The notice calling tke special meeting was read and the motions were
then taken up aerlatum.
As T. Morley was not present aud his
resolutions have already beeu covered
b) the Kaslo board, no action was
taken, as these motions will bo
brought up:
"That, owing to the divergent conditions existing In the soils and climatic influences of the Kootenay and
Houndary districts as compared with
those of other parts of British Columbia, or the Dominion of Canada, lt Is
expedient ln the interests of the rapid
development of the fruit growing Indus
try that an experimental farm be established ln some portion of the Kootenay or Boundary districts and that the
Dominion government be petition to
take means to carry out this object."
"Thai, the Dominion government be
asked to appoint a fruit Inspector under
the Fruit Marks Act to be permanently
resident in the interior of British Columbia, as owing to the recent changes
In the Fruit Marks Act, increased vigilance will be absolutely necessary in
order to carry out the provisions of
the act."
A. W. Dyer Introduced the following:
"Whereas, there can be <no better
means of strengthening thc links of
union between the various parts of the
empire than by the freest possible dissemination of news; and whereas, the
present Canadian press bureau in Lon
don ls not managed on newspaper principles and is, therefore, neglected by
tho principal Canadian newspapers of
all shades of political opinion: be it
therefore resolved, that thc Dominion
government be urged to place the Canadian press bureau ln London on a
more efficient footing and to further
help the Canadian newspapers in their
desire that news from London for Canada should not be sent by way of New
York, and be in tbat manner tinged
with undesirable United States coloring."
Mr. Dyer spoke briefly ln Its support,
and tt was adopted.
Capt. McMorris then offered the following:
"Whereas, the telephone is of such
public untility that lt should* be owned
and operated as a government and municipal undertaking in order that It
may serve the people as a whole and
give to every person an opportunity ot
enjoying its advantages at cost.
"And, whereas, lt Is desirable that
tbe government of British Columbia
should construct long distance line and
have such lines duly operated.
And, whereas, the local systems of
telephones should be owned preferably
by the municipalities:
"Therefore, resolved, that tn the opinion of the Nelson board of trade It is
In the Interests of the people of the
province of British Columbia that the
government should enact legislation
providing for the construction, acquisition, expropriation, maintenance and
operation of a public telephone system
oi* systems throughout the province so
aa to Insure reasonable charges for the
use of telephones and the more rapid
extension of such telephone service
throughout the province or in such districts ss may be deemed advisable."
The resolution was passed for presentation to the Associated Boards.
Mr. Morley then arrived and consented to the substituting ot endorsement ot the Kaslo resolution for his.
F. M. Black's resolution was then
read, as follows:
"That tho government at Ottawa be
memorialized to conduct a thorough Investigation Into the shortage of fuel
supplies throughout the West, experi
enced during the winter of 1906-7, and
to adopt such measures as may appear
desirable, either by railroad regulation,
coal mine operation or by compulsory
strike arbitration, or such other means
as may be desirable."
Mr. Black was not present and as
HoBsland has adopted a similar resolution no action waB taken.
The matter of reservations tn land
titles given by the C. P. R. company to
settlers on Its land In Kasl Koolenay
wub then taken up. The commitlee had
made np report. S. S. Taylor suggested
lhat a short resolution should he passed
asking the provincial government to
take steps to eliminate all reservations
except those usually mado on crown
I. O. Nelson moved tliat that the provincial government be urged to participate in the Alaska-Yukon exposition at
Seattle In 1909, and give due representation to the upper country. The mo
tion was passed.
S. 8. Taylor then moved:
"Whereas, thc West Arm of Kootenay
lake is. from scenic and commercial
standpoints, one of the greatest assets
of the city of Nelson;  and
"Whereas, it is a matter ot vital Importance to the ranchers and owners
of summer homes along Bald West Arm
that the danger from Hoods be not in
creased in flood times or that thc water
ln said Weet Arm during thc fall, winter and early spring be not lowi 'ed tc
the slightest degree below the presenl
low water limit; and
"Whereas, in the opinion of many competent men the channel at Procter cannot be deepened or widened without
lowering the present low water mark ln
the Weat Arm at low water seasons:
"Resolved that the government be requested to refuse all requests for lgis
latlen In any manner directed to the assistance or authorization of any Inter
ference with the channel of the West
Arm at or near Procter or al or near
Grohman creek or elsewhere In said
Weit Arm."
