The International says: "Monday
morning a session of the commission
was held in accordance to notices
posted the day before, nnd 12 or In
witnesses were examined. The chief
points of contention seem io be the
question of raiiroad fare, over-charges
for merchandise and conditions of
sleeping apartments. The members
visited most of the camps, and especially those of which special compluints
had been made, It was shown tliut
much of the trouble seems lo have or
iginaied from the representations made
by the employment agents down east,
'Especially was this the case wilh the
question of railroad fare. The coin-
mission left Wardner Monday afternoon for Fort Steele, and from there
they will fro to Crnnhrook and on
west, expecting to complete their work
along the line within a week. They
will go out by Nelson, and then return
to Calgary. Winnipeg and points in
Ontario and Quebec and take further
testimony, and expect to have their
report ready to submit to the Government by the first of April."

Mr. F. M. Chadbotirn, of Nelson,
has just concluded a deal whereby h
strong London syndicate bus acquired
control of the Matterhorn group on
Toby Creek. There are six claims iu
the group. The claims were locale.1
last July, and have ou alt a strong
ledge showing, assaying 15 to 45 per
cent, copper. $5 to $25 in gold and 80
ounces in silver. Not much work has
yet been done on the group beyond a
few prospect holes. A first payment
was cabled to tbe Bank of Briiish Col-
uiuhia at Nelson, and the remainder of
ihe bond will follow in a year. Work
will he commenced by a force of men
as soon as the snow disappears.
Messrs. Moodie and Estelleare forming a mining partnership to s uk a
shaft to bedrock at the mouth of Canyon Creek. Two attempts have hem
made to bottom this creek but without
success, and it is now proposed to put
ill steam pumps to keep down the
water, and then closely timber the
shaft, Iu this way It Is believed1.bed
rock can be reached and the ground
properly tested. In the previous attempts made to bottom this creek the
ground bus improved in gold value
with denth, unci at 15 feet there ha��
been no increase in water. Tho experiment appears to be well worth a trial.
The prospectus has been issued und
that and the deed of louse may be seen
on application at The Era office.
D. W. King editor of Ihe Kootanian
has issued a circular-letter designed as
the first gun in a campaign of work
looking towards the fostering of the
lead mining, smelting and manufacturing interests of Canada through the
reclamation and preservation of the
Canadian market for Canadian lead,
thereby making it possible to work the
lower grade lead mines and carry on
profitably the industry of smelting in
Mr. King says: "It is absolutely
impossible, because oT this tarilf discrimination between lead iu ore and
lead in bullion, to carry on nt a profit
the industry of mining and smelting
of ores of any grade, inasmuch as under present conditions our lead must
go to Ihe United States markets. It
is a fact that t. o lead miners rf the
United States are, under a protective
tariff on lead, successfully and profitably operating mines that lange iu
grade from I�� to 30 per cent lower
than those which iu British Columbia,
under present conditions, we cannot
think of operating. Kootenay has the
highest grade lend mines In thn world,
yet the lead product of her highest
grade ores, because of being forced Into a hostile market, fall short of paying tbe freight, treatment and duty
charges And were it not for the association of silver with the lead thev
could not be worked at all. The reason
we are forced into that market lies In
the utter absence of an available home
market. The home market is not
available because of a low Canndian
import duty on lead and lead products,
which admits foreign leads and for-
eign lead manufactures comparatively
free. The United States tariff on lead
in bullion, pig and tbe principal lead
products, is. nverage.l, four times
greater than that of Canada. Canada
draws her lead supply principally from
the United States and Mexico, and sh"
will never consume the product of her
own load mines until she has placed
her lead miners nnd her lead smellers
on an equal footing with those of the
United Stales; until she has by a similar tariff act, shut out the .-heap leads
of Mexico and placed   herself   beyond
tho control and influence of the United
States Lead Trust. The lead miners
of the United States areenjoylug greai
prosperity today because iliey are protected by their tarilf.
"Some three years ago the Dominion
Go- eminent sought to fi ster tiie smelting industry by offering a bonus of
$150,000 to he paid at the rate of $.'10,-
000 per year with a maximum of 5u
cents per ton ou nil ores sineltol in
Cauti.la. This wus wholly ineffective.
The Pilot Bay smelter made a short
run, closed down and will not he blown
in again under existing conditions. A
splendid lead stack al the Hall Alii.e-t
uopper smelter, Nelson, remains idle,
and notwithstanding rumois, the C. P,
R. will never attempt to stueit lua.l
ores at Trail or Rohsnn until a market
other than [liiiie.l Siaies is found for
their product.
"An export duty as a means of forcing the smelting of lend ores in Canada is not to bethought of, as ic would
completely prostrate lead mining
without Queuing the Canadian market
to Canadian lead.
"The only solution, then, li.-s in following the example ul" United Suites
and readjusting ..ml raising 'he itir.ff
ou lead to a figure at lease equal to
thai of that country. Bv so doing wo
would preserve t he Canadian market
for Cuuadian lead. This would bring
into existence, bv an immediate demand for lead, home corroding works,
home refineries home factories, ami
home smelters, thereby giving employment to Canadian labor ami re asserting Canada's coiiiuieruiat independence,
"The problem of lend smelling in
Canada can only he solved through a
prohibitive tariff on lead iu pig or bars,
white lead, dry or mixed, bull o ., lead
i.'ianuiuutures and all articles tu tun
composition of which lead figures lo
any considerable extent, Canada will
never be iu a po.-itiou to uitiuufauture
lead until she has tlie lead smelters.
She wilt never have a lead siu.-I er until she has shut out fo.eigti lends and
made the home marketavailanle to the
home smclier.
"The question naturally follows,
can Canada consume the product of
tier lead mine*? Theufflclal statistics
given out by the Department of Trade
and Commerce show the consumption
of lead in bar, sheet, white lead and
load manufactures to be aliQUt 2.'i.00(i
tons per annum. The lead output or
Canada for the year 1897 was appioxi-
maiely 18,000 tons. 7,000 tons short of
the consumption. It is true that ihe
establishment of factories to supply
ihedemand for lead products would re
quire time, Inn there is already a Can
adian market for 8.010 tons of |,ij
lead, none of which is now supplied by
Canadian mines and tile comparative!,
ei.sv esiiibiisiue���t of corroding works
would make a market for (i,uU0 tons
more for the manufacture of lead
paints. On the immediate o- any fu
lure surplus we would be at no greater
disadvantage, so far as the United
States market is concerned than we
are at the present lime. Eighty per
cent of ihe output could be . liuost immediately utilize! iu Canada.
Tiie effect of such a measure woul I
be, of course, to greatly stinx.late lend
mining In Canada, as it wo. Id make
it possible to then work at a profit
mines so low iu grade as to tie now
woithless. and so greatly increase the
output. Hut great Btneltlng and manufacturing concerns would 'hen have
lieeu established, and they, being iu a
better position than the individual
miner with his ores, or a lone and
unprotected .smelter with its bullion,
could seek the Orient or liurope as  a
arket for this surplus."

