PROVINCIAL
PARLIAMENT
Lieut.-Governor's  Speech  at
Opening Thursday.
Victoria, Jan. 11,—The Provincial
Legislature opened tnday. Tho following are the principal sentences
of the Lieut.-Governor's speech:
It is with much gratified th n that in
meeting you again at the opening ot
another session of this parliament, I
am able to congratulate you on the
prosperity which has marked the
year just closed, and on the favorable
prospects for the period on which we
are entering. The view expressed by
me when releasing you from your
labors at the close of last session, that
the legislation you had passed would
prove beneficial to the provi.ee, has
been fulfilled, as you will learn from
the reports that my ministers will
present to you. The measures passed
ut the lust two sessions in connection
with the finances of the province have
achieved what was desired. The stability of tbe finances has been restored, revenue has increased satisfactorily
and the accounts that will be submitted you will show a substantial surplus. The credit of the province in
the London money market has been
re-established with great benefit, to
British Columbia as a field for the
profitable employment oi capital.
The changes made at your last session in tbe laws' respecting the administration of timber lands of tho crown
have led to a great extension of the
lumberingjindustry in all parts of the
province resulting in advantage to
those engaged in it and in a great
augmentation of the revenue derived
from it.
The increase in the revenue, and the
prospect of that growth being con-'
tinued, it is hoped, will enable the
government to make larger appropriations for public -vorks, desig"?d to
op«n up the country, nnd to make
easier the means of communication
with districts towards which the
attention of intending settlers is being
directed.
You will be gratilied to learn that
tbe mining industry is showing signs
of great activity throughout the
province.
There has been great activity in
railway construction during the past
year and the indications are that this
will continue Ior some time. Two
great corporations are now engaged in
building lines that will Open up rich
mineral, agricultural and timber areas
in the Siniilkameen and adjacent
districts and bring them into easy
communication with the coast and
with llie great railway systems of this
continent. II is to he hoped that the
time will soon come when I lie economic conditions ar.d the potentialities
ot traffic are such as will secure the
construction ol railways without imposing additional burdens on the
people, ur any further alienation ol
.tho public domain in the form of
grants or subsidies lu railway corporations,
The extension of local self-government and the decentralization ol
administration byoroationof municipal bodies is calculated to promote
the interests of tho "poople, nnd a
measure for further consolidation ol
tho Huniolpal Clauses Act will be
submitted tor your consideration (or
■ ihe furtherance of that object.
You will bo usked to consider
| measures for the adjustment of the
Land Act, so as to make more effective ibo laws for the administration
and settlement of the public domain
and the more rapid development of
the vast natural resources of the
Province.
Tho estimates for Ibe ensuing year
that have been submitted to von, have
been framed with due consideration
for economy, while recognizing the
necessity that exists^for the development of this great province, and
efficiency in every branch of the
administration,

MINING MATTERS
LE ROI NO. 2
Looks Well and Shares Rise.
A. S. Goodevc, broker, bus received
a cable message from London stating
thore had been sales of Le Rui Two on
the Mining Exchange yesterday for
£1 10s. 4d. The recant important
find in Le Roi Two of a large or»-
shoot on the 500-foot level, which is
yielding a large tonnage of ore of a
high grade, and the finding of the
downward continuation of the main
ore shoots have added considerably to
the Tiilne of tbe .hares of the company
in the estimation of the stock speculators, and th. belief in local stock
circles is that the Btock will go considerably higher than the present
prices.—Rosbi.axii Miner.

PROSPECTS
Diamond Fields Believed to
Exist in Canada.
New York, ,l.m 9.—"There may be
a rich Diamond field somewhere in
Canada, probably In tho province ol
Ontario," said I'r. Geo. F, Kim/., the

Sciences at 11-American Museum ol
Natural Hi-tury, Since 1830 about
'iilll small di ininnds, ranging from one
hull Ihe size ui a pea to the size of a
small hazel mil, have been found in
various parts  uf  the   United   Snilea
where they were presumably deposited
by glaciers.