Speaking of his motion Mr. Tayloi
said that the promised benefits were
for Idaho lands and all tlie danger to
British Columbia.
Leslie Hill, who msde the original
examination for Mr. Bailiie-Grohman In
1884, corroborated Mr. Taylor as to thi
possible benefits, but said that tbe results  were  entirely  problematical.
Mr. Taylor remarked that Kaslo's en
dorsement of the scheme had probably
been given without full knowledge..
tl. O. Buchanan asked if (he charter
to Mr. Balllle-Orohman was still in
force. No one could answer. He re-
ma'ked that that charter authorized
everything asked for except the lowering of the low-water level.
Mr. Taylor's resolution was then
On motion of D. C. McMorris the fol
lowing then passed:
"Whereas, the special reservations In
serted by the C. P. R. In all deeds issued by lt respecting railway grants In
Kootenay and Yale impose unfair and
onerous restrictions on purchasers, and
whereas, no lndefeasable title can be
obtained to such lands under such
deeds, Resolved, that steps be taken to
have all reservation eliminated in provincial land deeds Issued by the C. P.
R. company, as shown in -copy of deed
attached hereto, except wherein they
conrorm with reservations made by the
crown when disposing of similar lands.'
A copy of the title was attached to
the resolution.
The Btcretary then read the resolutions of the other affiliated boards.
On Mr. Buchanan's suggestion the
board's delegates were not definitely instructed on the majority of the resolu
The resolutions were then read,
many of them being repltlons of last
year's and not a few being duplicated
On the resolution In regard to the
Lord's Day Act, L. Hill and R. R. Hedley spoke ln support.
G. O. Buchanan said he spoke as a
member ot the Lord's Day alliance, and
expressed his belief that the provincial
attorney general's discretion was merely to ensure bona fides, that provincial governments had no jurisdiction,
and that relief must be Bought, It nt all.
from the Dominion government.
8. 8. Taylor disagreed with Mr. Buchanan's view. Capt. McMorris remarked that the question would be decided by thc provincial government be
fore the board meets.
R. R. Hedley and T. Morley were
elected delegates to the Associated
lioards, with 6. Nunn, Capt. McMorrlF
nnd A. W. Dyer ss alternates.
The meeting then adjourned.

An Idle Dream.
London, March 8.���In the house of
commons Mitchell Tnomspon, Conservative, suggested that Foreign Secretary Grey utilize tho most favored nation clause of the Anglo-American
treaties with the view of securing the
admission  of British goods   into  the
United States on the same terms as
Cuban goods. The secretary, however,
said he did not believe that any benefit
would arise from such representation
at the present moment, owing to differences shown to exist In the views of the
two countries by exchanges of commun
Ications between the late (Balfour) government and the government of the
United States.
Assessment   Act   Amended    Reducing
Taxes on Land.
(Special to The Daily Canadian.)
Victoria, March 8.���Late yesterday
Hon. F. J. Fulton, K. C, was sworn ln
as chief commissioner of landa and
works. For the present he will continue to hold the portfolio of attorney
general aB well. It ts understood this
arrangement Ib only temporary and designed to leave Hon. R. G. Tatlow free
from other duties than those ot mini*
ter of finance and agriculture during
the session.
One evidence of the Increasing revenue ot the province will be evident during the early days of the preaent session of the legislature in that the Assessment Act will be amended so as to
reduce the tax on land to three-fifths of
one per cent, Instead of one percent as
It now stands. A bill has already been
drafted for the purpose and will be presented to the house either today of very
early next week. There will -alio prob
ably be the same reduction ln the pit-
sonal property tax, the Income tax,
however, remaining as at preaent.

