Toronto, Ontario, May 15.���The
production of petroleum in Can-
ala is practically confined at present
to the counties of Lambton, Kent and
Rothwell, in the southern part of the
province of Ontario. The town of Pe-
trolia, in Lambton county, is the center of the principal distiict of produc-
Iton, while the work of refining is
carried on in Sarnia, about fourteen
miles distant, the crude oil being
pumped thrcugh pipes to the refineries. In this Ontario oil district,
there are about nine thousand oil
wells In operation, and the average
mouthy yield in nearly 00,000 burrels.
The ratio of crude petroleum to refined oil is about 100 to 40, so that
more than two barrels of petroleum
are required to make one barrel of refined oil lendy for household use.
The process of manufacture is complicated, and an extensive plant is required. The oil Is first distilled from
color. The distilled oil Is then refined,and lastly It Is bleached or clarified. From the mud-colored petroleum, an illuminating ol] as clear as
water is obtained. It Is then rendy
for shipment in bariels or tanks.
The oil is in every case found In the
cornlfeious limestone, nnd the different producing areas present local dome
structures on the main anticlines,
which afford good reservoirs for the
accumulation of oil.
The oil is pumped from nn average
depth of 4115 feet.
In lHliii there worn produced lu Canada 11.88.1,027 gallons of illuminating
oil of a value of 81,1117,870. The production of that yenr was equivalent to
748,007 barrolB.
During 180U there were imported
Into Canada oils to the value of 81,-
408,000 upon which duty wns paid to
the amount of 8580,000. This Included illuminating oils, animal oils, and
vegetable oils. The large portion of
the total importation was made up of
coal and kerosene oils, Several grades
used in Canada being received from
the United States. The importations
of linseed oil were nlso very huge,
running up to 8332,000 In value, exclusive of the duties, which amounted to
804,000 upon this one article. Lubricating oils are nlso largey Imported, the
value of the imports in 18l)l),including
duty, being upward of 8100,000,

(SPECIAL, TO Till!) MINKIl.)
Toronto, May 15.���Premier Ross has
addressed a letter to the city council
asking ifthey would not agree to the
removal of the statue of Sir John
Macdonald from the head of Queens
avenue to some other point to be selected by the city council and
at the expense ot the government,
in order that the proposed Ontario
statue of the late Queen muy be placed
where the former now stands. The
grounds of the appeal are that the
Prince of Wales, now King Edward,
when here in 1800 laid the corner
stone and foundation for the pedestal,
and that the spot was then dedicated
to tlie Queen for thc purpose of the
statue. Another point urged is that
this is the most conspicuous spot.

STAMPEDE AT REPUBLIC.
Granite Creek Staked For 12 Miles���
Tlie Town Deserted.
Republic, Wash., May 15.���Tho
placer strike on Granite creek, two
and one half miles west of town, has
thrown Republic into nn intense fever
of excitement. Developments todny
seem to show that there is gold in
the stream, nnd about $",0 in shot
gold wns taken out during the course
of the day hy prospectors. The creek
has been staked for its length from
the Republic mill well up to Wan-
conda camp, 12 miles away. The town
was practically deserted today, and
hundreds of men armed with all sorts
of Improvised pnim were engaged In
washing earth along the course of the
stream. In nearly every case they
got colors. Thus far no strikes of importance have been made, aside from
the discovery, but bedrock is In mnny
cases 15 feet deep, nnd it will not be
reached until tomorrow night.
Experienced placer miners who were
at first Inclined to look with doubt
upon the strike now agree thut the
dUcovery is genuine. All Iho surroundings, they say, are favorable to
the production of   n big placer   Held.
A. B. Buckworth, assistant census
commissioner, is.in the city on business connected with the census. In
nn interview with a Miner reporter
he was asked to make a statement in
regard to the report appearing In a
morning paper, that the. enumerators
of the census were going to be paid
at the rate of five cents per name, instead of S3 per day of eight hours, as
thoy were promised, and as the printed instrucitoiis specified.
Mr. Buckworth said that he had
read the report in the Toronto Globe,
but had received no official notice to
that effect. He also stated, as his
opinion, that it would not hare any
6fTect upon the work in B. C, fox the
reason that, the commissioners, when
they met at Revelstoke, prior to receiving their commissions, wired to
Ottawa requesting an increase' in the
amount of pay to that specified
in the instructions, as they claimed
that it was s.arcely a fair arrangement to make the same allowance for
the work in the west and that owing
to the difference in tbe cost of living
in the west they were entitled to an
increase.
A wire was receievd from the minister himself stating that the western
enumerators would be paid not less
than three dollars per day of eight
hours, and possibly more. Each commissioner has in his possession a copy
of this telegram and all are confident
that it is thu intention of the government to stand by tbe arrangement
they have caused to be printed in their
instructions to the commissioners and
enumerators.

