The Pall Mall Gazette, after a
highly complimentary outline of
Colonel Denison's career, gives an
interesting interview with him
under the title, "A Definite Proposal."
"I understand," said The Pall
Mall representative, "that you
think that the time has come for a
definite schemed
"Yes," replied the colonel, "we
hold now that the duty of thoroughly organizing the military
and naval resources of the whole
of the British possessions to defend the common interest is absolutely necessary, and that it
Bhould take shape in the form we
suggest. Our view is, that, while
every colony of the empire should
be free to raise its revenues as it
pleases, all should agree to give
other members' of the imperial
family a preference in its own
ports to the extent of, say, five or
ten per cent. That is to Bay, you
would not attempt to interfere
villi our colonial tariffs any more
than we should desire a reduction
of your oustoms duties or your
new tax on imported corn. All
we propose is that Great Britain,
the Dominion of Canada, the Australian Commonwealth, India,
South Africa and all the other
colonies and dependencies, aB well
as the mother country, shall help
to increase the military strength
by placing the foreigner at thiB
Blight disadvantage as compared
with British subjects. We propose
further that the revenue obtained
from this preferential tax Bhall
be entirely allocated, to imperial
defence, navy or military, or shall
be administered by a council which
will include representatives from
the empire as a whole."
"With regard to the disposal of
the money, would it be paid into
a common fund or expended locally?"
"We think" said Colonel Denison, "there should be a common
administration; but I should hope
that it would be possible to disburse the sum obtained from any
particular colony, as a result of the
differential duty; mainly within
that colony itself. For instance, at
present a considerable amount of
imperial expenditure is required to
maintain the naval station of
Halifax and Esquimalt. Well,
no doubt, under the proposed system the Canadian contribution
would relieve the imperial exchequer of that burden. At the same
time we might be prepared to increase our militia, maintain a
small standing regular army, and
undertake to supply from our maritime population a certain contingent of Royal Naval Reserve men
who would be valuable for his
Majesty's ships on mobilization."
the general shipping point for the
mines of Burnt Basin and St.
Thomas. The firm has laid in a
stock of all such articles as may be
required by prospectors and miners
doing assessment work in that district, bo tbat all labor of packing
from this city may be done away
with. The new township is about
five miles north of Gladstone and
is likely to do well during the
coming summer.

Victoria, June 4.—The Canadian
Northern railway bill passed second reading in the house last evening. When the division took
place there were two members absent and the measure whioh the opposition had fought bitterly went
through on a vote of 19 to 15.
"The announcement of the vote
was received by the government
members with considerable applause.
It is now thought that the government having shown unexpected
strength, where it was supposed to
be weakest, will be permitted to
put through the necessary supply
vote and conclude the work of the
session wtthout further delay.
Something in the nature of a promise to this effect was given by the
leader of the opposition a few days
ago.
The Vancouver-Midway railway
bill is now up for its second reading, but as it is expected that the
vote upon it will be the same as
that upon the Canadian Northern
bill, interest in the debate is lacking.
When Mr. McPhillips alluded to
the "lying, false, damnatory and
pernicious statements" of the Colonist newspaper, he was abusing
hie position to libel a newspaper
which never deliberately misrepresented a public man's utterances, but which reserves the right
to declare editorially that Mr. McPhillips himself is a silly, overgrown, conceited, pragmatical
schoolboy, who has outgrown the
jurisdiction of the maternal slipper
without having outgrown a most
pressing need for it.—Colonist.

London, June 4.—The general
holiday-making mood of the people
arising from the announcement of
peace in South Africa and approaching coronation festivities,
was exemplified today by the unprecedented muster of the classes
and masses at Epsom Downs, for
the Coronation Derby.
King Edward and Queen Alexandria, the Prince and Princess of
Wales, the Duke and Duchess of
Connaught, the Duke of Cambridge, Prince and Princess Charles
of Denmark, and the Indian rajahs,
and their suites, took special trains
to the course and received ovations
everywhere from the crowds. Inclement showery weather prevailed,
A large contingent of Americans
was present.
R. S. Siever's Sceptre was fourth,
and R. Forts Tod's Czardas was
fifth. Ard Patrick won by three
lengths, the same distance separated the second and third horses,
Rising GlasB and Friar Tuck.
Time, 2:42*.
The betting was 100 to 14
against Ard Patrick, 40 to 1
against Rising Glass and 100 to 7
against Friar Tuck.
Ard Patrick beautifully ridden by
Martin, winner, with a couple of
more supposed outsiders ahead of
Sceptre, the hitherto unbeaten,
filly.   Sixteen horses ran.

