Tokio, July 38.—It has leaked
out that the Imperial government
regards the present situation as most
serious, and that war is likely to
break out at any moment. The
railway officials have been notified
that they must be prepared to
transport troops at any time This
notiifioation is all the more necessary, as the railroads here are
worked upon the English block
system, only one train being allowed upon a section at the one
An all rail route is now open all

thousands of tons of ooal in reserve.
The recent declarations of Russia with regard to Manchuria,
barely veiling their hostility, the
ominous strengthening of its fleet
in the Yellow Sea, the encroachment at Yalu, the building of a
Russian telegraph line crossing the
western section of Korea, the constant interference with Korean
politios, the refusal of Russia to
permit of the opening of the treaty
port of Wuji in Korea, in defiance
of treaty engagements, the quite
recent declaration that the various
consulates will not be allowed to
acquire territorial right, suoh as
exist in every other treaty port in
China, in Manchuria, the refusal to
evacuate Newohwang, and last but
not least the mobilization of 128,-
000 troops in Russia in addition to
the present strong corps now on
the ground; all show that Russia
is preparing aotively for war, aud
has no intention to recede from its
present position.
It is true that the alliance with
Great Britain praotioally precludes
a declaration of hostilities without
oonsultation, but it is thought in
political circles here that the force
of circumstances will enmesh Qreat
Britain, and possibly the United
States, in the maze of Far Eastern
The well informed think, however, that there will be no outbreak until the setting in of the
severe and long Siberian winter
prevents rapid transportation, and
Russia will have to depend upon
the forces she may be able to assemble on her eastern frontier
during the present season of the
The Japanese  themselves have
put little faith in the recent utterances of the Russian war minister while here, and are confident
that a sharp winter's campaign
will result in the abandonment of
Manchuria and as an after result
the oementing of an alliance between Japan and China, giving the
control to the former country,
which the present jealousy of the
old time premier power, and its
fear of the ominous bulk of the
Russian Bear overshadowing Peking now almost entirely preclude.
Once let Russian prestige get a set
back, and it is thought in Tokio
that Peking will be eager for that
EaBtern alliance from whioh it at
present keeps jealously aloof.

The chairman of the Carnival
committee is of the opinion that
there will be no trouble in raising
the $3000 necessary for the proper
celebration of the carnival, even
$3500 if necessary. Over $2000
are already in sight and the remainder will easily be reached by
the unremitting eflorts of the really
excellent finanoe committee at
work. This sum of money has allowed the general committee to be
generous in its dealings with the
demands of the various subcommittees and altogether the celebration will be of no mean order. The
sum of money mentioned is, of
course, exolusive of gate receipts,
which should easily total $1500
with the attractions afforded.

rule should be adopted, whioh  is
that any amateur competing for  a

The Provincial Mining Association of British Columbia has started well on its career, and by its
friendly offices at Fernie in the
spring, has done much in that
alone to commend it to the province.
The views it haB taken of matters
mining, which have been brought
to the attention of the provincial
legislature, are not only backed by
the great majority of the electors
but are in consonance with common sense. But there is a feeling
in some quarters, which the World
thinks unjustifiable, which is that
the Mining Association should
eschew questions relative to the
relations of capital and labor.
Now in matters mining, there is
no one condition that is of greater
importance than that very relation,
and a mining association which
neglected labor as a factor, would
fall to the ground, and be shorn of
its popularity, and therefore power.
In the past the Provincial Mining
Association has overridden such
attempts to limit its usefulness and
it may fairly be trusted to do so
in the future.
It would be amusing to watch
the efforts of the wily knocker,were
it not so exasperating, to hurt this
oamp. Despite his malignant
efforts, the camp will flourish.
Latterly things have taken a decid -
ed turn for the better, and the
knocker is after real estate. He
enquires cautiously and professes
to be thunderstruck at the prices
asked. "Why, don't you know the
oamp is going to Hades," is hiB
UBualprotest. The knocker evidently thinks that property in Hades
will be a good investment, forgetting that a population of knockers
does not conduce to boom values.
As a matter of fact the majority
of holders of real estate are by no
means willing to let loose their
hold. They are fully aware of the
fact that the clear demonstration
of the Elmore concentrating proceBB
will mean the doubling and tripling
of the population of the camp.
There are plenty of mines in the
oamp, which are fairly well developed, many having thousands of
tons of ore blocked out, which are
merely making assurance doubly
sure before beginning to ship. Some
have indeed already .started, and
most are eagerly watching the experiments on Red Mountain.
When Rossland becomes a greater
Butte, and that day is fast nearing,
it is breaking already, realty will
command all kinds of prices, and
the knocker who iB looking after
his own Hellish interests will chortle
with glee over the gullibility of the
suckers he has succeeded in fooling.
lines of the Natal Act, and the
faot tbat the increased tax upon
Chinese is not to come into force
for many months yet, plainly
shows that tl e workingman of
British Columbia is to receive no
consideration from the Laurier
government in regard to this matter. As to whether the principles
of the Natal Act can with advantage be applied to Canada as a
whole, there may be difference of
opinion in some parts of the Dominion, but in British Columbia
none, and Sir Wilfrid Laurier has
expressed himself as firmly opposed to the practically unanimous
opinion of this Province. He is
entitled to his opinion, but when
the question arises. "Has the
Proviuce the right to legislate in
such matters to suit itself," it is
not a matter of opinion but a
matter of law, and there ia a proper methed of settlement. An
appeal to the courts would settle
the matter once and for all time.
The Dominion government refuses to consent to an adjudication
because it is of the opinion that
such legislation is undesirable as
applied to any part of Canada. It
therefore baBes ita action upon the
ground of policy upon which it
can have no standing, if the enforcement of the law in question is
within the jurisdiction of the Province. The Province is pledged to
against this invasion of the provincial prerogative by the only means
in their power—continual re-enact,
ment of the required legislation
until the question of jurisdiction
is settled by the courts. The Pro^
vincial Liberal party on the other
hand haB expressed itself as against
re- enactment, and by its stand
declares itself in favor of a Dominion usurpation of provincial rights.
Its policy is to not only allow the
Dominion government to force
their policy on the people of the
province but to invalidate the
p»licy of the province even at the
expense of a breach of the consiit
ution. Every elector in the Pro<
vince who has any interest in the
future welfare of the country
should see to it that his ballot
strengthens the hands of those who
are fighting against the yellow invasion and endeavoring to further
the development of British Columbia as a white man's home.

