NOTICE.
The World has been asked to
correct an error appearing in the
morning paper with regard to the
wagon roads and the board of
trade. A grant of $7000 was not
obtained for the construction of the
wagon road to the Velvet mine, but
was to the St. Thomas district with
the immediate result of two more
mines, the Cascade and the Bonanza, being added to the shipping
list. With regard to the other
road two grants each of $6500 have
been obtained and a Burvey made.
Nothing more haB at present been
accomplished, the blame for this
state of affairs being put upon the
government at Victoria.

suit of clothes for spring, wait until our

The strike has been settled a

in force at the other mines as before.
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
men at the present time here
than can secure employment until
a settlement has been effected with
the other mining companies.

OBSERVATIONS.
The   winding-up  order
was
made on the 13th November, 1901,
upon the petition of the British
America Corporation, limited
a nominal capital of £500,000. di
vided into shares   of   £1 each, its
objects being   to   acquire from the
British America Corporation cer
tain  mining properties in British
Columbia.
3. The first directors were:
Lord Ava, Lieut.-Col. E. Craddock
Hartopp, Major H. S. Fleming, all
of whom were appointed by the
signatories to the Memorandum
and Articles of association. Lord
Ava was killed in action in South
Africa in the early part of the year
1900, but no steps were taken to
fill the vacancy on the board caused by his death.
4. The qualification of the directors was the holding by a director
of 200 shares in the company. All
the directors appear to have been
duly qualified.
5. The remuneration of the directors was fixed by the Articles of
Association at £200 per annum
divisible among them, the chairman being entitled to an additional
£100 per annum. The total amount paid to the directors in request of such remuneration is
£1517, 3s. 4d., and further sum of
,£498, 6s. is claimed.
6. On the 24th June, 1898, a
contract was entered into between
the British America Corporation,
limited, and the company by which
the former agreed to sell to the
company the following mining
properties in British Columbia
known as the Columbia Kootenay
group: Columbia, Kootenay and
Kootenay Fraction, Tip Top, Copper Jack, and Black Eagle.
7. The purchase price was fixed
at ,£400,000, payable in fully paid
shares of the company. As additional consideration the vendor
company undertook to pay all expenses of forming the company up
to the allotment of the fully paid
shares, except the cost of registration, and to subscribe or procure
subscriptions for ,£50,000 of the
capital remaining unissued.
8. On the 27th October, 1898,
the secretary reported that thc various properties had been duly
transferred from the British America Corporation to the company.
The company had, however, no
working capital, and therefore it
depended entirely upon the British
America Corporation for meaiiB to
develop the properties.
9. According to the minutes of
a board meeting held on the 8th
February, 1900, accounts were produced shewing the expenditure
made by the British America Corporation at the mines and in London up to the 30th September,
1890, and thereupon 32,000 shares
were allotted to the British America Corporation in respect of ,£32,000
expended on the account of working capital.
10. At a board meeting held 7th
August, 1900, an agreement for the
Copper Jack was produced and executed, the purchase price being
fixed at .£350,000.
11. At the same mooting it was
resolved to lend the ,£350,000 to the
Brit isliArnericacorporation pending
arangements being made for a distribution to the shareholders, and
accordingly the purchase price
paid by the Kootenay Mining company, limited, was never received
by the company, but passed direct
to the British America Corporation.
Subsequently, however, £150,000
was handed by the British America
Corporation to the London and
Globe Finance Corporation on the
company's behalf.
12. The remaining property of
the. company in the Black Eagle,
and this, wilh the debts due from
the British America Corporation
and the London and Globe, comprises all the assets of the company.
13. The British America Corporation hold all the shares of the
company with the exception of the
directors' qualification shares and
the signatories' shares, and the
petition of thecompulsory winding-
up was presented by that corporation in order to facilitate a proper
distribution of the assets of the
company being made, and in order
to Bave needless expense by way of
directors' fees, &c.
14. The following is a summary
of the deficiency account filed with