Dr. Kunt explained that in an early
period in the history ol tho world two
glaciers descended over Ihe continent
of Nurib Aiiti-ilea. One oamcdirectly
south from JnmoB Bay over Lake
Superior upun which is now tbe statm
of Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin and

CORRESPONDENCE.
LORD'S DAY ALLIANCE.
Editor Maii.IU.h un
Sir,—The electors of Canada
have an opportunity just now of
petitioning the Federal Government to enact such legislation as
will adequately preserve to all
people the weekly day of rest. The
occasion is therefore opportune for
examining carefully the legislation
sought for by the Iiord'n Day
Alliance of Canada, and of calling
the electors of Uevulstoko to its
Careful consideration.
Before examining the petition, a
few preliminary remarks should he
made.
FirBt: The L. D. A. of Canada
is not a religious institution, seeking to enforce any views as to the
religious observance of the Lord's
Day. It is rather a civil organization, seeking to protect all classes
in the enjoyment of a civil right
which belongs to them as citizens
in a Christian civilization. The
Alliance can therefore secure the
sympathy and support of the
churches and Christian electors in
general by having a proud and
worthy object, and by doing a
worthy work.
Second : The object of the L. D.
A. is therefore to preserve to the
people of Canada the right to rest
and the liberty to worship. This
seems sulliciently broad and essentially worthy. It is hard to
imagine any earnest citizen opposing such an object. And the
reason it is supported by all the
Christians and so many electors is
that its object is both Bane and
humane.
Third: The need of the work
of the L. D. A. is clear. Other
nations have let go their weekly
rest day to their great loss, and
some, having learned by bitter
experience, are trying to get it
back. Let us in Canada learn
rather by clear observation than
bitter experience. The greatness
of industrial and commercial
activity has mado Berious inroads
upon our weekly reBt day. 100,000
working men in Canada are now
deprived of their weekly rest, and
100,000 more would be, but for the
work of the L. D. A.
On this continent over 3,000,000
men have no weekly rest.
Fourth : The work of the L. D.
A. in Canada has been so creditable that it is not only warmly
commended by all the Christian
churches, including the Episcopal
and Roman Catholic churches, but
also by the Trades and Labor
Councils and many of the leading
statesman. A glance at the executive will show that many of the
leading men of Canada, in church
and state, are identified with the
organization and work of the L. D.
A.
Fifth : The occasion for petition
ing the Dominion Parliament to
legislate on this matter arose
through the decisions of the
Supreme Court of Canada, and the
Judicial Committee of the Privy
Council, which leaves all provincial
legislation on this question since
Confederation either in doubt or
ultraj vires. Consequently,', a Dominion Act would remove all
doubt and protest to all the people
of Canada, rather than to any
section, tho common rights and
privileges of the weekly day of rest.
Turning now to the proposed
legislation, as set forth in the
petition, the preamble prays "that
such lt-islation be enacted at the
ensuing session of Parliament as
will adequately protect everyone in
the enjoyment of the Lord's Day,
commonly called Sunday, and prevent the doing on that day of
labor, business or work, excepting
work of necessity or mercy.-' This
simply assumes that the weekly
rest day is a heritage belonging to
every man by right, and that he
should be protected in the enjoyment of that right. This we think
will be readily conceded by all
worthy citizens.
Clause 1. simply defines the
terms used.
Clause 2.—"It shall not be law
ful for any person on the Lord's
Day to sell, or offer for sale or purchase any goods, chattels, or other
personal property, or any real
estate, or to carry on or transact
any business, or do, or employ any
other person to do, in that day any
work, business or labor, except as
herein provided. "There are few
people who would wish to abolish
Sunday observance altogether, and
throw the day open to all mercantile business and ordinary labor,
If, therefore, on national and
humanitarian grounds, same should
be stopped, then on principles of
fair play and honest competition
all should be stopped, unless mercy
and necessity speak otherwise.
