Incldenally, Wm. German, Wailantl.

German   Government   Wants   Monopoly
of   Oil   and   Acohol.
Berlin. Feb. 19.���The Imperial treasury department Is considering the possibility of u government petroleum monopoly. No decision has yet heen reach
od, hut the experts continue to study
for the taking over of the Standard
Oil company's business In Germany as
well as thnt of Its Roumanian companies.    Herr   Vou   Zedlitz,   leader of  the
free conservatives ln the Prussian diet,
who has made a special study of the
subject. Bays the empire would have
lo make an Initial outlay of $18,000,000
for oil plants, tanks, tank steamers aud
cars, but that yearly proflta of from
f 10.000,000 to $12,500,000 could be expected. The baron Ib of the opinion
that tbe government could deal successfully with the probable refusal of the
Standard company to supply crude pe-
trola-um at a reasonable rate and he
thinks the requirements of the government in American oil would be supplied
by the Texas rivals of the Standard
.  impany.
^**_**xperts have found that the oils of
' <ianfa. Galicia and Russia cannot
a ��� .>d successfully with the burners
geO >ly employed In Germany without considerable mixture of American
petroleum, consequently the projected
monopoly must Include the buying of
ever two hundred thousand tons of American oil a year. A state monopoly
in  alcohol  is also under consideration.

Second  Day's Sessions-Address by Rev.
Dr.   Shearer   Tonight.
The opening meeting of the Kootenay Presbytery held last evening was
the occasion of a profoundly Interesting address on the rise of Japan and
the general awakening of the Orient,
delivered by Rev. A. Kenmuir. of Slocan City. Mr. Kenmuir considers China
on the eve of a period of tremendous
growth and development, the power resulting from which may constitute a
serious menace to the western world.
The awakening, he said. Is due chlefb
to Japan und It is associated with deep
resentment against the white race,
which, he believes, can only be allayed
by dissemination of the Christian doctrines of peace and love.
The address was followed by an Informal and very enjoyable reception by
the ladies, with an Impromptu musical

Falls May Be Destroyed
by Power Schemes
Dr. W. J. Spencer, Retained by Canadian Government, Estimates
Effect of Proposed Use
Washington. Feb. 19.���Dr. W. J.
Spencer, the British scientist commissioned by the geological survey of Canada, to investigate the Niagara Falls
problem, discussed today the effect of
the utilization of its water by power
plants upon Its scenic beauty. At the
instance of the American civic federation. Dr. Spencer has appeared before
the bouse, rivers and harbors committee and presented data concerning
the petition of the Ontario Power company for a franchise. To develop this
power would require 40,000 cubic feet
of water per second, which, Dr. Spencer contends, ls from twenty to twenty-
five per cent, of the discharge of Niagara River and would greatly impair
the characteristics of the whirlpool rapids, lower the river bed up to the falls,
break up the surface rock at the foot
of the American falls and Goat Island
and thereby cause a more rapid recession of the horseshoe.
"At the beginning of these rapids Is
marked by a rim over which the flow
of water ls already thin, the diversion
ofwater would destroy about 600 feet
of flow on the eastern side of the great
Horseshoe and break up the American
Falls Into separated streams. The total
length of both falls will be contracted
roughly from four thousand feet to sixteen hundred feet and the diameter of
the falls from 1.200 to 800. This diversion of the water will produce a horseshoe, such that what remains will be
entirely on the Canadian side of the
boundary   line."
He argued that the lowering of the
water in the basin above the upper rapids would increase the slope of the
river so that the surface of Lake Erie
will be lowered by three feet which
would lower Lakes Huron and Michigan. Already, with a partial use. Lake
Erie has been lowered ten inches. This
amount of lowering includes that of the
Chicago canal which at present is taking five thousand cubic feet a second.
In connection with the calculations for
repairing the harbors and canals thus
damaged, the United States engineers
calculated that to increase the depth of
the Chicago canal even one foot would
cost over $12,000,000.

