mary's river is the only large
water course in that part of East Kootenay, and all hope of the development
of cheap power on a large scale depends upon the success of this enterprise, u success ot which Mr. Mackay
and his associates are already confident.

NORTH ATLANTIC  SCANDAL,
We have hitherto refrained from editorial commeni nn ilif North Atlantic
Trading Company Bcandals In order
that we might evade an) charge of
sensationalism or have anj Bhare In
the aggravation of such suspicions as
is so often characteristic of the Liberal
press. We have therefore read with
the greatesl interesl the comments of
the government and opposition papers
from the Atlantic to the Peaciflc, and
while al Oral we fi ared Lhal n mound
would he raised from the material of a
mole-hill, Lhere now seems to be ground
enough to ereel a mountain. So fai
as Lhe evidence of Mr. W. T, li. Pres
ton is concerned, we attach to it but
little Importance, whether it is in fa
vor ot the Ottawa government, ui
whether II is in attempted concealment of nefarious deeds, of whlcb it
luis been admitted thai they were cog
nlftant. .Mr. Preston is evidently shrewd
enough to look after himself lir last
and always, and ii he has concealed
anything because of a seeming loyaltj
to his chiefs, ii will i>.' conceded by
those who know him besi thai he bad
reasons sail fact6ry to himself for doing so. wiiai the countrj la nol disposed lo forgive Mr. Preston for is bis
brazen attempt lo dishi nor Lhe name
of Lord Stralhcona and to drag th�� fair
fame of thai honored nobleman into
his own pellucid i ontempt.
Jusl what has happened bi t wren
.Mr. Preston and Mr. Alfred Jury lhat
the latter should violate the compact
which was evidently once in existence
between them it is difficult to guess
That Mr. Jury travelled at third-class
rates and charged the government hy
which In- was employed���through Mr.
Preston, of course���first-class rare, he
admits himself, and gives as his excuse thai Mr. Preston did nol allow
him ,i sufficient!} large Bhare of the
proceeds of their united robbery, li is
evident, however, that Mr. Preston has
been "ai it again," even with his as
uoclates; and li Mr. Jury could be Induced i<; tell all, there mfgbl be Bill!
further revelations.
'The theft of letters from Lord
Btrathcona's office, ami other alleged
transactions which were sworn to with
such effrontery hy these parties, and
dented with equal emphasis by Lord
Stralhcona, may be passed over as being beneath comment. When agenU,
or ostensible agents, of the department
of Immigration find it necessary, or
even possible, to do Buch things in the
promotion ol their schemes, it is a serious reflection upon all who are responsible for the malfeasance, from
the prime minister down to the last
link in the chain.
We regretfully confess thai whal has
impressed us most with tbe unsavory-
ness of this entire sensation is the determined manner in which tbe names
of tbe promoters and interested parties
connecteii with tbe North Atlantic
Trading Company are withheld from
the public. Not that it would do lhe
people of  Canada   any   good   to know
Who   Ihey   are,   un*ess   it   would   he   to
afTord a clue to Mill mure sensational
discoveries.
\\V are the mure surprised to read
the confession ot tho premier of Canada, as contained In the statement
that ministers of the crown entered
into an arrangement and gave assurance to the promoters lhal their names
would not be disclosed. The offer of
the premier to submit the names confidentially to Hon. U L, Borden was
another evidence of the rapidly declining powers of Sir Wilfrid Laurler.
Why the Immigration department of
Canada should find it necessary to
malic secret arrangements, '.and hind
Itself to keep from the public the
names of those who were In any way
taking part in the sending of Immigrants to this country, seems on the
luce oi ii almost like a conspiracy, It
Is no wonder that, knowing, this, such
men as Jury and Preston should lake
advantage of their knowledge, and that
Ihey should threaten each other and
finally expo.se each other, to the dis
comfiture of both, tint it is a serious
reflection upon the administration in
power at Ottawa, and In saying this
we are not iu any way blooping in the
level of the carping critics whose one
place In life seems to be to abuse those
Who are in an opposite political school.
CANADA'S   PUBLIC  DEBT.
