Mr. Kellie, M. P., waa on tho War.
path.-Some Stern Home Trutha
for T.-P.
In the Legislative Assembly J. M.
Kellie gave Mr, Booth his explanation
of what he considered a fair measure
of redistribution. He said that it
should bo a measure which would recognize that a man in Kootenay was
just as good as a man in any other
part of the province���just as good as a
man in Esquimau. Cowichuu or Al'
berni. He resumed the statement of
the member for North Victoria (Mr.
Booth) that the mines of Kootenay
had been developed by the pledged
credit of the rest of the province. He
reminded Mr. Booth that tho revenue
from his district was about $7,000,
whereas the revenue from Kootenay
was $310,000. Since Kootenay was
contributing so large a revenue, he
held that it should receive more consideration in the way of representation and appropriations, than it was
getting, During the past year he
stated, the government had taken over
$200,000 more out of Kootenay than it
had expended in the district. Kootenay was a big district, but there was
a very small amount spent upon trails
and roads in tho region, in comparison
with the amount spent iu other sections. The policy of the government
was to cinch the miners of Kootenay
at every turn. In Kootenay, the government took the miners by the throat
and made them pay $5 for the privilege of working in the mines. In tho
coal mines of Vancouver Island there
was no such charge made. Ho
wanted to know why the
miners of Kootenay were obliged to pay when the miners of Vancouver Island were allowed to go scot
free? The government disciiminnted
not only against the working miners
of Kootenay, but against the mine
owners of Kootenay as well. Thoy
had to pay a tax upon their output,
whereas no tax was imposed upon (he
output of the coal mines. Mr. Kellie
also stated that the public accounts
showed that the money taken from
Kootenay was used to defray the educational expenses of municipalities
throughout the province. There was
something wrong in the government's
system, which permitted municipalities
to be created and absorb the revenues
of the province and then called for the
expenditure of the general revenue of
the 'rrovince with in such municipalities
for educational purposes. Mr. Kellie
dubbed the speech from the throne as n
set of bare bones, There was nothing
of importance in it. There was a promise of patch-work of redistribution
but there was nothing said about the
repeal of the tax upon working miners,
nor the repeal of tbe mortgage tax.
There was nothing to intimate that
the coal barons would pay their share
of thn taxes. Mr. Kellie spoke against
both the Vancouver & Eastern Rail-
way subsidy and Mackenzie & Mann's
other railway subsidy. Upon the question of redistribution, he urged the
claim of West Kootenay for additional
representation. Upon the basis of revenue or population West Kootenay, as
compared with some of the other districts, was entitled to 52 members upon
the floor of the House. For his part
he proposed to enter a protest against
the further milking of Kootenay, unless the government was prepared to
pay something for the cow. As to the
question of the Nelson & Fort Shep-
pard Railway land grant, the government hnd clearly exceeded its authority in over-riding the provisions of the
Land Oram Act. Ho mado the specific sharps that the government had allowed the railway company to grnb
4,800 acres of land north of Rossland
as line lands, when the grand total of
land which the company could show
that it was entitled tn did not aggro-
gate one-half that amount. He also
criticised the Lands and Works Department for its failure to issue a
Crown grant to Alex. Currio for his
pre-emption within tho railway lauds,
which had boen provided up as early
as 1892. He charged the government
with betraying the free minors of
Kootenay, in that it allowed D. C.
Corbin to charge mine owners for timber whioh the miners whore entitled to
under the Mineral Act.

