that lhe l/w Star und Washington
properties owned by tlle British Colum
hla Copper Company are now work-
lug u good force of men and making
regular shipments to the company's
smelter at Greenwood.
The Minnehaha property near Dun
villi- Is also being steadily developed
preparatory to shipping, the nature of
the development work being done on
this property being that of ruuning a
long tunnel, which it is expected will
lap the ore body at u considerable
depth and will practically demonstrate
thc value of the property as a shlppar.
Mr. Jennings says that although these
two properties are the only ni ws work
this winter in thc Immediate vicinity
of Danville, yet in the early spring it
is tully expected tbat several other important properties on La Fleur mountain will start up, including the old La
Fleur mine, which has been known
throughout this district for the last 20
years for its immense surface showings
of Peacock copper ore.
One of the most bitterly contested
elections ever held, in this distriet was
terminated here last Saturday, and although there was considerable bad
feeling between the three political par
ties while Ihe campaign lasted, now
that lt Is over the best of feeling prevails on all sides, those who are not
satisfied with the result accepting the
situation as the inevitable and all will
uow work for the welfare of Grand
Forks irrespective of politics.
Word has reached here loday from
Camp McKlnney that the work of pumping out the water from the deep shafts
and other workings al tbe Cariboo
mine Is still going on. there being a
much greater quantity of water than
was at first anticipated. It Is fully ex*
liected that thc water will be sufficiently lowered to permit of the mine be
Ing worked by the middle of March.

lations between Nlcarague and Hondu
ras have been broken off ns a result
of trouble between Ihe two countries,
owing to the recent invasion of Nicar-
aguan territory by Honduran soldiers.

Penitentiary 6    ding to Be Offered at
Rare Bargain Price.
New York, Feb 7.���If the Chicago

time ago by declaring his intention to
build a private prison at Joliet because
the authorities would not Imprison hlm
In the regular slate penitentiary will
visit Brooklyn tomorrow he will have
an opportunity to buy the genuine nr-
tide at a bargain. At 11 o'clock tomorrow morning the Kings county penitentiary building and all its fittings will
be sold to the highest bidder.
By April 1 the historic old prison,
which Ib a conspicuous figure of Ihe
landscape aB it stands perched on a hill
on the way to Coney Island, will have
become a thing of the past. It was
built so long ago that the exact data
of its erection is In doubt. At that
time the location was an isolated one.
But in late yean) the city of Brooklyn
has grown so rapidly that hundreds of
handsome houses now Bland within a
stonesthrow of the sombre old edifice,
and it finally became such an eyesore
in the community that the authorities
were prevailed upon to let it fall in
tbe march of progress and public Improvements.
Since the demolition of the old
Tombs the Kings county penitentiary
has had the unenviable distinction of
being the most historic prison in the
vicinity of New York. It has held
many notorious criminals in its day.
But now the old prison has played Its
part in the history of the metropolis,
and il will soon vanish, leaving as tbe
only reminder of Its existence Innumerable stories, in some of which tragedies are strangely interwoven with
Zion Will Be Deserted   and    Left    to
Dowie's Creditors.
Chicago. Feb. 7���Zion City is to be
deserted by Wilbur Glenn Vollva and
all those over whom he holds sway.
A new Zion City is to be founded,
probably on the Pacific coast and Dr.
Dowle and his creditors will be left to
fight out the question of supremacy
here. Last summer Overseer John G.
Speicher was sent to Los Angeles to
assume charge of the various colonies
on the Pacific coast. lt was said
Sjieicher waB to select Ihe site for the
new colony. This was confirmed yesterday by Vollva. The existence of factions in Zion is one of the great contributing causes of the change, together
with the hopelessness of making the
religious leader supreme to both temporal and ecclesiastical affairs so long
as tbe heavy debt hangs over the
"Not political, but Christian socialism," has been the text of many of
Voliva's sermons. He believes such a
colony founded in some warm climate,
where fruit raising, truck gardening
nnd agriculture can be engaged In
would prove a success.
Sir Wilfrid Calls for Resolution Previously Tabled.
Ottawa, Feb. 7.���In the house of
commons yesterday Sir Wilfrid Laurier

