'
An Investigation  Is Now
Being Made.
WOULD NOT SELL OUT
Spirited Action of a Company in Financial
Straits -Live ou Their
Foreign Trade.
Washington, May 11.���The Industrial
Commission today beard tho first wit
nofis to Oo called in connection with its
inquiry Into tlio operations ot the
trusts. Tlie witness was Hon, Jus. \V.
Loo, of Pittsburg, attorney for several
Pipo Line mid oil Companies, ami formerly a Statu Betia.tOr of Pennsylvania. Mr. Leo's testimony was directed especially against tlio Standard
Oil Company. Speaking of tlie effects
of the trust upon the consumer, Mr,
Loo Baid llio tendenoy was to ini reuse
prices uutil thoy became extortionate, Thoy were organized to secure a
monopoly, and when tins was secured
by closing by rival establishments thoy
wero in a position to lix prices, winch
wore, according to his observations,
generally increased iii order to permit
dividends on watered stock.
This has boon eminently true of tho
Standard Oil Company, As uu illustration ho said Unit when tho Imperial Oil Company, in whioh the witness is interested, wont into the flel.1
iu Now York in lSllli, tlioy found tlio
Standard Oil Company solliug oil at
9)jj cents a gallon, 'file price was almost immediately reduced to ii,1., ceuts
aud hud remained thero since, lno object boiug to drive out the rival,
Tbe tunnel- prioo wus high bul tlio
iattor wns ruinously low, uud while
tlio Imperial company hud met the re-
duotiou it liud Uunu su at a luss. lio
tliouglit tliecomuetition had resulted in
a saving of fully $8,000,000 to tlio people of Uroator New i'ork. This condition of affairs existed at other competitive points. Mr. Lee expressed the
upiuiou thut the Standard Company
wus still getting rebates lrom tlio railroad eumpanies despite the law, and
ho thought this wus accomplished by
paying exorbitant prices for lubricut-
lug oil. lie estimated that the Standard Oil Company, had, within the
past 20 years absorbed about 100 independent oompauies, but thut tlie eumpanies with which lie wus connected
had refused to sell at an advance of 12
percent, in cost when they wore about
to be closed out by tbe sheriff. Tins
refusal hurt beeu diotuted lurgoly by
sentiment. Now, however, the ludo-
peudont companies wore doing a profitable business. Ho know uf several ro-
tiueries which had been purchased at
hign prices by the Standard Oil Company and tbeu had been sbut down.
He had also beard that meu hurt received u bonus to remain idle, but hud
no personal information of this. Mr,
Loe said tbe Standard Ull Company
bad mado an effort tu prevent the extension of tbe business of tlio Independent oonuanies to foreign markets
by buying up the tankage at. given
points, aud liy soiling at lower prions
than prevail even in the United
Stutes. Still tho independent companies wtrj utile tu compete abroad largely
boeuuse iii Great Britain and Germany
aud iu some other countries competition wus preserved to a greater extent
than iu tho Uuited Stutes. Iu Germany no ono was allowed to do business ut a loss. Tho profits made
abroad wero what enabled the independent companies tu make an exist
euce, as the business iu this country
nloue was uuprolituble.
Washington, Muy 11.���Mr. Leo's
testimony at the afternoon session wus
devoted to tho effect uf oil business,
Ho said tho aim pf tho business was
to get a complete monopoly of business, fixing the price as it may please
und leaving little or no profit to tho
producer.
In illustrating he said the Standard
Oil Co. hud maintained the price paid
for the crude oil at 05 ceuts por barrel
for a yoar, thut for ten years prior to
1895, the price paid bad only averaged
80 oents per bnrrel, whorens, the average cost of the production was not
less than $1.
Nothing had dona so much as destructive competition to prevent progress and fairness He would also suggest that tho capital of all oorporii-
tious except, those of publio or quasi
publio nuture should he limited to $lj-
000,1)00 He thought that something
of this kind was necessary and thnt. if
a romedy was uot found the country
would be ruined by combinations of
capital.
JONES AGAIN ARRESTED.
Revenue Collector Arrested For Cashing a Check in Spokane.
Spokane, May 11.���Trouble follows
fast in the wake of the spree which
brought erstwhile Canadian Inland
Revenue Collector W. ti. Jones to Spokane and resulted in his arrest on the
charge of embezzling $1,2*12 of tbe Canadian   Government's   funds.     Jones
was arrested again at an early hour
this morning by Officer Shooliun,
charged by 11, ]j. Wilmut with obtaining money tinder false pretenses.
His bail wus fixed ut $l,t)0tl cash or
$U.O00 surety bond.
Jones, it seems, on Friday last gave
to "Hank" Wiluiot, a well known
nianabout-towii, a check for |382 B0,
inland money revenue payable to the
Canadian Government, Junes admits
tbat he endorsed tlie chock und gave it
to Wilinot to have cashed. Wilmot endorsed il, cashed it at, a local bank,
nnd rot lined ihn coin to Junes. The
latter says that of this $282.50 ho
gave sums to Wilmut, frum time to time
to lie gambled. He says Wilnint always loHt. The Canadian also speaks
regretfully of a curtain poker game in
Whioh ho ami two olher man were the
players.    He says it ccst him $18(1.
The local bank which had cashed
the obeok sent it to Hossland, B, O, ,
for collection, tt wus protested, the
Canadian Goverumeut having stopped
pymant on seeing the name "VV. S.
Jones" endorsed on Iho cheek. The
reoeipt of tbis check in Bossland was
one of the things which slarled Junes'
bondsmen and Inland Revenue Collector Miller to Spokane iu search of
Hit! missing deputy.
_ lu a statement made by Jones to a
Spokesman-Review man at tho police
station cully this murning, where he
was beiug held while Jack Wilmut
and Jim Anderson were out nt Police
Justice l'onnnn's humo trying to have
the ami ni n I of the hail reduced, Jones
admitted his guilt in the whole trans
aotion, but said ho did nut suppose the
Government would refuse lo honor the
check.
it is understood the amount of this
check is   included   in   the   settlement
made Tuesday by Junes' friends for
the amouii' of $1,813, But "Hunk"
Wilmut wants to know who is going
to satisfy the local bunk which gave
him good money for the check. Junes
says be tines nun knuw.