Clause 3 makes such provision
for " works of necessity and
mercy," and includes any necessary work in connection with
divine worship, the selling of drugs
and medicines, the work of physicians and surgeons for the relief of
sicknesB and suffering, receiving,
transmitting and delivering of
telegraph and telephone messages,
the conveying of travellers and his
Majesty's mails, repairs and necessary work in connection with
manufacturing processes, trains in
transit with livestock or perishable
goods, etc. These exceptions are
humane, and indicate the true
spirit in the legislation sought.
Clause 4.—It shall not be lawful
for any person on that day to en
gage in any contest for gain or for
any prize or reward, or to be pre
sent thereat, or to provide, engage
in, or to be present at any perform
ance at which any fee is charged
directly or indirectly, either for
admission to such performance, or
for any privilege or service thereat.
This clause does not forbid
voluntary game6 on Sunday, or
prevent any innocent amusements
which persons may quietly and
voluntarily arrange among themselves. But it does forbid any
entrance fee being charged or any
gain being realised either directly
or indirectly through Sunday
Bports. This by some will be regarded as going too far, but there
is no more reason why a baseball
team Bhould charge at the wicket
on Sunday than that the merchant
behind the counter should openly
do business on Sunday. Many
others will regard this clause as
not going far enough, but it will at
least remove the worst features of
Sunday sport.
Clause 5 deals in the same
manner with Sunday excursions.
It does not prohibit voluntary excursions, but does prohibit anyone
from running an excursion for hire
and this would not interfere with
any one's personal liberty, but
would remove the worst features of
Sunday excursions.
Clause 6 deals in the same way
with parks and pleasure grounds.
Tbe L. D. A. does not wish to shut
up all the parks and pleasure
grounds on Sunday, but rather to
have them thrown open to the
public on that day entirely free of
charge.
Clause 7 provides against advertising ali matters prohibited in
this act.
Claim 8.—" It shall not be lawful
for any person on that day to shoot
at any target, mark, or other
object, or to use any gun or rillc
for that purpose." This clause will
be objected to strongly by certain
parties. Rut a few considerations
will help one to see how reasonable this clause is. Our Christian
civilisation has given to us the day
of rest, and stands to protect the
church and the home in the quiet
enjoyment of that right. The
Christian people of a community
ought not to have this right taken
from them by non-Christian practices. Thedetnbralizing effect of Sundays hooting, especially withrespeot
that the weekly reBt day should be
given up to such tilings. Again
the law of the land protects game
from the shot gun for months of
the year and often for whole years,
and without any change of religious
scruples or narrow mindedness,
Why then Bhould not the law of
the land protect game one day in
seven and protect the homes and
youth of our land in the great and
peaceful enjoyment of the day of
rest ?
The remaining clauses make
suitable privisions for the enforcement of the law and need not be
quoted here. The above is substantially the legislation sought,
and iB therefore worthy of careful
perBual by all electors. One adverse criticism has been made in
the press, viz: that the poorer
classes will not be able to enjoy
the pleasures that the rich enjoy in
the Lord's Day, simply because
they cannot afford private conveyances; and the inference is that
excursions, etc, should be allowed
to run. The criticism is, however,
aside from the question. The rich,
it is true, have pleasures that we
poorer people cannot afford, but
they will have Buch as long aB thev
are rich, legislation or no leg station, Sunday or no Sunday. As
long as there are these two classes
in society they can afford pleasures
that we cannot afford. Then we
must distinguish between private
pleasures and public excursions.
The law has no right to interfere
with the poor man or the rich man
in the private enjoyment of his
reBt day, but it has the right to
prohibit public excursious etc, for
either rich or poor. Again, aB was
noted above, tbe legislation sought
is to protect the working classes in
their right to the weekly rest day.