Progress of the Big Smelter Trouble at Denver,
The Denver post gives the following account relative to the importation of men from Joplin into Colorado to break tbe smelter Btrike
over the demand for an eight hour
"Locked up in a day coach and
guarded by armed men, eixty-two
laborers were taken into the Globe
smelter yesterday, but as aoon as
they were released from this portable prison, fifty-eight of them escaped.
"One of their number, who seized
hiB grip and attempt to escape at
Brush, Colorado, waB shot in the
leg by a local constable, who
thought he waB an escaping prisoner
of the legal authorities.
"Moat of the men were give work
on a canal at Golden, and will go
there tonight.
"The shipment of men came
from Joplin, Missouri, where Lee
Willis, a recruiting agent of the
American Smelting and Refining
company,has been for aeveral days,
aided by Lee Teele, an employment
agent of tbat place.
"The men charge lhat the situation was misrepresented to them,
else they would not have consented
to some to Colorado. Many are
membera of other unions.

a day for nine and ten hours,' aaid
E. P. HilJ of Joplin, 'and they aeaur-

came from Joplin, some from Webb

We were put into a day coach on

beer and gave us sandwiohes and a cup of coffee.

yelled after him and the orowd, seeing he was under guard, pursued.
A looal officer shot him in the leg
and oaptured him, but the train

" 'When we were near Denver a
brakeman came through and told
some of the boys they were strikebreakers and we began to inquire.
The train orew said a strike was on

been told there was no strike, and
58 of ua walked out.'
. "John D. Carson of Toronto.Ohio,
who was found at Webb City, Missouri, said:
" 'There was misrepresentation
of everything. Some of us deposited $3, believing we were -to get
first class work, and one fellow
paid $12, his full fare to Denver.
The railroad fare was to be taken
out of our wages. All that Hill
has said is true, but we were not
fed enough for dogs, and no better.
When we reached Denver the

let no one paBs.

"The men gathered at the place
of Max Malich at Globeville and
spent the day. They were fed there
by the Smeltermen's Union and
lodged at the Salvation Army barracks. Today they will be sent to

rioh mines whioh will shortly have large payrolls. Over 200 lots have been sold to busineBa 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 Bmelter ac Similkameen City which will oost about a million dollars. Besides the Nickel Plate group of claims being developed by one of the richest
mining companies in North America, there are several other groups and properties whioh will shortly be developed, among them
being the Kingston Mines, Hollo, Wellington, Winnipeg, Red Chief and Pollock. Situated as it is in the beautiful Similkameen
valley, midway between Princeton 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 Pacifio Northwest. It was only a short time ago

running steadily on the west addition, the only available timber for milea 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

Nelson, July 28,—A telegram
received yesterday by the secretary

that the Shamrocks of Montreal

Agricultural society.
Since their match with the New
Westminsters, the local team has
been sticking steadily to work, and
its members intend to continue doing bo. Through the strongness of
its team Nelson is now looked on
as the lacrosse centre for the interior of the province, and if the
team keepB on improving itB already splendid form there is a
good chance tbat by the time the
date for the match comes around
that it will be able to defeat the
Montreal players. All the Nelson
team needs to make it one of tbe
strongest lacrosse teams in Canada

Under the auspices of the
Preparations Made to Recommence at Once on a
Large Scale.
The St. Eugene mine, at Moyie,
one of the biggest lead mines in the
country, is to resume operations.
Manager Cronin sayB it will take
two months to get the mine running at itB normal capacity, but he
expects that the property will be
running again in that time. He
further remarked: "I shall probably take personal oharge of the
St. Eugene again. First of all we
must put in more power and we
shall add an engine to run the mill
for water power iB not sufficient
there to run all the year round.
We shall also put in some zinc concentrators. In the past our zinc
has gone oyer with the tailings. I
do not know that we shall be able
to ship the zinc at present, but we
shall certainly save it until such
time as the market for it opens.
We formerly shipped 2500 tons of
concentrates a month, which means
the mining of about 10,000 tons of
crude ore, and from that we shall
probably be able to save 300 tons
of zinc concentrates.
"Sinoe we stopped shipping at
the St. Eugene, we have spent
about $150,000 in development, and
have ore enough for two or three
years at our normal rate of pro
duction. We are down in a winze
seventy feet below the level of Moyie
lake, but we are not troubled much
with seepage water, as the lake is
practically bottomed with a waterproof layer of mud and rock.