The News-Advertiser of Vancouver,
which for many years has maintained
a high standard nf political morality
In 11b editorial columns, and which can
rarely be accused of bitting below the
bell, or in any way taking advantage
ol a political opponent, has said some
very perttnenl things recently anenl
the disinlegratlon of the once solid masonry of Lhe government situation al
Ottawa. In a recent Issue tl had oct a
Bion to criticise Mr. Fielding's budgi I
speech, and it lakes .Mr. Kidding to
task in the mailer of the public debt,
and offers the following apt criticism:
"Mr. Fielding raised an Interesting
question when he stated in bis budget
speech that no one would expect a
country like Canada to do anything
else bul increase iis debt We do nol
dispute the fact that that view is a
very common one, ami thai Mr. Field
ing will have many persons who will
agree with him. Iliu a little consideration of the subject; a reference to
what has been done lu other countries
where the conditions were verj similar
to those that have prevailed in Canada, will fail to show thai the creation
Of a great public debt was ihe result
of lhe settlement ol their territories or
of their Indus rial and commercial development If Mr, Fielding had read
the history of the United Slates with
a view to glean information that Jie
could apply to the management of the
finances of tin1 Dominion, he would
have found thai the statesmen of the
republic did not Incur large national
obligations for the purpose nf settling
the country and bringing its vast areas
under cultivation. Until the lime of
tbe civil warj the republic had practically no national debt. Thai gigantic
snuggle was (he cause of an Immense
debt being idled up during the live
years of conflict. Hut no sooner was
the war ended ami peace restored than
tip' government's attention was turned
lo tbe reduction of the debt, and Ibis
was accomplished with a rapidity lhat
was ilie wonder of the world und the
envy of other nations still carrying ihe
scarcely diminished burden created by
ihe wars of a past generation. Yet ihe
period of thirty yeurs succeeding Ihe
civil wnr was lhe 'growing time' of tbe
l'n It ed Slates. Population was flowing in from almost every country In
Europe; the tide of settlement crossed
lhe Missouri river and spread over the
'(.rent American Desert,' as the vast
plains were then called, It surged
againal the Rocky mountains and established a line of settlement between
the Middle States and the hitherto Isolated communities In California and
Nevada. New slates and territories
were carved out of the great national
domain; hundreds of millions of dollars w. re expended from led* ral and
state resources In providing for the requirements of tin si- new < ommon-
wciiths lint th.' statesmen who then
directed the affairs of lhe republic did
not attempt to mortgage 'be future to
provide for present nee.Is. On the
contrary, while meeting all obligations
nut of current revenues, they made
rapid progress in reducing the obllga
tlons Incurred in 'be war for the pree-
ervatlon of the Union.
We I'lini; thai Mr. Fielding, while
Ignoring the example set hy other
countries, has forgotten the declarations of his party while in opposition.
whai does Sir Richard Cartwrlghl
think of Mr. Fielding's latest financial
dictum whi a le' remembers his own
t tatemi at lhal a government which
could mil administer ihe affairs of Canada for bss than JSG.OOO,  v as guilt)
of a crime against ihe people? Ami
now wo have a Liberal finance minister
wiili a revenue more than double thai
amomii. Insisting lhal II is also necessary io add to ihe permanent debl I 11
temporal    " mores!"
EDITORIAL COMMENT.
"Tin
Says the Vancouver World:
provincial press, Conservative as well
as opposition, at< unanimous in dc
mondlng an inquirj Into ihe Pendray
lots. Kaien island." etc. Certalnlj!
The World, perhaps unwillingly, pays
a very high double-barreled compliment
- one to the Conservative press, and
one i" the members of the government
at Victoria, if the Conservative press
had nol the fullest confidence In the
administration of Premier McBride et
al., it mighi have something to fear
from an Investigation; bul as ft is. it
heartily united with the clamorous opposition press in the determination to
probe matters to the bottom. When
the attitude of the conservative press
re the acts of the government at Victoria are contrasted with the attitude
ui the Liberal press toward affairs at
Ottawa, Il is almost a pity to call attention to the difference.
The thirty-sixth annual report of the
Royal Bank of Canada came to this
desk yesterday, and Is it most hand-
si me and ornamental volume. The
press work, cover and Illustrations are
all Works of art, while *the tabular
statements are in such form that they
can be easily understood even by those
who are not familiar with high finance.
A lis! of the officers of the; hank and
a detailed statement of the number of
shares held, with the names of the
holders, is given Evidently the Royal
bank is not afraid of publicity, nor In
dread id' an Investigation into its methods of doing business.

FOR TRINITY SUNDAY
BELIEF IN TRIUNE GOD BASED ON
DIVINITY  OF CHRIST.
Confirmation   and   Ordination   Services
to be Held in St, Saviour's���New
Pastor in  Methodist Church.
Tomorrow will be Trinity Sunday,
one of the chief festivals of ihe church,
celebrating the Trinity of the Codhead
by the descent of lhe Holy (Ihost,
which was commentoraled by the services of Pentecost or Whiisunday.
The doctrine of Trinity, or triune
nature of tho Deity, has probably
caused more heresies and divisions
than any other article In the creeds of
lhe church. About hall a century ago
it wns rejected by a large body, nnd
the result was the organization of the
I'nitarlan church, which has l,un\ nnd
still has, many eminent adherents. The
Inevitable consequence, frankly accepted by the Unitarians, was the denial
of the Divinity of Christ. Belief in
the Three Persons in One God is conceded even by those who do not hold it
to be a necessary corollary of belief in
the Divinity of the Messiah, who prayed to HI:. Father, and promised that
His ascension would be followed by
the coming of lhe Comforter.
Special services are announced for
tomorrow In St. S iviour's church.
where a class prepared by tbe rector
will receive from the lord bishop of
Kootenay lhe rite of confirmation, or
"luying on of hands," as it Is called In
the New Testament, and a missionary
student will be ordained to the (Macon-
ate.
Confirmation Is Ihe sequel and complement of baptism. On behalf of the
baptised Infant his sponsors make
promises ol renunciation and obedience;' at confirmation the youth, come
to years of discretion, renews the
promises in ids own person.
In the Methodist church the new
pastor, Uev, K. Newton Powell, will
deliver his first sermons in NelSOIL
