Tbe Board Asked to Reoonsider the Resolution   of Last Year, But  an
Amendment in Moved*
Viotoria, B. 0.. Maroh 21.���Tho
Hoard of Trade had a lengthy meeting
today to discuss the matter of the Oor-
liin application now before the Dominion Parliament for a oharter for a rail-
svity from Washington State to tap the
Boundary country just being opened
bv the construction of the Crow's Nest
Pirns line und western connections on
the Canadian aide. The proceeding
opened with a motion to resoind the
action of last year against granting
the Corbin charter. This was supported hy a lengthy address from E. V.
Bodvvell, oounsel for the Corbin In.
tei-.-sb An amendment was offered
declaring against the application, and
this was still under discussion, wheu
at tl o'clock the board adjourned until tomorrow, when tbe discussion will
be resumed. The amendment states
the facts of the ease as follows:
Whereas in the opinion of this board
it is the true policy of Canada to further snch measures as will bring
about the smelting and refining of Canadian ores within the Dominion,thereby building up Canadian towns, aud
furnishing markets for Canadian agricultural products and merchandise as
well as labor for our own people;
Aud, whereas, this board has already
affirmed this principle in collection
witli tho lead smelting industry ;
And, whereas, the evident object of
the proposed Kettle River Railway is
identical with thut of the Red Monn-
tiiiu Railwny, namely, the carrying nf
cues ont of the conntrj S he smelted
ill the United States;
And, whereas, such   exportation   of
ores  lends   to   a   corresponding     im
poitation of merchandise as  is  shown
hy the trade returns of Koolcnny ;
And, whereas, the necessity for safeguarding Canadian interests in respect
to smelting is emphasized by Ihe re-
eent formation of a smelter trust in
lhe United States with a capital of

Railway is now constructing a line of

And, whoreas, tho Dominion Government has reserved the right to regulate and control freight rates and
tolls on all Canadian Pacific, lines
leased, owned or controlled, south of
the main line in British Columbia,
which power precludes all possibility
of excessive rates.
Therefore, be it resolved that this
board is of opinion that Parliament
should not sanction the construction < f
any railway from the United States
into the southern portion of British
Columbia until onr interior towns * nd
smelting and refining centres have
been firmly established and brought into close relation with the Canadian
agricultural and commercial centres

lieved that the explosions was the re-
unit of foul play great excitement followed.

Possible Considerations Of
London, March 21.���The despatch
ot Lord Cromer, British Diplomatic
Agent in Egypt, embodying the reply
of the Sirdar, (ieneral LdSH KRffftnar

the only wounded Dervishes killed by
his troops, wero those who feigned
death in order to obtain opportunities
for killing. "Whatever was done,"
he continues 'was done with all possible considerations of humanity."
The Sirdar justified the destruction

lhe ground that if the mausoleum bad
been intact and unprofaned, it would
hive become the centre of fanatical pilgrimages causing endless tron
hie. He says he himself ordered tin
demolition. Lord Cromer endorsed tin
statements of General Kitchener.

A   Heavy   Bronze   Statute Falls  and
Strikes Her.

Madame Melba  had   a narrow  escap
from serious   injury   last  night while

houor by M. H.   DeYoung.    She   was
hit on   the   head   by   a heavy  bronze
statue, which fell from u pedestal, an*
was unconscious for 15 minutes.    With
the other   singers   of the  Ellis  Opera
Oompany,   she attended the   reception
und after supper she was in  the draw
ing room.    She   took   a  seat in a coiner aud iu somo way   hit the   pedestal
overturning the  statue, which  fell on
her head.    Luckily she was seated   fur
forward in her chair   so   she  received
only a glancing blow on the back of the
head.    She was saved from serious injury by the heavy coils of her hair.   It
was   thought   she   oould   not sing   in
"The Huguenots'' tonight,   but  today
she declared   she   had fully   reoovored