IS ILLIBERAL.
La Patrie is pointing out with
some force in its columns that the
system of demanding a monetary
qualification for mayor and aldermen is not at all necessary to the
well being of the city. It complains
that Montreal is peculiarly unfortunately situated in this respect
being the only city on this continent whose qualifications for mayor reach the high figure $10,000 for
the mayor and $2,000 for the alderman. Baltimore puts this qualification at $3,000 for the mayor,
$500 to $300 for the aldermen.
Quebec and Halifax asked for
$2000 from both mayor and aldermen. Toronto demands $1000 and
so do Hamilton, Ottawa and St.
Jean. Winnipeg asks for $500
only.
On the other hand New York,
Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia, St.
Paul, Cleveland, Utica, Lowell,
Troy, Albany, Portland,, Me,, Pittsburg, Fall River, Springfield,
Newark, Buffalo, Toledo, Cincinnati, Milwaukee, Manchester,
Providence, Hartford,Syracuse and
JerBey City are all alike in demanding no monetary qualification whatsoever. La Patrie makeB
tho claim that these cities are no
worse governed than the cities in
the first list and declaring this to
be the case wants to know the
sense of keeping up such an illiberal law.
The remarks of our Montreal
contemporary apply equally forcibly to the condition of affairs in
this city. Mayors and aldermen
with property qualifications have
ruled this city since its incorporation and the present state of the
finances can only be equalled by
the ineptitude displayed by our
presen* set of municipal officers.
STATE  RAILWAY.
Some of the Opposition members express anxiety about the cost
of the Temiskaming railway says
the Toronto Globe. On general
grounds it is well that the cost of
any enterprise should be carefully
weighed, but in this case the anxiety is expressed because the road
is to be built by the government,
not by a company. This distinction seems to involve an error. Companies do not undertake
the building of railways from benevolent motives. They expect to
recouped from the bonuses in money or land, or both, and from the
earnings of the road. All this
will c*ome out of tlie people. The
people cannot escape tlie cost of
building the railway by handing
it over to a company. The companies are usually composed of
shrewd business men, accustomed
to calculate the cosl of such undertakings, and we may be sure that
they will always make such arrangements as will safeguard them
against loss.
The notion that once an undertaking is handed over to a private concern all public responsibility was at an end has occasioned
many abuses. Charters have been
hawked about; enterprises have
heen delayed by persons holding
franchises and not using them.
Sometimes wild and impracticable
schemes have been promoted, and
the credit of the country has suffered. In every case where a franchise of any kind is granted to a
company the matter should be examined as carefully as if a government work were being undertaken.
HOARD OF TRADE.
The board of trade presents an
interesting document to the public this year in the form of a review of tbe work accomplished
during the past year. Several
measures have been passed which
were favored by this local body
hut that it is entitled to the full
credit of this being done is a pardonable but ' hardly allowable
claim. The complaint of the
board of trade that it is somewhat
neglected by the townspeople as a
genernl body is sufficiently well
founded and the list of names published by the secretary of those
who have dropped their interest
the concern is sufficiently representative of the city to show that
the complaint is not unduly
made. However for this the board
has itself greatly to blame. The
board of trade represents the bust
nefs interests of the camp but these
interests are not the only ones or
even the chief ones concerning the
future prosperity of Rossland. This
the board has not seemed able to
grasp. If the reverse were the
case there would be need of no
other government than that of
chambers of commerce. In the
crown colonies the chamber of
commerce is always allowed one or
two representatives out of a body
of six to a dozen legislative advisors of the governor. This is a fair
estimate of the. preponderance gf
opinion that such bodies ought to
be allowed, at all events on British
precedent. But when such a body
starts out to arbitrate between the
warringintereste|of capital and labor
unasked and purely gratuitously
any gratitude that might be felt
for the kindness of heart, unmoved
by seeming self interest, is at once
submerged when the oflice of arbitrator, unratified, is immediately
changed to that of accuser. A
charge was made that the union
men were cozened into a strike by
illegal means was brought by this
self appointed arbitrator that has
fallen to the ground through endorsement after end»re'T__ienl '>y
the great body of union labor. It
is this kind of conduct which
makes the board of trade the unpopular, and therefore untepreBen
tative, body that it is today. Despite the good work that has been
accomplished and there has been
much of it, for these reasons, as the
secretary's report only too plainly
shows, the confidence of the general community, or even of any one
class, remains unplaced with our
local quidnuncs. A little pruning
of excessive zeal, a little more unselfishness, may rehabilitate a
spectable body.

the one that most particularly
recommends this gift to the public,
is that there is absolutely no necessity for it. Mackenzie and Mann

wihout any subsidy whatsoever.

A PACIFIC CABLE
Will  Join   Canada With
Australasia.
TO BE LAID EARLY THIS YEAR
Description of the Work to be Undertaken — Muirhead's New
Duplex System,
The actual work of laying the
British Government Transpacific
cable connecting Australia with the
home country via Canada will be
begun early in the present year.
The manufacture of the various
cables is well in hand. The Telegraph Construction and Maintenance company of Greenwich,
London, is carrying out the contract. In order to complete the
work within the specified time, the
company is building a new cable-
laying steamer which will be the
largest cable-laying vessel afloat.
The total length of the cable, including 10 per cent allowed for
"slack," will be about 8000 nautical miles. The longest span is
that from Bantield Creek, on the
west coast of Vancouver Island, to
Fanning Island, about 3561 miles.
The shorter sections are from Fan
ning Island to Suva, Fiji, 2093
miles; from Fiji to Norfolk Island,
9G1 miles; from Norfolk Island to
a point near Brisbane, Australia,
834 miles; and from Norfolk island
to the northern end of New Zealand, 537 miles.
Tlie time taken by an electrical
pulsation to pass through a submarine cable increases with the
length of the cable in proportion
to the square of its length. I hat
is to say, if it takes the signal one
second to travel 1000 miles, it will
take four seconds to travel 2000
miles, nine seconds to travel 3000
miles, and so on. But the. speed
also depends on the dimensions of
the "core" and its insulation gutta
peroha or india rubber. A thicker
copper wire and coating of guttapercha gives a higher speed.
The Vancouver to Fanning Island section of the imperial cable
will be "fast," owing to its heavy
core, which weighs about G50
pounds of copper and 400 pounds
of gutta percha per mile. Such a
cable will cairy seven or eight paying words per minute, and as it is
the longest section, this will be the
speed of "through" messages. For
the shorter spans of the line smaller cores will suffice.
The messages will be received on
the "siphon recorder" and "mirror
instrument" of Lord Kelvin. The
"duplex" system of Dr. A. Muir-
head, by which two messages, one
from each end, will be employed
on thc southern sections, at least.
Although this system nearly
doubles the capacity of a cable, it
is not considered so advantageous
for this cable as for others, owing
to the fact that only a few business
hourB in th6 day are common to
Great Britain and Australasia.
Two repairing ships will be retained to maintain the cable in
working order. There is Bome fear
of earthquakes or landslides breaking the cable in the direction of
Fiji. .Not long ago the Eastern
Telegraph company's cable between
Sydney and Nelson was bitten by
a shark, in 300 fathoms of water,
and so injured that it had to be recovered and a splicing made.