FRIDAY, MARCH 11, 1898.
We publish in another column an
article in the foru of a circular letter
issued by Mr. King, editor of the
Kaslo Kootenian. "'���'erybody ought
to read that article whether interested
in mining or not. It draws attention
to a scandalous state of things as affecting the mining industry, and
shows that at the present time an enterprise of so much importance is entirely at the mercy of the TJuited
States Lead Trust. The writer proves
that there is a large Citnadian market
for lead and that by adopting the
United States policy of shutting out
foreign lead British Columbia could
supply the Canadian market, thus
establishing the industry on an independent, firm, and solid tooting, and
resulting in the establishment of lead
smelters an 1 refineries. As Mr. King
argues, when the industry is put on
such a basis it can fight its own way,
and establish f .reign markets for the
surplus. What has got to be done is
to secure the monopoly i.f the home
market first, and this would, for the
present, consume the wlu.le of the
British Columbia output. If the Turner-Pooley crowd were worth their
salt and hud the interests of the Province at stake, instead of being servitors to the pockets of their friends,
they would take up a matter of this
sort and hare it urged on the Dominion Government, who should ole .rly,
in the interest of industry adopt
a retaliatory measure in a case of
this kind, and show to the United
States and the world that this country
has some sslf respect and Independence
of spirit and action. With all our
free trade boasting Canada is today
confessedly under a stringent protective tariff and it is well that it is so.
Such a tariff is necessary as a matter
of expediency where we have to deal
with a Congress that sticks at nothing
to gain advantages at the expense of
its neighbour. Protective we are, and
protective we shall nave to be, until
such time as this Dominion can afford
to act otherwise, and it cannot do that
until it receives the co-operation instead of the antagonism of a nation
like the United States, with whom it
carries on such a large trade. We
hope those members ot the B. C. Legislature who represent the mining districts will take this up and have a
resolution on the subject adopted and
submitted to the Dominion Govern-
ment. We also suggest that all
Boards of Trade, Miners Associations,
and above all the Mintrs Institutes,
should take up this matter and push
It to a successful issue. There are
many influential interests in the Eastern Provinces connected with our min
Ing resources and although some
manufacturers would allow their selfish
We hear very great complaints from
persons interested in mining operations
about the exoeaive freight rates, which
are blocking business and preventing
the development of the country. Cer-
tian English firms want to buy ores in
British Columbia and would have established sampling works at Golden
and Vancouver, but it has been found
impossible to get from the C. P. R. a
reasonable rate of fre'ght at which
such ores could be handled and so both
schemes have had to be dropped for
the present. It is a crying shame
that any corporation should be in the
position ot tying up these mineral resources ot the country for such a cause.
Mine owners are made to suffer,
progress is hindered, labor is deprived ot empleyment because
of this huge Government aided
monopoly that is gnawing the
vitals of the country. Meantime
English smelter owners will have to
continue to draw their supplies of ore
from the States, Mexico and South
America. This all goes to show ths
nesesssity of a Railway Cominisson as
suggested by Mr. Jamieson, M, P.
which will have the power to dictate
to the C. P. R. fair and reasonable
rates. These rates should be based
on full enquiries by the commission
and the C. P. R. ought to be compelled under severe penalties to live up to
the rates on which the commision
shall decide. If the C. P. R. are not
satisfied with such an arrangement let
the Dominion Government take over
the Company's roads and manage them
iu the public interest.

