Representatives of All Interests Recognize
That its Establishment Is of Paramount Importance to British
Columbia.
The matter of obtaining a subsidy
for a refinery to treat the matte from
ores mined In Canada is engrossing
the attention of every class of the community, and the sentiment appears to
he growing in strength that on the
success of tne campaign for tho establishment of advanced treatment facilities depends in no small measure tlie
Immediate future of the miring in-
d istry, particularly in the silver-lead
districts. With a view to emphasizing
the importance placed on tho point
The Miner nppends the views of several well known, men each of whom
is representative of au extensive business interest in this district.
Nelson's position ns the commercial
center of the Kootenays makes her
wholesale business of prime importance, lleuce tho views of Percy
Chapman, manager of A. Macdonald
A, Co. 's business und president of the
Nelson Wholesale Merchant's association, on the refinery question will he
rend with interest. Mr. Chapman
says:
"I do not see how the establishment of a leflnery can fail to help promote the Interests of the wholesale
mercantile business, not only In the
piovince of Hritish Columbia, hut
throughout Canada. We recognize
that mining is the staple industry and
backbone of the greater poit'ion of
this province, nnd its advancement is
what the commercial interest! bank
upon. The resolution passed at the
last hoard of trade meeting has deserving claim to the support of lln.se
engaged in tlie wholesale mercantile
business, as our Interests are traceable
to being dependent on the prosperity
of the mining Industry.
"Tbe advancement of mining is as
important to Kootenay und British Columbia as the advancement of farming
ia to Manitoba. It is the natural and
���taple industry and the regulator of
commercial progress. In the Kootenay district mining development has
given to Manitoba and eustern Canada a good western market for their
products; and this alone I think,
merits the support of the eastern provinces to anything that will help and
further the mining interests in this
country.
"There can be no doubt that the
establishing of u refinery means extensive advancement in lead mining
operations, and those now engaged in
that industry rightly set forth that
lead mining has supported the population of a large area of of the Kootenay districts. The successful operation of these mines means the incoming of capital, the opening up of other properties, the employment of a
greater population, the building up of
new towns���commercial growth. On
the other hand, the closing down of
any of these developed properties
means stagnation to business in different districts, which cannot help but
be felt by the wholesale trade and in
turn by the producer in other provinces, thus leading to commercial decline. Consequently, the lead mine
owners should not only have tho support of the local wholesale men but
are entitled to the support of the
wholesale commercial interests of all
provinces."
W. IS. Zwiclry, manager of the
Payne mine and \ esident of the Sandon Mine Owners' association, takes a
strong stand on the refinery question :
"Tne mining, business and working
men of Sandon arc united on tlie point
that the establishment of a refinery
will be of Inestimable value iu promoting the prosperity of the conn
try," he says, and continues: "The
assurance of > a muiket for silver-lead
bullion smelted in Hritish Columbia
will stimulate the production of sil-
v��r lend ores, Under existing .ircuin-
stances a number of properties decline
to sell their output at the ruling
prices, and one of the factors which
has militated against a profitable
price for these ores is thai
the smelters claim that the charges
for refining at the American refineries ure such that the present charges
for smelting must he maintained if
smelting is to be continued on a profitable basis. (liven a refinery on the
Canadian side of the line, which will
take the matte produced by Canadian
smelters, and tbe latter will bu in a
position to reduce their charges,thereby enabling a number of properties
to operate which are not now able to
work, it is claimed, at a profit. Another feature which the offor of a government subsidy would secure is that
the inducement would undoubtedly
have the effect of forcing the Ameri
can refineries to reduce their charges
by way of discouraging the establishment of a Canadian refinery ; und even
If the latter enterprise did not go
through, the lesult achieved would be
approximately the same. We want
twiditions which nil!   make it an ob
ject for tho countiy to produce the
maximum amount of ore; and I know
of no means to bring about these conditions more rapidly and thoroughly
that the providing of facilities for
handling British Columbia silver-lead
ores without the necessity of sending
them across tho border. As to whether or not the subsidy asked is reasonable, I am unable to venture a statement from personal investigation ; but
men who have mode a special study of
this feature of the proposition are unanimously of opinion that tlie bounty
suggested is quite within the bounds
of reason nnd nothing more than is
fair in view of the extent to which the
Federal government has subsidized
the maritime steel industry."
Thomas S. Mcl'herson, vice president of the Nelson Retail Merchant's
association, discusses tho question