Giant Sends Away Another
Trial   Shipment
Tonight.
Three cars of Giant ore go out
this evening to Trail. As already
stated in the columns of the World
the mine made a very profitable
return on the shipment of the first
lots of ore sent out about a month
ago, and is now venturing upon a
second shipment. The ore now
taken is not wholly from the
molybdenum ledge, but is from
various parts of the property.
Manager McDonald is away at
present but on his return resumption of work on a bigger scale than
heretofore may be confidently looked for.

As a first tangible result of 'the
conferring of the citizens' committee a letter was addressed yesterday to the council demanding
certain detailed information which
it iB necessary for it to know, in
order to report intelligently. It is
certain that the labor involved in
answering the very pertinent questions aBked will t. V>Bt necessitate
the engagement of a couple of extra
clerks.   The letter is subjoined:

Yours respectfully,
Special Committee,
By John Dean.
No report has yet been made by
the committee, the members of
which are tackling the problem
set them very thoroughly and systematically. The lines on which
this discussion has hitherto been
conducted, awaiting for the disclosure of actual conditions before
passing any judgment, is the absolute necessity of retrenchment.
There should be a general reduction in salaries and a loss expensive administration. It has
been advocated that the fire brigade be gradually transformed into
a volunteer force under certain
restrictions and that the members
could alBo act as policemen. It is
also thought that the teachers
could be reduced in number. There
is also a general feeling that taxation should not be increased and
that the presont revenue of the
city should suffice for all needs if
economically administered.

FERNIE DISASTER.
British Columbia has been pecu
liarly unfortunate in her coal
mines, the operation of which has
left a sad record of disaster and
death. Some years ago Nanaimo
witnessed a great loss of life in her
mineB, Cumberland comes next
lapt year it was Extension, and
now it is Fernie, the worst of all
Tne latter accident, resulting from
an explosion of gas last Thtmday,
wa? tiul) appalling, sending a
thrill of horror through the coun
try. One hundred and ten human
be'mgfe lost their lives, a majority
of them being English speaking
miners, whusii brings the disaster
pointed.y nearer. Surely some
better Bcheme for safeguarding life
can be evolved ia the working of
the mines than are now in force.
Or, can it be, that in the haste to
acquire wealth, the several com-
pmiesare inclined to telax that
vigilance made incumbent on them
even by existing laws? Too often
has it been shown in this country
that the opuUnce and influence oi
companies have rendered the operation of (he statutes abortive and of
non-effect, resulting in human life
being cheaply held and frequent
disaster. Laws should be enforced
here as in England, without fear
or favor to any. And, as with the
coal measures, so to with the metal
liferous mines, every possible care
Bhould be zealously adopted to
safeguard the employes and pre
elude accident.—Slocan Drill.
...
ONTARIO ELECTIONS.
Much to the disappointment of
the good Liuerals of Ontario tbe
Ross government hat, only been
sustained by a majority of some
four members, And it is indubitable that had Ihe rank and file of
the people been first Canadians and
not party mon that the Liberals
would have been badly beaten and
the Conservatives returued to
power In fad, the hidebound
partisan, who votes party because
he has always voted party or because bis father before him voted
party, is responsible for the sei
back Ontario will undoubtedly gei
during the next four years. The
machine vote, the dyed in the wool
party men, are among the very
worst features of Canadian politics.
With their existence the progre-e
of reform is made more and more
difficult.
Not tbat tin; Conservatives would
have put up a bit better government,that hi'.ve the Liberals in tin
past or will do in the future. According lo the Iraditioi.s of thai
party through ... t'ie Dominion i'
is even less inclined to further legislation tending toward the air.el
ioration of the condition of the
gteat masses of population than
are the Liberals. Their lesson in
practical politics has yet to come
They have yet to get a leader who
will do for them tbat which wut-
done for the Conservative party in
the old country hy Benjamin Dis
raeli, the r.sult of whose leaching
is that the rankest Tory of thai
ou'fit, according lo training and
family tradition, Lord Salisbury
himself, is not a whit ashamed to
profess himself 11 Mocialist and lo
introduce such legislation as Old
Age Peneion acts. When Conservative leaders in this country are
not ashamed to make sueh speeches
as that made at the Mansion House,
just before the Boer war, by the
aged premier of England, there
will be some hope for the party of
J,he    self styled    "l.iberal-Conser
vatives.'' In the meantime much
good could be accomplished by the
people turning down one by one,
legislature after legislature which
refuses to introduce (and render
effective) labor laws such as are
gradually being passed everywhere
else in tbe Empire. And the voter
should not ask himself whether he
is Liberal or Conservative. He is
against that government which
will act in the interest of the capitalist and not of the people.
Some relief might be got in this
manner lut it is the west whicb
can introduce a real and radical
measure of reform by pushing the
interests of the Progressives, If
this is done there will bo a majority of the new party in the next
legislature and the example thus
afforded will be e. lasting lesson to
the people of the east. It is not
that the labor parlies rule New
Zealand, Queensland or New South
Wales tbat labor laws are introduced in the country. That will
be a reason by and by, but that
•lay has yet to come. In the mean
Cime the presence of the labor members on the floors of their respective
houses have influenced legislation
to a very large extent and will in-,
fluence it yet more. In the meantime the lesson of the day, hardly
to be learned by all, is.for the Liberals in Ontario, that • they will
surely be surely turned out at the
next election unless they show
themselves to be the friends of the
people, and, for the people, that
nothing can be hoped for from the
old parties and tbat a new parly is
ibsolutely necessary.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Massachusetts prides itself as
being the most forward state in th,e
union and yet its senators have
just rejected a bill providing
against the employment of women
and children befure Ga.m, and after
6 p m. by a majority of 24 to 13.
A capitalist that would fatten on
such labor is not fit to live.
Tho colony of New Zealand, says
the Paystreak, charges one two
hundred and fortieth part of tbe
value of tbe land in taxes. The
province of British Columbia values
mining claims at $500 and charges
if 12.50 taxes on them, which equals
one fortieth. That makes it that
Bri ish Columbia with all its
numerous schemes of taxa;ion,
still charges the property owner
six times as much as New Zealand
loes, not to mention the two per
cent tax.