The fact that the corrupt Turner-
Pooley Government defeated the mortgage tax resolution by only four votes
on a strict party vote, in a servile assembly, is the boot evidenoethe opposition could wish of the fact that the
Cabinet have not only entirely lost the
confidence of the people of British Columbia, but also that of many of their
own supporters. The loyalty of the
people to the public good as a whole
could have no other result, and we
take it that it is a healthy sign that
public opinion is at last being aroused
to the Dnnsinuir dominance nt Victoria, resulting in the demand thnt the
reins of Government shall be placed in
the hands of those who will administer the public affairs of the Province
disinterestedly, ruber than by the
sacrifice of the public estate for the
benefit of their friends as has of recent
years been the case.
The actual work of construction on

The clouds
have hardly held
more rain drops
than the tears
which have fallen
from women's
eyes. There is a
world of truth in
the old song
which said: "Man
must work, and
woman must
weep," Women
must weep not
only for the troubles and Ills of
those they love,
but because of
,the physical agony and suffering
that they themselves endure la
Nine-tenths of
the pain and suffering that women undergo
could be avoided
by a little knowledge, and a resort to tbe right remedy.
When a woman feels weak, sick, nervous,
fretful and despondent, and suffers from
pains in the back and sides, and burning
and dragging down aensationr, she is suffering from weakness and disease of the
distinctly feminine organism. Dr. Pierce's
Favorite Prescription is the best of all
medicines for ailing women. It acts directly and only ou the delicate'and important organs that make maternity possible.
It makes them strong and well. It allays
inflammation, heals ulceration, soothes
pain, and tones the nerves. It does away
with the usual discomforts of the timorous
period, and makes baby's coming eaay and
almost painless. It is the discovery of Dr.
P.. V. Pierce, an eminent and skillful specialist, for thirty years chief consulting
physician to the Invalids' Hotel and Surgical Inatitute, at Buffalo, N. V. No honest
dealer will urge a substitute for this superior medicine.
" I cannot say too much for Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription," write. Mlsa Clara BUM, of
TheFree Lance says: We wieh some
Klondike? would come atom; aud buy
up all the town dogs and take them beyond the 69th parallel. Golden reechoes the sentiment.
It is figured that Hardy will have a
majority of at leas' six in ths next
House, probably more. No one seems
to expect he will not be able to canyon
the Government of Ontario.
Owing to a difficulty raised about
Dr. Cross practicing in British Columbia under his pie-ent Manitoba qualifications, he has hnd to go from Donald to Winnipeg in connection with
tbe matter.
On the morning ot Feb. SO, 1895, I

