Tl
John Houston has a very simple
way of gettiug rid of the Chinese and
alapau.su. "If ovory man and every
Ann in Hiitish Columbia" he said
yesterday to the Royal commission,
"would not hire a Chinaman or a
.lap there would not be one of them
jl the country in two years. I wonld
rather see every cannery and sawmill
a. the Coast close down for a year
than run as they do now with Oriental help." He said he would exclude
them altogether. They were not a desirable nlass of people and their presence hero tends to lower wages and
d 'grade the class of people compelled
to compete with them. They do not
assimilate with whites ar.d from his
standpoint no tace that cannot assimilate is desirable no matter who they
are���Japanese, Chinese, Italian. Irish
or Scotch or anybody else. If legislation similar to that of the United
States cannot be enacted here he
would favor a head tax of $1,000
which would effectively keep them
out. They are no more necessary,
he thinks, as domestic servants in
Nelson than they are any other place.
They are employed simply because
they are here and it is convenient.
If the people made up their minds not
to employ them there would not be a
Chinaman in Nelson in six months.
It would inconvenience some temporarily, but once they were out of town
equally gocd white help would soon
be here to take their places. He referred to a couple of instances in the
early days when firms said they could
not get along without Oriental help
but when people refused to do business with these firms white men
speedily replaced the Mongolians.
White help could always be secured
If insisted upon. They were not much
of a factor in this country as they do
not compete with the laboring classes.
He had been informed that of the Chinese who came here nine-tenths were
of, the criminal class and came only
f~.m one province. He did not believe
(n bringing in Doukhobors or that
glass of immigrants. He said that
if he were running a cannery on tbe
Fraser he would employ only white
men. "I might go broke but If I
didn't at the end of a year every other
cannery would be forced to employ
only white help."
The first witness of the n.orning
was A. J. Curie, secretary of the Nelson Trades A Labor Council, who
filed a batch of answers to a number
of question papers which the council
circulated. He also presented a statement from the Cooks' and Waiters'
union.
��� J. K. Stiachan, fllty clerk, promised
to forwilrd a statement of the Chinese
holdings in Nelson and other statistics concerning them. He said it wa'i
difficult to obtain white domestic help
In Nelson and it would cause consul
erable inconvenience if they were to
go. He did not think, however, that
any more were required
Kwong Wong Chong, a prominent
Chinese merchant next gave ovidence.
He said that there are 885 Chinese in
Nelson���50 as cooks and domostics, 80
working ir. laundries, the total number of which he placed at four. 40 cutting wood, 50 working in the 12 market gardens, 10 ineichants. and about
150 idle because there was not work
for them. No Chinaman was making
any money. He didn't care how many
came to the countiy as it made no
difference to him. He thought a $500
head tax would keep them out, ns It
did out of New South Wales. He said
it cist a Chinaman here $10 a month
to live.
Mar Sam, a laundryman, suid there
were ten laun.lries, employing 50 men,
but there was no money in it. He
was quite indifferent as to any future
action in keeping Chinamen out.
JGns Bilckson, proprietor of the
(Irani! Central hotel and half owner'
of the Lako Vi~w hotel,stated that >'e
employed  no   Oriental   help  nnd got
Immediate   Renovation Should He Insisted on to Sav   Assiz.es.
One thing th.it can be said in favor
of the citizens of Rossland is thai
they always have an eye on the main
chance. They have recently opened
their handsome new court house���a
most pretentious building with perfect court room accommodation,
Over there they know what the Nelson couit house is like and they have
set up a clamor to have the sittings of
thai assize courts for the county of
Kootenay held there. In referring to
the Nelson court room the Rossland
Miner says:
"The lawyers and prominent citizens who participated in this discussion remarked that the Nelson court
house was in such a condition that
witnesses, lawyers, judges and others
compelled to do business there were
seriously affected physically, and
that it was a crying shame tbat such
conditions should be permittedto exist by tho government. The grand
juries for tile past four or five years
have united in condemning the building in like terms, and presiding
judges have been compelled ou several
occasions to abandon the courtroom
altogether and hold their sessions in
the next available apartment, which
is about large enough to accommodate
about a dozen persons,"���and the
worst of it is that it. is all true���every
word of it.
The Miner then makes a strong
plea on behalf of the commodious
court room at Rossland. For years
Nelson has been endeavoring to have
something done to the miserable
quarters here. Is it not time to insist
upon it being done at once or is Nelson going to let the important assizes,
which bring a great many litigants,
lawyers, and witness S to Nelson, go
to some place else?

