of dynamite caused gas to ignite and
since that time the mine has been
burning. All the air channels were
closed and it was hoped that tbe
flames could be sinotbored. This
morning 20 men entered the mine to

Last Year Was $69,407.-   '
031.
Leaving the Yukon Out the
Increase Was 37 per
Cent.
Steamers  ln  Collision  and
the Waesland Goes
Down.
Ottawa, March (!.���A summary of
tho mineral production of Canada for
the year 1901 has been prepared by the
geological department. The fotal mineral production for the year was $09,-
407,031, as compared with ?04,488,0!17
in the year previous, or a total increase of (4,918,904, nearly five millions. In 181)5 the total mineral production was a little ovor twenty million dollars.
The entire gold production Is valued
at $24,402,222, of whieh the Yukon
gold fields contributed if 18,000,000.
Of copper theie was $0,(100,104; pig
iron, from Caadian ore, $1,121,113,lead,
$2,19!),781: nickel, $4,604,583j silver,
1(2,0113,008, and iron ore exports, $702,-
284. These, with the gold production,
makes a total $42,824,008 metallic
production. There was $20,282,333
non-motalic, and $300,000 products not
returned, wh'cn, added to the non-
metallic makes, mado a total production of $00,407,031.
Coal production is valued at $14,-
071,122; coke. 81,204,360; petroleum,
8053,415, asbestos, 81,180,434, and
building material, $4,820,000.
Notwithstanding a doorcase in the
gold output over 1000, the iucrease in
the total production is equivalent to 8
per cent. There was a decrease of
over four millions in the gold output
from tlie Yukon, but in llritish Columbia there was an increase of one million dollars. There was a falling off
iu the lead production over twenty
per cent.
Leaving the Yukon district out of
consideration, th�� permanent metal
mining industries show an increase
of nearly 37 per cent..notwithstanding
the falling off in the load production.
The increase in pig iron was 133 per
cent.; of copper, 115 per cent. ; nickel,
38 per cent.; asbestos 58 per cent.,
and coke, 04 per cent.
In the production of pig iron in
Canadian furnaces, an incroase of 184
pei cent, is recorded. This increase
is due largely to the operating of the
Dominion Iron and Steel company at
Sydney, N, S. ln steel furnaces whicb
are not included in tbe general table,
there was made 41,948 tons of steel
ingots.

line steamer Waesland, Capt. Hatfield,
fiom Liverpool, March 5, for Philadelphia, and the British steamship
Harmindes, Capt. Ponton, from Para.
Feb. 23, for Li'.eipool, met iti collision
tonight off Holyhead. Tbu Waesland
sank. Uor passengers and orew were
saved.
The Harmcnides rescued the passengers and crew of the Waesland and
is bringing them to Liverpool. Tugs
have been sent fiom Liverpool to meet
the Ilaimonides. The Waesland
carried 32 cabin and 82 steerage
passengers.
The loss of the Waesland waa due to
the dense fog which enveloped tbe
Irish channel uuring the entire duy,
seriously delaying all vessels.
Liverpoo', March 7.���The disaster to
th3 Waasland only became known late
last night. The agents of the steamer
received a telegram from Capt. Apfeld
which was bunded in at Almwich,
a little place near Anglesey. This
telegram briefly announced tho fact of
the disaster and did not give details
or exp'anation how tho collision
occurred. Fifty-three ofthe passengers
.ind crew of tbe Waesland arrived at
Liveproul on board the Ilermonides at
3.30 this morning. Tbey were received
by tbe agents of the American line
here and were quartered at various
hotels. The collision occurred in a
thick fog at half past 11 p. m. on
Wednesday when the Waesland was
about 40 miles southwest of Holyhead.
The Hermonfdes struck tho Waesland amidships and there was a terrible Bboek, Most of tbe Waesland's
passengers had retired for tha night.
Perfect order and discipline prevailed.
The crew of the steamer rapidly
turned the passengers out and succeeded in assuring them that their
lives wero sale. The passengers were
greatly influenced by the coolness of
the crew and obeyed instructions
willingly and quickly
Tbe Waesland's wore quickly got
out and in less than half an hour tbe
entire ship's company had been transferred to tbe Hermonides. Unfortunately two lives were lost. The dead
are a steerage passenger named
Dangerfield, and a child named Elsio
Imraott, the daughter of a cabin
passenger.
province, with the municipal police,
joined In tho pursuit. Thoro aro uot
300 arms in tbe hands of the insurgents and Ladrones in tho entire {
Luzon island today. This number is
reduced daily by suirenders, captures
or casualties. Tho constabulary witb
the aid of Trias, govornor of Cavite,
and the nativo police, during the last
two weeks, have routed the Ladrone
bands existing in Cavite for many
years, capturing and receiving by surrender over 100 arms.
The important feature is that the
sentiment among the inhabitants is
hostile to the Ladrones and insurgents. All other organized provinces
aro quiet. The situation was never so
good since the American occupation
and very encouraging, notwithstanding persistent attempts to create a
contrary impression.
Govornor Taft presented tho despatch to tbo Houso Insular committee
today, when tho questi on on tho re-
versos came up.

