After the report of committee on ere- i
dentials was received, C. Seott. Galloway, of (ireenwood, was elected president, and H. W. C. Jackson, of Rossland, was re-elected secretary. An
adjourn nient was then made to allow
the delegates an opportunity of visiting
tlie (ireenwood smelter.
Vesterday afternoon was taken up
jlf j with business relating to the mining in-
��� dustry of the interior of Britisli Colum-
^f | bia. The recommendation of the association, asking the Dominion government to bonus a lead refinery, received:
the unanimous support of the members.
The question of recommending a
railway charter to tap the Fernie coal
mining district by the Great Northern
system was fully discussed. The principal speakers in favor of the charter
were Messrs. Ross, Curtis and Bently,
and Messrs. Goodeve, Olivet and Topping against. Tlie delegates finally
passed a resolution favoring the Hill
charter by a vote of 31 to 5.
Today Mr. Ross wiill introduce ii reso-
"i lotion recommending tlie grunting of
n charter to Robert Wood and others
for a railway connecting the Columbia
and Western with the Shiiswap and
Okanagan. The proposed line will run
from the present terminus of the ('. &
W. at Midway through the rich mining
districts of  tbe   West   Fork  and   Main
Kettle river und the agricultural region
on the Okanagan lake, tapping the Shu-
swap and Okanagan railway al Vernon.
This line will prove beneficial to both
the mining camps of Boundary and
the agricultural districts along Ihe
Okanagan lake, as well as opening up
the great mining regions of the West
Fork nnd Kettle river, and also give the
people of this district more direct rail
Communication with the coast centers
of commerce.
DOG IN THE MANGER POLICY.
What would the papers that lire opposing the scheme for a competitive road
for B. C. have the government do ? Refuse to grunt the charter '.' What then ?
If, us they claim, Jim Hill's combination has already bought control of the
('row's Nest Coal company's mines, do
they think they can stop the company
from taking out Hie coal ? Or from sel- j
ling the coiil t" �� hninsoever thev please V
If the government cannot do this, then
what are they talking about? It' the
Laurier government is so shortsighted
as lo refuse to grant  a  charter  for the
Who wonl 1 lie the gainer by the proposition���the public?   If it is a question of
building   up  the  smelting  industry  of
Canada, let the government give  the I
help   needed in a legitimate way.   In
cannot be done by shutting out com pe-1 Installed in the  Mother Lode
tition in this way.   The newspapers are;
endorsing the dog In the manger policy,
as they attempt to frighten themselves
into believing that if Jim Hill brings his
' railroad into Hritish Columbia, and with
it hundreds of thousands  of  American
dollars, to develop our eoal   fields,  then
the smelting and otlier industries of tlie
province will go bust. Without doubt
l the American Smelting company is now,
and will continue to be, a  heavy  buyer
of Canadian  coal.    This  should  be  In-
couraged if anything. Tlie idea of decrying  a  business   proposition   of   this
kind   because   "it   will   build   up  the
American smelter!"  The Canadian eoal
fields are big enough for all buyers, and
a half-dozen railroads running into them
would not be too many.    What   Canada
needs is more Canadians of tlie stamp of
Jim   Hill,  and  fewer of that class of
"patriots" who do their grabbing behind
the Onion Jack. Tlie idea that the smelter trust is being "built up" by Jim Hill
with a few hundred tons of B.  C. coal
daily, is original enough to be framed.���

the driver there were four applicants,
F. 11. Lewark, D. Beath, A. Fletcher
and Alex Currie. Alex. Currie received
four votes and A. Fletcher two. liolli
appointments are satisfactory to the
members of the lire department. The
members of the council, who promised
to vote for applicants, will devote a few
days to explanations. One candidate,
who did not recsive u vote, says he had
the promise of support from three members of the council. (If course these

