Testa's Doing*
Aooordlng to eastern newspaper
reports strange things are happening at Wardencliffe, L. I., where
Tesla has his laboratory.
Ever since Mr. Tesla retired from
the publio gaze and hid himse'f in
Long Island, he haB been oredited
with performing strange feats.
These rumors are at last confirmed,
for Bome time, residents about the
laboratory have been startled by
vivid flashes of, light emanating
from a tall tower erected by the inventor. Just what this tall tower,
and the gleams and Hashes whioh
come and go, may mean, no one
knows; but it is to be inferred that
Mr. Tesla is bent upon improving
the present methods of telegraphing by the Hertzian waves.

STILL ANOTHER MINE OPENS.
After a shut down of five years the enterprise of Charles
JacksoD has reopened the Iron Horse which haa been working
quietly for a week past. A carload of ore will be shipped today.
Mr. Jackson says that he has come upon a promising lead of ore
30 feet in width which runs some 34 per oent excess units of
iron over silica. This means that a low smelting rate will be
obtained, aa an excess unit of iron carries a rebate of ten centa.
Theore ia fair value and will pay to work.
Thia ia yet another mine added to the already growing list
Qf shippers in the camp. The Iron Horse is situated on the lead
running from Red Mountain to the Kootenay. Values have
been proved on both ends and now they are established in the
middle. The discovery will inevitably lead to other properties
strung along this vein being developed.
THE RUSSIAN STRIKES
Governor of Province Is
Ordered Not to Interfere.
London, Aug. 12.—The Russian
correspondent of the Times says
that the Kieff and Odessa tramway
employees have resumed work
throughout the district, on the understanding that their grievances
ahall be considered, and important
concessions granted. Governor
Arsenieff was atriotly enjoined not
to interfere with the strikers unless
they were disorderly, but if order
waa disturbed he was authorized to
use the rifle.
There was a serious riot on the
outskirts of Odessa arising out ot
a meeting of protest held by the
sugar workmen. This being illegal,
tbe men were repeatedly oharged
by several hundred Cossacks, causing a loss of many lives and the
injuring of hundreds of men. The
strikers made no resistance, and
deep indignation is expressed at
the action of Minister Plehve,
who orders Governor Arsenieff carried out in dispersing the strikers.

COOPER CREEK RIVALS POPLAR
New Fields in the Lardo Country
Establish Continuity of the

Thousands of Acres of Fine
Timber are Destroyed.
Vancouver, Aug. 12. — Three
fierce forest fires are raging up the
coast, one at Seohelt, another at
the Back Channel, and the third
behind Powell lake.
The last ia worst of all. It ia
sweeping across the country in a
tornado of fire licking up everything in its path. The country in
which it is running is thickly timbered, and the destruction is appalling.
Indians arriving here from Powell lake thia morning reported that
many thousands of acres of timber
have already been deatroyed.
Nelson, Aug. *12.—News of
stampede to Cooper creek following
a big strike there on Monday was
brought to Nelson by arrivals from
Poplar oreek yesterday. Few particulars of the new strike had been
received before the train left Pop
lar creek, but it was understood
some big leads of tbe aamerioh free
milling ore as occurs in the Poplar
strikes had been found on Cooper
creek, several miles above tbe railway traok.
Cooper creek is a large, swift
stream and runs into the Lardeau
river about four miles above the
head of Kootenay Lake and 20
miles east of Poplar creek. It
heads in the seme glacier as Poplar
oreek, The oountry .through which
the creek runs is described as being terribly rough, even in that
country where rough mountains are
plentiful everywhere, and in the
higher portions it is a veritable
abode of desolation. If the gold is
plentiful, however, the roughness
of the country will have but little
effect on the eager prospectors who
are heading there.
The rich strikes made by the
Swedes at the head of Poplar creek
are on the opposite side of the
divide in whioh Cooper creek heads,
and if thiB new strike proven to be
of the importance that the reports
make it, then it will show that the
full extent of the rich leads are
hardly guessed at yet.

Coast Unionism
Three years ago organized labor
oould muster 200 men in Victoria.
Today there are 2000 and more
trades and labor unionists in the
city. The work of organization
during the several years past waB
conducted along trade autonomy
lines. In other words, all unions
organized by this organizing committee of the Trades and Labor
Council bave been chartered by the
international of their craft, or by
the Dominion Trades Congress
when an international of a particular oraft or calling did exist. The
growth of unionism has been phenomenal for an old conservative
oity like Viotoria.

