DAWSONFREEYET
First Cold Snap of the Season Up North.
DAMAGE BY A CLOUD BURST
New Library—Contractors Will Not
Bid—Railway Supplies Coming
in at Westminster.
Vancouver, Oct. 16.—News from
the north by the Hating'8 passengers today was to the effect, that
while the cold snap has caused
small freezings of ice at Dawson, it
was not expected that the river
would finally freeze over for some
time yet, A cloud-burst ocourred
on upper Hunker creek and three
feet of water suddenly flowed down
carrying everything in sight, but
doing comparatively little real
damage.
Kails and other supplies for the
new line of railway from South
Westminster to the mouth of
Fraser river have been ordered
from the old country by Captain
McKenzie and others interested in
the syndicate for the fast ferry to
Victoria. The rails will arrive
here in the spring and the work
will be pushed early in the summer.
Contractors are declining to put
in tenders for the Carnegie library
on the grounds that the building
cannot be created for $40,000 as
specified, but will cost $60,000.

ROSSLAND
LIBERALS
No  Vote  Taken   on   the
Alien  Labor   Act
Situation.
There was a well attended session
of the Rossland Liberal association
in the board of trade rooms last
night. The meeting was an interesting and exciting one throughout and generally there was a warm
time.
It is staled that Hon. Smith
Curtis urged the members present
to stand by tho alien labor act, and
request the Liberal government to
duly enforce it, and Mr. Curtis evidently had a large following present. Some of the members thought
that the act would be inforced in
due time, and opposed tho idea of
moving in tho matter at this stage.
After a long and somewhat
heated discussion tho association
decided to adjourn without taking
any immediate action. The vote
to adjourn was carried by a very
small majority.

LATEST MORGAN COMBINE
A Huge Steel and Fuel Trust to
Be Formed.
WILL BUILD SHIPS FOR THE WORLD
Another Gigantic Consolidation Will Shortly Be Complete-Big Railway Interests Involved-
Some Details.
New York, Oct. 16.—The Journal and Advertiser today says that
an industrial combination to consolidate the armour plate manufacture of thiB country, enter into the
building of merchant and war
ships for the world's trade and
take over a large and growing export trade of the United States
Steel corporation is about to be organized by J. Pierpont Morgan and
his allies.
The article then says that while
no official   details  are   obtainable
that the project will not only consolidate many details of the steel
and fuel business of the country,
now separated, but also serve to
bring in closer relationship their
interests and the great railway
interests controlled by the Vanderbilts and the Pennsylvania railroad.
These interests are also to be
closely allied with, if not made a
unit with large interests of like
character abroad and that the new
company will be called the Anglo-
American Co.
CANADIAN
DOCTORS
England Willing to Reciprocate—Scotch Foot Ball
Team Coming.
London, Oct. 16.—The reason
that the war ollice declined the
services of the young Canadian
with a medical degree from a Canadian college, who wanted to return to South Africa, waB due to
the fact that he had no English
degree and was not registered.
The Knglish law does not permit
the employment of any but English doctors, but if Canada would
permit the English doctors to prac-
in Canada without securing a Canadian degree, England would reciprocate.

