Victoria, July 25.—Yesterday
was argued before Chief Justice
Hunter and Justices Walkem,
Drake and Irving, three questions,
the gist of which are as follows:
1. Can a voter be registered outside of the province?
2. If so, who may administer the
oath?
3. May the lieutenant-governor
authorize a collector of votes to receive affidavits made by voters outside of the province, and place
their names on the register of
votes?
These questions are supposed to
be relative to government agents
and officials absent on duty.
The full oourt answered all the
questions in the affirmative.

the other to show hiB legality. But

The Conservatives showed their
sagaoity last evening in throwing
their meeting open to the press,
doubtless in the hope than no one
sided version of the story ef the
proeeedings should alone go to the
publio. The World, echoing the
invitation of the Miner to the Liberals, not too courteously put, however, wishes to assure either party
that its news columns are open to
both when wishing to have straight
facts, otherwise escaping our notice, published.
One would think  from   reading
the columns of our morning   contemporary today that the big Conservative meeting  was  quite  too
awfully harmonious.to put the matter in the language of the "chappie"
to whom the Miner so  brilliantly
refers.     Thia was by no means the
case.   Neither did the motion of C.
E. Race,  the  "Independent  Conservative,"  aspirant, referring   to
certain   locations,  carry.      What
did carry was an amendment moved by A. H. MaeNeill, K.C., which,
though lengthy in form, guarded in
language and limited in scope but
broad in generalities.simmers down
to this, that all coal  locators   who
have complied with   the   laws   in
their locations (the point yet to be
shown) should be entitled to   their
I full legal rights. Tbis by no means
met with the approval of   the   locators   and their   representatives,
who met the speaker with howls of
"C. P. R :"   "Give us   a   chance;"
and other choice specimens of heckling.   It was no wonder that Chairman Goodeve, seeing what he   was
up against, ruled in the  beginning
of the meeting that none but those
who had signed the roll had a right
to vote in a   Conservative   gathering.    Mr. MacNeill't! speech   went
into the question of  how   the   reserves were flret made, showed that
the resolution made by   Mr.   Race
as lo no reserves be granted   interfered with   the   Progressive   platform,   which   urged  that  certain
landB Bhould be reserved   in   support of the schools;   declared   that
the locators wished   the   party   to
swallow certain statements as facte
without enquiry; insisted on an investigation being prayed for, maintained that   the   present   premier
had no right to decide the eaBe until he had been   endorsed   by   the
province; wound up by saying that
no locator should be  deprived  of
his legal rights, an academic assertion which nobody   wants   to dispute, but it was   up   to   them   to
show that they were legal.
Mayor Dean followed, endorsing
the resolution and making Bome

RAILWAY CONSTRUCTION
The Canadian Northern, BayB
the Vancouver Ledger, is about to
push its main line westward from
Grandview to Edmonton, a distance of G20 miles. It also haB
under way an extension, 100 miles
long, to Prince Albert. On this
construction work the government
has agreed to guarantee the bonds
to the extent of $13,000 a mile.
Approximate estimates of the cost
of construction have been prepared
by government engineers, and
been published in a parliamentary
paper. From these reports it is
evident that the government regards $13,000 per mile as about
two-thirds of the cost of construction. The Grandview to Edmonton section, it is estimated, will
cost $11,340,000, or $18,300 per
mile. The cost of the Prince
Albert extension iB placed at $1,-
885,000, or $18,850 per mile. In
both cases the cost of rolling
stock and equipment is regarded as
$3000 per mile, The actual cost
cost of construction alone is extension. It is proposed to lay the
line with 60-pound rails, and these
will oost $2,250,000 in the caBe of
the main line, and $375,000 in the
case of the Prince Albert line.
Nearly a quarter of the actual coBt
of building thus will be for rails.
These estimates allow for a higher cost per mile than those made
last year. The Canadian Northern
seems to expect a higher cost than
do the government engineers. The
presented by Mr. R. F. Tate, "resident engineer," place the cost of
the lines at between $19,000 and
$20,000 per mile.
It is interesting to note the character of the equipment mentioned
in these estimates. They provide
for 1440 box cars, or two per mile,
and 50 locomotives, or one for
every fourteen milee, as well as for
fifteen first class and ten second
olass coaches, six sleepers and two
dining earn. As a start, this
equipment may be sufficient.
When onoe tho country fills up an
equipment of two box cars to the
mile will not begin lo handle the
wheat crop.
lowly Liberals, the premier of the
Dominion   has   been dubbed  "St.
Laurier".   He is a man to be criticized and not an angel to be adored.
And Sir Wilfrid muBt understand
that   the  sentiment of  the great
majority of the working people of
Canada is against this importation
of   contract labor.   If he despises
that sentiment, he can do without
that vote.    Secondly it is the posl
tion of the province to enforce the
law by instructing the Attorney-
General   to   act.   The  provincial
government   does   nothing of   the
kind.   The provincial government
ought to have  a  better regard for
the   feelings   of the voters whom
they desire will put them in power
for the next few years to come.
But the Provincial Mining Association has declared that it wields
power and has the weight of the
authoritative opinion of all classes
behind it. The government will,
it must, listen to it. What will
the Provincial Mining Association
do with this matter? It is openly
charged, and not denied, that the
Crow's NeBt company, that company which has been keeping the
industry of the whole provinoe
back, owing to the method in which
they treat their men, is advertising for miners in New York. This
is a breach of the law. Does the
Mining Association for one, do the
Kootenay Boards of Trade for an
other, do the political associations
for a third, or do the provincial
and Dominion governments for a
fourth and a fifth parties propose to
do anything in the matter. They
are all responsible from the very
powers they enjoy and claim. Are
they afraid to open their mouths?
What has the Crow's NeBt eompany
done for this province that it should
be allowed to break the law.
About the only body from which
any hope of redress can be entertained iB the Provincial Mining
Association. The matter is urgently
brought to their attention for enquiry as to its truth and for action
to be taken on the same should it
so prove.
If the law iB no good let it be repealed. But as long as it remains
on the statute books it must be enforced or the electorate will know
the reason why.