A Bishop of Newfoundland Declares His

Marshall Mich. May 11.���Right
Rev. Bishop Hawley nf St. Julius,
Nfld. administered confirmation iu St.
Marys' Church today to a large cluss.
Iu un interview the Bishop said:
'Tho pure sentiment of Newfoundland is moro in favor nf annexation to
America than of confederation with
Canada. This feeling has been nccent
anted by lhe fact that the country has
been recently betrayed and drawn into
a most shameful railway, contract by a
Canadian syndicate and politicians.
"It amounts to a virtual swindling
of the country of a $i:it)00,U(IO railway
and all our coal, minerals, forest aud
agricultural lands, A desperate light
for our freedom is now imminent. The
local parliament opens today uud it is
believed that the Government will be
defeated nnd tho contract broken up.
"I do not believe there is any immediate prospect of tho settlement of
tho French shore question. The complication arises uot from any intrinsic
dilliculty in tho caso,but because politicians have always thought of it
rather ns a means of exploiting their
own popularity than of relieving the
country of the grave burden of Frenoh
aggression."

AMERICANS Dili
ii emu mm.
Say  They Offered   Liberal
Terms,
MADE   MANY   OFFERS
Contradict What the Canadian and British
Press Say Regarding Cauada
Making OoncessiouS'
Washington, May ll. ���Tho statements of the press of Lund.in and Canada respecting the reasons of the recent
failure of tbe negotiations with Canada
have occasioned much surprise in
the official world of Washington.
These statements assume that the Canadians made all the offers of such concessions, tho United Stales commissioners standing by existing conditions. The facts as understood hero uro
directly cuutrury lo that view. There
aro certain fact tending to contradict
tho statements of lhe British press
which the Associated Press is now to
make known for the first time.
Take the ipiestion of trade with Canada, for example. It is positively
known thai the Amerioans offered absolutely free trade in mineral products,
enlargement of the free list of forest
products, and important oouoeBstbns on
the duty nu lumber and must farm prelects. It is also known that tbey offered liberal terms for the adjustment of
the Behring Sea sealing question   and
offered an amicable method for the adjustment nf boundary questions.   They
yielded to Canada's views in respect
ui alien labor and tn the lako fisheries.
and offered reciprocal privileges, In-
leed, it is the opinion in well inform -
Hl circles here, ami it Is wen inuinieii,
'hut nearly every nfler of cuncession
proceeded from the side nf the Uuited
stutes, the commissioners as a rule,
declining to commit themselves to nny
distinct proposition on the foreign
topics, the Alaska boundary excepted.
In fact it is believed hero lhat tho
distinct offer   of concessions for n set-
leincnt came almost   whnlly frum the
United states Commissioners.

