American   Navy   in   Magdalena   Bay  Today���Plana   for   Manoeuvres   and
Summer   cruises.
"Rata bay, Alaska, November nth lasl.
'-'   vessel   wus  blown   ashore  at   tin
Washington. March 13.���Today, if all
goes well, the fleet of American battleships under the command of Hear Admiral Evans will enter Magdalena Bay,
the last stopping piuce before the arrival at San Francisco. Magdalena Hay
is located on the Pacific coast of lower
California, towards the southern end
of the peninsula, and about 100 miles
north of tlie Tropic of Cancer. There
are no towns of any consequence In
the vicinity, but the buy itself is one
of the finest natural harliors on the
Pacific side of the American continent
and could easily provide safe shelter
for the largest of the world's fleets.
The place has long been coveted by
this government as a lucatlon for a
coaling station for the Pacific fleet of
the I'nited Slates navy.
. The arrival of Admiral Kvans' fleet
in Magdalena Hay means that Hie long
trip from Hampton Hoails Is virtually
ended. Of Ihe total of 14,000 miles
only about 1,000 miles remain to be
traversed between Magdalena Hay and
San Francisco, the final objective point.
Tlie trip from Callao, the last stopping
place, to Magdalena Hay is 3,101' nautical miles and forms the longest leg
of the entire journey. The fleet will
reach Magdalena Buy just three months
and two days out from Hampton
On reaching Magdalena Hay the fleet
will put iu about three weeks In target practice, a practice in which It Is
expected there will be great rivalry between tlie Atlantic and the Pacific
fleets , the latter having also been or-
deied to rendezvous at the bay. If
all goes well the fleet under command
of Hear Admiral Evans will reach Mag-
daleana with every ship ready to go on
the range ready to fire ln the target
practice. This will be a convincing
demonstration that after mote than 12,-
OiiO miles of cruising from the Atlantic
coast tlie fleet has arrived on the Pacific ln a high state ot efficiency. Heinle firing Is started, however. It will
bo   necessary   lo   lay   out    the   ranges,
which  win  require one or  two dayH.
Tlie target practice will be unusually
extensive. Including buttle practice
Willi a rough sea and record practice
in smooth wafer.
Plans for Hie run from Magdalena
Bay tn San Francism have been worked nut in connection with arrangements to receive Hie fleet in San Francisco, which arrangements have been
prepared tentatively by Secretary Met-
calf after several conferences with
Governor C.illeite nl' California.
After tin' target practice is completed at Magdalena Hay the combined
Meets will head northward and nn the
way will engage In many drills and
maneuvers. The practice will Include
a division into two fleets, each containing eight battleships, eight cruisers and n sninll torpedo flotilla, da-
strnyers. repair ships, supply ships,
etc. These will he pitted against each
other, and will work nut the oomplex
problem! Which have been devised by
the general board, as well as others
which may be suggested by the Hag officers of the fleet. Again, a division
will be tundo Into four fleets, each
headed by four battleships, nnd still
other problems will be solved, (ileal
benefit Is expected from the work on
lo elaborate a scale, it is a noteworthy
lea'tiro of Ihe programme that all this
will lie done Without resorting to a
navy yard, there being none In the vicinity, und any repairs which may he
necessary will have to he made by the
rep ilr ships that nccotnpnny the fleet
and In the machine shops on board
the  ships   themselves.
Board of Trade Defers
Important Work Done by Small Meet
ing���Secretary Ebbutt Resigns to
Avoid Uniair Advantage.
A comparatively small meeting ol
the board uf trade laBt night transacted
a large amount of Important business.
The most Important matter that came
up, however, a request to endorse a
petition lor a duty on lumber, was held
over for further consideration.
The meeting wus called at 8.30. Those
present were P. G. Ebbutt, J. M. Lay,
S. A. Kelly, 1. U. Nelson, H. G. Goodeve,
S. S. Fowler, H. E. DouglaB, A. W.
Dyer, J. L. Buchan, L. B. de Veber, W.
H. Junes, E. W.  WiddowBon.
Vice President S. S. Fowler presided.
The minutes of the last meeting were
read aud adopted.
G. P. Wells aud V. \V. Odium were
elected members of the board without
The secretary read the report of tho
meeting of the council of the board on
February 27th to consider enquiries as
to certain advertisements of Kootenay
fruit lands, a report of which meeting
was published in The Daily Canadian
at the time.
A letter from the Vancouver board
of trade enclosed a copy of a resolution sent to Sir Wilfrid Laurier and
the member for Burrard. The preamble
set forth the condition of the lumber
industry, alleging thai ruugh lumber la
being dumped on the Canadian market,
even In British Columbia, lhat railway
companies subsidized by the government out of public funds were getting
supplies from such sources, and that
the I iiit- il States imposes a duty on
Canadian rough lumber. The Vancouver board aBked for a duty of $2 per
thousand on rough lumber and 30 cents
per thousand on shingles, and asked
the  endorsement  of the  Nelson  hoard.
S. S. Fowler referred to the very
high, he thought the excessive, price
of lumber in Kootenay. He remarked
that If the Blue Bell mill were to bo
built again it would be cheaper to import material for a steel frame from
Pittsburg than to buy lumber. He conceded the increasing cost of production
of lumber, and that the lumbermen were
as much entitled to protection as those
engaged In any other industry, and as
the lumbermen nf Washington and
A motion by MessrB. Lay and Buchan
to lay the communication on the table
till   the next  meeting was carried.
1. G. Nelson moved that the resolu
Hon be reconsidered, citing the fact
that a similar petition had been endorsed two years ago and every argument
in Us favor then was still valid. The
motion was seconded by W. H. Jones
but  was  lost.
The publishers of the Commercial
Hand Hook of Cunada had inserted an
advertisement of Nelson without authority, and sulmiltled accounts. The ao-
cnunt wus filed.
An Inquiry as to an opening for a
private hospital was referred to the
secretary to answer.
It. A. Blbbet, of Otlawa. and F. J.
Hoot, of Hlnghamplon. N. Y., wrote
asking for Information with a view to
locating a plant tor the manufacture ol
wood turpentine and similar products.
The secretary had already replied at
length, and his reply wns approved.
Hun. W. Patersnn replied to the
board's inquiry us to duty on ore sackB.
The request for free transit could only
be granted by a change In the tariff.