0A.T.RB OF LEITHNER.

Victoria, II. C., May 80,���An unconfirmed report has been received here
that Loithner, the absconding Northern Pacific agent has been captured at
Winnipeg. The police deny any
knowledge of soma.
TO CONFER WITH M'NICOLL.
(SPECIAI. TO THE MIN EH.)
Montreal. May 80.���James Wilson,
grand president of the Brotherhood of
Railway Trackmen, anil the grievance
committee of the C. P. R. track men,
arc in the city to confer with D. Mc-
Nlcoll, general manager al the C.P.R.
A. B. Forrester of Robson arrived
ir the city last evening on the Rossland train, having in charge Alexander Glencross, tin horn gambler an.!
Hob Hogan, cook, who have been
lodged in the provincial jail charged
���with conspiracy to hold up Frank
McGoogan on the stage road between
Grand Forks and Phoenix. When arrested Hogan had on his person a 45-
Colt levolver and Glenoross a valise
containing a complete opium smoking
outfit. Karnes made a full confession
to the officers, implicating the others.
McGoogan runs gambling tables in
Grand Forks and every Sunday morn-
icg has been in the hail.: of taking
up to Phoenix from $1,500 to.$4,000.
This the prisoners learned and decided to roo him. Three times they
made the attempt, hiding by the
road, but cironmstances prevented
their carrying tho game to a successful conclusion. On Sunday a final
attempt was to have been made, but
McGoogan was warned by Provincial
Officer Joe Darrauglf. Meanwhile the
local police got a tip from Joe Wilson
who had been approached by Barnes
to take a hand, but had refused.
Yesterday they were arrested and
brought up for their preliminary
hearing before Judge llolsem at
Greenwood, together witli Louis C.
Barnes, wbo was also one of the party. The latter turned King's evidence
and pleaded guilty, having elected a
speedy trial, and now awaits sentence at the jail in Greenwood. The
other two will be confined in tbe
provincial jail iii Nelson until the
fall assizes when their pal Barnes
will bo the chief witpess and whose
sentence will likely be deferred until
the trial of his comrades.
B. C. Forrester also reported the arrest by P. C. McMillan of two hoboes
who at the point of a revolver attempted to I oard the EhoU-Phoenix
combination train near the Oro Denoro Siding last night. After being
ejected they made a second attempt to
get on the coach, and in the scrimmage tbat followed Conductor Hal-
penny received slight injuries.
There is a third person in the deal
and the police are working that claim
these days assiduously, endeavoring
to locate the misslnsg lead. Menu-
while the other claimants to become
thc wards of the nation will come up
for hearing at the Greenwood police
court today.

