Running Watches
In fourteen months the balance wheel of a watch turns
on its axis (12,247,200.000) 12
billion, 247 million, 200 thousand times. It does not rest
at night like ordinary machines, but keeps at itB work
incessantly, you oil an engine
or sewing machine, but you
forget your watch. If you let
it run much longer it causes it
to clog up, and get drv and
therefore tbe fine pi-ots wear
into the jewel holes. Treat
your watch like you would any
other machine, and it will give
you good service if you let us
attend to it for you.

School Revenue is Not Adequate to Meet All Demands Made.  -*■
At the meeting ol thf city council last night Alderman Hamilton
took the chair in the absence of
Mayor Clute. The deliberations of
the council were not prolonged and
the meeting broke up at an early
hour. The principal business discussed, beyond routine, was that of
the city finances in regard to the
upkeep of the schools and the appointment of a joint committee
with the board of trade to bring up
the matter of the appropriations
for the city before the local legis-
ture.
It was pointed out that the
schools would probably run behind
some $4000 this year and that there
was no money in the treasury to
meet the deficiency. The matter
was referred to the school trustees
for their consideration.
The principal items for which
additional appropriations are
wanted are the St. Thomas wagon
road and a fund for the finishing
of the schools.

London, April 30.—An influential delegation representing the
flour importers of most of the large
cities of the United Kingdom, had
an interview with the chancellor of
the exchequer, Sir Michael Hicks-
Beach, this morning, to protest
against the taxation of flour which,
the delegates said, would seriously
affect the extent of their trade.
The chancellor in replying,
pointed out that the deputation
represented solely wheat flour, and
that it was impossible to consider
the grain and meal duties entirely
Tram that point of view. It was
impracticable, in imposing duties
on grain, to differentiate between
grains. The imports of flour compared with the imports of wheat
had grown enormously in recent
years, and he did not think it was
to the benefit of the people of the
country.
He had reduced the duty on
offals, so that the flour importers
were now better off than under the
late Mr. tiladstone's tax, and he
doubtad whether they wore entitled
to further advantages.

Sceptre Wins Two Thousand Guineas.
FAVORITE GETS THIRD PLACE
The King Was  Present-An  Outsider, Pisto!, Wins Second
Place,
London, April 30.—At the Newmarket first spring meeting today,
R. S. Siever's ten thousand guinea
filly, Sceptre,won the two thousand
guinea stakes, defeating the favorite, Mr. Gibbon's Ard Patrick, and
Mr. Siever's Duke of Westminster,
with which Sceptre will later contest in the Derby.
Pistol waB second and Ard Patrick was third. Fourteen horses
started.
The King was present and showed considerable satisfaction with
the victory of the offspring of his
horse Persimmon. J. H. Martin
rode an outsider, PiBtol, and came
in two lengths behind the winner,
while "Clem" Jenkins piloted Ard
Patrick, which finished third, three
lengths from J. R. Keen's Cheiro.
Mr. Keen's Kearsarge was also
among the runners.
The betting was four to one
against Sceptre, ten to one against
PiBtol and nine to two against Ard
Patrick.

VELVET IS
GROWING
New Machinery Found to
be Necessary by Growth
of the Mine.
It has been apparently, decided
by the Velvet mine to proceed with
its development on a greater scale
in the future than in the past, and
it is sincerely hoped that the results will be proportionately increased. Two years ago the company started operations with the
help of two English boilers, but
now finds that the power supplied
is not sufficient for the increasing
needB of the mine and it has consequently just concluded the purchase of a 100-ton bent tube Stirling water tube boiler which will
shortly be built upon the property.
The purchase was made from the
British Columbia Purchasing
agency, and is a new departure in
this district, as no boiler of this
particular class, which is manufactured in Barberton, Ohio, has
been in service here. Before the
Velvet can he reckonod among tin-
great mines of this oamp il must
bo equipped with more machinery
and that of the latest and most
modern kind. The step just taken
shows good judgement and is
doubtless thoroughly warranted by
the state of the mine.