Negotiated at Lett by Explorer Amundsen Who Mikes Observation! of
the  Magnetic  Pole.
Paris, March 8.���Amundsen, the daring Norwegian explorer, who accomplished the Northweat passage In Iiis
47-ton schooner Gzoa, spending 19
months of his three years' voyage making observations ln the vicinity of the
magnetic pole, has been lionized ln
Paris. President Fallleres decorated
the explorer as a Commander of the
Legion of Honor. Amundsen has delivered lectures before the various
scientific societies and giving an imperial talk upon his experiences for
tho benefit of France's 40 "Immortals"
at the residence of Prince Roland Bonaparte, who has recently been elected to
the institute.
"Nansen," lays Admundsen, "was always fascinated by the Idea of the
Northwest passage, which had been attempted so many times before and
never found. Yet I saw It open before
my ship the first year of my voyage,
and would not tike advantage of the
chance because my programme was to
make observations at the magnetic pole.
In the end, lt ls true, I did navigate the
Northwest passage, though when I'
reached it, It was much more difficult
than when I saw it the first year."
Amundsen expects that lt will take
three years to work out the scientific
results of the observations he made
night and day for 19 months near the
magnetic pole. While he knows that his
observations prove that the magnetic
pole Is not stationary, nntll his figures
and notes are carefully studied, it will
be impossible to say whether its oscillations are regular. Amundsen says II
the same with his meteorological
ocean���graphic aud geographical observations. They will, however, have to
be studied by scientific men to determine their value. All he was able to
say In general was that the oceanic
bottom traversed by him was flat and
sandy and the old dreams, so long entertained by explorers, of a short Northwest passage practicable for trade purpose, was exploded. The route north
of the American continent which he
discovered, he says, Is only practicable
for scientific explorations. He earnestly
hopes, however, that his example will
he followed, or that at least, a station
will be established In the vicinity of
the magnetic pole and maintained there
long enough to permit of a complete
and exhanustlve observation.
Amundsen will visit the United
States this fall.

The experience of the Dominion government and the prairie provinces with
Ihe alien Doukhobors thrown an Interesting sidelight on the problem confronting Russia in the matter of popular government. While the free citizens of a self-governing country like
Canada will naturally sympathize with
the struggling and oppressed inhnbi*
bant of the czar's empire, the question
of the fitness of the Russian peasani
for a share iu constitutional and popular government may reasonably bv
doubted. In Canada the Doukhobors
have had every encouragement and
every inducement to demonstrate their
appreciation of freedom and free institutions, Their lands were given them,
they were assisted financially to reach
the country, they were settled In communities contrary to the customs of our
own people. More than this, they were
exempt from bearing arms and were
not even required to take the oath of
allegiance. They were granted religious freedom, that priceless boon enjoyed by all Canadians, and they were left
free from nearly all of the obliga Lions
which the native born Canadian Is
taught to respect as constituting the
bulwarks of his natural heritage. Liberty has meant for the Doukhobor more
that it. could ever mean fur a Canadian
and what most Canadians would in
Belf-respect, despise. They have proved
fanatical und unassimflable and even
these things have been patiently tolerated.
Yet the Doukhobors are neither
happy nor content. They have failed
to till their lands and these have re
verted to the crown and have been preempted by others. Now it ls claimed
by the more intelligent among them
that Mr. Sifton when minister of the
interior promised them that the regulations respecting residence upon their
lands would be relaxed in their case
and they would not be required to do
as other settlers in the Northwest are
obliged to do. The government ls consequently in a pretty pickle respecting
these petted aliens whose fellows in
Russia are clamoring for popular government.
We do not doubt that Mr. Sifton
made some such promise to these people. Nor are we disposed to harshly
condemn him for doing so. Without
doubt the Doukhobors were but a short
Lime in Canada when the government
discovered that it had, in their community, a white elephant on Its hands
and the specious promise dictated by
political expediency waa more easily
made than it can be carried out., It
may even be stated that the government could not ut that time foresee the
inriux of settlers in the west and could
scarcely anticipate the rush for desirable lands that hus since taken place.
