Ymir, March 23—The enquiry
held here yesterday into the oause
of Alexander MoDermid's sudden
death, which occurred on Monday
day evening, resulted in a verdict
by the coroner's jury that "the
said Alexander McDermid came to
his death at Ymir, B. C, on Monday, March 21st, 1904, as the result of blows infliofea by Murdook
Campbell."
Murdook Campbell, the man
with whom the deceased quarreled,
told the following story: "I
am a miner residing at Ymir. On
last Sunday I went over to the
Cosmopolitan hotel to get the boys
to go to ohurch. I heard McDermid eepaking of some one in' very
foul terms and later heard my
own name. McDermid continued
speaking about me and my brother.
He said he oould lick us both and
oalled us all sorts of names. I
went away to avoid trouble. We
met again on Monday morning,
but only to say "Qood Morning" to
one another. In the evening I
again met the deceased. He asked
me for two bits, and I said I did
not have it. He went to take his
coat off and eaid he could liok the
two Campbells, 'Murdie,' he
Baid to me, 'yon know tbat you
are a nothing but a damned our.'
I did not want trouble with the
man, for I knew be used a knife. I
left the Ymir hotel and crossed
over to the Cosmopolitan. Then I
started back and was going down
to the Ros" house and then on
home. I met the deceased at tbe
crossing and he struck at me, I
struck him and knocked him down
I struck him twice after he fell
and I walked off and left him. I
went down to the Robb house and
washed off Ihe blood from my
hands and sat there a while. I
then went up to the Cosmopolitan
nd the deceased was lying on the
floor.   I walk, d around town until
beard McDermid  was dead and
i
I then I went and gave myself up (0
| the police."
Story Comes From St. Petersburg That the Northern
Squadron   Is   at   Port   Arthur.
St. Petersburg, March 23—The
authorities are skeptical in regard
to the report that a Japanese
squadron has been sighted off the
port of Newchwang. There is confirmation here of the report, purporting to come from London, that
the Vladivostok squadron has
reached Port Arthur.
Weihaiwei, March 23.—Admiral
Togo has been comparatively passive sinoe February 25 last, and
Port Arthur has been given a respite, although the cruisers and
torpedo boat destroyers of the
squadrons are keeping a close
blockade of the Russians port.
Kamimura's bombardment of
Vladivostok on March C was carried out by the oruiser squadron.
The vessels opened fire on the Port
of Vladivostok at 1:30 in the afternoon and the bombardment lasted
about three-quarters of an hour.
The little affairs marked tbe same
evidenoe of skill and dearly defined plan of attaok which have
distinguished all the Japanese
naval operations. Admiral Kara
mura brought his ships into range
opposite the dead point of the line
of forts at the northeast entrance
of the harbor, thus avoiding their
fire aB well as that of the fort on
the opposite side.
Alexeieff'a report that the Japanese fleet did not approach within
range of the forts is inoorrect. The
truth of the matter is that the forts
were unable to reply to the fire of
the Japanese fleet owing to the
position taken up by the vessels
of the latter. The fleet fired at a
range of about 7000 yards. While
the extent of the damage caused by
the fire of fleet is unknown, fire
was seen in the harbor to the eastward, indicating that the Japanese shells reaohed their mark. The
only object of the operations was to
induoe the Russian Siberian fleet
to come out and offer battle.
Viotoria, Maroh 23. — Messrs.
Libby and Hoff, two Jewish refu
gees driven out of Vladivostok who
have just arrived here, say tbat the
winter at Vladivostok has been exceptionally mild. The sea has been
frozen only six miles out fiom the
harbor entrance, and the ice breakers go oul in the morning, returning at noon, clearing the ohannel
every day, and coasting vossels
were running into and out of the
harbor without difficulty. Mr. Libby
says that before be left the Vladivostok squadron of the Russian
fleet was anchored in tbe harbor
and had not stirred out of it for
quite a long period.

