OTTAWA, Jon. 15. - The flrst
meeting of . the railway commission was held yesterday morning. The bill providing for the
construction of branch Tines from
Theodore in Manitoba and Northwestern rtilway io unction, with
its Russel branch was not opposed. The minister of railways
caused nn amendment to be inserted providing a railway must
be in operation within five years,
""r. Galligher's bill to extend the
time for the commencement of
construction of the B. C ^Southern
Co. The proposed line from Fort
Steele tp Golden was opposed by
eastern members on the ground
that the company a r-ady received several extensions. Mr. Drink-

the cimmisi ion that the line was
required and will be built immediately.

Nelson, Jan. 17- The annual inee'.-
!ing of the Mountain Lumbermen's
{association came to a close on Saturday
night. Th* Lumbernvsn will again
assemble in this ci= y at some undecided
date next month, when the prospect*
for the coming sea3an will be better
developed ihen they are at the present
timet
The chief business transacted at Saturday's ses.ion was the consideration
of the address fcy Dr. Judson Clark
with reference to a B. C. Chamber of
Forestry, the regu'ation of the price
of lumber and the determination of the
output for the year.
The aims ami objects which Dr,
Jud on Clark to clearly set fi rth en
Friday afternoon, after c nsiderable
debate and elaboration, were feu d to
meet with the .v iews of the lumbermen
of the mountain section of the country.
A resolution was therefore pasted endorsing the formation of such a chamber
and in addition, to aid the organizing
of local branches wherever most suitable.
As to the price ef lumber, there occurred s lively deba'c. Finally it was
decided that ihere should be no lowering of the price although there was
considerable stock in hand. It was
pointed out that the lumber in stock
was lumber for which the lumbermen
had paid more per thousand ihan for
any lumber heretofore manufactured
by them. This we* due to th* high
cost of labor and supplies which had
prevailed during the past summer.
Th y recognized that the market
would be dull for many months to
come. With a good crop this year,
coupled with the high pri<03 obtained
for last year's crop, the market at u
later date would probably be as good
• s aver.
A few alterations »ere made in the

A good house greeted the beautiful
play "The Bonnie Brier Bush," on
Tuesday night. The story of Scottish
life, so pathatically told by Ian Mac-
laren, was extremely well postiayed by
the company who presented ths play.
Evidently the Scotch element was there
in force, for the gestures, accent, the
piper and the reel, all appeah d to the
audience, and many tears were
curreptiiiously wiped away as the story
of Flora Campbell flowed on and smiles
replaced the tears when the denouement
prov.-d Lord Hay tho gallant lover.
J. Palmer Collins, as Lachlan Campbell,
was splendid. He i* a fine old man and
his silent acting in that part of the play
where he arases his daughter's name
from the Bible and puts the light in the
window will not soon be forgotten by
those who saw it. The "Posty" of
Ward E. Ranselier was exceptionally
clever. Miss. Maggie McCann's
j Scottish songs were appreciated, her
vjniiering of "Loch Lomand" and
"Come   Under   My   Pladdie,"   were
]
j particularly gced.    The  rest of the
company were good nnd furnished excellent support to the principals. The
Bonnie Brier Bush will be welcomed to