(SPECIAL TO THE IIIM-'.It.)
Victoria, March (i.-The houso ia
holding a night sitting tonight, presumably at the instance of the governmont to prevent the oppositions members from attending E. V. (Indwell's
meeting. Hon. R. Mcliiide bus a
motion before the house asking the
government to table forthwith all
telegrams and other data bearing on
tbe alleged contract wilh Mackenzie
and Mann, and this will probably
reach a vote as the government refuses
to disclose the documents. Kailier in
the day a motion made by McBrido
asking the government to issue a writ
forthwith for the vacancy in North
Victoria was defeated hy a straight
party vote of 19 to 10.
At tonigfit's session the opposition
continued its demands for telegrams
bearing on tile Canada Northern contract. R. t). Tatlow asked if Grren-
sh'elds, who is pushing tho Beheme,
was tbe some man who wus described
by Col. Prior as making hundieds ot
thousands of dollars out of ouo of the
most disgraceful railway deals in the
history of Canada, naming tbo Drum -
mond county deal. Tatlow followed
this up with a charge against tho
premier that he had a side agreement
with Mackenzie and Maun whtrehy ho
sold his Cotuox and Capo Scott
charter.
This the premier fulled to deny. Mr.
Dunsmuir finally moved that tbe
house adjourn until Tuesday and this
elicited a storm of protest frum tne
opposition, who charge the government with inability to meet tho contention of tbe opposition and witli
adjoining to avoid an exposure of tho
government. Tho government carried
its point, however, and tbe house adjourned, all the opposition members
going to tbe theatre, where Ilodwell
was holding one of tho biggest meetings in the history ot the city. Here
the government's course was used
with gieat effect by the speakers and
the general feeling now is that Col.
Prior's defeat is certain and the government's fate is involved in thut ot
Prior.
ENCOURAGING REPORTS.
Governor Taft Reports the Situation
in Philippines Never Bettor.
Washington, March 6.���Governor
Taft has reoeived the following cable
dispatch from acting governor Wright
of the Philippines in rcsponso to an
inquiry as to recently reported mili-
taiy reverses.
The facts are : Bell's operations in
Laguna drove a band of insurgents in
the Morong about 25 milos from
Manila in a line. A small band of
Ladrones, driven frum Cavite by the
constabulary, joined them. Twenty-
five of the constabulary under a native
sergeant attacked them but on account
of having only 15 rounds of ammunition each, thoy soon exhausted it,
and weie forced to retire without loss.
Assistant Chief Atkinson, of tlio constabulary, with reinforcements, immediately took chargo and drove the
band with loss to the latter, into
Laguna. Tlie inhabitants of Rizal
provinoe havo been giving information and assisting tho enemy ae much
as possible.     Flories, governor of the

