SHIPPING TRUST
British Shipowners are up
in Arms.
GIGANTIC SCHEME IS PROPOSED
Embraces  the Indian  as Well as
the Atlantic and Pacific
Oceans.
London, May 30.—The daily
papers are full of a scheme to
counteract the Morgan shipping
combine and are of the opinion that
it is extremely likely to succeed.
It is asserted that the negotiations
between the British and the Canadian governments in this regard are
far advanced with reference to the
establishment of a transatlantic
Bervice. Sir Christopher Furnees
is the head, it is asserted, of the
great .shipping combine, which, if
all tbe reports are true, will completely dwarf   the Morgan scheme.
The Cunard line, one of the oldest and the beBt on the Atlantic, is
stated to form a part of this new
plan. Furness' scheme is said
to be to establish a fleet of steamers
in conjunction with the Great
Western railway and the C. P. R.
which will run between Milford
Haven and Canada. These boats
are to have an average speed of 25
knots and to be magnificently
equipped.
Mii.Vti T,laveu is splendidly situated for thiB trade, and ships making this their port of clearance will
eseape the difficult navigation of
the narrow seas.
The Cunard line, however, favor
a line from Liverpool to Canada.
In conjunction with this scheme
it is proposed to have a triweekly
service between Australia and Vancouver sailing via Hongkong, and
another service between some eastern Canadian port and Australia
via the Cape. The trade between
Australia and England, via the
Suez canal and India, is already
thoroughly covered by some of the
most magnificent and largest fleets
of the British mercantile marine,
notably the P. & 0., the British
India and the Blue Funnel line of
Alfred Holt. Lamport and Holt
own another splendid fleet trading
principally to South American
points.
None of the fleets here mentioned
have been approached by the"
Margan combine, and any real apprehension is scouted by shipping
journals which state that the British mercantile marine, even without government interference, is
more than able to hold its own.
Canadian shipping circles are, it
is stated, in favor of no rebate on
British goods which come into
Canada otherwise than through a
Canadian port.

CEREMONIES
Number of Persons From

Be Present.
which cannot be witnessed by more
than 6000 persons.
Apart from the special and regular Ambassadors and tbeir wives,
it is not probable that more than
half a dozen United States citizens
will be among the privileged spectators. These will be officials of
the special or regular Embassies,
and there is no foundation for the
foolish talk about Yankee millionaires buying their way to the best
Beats.
There have also been exaggerated
reports of the number of London
houses taken by Americans for the
coronation season.
Mr. and Mrs. Bradley Martin
have a house in Chesterfield Gardens, as usual, and Mrs. Montgomery
Sears another in Sloane Gardens.
Mr. Pierpont Morgan haB a permanent London residence in
Prince's Gate and another in the
country. These are the most prominent foreigners now in London for
the coronatw season with houses
of their own, permanent American
residents and horse-owners being
excluded.
STANDS STRONG
Financial Position of Great
Britain.
COST OF SOUTH AFRICAN WAR
Has Cheaper Money   at  a Lesser
Rate Than Any Other '
Country.
London, June 9.—Prior to the
reading of the loan bill in the
House of Lords today, Lord Gos-
chen, liberal, and a former chancellor of the exchequer, announced
that he desired to Bay a few words
on the financial position of the
country.
Consols, which were now paying
only M\ per cent, stood at 97. Before the conversion of 1888, 3 per
cent, consols stood at 101. If they
had been converted then they would
have been worth oi '.y 82, so that
the stock was really 15 points
higher.
After a costly war and the borrowing cf £159,000,000, ($95,000,-
000), the country might well congratulate itself on a fact [which
showed such economic stamina.  >
The premier, Lord Salisbury,said
such words coming from such a
high authority were gratifying and
would be widely read.