MeBsrs. McDermld & YtWaitU called
attention to the fact th:.i rpeclal settlers' rates granted to Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta do n ��� aptij to
British Columbia. The secteta, y, how
ever, had learned that prospective settlers in British Columbia received even
lower rates hut only for two mouths
or the year. March and April. This
was confirmed by H. E. Douglas. The
letter was filed.
-C. D. Stewart, of Sackville. N. K.,
wrote asking for an opinion of the Robson fruit lands. The secretary had re
plied expressing a favorable opinion
and referring the writer to the government agent of the district.
Other minor communications had
been  answered  by the secretary.
The secretary finally read his own
resignation. He is about to enter the
real estate business and thought that
the board's correspondence, consisting
as It does largely of inquiries as to
land, should not in fairness to other
real estate men, be first bandied bv
There were many expressions of an-
preclatlon of Mr. Ebbutt's services and
regret at tble lose.
The resignation was laid on the table
for a month.
H. G. Goodeve, for the freight rates
committee, reported that he had received E. .K. Beenton's detailed report
but was awaiting the return of President Starkey, and the convenience of
S. 8. Taylor, K. C, the board's counsel.
J. M. Lay asked that the board endorse the Publicity Bureau's request to
the city council for financial support.
He stated that the Bureau would continue Its woik whether such support
were granted or not. The petition Is
being circulated throughout the city
and will be presented to the council.
A. W. Dyer moved that the petition
lie endorsed and signed on behalf ot
the board by the chairman and the
secretary. S. A. Kelly seconded the
motion. e
Mr. Lay remarked that only by
grant from the council could absentee
land owners be made to contribute,
and they were among the chief beneficiaries.
The motion was carried unanimously.
I. G. Nelson moved, seconded by H.
G. Goodeve, that the board strongly
recommend to the C. P. R. freight department authorities, the promotion of
R. W. Drew to the position of general
freight agen>. c,!  ;he district.
The chairman expressed entire sympathy with the object of the motion

At the suggestion of W. H. Jones the
motion was amended to be a request
simply that the office be tilled by the
appointment of a roan thoroughly conversant with the conditions of the district.
The motion as amended was adopted
and ordered to be telegraphed to Winnipeg.
The  board  then adjourned.

