the Council was that tho soivice wac
very poor. Aid. Irvine said that from
all be could ascertain the oiti/eus were
not in favor of spending any mora
money ou the plant. After further
discussion, on the motion of Aid. McKillop the letter of tho Ccke and Gas

OUR DESPOT RAMPANT.
C/.nr Josiepb I commanded bis serf,
the Police Magistrate of Rosslund, to
report in writing why ho darod swour
iu those special constables the other
duy. The serf duly did this, saying
in part:
"About the 7th or 8th of Fobriuiry
lnit I wus waited on by the representatives of the Lo Roi und War Euglo
milling oompanies, who requested that
some wiitohmon and spuoial constables
should be sworn in and alleging that
there wero a uunibor of idle and vio-
ioub meu about Rosslund nnd that thoy
were apprehensive that tnese men
might attempt to destroy the property
of thoir respective companies, aud
that already several things had happened whbh indicated that these idle men
were more auxious to ninko trouble
than to work. A quantity of powder
had been stolon and one or two of tho
steel guys on tho Wnr Eagle smoke
stack had beeu loosened."
In consideration of these and other
reasons, tho Polioe Magistrate thought
it would bo prudent to uot as roquest-
ed,proceeding ou tho old prinoiplo that
prevention ia better than cure, and
the wutchmen wore duly sworn in.
His Imperial Higlineas, the Czar, at
the same time ooinmauded another
Beif, the Mayor of Rossland, to explain
why thnt city should take upon itself
to preservo peace and proteot property
within the limits of the corporation,
without consulting him. His Worship
replied us well aa his trembling hand
and beating heart would admit:
"There is no trouble anticipated
here between mine owners and miners
that I am reaie of. The placing of a
fow specials at tho mines was simply
a precautionary meuBuro in view of
tho fact that a large number of men
wore being laid off and they being
idle might possibly cause some danger
to property. Tho bunkers and other
independent poreons consulted, concurred in this view."
We do not know what will happen
to the Mayor for supposing that he
and the bunkers ami other business
men of Rossland had auy right to an
opinion on the subject. While His
Majesty roigns thero are to be no opinion in this Proviuoo that are uot directly licensed under his hand and
seal. On recoiving these reports, the
Czar forthwith wrote tho Mayor a letter that was intended to extinguish
him.    This is a portion of it:
"I only learned yesterday that the
city authorities assumed responsibility
for what ocenrrod at the mines. I
shall insist upon thnt responsibility
being uuderstood by the public at
largo, and hope that some sufficient
reuson can be produced for what seems
to me your most unfortunate action under tho circumstances. If tbe mine
owners had any reason to apprehend
violence being done to their property,
they should have communicated with
this Depiirtment. The same thing applies to the Oity of Rossland. If at
uuy time any municipality anticipates
any trouble which would require suoh
an unusual display of force, it would
appear to me most proper that they
should at onco notify this Department,
iu order thut we might work in harmony with them to nfford the protection to property whioh we arc bound
by the law to give."
The Polioe Magistrate was orushed
with the following:
"I think that this ciroumstance has
boon very nnfortunata indeed, and is
likely to much prejudice the administration of justice iu the Provinoe.
The point made hy you as to the expense, to my mind, is of no importance whatever; it is the duty of the
Government to protect property, without any rogard whatever to the qnes-
tion of expense. No doubt the administration of justice is committed to a
large extent to a oity when incorporated, but at all times this Department
is responsible, and no stop of suoh a
serioua nature us this should be taken
by any magistrate or any city municipality without first notifying and obtaining the advice of this Department. "
This is a big row over a few speoials,
appointed under exceptional circumstances, aud for tbe sijgle purpose of
guarding property that was exposed to
injury. So small a thing might well
bo undertaken by the city authorities,
on their own responsibility, aud without reference to the Department over
which His Imperial Majesty has presided tor tho lust two or three weeks.
But His Majesty is of another mind.
Ho delights to show his authority,
und hence his insolent lecturing of
t hoso Rosslnnd officials. The people of
that city are a poor lot if they do not
resent such insulting language.
It is now within a day of three
weeks since Mr. Martin was entrusted
with the task of forming a Government. He picked up two oolleagues
who wero nevor before in publio life,
nnd of whom the people of British
Colombia know absolutely nothing.