WANT A HOLIDAY
A Hint From Our Sporting
Editor.
CELEBRATE THE  CORONATION
A Plea to Advertise the Town and
Have for C-nce a Good
Time!
There is a very general feeling
among the citizens of Rossland
tbat times are improving and that
the old bad time is passing away
never again lo return (till the next
little ache calchos tho 'tummies of
the leading ciliz.'iia) and therefore
something Bhould be done to con
vince the world at large and not
that of Rossland alone, that the
city iB by no means moribund bu t,
on the contrary, a very lively
corpse.
The mines are about to work
more men than ever. The schools
have boen fumigated and the children are putting on their beBt bibs
and tuckers to prepare for the
good things in sight. Tho council
has had the valuable assistance
assistance of a citizens committee
and the local mine managers the
help of the best London talent.
Above all peace has been proclaimed.
Let us, therefore celebrate.
Tlie time is auspicious. The occasion might be made but it is
ready to hand at Coronation day.
There is going to be a deuce of a
time in the metropolis and Rossland ought to follow suit.
If the thing is done properly and
an excursion or excursions arian-
ged every visitor to the city will
not only drop J]is little <rvu,d but will
also go away seeing for himself
that times are good in the Golden
City.
Very shortly afler Coronation
day Nelson will celebrate with
great eclat Dominion day. Many
of the features which will grace
that festival might be brought to
this city. Grand Forks and
Greenwood would no doubt chip
in. Races could be got up for the
school children who have had a
lugubrious time of late, baseball
matches, the tennis clubs might
challenge the clubB of other cities,
and there might be pulled off a
boxing match at the opera house
or International.
The whole thing would not cost
a great deal 0! money and money
spent in advertising the town is
well expended. Coming as it
would, on top of all the feeble rumors as to the decadence of this city
it would be a complete refutation
oj the basele?s calumnies. We
would all have a good time, give
our visitors a good time, advertise
the city and make a little money
on the side.
M. Damico has been doing some
more work on the Hamilton group,
Twelve Mile, and has struck five
inches of promising ore in the lower drift.
Several cases arising out of the
debts of the Iron Horse group, for

