BOILER MAKERS STILL OUT.
Trail. Vancouver and Montreal Mentioned. -Canadian Despatches.
(SPKX'IAI, TO Till'. MlNKR.)
Montreal,   May 39,���The   announcement   is  expected   here any day that
' the C. P. It. will construct a lead refinery in Canada to relieve the silver-
leud Industry of British Columliiu
from the oppression of the American
Trust. It has beer, apparent for some
time that the Canadian Pacific was
unxitiiiH   to   secure    tint   CtoveiniscHt
.bonus on rtiliiii'ii lead ... t_e creel iu.1
,'of the reflujsry, a-~ ..tr. AUrirtge,.
teenager of the Trail smelter, was in
Ottawa for some weeks urging the
passage of the bonus measure. He is
on record as stating that  the (J. P. IT.
. Intended to erect u refinery but, as to
location he would   say nothing.    The
' question of location is simply a qucs-
:tiou of tiansportation, and it is difficult to say just what   effect   the   fact
��� that a company thut hus the matter
of transportation in its own hands will
erect the refinery, will have on the
matters to he taken into consideration
��� When the locution is being decided
upon. If the llooderham and lilnck-
stock company, who first spplied for
the bonus, had stayed in tbe field
a-,, erected tbe refinery it Would hnve
been located 111 Montreal, but the appearance of   the Canadian Pacific as a
���claimant   for   the     bounty    entirely
;changes   the   aspect   of   nlTairs.    En-
. quiry here fails to elicit nny information as the officials state they hnve
lio'.hing to say.
Trail, if it is built in the inferior,
Vancouver, if it is at the Coast, and
Montreal, if it is the Kast, are the
three places limited upon by mining
men here from which one will lie
ehosen. Tbat there will ultimately
be a good market for lead iu thc Orient is Vancouver's strongest claim for
the refinery. Refilled lead would be
earned to Hong Kong, where factories could roll il, for ton packages and
manufacture it into various articles.
Another claim is the probability thai
in a few yars the country north along
the Coast will   be a large  producer of
' lead which could be most conveniently and economically refined in Vancouver. Montreal's claim is that after
the Oriental market is supplied there
Will still be the greater part of tho
yearly output to find a, market for
and tbat market will be London. If
the. 0. P. K. figures it out that IL is
best to have the refinery near the
amelters it will probably he made
pail of tbe Trail plant. However, inducement in the way of a municipal
bonus might have an important effect
tn deciding the company whore to
build.