With himself they were sworn in, and
ovor siuco they have boon administering tho affairs of the Province, with
ns much ussnranoe ns if the Cabinet
were completed nnd it hud been nscer-
tninod that thoy onjov tho confidence
of ihe public Nothing comparable
with this has over occurred in uny
country Hint boasts of responsible government. For Premier.a poison is selected who hud neither friend nor follower in the House; he chooses as col-
leagues two others of whom nothing is
known; the Cabinet remains in nu In
complete state ; into the hands of these
three the publio interests are committed, and the Lieutenant-Governor neither insists that the Cabinet be completed nor that the peoplo shall be given
an opportunity to say whether they
havo any confidence in tho rump already formed. A muiu reason for
dismissing Mr Semliu wus because he
wns one collcnguo short; Mr. Martin
is throo short, und yet ho is permitted
to carry on the affairs of tho Govern-
meut aud without un nppoal to the
country. A grosser abuse of power
wns never known. If proper romon-
strnuco wore made to the Federal nu
thurifies, whose representative and
servant Mr. Molnnos is, it is impossible not to believe thnt Immediate stops
would bo tnkon to put an end to this
outrage.   ____m__^_^__
We aro uot surprised that Mr. Peters
should manifest some iniputienooat the
criticisms ill-iuformed newspapers
feel oollod upon to make of matters
affeotmg the C. P. R. His exposure of
the misrepresentations with rpspect
to rates into the Boundary country, in
the report of an interview published
in another ooluinn, would indicate
that tbe paperB did not know what
they were saying, or oare iu the least
whether it was t'ue or not. Peoplo
who do not build railways or operate
them are very free to make charges of
exorbitant rates, but those who have
some knowledge of tho work nre io no
snob a hurry to be unfair. In oompnr-
ison with other things in Kootenny
und Yale the freight rates are reasonable, and Mr. Peters shows very conclusively thut in regard to the C. P. R.
there is little to oomplain of.
The Vancouver World givos promise
of making a most faithful and dutiful
organ. For example: "The delegation of business men who waited on
Lieut.-Governor Moluues yesterday,
received very little satisfaction. Those,
and othere of kindred spirit, should
remember that in such a political
crisis us vie ure now passing through,
forbeuranoe is a virtue whicli must be
exeroised. " In other words, the organ
would have all concerned to understand that the affairs of this Proviuct
nre not to be conducted iu the interest
of business men, but of the politicians.
Mr. Mclnnes has engaged to establish
hia good frieud, Mr. Martin, iu office,
and business men nre requested not to
interfere. Tho commercial and industrial affairB of the Province will piob-
ably Buffet in consequence, but these
are trifling matters in comparison witb
the graticfiation of Mr. Martin's ambition.     	
At the olose of hie first year of office,
Mr. Shaugbnessy eujoyB that greatest
gratification of all Presidents, the
gratification of being able to make n
satisfactory report. It is all summed
up in the last clause: "The growth
of your gross earnings from #18,0-11,000
iu 1805, to |29,2il0,000 in 1899, notwithstanding tbe important reductions
made during that period iu the rates
for the carriage of height in the territory weBt of Luke Superior, is evidence
of the mar.olliius progress aud development taking place in Canada, and
which from all present indiontions are
likely to be maintained." It is evidence of that; but it is also evidence
of splendid management of the uffuirs
of the Canadian Pacific Company, for
whioh Mr. Shaughuessy is justly entitled to a large share of the credit.
Considering that the Executive of
the Provincial Liboral Association
have declared against party linas,
The Victoria Oolouist asks: "How can
one party run an election on party
lines?" We would recommend it to
wait and see. In the meantime it
will probably not object to be questioned in its turn. While the muss of
Conservatives and a large number of
Liberals all over the Proviuoo havo
come to regard party lines as most expedient in thu publio interest, and
while the numbers of both are still
growiug, The Oolouist is as violently
and ae unreasonably opposed ns ever.
Is that beoause party government
would destroy perBonul snpromncy in
the Legislature, to the grout disappointment of Mr.  iJniiMiiuir -
It is not necessary to havo nn Irish
ig, or an English flag, or n Scotch
flag for the proper celebration of St
Patriok's Day, or auy other day, by a
British community. A British ting is
all that is required. Tho oxenao made
by Mr. Houston's paper for Mr. Houston's neglect or disrespoot is   ohildish.

NELSON DAILY MINER, TUESDAY. MARCH id, 1900.
THIS OOMING ELECTION.
Editor Miner:
Sir,���Thu political qneBtion of the
moment seems Ul lie: Upon what lines
shall the coining Provincial elections
be held? One view, thut accepted by
tho Liberal-Coimervative convention
lately held iu Nelson, is in favor of a
division upon the recognised party
lines of Reformers against Conservatives. The other view, advocated by
The Tribune, uml enforced with all the
vigor of Mr. Houston's vooubuUry,
calls for a division on the lines of labor against cupitul. That this is the
diviSOD desired by Mr. Houston is
clear to any one who bus read the editorial columns of The Tribune for the
last few duys, and 1 shall not take up
space in quoting from those columns
iu evidence of what is apparent in
every lino of Mr. Houston's writings
on tiie   subject.
Now, in view of the fad that the
reconciliation of disputes between labor and capital is one of the greatest
ends towards which our Legislature
can bend its onergios; an end wbioh, if
accomplished, will result in a roturu
to prosperity and peaco for all olussos,
which will bring thu blessing of
abundance of work to the wugo earner,
and open up houiirtlesB fields for investment of capital, enlarge the opportunities of the merchant and artisan;
anil, in a word, accomplish the largest
part of that for which Governments
exist, namely, tbu welfare of tho people generally���in view of this fact.how
can any thinking man desire an election run on lines devised expressly to
enlarge the existing differences, and
to embitter moro intensely those who
should be working in harmony?
