On the whole the progress of the
oamp as dependent on the Elmore
process is looking well. The reduction, or rather abolition, of the
dudes upon oil for the use of concentrating maohinery Bhould be a
material help. The last consignment of oil coming into Rossland
oost 29 oents, whioh is a great reduotion from 41, the original oost.
But this shipment was made anterior to the abolition of tne duty.
Now, bb the World has already
pointed out, it is of lttle moment
to the Imperial company of Canada whether the oil procured for
concentrating maohinery is obtained from it or from the Standard Oil oompany of the United
States, as both concerns are praotioaUy one. Again, there issnch
a demand for lubrioating oil in
Canada, and suoh a resemblance
between lubrioating oil and concentrating that as far as Canada is
concerned it is ot no mo
ment whether the oil produced
is sold to the Elmore peo
pie or to the users of other
maohinery. Still the abolition of
duty must make a difference, and
we are pleased to be able to say
that regotiations for such reduction
are in favorable progresss, also are
other negotiations for the reduotion
of the freight rate. This will probably bring oil per gallon, delivered
in Rossland, to the vicinity of 20
oents.
The experience of the past winter on the Elmore plant at the Le
Roi No. 2 will have shown both
that oompany and the White Bear
the in&d visibility of depending
upon the railroad companies for a
continuous succession of supplies,
and the advisability, therefore, of
having sufficient storage room for
the accomodation of oil, ooal, and
other supplies.
The White Bear people are at
he preaent moment in surveying
the foundations of their 100 ton
plant, and as Boon as this is erected
erected with the proper storage
warehouses a sufficient supply of
water (if that of the Le Roi No. z
is used settling tanks will be required) and above all the experiences of the past together with a
continuous supply of low grade ore,
Bay, in the vicinity of $7, it will be
possible to make that demonstration of the commercial success of
the Elmore process whioh, owing
to inevitable hitohes, the running
out of supplies, etc., has been
impossible in the past. With a
larger plant the White Bear should
be able to afford the Elmore people that demonstration of commercial  success whioh has been

ACCOUNT OF
JTHE FIRE
Ad Appalling Blow to Toronto.
TREMENDOUS SWEEP OF FUMES
The City Stunned But Building Op-
eraitons Will Begin at
Once.
Toronto, April 21—-The great fire
whioh devested the beet of Toronto's wholesale oentre was under
eontrol at 7:30 a. m. Estimates of
the loss vary, some plaoe it as high
as $17,000,000, others say that $11,-
000,000 will cover it.
Toronto is temporarily stunned,
but plans to rebuild and resume
business operations will be made
by the majority of the business men
at onoe. It ie estimated that 6,000
people are temporarily out of employment.
The fire limit waa reaohed about
7 o'olook, when the west wall of the
west wall of the MaoMahon, Broad-
field & Co.'s premises on Front
Btreet, near the oustom house fell
and six firemen who were playing
on the oustom house, had a narrow
escape.
On Wellington atreet, Union
bank is the last limit of the oon
ilagration on the south side. The
sweep of the flames was something
tremendous. Within thirty minutes from tbe time the firemen were
called the fire was beyond all
human oontrol. Valiantly as the
firemen struggled they had to retreat from building to building and
from street to street. The sweep of
the destroying element wiped out
everything in an area weet of Wellington street, noith side, to the
vaoant lot separating the Suokling
and Ivy warehouses, north on Bay
street to the Toronto Eogiaving
Co. and aoross the Btreet to the
office of the Telegram, whioh is
partly destroyed. The fire swept
south on that side, completely gutting the three adjoining buildings,
and then went east along Wellington street avoiding the low build*
ings on the northeast corner.
On the south side of Wellington
street, the five story building of
Wyld, Darling Co., was sacrificed
and the flames swept east to the
Kilgour Paper Co. On Wellington
etreet, west of Bay, the old Brock
warehouse fell a prey to the flames
whioh oame from Ralph Smith &
Brow Bros, factories. To the south
the oonflagation extended into the
rear of the warehouse on the north
side of Front street back towards
Warwiok Bros. & Rutter, stopping
at the Queen's hotel. Both Bides
of Bay street are in ruins, involv
iug a loss of all the solid buildings
on the south Bide of Front street.
PEACE ON

