Ottawa, March 23���Sir Wilfrid
Laurier spoke for two hours, in replying to Sir Charles Tupper, yesterday
afternoon. Ho said that tbe Government does not propose by its redistribution hill to make it a gerrymander
aot. As for the Senate reform act, the

for Canada from within, and not
from without. He did not agree

Commission should have terminated,
and not adjourned. What bis Government did was to take the respousi-
bility of breaking the session of the
Commission, and to give time to the
British and Americau Government to
come to some amicable settlement.

loday to secure, if possible, the attendance of Admiral Dewey onj that
occasion. Their application waa made

Word has heen received here from
Cascade City of a most unfortunate
accident which happened to one of
the vehicles of the Columbia Stage
Company, as a result of which one
man in now lying at the Hotel Cascade with both bones of his left leg
hroken. Tho stage, in charge of Driver Rogers, left Hall's bridge, seven
miles from Cascade, where horses are
changed, late in the evening. When
about three miles flora Hall's in proceeding down a steep grade, iu pitchy
darkness, the driver in some way
lost a line. While reaching for the
brake a sudden lurch threw him out.
Then the horses started at a break
neck speed down tht steep iucline. As
they ran all but one of tbe five pas-
sengos jumped for their lives. The
oae -who stayed on the stage came out
unscathed, as the horses stopped in a
swamp at tho bottom of tbo hill.

was James Gill of Kettle Falls, who,
as he leaped, waif thrown baok bv the
rocks and two wheels passed over his

Tho Victoria Board of   Trade   Decides
In Favor of the Charter.
Viotoria, B. C. .March 22 ���After two
days of warm discussion, the resolu
tiou opposing the Corbin charter,
passed last year was rescinded by the
Victoria Board of Trade this afternoon, and ono endorsing the charter
was passed. Tho influences which led
to this result were the aid of the personal following of E. V. Bodwoll,
Corbin's solicitor, and tho many individual threats sent to merchants,here
from the Boundary district that Victoria trade would be boycotted if the
resolution was not carried. As the
opinion expressed is diametrically opposite to that expressed last year, it is
likely to have but little weight in determining a conclusion at Ottawa. It is
by no means tbe unanimous opinion of
Victoria on the question, which is opposed to the Corbin charter,but is sini
ply the product of a packed moeting
and the threatenings of a small section
of the community.
Oan They Be   Built Cheaper in   Scotland Thun in the U. S.
Glasgow, March 22.���A statement
by Charles Cramp, of Philadelphia, a
member of the well known bhip building firm, now bore, to the effect tbat
on account of lower wages ships were
built here !I0 per cent, cheaper than
in the United States, has aroused a
vigorous denial. It is slated m opposition to Mr. Cramp's views that
American workmen accomplish twice
as much as Clyele workmen iu the
same time, and three cargoes of American Bteel just received here show that
building material is cheaper in the
United States. The increased cost of
ship h����ildlng in the United States, the
Scotchmen maintain, is duo to the inordinate profits expected by the Amerioan builders, who wifh to become
millionaires in a few years. The profit to Clyde builders is set down as
not more than from three to 10 per

would be deprived of the services of
representative creditable to it not
less by reason of high character than
by skill and experience as a public
man. We are sure the general wish
thronghonl Kootenay will be that there
is no foundation whatever for the Fort
Steele rumor.
If Great Britain and France have
settled their differences in the Upper Nile region, as reported, they had
butter now move on to Newfoundland, and tuko a whack at that mix
ture of nuisance und grievance that
for gonerntions has kept our cousins of
the ancient colony iu a condition of
perpetual torment.
A feeling of uneasiness has prevailed for several weeks past, among citizens not conversant with the f.icts,
on account of reports that tne Canadian Pacific Company was discriminating ugniust the Hall Mines smelter. These reports huvo been industriously circulated,and color was giveu
them by the fact that the Canadian
Paoifio itself is engaged in the smelting business and was, therefore, a rival. If true it meant that the great
railway corporation was determined
to drive the Nelson smelter out of the
field. That would be a serious loss to
the Oity, ai tbe Bmelter is by many
degrees tbe largest and most important
industry we possess.
There will be genuine relief in the
assurance, which The Miuer ou the
best authority was able to give yesterday, that there is no truth whatever
iu these reports; leports. we regret to
havo to add, that must have been circulated with some malicious intent.
But whether lhat or innocently, the
effect was the same ; they were doing
harm to the Hull Miues Company, and
through it to the City. The injustice
to the Canadian Pacific may not bo
worth the reckoning, us that corporation is rogardod by many as a convenience for indiscriminate abuse. The
important thing is that there iB no
griovunce in connection with the smelter. It is being uccorded perfectly-
fair treatment, and more it does not
ask. It iB under capable management,
and does not foar competition with
any other similar enterprise on equal
terms. These the Railway Company
is extending to it, so far as shipping
rates aud facilities are concerned, and
as long as this condition lasts there
is nothing to complain of. If there
were less disposition to regard the

