teen others are more or less injured
and fully a million dollars in property
went up in smoke. Tlle City Hull is
totally destroyed, the Columbia building adjoining is a heap of ashes anil
several smaller buildings in the vicinity are in ruins. Tlie destruction was
caused by a wild mob which held possession of the city from dark last
night until almost dawn this morning, in their frenzied endeavors to
Iind a negro eharged with assaulting a
six year old girl. It is estimated today that tlie mob was composed of not
less than 1800 men. Soldiers patrolled
the streets today. The city is now
quiet.
THE MOBS WORK.
Throughout yesterday afternoon
there were ominous mutterings which
were     greatly   more    pronounced   as
night  approached,    Tlie authorities
did everything in their power to quiet
public feeling, nevertheless, an immense crowd gathered around the jail
where Louis Peck, the alleged negro
rapist. was confined, and soon the cry
"lynch the nigger" was on every
tongue. Meantime the authorities
hud quickly removed Peck and another negro prisoner from tlie jail and
sent them to Cleveland in tlie custody
of two deputy sheriffs. The mob,
however, would not believe that thc
man had been taken away and as
night wore on tlle fury of the rioters
increased, eventually culminating in
an assault, shortly after midnight, on
thc Courthouse and later on the City
Hall. Immense charges of dynamite
were placed under the City Hall and
Comity buildings and then to complete
its work, tlie mob applied the torch.
OFFICERS ESCAPE.
At 10 o'clock this morning all the
officers who had been penned up in
tlie Cily Buildings for two hours
escaped through a rear window anil
ran for their lives. The mob was still
firing on tbe City Buildings at that
hour   and   the militia had been called
for.   One fireman, whose name could
not be learned, hud been shot, probably fatally. The mob was making
for the firemen, and us fast as lines
of   hose were   stri'iu'hed tbe hose was
cut. At 1:48 a.m. dynamite was being used ill front of thc City Buildings.
The first eharge smashed all the
windows in the building and did much
other damage. All the prisoners had
been released from the city prison.
The crowd threatened to destroy the
lily Buildings with dynamite. At
3:30 a. in. tlie mob ran away with the
automobile patrol wagon.

therefore to be taken its bright und
funny enough to create a laugb. It
hardly does that, however. The reference, of c.mrsc is to the Tupper
polioy id Imperial preferential trade.
It was a question that excited a great
deal of interest at the time of tlle last
genernl election, and was regarded so
favorably that Sir Wilfrid Laurier
deemed it necessary to proclaim him*
self an advocate of it. Accordingly he
declared from several platforms that
bis Influence as leader of the Liberal
party Bhould be thrown in favor of a
policy of preferential trade within the
Empire. The following year he went
over to London and told the Knglish
people that Canada did not want any
preference ln the liritish market, although out of the benevolence of itn
heart it was giving llrcat Britain a
preference   In   the Canadian   market,
11 was believed that the British peo'
pie were disposed to regard a policy
of mutual preference with consider
able favor, but of course this declara
tion on the part ��f the Canadian
Premier spoiled it all. it has never
been discovered why he made it, but
the general supposition is that tlie
Jubilee favors rather turned his head
and he thought to gain the applause
that, is so sweet to his vanity.
It was u complete change of policy
fi 1 the previous year, when  he   was
so earnestly endeavoring to charm the
Canadian electors into supporting him
anil his party. The Canadian people
as a rule resented tlie treachery,
whieli many believe cost the country
a substantial trade advantage, and the
Premier's organs have since found it
necessary to surround him with all
sorts of defences. Oue is that the
Knglish people never had tlle least
thought of conceding a preference to
the Colonies ami dependencies of the
Empire. Perhaps not, but it is quite
certain that such leaders of political
thought as Lord Salisbury, the Duke
of Devonshire, and Mr. Chamberlain
were disposed to regard it favorably,
and with such leading a people already
half converted or more than sympathetically inclined would have been
persuaded into accepting the policy
with enthusiasm.
lloweve.'. we need not concern ourselves about liritish opinion just now.
The fact remains that Sir Wilfrid
Laurier, in 1800, professed himself an
advocate of Imperial preferential
trade, ami in the following year
openly repudiated it. The Toronto
Ulobc,    Which    is    the    chief    Liberal
organ,   lias I n   sorely exercised over
this abondonment of principle,and has
zealously labored to excuse it. Among
its many defences is the rather Inconsequential Statement that a policy of
mutual   preference   would   mean    tlle
restoration of the corn laws, to which
tlie ESnglisb | pie would never submit,    li   is  possible The Globe means
what il says, and ill that case it Hays
something it does not understand.
There is uo question of the ohl corn
laws,    and cannot   be,      The   present
conditions arc as different as possible
from those of the forties. Thou,' laws
were for the United Kingdom; we nre
now considering an Empire that has
grown up since then, and which consists of colonics and dependencies that
aic scattered all over the face of the
earth.      Perhaps the   Toronto   organ
cannot distinguish the significance of
the changed conditions, but others
can   and   do.    A   lax   against foreign
I Islull's   may   have   been hurtful to
the United Kingdom  sixty years ago.
while il might  prove a blessing to the
Empire of today. The stupid mistake
which The Qlobe makes is in supposing   that   Ihe   I nitcd Kingdom is the
Empire, 	
The Manitoba wheat crop is turning
mil better than was expected, and already the larger portion "f it has been
safely harvested, A few wvoka ago it
was supposed ihat there would nol be
more than a quarter of a crop; ', now
looks us if there would be fully a half.

more examples of rapid BUCCC88 in
farming. Although bnt tlle growth of
a few years, Manitoba today is a
wealthy Province.
The activity of the political lenders
is of inure worth as an indication of
an early dissolution and genernl elee
tion than lire the speculations of any
number of correspondents, Throughout the East the Conservative leaders
are making preparations for an immediate campaign, and although Ministers still profess that the question of
dissolution has not yet been considered
it may be taken for granted that the
election is not far oil'. The parties
in this Province are also moving, but
unless they put a little more life into
their steps the campaign may he upon
them before they lire prepared for it.
October is still the favorite guess, and
it would probably suit the Government, who have something to gain by
making the contest a short and sharp
one; but it is possible it may gi
over to November. Later than that
would throw us into winter, and a
winter campaign in Canada is a
cruelty that ought to be avoided.