CAPE CHINESE.
A dispatch has been lately published emanating from Vancouver
stating that some Chinese merchants in Victoria had entered into
a speculation to export Chinese
coolies, already arrived in Vancouver from China, who were to be
forwarded on to South Africa. If it
is the intention of the Cape government or the government of the
Transvaal to permit this Chinese
speculation succeeding it will certainly tend to alienate the sympathies of the whole of the west of
America, especially in British Col-
umbia,from the cause in which the
Empire is now struggling. While
it is more or less widely recognized
that the native races in South
Africa cannot be dealt with in the
same manner as have been the
aborigines of this continent, inasmuch as they are willing to work,
yet at the Bame time there is no
disposition to acknowledge the
theory that those native races can
in any way be benefitted by the introduction of Chinese competition.
The survival of the fittest may be
the theoretical doctrine of the white
race, despite the evidence to the
contrary evinced in the protection regulations existing
very generally, but there is no
reason why such a theory should
be advanced for acceptance by the
poor native, especially when that
acceptance means ultimate starvation and extinction. It is too
much for human nature whether
that nature be encased in black or
white.
The argument is all the more
cogent when it is considered that
one of the causes provoking the
present struggle for supremacy was
the illtreatment bf the natives by
the Boers and their protection by
the British. Extermination is
worse than the sjambok.
One of the most extraordinary
features of the dispatch is that the
Chinese should come this way from
China en route to the Cape. The
all sea route from China to the
Cape is under 6000 miles, whereas
}>y the roundabout journey through
Canada, that route is not less than
19,000 miles. It looks as though
the Vancouver man had a pipe
dream.
CALUMNY.
"Be thou as pure as ice, as
chaste as snow thou shalt not escape calumny," says the Stratford
bard, and indeed the "times have
given it proof." New Zealand has
struggled in the past decade from
a condition of national bankrupcy,
with a diminishing revenue and
an increasing expenditure, from a
condition of Btrife which at one
time waB perilously near civil war
to a condition without rival among
the colonies at the present. Her
consols are as high or higher than
many a nation and many a British
possession with twice her wealth,
her inhabitants have a trade per
capita greater, five times greater,
than the much vaunted hustler of
the Republic to our south, her laborers have such truBt in the courts
of their country that not a strike
has occured for eight years, her
patriotism has risen to a height
greater than that displayed by any
sister colonies, and her example is
quoted to the nations abroad. All
this is of no avail. A disgruntled
groveller on his muck heap visits
the country, BtudieB it for a few
weeks and says that capital is
.driven away, that the time of   the
laborers is consumed in trade disputes and his hours hang idle on
hands for want of work and he is
therefore a patriotic soldier. This
man is named Frank H. Shepherd
and is stated to be a well known
British Columbian. His tale is
published by the Vancouver Province, though if the editor of that
paper had cared to take down his
Whitaker's almanac for the past
year and consulted even so common a source of authority as that,
free from all partisan bias, he
would have found out that either
Frank II. Shepherd,this well known
British Columbian, or the publisher of the compendium of statistics just referred to,mustbe a lineal
descendant of a well known Biblical character mentioned in the New
Testament. On the contrary,
however, the Province takes this
utterly untrustworthy and easily
disproven string of misrepresentations as the gospel and inculcates
the lesson that the New Zealand
system is a hopeless failure. The
moral of the lesson (see itB next
issue) is that some British Columbia railway company wants some
more land.
That thiB absurd story should be
reproduced locally need create no
surprise. Similar stories were industriously disseminated last fall
and were officially contradicted
from New Zealand. It is hardly
necessary to contradict this laBt
crude effort, officially or otherwise,

The fi th annual meeting of the shareholders
of the Crow's Nest PaBS Coal company was held
in Toronto on March 7th.

operating expenses and all charge of every kind,
amounted to $207,848.39. After paying a dividend at tbe rate oi ten percent per annum, a balance of $28,142,89 was carried forward to the
credit of profit and loss.
This company's assets are their roal mines
and tbe townsi e of Fernie. Four years ago this
company had no transportation facilities, and their
stock sold as low as eleven cents per share. Today their stock is selling at $90.
The Similkameen Valley Coal company, limited, assets are coal mines, timber, water power,
agricultural and horticultural land, city water
works, electric light plant and the townsite of
Ashnola, surrounded by the following resources:
gold, copper, silver, lead, iron, lime,  fire  clay,

e the smelting center of the Similkameen valley, with a climate that is all that could be asked,
You can secure an option on this company's stock

month until fully paid, wi h non-forfeiture clause.
This price is subject to twenty-five cents advance