Rumour That Russia Gives

CAUSE ALEXIEFFS WITHDRAWAL
Extraordinary Canard in Manchuria
as to Port Arthur Fighting.
Washington, Aprfl 21.—The announcement from St. Petersburg
by the Associated Press of the
withdrawal of Alexieff from tbe di*
reotion of affairs in the Far East,
together with the lucid and interesting story of the rise and tall of
the radioal element in offioial oirolea
here.
The ohange just indicated ia be*
lieved to portend a oomplete reversal of Russian polioy in Manchuria
and it is thought tbat oould Russia
save her faoe and pride before the
oivilized world by scoring a decisive victory on land the way
would be speedily opened for peaoe
negotiations on the broad basis of
the last Japanese proposition just
before the outbreak ol the war.
The reinstatement of M. Witte, the
deposed Russian Minister of Finance, who strongly opposed the
war iB expeoted to follow Vety soon.
London, April 21.—A story is reported from the German embassy
that it is ourrently reported through
Manchuria that both English and
Amerioan ships took part in the
bombardment of Port Arthur whioh
resulted in the blowing up of the
Petropaulovsk by a Japanese torpedo, or a displaced oontaot mine.
It is said that the ships were flying
the Japanese flag, but were really
Ameriaan and British. The report
has made it dangerous for travellers
in Manohuria of either nationality
acoused, and several disappearances
are reported, notably a British subjeot named Davidson, who is Baid
to be a Canadian.

IMMIGRATION
The United States Commitaioner
of Immigration, Frank Sargent has
been reoently pointing out the grave
dangers whioh are confronting the
Republio over the oharaoter of the
immigration into the United States.
Hia remarks apply in a lesser degree to the Dominion. He says
that the reports of the last fiscal
yonr shows that 70 per cent ot the
immigrants were from Southern and
Eastern Europe, whicb be declares
to be undesirable immigration, less
worthy of the country than the
Teuton and the Celt. He ascribes
tho fault to assisted immigration.
Mon who really want to better their
oondition, says Commissioner Sar
gent, will oome any way, and the
only effect of assisted immigration
is to import a number of people
who otherwise would have stayed
in their own oountry as .they would
not have had the energy to get
away of their own unaided volition
Suoh people are not wanted as
pioneers. Suoh people do not ele
vote by the admixture 'ol their
blood the people with whom they
beoome one. The United States is
getting the high standard of its
raoe deteriorated and is in oonse
quence leBB able year by year to
assimilate the interior races and at
tho oame time to keep up its own
fbroefulness and energy* Suoh ie
the deliberate opinion of thc United
Statoe offioial who may be regarded
as an authority on such a matter.
He goes on to assert that the demand for cheap labor is at the bottom of the immigration, especially
of the Oriental in the Western
States.'
Referring to this very matter
yesterday the Would pointed out
thnt well-paid English labor would
not venture out to Canada exoept
from the English ever-present spirit
of adventure. "From a monetary
point of*view there is very little to
attraot. These remarks applied to
Canada, but even more so to the
United States, and today Mr. Sargent is oeen to be in oorrobration
The building up of a country can
not be accomplished by an inferior
raoe doing all the work. Already
census statistics show that the native born Amerioan is not fond of
■aanual labor. He more or less de-
■pises it and would like somebody
else to do it. An examination of
the nominal roll of its militia
'■hows that the large percentage of
ita soldiery are not native born
Americans. When a nation thinks
tbat otherB will do its work for it
Md will also attend to the necessary fighting, that nation has
■torted on its downhill career. That
way went Rome. It is not a question of a Monarohy or a Republio,
it le not a question of robes of the
Head of the State.it is a question of
N the State itself. The Continental na*
tions were till recently fond of predicting that Great Britain had
reaohed its zenith and would <le-
oline. But old country folk as a
rule are not ashamed of manual
labor nor are they attaching a taint
to the name of soldier. Arms is
reckoned as the leading and most
honorable of all professions. And
the feeling of the people creates the
state. In this Canada of ours we
want neither Dukhobor nor Asiatic
We want our own kind, men who
are virile, who are neither ashamed
to work nor to fight, who demand
fair treatment, and who are not
used up when what should be the
prime of life is reached.