W. W. Beer's Opinion of Omuner-
ctal and Industrial Outlook After
Three Months in Toronto.
W. W. Beer has returned to Nelaon
after spending the winter in Eastern
Canada. He and Mrs. Beer left this
city in the middle of December, lira.
Beer has spent a part of the time visiting relations and friends in Sackville.
New Brunswick. Mr. Beer remained
most of the time ln Toronto where he
has extensive business interests, including tbe Eclipse Whitewear company.
As a result of bis sojourn in the capital of Ontario, and of his meetings and
conversations there and while travelling, with business men from all parts
of the Dominion, Mr. Beer la convinced
that the financial stringency haa done
little harm, and that the depression la
more apparent than real.    He said:
"The tightening of Canadian purse
strings may not have been necessary at
all, but it was dictated by common
prudence. I don't think we should
blame the banks. Their care and caution is tbe country's chief financial protection.
"Its result, of course, was a general
shaking ot confidence that caused a reduction of business activity. Aa retailers saw the supply of ready money
available decreasing they reduced their
orders, perhaps cancelled some already
placed. Wholesalers naturally followed
suit and reduced their orders, and the
manufacturers thought their only course
was to reduce their output.
"Now, as confidence cornea bach,
and the impression grows that everything is all right again, orders will be
increased, and manufacturers who reduced their working force will have to.
get new hands to catch up with the demand. I don't think there has been
over production or excessive Importing
in any line, and I doubt If there are
any large surplus stocks ln Canada of
staple commodities.
"In our own business we havent reduced at all, and we have had very
few orders cancelled. Up to the 1st of
March the volume of business for this
year was about 15 per cent, better than
for the sama> months last year.
"I was not down to the Maritime
Provinces but I met a good many men
from there. They are not complaining.
Many of the manufacturers have reduced their production and let their employees go, but there hss been no distress, and I believe they are now looking forward to another period of expansion."
Mr. Beer enquired about the progress
of affairs in Nelson and Kootenay gen
orally, and expressed the hope that the
renewal of the lead bounty would be
gi anted, mining activity stimulated and
the local smelter reopened.
During his trips Mr. Beer baa heard
a great deal of political comment, ta
reference to affairs of the Dominion
and of nearly every province. He
noted an increasing degree of Independence, and a general spread of
opinion against too long a tenure of
power by any party.
Mr. Beer expressed pleasure at being
home again to resume his ahare in the
work of advancing the Interests of
Costly Blase In Paris.

lin. premier and minister of agriculture
of Manitoba, stopped ln St. Louis yesterday on his way to Oklahoma and
Texas for an outing, after tbe closing

that "The prairie provinces of Manitoba, Alberta and Saskatchewan have
room tor twenty million Americans, aa
fast as they can Be conveyed there by
the railroads." He said: "These three
provinces ten years ago had fewer than
four hundred thousand people. They
have now passed the million mark."