Surely the laborer should be protected in his right to rest rather
than the pleasure seeker in his
quest for pleasure, especially when
the pleasure of one takes away the
rest of the other. The more one
examines the proposed legislation
the more is he convinced that it
should be supported by the electors
of Revelstoke and tbe people of
Canada.

expenditure of $6,796.98 in repairs.
Willi all the kicks registered
against it, the fact is thus clearly
proved that the water and light
service was n splendid investment
for the city, and the thanks of the
city are due for all time to the
then Mayor, M. J. O'Brien, and the
Aldermen associated with him at
thai time, for Ihe work they did in
acquiring this valuable franchise
for ilu- city, In addition to paying its own expenses of administration, and extensive improvements,
ii handed the general fund of the
ciiyu profit of $13,867.97. During
the year extensive improvements
were also made to sidewalks and
streels, llie whole cost of which
may be suid lo have been provided
from the profits oi the water and
lighl service. Another estimate of
the value of the service may be obtained by consideration of Ihe fad

THE CITY BYLAWS.
On several occasions the City
Council have discussed llie necessity of consolidating the city bylaws
ml putting them in proper shape
for public use. Bylaws have been
passed from time lo time ever since
the city was incorporated, but ns
matters stand the public cannot
get a copy of llie bylaws nnd have
no nieiins of knowing what they
are and wnat offences and regulations are complied with or broken.
One of the lirst things the new
council should lake up is the consolidation of these bylaws, bringing
them strictly up to date, so as to
meet the growing requirements of
the city for the abatement of
nuisances and protection of llie
tax payers and of the city revenue.

A   NEW   DEPARTURE
Staples Company Opens Yards
in Territories.
The Staples Lumber Company has
opened a yard at Calgary.
The manager told tho Herald:—"We
have organised n line yard company
to engage in the retail business in
Alberta In inther an extensive way,
and have now about fifteen branches.
Our headquarters will he Calgary.
Otis Staples is the president and
principal stockholder in the new company. His intorests are largely in
British Columbia, controlling very
large timber limits In the East Kootenay dislriet. also an up-to-date biiw-
mill and thoroughly equipped logging
railroad, several locomotives and a
train of ears.
It has been Mr. Staples' idea Jlrom
the time that ho lirst engaged in the
manufacture ol lumber in this country, that the best way to serve the
consumer was to become interested in
yards in the territory that furnishes
the market. " It is our intention to
meet the demand ol the consiimorand
with that idea in view we will handle
in connection with lumber products,
lime, brick, coal and in some of the
towns wagons, carriages and agricultural implements. Wo will also buy
the product of the farmer, either his
grain, dairy product or beef, and what
he does not care to take in what we
have to sell, we will pay cash for.
This part of the business will be
handled in a wholesale way at our
Calgary headquarters, 1 have visited
all the principal towns of Alberta during the past three months, and when
I started on my trip I thought that
the chances for the lumber business
next your were very fair, but now I
know 1 bat they are good. We will
handle Ihe product of other mills as
well as that of the Staples Lumber
Company,"

CIVIC ELECTIONS
Public Meeting and Addresses,
A public meeting in connectiun
with the civic elections whs lieltl at
the Opera House lust night. There
were about 100 present. The Mayor
presided and was accompanied on the
jilatfrirm by Aid. Field, Lewis, Abrahamson, McLeod, II. Floyd, city clerk,
and L, A. Fretz, candidate lor N'o. 2
Ward,
The chairman having called on the
city clerk to read the balance sheet.
The Mayor remarked the balance
sheet was got out earlier and more
clearly arranged than hitherto bo they
could see Ior themselves the financial
position ol the city. He referred to
the fuel that all the debentures had
been placed, the last lot ut 98, which
was a good pt ice tor this class of
debentures. He pointed nut that]laet
year Ibe city expended $19,000 out ol
revenue in improvements ot the water
serviee.atid further improvements were
■effected this year on the water nnd
light system, He considered the rates
might be reduced in the future. 7]'He
then invited criticisms of the balance
sheet, but no remarks being made
thereon he said it was evident they
were satisfied with the showing in the
balance sheet.