The chair  was takeu  by J. A.
Macdonald, the sitting member for
Rossland, who started the proceedings by an incisive speech setting forth the reasons of the formation of the Association last year,
i. e., to biud together the Liberals
ot the mining constituencies bo as
to be able to push our interests at
Victoria. The same reaBons existed today. Furthermore this Association had prevented a further
split in the party, it had healed past
differences, it had now a coherent
policy, and if it has at the next
eleotion the sinews of war which
it had lacked, among other things,
at the last eleotion it would oertainly have that victory whioh it
might have had last fall.
Mr. Macdonald spoke against
forming an independent Kootenay
party. It would be difficult to
form, with the various party leanings of the constituents of such a
party. It would only form a fourth

ASIATIC LABOR.
The Right Honorable Alfred
Lyttleton, Seoretary' of^State^for
the Dominions over the Seas, is a
better oiioketer than a Colonial
Seoretary. If he were aa good be
wonld know.that neither tbe mines
of British Columbia nor those of
California were built up of Chinese
labor. Chinese labor was brought
in to build uthe railways, and the
contractors were not made to take
the  Chinese   out of the  country
alter they had finished tbeir work
They were never tolerated in our
mines.   The .Premier   states thai
either there]] would  have to  be 8
grave  commercial   crisis   in   Un
TranBvaal or that  Chinese  labor
would have to be allowed.   Well,
better  the commercial  crisis now
than years henoe, when the prob
lem will be complicated] with the
presenee of the almond eyed Coles
tial.   Tho BiBhop of Hereford hit
the right nail on the head in the
House of Lords when he declared
that the presence of the Chinaman
wae wanted   by   the   mineowners
who did not i reprei ent the people.
Greater Britain, not Great Britain
alone, fought to have the Transvaal a part of the British dominions.    It did not fight,   however,
for the benefit of the mineowners,
nor for the benefit of the Cslestial,
but to have the land a white country,   Biahop   Dart  of New Westminster was quoted in the debate
M expressing high opinions of the
Chinaman's morality, which does
great oredit to his charity, but the
point is not whether the Chinaman
iB or not moral, but that the Dominions over the Seas in the great
white colonies want the land for
the propagation of their own race,
and every  other objeot must  be
subsidiary   to  that.   If   England
wants to be a nation of scrofulous
half castes it had better show the
way instead of boasting about tbe
purity of   the   English blood, and
telling the   Colonies   that  Chinamen are   good   enough   husbands
for their   daughters.    For if they
are not, we don't want them.
Russia cannot be brought to tbe
front any quicker than at a rate of
betwet n 100 and 200 daily, if no
other means are devised of getting
the stores to the front.
The route by way of the Arctic
Ocean is only open in . favorable
yearB, for about three months or
possibly four, and is seldom free
nnough of ice to admit of navigation, even to the vessels specially
constructed, before the end of
June. The high latitudes between
the north bf Norway and the ice
bound Kara Sea, into which the
Yenesei debouches, are 70 north,
and if the islands of Nova Zembla
bave to be rounded, owing to the
blockaded condition of the Kara
atraitp, 78 north will have to be
negotiated. Now to get through
HudBon Straits into,,Hudson Bay,
a route of which we have heard in
Canada, only] means penetrating
02 north and tbe route is declared
to^ba oommerioally impracticable
even in summer time except in
favorable jseaeons. ^|jj^%55»-
"After reachingTthe, Yenesei ]an
a^nToTloOb^ile^iTneceBsary to
reach Lake Baikal. It is cold comfort that the Russians will get from
this route to relieve their railway.
Indeed the railway must be in terribly bad Bhape to even discuss the
possibility of Buoh a forlorn route.

NOVEL METHODS.
The latest "guff" the Russians
are giving the publio iB their proposal to ship heavy guns by way
Kronstadt to the mcuth of the
Yenesei, thence by barge up tbe
river to Lake Baikal, and thence
by rail to the front. By doing
this with the heavy guns and the
ammunition,, it is calculated lhat
muoh of the congestion will be removed from tbe Transsiberian
Railway. Tbis is a confession tbat
the part of the Traneaiberian lying
between Moscow and Lake Baikal,
a distance of 3500 miles, iB badly
handicapped from want of facilities
as ia the eastern and more lately
finished end. This is a pretty
bad look out,.for it means that just
as soon as the small bodies of
troops in Siberia have been sent