The snow is now disappearing in
the Crow's Nost Pass. The weather is
mild and the railway will probably he
completed as far ap tho coal mines In
May. There will be from eight to 10
thousand tons of coal awaiting shipment by that time,���Calgary  Herald.
J. Henderson returned from the
Burns Basin on snowshoes on Friday,
finding the trip a pretty hard one. The
tunnel on the Lincoln has been driven
80 feet and that on the Lucky Jack 40
fee**. In the latter claim tho miners
struck some nice ore the day Mr. Henderson left.
It is learned from Ainsworth that
the Omaha & Grant Smelter company
has suspended operations in the Koot-
enays and closed all plants in which it
is interested. Tho motive is not known,
as it has been considered that tlHr
operations were profitable, They havo
been running tho concentrator at Pilot
Bay for several weeks,
F. C. Lang's mineral cabinet does
him so much credit, that we aro glad
to learn the Government have authorized him to have it built the full
width of the Mining Recorder's office.
When filled with specimens got up in
the stylo of the present cabinet it will
constitute one of the finest mineral
collections on tho American continent.
Mr. A. St, G. Hainersley,���ot Vancouver, proposes to start sampling works at
Rosehcrry. West Kootenai. Ho has
secured the ground for tiie site and arranged for the machinery and special
freight rates, and has signed conducts
for 4U0 tons ot oro per month. J. Of-
strander, formerly of Denver, Colo.,
and a man of a large experience, will
be manager of tho works, and H. K.
Walton, formerly of Golden, will be
nssayer and hook keeper.
We give Col. Baker, as Minister of
Mines, credit for one thing, and thnt is
that in appointing the Provincial Mineralogist he has sought to obtain the
best man independent, of other considerations. The appointment of Mr.
Carlyle has been a most beneficial one
to the Province, and now we have another nble man appointed ns his successor, iu the person of R. G. McC'on
nell, of tho Dominion Geological Department, who has accepted the position. His geological work has for the
last 10 or 12 years oeen mostly in this
Province and during that time ho has
travelled extensively over British Columbia. He has done Hold work in
Cariboo, Cassiar, Kamloops district,
Ea.-t and West Kootenay, his last
three years being spout mostly in the
Kooteuays. Ho Iihs thorough scientific^ attainments and is a good practical man. high principled and thoroughly disinterested in his work.
The Nelson Tribune expresses the
following-opinion: ''Tampering with
the Mineral Act is to bo at all times
condemned, nnd the proposed changes,
originated by W. A. Carlyle, affecting
tho life of a location are not lavored
by the miners, and should not be countenanced by the Mining Committee of
the Legislature. As the nature of the
changes becomes more familiar, the
greater is tho opposition evinced
throughout the district, To tho capitalist it would work no hardship, but
to the prospector it would mean his
all. There can bo no general fault
found with tho act as it now stands,
and it tends to greater confidence from
the prospector than the proposed
amendment would evoke. To be circumscribed in the scope of his operations does not encourage the prospec
ting of a country's mineral resources
hy the hardy miner. British Columbia does not aim to be narrow in its
laws, believing in the most good for
the general masses���a fact that should
he ever before the eyes of the Legislature."
A new strike of copper ore hes been
made recently on tho east side of Wild
Horse Creek, within a half mile of
Fort Stoele.
Mr. Shier has put a small force of
men at work developing the Riverside mining claim. This property is
situate.1 within two miios of Steele.
The tunnel now being run on the
Colassal group, on the East Fork of
Wild Horse Creek, is now iu 82 feet,
with a splendid showing of mineral.
Tho Browery Creek Placer Mining
Company have let contract to sink a
shaft to bod rock on their placer property on Brewery Creek.
Tho North Star Company has a
large force of men taking out ore on
the North Star, also the Midnight, and
report has it that a considerable
amount of rich galena has been struck
on the latter claim.
Mr. H. T. Collett has gone east from
Great Falls, Montana, to purchase
machinery for the Dodo group of
mines, situated on tbe East Fork of
Wild Horse.

