Dr. Fraser Attacks Provincial
Vancouver, March 6.—Rev. Dr.
Fraaer, pastor ol the Firat Presbyterian
church, Vancouver, created a great
sensation at a Presbyterian meeting
today by charge* against tbo judiciary
of British Columbia.
lie said: "What wc want in British
Columbia it a sell respecting judiciary.
Even- patrolmen will tell you there is
no use securing convictions, because it
will be upset by the higher bench on
a technicality. Fast women were recently released on bail pending appeal.
They did not leave the oity but returned to "their former life and conditions are now nearly aa had aa over.
It U s down right tbams that a Brit
ish bench Bhould be open to such
criticism. I was i ifonnod on excellent authority tbat during the hearing
0! an important case here the presiding judge fell asleep on the bench and
the case had to be adjourned till nit
day. There is no use mincing matters
in order to effect reform* we ahould
•trike at the very center.
Refused Entrance by B. C. Govt,
but Passed by Dr. Munro
Vancouver, March 6.—The game of
shuttlecock between the provincial
and Dominion governments with the
Hindus as the victims, saw another
round yesterday evening when fifteen
Hindus who had arrived yesterday by
the Empress of Japan were admitted
aB immigrants by Dominion Inspector
Dr. Munro.
Before tbey were allowed to land
and while still on the ship and before
th- Dominion Inspe tor had given hia
decision the new arrivals were lined
up and examined by the provincial
inspector. Tbey failed to pass the examination prescribed by the Natal act
but the provincial officer could not
prevent their landing under instructions of the Dominion inspector. Once
landed tbe constables ol the Canadian
Pacific Railway "ompany forcibly kept
the Hindus from returning to the
ship where they were ordeied by the
provincial officer. The latter was
powerless against the force of special
constables and indeed against tbe
Hindus themselves for the latter certainly do not wish to return to their
native land.
Accordingly the provincial police
arrested the entire party and took
them to jail. Upon being searched
each Hindu was found to be carrying
a hatchet.
Provincial Government Asserts
Jurisdiction Over Fisheries.
Victoria, March 6.—All canneries
and fish-packing establishments in the
Province will be compelled to take out
a Provincial licence. A bill to be
kuowo a* the Canneries Revenue Act
was introduced in the legislature by
Hon. W. J. Bowser providing tor this
and fixing the amount charged lor
each licence. A penalty clause is provided tor non-compliance.
The above decision will at once precipitate litigation, whioh will doubtless
lead to a decision of the Privy Council
fixing the jurisdiction ol tbe Province
in tbe matter. Tbe canneries have
been somewhat exercised over the complications which have arisen, but tbe
provincial government ie firm in its
resolve to have the matter settled
once and for all time.

Counters in rounding up interesting
1 ical new* items at any time are
numerous but at this time ol the year
are more so than usual. The scribe in
making his rounds yesterday had a
conversation similar to the following
with half a dozen different people.—
"Howdy do. What do you know today?" "Oh, nothing. What do you
know?" "It'll be out in the paper to
morrow. Can't you give me any news
at all!" "I'm afraid not. You might
•ay this is fine weather." "No need
to, that's aelf evident." "Or that
we've had a very nice winter."
"What's the use? Everybody know's
that." "Then make a statement to
the effect that things are rather ipiict."
"That's self patent." "Then I don't
see what 1 can do for you." "Neither
do I. You might lend me $5." Awfully sorry,but I made a deposit in the
hank a tew minutes ago." "That'll
do.   That's news.   Good morning."

French authorities say the situation is
developing into an unprecedenttd
supply of money, which, within tbe
next few month*, will have an appreciable effect in restoring proaperity.
Railway eimiugs are good. The C.
P. R. surplus was $6,260,01)0 for the
past half-year and the Canadian N r-
tbern profits are more than double for
same period of last year.
Tbe B. C. Wo. d Pulp and Paper Co.
disposed of the whole of ils first  allot
ment, 100,000 shares of preferred nock
and it now offering tbe se.-ond allotment.
