Aggressive   Development  to   Begin  on
Volcanic Mountain.
Grand Forks, Sept. 19.���A persistent
rumor has been current here lately
that the Volcanic group of claims on
Volcanic mountain would very shortly
become the property of a strong company, who would start an aggressive
form of development this fall. In an
Interview last evening with your cor
respondent on this subject, R. A
Brown, the original owner, said::
"While nothing definite bas yet been
arranged regarding the matter there
is a strong likelihood that Volcanic
mountain will be working thiB winter
and that at least $20,000 will be ex
pended on this group in development
work before next spring. Where the
track of the Kettle Valley Line rail
way runs It is only about 500 yards
from the immense ore bodies ot the
Vulcanic property. At this point the
ore can literally be quarried out and
loaded on the cars al a trifling expense."
At a meting of the Grand Forks Athletic association held here a couple ot
evenings ago the matter of building a
covered skating rink wae discussed. It
was proposed to build a rink from 150
to 200 feet ln length by about 75 feet
wide. The location will likely be on
Spokane avenue, in the center of the
city. It is expected that work on this
.new rink will he stsrted early in October. Provision will also he made
for a curling rink under the same roof.
At this same- meeting the association
also decided to give a ball on the evening of Thanksgiving day.
Arthur Langford, an old English
prospector, hns just returned from
Franklin camp. He Bays that the big
zinc property known as the Spelter
King la provlug to be a veritable quar

assays from 15 to 45 per cent in zinc,
besides carrying paying quantities In
gold nnil silver.

Washington, Sept. 19.���The Isthmian
Canal commission will tomorrow open
bids to furnish Chinese labor tor the
construction of the Panama canal. The
basis for bidding is for 2500 coolies.
If the experiment of Chinese labor
proves successful many thousands ot
coolies will be contracted for. With a
recollection of the troubles that have
arisen in South Africa, Australia and
elsewhere for the employment of Chinese coolies, this government ls taking
every precaution to safeguard the
selection of the coolies and to Insure
their proper treatment while working-
on the Isthmus.
Laborers are desired for the Southern provinces of China and such per
sons only will be accepted as have
been accustomed to the climatic and
physical conditions as nearly similar
as may be experienced on the Isthmus
of Panama. No laborer will be accepted who has been brought from any
part of the Hawaiian islands. The
laborers must be between twenty-one
and forty-two years old and in good
physical condition, accustomed to digging and earthwork. Foremen, to the
number of not less than one to each
one hundred men, one physician to
each 250 laborers and an interpreter
to each 500 laborers, together with the
necessary number ot cooks and barbers shall be furnished by the contractor. He shall also agree that
neither slavery nor Involuntary servitude shall be permitted with respect
to any ot the laborers and that they
shall at all times receive just and
humane treatment.
The Chinese laborers will be required to work ten hours each day.
Overtime will be paid In excess of ten
hours and for ail the work upon Sundays or holidays at the rate of time
and a half. Laborers coming under
this contract will be provided free of
charge with lodgings, fuel for cooking,
burial grounds, necessary surgical and
medical treatment. No wages will be
nald to any laborer, however, during
illness or absence from work. Families and children will he allowed to
accomnany tbe laborers In the proportion of 15 per cent of the total number
of Chinese employed at any time.

Prince Albert, Sask.. Sept. 19.���Many
and varied are the resources of the
great north land ot Saskatchewan, as
seen by Mr. Alex McBeth of Colllston,
who has Just arrived home from a
long trip through It Mr. McBeth waa
through the northwest portion of the
province and left Prince Albert on
June 26 to count heads ln that section. From Edmonton he took stage
to Athabasca Landing, where he hired
a canoe and two men to take him to
Lake Athabasca. They ran all the
rapids on the river and eaw lots ot
game. Moose and bear are plentiful
and geese and wabten were just coming. So plentiful are geese the hunter neglects duck tor them and bags
of 160 to 200 birds a day are common.
From Fort Chipewyan the party
went across the lake to Fond du Lac
and were nearly swamped by a high
wind while returning The Mission
tug was taken by Mr. McBeth up the
river to Fort McMurray. To get the
steamer back to the Landing he had
to take a three-day walk across a portage, which Is estimated variously at
from 60 to 90 miles. For 100 milea of5'
so the Athabasca runs through asphalt There are actual mountains all
the way from Graud Rapids. 163 mile*
below the landing to Fort. Mackay. 33
miles below Fort McMurray, and there
Is a strong odor of the pitch, and in
places black rivulets of it can be seen
creeping down thc mountain sides.
There are Indications of petroleum
14 milea below Fort McMurray, and
boring ls going on. At Fort Mackay
there nre coal deposits which are being ntlliJied loeillv. Mr. McBeth mw
the gas well nt Pelican Ranlds. which
has heen hurnlne for eight years. The
noise of It can he heard half a mile
away. Through an 8 Inch nine the gaa
shoots un In a flame of 15 and 20 feet
and water comns boiling uo with It.
There Is n Ras amine below Grand
Bniilds where a kettle can he boil'd
s>aslly and Mr. McBeth found Bevei-al
other Indications of gas. At Salt

