Sir Richard Stewart, in charge ui
the remount service of the British
army, arrived in this city last
night. Upon being shown a telegram from New Orleans to the effect that Governor Heard of Louisiana had reported to the state department at Washington that the
British government is maintaining
a military camp at New Orleans in
violation of the neutrality law, the
general declared that, although he
had juBt left New OrleanB, he knew
nothing whatever of the existence
of such a camp.
General Stewart stated that he

Delarey, Kemp and other leaders
vainly attempted to persuade their
men to renew the action. Fifteen
hundred Boers participated in the
engagement, but they had suffered
too heavily and cleared away
to the northwest and south. The
British   losses   were   also   severe.
The Canadian Rifles especially
distinguished themselves, one party
commanded by Lieut. Bruce Carruthers, holding its post until

The forces showed great steadiness,
allowing the Boers to advance within 200 yards of them and repelling
them with steady rifle tire."

The beach front between Illinois

were situated in tho district visited
by yesterday's conflagration, there
remains standing the unburned
portion of Windsor hotel, at the
Hoard walk and Illinois avenue,
and the charred frame work of the
Rio Crande hotel on New York
avenue. Between these two structures lies a blackened waste, scarcely a stick being left lo identify any
one of the numerous buildings destroyed by the fire. The shell of
the Academy of music remains
standing, and this is notable, as
the theatre was the only brick
building in the burned area.