If they could have foreseen this there
would be uo excuse for the assistance
given the Doukhobors and the tender
mercies shown them since. Without
reflecting upon the government which
for the sake of peopling its vast expanse or territory shows such unusual
favors to its proteges and places them
at such un advantage over our own
people, the lesson taught as to the character of immigration Ib an Importanl
one. The European who Ib un utter
stranger to lhe institutions of the west
is unfit for citizenship in this Dominion
unless he proves himself much more
adaptable than the Russian peasant.
And when this ls said it reflects another side of the struggle that is today
causing both the duma and the bureaucrats in Russia the serious apprehension that obtains, in so far as the
peasantry and the Group of Toll ure
contending for the overthrow of bureaucratic rule the American will syni-
puthize with the Russian civilian or
serf. But the ignorance, fanaticism and
general intemperance of the revolutionary elements in Russia's population
must strike terror into the hearts of
the rulers when un unbridled freedom
is contempluted. Here in Canada, a
middle class, selected from among tbe
Russian peasantry have proved utterly
intractable. Not h withstanding they
were surrounded by every Influence and
example that would teach them the
wisdom of adopting the customs of the
laud they have fuiled to make good,
Willi control of the government of Russia the wildest vagaries of these people
would be foremost in evidence and a
taste of liberty would inflame their already murderous passions till tire and
blood would visit swift retribution and
v�� ngence upon their old lime oppressors. Naturally our sympathies aie with
the proletariat but their is another side
to the questiou which it Is unwise to
Tbe visit to the Interior this week of
the superintendent of the Children1!
Aid society and the rescue of four children from unwholesome surroundings
serves to evidence tlie magnitude of the
work curried on by the orgonlzution.
This relatively young society ut first
carried on Its work chiefly in the coast
districts where its record is one of
philanthropy and benevolence unparal-
lelled in the province. Urgent pleas
from the Interior, however .resulted in
the extension of the society's operation to the Kootenays und the boundary. As is well known, the work of
the society is to obtain, by order of the
tourtB, the custody of children whoBe
parents ure neglectful, criminul or who
huve deserted their offspring. The
work of the society is carried on unostentatiously for the reason that it is
desirable, both for parent's and children's sakes to avoid the unpleasant notoriety associated with such humiliating disclouBures as often tuke place.
For this reason the magnitude of these
operations are not realized as fully as
If more fuss and noise were made in effecting the rescue of these children.
The children when once in the custody
of the society are sheltered in tbe association's home at Vancouver.
Such is the condition of many of
these children that medical attention
is almost the first thing nieceasary on
their arrival there. When they have
reached a degree of familiarity with
their new surroundings and begin to
evince the effect of the training they
receive In the home, foster parents are
found for them by the society and they
are adopted into homes where the credentials show their future will be prelected and their lives developed even
aa one'B own.
It may be of interest to the readers
of The Dully Canadian to know that
from RevelBtoke to Michel the society
has already secured the custody of 32
children, ranging in age from 4 to 14
yeurs. Of this number 10 are from Nelson, 12 from Fernie, 7 from Crnnbrook,
and 1 each from Grand Forks, Rossland
and Revelstoke.
The work of the socltey is supported
and carried on almost wholly by the
voluntary contributions of those who
have been seized with the sense of the
importance of this special clasB of rescue work. While other organizations
attack vice ln its more developed and
criminal forms the theory of this society is that a child saved from a life
of vice, for the initial stages of which
it may be in no way responsible, Is
much more likely to become a valuable
member of society thnn a restored sinner, to whom the paths of vice are always an open temptation.
The Daily Canadian is not asking for
an increased contribution to the Children's Aid society, but It may not be
out of place to remark that while Vancouver citizens are contributing liberally to the support of the institution,
the upper country has not borne its
relative shure of the expense inseparable from the up country work. We believe these conditions exist, not because
of any disposition on the part of the
interior to shelve Its responsibility
upon others, but because the extensive
work of the society is but partially understood. This must be our apology
fer an extended reference to the work.
