INSURANCE RATES.
Everyone in Rossland knows
very well that the rates charged
for fire insurance both on buildings
and contents are entirely too high,
are unreasonably out of all proportion to the risk run by the companies, and that these rates are
fixed by the board of insurance underwriters at the coast and not. by
the local agents here, who would be
only too glad to see a decent tariff
in force.
Merchants and business men
have learned by long experience
the utter nselessness of attempting
to influence the board of underwriters by any such reasonable
means as improving the city fire
protection appliances, increasing
the water supply or decreasing the
risk in the business section of the
town by other well devised improvements.
The board of ainderwriters represents one ol llit. -vorst forms of
the modern combine, without—so
iar as the general public are concerned—any redeeming feature,
but there is one way in which this
rlose corporation can be induced to
li ;ten to reason aud be made to act
honestly so far as the rates are
concerned.
lhe city council of Montreal, in
order to meet an increase of 50 per
cent in Ihe insurance rates recently
made by the Canadian Underwriters association, decided to fight the
matter out for the benefit of the
whole Dominion, and they have
been successful in placing the
whole of the civic risks in companies outside of the association
and at very reasonable rates indeed. Fifty per cent of the business went to the Scottish Union,
40 per cent to the Ottawa and 10
per cent to the Montreal Mutual.
In the action they have taken
the Montreal aldermen have aimed
a blow at the combine that will be
strongly approved of by merchant.'-
and business men generally who
may be trusted to follow the example set them.
There should be no difficulty in
inducing the companies named to
come into the Kootenays and write
risks here. Considering the elaborate and expensive system of fire
protection Rossland is now maintaining, our merchants, who are
paying heavy municipal taxes,
should obtain sonic- relief from the
excessively high rates which are
extorted from them annually by
the combine. Should relief not
come in the manner indicated there
is a system of "underground" insurance which was successfully
practiced in Toronto in past years
aud which might possibly be tried
here. Technically unlawful, it
might very well be justified, since
no government should enforce u
law which has been twisted by the
combines to work a gross injustice
to the very peopte it was intended
to protect. We commend the Montreal aldermen's scheme to the
careful consideration of all Rossland merchants.
boring classes have secured for
themselves a larger share ot the
profit than they have ever before
possessed, and have spent their income freely, if not lavishly, and in
consequence the consumption of
manufactured articles has enormously increased, the writer continues:
"By the phenominal expansion
of the world's markets we have not
only not profited, we have even
lost ground which we possessed 30
years ago. Whilst all the world
has been growing richer, we are
growing poorer and poorer 5'ear by
year. A trip to Germany or the
United States shows the growth of
solid prosperity, founded on business activity over there in healthy,
clean towns and .villages and in
well instructed and well clad people. A trip to English manufacturing towns shows grime, drunkenness, filth, rags, ignorance and
misery."
Industrial prosperity in Great
Britain has only been visible, declares the writer, in two instances,
viz- shipbuilding and machinery
production. He adds: "If we except these two industries only
the parasitical industries have
flourished with us at the cost of
the producer, such as company
promoting, stock br.kiug, book
making, public house trade, water
works, gas works and railway companies."
Under present conditions the
writer asserts: "1—There are no
indications that our rural indus-
trie s will revive. 2—There are
strong indications that our manufacturing industries will be rapidly
destroyed by the United States and
Germany. 3—There are no indications that our foreign trade will
expand. 4—There are strong indications that our shipping industry will be rapidly ruined. 5—
There are strong indications that
our invested capital will rapidly
vanish. Only by patriotism and
energy can these consequences be
averted."
"And our colonies," concludes
this pessimist, "will not help us
out of the mire. They will look
with disgust on a formerly great
nation, which can neither feed nor
clothe itself, nor pay for its wasteful living. They will consider
Great Britain as a monstrosity
among the nations, and as an incumbrance and an incubus upon
one empire."
Coming from an English writer
iu a leading British review these
conclusions are entitled at any rate
to the respectful consideration of
all thoughtful "empire" men.

ENGLAND'S DECAY.
A writer in the current Contem

Decay of Great Britain," takes a
very gloomy view of the future
outlook in the mother land. Without admitting the correctness of
the conclusions arrived at, or attempting to answer the arguments
advanced by the writer, it is interesting to note his summing up of
the situation.