THE  METRIC SYSTEM
Objections Urged at Recent
Meeting of Manufacturers.
The Metrio eystetn coming fer
conside, ation before the reoent
meeting of the Canadian Manufacturers Association the following
objections were urged and its debate deterred for another year:
The objections raised against the
adoption ot the Metrio System
group themselves natrally into two
classes, theoretical and praotical.
Under first-heading it is urged that
it ia more natural for mankind to
divide quantities and measures by
two and multiples of two than by
ten. For this reason it would appear that the English pound containing 16 ounces and capable of
division by two, three separate
times, is preferable to the kilogramme containing 1000 gra-nines;
and the English foot, containing 12
inohes, whioh may be divided by
2,3, 4 or 6 evenly, iB a batter measure than the decimetre containing
10 oentimetres. In faot it ia common in Franoe at the present time
to sell goods by the demi-kilo,
showing that the desire to divide
quantities by two oannot be eradicate even after more than a century
of a compulsory use of the decimal
system. In this oonneotion John
Quinoy Adams said in his celebrated report on the Metrioal System
that "deoimal divisions are applicable only to numbers and thst
time, space, gravity and extension
rejeot its sway."
It is also pointed out that while
the adaptation of our system of
weights to the Metrioal System
might be possible, that that System is badly adopted to linear
measurements.
Continental nations have not yet
suooeeded in driving out the old
forms of weights and measures. A
reoent work published in Germany
on the ooet ol textile fabrics contains an appalling mixture of
weights and measures suoh as
Frenoh lines, English yards,
Frenoh inohes, Metrio metre*, English pounds and Metrio  grammes.
It is also olaimed that the Metrio
System does not reduce the labor
involved in everyday calculations,
In ordinary business problems the
vulgar fractions snoh as 1*4, 1-3,
1-2,18, etc., are easier handled
than their equivalent deoimals,
and while the Metrio System is
well adapted for soientifio purposes
the reason is "that the scientific
use ol measurements consists of
measuring existing things whi'e
the industrial use ol measurements
oonsists in making things to
quired size."

THE IRON INDUSTRY.
A Larga Market Opening for Canadian
Product.
Toronto, April 21—The Canadian
Government commission whioh
went to England to inquire into the
eleotrio process of produoing pig
iron from ore and making pig iron
into steel by electricity so ' that it
oould be utilized in Canada, where
ooal is not to be had, has returned.
Dr. Haanel, head of the commie
•ion, says that the mission was very
successful.
Elsewhere it is said that by eleotrio process ore oan be tamed into
■teel at a oost of $8 per ton. If so,
Dr. Haanel admits that this will
pay well. It is likely that a survey
will be sent out to locate iron beds
Canada and water powers adjacent
thereto, so that capitalist may go
into developing the industry.
The largest consignment of hatB

now shown technically by the Le
Roi No. 2. A profit has been
realized by the Le Bol No. 2, but
that profit, has been gained off
loner grade ore than was ever oon-
[ sidered even by the most sanguine
as commercially profitable in this
camp. Moreover, the profit of the
Le Roi No. 2 is dependent more
upon ita higher grade smelting ore
gotten from the Josie than tor the
lower grade concentrating ores
whioh were announced to be upon
the No. 1, now temporarily suspen
ded.
The Le Roi No. 2 will start to
make a continuous run on Msy 1'
To thoroughly show the advantages of the process that run should
be of several months' duration.
The White Bear will not be in a
position to do the same until late
in the summer, but with a plant of
double the oapacity the results
should be very muoh more favorable.
Ab soon aB it is praotioable the
ores of the Iron Mask will be tested
with the possible view of the erection of a concentrator, although it
is understood lhat the primary
objeot ot this mine is to supply a
needed iron flux at the Northport
smelter.
The success of the St. Eugene
will probably lead in the near
future to the reopening of the Sun-
Bet, where a concentrator will likewise be benefioial.
In addition to thia, another plant
is hinted at in certain well-informed quarters, whioh may possibly be
Btarted within the next oouple of
months. Here the example of the
Wat Eagle would be followed and
the building completed as far as
the roof ie oonoerned before snow

There was a fair audience for

whioh iB not attempted with success in Rossland as a rule. However, every rule has itB exceptions.
Ab a whole tbe musical production
was better than on the first night,
and the little hitches which alwayB
aooompany the first productions of
any show, amateur or professional,
were all absent. The tenor, Mr.
Coffin, was in better voice, and did
himself better justice than on the
first evening.
Geo. Dunn surprised his friends
by the excellent manner in whicb
he managed his solo, and his tenor
will be a welcome acquisition to
future efforts. The duet between
Mrs. Thomas and Mies W. Crowley was effeotive, as was also the
quintette. Will Hoyt sang in a

was heartily applauded.

All arrangements have been completed tor the Fitzwilliams Creel
20 round sparring bout for next

Fitzwilliams, as he wishes to show

of funking at their previous date.
He feels confident that he will bave
