Sensational News Arrives
From Alaska.
REMOVES RUSSIAN MONUMENT
Alleged  Action Taken   Lately by
a   Canadian   Survey
Official.
TRIED TO BITE  OFF   HIS NOSE
Peculiar  Assault    Charged    Against
one James Gillis.
HE ACTED
FOR BOTH
Buffalo, N. Y., April 3.—The Express today prints the following
under Washington date: "The
Alaska boundary controversy has
assumed a new phase which may
develop into a much more serious
state of affairs between Great Britain- and the United States over
this important and troublesome
matter, so long a cause of international friction.
Reports have reached the state
department that a monument built
by Russia to mark the boundary
between Alaska, whioh until 1876
was a Russian possession, and the
adjacent British territory, has been
arbitrarily removed by a Canadian
official surveying expedition and in
view of that, Secretary Hay, by
direction of the president, has
ordered a personal investigation to
be made by a commission of American officers to ascertain the trutli
of the sensational information.
James Gillis was arreBted today
by Chief Ingram on a charge of
brutal assault laid against him
last fall by Contractor Powers, of
McGuigan. Powers' story is that
Gillis was employed by him on a
packing outfit near Three Forks,
that he had some dispute with
Gillis, and the next day Gillis,
who is a powerful man, laid wait
for him and nearly succ3eded in
biting off his nose.
Gillis escaped over the moun •
tains to Republic and came into
Rossland last night, thinking all
danger was over, but the chief recognized him and promptly arrested
him. Provincial constable Young
of Nelson, will be here tonight to
take him away for trial.

Butte, April 3.—The striking
hoisting engineers of the Amalgamated Copper company's properties and the Engineer's union held
an exciting session last night. The
action of the hoisting engineers in
walking out and violating the
agreementmade with the company
a year ago, maintaining the present wage scale for two years, it is
alleged, was denounced by the union. Th,e strikers, upon the decision of the union being given are
said to bave bolted the meeting
and after an hour's secret session
prepared a statement for the public, giving their side of the controversy. The hoisting engineers,
they allege were not a party of the
so-called agreement, and that further, with the exception of the
Amalgamated company,the mining
companies are paying a higher
scale of wages.

Victoria, April 3—(Special)—In
the proceedings before J udge Walkem in re the accusation brought
by Smith Curtis, M. L, A., against
Premier Dunsmuir, the newspaper
reporters Btated the ministry
declared tbat Greenshields
was acting as the accredited agent
of the government in the deal with
the Canadian Northern. At the
same time it is clear that he was
acting aB the representative of Mackenzie & Mann, the promoters of
the same railway, thus acting in a
dual capacity.
The feeling seems to be setting
strongly against James Dunsmuir
and itis only the more pronouncad
since North Victoria has not
any representation in the house
during the passage of the redistribution bill. There exists a feeling
also that there will be some unex-
revelations of policy with regard
to the bill.

Three Noble Cutthroats and Robber*
Have Been Executed.
London, April 3.—In a dispatch
from St. Petersburg, the correspondent there of the Daily Mail
says that news has been received
from Kutais, Trans-Caucasia, that
three Russian nobles, Prince Kio-
nauz, Prince Valerian and Prinoe
Culukidz were executed March 3
for the murder of over 100 persons.
The trials of the princes lasted for
two weeks. Tbey were the leaderB
of a wide spread bandit organization which had terrorized the Caucasus by systematic robbery, arson
and murder.

Pretoria, April 2.—Communications havepaBBed between ex-President Steyn and the the Transvaal mission at Kronstadt, but
nothing is yet known of the result.
The majority of the military men
and civilians here expect more
from the continual pressure of the
troops than from the present negotiations. It is pointed out that
once before when hard pressed the
Transvaalers showed a desire for
peace, but, this was promptly overridden by ex-President Steyn
Nothing in the present situation
so far as known, indicates that ex-
President Steyn is less irreconcilia-
ble than previously, indeed the
known facts seem to point to a
greater determination to continue
the struggle.