A nurse saw Mr. Babcock at 5:40

nurse who was passing the door of
bis room heard moans and tried
to enter, but tound the doors barred. The nurse Immediately went
t) summon the superintendent and
returning found the door opened.
Mr. Babcock lay ou the bed, the
clothes of which were bloodstained
and nearby was au empty vial,
while on tho bod were two small
knives. Ihe blood still flowed
from the severed artery iu the
wrist. Mr. Babcock was just- able
to whisper, "I have swallowed
corrosive sublimate," and then

necessary legal steps while a number of Americans called at the hospital and offered their services to
Mrs. Babcock.

Financial Statement Asked For.
Editor World:—
I think quite a number of ratepayers
outside myself would like to see a statement of the city finances publisbt-d before tbe proposed loan bylaws are voted
on. Though 11 statement was 1 ubllshed
in January, many no doubt have lbr
golten its details, and another now would
give a clearer understanding of the situ-
atson. I would suggest that the statement contain the following details, and
would thank you for obtaining the same,
and publishing it:
1. Date of eacii loan bylaw, and object, time to run, amount, rate of interest, amount of interest and sinking fund
to he raised annually, and price at which
each issue was sold.
2. Services for which 142,000 indebtedness of the city over an 1 above its
debenture debt was incurred.
3. The face value of debentures deposited as collateral for overdrafts, at
any bank, amount of such overdraft and
r-ate of interest thereon.
4. The overdrafts at bank if any, with
rate of interest.
;. Statement of investment of the
sinking fund.
6. Total amount of assessment Iqoi,
though not yet raised.
7. Permanent st ll of each city department with salaries.
Property Owner.
the Chinese we-e a great menace to the
country, and legislation should be passed that would exclude them. He claim-
ed that forty thousand whites would
come here and be employed if tbe
Chines were r ot here, and he favored an
increase of the poll tax to $500. As a
mil'man he would be willing to share
the additional cost of labor, if such

SCHOOL TRUSTEES.
Election Next Month-Small Interest
Usually Taken.
It is a matter of complaint that usually
no interest is shown in the annual elec
tion of school trustees.
The nominations and election—if there
is any contest—will take place on the
last Saturday of next month. The three
trustees at present are Messrs. Lalonde,
McOraney and Forteath. One of these
will retire and a successor will be elected
on the date named.
Contractor Stewart is putting up a
much needed fence around the big
school house grounds. Money was asked
to level up the grounds but failing to get
an appropriation the trustees are having
the fence built.

THE  SENATORSHIP.
Important    Meeting   Held—Rumored
That Martin la the Man.
An exceedingly important meeting of Rossland Liberals was held
in this city on Saturday.
The World man secured a partial alleged report of the proceedings but declines to express any
opinion as to the exact truth of the
story. A hoary headed Liberal
said at lunch today:
"Well, if you must know, it was
this way. You see, Martin—old
man Jim Martin you know—who
is so smooth that a fly can't stay
still ou his head but just rolls off,
fixed us on Saturday for sure.
While McArthur and Sinclair have
been squaring up to one another
over the senatorship, Jim was sawing wood hard, and when we met
on Saturday he brought down a
petition signed by all the 'boys
begging Sir Wilfrid to make him
'Senator Jim.' There was no getting away from the signatures and
Jim is walking the avenue today,
hands behind his back, for all the
the world like a real, live senator.
Mac and the doctor spent the most
of the morning wiring but
it is of no use. The meeting felt
there was only one thing could stop
Jim and when he read a letter from
A. B. Clabon retiring in his favor,
the jig was up."

Carnegie's Millions.
London, May 20.—Andrew Carnegie has given two million pounclu
lo establish free education iu our
Seaith universities. Edinburg,
Glasgow, Aberdeen, and St. Andrews. He stipulates that the
beneficiaries be his "Scottish Fellow couutryine.11," No Kuglish,
Irish, colonists or foreiguars.
The fund will apply to medical
as well as to commercial eduortion
and will be placed in the hands of
trustees which will pay the expenses of Scottish students benefitted under the schemo-

Why not patronize a home industry? It will assist Union labor
and keep the money at home. Ask
for a Crown Grant or W. B. Cigar
when you buy.