There is considerable activity in
coal. Tbe B. C. Amalgamated is at
last getting down to business and has
acquired land next the property of the
Nicola Coal Co., where drilling will
start. Diamond Vale has raited the
price ot ita treaeury stock to 25 cents.
The mine is producing 60 tons a day
and arrangements are being made to
largely increase the output. Dominion
Coal paid ten per cent, dividend and
made another $1000,000 of profits
this year.
The mining outlook is good. There
never was a better demand for mining
properties than now. Mining condi
tions improve all the time. The Trail
amelter has reduced tbe rate* for treatment of silver-lead ores. W. A. Clark,
one of tbe highest authorities on copper, says this metal will soon go up to
15 can'.* again. About 7,000,000 lbs.
of copper were sold in New York tbis
week at 13s. Le Roi No. 2 has paid a
dividend ot 2c. per share. Values in
the War Eagle and Centre Star mines
are improving with depth, War Eagle
having lately shipped $40 ore. Tbe
Trail smelter has been producing 42
tons of silver-lead bullion daily, also
15 tons copper matte. The Granf-y
mine has made a new record, having
smelted 22,510 tons of ore last week,
and the output of this property for
January was 1,780,000 lb*, of copper.
Thi* stock is now earning $8 per share.
No wonder tbe Monetary Times admits
renewed interest is being taken in
Eastern Canada in tbe gieat mineral
resources of British Columbia.
Even witb the dull market copper
stocks are the favorite again. Rex
shares have risen to 25c. owing to new
ore discoveries. Charles Dickens baa
risen from <o\ to 19c; Snowetorm have
riaen to $1.60 and it is believed will
■oon be over tbe $2 mark. Dominion
Copper, B. 0. Copper, Granby, Snowstorm, Charles Dickena, Rex, all appear to be good buys (or a riae at
present price*.

We are living in an age when
competition in every form ol husi-
ne«* and every degree ol industry
if practically tbe soul of Hade ami
as auch affects every community
anil every district in Canada. Thin
ie felt not only in commercial life
in B. C. but also in the different
sections of the province the particular advantages of which are adver-
tieeil and expounded according ac
the resident* of those individual
■ectionp have energy and enterprise
in *o doing. We find that the
cities of Canada are all, more or
Ies* lieing advertised and the particular benefits that can be accrued
by thoce that live there, enlarged
upon. Publicity ii a source of expansion and "ucceBu in these day"
and there is no resBon why Revel-
ptoke, which popnessc* advantages
almost second to none, should hide
her light under a bushel and not
take every opportunity that comes
her way, of advertising her (]ualifi-
cations a* a city and a district
desirable to live in. Revektoke
has never entered upon, in an extensive manner, any scheme of advertising herself and it seems thai,
with the resources and industrial
possibilities which we pousesn, there|
is every reason that we can compete with and hold our own
against any city in thiB part of the
province. We refer principally to
our facilities for agriculture and
fruit growing, since it has been unquestionably proved and demonstrated that we possess soil and rich
lauds most suitable for fruit and
produce, land which can be easily
cultivated and from which handsome returns can be obtained from
a ready market. The Dominion
Fair will be held this year in Calgary, during the beginning of July,
and it can be easily seen that every
city which has an eye to its own
interests will take this opportunity
of advertising itself and displaying
samples of its industries and resources respectively. Revelstoke
should not lose this opportunity of
getting in and bringing herself before the Canadian public, and having a place alongside of other B.C
cities. There is now aD exhibit
booth at our disposal at this exhibition and we would urge that
the citizens get down to business
and prepare as large and representative an exhibit as possible, including mining, lumbering, industries, fishing, hunting and shooting,
and fruit growing and agriculture.