The unsatisfactory character of the
news service supplied Canadian newspapers by the Associated Press has long
been a subject of complaint. The
Toronto Star bus just taken up the
matter afresh, and tills two oolnmns
with specimens of dispatches which
have no earthly interest for Canadians,
It suggests concerted action by the
Press of the Dominion in tbe effort
to remedy the evil. But what can
bo done? Tho Associated Press is an
Americau enterprise. Its American
clients fur outnumber the Canadian,
uud it is natural that its service
should bo compiled in the interest
of thoso who are its chief support.
Nevertheless it is mortifying to
think that good Canadian money goes
to maintain a service that so completely ignores Canadian interests and
affairs. Whether a purely Canadian Association would receive support enough
to keep it alivo we do not know, bnt if
tho experiment wero made thero is little
doubt the Press of the Dominion would
gladly patronize it. There is no other
remedy, for it is hopeless to expect
tho Associated Press will meud its
ways to pleuse us.
There is a grievance iu counoction
with this, however, of which our Toronto contemporary has no experience,
and which is all tbe more intolerable
because of the ease with which it
might be remedied. The A. P. service
is takeu over at Montreal by the Canadian Pacific Company, and a rehash
of it. prepared for consumption in the
West. Not the least pains is taken to
include Eastern Canadian news, and
very little if any iu the selection of
A. P. dispatches which are wired off
without the slightest apparent regard
for the tastes of Westeru readers. As
mny well be guessed, a good prioe is
charged for this service. The Company could well afford to make it
much more acceptable, but all appeals
to do this are steadily ignored. Au
important and interesting sessiou of
Parliament is now ou, and although
almost withiu sound of the voices at
Ottawa the service is prepared with -
out a word of Parliamentary intelligence. The Company have the Western Press at their mercy, aud it is supposed that all Canadian newB is suppressed in the expectation of compelling them to resort to specials, in ordei
that the Company's revenues may be
swelled.
HIGHLY IMPROPER.
was Mr. LudgaP's portion nu doubt.
Mr. Lndgate says he conferred with
him as his solicitor. As ho remained
in possession, it was doubtless on the
advice of Mr. Martin, who is Attorney-General of the Pruvince that is
olaiming to own it. Discussing this
latest phase of the question. The News-
Advertiser, a paper controlled by a col-
leagne of Mr. Martin's, says it has
''every conlideuce thut the Chief Commissioner of Lands and Works will,
backed by his colleagues of the Administration, protect British Columbia's
position by whatever legal means may
be deemed advisable." The person
whose ofiieiul position imposes upon
the duty of advising us to those means
is advising the other party to the
dispute.
We repoat that thore can bo no
quostion whatever as to the impropriety of Mr. Martin's course. If not
scundalous, it is too perilously close to
it to be pleasant to the people whom
Mr. Martin us Minister Is supposed to
sarve. Whether there was impropriety
in Mr, Pooley's conduct wo do not
kuoiv ; but the whole discussion ouly
goes to show how muoh bettor it would
be if Ministers would devote themselves exclusively to the public duties
they aie paid lo perform. There should
be no such indiscriminate mixturo of
public and private interests as to involve the least suspicion of their loyalty us paid Ministers, of the people.
Mr. Martin is m receipt of four thousand dollars a yoar from the Proviuce,
with a sessional indemnity added���all
he is worth; and if not content to
givo his time iu return ho should have
ih*. manliness to resign.
Whatever misgivings thero may be us
to the gus franchise, there is no doubt
that iu his latest enterprise Dr. Doolittle will havo the hearty sympathy of
every man, woman, and child in Nelson. A bicyclo path to Five Mile
Point woultl add immensely to the
attractions of this City. This cau bo
secured through a liberal patronage of
"Romeo and Juliet" at tlio Opera
House ou Saturday night, the doctor
having arranged to buy tlio net proceeds
and devote them to that purpose. Nolson can be made the favorite tourist
resort of the Interior, und a long step
in that direction is to provide a path
for u good spin on tho bicycle.
STOCK BROKER DEAD.
London, May 11.���Mr. Henry Louis
Raphael, banker and race horse owner,
died suddenly nt'ii o'clock this morning ut Newmarket. Mr. Raphaels was
tbe leading firm in the arbitrage business dealing between London and New
York. Ho was a generous philanthropist and recently gavo $100,000 to
Guy's Hospital. Mr. Raphael owned
a largo stable of horses, and was worth
between $15,000,000 and $30,000,000.
All the American dealers on the Stock
Exchange today were in mourning on
account of his death.

