Negotiations are being carried
on with the other mining companies of the camp which have been
effected by the strike but they are
not yet completed.
Working men in outside camps
are advised to keep away from
RoBsland for the present,
as there are more union

"Granby" the residence of VV.
J. Lascelles had a narrow escape
from destruction by fire yesterday
morning. Owing to the high wind
prevailing at the time, shaking the
very foundation of the building,
Bhe stove pipe in the dining room
became disjointed, with the result
that flames immediately issued
therefrom. Mr. Lascelles, Chinaman, Pingpong, at once informed
his master, who was in thegroundg
enjoying his morning stroll, and
lie immediately started to inform
the lire brigade. Juat outside
his premises, however, he was fortunate in meeting a few of his
friends, who at once gave him the
neceaBary assistance to extinguish
what by this time looked like becoming a serious conflagration.
Unfortunately a valuable "Rembrandt" Mr. Lascelles favorite picture waB slightly scorched, as was
the carpet and his Chippendale
sideboard. It is understood that
the loss with the exception of the
painting, is more than covered by
insurance.

We are glad to be able to state,
says the Greenwood Times, that
the report that the Greenwood
curlers defeated the Phoenix team
in the return match last Tuesday,
is utterly without foundation. The
boys wouldn't do such a thing.
Tho luxury of living in the valley
where the ice season is so short, and
the season of grasses and flowers so
long, unfits the Greenwood men for
competition with the boys of the
hills who have ice to practice, on
the year round. To be brief as
gentlemen they wouldn't if they
could, as curlers they couldn't if
they would.

While the exports to China, during (hn period from 1 St) 1 to 1001,
says the Chicago Record Herald, ol
which we hear bo much, have advanced from eight millions to
eighteen millions, the exports from
ihe United Kingdom have increased from $482,205,70G to $598,766,-
799. The Chinese percentage of
increase is large, but it is reckoned
on a relatively Bmall figure, which
diminishes its importance very
much. On the other hand, the absolute British increase is more than
six times the total exports to China
last year and larger than the total
exports to that country for the
eleven years.
CENTRE STAR
SHIPMENTS
May Commence at Onee-
No Statement as to
the Extent.
Four cars went up the hill this
morning and four carB will probably go down the hill to Trail this
evening. This means the Centre
Star iB about to ship. How long
thoBe shipments will be kept up is
more than problematical. The
utterances of Blackstock at Toronto
only mean this that the Centre
Star and War Eagle people feel
confident of winning '.out on the
water rightB suit, or at all events of
getting an interim right. This
being Ihe case it is the declared
intention of the companies to erect
a mill and concentrating plant.
This will be in the immediate vicinity of Ibis city.
Further it is self evident that the
mines concerned are not desirous
of shipping one pound of ore more
than is absolutely necessary for lhe
sake of finance, for the sake of com
pleting the old contract, if still held
to it, or for the sake of clearing out
of the road the stores of stoped out
ore now blocking the way of deval-
ment.

TWO MORE
ACCIDENTS
J. Freeman and  P. May-
hew Were Hurt at the
Le Roi Mine
Two more accidents have occurred at the Le Roi mine, one on
Saturday last and one today. In
the first incident Peter Mayhew
received some Blight injuries in
falling from a staging on which
he was working. The fall was
some 20 feet but luckily any serious mishap did not occur.
The other accident occured this
morning to a shaftman the particulars of which had not reached
the Would up to the time ol its
going to press. It is not supposed
that the injuries are serious as the
sufferer, Joseph Freeman, was taken to his house and not sent to the
hospital. These make four accidents within a week.

DRASTIC REVItW OF PROPERTY pas nothing to do with the ex-
penses of the Kootenay mines
which involve a far different state
of affairs. The great bulk of lhe
Kootenay mines ore, for example,
will not have to be hoisted at a
great expense. The smelter need
not necessarily be that of North-
port. The ore is not of the same
character and under certain conditions can be smelted far more
cheaply. It is probable that even
iff) rock of this mine will hereafter
be found to be profitable.