THE ALIEN ACT.
There is certainly one thing that
it iB up to the Provincial Mining Association to take up at its next executive meeting, if it is to prove
itself to of more than partial use in
thie provinoe, and that is the question of the importation of alienB
under contract. This iB the duty
of the government to prevent in
reality. The government, being
afraid apparently of the corporations, will do nothing of the kind.
It supinely allows Canadians to be
fined in the United States for importing contract labor from the
Dominion into the States, but when
the reverse is attempted, it merely
turns the smitten cheek. For this

WHITE MAN'S
COUNTRY
Importing Chinese in South
Africa.
CHEAP LABOR IS BAD LABOR
Comparison of Costs and   Interesting Statistics by a Forms!"
Uitlander.
The following letter written by a
GlaBgow correspondent of the London Mining Journal to that paper
in regard to the controversy whioh
is proceeding at the Rand as to tbe
introduction of Chinese labor in the
mines, will prove of interest to
many Rosslanders, especially those
who have friends in South Africa:
Sir:—Your correspondent who
writes you under this heading
should not apply the expressions
"ignorant and misleading" to the
arguments "for and against" the
importation of Chinese labor, and
then speak of the Transvaal as not
a white man's country. How the
South Africa Republic can be any
more a black man's country than
Australia or United States, he fails
to tell us, and I am fearful those
favorable to the employment of
yellow labor have a poor advocate
in Mr. Muller, and to whom they
may with good reason apply those
epithets he applies to 0tl ers. To
say the Transvaal iB not a white
man's country, after we have just
concluded a war for ils possession,
is a little incongruous, and, in face
of the blood and treasure we have
expended, I should say highly
ridiculous. There should be no
difficulty in attracting white labor
to a country where, bo far as climate
and protection to life and property
are concerned, there remains little
to be desired; and it may just be
possible the labor question there is
one having something more beneath it than your correspondent
seems to be able to grasp. Like
the latter, I have lived in many
climes, and had the "pleasure" of
leaving Elandsfontein on a oattle
truck two days after war was deolared. Naturally I feel a little
sore when I read, after all we Buffered, the land iB now, so far as
white men are ooncerned, a "no
man's land."
To compare the labor conditions
as they obtain in South Africa
with those which obtain, Bay, in
China or Mexico, is absurd. In the
former or the latter country by no
amount of industry could be founded a Johannesburg or a Pretoria,
because the sooial and racial conditions are widely apart from those
to whioh any Britishers are acous-
tomed. One faotor in attracting
skilled people to any new country
is the desire to make a homestead
tor themselves, that they may
merge gradually into the general
population of what haB become
their native land. Unless, in exceptional cases, this is impossible
in China, Mexico, or, perhaps, in
South Afrioa, and the reason why
British people do not now flock
there is due alone to certain economic reasons whioh are concentrated in the word "monopoly," and
not to those alleged by your correspondent.
Let me meet Mr. Muller by saying my experience has always been
that "cheap" labor means bad
labor, and when I read in a mining engineer's report/'labor is very
plentiful and very cheap."    I  in
variably oonolude it is proportionately bad. Anyone who has employed many men, and has studied
the sooial conditions of many
landB, muBt, I think, admit the
higher the wage the higher the
skill.
For instance, in certain parts of
the North of Spain labor is very
cheap, but it is likewise most inferior, one good navvy being as
good a half-dozen suoh "laborers."
In Mexioo many enterprises oome
to grief, and because of this native
labor question; and I know of
mines where, with any amount of
peons at $1 Mexican per day, success was impossible; while mines
in the United States, of lower grade
and less favorably Bituated, paid
handsome dividends, and to their
hands $3 gold per day. On the
the Rand we bave the richest patoh
of land known, and still we are
told by Mr. Muller and others,
these mines cannot pay with white
labor!
Let us see. In the "Statist" of a
few weeks ago I find it stated
twenty-five produoing mines have
made dividend distributions, and
the average runs about 33 per cent.
Few, if any, are under 10 per cent,
while many run 50, 80, 100, and
150 per cent; and yet we are told
this is a black man's country 1 No
doubt living is very high over
there; but what makes it bo? Land
has gone up, I am told, 300 per
cent, and a Bmall cottage to rent
costs about./, 15 per month. ThiB
ie not so in California nor in any
mining district I know of. In the
early days in the latter country
men were paid as high as $10 gold
per day, while the land was low in
value. As it increased, wages fell
in proportion. That this will rectify in South Africa in time
there is no question, and then it
will become a white man's oountry.
To bring about this departure
radical chaugos will require to be
made in the mining laws, as well
as in those pertaining to the ownership of the land, and when thiB
haB been effected mine-owner and
miner will receive each a just and
proportionate return, the one on
his capital, the other for his labor.
Until this consummation is
brought about the labor problem
must remain unsolved. The capitalist and the land-owners are at
present the owners of the oountry,
and we all know it takes two millstones to grind.

