London, March 21.—Although
the betting on the annual Oxford-

tomorrow, is three to one in favor
of the Cambridge crew, the Oxford
oarsmen latterly have improved
enough to promise a better Btruggle
than the prophets anticipated.
Both crews finished their heavy
work this morning and went to see
the Queen's club this afternoon to
witness the annual field sports between the two universities. There
are two Americans, D. Milbum and
Milbum of Buffalo, in the Oxford
boat. They have shown good form

Successful Meeting Held Last  Night
--New Members ore Joining.
There was a good attendance at
the meeting of the Liberal associ-

sociation were discussed. The
question of the improper carrying
out of the quarantine was spoken
to, but was finally postponed to the
next session for regular motion.
It was decided lhat in future
meetings should be held on the
first and third Thursday of each
month. The motion to subject
members desiring to join to a
scrutiny, really aimed at the more
advanced members of the party
was turned down.

London, Marcb.21.—Lord Francis
Hope was granted a divorce this
morning on the ground of the misconduct of his wife, (May Yohe)
with Putnam Bradley Strong, of
New York.
Counsel for Lord Hope lengthily'
detailed the marriage of his client
of May Yohe, their visit to the1
United States in 1900, the meeting
with Strong, and the subsequent
intimacy of the respondent and corespondent ending with their departure for Japan under the name
of Mr. and Mrs. J. P. Smith.
Lord Hope, who is still suffering
from the amputation of his leg, corroborated counsel's statements.
He said he had no suspicion whatever of his wife when he left her
alone, in a flat in New Yoik. He
first noticed a change in her behavior at the end of March 1901,
and in April his wife insisted on a
separation. Affidavits were read
in proof of the misconduct of Lady
Hope and the decree with costs was
pronounced.

Hongkong, March 21.—Advices
from Canton, says it is credibly
reported there that the viceroy has
received telegrams from Lungchao,
on the Annam border alleging that
the whole of Marshal Su's troops-
have deserted and joined the rebels. If this be true, Bays the advices, it adds to the revolutionists
20,000 foreign armed and drilled
troops, capable of defeating any
force the imperialists can use.
The telegrams further say the
country is undoubtedly ripe for
rebellion. Robberies are of fre
quent occurence. The long continued drought prevents the planting of spring rice and this has
led the farm laborers to become
rebellious. Well informed pt-rjons
consider a rebellion similar to that
of theTaepings probable.

St. Paul, Minn., March 21.—
Three hundred Great Northern passengers from points west of the
eastern Montana line, 20 tons of
mail matter and car after car of
baggage all snow bound in North
Dakota since last Friday, reached
St. Paul last night. The first section of the through train pulled in
late last evening, breaking a blockade that lasted 150 hours.
Passengers told stories of frontier
privations. They were of the first
east bound overland train biiow
bound and were caught at Stanley,
N. D., a station which consists of a
side track and a cattle yard. From
Thursday night till Monday morning the passengers were hardly
able to leave the train. A blizzard
raged and no food was to be had
except the limited quantity on the
dining car. The coal in the day
coaches gave out on Sunday.

GRAND
NATIONAL
Shannon Lass Won—King
Edward Scratched
His Horse.
The following telegram wus received by the secretary of the board
of trade, li. W. C. Jackson, this
morning from J. B. Johnson, al
Victoria:
"Redistribution very satisfactory
for Kootenay-Vale. Trail joins
Vmir as one district Have secured lots for drill shed."
Local opinion says lhat this may
he satisfactory to Johnson, but if
he has Baid as much to the government his action in so doing is not
satisfactory to Hossland. That
Trail should be disjoined from
Rossland and made subordinate
rather to Nelson when its interests
are identical with those of this city
is an arrangement which
will not work well at all. If RosBland wantH a road to one of ils outlying mines and Nelson also wants
one this new arrangement will not
result advantageously for this district.
Liverpool, March 21. — The
Grand National Steeplechase was
won by Shannon Lass. Matthew
was second and Manifesto was
third.   Twenty-one horses ran.
The Grand National Steeplechase
of 2525 sovereigns is a handicap for
five-year-olds and upwards, distance about four miles and 850
yards. Sportsmen turned out in
force to see the steeplechase run,
though the interest of the general
public in the event waned with tho
scratching of King Edward's entry, Ambush II and the knowledge
that his majesty consequently,
would not attend the meeting,
the preliminary racing was not
of much interest.
The Seftnn Park plate, 'for two-
year-olds was won hy Wolfshall,
Rushlight, was second and Utile
Widow was third.
In the result none of thc favorites were placed. The three placed
horses started respectively at
twenty to ono against, fifty to one
against, and ten to six against.
DrumOree, the favorite, never showed in front. A horse with a very
similar name, Drnmree, led to the
beeches, where liarsac drew to the
front hut gave way over the water
to Helium. Then Matthew assumed the lead, but was passed at the
last fenoe by Shannon Lass who
won by three lengths. The same
distance separated second and
third horses.