Tho monthly meeting of thn Minora
Association was hold at the Columbia
House on Tuesday night. Present:���
Messrs. Jones, McNeish, Wallace,
Noble, Hatch, Logan, Mercier, M.
Dainard, Lung-lauds, Bfliea, Munson,
Conner, Cartwright aud Haggen. In
the absence of the president Mr. Dainard was voted to the chair.
A letter was read from the president
stating that he had to be unavoidably
A circular was road giving particulars of the Mining Institute for British
Mr. Ay liner's paper, read at last
meeting, advocating the doing away
with assessment conditions and levying a tax instead, then came up for
The chairman said he was not in
favor of doing away with assess ment
work. The president's proposal would
be more in favor of the middle man
than the prospector, and the monied
man was the one who would principally gain.
Mr. Mercier did not tit ink they
should meddle with the assessment.
Mr. Langlands agieed that such a
proposal would not help out the prospector.
It was considered that the president
should have an opportunity of being
present to defend his proposals, and on
the motion of Mr. Mercier, seconded by
Mr. McNoish, it was resolved that further discussion of the subject bo post*
poned till next meeting.
The secretary thought up the question of the present provision of tiie
Mineral Act which allowed the assessment work to be avoided by the payment
of ��100 into the treasury, and contended that such a provision was against
the development of tho country. They
wanted to combine the mutual aid of
capital and labor, and the way to do
that was to require all holders of mines
to do assessment work so as to give
employmont to the poorer class of prospectors. He moved that the Minister
of Mines he requested to abolish the
clause which permits assessment obligations to be avoided by a money payment.
Seconded by Mr, Mercier and carried.
On the motion of the Chairman,
seconded by Mr. Wallace, it was resolved to urge on the Dominion Govern*
ment the appointment of a Dominion
portfolio of mines for the purpose of
advancing tho interests of tho mining
industries of the Dominion, and that a
copv of the resolution be forwarded to
Mr.'Bostock, M. P.
On the motion of Mr. McNeish, seconded by Mr. Noble, it was resolved to
endorse the resolutions passed at Ross-
land regarding the question of Astatic
labor, aud which were as follows.
"Whereas, The supreme court of
British Columbia has declared constitutional an act passed by the legislature prohibiting the employment of
Chinese in coal mines in tho province;
"'Whereas, It is contended as justification for such legislation that Chinese are a source of dancer in many
ways to the lives and limbs of operatives ot such mines; and
"Whereas, The same elements of
danger to a great extent are to he contended against in metalliferous mines
as are encountered in coal mines, as
well as other dangers that aro unknown to the coal mining industry;
"Whereas, It has been a matter of
common comment that Chinese have
been extensively employed in the Van
Anda metalliferous mine, Texada Island. B. C.
"Therefore he it resolved, That wo
urgently request the government to introduce a law to prohibit the employment of Mongolians in metuliferous
mines, with sufficient penaltiosattached
to secure its due observance and en*
forcemnet as a measure   of   protection
to the lives on J limbs of workmen engaged in the metalliferous mining industry and the Interest of labor generally.
"Whereas. The legislature of British
Columbia in the year 1890 having
deemed it wise and advisable, passed
an act providing for iho prohibition of
tho employment of Chinese underground in coal mines and
'���Whereas It. bus come to onr knowledge that said act has for almost eight
years been openly, flagrantly and viciously violated by the Union Colliery
company, of Vancouver Island, a corporation controlled by the Dunsrauirs,
who have been the recipients of concessions of incalculable value from the
people of this province, and
"Whereas, It is alleged that Chinese
to the number of 600 or H00 are employed in, and at tbo mines of the said
company at Union, B. C, much to the
danger of tho lives and limbs of white
men engaged in said mines and to the
hindrance und detriment of ihe interest
of labor generally and
"Whereas, Said act has been declared constitutional by , the supremo
court of British Columbia, but owing
to ibe fact that no provision has been
made, naming penalties for the punishment of violation therefor, said law is
to ulI practical purposes inoperative
and little better than a farse, therefore
be it.
"Resolved, That wo consider it the
duty of the government to make every
possible provision to compel corpora-
lions to comply with the laws of tbe
province as well as other citizens of
the state, and we request the govern-
to introduce legislation providing for a
penalty of $10 per day for each and
every Chinaman employed in coal
mines contrary to law."
Mr. MoNeish brought up the question of re-looations, H-- suggested an
amendment to tbe Act requiring that a
permit should be obtained from the
Gold Commissioner before a claim
could be re-staked, and then that it
should not be recorded until tbo assessment work is done, for which ��J0 days
should be allowed. In that case and
under these conditions it could be relocated by the original locator or anyone else. The necessity of obtaining a
permit would avoid troublo and litigation which might otherwise ensue.
Mr, Mercier supported this proposal.
Tbe chairman thought 90 days
should be allowed.
Mr. McNeish embodied his suggestion in a motion with the ad i'ion
thai the period (luring which a uliim
should bo h��ld prior to re-location
should be 12 months so as to pro*.ent
its abandonment and ro location by
the original owner in ti al way.
Mr. Mercier seconded. The motion
was carried.