It may lio that Col. Haker intends to
resign his seat in the Legislature, as
appears to lie generally believed at Fort
Steele, hut the reason for tho step
can hardly be the oilw given by The
Prospector. That paper HayB: "His
narrow escape from defeat ut the last
election, and Ihe total defeat of the
late Turner Government has weighed
very heavily on the Colonel, and from
recent lotters received hy Tho Prospector from tho Coast, we learn that
Col. linker has, in* will resign at an
early date. Cur informant says that
his authority fur this report is that
the Colonel hai. openly stated that he
is going to resign. We are not surprised at the report. It is just what
hai been exported hero, for it is woll
known that the Colonel's ambition
received a crushing blow at the defeat of his Government"
Members of Parliament! or Legislatures do not as a rule resign because
their party may have Buffered a defeat
at tho polls. If that wero the custom Governments would have a joyous time of it. as there would be no

living by his trade, might take such

oflice uud salary. His private afTaiis
may render retirement nescessary,

Boundary People Not Very
Enthusiastic About It*
A 0on-6s]iondsnt to Tho Miner From Boss-
laud Tells of   His  Observations
in tho Boundary Oouutry.
A norrespondent at Rosilnnrt, who
Iiiih just returned from the Boundary
country, says that thu attitude of u
Uii'iil paper towards the 0. P. K. is
well understood there and is utterly
without effect 011 tho public Its
hostility is well known to ha tine
to the personal uinis and schemes of
its Amerioan owners. On the subject
of the Corbin charter he says :
"I have been through tho Boundary oouutry as far as Greenwood on
business and while I linvo seen n
great deal in outside papers, especially
in Amerioan papers about the people
being strongly ami enthusiastically in
fnvorof Corhin's charter being granted
ynu hear verv little about it there, Iu
Greenwood this is especially noticeable, where last your a delegate wus
sent to Ottawa. Of course, the people
who have interests, and particularly
in real estate, are favorable to getting
ns many railways as possible. Railways create a boom for tho time being.
but sensible people within their heatt
realize that one railway like the 0.
P. R. whioh has the interests of the
country at heart���benauso tlio C. P. R.
is peculiarly a Canadian railway eud
tho development of tne oouutry is its
interests���ia really better for it than
railways which are simply there to
get what trade there is and carry it into
its own main arterieB in another country. In a general wny lhe idea of
the more ruilways the better is a good
ono, but not always souud when the
ruilways lead awny nnd build up rival
towns in a neighboring state nt our
expense. Thore ib also another feature
thut is apt to be overlooked, t understand the 0. P. R. is fighting the Corbin oharter as creating unfair competition and for the reason thut after
building a very expensive railway
over tho buck of a mountain to give
the district railway communication,
it should be protected for a time nt
least against opposition. There is
probably a good deal of force in that
from a railway point of view, but to
my mind the most important feature
is the smelting industry. If nil the
ores or n groat part of them are to go
out of the i ouurty what have we left ?
Now, with a huge smelter at Ous-
ende, on Boundary Kails, the O. P. R.
can handle tbe ores of lhe country for
several years to come but iftlicy nre
curried away and divided up in the
United States among the diflurent
smelters, it will pie.-int our o*u
smelters from paying, t believe above
all things in a policy of smelting ores
in the country, nnd if we oan get no
reciprocal favors from the United
States, if they place an embargo on onr
lend, and in every other way (leal
with us commercially as a hostile nation, then 1 sny deal with them us
they deal with us. As I was going to
point out, economically it is a great
mistake to divide up ores for smelting,
The larger a Smelter is and the more
ore it cuu ger the more cheaply it can
operate and the better prices it can get
������the greater success the industry will
be, From this point of view ulone I
believo it would be n great mistake to
enoourage too soon more railways,
the main object of which is to carry
our ores to United States smelters.
Besides it is a mistake to suppose thai
more railways mean competition in
rates. It is not so in Winnipeg, or in
Nelson or anywhere else. It means
butter facilities perhaps, bur there are
othor considerations us well nnd the
interests of the whole of the Province
���r of a Dominion are greater than
those of any particular community
People complain of the 0. P. R. and'I

