Working Bond.
(Special to The Daily Canadian.)
Greenwood, July 20.���The B. C. Copper Company has just secured a working bond on the Ixme Star and Washington group of claims In Central camp,
about two miles south of the international line. This property was in the
early days regarded as one of the most
promising iu the district, but owing to
the low price of copper and the difficulty of transportation, work was sus-
spanded in IBOh The more recent building of the Phoenix branch of the Great
Northern has brought the property within four miles of a railway. The mine
is fairly well SQUlppad with machinery,
and work will be resumed within a few
days. Henry Johnson, who Is a stockholder In the properly, aud who is also
interested In several claims In the district, and now iu charge of the I-lmma

Warns  Britain  Against Asking a  Preferential Tariff from Indian
London, July 20.���Introducing the

Morley sounded a warning note on ihe
necessity of excluding India from party
"The most engrossing of Great Britain's foreign relations," he declared,
"were the Asiatic, or those involving
Ihis country with China. Japan and
Russia, which was a great Asiatic as
Wall as European power. Any false step
In India would land Great Britain In a
OoniUSkm Infinitely more dire and disastrous than had the false step taken
in South Africa.
"India's case In the trade conlrover-
BJ can be put lu a nutshell." he declared. "Her prosperity and comfort,
the growth of her trade and commerce
and the solvency of India hang upon
her extKirts. The Cniti'd Kingdom

