Fifty Cbnts a  month
Compared With Mexico
by F. L. Hammond
Presiden   * Kootenay Orchard Association Gi     interesting Summary
of Visit and Observations.
F. L. I la nun,,ml returned last evening from a trip of two months in Mexico. In the course of a conversation
with a representative of The Daily
Canadian he said:
"Mexico is an Interesting country for
the tourist, uud affords many contrasts
tu Canada and the United .stales. The
cities, iu which ull the on tidings are ot
old Spuuisu architecture, are beautiful,
aud they contain plazas, or parks where
ol au evening the population promenades to the accompaniment of music
luruished by really good military bands.
The Mexican himself is most picturesque, attired as he is in a sombrero
three feet or more in diameter and
two feet high, a red blanket wrapped
about him lo keep off the chill which
lie experiences whenever the thermometer tails below TU degrees, and his
lower half terminating iu u very tight
pair of embroidered trousers uud a pair
of attenuated shoes or sandals.
"There are many foreigners ln Mexico, citizens of the United States predominating in number; there are also
a large number of English there and
also some French aud Germans. The
bank of Montreal does un ���extensive
business ln "The Republic," as all the
Mexicans call their country, aujd has an
Imposing marble hauk building adjoining the post ofllce and facing the main
plaza in tiie city of Mexico.
"Canadian capital owns ihe Mexico
Light and Power company, a large and
profitable corporation which furnishes
light and power to the City of Mexico
and suburbs. The country is rapidly-
developing under the excellent administration of President Diaz, but 1 do not
think it affords as good an opportunity
for either capital or labor as Western
".Mexico Is an older country and the
resources have been exploited for a
long time. Mining bas beeu conducted
for hundreds of years. The forests of
rosewood and mahogany were cut down
and the wood exported 50 years ago by
the Germans. With but a fraction of
tlie area of Western Canada and with
a population live limes as great, the
bulk of the good land is alread cultivated. In parts of Western Canada the
cold is excessive, but in Mexico the continuous heat is very enervating. In
Llritish Columbia we have rather more
rain or snow than we want, but in
Mexico the dust Is omnipresent and In
the greater part of the country the rainfall is Insufficient.
"There is a great deal of foreign capital looking for Investment in Mexico,
and practically every natural resource
of the country Is In process of development. Heuces there ls little opportunity for capital to Invest to advantage.
On the other hand tile country affords
no opening for lobor since there Is a
stiplus of native peon workers who get
from IS to -5 cents per duy, and who.
being accustomed to the climate, are
able to enduru the heat.
"As Ihe possible location fo a home.
Western Canada, and especially British
Columbia, Is Infinitely superior. On account of the heat and dust and alien
customs nnd lunguuge the Canadian.
American or Emrlishman resident In
.Mexico almost never makes his permanent, home there but loaves as soon as
he has a competence and returns to his
native land.
"In general, what one sees In Mexico
and in tho states lying between Canada
and Mexico confirms and strengthens
ones belief in the future of Western
Canada and especially British Columbia. Here we have Immense natural
resources In the way of mines, {timber.
and land, as yet almost untouched. A
country where one can work without
becoming exhausted hy the heat, and
where on*1 can make a home in which
one would enjoy remaining. If the
capitalists "Snd Investors now Investing
their money ln California and Mexico,
with tlie prospect of but a small return.
could be made to realize the Immense
natural resources of British Columbia
we would have an InHux of capital here
which would enable the country to advance by leaps and bounds. And If the
Kimlli.li, and Americans from the Eastern States, who are moving Into California, TeXscs and Mexico knew the superior conditions here there ls no question but whut there would be a rapid
settlement of Biiiish Columbia. But
whether this development and settlement of British Columbia proceeds
slowly or rapidly oue realizes that the
world ls growing very small commercially und that it is but a question of
time when the advantages of Western
Canada for tbe capitalists as well as
for the man who wishes to make a
home will  become generally known."

Sir John's Barber Dead.
Kingston. March 25���James Johnston,
colored barber, 75 years old, was found
dead In .bed this morning. His shop
was the headquarters In early days for
Conservatives and In It Sir John Macdonald, Sir Alexander Campbell und
many leading Conservatives had their
tonsorlal needs looked after.