"The first annual report of tbe
Kootenay Mining company, sayB
lhe B. C. Review, is as unsatisfactory as that of its sister company, the Rossland Great Western.
In this case also promise and per
formance are widely different, and
under the present regime the outlook before the shareholders is
without any hopeful indications.
The prospectus, quoting Mr. Carlyle, the former manager of the B.
A.  C.   properties talked   glibly of -,     ,        ,. *._.._-,
assays of 8 oZs. in gold per ton- Explanation of the Cease-
general samples of 34 ozs., and
.veins 28 and 30 feet in width.
The directors drew attention in the
prospectus to the "large tonnage"
availablejfor shipment, and "anticipate satisfactory dividends" and
did not omit to refer to the shares
of the other Rossland companies
issued under the same auspices
which "all stand at substantial
premiums."
Now that the public has been enlightened as to the meanB employed
to put these shares at "substantial
premiums" they must be as -much
amused at the audacity of their
directors, as they are disgusted
with their incompetency. Over a
year has elapsed since the appearance of the prospectus, which led
one to expect ore shipments and
dividends, and yet not a tan of oro
has been shipped from a property
f r which the public paid /,'350,-
000. In their report the directors
state that they have come to the
conclusion that the property is
"not yet in a remunerative condition," but having regard to certain surmises opine that "there is a
fair prospect of your mine before
long becoming a payable property."
They should have satisfied themselves on this point before issuing
a prospectus to the public asking I
for ,£400,000.
One of the most   amazing statements in the report is that made by '
Mr.    Bernard     Macdonald,    who
points out that the coBt of mining
and smelting at the Le Roi in Jan-1the vltal Point in
The continued thaw of the past
few weeks has had one good result
and that is that the water pipes
frozen up all over the city have
become thawed out and many are
now in good working condition.
It seems on the talking over of
the water system by the city it
was the practice to lay the pipes at
a depth of not more than 18 inches to a couple of feet below the
surface. Consequently freezing
has been frequent. The newer
pipes have all been laid, with the
exception of those instances where
the grade would hereafter be altered, at an average depth of four
and a half feet. Curiously enough
even in such cases with the smaller
pipes the water mains have been
frozen. ThiB however has only
happened where there has been
much traffic over the pipe, as at a
crossing. The consolidation of the
ground and packing of the snow
resulting from the traffic haB in
these places, destroyed the air
particles existing in loose snow or
earth. To obviate this difficulty
the water department is placing
manure at these places next the
pipe. This, it is thought, will
have the desired effect since the
rotting of the manure in time will
still leave an air cushion which is

