checks. When searched at the polic

Nelson Man Will Operate
Silver King
Instructions Cabled For  Immediate
Employment of Force of Men
On Old Property.
Word has been received ln Nelson today by a cable from London that a long
lease of the Silver King mine ou Toad
.Mountain to M. S. Davys has been
signed by the Hall Mining aud Smelting  company.
Mr. Davys has cabled instructions for
the immediate employment oi a force of
men and the beginning of operations in
tbe mine.
Until his arrival here Mr. Davys will
be represented ln Nelson by R. S. Lennle who is solicitor for the Hall Mining
and   .Smelting   compauy.
Mr. Davys' faith in the oiu Silver
King is well known in Nelson. His last
lease of it was profitable tu himself and
lo tlie company, but it was a definitely
limited period. His application for a
new lease and bond Is a striking indication of bis belief In tlie value of tbe
property, a belief that may be presumed to rest on knowledge acquired during the operation of his short lease.
The operation of the Silver King on
a large scale will probably be followed,
though it is not mentioned iu the cables,
by tbe reopening of the smelter. Wbut

Neither in public nor in private have
the Liberals any defence to offer for
the application to British Columbia of
the provision in the Aylesworth Elections Amendment Act, for the rejection
of the provincial lists and the substitution therefor of lists specially prepared, between the issue of writs and
polling day, by special officials, with
unlimited powers, and from whose decision  there  Is   no appeal.
While it is contended that there ls no
dishonest purpose and thai no harm
will be done, it is admitted that no good
can be done and that the step is utterly unnecessary.
But, If they have no defence as lo
this province, they assert quite run
fidently lhat there is every Justification
for the change in Manitoba. It is positively remarkable how thorough a
knowledge of conditions in the prairie
juovince is possessed, for controversial purposes, by every Liberal in Nelson���all the more remarkable Blnce
such knowledge has certainly not been
derived from anything published In
press despatches to Nelson nor in the
press   of   Manitoba.
There are three Influential papers
published in Winnipeg, The Telegram,
Conservative, the Free Press, Liberal,
nnd the Tribune, Independent. The
Telegram and Free l'ress are fairly
thorough going In support of their respective parties. The testimony of
either would probably not convince any
Opponent or  neutral.    The  Tribune  is
owned and edited by K. L. Richardson,
ez-M. P., whose genuine independence
is admitted hy all who know him. The
Tribune opposes both the Dominion
Liberal, and .Manitoba Conservative
Ot the application to Manitoba of
the proposed amendment the Tribune
in connection with the controversy
over ihe preparation of ihe voters
lists iu Manitoba the Free Press submits a number of instances where a
hardship waa perpetrated agaiusi ihe
Libeiais b> partisan registration oili-

"So far as this journal is concerned it
will not stand for anything less than a

We trust that those who have lgnor-

the deliberate manufacturers of such
falsehoods, of course we expect nothing.
That Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman
should retire was expected by all. The
pos.tion ol prime minister of the United
Kingdom and practically ruler of the
British Empire is almost too much tor
auy man. Twice iu bis carewr Mr. Gladstone combined with it the chaucwllor-
ship of the exchequer, and twice tbe
great Lord Salisbury performed the
Herculean duties of premier and foreign
secretary. But probably such attempts
will never be made agaiu. Britain has
taken heavy toll of her statesmen In
sacrifice of ease, health and even of life.
The strain of his work, and the crushing shock of his wife's death have destroyed the vitality of Sir Henry Camp-
bell-Baiiiurmau. He retires from the
greatest post any man can ever hold,
with no great achievement to his credit,
but with an unsullied name, with the
personal esteem and warm affection of
all his political friends and foes. It is
to the eternal honor of British politicians of both sides that as soon as
Sir Henry's illness was known to be
serious all controversy was hushed, and,
next to the king, the most frequent Inquirer for the health of the Illustrious
sufferer was his great opponent, Mr.

. A. E. WattC, of Wattsburg, the well
known lumberman contributes an article on forest conservation to the Cranbrook  Herald as follows:
"Eleven years since not a sawmill
was in operation between the prairies
and Kootenay lake. Six years ago the
production of lumber in the Interior of
U. C. was under 2o millions per an
num. The year before last we shipped
25U millions, an increase of ten fold in
five years and the greater part of that
expansion took place during the last
three years. Also note that there was
but one transcontinental railway with
its branches undeveloped. In the near
future we shall have three rallrouds across the continent. Therefore, it is
reasonable to expect that the demand
for lumber and other products will increase in greater ratio in the Immediate future than during the past five
years.    1 predict that It will.
���*The lumbermen of British Columbia
possess an asset that will be worth
more than the capital of all the banks
in Canada. It is the last great virgin
forest on the continent, and within
a few years the United States will open
her doors free io Canadian lumber.
Wheu she does the timber will at one
leap double its value on the stump.
it is an interesting fact that notwithstanding the enormous increase in tbe
population of the United States, and
the increasing use of iron, steel, stone,
cement and bricks in the place of wood,
that during the last lew years the consumption of timber per capita has increased ten per cent. Many of the
states are already completely denuded
of timber. Very shortly they simply
must take Canadian lumber, therefore,
it is the height of folly for mill men
to tumble head and heels over each
other in an attempt to give their valuable and costly stocks away at cost
or less; if the market Is temporarily
gorged, limit production, hold your
stock even if your banker does tell you
to cut your ten dollar logs into ties
that produce $7.50 per thousand because the bank must, have the cash to
pay for the palatial offices and residence, built for the accommodation of
his majesty the banker. In that way
are legitimate industries strangled in
their birth.
Ten years since all along the Crow's
Nest line was virgin forest. Today all
the most accessible timber is cut off,
all timber suitable for good ties within
resaonable reach has gone, and no attempt has been made at reforestation,   ln

a few years Canada will have ten thousand miles of railway, and ties need replacing every six or seven years, aud
if they use spruce, as the G. T. P. is
doing, they will need replacing every
four years. Now is the time to plant
trees to meet the enormous demand of
the future.
"Some of the American railway companies have already planted large quantities for that purpose. I have had
some correspondence with the president of one road and he kindly sent
me seed with instructions how to cultivate the catalpa speciosa, a tree thai
will make a growth ln five years large
enough for ties. I shall be pleased to
furnish information to persons who may
be Interested in this subject.
"The government should encourage
reforestation and might olfer a suiai,
bonus to any person planting trees. In
the case where license holders hav.
cut over their limits, they might be al
lowed to hold the land In perpetuity on
the conditions that trees were planted
in proportion to those cut off. This
would insure a permanent income to
the government from crown dues, and
preserve the forest wealth, a matter of
vital importance to the country in many
ways. The decay of ancient mighty
nations can be traced as owing to their
Tuke notice that we will at the next
meeting of the License Commissioners
apply lor a transfer of the liquor 11-
ceuse for tho No Place Inn on Josephine street, Nelson, from Pollard and
Wade to II. H. Moore.

Declines Japanese Advice.
Pekin, April 7.���The Chinese foreign
board has rejected the proposals made
by Japan with regard to reciprocal arrangement in Manchuria on the ground
that such an arrangement would contravene Chinese foreign rights. Japan
presented a plan which sought to have
China recognize in its postal routes the
telegraph stations outside of the railroad zone. The government consul also has instructed the department of
posts to be governed by the China-Japanese convention of 1903 authorizing
that only Chinese mails shall be carried on Imperial railways.