The circumstances In and by reason
of which the operation of the Hall
Mines smelter was suspended in November last, and the present position
of the company, are revealed in a report issued iu London on March 12th
by two of the directors, Lord Ernest
Hamilton, chairman, aud George Free-
The report Is full and perfectly clear,
but it omits a few details that may be
of local Interest.
When the situation developed which
led to the resignation of R. R. Hedley,
manager of the smelter, he wished to
let the whole of the circumstances become known, and publicly acknowledge
that the failure was his aloue. He was
prevailed upon not to do so.
J. J. Campbell, who had been till then
resident manager of the company, a
position not superior to, but parallel
with, that of Mr. Hedley, was then
urgently requested to fulfill the duties
of both positions. He accepted the
burden, secured the services of S. G.
Blaylock, and began a determined effort to save the situation. But misfortunes came fast. Coincident with the
discovery of a grave error in the estimate of values���and the discovery
showed the company to be 151,000
worse off than had been believed���came
the collapse of the money market, aud
all negotiations for lease or sale of any
assets stopped perforce.
The total loss for the last 18 months
of operation amounted to ��24,171, 16s.,
2d., which Is equal to $117,635.35.
As to what is to be the future disposition of the property no one locally
has any definite information that is not
at least suggested in the report, which
is as follows:
At the last annual general meeting,
shareholders were informed that It had
been decided to adopt the Huntingdon-
Heberlein process. The new plant
was finally completed, and operations
commenced on the accumulated lead
ores in ovember, 1906. The result of
the first month's operations was most
disappointing, the cost of working being about %2 per ton ln excess of that
under the old conditions. Iu Decmeber
the Smelter manager, Mr. R. R. Hedley, having entirely failed to justify his
estimates of working costs tendered his
resignation,  which  was  accepted.
The Huntlngdon.Heberlein process
having been a success at other smelters
ln the same district, and considerable
stocks of ore remaining to be treated,
the services df Mr. Blaylock, who was
familiar with the new process, were
secured. The costs were at once reduced by about $4 per ton, trut as the
accumulated ores were being gradually worked up, H became evident that
a grave error had been made by the
late smelter manager In largely overestimating the metallurgical contents,
the values and quantities of the stock
on hand.. Subsequent enquiries showed that the furnaces had been fed
with far larger charges of ore than had
been   reported.
The board had relied upon tbe figures
supplied by Mr. Hedley, more especially as the company's bankers had made
large advances on the strength of them.
When these circumstances were disclosed all further advances by the bank
were stopped, and instructions were
given by the board to treat and sell
every available ton of ore, so that the
actual amount of the deficit might be
ascertained. Seeing that without further advances from the bank It was Impossible for the company to carry on
smelting operations, negotiations were
opened and were progressing favorably for leasing the suieiter. when the
financial crisis In America, the influence of which extended to Canada, put
an  end  to any dealings of the kind.
The realization of all metallurgical
material was proceeded with as rapidly
as possible, but, chiefly owing to Insufficient roasting power, It was not un-
I   a'
til October tbat tbe work was completed; meantime the continued fall ln metals had materially Increased lhe company's   losses.
The "Silver King" mine, under the
arrangement of Mr. M. S. Davys, yielded a protu of 117,382 to 3,1st December,
lt*06, when tbe agreement was ended
by mutual consent; the company continued mining operations on its own
account and, up to the 30th June, 1907,
realized a profit of $\2,2:n;. The mine
manager estimated that about 300 tons
of good ore could be relied upon monthly if a certain amount of development
were undertaken, and this was done,
with the result that shipments were resumed in the month of September, and
the manager was Instructed to continue shipping so long as there was a margin or profit. Several adverse circumstances occurred about this time,
amongst other which could not have
been foreseen, tbe Trail smelter raised
Its rate tor treating Silver King ores,
the price of metals still further declined, and the crude ore fell off In quality. In November, the manager reported an excess of liabilities, chiefly wages, over assets ot $10,000, and he was
at once Instructed to suspend all further operations. The board having
funds to meet this liability, called
meeting of tbe debenture holders with
a view to obtaining their sanction to
the issue oi   ��4,000 prior lien bonds.