France  Forbids Formation ef Associations rf Pedagogues.
Paris, Feb. 7��� A new phase of the
question of tbe right ot the public employees to orgsiuise after the fashion
of trades unions, has arisen 1 nFrance.
The school masters of several districts
rave formed associations upon the instigation of the radical socialists and
bave joined the general labor federation. There Ib no attempt to -conceal
the fact that tbe true purpose ot the
organization of teachers waa the pro
pagation of the doctrine of anti-mill-
larism as expressed by Herve and his
followers, internationalism os preached
by Juares, and the general Idea of the
solidarity of the interests of tbe workmen as against those of the capitalist
The government promptly forbade
"teachers' syndicates." Mr. Briand In
announcing the decision to tbe deputation said: "Because of the nature of
your services the state can never permit you to act as other employees do.
You are not working tor an ordinary
employer but tor the state, and revolt
against the state ls revolt against the
country, whose representatives vote
your salary."
Congress to Be Held in Calgary In the
Early  Spring���Area  Exceeds Territory In Whole United Statea.
Calgary, Feb. 7.���Calgary was visited
by a Chinook today and active work in
thc building t rsdes began again today
In earnest. This Is the first warm day
experienced since January 23. The
railway trains are still very irregular,
but the coal famine seems to be at an
end. .
At a meeting of the public works
committee held today it was deided to
recommend to the council that a street
railway be constructed 12 miles long,
with 12 cars. The cars would run from
one end of the city to the other with
a loop from Main street each way ln
tbe middle ot the city.
John E. Bull, manager of the Bell
Telephone company, in an interview today admitted that tbe Bell Telephone
company was seriously considering the
proposition of Invading the city of Edmonton, which bas a private system
of telephones, but would not* say definitely that auch action would be taken.
Arrangements are being made for a
big Irrigation congress in Calgary In
thc early spring. At the present time
the Calgary district possesses a greater system cf irrigation than any state