The Royal Commission, appointed to
enquire into Chinese and Japanese
immigration i_tp Canada, sat iu Nelson yesterday anil (1 >.~k take evl~e_ee of
K.HW   Ki_r��-J*-aM.       AU    VUt ��_��� <_f    these
witnesses wore <l<i.-id��dly anti-Mongolian, the tcstlRioay being vhielly
confined to those connected with the
laundry business and the different
unions of thc city. This morning at
It) o'clock the Commission resumes its
sittings anil will endeavor'to complete
its business in time to catch the 4
o'clock boat this afternoon for Kaslo,
where a sitting will be held tomorrow. That will close the taking of
evidence and the Commission will go
to the American Coast cities to inquire into the conditions prevailing
there in connection with the Oriental
question and return to Vancouver to
hear the addresses of various counsels,
The Commission is composed of R.
C. Clute, Toronto, chairman; li. 3,
Muiin, New Westminster, and Christopher Foley, Rossland. F. J. lieane,
of Kamloops, accompanies it as secretary, Charles Wilson, lv. C., of Vancouver, as counsel for the provincial
government, aud A. Crawford, of To
ronto, as stenographer.
Mr. W. II. Bullock-Webster, chief
constable of the Kootenay district,
was the Hist witness sworn. Early in
his evidence be said be. had a natural
antipathy to Chinamen ; their presence tended to reduce the Bcnle of
wages so that white men cannot live,
tbey wero dirty, unsanitary, and tbe
eoolic class���which excepts those employed as domestic servants and merchants���weie generally dishonest.
Japs were a little better ns they were
more honest anil their manner of living was more nearly that of a white
man. But, in both instances, he
thought, their further immigration
should be restricted and such action
would not Inconvenience in the
slightest, way any existing industry.
There was certainly great difficulty
in obtaining while domestic help in
the district and he himself employed
n Chinese cook. Chinamen would
work for Smaller wages than white
domestic servants. Ilo had eight
years experience from a police standpoint with Orientals.
Iu answer to Commissioner Menu's
questions Mr. Webster slated that the
Chinese weie more reliable as domes-
tie servants than whites. Many Chi
i.ese were engaged in mnrket gardening. What vegetables were consumed
here lb.it tvere not grown here were
Imported from the Stales, lie thought
It heller to have all thc vegetables
Imported rather than have them
grown here by Chinuinen, but ho did
not know whether thoy were grown
by Chinamen across tbe line. There
was also u strong prejudice here
against Italians. Tbey livetl aa bnllly
as the Chinese and were more trouble;
some to the police than the Chinese,
but the latter were the greatest sneak
thieves In tlie aonntry and it wutul-
uio.t impossible to get evidence to
convict tbem.
To Commissioner Foley the witness
said that he had seen evidences of
race prejudice, and cited the case of
tbe Chinaman who wus forcibly thrust
out of Phoenix. They did not possess
the faculty of assimilating with the
whites and could therefore never become good citizens and tbe prejudice
would not disappear nor could they
be forced out by competition, as they
could always cut the priceB of the
whites. If the Chinese wero not engaged in tho business white men
would undoubtedly go iuto market
gardening.
Mr. Henry E. Croasdaile, for several years manager of the Holl Mines,
was the next, .v.tuos.. The chief point
brought out in his evidence was tbat
in this distiict the Chinese did not in
tiny way conflict with white labo", as
tbe work done by tbe Chinese would
���ot ka performed by wkitw. The.
were chiefly engaged as domestic servants for the reason that it was impossible to get good white girls in
that capacity.
In that aud market gardening they
did not in any way eomc in conflict
with the laboring classes. Tbey contributed to the development of the
country to the extent of helping to
make life comfortable and if they
were not here families desiring servants would have to live elsewhere to
procure them or pay wages that a
family only moderately well off could
not afford to pay. In no way did
they retard the industrial development
of the country as in this district they
were not engaged in any industrial
enterprise except lnundrying. The
majority of feeling was opposed to
the Chinese, but this majority was
made up of people who never employed them nor received any benefits
from them. They lertainly would not
make good citizens and he wculd not
grant them the franchise, but at present they could be made uHe of to good
advantage. The country was not yet
ripe for having tbem excluded. To
Commissioner M111111 Mr. Croasdaile
said tho Chinese did not do work
which developcs the Country hut they
are no barrier to its progress. They
look well after tho comfort and conveniences of whites. They have not
kept out white girls, ns there are always openings for such servants.
They a��-e, however, very hard to get.
The witness went into the general
condition of the country at length and
stated that it was uot, wise to experiment with any existing conditions.
In the past few years that bad already done too much harm to tho
Province.
Commissioner Foley, who represents
the extreme anti-Chinese element on
the Commission, subjected the witness
to a regular cross-examination that
wns quite the feature of he day. No
new points of importance were brought
ont, however.
"Now, Mr. Croasdaile," saiil Mr.
Foley at one time, "yon said a little
while ago that tho Chinese helped to
build up the Cariboo country. How is
it then that everybody up in that
country is bankrupt?"
"Because," said Mr. Croasdaili
quietly, "tbey did not have enough
Chinese to work all their low grade
placers."
This created a hearty laugh in
which the victim joined heartily but
bis next question wa.-. located in Oregon. Mr.Croasdaile gave a great deal
of valuable evidence of which the
above touches only a few points. He
was the lust witness before the noon
adjournment.
The flint witness in the afternoon,
when the Commission agnin sat at
8:80, was Mrs. Margaret Walsh, a
la 1111 dress. She was the second woman
to give evidence out of the 3110 witnesses that the Commission has ex
11 mined. She spoke of the impossibility of making n living in the laundry tiuBiness on account of tne competition of the Chinese who woiked very
cheaply. The people of Nelson seemed
to appreciate Chinese more than white
people. Last winter she had made
application.at several residences for
bouse work and was told in every
ease that a Chinaman was employed.
"The Chinamen," she said, "do not
spend a cent in town but Bond it
home to China or Victoria." She
knew   plenty   of   women iu.Montreal