si-u when one man died, and then one
by one Hie other sailors died and their
bodios were tl'roivn to the sharks
which followed.
A Frenchman went mad and attacked the captain with an ax, and as tbe
mate went to tlie captain's assistance
he wielded his ax, killing him, ate
his brains and drank bis blood. Others killed the Frenchman nnd nte
part of his body. Then one by one
the survivors died, until but two were
left, who subsisted on small fish taken with hoiike nails and lines made of
pieces of canvas. They diifted until
after 42 days of terrible suffering they
were washed on the Island of Soubi,
on November 24. By that time they
were so weak that they could not
walk, but had to crawl on their hands
and nkees. Their bodies were covered
with boils. There were about 200 natives on the island. The men went up
to the chief's house and lived there
for about two months. They had only
cocanuts, mango and little fis.i to eat.
After liivng there about two months
a Chinese junk arrived from Shiga-
pore with a cargo of lice and the
survivors went on board her. They
stopped on the junk for two months
and then went on her to l'nla-Miidi
and thence to Singapore.

North Sydney, May 15.���This town
has been wild with excitement toduy
over thc report of the bonding by
the Nova .Scotia St. '1 Co. ot all their
property at New Glasgow, Sydney
Mines, nnd Belle Isle to a syndicate of
English capitalists. Careful enquiries have been made all day, only to
verify the fact that such a deal has
bean made. It is assured that the
syndicate with which the company has
been treating is none other than tbe
one of which J. Pierpont Morgan is
the head. It is further asserted that
there is no doubt that the Dominion
Iron and Steel Co. have been putting
forth every effort to induce tlie Morgan syndicate to buy their works out,
but have been nsking too high figures
to   please the syndicate.
There is no doubt but the present
deal will end in tho purchase of tbe
property, and that the erection at
North Sydney of works on larger
scale than those at Sydney will at
once be proceeded with.
The amount for which Sydney
mines are bonded is ���8,000,000; Belle
Island, 81,1)00,01)1); the works nt Trenton, $1,000,000.
The Nova Scot In Steel Company purchased tho coal properties at the. Sydney mines last year for a million and
a half dollars.
Sir William Van Homo, R, It. Angus,
and Senutor Ross arrived al Sydney
tonight from Montreal. Sir William,
when interlvewed by ti reporter, freely discussed the Sydney and Nurfli
Sydney Steel works. Uu thinks the
possibilities of manufacturing around
Syndey harbor are unlimited. Discussing the ruiiiuri'd absorption of the
Sydney plant by the Morgan syndicate, ho said there was absolutely no
truth In It, and be thought. Iho Morgan syndicate had no intention of extending the operations to Oape Breton, lie also Hinted that, the Domin
Ion Steel Company was not for sale.
Sir William thought Sydney would
havo In the course of five years a population of 75,000. When the works
uro completed, he said, there would he
sixteen furnaces in operation. He considered tho possibilities of n shipbuilding plant at Sydney ns unsurpassed, but it, would require government
fostering to successfully establish it.

