Secure  Exceptionally  Favoraole
Washington. June 12.���The post-
olllce department has given out Hie
following  statement:
"The universal postal congress, recently in convention at Rome, ordered
a substantia] reduction in letter postage by increasing lhe unit of weight,
effective on and after October 1. 1907.
from 15 to 20 grams, and providing
that while postage on the first 2(i
grams shall remain at 25 centimes
illve centsl. every nddltionnl 20 grams
shall be at (he rate of 15 centimes.
Great Ilrltnln and the United Slates
strongly urged that lhe unit of weight
for them should lie fixed at one ounce,
as it would be extremely difficult for
I hem to express nil equivalent weight
for 20 grams, not having adoptel the
metric system. Tills request was
granted, nnd will give the two countries exceptionally low tales for the
exchange of letters. Under lhe reduced rates a loiter to Oreal Britain
will cost live cents for the first ounce,
and three cents for the second ounce,
or eight cents for two ounces. In other words, when the new rales become
effective, a letter packet weighing six
ounces can be sent to Orent Britain
nt the rate now charged for a two-
ounce packet."

tlcnlly endorsed (he givernm.nr's
agrarian program, having declared itself against the- weed expropriation
of land, and prop&png only two methods of relief for the peasants, namely,
purchases of land through the Peas-
nntH' Hank or transmigration to Siberia, especially commending the latter,
and recommending tlte granting of
free land in Siberia and exemption
from taxes for a certain period of
years. The congress also endorsed the
government's proposition for a dissolution of the community from anywhere
It Is desired. An Influential but small
minority, headed by Count UyarofT, of
Saratofl, protested Against the selfish
altitude of Ihe nobility, urging unavailing!)' that the large land ords, If
they wished to escape from Utter ruin,
must cede something to the peasantry,
and at least consent to th? expropriation of surplus estates. A s.r.-ui; effort is being made by the modi rate

Frank Phillip. An.wer. Charge. Mads
in  Letter of Phillip Hart���Local
Men  Alway.   Preferred.
The issue raised by Phillip Hart's
letter to the Dally News on the subject of the relative honesty of labor In
British Columbia and elsewhere has
evoked some interest, and possibly a
little resentment, among the memoers
of labor organizations In Nelson.
Briefly stated, Mr. Harl's letter asked, and suggested a negative answer,
"Does jthe western workingman jcare
as much as the easterner about returning to his employer a fair equivalent
In labor for his dally wages?"
Special application of the question,
and its implied assertion, seemed to
be made to the union laborers of British Columbia. Frank Phillips, of Nelson, is the president of the British Columbian branch of the Western Federation of Miners, and as such probably
represents more organized union laborers than anyone else in the province. Mr. Phillips said last evening In
conversation with a represeatative of
The Dally Canadian:
"Yes, we certainly do care as much
as any other workingmen, in any part
of Canada or the United States, about
earning our wages honestly.
"I don't say that there are not a few
scrubs belonging to every union. It. Is
hard, perhaps, to detect them for a
while, and hard to keep them out. But
a general charge of shirking has never
before been made against British Columbia workingmen. We've had lots
of trouble with mine owners and managers about lots of different things, but
as far as I know they have never complained that the miners of this country
didn't do their work honestly and
"Not only have the employers never
made such a complaint, but they have
constantly shown by their actions that
they don't hold that opinion. It has
been true for years, and Is still true,
that a new-comer here from the States,
or from other parts of Canada, has a
hard time getting a job. If two men
are available, one nn outsider and the
other an old-timer In British Columbia,
Ihe old-timer gets It every time. It Is
only when there is more work than
men. nnd Ihe old-timers are all em
ployed, that a new man gels a chance.
"That doesn't look as If we had a
reputation lnMhis country for shirkiug
our work nnd trying to draw pay for
little or nothing. Surely no one kuows
better than the employers and mana
gets whether or not they're getting a
fair return for their payroll every
month. There Is no sentiment lu the
matter, either. Outsiders have been
tried In a good many cases, and the
employers have always been glad to
get the old men back again. It Is a
common-sense business policy. They
know that tho average British Coltirn
bia workingman Is able and willing to
do a fair day's work for his money,
and does It."