Is beln- mined and sold for 10 cents

The proposed readjustment or tariff
regulations and customs duties is not
unlikely to be the most serious problem the Laurier administration has
had to face since it came into power
in 1896. fVcceedtng to power ai the
turn of that tide lit the affairs of the
Dominion, which being taken at the
flood, has led to fortune, for so many
of the Canadian people, the Laurler
government has had little to do but
spend the peoples' money antl watch
Canada grow. The National Policy,
inaugurated by Sir John A. MacDonald
has been but slightly modified, nnd as
a result of its protective features a
large and Important manufacturing industry has grown up in Canada and so
strengthened itself thai it can meet
foreign competition in both its own
markets and abroad. A beneficent resuli of this policy luvs been the steady
increase In the urban population of
Canada and a consequent steady development for tbe home products of
the farm, the mine, the forest and the
stream. Thus by community of interests the whole of Canada has been
It might have been possible by decreasing the tariff, to import foreign
manufactures oi a lower rate than has
been necessitated by the protection of
Canadian industries, and thus to some
extent the farming population of the
older provinces might have saved
something on their purchases of the
implements indispensible in carrying
on their operations, but on the other
hand it is certain lhat no manufacturing industries would exist, no urban
population result, and as a consequence no borne market for home prod*
UCe, This would have forced the farmer to sell his produce in a foreign
market, against the competition of foreign countries antl over the top of high
tariff walls, thus reducing his profits
to a minimum, if indeed, existence
were possible.
The farmers of Ontario have been
slow to see this aud at a recent convention In Toronto they passed resolutions demanding a reduction in the
tariff schedules so as to obtain cheaper machinery than home manufacture,
They are Insistent in their demands,
while at the same time the manufacturing element in Canadian politics is
asking for it readjustment of the tariff
involving Increase in some details,
so that still further manufacturing industries may be established in Canada.
Both these contending parties are
numerous and the conflict between
their demands is not likely to be easy
of reconciliation by the tariff reformers. The farmers' vote is a large aud
influential one, while that of the manufacturer and the industrial classes is
equally powerful.
Little else can be expected in an
election than that the industrial classes will vote for the maintenance and
extension of the industries which provide their bread, butter and prosperity,
so that we may reasonably expect to
find lhe manufacturer and his employee voting the same ticket. The
captains of the ship of state have
steered her between Scylla and Char-
ybdls, with strong and contrary winds
abaft and abeam. That some pretence
at tariff amendment will be made we
have no doubt, but that there will be
any very radical departure from the
general principles of the National Policy we have no fear. While it Is an
awkward situation for the Liberal
party, It is of their own making because they started the propagation of
the heresy "Free Trade as they have
il In England" and deluded the electorate inlo expectations which cannot
be realized in Canada. It is not surprising therefore when the farming
classes, those who first bit at the
pleasing baits of false political doctrine, find they have been deluded,
.should be insistent in their demand
that pledges be kept, or else the affairs of the country be turned over to
those who keep political faith with
���the electorate.
It is much regretted that an erstwhile peaceful section of the populace
was again thrown Into consternation
yesterday by the announcement lhat
the approaching provincial elections
will probably be held in December.
Of course, a fresh incubation was
about due, as those who had given
some-attention to the natural processes
involved in hatching know, that from
the time the hen is set till she may
reasonably be expected to bring forth
her brood, a period of from twenty-one
to twenty-four days must elapse. Anything earlier than that is likely to bo
premature, while if the period is extended the result is apt to be odorous
and pugnent.
We are solemnly assured, however,
that Mr. McBride bas requested the
consent of His Honor the lieutenant
governor to a dissolution of the house
and an append to the country late this
year. The apparent fright of the op*
position at the very thought of an elec-
liui. the hysterical attitude of both
press and people, whenever such a
contingency occurs to them as among
ih-* remote possibilities, leads one to
wonder what would be their state if an
���election were really announced and the
elates fixed.
A succession of such frights, if continued for any length of time, must
result in very serious consequences to
thf nerves of those who are so constantly on the qui vive. Both hope
ami fear, when long deferred, make
lhe heart sick, and while we do not
suppose there is any law that can be
invoked to restrain the products of the
fecund imagination of the inventor of
ihese political thunderclaps, we would
respectfully point out that an army
frightened into hysterics too often,
when there is really no immediate
prospect of battle, Is apt to caught
unprepared for battle when the tocsin
of war is actually sounded. With the
Liberal organizers running here and
iher<* and the Liberal press shouting
warnings to the faithful to be ready,
aye ready, at any moment lest they be
taken���unawares���the situation has
its decidedly humorous features.
With the editor of the Cranbrook
Herald on the warpath , or perhaps
what is better for his party, on the
still hunt, and with the lea-der or the
opposition prospecting on Mr. Shat-
ford's preserves, and the repeated sensations in the way of announcements
thai an election is approaching, we can
only surmise that It takes an unusual
amount of dynamite to keep tin* Liberals sufficiently awake, so thnt it cap-
not truly be said Ihey will be 'caught
In tlie meantime there is apparently
no particular stir among the friends of
the government. Tin* members of the
cabinet are attending to iheir departmental duties, the premier Is going to
Ottawa lo meet lhe Dominion cabinet
and the premiers of The other -provinces to discuss ami arrange for better
terms iu the distribution of tlie Dominion expenditure within the province. The rank and file oi the party
aie busy with their vocations aud for
the mosl pari are sharing the general
prosperity of the country, consequent
upon the wise administration of Its affairs and llie generally rehabilitated
condition of the finances of ihe province.
Serene in the assurancw that the
governmenl has the confidence of
the electors, and lhat, when it appeals
finally to the Country for re-election
ii will have a matured policy on every
ipiestion of public Importance, there
is no cause for misgiving, and therefore there is none.
.lust what particular difference it can
make to the Liberals whether an election is projected now or later we cannot clearly see, as the results will bo
the same in either case We suspect,
however, thai ihe game that the opposition is playing Is not quite so deep
as our Liberal friends would have the
people think. Tbe fact is they would
give both body and soul to know when
the elections will take place and they
fancy that some juvenile journalist
will jump Into the yawning gulf or
their curiosity, make a break and put
them next. Nit. Not today, nor yet
next week.
The Daily Canadian yesterday answered between 20 and 3D Inquiries as
to the truth of the rumor that John
Houston had been murdered In Gold-
fields, Nevada. To all of these The
Canadian stated that it believed the
rumor was withoul foundation. The
popularity of .John Houston was testified by the anxiety of those inquiring.
While 'I'll.' Canadian is glad to know
that there was no foundation for the
rumor, those most distressed at Its
contradiction are responsible for its
initiation and there is considerable
curiosity as to why those who ought
to be in a position to give positive denial should have apparently so little
knowledge of the facts.
The telegraph Is a great institution
especially between Nelson and the office of the Colonist at Victoria. It is
a great pity that It is not more in use