American Navy Department Offers Two
Old  Ships  for  Sale.
Washington, D. C, Feb. 19.���Bids
were opened at the Navy department
today for the sale of two vessels of the
United States navy that long ngo outlived their usefulness and are now destined for the junk heap. The two vessels are the civil war monitor Canonl-
cus, now at the Norfolk navy yard, and
the Pinta, at Mare Island. Of the two,
the Sanonlcus ts the only one that will
llvo ln the history of the navy. The
Pinta is interesting only as a relic of
the old navy -ays before wooden ships
had been displaced by Ironclads.
The Canonlcus has a somewhat mem-
orabli a-areer. She was built at Boston
In 18G2 and Is of 2100 tons displacement. For battery she carried two 15-
inch. smooth bora-s in her main battery,
and in her secondary battery two 12-
pounders. She was built at a cost of
about $1,000,000. In the Civil War she
wns commanded by Commander E. S.
Parrott. She was at the engagement
In the neighborhood of Dutch Gap.
when she exchanged a lively fire with
the Confederate battery at Howlett's
Point. In the Spanish war she was to
he assigned to duty as river gunboat
In Cuba. In 1904, with her sister ships,
tho Jason, Montauk, Lehigh and Na*
hunt, the Canonlcus was stricken from
the active list as having outlived her
usefulness. At the time she was appraised at $15,000. Last year tbe government refitted the famous old craft
at considerable expense for exhibition
purposes   at   Jamestown.
I. C. Decision Tomorrow.
Chicago, Feb. 19.���Leaders of both
factions among tho stockholders of the
Illinois Central Company are on edge
in anticipation of tho decision which
is to be given by Judge Ball tomorrow
In the suit Instituted by Stuyvesant

of the company's stock at the approaching annual meeting. This Is the stock

B. Hall Brown, Montreal, manager
for the London and Lancashire Life
insurance company, was heard today
on behalf of the British life insurance
companies doing business ln Canada
before the commons banking and commerce committee, ln connection with
the government insurance bill. Brown
advocated quinquennial distribution of
profits to policy-holders and assumption of these profits as liability on new
! business from the day the bill goes
Into effect, and on old business after
1914. He opposed the statutory limitation of expenses. He submitted forms

meekly bowing his head lo Die Ugh 11-
nanolers who bold a professedly Liberal aud Reform government in the
hollow  of their  hands.
The federal parliament cannot properly deal wild the affairs of Individual
provinces, since it has not the local
knowledge und lu peculiarly liable to
be swayed by considerations which
ought not  to intervene  where  tho pro
tection of the public interest is concerned. The corporations know this very
well and how helpless the supporters
of provincial rifehts are in the presence
of a federal government they can rely
upon to turn their demands Into a political and party Issue. Ontario stands
nom- too well at Ottawa these days and
particular pleasure is evidently taken in
circumscribing as much as possible tho
provincial government's opportunities
of protecting the people of the province from corporation exaction. If the
uw ra of the Hamilton Radial road have
to pay :: cents a mile instead of 2, they
will have the federal government and
iin federal parliament to thank for the
oj port unity.
I in t a greater share of the responsibility for the invasion of the rights of
Ontario, which is apparently going to
be perpetrated, lies at the door of the
so-called Liberal members of parliament and newspapers that profess to
speak for the party In Ontario. They
have plenty of lip-service for the cause
of provincial rights, but when it comet;
to crossing the will of the federal government they have nothing to say, and
their opposition to federal encroachment loses all pith and power. Were
r- preventative Liberals and the party
press of Ontario sincere In their support of provincial rights and resolved
to act in defence of them, the Dominion government would prove more
amenable to public considerations. But
the government knows that nothing serious is Intended and that when the time
comes they -will be found obediently in