New ork, Feb. 7.���The congregation
ot the Methodist church at Nether-
wood, N. Y., are having the wife of
their minister, Rev. Elmer Lakin, act
as his substitute.    Mr., Lakin became
III with appndfcltls tbree weeks ago,
before the Sunday morning service and
Mrs. Lakin held tbe services, and even
preached. Afler lhe Bervice she was
assured by the pleased parishoners
that It would nol be necessary to obtain
a substitute for the church during Rev.
Mr. Lakin's illness, as she had proved
herself so capable.
Negroes Dismissed Without Honor Now
in Court.
Washington, Feb. 7.���The Investigation by the senate committee on military affairs of the Brownsville affray
began today. A score of negro soldiers
of the Twenty-fifth infantry who were
discharged without honor were present,
but only a limited number were permitted to sit in tlie committee room
during thc committee hearing.
Attorneys were barred, the negro
soldiers having no representatives present. It is undei stood Senator Foraker
will look after the interests of the men
If they are placed In jeopardy.
Senator Foraker called former Sergeant Israel Harris lo the stand regarding the happenings ot August 13
and 14.   He said:
"On that night we had some disturbance, some shooting, I mean. I
waa asleep In D barracks and about 12
o'clock I was amused by the noise of
guns. Then there was the sound to
arms, and company D got dressed and
we started tor our guns."
The witness then told of getting the
guns in the dark after racks had been
opened. He described tbe racks and
showed that there Is but one key to a
rack, and that this key will unlock
only one rack, and tliat the keys are ln
the possession of noncommissioned officers. The witness said when the company formed outside, Captain Ivon sot
D company was present and immediately called the roll and personally counted his men, and that none were absent.
Calling for the guns furnished to the
committee by the war department. Senator Foraker had first one gun Identified by t he witness as a new model
Springfield rifle, and another as the
Krag-Jorgensen rifle. The former was
In use by D company, but the witness
waB familiar with the Krag.
He testified that a gun cannot be
cleaned to pass inspection without the
regulation rod, and that only four such
rods are provided for each company.
He said that one shot would put the
gun In condition to require almost aa
much cleaning as six or more shots, his
inference being that It would have been
impossible for any guns of D oompany
to have been in use ln the shooting up
of Brownsville and to have been cleaned surreptitiously so as to pass Inspection when the racks were unlocked and
the guns Inspected the next day.
Senator Foraker developed the fact
that the trouble had previously occurred between the negro and troops
and people in Texas.
Old Settlers Will Arrange for Co-oper
stive Prospecting.
Toronto, Feb. 7.���An Important
scheme Ib on foot with a view to proa
pectins tor minerals on the many acres
of land held in Northern Ontario by
veterans who have been awarded grants
for their service to their country. A
number of veterans, assisted by some
capitalists, are organizing a company
which will shortly be Incorporated with
a capitaliaztion ot one million dollars.
Their object is to secure the mining
rights on 100 claims. In return they
are offering the veterans in the first
place $100 of tully paid up stock in the
company. In the second place. If minerals are found on the claim the company agrees to give the veterans $1000
of stock and 10 per cent, of the net
profit derived from mining the said
claim. Thc company will be known as
The Veterans' Prospecting a. Mining
company, and they have already secured options on about 40 claims.
It is argued by the promoters that
there is a splendid chance of locating
minerals on some at least ot the many
claims, and thus all would benefit. On
the other hand, prospecting on the individual claims would prove a costly
Well Known Nelson Citlxan Denies Severity of Winter.
Calgary, Feb. 7.���J. H. Drewe, manager of the J. H. Ashdown Hardware
company, at Calgary, seen at the Royal
Alexandra yesterday, expressed a more
hopeful opinion ot the situation In the
Western ranches than recent telegrams
would lead one to expect. Recent reports, he says, are a good deal exaggerated. He has within.tbe last week or
two been over the ranching oountry
along with bankers and his customeis,
and he, has come lo the conclusion that
the losses up to tho present at any rate
are not serious. The losses may amount
to about $200,000, quite a amall. proportion of the total value of the stock. The
losses are mostly, among the "dogles"
or Imported cattle, tne native-bred cattle knowing better where to seek shelter. Cattle never stampede In cold
weather but drift before tbe wind till
they find shelter In coulees. Many of
the imported stock, however, have drifted 100 miles from home. Another feature Is that the losses are principally
among the larger ranchers: small
ranchers have put up sufficient hay
for their herds and their losses will be
no greater than an average winter.
Calgary haa not Buttered from lack
of fuel. Being near tbe source of supply it has never been in want although
the stock has at limes run low.
The Aashdown Hardware company
are going to build a large wholesale
emporium at Calgary. It will have four
floors with an area of 60x120 feet. This
goes to show the prosperous condition
of Calgary and of the provinces.
Dastardly Deed.
Chatham, Feb. 7.���Michael Ion, aged
18 years, wss standing at a street corner Tuesday when he was accosted by
a strange rwho asked him to show him
the way to the railway station. When
about balf way there tbe stranger aaked the youth to stop Into Hadley's
lumber yard, where he produced a bottle of red liquid which be claimed waa
a new medicine which he would like

stranger gave the arm a jolt, which
made Ion swallow a lot of It. He did

Every Foot of Oil Landa In Manitoulin
Already Cinched by Capital,
Says Gamey.
Toronto. Feb. S.���Every foot of
ground on Manitoulin Island ln which
there Is a probability of oil being found
has been leaaed by American or Canadian Capitalists, said R. R. Gamey, M.
P. P., in the course ot an interview laat
night. "All hitherto waate land baa
freen taken up, and the possibilities for
oil development therein are being vigorously explored." Continuing, Mr.
Gamey gave a review of tbe oil development on the island as follows:
"Quite a number of wells bave been
sunk ln the eastern section which are
said to be producing a fair amount of
oil. Last fall a mile west of Manlto-
wantng a flowing well was struck
which ts capable of producing 25 to 30
barrels of excellent oU per day, and Is
owned by Benjamin Trees ft Co.
"ln the west end, in the town of
Gore Bay, Slater ft Co., of Leamington,
associated with a local syndicate, bave
drilled tbree wells to a depth of 300 to
4*00 feet, though these have not yet
been "shot." Pumps for testing purposes were put on the laat one of the
three and for ten days the production
was 20 to 30 barrels dally. Thla oil,
300 barrels altogether, ia at preaent ln
tanks. The company haa moved the
drill to an adjoining property with excellent prospects, it ls aald.
"In the centre of the island, back of
Shequlndah the Manitou Oil ft Oaa Co.
have a flowing well with a capacity of
10 to 15, barrels a day."
"What capital Is Invested ln tbe oil
Industry?" he waa aaked.
"So tar," he replied, "not more than
$50,000 has been spent tn testing and
wlldcatting. but I am told there were
never better resulta with th esame ex
uendlture of money."
Repudiates Slander.
London, Feb. 7.���Victor Castile, secretary of the church army, speaking to
the Canadian Associated Prats said his
attention had been called to an article
in the Vancouver World of January 6
which Indicates that the church army

