ENGLISH COMMENT.
The Hoot Favorable That Has Yet Ap-
porred.
Judging from the crowded at
tendance in the court at every sitting at which the affairs of the
London & Globe company have
been under consideration, says the
Liverpool Mercury, more interest
has been excited by the "revelations" in this case than in any
other in which the affairs of financiers have been investigated for
many yeare. When Mr. Whitaker
Wright was under examination
the court was besieged by an interested crowd, and indeed there
were generally groups of people to
be seen in the sUeets without, discussing the latest turn of the evidence. Mr. Whitaker Wright
himself must be pronounced an excellent witnesB. He has a severe
ordeal in the clever cross-examination of Mr. Rufus Isaacs, K. O,
who spared nothing in plying him
with suggestions and other devices
of a skillful counsel; and once or
twice some slight irritation of manner was shown in breaking into
the middle of a question with an
unnecessary expostulation, such as,
"I don't know what point you want
to make," or "What has that to do
with the matter?" On the whole,
however, he bore the strain remarkably well.

Seattle, Feb. 20.—Tlie steamer
Dirigo, which arrived from Alaska
yesterday, brings news that the
Chilkoot Indians near Haine's mission, Alaska, one February 5th,
buried alive on of their tribe, a
boy 15 years of age. The boy had
been converted to Christianity by
Milo A. Sellon, a Methodist missionary, and in a burst of religious
zeal denounced the mummeries o,f
the tribal icht, or medicine man
This act aroused the anger of tho
superstitious old men of the  tribe.
Recently 14 native residents of
j the village of Kluckwan died of
eonsump'ion and the icht spread the
1 belief that the boy was in league
with the evil one through his
; knowledge of the white man's religion and caused the deaths. The
disappearance of the boy from
school aroused the suspicion of Mr.
Sellon and he started in search of
him. At the outskirts of the
village he found tracks leading to
a fresh grave. Digging down he
found the boy still alive, his bloodshot eyes rolling in insane agony,
his hair torn off in handfuls from
hiB bead. His finger nails were
torn off in his efforts to escape
from his horrible prison.
The   boy   was  lifted   from the
Sergeant Bradshaw made a smart
capture this morning. Thomas
Kennedy has been arrested for the
theft of sundry articles of stationery from the Allan hotel recently.
Part of the goods has been recovered. It seems that Kennedy
wae employed at the Allan for a
short time, and prior to his dismissal was enabled to glean son e-
thing about the internal arrangements of that hotel, and so to plan
his scheme for getting into the
sample room. Sergeant Bradshaw
was suspicious of tlie man as a
likely culprit and, some other circumstances confirming his suspicions, he promptly arrested him.
On the arrest the prisoner wits
searched, and he was discovered to
he in possession of six gold pens
and ten fountain pons. There is a
dozen of each missing, so that
Kennedy has probably succeeded
in disposing of the remainder. The
prayer books have probably been
hidden somewhere, but the police
are in hopeB of recovering them
from a knowledge of the habits of
the prisoner.

THE ORIENTAL COMMISSION
The Oriental commissioners have
this week ended their labors by
submitting the results of their enquiry to the governmental Ottawa.
The work, it is stated, is a monumental one and ought to command
immediate attention. The Would
says "ought." It does not hope
that it will for although Canada
possesses some statesmen these
men are swamped by the politicians. We will hear some nonsense about the development of the
country and the fear of antagonizing imperial aims by laws aimed
at the exclusion of the Japaneze.
Now the fact of the matter is that
of the two nations, the Japanese
and Chinese, the latter is the
worthier from a commercial standpoint. So great is their commercial
integrity that they are employed,-
to the exclusion of the Japs themselves, in the Land of the Rising
Sun, in all positions of trust. No
white man resident in the Far
East for a term of years,and knowing both China and Japan, hesitates in giving the preference, in
this sense, to the Chinese. Japs,
as our Fraser river fishermen attest, are a greater danger to the
country than are the Chinese.
As for the development of the
country, that a secondary matter
to the development of the nation.