The announcement in yesterday's Ottawa des; arches that the contract for
construction of the first hundred miles
of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway
eastward from Prince Rupert has been
let, will be we.come news to everyone
in British Columbia. A few weeks ago
it was announced authoritatively that
the Canadian Pacific Company had appropriated $',0U0,U00 for construction
work on Vancouver island daring
the present year. The Grand Trunk
Pacil.c contract is reported lo involve
an expenditure of $t,000,000,
The beginning of such work and on
such a scale means a grear deal to the
whole province. Of most importance
perhaps is Ita bearing on the labor sit-
uaUon. British Columbia probably contains a larger proportion than any other Canadian province of men for whose
labor the demand is irregular. The
closing down of sawmills and lumber
camps or a decline in the price of metals that stops mining operations, may
throw thousands suddenly out of employment. Agriculture and coal mining art- the chief permanent industries
of  tlie   piovlnce.
The work of building the British Columbia section of the northern transcontinental railway will Inevitably extend over several years. Tlie extension of railway facilities to the northern and western parts of Vancouver Island cannot all be accomplished ln one
year. Both promise a big demand for
labor for many  years.    It  will be  the
that the work would be continued by
some means with or without a grant
from the council, will be welcome news
lo the citizens generally and will facilitate tlie work of those who are now-
appealing for general support for the
bureau. And it should not hurt Ita
case  before   the   council.
If our contemporary had previously
published tlie Conservative members'
denial of the Globe charge���and of
oouroe its Btatemeni to that effect Is
accepted���it is virtually pleading guilty
to a greater offence than we bad charged, it reprlDtasl editorially tbe Globe's
lie.  knowing   It  to   be  a  He.
Lord Roeebery, easily the first figure
of British Liberalism, is now really a
Conservative in everything but name.
It will be si range if his course be not
followed by the great mass of the Liberals of the older school who can have
nothing in common with the present
triumphant radical wing.
Reiwrts from Toronto indicate that
Premier Whitney is likely to appeal for
a renewal of the coufiderice of the electorate during the coming summer.
There can be no doubt of the result.
Nowhere else In Canada has the difference between Conservative and Libera: administration been so clearly exemplified. The blessing of clean government after the long reign of corruption is thoroughly appreciated by the
people of Ontario. It is also significant that every independent paper in
Ontario Is now opposed to Laurier and
supporting   Whitney.

earnest hope of all who have the best
interests of the province at heart that
the demand will be met by white labor,
of races assimilable with the present
British Canadian population, men who
will become permanent and loyal citizens  of  a  British   province.
But the benefit that will be derived
from the promisel activity is not only
for the laborers that will be directly
employed. It must stimulate production in every department of industry.
The great advantage of construction
from the coast, for which the provincial
government steadily contended, it must
be confessed with little assistance
from the province's representatives at
Ottawa, is that supplies for those engaged in the work can be obtained
from the settled and producing pans
ot the province. It means the springing into existence of a new market for
all the products of British Columbia,
aud a market iu which the British Columbian has an overwhelming advantage over all ODStpetitors iu geographical   local iuu.
IndlrecU) the country must also derive immense advantage! from the Impetus that will be given to every in-
terpriae by the opening up of its hitherto almost onexplored northern territory. The attention of the world cannot fail to be attracted to this new
and farther west. So far British Columbia, like all the rest of Canada
west of the Great Lakes, has consisted, except lu Kootenay. of a line of
settlements loosely strung along a ciu-
gle railway. The second transcontinental road will completely change that
It is to the credit of all parties In

its unanimous approval was given to
the agreement which has made possible the beginning of this work at
the  present  time.

Saya  He Did  Lose the Money.
O. Nichols called at this office this
nn.riiine, and emphasized his original
statement that he had lost *8ut), and
wishes this paper to state that the
item which appeared a few days ago
to the effect that he had confessed that
he had  not lost such sum is incorrect.
Wireless   to   Prince   Rupert.
The Dominion government In response lo a numerously signed petition
has decided to establish a system of
telegraph communication between
Prime Itupert on tlie Mainland and the
Queen Charlotte Islands. It will also
build a telegraph or telephone line to
connect the islands of the group, and
will also install a system of gas buoys
at various points on the islands, Including Jedway, the new mining camp.
Thirty  Days for Vagrancy.
A man named Race was sentenced to
thirty days in the Provincial Jail on
the charge of vagrancy. This individual
arrived in Nelson from Rossland some
two weeks ago and Introduced himself
to a number of citizens, claiming to he
an ex-member of the Liverpool, Kng.,
police force. He accepted the hospitality of the best hotels and purchased
goods at various stores, claiming that
lie was an employee of the corporation.
Inquiries elicited the fact that Race
was  in jail in Rossland.
The  Freedman  Murder.
Chief of Police Langley, of Victoria,
is investigating the Freedman murder,
which took place at Victoria Tuesday
night. At first it was believed that the
murderer had not taken anything with
him, but Mrs. Freedman has since discovered that two nugget brooches and
a diamond crescent have disappeared.
About town the impression Is general
that the shooting was not, as alleged,
incident to an attempted burglary, but
the result of a gambler's feud, originating ln the Klondike. The police
have not as yet got to the foundation
of this theory.
Big   Rewards.
Prominent business men of Chinatown. Vancouver, are alarmed at what
is believed to have been an attempt on
the life of David Lew, the well known
interpreter, and rewards aggregating
nearly two thousand dollars have been
offered for the apprehension and conviction of the guilty parties. The Chinese Property Owners' Association has
offered $500, Lee Yuen & Co., $750.
while the Bo Wong Woy, or the Chinese Empire Reform Association of Canada, has offered $500, bringing the total amount to $1,750. There Is no clue
to the Identity of the guilty parties,
although every effort is being made to
bring  them to justice.
ent at Calgary being made general
freight agent at the same point, and
that his jurisdiction will be extended
to the eastwartl, taking portions of the
system over which Mr. Lantgan had
jurisdiction. In the event of the Calgary office being given Increased powers, It is luobable that Chief Clerk
Drew of the Nelson office may be appointed assistant general freight agent for the Kootena.vH under the Jurisdiction of Mr. B. W. Greer, general
freight agent at Vancouver.
Not  Yet  Decided.
A Winnipeg dispatch says It has not
yeth been determined who will succeed
Mr. Bowles at Nelson, but It is stated
that there is a possibility of Mr. John

