The following resolution has been
passed by the Viotoria Board of
Trade:
Whereas, by the decision of the
Alaskan Boundary Commission, the
title of the United States to the
western coast of the continent north
of Portland Canal, has been confirmed, whereby a atrip of foreign
teriitory has been interposed between the sea and the Yukon territory and the northern portion of
British Colombia;
And whereas, the part of Canada
above mentioned contains great
natural resources whioh can only
be very imperfectly utilized without railways;
And whereas, it ie to the disadvantage of Canada that the business now done and hereafter to be
developed, in the part of (he Dominion above mentioned, should
contribute to the building up of
foreign cities;
Therefore, Resolved, that tbis
board has learned with great satisfaction that Sir Wilfred Laurier,
premier of Canada, has deolared in
place in parliament, that it has now
become the immediate duty of
Canada to provide an all Canadian
railway to the Yukon, and most
heartily endorse the same;
Further Resolved, that in the
opinion of thiB board suoh a railway Hiiou'ci, in the interests of the
nor It-m country, as well aB in justice to the coast oities of British
C lumbin, be constructed from a
point on the seaboard of this Province with t-uch sou'hern connection and extensions as will pro
vide the shortest and speediest
connection with those cities;
And Further Resolved, that a
copy of this resolution be sent to
the Right Hon. Si.' Wilfrid Lauiier
and the Hod. Richard McBride;
And Further Resolved, that a
oommittee of five be appointed to
correspond witb the boards of
trade of Vanoouver, New Westminster, Nanaimo, Atlin and Dawson,
tbe oity council of Cumberland,
I and with such other publio bodies
and private irdividuale as they
may deem advisable, with the
view of securing their cooperation
in giving effeot to the object of
these resolutions, namely, tbe immediate construction of an all-Ca-
dian line from the British Columbia seaboard to the Yukon.

Seoul, 'Maroh 4.—The Russian
forces at Anju are compelling the
Koreans to supply them with rice
fodder and fuel. The Russians are
fortifying Antung heavily with tbe
apparent intention of preventing
the Japanese from crossing the
Yalu river.
St. Petersburg, Maroh 4.—Ominous rumors have spread through
business oirclea that Port Arthur
will be abandoned to the enemy,
after sinking the ships, as was
done in tbe Crimean war.
St. Petersburg, Maroh 4.—Since
the disappearance of the Japanese
fleet from before Port Arthur the
Russian authorities have been
awaiting anxiously the next move
of the Japanese on sea. There is an
inclination to believe that the Japanese have been discouraged by the
failure of their attacks and perhaps by losses they have not announced.
It is evident, even from the
meagre information regarding the
Russian dispositions in northern
Korea, that the plan for oheoking
the Japanese land advance is per
fected or that heavy reserves are
being brought up the Yalu river.
Every energy of the authorities
is now direoted to prevent a blockade of the Siberian railway. Twenty
new sidings, each 2100 feet, are being erected. Owing to the heavy
movement of rolling stock carrying
reinforcements, war munitions and
commissariat stores eastward, there
is great danger that in bringing
back the empty cars the whole line
may be stopped. With the sidings
now building the authorities hope
to be able to keep the line clear
and to send 11 trains in each direction daily.
Mail advices from Siberia say
that the army reserves from the
rural districts seem to be muoh
more anxious to go to the front
than the townsmen. Many of tbe
latter are presenting physicians'
certificates of illness.
The government bank balance
on Maroh 1st showed a decrease of
only $4,000,000. The gold in hand
amounted to 1456,000,000.
Paris, Maroh 4. — Information
from official sources shows that
Japanese concentration of troops iB
going on extensively in tbe neighborhood of Pingyang, Korea.
Large forces are debarking from
transports at nearbv ports from
whioh it is assumed that an extensive land engagement is imminent
in Northern Korea.
Bt. Petersburg, March 4.—-A de*
(spatch from Vladivostok, dated to-
i day. says, according to private re
> ports there, that three detachments
of 800 men each recently landed at
Chiungchang, Korea, about 150
miles north of Wonsan, with tbe
supposed object of reaohing the
valley of the Tuman river, and
threatening Hunchun, Manchuria,
nine miles north of the Korean
boundary and near Vladivostok.
A fleet of 10 Japanese warships
was recently sighted on the horizon
off Vladivostok. They are believed
to be reserve vessels, not powerful
enough to block Vladivostok or endanger the Russian first-olass cruisers, whose base is that port.
St. Petersburg, March 4.—Although it is denied that the present
plans of the admiralty contemplate
tho despatch of either the Blaok sea
or Baltio fleet to the Far Bast, both
are being prepared in tbe greatest
haste to meet any emergency that
may arise.