SPANISH    GUNS   TO   BE   SOLD.
Several days ago The Victoria Colonist expressed tho opinion thut Attorney-General Martin ought uot to hold
a brief from Mr. Ludgate in respect to
a matter in which public interests
were iuvolved. The Victoria Times
desired to know why The Colonist
should object to Mr. Martin's course,
wheu it failed to attack Mr. Pooley for
acting ou behalf of the E. & N. Rnil-
way Company ou a certain occasion.
The Colnuist replied that it was because Mr. Pooley was not Attorney-
General. The Times rejoins that he
wus a member of tho Cabinet, aud as
President of the Council was in possession of Information which gavo him
an unfair advantage in the conduct
of the case. As to this The Colonist is
Bileut, perhups for the reason thut it
thinks it too trivial to deserve notioe.
We do uot know. The mere fact
that The Times represents Mr. Pooley
in un unfavorable light is not conclusive against him, for iu dealing with
political opponents one is uever safe
in depending ou thnt paper without
the strongest possible corroborative
evidonco. Thfre is certainly a distinction between tho AttorueyGeueral
and auy other Minister, under the circumstances referred to.
It is not a case of splitting hairs,
however. There may have been impropriety in Mr. Pooley's connection
with the suit mentioned ; there can be
no qaestion as to the impropriety of
Mr. Martin's association with Mr.
Ludgate, and his conduct is not excused by anything Mr. Pooloy or any
other persons muy have done. The
Provinco is laying claim to Deadman's
Island; Mr. Ludgate has it leased
from the Dominion, and tbe solicitor
on whoso advice ho is acting is the
official legal adviser of the Province,
tho Attorney-General. That is as unseemly as it well could bo. Mr. Ludgate and his men took forcible possession ot the Island the othor day, and
Mr. Martin was present ou tho occasion, half for Mr. Ludgate and half
for the Provinco, according to his own
testimony.    The half with the pockets