Canadian Metal Company's Next Plans
Smelter at Pilot Boy to be abandoned���J. E. Harrington Speaks
of Frank Establishment.
The Canadian Metal Company Is out
of the lead Bmelting business definitely. The development of zinc production and treatment will be henceforth
Its chief object. As the company owns
several mines, one of which, the Blue
Bell, produces both lead and zinc, the
Pilot Bay concentrator will be kept In
use for the separation of lead and zinc
ores, but the rest of the Pilot Ba"
plant  will be permanently abandoned.
A new concentrator at the Blue Bell
mine Is now projected. When It Is
completed the Pilot Bay concentrator
will be used only for tlu separation of
custom ores.
J. E. Harrington, a local director of
the company, gave an interview this
morning to a representative of The
Dally Canadian, and spoke freely of
the company's present situation and
immediate plans.   He said:
"The Pilot Bay lead smelter is a
failure. We have given It up. Hereafter we shall use the concentrator
only for separation of lead and sine
ores. The zinc will be sent to Prank,
the lead to either Nelson or Trail.
"There Is nothing wrong or defective with the Frank plant. Some
changes have been made lately. A
stack ihat cost J15.000 wouldn't work,
and had to be replaced by four chimneys. We consider it now a model
plant, but think it has cost about 1100,-
000 more than necessary. The fact
that former defects were so few Is
largely due to Mr. Jones' disobedience
of orders. He has been made superintendent, and Is giving entire satisfaction.
"The present actual capacity is only
30 tons a day, but the roasting and gas-
producing facilities are equal to CO
tons, and the rest of the plant soon
will be. The smelter Is designed for
120 tons, and will be brought up to
that capacity probably by the end of
the year. We shall be treating 60 tons
a day within 40 days.
"Our supplies are coming now from
our own property, the Blue Bell, some
direct, some after concentration at
Pilot Bay, from the Kaslo separator���
Jackson and Ruth ore, 1 think���and
from (he Payne and other Sandon
"No, wo have not had. and do not
anticipate any trouble about freight
"I think there is no doubt that zinc
production in Kootenay will be sufficient to keep the Frank smelter in
steady and profitable operation, and to
warrant its completion to 120 tons capacity.
"A bounty? That is a question for
the mine owners rather than for us,
though, as owners of the Blue Bell, we
aro interested. It would probably
stimulate production of zinc. The
present price, however, is the highest
ever known.
"The company has suffered Bome
losses, but our troubles are over now,
we think, and our outlook for the future is bright.
"The Blue Bell is turning out to be
11 bigger and richer mine than we
know. Our plans for the immediate
future Include the building of u concentrator at the Blue Boll mine to
treat our own ores there, and save the
haul to Pilot Bay. Then the Pilot Bay
concentrator will be used only for separating lead and zinc in custom ores.
"Yes, wo are out on the Pilot Bay
Investment! We bought It outright,
as wo did all our other properties.
"The Frank smelter and the Blue
Bell mine are our chief assets, and we
have now no fault to find with either
of them. There are altogether 91 men
employed by the company at Frank,
with Mr. Jones In charge. Everything
is- now working t-moothly and ratiafac-
lorlly, ami we hope in time to make
good our losses."

The passing awaj of the Hon. Richard John Seddon, late premier uf the
colony of New Zealand, removes from
the Bphere of active colonial and i>oi.t-
leal life a remarkable, admirable and
lovable personality, In ilie prime years
ut a statesman's life, at the apex <>f
his career, and busily engaged In the
prosecution nt the designs which made
him so Important a factor in the unifying of colonial interests, tho sentence
quoted in our despatch of yesterday
gives ns the Key io his ambitions. An
Englishman by birth, lie never lacked
the slnceresl loyalty to the land of his
nativity, and tiiat her colonial possessions should foster this same spirit of
loyalty was ever his dream. Nor was
it an idle dream, for in so far as ho had
the opportunity or ability to do so, he
wrought his dreams Into practice, nnd
his lasi mission was one which tended
lu this end.