from tho standpoint of the business
men engaged in tbe retail trade. He
says: "I am satisfied that the retailers individually are watching the situation with keen interest, although
no action lias been taken ns nn organization. Circumstances which tend to
retard the development of the country directly affect the retail merchants
who arc, perhaps, in closer touch
with the uctual working conditions
than any other element of the community. Wo feel that the maintenance of business in this district depends on the staple industry���mining
���being placed in an independent position in respect to the smelting and
refining of tlie mineral output. This
independence can never be assured so
long as tho mines depend on our
Aineiiean cousins for the treatment of
their ores, and the oniy solution I
can imagine is to give tlie mining industry the smelting and refining facilities necessary to the successful operation of tho industry. There can be
110 doubt on the point o[ the refinery
being an essential feature of the country's development, as well as of the
maintenance of its present condition,
nnd merchants generally are undivided
In support of the proposition to subsidize the industry. Another feature
which appeals to the retailers Is that
the establishment of n refinery would
place in circulation in the shape of
wages a very large additional sum
of money, a fact which will materially assist the extension of retail business."
SECURES    A    CAPTAINCY
GEORGE   S.   BEER   GETS  A   COMMISSION IN THE BADEN-
POWELL POLICE.
BE
LEFT    THIS   MORNINU   FOR
OTTAWA   TO   JOIN   HIS
REGIMENT.
Lieutenant Geoige S. Beer was notified yesterday by the adjutant-general
of the Canadian militia that His Excellency the governor-general hnd been
pleased to grant him a commission us
captain iu tlie Baden-Powell constabulary. Mr Beer left this morning for
the cap!-ml to join the regiment,which
Sals on Friday next for Africa R.
li. Eaton, a Nelson man who left for
Africa with the Canadiau Mounted
Rifles, has secured a commission as:
second lieutenant in the same regiment, so that Nelson will be represented by almost forty men in the latest colonial addition to the Imperial
forces in Africa.
Mr. Beer only received the notification of his appointment yesterday
morning and had but a few hours to
prepare fur his journey. A good share
of tlie balance of the day was passed
in receiving the congratulations of a
host of friends. It had been known
for beveral days that Mr. Beer was
practically assured of a commission in
the corps, but tbe best he had expected was the post of junior subaltern or
first lieutenant at most. The news of
his appointment ns enptnin came as a
gratifying surprise to Mr. Beer personally and to his friends as well.
The position is one of very considerable responsibility, and carries a salary of some 83,0"0 per annum with
perquisites of a substantial nature.
The appointment is a tribute to the
merit of Mr.Beei's scivices in connection with the recruiting of the various contingonts sent out from Canada,
and   in this respect   was well earned.
When tho first Contingent wns rais-
ed, Mr.Boer was identified with Major
Hodgins in the recruiting in this dis-
tirct. At tho time Hie second contingent left, Mr. Beer had full charge of
the recruiting, and when the Strathcona's were recruited the bulk of the
work also fell on his shoulders. Lnt?r
ii squad of men were sent to tbe coast
for duty In the provisional garrison
regiment, and Mr. Beer had all the
work to do in this connection. For
tlie recruiting of the Baden-Powell
police he was appointed special officer,
and the quota of 00 men sent fiom
the district under his charge was one
of the finest squads which ever left
the west for military duty. Thut
these facts were appreciated is evidenced by the rank to which he Is gazetted on joining the corps.
Mr. Beer left on this morning's
boat for the east. As the regiment
sails on the 32nd he will barely have
time to join before the embarkation.
MrB. Beer will follow him to Africa
at an early date.
The members of the Nelson Rifle
company gave Lieutenant Beer a
li.arty send-off last night. During
his connection with the corps as pri
vate in the rear rank, non-commissioned officer and officer commanding
Mr. Beer has labored to promote the
snecess of the company, and much of
the popularity which the company
has enjoyed has been due to his unceasing efforts to secure efficiency and
good feeling among the members.
Bast night the company turned out in
uniform under command of Color-Sergeant George M. Phillips, who will be
in command pending the appointment
of II. E. Macdonnel as captain. The
line of march was taken to the city
wharf at 10 o'clock. Three members
of the band were ill, hence the organ
ization could not parade, but Secretary .1. II. Robie represented the
bandsmen and expressed to Mr. Beer
on behalf of the bandsmen their warm
wishes for his prosperity in the profession of arms.
At the wharf, the company lined up
and_cheered enthusiastically for the
departing officer and the cheers were
swelled by the voices of a score or
more civilian friends who had joined
the parade. Afterwards the militiamen pressed forward to shako hands
with Mr. Beer. Tlie send-off, while
not as boisterous as has been seen in
Nelson, lucked nothing in respect to
ils hearty good will.
. The list of officers gazetted to the
constabulary is as follows:

