First Year's Officers.
The first meeting of the Progres
sive party of the province to be
held in this city was called to order
last night by John McLaren, president of the Trades and Labor
Council of this city in the Miners'
Union hall. Owing to the joint
meeting on the same evening of the
city council and school trustees on
the burning question of the moment
in Rossland, the shutting down of
the schools owing to an alleged
lack of funds, the attendance at
the meeting was not as large as it
would have been otherwise.
The business of the evening was
the election of officers, the drafting
of bylaws and the local organization
of an association of the new party.
Aleo its consideration of the Kamloops platform.
The platform itself was adopted
b, .he meeting with no dissent to
its planks which were evidently in
full accord with the sentiments of
those present. Any lingering
doubt that might hive entertained
in this regard was swept aside by a
magnificent speech by Christoper
Foley, the old Btandby.
The Independent Labor party
was brought formally to an end,
and was merged into the newer and
wider political organization.
The following officers were elected for the year to come: Christopher Foley, president; W. R.
Baker, vice-president and Rupert
ISulmer, secretary.
No attempt was made by the
meeting to touch the question of
bylaws beyond appointing a committee to draft the same, consisting

of the following members: Chris
Foley, W. R. Baker, R. Bulmer
and H. W. Falconer. TheBe will
report at the next meeting which
will take place on Tuesday night
next, at Miners' Union hall.
The first resolution to be adopted
by the new association, after an interesting speech in its support by
Thomas Brownlee, dealing with
the lead question in the Slocan and
incidentally with questions of the
freight rates and smelter charges
and their inimical effect upon the
mining industry of the Kootenays.
Its full text is subjoined:
"Whereas, the silver-lead industry of the Kootenay is a very great
factor in the upbuilding of the
province, and
WhereaB it is now practically
non-productive, which means a
sreat loss in wageB, interest in investment of capital and stagnation
of business in general throughout
the lead producing portion of the
Kootenays, and
Whereas.certain resolutions by a
very few persons in this city of
Rossland have been passed with a
view to remedy the evil, which this
meeting is not in harmony with,
and
Whereas, this meeting believes
"that said resolution was inspired
by the Canadian Pacific Railway
Smelter company in order to get
another one hundred thousand dollars of the people's money for nothing, and
Whereas, this meeting of the
Provincial Progressive party be-
lieveB that the province holds the
remedy within itself by enacting
into a law the third plank of the
Kamloops platform; therefore be it
Resolved, that this meeting demand legislation at the earliest
date possible on the lines of the
third plank of the platform bo as
to relieve the stagnation in the
silver-lead industry of this province.    Be it further
Resolved, that the provincial
legislature be requested to at once
inquire into the causes of the difference in prices of lead oro between
the Kootenays and the Coeur d'
Alene, and also the reasons why
producers of lead in liritiBh Columbia »rn compelled to pay a transportation charge of %J per hundred, and to use their good ollices,
through moral suasion-, with a view
to a reduction in transportation
charges in all materials used in
Bmelting and refining lead, and
also to get the tariff on all material used for smelting and refining
lead wiped out if possible, or reduced to such an extent as to place
the producer of lead in Canada on
an equality  with the   producer of
Practically the upshot of the
meeting between the city council
and the school trustees last night
was an ultimatum that an answer
muBt be given categorically to the
trustees within 48 hours as to
whether the funds for the keeping
up of the schoolBduring the remainder of the year was not to be provided by the council or not.
The meeting was well attended
ed by the public. Usually spectators are conspicuous by their absence from the deliberations of the
council, but despite of the interesting discussion going on at the same
time at Miners' Union hall on the
formation of a local association of
the Progressive party there were
numbers of interested citizens present.
The argument presented by the
city council was ably Bummed up
by .flTlderuian Hamilton, ile poin!
out that the estimated expenditure
for the year was $77,000 and that
the estimated revenue was $46,000
to which could be added an additional $10,000 accruing from the
water revenues which this year are
apparently not to be expended
on capital account.
This left a deficit of $20,000 including a deficit of $4000 between
the revenue and expenditure, estimated, of the schools.
Trustee A. C. Gait regretted thc
probable closing down of the
schools under the circumstances
and thought that if any money of
the general revenue was handed
over to the school to make up its
deficit that such action would be
illegal. He said that the action
of the government in placing an
ill advised two per cent mineral
tax upon the output of the Rose-
land mines had discouraged mining and that consequently the
finances of (lie city were in ban
shape. The shutting down of the
schools would have thiB effect that
the government would probably
be led to consider the errors of its
ways.
TruBtee P, II. McDonald said
that thc question of deficit should
have been considered at the beginning of the year. The estimate of
the school expenditure had been
presented before the council had
voted any moneys. Moneys could
be obtained if the council would
give up a part of its personal honorarium. If money was forthcoming for other purposes it should be
forthcoming for the schools. He
believed that the city was bound
to maintain the schools if the trustees said so and for his own part
he would not allow the schools
to be closed until a pubiic meeting
had been called and the people had
declared   themselves   in   favor of
that if everybody gave up their Bal-
arieB it would not help the schools
as a deficit of $13,500 had to be
met before a cent could be applied
to school purposes.
It was finally arranged that the
finance committee should again reconsider the matter and advise, if
possible, some means of keeping
open the schools, reporting to the
trustees through the mayor tomorrow evening. Until that timo
no further steps are to be taken.
During thia discussion, which
lasted well on to 11 o'clock, a reference was made to the lack of
proper quarantine by Trustee McDonald which brought Dr. Reddick
to his feet. He declared that the
trustees not himself should have
kept the schools clean, and seen
that they were fumigatedjbofore reopening, but was afterwards willing to accept hr.'! thi rospo! ptbilitv
on the matter. As to the non-
quarantine of houses he knew
nothing of it, and consider the
public derelict in their duty as citizens in not bringing it to his
notice. Even after the house was
quarantined he had no means of
preserving that quarantine beyond
trusting to the honor of those quarantined except that he placed
guards, two to each house at a cost
apiece of $8 per diem. This was
too expensive a course to pursue.
The   discussion   was stopped by
Mayor Clute calling him  to order.