Mr. Brown then gave the reasons
-why he was again in the Held, having
been urged to come forward for the
purpose of carrying out n sewage
system, which wits so necessary to the
city. He reviewed the work he had
-.lone during the last two years in improving the water supply, which he
was sutislicd would now meet the requirements nf the city for some years
to come. He also reviewed the improvements made in the light plant
which was now sufficient to supply
, the requirements of the city for some
time. As to the statement in the
JIah-HkhaM) that Ihe wire from the
power house to the city was not
sufficient to carry the increased current Irom the new machine, he could
assure them that while it wus not
sufficient to curry the full current
generated it was sufficient for all requirements of the city at present. He
urged a thorough survey of the city
with iron standards fixed at every
second block, to remove uncertainties
of boundaries nnd advocated an improved lire alarm system to save the
city from the present expense resulting from false alarms, lie referred tu
eleeti'iii rumors in circulation. One
was In- had spent ijilillUO in travelling
expenses. Neither he nor any alderman Lad spent 110 cents in any such
wny. He had been blamed for the
course he l"o!< in rearranging the city
work. Accidents were continually
happening nt the power house and it
appeared to him necessary to have
some one responsible, and so Mr.
Gordon wus appointed to that position.
Mr. Gordon wus now quite satisfied
with the change, and any statement
that he made the change with a view-
to firing Mr. Gordon wus untrue as he
had no such idea. Mr. Brown then
related the oiroumstanees connected
With the ii'.'cident to the Hume, and
said Mr. Gordon could not look after
that mul lie in charge of the street
works too, and that was why he was
in favor of the change, which was
working satisfactorily. He had done
his best in the interest of the city
duritif the past two y.ars, and il they
felt lie hud he asked them to support
him ut the poll.   (Cheers.)
Thu cluiirmsiii then called on Aid,
McLeod, who would be his opponent,
to address the meeting.
Aid. McLeod said he had served the
city lour years and several months,
and had voted aa he believed beat in
the interests of the city, He was in
favor of reducing the expenses of the
city and tho taxes. As to a sewage
system, that wus a matter for the ratepayers to support or turndown. The
city had been very healthy, and il they
went in lor a sewage system aud such
improvements it meant of course
heavy taxes. If elected he would do
bis beBt (or the city.   (Cheers.)
Aid, Abrahamson suid he had been
in tbe council four years, and during
tbe lust three yeais be bud been chairman of the works committee. Al
such bo bad endeavored to have the
expenditure fairly distributed over the
whole of the city. During the past
year, though they had not done much
on tbe streets, they had done a lot towards improving the sidewalks. He
did not know whether be would lie
again a candidate, as there were
others in that ward more entitled to
the position. He .poke in high terms
ol tho way in which Ur. Brown had
attended the city affairs and considered he was in a better position
than moBt people to attend to them.
(Cheers.)
Aid. Lewis said that though the
expenditure had been large the money
had been wisely spent. With the
improvements to the electric light
plant it would be placed in lirst-clnsa
condition, but it might be advisable to
put in an auxiliary steam plant to
secure a constant light throughout
the whole 365 days of the year. The
expenditure would probably be $10,-
0UO, which would only amount to an
interest charge of $.100 a year. Six
days shut down during the year would
make up that amount. Some said
the result would not warrant the
expense, but that was a mutter Ior the
ratepayers. He would again be a
candidate forWard 2, which seemed to
be a favorite ward to represent judging
from the number of candidates. He
spoke in high terms of the wny in
which Aid. Abrahamson had carried
out his duties while in the council,
and especially ns chairman of the
works committee. He bad lived in
Revelstoke for 15 years and had always worked as he thought best in the
best interests of the city. If they
approved his actions he asked them
to again support him in the present
election.   (Cheers.)