Less than fifteen yours ago Now
Zealand entered upon a now epoch in
its history. Before that time the Interests represented hy land and capital
had, on tho whole, ihe controlling voice
in thi' government of ihe colony. Now
it is labor ihat is the predominant partner. In the earlier years of iis history
the colony was busy with the practical
work of pioneer settlement, fighting
the Maori, constitution-making, con*
siructing roads, railways and bridges.
By tho year 18D0 these activities bad
practically ceased, the natiws were
pacified and ihe Btream of Immigration
was almost at an etui. A time of severe commercial depression followed;
lands, woods and wages had fallen in
Value, and the unemployed were c.am
orlng for broad. These conditions are
always the precursor and preparation
for a social change, one of the hisi
acts of ihe so-called "continuous ministry" had been lo place 'he electoral
franchise on a manhood basis, embody
Ing the principle of one man, one voto.
This resulted in Ihe capture of the legislative house by the progressive party,
or Socialist Radicals, as they really
were, and of which the late Hon. K. .1.
Seddon was a member. At the head of
this party was Mr. John Hallance, a
journalist who had had considerable
parliami ntary an 1 some ministerial
experience. Mr. John MacKonzle, another of tlie ministerial members, a
Scotsman by birth, an inveterate foe of
land monopolies und "dummy" speculators, while Mr. Seddon bad won rich
experiences of frontier life and pioneer
hardships in the gold diggings "f the
west coast, lie had sat for fourteen
consecutive sessions in the house, an 1
had, given repeated evidences of those
qualities of mind and heart which have
efnee made him to sutcessiul as a
leader of men.
The elevation of Mr. Seddon to the
premiership of the colony took place
In 1893. and" was consequent upon th
death of Mr. John Hal'anre. His ministry successfully weathered the storms
of three general elections, and as a te
suit of ihe last of these ihe old-time
political party received iis everlasting
In -in-' Important particular ih'' niin
istry ot .Mr. Seddon departed from lhe
policy of its predecessor as propounde I
b> Mr. Hallance The non-boi rowing
part of thai policy was abandoned, and
ihe public debt of the colony was Increased by some seven millions of do]
lars. The study of-the agrarian legislation of the colony, as a so its labor
laws, make interesting passages in
economic history; and while in these
features iis legislaiion Is perhaps
unique, it ikissoskcs many chaiacterlst-
Ics which are of extra colonial interest In the readjustment of all forms
of taxation, and in the general fiscal
policy of the colony. Mr. Seddon's
strong personality, keen Intellect an.l
unfaltering courage were repeatedly
marked. Now that he Jias gone from
earth, ids a satisfaction to know that
he lived long enough to guide the destiny of his adopted country far enough
on the way of its experimentation in
demonstrate that piogress. and even
radical advancement, is something
more than a frenzied dream.
Russia has certainly fallen on evil
times. The. recent resignation of
Count Wltte from the premiership of
ihe Doiuna. and the appointment of
Goremykin in his place, was a doubtful expediency, but probably forrui
upon tiie czar by political exigencies.
If the more recent rumors nre to be
credited, and Mr. Goremykin is to be
asked to retire from his portfolio, the
incident will nut tend to restore ihe
confidence of I he Russian people in
the sincerity of their emperor. Tie
stubbornness of the Douma and its determination to insist upon radical reforms may make Ihe office of this or
ihat minister a mere sinecure, ami il
they persist in their demands, it may
appear as of little moment to them
who is this or that. Having taken the
affairs of empire in their own hands,
ihey will neither he cajoled, threatened
or thwarted hy any tentative substitutions ihe czar may offer.