To Tho Editor of The Minor:
Sir��� Speaking of oertain publio
questions, concerning which tho average old timer seems to tuke only B tepid interest, but which has created a
decided agitation among a dozen or
so of inexperienced individuals of
Puritanic proclivities, who, having
lately urrived here from an obscure
county or two in the Province of Ontario, seem morbidly desirous of resurrecting idea and cutsonis that yearB
ago wero laid away iu the tombs of
the good old Pilgrim fathers, and of
transplanting these ideas in the town
of Nelson, and asking the Oity Council to establish laws for the compel
Bory observance of the same. It is in
refereuco to this tbat I wish to make
a few   remarks.
Thirty years ago, when the writer
was u fesitve boy of seven years, it
occurred to him that in the particular
part of Eastern Canada in whioh he
lived, a large percentage of the people
there were of that peculiar mossback-
istic, mnke-him-tako-his-medioiue-
aud-be-good persuasion, whose radical
and mis-directed efforts to coerce
or correct, a town into u strictly moral
and model one, usually hud the effect
of casting a pall over an otherwise naturally gay aud happy community. I
say, that it occurred to this festive
youngster that he had better take a
mope for himself; and to flee to a far
and distant land where he could manufacture mud pies on Sunday���and do
what he pleased with them. For aside
from compulsory methoas employed by
those fannticdisoipUnarians to instruct folks on a sure and safe route to
Paradise, and inoidentially to prohibit
the shaking of dice for cigars or beer,
I cannot forget the Bteru, dumps-producing expression of connteuanoe characteristic of these staid enforcers of
morality and propriety. I cannot, I
say, forget that appearances as well
as circumstances had much to do with
imbuing and infnsing into my young
mind the idea of making n firm and
permanent get-away. Within n year
or two afterward, or as soon as I was
big enough to step from one railroad
tie to another, I migrated westward.
The west that once was; Hut which
now alas, is west in name ouly, For,
like the North American Indian, the
pioneer is destined, seemingly, to passively submit to the machinations of
that Eastern bugaboo, who hns stealth
ily pursued him 'cross plniunnd mountain, determined ns ever   to   iiiocnlnte
him *with alleged   principles  of righteousness whether he desires or not.
But. we sometimes read of people
being driven to desperate measures;
nnd in order to olt'-stniul tha onslaughts of Ibe Sunday Observance
Societies. Ibe moral reform clubs,
etc., whose members are almost wholly
made np of und re ruited from recent
Eastern arrivals, the old-timers may be
compelled, for self-protection, to organize the "Kootenay Tenderfoot Exterminators;" a society whose creation and object needs no explanation,
but whose title should be regarded as
an omen of warning by the invaders.
And iu this connection I would say
that all who have been residents of
the Kootenay for at least five years,
and who wish to retain their foothold
and liberty, become, without further
initiation, members of tho "Kootenay
Tenderfoot Exterminators;" and
that their identity with this organization be known aud recognized by the
wearing upon the lapel of the coat of
a celluloid button, about the size of a
silver dollar, and bearing the inscription of a skull and cross bones and the
letters K. T. E.

Recent Amendments to the
Metalliferous Mines Act.
Annual Meeting of the Brandon and Golden Crown Co��� Geaeral Mining News-
The not to ninciul the Inspection of
Metalllfernna Mines Act is already in
���affect. The ohanges that hnve been
made in the act make it tho duty of
the mining inspector if he regard) the
mine to he defective, to forthwith pint
up ut the mouth of the mine, or ut
some other conspicuous place, a copy
of the notice that he considers it is defective, and shall order the same to
he remedied.
Owners of mines must give notice
to the Minister of Mines and the inspector, of any serious accident.
Section 13 of the act is repealed, nnd
iu its place is a new section, reading!
"No person shall he employed under
ground in any metalliferous mine
for more than eight hours in every 24
bubdivisiou 1 of s*ction 96 i�� amended by adding that "Not less tban TS
cubic feet of air per minute shall be
made to pass through such mine for
everv man and beast employed therein. "
Sub-lection 2 is amended to provide
that explosives must not only be
stored, but thawed in a magazine
provided for that purpose.
Other amendments provide that "All
permanent buildings for housing boilers, engines and machinery shall 1 e
erected at a distance of not less than 50
feet from the mouth of any mini.*,''
that "Slides or conductors for shafts
which are at least 100 hundred feet
deep, shall either be iron shod or all
iron" ; that "All vertical shafts of a
depth of at least 50 feet shall be pro- I
vided with a crosshead and guide,
aud such crosshead shall descend as
such shaft is sunk, so that a: no time
shall it he a greater distance from the
bottom of tlie shaft than 80 feet."
that " No stope or drift shall be carried
on in any shaft which shall have attained a depth of 2tiO feet, miles- suitable provision shall have been made for
the protection of workmen engaged
therein, hy the construction of a bulkhead of sufficient strength, or by leaving at least 16 feet of solid ground between said stope or drift and tlie workmen engaged in the bottom of such
shaft," and that "A chain ladder, 20
feet in length, shall extend from the