A   Real   Star  Now.
MisH Daphne Pollard, the clever little
Miss who for several years was the
favorite of tht? Pollard Juvenile Opera
company, 1h now said to be making the
bit of her bright young life as the star
of tlie San Francisco Opera company,
which comes to the Spokane theatre
next Saturday. It Is hard to imagine
the little girl who was first seen ln
Nelson as Ihe diminutive star of the
Pollards, now appearing as the real star
of a large opera company and making
good, as she is said to have been doing
as the doll In "The Toymaker." Daphne's elder sister. Ivy, who was the
belle ln the "The Belle of New York,"
accompanied Daphne with the opera
company until recently when she surprised her younger siHters aud the
members of the company by marrying
a young millionaire of Salt Lake.
Gold   Dredging  on  the   Fraaer.
Gold dredging on an extensive scale
will be undertaken this summer by
four Boston capitalists who recently
acquired a concession of three and a
half miles on the Fraser river, near
Lillooet. It is proposed to install an
up-to-date dredge at a cost of between
$75,000 and $100,000. The owners have
formed a close corporation under the
title of Boston Premier Gold Mining
Company. Details of their plans have
been furnished by Percy Williams, M.
E., of Los Angeles, who reported favorably on the proposition a few
months ago. Mr. Williams is regarded as one of the highest authorities
on gold dredging in the west He has
had over eighteen years' experience in
California and other states, and his mechanical contrivances have overcome
many difficult rmrrrng proulems.

Real Estate  Man's Reply.
Provoker! by the expression of opinion of a merchant as to how the Publicity Bureau should be supported, a
member of a city real estate firm said
today: "I don't think that the answer
Is to the point. We ell have to subscribe for public enterprises and charities, real estate men as much as merchants. As a matter of fact we have
done practically all that has been done
to advertise the city and district. Every
real estate firm spends thousands of
dollars a year in advertising, and other
people benefit by It. We don't make a
cent on the tourist travel, and even
from  settlers  we get  only the price of

Nelson   Liberals'  Probleme.
The fires under the Liberal political
not in Nelspn are said to have been
ignited and^that shortly there will be
something doing in the camp. There
Is a persistent rumor that W. A. Galll
her, the sitting member, has expressed
a desire to abandon politics and settle
down to the less exciting life of a
practising barrister. He, It seems, feels
that Just now there is more money for
him In acting as attorney for a big corporation than ln making speeches
against Ihe Japanese. Should this prove
to be the case, it is understood that
there are two or three Liberals In Nelson who would bear up tinder the party
loss with Christian fortitude. One of
those Is F. J. Deane, the manager of
the Daily News. Mr. Deane has always
taken an active part In politics, and he
believes that he would be quite as
successful In the Federal arena as
Duncan Ross, which, after all. Is not
saying very much. But Mr. Deane
would not be acceptable to the rank mid
file of his party. While he may harbor
