Briar Pipe and Box of Cigars
The above are two prizes offered by
THE DOMINION BOWLING ALLEY
for the two highest scores made
between May 20 end June 30.
Everybody  Welcome to Compete
DO YOU SMOKE?
If so, why not smoke a good cigar? Try a
W. B. or a
Crown Grant.
You will not be disappointed. Union made
The Rossland Water & Light
company want the earth with a
ring fence around it. The only redeeming feature of the rates charged
by this company is that the service is continuous. Otherwise the
iniquitouB bargain made by ex-
Mayor Clute and his colleagues
would long ago have been rebelled
against by a long-suffering people.
To charge $1 and $1.25 a month
for a single light in the business
portion of this city is simply an
outrage. Compare with this rate
with that charged by Lindsay, Ont.,
a town of 8000 to 10,000 inhabitants, where a light is charged
$1.25 to something less than a
dollar per annum, and not for one
single month. The rate is just
one-twelfth of that charged by this
company of wholesale profits.
It is possible that the expenses
here are greater than they are in
Lindsay, but that has yet to be
shown, and it is safe to assert that
even were such the case the difference of expense would not be more
than 50 per ueut, whereas the difference in charge is upward of 1200
per cent. Talk about usurious interest the veriest Shylock in the
world would not dare to exact his
pound of flesh in this outrageous
mannerl
But if the Rossland Water &
Light company thinks that this
sort of thing can be done with impunity it is much mistaken. It iB
more than doubtful whether the
company has any such privilege as
it has claimed. It would be advisable for it to take the advice of
a good lawyer as to whether it had
better persist in its proposals in
face of the injunction proceedings
which it will surely run up
against. And let it be remembered
by that company that whether
those proceedings be successful or
not the attention of the people being called to the matter, the next
move would inevitably be for a reduction of rates all round, or calling in of its charter.
In the meantime the city fathers
might rise to a sense of their proposition and insist on obtaining a
fair tax on the property of this
Shylock concern. At present it is
paying $1001 What about its
franchise? Is not that assessable?
If not, why not? If it is, what is
the use of having a city assessor who
will not attend to his duties? Or is it
the fault of the ring which prevents
this ollicial from doing his duty?
If not, then the sooner the old charter is rescinded the better, and the
sooner a public enquiry is instituted and witnesses examined under oath as to why ex-Mayor Goodeve and the Rossland Water &
Light company came to terms, and
how it was done, and the circumstances connected with any secret
bargain which may have been con-
cluded,the better for the public.
Arid let it be remembered that
this company is at present charging the city over $2000 per annum
for the lightB. Similarly in the old
days it used to charge for the,hydrants and if the water did not belong to the city it would by paying
out a sum for public lighting and
fire protection which would not
fall far short 0! $5000 yearly.
The company openly boasted
that it could afford to give the
water free if the city dared to run
a water system in competition, so
much was the profit made out of
the light. This being the case it
is advisable that the company be
taxed to the extent of the sum
charged for public lighting on its
valuable franchise, and at the
same time, be compelled to reduce
to $1 a year, instead of $80 its
oharge for the arc lights, in consideration of the graft ex-Mayor
Goodeve has allowed it to have upon the people of this city.
Before you get that new spring suit'
come and see us! we know that we can
please you, both in price and quality of
goods. Comerford & Cameron the leading tailors.
A NARROW
ESCAPE
Foolhardy Attempt to Cross
the Columbia River
in Flood.
The Columbia river is rising
pretty rapidly a fact which does
not seem to have been appreciated
by A. M. McLeod who yesterday
attempted to cross the river in a
row boat just below the rapids, at
the junction of the Pend 'Oreille
with the main river.
McLeod soon discovered that the
current was too much for his small
boat which filled with water and
became perfectly unmanageable.
He was just able to keep it afloat,
and that was all. His attempt to
stem the raging current were unavailing, and it seemed for quite a
time as if nothing could save him.
Lower down, however, the current
waB not quite so swift and the fortunate man eventually was able to
get ashore half way down to North-
port with no wish for a repetition
of hiB certainly thrilling experience.
ANOTHER
ACCIDENT
Charles Hastings, a Miner,
Has His Leg Broken in
the Josie.
An accident occurred in the Josie
mine this morning wherein a miner suffered serious injuries.
It seems that a shaft man, named Charles Hastings, was working
at the bottom of the shaft which iB
now being put down another lift
from the 600 foot level. He had
just loaded a bucket which was to
be hoisted to the surface in the
ordinary way when the cable hook,
on lifting the bucket, broke letting
the heavy mass fall upon Hastings, breaking hiB left thigh.