The appointment of W. A. Qalllher,
M. P., to the committee whicli Is to
investigate the alleged lumber combine
Is u proper und pupular one. It is but
fair thut a member of that committee
should be familiar with the conditions
In the lumbering industry as they exist
in the heart of Hritish Columbia und
from u district us largely interested as
Kootenay. The committee is in no
sense political in its complexion nor Is
lta work of a political character. Familiarity with the conditions In the
West is, however, Indlspenslble, if right
conclusions are to be arrived at. and
Mr. Qalllher has now an opportunity to
look after the interests of an Important
section of his constituency. It must
not be forgotten that until two or three
years ago the conditions under which
the manufacture of lumber was carried
on In Itritish Columbia were the reverse
of favorable. The pioneering necessary to transform initial expenditure
into profitable enterprise was both
costly and venturesome. Nor must it
be overlooked that as soon as transportation and marketing facilities became
more promising the cosl of labor rapidly advanced.
The statistic* published in yeslnrday's
Daily Canadaln show but partially what
has caused the necessary and I'mpient
advance in tbe prices of building material. Tbe list might be supplemented
by the addition of u similar one showing the Increased cost of mill hands
and supplies, .all of which eoiisidera
tlons have obliged the manufacturers,
in self-protection, to raise the [nice of
the manufactured commodity, The evidence of actual operators will have
much weight with the committee bul
the presence upon it of one whose mini-
luai residence ts in the heart of these
condlUons will do much to secure the
impartial  hearing  the lumbermen  are
entitled to. So far as nny combination
iii restrain, of trade is concerned we
have little fear thai the mill men will
huve uny difficulty in proving un alibi.
lf ull labor leaders und presidents of
labor organizations would display the
same temperate and fair spirit exhibited
by Mr. Frank Phillips in his address
before the Rossland convention the prejudice aguinst Socialism and allied agitations would be materially reduced.
With the objects Bet forth by Mr. Phillips as worthy of attainment hy the
convention there will scarcely be objections from any Quarter, and entire
absence of abusive epithets and capitalistic recriminations In the president's
address will go far to give tone and influence to the proceedings of the convention. Mr. Phillips is to be congratulated! on his moderation, firmness and
tact in stnting the case for the laboring

Shortage   of   Labor  and   Hig h Wagaa
Will Raise Price.
As tbe year advances it Is becoming
apparent tbat tbe price of copper must
gis blgher. Unless a miracle .happens,
this year's output will fall below tbat of
1906 while demand ls Increasing steadily. From all quarters, now, come admissions of the fact, long ago evident,
but accepted with reluctance, that tbe
world has entered upon a new era of
industrial development In which electricity and copper must play thc leading parts. The aluminum ghost has
been laid. The Iron wire bluff haa been
called. Consumers have settled down
to copper and common senae.
Yet with a market that ls ideal from
lhe producer's point of view, copper
production will almost BUrely show a
marked decline. *lf this were the result
of falling ore Bupplles, there would be
serious cause for alarm. On the contrary, lt may be safely Btated that there
is now vastly more ore In Bight than
could be claimed a year ago. Traspor-
tationB difilculties wil] be responsible to
nn extent for decrease of copper output, but the true difficulty lies In the
labor situation. There are not enough
miners. It follows that there Ib uneasiness. Demands for higher pay have
occurred and are likely to occur again.
Strikes and shutdowns under such circumstances are not improbable. With
2000 men laid off at Butte and 1200 at
Misbee, there can be no maintenance of
copper output at last year's rate of pro
The copper market has been stationary for some wekB, but a further advance seems Imminent. Quotations are
made by dealers for instant acceptance
only. Demand Is growing for useB
where price Is, comparatively speaking,
a minor consideration. No one seriously expects copper to go below 25 cents
this year, or next. It may well go to
30 cents before 1908.���Los Angeles Mining Review.