Students of Dakota School
of Mines in Nelson
Prof. Babccck Thinks Mining Conditions in Canada and States
Show Steady Growth*
Prof. E. J. Babcock. dean of the
school of mines of the State University
of North Dakota, arrived In the city
last night with nine Btudents. comprising u part of the class taking tbe summer session at the school. They spent
tne morning ut the Hall Mines smelter,
ami will leave via Spokane tomorrow
In conversation with a member of
the staff of The Daily Canadian, Prof.
Babcock described the school and Its
methods of work, ami incidentally the
camp now. and some of our boys will
stop there on the way east and probably remain for the rest of the summer.
"This is our first trip to the north
of the boundary line, as we could afford time only for a flying visit, and so
I thought we could learn most by visiting a smelter. I understand that the
Hall Mines smelter, from the diversified character of the ores received, is
about the best for our purpose.
"I find that they have Just Installed
a new plant for a new process. From
what I could see In a very hurried visit.
I should think that It will mean a great
improvement in results both to tbe
smeher company and to the mine owners.
' The most active mining field in the
United States at present Is the southwest, especially the state of New Mexico. Most of our graduates go there,
and have no difficulty In getting good
positions. The demand for practically
trained mining engineers is better than
ever, and, I believe, will grow greater.
II Is fast becoming recognized that
mining is not a matter of luck or of
common sense, but an Industry requiring a long and diligent scientific training. Its complexities cannot be mastered ln a day by even the brightest.
The finding of the location of an ore
body Is not mining. It is a very small
part of It. The problems of getting
the ore oul al least cost, and of saving
the greatest percentage of values at
least cost, are the big tasks for the
mining engineer.
"Your city ia beautiful. We were
all glad to see the lake after our railway journey. All I have seen so far of
British Columbia looks rich In timber
and In soil. Apart from the wealth of
the mines, It should be a rich country. '
Where the credit Ib given by impartial outsiders for the phenomenal growth of Canadian trade and Industry, may be seen from the followlug editorial of the Times, London, appearing in Its issue of July 2nd:
"Yesterday the great Dominion of Canada entered upon Its for'^th year of Its federate existence, amid
the uuivs-rsal rejoicings of a prosperous and confident nation. Never nave the auspices for Canada's future
heen fulrsr than they are today, never have the patriotic faith and cot.fldeut assurance of Sir John Macdonald
ansl his tollow-workera In the cause of Canadian unity found more trlum'phant vindication ln the fruits of their
great endeavor. The long, disheartening winter of neglect, which the Wonderful resources of that great empire
within an empire suffered for generations, while the better advertised territories of Its southern neighbor were
attracting all that was mobt enterprising In the population and capital of ..us country and of Europe, is at last
breaking up. Today Canada bids fair to Justify the proud boast of her sons that the twentieth century on the
American continent will belong to her, as the nineteenth has belonged to the United States. Our Ottawa cor-
respondenl dwells with patriotic satllfaotlon on the evergrowing influx of population Into the Canadian Northwest, uu 1 nIlux which has grown by 25 per cent, in the space of a single year. He tells us of the vast revenues reaped by the Canadian Pacitic railway, an undertaking which not so many years ago was derided, even by
Canadians, as unlikely ever to earn the cost of its own axle-grease, and which today is earning the sincerest
tribute, that of Imitation, from more than one great rival In the same Held. He tells us of the constant demand
for lubor In town and country���the surest sign of progress in every direction���of au outward and inward trade
expanding with marvellous rapidity. Already Canadians are declaring that it will not be a decade, perhaps not
even half a decade, before they will be growing enough surplus wheat to feed the whole population of the British Isles. The most striking feature of the present development Is undoubtedly the growth of tlie weBt. But,
owing to the fiscal system of Canada, to the national policy Introduced by Sir John Macdonald, and carried on
by Sir Wilfrid Laurler with a sound practical disregard for the earlier platform eloquence which earned him
Ihe medal of the Cobslen Club, that development Is shared by every province of the Dominion. With an
ever-growing market open to them, the older provinces are rapidly becoming the homes of great manufacturing Industries, slestined befoie long to rival the manufactures of,the United States and of the mother country.
We, too, owing to the preference extended to our trade by the Canadian tariff, are sharing in the development
of Canada. How much greater that share might lie may perhaps be brought home to our manufacturers and
merchants of the Associated Chambers of Commerce who are to be among us in the next few days.
"With that material expansion has grown an intenser feeling of patriotic pride and self-confidence.
There waB a time, not so very long ago, when many Canadians openly advocated annexation to the United
SlatoB, ansl when even those who were moat attached to the British (lag and to the Ideals of the British Empire, yet, In their heart of hearts, sometimes doubled whether it was possible to do more than defer annexation
for the lime of their own lives. Today, though American citizens In tens of thousands arc flocking into the
Northwest, the annexation of Oanada to the United States is, us Lord Grey frankly told an American audience at the Pilgrims' dinner In New York, as unthinkable as the annexation of the United States by Canada.
The sense of national patriotism In Canada was quickened hy the South African, war; the prosperity that has
followed since has served to intensify it. The full consciousness of what Mr. Borden rightly calls ' a true
nutional life' is rapidly displacing the old provincialism of the different colonies, and la having Its effect even
upon the provincial anil racial excluslveness of French Quebec. With that consciousness of national unity
has grown the consciousness ssl a yet wider unity, the unity of the British Empire. As citizen of a-great nation, the Canadian claims to rank on an equality with the citizens of the great republic on hla borders. As partner in a worlsl-wide empire���aspiring some day. perhaps, to become tlie predominant partner���he can claim an
even higher rank and tin ampler destiny. That double element in Canadian patriotism Ib reflected In the stirring wortls of the national song, .lie Maple Leaf Forever." whose author. Alexander Mulr, was carrieu to his
grave in Toronto on Saturday, followed by thousands of his mourning fellow-citizens,"