SIMILKAMEEN CITY, B. C
Now Is the Time to Buy Lots
in Similkanieen City, B. 6.
CAMP HEDLEY is the most talked of oamp in the province, and situated in the centre is Similkameen City, surrounded by
rich mines whioh will shortly have large payrolls. Over 200 lots have been sold to business people who realize that Similkameen will become the metropolis of this district. The Nickel Plate mines have expended $300,000 in development and are at
present building tramways and a 40-stamp mill. Arrangements are being made for the erection of a large smelter at Similkameen City which will cost about a million dollars. Besides the Nickel Plate group of claims being developed by one of the richest
mining oompaniea in North America, there are several other groups and properties which will shortly be developed, among them
being the Kingston Mines, Rollo, Wellington, Winnipeg, Red Chief and Pollock. Situated as it is in the beautiful Similkameen
valley, midway between Princetcn and Keremeos, and protected from all opposition in the valley by adjoining a large Indian
reservation, this townsite will become one of the prinoipal mining camps of the Pacifio Northwest. It was only a short time ago
that lots in Rossland, Nelson, Greenwood and other mining centres were selling for the same price that they are today being sold
for in Similkameen.   Come in before the boom and double your money.
Similkameen City to Have Two Railways.
The Viotoria, Vanoouver & Eastern and the Canadian Pacific railways are starting immediate construction for the Similkameen,
which will make this town a railroad centre and divisional point, and when these competing lines are completed through to the
Paoifio coast tbey will beoome the main through lines, being the shortest route from the interior to the coast. A large sawmill is
running steadily on the west addition, the only available timber for miles around. The main street is 90 feet wide, being all
cleared and ready for building purposes. All railways, roads, telegraph and telephone lines will have to come through tbis
townsite, which is looated in the oentre of the whole Similkameen valley and will become the largest distributing point and
mining oentre in British Columbia.
Similkameen City Lots Will Make You Rich.
A large agricultural area to draw from.   Pure water, fine climate, rich mineB, big payrolls.

The week with the exception of
the Bharp demand for American

or less thoughout, especially within
the last few days when the demand
became its most marked feature,
has been uneventful. There iB not
the Bame demand which existed a
short time since for White Bear
and Giant, both of which stock are
selling for prices a little lower than
those \t hich obtained of late. Centre Star and War Eagle have been
in demand, but Fisher Maiden has
been muoh asked for under the
new conditions of the property.
Uarr bier-Cariboo has not sold under 40, and as high as 44 cents
has been paid for this stock. There
are still more enquiries after Morrison, u.3 it is likely that a move
will shortly be made upon this

MaeNeill amendment.
W. Thompson did the same,
daring that he rose also to rebut
an accusation made upon him in
the Miner that he was under corporate influence, rebutting the
charge upon C. E. Race, whom he
deolared ought to go to Spokane in
evident allusion to the syndicate of
bona fide ooal and oil locators of

C. E. Gillan was heartily in accord with giving every man his

Ab the sense of the meeting, despite the uproar made, was evidently with MaeNeill, the resolution made by C. E. Race went
overboard and the amending plank
of the K. G, merely an academic
assertion of opinion with a dozen
ifs around it, was adopted instead.
Another resolution passed, namely that of censuring Sir Wilfrid
Laurier for the delay in imposing
the Chinese head tax, and for neglecting to similarly prevent the
Japanese, without a dissenting
voice at the time, though later, A.
C. Gait, speaking to the MaeNeill
amendment, urging it adoption and favoring unanimity of
opinion declared that he did not
believe that British Columbia
oould do without Chinamen—RosBland certainly oould not do without Chinese domestics. This expression of opinion met wilh ories of
most nnequivooal dissent, and the
speaker oould find none who would
take his side.
