MONDAY'S   GUN   PLAY
Participants Are Let Off
With a Lenient Sentence.
The attention of the polioe court
was taken up during the whole of
the morning with the double oharge
against two miners named Gleason
and Martial. The case for' the
crown was watched by W. J. Nelson and that for the prisoners,
Gleason and Martial, by Messrs.
Gillan and Macdonald respectively.
The story of the case was that
the two men had been working together on a machine in the Le Roi
mine. THat Martial on Sunday
morning was put to shovelling and
that he, ascribing his down fall to
Gleason,vowed vengeance. Gleason
got afraid and armed himself with a revolver into
which he put three shells.
Tbe two men encountered on Columbia avenue on Monday evening
last and watched eaoh other till
they reaohed the viaduct over Davis
street. There they stopped and
Martial struck Gleason with his
fist. Gleason was afraid of a knife
and brandished his revolver and
tried to chase Martial away. Martial, however, dodged behind a telegraph pole, and as Gleason
thought he had drawn a knife or a
gun he in turn bolted. Martial
followed him home. The police
came up and arrested them both.
Magistrate Boultbee fined Martial $15 for the assault and Gleason
was discharged.
Both men can think they got
well out of the matter.

Good muBio at  the  Palace  tonight.
Date of Celebration Practically Settled-Tomorrow's Meeting.
Word has been received from the
Boundary country that the negotiations which have been concluded
by Conductor James Irvine with the
Granby people are successful, and
the celebration will probably be arranged tor August 25 and 26 next,
being a Tuesday and Wednesday.
This being the case, everybody
should be present at the meeting ef
the executive committee to be held
tomorrow evening at 8 o'olock in
the City Hall. What has to be
done iB to elect a permanent secretary and chairman, the present
ohair being occupied by the mayor
as honorary president, whioh honorary office he will continue to hold
as his right as the ohief oitizen of
the camp. Besides these subcommittees will have to be formed for
the various departments of the eel-
bration, suoh as finance, reception,
accommodation, programme, advertising, sports, games, drilling and
parade. 0
It is hoped that there will be
representative Bet of men on each
committee, naturally giving precedence to those who are particularly interested in tbe subcommittees to be formed. The subcommittees oan meet at their own convenience, and electing their own
chairmen proceed to business. A
meeting ol the whole executive
will not be very often wanted. In
such case it is desirable that every
one interested shot 1J make it a
point to be present tomorrow evening. Nothing can sucoeed if it is
loft tQ one or two to make arrangements which are afterwards violently objected to by the very people
who were too indolent to be present on the occasion when their desires might have been made known.
Have you seen the  special  bargains offered at THE CRESCENT?

HOW TO RUN
A COUNCIL
Public   Demonstration Is
Afforded.
ALDERMAN DANIEL A BAD BOY
Mayor Dean Taos His City Coun-
cil Class to Task Last
Night
Those citizens who went down to
the city counoil last night in order
to witness a scrap" were disappointed ir* the main issue but were
doubtless d* lighted at the magisterial way in whioh the mayor
handled his council. It was a case
of 'I say untc one man come and
he cometh and to another go and
hegoeth.' The ordinary schoolmaster could get points. One had
merely to shut one's eyes and the
trenoher board cap and the birch
were at once apparently in the
room and one momentarily ex-
peoted to hear that very bad boy
Harry Daniel told to write out his
lesson (he was actually told to learn
it) or ordered to go stand in the
corner. Alderman McKichan oame
in for some remarks, but as he
signed when ordered, why, no penalty was exacted. Alderman Embleton poBed as the good boy and
accordingly stood at the head of
the olass.
There was no particular business
transacted.
The mayor said that next meeting he would bring in the assessment bylaw and put it through
two readings to make up for lost
time. The counoil seemed to agree
that lost time ought to be made up,
but as Alderman Daniel was apparently between rounds and as nobody else seemed inclined to encounter a magisterial taking to task
no remarks were made.
The city polioe magistrate asked
that certain cases should be watched by the crown and the mayor informed tbe council tbat as the appointment of a oity solicitor
lay between it and the polioe commissioners, he had
deoided against the oity counoil and had given the appointment
to W. J. Nelson, for these oases
only. This extraordinary procedure struok nobody as anything but
in thorough accordance with the
mayor's methods and accordingly
nobody thought it worth while to
comment.
Alderman Embleton brought up
his resolution tbat Alderman Dunlop sign cheques in future instead
of Alderman Daniel. This had
been seconded by Alderman Mo-
Kichan, but the proposer itbdrew
it on the ground that Alderman
Daniel had signed certain oheques.
Anterior to this there had been
some trouble over tbe passing of
the minutes of the previous meeting, which met with an objection
on the ground of the working of Alderman Embleton's notiee of motion on tbe matter whioh closed with
to startling announcement that
"All resolutions conflicting with
this are hereby rescinded."    Tbis