FRIDAY, MARCH 4,  1898.
It must be n matter of regret to
every true Liberal to see the way in
which the Dominion Ministry are do-
parting from Liberal principles in regard to their railway policy. In tho
Crow's Nest Road the Government
had a line opportunity of entering on
the new policy of Government ownership and control -of railways, instead
of giving away tho public property in
the shape of land, nnd tho public funds,
to subsidise a wealthy corporation and
make it more powerful and detrimental
to tbo public interest. For a long
time it has been evident that Canada
is governed neither by Conservatives
nor Grits but by the C. P. R. The recent fall in the C. P. R. stocks, and
tho opinions expressed by the English
and German press, show that they are
alive to the fact that this huge monopoly is cutting a rod for its own back.
The people can only he oppressed so
far and when Sir Willian Van Home
and his associates get their heels down
firmly enough the people will not only
kick but will demand that this monopoly
shall be wipe! out by special legislation in the interest of the country,
Canada is the only British colony
that does not own her railways and
tbe magnificent success of the Government railways in the Australian colonies is a complete answer to tho monopolist slander that the Government
cannot run railways. The Government can employ just as good officers
as tho C. P. R. and indeed the
Government can, and ought to, command the services of the best men in
the sta'.e. Switzerland has decided on
the referendum hy a vast majority to
buy up all the railways iu that counter}', and that the state shall run
them. The state railways of Germany are a remarkable example of the
success of state ownership of railways.
Hungary has the cheapest and most
successful railway system in the
world. All this goes to show what a
huge mistake our towu Government
are making in running railway monopolies as they are doing. They give
the money to build the railway, they
give away the public estate to subsidise it; they subsidise tbe railways
heavily after they are built by the
mail and other cash payments; they
provide huge salaries for officals, and
these salaries have to come out of the
pockets of the public. After they have
found the money, built the road, and
provided the bulk of the fundi for
running it, any reasonable man would
say that they should excerciss some
control over it but instead of the Government controlling the road the
road controls the Government,
For the above reasons
we oannot support the Stickine Railway job. It may not be such a glaring job as some of those perpetrated
bv the Tories In the past, but it is
Tory policy all the same, and one of
the worst features of the policy.   Here
Catarrh can be Cured.
Dr, Henry G. Carroll, M. P., Kamonraska,
Quo., is one of Fifty Members of Parliament Who Havo Successfully Used and
Endorsed Dr. Agnew's Catarrhal Powdor
Medical etiquette and conversation makes
members of tbo profession shy in bearing
testimony to tbo efficacy of a proprietary
medicine. Medicines that tho doctors do endorse you may bo sure are good. Dr. Henry
O. Carroll, M. P., of Kamonraska, Ouo., tolls
over bis own signature of the good qualities
of Dr. Agnew's Catarrhal Powder, not alone
from personal use, but ns a medical man.
Upwards ot filly members of Parliament,
who havo Buttered from catarrh, h*vo used
this medicine with success.
Sold by C. A. Warren. 330
was a case clearly where the Government had every opportunity to put in