Slocan Mining Notes.
A car of zinc ore came down
Saturday from the Bosun, consigned to Antwerp, Belgium.
Kandolf Bruce came in from
East Kootenay Friday, to look after his mineral holdings here.
Prank Dick and Jack Wafer
went out Monday to start work on
the Rose, on tho first north fork of
Lemon.
Pete Swan haB taken a lease on
the Highland Light, situated on
the north side of Ten Mile, close to
Alvin.
The Enterprise Mines are applying for a crown grant on the Montezuma claim, Ten Mile on whicb
is located their concentrator.
The sheriff's sale of McKinnon
inlerest in the Hampton groups,
which was to have taken place en
23rd, did not materialize.
The following excerp from the
London Times referring to the use
of tostB to determine which explosive's muy be used and which
may not, iB recommended to the
attention of A. C. Gait. The test is
carried out in the Woolwich
marshes in which is built a shed
which contains a wrought-irontube !
or gallery lying prone upon the
earth, some 25 feet long, and four
leet in diameter. Side by side
with it and entering it near each
end aro pipes, with valve* and
coeita, ar.d a g:,B holder. By means
of a centrifugal fan driven by a
small engine, the gallery can be
filled with a mixture of gas and
air—a highly inflammable and explosive mixture, which is to form
the medium for testing the be- '
havior of the explosives.
At one end of the gallery are arrangements for fixing a small, es--j
pecially made cannon, which, in
position, completely closes the
tube. The other end is rendered
gas tight for the moment by a disc
of varnished paper.
Into the cannon, which has a
bore of between one and two inches
in diameter, and is some two feet in
length, is rammed firmly with fine
dry clay, a charge of the explosive
under examination. When the
process of abutting up the gallery
and filling it with the mixed gas
and air has been gone through, the
thirge, or, in mining phraseology,
the "shot" is fired. There is a
deafening report, the paper disc is
blown to atoms, and perhaps some
flame is seen or indicated by certain arrangements for the purpose.
If so, it means that tbe gaseous
mixture has ignited, and that is
considered lobe a reflection on the
character furs ifety of ih ■ explosive,
and for the purpose of the official
test more than two "black-balls" or
ignitions in 40 ehots  will bo fatal.
All this is not new, and the
Home ollicu cannot claim any
great credit for originality. Kindred experiments bave boon made
in Engl ud by the Federated Institution of Mining Engineers and
by smaller bodies and niineownerH;
and a somewhat similar apparatus
is in existence in Germany,

The fi th annual meeting of the "shareholders
of the Crow's Nest Pass Coal company was held
in Toronto on March 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.
/]k\ This company's assets are their coal mines
Kill. and the townsieo.' Fernie.   Four years ago this
company had no transportation facilities, and their
stock sold aa low as eleven cents per share. Today their stock iu 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, silver, lead, iron, lime, Are clay,
platinum, and a fine stockraising country, and it
Is tbe 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 oer share down, and ten cents per
month until fully paid, wi h non-forfeiture clause.
This price is subject to twenty-five cents advance
without notiee as sion 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 shares ae an example. This
would be a fair profit on an investment of ten
dollars per month for eleven months. We invite
the fullest inspection of the company's affairs by
intending purchasers. For further information

feature of the day was the determined buying of Payne. In Toronto there were a great nnmber of
shares sold, and also in Rossland
although one sale has at present
been reported inasmuch as they
were late of record. The cause assigned is the locating of the ore
bodies at depth on the mine, the
successful working of the new mill,
and the report that the Payne has

liabilities of the company. It is
also provided the debts of the

A meeting [of the boards of the
two companies will be held at an

A request was made at the meeting by tho shareholders far a local
Some inquisitives (rubbernecks)
noticfd yesterday afternoon that
there were shipped over the C. P. R.
up wards of seven car loads of "ore"
from the Centre Star and War
Ea gle, and the unaccustomed spec
tacle was too much for them. En
quiry, however, elicited the fact
that there was no reason for the
scare. As yet the War Eagle and
Centre Star do not intend to do
anything more than to talk about
the 400 tons of ore they intend to
ship daily, commencing "some
time in June," to quote the worthy
mine manager. The ore is at present not being shipped.
The Centre Star has, however,
been annexed by the C. P. R. which
company is laying the waste products of the mine upon its railway
bed near Nelson for ballast.
About 20 cars have been shipped
altogether so far, and a dividend is
hardly as yet probable. Stock
might, however, advance another
cent or two. When the mine
really gets down to business it will
be different, but it must be remembered that a but a business management is necessary.
One of the seven cars contained
30 tons of ore shipped from the
War Eagle.

THEY HAD A GOOD TIME
Visit of the Rossland Odd
Trail.
Fellows   to
The RosBland lodge No. 36 of
Odd Fellows went down in a body
of 30 strong to Trail last evening
for the purpose of conferring the
second degree on two candidates.
The occasion was made one, in true
Odd Fellows style, of much jollity.
The local degree team was escorted
by its own orchestra of vocalists
and trumpeters of which latter
there there is no lack in the order.
Their approach to the smoky
city was known while yet at the
milk ranch and amid screams of
chil lie 1 an 1 tht gtz) of admiring citizens, the Rosslanders captured the willing town.
A general good time was had
after the degree was conferred on
the neopytes, when everybody ad-
jo lrned to a banquet at the Arlington hotel where a program of
songs, instrumental music, and
speeches was faithfully carried out.
It must not be forgotten to be
mentioned that the party was under the "care" of the Noble Grand,