The inhabitants of the Okanagan are
quite anxious that thev should have a
railroad.   J. M   Robinson, one of the
prominent business men of IVachliiml,
has gone to Victoria and be intends Interviewing the government uith a view
to secure Ihe building of n road from
Pi'iichliind right through t" I'rlncetnn,
Last year the road was run out for about
nine miles toward the sixteen miles distance of  Ihe   route   lo   (lien    Robinson
mines, which are owned by a company
in which Mr. Robinson holds a large
interest
continued at once.   The mines nre ready
to ship ore and are awaiting the eom-
pletion of Ihe road, everything so far
having to be carried by pack-horses.
Work on some of these properties is
down as far as the 2(111 foot level and the
mines are showing up well.
The following was crowded out of last
week's issue of tlie Miner:
Last Saturday morning tlie 35-drill air
compressor, recently installed at the
Mother Lode mine, was started. Everything having been got in readiness, Mrs.
Keffer, wife of General Manager Keffer.
of the company, opened the steam valve
and set the big engine in motion. Later
Mr. Keffer entertained at dinner in the
mine dining hall all the employees engaged in the mechanical department.
After the good things provided had been
partaken of, a toast to the success and
prosperity of the British Columbia Copper company was heartily drunk. The
toast included as well the names of
Messrs. F. Keffer, general manager; R.
B. Hlltchens, mine superintendent, and
George D. Hrice, master mechanic, all
of whom responded. At the call of the
chairman, remarks were also made by
H. R. Kirkpatrick, district agent for tlie
James Cooper Manufacturing company,
manufacturers of the compressor: Robt.
Beughan and A, S. Shathers, erecting
engineers for the manufacturers; F.
Bachelor, erecting engineer for the
Robins Conveying Belt Company of New
York, which company is now putting in
at the mine a sampling and BOrting
plant, and the foremen of the several
branches of the mine mechanicaldeparl-
uient. Hearty cheers were then given
for the company, and the guests departed.
The compressor is the largest the
James Cooper Company has yet supplied for us-' in British Columbia It is
a cross compound condensing Corliss
valve Ingersoll-Sergeant engine. Steam
is supplied by two PHI horse-power boilers, each of 125 pounds working pressure,
and having horizontal smoke connection
and one stack. There are al present
only three air compressors of larger capacity than ihe above iu the province,
two of these being at the Black Bear
mine and the other at the ('enter Star,
in Rossland.
Oilier plant and machinery now being
installed at the Mother Lode mine includes the  largest   hoisting  engine   vol
brought into the district, an ore-sorting
plant, and additional electric light
machinery and appliances'. The hoisting engine was made by lie Jenckes
Machine Company, of Sherbrooke, Que.
Two 80 horse-power boilers will supply
the power. At present there is hut one
cage in the main shaft, hut two platform
cages, with safety clutches and shield
roof, have been purchased aud will

Tiik new members of the city council
are to be congratulated in making the
distinction, nt so early a date, between
campaign economy and practical
economy, and it way now reasonably he
presumed that the real business of
the council has commenced for tlie year.
As in tlie expenditures for the fire department, it will, we think, be found
that the other departments of the city
have been managed as economically as
possible, and the council may now,
after a couple of months spent in tlie
study of theoretical economy be depended upon to carry on the business
of the city in a practical manner, taking
advantage of cf the good legislation and
avoiding the errors of their predecessors.

Prior to last election James Dunsmuir declared that he would discharge
all the Chinese employed in his coal
mines. After being elected and made
premier of the province, he, with a
great flourish of trumpets, declared that
he had discharged all his Chinese eoal
miners. A few days ago a disastrous
explosion occurred at one of his mines,
and what do we find? That out of 04
men in this mine 20 were white, 35
were Chinese and i) Japanese. Itis perhaps under the circumstances fortunate
that there were no more white men
caught in this explosion, but if in this
mine onlv white miners had been employed, would this explosion have occurred? How is Pitnsmuir going to
reconcile his previous assertions with
the facts this accident has brought to
light?���Silvertonian.
This name of Smith Curtis, M. P. P.,
is mentioned in connection with the

better selection could be made. He is a
very able speaker.���Nelson Miner.

SATURDAY, MARCH 2. 1901.
The members of the city council have
at hist got over their attack of  economy
ami wisely decided to keep the lire department in its present state of elli-
ciency. As a rule new members of a
council COminenee their duties with the
idea that the people's money bus been
squandered by their predecessors, and
as a consequence a month or two is spent
in experimenting,   Finally they come
to the conclusion that there is very little
room for economizing, and then the
actual business of the year commences.
The fledglings In the (ireenwood council
started in with the belief that the business of the city could be done much
cheaper than heretofore. With this object in view all tlie departments of the
city came in for a close scrutiny, and
finally it was decided to economize iu
the expenditure for tlie fire department.
Many schemes were devised to make
the department more efficient and less
expensive. It was decided to do without the driver and horses, purchase
light carts and have the brigade get the
hose to fires " by hand," but unfortunately the members of the volunteer
fire department did not receive this suggestion with enthusiasm. At Monday
night's meeting the council decided that
the old system of running the lire department was as economical, taking Into
consideration efficiency, as any they
could   devise, and   the clerk   was   in-