I    Alfred   Larsen,   proprietor   of   th
j Nelson Steam Laundry, was   tlie next j
1 witness. Ilo suid he ha I 110,000 invested in plant here, employed It
hands and disbursed from SS40 to $.1011

he had heen here he had spent sss.ooo j Uncertainty Prevailing as to

It. He paid from 3is to 81!) per week
to his hands, lie cannot do "'ork ns
cheaply as tho Chinese who have practically nothing at stake in the eity.
Owing to the competition he is compelled to eJiarge just three-fourths
what is charged in Spokane and lie
pays one-fourth more for wages than
steam laundries do in that citv. His
business was increasing but his plant
could do three times as much as lie is
doing now. That increase, however,
would require three lines the number
of employees, lie could compete with
tbe Chinese by employing Chinese,
but he would uot do it. A friend of
his was diiven out of the steam laundry business in (Irand Porks by the
competition of the Chinese. Three-
quarters of tho laundry business of
Nelson was done by Chinese,
Charles Hillyer, president of the
N_la~a -Saw nnd I'Laniwg Mill*, avhitrti
empluye forty Men-a. salaries 1 .i,niN~
from 82.20 to $4 per day, was then
examined. Ilo had to compete with
firms at the coast employing Chinese
and Japanese and if something were
not done be would soon have to employ Oriental labor himself or close
his mill. On Sicount of the Americans employing Chinese they could
ship sashes and doors Into Nelson,
paying 35 per cent duty, and still
compete with the witness. Mr. Hillyer went into full details in answer
to the questions of the Commissioners
and Mr.  Wilson.
Win. Jarvis, chief of police in Nelson, stated that be did not find the
Chinese particularly troublesome except in connection with enforcement
of tbe sanitary regulations, lie did
not think they were of much use to
the conntry.
Mrs. Josephine Marshall, vice
president, of the Laundry Workers'
union; Charles Clayton, president of
the Carpenters' nnd Joiners' union,
and George Payne, representing the
Nelson Laborers Protective union,
put In statements from tbeir respective unions showing the evil being
done to them by the Chinese. The
statements and resolutions were put
in as exhibits and the witnesses thoroughly examined. Each of them stated that tho country would be much
better off without Chinese and they
asked for legislation that would entirely restrict Oriental immigration.
Particulars were given in each case
snowing the harm tho unfair competition was doing.
This morning Mr. S. S. Fowler,
Mr. John Houston and a representative of the Chinese colony will be examined.
RETURN OF THE 8BALERS,
Spokane, May 89.���The trouble at
the Northport smelter is a puzzle to
mining men here. They are all In
doubt as to the reason why the works
should have been shut down by tho
Hritish America Corporation, Officers of the company say that threats
of violence against foremen had been
Blade by nulou men. Tbey assert
that tbe. plant was closed in order to
prutoet the employees,
Oh the other hand, tbe union laugh
at tlie rumors of violence. They tie-
olare that the lockout is merely the
first step on the part of the Hritish
America Corporat'on to kill the
unions.
Mining men here do not generally
accept the statement that the plant is
shut in order to protect some employes. Tbey say it is not common
for English corporations to be so
thoughtful as to stop all operations
in order to look after one or two
workmen.
There is a story, believed in somo
quarters to tho effect that the smelter
is closed to depress the stock market
in London.
In this connection it is ponted out
that tho management of tlie Hritish
America Corporation was at unusual
pains to give wide publicity to the
fact that the smelter at Northport
would be closed.
Union men today said there was little probability of a strike. There are
rumors thnt the oontrol of the Le Roi
has passed into the hands of an American syndicate, but Manager Mao-
Donald denies this. It is claimed,
howovei, that this is true.

poor one. There wero IM7 whites anil
305 Indians employed in the industry.
A banquet and testimonial are Icing arranged here to Turner.
The census returns are expected to

twenty thousand Inhabitants', Vancouver is likely to be about, twenty-
four thousand.

Northport, May 80,��� There is no
change 111 the Northport smelter lockout antl strike situation today. No
work is being al the smelter, but the
ore shipments continue to come down
from Kossland as usual.
It is understood that Messrs. Clute,
Smith Curtis and Chris Foley would
be willing to act us arbitrators in the
matter in very much the s.uue manner
us tbey did in Uoss'and a year ago.
The smelter being in the United
Stales antl not in Canada tbo gentlemen feel a double difficulty in noting.
They, of Course, will take no action
whatever unless :i joint request for
arbitration is made.
Mayor Lalonde has taken the matter up and is doing what bo can to
bring nbout a meeting���no far without success.