Aid. Field spoke highly of the work
Mr. Floyd had done as city clerk. The
work of the city had been reviewed
by the other speakers, bo he need not
touch on it, As his name wus "Field"
he would be in the ''field" again,
(laughter and cheers.)
The chairman said Aid. MeCurtcr
wus out of town tint night, and Aid
Foote did not intend to stand again.
He culled on other candidates to address the meeting.
L. A. Fretz said he wus n candidate
for Ward 2. He would not ask any
votes, but if elected would do his best
for the city.
J. Palmer denied the report that he
and Messrs. Trimble and McLeod, intended firing Mr. Ringer nnd putting
Mr. Gordon buck in his old position.
As to the Mayor he bud no fault to
find with Mr. Brown, who hud done
good work, but be considered it an
honor to be Mayor of the city. Mr.
Ilrown hud been Mayor for two years
nnd he considered the honors should
go round. That wus why he supported
Mr. McLeod, who was an old friend of
his. If elected he would do his best
for the city, (cheers.)
W. J. Law was c-illed on but denied
be was u candidate.
K. Tupping, who was received with
cheers, assured them lie would, if
elected, net according to bis conscience
mul if they saw fit to return him he
would do bis utmost for the advancement of Revelstoke, With him it
wus "Revelstoke, my God and my
Com.try."    (Cheers.)"
SCHOOL  TRUSTEES,
Candidates for school trustees were
then called on nnd C. F. Lindiiiurk
asked to speak lirst. The chairman
said Mr. Lindmark wus entitled to\the
thanks of the city for tbe work he did
for the schools us he got $2,0110 from
the government when overybody had
given up hope of getting it.   (Cheers.)
Mr. Lindmark reviewed Ihe growth
oi the school, with which he had been
connected since lSt-U. The government had done well by the Revelstoke
school, and when they looked at their
school here they had reason to be
proud ol the building, while, us to the
stall', its work was a credit to the city.
The department nt Victoria had upset tbe work of the school by putting
more work on it, but they were endeavoring to get it on a systematic
basis again. He hud not definitely
decided whether he would again lie a
candidate, but urged them lirst to
elect men who would take un interest
in the work, and in the next place
would agree among themselves,
(Cheers.)
Mr. Floyd, who was received with
cheers, said that, at the request of the
citizens, he hod decided to again be a
candidate lor school trustee. He
spoke highly of the work of tbe school
stall', and said the results of the entrance examinations had shown tbe
selections ol candidates hud been the
belt that Could tie made. He pointed
out the weakness of the school bad
been pushing pupils on from one class
to another on the teachers' recommendation, or for the purpose ol miking more room. The effect hid become io bad that > eastern of standard
(•laminations had been adopted,
which showed many of the pupil.
.hurt on the bock work. He recommended a final examination independent of high   school entrance for
pupils who had been in the school
four or five years, to show just what
the pupils did know and he would
advocate the trustees should keep that
object iu view. His worship had said
something about the expense of the
schools which amounted to $11,400.
The main item of expense was $8,700
for salaries, which were about the
standard for teachers throughout the
province.   (Cheers.)
It. N. Doyle was called on but did
not speak.
H. Benjamin Baid he would pledge
himself lo do the best he could in the
interest of education.
W, M. Lawrence was called on but
said be had not decided whether be,
would run or not.
The Mayor thanked them for the
orderly meeting, and courtesy accorded the speakers.
On motion of \V. A, Nettle, a hearty
vote ol thanks was accorded the retiring mayor and aldermen, and was
acknowledged by tbe Mayor on behalf
of himself nnd aldermen.
A most orderly and attentive meeting then adjourned.
P. Hooley nnd R. Anthony were
nominated Wednesday for School
school trustees.
H. Benjamin is a candidate for
school trustee.