Tin- Cranbrook Herald of last week
points out thai then' is abundant good
Conservative material around dan
brook from which to select a big stick
iu bailer the imposition in the mxi
election, Ii mentions three or [our
persons, cither of whom would make
an efficient ami popular Conservative
member for that constltucuMy, But
when il comes to discuss the prospects
for the Liberals, only one name is submitted as among the possible candidates. Ur. King is a good fellow, but
the Conservatives won't do a thing-'o
him if he inns again for the local
Itostad. iu the Toronto Telegram,
has distinguished himself again as a
cartoonist in a recent representation
of Hon. A. B. Ayleswortb as minister
of labor. Clad in the proverbial hod-
carrier's garb, and with a dudeon in
his mouth, he naively asks, "Who says
1 ain't a working man, an' me a bench
or of lhe' Ontario Law Society, the
biggest  trades union on earth?"

The Natal Trouble.
Though d stttrbances siiii cont'nue
with more or loss s rlous engagements
between the colonist troops an I natives, there are �����. id. noes thai th i rebelling blacks are l eglnnlng to lose
heari so w what, and II is fervently
hoped thai the worsi of Hi" trouble is
over. The staunch loyalty of some of
the native chiefs has been mosl gratifying, and lo thai fact is due tbe early
weakening of the rebel movement.
When the rebellion la suppressed a
commission on native administration
and legislation will be appointed to
go thoroughly Into the whole native
question with a view to the working
out of a satisfactory and equitable policy of dealing wiih the natives. It is a
difficult problem indeed, and one demanding the greatesl of wisdom and
prudence. In all probability It will be
approached In a spirit of conciliation
and moderation thai could hardly have
been expected a few months ago.
Among South Africa's many problems
thai one of the native and his status
looms very large.

Permanent   Provision   for   Illumination
���Title to   Foreshore  Secured���
Many   Important   Decisions.
PormantMil provision for the illumination of Baker street w.ih resolved
"i|ion by lhe clly council hist night after hearing representatives of the celebration committee nnd the fair director?. The city's initial expense will be
about |160, and annual additional expense about $50.
An Important question of the carty
future was touched, but -not derided���
the policy in regard to supply of power
to Industries after the completion of
the power plant.
Tlie negotiations for thi; new plant
were reported as still unfinished. Many
other questions, soraewhal of a routine
nature, but still important, kept the
council men busy for over two hours.
The council came to order promptly
at 8 o'clock, Mayor Qllletl In the chair,
and Aldermen Hutne, Annable, Irving,
Kirkpatrick and Hose present. The
minutes of the last meeting were read
and approved.
.1. (i. Killings, who was present for
the Vale-Columbia Lumber Company,
was invited to address the council. He
said that no screen fine enough to
prev nt (he escape of mill ashes would
allow the general ion of sufficient
Rteam. The company is now negotiate
ing wiih experts of the Pace company
ai Revelstoke, and hope to remedy the
defect. Mr. Hillings added that the
Company would do all in its power to
accommodate  the  city.
Alderman Kirkpatrick���Is there any
danger of fire?
.1. 0.   Billings���None whatever.
Alderman   Irving���Il  sells  the boats.
Alderman Kirkpatrick���We've come
to a pretty pass if we have to hamper
one of our few Industries for Ihe sake
of owners  of pleasure  boats.
W. .1. Astley was invited to speak on
behalf of the boatmen. He said that,
while they did not apprehend danger
from fire, the ashes seriously Interfered
with the business of boaimen and con
stituted a nuisance. He only asked
that if anything could be done it should
be done.
The mayor thought that Mr. Hillings'
undertaking to do everything p.siible
might be accepted.
W. Irvine and T. Morley appeared
for the celebration commiltee and fair
directors respectively, and were next
invited to speak.
Mr. Irvine referred to the annual expense for extra street lighting, and the
advantage of making permanent provision for it. He offered, if the city
would supply power and lamps and
siring wires to Baker street, the celebration committee and the fair direc
tors would bear the rest of ihe cost.
The offer was endorsed by Mr. Morley on behalf of the Agricultural So
ciety executive.
The offer was received with general
favor, but Mayor Gillett remarked that
the West Kootenay Power and Ught
Company had notified the city to use
the least possible amount of power, as
their other demands were grovvlug
A motion was offered by Alderman
Irving, seconded by Alderman Kose.
that  the  request   be  granted.