THE RUSSIAN REPLY.
The Russian reply to the Anglo-
Japanese alliance has one significant Bentenoe "Russia desires that
preservation of the status quo a id
general peace in the Far East by
the construction of the great Siberian railroad together with its
branch line through Manchuria towards a port always ice free." This
means that Manchuria is to be
Russian, and also that Peking will
always remain within easy striking
distance of the Russian forces.
That Russia intendB to support
this policy can be seen by the despatch of reinforcements|to the front.
A look at the map will show that
the first objective of Russia, the
port of Nicolajevsk at the mouth of
the Amur is away to the north.
VUdivostock is to the eouth of this
but iB north of Korea. The extremity of the peninsula of Korea,
washed by a warm ocean current
Betting in from the Bouth, is ice
free. Any port to the north is
blocked with ice for five or Bix
monthB in the year. Any port
within the gulf of Pechili, i. e.
Newchwang or Tientsin, escapes
the current, although to the south
of Korea, and is also ice blocked
from November to March. The fisrt
ice free port is Chefoo, just north
of the German port of Kiaoohao
and both of which are situated on
the peninsula of Shantung, which
with that of Korea, encloses the ice
blocked gulf of Pechili. Hence
Chefoo or another Shantung port is
the objective of Russia. But to
reach there from Siberia the whole
of Manchuria has to be crossed and
the Chinese province of Chihli
entered upon. The railroad will
skirt the Manchu capital, Peking.
Naturally Japan objects, naturally Germany will not be too favorably disposed to the near presance
of RuBsia. But on the other hand
if any objection is to be lodged it
can only be done effectually before
the completion of the bridges on
the transcontinental railroad makes
that line practicable. Such protest must therefore be taken before
the lapse of the next couple of
years. But should the Chinese
succeed in their attempts at ousting the Manchu usurpers the whole
problem will present a different
aspect, for it is not probable that
the new capital of China will be at
Peking, but rather at its ancient
site Soochow, far to the south.
Hence it will be seen that affairs in
the Far East are gelling very much
tangled.
THE MINERAL TAX.
The unwisdom of the action laken
by the Kaslo convention of the associated boards of trade of the
Kootenays is nowhere more aptly
exemplified than by the recent
visit of Mayor Goodonough of
Kaslo, at the request of his townspeople, to Victoria for the purpose
of protesting against the representations of the Kaslo convention
having any weight with the deliberations of the legislature. The
local board of trade has also sent
down a delegate to help the mayor.
The objection seems to be, from :\.
dispatch from Kaslo published in
the Vancouver News-Advertiser,
chiefly centering upon the tax on
prospectors, and it is to this and to
the lack of clearness in the presentation of the issues that the Kaslo
convention is to bo condemned.
It will be seen that if the government is to have as great a revenue in the future as it has in the
past from the mineral tax that any
reduction in the taxation on low
grade mines iB necesarily made up
by increased taxation on those of
high grade, such as of the Slocan.
At the present time low grade
mines are being taxed from 3 to 30
per cent on their output, whereas
high grade mineB, having ores
whose value exceeds $50 per ton,
are seldom taxed higher than a
fraction over two per cent. Now
the high grade mine owners think
that they are paying all thatshould
be demanded of them, while the
low grade mine owners are of the
opinion lhat they are paying far
too much. In the meantime the
government wants the money and
certainly cannot afford to have the
revenue curtailed in any manner.
But the di(acuity is more apparent
than real for the low grade mines
would be satisfied by seeing that
the tax waB one levied upon the
net profits, or upon the assay values, irrespective of charges. What
is objected to is a tax that presses
the more and more heavily the
lower the grade. Let thiB be done
away with and there will be no
trouble. Afew mines will pay a
lesser taxation than before,
which are just the mines
that should be helped, but
there will be other mines opened, as soon as conditions improve,
which will more than make up for
any slight temporary deficiency.
These conditions are that the
mines should have the cheapest
rates possible on the transportation
of their ores to the smelters and
the bringing of fuel and flux to the
smelters, together with the making
of roads, so that there Bhall not be
an undue expense in shipping ore.
If the government see to it that
these things are obtainable by the
mines the mines would, in a comparatively short period of time,
bear even an increase of the tax.
Half the saving made in this respect would be gladly paid by the
mines at present existing, though
a tax to such an extent would probably militate against the opening
of low grade properties at present
impossible to work.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
As noted in the World a couple
of days since it is being generally
recognized that the situation in
China is growing serious.
The British Columbia legislature
can now take a lesson or two from
the English house. John Dillon
could give the provincials a pointer
on the correct ubo of theological
terms.
At last the redistribution bill has
been brought down to the house on
a basis of -l'J members, giving an
average of one member to each
•1300 of population. This fits in
all right for Victoria but is hardly
fair to the Kootenays. However,
comment is of but little use aB the
probability is that the bill will be
so altered in its progress through
the house that the original drafters
will not be able to recognize it at
the finish.