THE   BEST   BEER   IN   TOWN    IS   MADE    BY   THE
HENRY E0WAND.
The following regarding Harry Rowand, who was killed at Denoro on the
16th inst., is taken from the Toronto
Mail and Empire:
" Henry Rowand, the news of whose
untimely death reached the city yesterday, is a son of Mrs. Rowand, 80 St.
Patrick street, and of the late Dr
Rowand of Quebec. He received his
education at the Quebec high school,
and at I.eiinoxville, P. Q, He was for
some years In the emplov of the firm of
Allan, Rae & Co. at Quebec, and later
held all honorable position   iu   tlie head
ollice of the Canadian Pacific Railway
company at Montreal. The opening of
mines in British Columbia induced him
to go to Rossland, from where a letter
was received from him dated February
7th. He was then in the best of health,
so that the news of his death came as a
crushing blow to his mother and sisters.
His excellent qualities of head and heart
endeared him to his many friends, who
will deeply regret him. Tlie body will
be brought on for interment in the
family lot at Mount Hermon cemetery
at Quebec."
NIGHT  WAS  HER  TERROR.
���' I would cough nearly all nightlong"
writes Mrs. Chas. Applegnte, of Alexandria, Iiid., "and could hardly get any
sleep I had consumption so bad that
if I had walked a block I would cough
frightfully and spit blood, but, when
all other medicines failed, three $1.00
bottles of Dr. King's New Discovery

THE RAILWAY FIGHT
The Greenwood Liberal Association Passes Resolutions.
WANT   COMPETING   LINES
Recommend    a   Separate    Judicial
District for Southern
Yale.
The following are copies of resolutions
unanimously passed at a regular meeting of the Greenwood Liberal Association, held on the 27th of February, 1901:
Whereas there has been considerable
discussion as to the advisability of granting charters to railway companies proposing to build into this province from
the United States:
And whereas some newspapers and
writers have endeavored to convey the
impression that the granting of charters
to railway companies to build such projected lines would endanger the mining
and smelting industries of this province
by diverting the supply of coal and coke
to the United States:
And whereas this association is of the
opinion that this view is entirely error-
eous, and in any event the fact that coal
and coke are at the present time being
exported from the Crow's Nest pass coal
fields out of the province by a Canadian
railway clearly shows that refusing to
grant charters for the projected railway
lines from the United States would be
no guarantee against the export of coal
and coke from this province:
And whereas the policy of refusing
railway charters would be inimicial to
the best interests of the province, and
would greatly retard and prevent its development :
Therefore the Greenwood Liberal Association desires to place itself on record
as emphatically in favor of allowing
charters to as many railways as desire
to build into this province from the
United States, due provision being made
in said charters to protect the interests
of British Columbia.
Whereas the Dominion parliament has
already appropriated a salary for an
additional county court judge for British
Columbia:
Therefore the Greenwood Liberal Association, with a view to such appointment being made, respectively request
the Legislative Assembly of the province
of British Columbia, to divide the counties of Yale and Kootenay into three
caunties, for judicial purposes, as follows:
County No. 1 to include the Golden,
Illecillewaet, Revelstoke. Trout Lake,
Lardeau and Kamloops mining divisions
and that portion of the Vernon mining
division lying north of the 50th parallel
of north latitude, all these divisions
lying along the main line of the Canadian
Pacific railway and having easy intrr-
course with one another.
County No. 2 to include Fort Steele,
Windermere, Ainsworth, Goat River,
Slocan, Slocan City, Arrow Lake, Nelson,
and Trail mining divisions; such divisions forming the southern portion of
the district of Kootenay.
County No. 3 to include the Grand
Forks, Kettle River, Osoyoos and Simi-
kameen mining divisions and that portion of the Vernon mining division lying
south of the 50th parallel of north latitude; such divisions forming the southern portion of the district, af Vale.
And in view of the rapidly increasing
population in the southern part of the
county of Yale, this association strongly
protests against any division whereby
the city of Rossland would be thrown
into the same county as the southern
portion of Yale.

this waek. Mr. Henderson is a delegate
to the meeting of tbe Associated B< ards

printers of the coast, having held
"boxes" on the Vancouver World in the
early days. He afterwards moved to
Vernon, and was one of the proprietors
of the News at that place. Mr. Henderson states that the assertions made that
the Fernie mines will not he able to
supply all the demands for coke and coal
is redicnlous, as the mines are in a position to turn out ten times the amount
of coal now being shipped, and the
amount of coke manufactured is one-
third larger than the demand.