The injured man was immediately removed to the Sisters' hospital
in a rig from tbe Le Roi stables
which was at once telephoned
for. Dr. Coulthard was in attendance and the patient iB likely to
do well.
Tug of War Tonight
The Mountain Lion.
At the Cinematograph theatre
tonight the tug of war between
male vs. female, very exciting.
High diving scenes. Horseb jumping hurdles. Galveston disaster.

The California.
The California mine, (Republic),
has built its ore bin at the railroad
and let a contract for the ore hauling, which will be commenced as
soon as the wagon road is in shape.
This will be the first property to
send ore over the Great Northern,
as it was over the Kettle Valley
lines.
THE NEW
FINANCIERS
Report Favorable Progress
-Necessity of Making
a Real Hustle.
The Mountain Lion mine is ready
to ship and reliable information
c lines that Mr. Wyatt will return
this month and open the mine by
July 1st.
The finance committee this afternoon report favorable progress. Of
course they do. Why should they
not. Everybody knew that just aB
soon as a real live man got hold of
the proposition that the matter
would be arranged at once. There
is no trouble in getting money
from anyone on such a scheme
As a matter of pure business the
merchants of this city will give
and give freely for if the money is
not spent here it will be spent
elsewhere.
But it is to be hoped that there
are other feelings to work upon
that than that of pure business
alone. There is such a thing as
pride of citizenship which will go
a great way toward making this
celebration a success.
But to revert to pure business'
principles, not banking. It is self
evident that the more this affair
of the camp ia advertised the more
people will know of it and the
more thoBe who do know of it will
be impressed as to itB qualities
and the likelihood for having a
real good time if they do come
here. Hence it is advisable to
have placards, and posters and
hand bills everywhere, not one
here and there, but paste the townships around full of them. People
will then begin to believe that
there is something in it. A placard in some hole or corner will
blush to find itself alone. The
more money spent in this way the
better the return, the larger the
number of poeple.
The citizens contributing money
have no object in seeing that money
all go to their own townfolk without people outside coming in to
witness the interesting spectacle.
What they want is to see somebody here who will have a little
roll in his pocket. To get that
man here you must tell hiin often
and tell him at every turn, what a
good time he will have if he will
only come to Rossland and see
what a fine town we have got, and
what public spirited citizens and
what excellent sporte, and go away
with an impression that if his
lines were only cast in these pleasant places what a lot of money he
would be making.
There, that't just our advertising
man.   But he's alright.
The Chico.
The president of the Chico (Republic) is expected in Republic
shortly to determine upon plans
for the future.
CITY'S FINANCES
The Majority and Minority
Reports.

Dean-The Milder Majority.

The citizen's committee pre:ont-
ed its report to tbe city council last
night for its consideration making
certain definite recommendations.
The report was divided into two,
the one being that of the majority N
and the other of the minority, whic'i
last consisted of one member of
that committee only, John Dean,
who is again to be congratulated
on having the courage of his convictions, whether they be right or
wrong.
. Taking the majority report it
figured on a saving of some 1400
on the mayor's salary, cutting that
gentlemen down to $600 instead
of $10C0,[and abolishing the salary
of the aldermen, thus saving $1800
per ar aura. Total so far $2200.
That the her'th officer be cut
to $100 per month including everything. This year tais would
amount to a sa .ag of aoon' $600
but in ordinary years to a saving
of $200. Averaging the amounts,
an average saving of about $400
per annu.ii could be affected. Total $2600. Anothei saving of $400
is proposed by cutint, down the
firemen's salaries. Total $3000.
The city auditor suffers another
cut saving $200, the city engineer
another $200, the city clerk, the
city treasurer, chief of police, etc,
a reduction of 10 per cent which
ngether would total about $500.
Total $3,500. Five arc lights to
be abolished, meaning another
$400. A reduction in the salari»B
of the teachers which might amount
to another $500. A reduction in
the lighting, which certainly will
not be productive of another $100,
making altogether a gros" saving
Oi 3 "00 iu round figures. To be
added to this is $2500 on the "water" debenture which were never
sold but which are being Bet aside
agai: 1 the time they are disposed
of. (As a matter of fact these.
"water" debentures are light
U'j;)entureB.) Grand total $8000
to meet the deficit of
■fr.,000. To meet this deficit a tax
oi two mills is proposed which
shoul . be productive of the balanco.