L. A. Fretz may be a candidate for
No. 2 ward.
W. A. Foote will not be a candidate
this election.
R. N, Doyle is spoken of as a candidate for school trustee.
FORESTRY
CONVENTION
At the Forestry Convention at
Ottawa.
E. Stewart, Dominion Forestry
Superintendent, gave a review of the
work done by his department since he
took olliee. After dealing with the
great timber wealth of the country, he
suggested that in all future patents of
timbered land, a proviso should be
inserted that at least 10 per cent, of
the area conveyed should be left in
limber, that the timber growing thereon should be the property of the
patentee, but only to be cut under
the authority nnd supervision of the
Government.
Dr. Robert Bell, of the Geological
Survey, gave an interesting address on
the alarming extent of forest fires.
Mr. C. IL Reefer, of Ottawa, delivered nn addreBS on the effects of the
conservation of forests on water-power,
J.r. Lenin;.-, who has charge of the
forest tires district of British Columbia, suid thut tires started from mil-
wny brakes, from cigar-stubs thrown
from ears nnd from other sources, as
well ns from engine sparks,

ZINC ORES.
Results Promisee by Canadian
Metal Co.'s Smelters.
It is far too early to say anything,
Mr, Fernau tells the " Nelson News',''
as to the success of his undertaking.
He felt confident, of course, and was
sure there would lie much development in the zinc industry. In the
meantime he waB advantageously
placed with regard to the zinc smelters
in the United States. Of courso tho
railroads would like the long haul to
lulu or Pueblo. Hut to the mine-
owner it was a question ol price. The
United .States smelters charged
directly about $15, With a freight
rate of $10 the total direct charges of
freight and treatment for liritish
Columbia zinc ore was about $25,
Then there was the indirect charge,
Mr. Fernau here referred to the
penalties on impurities in the ore
charged by lota and other places.
There was $1 for an excess unit in
iron, another dollar for an excess unit
in lead, etc.. all of which made the
actual cost of freight and treatment
higher.
The Frank smelter will not penalise
these excess units. This is becausellr
Fernau thinks lie is in a position to
treat ore which the United States
smellers cannot or will not touch. He
did not know that he was using any
methods which were not used by the
American smelters. He knew that he
could treat ore which was in other
places penalised. The freight and
treatment charge, exclusive of the rate
attempted on the Kaslo and Slocan
Eailroad would amount to about $20
a ton at the start. This was apparently only $5 cheaper than the rate of
the American smelters, but when the
penal charges are taken into consideration Mr. Fernau was of opinion that
bis works will start in with a rate
about $10 less than the American
smelters.
It was explained that with the assistance of the separators now being
constructed at Pilot Hay the Canadian
Metal Company could buy ore of com.
pnratively low zinc percentage, or ore
containing percentages ol iron or ol
lead which would not be marketable
in tbe United States. Concentration
and separation would bring these ores
up to the grade necessary Ior treatment at Frank. In this way also the
field of the zinc industry would be
included which otherwise would lie
idle. It would not be long, milled .Mr.
Fernau. before the zinc mine owners
would yet more fully appreciate the
situation.
TRAIL SMELTER
A Great Industry.
The progress and activity at the
Trail smelter during the past year has
been more than gratifying to the
management, resulting in many improvements to the works and the
enlargement of the refinery says the
News.
Among the additions area 100-ton
Fairbanks track scale, additional
furnace charge bins of 175 tons
capacity each and one new coppw
! mace 12x180, while still another

SURVEYORS
INSTITUTE
Protest  Against  Its Alleged
Irregularities
J. A. Kirk, P, L. 8„ has filed the
following protest against the manner
in which the Provincial Surveyors
Institute has gone about its organisation:
Kevel.toke,B.C„4tb Jan., 11100-
Sydney A. Roberts Esq.,
Victoria, B. C.