" What shall it profit a man if he
shall gain the whole world and
lose his own soul?" says the great
hook, and what shall it profit Canada if it makes itself the greatest
producing nation on the face of the
earth and at the same time allows
the national character to deteriorate and its inhabitants to become
a mongrel breed, at the mercy of
any strong race. If Canada cannot be developed without importing inferior races let Canada remain undeveloped; it will be better for the nation. We shall be
reemen, not slaves; we shall be of
the rulers of the earth and not the
ruled. That there is no necessity
for this retarded development by
the exclusion of the Orientals the
example of the Antipodes haB already shown. The point is merely
this, that the first consideration is
the well being of the nation and
wealth will come of itself unless
Anglo Saxons degenerate on Canadian soil!
THE   IMPENDING  CONFLICT.
The following article published
in the New York Iron Age from the
pen of Stuart Utterly, an English
workingman, who has been visiting
the United States and has travelled
the entire continent, is worthy of
serious attention on the part of
those who on the one hand discourage unionism, and on the other
point to the methods of American
managers with blind reverence.
He BayB:
"The disorganization of labor its
a matter of very serious moment to
tho United Slates. During the last
great engineering strike in England, when over 80,000 men were
out for six montliB, not a shot was
fired. There was not a Bingle riot,
very little disorder, and when
closed it left scarcely any ill feeling. The fact was that being well
organized they were under good
discipline, and being fairly well
provided with the means of subsistence were not driven to the desperation of starving men, hence
they were enabled to rely on a
passive resietencc. One has only
to ask what would have been the
result in the United States of a
prolonged Btrike in one of the leading industries wherein a great majority of the men were without any
means of subsistence and under no
proper control.
As one who has had a long and
varied experience of men and things
I Bhould tremble for the result, and
to every mind in this direction lies
one of the serious dangers to America's future. In Great Britain organized capital and labor are both
sufficiently strong to respect each
other's opinions and to lend a willing ear to the voice of conciliation,
but from what 1 saw and heard in
the Btates organized capital
is the giant, and organized labor the
dwarf. It is pretty much the same
in industry as in other domains of
human enterprise—history repeats
Itself. In the early days of British
industry, when labor was unorganized, riots and disorder were frequent."
"I hope that I am mistaken, but,
judging from what I gathered while
in the states from sources well calculated to form correct opinions, I
fear that the most momentous
danger before America is an individual (industrial) war, such as
the world has never seen before.
"The stronger .'13 trusts grow the
more powerless will labor become.
As it car iot obtain redress from
Congress in a similar manner in
which Britipli labor can from parliament, c) ud linding that tho few
are growing enqrmousy wealthy
while the many are steadily sinking into poverty, it may perchance
strike out fiercely, wantonly and
madly like a blind, enraged giant.
"It is not for me to suggest remedies or to indicate the path of
prudence. That would be impertinent on my part. Allow me,
h )wever, in closing, to say that
nothing so strongly impressed me
while in the Btates as the collective
incompetence of labor and the
growing and crushing might of the
trusts. Sooner or later that well-
organized body will stand face to
face with the horny-handed, undisciplined, and uncontrolled multitude of workers, and then the
real trial of strength will begin,
and after that—the deluge."

Laurier says he is sorry that he
cannot recognize Martin's Liberal
leadership.   Martin is slill sorrier,
Roosevelt has said that there
shall be no more talking in the
Schley-Sampgon controversy. He
forgets the law courts are still open
The Toronto Globe sayB: "It is
painful to relate that the (provincial) house was full when the prohibition bill came up   for debate."
The best argument put up as yet
by the Great Northern is that the
C. P. R. will not supply it with
cars to take coke to the Montana
smelters until those of this province have first been supplied.
A little Englander thinks that
New Zealand has no right to be
heard because its population ia under a million. A country that has
given thc best solution yet offered
to the labor question and has at
the same time made its people the
greatest producing nation, per cap
ta, in the world has the right of
success to talk and command attention.

COKE FOR
SMELTERS
Views of   the   Rossland
Board of Trade on the
Question.