RATHER   INCONSISTENT.
RELATIVE COSTS.
A miners inch mean 1.68 cubic
feet of water per minute, whioh is
2419.2 oubio feet in the twenty-
four hours. Now each oubio foot
represents 62.5 pounds of water or
a total discharge of 151,200 pounds
of water daily. This iB equivalent
to 75.6 short tons or 15,120 gallons
daily. If, according to the Elmore
process, it requires but 8 tonB of
water to the concentration of one
ton of ore, it is evident that one
miners inch is capable of treating
9 tons of ore daily. The most conservative estimated capacity of the
creeks to the north of the city is
500 inches in dry times. The most
exaggerated report of the cost of
bringing that water into camp is
not more than $600,000, the interest and sinking fund on which
would amount to, at eight per oent,
148,000 annually. That is to say
that tbe mines could be supplied
with 500 inches of water daily,
capable of treating 4500 tons of ore
if once used or 9000 tons if twice
used, every day at a cost, as far as
water is concerned, of $48,000 an
nually. Taking 310 working dayB
in the year, $48,000 will be all that
will have to be spent for water to
treat 9000x310 or 2,790,000 tons of
ore. That is to say the cost of
water per ton of ore concentrated is
1.64 cents or one-fifth of a cent for
eaoh ton of water used. Supposing
that the figure olaimed by the
Silica process is 15 tons of water to
one of ore is used, then the cost per
ton of ore for water would be but
three cents, and if the water could
not be used but once, six cents. So
that in the worst possible view
taken of the matter, the cost of
water would be but six cents per
ton of ore and would probably be
found in practice to fall below one
and a half cents.
Lately tte War Eagle people
having been taking out interim
records at the mouths of the creeks
entering the Columbia, so that
whether the concentrator is at
Rossland or at Trail, there will be
a considerable difference in the coat
of water per ton of ore. But if the
concentrator be taken away from
the camp, freight rates will immediately have to be paid on the ore.
This cannot well be less than 25
cents per ton, or four to 20 times
the cost of water, which in any case
will Btill have to be incurred.
It Is possible that if the city
council does not wake to the situa
tion, other mines than those of the
Gooderham syndicate, which has
attempted to corral all the upper
waters, may have to leave camp to
find a suitable site for their concentrators, but tbat the War Eagle
people really intend to do so is
absurd. The present aotion is
probably merely a bluff which also
contains another, i. e., that of showing intending concentrator builders
in the vicinity of Rossland that if
they leave oamp they are still up
against the ubiquitous Kirby and
bad better give in at once.
There does not seem to be a single newspaper in the United States,
says the Viotoria Times, that is
not convinced that oloser commercial affiliations between Qreat Britain and her colonies would mean
the ruin and ultimate disruption of
the Empire. The great majority
of the same papers are just as sure
that the United States has reached
the stage at whioh she haB arrived
to-day, has shown the rapid growth
of the late years of her life, as
result of the unity of tbe states and
the protection ' which has been
accorded them against a too aggressive commercial and industrial
world. We submit that the posi
tion of our contemporaries is
scarcely logical. A course whioh
has proved beneficial in one instance could scarcely prove harmful in anether instance where the
conditions are precisely similar.
The natural resources and the in
dustrial possibilities of Great Bri
tain and her Colonies are quite as
great as, their acquired and poten
tial wealth at least equal to, those
of the United States of America.
Amerioan writers think they can
prove that Great Britain, in a comparative sense, is losing ground
now. Would it npt be a wise,
statesmanlike idea, to check the
downward tendency while there is
yet time—assuming that there is
a downward tendency, which, the
great majority of British statesmen
deny.
The truth is that the United
States, despite her assumption of
being, by reason of her superority
in government and resources, above
and beyond such a feeling as jealousy of any power, looks forward
hopefully to the day when her
superiority in all realms of industrial life will bo unquestioned.
Her statesmen believe that the
desired consummation is rapidly
being aohieved, and they are frankly averse to any departures from
existing conditions. Whatever influence they possess will be exerted
in favor of the continuance of the
present status. All the power of
the press is already being brought
to bear in that direotion. The
tendency may be noted in the
tone of the AsBciated Press dispatches. A few days ago the government was doomed—Mr. Chamberlain was about to be cast out to
roam a solitary political figure, not
without a certain amount of honor,
through a wilderness of unsympathetic constituencies. Now il is
the Prime Minister whose position
is untenable. The Canadian publio will not get the whole truth by
telegraph until our newspapers
secure an independent cable service.
For some reason or other the
continental newspapers have decided to remain mum and let the
electors of Great Britain light their
politioal battles without interference. PerhapB they think their intervention might have the opposite
to a desirable effect. A dispatch
says that throughout the Scandinavian Kingdoms the greatest
anxiety is felt on account of Mr.
Chamberlain's tariff project.
Should the British Colonial Secretary's soheme be carried out,
the Scandinavian export food
trade would suffer a severe
blow. Moreover, the duty
on colonial timber, whioh almost
killed the Baltic timber trade
about the end of the eighteenth
century, and the abolition of whioh
in the middle of last century created an economic revival in Sweden aud Norway, could  cause in-

The Dominion government supporters have frequently said: Why
are you (British Columbia) always
in financial straits? You collect
heavy taxes, and for your population the amount collected is greater than any three provinces in the
Dominion- There is no doubt our
methods are expensive and we
print the inoome and expenditure
of the other provinces with our
own for the benefit of our readerB.
We also give the population as it
appears be the last census, so that
comparisons may be made.