Greenwood, B. C. June 6.—A
regrettable accident occurred at the
Mother Lode mine this morning in
which one man lost his life and
two others were seriously injured.
The name of the miner killed was
Richard Babb, a very well known
man in thiB camp. Edward Savage had his leg fractured and Herbert Redpath escaped with some
severe flesh wounds.
It would seem that the men in
question had just sprung a hole
i. e., they had exploded a light
charge of powder at the bottom
so as to make a chamber for the
reception of a heavy blasting charge.
After springing the hole the miners returned and began placing the
sticks of dynamite within the
chamber thus prepared. It is sup
posed that the hole had not sufficiently cooled and in consequence
the heavy charge exploded with
the fatal results   already  detailed.
G0RONATI0N DAY
What is Being   Done its
Honor.
SUB-COMMITTEES   APPOINTED
General Committee Want to Raise
a Sum of Over
$1200-
The general meeting of the committee on the celebration for coronation day was held in the library on Saturday evening and
some good hard talking was done.
The matter may now be said to be
thoroughly threshed out and a definite scheme will be laid before the
joint committees, the general and
finance. The proposition is to raise
$1500 which amounts in consideration of the fact that Grand |Forks
is contributing upwards of $4000
in money and prizes to its Dominion day celebration, a matter of
$2 per head for every man, woman
and child in that enterprising, go •
ahead town, should not be difficult
for RosBland to contribute. If the
thing is worth doing it is worth
doing properly.
A general meeting of representative citizens has decided that
this should be a celebration and
it merely remains for the public to
wee that it should be done and well.
Every person in the city, however,
will have to help.
The programme will follow the
lines already outlined in these
columns. The band competition
will have to be given up unleae a
larger amount of money is raised
than is at present in sight. The
other features stand and there is
little doubt that still others will be
added to the number before Coronation day comes around.
The committee has appointed
quite a number of subcommittees
to deal with matters of detail and
from the composition of theBe if it
easy to see that much good work
will be accomplished,

London, June 8.--Many erroneous
statements have been current respect
ing the number of the citizens of the
United States who have been invited to the coronation function in
the Abbey. Court officials have
emphasized the fact from the outset that only those having official
relations with the government can
expect to attend the ceremonial,

THOSE NEGOTIATIONS.
The attention of the readers of
the Woiti.n is drawn to a letter
from John Mackenzie,general man
ager of the Le Roi Mining com
party, published in another column. The World is insistent
upon the news as published by it
on Thursday last as being essen
tially true. It will be noticed that
the denial of Mr. Mackenzie uses
the words, "has not been." A ref
erence to our issue of Thursday
last will show that the Would
Btated that the arrangements
would go into effect on the completion of the Great Northern
branch into the Crow's Next country. This will be during the
month of July. As regards the
statement as to the transportation
of matte to theeast Mr. Mackenzie's
statement is in perfect accord with
the article in the Would. Our in
formation waB gained from trustworthy source', although not ema
nating from the mines, and the
future ratification of the negotiations, still pending inasmuch as
they have . not been consumated,
will show the substantial accuracy
of the World's statements, which
indeed, merely assert certain facts
which are known to most informed
persons. Negotiations are indeed
delicate matters but where their
geoeral purport is known to so
many, very little, if any, harm can be
done, in our estimation, by making
it public.
TAFF VALE CASE.
By a majority of 29 the Trades
Union Bill fathered by the eminent
Liberal statesman, Sir Charles
Dilke, was thrown out on May 14
in the British house of commons.
The reason assigned by the opponents of the bill was tbat a measure was in contemplation by the
government whicb would deal with
the matter on the Hues of recognizing the decision but going a
Btep further, and bo introducing
compensating clauses that there
would be no practical injustice
done to the laboring interests as
typified in the trades unions.
Whether this bill will be introduced or not during the present session, which has still a li'e of some
two months before it, is somewhat
doubtful, but the manner in which
a government majority of 130 has
been reduced to one-fifth of that
number will tend towards forcing
the hand of the government in this
regard and a bill will either have
to be introduced or Dilke's bill will
assuredly become law next February.
The regrettable part of the matter is that Smith Curtis will now
have to encounter a more determined opposition than ever, and it is
only the course of time which will
show him to have been right in his
present action. This is the more
regrettable inasmuch ae it is more
than likely that if Smith Curtis had
not connected his name with this,
in our estimation, laudable piece of
proposed legislation, that hiB chances for the premiership of thie
province would have been greater
today than they are. Indeed if it
were not for the fact that Mr. Curtis
is looked upon in certain quarters as
a dangerous man because of his
very sincerity the present government would have been forced to appeal to the country long ago.
But the people have yet to pass
judgment in the premises and it is
more than  probable   that   Curtis
will lose nothing by the determined
jgmdconscientouii stand he has taken-
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The Miner filled its Sunday
morning issue with a rechauffe of
what the Would has been saying
lor the past six months. It says
there iB no truth in the transportation arrangements. Well, the paper in question should know, but
it does not as a matter of fact.
About six weeks hence it will be
hunting np the back files of last
week's Would and present another
rechauffe to its circle of readers as
Bometliing that it has just discovered and will claim merit in consequence.
"Chicago has shown its ability
to run a municipal lighting as well
as a municipal water plant. Municipal ownership is making rapid
Btrikes in England. In 1875 the
capital invested in municipal undertakings in Great Britain was
under $46,000,000 and in 1900 it
was $1,500,000,000. There are
now in Great Britain 931 munici
palities owning waterworks, 99
owniDg the street railway, 249
owning the gas works and 181 sup
plying eleetricity. Most of these
are in England.—Grand Forks
Gazette. And Manchester (Eng.)
owns a coal mine for its gas  works.
One of the best articles that has
yet been written on the smelting
problem in this province and how
it is heing aggravated by the transportation companies is reproduced
in another column. Attention is
particularly drawr to the iniquitous profitB being made by the
Crows Nest Coal company.to which
attention has been repeatedly
drawn in these oolumns. There iB
a general conspiracy of silence with
regard to this matter in the daily
press of the province. This means
that the papers are either in the
pay of the transportation companies or of the coal outfit and so
are afraid to call their souls their
own.