JUST A SMALL COMMISSION
J. Pierpont Morgan to Get 912,500,-
000 as His Fee.
London, April 30.—The Associated Press understands that J.
Pierpont Morgan gets £2,600,000
in stock of the shipping combine,
in return for his services in organizing aud finausing the combine.
Rome, April 30.—The arrest and
sentencing of the three officers and
a marine of the United States
cruiser Chicago on a charge of disorderly conduct continue to cause
a sensation here and at Venice.
The United States ambassador,
George W. L. Meyer, who was absent from Rome on an automobile
trip, hurriedly returned to this
city in an endeavor to reach some
arrangement with the Italian authorities.
Detailed reports of the trial of
the Americans say they accidentally overturned a table in the Cafe
Passe at Venice, and that they
were violently seized with the intention of having them conveyed
to a police Btation, which they resisted. Tho public prosecutor said
he did not believe the officers were
drunk, but severely criticised their
conduct in causing the disturbance.
An application for their discharge has been rejected. The
Italian law does not allow the
court to grant pardon for assaults
on the police. Some of the newspapers mention the lynchings in
the United States as sufficient reason for a refusal of royal clemency.
It is considered probable, however,
that the prisoners will be released,
by order of the King, June 1, the
date of the fete of the constitution.

London, April 30.—Hon. James

than that of last year, which totalled $17,000,000.