The following document has been
drawn up over the signature of the
president of the Rossland Board of
Trade, embodying the views of that
body with regard to the question of
coke supply for British Columbia
smelters. It will be submitted at
the meeting of the Associated Board
for fuller deliberation.
"In view of the coming meeting
of the Associated Boards of Trade
at Kaslo it may be as well to call
the attention of those interested
and the public generally to the
questions raised by 'Fair play' in
his letter to the Rossland Miner of
February 5th.
It will be noticed that 'Fair
play' carefully avoids the main issue and attemps to mislead the
public by intimating that only
points in the controversy are:
lBt. That Mr. J. J. Hill is a
dangerous "bogey man" seeking to
destroy our Canadian industries.
2nd. That there is danger of a
coal and coke famine in British
Columbia.
3rd. That the agitation is started
by and is entirely in the interests
of the Canadian  Pacific   Railway.
All three of which have an element of truth in them and are
therefore the more dangerous,
while the real points of issue for
us as Canadians, and particularly
as citizens of British Columbia to
consider, are as follows:
1st. Does the Crows Nest Coal
company, controlled by Mr. J. J.
J. Hill, enjoy a monopoly in the
coal mining industry of the Crows
Nest fields of British Columbia.
2nd. If so how does this monopoly affect us?
3rd. If adversely, what, if Any
thing, can be done to remedy it?
First. The best reply to this is
the fact that no company is operated in the Crows Nest fields of
British Columbia excepting the
Crows Nest company, and that the
only independent company which
started operations, and employed
for a short time about 100 men,
was compelled to discontinue
work, unquestionably due to the
direct influence of the Crows Nest
Coal company. Second Has thi*
company taken advantage of its
monopoly in this country?
It has been repeatedly claimed
that preference in orders is invariably given to customers on the
Great Northern road, and the only
safeguard in this respect has been
due to the fact that the Canadian
Pacific have refused to furnish
Great Northern cars until customers along the line of the Canadian
Pacific were first supplied. It is
also claimed that coke has been
sold to' the United States smelters
for considerably less than $4.00;
also that coal has been sold for less
than $9.00 and $2.50 as charged in
British Columbia; also that a decided preference is given United
States consumers in the matter of
quality of both coal and coke. The
most of the coal shipped lo British
Columbia consumers is the so-
called mine run of an inferior
quality, while the best lump coal
is sent south. These are all serious
charges and have never been satisfactorily disproved, and now that
the agitation is on, bearing upon
this fact, the following telegram
appears from Grand ForkB:
'A telephone message from
Greenwood discloses the fact that
the Greenwood smelter would
have been compelled to close down
on account of lack of coke, had it
not been for diversions which
were made to them by the Hall
Mines' and Granby smelters.
This is rather an interesting state
of affairs in view of the fact that
there is more coke being shipped
to the United States than to Canadian points, and emphasises
the fact of the invariable prefer-
once given to coal and coke orders
from the United States institutions
tributary to the Great Northern
railway.'
If the Crows Next is permitted
to continue its monopoly, aro
British Columbia consumers likely
to fare better after the completion
of the Great Northern road? It
has already been shown tbat the
only way in whicb British Columbia consumers have been protected has been through tbe action of the Canadian Pacific railway in refusing to place Great
Northern cars until Canadian
Pacific orderi were filled. As having a particular bearing upon this
subject may be quoted a letter
from the Spokane Chronicle, signed D. Miller, second vice-president
of the Great Northern, in explanation of his being unable to fill tbe
coal orders in Spokane.
'I find upon investigation the
situation to be that the Canadian
Pacific have increased their order
for coal to such an extent that the
coal company is not able to fill
their outside orders, and the Canadian Pacific will not furnish
cars for outside orders until their
own orders have been filled. Under these conditions the coal company is powerless. This company
has had an order for 40 cars of
coal per day, but same has been
shut off. I do not think wecan depend upon any relief until we get
our own line completed into the
coal fields, which, I regret to say,
however, will not be in time for this
winter's business, as we do not expect to have the line completed before May next.'