THE GRAND TRUNK
Two objections are made to the
railway policy of the Liberal government with regard to tho construction of the Grand Trunk Pacific transcontinental   line.   . The
first objection is that which led to
the resignation of  Minister  Blair
from the Laurier cabinet, a resignation which is much to bo regretted.
and which is the paralleling in the
eastern portion of the line of the
Intercolonial railway, a government
road.   The seoond objection is of a
double nature, the first part being
tbat   whioh   objects   to   anything
short of a public line and the sec.
ond   the length of the franchise.
As to the paralleling of the Intercolonial, it does not greatly concern the west, except in  so far as
the prosperity or the reverse of one
portion of the Dominion naturally
affects all other portions, and ex
cept the likelihood of a strenuous
opposition affecting the receipts of
the   government liue, and so  its
apparent failure being held up a?
an argument against public ownership.    It   is probable, however,
that were the Intercolonial taken
out of politics and  no longer made
- the happy hunting grounds of politioal nepotism^ that there would be.
no trouble as to the line paying.
Again the existence of a competitive railway will probably not be
objected to by eastern Canadians
who are directly affected. A deeper
objection   is   that   of   the failure
to     take    the      opportunity    of
establishing    government   ownership.    Now the Would thinks this
objeotion is well founded, but at
the same time recognizes two facts,
first, that with   the present civil
service   Byatem the Grand Trunk
would be plunged into  the sea of
politics   and made  the vehicle of
rewarding    hundreds     of   greedy
office seekers who would be of tbe
one   political   stamp.     Until the
system of civil Bervice be placed on
an absolutely non-political basis,
the   efficient administration  of  a
government railroad is materially
barred.    It is probable that in any
case it would bo better than private
ownership.   It is possible lhat it
might be worse.     One good thing
haa   happened, which is, that the
Laurier policy has committed more
than one member of the Conservative opposition to government own-
ship, affording a striking illustration of one of tho bone/its of party
government.    But   that the franchise should be extended for a term
of two   generations is bad.   With
the government  building   a large
portion of the line and guarantee'
ing the success of  tho other, there
was no   reason   for   itB   adoption
which seems worth considering.
Yet on tha whole the Laurier
policy is to be commended. He
has not gone far enough in this
matter no more than he has done
io the question of Oriental immigration. Still the polioy is a distinct step, in that no subsidies are
granted,   another step forward in
that the prinoiple of government
ownership eventually is recognized
and one yet further when tho government has a clear voice in the
making of the freight and passenger rates. For, on the one hand
the government will not so far reduce rateB as to allow the burden
of the guaranteed profits to fall on
the general community, nor on the
other will it permit charges which
are based on the principle of being
as high as the business handled
will stand. This will make for
fairer rateH.
But for British Columbians, excepting thoBe whe are born growlers, it is hard to look a gift horse in
the mouth. The railway will open
up a rich mining, and also agricultural country, aud will further
give the province another important seaport, whioh will be the
nearest practioal point of departure for the Orient, wherein there is
a great and growing market for
Canadian manufactures. Connecting feeders between the parallel
lines of the C. P. R. and Grand
Trunk and Great Northern will
open up the province and attract
immigration of a' desirable nature,
juBt as long aB the Oriental is systematically kept out. For this
reason alone British Columbia has
muoh to thank the Ottawa government.
INDEPENDENCE
Shirt waists and dainty
linen are made delightfully
clean and fresh with Sunlight Soap. 6B
however, protest against the popular
—though nevertheless misguided—
view entertained by party organs
and partisans: that an independent
paper sacrifices its independence
when it treats politically upon any
publio question. To say tbat no
paper or individual can discuss or
take a definite stand on questions
political without becoming partisan is equivalent to saying, that
no person, outside of party followers, are justified in the use of tbe
ballot.
It is possible to be a politician
without becoming a slave to party!
Such do not forfeit their independence, but give evidence of a
citizenship unknown to the devotee of party, One of the greatest
of British statesmen once said:
"A wise man may change his
views; a fool never!" The independent politician is the wise man;
the party hack is deserving of the
other title.
CONSERVATIVE PLATFORM
"The way of the transgressor iH
hard!" The foregoing is especially
applicable to the public life of journalism, says the New Glasgow, N.
S., Times. The average newspaper
reader says: this paper and that
paper is too prejudiced in its political views; and the party organs