A YUKON SENSATION.
Governor Ogilvie  Drops a Hint About
a Gigantic Swindle.
Seattle, March 10.���A sensation
has been caused in Dawson City by a
statement made by Governor Ogilvie
at a meeting of the Yukon council on
March S, when he announced he had
been informed that at a recent banquet an official in a high position
had declared that the governor and
I). Mntheson. a contractor, had worked together in carrying out a gigantic
swindle. The governor said that he
would collect evidence and charge the
official with criminal libel.
Another charge waB made at the
same council meeting. The entire
council was charged with blackmail
by a Mrs. McConncll, who conducts a
hotel at Dawson. She says that the
council and Mntheson connived| together to ruin her business out of a
desire for personal gain. Gold Commissioner Senklcr has filed a libel
suit against Mrs. McConnell. The
charges have stirred up great excite
ment in the city.

RECORD AGAIN BROKEN.
Output at Rossland Reaches n Total of
9,174 Tons,
Rossland, March 10.���Again did the
Rossland mines break the record this
week, when the shipments icached a
total of 0,174 tons. The corrected
returns for last "veek, were 9,018 tons,
and this shows thut there were. 159
more tons sent out this week than
Inst.
The shippers were ns follows: Le
Roi, 4,970 tons; Centre Star, 2,197;
War Engle, 744; Le Roi No. 2, 729;
Rossland Great Western, 420; Iron
Mask, 108; total, 9,174.
The Evening Star, Velvet and Portland would have shipped during the
week, but the thawing weather has
softened the roads so that loads cannot
be hauled over them and they will
not resume until the warm weather
makes it possible to have dry and firm
highways.
There were no special developments
during the week, nnd the mines are
continuing along steadily extracting
ore and developing ore bodies.