Editor Dully Canadian: ���
A few days ago I noticed In your
paper a communication from n corres-
imiident, signed "1'roKrens." on Ihe
courthouse question. 1 um iu accord
and lu full Hyinpalhy with his remarks
and H-KKeaiionB as to the use we
could make of the building, provided
the government win make It a gift to
our clly, and this appears to me a
foregone conclusion. I find In talking
the matter over with some of our citizens that there are strong grounds tor
believing tills will be done, and us a
reader of your valuable Journal 1 have
concluded that you will help us In
iiiim matter and tenure for our city a
public bull and library.
Your correspondent, "Progress," haH
put the question rulrly ami squarely
before your readers and ciiy fathers
but there is another part or the question that hus set my thinking powers
in motion and I ask the privilege ol
malting �� suggestion. Assuming that
the rumor ls true that we are to get
the old courthouse after the new one
is finished, and that His Worship the
Mayor anil his advisors are going to
move the old building, why not secure
a site now and place the building
where It may remain pennanelly and
tlius save both building and expense
of a second moving? This. I think,
should have the careful attention ot
our city council and I hope the question will be considered. 1 think the
ratepayers as a rule will support tho
city fathers in any effort they will
make In this direction. It may be
argued that It will be a long time yet
before the government Is dime with
the old building; that the new one Is
yet a long way ln the distance. That
iiuiy all be very true but In Ihe administrations! of civic affairs It ls well to
look ahead and prepare for the future.
There are olher civic problems coining
that we must face, and with your permission I may write again at some
future time, I appreciate your invitation to ubo Ihe columns of The Daily
Canadian tn discuss questions in con-
necilnn with civic life.   Yours,

"A local flHhi'itiian had a de-iieratu
encounter with a shark which hu
caught in hi. net at Toba lulct on Sat-
tirday night. The shark at once showed fight anil in the melee the fisher
man's boat was capsized. The scene
that followed beggars description.
Shark, fisherman, nel and small boat
were mixed In the turmoil. The shark
fought dospai-tely, and the fisherman
In desperation struggled to get away.
He finally managed to reach the boal
and clambered on top of It, where he
was rescued with great difficulty by
his companion-. In the nnd the shark
was captured ami towed ashore, where,
on being measured, It was found to be
13 feet in length. That It meant business In Its attack on lhe fisherman,
the hitter's long rubber ItootH bear tes
llmony, the one boot being ripped to
shreds, and the other badly torn.