Their Fruit Left on Their
Wharves Today
Sudden Change of Policy by C.P.F.
Navigation Department Stops
All Shipments.
'Ine fruit men of the Nelson district
received a shock of a very disagreeable
nature this morning, when the steamer
Kuskanook passed their wharves without calling, even in response to signals.
Except an informal newspaper state*
ment, no notice was given to shippers,
or even to the Dominion Express Company. The postmasters at Pilot Bay
and Crawford Bay were not notified.
The Informal notice referred to gave
intimation that a change would be
made "after July 20th," but the change
waB made this morning.
The ranchers along the lake feel
greatly aggrieved over the treatment
accorded them by the railway company. Tbe produce left on their wharves
consisted mainly of raspberries and
other fruit of a perishable nature,
which was consigned, some of it to
points in East Kootenay, some ot It to
Winnipeg for purposes ot exhibition. It
had to be brought to the city and disposed of at considerable sacrifice.
The effect on Nelson's exhibits at
the fairs ot Manitoba cannot tail to be
a very unfortunate one. The shipping
agent of the Kootenay Fruit Growers'
Association has already been greatly
hampered in his arrangements tor forwarding fresh fruit, on which J. E. Annable and R. M. Palmer are relying respectively for the success of the Kootenay and provincial exhibits at Winnipeg.
The summary nature of the change
and the utter disregard for the interests of the public, or even of their
rights, is shown by the fact that many
have return tickets for various points,
still valid, to which the company's
steamer will not return mem. and
which they are told by officials to
reach the best way they can.
The mall service along the Arm and
the main lake is completely demoralized. No one, not even the keepers ot
postoffices, or the Nelson postmaster,
knows how or when mall may be forwarded to any point between Nelson
and Kootenay Landing, with the single
exception of Procter.
The position ln which the fruit growers are left by the action ot the company is a very serlou one. Had they been
given definite notice of a couple of
weeks, or had the change been delayed
for a fortnight until the season of perishable fruit is over, they might hare
been able to make other arrangements.
As It is, they will not be able, for this
season, to ship any fruit ln its best
condition. It must now be picked and
crated in time to catch the afternoon
steamer into Nelson, ln order that it
may be shipped out the following day,
It Is hard to Imagine any blow from
any quarter so damaging to the fruit
growing Industry, from which so much
Is hoped, as this hasty action of a hitherto friendly railway company.
Today the ranchers, many of whom
had to hring their fruit into the city ln
launches to save It from being a total
loss, are staggered by the blow, and
are absolutely In a quandary. It had
never occurred to any of them that officials of the company whose managers
have frequently expressed great Inter
est in the fruit industry, would, wantonly and almost without warning,
adopt u policy which completely cripples them. They still hopo that better
counsels may prevail when the company officials realize the full effect of
their acts.

more advanced stage ssf development
than they are. The steady application
ssf businesslike methods in mine management, together with the more re-
cenl Improvements that have been nnni.-
in the treatment of ores, all indicate a
prosperous future for Kootenay. This
will assure the growth of Ihe city of
Nelson, and there may be among the
younger members of the Twenty Thousand Club those who will live long
enough lo smile at tbe incredulity of
the pessimist who has bul a superficial
view of the posslblliUes of the surround
ing country as a vast natural storehouse of unsleveloped mineral wealth,
anil who will yet see this city reach the
population aimed at by the club.
The growing Importance of Nelson as
a centre of mining interests Is a proof
tbat Its selection as a site for a city
was neither fortuitous nor ill-advised.
Recent developments have demonstrated that Is almost the exact geographical
hub of the richest mineral territory iu
the Kootenuys, while its waterways
ami means of railway approach make
it the practical metropolis of the district.