PEACE WITH  HONOR.
The Mineowners' Association are
said to be dead against tlie recognition of the union. Therefore, it
is argued triumphantly, it will be
a long day before the recognition
of labor implied in tins comes to
pass. Argued ethically it is just
as absurd for a mine manager to
refuse to Treat with thc union as it
is for a big contractor to refuse to
treat with the directorate of a company and declare that he wants to
make his bargain with the shareholders individually. It is not
practical for him to do so, of course,
but one would have thought that
the lessons of experience would
have shewn the mine manager il is
not practical either for him to ignore the unions. Whenever he
tries that game he gets into trouble.
Common sense should show him
that a band of men have as much
right to join together to supply the
labor for the mine as to supply the
capital. The law recognizes the
one and tlie Taff Vale decision, at
first thought to be contrary to the
interests of labor, now seems to recognize the other. Any doubt upon
that matter will probably be clea'r-
ed up at the present session of the
imperial parliament. Formerly it
was said that as the union was not
an entity there was no treating
with it, as it could not be held responsible. If the Taff Valo case is
to be upheld it will be seen that
the last prop under this argument
is knocked out. The fact that the
mineowners of the north of England and west of Scotland had
managed to make arrangements
with their men through their
unions which the experience of
years have shewn to be faithfully
kept, ought to have convinced these
kind of arguers that they were
talking poppycock.)
Besides what is this Mineowners'
Association that it would dictate
terms to the province? New-
Zealand showed that capital is not
frightened away from a country by
the keeping of the capitalists in
their place. This country is not as
yet an oligarchy. It is a free coun-
try, or is generally supposed to be
Buch. The majority' should rule,
anp in a very short time they will
rule. An example will lie shown
in this city in the course of a
twelve month, and the province
will not be long behind. When it
comes to a matter of ruling the
country should not be governed
by labor any more than it should
be exclusively by capital, but if a
choice has to be made between the
two the choice sooner or later will
be made in favor of labor. And
rightly so. Labor has the majority.
The Mineowners' Association had
better climb down oil its perch
gracefully while there yet remains
time. The position it is said lo
maintain is untenable. The march
of events all over the Empire from
England to New Zealand, to New
South Wales, to Natal to Quebec
and Ontario will surely cover British Columbia. The United Slates
has taken the opposite view. So
much the worse for that country.
This is why her best citizens today
are coming over the line. When
men are struggling for a principle,
it is not a question of dollars or
self-interest. The immediate self-
interest of the men in Rossland
was to remain at work and earn
big wages, but there was a principle at slake. I hat principle will
infallibly win out today, tomorrow
next yoar or next generation. The
men of thiH province are no degen
erate sons of the race that has
girdled the world despite the efforts
to curb their freemen's limbs with
thi' trammels represented by the
offscourings of the Orient. Why
should thiB province form the one
dark blot upon the civilization of
tho meteor Hag?
To those who think that there is
nothing else to be weighed in the
balances besides the almighty dollar it may be said that there can
be no real peace until this question
is settled. It will crop up again
and again. A look into the past
will infallibly show the forecast of
lhe future. When that question is
settled then and not till then will
capital flow in as freely here as it
does in "labor ridden" Australasia.   Conditions   must  be settled.
But peace with honor is all that
is asked.
MINERAL TAN.
The trouble with the mineral
tax resolution passed at the Kaslo
convention of the associated
boards of trade of the Kootenays
is that it is not sufficiently ex
plicit as to how the act as altered
dhould work and that it lays far
too great a stress upon an alteration in the taxing of crown grants
to a lax upon that value less the
total charges.
Dealing with the first part of
the objection tho resolution of
the Kaslo convention would change
the present tax from a tax upon
the value of the ore less the cost
of freight and smelting charges.
In other words a tax upon the net
profit less certain expenditures
incurred outside of the province.
This seems good and will cer
lainly do away with the unjust
incidence of taxation but it remains to be seen whether the companies concerned are willing to
throw open their books to a government audit to see what that
profit is, It is here lhat the hitch
will come and we suspect that the
companies would grenllv prefer a
lax upon the metallic value cf ,l_e
ore, deducting nothing. This
would also have tho effect of not
unduly handicapping the low
grade mines. The Rossland board
of trade, as representing the chief
camp in the Kootenays ought to
to reconsider this matter and add
a rider to the Kaslo resolution
marking in what manner the proposition could be carried into elect.
As for the second part of the
resolution it is almost altogether
bad. The chief burden of the
proposed taxation would fall upon
the prospector and thus tax the
very man upon whom depends the
future locating of many a great
mine as yet unheard of. At the
same time the companies whicb
are able to afford taxation are to
escape just in the proportion that
the lowly prospector is mulcted.
Verily, to him that hath much shall
be given.
But there is a source of revenue
that is overlooked and that is those
crown granted properties which
are lying idle year after year.
The crown granting of properties
is facile in this province. It is
perhaps the most liberal in this respect of any province in the British dominions. But British Columbia is rather noted for being
liberal with the property of its
people. Crown granting might be
slill carried out, though Australia
seems to get along very well without it, hut thereshouldbealimitset
lo the time when a crown granted
mining properly should be allowed to remain idle. While safeguarding lhe prospectot, so as to
give him ample time to work hie
property cither personally or by
means of capital lhat he haB the
lime und opportunity to interest,
it would be well to put an increasing tax upon all properties that
are lying idle, after some fixed
limit of time. In Australia a
cerlain amount of work, must be
done yearly on each property and
it seems to work no hardship on
either tbe companies or the prospectors. Many a good piece property is lying idle in Rossland district today merely because it suits
the selii.-h interests  of some stock