IS NOT A FAILURE
Scathing Reply From New
Zealand.
OFFICIAL STATEMENT IS MADE
Secretary of Labor Answers  Slanders Uttered by Rossland
Mine Owners,
In December last, says the Kamloops Sentinel, the Rossland Miner
in thc course of a lengthy editorial
on labor laws, declared that the
New Zealand experiments had
proved an utter failure, and that
tho main principle of the conciliation and arbitration act had been,
by recent amendments, abandoned
by the government. Reasoning
from these promises the Minei
strove to bIiow the folly of looking
to this sort of legislation as tho
means of meeting labor difficulties.
The Sentinel, however, is not, for
obvious reasons, disposed to accept
unhesitatingly all the statements
made by the Rossland Miner, and
application was made by this paper
to the New Zealand government
for information respecting the
scope of tho alleged amendments.
The following letter, in reply to
tlie Sentinel's enquiry.waB received
yesterday morning and at once
disposes of tho case the RoBsland
Miner attempted lo make out:
Wellington, 12th Feb., 1902.
The Editor, Inland Sentinel .Kamloops, British Columbia.
Dear Sir—In reply to your letter of the 30th Dec, I have the
honor to state that I am totally
unaware that the conciliation and
arbitration act haB been "so amended as to not only lose its significance but is thereby practically
killed." So far as I know the act
is very much alive and has much
power of kicking. If tho Rossland
Miner reprints articles from the
New Zealand Herald or quotes the
remarks of Messrs. Pirani, G. W.
Russell and Willis, it is only a
proof how misleading utterances
inspired by the bitterness of party
politics may be to people far away
who do not know how to measure
the speakers or writers. When
Sergeant Buzfuz exerts his eloquence to prove to the jury what a
wicked man Mr. Pickwick is, we
only smile; but then we know Buzfuz and his trade, while thoBe who
may read the newspaper report in
some distant place do not. That
is the danger which attends the
far llights of the press.
The only amendment made affecting the principle of the act was
one (section 21) which allowed the
conciliation board to be passed by
should either of the parties to a
dispute require that the caBe
should be taken to the court of arbitration. Thua, after yearB of
trial, the voluntary principle (conciliation) is practically rejected,
aud "compulsory arbitration"
emerges triumphant.
From the American point of
view the act will scarcely be considered dead on this account. The
reasons urged for the change were
mostly in the direction of charging
the conciliation boards with waste
of time. They had no binding
power, and yet it was necessary to
proceed with a case before the
hoard, because until the effort to
"conciliate" had failed, tho compulsory powers of the higher court
were not to be brought into play.
Some disputants, however, expressed their intentions freely before the boards to the effect that
whatever might be the board's recommendations the case would be
carried on to the court of arbitration, on purpose that the award
should bo binding with all the force
of law over the whole industrial
district. So, time was waBted in
the examination of witnesses, etc,
before a board which was plainly
told beforehand that its services
were useless and its recominenda
lions valueless.
Thero were other charges against
the boards, many of them inspired
by dislike of their personnel, but
the boards still exist here. In the
"compulsory arbitration" act just
passed by New South Wales there
is no conciliation mentioned
tioned, but clients go straight to
the "mailed fist" for judgment.
I send you herewith the consolidating act (viz: "The Industrial
Conciliation act, 1900") with its
amending act of 1901. I also enclose a copy of the monthly journal
of tlie department of labor for November and December, 1901, and
January and February, 1902. I
will leave you to form an opinion
from these documents whether any
vital alteration in the law was
made last year, or whether there
appears any weakness in regard to
awards made by the court of arbitration, etc.
Yours faithfully,
Edw.Tueqeak,
Secretary for Labor

MONTANA   GOLD   'MINING   CO.
Mill   Will   Bs Constructed ton   Daer
Park. Arrow Lake.
The Montana Gold Mining company whose main office is in Spokane, have engaged Mr. A. G.
King to design and superintend
the construction of a 50 ton mill
for their mine near Deer Park, on
Lower Arrow lake. Mr. King is
a mill man of a well established
reputation, who is now employed
at the St. Eugene mine, the mill of
which he designed and built.
The company has six claims, five
of which are crown granted. TheBe
claims have been steadily developed for several years past and a
large quantity of ore is blocked
out. On the 100 foot level a 200
foot drift has been run all in ore,
the width of the ore at that point
being nine feet, while careful average samples across the vein from
wall to wall show the crude ore to
have a value between $14 and $16.
This will be concentrated three
tons into one. All reports confirm
the belief that the company has
a property of exceptional value.—
Spokane Mining.