SPEED THE PROJECT.
It is only indirectly, and perhaps
also remotely, that Hritish Columbia
is interested in a Georgian Bay canal.
The locality is a long way off, and if
th�� canal were built, even on toe ambitious plan designed by its projectors, this Province does not stand to
furnish it with any patronage for a
great many years to come. Hut tbe
people here would rejoice notwithstanding to see it built. There may
be railways and railways, but until
full advantage is taken of the uatural
facilities offered by that great stretch
of inland water communication the
transportation question in Canada
will not be solved. And this applies
not only to Canada,hut to a large portion of tho United Statos, that ie not
less dependent on the St. Lawrence
route for emancipation from heavy
freight   rates.
There are many schemes, but there
would not be any at all unless the necessity for cheaper and more expeditious facilities for transportation
were felt. Ihe giain of the West will
not bear the cost of railway^carriage.
The Americans ship from Chicago to
Buffalo, and there transfer to Erie
canal barges. This, however, is found
expensive, and it is slow. A few use
our St. Lawrence canals and ship to
Montreal, but the advantage is doubtful. Something better must be provided. The business men of the whole
Lakes region feel the urgency of the
matter, but they are at a loss what to
do. There have been Canal Conventions, but beyond declaring tbat a
deep waterway is absolutely essential
to the wants of the West they have so
far failed to accomplish anything. An
American scheme was to build around
Niagara, and again from Oswego to
the Hudson, but it meant an expenditure of two hundred millions, which
ia beyond their means.
The present Canadian canals nre entirely inadequate to the trade, and to
deepen them is out of the question.
The demand of the West is for a
twenty-foot waterway. Wheat loaded
at Fort William, Dulnth, und Chicago muBt go straight through to Liverpool without transfer; lake steamers
must become ocean steamers, and
ocean steamers lake steamers. The
only feasible project yet presented la
the Georgian Bay canal. The ronte
would, be from the mouth of French
River to Lake Nipissing, across that
Lake, along the Mattawa River
into the Ottawa, antl down the
Ottawa to Montroal. It would be
over four hundred miles in length,
but only thirty or forty would be cu-
nal; the rest is a .succession of natural
watercourses tbat only need tbe hand
of man to make them available.
There would be a number of expensive locks. The cost of the whole undertaking Is estimated at 8iw,000,000.
Then' Is no other way under the sun
by which a deep waterway from the
Lakes to the Kustern seaboard can bo
furnished at such small cost. Soon
the feeling In tho West will overcome

Colin II. Campbell, was assuring a
Toronto reporter the other dny that
there was nothing ever like it and
that there would be at least forty
million bushels of wheat alone. They
forget in these annual ebullitions of
enthusiasm that a drought may come,
as it did last year, or that rains may
drown out many of the fields, or that
the dreaded frost may play the mischief with their hopes. A dozen
things may happen between seed time
and harvest,and,alas, some of them do
happen occasionally; but every season
regularly the people All themselves to
the neck with the most extravagant
hopes just as if a drought or a frost,
bad never been heard of.
The Rossland Miner remarks on the
circumstance that Mr. Dunsmuir and
Mr. Joseph Martin are co-directors
in a mining company,and asks if there
can be any further doubt of the
friendly relations between these two
gentlemen. It should direct its inquiry to The Victoria Colonist, as it
no doubt in a position to declare
exactly what those relations are. The
leador of a Government and the leader of an Opposition are not usually
bedfellows, but politicians who congregate at Victoria, have a way of
their own of doing things.
WALL PAPER
liresei left behind him a paper ou
which was written, "Death to monarchy and all canaille who are its instruments." Any sane man may have
political views that are opposed to
monarchies, but no one who is not of
diseased mind could talk of "canaille
who are their instruments." Tbe anarchist and the socialist of the extreme order get their heads turned
with these distorted and extravagant
ideas, and then run amuck. And little socialists think it grand.
A LUCKY FIND. ���
What proved to be a more profitable Und than gold happened the other day to a traveller from San Francisco, while at lunch in one of the
leading restaurants in Kelson. lie
ordered a portion of Pumpkin pie,
when to his astonishment his appe-
titie, which he had lost fifteen years
ago in Arizona, suddenly returned to
hiin, with renewed vigor. Tbe pie
had a very solid texture and a rich
mellow flavor. The cook informs ns
thut it was made from "The Morse
Pumpkin Flour." None other just as
good,    insist on "The Morse llraiul."

LAKE STILL RISING.
Gradually Getting Nearer tho Danger

The water In the lake is only four
feet from the lloor of the engine room

property before they abate. The
water In Cottonwood creek has lowered several inches since yesterday and
the immediate danger at the dam and
the railway crossing has been removed.
On Tuesday last from (l a. m. to 8

The Globe Co., of Kaslo, which has
taken over tlie Leviathan Group of

at certain placeB along the ledgo a
depth of some !iOO feet can bo obtained by way of tunnel of modest length.
In spite of adverse opinion there is
among the small circle of those who
know the property un unbounded confidence that the proposition will turn