Rome, March 21.���The Pope's physicians, Dr. Lapponi and Professor
Mazzoui, visited His Holiness today
and found his general health good and
the seat of tho recent operation in excellent condition. Wheu conversing
with them the Pope expressed deep
grief at the false stories circulated
about his henlth, especially the reports
about the second operation, which had
so disturbed Catholics so deeply interested in his welfare. After the visits
the physicians declared that his condition of health, all things considered,
could not be better.
The Elaborate Meteorological Station Will
be Olossd and the  Instruments
Offered For Sale.
Kingston. Jamaica, Maroh 21.���The
Government of this Island has deoided
upon the extinction of the colonist
meteorological station hitherto entertained to a somewhat, elaborate and a
great cost which the retrenchment
Hellenic* contemplates reducing to a
small grant for statistics of the Island
rainfall. All the observatories will he
closed and the instruments disposed
of to the best advantage. The United
States* has recently established a
branch bureau near Kingston. The
officers in charge have been instructed
to furnish the Government und the
publio with all the information in
their line. Under suoh circumstances
the Government has conoluded that its
own servioe might very well be rti.uo
away with and that of the United
States availed of instead. The plan
to divert the main stream of the Jamaica fruit trade from the United
States to Great Britain bas now reached a definite development. In a short
time a direct line of specially equipped
10 knot steamers will oommenoS plying between this colony and the
Mother Country nnd arrangement** are
being made locally to secure the monopoly of the fruit produce of the island outside of that immediately and

The   Admiral   ia   Vory   Pleased Willi
Great Britain's   Friendliness.
London, March 22 ���The Times pub
lishes this morning   a   letter   from   a
correspondent   in   Bermuda  who   de
scribes Rear-Admiral  Sampson's vis
there last mouth aud   gives   an   "authorized" interview with the Admiral
According to the   correspondent,    Ad-
mial   Sampson, remarking   upon    the
"Marvelous change in American opinion, "said : "Formerly England was regarded   as   the only   Europeau  power
with which   the   Unite*!   States   was
likely to  have  differences.    Now   w-
regard England as onr   best,   perhaps,
our   only   friend.      I     cannot     say
whether   this   feeling   will prove permanent   but I  hope it may.    Possibly
we   could   not   hopo   for more   than
England's  moral support, in  the firs
instance, in   any   conflict with a continental   power   but   in times of  reni
difficulty it would ripen sooner or later
into a defensive alliance. I say fiankly
in my   opinion the Uuited   Stales has
more   to  gain from such   an   alliance
than   England   has,   therefore.   I  re
,oice  uufeignedly   ut   the   change  ol
sentiment in the United States.    I am
not less gratified   that no such chang*
is not seeded  in Great Britain and  if
any   words   of   mine   can   cement   a
friendship   calculated   to   benefit  tho
whole    world   it   is   a    pleasure   to
myself nnd a duty to   my   country    to
utter them."
Santiago, March 31.���7 P- in.-There
is no truth in the statements published
iu the United Statos and cabled back
here represeutiug that the Hon. John
Sherman is dead. It is incomprehensible how these reports originated.
The American line steamer Paris,
Captain Frederick Watkina, arrived
here tbis evening before dark and it
was immediately reported that Mr.
Sherman was not ouly alive but better, resting easily and expected to recover. He will be transferred, if all
goes favorably to the United States

Berlin. March 21.���In the Reichstag
today Herr Reichter, the German
radical leader, asked the ' Government
for information on the subject of the
negotiations now progressing with
Cecil Rhodes. The Minister of Foreign Affairs in reply stated the negotiations for a railroad through German-African were still in progress,
but an agreement has been reached regarding tho laying of n telegraph line

ill which the rights aud supremacy
of German interests were fully safeguarded. The line would be construct

London, Mareh 21. ���The Madrid
correspondent of the Standard in a despatch dealing elaborately with the
plans of the Spanish Goverumeut to
ro organize the finances of tho country, says: "Even with all the contemplated reductions and a statement
of the colonial and imperial debts,
Spain will require about thirtv-five
million pounds for her future annual
expenditure and her taxation has never
yet produced more than thirty one
million pounds."
Rome, March 21.���The Opinion revives the story thnt Don Carlos, the
Spanish pretender, has secured advances of several millions from the
English and French bankers and will
soon enter Spain. The preoise date is