Exports  to   Europe   Are   Not  for  Early
Consumption and May Return
on American Market.
There are others of our way of
thinking In respect to the unusually
large quantities of copper exported
from this country to Kurope and Asia
during the past four months, ln our
Issue of January 25 last, we Bald that
.Surope was being used as a temporary "dumping ground" for the copper
that was being sent out of this country. We did not then, nor do we
now, find fault with those who were
aloing the' "dumping" act; it was as
good a move as could have heen made
���the best tiling to have done, all things
considered. We called attention to the
facts solely for the purpose of making
clear that the sending of copperout of
this country did not necessarily Involve
its consumption abroad; did not necessarily prove that it had been purchased
for consumers' account. We went to
the length of Indicating the possibility
of some of that exported copper finding its way back to the United States,
a possibility that should not he overlooked by those figuring future supplies
and prices. There are some copper men
who are disposed to take exception to
our views and statement of the case,
asserting that they are "too narrow, too
cribbed, too confined;" that we would
be manifesting the possession of greater wisdom did we give the exports, the
benefit of the doubt and take for granted that the large quantities of copper
shipped to Europe and Asia had actually gone under order from consumers. Had it been possible to believe
that the copper had gone out of the
country to stay out, it would have been
charitable to have viewed the matter
along those lines, but it was not, and
is not, possible to see it that way.
Nor, we repeat, is our view of the case
exceptional; there are, as we have said,
others of our way of thinking; take
this from the Monthly Market Circular
of the National Conduit and Cabe Company of New York:
"Europe was a heavy buyer of cheap
copper during the last three monthB of
1907, but it Is no secret that a large
percentage of the 100,000 tons shipped
abroad between October 1 and December 31 must again come on the market
before It reaches the final consumer.
Dealers and speculators are waiting for
a chance to sell their holdings, and this
important fact is one not to be lost
sight of. If foreign trade requirements
were equal to what the enormous exports from this country might seem
to indicate on the surface, copper in
all the markets of the world would
quickly sell higher than It does. But
we all know that Europe ls not using
copper at the rate imported. A great
deal has gone into storage, and reshlp-
nients to the United States are among
Ihe possibilities, at higher prices."
Here ls another confirmation of our
view of this matter, this one from
the News Bureau of Boston:
"With over 260,000,000 pounds of copper exported from this country during
the past four months���an unprecedented volume for a corresponding period���considerable speculation as to the
destination of this metal has naturally arisen in the trade. The most general opinion seems to have been up to

What follows ls from the same article; "China several months ago bought
in America between 10,000 and 15,000
tons of copper but little of which has
thus far been shippa^d. This undoubtedly was for the most part for speculation rather than actual consumption,
although large amounts of copper are

Puzzling   Cricket.
An Knglishrnan resident in Nelson
who thought until this morning that he
knew something about cricket, asked
at this offlce for an interpretation of
the following, which appeared In a local morning paper: "In the second day's
play in the return match between tha\
M. C. C. and Victoria at Melbourne,
,'i25 runs were scored and 13 wickets
down. The Englishmen drove home
their advantage and at the close were
In an una-ssailable position, the Victorias with one wicket down in their
second   innings,   requiring  467   runs   to
avert defeat M. C. declared
their second with four wickets down
at 2241." The problem Is respectfully
Local   Hockey.
There was a good attendance at the
skating rink last night for the local
hockey match for the benefit of Frank
Nott. The teams were: Mountains,
goal, Greyerbiehl; point. Hood; cover,
Horswill; rover, H. Bishop; right
wing, Belrose; left wing, Perrler;
centre, A. Bishop; Lakes, goal,
K. Bishop; point, Deacon; cover,
Patrick; rover, Chave; right wing, Miller; left wing. Steel; centre, Gore. The
combination of the Mountain forwards
was too good for the Lakes. Patrick
from cover scored four times, but his
colleagues contributed only one, scored hy Miller, while the whole forward
line of their opponents were in the
game all the time. The score was 11
to 5. The officials were: referee, Joe
Thompson, judge of play, Capt. Gore.
The game was fast and clean and the
.spectators got their money's worth several   times.
Hockey Tangle.
The efforts of well disposed friends
to compose the quarrels of the Nelson
and Rossland hockey teams still continue. Mayor Fripp of Grand Forks has
not given up, J. E. Hooper of the Allan Hotel, Rossland, Is contributing his
good offices, and Rev. H. R. Grant,
of Fernie, formerly of Rossland, himself a hockey player, an old Queen's
footballer and one of the beat sportsmen in the Dominion, has joined the
ranks of the peace makers. But sue-
hash \~ not likely to crown their efforts.
Nelson haa played one game in Rossland this year to an $800 house and
has received nothing. They waived
everything to secure a meeting on neutral ice in Grand Forks. They appreciate the efforts of all neutral friends,
including Mr. Hooper for whose hospitality they have nothing but praise,
hut Manager .McQuarrie says that he
must receive the expenses of his team
for the last trip before he can consider