Certainly Mr. Martin has no cause
to love the Laurier (Iovernment, and
it will surprise very few to hear that
he is preparing to conduct n bpeeiul
campaign in Manitoba in the endeavor to compass Ls downfall. Mr. Martin owes one to Mr. Sifton,and he will
pay it. With the stormy petrel
screeching about his head,the Minister

A PROTEST.
The Australian Comedy Conipany.
who open lure on next Wednesday
evening in Daudet's "Sappho," won
excellent opinions on tlie Coast. In
regard to this presentation the Portland livening Telegram of July lsth.
says: "Sappho as presented by the
Australian I ly Company is certainly, in the vernacular, 'catching
on.' Each succeeding performance
sees a larger audience, ami it will not
be surprising if the Metropolitan is
not large enough to hold the audiences towards the close of the en*
gagi ment, As conservative people become   aware   that    the   play  contains
nothing "i Unliable, ihe attendance
rapidly Increases, despite the warm
w.ai her. liu- piece went splendidly
last night, and was thoroughly enjoyed, Judging by the amount of applause ami appreciation expressed.
Miss George Elliot as 'Sappho'and
Mr. Alee Cochrane as Jean' appear
to great advantage. Miss Elliot's
scene where she leaves .ban to marry
llamont In the last act was particularly impressive and all the company
did well."
Kaslo Board of Trade Ask the Lieutenant
Governor and Council Not to Incroaso Tax.
The following is tlie text of the protest made by the Kaslo Hoard of
Trade against the increase In the
mineral tax proposed liy the (Iovernment :
"IDs Honor, the Lieutenant-Governor
ami thc members of the Executive
Council of the Province of   liritisli
Columbia,
"Gentlemen,��� Yonr   memorialists,
the Kaslo Board of Trade, having had
under consideration the proposed Increase of tlie tax upon the output of
metalliferous mines which, according
to reports, bus been announced liy the
Honorable Finance Minister SS being
in contemplation, beg to submit for
your consideration the following facts:
"That the Districts in the Province
of liritisli Columbia that contain producing metalliferous mines are already
contributing more than their share to
tlie Provincial revenue. Real eBtnte,
personal property. Provincial revenue
and all other general forms of taxation fall upon them in common with
the other Districts of tlie Province and
the different forms of milling taxation
fall exclusively upon them; while on
the other hand, it cannot be shown
that the mining districts have bud the
advantage of more liberal expenditure
of Provincial funds than other districts have had.
"That the time is inopportune for
the levy of additional taxation in a
form calculated to discourage the investment of capital and the development of mining property. The mining camps are but slowly recovering
from the effects of disturbing legislation, which resulted in a very general
suspension of mining operations for a
period of nearly a year. Mining investors representing much capital have
been turned away from this   Province
uml owing to tlie Increased cost of
labor low grade mineral properties
are less sought after than formerly,
and in many eases cannot now be
worked at a profit and are awaiting
mure favorable conditions than at present exists before any development
can be done upon tbelll.
"We believe thus tlle increase ofthe
tax ti]mn the gross output of a mine
from I per cent, to 2 per cent, would
be regarded as. in many cases as absorbing all the profits; and in any
ease as an exhorbitaiit impost having
nothing corresponding to it in any of
the mining camps of tlie I'nited States
which arc our competitors and rivals
iu efforts to attract capital.
"That In view of the announced intention of the Qovernment to appoint
a commission of enquiry to investigate the working of the laws of the
Province affecting mining operations.
we believe that all changes should be
avoided, and that the proposed Increase in the tax on the product of the
mines should be referred to such commission when appointed for investigation and that all action in regard
thereto should be deferred until such
commission shall have reported thereon.
"Kaslo, B.C., '.'nth August. 1900."
Colville Indian Reservation In Washington to
bo Opened for Settlement on October 15th.
The President of the United Stales
by proclamation has opened for settlement 1,500,000 acres of rich fanning
land in the North half of thc Colville
Reservation. This reservation lies in
the north eastern part of the state of
Washington, fifty miles north west of
Spokane: one hundred and fifty miles
north east of the Capital. Olympia.
and one hundred miles cast and north
of Seattle. It borders on the Canadian
boundary, and is about thirty miles
from (Ireenwood, 11. C.
Many years ugo this land was set
apart for the once great and powerful
Siwash tribe of Indians, The tribe
haa dwindled to such a degree thut
one twentieth of the land is sufficient for their needs. Four years
ago Congress opened the lands for
mining purposes only and .since then
many well paying mines have been
operated there and numerous thriving
towns have sprung into existence.
Among these are Holster,linker Creek.
Chcsiiw and Republic, Republic is a
thriving town near tlie Boundary line
and well known as a mining camp of
great promise.
Tbe opening of the Reservation will
take place on October Ir.th and from
all accounts there will be plenty of
land for those who desire to take up
farms, etc. The Indians have each
been allotted a farm so that their
Claims are forever satisfied.