Mr. Patching, of the Toronto Globe,
paid 11 visit to Golden on Thursday
and Friday of last week, his object
being to write up the Golden Era
Air Line for the forthcoming special
edition of the Globe on the Yukon
routes. Mr. Patching was much Im-
presesed with the claims of the Columbia Valley and Golden to the best
route to the northern country when
once properly opened up. The spscia!
sec'ion of the Globe to lie devoted to
the Golden Era Air Line was well
supported by local advertisers.
The report circulated some weeks ago
that the Canadian Flag had been planted at Summit Lake was confirmed by
Major Perry of the Northwest Mounted
Police. The major also reported that
the Canadian flag has been planted at
Ciater Luke, the summit of the Dyea
trail, and in fact Canadian police stations are to be established at both
these lakes, Canada thereby asserting her claim to the summit of the
coast range. These stations although
they are well within the boundary as
claimed by Canada, are also in the territory claimed by the States.

Dan Mann ttlvus a Few P��lat��ra--A
SUIgh Road to T.alla Lake.
Dan Mann states that the first 60
miles of the Stickine rail way am pretty
rough work with a rise of about 3,000
feet in the distance. There are now
three engineering parties in the country
locating the line, having gone in bv
dog train, and a fourth is now on the
way. Mr. Mann advises parties not
to start over this road till March 15,
as all experienced travelers in tbat district say that np till that time cold
and terrific storms from tbe mountains
aweep down the canals along the coast
and down the river valleys, rendering
travelling very difficult. After March
15 old miners from the Cassiar country
say good weather can be relied upon.
Tbe Stickine river between Wrangel
and Glenora. Mr. Mann lays gives
good navigation from ice to ice. There
���re now seven outfits on the lias of the
sleigh road, these are composed of 185
teams and over 250 men. The sledge
road from Wrangel to Glenora is now
in passable shape with stopping placos
along it. About 15 teams per week
with men to work them are being added to the outfit.
Regarding the road from Glenora to
Teslin Lake there i* now a one ho.-se
sleigh road over this route, and Mr.
Mann has hired the men who made it
to widen it out to a two horse road.
Three large independent outfits are on
the way to Teslin Lake to build steam
boats to run from Teslin Lake to Dawson and these men have also been hired
to work on this road. These three
companies will represent at least four
or five steamboats to run from Lake
Teslin to Dawson.
The workman often eats his lunch
on the same bench where he does his
work. The office man turns his desk
into a dining table. Neither gets the
out of doors exercise he needs, neither takes the proper time for eating.
It is small wonder that the digestion
of bo h gets out of order. In such
cases Dr. Pieice's Pleasant Pellets
come to their assistance by aiding nature in taking care of the food.
The cause of nine-tenths of the sickness of the world is constipation.
From this one cause cotne indigestion;
disorders of the stomach, liver and
kidneys; biliousness, headaches, flatulence, heartburn, impurity of the blood
and the- serious complications that follow. To begin with, constipation is a
little thing, and ajittle thing will cure
It. The ''Pleasant Pellets" are tiny,
sugar-coated granules. They will perfectly cure the worst case of constipation and indigestion, If the druggem
tries to sell you sune other pill that
pays him greater profit, just think of
what will beat pay you. 311
The Montreal Gazette, commenting
editorially on the Canadian Pacific's
annual statement, finishes as follows:
���'The Canadian Pacific Railway Company is only 18 years old. When its
project was published the people
thought It could never be executed.
The system comprises 7,676 miles of
road, owned and operated, and two
steamships lines on the Pacific. It
has assets representing a value of
$945,000,000, earns $24,000,000 per
year, and is paying dividends, where
some thought it would not earn the
axle grease for its rolling stock. Its
etory is one of the most wonderful in
the annals of modern businsss enterprises."

Mitford gave way under a freii lit

General bringing iu a bill which practically makes the C. P. K. lime the
legal time.
Mr. P.mder, of Donnld. hns received

as the greatest of spring remedies it hat
extraordinary opportunities for inducing the body to throw off morbid
humors that poison it and cause rheumatism, neuralgia, heart trouble and a
general low statu of lite health, as in

chronic diseases, so securely lodged in

Many a father and mother have