COAST POLITICS.
Hon. Smith Curtis has returned
to Rossland after very materially
assisting in the defeat of J. C.
Brown of New Westminster.
The Rossland member is very
outBpoken in his condemnation of
the Dunsmuir Government, and he
is of the opinion that the premier
will be forced to resign once the
provincial house meets.
Mr. Curtis thinks that in the
event of Mr. Dunsmuir's retirement
a coalition government might be
formed for the purpose of passing a
re-distribution act and some other
pressing matters, though. he does
not seem very sanguine that the
members who are opposed to the
present government can agree
among themselves on a temporary
truce sufficient to paBB the necessity legislation.
The program includes a general
election, once the matters in question are disposed of, and Mr. Curtis
adds that he hopes tha cr.Tpaiojn
will be fought out on straight federal party lines.
The Dunsmuir government have
decided to hold on to office until
they are driven out and as our
member tells us that it is not proposed to hold a session until next
April or May, many things may
happen between now and next
spring which will put a different
aspect on the face of political
affairs in this province.
The World warmly sympathizes
with Mr. Curtis' desire for an energetic government policy which will
assist in permanently developing
the resources of British Columbia,
and any step which will tend to
hasten such a state of affairs will,
we are sure, meet with the approval of Rossland people even if
they have to undergo the delights
of a general election.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Has any reason—good or otherwise—been mentioned why the Le
Roi companies should be the only
working mining corporations today in British Columbia who refuse to pay muckers $3 per day?
The testimony of correspondents
who have travelled from end to
end of Canada with the royal party
is tbat Toronto's welcome as a
whole surpassed the demonstrations
in any other Canadian city.—Telegram.
Canada's loyalty is not of the
foudal type. The loyalty which
spoke in cheers from the throats of
free men, women and children
meant something higher and nobler
than the loyalty of the liege man
to his foudal superior.—Telegram.
Wc respectfully suggest the
name of Mr. Albert Geiser for the
vacant Le Roi directorship. To
quote a recent paragraph, "his intimate knowledge of the mine
workings could not fail to be of
great assistance to London board
and the shareholders generally."
porting the London-Australia mails
illustrates the enterprise of the
managements of these roads in the
speed maintained for long distances, and t"he wonderfully perfect
syBtem which enables a car to be
sent whizzing across the continent
over connecting but separate lines.
The contract mentioned was secured by demonstrating that the time
from Sydney to London oould be
reduced seven days, as compared
with the time required by the route
through the Suez canal; and as a
result, the British mails from its
largest colony, embracing both
official and private matter, will
hereafter cross the United States
on route.—Post-Intelligencer.
Sir Charles Elliott, who is visiting in Canada, is the chief director
of the railway system in Cape
Colony, which is operated by the
government. They have no deficit
there. They have no favoritism.
The government railways are operated as any other business—upon
business principles. The railways
pay six per cent profit. There are
some two thousand miles of railway in the country. All the lines
are single. The equipment approximates to that which prevails in
Canada, but the rates are higher.
First olass is three-pence per mile,
second twopence, and the third
one penny. Suburban traffic is
cheaper, and where there are
waterways there are reductions.
The Rossland Miner eulogises
and appreciates the meritsof unionism, since it carries the union label
at the head of its editorial column;
but, further down the column, and,
indeed, throughout the entire
paper, iu puts forth its best efforts
to discredit this same unionism.

' Premier Seddon of New Zealand,
replying to the Anglican Synod of
Waiapu regarding their resolution
favoring a system of government
ownership of the liquor tariff, said
their conclusions would receive
the earno. t consideration of himself and bis colleagues. The resolution passed without a dissentient
voice hy the Synod was as follows:
"Resolved, that this Synod considers that the problem of temperance reform can be best dealt with
at the present time by the elimination of private profit from the sale

He lost, but he has no fault to
find, because the Columbia was the
better boat. Victory is, after all,
not the chief end of sport. |To play
fairly to do the best, to get enjoyment from the contest, to give
pleasure to others, to accept manfully the award of the palm to the