Genaral Altwater, artillery specialist, and Admiral Veerkhosky are
inspecting the ships and crews of
tbe Blaok sea fleet. Work on warships is being pushed night and
day. The battleships Borodino and
Orel and the transport Kamstchatka
are nearing completion at the ad
miralty dockyards here. In the
dead of night the ice-bound Neva is
like an Artio landscape lighted half
a mile by the flare of bla-.ing Btaoks
the silence broken by the din of
drumming hammers. The battleship Borodino must be taken to
Kronstadt to reoeive her armor and
it is reported that the ice-breaker
Ermak will be brought horn Revel
to cut a ohannel lo the arsenal
there, The battleship Alexander
III at Kronstadt is ready, and the
Russian fleet, recently at Jibutil,
Frenoh Somaliland, is returning, eo
that when spring opens Russia will
have an imposing array of naval
ships in the Baltio.
About 800 volunteer workmen
have left here to work at the dockyards at Port Arthur and Vladi-
vistok.
Paris, March 4.—The Liberte today published a despatch trom St.
Petersburg saying that tbe British
ambassador, Sir Charles Scott, had
transmitted to foreign minister
Lamsdorff the answer of Great
Britain to the Russian protest
against colonel Youngbusband's
expedition to libel,with the further
announcement tbat Qreat Britain
had bound herself not to menace
the independence of Tibet unrl
that Russia had given a like aseur

One of the most important factors in the development of the Elmore process is a cheap supply of
oil.   It is estimated that a 200 ton
plant, running full time, should be
operated at a oost of between $1.25
and $1.50 a ton.    Now, when the
oil process was started here oil oost
41 oents per gallon and as a gallon
is used to every ton of ore treated
it will be seen at onoe how important a factor is oil.   Oil ie now procured (from Canadian sources) at
29 cents per gallon.   The cheapest
oil is produoed in Canada at a rate
of six cents a gallon, but that oil
would cost delivered in Rossland
22 cents.   The oil that is used in
Rossland is the crude oil with the
lighter oils taken off and iB the residuum left in the still.    It is used
for a oheaper grade of lnbricating
oil, and henoe has another use than
that to which it is placed by the
Brmore people.   The oost of that
oil at the still Ib 13 oents.   The
difference iB the freight here from
Eastern  Canada.    It  is  on  the
freight  that a  sensible reduotion
will have to be made, and, as the
oil will be used in ever increasing
quantities by the Elmore people, a
reduction should also be made by
the oil makers.    Oil of the same
olass is sent over the ocean to Great
Britain by  manufacturers ia tbe
United States at a oost, delivered,
in London or Liverpool, of 12 to
16 cents per gallon.   There is an
added duty if imported into Canada of five oents per gallon. It will
be seen that the question of a reduction oi oil iB a que tion mainly
of freight and it is anticipated that
the C. P. R. will make a sensible
reduction  in   this regard, which,
should this anticipation prove to be
oorreot, ought to entitle the great
railway company to some thanks
from Rosslanders.   Altogether it is
to be hoped that the cost of oil will    A Court 0, Revision and Appeali under
be brought down to the vioinity of  lhe provisions of the "Assessment Act,"
„„ „ . ' "I" be held at   the Court House, at the
At oents per gallon.    There are Oil   Citv of Grand Forks, on the seventh day
fields in Eastern Kootenay, whose °' Marah- '9°4'at lw° °Vk"k in ,he al"
products. from tests made locally,
are suitable enough ior the Elmore
process. The trouble is that the
fields have yet to be developed and
and alter they have been developed
it still remains an open question
whether^ the nearer distance to
Rossland of these fields will make a
proportionate reduotion as to freight
rates. The oil produolion of Eaet
Kootenay is the only hope of forcing a lower price on the eastern
oil, for as long as the manufacturers can find a ready maiket for
their product at 13 cents as a lubricant there exists no urgent reason
why they should be willing to sell
it for less to any mining oompany
in the Kootenays or anywhere
else.

mission
NOT IN  FAVOR OF GALLIHER
Are Indignant With the Manner I
Which Western Federation Has
Been Accused
A Committee having been appointed by tbe Greenwood Minera
Unian to consider the reoent re-
p rt of tbe Royal Labor Commission have submitted tbe following
in reply to the oharges therein
made:
We, your oommittee, apointed at
the meeting of February 6,1304, to
investigate the report of the Royal
Labor Commission on industrial
disputes in the Provinoe of British
Columbia, beg to report as follows—
Having carefully read and examined the said report, we have
come to the conclusion that the
report is unfair, one sided and
honey combed with falsehoods,
and, as we deem it unnecessary to
go through the whole report to establish our oharges, we will mention only a few of the many instances.