I think I have shewn conclusively from the above, first, that the
Crow's Nest Coal company have a
monopoly of the Crow's Nest Coal
Fields, and secondly, that that
monopoly affects the interest of |
British Columbia adversely. It
now remains to be seen what can
be done to remedy this state of
affairs.
The agitation which was started
some months ago in favor- of competitive coal   mining   has already

COKE FOR
SMELTERS
(Continued from Third page.)
compelled the coal company to reduce its price of coke from .f 4.50 to
$4.00. We have not heard that
they have reduced the price of coal
and it is fair to assume that as
soon as the agitation stops, or as
soon as the government complies
with the wishes of the coal company, which is that the government tie up the remaining coal
lands in such a way that they may
have the only properties which can
be worked, that then the coal company would simply drop the question of further reduction.
It is evident then that the best
way to Becure a reduction in the
price of coul and coke is to open up
onipetitive coal fields of "equal
value" to those of the Crow's Ncsl
Coal company. It is not a qui s
tion open to dispute that the con 1
and coke produced in the Crow'a
Nest Pass are superior to any produced in this continent, and thut
so far as research has gone up to
date there iB none other quite fo
good likely to be found, at any rate
in the west. We understand that
while it is true lhat the Canadian
Pacific railway is entitled to six
square miles of land in this district they are debarred from working theni under an agreement with
the Crow's Nest Coal company,
which has some six years yet to
run, bo that the only other alternative iB for the Dominion government to exercise its right under the
statute and make its selection of
50,000 acres of these coal lands at
once, It has already been shown
hy expert examination of
these lands that there are only nix
points where these coal fields can
be opened up on an economic basis
and of these six points, five have
already been secured by the Crow's
Nest Coal company, viz: two upon
Michel, two upon Coal Creek and
one upon the north side of Mor-
rissey Creek, bo that the only one
remaining is that upon the south
side of Morrissey Creek. I would
therefore impress upon every citizen 0! British Columbia, and especially of the Kootenays, the importance of urging the government
to make its selection at once, The
wisdom of this is so palpable that

we find the agents of the Crow's
Nest Coal company arguing in
favor of the government making
this selection, but holding these
lands in order to "protect" the public, but it is in tbis latter clause
that we disagree with them. Of
what use would it be to make the
selection and allow the mine? to remain unopened? The chief n-^u-
ment advanced by Mr. Hill's agents
when they applied to the government for their charter to tap Ihe-e
coal landB was that competition
would reduce the rates and that the
people of the Dominion would reap
the benefits. That argument applies with even greater force to
competition in coal and coke.
Labor and supplies are both
more expensive in British Columbia than they are in the large
coalfields of Pennyslvania, Virginia, and the Southern States, but
with coal costing from 60 to 80
cents per ton in these districts and
coke costing $1.75 pei ton, is reasonably safe to assume that with
competition in the production of
coal and coke the prices here would
be reduced from $2.00 to $1.25 for
coal and from $4.00 to $2.50 for
coke, both of which would be a tremendous item to the mines, smelters and other consumers of British
Columbia.
We think therefore that the time
has arrived for the government to
use its lands to lorce the reduction
of the price of fuel in this country.
British Columbia has lately
passed through hard experiances
due to the rapid decline of the
values of all of her metal productions. To meet this and aid the
mines, which are the foundation
of the country, all classes of
people have joined in endeavoring
to aid them in their efforts to continue in their operations. We find
the railway! making material reductions in their freight rates; tho
smelters reducing charges, expending large amounts of money
to cheapen costs, and the mines
themselves curtailing expenses in
every direction. The single exception seems to be the Crows
Nest Coal company, which have
announced no reduction in the
price of coal but continues charging
all the law allows, and only under
the greatest pressure have been
compelled to reduce the price of
coke from $4.50 to $4.00 per ton.
No wonder that they are urging
upon the government to make its
■election and hold the lands as a
menace to monopolies, realizing
that the menace will amount to
but little so long as the lands are
not operated.