LOOKING FOR   A SOFT SPOT.
Evidently members of tbe Government aie anticipating naught but
barrenness from their railway legislation, and are already preparing to
put the responsibility upon Sir Wilfrid Laurier and his colleagues. In
ils review of the session Mr. Duns-
mun's paper,The Colonist, bays: "In
tlie matter of railway development
there was a complete failure on the
part of the Dominion Government to
give evidence of any intention to cooperate with tho Provincial authorities in bringing about work of this
kind. Indeed if we may credit the
statements attributed to the Federal
Premier, British Columbia will be ignored this session at Ottawa in the
matter of railway aid. Certainly
nothing was done by Sir Wilfrid to
make the way easy for Mr. Dunsmuir
in dealing with tbe railway problem
as presented during the session.. If it
is the intention of the Federal Government to co-operate with the Province in this important matter, surely
sonic evidence of the fact should bave
been forthcoming in time for the Legislature to shape its action accordingly."
Neither the Dominion Government
nor Parliament is expected to initiate railway legislation for Britisli
Columbia. That is a duty tbat belongs
to our own Legislature. Mr. Dunsmuir permitted the session to run its
course almost before he brought
down his mil way policy. Was be
vi��iiii'K to-'iave that policy shaped
for him at Ottawa? And how was It
possible to co-operate when our local
Premier icept bis hand so closely con.
coaled? When the policy was disclosed, Ottawa Ministers were not slow in
detecting that there was nothing to
co operate with ; that instead of giving bread to those who were crying
for railways, Mr. Dnnsmuir's Govern
ment offered them a stone. We do
well if we persuade the Federal au
thorities to help us if we first help
ourselves; it is unreasonable to expect
that they will do all. It is to be observed also, in connection with tbe
Loan Aet, thut_our Legislature took
pains to make it impossible tbat the
Federal authorities could do any
thing. Under the Railway Act the
Dominion is giver, control of all rail
ways coming within its jurisdiction;
tlie Legislature at Victoria was care
ful to provide that companies agree
ing to accept the terms of tbe Loan
Act should contract themselves beyond
and ontide the control of the Domin
ion; they are to bind themselves, hands
nnd feet, to the Provincial Government, thus making It Impossible to
obtain recognition at Ottawa,
Crass stupidity, if not worse, has
characterised our railway legislation,
and no one is to be impo��ed upon by
an attempt to put any of the responsibility on the Government ut Ottawa.
If the authorities at Victoria have
committed themselves to secret deals
intended to perpetuate railway monopoly in this Province, It is no part of
tbe duty of Sir Wilfrid Laurier and
his colleagues to belp on the game.
	
THK  HALF-HOLIDAY.
There are those In our midst who
would divide the town Into hostile
camps on so harmless a matter as a
weekly half-holiday. The merchants
voluntarily signed an agreement to
clone Thursday afternoons dining the
months of May, June, July and August, and so far have loyally observed
It. But at the very beginning efforts
were mnde to create dissension, and a
few who doubted the expediency of
the movement were encouraged to violate the agreement. First the groceis
iisdomlili'd In meeting, and resolved
to abide by the half-holiday; then a
general meeting of all retailers was
held, nnd by an overwhelming majority voted that the arrangement entered into should be continued. This It
was supposed would settle tbe matter,
but Inlluences are still at work to
canse the ratting of some of the mer-