of Northern British Columbia.
The firs', news of the Liard
strike reaohed Telegraph Creek by
a messenger sent out from one of
the Hudson Bay Company's Liard
river posts. The messenger stated
th it an Indian had offered for sale
along with his oaten of pelts a
quanity of ooarse gold, which he
said he had taken from the Liard
tributary. Some days latter a
party of twelve left Telegraph
Creek for the discovery, sbout 200
miles distant. They were greatly
exeitel over the report.
In tbis oonneotion two brothers,
MoLeod by name, left Wrangel by
dog team a month ago for the same
locality, though their mission was
not at that time known. The Mo-
Leods are sons ol a Hudson Bay
agent, who years ago waB stationed
at the Liard poat. He is supposed
to have given his sons information
whioh Bent them to that remote
region.
It ie not thought unlikely by
those who brought the news of the
strike tbat the Telegraph Creek
Btampedera will overtake the McLeod boys. From the alacrity
whioh those leaving Wrangel displayed in starting as soon as the
news arrived, it is believed there
that the full story aa to the ricbes
of the diggings has not been   told.
The report of the find spread
rapidly among the miners and
prospeotors along the upper
reaohes of the Siikeen and Telegraph creeks, and many were
making preparations to leave for
Liard. For the past six months
old Cassiar mines have been push
ing through Wrangel, ostensibly to
work the property whioh they had
thrown up years ago. Meanwhile,
the oost of transportation haB been
greatly reduced through the operation of a steamer on the Stikeen
and regular paok trains from
trains from Telegraph Creek. The
Dominion Government telegraph
oompany in the operation of its
line ti Dawson, built many miles
of good trail through that seotion
making remote interior points
muoh more accessible.
There is one hydraulio plant in
operation in that section known as
the Talbot Creek Hydraulio
Mining Company. It sent out
150,000 worth of gold dust last
season, and this in the faoe of being compelled to cease operations
early because of a scarcity oi
water.

The council met on time last
night, and the only absentees were
Aldermen Rolt and Martin.
The first disousaion oame up over
the payment for the type writing
of the procedure bylaw. The finanoe oommittee reported that it
oonsidered that this should not be
made as it was not ordered by the
oounoil.
Alderman McDonald thought
the bill was too mich, but that it
was done for the service of the
counoil, and eaoh alderman had a
copy, and each alderman wae entitled to a oopy.
City Solicitor Nelson said the
oharge made was rather under than
over the regular scale of Charges.
Alderman Hamilton on behalf of
finanoe committee, said that there
was no desire to deprive the typewriter of ' 3r fair remuneration,
but the work waB done at the
J* | offioe of a firm of solioltors, who
were not city solicitors, but who
were in some sort of consultation
with private members of the city
council.
Mayor Clute thought the bill
should be paid as the girl who
did tbe work was evidently under
the supposition she was doing oity
work. The proceeding was highly
irregular and could not pass without comment, nor could be taken
as a precedent.
The item then passed,
In the report of the Fire, Water
and Light committee the question
of the inadequaoy of the city lighting waB referred back to the whole
council, which deferred consideration until Aldsrman Rolt, the
Chairman of the Committee could
be present.
Alderman Stout drew attention
to the narrowness of a oertain
stairway built next Maxey Crow's
premises. Inspector Long was detailed to look into the matter.
A bylaw was introduced and
read for the first time, authorizing
the sale of all lands on whioh taxes
had remained unpaid for the past
two years.

Phoenix, Maroh 22—Railways to
connect in some way with the Boundary oountry seem to offer many
attractions to railway promoters
and in the last few years enough
have asked for charters to provide
each present shipping mine in this
section with from two to three
separate railways apiece. They all
seem to have their eye on Midway,
also, as the connecting point with
the Boundary, the Similkameen
and farther western points to the
Coast. It ia a poor year when from
one to half a dozen of these projects
is not sprung on an unsuspeoting
publio. Evidently there must be
something worth having fn railway
promoting.
Tbe latest scheme of this kind is
called the Boundary, Ktmloops and
Cariboo Central railway, whioh is
modestly asking for powers to incorporate and build from Midway
to Okanagan Lake, Kamloips, Hazelton, and on   into  the   Yukon,