Alderman Annable advocated the
payment by the celebration committee
and fair directors of their respective
shares, $200 each, of the estimated
cost, and the Work he done under the
supervision of the city superintendent
of electric lights. The motion carried.
The finance committee reported, recommending a payroll for stieets and
sidewalks amounting to $214.86, nnd
an account of the Kootenay Engineering Works of $440.80, The report was
adopted and  payment  ordered.
A letter from Chief Denny pies-tiled
the report of the fire department for
May. He staled that there bail been
three  fires,   with  a  total   lows of $1.16,
fully covered by insurance. The equipment had been tested and found satisfactory. Inspections had been made of
many buildings and of schools, and
fire extinguishers had been placed In
the central school. Frequent drills of
the brigade had been held.
The report was referred to the fire,
water and Hghti committee.
A further report referred to two
horse collars ordered from Toronto
several months ago. and found unsatisfactory.    The reporl was filed.
Dr. K. 0. Arthur, clly medical health
officer, reported Inspection of dairies
and finding them siitl^faclory.
Another letter In regard to an account repudiated by a former council
was referred (o the city so.icilor.
A loiter from G. W. Taylor complained that a charge for water rates
and sewer rentalR had been made
against property formerly belonging to
EOmesI Mansfield, purchased hy liliu nt
a tax sale. The city clerk said that
he had notified the purchaser, or his
agent, of the arrears of collectable
(axes.   The letter was filed.
The City solicitor reported progress
In preparations for answering the appeal of the West Kootenny Power nnd
Light Company. Another referred lo
the   city   foreshore   title,   nnd   advised
tbat blue prints of the plan be made
before   registration.
A letter from B. A. Isaac, of the Nelson Iron Works, asked if the city Intended to order all users of city power
to take electric power, and if ho, when?
He asked  that ample notice he given.
The mayor explained that Mr. Isaac
purposed Immediate extension, and
warned leave to get extra power from
The question of the city's policy in
regard to power after the completion
of the power plant was then discussed,
bul no decision was r. ached.
In regard to Mr. Isaac's request, ll
was agreed that, the city could not furnish more water power. The mayor
was authorized to act.
A request from the tramway condue-
lors asked for the same increase as has
lately been granted to motormen. The
request was for an Increase from $2.1"
to %'.', a day and 40 per cent, of the cost
of a new uniform once a year, It was
resolved that) the /onductors receive
$2.7f> a day and lo per cent, of the coat
of  uniforms.
A letter from K. Crow Baker in reply to lhe mayor's telegram rejecting
the condition tbat the park he used
only as a park was read. Mr. Baker
stated thai lhe company could not
consent unless the city agreed, if iho
laud were given up aB a park, (hat (he
company might buy il back at the same
Tbe mayor stated that he had wired,
"Shall we return deed, and call he deal
off?" and bail received no reply.
The mayor also stated tbat the former tramway park was available for
tbe year on payment of $50 taxes.
The matter was left in the bands of
the mayor.
Bylaw No. 1C7, firearms and blasting
bylaw, was then reconsidered, finally
passed and adopted.
Alderman Rose again brought up the
question of extending the water ser-
vieo to the Eagles' plot in the cemetery. It. was referred to the n^xt meeting. Alderman Hose asked also for
an extension of water service to M.
Maglio's property on Kootenay street,

light committee.
Alderman Irving asked for a new
short sidewalk on Hall street, near

Alderman Rose asked about a sidewalk on Josephine street, above Mill.
The matter was referred to the board
of works.
The mayor suggesied that owners of
burned buildings be ordered to take
them down. Referred to the city solicitor.
The council then adjourned.
General Stoessei, lhe Russian general who surrendered Port Arthur to
the Japanese forces, has been sentenced to death by court-martial. It is
almcst inconceivable that the sentence
should be carried out, but they do
things in Russia that would be inconceivable elsewhere. General Nogi,
I. ader of tbe Japanese attacking forces,
has defended Stoessei in his surrender,
slating that insubordination among the
Russian officers made any other course