Washington, Maroh 21.���Chairman
Sohumran, of the Philippines Commission, telegraphed the Seoretary of
State from Manila today tbat tbe
Commission had organized without
Colonel Denby.the third civilian member who will reaoh Manila very soon.
It oame out today with more emphasis thau heretofore that the Commission expects to play a prominent
part in bringing the Filipino insurrection to a close. Iu a despatch received
a few days ago General Otis had something to say about tbe importance of
the Commission's work nnd it ii understood that he indicated very plainly
that it would have dealings with the
Filipino lenders, which wonld put an
end to hostilities in a short time.
General Otis said that he believed the
opposition to Araerioan authority
would cease in abont three weoks and
as he is a conservative man, the Administration officers areplooking forward to important developments.
That tho Philipines Commission may
have a large share in bringing about a
speedy conclusion of hostilities, is
acknowledged in official ciroles. Tbe
important admission was made today
that the Commission had full power to
deal with the insurgents nnd the impression was conveyed that that was
its special object.
Iloilo, March 21.- A battalion of
'be 18th Infantry, a rlatoon of the dth
\rtillery, and a machine gun battery
made a reconnaisnn"fl in the direction
of Mandurriao nod Senta Barbara on
i'hursday. While they were returning
the insurgents ������.Hacked the outposts
on the right and a fight followed. (Jen-
oral Miller was on the scene early aud
directed the operations from immediately behind the fighting line. He
had several narrow escapes. The
line advanced by rushes of 8000 yards
under a hot fire, pouring in deliberate volleys upon the enemy's position,
the artillery making good practice.
Hy the time the forces were within
300 yards of the enemy's final position darkness fell preventing the
charge, for which the Tennessee men
and companies of the 18th on the right
had already prepared by fixing bayonets. The retirement upon Jaro was
accomplished in good order. The engagement was brought on by the ene
my's persistent attacks upon the outpost, at Jaro bridge. Nothing oonld be
gained by forcing the enemy back further, as "it was impossible with the
limited number of troops to hold the
position. The Amerioan troops were
exhausted by fighting and having to
wade knee deep through rice fields and
sugar cane. Thers were several cases
of prostration by the heat. The only
man killed was Private Louis Biehl
of the 18th Infantry. The wounded
number '5. A bullet passed through
Private William Rovenberger'e wrist
and entered his mouth, bet-ween the
gum and tho cheek, without injuring
his head. There were other miraculous escapes as the men advanced
amid a perfect, hail of bullets. The
severity of the engagement may be
judged by the fact that the 18th regiment alone fired 02,800 rounds. It is
estimated that the insurgents with
their more than two thousand rifles
fired more than double onr total of
Private Biehl brought in Private
Daly wounded and gave warning to
hurry up some ammunition, as most
of the man were short. He then returned to the fighting line and was
struck in the chest. He fell saying
"I'm done for," and died in 10 minutes.
It is impossible to accurately estimate the inurgent losses, as the American troops converged at a given point
without, traversing the ground shot
over, but the day after the battle the
enemy could bo seen from the belfry
of the Faro chnrch carrying away their
dead. The minimum estimate of
their losses is 200 killed and 300
Instructions printed on the captured
cases of ammunition were in Ger
man, and showed tbat the cartridges
came from tho artillery depot at May-
ence. It is suspected the ammunition
and arms have been supplied to the
insurgents from German and Japanese
sources aud from the French colonies.

New York, March 21.���A Manila
despatch published in tbe Journal says
the Filipino commanding general has
been deposed for the position he took
in trying to induce Aguinaldo to

of the beheading of General Lagarda
for tbe same reason.
St. Johns, Nfld.. March 21.���Special
significance attaches to the appointment of Commodore Clifford to command the British squadron in Newfoundland wntors during the ooming
fishing season. No officer so far advanced in the British nnvv list was
ever before appointed to its command,
he being the senior of every offloer
on the British North Americau fleet,
except Admirul Fisher. His selection is regnrded as indicating n determination on the pnrt of Great Britain to euforoe a settlement of disputed
questions in this quarter by strengthening tbe squadron.

to refrain from exercising political or
territorial rights outside the frontiers
fixed by the   convention.