On Page 3 of the report the oath
of the U. B. of R. E. ia given in
full, with no mention or comment
ot the hireling of capitalistic greed
who so far forget his manhood aB
lo Btoop to such unwarranted
aotion in making publio the oath
of the Brotherhood.
The report en Page 5 den ounces
the faot that the private business
of the C. P. R. was being given out
and discussed in the divisions of
the Brotherhood, and that eaid
business could not have come to
them except through the treachery
of members of the Brotherhood
holding responsible positions with
theC. P.R.
It also denounces the boyoott aB
used by labor organizations, but
makes no referenoe to the blaoklist
in vogue with oapitalist combines.
It goes to some length to ehow
its disapproval of the bond of unity that exists between tbe labor
unions ol Canada and the United
States, but has nothing to say
against the bond tbat exists) between the different international
bodies ol organized oapital.
In all the evidence given before
tbe Commission in ita sitting! at
the different plaoeB, we find all
evidenoe omitted that was in any
way favorable to labor, and only
such evidenoe ae appeared fair to
the 0. P. R. and the different coal
oompanied printed in the report.
The most glaring ol all the recom
inendations put forth by tbe committee is the one whioh they advocate on page 68, viz —That the
Western Federation of Miners, the
United Brotherhood ot Railway
Employes the Amerioan Labor
Union be declared illegal for no
other reason that that they had
endorsed the principles of the
Sooialist party. One reason given
for parliamentary condemnation
ol these bodies Jis that it might
eerve to stop the distribution of
Incendiary and scurrilous litera
tore, referring mainly to the
Miners Magazine. The report
gives extracts Irom the Minere
Magazine aa examples, but we oan
find nothing except truth in the
extracts, and we believe that they
would be good reading for any
workingman, and would advise
all union men to subscribe for the
Miners Magazine.
On page 58, the report aocunes
James.Baker, our executive officer,
of giving misleading information
b flora the Commission, and also
acouses him of respecting bis oath
as little before the Commission as
he did tne trust that had been reposed in him by^ibe workingmen of
the provinoe. Regarding thiB
aooueation, we have only to m-k
the members ol organized labor
who have ever oome in contact
with Mr. Baker, to judge lor them"
Belve". Your committee, knowinj.-:
Brotber Baker personally ae we do,
take this as a direct insult to the
Western Federation ot Miners.
In regard to the Rev. Mr. Rowi
who was one of the CommieBinners
and who has signed hin name to
tbij infamous report, we find thai
he is the man who charged twenty-
five cents to people throughout this
provinoe to hear him expound tbe
dootrine of publio ownership of
utilities, and who now, lor tbe
PeterB fence he has received from
the Liberal government, has seen
fit to play the part of a Judas towards his fellow men by denouncing the very syBtem whioh he him
self advocated. We believe tbis
man to be a capitalist hireling ol
the worst type.
Regarding arbitration ol any
form, Mr. James Dunsmuir clearly
demonstrated that it is impraotioal,
inasmuch as he said there wae
nothing to arbitrate as the property was his and be would do as he
liked with it. Tbis clearly shows
that the man who bas to beg tbe
job has nothing in oommon with
the man who owns the means of
wealth prodnotion.
We might also mention the miserly way in whioh theae these two
Commissioners were treated by the
Liberal government, having reoeived only $10,000 for a few days
work.
During the late provincial campaign when Mr. Galliher waB
stumping this riding in the interests of J R. Brown, at a publio
meeting in Greenwood be made the
statement that he endorsed the
findings ol the Royal Labor Com-
mission.    He was asked during the

meeting if the Liberal Government
intended to endorse the reoommen
dations of the Royal Labor Commission regarding the suppression
of the Western Federation of Min
ers by legal enactment. He replied
that the matter was under con
sideration, but no action had yet
been taken upon it. He also stated
that there was sworn evidence before the commission that the executive board of the "Western Federation of Miners had entered into a
deal with the leading copper inter
ests of the United States in order lo
disorganize the similar industries
in Canada. At. a meeting in Midway, the following evening, he wae
asked to show where this evidence
could be found in the report. He
replied that that particular evidence had not yet been published,
but would appear in a Becond edition of the report. To the best of
our knowledge this Becond edition
has never been printed and put before the publio. Two things, therefore remain—either, after due consideration, the second edition was
suppressed, or Mr. Galliher made
a deliberate misstatement of the
facts.
R scorn mendetlons.
After giving the report oi the
Royal Commission due consideration, we, your committee, have
oome to the conclusion that it is
the most deceiving report ever
handed to the Canadian publio, aud
that it is purely of capitalistic production. We further believe that
the only salvation for the working
olass lies in tbe exeroiee of their
right at the ballot box by voting
for the publio ownership of all
utilities, abolition of the wage system and equality of opportunities
for all, whioh is embraced in the
platform of the Socialist party of
British Columbia.