emigrants men who have been in prison or are of bad character. Among

the Grit organ, which wo Khali loavo
unnamed, but the future of the govern-
meni is put before the public in a
Horlts    of    intentionally    embarrassing
questions, <>f which tin- con-Qjttdlng par
at.raph is a fair sample. Tho organ
siya, speaking of Premier McBrlde's
letuin to power:
"His opportunity has come, and with
that opportunity he must feci* the first
real test of his capacity as an administrator and legislator. If be rises (o the
��� occasion ami proves that ho i.s big
-enough man ro handle the rapidly growing business of lhe province* in a statesmanlike manner, no one will mora free
ly accord him tha full measure of credit
lhal will be his due than will the loar
fr of the opposition. But ho must first
demonstrate his ability, it will be wiih
Interest keener than usual, then, that
the speech from the Hi rone whh which
the session will be opened���the official
statement of the government's legislative proposals���will he awaited." *
It ls quite unnecessary for The Ually
panadlau to anticipate the speech from
thi thrcne or to outline at this stage
the prospective legislation of the gov-
emment The utter Ignorance, help
lessneSB and despair of the o;>|>OHhlon
is already confessed In th.- few sen-
t nces quoted above. The unqualified
endorsatfap of the record of the McHrlde administration by the people of
the country has already struck terror
to the hearts of the undisciplined and
incapable opposition and, realizing
their own weakness, they await only
the discovery of some new evidence of
aggressiveness and progress on the
part of Ihe government upon whicli to
base a new criticism of the government's policy which shall be of an obstructive character. The determination
of the opposition to sh in judgment
on every proposal of the government
| and to obstruct every act of progressive legislation is already apparent and
there must be some well understood
arrangement between the opposition
and their organs In order thai there
be such early announcement of" the op
position program.
What lho opposition may do is not,
however, the tpiestlon. What will ihr*
premier do Is a question much more to
the point, and we nre thankful to the
organ in question for raising the issue,
The answer to the query is easy and
i:* suggested immediately by what the
.McUride administration has already
done. The country has spoken in un*
mtatakeable terms as to the past rec
ord of the government, and by so doing so has already expressed Its convict ion of what is in store under a continuance of the same regime. For the
Opposition press to play tho watchdog
and announce thus early that it will
spring at the throat of the government
on the first occasion is no way by
which to attempt to rehabilitate the
confidence of the country in the opposition. 11 is apparent] however, that
(Ik same tactics which have made ihe
namo of Liberalism iu lirillsh Columbia
Odloufl to the electorate are to be resumed Immediately upon the reading of
the spe'-ch from the throne on the meeting of the house. We can, however,
await whh calmness the future dls
c'osures of such tactics and deal With
them ns occasion may arise.
McBil.le will Introduce legislation
which will guarantee the advancement
of every Industry in the province. He
will, with his colleagues, give this
province the most progressive govern-
mem it has ever had. He will neglect
nothing that Is in the interests of the
sovereign people, and he will maintain
the equality ot people and corporations
iu tbo eyes of the law with* special
privileges to nom-. but equal opportunities to all. He will be the slave of
no faction in the house or out of it, and
his past record is the best guarantee
of this. He will not spend money to
buy constituencies, hut he will not
Withhold nny in order to vent his political wroth upun the recalcitrant. In
���bort, be will give  Hritish Columbia a
government which win be the pride of
Canada and will justify what the Orit
organ in question published in its news
columns of the same day���a justification of a laudable ambition to become
tho leader of tie* CqjMU native party ol
It Is quite true that Mr. McBride'fl
opportunity has come. That he will
fail to make good is not to be supposed.
Should be do so there will be no
more disappointed people than those
who believe In hlm today, but that his
star is iu the ascendent can no more
le disguised than that he lives anil
leads his governmenl. The Liberal
press may prepare to squeal and whine
as it has always done, but the whole
dtama of the opposition will degenerate into a more comical farce than has
anything so far transpired and the an-
ticipa'ory wail of the Orit organ is only a sample of what is anticipated by
the aggtegation of the faithful followers of the moribund Ottawa government, who already see the beginning
of the end.
FOollsh, indeed, are thosr* poJfVinns \
who excite hatred    hi the   hearts and
minds or voters against (he opposition i
candidates.    Then-   never  llted a   pa* j
triot of any html who    had    f...lowing j
enough to got  a nomination honestly, i
who would uot ln case of necessity to i
choose, .land for country first and pur- I
ty   afterward.    There  lives no  honest j
man, however ignorant, hut If he la in
a   public office,  would do  his  best  to j
fu'fill the duties of that office and be
a patriot, regardless of party.
Puny differences should arise upon .
principles oT administrative government j
and ihnt party which can show lhe best ]
mode    and    operation    of    government
should be placed in power, and it usually is.    In local governments whore tbo
character  of the  candidates  is the issue and their fitness is or public Import,  the  best   niun should  be  elected.
It is very wrong to slander, villi Ty
and besmlrk the character of a candidate. He may be elected, and If you
art of any Influence you have made
rebels to the government at heart, If
not in fact. After every election patriots will forget party, remember principle and work consistently for the sup*
I ort of the government.���Th'* ('nasi.