nified and unostentatious. The arrangements for the services tomorrow
have been practically completed In
detail. The church has been richly
hut simply decornlod,with limpings of
black and vrhitc and of tbe American
flag. Owing to the limited capacity
of the church, which will seat only
about 1,000 and because of the great
demand for seats, the committee on
arrangements found it necessary to
announce that admission to the church
would be to the friends of the family
by card.
RAILWAY ROW
GROWS WARM
The latest development of the refinery question is that a syndicate of
capitalists, said to have their headquarters in Montreal, now have an
expert mining nnd induction man in
the Kootenays looking over the field
with a view of reporting on the prospects for the successful operation of a
refinery. This gentleman, E. J. Mac-
kny, of Montreal, Was in Nelson yes-
terday,leaving by this morning's boat
for Maclcod where he will meet one of
his principals, who is now en route
west. On the tenor of M. Macaky's
report will depend the action of the
syndicate.
When approached on the subject at
the Hotel Phair yesterday Mr. Muckny
wus reluctant to give details of the
proposition, and was particularly reticent as to the identity of tho parties
in whose interests he had visited the
Kootenays, remarking that if the proposition advanced to the practical
stage full particulars would be.divulg-
ed in ample time. He admitted, however, that his mission waB to go into
the conditions governing the production of silver-lead ores In British "o-
lumbia for the purpose of determining
the'prospects   for the establishment of
smelter. "My people,' he continued, "have an abundance of capital
for this purpose, and, so far as 1 am
aware, aro not looking for a subsidy
from nny source. If they deoide to
go into the refining business they
will first satisfy themselves thotlthere.
is ah opening for the enterprise, and"
tills point being settled, will not loon
for outside assistance but depend on
their own resources to make the industry a success."
When asked what the syndicate
would regard as essentials toward inducing them to go in for the refinery,
Mr.Mackay stated that a score of conditions entered into their calculations
but that he preferred not to discuss
these at this stage. Asked if any refinery his principals might erect
would be ' located in the Kootenays,
Mi. Mackay stated that he was not in
a position to commit himself on the
point in question but that so far as he
was aware, the syndicate purposed locating within easy reach of the silver-
lead producing camps. Up to the present time he bad not had the time to
go into the question at any great
length but within the next few
weeks, nil the points to be investigated would be gone into fully and the
result would be determined by the
nature of the information elicited.

AUTHORITIES       WOULD       MUCH
RATHER SEE  HIM KILLED
IN ACTION.
London, March 10.���Whatever the
result of the peace negotiations between General Kitchener and General
Botha, it is tolerably certain that the
rumors of the inclusion of General Dewet in any form of amnesty are not
based on fact. General Kitchener's
personal views of the Bo��r leader are
not known in Pall Mall, but if the
war oflice is eousulted, the officials
there would rather see Dewet killed
in action than -taken alive.
One of the officials responsible for
the direction of Hie affairs of the army
said to a representative of the Associated Press: "I cannot see how Kitchener can possibly accept Dewet's surrender. If he ever gets him he will
be obliged to try him for his recent
alleged murder of prisoners. I have
no doubt that the verdict of cither a
military or a civil court would be
death; and if such a verdict should be
carried out there would be a horrible
howl on the continent and in America. And, indeed, one would be sorry
to see such a brave fighter meet such
an end. Therefore, we can only hope
Dewet will either be let out of the
country or shot in battle.

THE   KAISER'S   DOMAIN.
Pro-
In the Reichstag���Women    Will
test���Emperor Recovering.
Berlin, Marcli 10.���This week's
Reichstag doings wero interesting.
The colonial budget discussions showed again tbat the German colonies,
hitherto have been unenviable prop
erty, several of them exhibiting steadily decreasing trade with Germany,
especially the largest of all, nuinel)
German East Africa, whicli is twice
the size of Germany, but its trade to
Gremany was only three million
marks in 1800, although the empire
pays fourteen million marks for its administration, partly for quelling constant uprlsinge. The KameroonB territory alone seems to more than cover
the expenses.
There is a movemeut on fdot among
Germau women to issue a gigantic
protest against tlie threatened increase
of agricultural duties as rendering the
necessaries of lifejmuch higher, especially for tlie poorer classes, which
comprises 87 per cent of the whole nn-
tlun. A call issued at Dresden by the
must noted women leaders has already
received millions of signatures.
Emperor William is slowly but
surely recovering but it is possible
that ten days more may elapse before
he is able to appear in public. His
Majesty received General Von Huncke.
chief of the military cabinet, Dr.
I.ucaniis, chief of the civil club, Count
Von Below and other intimates dully.
The pains from which the empeior
suffered have subsided.
THE ALLIED   TROOPS   IN CHINA.
04,000   Men   All   Told With Germans
In the   Majority.
Berlin, Marcli 10.���In the Reichstag
today the minister of war, General
Von dossier, said Count Von Walder-
scc commanded about 04,000 men including 17,1500 Germans, U,050 French,
18,850 British, 9.000 Russians, 0,0(10
Japanese, 2,350 Italians, 1,600 Ameri
cans and 380 Austrian.,   Brigandage
in China, he added, hail considerably
decreased in consequence of the intervention of the foreign troops.
General Von Waldersoc reported, the
minister continued, that the su called
Hun letters.were hugely fantastic exaggerations. Peaceable populations
were treated witli leniency hut uiau-
rauders and Boxers were rigorously
suppressed. The assertion that sixty
Chinese soldiers sent to light Boxers
had been shot was a piece of mendacity on the part of a mandarin who
desired to set the alleged shooting
against a war contribution levied ou
him.
Iliiving Count Von Wftldersec's
statements, tho minister said, he
would take criminal proceedings
against certain newspapers. Ilerr
Uichter objected to Great Britain being inadequately represented by
troops in China while she had' the
greatest interests in that country. He
said that only Germans seemed to be
employed in the expeditions. General
Vonheim replied that the Hritish had
reserves at Hong Kong and could_also
draw on India, and pointed out "ilint
the American, French, Italians and
Austrinns participated In the expeditions. The most striking feature during Friday's and today's China debate
in the Reichstag was the unanimously
manifsted feeling of weariness over
"the China adventure. ' It was a regular chorus of "let ns get out from
China."