GOPPERWILLRISE
Consumption 10 Per Cent
Over Production.
JULY WILL SEE AN ADVANCE
Reasons  Advanced  by  an   Astute
Financier  and   Mine
Manager.
"I am not uneasy over the outlook for copper, said J. P. Graves,
of the Granby mines, lately to a
Republic reporter. The surpluB
stock has been almost completely
consumed, and the users of the
brown mi til have been living almost on a hand to mouth basis.
The present low price of copper,
ranging between 12 and 124 cents
per pound, is conceded to be manipulative, and under normal conditions it will soon right itself. I
think that the price will be steady
somewhat between 14 ar.d 16 cents,
and I look for a recovery in value
in July. Whether or not the warring copper interests get together,
the price of copper is sure to advance in response to the numerous
demand for it, and we are already
witnessing signs of that advance.
"Every business building, every
manufactory, every ship, particularly every dwelling now uses
copper in greater of less quantities
for electric wiring. The use of
copper in the electrical art is extended to Europe, which, aside
from Germany, made little progress
until lately in electricity.
"The consumption in the past
year has been something like 10
per cent more than the production
The enormous drain on the surplus
stocks has wiped them away, and
higher prices for copper are almost
inevitable."

ITS DOINGS DRAGGED TO LIGHT
Shown Up in the London   Mining
Press—Smelting Problem,
R. G. C. Ji hnson of Nelson in a
letter to the London Mining Journal sayB in part.:
When British Columbia's mines,
more especially in the KootenayB,
began to be developed from 1890
to the present time the problem
has always been how to treat the
ores within the province. Custom
smelter for copper ores were built
at Nelson, Trail, Texada Island,
Grand Forks, Greenwood, Midway,
and now two on Vancouver Island.
For lead ores custom smeltersarose
at Vancouver, Golden, Revelstoke,
Pilot Bay, Nelson, Trail, and now
at Marysville. Being custom
smelters in most cases, the owners
allowed the transportation companies to intervene between the
mines and the sellers, giving these
railway corporations an opportunity to make high charges for
freight on ores, which they were
not slow to take advantage of.
These rates counterbalanced all
chances from the richness and
abundance of the ores, and the
possibilities from cheap fuel of low
smelting charges of competing
against ores in less favored localities. In the United States they
have smelting trusts; in British
Columbia a new incubus has arisen. The railway corporations own
a smelter each, own coal mines—
the source of cheap fuel—and
make large profits on freight rates
on oreB. They cheapen smelting
chargeB sufficiently to discourage I
all custom smelters, not belonging
to themselves, making their own
profit on freight rates. The mine
owner on his ore is quoted a complete rate and treatment, no division for each department being given out.
The problem now arises how to
circumvent the railways and take
advantage of the abundance of ore
and cheap fuel to euable British
Columbia to compete in the world's
metal market. Apparently the only
chance is for each mine or group of
mines to smelt their own ore at or
near the mine itself, eliminating
thc tax for transport of ore to
Bmelter, then keeping the profit of
smelting and refining in their own
pocket, and finally appeal to the
Dominion government to establish
equitable rates for the finished
article to market.
Take fuel from the Crow's NeBt
collieries, where they pay the colliers from fifty-five to sixty cents
per ton loaded on trams. Let us
then add 10 cents per ton for hauling from the colliery adits and for
automatically landing on railway
trucks or into the coke ovens as a
get .-huh cob t, so making the total cost of coal loading amont to
75 cent per ton, or $1 liO for coke.
The coal is sold for $2, the coke
for $4 at the colliery, but competition will lower this soon.
Now the government who granted bonuses to theBe railways, can
be appealed to insist on fair rates
to the different smelters. Compared with other countries this is
cheap fuel and of the very best.
In the copper mines, by employing the partial pyritic smelting
process by previous mechanical
concentration with the Klmore oil
process; by dispensing with all
heap roasting and calcining, by
using the sulphur in the ore with
hot blast to reduce the consumption of coke to 5 per cent; then
British Columbia's copper will
hold its own, having ample electrical facilities locally for refining.
By owning their own smelters
aad refineries, making the size of
their plant correspond with the
size of their output—from 20 to
500 tons daily—British Columbia'*
lead can compete in the world'B
market, and even make it uncomfortable for Australia, Mexico and
other mining centres. Allowing
for mining, deadwood, concentration, smelting and refining, a ton
of lead can be produced and desilverized in British Columbia for $35
at present, and later for $30 at the
works. The lower grade ores of
EaBt Kootenay and EaBt Lardeau
will give 50 ounces of silver per
ton of lead produced as a bonus.
The richer ores of Slocan and
West Lardeau will give 100 ounces.
It will be to British Columbia's
advantage that lead should remain
low in price, at say $55 per ton,
so shutting down many mineB
throughout the world and preventing a glut of the commodity. This
may not be nice reading for other
other countries' but it is what will
occur in these days of competition.
To get British Columbian lead from
the works to the world's market
there iB the difference in price between $30 and the selling value,
with also the silver mentioned to
defray expenses.
How much this difference the
transportatin companies are to have
and how much the shareholders,
an appeal to   Ottawa   will   settle.
That British Columbia has immense unlimited supplies of lead
and copper able to supply a large
quota of the world's requirements
are established facts.