The action of Governor Swettenham
in ordering the retirement of American
sailors from Jamaica after the effects
ol the recent earthquake had become
apparent, created but a temporary sensation in international circles and has
since died an early and easy death as
aii event of International importance.
The misunderstanding over the action
of the San Francisco school board in
excluding the Japanese residents from
the native schools does not, however,
SO easily down, and whether it be that
yellow journals are magnifying the
event into undue importance or that
there is really some international complication behind the affair, the latter
Incident keeps the limelight.
There would seem to he a dual com
plication underlying the San Francisco
incident, the first feature being the
rights of lhe state as against the federal union, and the second one a racial
question which has always heen a
vexed one where racial equality has
been demanded. As between the individual state and the federal union
there could never he anything hut inconsequential differences such as might
he easily adjusted, hut the pride and
perhaps the vanity of tho Japanese
puts a different light on the situation
from an international point of view.
The Japanese moral code, while equal In
many respects to that of the American
people, differs essentially in matters
of se._ relationship, and It is the opinion
of this paper that the exclusion of
Japanese students from the public
schools under the circumstances which
exist in San Erancisco was. and is, per-
fect'y Justifiable, In saying this we
make no necessary reflection upon Japanese morals which will, we believe, on
ihe whole, compare favorably with
those of any other nation. The question is one too delicate for open discussion, but it is well understood by those
who appreciate the pith of the contention of the American school  board.
While we should be the lasl to look
lor war or other serious trouble between these two great nations over a
question apparently so simple, the attitude of Japan, her studious politeness
nnd extravagant, wish to belittle the incident look ominous on the surface.
Tho diplomatic Importance which has
been attached to the questiou has,
moreover, a significance which is indisputable, and thai such an affair
could hold the hoards for so long aud
be for so long tho matter of diplomatic
negotiations, denials and affirmations
is not to be overlooked.
Thai the state of California will recede from its position is not for a moment lo be anticipated, and lhe attitude
of Japan must determine the exact international significance and impor*
lane:; of the Incident. Under these circumstances ll is impossible to foresee
what may be Ihe outcome, but h will
be just like Japan to keep tho matlor
in diplomatic cold storage until such
lime as the nation may see fif to strike
when there may arise complications bo-
iween the. East and West that will
mean another CeloBtlaf affair, with re-
stilts little less costly to America than
Iho late war whh Russia. It Is no use
belittling nffalrs which persistently
keep diplomats busy, as has been the
case of this unfortunate San Francisco
event. Fortunately Canada has no such
trouble on her hands, and we hope It
may bo long years beforo she becomes
implicated ln such uncertain Incidents
The teamster���we do not mean the
Deemster. Immortalized by Hall Caine-���
we mean the teamster immortalised by-
nobody excepting himself. The literal
slave who toils abnormally long hours,
not that be may profit from his toll,
but thai his fellows mny not feel the
pinch of want or cold, ln all weathers and in all hours braving the elements that someone in need of something only he cau deliver, may have
cans? to thank Qod thai be is not as
other men aiv. And when he comes,
cased In snow and smitten with frost,
who thinks that perhaps his own home
is hi need of the very comforts he has
biought to Our friends? It all goes to
show how Integral Is every part of society and how dependent the whole Is
upon tacit part. Perhaps tbs teamster
needs us. but not more than we need
him. When your house la warm and
cosy remember what It may have cost
a multitude to make It so