the   Aloha,     Aloha   fraction,   George
Hurst,  Burlington,    Greenwood,    An
archist fraction and   Banner Fraction.
The group is in the west central end of
camp lying between and adjoining tho
Anarchist   and   Sailor groups.    These
claims   have   just   heen   surveyed and
the company is making   application to
have them   crown   granted.    The   de- *
velopment has   been   principally   con-1
fined to the George   Hurst   claim   aud
is in   the   nature   of shafts and   open
cuts.   Tbe    management,    however,
intends   to   commence   work   on   the
Burlington,    where   there ia a   strong
| ledge,    thought to   he   the   Anarchist
lead, which is one of the etiongest   in
the   camp,    and   runs north   from the
Anarchist ground into the Burlington.
It is also thought that both the   Granite and Sailor ledges can be  uncovered
on the ground owned by the company.

turned from Greenwood   where   he attended   the   annual   meeting     of   the
Brandon and   Qoldan   Crown   Mining
Company. The report of the managing
director present at  the   meeting,    was
most satisfactory   in every   -(Articular.
Work is progiossing in the sinking   of
the   main   shaft   which   is   a  double
compartment   one,   4x8   feet   in     the
clear,    timbered    throughout,   and   is
now sunk to a depth of 164 feet.    Tbis
shaft will be  sunk  to a depth   of   BOO
feet and levels will he  established   at
250   and   800    feet,    where     crosscuts
will be run to tap the main   lead.    At
the 150-foot level a 05 loot crosscut was
run and at 32 teet   a drift  5(1 feet was
run in the   vein.    At a distance of   42
feet along   thi* drift   u   diugoual   up-
laise   was   made, 80  feet   in   length,
to the 100-foot level.    This upraise disclosed   a   magnificent   body of ore between   the   two  levels.    The working
force employed at the   property   averages 12 to 17 meu, including   foreman,
miners,     blacksmith     and   engineer.
The   plant   consists   of    a      50-horse
power boiler, a 80-borse power   standard Lidgerwuod hoisting engine und a
140-gallou   Kuowles   vertical   sinking
pump, together   with   a   full   complement   of   accessories, including a 400-
foot ���'.! inch wire   rope,    buckets, piping, ateam drill, etc.
The di lectors have ordered a live-
drill compressor plant complete, which
will be installed within the next
month. In the meantime the work of

The general character of the ore is
a pyrrhotite and copper pyrites in a
silicious gaugue. There is a large
quantity of ore on the dump ut present. By the time the railway reaches
Gruenwood City this mine will be on
a shipping basis and tbe directors
have every confidence in being able to
make the mine self-sustaining within

George Hodge, local manager of the
Nelson aud Vernon Telephone Co,,
has returned from a trip through the
Boundary Country where he ,vas looking after the interests of his company.
All the telephone wires strung iu
tin* Boundary country are now owned
and operated by the Nelson and Vernon Telephone Oompany, which corporation also has systems on Ihe Coasl
and iu Kootenay In order to secure
service with Spokane this concern
connects at the bonmlnry line with the
wires of the Spoknne and British Columbia Telephone Company, which
built the first line north from Sm-
kane, some three years since. The latter line consists of one wire, while the
former uses a metallic circuit through
out The activity in mining devel
opnient mid railway building this
year in the Boundary country has
resulted iu much more business than
the present telephone facilities are ad-
equnte for, and as a result some new-
hues are projected and will soon be in
course of construction.
H. W. Kent, general manager of the
Nelson and Vernon Co., with headquarters at Vancouver, is now in the
Boundary country on a tour of inspection. Iu addition to installing local exchanges at Greenwood and .Grand
Porks, the material for the first named
being now en route, the Vernon and
Nelson Co., will make improvements
all along the line from the boundary
lo Greenwood, the present terminus.
Arrangements have been made with
the Inland Telephone and Telegraph
Co., which now operates a metallic
circuit, north from Spokane, to build
38 miles of a similar copper metallic
circuit to tlie town of Russell, at the
boundary line, one and a half miles
from Cascade, where connection will
be made with the Vernon nnd Nelson
Co's, present Boundary district line.