LABOR LEGISLATION.
New Zealand has become famous during the paBt six years because of her radical labor legislation.
New Zealand has been cursed
with landlordism, trampism, mil-
lionairism, but she lias been wise
enough, in the past seven years, to
legislate them out of existence.
Six or seven years ago tramps
were as numerous as they are in
the United States. Today they
are very scarce, the few are those
who prefer to be tramps,and when
they die the tramp will be no more
in that nation. Time waB when
a few great landlords owned the
greater part of the land. A land
tax graduated from two to six per
cent on £1, with an extra
two cents for absentee landlords,
proved to be bo heavy that most of
the great estates were offered for
sale. The government had also
enacted a graduated income tax.
These two measures resulted in
driving the great money lords from
the nation. There is not today one
millionaire and only one man
worth half a million in New Zealand.
The land is held by actual settlers who are permitted to hold
land to the value of $2500 exempt
from taxation. Besides the government loans to the settlers $100
in cash, allows him a certain sum
per acre for clearing land; it will
also provide him with three days
work per week of 8 hours per day,
in building roads or other public
improvements. This enables the
settler to support his wife and family until he can raise carps. The
government is reimbursed for all
this in the increased value due to
an increase of population, resulting in the larger use of the government railroads, telegraph, telephones, postal system, etc.—Ex.
OUR POSSIBILITIES.
Some exception haB been taken
to what is styled "that very optimistic article" on the mineB in yesterday's paper. Now the World
has nothing to take back in thin
regard. It was not in tbe slightest
degroe optimistic, and it did know
of that which it was talking about.
It reiterates that if this city had to
depend upon the "high grade" ore
it would remain a small camp, ay,
a smaller camp than it is today, to
the end of its existence, which by
the way, would not lie equal to that
of Methusalah! Hut when it gets
down to appreciate, and it is thankfully recognized, that ninny of its
chief citizens are so recognizing it,
that it is a low gruile camp, and
try to further its interests along
these lines it will make the strides
which, in the opinion of several
who are qualified to speak authoritatively, are possible to Rossland.
Now one of these things is cheap
smelting. It was shown by the Le
Roi that the cost of smelting was
$4.25 per ton, and that when $11
per ton was paid for coke. Now 25
tons of coke are used to 100 tons of
ore. That is to say that one ton of
ore takeB $2.75 worth of coke to
smelt it. If the price of coke wer.
reduced to $3.50 per ton delivered,
which is considered by experts as
not an unreasonable reduction, the
cost of the coke per ton of ore would
be no more than 82 cents, and the
rate of smelting would bo almost
cut in two, dropping from $-1.25 to
$2.32. Improvements in machinery would permit of a lower
percentage of coke being used.
.Large reductions could  be made in
the cost of transportation of the ore
to the smelter, and the reduction
of the grade of ore to be shipped
would cut out the cost of ore sorting. Proper pressure brought to
bear upon the government would
cut out the extortionate tax upon
low grade shipping -nines. Now it
is not unreasonable to suppose that
these reductions, even leaving out
others in the method of reducing
the ore, which will as inevitably
follow with Rossland rock as it has
done with other classes of ore, will
a mon nt in the aggregate to 75
cents. In other words, the way
can be pointed out whereby tlie
cost of reducing and mining ore
can be brought down $3. Now the
present cost for Le Roi ore is $9,
which means that $6 ore can be
made to pay in this camp.
What is therefore the duty of
Rossland? Ib it not to enquire
whether these things are as stated,
and if it is found that the statements of the World are substantially accurate, is it not the d .ty cf
this city lo do its best to work
along such lines as will bring
about such reductiont? d is not
up to the Board of Trade, and the
Trades Council, to every public
body within the city to make such
representations, to exert such in-
lluence and to make that roar which
will gain these ends to thecity.
The mineB around here are not
confined to those on Red Mountain, there are others, and there
are many others. Along the eastern slope of Columbia mountain
are situated the properties of the
Big Three chock full of $6 rock.
Lower down the Commander and
others would be highly interested
to know of such a proposition.
Across the valley there are a number of properties on which much
money was spent in the early days
which would become shippers.
Round the old crater to Deer Park
mountain would find a host of
claims which would experience a
joyful boom and on Red mountain
itself thousands of tons of ore,
blocked out in many cases, now untouched, and hardly looked v>pon
as a reserve, would be soon broken
into and hoisted to the surface.
This place could be thus made a
veritable hive of industry no whit
inferior to Johannesburg in wealth,
importance or population. But itB
citizens have got to quit quarreling
with labor and get in and rustle.
Otherwise it will bo up to tne next
generation to do what could be
done now inside the next few yearB.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
A Boston paper is talking about
the decadence of Great Britain and
the inevitable future superiority of
Russia and the United States. The
wish is the father of the thought.
Russia is riddled with revolution,
the States are being suffocated with
strikes, whereas the only trouble
with Great Britain is that she is
bothered by pro-Boers. A little
foresight will show which is likely
to come out on top.
The Liquor Traffic.
The sale of malt and spirituous
liquors in New Zealand is a matter
of local option. The law, however,
permits no saloon, but innkeepers
may Bell under licenBe. If a man
is once Been coming from one of
these inns in a state of intoxication, the proprietor is arrested and
fined; and for a second offence he
forfeits his license forever. There
iB scarcely any drunkenness in
New Zealand.
Wanted—To buy second-hand
furniture and clothes, or anything
of value. Layton's Second-hand
Store. tf
''Staggering humanity" is a
favorite phase today with the pro-
Boer, especially the American
sympathizer. Now the total bill of
mortality in South Africa war is not
more than 30,000 dead, but in the
great civil war a million lives are
suid to bave been sacrificed,but humanity went on unstaggered. It
cosl more than that to down Napoleon, hut Europe rather enjoyed
it.
The Canadian Pacific railway
declares a dividend of 13 per cent.
Its agreement with the government
says that no interference [shall be
made with its rates until it haB
earned 10 per cent in profits. To
settle the matter the astute- railway getB permission to increase its
capitalization by $20,000,000, but
nobody at Ottawa thought it worth
while to say a thing about cutting
the rates.