UNDER FOUR HUNDRED.
In conversation with James Han-
nerman of this oity regarding statements made before the Royal commission on the Chinese question yesterday
lie observed that the assertion made
by several of tho witnesses that there
arc six hundred Chinese in the city is
not correct, as at the very outside
there are not more than 375. As Mr.
Bannerman took the census in the
Chinese quarters a few weoks ago his
statement has weight.
OF A LONG-LIVED FAMILY.
(SPECIAL TO THE MISER.)
Toronto, May 30,���Sir William
Rowland, father of Mayor Howland,
celebrated his 00th birthday today.
J. Roderick Robertson in replying
to the leading question of the day relating to the matters of the much
talked of refinery question turned up
the last issue of The Miner and in answer to the question contained
amongst its telegraph dispatches
where tbe answer was attempted as to
who wonld get the lead refinery, stated as his opinion that no one could
possibly tell at the present moment
anything definite in regard to the
matter. Although there was no doubt
that the refinery would be built by
some one, there was nothing known
at the present time as to who wonld
build it or as to where it would be
erected. For some time past negotiator have been proceeding with a
view not only towards increasing the
smelter facilities of British Columbia, but also to tbe erection of a refinery; and these matters in Mr. Robertson's opinion, will shortly be successfully dealt with. There would
need to be a reasonable guarantee,
however, that the proposed refinery,
when erected, would receive the trade
of the province. Furthermore, while
the expenditure of $250,000 .or 8300,-
000 might erect the refinery it would
cost a great deal more to opttratj.
The matter of finding markets Is also
another factor which will weigh very
largely with the ultimate success of
the scheme. As the smelter trust of
the United States which a year ago
had a capitalization of $60,000,000 has
now $500,000,000capitalization, it will
be at once seen tbat no small company will be able to compete against
them, but that any such undertaking
will require the very strongest financial backing. It was a matter of
great consequence to tbem, moreover,
as mine owners to encourage the enterprise whereby their mined ore delivered to the smelters would be disposed of.
In regard to the bonus itself, he
observed that although it wan not all
that had been asked for it was as
much as the government were disposed to give; in fact only two weeks
before the announcement of their 'n-
tention to grant the bonus it was
thought the government would not do
so during the session just ended, it
being suggested that a commission be
appointed to go into tbe matter,
which would lay its report before the
liouse next year, thus postponing matters practically for an indefinite time.
Asked in regard to the complaint
which was made by some that the
amount of the bonus was too limited
in its effect, he intimated that to
some extent that was true, he doubted not, however, that the government
having admitted the principle and realizing the requirements of the situation would come to our rescue and
protect its trade in the mining districts of the west by further assistance when need for euob action was
demonstrated. Speaking of the results of his eastern trip along other
lines he mentioned tbat the Cascade
Water, Power A Light company, (of
which he is manager), closed a contract for the installation and erection
of tho machinery of their power
plant, which when completed will be
utilised for the towns and mining
properties of the Boundary 'country,
within the next few months. The
installation of the plant will entail a
very large outlay to install some
thousands of horsepower, the work of
building flumes, dams, foundations,
eto., has been quietly proceeding f.r
somo months.
In answer to a question regarding
the mining troubles at Northport, Mr.
Robertson replied tbat until he returned to tbe city he hnd been unaware of tbeir existence.1 He hoped,
however, that they would soon terminate. It was undoubtedly true that
mining operations were found to be
very   expensive   in   B. C, so much so
worked at the present low values received fm their products, it. was id be
hoped that as the difficulties and low
market values were better understood
that good sense and judgment would
tend to the restoration of profitable
enterprises, and give this portion of
ithe province an opportunity to recov
er from its recent mining depression
whicli has so seriously affected its
reputation in financial centres in the
east and elsewhere. It ib feared, however, that the differences existing between employers and machinists,
which has led to strikes, will considerably delay the delivery of raining
machinery already ordered foi B. C.
before the trouble arose, and so further postpone profitable working.
PREPARED FOR
THE STRUGGLE

OPENING AGRICULTURAL LANDS.
Lower   Fraser   Valley Ileing   Opened
Up For S.-ttloment.
Very few Hritish Columbians realize
the la.ent value of the vast acreage of
valuable agricultural land now lying
open to settlement in the lower Fraser
valley, or the vast, possibilities ol that
region.
That of Hope mountan and between
the Fraser and International boundary
line lie more than a million and a
quarter of acres of land, over half of
which is tillable, while at present
less than fifty thousand acres are under cultivation. For years the settlement and development of tbis district
has been slow owing to the occasional
flooding of portions of tbis land during the annnal rise of the Fraser, and
lack of transportation facilities
These difficulties bave been and are
being obviated. The lands have oil
been dyked by the municipalities assisted by the provincial government'
and the Candaian Pacific railway is
about to construct lines which will
open up these lands fully. Tbe line
will run from Hope to the coast and
with its branches to connect with
New Westminster, Vancouver and.
Victoria, will be some 130 miles in
lengtn, much of which will be built
this year, and it is confidently expected that a steady stream of immigration will set in to the lower mainland
as soon as tbis line is constructed and
tbat the rapid development of the immense agricultural resources of this
favored district will commence. If this
result follows, and it surely will,
British Columbia will soon be able to
feed itself and will no longer have to
depend on Washington,the Territories
and the east for its food supply.
Some idea of the possibilities of
this district may be gained by referring to Surrey municipality, aci-OBS
from New Westminster. Ibis township contains 250,000 acres, half of
which is tillable, but of which only
10,000 acres is cultivated. Surrey's
agricultural produce last year was
valued at $25i,00O, or about $25 for
each acre cultivated. During the same
year British Columiba imported _:;.-
500,000 worth of produce from the
United States and about the same
amount from the east and th. Territories,
The provincial government will encourage the syBtom of small holdings
in opening up this region by refusing
to sell land in large tracts. The
government will supply stumping
powder to tho settlers at cost, and by
other means enable the settlers to re
duce the cost of clearing land to a
minimum. In this regard the 0. P,
R. will co-operate with the government in securing thc early settlement
of these lands bv giving low rates of
transport on goods, effects, and machinery of intending settlers, as well
as on thuir supplies. Low rates will
also be given on shipments of produce. This is in pursuance of a
steadfast policy of the company to aid
the development of the agricultural
resources of British Columbia.