ROOSEVELT   THE"   INFALLIBLE.
"P RESI DENT Roosevelts interference
•*■ with patronoge matters in the
American Navy has precipaied a goodr
sized row*, and the president is receiving
somo hot shot from his critics for the
way he over-ridc'en the lows and the
constitution in his policy of placing his
relatives and Rough} Hid.r chums in
governm nt posi'.ion*.   The Argonaut
"The incident is by no means closed.
Apparently, indeed, it is only well begun, since itjs premised 1 hat congress,
whose right of making the la» s has not
yt t been revoked by the president,   will
■  have something to a ay about it.   The
mutter hasgone far enough, however
to imp ess the country painfully   with
the treasonable fact that there are stiu
those in public life who    have   the
temerity,   not to say the scandalous
effrontery, to question Ihe fallibility of
the pr sident and to de line to accepc
his interpretations of the corothution
and statutes as having all th* 3.ir.ctity
or something more indeed than law and
gospe1.   Another painful d.-velopme»t
of thu incident is that there nre those
wnofail to recognize hefactthat since
the wor.d began no other man was ever
bo fortunate in his coll giate, social and
political friendships as President Roosevelt.   And yet it would seem that anybody with eyes in his head ought to be
able to see the stupendous and overweening merit of his gifted group.
"We have, indeed, only to note their
successes in life to prove t.e'r merit.
Has not Doctor Wood, the president's
very closest and best friend, by sheer
force of merit, wholly unassisted in any
quarter, climbed from a subordinate
place in the medical staff over thegray
heads of five hundred deserving officerg
of the army, to be head of that gieat
great branch of the national service?
Have we not seen the president's
stenographor, Cortelyou, likewise unaided excepting by his own supreme
s, pass from one cabinet post to
ther to land at lost in the seat of
xander Hamilton? Do we not find
tno president's five hundred friends of
the Rough Ridets corps fitted out with
governor-ships, marshalships, collector-
shi;j., forest rangerahips, and other
positions of responsibility and profit, all
bearing witness, of course, to their
mental and moral superiority over their
fellow-citizens? Have we {not seen in

MAIL ORDER HOUSE FRAUD.
Winnipeg, Jan. 17 -Information has
been sworn out. against G. M. Samuels,
manager of the North Western Supply
House, Winnipeg, stating that sums of
money haue been misappropriated from
customers dealing with the company.
This-company have been doing a mail
order busineesinthe city f.-r sometime
and many complaints have been made
against the nature of the business
carried on. L is:,;, id that the victims
ar- numerous, and sen a ional developments are likely to take place This
firm has lately changed its name and is
now known, according to a circular, as
the British American-Manufacturing Co
although its cheques have been dishonored. It i* believed that many
cities in the west have suffered from
this concern.
LIGHT   LUMBER  CUT.
Vancouver, Jan. 17-Three hundred
a (1 seventeen million feet of lumber
was sold last year by the coast mills ol
British (Columbia and 178,000,000 feet
1 y the mountain mills, or an aggregate
ei 4»5,065.228 feet for the entire pro-
vince\ This is a heavy falling off from
19C6. These figures have been carefully
computed by those interested in logging. Thes-3 figures are not claimed as
exact, but a* a very near approxim ate
of the fales for the year.
The silver and bronze piece* struck
by his Excellency, the Governor General and Lady Grey, were not the first
coins minted in Canada. In 1862 a
mint was established in Westminster,
but owing to a rivalry exi-ting between
that city and Victoria, the mint was
never operated after the first half
dezmcoins werestruck off. The following very interesting events in the eaily,
history of the Island and Lower Mainland, we glean from an exchange, explains why this was:
The mi it «f bygone times cime into
being in response to a demand created
by the productiveness of the Carito j
gold fields.   But the mint branch of the
Royal mint has come iii'O existence in
response to a demand created by the
productiveness of the Yukon gold fields.
But the mint of 1862 was never, put into
service.   The ten coins stamped in it
were issued wit lout full official authority.   The deadlock whi.hkept it inoperative from the moment it was completed was a result of the riv»lry between New Westminster and Victoria.
In fact the difference over the mint was
he beginning of a quarrel of which the
feelings have not passed away yet—a
qutrrel from which Victoria came out
the winner, for when the present magnificent legislative building was erected
the mainland city's hopes for recovering her place as the capital were at an
end.   At the time of the trouble about
the mint, Vancouver Island and British
ColumLu    were    sepeiate   colonies,
though under the administration of the
same Governor.   In the late fifties the
•> with of the Cariboo began to pour in-
io the coast cities.   It went principally
to San Francisco.   Tbis did not prevent
the trade of British Columbia and Vancouver Island from feeling the stimulus.
Trade became so active indeed that the
money in the country became less and
less adequate for the'needs of business.

Treasurer of themes..and advised the