SMALLPOX ENQUIRY.
At a meeting of the Liberal association last night it was determined
that an enquiry should be instituted in the manner in which
smallpox^as been introduced into
this camp, and a committee was
appointed to carry out the desires
of the association.
Whatever may be the result of
the labors of these gentlemen it is
self-evident that the matter will
bear enquiring into. Yesterday
there appeared a letter in the Nelson Miner declaring that the disease was wholly due to lack of
cleanliness, and that nothing more
was necessary aB a preventative
than cleanliness of person and surroundings. This is no doubt the
truth as faraff it goes, but it is not
all the truth. Take two countries
India and China which illustrate
the two conditions of vaccination
and non-vaccination. In the firBt
where vaccination is systematic and
thorough, what cases of smallpox
do occur are light, and not dissimilar to the character of the dis
ease prevalent in this country
where practice of vaccination has
attenuated the disease i» cnma
., uoie tne opposite prevails smallpox
claims hundreds of victims yearly
and a deeply pockmarked individual, a rare sight here nowadays, is
is only too commonly to be seen,
But in thiB connection it must be
remembered that Jenner never
claimed otherwise t.Vw« .."^oino*^"
attenuated the disease, not that it
it gave an immunity from it, merely given an immunity, practically
certain,from death from this cause.
But such vaccination as is carried on at Northport is a farce and
does harm to the health department of Canada. Where Dr.
Montizambert has his ideas incompetently carried out he cannot be
surprized if critics point to
these faults and condemn the
whole By stem. The practice in
Northport, aB can be testified to by
any person passing through, is to
scratch the arm with an instruu ent
and pass a vaccine tube over the
wound, passing straight on to tha
next person without any care to
guard against the introduction of
disease. More than this whole
classes of persons, as has been
teBtified in the Bossland courts,
have been allowed to pass on merely
saying that they were to work at
the mines upon the hill or that
their fathers or brothers or husbands were so employed. Moreover actual attempts were made to
refuse to recognize any other certificate but those issued by Dr.
Sinclair. All these and many
other things deserve investigation
for if the system be not properly
carried out there can be no confidence displayed by the public, and
drastic measures Buch as Dr. Montizambert advocateB will be worse
than useless. The fault rather lies
with his department than with the
public.
CHEAP MINING.
There is a class of critics of this
city who say that there have been
thousands of dollars poured into
this camp, and that there has been"!
very little realized so far. The
criticism is about as just as to say
that becauae a million dollars had
been spent in the erection of a gigantic skyscraper that the money
should be paid back within the
first year or two. In the old country the purchase money of land is
from 10 to 20 times the rent. In
the east the proportion between the
two is less, but nowhere except of
a mining country is it expected
that returns within the first year
or so should immediately pay for
the expenditure. Nobody charges
as a yearly rent the original cost of
the house as a regular thing. If
he divides his original cost over a
term of ten years and gets it he is
doing very well.
Mining is very much the same
description of thing, especially
where low grade, and large sumB of
money must be spent on costly
machinery to obtain the necessarily lur^o output without which
the mines cannot be made to pay.
But it is idle to expect that this
machinery can be erected and installed, and at the same time substantial dividends paid. If the
shareholders are not called upon to
pay the cost of the machinery
needed and this is met out of current profits, such as has been tbe
case with several of the Rossland
mines, they ought to consider
themselves to be in luck.
What this machinery will do iB
shown by the general manager's
report on the Le Roi, where it is
shewn that the cost of hoisting of
the ore from the ^mine and putting
it into the cars has been reduced
from $2.75 to 61 cents, a cut of
over $2 per ton. But before regular dividends can bo expected the
mines must be got into running
order, Now this was hardly effected in this camp when came the
strike and the drop in copper, and
between the two the shareholders
have felt themselves badly used,
and are saying so. Under present
conditions the fall in copper could
hardly have been avoided, certainly not by this country, and it must
be taken as one of the chances in
business which are always presenting themselves untowardly. The
earns may be said of the Btrike
which, just so long as society will
not recognize that labor is acting
from a high sense of urinciDle as
well as from a selfish motive, is
hardly likely to be remedied, except with the strong Jmnd. But
there is absolutely no doubt that
with tho passing of theseconditions.
tvuiun are merely temporary, the
camp will enter into an era of
prosperity which will see but few
shadows.
Now just as has been shewn a
saving of $2 per ton has been
effected in the handling of the ore,
so a similar saving can be effected
in the smelting of the ore in the
price of coke, and also a consider
able reduction in the method of
smelting itself and of the rate of
freight upon ore transportation.
Had the Le Roi been sending away
its ore at the old cost of handling
it would have coBt d uring 1901
nearly half a million dollars. Tbat
is to say enough for a ten per cent
dividend. The difference in the
price of copper, five centB on a
basis of 1^ per cent is equivalent
on 200,000 tons to cover a quarter
million dollars. What the strike
has coBt cannot well be be estimated, but what can be shown is
that the raise of 50 cents per day
in the wages of 150 muckers for
300 working dayB would only have
amounted to $22,500, a mere flea
bite in comparison, which would
have been met by the reduction of
10 cents per ton on the freight of
tho ore.
The inevitable conclusion is that
with the restoration of conditions
as they were, the mines will pay
dividends as they have in the past,
when they were being gophered for
the richer paystreakB, and that
with the reduction of prices four or
five times the present number of
mines w'll be brought wilhin the
list of shippers. There is only one
thing to do, which is to make peace
and with the strength of the undivided people proceed to effect those
alterations necessary to the well
being of Rossland.