His bitterest  opponents are obliged
to give   Sir Wilfrid Laurier credit for
the happiest, of   apceclies.    And on no
subject is   he happier than on that nf
the   races.    Mr. Hourassa, who   is   a
good deal of a crank, opposed the purchase of  the Plains of   Abraham, and
in doing so gave expression   to   some
objectionable   sentiments.    He is thus
rebuked   by   the   Premier:     "If   my
honorable   friend   will  reflect a   moment   I   am   sure he will change the
views be has just expressed.    He finds
no fault with the   monument   erected
to the memory   of Wolfe   and   Montcalm ; in fact there is   no Canadian   1
am sure   who   v'sits   Quebec and wbo
looks on that monument but feels proud
as a member of the nation that we are
able to so forget our   divisions  as   to
distribute justice to the two men who
lost   their   lives   upon  the   Plains of
Abraham.    (Cheers).    Uut   if   he approves the idea which   ha=   suggested
the erectiou   of   a common monument
to the memory of   Wolfe   and   Montcalm, I ask him why he should object
to consecrating tne ground upon which
they met their death'.'   Is this not the
same idea, the  same thing, and if   he
can look with piide to the monument,
can   he   not   look  with greater pride
upon the very ground   on which the.e
men have died?    ((Ireat cheering).   It
is a noble idea that  in   this   ground,
where our   common fathers shed their
blood, we should bury tbe last of those
divisions to which my hon. friend had
made   allusion, and it is that thought
which   has inspired   those   who   have
taken this matter   up, and  it is   that
thought    which   animates   the   Government, that we should erect another

velopment of Canada as the brightest
spot in the Uritieh Empire at the beginning of the twentieth century."
We shall leave that to the historians,
but that there baa been greai development dining the past three or four
years is too patent a fact to be gain-
sayed. The development has been not
more industrial and commercial than
in that sentiment which is so necessary to the formation of national
character. We are certainly entering
tbo century with all the promise of a
great future.
Some Boundary papers are remarking on the statement emanating from
Nelson, to the effect that the wholesale dealers of the city would be saved undue competition by the failure
to consruct a Coast-Kootenay iinlway.
It would be interesting to Know
which of the wholesalers of Nelson
are afraid of Coast competition for the
Boundary trade. Our closer proximity
gives us an advantage to begin with;
Is this offset or more than offset by
any discrimination in freight rates?
Is the Montreal and Toronto rate to
the Coast less than to Nelson? If
there is reason to fear competition by
giving the Coast cities freer access to
the Boundary country, it would be
well to anew the exact ground on
whicli it is based. The wholesale
dealers themselves arc the only persons who are entitled to speak with
authority on the matter.
Sit, Winchester Brown, the gentleman who tepresents New Westminster In the Provincial Legislature,
modestly confesses that it is not at all
Improbable be may be the successor to
Mr. Turner in the Cabinet. The confession was scarcely necessary as a
matter of information, ns the portfolio
referred to was understood at the time
to be a part of the consideration for
the extraordinary Hop of Mr, Brown,
Mr. Martin, and Mr. MclnneB on the
railway question. Mr. Dunsmuir had
his orders from tbo outside for the
shaping of his policy, and he had to
deal|with the Mr. Browns of the Opposition to insure that it should be successfully launched.
The Toronto Farmers' Sun says that
when the Lib.rals were iu Opposition
the public could rest   assured   that   a
watchdog   was lying   somewhere near
the door of the Tieasnry; but there is
no check now,as the Conservative  Opposition are caieless, and the Liberals
are engaged in wholesale looting. But
why should there   be need to waich a
watchdog ?   Is   it a fact   that profes.
sions in   Oppposition are mere pretences, and   that the   simple   process   of
crossing   from one   side of   the House
to   the other changes a party   from a
watchdog to a boodler?   What a character   to   give   our politicians!    Is it
the popular verdict that it is deserved?
WALL PAPER
Our Victoria correspondent says the
census returns are expected to show
a population of 80,000 for tbat city,
and 24,000 for Vancouver. The rest
of us will now prepare for loud, long,
and indignant protestations chat the
enumerators scamped their work and
did a cruel wrong to those cities. And
there will be demands for a new and
immediate enumeration in both places.
Not even cold fact is to be allowed to
hurt their vanity.
Shakespeare makes ono of his characters advise another to "go and be a
nunnery." Mr. Hourassa, disgusted
with political life, is said to have resolved to go and be a monastery. But
Mr. Hourassa will hardly make so
great a transformation of himself.
Talking of census returns, Toronto
will go into a decline with mortification if Montreal is shown to have a
population of :ili0,00(l, while her own
is but a paltry 282,000.
A LUCKY FINP.
What proved to be a more profitable find than gold happened the other day to a traveller from San Francisco, while at lunch in one of the
leading restaurants in Nelson. He
ordered a portion of Pumpkin pie,
when to his astonishment his nppe-
tltie, which he had lost fifteen years
ago in Arizona, suddenly returned to
hiin, with renewed vigor. Thc pie
had a very solid texture and a rich
mellow flavor. The cook informs us
that it was made from "The Morse
Pumpkin Flour." None other just as
good.    Insist on "The Morse Brand."