John Eean is more drastic. Hie
savbg in the aldermanic council
board is, however, some $600 lees
than the reduction proposed by the
mujority. On the other hand, his
reduction of general salaries of
over H00 per month would amount
at tho proposed rale of 15 pcr cent,
to 'iver $600 more than the majority. His cut ou the health
officer wouii, however, be $300
lesa. The net difference so far is
$ »00 lesB than the majority. But
whereas the cut in the firemen's
wage by the majority would not
amount to more than $500, if John
Dean's plan is carried out of a
partially volunteer brigade, the
saving offected would be over
$3000. He also insists on the corporations paying their share of the
taxauon which would probably
amount to nearly another $1000.
In other items he is probably at
ono with the majority.
Summing up the matter, without
discussing the terms, the majority
report shows how to meet a deficit
of $11,000 and that of John Dean
one of $15,000. THE EVENING WORLD, ROSSLAND, B. C, JUNE tl, igoa

THE CENSORSHIP.
The newspapers of Canada are
under a press censorship, says the
Victoria Colonist, and a press cen
sorship of a most disagreeable and
individious kind. The censors are
a knot of American journalists in
London who make it their business1
to laud up everything American
balittle everything British, and
particularly those things whicb
make for closer relations and ■&
better understanding between Greal
Britain and the Dominion of Canada, We knoiv, of course, that society in Great Britain is now limited to a small circle of American
duchesses and marchionesses, and
that King Edward seldom or never opens his mouth except to talk
to an American. We know also
that all the prizes of the turf are
carried off by American jockeys.
These [things do not bother ue
very much. But when it comes to
having anonymous authorities
thrown at our heads who deprecate
the establishment of an inter-Empire merchant marine and auxilliary fleet it is time to enter a protest.
We can build ships about thirty
per cent more cheaply than the
Americans can. We can operate
them at less cost, and, through the
f xcellence of our coal, carry a larger horse power in a Bimilar space.
We have ports of our own at every
point of the compass in every quarter of the globe, and a vast commerce by which the different portions of the Empire minister reciprocity to each other's needs.
In addition we are apparently able
to sell Bhips to the United States
at about twice their proper value.
But although steamship lines may
sell out their good will at an exorbitant figure, the British Empire,
with all due deference to Mr. Pier
pont Morgan and the gentlemen
who control the American Associated Press in Loudon, is not yet
ready to part with itB interests of
the good will of the sea, and to allow Americans to do business for
us which we are able to do more
economically and satisfactorily
for ourselves. We are told that
"the Morgans and other members
of the original Atlantic shipping
combine profess utter indifference
as to whether or not new projects
materialize, and declare frankly
that such competition would not be
formidable."
But if they view new projects
with such indifference, why all this
disturbance at the bare mention of
them?
ORIENTAL IMMIGRATION.
I'reachcrs   and   socialists   alike
are apt to condemn any restriction
on the immigration of any people
from any one   part of  the earth to
any other on the  general principle
that the  earth   belongs alike to all
of   its  inhabitants.     It   may   be
thought,   in   certain   quarters,    a
strange collocation, that of preachers and'socialists but, really, there
should be no surprise as the Master
himeelf waB one of the first and the
greatest of socialists.    Tbe preacher is   inclined  to   think   tbat the
foreigner, and especially   the in
teresting Oriental, would be a more
apt pupil when  brought under the
inll'ience of the Christian   environ-
nunt of wlut they  f link   and say
ia a superior   race.   The   socialist
bases bis objection to restriction on
tho   broader   principle    that   the
earth   balongs to   the inhabitants
thereof and, deacending into into,
Tploncr particulars,often airily states
that the Chinaman and the Japanese are merely asking the right in
this laud which is accorded to the
foreigner in their own.
Now to the preacher the easiest
thing to be said is that charity begins at home and when a well
taught people, thoroughly grounded in the tenets of their faith and
accustomed to tbe living practice of
the same, go into the land of Far
Cathay or into that of the Rising
Sun their example will teach more
than transcendental ethics which
are never put into practice by the
people as a whole.
On tbe broader principle of social economy a multitude of arguments at once suggest themselves
which cannot he dealt with thoroughly here, and were best not attempted. Still it might be pointed
out that the principle pressed home
would mean that no one would
have a home of their own, no little
nook that they could call their
very own. The fact of the matter
is, that no matter how acquired,
the land of a people is their private
home just as much as the house of
a citizen, whether it is actually
owned or not, is sacred to the
family. Just as much as the citizen has the right to choose who
shall enter within his portals so
much has the country tbe right to
decide who are acceptable to them,
and who are thoBe whom they
deems, rightly or wrongly, fit associates for their people.