Dear Sir:—
I have received your circular note
of the (ith Inst., in which you inform
me that, by order ol the " Provisional
Hoard of Management of the Corporation of Lund Surveyors in liritish
Columbia," the annual general meeting of tbe corporation will ho held on
the 9th day of January 111011; that at
this meeting the board of management
ol the corporation is to be elected by
ballot; that 1 am requested to till in
eight name, on the "voting paper"
attached to your circular and forward
the same to you; and that a copy of
said circular is being sent to all
land surveyors who were authorised to
practise as provincial land surveyors
in British Columbia, under the old
act, as well as to those who have been
authorised to practise under the
present act.
Belore entering on the subject matter of my letter 1 may slato that I, as
well as a member oi other 1 ind surveyors in the province, did not receive
authority to practise under what you
call the "old act" or the "present act."
You will, I think agree with me
that these eligible for election as
members of the hoard of management
must he members of the corporation.
If you will be good enough to look at
section 4 of the B. C. L. T. Act 1905,
you will see that membership in the
corporation is restricted to certain
specilied surveyors of the province
ivbo register as members of the corporation within six months of the
passing of the act. That time elapsed
on or about the 8th of October, 1905.
Then: is no provision for admission to
membership after that date.
A provisional board is created by
section 8 of the act which is intrusted
with "arranging" for the lirstclection.
If the provisions of the act with re
spect to elections are to be carried out
it appears to me that the duties of the
provisional board include —lirst,—
having its secretary prepare on the
first .Monday in December 1905, a
list of those entitled to vote at the
succeeding election—as required hy
section 22. Seoond—sending to each
person on said list, a list of those eligible to hold olliee as members of tho
board of management, accompanied
by a voting paper.
The circular mentioned is a request
to all win i were authorised to practise
as provincial land surveyors under the
old act, as well as to those who have
been authorised to practise under the
present act to vote, and their request
is accompanied by a voting paper.
These people are not informed that
they can legally vote by virtue of having had their names inserted on the
list required by section 22, and they
are not supplied with the names uf
those eligible for election. I received
a document the other day labeled
"oilieiul list of authorised provincial
land surveyors fyr British Columbia,"
which is not certified or signed by any
one. On the reverse side it is stamped
"Ast'g Sec'ty Corp'n B. C. Land Surveyors." It is hardly likely that this
can In- intended for the required list.
If it is so intended that fact should be
stated over the signature of the secretary—ami it should not contain—as
it does, the name, of those not actual
ly residing and practising iu the
province, because section 21 of the act
excludes all such.
Section 24 provide, that "each per'
son whose name is inaerted on the aaid
list, but no other, shall be entitled to
vote at aiich election,," and by section
29 " any vote, cast for any penon who
i, ineligible to be a member of the
board—shall be null and void."
I therefore, hereby, protest .gainst
the vote of any person whose name i,
not on a liat prepared under the pro
visions of leotion 22 of tbe sot being
counted at the election to be held on
tbe 9th Init,
No person has regittered under the
provisions of Motion i of tbe act with
in ,ii months ol the passing of the
act.
It item, plain to me for the reason
sited that the corporation is nonexistent, that there is no one elegible
for election as a member of the board
of management, that votes cast for ineligible person, are null and void; and
that the board ol examiners cannot
assume the functions of the provincial
board of a body that does not exist;
and cannot arrange for legal eleotion
of members of such a board.
I therefore, hereby, protest against
an election being held on the 9th inst,
of a board of management, and against
any person or persons arranging the
(unctions of a hoard of management
by virtue of such election for the
reason, herein before stated.
In making these protests I wish it
understood that I do not do so in any
spirit of hostility, but because I am
persuaded that the act of 1905 is unworkable. It is a hopeless jumble.
The more I study it the worse it
appear,. I sincerely truat that during
the approaching Bcssion the Legislature will give us a well digested
measure that will be of advantage to
the public and the profession.
Kindly submit this letter to your
board.   Yours truly
J. A. KIRK.