shape the policy of state ownership of
railways. An isolated railway, connected with no other system, opening
up mineral lands and with the reasons
of state policy behind it, offered a first
class oppertunity. The Government
could huve found the money as well as
McKenzie and Maun, and by procuring the services of the best men the road
could have been built just as speedily
as by the charter holders. Differential freights could have been put on
United States goods for the benefit of
Canada if neccessary as a retaliatory
measures. The mineral lands would
have been retained by the people. The
Dominion will regret this railway policy only once but that is for ever. The
sooner the Grits change their railway
policy the better both for the party and
the state,
Mr. Casey, MP., has brought into
tho Dominion Houso of Commons a
much needed measure iu the shape of
a bill to enable farmers and others to
cut drains across railway lines as in
the case ol the C. P. R. A strong
necessity for such a law exists no further than Goldon, where, by tho diversion of Hospital Creek, the C, P. R
did great damage to A. Campbell's
farm. So far he has been without
remedy, except that he has been a'
considerable expense in building dams
to keep the water off his farm. By
the aid of this bill he could defy the
C. P. R. and cut a channel across the
railway line so as to deviate the
stream to its natural channel and to
save his land. We hope as a matter
of justice the measure will pass, as
there are doubtless many that have
been placed in the same unjust position
as Mr. Campbell.
Tho Nanaimo Review thus puts it
very truthfully: "Perhaps no more
positive proof is needed of the oft
asserted fact that this province is governed in the interests of the money
class than cr.n be found by a peep into
tho public accounts. The Finuuce
Minister estimated last year that nn
income of $30,000 would be raised by
means of a tax on all incomes above
21,000 per annum, The amount actu
ally received from this source tens but
38037, The same financier predictod a
revenue of $45,000 from mining certificates, but managed to squeeze $166,-
000 from the poor miner. Verity, to
him that hath shall be given, but
from him that hath not shall be taken
even that which lie hath."
We are beginning to hear the truth
about the Yukon, Mr. Liveruash, who
is one of a deputation from Dawson
City to Ottawa says: ''If the simple
truth were brought home to many a
poor fellow now preparing for a trip
to Yukon, much suffering would be
���pared. The truth is that the output
and probable wealth of the Yukon are
vastly exaggerated. He reports that
every dollar thus far extracted from
tbe Klondike has cost one dollar. More
than one half of the men who went to
Klondike last year must be written
down failures. They are poorer than
when they went in."
A man who neglects Ills health is sailing
his craft of life in dangerous ueas. He
cannot too soon awaken to the fact that lie
is imperiling his most precious endowment. All the wealth in the world, all the
power in tbe world, all the pleasure In the
world, all the love and poetry and music
and nobility and beauty are but dust In the
mouth of the man who has lost his health.
Keeping healthy means looking after the
disorders that ninety-nine men in a hundred neglect. You cannot get the average,
every-day man to believe that indigestion
er biliousness, or costiveness or headache
or loss of sleep or appetite, or shakiness in
the morning aud dullness through the day
amount to much anyway. He will "pooh,