will fail.
Like all young communities, Nelson
is subject to Hpasms. The people have
uot had time to lit themselves to each
other; they are not sufficiently acquainted to get on together with that
confidence and tni6t which come only
of long intimacy. But there is no
reason why there should be so much
ccntemptible jealousy as is too often
exhibited heie. A proposition is opposed in one quarter or by one element for no other reason than thut it
comes from another. That is hurt
ful to the community, for it is a
stumbling bloek to co-operation and
without co-operation our business
and social interests are often prejudiced. Those who are most concerned
and know the most about it are in favor of a Thursday half-holiday during
the summer months. If we were u
harmonious people, walking together
for the. mutual good,we would nt once
accept this as final und sny no more
about it. But the wretched jealousy
that is the curse of the town will not
allow the matter to sleep, and efforts
at dissension are to be continued. We
shall be wiser, it is to be hoped, in
another decade.
There is a probability that the Canadian Pacific Company will donate the
site for the proposed Carnegie library
buil.nng in Vancouver. This is a
new role for the Company, and if assumed a little oftener than it is would
help greatly to give it that popularity
in whiub it is so_sadly lacking. Ever
since |iis formation the Company lias
seemed to have but one purpose���to
grasp everything in sight. From territory desired by some other railway
company to n little affair of a town-
site it has always considered itself
alone, end was heartlessly indifferent
to any other interest. The other day
it appealed against the assessment of
its up-town telegraph office in Wi.ini
peg, claiming that it was exempt un
der its charter. These picayune things
iu the gross have at last been taken
as the measure of its conscience, and
today it is the most unpopular Cor
poration in the 1 o ninion. Little
acts like that recommended by Mr.
Marpole in Vancouver would cost it
nothing und would help to restore it
to favor.
Knstiyi Canada is seeing more clear
ly every day thut it will never da to
band over any portion of the Domln
ion to the mercies of one ruilway corporation. Manitoba saw this for herself thirteen years ago, and went to
the verge of rebellion to get in the
Northern Pacific. That did nol meet
expectations, nnd by a Inrge majority
her Legislature lust session supported
the Government in n contract with the
Canadian Northern. That contract
has just been ratified by the Ottawa
Parliament by a vote of 107 to S. Yet
Mr. Dunsmuir.unmoved by experience
elsewhere and superior knowledge to
his own,resolves to keep this Province
in subjection to one railway corporation. We'do not believe that in this
he will have tbe support of the
people.
Lord Salisbury asks what would bo
the position in respect to the Boer war
if Home Rule had passed in 1803? Of
course he does not pretend to say with
certain knowledge, but his belief
was that Great. Britain would have
had to fight Ireland too. ThiB is only
an opinion, and one mnn's opinion is
often no better thou another's.
Many wise men believo that with un
Irish Parliament in Dublin, there
would be no more loyal people in tbo
Empire than the Irish, and intimate
knowledge of the Irish churaeter as
seen in Canada would give support
to the belief.