Rossland, B. C, Sept. 5th, 1901.
To the Citizens and Business Men of Rossland and Vicinity and to the General Public:
The Le Roi mine manager has been circulating a report that the strike here is practically at an end and the mines are about to resume. This report has been taken up by their
organ, the Morning Miner, and sent out over the country as a true report of the situation in
Rossland. We have made a careful analysis of the situation here and believe that no impartial reader can see much reason for the joyful enthusiasm which Mr. Bernard Macdonald
and his paper profess to feel.
For three and one-half months the strike has been in force at Northport. The greatest claim Macdonald or Kadish have ever made during that time is that they have been
able to operate two of the five furnaces at the smelter. It is only a question of simple arithmetic to see that it it takes three and one-half months to start two furnaces, it will take
eight and three-fourths months before they can have the smelter in operation. Now, if it
takes eight and three fourths months to secure the 500 men necessary to start the smelter
it will take twice that many, or seventeen and one-half months, to secure 1000 men for the
mines in Rossland. Or, at the end of twenty-six and one-half months, if Macdonald has the
same success he claims to have had thus far at the smelter, he will be in a position to work
the mines.
No one can deny or dispute that Bernard Macdonald has left no stone unturned ta
secure men for the smelter at Northport. He has cast his drag net over the states of Minnesota, Colorado, California, Oregon, Missouri, Montana, or, practically, over the entire
country west of the Mississippi river, and has been able to start but two of the five furnaces
at the Northport smelter. This is the success he boasts. He claims the strike is at an end.
It has only begun.
So far we have taken as true his statements that he has two furnaces in operation at
-Northport. We wished to prove how futile are his statements by his own evidence.
The real truth is he has never had two furnaces in successful operation at one time for 24
hours. They have produced no matte for shipment up till August 25. He claims to have.
shipped one carload on August 2(. That it was the highest in value of any shipment made.
The records of the railroad at Northport fail to show any trace of matte shipments on
or about August 21, If any shipment was made it was via the Columbia river route and
rests at the bottom of the river.
He also claims to be able to start the mines in Rossland. Apparently he does not
realize there is an alien act in Canada, for of the 30 employes now at the mines all but two
have been brought here in direct violation of this law and will be deported inside of^-two
weeks. He has in eight weeks been able to secure but two scabs in Canada. Now, if the
Canadian people should, to his surprise, enforce their laws, even if it does hurt the feelings
of Bernard Macdonald, how long will it take to start the mines at the ratio of two every
eight weeks?   And as yet there is not a miner in the lot.
We are not deceiving the miners of Rossland by false promises. We hope for an
honorable settlement of the difficulties here. The sooner the better it will suit the union
miners of Rossland. But if it is necessary to continue this fight to its final end the union
miners and smeltermen will stand shoulder to shoulder for carrying on the fight.
' This war was forced on these unions. We entered the struggle full of a belief in the
justice of our cause and confident of our ability to carry it successfully to an end. This belief has never been shaken for an instant, and certainly is not when we consider the almost
unbroken line of successes which have thus far attended our efforts.

A BANK SCHEME
Australian Financier and
State Banks.
NOWADAYS WE KNOW BETTER
Thought Too Revolutionary at One
Time —Cheap Money for
Everybody.
Experiences in tho past have revealed the incompetence and lack
of consideration to the public by
the banks,'ond recent experiments
in State management have shown
how very much better the State
can run the banking business.
When the Bank of New Zealand
and the Queensland National Bank
failed, the governments of the respective colonies were implored to
come to the rescue. And the governments did so with gratifying
results. The Bank of New Zealand, which lost £37,346 in its last
year of private management, made
a splendid profit of 1242,520 for its
last year under State management,
In like manner the Queensland
National Bank, which lost £37,033
in itB last year under private management, made a profit during its
last year under modified State
control of £54,788. It muBt not be
forgotten that in each case the
profits were less than they should
have been on account of the mass
of non-profit-earning assets left behind by the imbecile private management. It iB a pity that the
governments of New Zealand and
Queensland did not take over the
banks in time, instead of merely
nursing them into solvency. The
scheme seemed too revolutionary
a few years ago; but nowadays we
know bettor. N
The State bank idea is no novelty. France has for yearssuccess-
fully conducted a State bank, to
the great benefit of her agricultural
population. Land banks, either
State or otherwise, have existed for
many years in Germany, Austria,
France, Russia, Norway, Sweden,
Denmark, and other countries. In
fact, the time has come when no
State with a civilized land system
is complete without them. South
Australia and Victoria have State
land banks run on liberal lines
which are proving eminently useful institutions. The experience of
Maoriland and Queensland, to say
nothing of very many yoars of experience ln Europe, has shown that
the State can run a banking busi
ness safely and profitably, and
furnish a more secure place for the
deposit of the people's money than
any private institution can offer.
Not being obliged to earn heavy
dividends for shareholders, a State
bank can afford to lend money
cheaper than any private institution. With only H or 4 per
cent, to pay on its capital, and
limitless credit on the security of
the State lands and reproductive
works, the State bank can become
a handsome source of revenue.—

Lascellei Declared lusnne.
At the criminal assizes at Golden
last week the chief case of interest
was that of Frank Lascelles
charged with the murder of a
Chinaman last summer. Since
the preliminary hearing before
justices of the peace, Lascelles has
been confined in the provincial
asylum for the insane. The killing of the Chinaman was not denied, the defence being that the accused was insane at the time. The
jury concluded that this was the
case and Lasce lies was taken back
to the New Westminster asylum.