Seattle, Wash., March 21.���Governor John D. Brady of Alaska, arrived
hero today from Washington where
he has boon since January looking nf-
ter Alaskan legislation. Concerning
the Alaska boundary, Governor Brady
said: "Tho Canadians will surely
have a fight ou their hands if they try
timove the boundury ou the Poron-
piue as they have on Stickeen and
the Lynn Canal paRs. Do you think
that 20,000 Amerioans, every one of
them woll armed, who have gone into
a oountry and tal.cn up claims on what
has always been considered Americau
soil,will let a haudful of ' 'median police move the bouudary line at will?
This bouudary question is a serious
oue and uo one can tell how. it is going to come out. Every member of
the Commission should make a trip to
Alaska or. at least, as far west as the
mountains, for I understand that there
are members of tho Commission who
have never been that far west, "

Perfeot   harmony   is uot the   happy
condition of the Liberal camp ill Winnipeg just at present. Thut has not
been its condition for many years past,
siuce the late years of the eighties in
fuct, when ihe practices of the Local
Government, professing to be Liberal,
alienated a number of the best members of the party. There have been
friction and animosities and un-
pleasantness ever since. But the latest disturbance is quite a fresh affair.

Interior, who 18 Manitoba's representative m the Cabinet, made a -speech at
Perth, an Ontario town, in which he
declared that the tariff is a dean issue.
At least so he is reported by a local
Liberal paper, und by the chief organ
of the party, The Torouto Globe. A
leader among the old fashioned Liberals of Winnipeg, Mr. A. B, Bel hum*,
who believes that a pledge is a pledgi
and thut priuciple is higher even thai,
party, takes exception tu this statement. At a meeting of the Liberal
Association u few nights ago he made
himself responsible for a resolution declaring in effect that the tariff ia not
a dead issue, and that Mr. Sifton vtnr
uot true to Liberal principles iu saying
that it was. Uu the pretext tbat lit
may bave been misreported. the mover
of the resolution consented to bold ii
uver until the next meeting. And in
tbe ineautime there is violent Buttering iu the dovecote.
The Free Press, au able and enterprising newspaper, but under its new
management as blindly and recklessly
partisan as auy iu the Dominion,
comes to the rescue of its favorite
Minister. Mr. Bethuue is of good
fighting stock, and not without traces
of the Coveuauter of the old stirring
days; he is the last to permit himselt
to be put down by The Free Press.
And so it eon.es that there have been
Tigorous passes between them, with,
as impartial judgment is bound to decide, the advantage distinctly on tin.
side of Mr. Bethuue. Uu such au is
sue it could not be otherwise. A child
even, by quotiug the Liberal platform
of 1HU-1, promulgated at that celebrated
t'ttawa Convention, would present a
nut which neither The Free Press
nor Mr. Sifton could crack. But Mr.
Bethuue is not a child, aud he not ouly
quotes but drives home. The platform declares "that the existing tar-
ilf, fouuded upou an unsound priuci
pie, * * * has developed monopolies, trusts, and combinations," aud
further that "any tariff changes based
upou that priuciple (protection) must
fail to afford any substantial relief
from the burdeus under which tin-
country labors."
It is as easy to jump over the moon
as to get over that, and notwithstanding that ancient tradition of the cow
we doubt if any earthly thine has ever
yet jumped over the moon. At the
time the platform wus laid down the
Conservatives were tinkering with the
tariff, adjustiug here, lopping off dead
branches there, aud sealiug dowu
neuerally. This did not satisfy the
Convention, which declared that as
long as the principle of protection was
recognised the thing was evil. The
Liberals have siuce come in and they,
too, have tinkered and adjusted aud
scaled dowu, but the foundation priuciple of protection has been preserved. To say uuw that the tariff is
a dead issue : that it has beeu reformed
as much as it will be or as much as is
necessary is to repudiate the Liberal
principle of lsnt and to commit the
entire Liberal party to an act of rank
stultification. There are members of
the party whose political consciences
impel them to protest against this.
But alas and alack, what a minority
t hey are I
vicinity is not a
nieridaii, hut is largely a matter of
Imagination, pending agreement under treaty. The American Secretary
of State,lately returned a�� Ambassador
at St. James's, is not disturbed by the j
dispatch sent in by the Alaska Governor, and there is not the leust probability of mlsuderstanding or frictiou
between the two Governments.