We understand, says the London j
B. C. Review, that a meeting o! the
shareholders of the Le Roi has
been called for the 30th inst. An
effort is being made in certain
quarters to discredit the present
board and mine management with
the object apparently of inducing
the shareholders at the forthcoming
meeting to support a suggestion
that the management should again
revert to the old regime.
A great deal of ignorance is
evinced by certain financial contemporaries who, having advised
their readers to purchase shares in
this mine, and their advice having
proved misleading, are endeavoring
to save their face by abusing the
present management.
The plain facts of the matter are,
that before the present management took over the property, the
books were so kept, and the smelter
was so run, that it was impossible
to find out at once the absolutely
unsatisfactory position of affairs.
The smelter looses havo now come
to light, and it is necessary to take
immediate steps in order to prevent
further heavy losseB.
In our opinion the blame is entirely due to those whom \vr indicated in our article lust week.
The position is by no mentis
hopeless, although thc outlook for
dividends is fir from encouraging,
and shareholders would do well lo
pay no attention to the vapourings
of theBe'discredited mining tipsters, but should .consider any proposal which may be made by the
board entirely on its merits as a
business proposition.

FIGURES TALK.
The fi th annual meeting of the "shareholders
of the Crow's Nest Pass Coal company was held
in Toronto on March 7th.
Ths net profits of the year after paying all
operating expensps 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.
This company's assets are their coal mines
and the townsi e of Fernie. Four years ago thia
company had no transportation facilities, and their
stock sold as low as eleven cents per share. Today their stock is selling at $90.
The Similkameen Valley Coal company, limited, assets are coal mines, timber, water power,
agricultural and horticultural land, city water
wnrks, electric light plant and the townsite of
Ashnola, surrounded by the following resources:
gold, copper, silver, lead, iron, lime, fire clay,
platinum, and a fine stockraisinu country, and it
is the smelting center of the Similkameen valley, with a climate that is all that could be RBked,
You can secure an option on this company's stock
by paying 10c per share down, and t*n cents pcr
month until fully paid, will non-lorfeiture clause.
This price is subject to twenty-five cents advance
without notice as soon as transporlation 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
88,990. Crow's nest shares as an example. This
would be a fair profit on an investment of ten
dollars per month for eleven months. Wc invite
the fullest inspection of the company's affairs by
intending purchasers. For further information

Dear Sir:—My attention has just
been directed to an item which appeared in your iseue of the 5th instant, under the caption: "Deal is
closed; favorable conditions for the
mines; railway concedes all, etc."
As the statements therein mad. are
entirely misleading I deem it but
fair that you should publish tbis
categerical denial of their accuracy:
The price of coke to be delivered
at Northport smelter has not been
"put down to $6 per ton."
The rate for the haulage of the
ore from the mine to Northport has
not been reduced to twenty five
cents per ton.
The switching charge levied at
Northport on lime cars has not
been "done away with," or reduced.
The shipping rate for matte has
not been reduced, and there is, apparently, no prospect of a reduction
being made in the immediate future.
Yours truly,