retaliate by Baying the independent preps is too susceptible to the
monied influence of syndicates or
individuals accentuated by other
motives than those pertaining to
the public good.
The latest members of the independent press to fall victims to tbe
headman's axe wielded by the paid
tools of political parties are the
Toronto News, and the Montreal
Daily Witness. These two newspapers are supposed to be independent in politics, one is publish-
in Toronto, and is under the management of J. S. Willison, formerly
of the Toronto Globe. It is a -new
publication, having started out
only a few months ago, ahd the
reading public has not yet become
sufficiently conversant with its
writings to pass anything like a
correct estimate of its tone. Tbe
Montreal Witness is an old friend
in the field of Canadian journalism,
and will be readily admitted by all
classeB of newspaper readers—except narrow minded bigoted individuals whose support is not
worth having—to be one of tbe
most broad minded aud ably edited papers published in Canada, or
in, faot in any country.
These two admittedly independent organs have taken a decided,
though opposite view, on the government railway policy. The News
strongly advocates the party policy
and censures the late minister of
railways. Tho Witness as forcibly
critioises the government policy
and upholds the attitude of Mr.
Blair. As a result, the Tory press
wiihont exception severely scores
the News for its loss of independence; whilst that part of the
press claiming allegiance to the
host of liberalism—with rare exceptions—are most condemnatory
in their reference to the stand
taken by the Witness. The one is
held up as being the tool of Grand
Trunk money bags, whilst the
other figures as an hypocrite and
traitor.
We do not purpose taking issue
with either one of these very excellent papers in the path they
have been pleased to map out on
this particular  policy:     We  do,
[Adopted nt. Rovolxtolco, September 13th, 1902.]
I. Thut thib convention reofflrras the policy
of the party in mutters of provincial roads and
trails; the ownership and control of railways
und 1 lie development of the agricultural re-
Hources of tlie province uh laid down in the
platform adopted in October, 18!Kt, which is aa
follows;
"To actively aid in the construction of trails
throughout the undeveloped portions of tho
province and thu building ol provincial trunk
roads of public necessity.
"To adopt the principles of government ownership of railways in ho far as tlie circumstances of the province wil) admit, and the
udoptiou of the principle that no bonus should
bo granted to any railway company which
docs not give the government of the provinco
controlof rates over lines bonused, together
with tho option of purchase.
"To actively assist, hy slate aid in the development of the agricultural resources ot tho
province."
__2. Thut in the mean!ime and until the railway policy above set forth can bo accomplished, a general railway act be passed giving
freedom to construct, 'railways under certain
approved regulations, analogous to tho system
that has resulted in such extensive railway
construction in the United States, with ao
much advantage to trade and cntiuucrco.
3. That to encourage the mil.ing Industry,
the taxation of metalliferous mines should be
on the basisofapereentageont.hu not profits.
1. Thut. the government ownership of tele
phone systems should be brought, about as a
lirst step in tho acquisition of public utilities.
ft. That a portion of every coal area here
after to bo disposed of should bo reserved from
sale or lease, so that state owned mines may be
easily accessible, if their operation bocouieu
necessary or advisable.
(1. That in tho pulp land leases provision
should be made for reforesting and that steps
should bo taken for the general preservation of
forests by guarding against the wasteful destruction of timber.
7. That the legislature and government of
tho province should persevere in the effort to
secure the exclusion of Asiatic labor.
8. That the matter of better terms In the
way of subsidy and appropriations for the
province should be vigorously pressed upon tho
Dominion government.
9. That the silver-lead industries of the provinco bo fostered and encouraged by the imposition of increased customs duties on lead and
lead products imported into Canada, and that
the Conservative members of the nonunion
House be uvged to support any mutlon introduced for such a purpose,
10. That as industrial disput es almost invariably result in great loss and injury both to tho
parties directly concerned and to tho public,
legislation should be passed ki provide means
for an amicable udjustnicnt of such disputes
between employers and employos.
II. That it is advisable to foster tho iiinuu
fact ure of tho raw products of tho province
within the province as far as practicable by
means of taxation on thesaid raw product s.subject to rebate of the same iu whole or part
when manufactured ln ilritish Columbia.
Conservative Conventions
At a meeting of Iho executive of the Provin
cial Conservative AnKociation, held at Vancouver, tlie province was divided into Ave divisions for organization purposes. Tlie Koote