"What does it matter," asks The
Toronto Globe, jeferring to the Seuate
resolution in the Ontario Legislature.
"whether Mr. Hardy's motion was
suggested by someone else or not?" It
matters a great deal, if the spontaneous act of Mr. Hardy, it might be
taken to mean thnt there is profound
dissatisfaction with the Senate
throughout that Proviuce. But wheu
suggested by someone else, as no doubt
it was, it means that Mr. Hardy

coming to the Kootenay If there are
any who can place the Welshmen or
the female domestics they would do
well to ".let, Mr. Johnstone know or

To The Editor of The Nelson Miller:
Sir���Will you allow mo space to
thank "Citizen of the World" for his
Tory able and sensible letter in to
day's Miner. I would point out that
when East Baker stroet was tlrat occupied by the individuals whose presence is so offensive to some of the ox
tra pious, it was not in the "Heart of
the City" but quite out of the way;
whence it appears that whatever
point the houses may lie removed to,
is likely in a vury few years to become the "Heart (if the City" again,
when all this trouble will be repeated.

Charges of Unfair Treatment
Prove Unfounded.
The Smelter Has Been Keoeiving its Fair
Share of  Ore���General Mining News.
Se-venil Kootenay papers lmvn, of
lulu been nreusiiiK the OttnadlfU) l'a-
eiiin Railway of doing nil it oan to injure the Hull Mines Smeller nod building up the bnaineHB of the Trull Smelter ul the expense of the NeNon enterprise. A sample of the remarks of tin
puuers is the following from a recent
number of the Rossland Miner; "It
was feared by niiiny. when the 0 P.
K.   embarked in the smelting business
tbat the outcome would   he tlie   estuli-
lisbment of a monopoly on its pnrt,
and it now seems certain that tbis apprehension was well grounded, It is
uow more than probable that the Hall
Mines smelter will be bairassed aud
persecuted and its efforts to secure ore
so blocked thnt it will ultimately be
compelled to shut I'lWii. Its only hope
is evidently to secuie what ores it
oan from its own mines, aud be content to be operated to that limited extent."
In order to ascertain tbe true stale
of affairs The Miner has looked thoroughly into the matter. The best
proof that the Hall Mines Smelter is
not beiug uufairly treated is the fact
that it is gettiug its full shure of the
output of the miues of the distiict.
The company itself makes uo complaint aud until it does the papers of
the country should uot be so ready tn
tnke up the cudgels in its behalf. The
smelter situation may he taken as an
excuse for abusing the C. V. K. but
such abuse does tlie Hall Mines Smelter a great deal of harm by spreading
the impresssion iu the country thut
there is uo use in endeavoring to make
rates with it as the C, P. R. has the
upper baud. As far as can be ascertained the Canadian Pacific has ns yet
made nn discrimination in favor of the
Trail Smelter to the detriment of
the smelter here. If it hns the Hall
Mines has suffered to no appreciable
extent as the shipment of ores lo Nelson has been all the company has ux-
Regarding Rosslaud ores, it is well
known that the mines.at present shipping, situated near that town either
have their smelter at Northport or are
controlled by capitalists who are
closely allied with the 0. P. R. in the
East. Siuce the Trail smelter has been
in operation, however, the Hall Mines
Smelter received regular shipments
from the War Eagle and Velvet, near
Rossland, for a considerable period
and when these mines rosume ship
mentH, and others there become
shippers, the Hall Mines confidently expects to secure some
of the business. And as for
the Slocan ores both smelters meet on
an equal basis, and while, of course,
there is rivalry in endeavoring to se
cure tho shipments, uo undue pressure
is brought to bear bv the C. P. R. and
the Hall Mines secures shipments in
competition with the Trail Smelter
Only a few weeks ago there was
some lively bidding tor the output of
oue miue which the Trail smelter was
most anxious to secure but the Hall
Mines Smelter procured the shipments. This fact should dispose of all
talk of the C. P. K. endeavoring to
drive the Hall Mines Smelter out of
As to the St. Eugene ore from East
Kootenay, which is being hauled
through Nelsou to Trail, and about
which some papers made so much.
The Miner has been informed hy the
mauagemeut of the Hall Mines thai
they put iu no bid for the ore aud did
not *Wish to secure it. There are only
certain kinds of oie which the Hall
Mines Smelter wants and no effort is
mails to secure any other kiud.
It is self-evident that the C. P. R. i
very much interested in the success of
the Hall Mines Smelter as the greater
the business of the smelter hero the
greater will be the freight business of
tbe railway oompany. Newspaper ar-
tcles bemoaning the fact that the Hall
Mines smelter is olostug down owinj:
to the oppression of the 0. P. R. have
already doue Nelson considerable
harm. The contrary is the case and if
the Hall Mines management has any
complaint to make it will be taken up
iu the proper way and not aired iu the
columns of misinformed papers.
At present no ore is being smelted
in Nelson lint this does not interfere
w ith tlie operations of the company
which continues to receive ore every
day. The sampling woiks are running
and the company is prepared to receive
ore now just as it does when the
suielter is running full blast. Five
carloads of ore from the Blooan country were received yesterday and considerable oro ia being sent to the Hinder, the principal part of it from the
Queen Hess mine near Sandon. The
water jackets will be recoived here
shortly and will he put in place during
the flrHt week, in April when No. 1
furnace on lead will be blown iu aud
tbe large stock of lend ore now on
huud will keep the furnace busy for a
long time. About the middle of May
they expect to blow in the big blast
furnace on copper. Copper oro is he-
ing accummulated nt the Silver KiiiK
mine while the company is bringing
down some ore of a class suitable to be
smelted with load ore. The refinery
furnaces aro being repaired and will
uot he started until after the big blast
furnace is blown in. When the smel
ter is again in fnll blast it will run for
a considerable period. The Hall
Miues is in tho market at all timos
for copper ore.