ASTOUNDING   PHILANTHROPY.
It Is doubtful if there is any human
being living today   around whom ecu
ters   more universal interest than An
drew Carnegie, the  great Scotch phil-
-nnthropist.    The marvellous   generos
ity he has shown   during the past few ,
weeks will command the attention   of
the whole   world.    Within two   days,
previous   to his departure from America for Europe, he gave away 810.000.-
000��� 85,000,000 to benefit   employes of
tbe Carnegie steel   works and 88,000,-
iiiiii to establish public libraries in the
city of New York.    This is   astonishing miniilicence ; and,   aside from the
benefit which will result to those who
will   reap   direct   advantage from the
monster donations, it is interesting to
speculate   what will   bo   the effect of
his marvellous  exhibition   of philan-
throphy upon tbe wealthy men of   the
koi ill at large.    It cannot fail to have
a profound effect; and it   is   conceivable that history may heienfter   place
tbe name of Carnegie among the great
benefactors of   the   human   race���not
only in the sense that he gave largely
of his means, but   that   he so lived as
to set a glowing example to be followed by all who have been so fortunate as
to amass great wealth.    His action in
thus disposing for public benefit of   a
great   portion   of   the huge wealth he
has amassed is sure to be followed   by
other   large   capitalists,    and  then it
will   be   seen   that ho   builded wiser
than he   knew   when   he   determined
upon   his   remarkable   acts of philan-1
thopy.    But does it not   appear, when !
giving   consideration to this   subject,
that it has been clearly shown   by tbe
fact that such men as   Carnegie   havo
been able in a few years to amass   almost Countless   wealth, that   capital,
ud'oitly managed, doubles   itself over
and over again���in   other words, tbat
when   an   individual   has   acquired a
certain large   sum   of   money, he may
go on piling up millions until be tiros
of   the   pastime?   It   would seem so.
Supposing Carnegie chose to continue
making   money and  hoarding it.   He
might go on until death put an end to
his labors, and then his task might be
taken up by his heirs.   Nothing seems
clearer   than   tho     fact   that   money
makes money : and one effect of Carnegie's   astonishing    philanthiopy   will
surely be to draw attention   to the incalculable   power   possessed   by   men
who have amassed wealth in directing
the affairs and influencing   the conditions of tho human race.
THE STUATIICONA HORSE.
Without placing   ttovfleli   In as bmi a
positlou   financially   as under this ar-
raugeiuent.    Manitoba could.   1 think;
absolutely own a railway   syslein eon
neeting   the   different sections of   the
province   with Lake Superior,    Before
many years such   u   system  would return a large   profit and   give the government a revenue   for   ordinary pur
poses. Under this alratiReuient, while
tlie government assumes a   very heavy
liability,     tlie     Canadian      Northern
makes all the   profit.    Mr. Robltn has
well    pointed   out   that    redaction in
rates can only lie   obtained   by incurring llit danger of the   province being
called on to pay under its   guarantee
This is almost sule to be the   case   in
the early days of the road's operations,
anil there is no  provision    for   repay
ment   oat   of    subsequent    profits.   It
seems   to   me   it   would   be better to
give the shipper of wheat a bonus   direct, so as to reduce   Ills freight  rati
and thus avoid any rake-off.      A Mr]
ou8 objection   to this arrangement
the great interest it will give tho Canadian Northern in   elections in Manitoba.    One of the main reasons why 1
have adopted the principle   of government ownership of  railways, is to get
railway corporations out.   of        "'-
No greater danger   to   public   liberty
exists today   than this interference iu
elections, and this bargain   will make
the Canadian  Northern the  chief factor in all political   contests*l0 the future.    They will have the   profit   they
are making   under   the   arrangements
to buy a general election for the party
which    is   prepared   to   do    most   for
them. 1 do not look for very   effective
control of rates  under  such   circumstances. I would consider tho C. P. R.
proposals     much    preferable   on   the
ground that the   province is asked   to
undertake practically no liability, and
a definite reduction in freight rates is
seemed.  I sincerely hope that the legislature will not ratify the agreement.
I say this, not because 1   wish   to   see
the opposition returned   to power, but
because I feel that   tlie   province   will
be   crippled for years lo come   if   the
bargain becomes law."