LONG IN OF
cm COUNCIL
Terms of Railway By Law
Are Discussed-
IS NEARLY SEELED NOW
Prolonged Sossion Rosults in a Practical
Agreeiueut Between Oomicil
and Oompany.
There wus �� prolonged sessiou of tlm
Oily Oouncil yesterday nfteruoou,
which lasted frora '*! p. 111. till 11 p. tn.
All nf the members worn present exoept Alderman Hillyer, Tbe ^business
ot Mm meeting was a consideration
of the streot [rail-way (by-law ami tun
Counoil resolved itself into a oommittee of tlio whole, with Alderman
Hem- in the chair, to wroHtlo with Hie
various problems that presented themselves, Tlm Oity Solicitor was prosont as was Oaptaiu Duncan ami Mr.
F, W. Poti-ra, ilm representatives of
tho railway oompany, who worn no-
oompauitd by their legal advisors
Messrs. Macilonalil & Johnson,
The Council was untioil wilh four
typo written pages of amendments
aud additions to the ohartet as suli-
niittcil by the oompany, which had
been drawn up hy tlm city solicitor.
Tlm chief aim of thesa amendments
seemed 10 bo to place the coiistriiciioii
of (hi) lino in its various details niorn
under tho control of the Oity by making it necessary to obtain the approval
of the Oity engineer in mauy instances. The various amendments
were discussed at almost interminable
loiiRth and tho by-law as drawn un
by the street railway company was
modified in several particulars to meet
the views of tho Council, 1 hough tho
document remained substanstially as
it wns. The Oouncil and representatives of tho oompany have, however,
got their differences down now to a
fairly fine point, and several compromises wero made so that next meeting should sen tho bylaw ready for
submission to the people,
One of the "exed question wus as tn
tho cost of opening up sueets and
ditohing, etc. The Olty solicitor
thought the Council would not be
wise to bind themselves to pay the half
of all such work and so it was settled
tn leuve each such case to be decided
on its own merits. It was fairly well
understood that the Olty would bear
half tho cost if they thought it was
to the advantage of the Oity to open
up a particular streot nt a particular
time. The question of the oonstruotion of tho line on ungraded streets
was ulso discussed. The Company
will have to build and keep up passable
orossiugs at the intersections of streets
and between thoso interseetious the
line will ho constructed according to
plans approved of by the City engineer.
The company will havo to obtain
the consent of the Oity beforo it can
proceed to grade, clear and ditch
hitherto unused streets.
The representatives of the company
were very anxious to be allowed to use
for their own purposes any rock and
earth they may remove in tho course
of construction, aud eventually they
were allowed, providing that in the
opinion of the City engiuoer, the material was not needed by the City at
the time the request was made.
A clause was inserted providing that
should the Oity limits bo extended,
all rules aud regulations shall f.ppl.y
to the new territory thus taken in.
The company was permitted to use
the City electric light, poles for their
wires, etc, providing they kept them
braced aud otherwise supported to the
satisfaction of the Oity Engineer.
Tho lust of the proposed amendments was a stipulation that the Company deposit |5,000 with Ihe City to ho
forfeited if any of the conditions relating to tho oonstruotion of the lines
were violated, und especially if they
failed to complete tbo lines ns stipulated. There was a great,deal of argument over this, indeed Mr. Maodonald
for the company flatly refused to agree
to it. A compromise was, however,
reached, and, within four mouths after the final passage of the bylaw, tho
company has agreed to deposit iJ-31100
with the City, which will go towards
compensating the Oity for actual
damages caused by the oompany suddenly stopping oonstruotion, leaving
the streets in it disturbed condition,
or by infractions of the rules which
will regulate such construction. The
company wish to he paid nil per ceut.
interest on the money, but the Oouncil
thought that rathet too high, and the
matter was left over for discussion.
The Council aud the representatives
of tho compuny will hold another session this afternoon at 4 o'olock when
it is expected that the bylaw will
eiuerge from the committee stage,
ready for a final reading and submission to the people. Dr. Doolittle's
coke and GaF Co.. bylaw will also be
discussed thiB afternoon if there is
time, otherwise it will be held over
until Mouriay, wheu there will be another meeting.

The Victoria Block which is situated on the corner of Bnker and Josephine streets, is partly a frame ami
partly a brick building, and is probably the best business comer in the
Oily. Tho building is in first class
OOUditi     a   new   iron    roof   having
been put on the frame portion and enjoys all modern convcnmiices in the
shape of eleotrio light, water connections, and tlm best sanitary arrangements, The stores in the building aro
all leased fur terms varying from
three to five years, and the block
livings in u monthly rental of $500.
Thus it is seen that Mr. Stocks gels
an nasursd return of 211 percent, on the
capital inevstod, whioh is a high rate
ol interest on what cannot bo considered a speculative  investment.   The
purchaser is to be oongrulnlntod at
having succeeded   iu   securing ill such
u reasonable figure a gilt, edge property like the Victoria block, which is
bound to increase in value year by
year.