CONSERVATIVE PLATFORM
[Adopted nt Rovplstoke, September 13th, iota:]
1. Thnt this convention reaffirms the policy
of tho party in matters of provincial roads and
India; the ownership and control of railways
and the development of tho agricultural ro-
BOUTOeaofthe province as laid down in the
platform adopted in October, 1899, which is as
follows;
"To actively aid in the construction of trails
throughout tho undeveloped portions of tho
province and the building of provincial trunk
roads of public necessity.
"To adopt the principles of government ownership of railways in so far as the circumstances of tho province will Admit, nnd tho
adoption of the principle that no bonus should
be granted to any railway company which
does not give the government of the province
control of rates over linos bonused, together
with thc option of purchase.   '
"To actively uswist: by state aid in tho dovol-
opmentof the agricultural resources of tho
provinco." ,.
2. That In tho meantime and until tho railway policy above sot forth can be accomplished, a general railway act be passed, giving
freedom to construct railways under certain
approved regulations, analogous to thc system
that has resulted in such extensive railway
construction in tho United States, with so
much advantage to trade and commorce.
3. That to encourage the mining industry,
tho taxation of metalliferous mines should be
on tho basis of upercentngo on the net profits,
4. Thut thc government ownership of tolo
phone systems should be brought about as a
lirst step in the acquisition of public utilitios.
6. That a portion of overy coal Area hereafter to bo disposed of should bo rosorved from
sale or loaso, so that stato owned mines may be
easily Accessible, if their operation becomes
necessary or advisable,.
G. That in tho pulp land leases provision
should be made for reforesting and that stops
should bo taken for the general preservation of
forests by guarding against tho wasteful destruction of timber.
7. That tho legislature and government of
the provinco should persevere in the effort to
secure the exclusion of Asiatic labor.
8. That tho matter of better terms in the
way of subsidy and appropriations for tho
provinco should be vigorously pressed upon tho
Dominion government.
it. That tho silver-lend Industries of tho province be fostcrod and encouraged by the Imposition of increased customs duties ou lead And
lead products imported into Canada, and that
tho Conservative mombcrs of the Dominion
House bo urged to support any motion introduced for such a purpose,
10. That as industrial disputes almost invariably, result in great loss ana injury both to the
parties directly concerned and to the public,
legislation should bo passed to provide moans
for an umicable adjustment of such disputes
between employers and employes.
11, That it is advisable to foster the manufacture of the raw products of tho province
within tho province as far as practicable by
moans of taxation on thesaid raw products,sub-
ject to rebate of the same in whole or part
when manufactured iu British Columbia.

SIMILKAMEEN CITY,
Now Is the Time to Buy Lots
in Similkameen City, B. 6.
CAMP HEDLEY iB the most talked of oamp in the provinoe, and situated in the centre is Similkameen City, surrounded by
rich mines which will shortly have large payrolls. Over 200 lots have been sold to business people who realize that Similkameen will become the metropolis of this district. The Nickel Plate mines have expended $300,000 in development and sre at
present building tramways and a 40-stamp mill. Arrangements are being made for the erection of a large smelter at Similkameen City which will cost about a million dollars. Besides the Nickel Plate group of claims being developed by one of the richest
mining companies in North America, there are several other groups and properties whioh will shortly be developed, among them
being the Kingston Mines, Rollo, Wellington, Winnipeg, Bed Chief ahd Pollock. Situated as it is in the beautiful Similkameen
valley, midway between Princetrn and Keremeos, and protected from all opposition in the valley by adjoining a large Indian
reservation, this townsite will become one of the principal mining camps of the Paoifio Northwest. It was only a short time ago
that lots in Rossland, Nelson, Greenwood and other mining centres were selling for the same price that they are today being sold
for in Similkameen,   Come in before the boom and double your money.
Similkameen City to Have Two Railways.
The Viotoria, Vsncouver & Eastern and the Canadian Pacific railways are starting immediate construction for the Similkameen,
whioh will make thia town a railroad centre and divisional poiut, and when these competing lines are completed through to the
Paoifio coast tbey will beoome the main through lines, being the shortest route from the interior to the ooast. A large sawmill is
running steadily on the west addition, the only available timber for miles around. The main Btreet is 90 feet wide, being all
cleared and ready for building purposes. All railways, roads, telegraph and telephone lines will have to come through this
townsite, whioh is looated in the centre of the whole Similkameen valley and will become the largest distributing point and
mining oentre in British Columbia.

Senator Templeman Gets
Encomium From Silver
Lead Hen.
Ottawa, July 8,1903.
Editor Evening World—
Dear Sir—Before leaving Ottawa
the British Columbia Silver Lead
Miners' delegation, desire to publicly express their appreciation,
not only of the action of the government in acceding to tb"ir request for a bounty on lead, but
also for tbe unvarying sympathy
and consideration which they have
received from the members of the
Cabinet during the necessary investigation of this important question.
Too great credit cannot be given
to Senator Templeman, and our