Advance of 250 Per Cent Is Shown

Best ally in the city,
The advance of her outward and
inward trade by leaps and bounds
in reoent years is one of the remarkable things in Canada's history, Not only does it attract attention beyond the seas, but, aa the
Monetary Times points out, the intelligent portion of the United
States people, especially those of
the northern and northwestern
states, observe our growing trade
and are pressing for reciprocity
with us. In the year 1880 the
aggregate trade of Canada amounted to *174,OO0,0OO; in 1888 it was
$202,000,000. By 1896 it had advanced to $239,000,000; in 1091 it
was $396,000, and this year it
reaoheB $424,003,000. These figures
are noteworthy, not only for their
size, but for their relative inorease
in two decades
The change in the character of
our exports is an element to be
borne in  mind.     Years  ago the
great item of Canada's export was
lumber and  timber, ranging from
$25,000,000 to $30,000,000 a year in
value.   Io 1873, it constituted one-
third of all our home export; in
1881, 31 per oent, and as late as
1890 32 per cent, while the item
of  animals  and   their  produots,
which attained such large proportions  in  reoent  years,  was then
quite 'subsidiary.   For the last few
years, two divisions of our export
trade, live and dead meats, including dairy produoe, and produots 0
the field, have surpassed forest products in export value.    Minerals
form a   muoh  more  considerable
item of our outward trade.   Exports of these last year. $34,497,000,
were ten times what they were 20
years before.   Our fishery produot
has developed, too, and manufactures  shipped abroad have made
strides whioh are illustrated if we
compare the $16,000,000 and $18,'
000,000 of manufactures exported
in 1901 and 1902 with the $3,000,-
000 of 1882 and the $6,000,000 of
1892 under the same category.
The oharacter of our import trade
varied somewhat in the last 20
years. In 1882, out of total imports
amounting to $111,145 000, we
bought $50,356,000 worth from
Oreat Britain and $47,006,000
worth from the United States. Today, out of total imports of $196,-
000,000 we buy only $49,000,000
worth from the old country and
$114,740,000 worth from the States.
That iB to say, the proportion of
our purchases from Oreat Britain
was 45 per oent in 1882, and 25.36
per oent in 1902, while from the
United States it was 42.33 pe'
cent in 1882, and has grown to 58.4
per oent last year. Almost half
these purchases from the States.
however, were raw materials for
manufactures, suoh as raw cotton,
orude rubber, wool, tobaoco, hides,
chemicals, besides Bteel rails and
Gun   T.tts
A special commission appointed
by the French Admiralty has been
experimenting with a view to obtaining conclusive data as to what
would be the effect on a battleship
when the guns in the fore turret
were fired. The battleship "Henri
IV." was selected for the purposes
of these tester Sheep were distributed at the posts whioh in action
would be oocupied by the members
of the crew _ serving the smaller
guns over whioh the big turret Are.
After the discharge the sheep were
examined, and though found to be
stunned were otherwise uninjured.
It was therefore conoluded that 1 s
men have a greater power of resistance than sheep, the gunners in
the turret should experience no serious harm through the firing of tbe
guns.

SIMILKAMEEN CITY, B. C
Now Is the Time to Buy Lots
in Similkameen City, B. ©.
CAMP HEDLEY iB the mosl talked of oamp in the provinoe, and situated in the centre is Similkameen City, surrounded by
rich mines which will shortly have large payrolls. Over 200 lots have been sold to business people who realize that Similkameen will become the metropolis of this district. The Nickel Plate mines have expended $300,000 in development and are at
present building tramways and a 40-stamp mill. Arrangements are being made for the erection of a large smelter at Similkameen City which will cost about a million dollars. Besides the Nickel Plate group of olaims being developed by one of the richest
mining oompanies in North Amerioa, there are several other groups and properties whioh will shortly be developed, among them
being tbe Kingston Mines, Rollo, Wellington, Winnipeg, Red Chief and Pollock. Situated aa it is in the beautiful Similkameen
valley, midway between Prinoet n and Keremeos, and protected from all opposition in the valley by adjoining a large Indian
reservation, this townsite will become one of the principal mining camps of the Pacific Northwest. It was only a short time ago
that lota in Rossland, Nelson, Greenwood and other mining centres were selling for the same prioe that they are today being sold
for in Similkameen.   Come in before tbe boom and double your money.
Similkameen City to Have Two Railways.
The Viotoria, Vanoouver & Eastern and the Canadian Pacific railwaya are atarting immediate construction for the Similkameen,
whioh will make this town a railroad oentre and divisional poiut, and when these competing lines are completed through to the
Pacific ooast they will become the main through lines, being the shortest route from the interior to the coast. A large sawmill is
running steadily on the weBt addition, the only available timber for miles around. The main street is 90 feet wide, being all
cleared and ready for building purposes. All railways, roads, telegraph and telephone lines will have to come through this
townsite whioh is looated in the centre of the whole Similkameen valley and will beoome the largest distributing point and
mining centre in British Columbia.
Similkameen City Lots Will Make You Rich.