Had the resolution sanctioning this
proposal been passed at the meeting,
sufficient funds would have been provided to pay out the Miners' Liens
for Wages, to meet the interest on
the debentures up to the end of September, and to provide a sum necessary for upkeep, pending an agreement
in process of arrangement, for leasing
the mine on tribute with ah option
of purchase, ln which the shareholders
would have have had an opportunity
to  take part.
Time, during which the financial depression in America and Canada might
reasonably be expected to pass away,
would have been given to enable the
company to deal on more favorable
terms for the disposal by sale or lease
of  its  smelting  property.
Tbe debenture holders not having
seen fit to meet the view of the board
and Liens for Wages have been placed upon the mine, the only alternative has been for tbe trustees to act
and to take possession of the properties.
Subject to the approval of the debenture trustees, negotiations are pending to lease tbe mine and smelter, with
the option of purchase, on terms that
It ls hoped may conserve the shareholders' Interest in the property.
Twelve   year  Old    Girl    Missing   From
Home in  Fairview Since
Yesterday Morning.
Mary Middleton, a girl of twelve
years of age, living close to the General Hospital, disappeared yesterday
morning about 10 o'clock, since which
time no tiace of her can be found. The
parents of tbe girl are living in Scotland and she has been living with ber
gradmother, but the neighbors are not
able to give much information about
her. The last seen of her was yesterday morning at the time mentioned.
She was then gathering sticks in the
woods skirting the old burying ground.
The strange phase of the story Is that
although she had been missing all night
the authorities were only notified as to
her absence this morning.
When the announcement that she was
missing came to tbe attention of the
citizens, several parties started In
search of her. Several members of the
fire brigade and one ot the city police
officers were among those who joined
in the search. The hill back of tbe
hospital was climbed by the searching
party and every conceivable place
where she could be secreted was visited. Late this afternoon several members of the searching party returned,
but without hearing anything that
would help to solve the mysterious
disappearance. At the time of writing
there are still a number of citizens out.
but with what success remains to be
There are many theories with regard
to the missing girl, but the one most
generally believed is that she left home
in a pique and is now hiding fearing
tlie ridicule of her relatives. If she
has been hiding in the house of any of
the neighbors it is believed that the
circumstance would have been known
by  this time.

Oliver Has New Scheme
for Hindus
Suggested Remedy for Failure of Order ia Council���Busy Bay in Senate���Progress in Parliament.
Ottawa, March 26.���Oliver gives notice of an amendment to the immigration act which will give statutory form
to regulations promulgated some weeks
ago for the purpose of prohibiting admission Into Canada of Immigrants who
did not possess through tickets from
the country of their birth or adoption.
This will be a statutory offset to the
decision of Justice Clement in a British
Columbia court yesterday which released Hindoos on the ground that the
regulations under which they were detained did not come within the authority of the existing immigration law.
There may be more provisions added
to the amendment. Steamship companies have pointed out to the government that regulations forcing immigrants to be possessed of |2e ln money
in addition to tickets to Intended destination goes beyond the immigration act
and this matter is now under consider.

Miss Munro, a clerk ln the land commissioner's office, was before the commons public accounts committee today
in connection with western timber land
tenders. She said that tenders came
In to the office and were immediately
placed in a sat* and kept there, until
they came to open them. 'She was always present ln tbe land commissioner's room when tenders were opened.
She never saw anything In the land
commissioner's conduct of his business
to arouse her suspicions.
J. G. Turiff, former land commissioner, now M. P. for East Assiniboia, was
called and gave categorical denials to
all charges of improper conduct while
land commissioner. He said be was a
party man but in his official career or
six years he never allowed partylsm to
make him unfair to friends or opponents. Regarding the notice given to
the public in bidding for the timber
lands ln question Turlff said the department had merely followed the practice
which had existed. In regard to opening of tenders Turriff declared that if
he had known as much as did now he
would have had two or three officials
present at these ceremonies and would
thereby have saved himself from aspersions that were now being made
against his conduct. Tenders had always been opened in the presence of
his secretary.