A CLEVER BUSS.
Who _c��ncl lo a Hot  Flaht Over a
gealper'a Tleket.
"Talking 'bout scalpers' ticket*," said
an old conductor, "tho queerest thing I
know in that lino happened when I was
working for the Missouri Pacific, back in
the eighties. My run was between Kansas City and St. Louis, and one morning
as I was pulling out on my east bound
trip a fellow gave nio an old three day
excursion ticket that had expired nt least
six months before. I told him it was no
good, and after considerable growling ho
handed me some small silver.   'That will
carry 1110 to ,' be said, naming a little
way Blntlon, 'and between times I'll
tliink It over.' 'Very well,' I replied,
'hut 1 givo you notice right now that I
won't carry you a foot farther unlesB you
put up the money.'
"lie mnde no. answer and began carefully studying his ticket. When we got to
tho station, I wns by his side. 'Well,
sir,' I snld. 'whnt do you intend to do?'
'I intend to ridu on this ticket,' he snarled. 'I've read It over, and it's perfectly
good.' 'I'm not going to argue any more
about that,' said I. 'You pay your fare
quick or got off.' 'Not unless you'ro the
best man,' said he, looking ugly. Well,
I threw him off, but it was a tough Job.
Ilo fought liko a wildcat and came near
licking both me and the brnkemun. The
station where this happened wns in the
heart of a wild moonshine district, and
tho crowd that collected all sympathized
with the passenger. As we pulled out
they stoned the train. I expected to hear
from the fellow almost at once, but 1
didn't, nnd the affair soon passed out of
my mind.
"Six months later 1 happened- to be In
the general offices when, to my great
surprise, I saw him coming out of the
manager's private room. 'Who Is that
man?' I asked a clerk. Ho laughed.
'Why,  don't you  know  him?'   he said.
'He's  ,'  and  he  named  a detective
who had lately worked up the evidence
In a big train robbery case in tho very
neighborhood of the station where our
row bud occurred.
"Then I understood. You see, he wanted some good excuse for going into the
settlement, and there was no better role
than that of a poor man just ejected
from a train by n brutal conductor. He
had his scalper's ticket to show; he bad
just put up n genuine light, and be claim
ed to be dead broke. All that appealed
to the natives, aiiil tbey took him iu at
once. The result wns thnt hu staid there
a month and picked up nil the evidence
he wanted. It was a Bhrewd scheme,
but I still think he made that scrap unnecessarily renllstic." ��� New Orleans
Times-Democrat.
HORSE  FOOLED THE OFFICER.
Ho Mmle l'i> Ilia Mind That Hs Mast
Kliilsli UU "Spree."
On a recent evening during a driving
rainstorm a telephone message was received at the Wnlnut Hills police station stating that a runaway horse attach
ed to a Bprlng wagon had been stopped
by some boys 011 May street.
"Who understands horses?" asked the
sergeant of Ihe second relief that had
just t'utered the station house.
"I do," answered Officer Horstmeyor,
and ho was detailed to go over and drive
the horse to a livery stable, where It
would be kept until turned over to Its
owner. Upon arriving on May street
Hurst iiieyer found tbe horse, a wild
eyed brute, held firmly by the bridle bits
by two boys. There was no seat in the
wagon and nothing but nn old soap box
upon which to sit. Clambering In, Horst-
mcyer gavo the boys orders to lot go the
bridle, nnd in a second the horse's hoofs
began beating a violent tattoo on the
bottom of the wagon, sending the soap
box in the air and jarring the officer's
���pine with each concussion. This lasted
for two or three minutes, when suddenly
the liorso started and ran like a blue
streak down Hay street, the policeman
clinging desperately to the lines. South
May street ends abruptly In a dump or
All, and Horstmeyer knew this and prayed fervently. The end of the street was
reached at last, and the horse, with a
wild leap, went over, the wagon followed,
and in a second the animal, the wreck
of the wagon, the remains of the soap
box and Horstmeyer were mixed up In
an indiscriminate mass at the bottom.
A half hour later a mud plastered individual limped up to the door of the Seventh district station house, leading ���
horse, on which hung the remains of a
harness, and carrying a horso blanket on
one arm.
"Who Is that?" asked Sergeant Bart-
ley ns he peered out through the rain.
"It's me���Horstmeyer," answered tho
officer.
"Why," Bald the sergeant, "I thought
you understood horses!"
"I do," answered Horstmeyer. "But
I think it's a low German I"���Cincinnati
Enquirer.
A Biff Cedar,
The finest English elm In New York
city Is on the west side of Madison
square. Probably the choicest tree In any
of the New York city parks Is tbe cedar
of Lebanon In Prospect park. It stands
on the meadow northeast of Lookput hill.
The height, about .0 feet, Is remarkable
for this country, nnd It would bear no
mean comparison to some of tho famous
ones in Kew gardens, London. It is
claimed that there iB only one finer cedar
of Lebnnon In the United Stales. It Is on
the Huntington estate nt West Chester
and is about 60 feet high. These trees
art most attractive In the early summer,
when the old and new cones hung pendent together. This tree does not cone until It is 40 years old.���Now York Tribune.
Nice Distinctions.
Nice distinctions are troublesome. It li
so much easier to say that a thing Is
black than to discriminate the particular
shade of brown, blue or green to which It
really belongs. It is so much easier to
make up your mind that your neighbor is
good for nothing than to enter Into all the
circumstances that would oblige TOu to
modify that opinion.

COMMUNICATIONS
To the Editor:
Sir,���My attention having been
called to a certain article in your Issue of the lSth Inst., deservedly extolling the action of a Canadian life insurance company, I request leave to
qualify a statement made there, viz. :
English insurance companies raised
the rates of "men at the front." As
representing the London A Lancashire
Life Co., in tins city, I beg to say
that men insuring in that company
have no restrictions as to war either
at home or abroad, and I believe
"there are others" giving the same
freedom.    Yours truly,
London A Lancashire Life.
Miss Ball of the Canadian Viavi
Co., will give another of those illustrated health talks to mothers and
daughters in the opera house on Friday, Mny 17, at 3 p. m. These talks
are instructive and of vital importance to every woman. No admission
will be charged, but a collection will
be taken to defray expenses.