Tlie coul famine In the NorlhweBt In
not only a disgrace to the Northwcet
as great as it Is inexcuaable, but lt is
a blot upon the Integrity of tho mine
owners  anil ihe  government as  dark
and deep as it is uncalled for ami humiliating.    With mountains filled with
coal and men willing to mine II, cities
anil districts are compelled to see Iheir
families suffer apil their homes freese
for the lack nf It.    Driven to desperation, men have been compelled to he-
come highwaymen lo secure sufficient
coal to keep alive.    In days of pros|>er-
Ity it seems strange  tbat   lliis should
be so.    It Is true because of the control, or [>ossession, of the mines in the
hands of or under the dlreclion of the
transportation   companies.      No    mine
s*wner Is permitted to succeed at the
business of milling coal unless he bows
tn the dictation of the transportation
company which hauls the product from
his mine to the consumer.   This places
both the operator and thc user at thc
Btercy of the company hauling the coal.
If    the transportation companies do
not have facilities to get the products
of the  mines  to  the consumer,  they
should provide them. Instead of distributing the earnings of these companies
in dividends.    The railroads  have  ns
much a duty to build new lines, double
track, etc., to    keep    pace    with    the
growth and development of the country,
as they have to maintain service over
the lines that are already built and it
ahoultl be made a penal offence to dissipate the income of a railroad in div
idends and uncalled for speculations.
If, during the coal famine, the mines
wero not being worked to their full capacity, because the railroads could not
or would not haul away the output from
the breakers, the famine should be
blamed upon the railroads. If for lack
of equipment, or trackage facilities, Ihe
railroads were unable or unwilling lo
transport coal. It is the railroads' fault
a coal famine could exist.
If, however, the famine waB caused
by unscrupulous operators wbo only
worked their mines al half shift In the
autumn when they could and should
have worked full time to supply orders
they already had on hand���as was
many in-J.inc'.- th*. ease���then it ��a:i
the pint aud nebcinn of a hand of pi-
lutes more to be 6w\ilnetl than the
gagging cat or sniffing dog that races
through back alleys.
Any mam, or set of m-en, who would
plan and machinate to make an unusual
and unwarranted profit by contracting
thc supply of a necessity, thereby
causing pain, suffering, sickness and
death, should not only be put out of
business, but driven from Ihe earth.
Their names should be forgotten and
their nosseaaions should be stripped
from them.
The fair name and reputation of the
West has been sullied by the coal famine. The liberality and free hand of
Ihe WobI has been stained by the
blighting touch of thc miser. May
laws be passed to blot out. forever the
possibility of bucIi an occurence again.

selves to audiences bere at Sherman's
opera house Monday and Tuesday next,
Is somewhat of a mystifying character,
and the various comments upon their
peculiar title are invariably followed
by such enquiries: "Is it a musical comedy?" "Is It a burlesque ?" "It is a concert party?" "lt is a melodrama?" "Are
ihey conjurors?" "What are they?"
That ls the mystery. This excellent
company secured an immense success
In London. It consists of two tenors,
a baritone, a bass, two very funny and
first clans comedians, a lightning art-
humorist and a pianist, who for some
years have heen delighting English audiences by providing a very bright, romantic, musical and artistic entertainment, full of fun and genuine humor
and sentiment, but at th csamc tlmo
quite free from vulgarity.

their plunder at a ridiculously low