Donald, British Columbia, gave notice

Yesterday's despatch announcing the
death of the Duke of Devonshire will be
matter for regret to all Uritons who
are Interested in the affairs of the home
The Duke's political career began In
1857 when, as Marquis of Hartington
and heir to the first Whig title and estate, he was elected to the commons
for North Lancashire. He became a
Lord of the Admiralty ln Lord Pal-
merston's last cabinet in 1803, and was
Jn every succeeding Liberal cabinet
until 1885. When Mr. Gladstone retired from public life after the decisive
Conservative victory of 1874 it was
Lord Hartington that led the Liberal
opposition, but on their return Io power ln 1880 Gladstone emerged from his
ttecluslon. Hartington was a loyal supporter of his old chief until the Introduction of the first Home Rule bill.
He led the revolt tbat established the
Liberal Unionist party, in 181)5 he
became Lord President of the Council,
ln Salisbury's third cabinet, and remained in that office until 1903 when
he resigned as a protest against tbe
Protectionist opinions of some of his
colleagues. On the death of his father
In 1891 he passed from the Commons
to the House of Lords.
The Duke of Devonshire has held a
unique position ln British public life.
His rank and wealth from the beginning made him independent of office,
and bis character and temperament
confirmed   him   In   that   attitude.    He
Supported a party only while its principles and purposes were his own.
He could never compromise. He had
to be a whole hearted supporter or an
opponent. It was his absolute integrity, his extreme slowness in changing opinions and his willingness, when
necessary, to stand utterly alone, that
made him in many respects the most
trusted of llritish statesmen, and his
utterances were always certain of deferential attention and consideration.
While he has not been in active
political life for the last five years his
death will leave a gap in the front
rank of llritish public men.
The commission appointed to inquire
Into tbe causes of the collapse of
the Quebec bridge has reported to parliament that the disaster was due lo
faulty design, that the bridge was
bound sooner or later to collapse, and
that there was no official on the ground
with authority lo cull the working force
The various engineers may be left to
settle the professional disputes growing out of the case. Hut the Dominlop
government will have some questions
to answer.
The Quebec bridge was to have been
an Important link ln the National
Transcontinental Railway. It might
very properly have been built as a government work under supervision by
government engineers. Hut that Is not
the favorite course at Ottawa these
days. That would afford no opportunity for friends of the government to
make anything, so the Quebec Bridge
Company was fonned to construct the
bridge, the government guaranteeing
its bonds. It has transpired now that
tho company had practically no capital,
that al) that has been spent so far
has been borrowed from the Bank of
Montreal on the credit of the government of Canuda, and that Ihe Dominion treasury will now have to meet all
claims for damages ana aleo find the
money for reconstruction.
But ln spite of these facts the government exercised absolutely no control or supervision over the work. A
company that stood to lose nothing was
allowed an absolutely free bund in the
management of a work for which the
government was to pay. It ls not likely
that $10,000,000 will cover the total amount of the material loss to tbe country, and yet it was not thought worth
while to have anyone to represent the
government   or    watch   the   operations.
Apparently many men connected with
the work knew that the design was
faulty and expected a collapse, but
Biieh was the organization of the work
that no one had any authority to interfere, the responsible engineer was
absent, and over 80 lives and millions
of dollars worth of property were destroyed.
The real cause of the disaster was
the reckless method of managing the
work, aud that in turn was due to the
fact that It wus not private but only
public money that was at stake, and
the guardians of the public money didn't care enough to even make a pretence of seeing how  it was spent.

called the KirkerBender, has been used
with great success In several cities. At
the Carlton school, it will be erected In
such a manner that entrance can be
made to It from windows of each of the
two rooms on the second and third
floors. The slide has a sufficient number of coils to regulate the speed with
which the children descend. The cost
of the escape Is of course very much
more than that of ordinary escapes,
and It ls stated that the one to be erected at the Carlton school will cost between $1,600 and $2,000. If It proves a
quick and safe method of emptying the
school, similar escapes will it Is under-
stood, be placed at all the schools.