Further than this the particular
argument is incorrect. Were the
people of this Canada to do unto
Chinamen aB he does unto tbem
tbey would permit his presence upon the soil of a very few of their
cities and then would not give him
permission to travel without a
paBsport more than ten miles from
the confines of those few ports
where he is permitted for a while
to rest his foot. They would see
that he is prevented from entering
into competition with all labor and
that the very guilds of the merchants should have a pav in the
business into which huembaiks.
Such are the conditions which govern China to this day. If there is
any distinction betweeu that country and Japan it is that the anti-
foreign laws are carried out in a
far more drastic manner. So far is
this the case that the editor of this
paper having occasion a few years
ago to travel by rail between two
parts of Japan, Kobe and Yokohama, had to take out a passport,
payiug for the same, in order to be
allowed that trivial privilege.
Thus, it will be Been, for this testimony can be corroborated by any
traveller to the Far East, that the
privileges enjoyed by tbe Oriental
in this country are far greater than
the foreigner is accorded in his
own.
It is, therefore, on these ground?,
whether raligious, ethical,or particular that the Japanese and the
Chinaman should be excluded
from a country where he will not
assimilate, where it is not desirable
that he Bhould assimilate, and
where he is a standing menace to
labor, that backbone and framework of the body politic.
the sea. The attempt is renewed
today by one Morgan. The result
of the decrees was bo crushing an
act of retaliation by Great Britain
lhat the maritime trade of Europe
has never yet recovered from it.
This man Morgan or his sympathizers think that Britain will supinely sit down under the fresh
menace. They are foolish people
and should take a warning from
the past. What England could do
single handed a century ago is not
comparable with what that country, aided by her colonieB, can do
today. But tbey need not get cfon-
fident if no action is taken at once.
That iB a little way we have.
It is remarkable that a government whicb has a majority of 130
should have it cut down to 29 on a
labor bill, and only suffer an inappreciable loss on a measure such aB
protection, completely upsetting
the policy of the last half century.
Such has been the fate of the respective votes on the Trades Union
and Corn Tax bills in the English
house of commons. In other words,
the people will Bubmit to a tax on
their food rather than have an in
fterference with thetr liberties. It
is iudubitably the will of the peo
pte that the Trades Union bill
should pass and it is undoubted
that it will pass. It is atao plain
that the laboring men of England
are sufficiently patriotic to permit
themselves to be taxed bo that the
colonies should profit.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The citizen's committee has
made ils report. It has been laid
oil the lable. The next thing that
will be heard that it has slipped
into the wa^te paper basket. Next
year we Bhall also hear tbat the
city fathers have gone to hunt for it.
Here is a list of a few properties
which will probably begin to ship

California, North Star, Irou Horse,
Alberta, Big Three, Commander,
Wolverine, R. E. Lee, Mayflower,
Deer Park, Sunset and quite

ANOTHER ROUTE KOOTENAY GOAL
The Rivals of Mackenzie &
Mann.
THE TRANS-CANADIAN RAILWAY
Likelihood of   a  Coming
Competitor.
Work   Has   Been   Actually  Commenced—From Quebec to
Fort Simpson,
The Trans Canada railway is no
less an enterprise than   a   railway
from Chicoutimi, by way of Notta-
.   way, near James Bay, through the
Peace River pass, in   the Rockies,
to the Pacific coast opposite   Fort
Simpson.   The   route   selected   is
north of that chosen by Mackenzie
& Mann for the   Canadian Northern, hut within the area   regarded
by the promoters as the wheat and
barley belt    A charier for the road
waa granted by the Dominion parliament in 1895, and was amended
in 1897 bo aB   to provide   for  the
commencement   of   the   work   by
June 29, 1901, the  completion   of
the line within ten years from the
passing of the act, and   the   construction of a branch line to  Montreal.    Work was   commenced   at
Roberval within   the   time   stipulated.
Some 60 miles of line have been
located westward from Roberval to
James Bay, and plans and profiles
have been deposited with the Dominion and provincial governments, according to law. From
Roberval to James Bay the distance is 3S0 mileB through the territory recently acquired by Quebec
from the Dominion, and an application has been made to tbe local
government for a land grant. A
subsidy bill has been passed by
the Dominion parliament granting
$3200 per mile, or $192,000 in all,
towards the construction ef the
first sixty miles of this line, it being provided that the grant will be
increased lo $6100 per mile should
the cost of construction exceed
$15,000 per mile.