Applause.
the most accomplished  skaters of
the west.
The game was very fast the ice
being in excellent condition. The
Montreal goal was jealously guarded by J. S. C. Fraser whose eagle
eye was ever on the puck when it
was in the vicinity of hiB territory
and he saved many a goal by his
ability and alertness. At half time
the game Btood Montreal 4 goals
opponents 2. Upon play being
resumed the respective teams did
their utmost to gain an advantage
and some very pretty and smart
hockey was witnessed, the judge
throughout gliding about and
kept a keen eye on the play. John
M. Smith's team worked like tro-
jansand notwithstanding the almost
superhuman efforts put forth by
the opponents the combined bankers managed to pcore two more
goals, thus making the game even,
four goals each. At the call of time
neither side had increased their
record and the game continued
for another fifteen minutes and as
then neither side had scored play
went on until a deciding goal was
won.
At this time the excitement was
intense, the cheere of the spectators being heard for a considerable
distance from the scene of action.
Time after time attacks were made
upon the respective strongholds
and cleverly repulsed by the goal
keepers and it is hard to imagine a
more closely contested game. Final
ly after some little time a goal was
placed to the credit of the Montrealers. The play of all was excellent but the special attention
of the excited assemblage was frequently drawn to the agility displayed by John M. Smith whose
youthful demeanor apparently
won the admiration of all the ladies present. Messrs, Mackenzie,
Barker, Leyton (goalkeeper) and
Carmichael played a strong game
for the combined banks, whilst
Messrs. Brown, Walker and Phipps
did yeoman service for Mr. FraBer's
team.

On Wednesday   evening one of
most interesting game of hockey
of   the present season  was played
between the bank of Montreal, cap
tained by Manager Fraser and  the
other banks of the Golden city un
der   the   captaincy   of    Manager
Smith.   The aggregate of the capi
tal represented was over $21,000,'
000.   Seldom   in   the  history  of
British Columbia have contesting
teams been backed up by so much
money.
The referee was Judge Nelson,
who at 10.35 precisely stepped onto
the ice accompanied by his faithful canine companion "Prinoe"
which was tbe signal for vociferous
cheers from the assembled multitude, and waving of handkerchiefs
from a large number of the fair
sex in the gallery.
Afler a few turns round the rink
at a rapid pace the judge entertained the onlookers with some
fancy skating, thus sustaining his
reputation of past years as one of

The Dominion trades and labor
men had their annual talk with
members of the government on
Monday last on subjecta in which
they are interested. The delegation assembled in the Premier's
office. Messrs. Ralph Smith and
Puttee along with Messrs. Mulock
and Mackenzie King, headed the
delegation. They were received by
Sir Wilfrid Laurier.
Ralph Smith was the first speaker.
He said that the delegation was
one of the largest of the kind that
ever interviewed the Dominion
government, representing as it did,
every province in the Dominion.
That ought to be taken by the. government as ajproof the earnestness
of the labor workers in the cause
in which they were engaged.
Having said this, Mr. Smith
presented the first resolution,
which was asking for $500 of a
head tax on Chinese. He hoped
it would be the last time that they
would have to ask this. He said
this because the report of the royal
commission on the Chinese had
not only recommended an increase
of $500, but had declared in favor
of exclusion.
Mr. Puttee spoke in favor of government ownership o f public util
ities. He said that the labor party
were in favor of public owner
ship.
Other speakers followed.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier, his reply,
took up the different points pre-
sented to him. ln regard to an
eight hour day on government
works the premier said if such was
given on other works in the coun
try he did not see any reason why
it should not be given on govern
ment railways.
In respect of immigration it was
the desire of the Dominion govern
ment that none but agricultural
laborers should come here from
England, and therefore he would
lay the manner before the Minister
of the Interior.
The proposition as to deporta
tion in regard to the alien labor
act was somewhat startling at
first look, since it meant to take
away the personal liberty of the
party without being heard. However, he would have it   considered.
As for public ownership in
general it waB a large question,
and all that he could say was that
it would be considered.
Then as to Chinese legislation.
Before anything was done it would
be necessary that the report of the
commissioners on this subject
should be made known in Eastern
Canada, where the subject was not
known sufficiently.
Mr. Mulock, who followed,
promised a bill dealing with letter
carries' salaries thiB session. The
conciliation amendments proposed
were apparently an improvement
to the bill, and would have the
hearty support of the government.
He also said that the union labor Bill had been thrown out twice
by the senate.