Absurdity of the Railway
Bill Now Placed Before
the Country.
Some advocates of the'land grant
system of aiding railway construction advance the argument that
the province may as well give the
land away as pay cash subsidies,
because the land is worthless for
agricultural purposes to the province. This argument cannot be
advanced in  this case.     It is dis-

Diamond Drill Prospecting
to Commence.
KETTLE RIVER COAL COMPANY
Favorable Rcports Made—Description of the Fields to be
Exploited.
Prospecting with a diamond
drill will be commenced this spring
on the coal lands of the British
Columbia company, situated on
the north fork of the Kettle river,
00 miles north of Grand Forks.
It is the intention to bore nt different points through the coal strata
to a depth of 500 feet: The company, which was recently incorporated, owns a tract of 15.000 acres.
Besidts several stringers, a three-
foot and a six-foot vein of bituminous coal have been exposed. An
analysis at the Granby smelter
showed samples of the coal to contain an average of 73 per cent
fixed carbon on, equal it is said,
to the product of the Crow's Nest.
The directors include J. Fred
Hume, ex-minister of mines, W.
A. Macdonald, K. C, Robert Robertson and J. Laing Stocks, of Nelson, IJ. C, and Geo. A. Fraser of
Grand Forks.   The capital of the
tinctly stated in the dispatch  that, , ,

away for the construction of a railway and pay $4000 and $4500 in
cash per mile besides; a total

all this admittedly valuable and
expensive area of farming land,

Among the amendments that
have been discussed by some of the
members of the legislative assembly, says the Victoria Colonist, as
being likely to be introduced at the
present session, is one that will affect the Municipal act. Its object
is to extend what is known as the
''one ward" system to elections in
the rural municipalities of the
province wherever the people might
be desirous of adopting it. For
some time past this matter has
been one of the questions much
discussed in the city of Vancouver, I *^
while in New Westminster it has
been for some years in operation
and it is Baid that il has there
worked out very satisfactorily indeed. It provides for the voting of
the whole of the electorate of the
corporation for each member of the
council just as at the present time
they all decide who shall be mayor.
It is urged that the change would
greatly advance the interests of the
municipalities by breaking up the
small cliques and family factions
now so dominant in municipal
affairs, that it would knit the various sections into a more homogenous whole, and lead to the return at the polls of men who had
the interests of the municipality ftt
heart rather than simply the good
of some Bmall fraction thereof,

In explanation of the rebate
given by the Anglo-American and
Equity Insurance companies to the
city their local agent says that in
the first place the old line companies were not willing to take the
business under three per cent, and
the newer companies, which are
not in the union, offered to do so
for two-and-a-half per cent. This
offer was accepted by the school
trustees, whereupon the old line
agents declared their willingness to
take the business for two-and-one-
eighth per cent. The offer came too
late, aB the agreement had been
signed. The successful competitors,
howeven, came to the conclusion
that they also could do lmsine"
on that basis and volumtuiiy made
a rebate of three-eights of one per
cent, and gave a cheque accordingly.

HOCKEY MATCH.
NalHon     <<oc.l    Down   Before      the   Ke-
doilbtuhle Players or Sandon.
Sandon, March G.—The home
team beat the Nelson players at
the hockey match here last night
by a score of 11 to 4. There was
much excitement over the match
and feeling was evenly divided,
much money being staked on the
event. The Sandon players
thought themselves the better
team but the defeat they suffered
at Rossland hail dimmed the lustre of their reputation which has
now been fully redeemed by the
crushing nature of the defeat they
inflicted on their over confident
opponents.

Kind friends, don't turn from me
or take my ads. away;
Read on a little further and see
what I have to say:
Once I was happy the same as you.
But now I a cripple, with  nothing
to do.
I am forced to ask strangers some
assistance to give,
So, pray give me something—live
and let live.