NEW   WATCHWORD
"The World Against Britain"
has been the watchword of Europe
for years past. When Britain
adopts as the watchword "Britain
Against the World" and applies it
to her commercial interests the
true era of greatness of th'e British
Empire will have begun.
With colonies that can provide
her population with breadstuff*
and her surplus population with
homes, a protective tariff againEi
all the world, save her colonies,
would provide a growing market
for her manufacturers.
Wilh one part of the Empire de
pending on the building up of tht
other, the grandest part of imperial
federation would be anaccomplish-
ed fact, and she could laugh to
scorn those envious rival who have
so long fattened on her too generous trade policy.—Toronto Tele
gram.
A BRIGHT OUTLOOK.
Some people have taken exception
to the Woiu.d's statement that there
was every possibility of this camp
shipping before any very considerable lapse of time its million tons of
oro a year,and want to know whence
it iB coming. It may be taken for
granted that neither the miner nor
the mineowner has any such criticism to offer or question to ask.
Those classeB of gentlemen are conversant with the facts, It is purely a question of just how cheaply
the ore can be mined, smelted and
marketed. The ledges on the Le
Roi have not grown any larger or
any smaller during tho years that
mine has been worked, In the old
days when copper was low and
. smelting excessively expensive, the
character of Rossland rock being
little understood, the ore had to be
very carefully sorted, and it. would
only pay under suoh condition-? to
open up those parte of the ledge
which ran fairly high. This
made expensive mining.as much of
the ledge matter had to be left un
touched. As conditions grew better, copper went up, smelting grew
leas expensive, freights diminished
and things began to look roseate in
general, more and more of the ledge
was worked and mining grew less
expensive. Tho mines put in costly machinery which still farther
lowered the cost of production and
ledges which could before not be
touched were then worked at a
profit.
It ifl inevitable lhat as time
goes on that tho government will
be mado to see that the mineral
tax as applied is iniquitous, that
oilier coal areas will lie opened,
that lhe Crow's Nest Coal company
will find ilself not the only pebble
on the beach and the C. P. R. and
Jim If ill not lhe only railways in
the province, and that the cost of
freighting and smelling the ore
will become even less expensive.
More and more will then be sent
away from the camp, moro and
more ledges will be opened. Hundreds of men will be employed
where now there are but tons.
Again in another direction there
is light. The new Crofton smelter
is said lo be about to experiment
on a new system of reduction that
will make refractory ore3,only carrying one per cent of copper, profitable Here again is another cut.
Further, concentration will be employed largely and herein is again
a further cut. And in the question
of coke, so important a theme to
this cu mp,light is already dawning.'
There is a proposition to have the
ore of this camp treated wholly
within the bounds of British Columbia. It would after all only
mean the transportation of the
machinery of the Northport smelter
up the river a few miles. It would
be an expensive change of course
but it would not take very many
thousands of tons of coke at a
difference of $4 per ton in the
price to making it an eminently
payable one. Of course the Crow's
NTe3t company may supply the
joal, but if the government open
up the coal fields at Michel it is
more than probable that it will
have to supply it. And it will also
have to like taking a 30 per cent
profit where now it is getting over
100 per cent.
Government refineries will come
in time and if private enterprise
fails to see that by hogging the
whole tiling il is hurting the mining industry they will come all the
quicker.
Today there are working in the
camp nearly 1000 men. Within a
year there ought to be double the
number, and wilhin five, ten times.
Every public body should work to
this end, and every citizen. But
let peace be among us and then
present an united front to combat
adverse circumstances.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The only way to resist a steamship combination is to control the
railways. If discrimination on
land is permitted, competingsteam-
ers can be deprived of business and
thus driven off the routes. Ocean
iraflic will always become compel itive if discrimination on land
is prohibited.—Toronto Globe.
In the same evening the same
alderman informs his fellow councillors that the school children
must have a tide walk no matter
what the expense and later that if
every official in the city were to
give his services free for the remainder of the year there would
not be sufficient money to pay for
the schools. Then how is it there
exists sufficient mdney to'builil a
sidewalk?

