London, Maroh 9.—The House
of Lords spent two hours yesterday
in a discussion of the question of a
oolonial preference. Lord Beau-
champ raised the point of Mr.
Chamberlain's allegation that the
self governing oolonies had made a
definite and substantial offer to
Britain which would be criminal
and dafigerouB to refuse. More
important than the attitude of the
colonial Premiers disclosed in the
blue book referring to the
conference of 1902 was the
attitude of the oolonial Parliaments since Mr. Chamberlian's
famous Birmingham speeoh. Only
the Legislature of Maintoba out of
21 Parliaments had passed a resolution favoring Mr. Chamberlian's
scheme. Canada's trade with Britain since the preference had in-
crcsed 34 per oent, while her ex
ports to Germany had increased during the Bame period 109 per
cent.
The Duke of Mariboroagh, replying on behalf of the Government,
said the colonies in general have
not made us a definite offer, but
they have in a praotical nanner incited us to enter into reciprocal relations, giving as a token of their
good will preferential treatment
which was neither inconsiderable
nor by any means valueless. He
quoted the resolutions passed at the
conference of oolonial Premiers and
by the Boards af Trade of Montreal, Toronto, London, St. John
and other oities, the preferences extended by South Afrioa and New
Zealand and the preference leanings of Australia. He was not, he
said, speaking in favor of the
oolonial preference idea, but simply to show that Mr. Chamberlain
was correct in stating the offer uf
oolonial support.
Lord Rosebery declared the alleged offer of the colonies, supposed
to be contained in the conference
resolution, was only the pious
opinion of Mr. Chamberlain. He
oalled the result of Canada's preference altogether disappointing.
He would have laid more import-
tanoe upon the statement of the
Australian Premier in lavor ol an
Imperial preference If he bad been
returned to Parliament with a substantial majority at bis baok.
There was no reason for dislocating our fiscal system in order to
meet the preferential tariffs of the
oolonies. He quoted Sir Wilfrid
Laurier's statement that the Canadian preference was given not as a
bargain, but as a matter of good
will. He thought that as a mere
matter of gratitude the colonies
might give us a preference, because
it wae less than the equivalent services we rendered them in support-

Tokio, March 10.—Japanese war*

wan, Port Dalny, on the night of
Maroh 8, and then attacked Port
Arthur.
Seoul, March 10.—A party ol
nine Russians seized the Korean
telegraph station at Yungwon today. It is reported that a fight has
ocourred between Koreans and
Russians on the Korean side of
Tumen river.
St. Petersburg, Maroh 10.—Cossack scoutH report that the Japanese oolumn Irom Plaksin bay on
arriving in the snow blookaded defile ol the mountaine separating
Korea Irom Manohuria, was forced
to halt owing to avalanches and
other obstacles.
The scouts say that one-third of
the strength of this column is invalided. It is now supposed the
oolumn is returning for the purpose of seeking an easier route.
Pekin, Maroh 10.—The   Tartar
troops carry rifles stamped with a
number and the Russian seal, and
tin dishes indicating that they are
Boldiers licenoed by Russia. Russia permits this abble to remain.
but demands tbat not only shall
no mere law-respecting soldiers be
sent into the district but that those
already there be withdrawn.
A telegraph line oonneots the
Russian legation at Peking with
the various stations along the
Manchurian railway. The Russians have also seized a telephone line whioh heretofore has
been at the disposal of the foreign
residents of Newchwang. Despite
the faot that the Russians are using
this treaty port as a base, they are
endeavoring to have Newchwang
deolared neutral by the powers.
Such action would work Berious
injury to Japan.
All of the coal supply at Newchwang, inoluding 22,000 tons be--
longing to a British firm, has been
purchased by Russia.