"It is reported" that the population
of such and such a place is so and so.
If it is known '-hat the population
is, why not give it out on the authority of the census olliee, and have done
with "reports'1 and all like nonsense?
What possible objection can there be
to giviug out tbis information? Was
it not for thc special purpose of obtaining it that the census was takon,

HI01I WATER IN THE BLOOAN.
���A
���
Considerable   Damage   Done   Ry   the
Freshet.
CarpJnter creek broke through ils
south bank Monday night, several
hundred feet above the Union street
bridge, and, rushing down its old
channel washed away tbe road newly
built leading to the bridge and piled
logs, trees am! boulders high above
the road bed. The approach to the
bridge was Trashed out and the foun-
'dation weakened so that the bridge
sank several inches, says the New
Denver Ledge. Tuesday morning the
water swept over the oth.r ban��� n~d
carried away the appioacb to the
north, leaving the biidgc intact, but
much weakened and with abutments
badly twisted. lioadmaster Moore
with a gang of men secured the bridge
with ropes antl chains to prevent if
possible, the structure being fuither
damaged.
Two weeks ago the ~oik of building tbis bridge was linished. It was
. considered to be tbe strongest and
best constructed of any in this district, but it required only a fe>w hours
for the water to render it useless. Is
cost was in the neighborhood of Shoo.
It will require fully $500 to put it
In shape for tratlic again. Tbe volume of water flowing down the creek
was sufficient to carry everything
with it. Trees four feet through weie
carried along nnd tossed about like
cork, and boulders of enormous
weight thundered down tbe creek bed
into tlie lake.
At Silverton a great amount of
labor bas been expended by its citizens to strengthen the embankment to
prevent Four Mile creek breaking
through and taking its old channel
through the town. The bridge there
is still safe und no damage has been
done by tbe water, though the danger
is not passed. Krom Sandon coino reports of some damage done, and if
the high water continues the outlook
for grei|t destruction of property is
bright. Slocan City has also suffered
from tbe tlood, but not to any great
extent.
Tuesday night the weather turned
colder and tbe Hood subsided. Tbis
was all tbat saved the lower part of
Sandon. Reports from there Tuesday
evening were to the effect that the
flume was breaking and many buildings iu danger of being tlooded, but
Wednesday morning reports were
more favorable. The Humes were
badly damaged and partly washed
away, but all danger, temporarily at
least, bad passed.
DROVE HIM TO POETRY���
A deputation of tbe printers of   Tho
Miner   ollice   waited   upon one of the
reporters   the   other day. whose   copy
was   none   of   the   most legible, and
suggested that he procure a typewriter   so   as   to faciitate tbeir   labors of
setting it (the   copy) up.    Acting   on
this advice the said   obliging reporter
procured a typewriter   (of   the neuter
not of the feminine  gender) with the
following successful result:

Backache. Headache, Nervousness,
Sleeplessness, Melancholy. Fainting

writes M.n. I'liebe Cherley.of Peterson,

could not dress myself, but Electric
Hitters wholly cured me, and. although 73 years old, 1 now am able to
do all my housework." It overcomes
Constipation, Improves Appetite,
gives perfect health, duly Mlc at