SimilkameenValleyCoal
[COMPANY, LIMITED.
Managing Director's and Auditor's Report.
To the President, Directors and Stockholders of the Similkameen Valley Coal Co., Ltd.
In making this, my first annual report to the Company, I must point out the plain fact that when you honored me by
appointing ine your Managing Director, the Company had out very little ready cash on hand, and I was therefore obliged not
only to manage the affairs of the Company, but also had to act as financier for your Company, which was greatly to my disadvantage. Notwithstanding these facts, with many other disadvantages, 1 have succeeded with the available and ever ready
assistance of our Hoard of Directors' in laying a foundation for the upDiiilding of a gigantic company tnat you may well be
proud of; for I know of no other company that has made a better shewing with so little capital in so short a time, taking into
consideration the numerous disadvantages that we have had to overcome; and few companies have a better standing, to say
nothing of the available assets that we have acquired within the past year. These facts are all substantiated by the books of
Company and by our auditor's report.
Now, before going into details with my report, I wish to say tint aff Jirs of this kind cannot be built up in a day, and it
would be unfair to e<p;ct it. 1 must add that in discharging my duties as Managing Director, it has been impossible to please
everyone. Since th: incorporation of the Company last August, we have made what we call a phenomenal shewing. Our
assets were at that tune 4,500 acres of coal land, approximately $;oo in cash, and about $2,000 due from original contracts
from the Syndica'e. Since then we have secured what was known as the Scott ranch, which was already platted and being
sold under the name of Copperfield by the Honorable Smith Curtis. We were obliged to take over the option then held by
him on Mr. Lamont's ranch which adjoins the town of Copperfield, in order to protect our company fr nn a competitive town-
site, and also to seeure some valuable water rights, anda most valuable smelter site. As evidence of this judgment being
good, we have already sold sufficient real estate under contract to more th in piy fnr the entire investment when this money
is all paid into the treasury. Further evifence of this judgm silt biing good is con lined in the last clauses of Mr. Blake-
more's report on our holdings in the Similkameen Valley, which is as follows:
- "Having made a thorough examination of your property, I have no hesitation in saying that you possess a valuable estate ap.irt from the question of its value as a coat mining proposition. The surface, townsite and water power you control,
must in the event of a railway passing through this district, become increasingly va'uable, and as indicated above, I consider
■"that in all respects this portion of your property is favorably situ ited with regard to any similar property in this district, although, as in all-mining adventure's there is an element of speculation I consider tiat in this case the chances are good .ind
"that you would be well advised to spend the moderate amount necessary to determine the actual character and value of your
"property." W. BLAKEMORE, Mining Engineer.
This, coupled with the fact that Mr. Blakemore is not only consulting engineer of oar Company but that he is a stockholder, should be satisfactory evidence to all concerned. Details of these transactions can be found in the books of the company with facts and figures of its costs.
The next important move of the company was the securing of the Collins' Gulch coal. The land was purchased under
the advice of our consulting engineer, from'the fact that it was the only coal land under which there was any evidence oi^bituminous coking coal. In fact, after reading Mr. Blakemore's report on our coal, any member of this company can 6ep for
himself that the Collins Gulch coal was valuable and that Mr. Blakemore considered it veiy desirable. I herewith submit his
letter tome of the 25th of February as evidence:
D. R. YOUNG, Esq., Managing Director, 4063 Dorchester St. Montreal, Feb. 25, 1002.
Similkameen Valley Coal Co., Ltd., Nelson, B. C.
My Dear Sir: Since writing my report upon your Company's property, November 20th, iqoi, an important step has
"been taken by them in acquiring the coal areas of Collins' Gulch, which I reported as containing outcroppings of bituminous
"coal. However good the prospects of discovering this class of coal underneath the seams of lignite near Ashnola, I regard
"it as a wise stroke of policy to secure the areas upon which bituminous coal has actually been discovered, as in the event of
"your explorations upon the older properties not being successful, you would still have valuable areas of this class of coal to
"fall back upon, and I cannot but consider that the position of your Company is greatly improved by thei. acquisition.
"I should also mention that information has just been received to the effect that a diamond drill which lias been operating on a coal property adjoining yours, and in the immediate vicinity of Princeton, has, after passing through one seam of
"lignite, cut a seam of bituminous coal at a depth of one hundred feet from the surface. Should the information be verified, it
may be taken as conclusive evidence that bituminous coal will be found under your property near Ashnola. I speak thus
"guardedly because I am anxious not to raise any unreasonable expectations until the thickness and quality of the coal is
actually demonstrated, but there appears to be no reason to doubt the correctness of the report as it conies from a reliable
"source. I may say further that having regard to the character of the lower measures found through the region of the
"Rockies in British Columbia, it would be an exception if any true bituminous coal found did not prove to be good coal."
Yours very truly,
W. BLAKEMORE,
Consulting Engineer to the Similkameen Valley Coal Co., Ltd.
A diamond drill has been secured jointly by our Company and the Ashnola Coal C nnpany, limited, and at the present
time being freighted to Ashnola. A siw and planing mill are already on the ground and are being put in shape to complete
the promises that we have made through the press to the public, with reference to the establishment of the city of Ashnola
These promises madejthe public are being carried out to the letter, as fast as funds are available. The Brewery Company is
already established at Ashnola and have 2000 tons of ice already-put up, preparatory to beginning operations. 1 merely mention these facts to shew that we are keeping our faith to thj public to the best of our ability and I herewith quote my assertions made, which appears in our prospectus with reference to my management.
"The present management does not intend to incur any liabilities against the Company beyond the cash on hand at any
"time to pay for same, but will proceed as fast as possible with the development of the property to the best possible advantage, using up-to-date and modern machinery. The employment of qualified and experienced help will be the motto of the
•'management."
The Company have also entered into a contract with the Ashnola Smelter Co npany, Limited, for the erection of a
smelter at Ashnola in the near tuture.
I da not deem it necessary to gi"e an exhaustive report, owing to the fact that any details or figures in connection with
the affairs of the Company can be obtained by any menber from our books, and from the fact that it would take up too much
time of this meeting. I would be pleased, however, to answer any question with reference to the affairs of tlie Company, past
present ind future. It is the intention at present to continue thc development already arranged for under the direction of
Mr. Blakemore as fast as fuids are available until transp6rtation is assured. The progress 111 ide within the past year by the
Company under its present management speaks for itself.
Cash on hand at present date $       7,245 33
Cash expended        20,742 77
Assets already secured, total       574,705 33
I defy anyone to ma'ce abetter shewing in so short a time under similar circumstances. We have not had the assistance of the public to any great extent. On the contrary we have had a great many people whom I term kickers, who have
endeavored to he best of t leir al Uity to tear us down. We can say that which no other company under the sane c nditions
can say truthfully that I know of, 11 it their credit is good at the bank for an overdraft of J2000 should we require the same.
Shew me another company that can m ike this record and I will shew you millions of stock certificates that are not worth the
paper they arc written on.
In conclusion I wish to thank the Board of Directors for the ever ready and m >st valuable manner in which they have
assisted me in discharging the duties and affairs of this Company, and on my own behalf I must say that I have discharged
my duties without fear or favor, and to the best of my ability, to the advantage of all concerned. We have completed a
bridge acress the Similkameen river at Ashnola, we have acquired the to.vnsite, we have developed some of out coal seams
sufficient to determine their value, we have completed roads to and from the important points of the Company's property, and
last, but not least, I have undertaken the amalgamation of the Ashnola Coal Company, Limited, of Toronto, and have secured their fullest co-operation with this matter, and all I hive tos ly finally is that I sincerely hope that we will all work together in the future for the advantage of all concerned, for united we stand, divided we fall.       Yours respectfully,
D. R. YOUNG, Managing Director

There was a marked general depression in Btocks all round this
morning owing doubtless to tho
utterly unfounded rumors in circulation with regard to the Le Roi
mine. That very little credence
is placed in this matter is Bhown
by the number of sales. If certain
holders were willing to let go of
their shares there were plenty of
buyers ready to take them up. Under such circumstances the depression cannot be long continued.