We can speak from personal knowledge of tht good work done in this
city by the Dyke Cure for Intemperance, and the consulting physician,
Dr.A. McTaggart, guarantees that the
remedy will do all that is claimed for
it. In proof of this, he is willing
that we become the custodians of each

cure, we are authorized to return the

Dear Sir-We have much pleasure in
giving our testimony to the wonderfnl
effect of the Dyke Cure for one of our
citizens, who was a victim to the drink
habit, He had been addicted constantly for 16 y. itrs, nnd now he can
say truly he has not the least desire
for drink. Will gladly give any information to those desiring it.

At the request of Dr. McTaggart,
the Secretary of the London W.C.T.U.
and myself visited a number of his
patients who had previously been ad
dieted to the too free use of intoxicants, but who. through the taking of
the Dyke cure, were changed from
drinking into non-drinking men and
women, they freely admitting that
even the taste of strong drink has been
removed. Judging from our observations, we think that any alcoholic victim or sufferer would do well to givo
the above cure a trial.

to a friend from Skagway: "Before

territory), or else will have to pay a

first place, ther charged us from S3 to
$4 for clearance papers. Next, the
customs officers keep us waiting three
days before we can get hold of the
goods; meanwhile charging us for
keeping the goods." Dr. Sutherland

The Canadian Pacific Railway

Tbe people of British Columbia are
not easy to satisfy in the matter of the
efforts which government, railways,
press and people of Canada generally
should make in order to secure to the
British Columbia ports the Yukon
business, but the Canadian Pacific
Hallway's course seems to be highly
approved at least by the Victoria (B.C.)
'Times.' It says: The Canadian Pacific Railway Company has shown wonderful, yet characteristic, energy in
dealing with the Klondike question,
they have fairly flooded the United
Kingdom with literature in tbe highest degree beneficial to the interests of
Canada, yet indulging in no abuse or
misrepresentation of the Americans.
The ease for Canada has been put in
���uch a msnnorthatthousaiidswhowould
hare gone to Seattle, Tncoma Portland
and other American points have come to
Viotoria, Vancouver and other British
Columbia cities. The C.P.R. can take
passangers to Seattle quite as cheaply
at they can land them in Victoria or
Vancouver, but it is to the Company's
credit that all their efforts have been
to divert the travel of Canada. We
don't expect railway companies to be
influenced entirely by patriotism, but
the C. P R. have certainly in this
matter done all within their power to
tive Canada the benefit rf their influence without going out of the way to
hurt rival lines by false statements.
The Alaska Coinmerical Companv,
with all their experience in the Yukon
and thorough knowledge of the rules
and regulations governing the import
of goods to the Klondike, purchasing
their stores in Victoria is significant
testimony to the fact that the Canadian campaign has been conducted on
the proper lines and that it will be
completely successful.1'

Dr. Borden. Minist<\* of Militia and
Defonco, informed Mr. BaiUie, of *he
Prospector, that he had been in coni-
inunicaMon with people in tli6 interior
of the Province respecting the. formation of a battalion of infantry in
which companies would be established,
One each nt Kntnloops, Hevelstoke
RrissUnd, Nelson and Fort Steele, and
possibly nt other places. The suggestion was made Ily Mr. Bostock that nt
Fort Steele, where considerable ranching was carried on, a company of
mounted infantry might ho formed of
recti its owning and maintaining their
own horses. The Minister was much
interested and greatly favored with
the idea.
Mr, D.irick.in an interview with the
Toronto Globe, contended -Thnt Fort
Steele is hound to be tho great smelting centre of Kast Kootenay." Mr.
Durick flays ''Fort S'eeln Is bound to
surpass Rossland as a centro of population and -business, and he is now
purchasing supplies to meet the coming demands. His purchases id Toronto include general drygoods, groceries, boots and shoes, prospectors' outfits, etc. He Is one of n number who
have come east from the Kootonay to
buy. and lie Is of the opinion that the
completion of the Crow's Nest Railway means a tremendous amount of
general trndlng business for eastern

The International gives tiie following particulars of it fatal accident on
it he Crow's Nest Road: A French
; Canadian was at work alone in a stone
cut. Those at work near the place
heard the explosion and rushed to the
cut. They found the victim blown
about ;V) feet from the fire where he
had been inawing the dynamite, Both
Ins legs were shattered and he was injured internally, yet he was conscious,
and remained so up to the time of his
death, an half hour later.
At the Columbia House on Tuesday
night a meeting convened by the Town
Committee was held to consider the
river question. Mr. Dainard was voted
to the chair. It was resolved to write
to the Dominion Minister of Public
Works and ask for a vote of 30,000 towards dredging the Kickingborse
channel, and to ask Mr. Bostock, M.
P., to support the proposal. It was
also resolved to write to Hon. Col.
Baker, M. P. P.. to endeavor to get a
grant of 35,000 to complete the dyking
work. Messrs. Greene, Dainard and
Haggen were appointed a committee to
give effect to the resolutions.
The Prospector says that at a point
where the Crow's Nest line crosses
j the main range of the Rocky Monn-
ains, two tunnels, one 700 and the
other 200 feet in length, have been
under construction for some months,
and aro now in for a distance of nearly 100 feet. I* was thought when the
tunnels where first started that hard,
solid formation would be found, but
after running in 100 feet there is no
change, the slaty structure constantly
falling, rendering the tunnels unsafe
for workmen. It has been decided
to abandon work on the tunnel and
run a loop around that portion of tho
mountain, which will lengthen the
line nearly five miles.