There is enough material in the
city with which] to make up a firBt
class exhibit and the only expense
would be that of transportation to
the Fair. We would call special
attention to the fruit growing industry, although July is too early
for fruit yet ni the same time,
strawberries und oilier ttiiali fruits
w;.i be available; und irees will be
in olossom from which enlarged
phuioa could be taken. We feel
thai lhe inducements to the people
to bundle this mailer are very
great, and all those who have fruit
tret:, aud   hbrtilio should endeavor

the lands round us, which if cultivated will bIiow rich profit and
while the orchards arc growing, the
city will reap the benefit of those
new comers who will live amongst
us. We would, therefore, urge tbat
the citizens do their best to arrange
an exhibit for the Dominion Fair,
where by the aid of extensive literature of local nature, the advantages of this section of the Koote-
nays can be demonstrated, and the
possibilities of money making industries held oul to nil contemplating settling iu B. C.
Apropos of the terrible tragedy
which occurred on Wednesday al
Cleveland, Ohio, In the school
when over 160 children perished in
tlie ili.n--.-i of the burning building,
il would as well (o look tn our own
institution here and consider if   we
ve done everything in our power
to prevent n contingency such as
that which ha* horrified the minds
of the whole continent As far as
we know there is no apparent reason why a fire should break out in
our school, yet no doubt the same
thing might have been said at
Cleveland, and when fires are used,
no matter in what form, there is
always the chance of attendant
outbreak, either through defects in
the heating system in other cauncs.
Fire drill is regularly practiced
among the children and we have
seen the building cleared in fiO
seconds. But, bo that as it, may,
it   is   a    totally   different   matter
when smoke and  flame are checking the egress of   the   inmates and
when the realization of danger is
evident.     We   believo that panic
would   ensue,  and   the   children
heedless   of   their   teachers would
struggle for the doors and a repetition of the Cleveland disaster follow.     In the local school the furnaces are set at either end and we
judge  that, should  a fire start in
either furnace room, if noticed in
time, the flames  would not spread
to the centre   of   the ground floor
before   the   children could be got
out.     The greatest danger lies in
the fact   that should the entrance
hall floor burn out, which is possible, since a heavy draft  would be
created up the stairways, the mass
of children coming down stairs and
converging  towards     the    centre
would fall headlong into the flames
before they could  reach the doors.
The question  of  fire   escapes has
been taken up by the School Board
and   a   sum   for this purpose has
been   included   in their estimates.
We claim, however, that an outside
metal ladder would be a dangerous
means   of   egress  in   winter time
owing to ice and snow covering it
and  making descent very hazardous.   There should be other means
adopted   to   lessen  the chances of
loss of life in  the building in case
of   fire.     The stairs would go as
quickly aB any part and the children upstairs would be caught like
rats in a trap.     While   we do not
say that the heating arrangements
under the   present   conditions are
such   as   would cause a blaze, yet
there is always the danger.     Fires
have   been   known  to   start from
practically   no   apparent    cause.
Another point is, that  there  is no
direct alarm   to   either fire hall in
the   school   building,   the nearest
boxes   being   at the   Opera House
and Lawson's corner.   This should
be looked to at unci'.     Moreover a
different   system   of   fire  sections
should be adopted.   Were an alarm
rung   in   from the school to No. 1
Firo   Hall   during   the   day,   ihe
building   would    be  gutted almost
before the brigade could he assembled and   haul   their apparatus up
the old town hill.    There is always
some one in or near   Fire Hall No.
2 day and night, and   that brigade
could get to work on   the school in
less time since they have no hill to
climb.    We would suggest that the
school be   directly connected  with
both    fire   halls,   u*   prompt   and
effective   action   in case  of   a tire
would possibly   save   the situation
We   would   like   lo see the public
interest  themselves in this matter.
Krom   such   a   tragedy   as that of
Cleveland   there  is no lesson to Iw
learned but  that   of   doing the utmost in   the power of  the authorities within whose province ilu- protection of  such institutions lies, in
order to reduce   to a  minimum tbe
chance of   a similar sorrow in mir
own city which bold* today a -i-ler

Children    Perish   in   Burning
Building—Battle for Life.
Cleveland, Ohio, .March 6—In a
fire which completely destroyed the
common school building in Collin wood,
a suliuib, today 75 io 170 childr"n lost
their l'vea. The fire "was Bta-ted by
an overheated furnace. The flame*
quickly spreai, but a panic eiiBned
when tlie building tilkd with smoke.
and the 4lt0 children attempted to
H«cape. There were but two exits ii
the building that were available. On
soon became choked with the cliildre
who madly dashed for the open air,
those who tell in the doorway were
trampled upon by those behind, anil
anon the d. airway was im passable.