GREAT WESTERN
Apparent Loss in Working
of Mine.
SCANDALOUS STORE PROFITS
Effect of the Fall in Copper Upon
the Property—Outlook is
Bright.
The report recently issued by the
" Rossland   Great  VVeBtern   Company," says the B. C. Review of
London, "to be   presented at  the
forthcoming general meeting will be
regarded by the shareholders as a
most unsatisfactory document. This
is one of the companies which we
owe to the fertile   brain   of   Mr.
Whitaker Wright,  who sold to the
public a group of mineral properties for £450,000 in cash, which
after a year'B further development
possesses ore reserves which are estimated by the company's manager
to be worth £27,000 net.   We draw
attention in another column to the
grave disparity between the anticipations held out in the prospectus
and the actual   results   achieved,
and shareholders will no doubt ask
for a full explanation   from  Mr.
Sinclair Macleay  and his co directors on Monday.     The hiBtory of
this  undertaking can be summed
up in  two words : misrepresentation   and   mismanagement.      We
must confess our surprise that Mr.
Sinclair  Macleay  has not already
seen fit to retire from the direction
of this company, but that his presence on the board  has been detrimental  lo the shareholders' interests in the past, and that it is quite
unlikely to prove of any benefit in
the future has been plainly shown
by his own admissions when under
examination recently in the case of
tho British   America Corporation.
When   examined   by   Mr.   Rufus
Isaacs on behalf of the Official Assignee of the Stock Exchange, he
declared   that   he   knew   nothing
whatever about the purchase made
by the  British   America Corporation of shares in the Kootenay and
RoBsland   companies   which commenced in July and continued until October, 1900, and yet this man
who was the director of the parent
company in addressing the shareholders at the statutory meeting of
one of its subsidiaries, the Rossland
Great Western, on  October   25th
said :    " I congratulate you on the
price  which your Bhares stand in
the market, which is an advance of
the estimation in which your property is held in the mining world."
—At  that  moment  the   price of
these shares was entirely due to a
rig which was being engineered by
one of his co-directors, of which he
ought to have been fully aware. At
the same meeting he was asked by
one of the shareholders " Can you
give ub some idea in justification of
the shares standing at the price of
,£9 in  the market at the present
time ?"   He replied, " that is not
my matter, I think they are worth
a great deal more myself."   In the
face of these statements the most
charitable view to take iB that Mr.
Macleay was as much in ignorance
of the affairs of the Rossland Great
Western, of which he is chairman,
as he was, according to his own
statement, of   the   affairs  of   the
British America Corporation.   The
shareholders should not have much
difficulty in deciding whether it is
in their interests that a clean sweep
should be made of  the board  and
personnel of this company.
The accounts of the company
show that while ore waB sold to the
value of £10,412 the expenditure
amounted to ,£11,587, and the operations have therefore been carried
on at an actual loss, although a
profit is shown on the balance-sheet
due to the purchase of stores, atless
than cost, from the 11. A. C. on its
liquidation, but even thiB profit, as
the auditors point out, is subject to
a claim which may be made against
the company. The working costs
are given at £12.24 per ton, which
makes* it impossible to extract the
bulk of the ore which appears to
run at about $11.50—at a profit,"
As with the sister mine, the
Kootenay, the criticism above reproduced, is to be taken cum grano
salis. Undoubtedly correct, as the
recent investigations in London
have shown, as far as regards the
methods of promotion and financing
and of accounting in general, yet
when the Btate of the mine is
brought into question the critic;s m
is unfair and unjust. That the
Nickel Plate had not a profit is the
case, of course, but as the whole of
the development for one year iB
charged up against the shipments
of a few months the paper loss is
not to be taken as a measure of the
mine. The price of copper comes
largely into this question. If copper were to remain at its present
figure, of which there ia no likelihood, the RosBland Great Western
might perhaps be in the parlous
condition inferred. But when copper goes up again, as it must shortly, the stores of ore at present choking up the stopes, the getting of
which has already been charged to
profit and loss, will, if taken for the
year in which exported, show a profit that would as far exceed the actual profit as the pre.cut paper loss
minimizes it.
The store question is one that
chiefly concerns the business
" shrewdneBB" of the manager. He
imported that " Bhrewdness" here
as much as he imported his Joplin
labor. It is to be hoped that both
are foreign to the country.