In a prospectus   issued   by  the
company, a number of comparative
distance are given favorable to the
northern route.   From   Quebec  to
Vancouver it is 3078 miles  by tbe
Canadian   Pacific,   while   by the
route of   the   Trans-Canada   company it it is only 2830 miles to the
coaBt opposite Fort Simpson.   The
distance from Vanoouver to Yoko-
homa is 4290 mileB and   from Fort
SimpBon   only   3940 miles.   The
summit in the   Peace   River  Pass
is 200 feet above tide water, while
the summit in the Kicking Horse
Pass, where the Canadian  Pacific
crosses the   divide, is   5400   feet.
One of the American   Pacific  railways reaches an elevation   of   11,-
000 feet.
The military and naval advantages of such a line are strongly
urged. It would be from 300 to
600 miles inland, and not exposed
to attack in the event of hostilities.
The expectation of the company,
as set forth in the prospectus, is
that if the government will grant
the usual double subsidy of $6100
a mile, a financial basis will be es
tablished which will secure the
necessary capital to carry out the
enterprize. In return for the fav-
orB asked, the company will agree
to give free transportation from
Quebec to any point on its line
for all immigrants and bona fide
settlerB aud their effects, and to
carry wheat from all points on its
line into Manitoba to the steamers
in Chicoutimi and Quebec at nine
cents per bushel.
A number of interesting meteorological records are given to dispel the popular notion that the
region around James Bay is one of
arctic temperature.

Fields—Kitchener Iron
Ore.
Coal
It is reported on reliable authority, says the Grand ForkB News,
that the Dominion Iron & Steel
Co , which has taken options on
local properties at Blairmore, Alta.,
in which Spokane men are interested, has secured the options on a
basis of $750,000. In addition
there is an $800,000 bond on the
iron propertioB of Kitchener, B. C,
which makes a total deal representing an outlay of more than a
million and a half for the coal and
iron mines alone.
It is declared that the C.P.R. has
made arrangements with the promoters of the new company so that
the C. P. R. will always have a
supply of coal from the new fields.
This feature was brought out, it is
said, because President Hill of the
Great Northern recently secured |
heavy holdings in the Crows Nest
Coal company, and expects to haul
out the coal of those mines, to the
detriment of the C.P.R.
About 18,500 acres of coal lands
are included in the options, distributed as follows: The Hastings
Syndicate tract, owned by English
capitalists, 9000 acres; the Livingston tract, owned by Maynard,
Cowan & Davenport, Paine & Co.,
of Spokane, T. G. Procter of Nelson, B. C, R. E. Fishburn of Chi-
cago.and V. I. Baker of Cranbrook,
B. C, 5000 acres; the Frank tract
and the tract owned by Lethbridge
people, 3000 acres.
Tho Dominion Iron & Steel company was incorporated under the
laws of Nova Scotia June 22, 1899.
The headquarters of the company
are at Sydney, Cape Breton island,
where it has established large iron
and steel plants with a capacity of
1000 to 1200 tons of steel per day.
This plant iB expected to be in full
operation at the end of the year.
The Bteel company has the option
of leasing the coal company's properties up to January, 1903, on paying as rental the coal company's
fixed charges and six per cent per
annum on itB common stock. Last
December a syndicate headed by
JameB Ross of Montreal acquired
control of this Btock, amounting to
to $20,000,000 at par.

The fi th annual meeting of the "shareholders
of the Crow's Nest Pass Coal company was held
in Toronto on Mareh 7th.
The net profits of the year after paying all
operating expenses and all charge of every kind,
amounted to $207,848.39. After paying a dividend at the rate of 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 coal mines
and the townsi'e of Fernie. Four years ago thia
company had no transportation facilities, and their
stock sold as low as eleven cents per Bhare, 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, Biiver, lead, iron, lime, fire clay,
platinum, and a fine stockraising country, and it
is 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
by paying 10c per share down, and t*n cents per
month until fully paid, with non-forfeiture clause.
This price is subject to twenty-five cents advance
without notice as soon as transportation is assured.
The present price is $1.10 per share. Do not wait
until it is too late, but get in on the ground floor,
and make a handsome profit. A purchaser of
one hundred shares now, may gain a profit of
$8,990. Crow's nest shareB as an example. This
would be a fair profit on an investment of ten
dollars per month for eleven menths. We invite
the fullest inspection of the company's affairs by