Rosebery la. a suf-
Hcientely iniportaut book to attract
the notice of the beat customers of our
book counters. Great as hai been the
mass, of Napoleonic literature during
the last few years, there is no work
that has reached a higher mark of
merit than Lord Rosebery's excellent
description of the last days of Napoleon. Oo every page the book bears
the marks of sincere research. It is
the soil of book whose vogue is not
merely temporary. The price is 83.00

A CORRECTION-
A couple of minor inaccuracies speared iu The Miner's account of the
merchants' meeting held on Tuesday
evening. E. C.Miller presided instead
of'J. II. Wallace, and John Loch-re
represented the Hudson's Bay stoics
instead of Manager Glgot.
WILL CLOSE AT NOON���
At 12 o'clock today the stores of this
city will close in accordance with tbe
agreement made three weeks ago,
and the proprietors, managers and
clerks of the various departments will
have a chance of relief from their
daily task. It is to be hoped that the
citizens of Nelson, with their well
known generosity will complete their
purchases in the forenoon and set the
boys at liberty for a   little fresh air.
WATER STILL RISING���
The waters of the lake are slowly
but surely rising. At six o'clock
last evening the waters had risen four
inches during the last twenty-four
hours, and the lake is now eight feet
above Its normal height. About forty feet of the city wharf is now submerged and the boats are making
their landings abont half way doe a
the wharf, and the city boat houses
are being made additionally seoure.
THE SCOTTISH CONCERT-
Tbe Scottish Concert to be given at
the opera liouse on tbe evening of
Monday next promises to be an attraction of more than ordinary merit.
Gavin Spence and Flora Macdonald
are generally recognized to be two
of tbe best Scottish entertainers ever
appearing In Canada, and that they
will be greeted with a very large
house here seems certain. Tickets are
now in the hands of members of the
St. Andrew's society and are going
rapidly. Tho reserved seat plan is nt
the Canada Drug & Book store.
TO PASS INSPECTION���
Lieut.-Colonel Holmes, District Officer Commanding, Military District
No. 11, will Inspect the armories of
the Nelson company, Rocky Mountain Hungers,on Monday next.and commands that all arms, clothing and
accoutrements, be handed in before
that time. The armory will be open
on Saturday evening from 7 to 10,
and every member of the company
must hand in his uniform with his
name on a ticket on bach piece. Any
rifles thnt are being used on Sunday
must be returned between 2 and 5 p.
m, on that day. The visit of the 1).'
O, C. Is for the purpose of handing
the command of the company over to
the new officers, and he requires a re
ceipt from the captain for all equip
ments, therefore tbe necessity of hav

Alia-doiM-il.
It Ib almost as hard for nn old coffee
toper to quit tbe use of coffee as It is
for a whiskey or tobacco fiend to
br.iik off. except that tbe coffee uicr
can quit coffee and take up Postum
Food Coffee without any feeling of a
��� loss of the morning beverage, for when
Postum Is well boiled and served with
cream It is really better In point of
flavor than most of the coffee served
" nowadays, and to the taste of-the
connoisseur It Is like the flavor of fine
Java. A irreat transformation takes
place In the boy within ten days 01
t*o weeks after coffee Is left off and
Postum Food Coffee use,for the reason
that the poison to the nerves has been
discontinued and In Its place Is taken
a liquid that contains the most powerful elements of nourishment.
It Is easy to make this test and
prove these statements by changing
from coffee to Postnm Food Coffee.
SUCCESSFUL CONECRT-
The amount realized by tho children's fancy dress concert on Tuesday
evening, for the Nelson library fund,
was <t50 clear.
SPECIAL TRAIN-
The regular train from Rossland

spoke on the sooial problems oF tho
day, leaves this morning lor Victoria,
by the way of the Great Northern
On his way out he will stop off at
Ymir and deliver a lecture on "What
Aro We At." The reverend gentleman is an eloquent speaker on social
problems nnd in that hot bed of socialism he will no doubt be given a
bumper house. The reverend gentleman expects to return to this part of
the province in the fall, nnd will roost
likely take in Nelson on the trip.
VREY MUCH ELECTED���
(1. M. Amiable. M. L. A. for Moose-
jaw, and brother of .1. E. Amiable, of

olllcer, however, throw out eighteen
ballots and declared Hitchcock elected
by a majority of five. Annable applied for a recount befoie a Judge.
Tne recount took place before Mr.
Justice Richardson of Rcgina, who re
veiscd the.deoislon, allowing most of
tlie rejected ballots, the resnlt being
that Annable was declared elected by
a majority of four. Accordingly,
when the assembly met a few days
ago Annablo took his seat in the
house.

enabled to continue it during the
summer months.

to have no more trouble with your
watch. Take it to Patenaude Bros.
They'll do the rest."