The frightened and panic stricken
children turned to get out through the
windows, and any other means that
could be lound. Escape wa* cul oft
by the flames which, by this time,
'had spread throughout the rooms.
Tbe building was ol brick, yet this
did net retard the progress of the fire.
In a few minutes the lower floor fell
precipitating scores ol children to the
basement, among tbe burning ember*.
The acene about tbe building wa*
The cause of the fire, which aided
by a frantic panic, a narrow hallway
and door*, which it ie claimed by many
were made to open inward, still is a
myateiy. It was at first supposed that
it came from au overheated furnace,
or an exploded boiler in tne basement
of the school house. It ha* been established tbat there was no explosion
and the janitor ol the school, Fred
Herter, three of whose children perished, declare* tbat it could not have
come from the furnace.
Yesterday in Collinwood was comparatively warm, and Herter declare*
that he maintained fire* at a lower
rate than usual. Fearing he had not
sufficiently warmed tne building, he
was, according to his story, on hi* way
to open tbe furnace draft, when be
waa met by three little girl* running
Irom the basement; who told him there
was a fire below. These three little
girls are now being sought by tbe
police and by tbe fire commissioner*,
It is considered entirely possible by
certain member* ol tbe Collinwood
school board that they may have,
through carelessness, started the blaze
which cost tbe live* of *o many children. Approximately 400 children attended the school and were divided
into nine room*.
The school was overcrowded and
quarter* had been provided lor the
younger children in tbe attic. Strange
a* it may seem, more of the pupils escaped from this part of tbe school
house than from any other. The
children were under good discipline;
they had been practiced frequently in
the fire drill,
An investigation is being made as to
the cause of the outbreak.
Big Game Licence Fees to Be
A bill amending the Game Act of
the province will be introduced into
the legislature by Hon. F. J. Fulton,
chiel commissioner of lands and works
this week.
The principal provisions will be
those increasing the big game license
i mid another tu enable the government
to supi ly ppe.-iiiiens of the game of
British Columbia to various zoological
-orieties throughout the world which
have applied for them.
The big game license at present is
SP50.   It will le increased to $100.
Tbe provincial government has re
cently received a request from the
Berlin zoo for specimens of Rooky
Mountain sheep und goals. Specimens of game of all kinuH hava been
requested by z ological societies in
London, New York and various other
cities. Tbe ac' nas made no provision
which enables the government to
supply these and the change in the
act it designed to remedy this.
Other change* of a minor nature
will also be made. Tbe chiel cumin iaii ner has already tie power to
change the regulation* wilh regard to
close seasons lor game and it is pro)
able that these as far a* game bird*
are affected will be materially short

Panics Make Merchants.
One who travelled through a western
town the day after a tornado, say*
that he found only a very few giant
trees and a few of the etauncbeat
buildings on solidest foundations remained standing. Ouly t e strongest
tbinga bad been spared. All of the
sapling* and trees weakened by age
and rotten hearts, all of tbe weak,
flimsy temporary bnildinga had been
swept away by the tornado's terriffic
force.    ,
It wa* a aplendid illustration of the
effect on men of a great financial panic
in which only the fittest survive. Tbe
weak and superficial merchant*, those
with little capital, and without great
mental resource* and character reserve, those who bad not tought their
way up from the bottom, but were
boosted into their positions by influence or wealthy lathers, go down. Only
the giant* and the stalwarts, the men
with stamina and grit, ultimately
In good time*, when everybody ia
making money, men of ordinary ability
can do business; but only the giants
survive bard times and great bueinea*
The tornado panic which baa just
passed over the United States ha*
swept away some of the we.k men,
those who where not well-grounded and
rooted in business principle* and integrity. Many mushroom merchants
and other poor business men have
gone to the wall; but the wise men
will benefit from the lesson ol all this