A COMMISSION
Proposal to Abolish Railway Committee.
INDICTMENT BY THE CITIZEN
Strong Reasons Why the Committee Should be Done Away
With,
HOW IT WAS DONE.
Land Tax In New Zealand Ousts Large
Holders.
Liberalism dominates the railway
committee at Ottawa says the Citizen. The government which dictates
the make-up of the railway committee and chooses itB chairman is
tho government which would create a railway commission.
The railway committee, under
the chairmanship of Hon, James
Southerland, persistently and continuously betrayed public rights.
The railway committee under C.
S. Hyman, M. P., has shown that
it is still doing business at the old
stand by its suppression of the
Lancaster cattle-guard bill.
The railway committee should
be abolished. The affairs which
it always settles to the satisfaction
of the railway companies are
more important than the business
which parliament talks about.
Legislation should be accepted or
rejected in the broad daylight of
parliamentary discussion and
should not be quietly done to
death by the railway committee.
The railway committee room is
an ambush from which corporation Tories and corporation Liberals can assassinate measures for
the protection of public rights
without going on record as the
enemies of public rights.
The government which is content to have its ideals of justice
to the public represented by the
railway committee is not likely to
create a railway commission which
will afford much relief to the people. The country's great need at
Ottawa is not new waoL.;«»u»j. v,,it „
new class of men. So long as tho
people are content to elect sympathizers with the railways which
give them passes, so long will the
country deserve to get the sort of
cold justice which is dealt out by
the railway committee.
The New Zealand land tax
is a tax on land value and also a
graduated tax. The first law
passed in relation to land was in
1870. It provided that not more
than 320 acres could be sold by a
land officer to any individual. But
thiB did not prevent one individual
from buying of another. Next
came the land tax, quickly followed by the graduated income tax.
Now if a man's land is worth less
than $5000 a certain rate is paid;
if worth more than $5000 a certain
rate is paid, and so on. The result
was that such men as "ready
money" Robinson, who had acquired a hundred thousand acres,
had to sell ninety-nine  thousand.
ARE GLASS LAWS

COSMOS. sod
For high-grade whiskey go to the International Liquor Store.
HOW  IT   WAS   ACCOMPLISHED
No Force Was Used  but a   Boycott
Did the Trick.
According to the late census report there were 1389 Chinamen in
Colorado in 1890. This number
wasreducedto 599 in 1900. We
present these figures to show that
if the Chinamen are not wanted
here they can be disposed of without the use of force, as within the
last ten years there has certainly
been no forceful means used to get
rid of them, and yet there are only
only about half as many of them
here now as there was in 1890.

The coal miners' act provides for
working the coil mines with health
and safety to the miners, and prevents women and boys from working in coal mines.
The last session of the New Zealand parliament passed the old age
pensions to all over 65 years who
have lived in the nation for 25
years and are of good character,
and do not possess $2700 worth of
property, or enjoy an income of
$5 per week. The pension provides for $90 per yeai, or $180 for
a couple, man and wife. It is
thought this will be increased at
the next session.

The war office has approved the

is nineteen ounces lighter and its
barrel is five inches shorter, but
it has the same range as the rifle
now in use.

HIGH   GRADE    BESSEMER   ORE
Developments    Lying     Before
Kitchener Iron Mines.
the
Speaking of the character and
importance of the recently opened
iron mines at Kitchener, the New
York E, & M. Journal says: "The
Kitchener ore, so far as developed, is a high grade besbemer ore so
situated that it can be smelted on
the spot or transported without
very great cost or difficulty to furnaces in the coast region of British
Columbia, or to the vicinity of the
coal mines and coke ovens of the
Crow's Nest Pass country. One of
the latter alternatives seems the
more probable, if the analogy of all
modern practice is to hold good;
since it is tho almost universal
custom at present to carry the ore
to the fuel rather than the fuel to
the ore. The important point is
that when the time comes to build
up an iron industry to supply the
Pacific Coast and the export trade
to the east—which may not be far
distant—thc raw materjal will not
be lacking, and it seems reasonably
certain that it will be among the
best of the kind.."

Carbon, Wyo, April 4.—The fire
which has been smouldering in the
old No. 2 coal mine of the Union
Pacific here, has broken out a fresh
and a force of men are now engaged in walling up the mouth of the
fan shaft through which the smoke
and J--~oa are issuing.
About 20 years ago  a   o..„   wa8
started in No. 2 and being unable
to control it the company walled
up the shaft. At intervals of two
or three years the fire has broken
out in new places and for five
consecutive years it burned steadily. The fire has undermined the
country for a radius of half a
mile and miners say it will probably burn for an indefinite period.