directors of the company. owniiiK the
property, who has been in Nelsou a
cmiple of mouths. Hnfore Mr. White
leaves for England, however, he will
accompany Mr. Fleutot to tho mine
which is situated away up near the
Kokaneo Peaks, beyond the Molly Gibson when appioached from the Nelsou
side. When Mi. White visited the
camp last month he wus held prisoner
at the miue by storms raging on the
glaciers aud his friends here had almost given up hope of his safe return
as it was feared he had been lost in one
of the innumerable crevices that be
set the way to the property. The shaft
of the Joker is down ?0 foot, aud a
tunnel has beeu run 70 feet into the
ledge. Assays of tho ore taken by
Mr. White from the bottom of the
���haft and assuyed by A. L. MoKillop
show four ounces of gold to tho ton.
A ten stamp mill will be erected ut
the mine us soon as the roads aro good
enough to allow the machinery to be
takou up.

Silverton, March 21.���Sixty tous of
coventrates were today shipped from
this place which came from the Com-
stock mine. In the shipment there
were 1)7 sacks of clour ore, Total shipments from 1st January '9H from Silverton wore 1048 tous.
This euds the shipments from this
point for the present. The next matter
will be the repair of the Four Mile
Creek road. It is now in a bid condition and it will soon be impasBable unless it is repaired. It is hoped that the
Government will without delay see
after this work. It must tbis winter
have brought into the coders of the
Governmeut a considerable amount of
money, as since the early part of of
Lecember lost there have been brought
down it for shipment not less than
ISO!) tons of high grade ore,from all of
which the Government have levied or
doubtless will collect toll.
Messrs. Beimodmn and Aheroombe
are nt work on the A. E , oue of the
Red Mountain gold properties. Tbe
former was down recently, nssaving
the ore In which thoy ar* working,
and found that it curried gold to tbe
extent of al least fib per ton. Silvir-
ton bids fair tn be a gold-copper as
well as a silver lend  producing   camp.

The law receutly passed by the B C.
Legislature making eight-hour shifts
compulsory in metal mines will not
work to advantage in all parts of the
Proviuce. It might, be all right in
Kossland where the wages are $8 a
day. In that pamp the rock is hard
aud shaft work piedominates. The
���nines are bothered with bad air and
water which makes a short shift desirable. Iu the Slocan men work 10
hours a shift for $8.50. There has
never been any trouble between men
aud owners. The meu are willing to
work 10 hours for $8.50 and the employers are willing to pay it. There
is not much trouble with air or water
and most of tho work is iu tunnels
where ouly a certain number of mon
can work at a time no matter what is
the duration of the shift. If the law
changes this in lhe Slocan it will not
be satisfactory to either capital or labor. Everybody is satisfied now aud
if our Local Legislature would ouly
leave us alone there would be no cause
for complaint. Our legislators should
learn that a law may be good for one
locality and not for another.���Sandon