WAR EAGLE.
The annual report of the War
Eagle presented to the shareholders
at the meeting of February 28 in
Toronto is to hand. It is not
altogether in accordance with
the first reports published interestedly in this camp. The
income of the mine amounted
to $312,579 proceeding from the
net ore sales of 60,093 tons of ore
The groBB smelter value of ore, deducting the differences between the
price* paid on the metal contents
in New York, and that paie. by the
smelter, amounting to $3.13 per
ton, was $9.87. The net smelter
value, deduotiog the cost of freight
and treatment, $4.56, was $5.31
This $5 31 muBt, therefore, pay fur
development and Btoping, general
expenses and profit.
The oost of stoping is plaoed at
$2.90 per ton, and the cost of development at 44 cents.   As there
were 1410 tons remaining over from
the previous year the cost of stop
ing and development together were
$3.26.   This leaves  a  balance of
$2.05. Now the mine cleared above
all    expenses   $68,512 31,   which
means a profit of $1.14 per ton on
60,093 Ions of ore sold.   That is lo
say the other expenses were $2.05
lees this amount, or 91 oents per
ton.   Now in an elaborate table the
annual report sets forth the cost of
mining and compares them carefully for seven years back, and it
is careful to state that these costs
include general expenses.    Indeed,
When it comes to a question oi ore
production it sayB that the general
expenses amount to 2S cents of the
$2.90 per ton charged up per ton
against this.   The 91 centB, there
fore, must have been expended in
some other channel. This amounts
to $54,557.   In the profit and loss
account it iB Btated that $32,407 02
were expended for interest, $1,276
tor legal   expenses   (lighting   the
Miners' Union, the city and neighboring miues), $1,738 G9 for investigation of ore processes and $144 50
for sundries (tripB   to Victoria?)
But this still leaves $19,128 unaccounted for.     It is true that the
profit and loss account shows $8,-
810.04 to diamond drill prospecting,  but  surely   this   should   be
oharged to development, as it takes
the plaoe of drifting, raising, oroes-
cut.ing and sinking.    It probably
is.     Then again there arc $2,500
oharged for the managing direct-
ors's salary, put together with $1,-
075.49 for "head office expenses,"
ought to be charged to general expense, and no doubt  are, in   the
hands of so skillful accountant as
that possessed by the War Eagle,
who used to calculate how much
the legal expenses antl the Btamps
amounted to per ton of ore mined.
Besides these there are two small
items, taxes and auditors fees v hkh
amount to $464.10 whioh may sob
have been, by the expert accctm,'.-
ant,charged to general expense!.
Bat taking those last items altogether they only amount to something ovei $12,000, lowing nearly
$7,000 unaccounted for.    This uu-
accounlableness may either be in
the mind ol the critic, who humbly
awaits correction, or it may be the
deficit on the workin. of the Miner,
or the purchase of a iob plant for it
to play with.
Of the total amount earned, $38,-
000 waB eet down to depreciation of
the plant, which is at the rate of
nearlv 20 per cent. ThiB is an uu-
usual amount, but possibly Man
agar Kirby knows the worth of his
machinery.
On the other hand the costs of
development have been brought
down to 44 cenls per ton mined.
Now the cost of developments have
been various since 1897, varying
from $20.27 in 1900 to $1.74 in the
year previous, disregarding the
year under under consideration,
1903. Taking the average for the
six   years   preoeding   1903,    the
j$i?^i^i^CS1lCl3i^i^i?&
amount per ton is $7,77, Taking
the averages of 1901 and 1902 the
amount per ton- is $4.81. This
would show that development work
has not been done to any great extent, which is further confirmed
when the public is informed that
only 20,000 tonB, or four months
supply at the normal rate of shipping, ia blocked out. iThis would
mean that 1904 must undertake development to make up for the past
year if the inference is justifiable,
which is apparently the case. Thie
would further mean that if the cost
of development iB assumed at $2.02,
the average for the three past years,
the mine must cut all euch incidental as legal expenses and head
office salaries and^ newspaper running, if it would show a profit and
furthermore that the deuelopment
of the ote reduction plant at Trail
is vital to tbe mine as at present
managed. The Le Roi and the Le
Roi No. 2 are making handsome
profits out of a very Bimilar averag
ing ore, and the War Eagle should
take a leaf out of the books. However there is no doubt that a step in
the right direction has been taken
in the Trail plant though the management has been confoundedly
long winded over the matter. The
Le Roi No. 2 started two years
af er the War Eagle and iB finished
two years ahead.

man Baron falls in love with him.
CHAPTER XII (Continued)
So presently she oome to her
point, and, fingering that scroll
she had, very downcast and blushful, said, 'You are a good knight,
Sir Stranger, and strong and experienced in arms.'
'Your Ladyship's description
wakes my ambition to deserve your
words.'
'Aud generous, I have noticed,
aud as indulgent to page and squire
of tender yoars are the contrary to
stronger folk.'
'And if this were bo, Madam,' I
asked, 'what then.'
'Oh! only,' she said, wondrous
shy and frighiened, 'that I have
here a cartel from a friend of mine,
a youth of noble family, who has
beard of tbee, and would go to the
wars in your company—as your
oomrade, I mean: that is, if you
would take him.'
'Why, damsel, the wars are freo
to everyone; but I am in no mood
just now to tutor a young gallant
in slitting Frencbm»n's throats!'
■But this one, Sir, very particularly wiBheB to travel with you, of
whose powers he is bo oonvinced
He has, alael quarrelled with those
as whose side he should most
naturally    ride—he    will   be  noj
trouble; for my sake you must take j R(ja| ^ ^ g^^ jj^.
him. And,' said that cunning girl,
standing on tiptoe to be the Dearer
to my ear, 'he is rioh, though
friendless by a rash love—he will
gladly Bee to both horses and disburse your passage over to France,
even for the honor of remembering
that he did it.'
Now, thia touched me very nearly. One by one my rings had
gone, and that morning, afler paying scores and largesse, iu truth I
had fouud my wallet completely
empty once again! If this youth
had money, ever though it were
but sufficient to buy corn for our
ohargers on the way, and pay the
ferry over to yonder fair field of
adventure, why, thero was no
denying he would be a very convenient traveling companion, and it
would go hard but that I could
teach him something in return.
Thinking this, I lifted my eyeB,
and found those of lsobel watching
the workings of my face with pretty cunning.
'In truth, maid, if thy friend haB
eo muoh gold as would safely land
us with King Edward in Flanders,
why, I muBt oonfeBB that just at
present that does greatly commend
him to me. What sort of a man
is he?'
This question seemed  to overwhelm the lady, who blushed and
hung her head like a poppy that has
stood a week's drought.
'In truth, Sir,' she murmured, '1
do not know.'
'Not know! Why, but, you  Baid

That Typewriting
W. J. Robinson called alone yesterday afternoon  at the editorial
offioe of tbe World and requested
that an item be published contradicting the letter   written to the
oity counoil wanting payment for
typewriting certain copies of the
procedure by-laws, adding that the
writer waB willing to acknowledge
the letter in question to be an error.
He waB informed by tbe editor, to
whom the Miner bo courteously refers this morning in the gentlemanly manner whioh invariably  distinguishes it, beihg to the manner
born, tbat this being the case it
was absolutely necessary that an
assurance to that effect must come
to him from the writer personally
and nothing could be published unless this were done.    This was the
end of the matter.
Were the Miner to adopt this
oourse, followed by all newspaper
men who know their profession, it
would have fewer mistakes to apologize for or libel suits to settle,     ,