If Britain and Russia don't come

Dealing   with   the   question,   what
shall be done with the King'*  colors.
presented   to   Strathcona's   Ilorso   by
King Edward, the Montreal Star puts
forward the suggestion tbat tbe   regiment should not   be disbanded, as   no
better monument to   Lord   Strathcona
eould be devised than tho perpetuation
of the   Strathcona   Horse.   Tlie   Stai
argnes that in time uf   peace the regi
ment can perform   police   duties, such
as those   of   the   Northwest   Mounted
Police, a body   of   men which bas accomplished   wonders   in   maintaining
law and ordor in the vast   Northwest.
American   travellers   have   jften   expressed   astonishment   at   the orderly
state of society in   our   Northwest   as
compaiod with tbat   which   prevailed
in their own   Nortlnvest at the   same
stage of development, and   they attii-
bate   the   difference    largely    to   the
Northwest     Mounted       Police.    Tbe
Strathcoua Ilorso was recruited largely from   Northwest    Mounted   Police,
and there is no doubt tbat if the corps
weie kept   up   it    wonld   do   equally
good service to the country. The coun-
tiy opened   np   for   settlement iu the
Northwest   and   British    Columbia is
increasing and the   addition of such a
corps as the Strathcona   Ilorso   to the
police force would make it   none   too
large.  If there should ever boa war in
defence of Canada or  the   Empire,   it
would be a fine thing to have a   regiment with such historic-ssoc'ations as
this one would   hare   if   perpetuated.
Much of   tlie   success   of the   Hritish
army In the past bas lieen due to   tlie
tact tbat each of tho crack   regiments
haa a history. The colors proseutod hy
King Kdward VII.    should bo    in   the
possession   of   the   Strathcona   Ilorso
long after tho   present   generation   of
Canadians have passed away.
MAKTIN TAKES A HAND.
Mr. Joseph Martin has taken a
hand in tbe Manitoba railway controversy. He declares that tho contract
made by tho Manitoba government
embodies all the liability of government ownership, together with some
of the worst features of private ownership. He says. In a letter to tho
Winnipeg Tribune: "I believe that
the solution of tbe railway problem
lies in government ownership, and
am glad to notice tbat Mr. Roblin _
bargain is defended on the ground
that tends in that diiection, thus recognizing the principle to be sound.
It seems to me, however, that the suggested arrangement in vol von all the
disadvantages of government ownership and very little of its advantages.
An Important step towards Canada's
ultimate scheme of national defence is
made In the determination of the government to establish an army service
corps.

gonerals_to discuss the situation. If

London, March Hi.���Advices received from Mengu, I'gunda, nays there

impressive "presence. He was the
principal Islam teacher of the former