Slocan City, May 11. ���(Special).���
There is a lot of assessment workbelnu
done abont here now. Not loss than
four outfits left fur Lemon and Springer creeks this morning, aid as the
snow recedes the men get to their
propertios.
There was some excitement iu town
thiH week when the owners returned
from the Centre Star property. They
havo struck the lead, out through ii
seven feet and have uot reached the opposite wall yet. They naturally feel
good over it as they believe they have
got a bitf property.
Rogers and Newman who have been
working the White Sparrow all winter
ran iuto the lead last week, and from
tho report of an old miner, havo a
big property. They deserve it, as
they have beeu crossoutting since
last August to get the load. The pump
for the Arlington mine has arrived,
tbe packer left this morniug with four
horses to break the trail so as to get
up to the mine.
Mr. Tipping who has been at work
ou the Noble Three, Sandon, all. winter, has returned to stay and look after
his miuiug interests.
Thero is some pretty good lishing
here now and Messrs. Hicks and Hil-
nian brought in some beauties last
night, and every oue who has proper
tackle appear to get them.
Al Teeter/me of.lthe owners of the
Bank of England claim returned last
night and Bays [everything is looking
well and work is going ou smoothly.
Buiuess is improving, aud would be
much better if the weather wore suitable and the suow off.

In roplv to"N. ti., Nelson, B. C.,"
The Toronto Monetary Times says :
" There have beeu some transactions
in Northern Belle Gold Mining Co.,
shares on the Toronto Mining Exchange this month. The companv is
not a now one. It was a Washington
State affair, and was floated at a niil-
liou dollars, but the parties who originally owned the stock sold most of it
out���at least that is what one Toronto
man did, and it has lain dormant
awhile. The thing has been reconstructed aud a Canadian charter obtained. Thomas Long of Toronto is
president) H. P. Dwigut, vice-president ; Henry Pellatt and others here
are at present proprietors. We are told
that thoy havo -ttf.OOU cash and (8,006
of stock in the treasury, and are waiting ami enquiring and feeling their
way as to tho best course to pursue.
They will not say at preseut what
their policy is. The location is near
the St. Elmo, and not far from the
Southern Belle, aud has just as good
a promise for the future as a dozen nr
a hundred other so-called miues���which
are only really prospects. If yon
have money that you can afford to
lose, and liko to speculate on the future of the property, it is just ��s good
a "gamble" as a score of other things.
Lots of 1,000 aud 2,000 shares were
sold here last week at 21., anil the quotation ou the Toronto Mining Exchange
is 2 J���to 2% ceuts for a dollar share."

The management of the Athabasca

The Tribune in yesterday's issue
says. "Tho first consignment of lead
bullion to leave Kootonay, since the
Pilot Bay smelter closed down, some
threo years ago, weut out ou tbe
steamer Moyio yesterday morning,"
and then goes ou to say: "The shipment is especially worthy of note since
it is the first in custom load smelting
ventures." The shipment referred to
is the eight cars of lead bullion which,
aa chronicled in The Miuer several
days ago, tho Hall Miues Co., intend
shipping east. The statomeut that this
is the first consignment of lead bullion to leave Kootenay, and also that
it is the first* iu custom lead smelting
ventures show an astounding ignorance
of the operations of Nelson's chief industry. The small blast furnace of
the Hall Mines smelter wfas altered a
little more thau a year ago, and during March autl part of April, 1808, between five and six weeks in all, a
most successful run of galena ores was
made, and considerable load bullion
shipped. About 800 tons of ore in all
was smelted, and it was all custom
ore, coming partly from the Arlington
and' other Slocan mines, and partly
from the Ainsworth Camp. It is
generally understood that it was the
success of this first venture that induced the management of the Hall
Mines to romodel the furnace, procure
new water -jackets, thus making it
completely adapted for its work. It is
probable that tho lead stack would
have started up beforo but tor tho
difficulty   of  getting   galena   oreB  iu
die C/.ar will   Make   a   Tour
Dominions in July.
St. Petersburg. May   11.���The con
dition of the famine   sufferers   in   the
eastern provinoes is appalling. Typhus
nud scurvy are   now   rampant   among
the starved inhabitants who are dying
hy scores. The inhaliUints of the Samara district are reported to be eating
grass. The Novosti savs that the
Czar will make a tour of Siberia in
July, visiting the convict prisons.
If you see it in The Miner's Special
Kootenay Number it will be true.