in the Hunter v. mine ss tew miles bo-

tion of this claim, ft hus been known
for some lime lhat the ore in tin Hunter V. was being worked from a vein
some thirty feel iu Width, anil while it
bus always been understood thut Ihis
ore Is of low grade, ll was mined chiefly
for iis superior qualities as a lluxing
medium in 'lie local smelters. These
mixing qualiUes made li a paying proposition, even with the low mineral val-
ues. It has also beeu known, however,
thut tlie ore carried mssiv or b-ss free
Kllver, ansl it wuulsl appear that the
QUanUty ol this lutter has been gradually increasing, while we are unable
lo obluin InformaUon Irom tbe Issssees
of the iiuuisr v. as tss ihs- exacl nature
or extent of the new strike, we are otherwise credibly informed that it is ssl a
highly gratifying character, and that
i samples tested show thin the value
Rf die new lind can scarcely lie over-
estimated. The enormous quantities oi
ore that are easily accessible in this
mine, together with the fact thai in iis
location It lies just below olher clulnis
in which the same vein lias lieen discovered woulil seem to aSBUre the permanence of these mining operations,
But it is not alone m inese things
thai one may look Cor reasonable as
suranoe that under prudonl manage
ment the mining Industry is iss in- vsssi
ly developed in this s> etlon. There ure
other properties uniuml Ymir which
give evidence of mineral wealth, and
which ars- being examined by mining
experts, which could be only with a
view to exploitution.
We lire credibly informed lhat Mr. .1
Cronln, the veteran mining engineer ut
Ihe   Kootenays,   is   ussw   in   the     Yini;
country  examining  properties of  well-
known   local   investors,  and   while    it
would he folly to anticipate his report,
It is believed   by   thole  whs, claim to
know that there will yet be In the Ynilr
district some of lho lies, paying properties that are operated in this province.
Add  lo  these  observations the fact
that at Rosslund (lie shafts are again
being deepened  nnd  lower levels tunnelled, with every known imlica'lon of
richer values being uncovered, and we
have a prospect of a revival of widespread interest In the mining affairs of
this district.   For years the eyes of lho
world were upon us. and but for a va-
ilely of entirely   obvlable    causes the
mines of the Interior  would be ln a
The reports of Ihe speeches made as
Rossland by Mr. J. H. Hawthornthwaite
anil .Mr. .1. A. Macdonald, leader of the
opposition In the local house and of tbe
Liberal parly of Urnlsh Columbia, are
disappointing in the extreme, Mr.
Hawthornthwalte'a speeches were, or
course, characteristic, and need no tlls-
ciississti; hut we looked to the leader of
llle Liberal parly for some show of
wisdom anil statesmanlike ability In the
d!8GU88ion of political subjects. Instead.
we have Mr. Macdonald reiterating the
exploded fabrications of his party, and
stating for truth before a sympathetic
andlence things which, while ths-y may
slo well enough for cheup campaign oratory, are only additional evidence of
tlie hopelessness and helplessness of
the Liberal cause. Mr. Macdonald, if
he is correctly reported, accused this
government of giving away large tracts
'if land thai belonged lo ihe people,
while no one knows heller thun the author of the statement that ihese lamls
were granted to the C. & \V. by the
government of British Columbia as early as lsnti, ansl that the grams were
practically reaffirmed several times before tbe McBride administration came
into power. To repeat a falss- statement or to utter a truth In such a way
us lo mislead llle audience may be good
politics, but we doubt II, and we believe Ihe intelligent voter does the
But the most serious misstatement
made by Mr. .Macdonald, and one which
It Is difficult lo excuse, Is reported us
"He then referred to the Kaien Island
deal, and pointed oul that the governmenl bail not deal! wiih ihs- Qrand
Trunk Pacific as was claimed. Thnt
this wus so was proved beyond sines.
Hon by the fact that after ths> order-
ln-councll was passed, Bodwell ami An-
derson wenl to Montreal ami got an
agreemenl frssm tin- Grand Trunk Pa
sillc tss pay $-111,000."
Such a statement could be made only
by one who had for Ihe time forgotten
the facts, or by one who for partisan
purposes would not hesitate to pervert
the truth. The fact Ir that after the
order-in-councll was signed, Bodwell
and Anderson went to oiiowa, and the
ft T. IJ. utterly rerused to pay the |40,-
000 asked for, and Bodwell and Anderson have been compelled to admit thai,
under the terms of their agency for tbe

The telephone is now so much a part
of our daily life ami so necessary to
nmslsTii business transactions that the
public is apt to forget that it lias lis-en
in use less than three decades. Thirty
years ago when the telephone was Ural
pliics-sl on exhibition at the Centennial
Exposition at Philadelphia, tin- managers took so little Interesi in tin- Invention tlial they allotted it to un obscure
positissn. As a matter ssf fact, but for
ilie interest laks-u in it by Don Pedro,
ths- Emperor of Brazil, the telephone
mlghl not have attracted much popular
attention during the Centennial. Don
Pedro's interest in it made it one of the
features of the siiow. and the inventor,
Alexander Graham Bell, recited over It
1 lam left's BOllloquy, greatly to she Emperor's delight Electric llghl was at
that time a curiosity. Even in the
short space of thirty years science bas
made remarkable advances.