The fi th annual meeting of the shareholders
of Ihe Crow's Nest Pass Coal company was held
in Toronto on M>r.h7th.
Thf net profits of the year after paying all
operating expPns'S and all charge of every kind,
amounted to $207,848.89, Ader paying a dividend Kt the rate often percent per annum, a balance of !f2S,142,.89 wus carried forward to the
credit of profit nnd loss.
This company's assets are their coal mines
and t'e townsi e of Fernie. Four years ago this
company ha 1 r.o transportation facilities, and their
st ck Fold as low as eleven cents per share. Today their slock is selling at $90.
The Similkameen Valley Coal companv, limited, asset n are coal mines, timber, water piwer,
agricultural and horticultural land, city water
w rks, electric; light plant and the townsite of
Ashnola, surrounded by the following resources:
gold, copper, silver, lead, iron, lime, tire clay,
platinum, and a fine slockraising country, and it

English Strongly Against
Shipping Combine.
LONDON PRESS IN OPPOSITION
Soothing. Words are  Not Accepted
—Revolt Against Money
Expected.
London, May 14.—Notwithstanding the statement of the High t
Hon. T. W. I'irrie at lhe Canadian
club dinner last night that there
waa no justification for Englishmen
looking wilh apprehension on what
was taking place, there is a tone of
uneasiness and anxiety in every
one of this morning's editorials on
the shipping trust.
Most of the papers agree that the
White Star Line ha3 been bought,
lock, stock and barrel. Thc Standard fears thut Mr. Morgan's action
may be creating a precedent.
What, it sayB, is to prevent the
process which is applied to the
White Star Lino from being extended to the British Meets, the Peninsular A Oriental, th" Orient, the
Union, Castle and the rest.
The Morning Post anticipates
a revolt of English people against
tyranny and against money, and
the Chronicle sums up the situation in Mr. Carnegie'3 words. "It
is dividends that count."
The Daily News regards the affair as a memorable humiliation
for a great sea-going power.

NEW FERNIE COAL COMPANY
Area Near Blairmore Secured By Eastern Capitalists.
The largo coal area near Blairmore in which V. Hyde Baker of
Cranbrook and T. G. Proctor and
R. E. Fishburn of Nelson, are interested, has been secured by eastern parties and active development
work will be inaugurated at  once.
The deal, it is understood, is a
large one and will give to these
gentlemen ample returns for their
investment; in fact, such a Bum
that will make thom feel good
that they got in to coal land business.—Moyie Leader.

The Trade Dollar shaft is   now
clown 292 feet and probably by this
day week it will   be deep enough
to begin cutting out a   station   for
the 300 foot level.
The Gold Ledge tunnel is in
9G0 feet, the last GO feet having
driven by Sam Kerr and his men
since he took the contract to drivo
the tunnel to the ledge.
The Washington and Great
Northern people have found it necessary to lengthen their side track
to reach the Lone Pine ore bins,
and some alterations are under
way.
The crosscut on the quartz of the
Golden Lion-Little Four vein on
the west side of Granite creek is in
past 40 feet from the first timbers
at the entrance. It has passed
through the vein into bluish gray
porphyry, both in the hanging and
footwall.
The ground developed in sinking the Silver Dollar shaft has undergone a marked change since
a week ago. The shaft is down 45
feet and has passed through glacial
drift into silt, that might produce
placer gold; it is quite possible,
however, that it will enter the reg
ular country formation before lorjg
and the south extension of the
Trade Dollar vein may be soon encountered, possibly without either
crosscutting or using the diamond
drill.