Developments   Along the
Whole Line.
FRENCH COMPANY AT FRANK
Five New Seams of Valuable  Coal
Have Been Lately Discovered.
Rowland Machin, the Canada
agent of the Bennett Fuse company, of Cambourne, Cornwall, has
just returned from an extended
tour of the Kootenays, and as far
east as Frank, Alberta. In an interview with a Vietoria Times representative he said ho had a very
hopeful feeling and abundant evidence of tremendous development
in tbe near future—in fact in progress—throughout the coal field
belt.
The Crows Nest Coal company,
he says, are producing on an average 500 tons of coke from 500 coke
ovens, 350 at Fernie and 150 at
Michel. The development that has
been made at Frank by the Frank
Coal company, which has a contract with the C. P. R. for thoir
entire output for the next five
years shows wonderful seams of
coal. This company, Mr. Machin
points out, has erected a number
of up-to-date modern cottages for
employes, and in this connection
it is understood the Fernie Coal
company has recently awarded
contracts for the erection of 150
similar cottugeB for its employes.
The French coal mining syndicate operating five miles from
Frank has already uncovered five
scams of the very finest coking
coal. The managing director, Mr.
Fleutot, has just returned from
Paris. Mr. Green, tho consulting
engineer, reports to a correspondent that the contract has been
awarded by the C.P.R. for a branch
railway to their property which
will give them Imiuediato oo?»u» tn
lhe main line, and ?ince there is a
fairly steep grade the only thing
the locomotive will have to do is to
haul up the empty cars. Thc distance is a little over live miles. It
is eaBy of access, Mr. Machin says,
by wagon road at present.
WAITED NINETEEN YEARS.
Bobs Bahudur Did   Not   Like   Being
Fooled.
In the fourth and final volume
of Mr. M'Laren Cobban's "Life and
Deeds of Earl Roberts," says a contemporary, which is to be issued in
a few days, will be found, among
other good things, an original document as interesting aB it is
brief.
This is the letter in which the
commander-in-chief in Ireland
readily acceded to the request of
Lord Lansdowne, minister of war,
that he should at once proceed to
South Africa, after the black Colen-
so Stormberg-Magersfontein week,
and restore the prestige of our
arms.
"For nineteen years," wrote
Lord Roberts, "I have led
an abstemious life in the hope of
this day." The nineteen years in
question, of course, dated from Mtt-
juba, when "Bobs" was dispatched
to South Africa, only to find on
reaching Capetown that he had
been sent on what he himBelf called a "wild gooBe chase," when he
felt inclined to break his sword
across hiB knee.
From that time forth he waited
and longed for his opportunity,
which Lord Lansdowne at last
presented to him. How he profited thereby we all know.—Military
Mail.