And yet u few thinking men do so
desire, and the reasons of some are noi
far to seek. Mr. Houston is a thinking
1:11111, and, being such, realizes clearly
that if the welfare of the country generally iB to bo tho ruling consideration
In the coming electiou, his ambition
of a seat in the House will stund no
chance of being realized. On the
other hand, if ho can, with the aid
of professional agitators, bliud the
miner3 and malingers to their own best
interests, and inflame their passions
and prejudices to an unreasoning, irreconcilable, and disastrous antagonism, ha will Btand a fair chance of being thrown out ou top in the turmoil
and upheaval that will result.
In short, tho welfare of tbe country
and the people demands a settlement
of the existing disputes, which will bo
satisfactory to all; while tho ambition
of Mr. Houston demands their continuance. It is 11 be bopod that both
parties to the present trouble, as well
as the electorate generally, will realize
the situation, and firmly deoline to be
used as tools, to their own destruction,
for fashioning Mr Houston's ambitions ends. A. NELSONITE.
Nelson, Maroh 10, 1900.
ativo. Let me give you one moro comparison I tbo first five olasH rates between KosBliiinl and ymir, a distnncc
of 00 miles via 8. F, t%. N. Kai way,
according to tariff issued Murch 10,
aie as follows: 	
"Class 1, 78i olass 2, OH; olasB !i, 68;
class 4, BO I class 15, 53.
"For similar distance 00 miles tin
construction rates which have been SO
much oriticised are ns follows:
Class 1, 78; class 8, (Id; class, 1!, P8;
class 4, 40; class 5, 86,
"Our piesent rates for same distance
over any of our lines iu Kootenay or
Boundary are us follows: Class 1, fiS;
class a, fill; olnss 8,40; class 4, 80;
class 5, 27.
"If any reasonable person will compare these figures and will recognize
the enormous expenditure |��� opening
op the West Kootenay and Boundary
Districts which this oompany have
gono to, I do not think they will agree
with some of the presB criticisms that
you refer to.''
QUIET
Continued from Hirst Pago,
O. P. R. FREIGHT RATES.
Mr. Peters Answers Some of the Criticisms Made  by Provincial Papers.
Mr. F. VV. Poters, Assistant General
Freight Agent, of the C. P. R., was
asked by The Miner yesterday if he
hud rend the criticisms by Borne of the
Boundary and Rossland papers on the
C. P. R. rates to the Bonudury District
and said, that altbongh it was not his
duty or custom to criticise press comments, be considered thorn unfair for
the reason that the faots were not
brought out. If they were known he
did not think his company would be
placed In the,light it is in many instances. "Now that you have Bpokeu
nf it," ho said, "I should be glad to
givo you some figures whioh I think
will convince any one unbiased, that
theie is no reason for tbe altaokB upon
us which havo appealed in some of
the Boundary and RoBBland press. In
the first place complaint is mnde that
tbo reduolion from what is known as
'construction rates' in effect during
tho building of thu C. & W. extension,
has not been sufficient; it 1- said that
it shonld have been double what it
was, bnt our friends do not look at
whnt ih".-, intes actually were. As a
matter of faot the so-called construction rates were lower than rntoB
which are actually in affect today on
other lilies of railway operating in
the Kootenay djatiict, nnd In wbicli
are not conBidered excessive. For instance wo hnvo nover heard the people
of Sandon or Kaslo complain that the
local rates charged by the Kaslo &
Slocan Railway, between those points,
were higher than they shonld be considering the expenses of operating railways in this country, yet those rates
are today actually in excess of the construction rates For IiibIiiuco, the rate
from Kaslo to Mctiuiggnn, 2!! miles,
third class (tbis is tho prevailing rate
on staple artioles Bhipped lcs* than carloads) is !lfl conts. The construction
rates referred to made tbe third class
for that distance :<2 cents, same class
rate Kaslo to Sandon, 40 cents. For
an equal distance tho construction tar-
Iff gavo 80 cents. Let me further Btate
that the so-called construction rates
were actually the flame scale of rates
thnt has been iu existfnoe on nil lines
operated iu the Kootenay district by
this oompany siuce its construction ;
that is between points on Naukflp &
Slocan branch, the Columbia & Kootenny brunch, nnd the Kossland branch,
aud we heard no complaints that tH3y
wore excessive. When we took ovor
the C. cfc W. branch from the contraot-
01s, we decided to make a general reduction in all our mileage rates
throughout tho Kootenay and Round-
aiy county, and the rednction between say Nelnon or Kosflland and
Greenwood, averages 40 por oont. This
chiiugo of tariffs made a reduction also on all other Kootenay branches
which leaves our rates ns compared
with those of some of the other lines
operating in this country an average of
80 per cent, lower. Surely this is
fair, specially through a distriot such
ns tho Boundary country where the
cost of construction was enormous and
the cost of operating equally  nigh.
Mention is mnde of the enormous
tralli" into that district; tin' largo accumulation of freight which existed in
November and December was simply
orders bold buck for months, in ordei
to get the benefit of railway rates as
against the enormous teaming rates
which existed. Now that that in
oleared up any one interested can find
the trafllc jh not particularly reniuunr-