London, May 14.—A Standard

recrudescence of Boxer activity in

marked. The movement is extending, and attacks have once again

missionaries. Governor Yuang
Shi Kai's troops have so far entirely failed to suppress the rising,

This Time it is New Zealand Capturing New
York Market.
New York, May 14.—A consignment of refrigerated New Zealand
spring lamb in excellent condition,
which has been shipped via London, has been sold in New York
at the same price as American
lamb, notwithstanding the charges
for transportation and storage and
and the import duty which the
consignment were obliged to pay.
The consignees say that the consignment was an experiment,
which has been successful, and
that as a result further shipments
will be made in 1903.

A PUZZLE.
Two men began business,
Down on the levee;
One furnished the muscle,
And one tbe monee.
The one with muscle
Toiled outside with hooks;
The one with the cash
Stayed in and kept books.
On Saturday night
The muscular "jay"
Came into the ollice
And drew his week's pay.
The financi 11 man
His profit's looked o'er,
And the next Monday miming
He hired two more.
In a vert short time
He employtd it score,
And soon wuh working
A hundn d or more,
His earnings increased
As his number of men;
For each dollar paid Iheltl
His profit was ton,
He soon had a ship
Of his"own on the sea,
Built a house on the hill—
They live near the levee.
He has warehouses and factories
And money besides;
HiB employes are pool —
Of want some have died.
Now the question I ask,
Whence came all thc gain?
Is it the product of labor,
Or the earning of brain?
If of labor, then why not
Give each man his share?
If of brain, then what use
To have labor there?
If of both, then why there
Should difference be
Between earnings of muscle
And brain, I can't Bee.

an important strike on the Imperial and Eva groupB has been received here, which will give an
added value to the stock in that
company. For some time past the
company has been engaged in sinking a winze on a nice showing of
ore which came into one of the tunnels. This showing has always
been highly regarded by the management.
When the winze was started upon the values were inconsiderable,
but in the 70 feet that has been
sunk the ore body has steadily improved. The best showing upon it
waB encountered this week when
the men broke into a body fully

Martin's Opposition to Land Grants
Too  Much  for 'the
Premier.
There was a full meeting of the
city council last night ami hefore
it got down to the issue between it
and the school truBteeB it transacted a little routine business.
Mayor Chile referred back the
sidewalk resolution anent the
school at the western end of the
city to the council and it was again
voted upon with the result that it
was turned down for this year at
any rate by the mayor's casting
vote. The aldermen who voted in
favor of the sidewalk, despite the
fact that there waB no money for
the. schools themselves and a total
estimated deficit of $20,000 were
Aldermen McKenzie, Daniel and
Embleton. ThoBe against were
Aldermen Hamilton, Armstrong
and Dunlop.
The council also received a depu- j
tation from the Presbyterian church
and listened to A. J.  Macdonald j
and J. H. Robinson   as to the re- j
quest of the church  that as lhe |
city had taken   a   portion   of tLe
church land without compensation
or permission and had altered the
grade of the road  originally   set
that the city would bear half of the
coBt of building   a  retaining  wall
and (light of  stepB,  now rendered
necessary by this action  on the
part   of   the city,  which   would
cost in all between $300 and *1COO.
The council promised  to  take the
matter under consideration.

yesterday, and it now looks ns if
the issue will be one of physical
endurance between the government
supporters and the members of the
opposition. Nothing further is
heard of the conference between
Premier Dunsmuir and McBride,
the opposition leader, and in the
house the members of the opposition have settled down to their
old tacticB of obstruction.
By applying the closure laBt
evening the government got into
committee of supply, but they had
only succeeded in getting one vote
through before the house was compelled to rise. In the session today
the opposition had no difliculty i n
keeping the government from
reaching the committee stage until
the speaker saw 6 o'clock. If this
policy is persisted in the government will be forced to keep the
house in committee until the estimates are cloBed up, or else be content to prolong the session all summer.
The only thing which will tell
against the opposition in a campaign of the kind is the anxiety of
farmer members to get back to
their farms. They are generally
farmers first and politicians afterwards, and have been rather restive for some time past.
The report is again current that
the government will abandon its
railway policy. This, it is understood, will involve the withdrawal
of all the railway bills which provide for the granting of laud subsidies. This is the point upon
which Martin has taken issue with
the government.