MINING
PABULUM
With What Stuff the Coast
is Regaled as to Rossland Ores.
Reports of the proceedings of indignation meetings and at subsequent conferences, held with Mr.
R. D. Fetherstonhaugh, manager
of the Atlin Mining company,
which engaged Japanese miners
for its varfous operations, show
that at first the mine manager
asked the protestants against Japanese mine labor, to raise $1120 to
indemnify his company in the
matter of expenses incurred in
bringing in the men, and to pay
the return fares of the Japanese.
A subscription list was opened,
and about $100 subscribed, but
there was soon found to be no
prospect of raising the $1120 by
subscription. The Japanese mine
workers were nevertheless induced
to leave and the money raised for
compensating the mining company
in the matter was returned to the
subscribers.
We make a speciality of family trade
at the International Liquor Store.

"The Josie mine under the able
management of Bernard Macdonald and William Thompson, has
encountered a body of ore showing
values of $1 per ton in gold(!) This
ledge, which is continuous, is at
least three feet (!) in width and is
solid ore. Mr. Machin brought
down a splendid specimen of this
ore taken from the working stopes
and pointing out that considering
the present depressed condition of
mining in British Columbia from
a British standpoint, this recent
development of the Rossland camp
must certainly inspire every confidence in the RoBsland district "

Blooming in the dells.

The   Mine    Has    started  Shipments
Once More.
Superintendent Yates of the
Cascade mine was in town during
the earlier part of the week and
left for the mine yesterday. He
brought in with him some very
fine looking specimens of rock
which went considerably over the
shipping average of themine which
has been about $10 heretofore, with
little or no sorting. Shipping will
be started immediately. Behind
the sleigh will be drawn a rawhide and it is thought that this
will tend to keep the road packed
and thus opened for the next couple of weeks. As the mine is at an
elevation of some 7000 feet there
should be no trouble in doing thia.
The ore will still be shipped to the
Granby smelter.

Result of the Vote in Manitoba.
PROHIBITION   IS   A  FAILURE
Winnipeg  Has a   Large  Majority
in   Favor of Selling
Liquor.
Winnipeg, April 3.—The test of
the Manitoba Liquor Act by the
referendum was held yesterday
with the result that the measure
failed to meet with the approval of
the electors at the polls. The returns available last night showed
that a total of 27,121 votes had
been polled, and of these 16,000
were against bringing the act into
force, and 10,621 were in favor.
There waB, therefore, the negative
majority of 5979.
The total vote cast in Winnipeg
was 8384, of which 2450 were in
favor of the Liquor Act, and 5934
against, making the majority in
the city against the act 3484.
A great many country polls
still remain to be heard from,
however, and although these may
be cut down the adverse majority to
some extent, they will not affect
the main result.