PRESERVATION OF GAME.
Thore is a necessity for a more
stringest enforcement of tho game
lawB, as if the destruction is kept up
at its presont rate there will be but
little of it to take care of. A correspondent who resides on Lower
Arrow lake pointed out somo time
sinoe how the game is being destroyed
in that vicinity by hunters who come
principally from the other side of the
line. The provincial police are
watching t'jese hunters Bnd nre seeing
to lt that the game laws are being
observed. They cannot be every where
however, as the territory which they
have to cover is so large and despite
the careful watch which they keep the
game is destroyed by those who hunt
principally for tha sake of tlio pelts of
the animals they kill. Wolves and
coyotes play havoc with the deer, elk
and caribou, and the bounty ou the
scalps ot the former should be
raised so that marc of them may be
destroyed. The preservation of game
is something which the tonristj association can take up and materially
assist in.
The Calgary Herald has the following ou the question of the preservation of gamo: "The Herald haa had
occasion in previous issues to refer to
the fact that If some radical departure
in tha method ot game preservation
wero not at once made, it will only be
a few years before the larger animals
indigenous to the country will be
entirely extermnated. In the nearer
peaks of the Rockies, it is now almost
impossible for the most assiduous
hunters to catoh a glimpse of the
splendid mountain sheep that not so
many years ago could be seen with
comparative ease. Hlack tailed deer
have fled away to the Northern solitudes, while tho moose that still
remain in the country north of Calgary
and west of the C. arid E. lino are
being ruthlessly slaughteicd by wandering bands ol Indians, lt will therefore ho understood that unless more
stringent regulations are soon put in
force, tho larger game of Western
Canada will be wiped out of existence
o completely as the buffalo.
"There is,however, no use of passing
regulations at arc not enforced. There
are saviog clauses to most of tho provisions of the game laws which nullify
their effect. Indians are practically
exempted fiom the operation ot these
regnatinns, and they are tho most
dangerous enemies of the big game of
tbe country. The white hunter, with
his mudern breech loading rille and
elaborate Camping outfit, does not
cause one-tenth of the destruction that
the Indian does with his antiquated
muzzle loader. The white man usually
hunts for sport; the Indiana to gratify
a love of slaughtci, and incidentally
for food. Assisted hy all the members
of his family, he will establish a cordon round u herd of antelope, and
drive them into some ravine where
the deep snow prevents their escape,
and commence an indiscriminate
slaughter. Everything is Bsli that
comes to the Indian's net. He is just
as glad to kill the "unseasonable
doe." as the "stag of ten," and what
he cannot eat ho leaves for the wolves
anil oayotes.
"There aie a great ninny sportsmen
in Alberta, and it seems a pity that
some association is not formed at
once, having for it objects the preservation of giiiue.
"Representations could he mado to
tbo Government to see that the Indians
are prevented from hunting out of
season, and, if necessary, their rations
conld be increased and strictures might
he placed also upon tho white pot
hunters, A sportsmen's association, if
composed of representative men,should
rapidly obtain a   bearing at the hands
of the Government, nnd   their recommendations attended <o,"
WILL CONCENTRATE ITS ORE.
It inthe intention of the War Eagle
Mining Co., according'to an interview
recently had with T. U. ISlackstouk in
Toronto, to erect a milling and concentrating plant npon its property.
When this is accomplished there is no
doubt, Mr.Blackstook says, that the $f>
ore in the mine, which has hitherto
been of too low a grade, to be shipped,
can be marketed at a profit. It is
Known that the War Eagle Co. has
for a long time intended to erect a
onceiitrnting plant and the plans and
specifications have been prepared for
some liltie time, hoc there -as a
hitch as to the water supply.
Theie is a great deal of low grade
silicious ore iu the Rosuland camp
which is amendable to concentration
and can be concentrated four and five
into one, it is thought, with bnt a
small percentage of loss. The late
Captain Ball, when he was manager
of the Le Roi, made some experiments
in this direction which were successful. The reduction plant at Silica,
which is provided with a combination
concentrating and the cyaniding plant,
has successfully reduced considerable
of tbe silicious ores oi the Rossland
camp,and were it not lor thc fact that
the Northport smelter reduced the rale
for tho smelting of Rossland ores to
Ift.'iO per ton, the plant would be constantly employed. Of course the heavy
sulphide and pyrrhotite ores cannot be
handled to advantage in a concentrator, as there is little or no gacgue in
them. If the War Eagle carries out
its iutentions, and erects a concentrating mill it is certain that a new era
of prosperity will opeu for tho Rossland camp as it will bring within the
pay zone many hundreds of thousands
of tons of ore which hitherto could
not be toadied. If the enterprise of
the War Eagle is successful the Le
Roi, Centre Slar Rossland Great
Western aud other mines there will
follow its exapmle. All of which
will redound to the advantage of the
big copper-gold camp.
Thus it is and will bo that one by
one the problems of making the lower
grade ores of the Kootenays pay are
being solved, and tho importance of
thc section as a great mininsg center
is at the same time being more
plainly made manifest.

POPULAR PING-PONG.
The fascinating game of ping pong
has conquered Nelson, as it has many
other places, and it now has so many
devotees that a tournament which is
to last three days will materialize in
a few days. It is simply a modification of lawn tennis that cau be
played indoors and in a mach smaller
space. To show how great the demand
for the materials which are used in
tho game is it may be stated tbat in
Urantham in England there is a factory which is Uopt in operation night
and day which turns out 4,320,000
ping-pong balls aweek. These balls
are partly marketed in Great Britain
and the remainder is shipped to other
countries. There never was a game
which sprung so quickly into popular
favor. Throughout Great Britain it
has become so popular that all other
pastimes are eclipsed by it. Tournaments are of froqnent occurrence and
society bets its small change on the
rosults. The game has spread to Canada, the United States and to other
countries, until no home is complete
without it. The question is will it
simply be tho fad of the hour or will
it bo adopted as a permanent institution? It certainly has met with extraordinary public favoi and it seems
to have qualities which will cause
people to adopt it for all time as ono
of their pastimes.
EDITORIAL NOTE?.
It is now stated that it is the intention of King Edward to confer upon
the Mikado of Japan the order of the
garter. The Earl of Ahcrcoru his been
selected to go to Tokio to bestow the
order on the Japanese rulor. The
object sought is to give emphasis to
thc reeent treaty entered into betweoD
Great lirtiain and Japan. The
Mikado, when the order is conferred
upon him, will have the unique distinction of being the only non-Chris-
taiu Asiatic invested with this much
coveted honor.

mnrks: "The organizing faculty has
at times in English history been displayed with conspicuous ability and
has heen fruitful of large results foi

statesmen who were reraarakblo ior

Whig leader during the stormy period
of Queen Anne's reipn was gifted
with it in the highest degree, and his
party and English liberties owe muoh
to tlio work he accomplished. With a

The New Denver.Lodge says the oie
in tho lower workings of the Payno is
improving.
The Truo Blue at Kaslo, is shipping
r,dO sacks of copper oro that is said to
run 18 per cent copper.
The New Denver Ledge says that
pending a meeting of the company in
Loudon, the Bosun shut down on Friday ol last woek. Operations will be
resumed in a short timo whon a compressor will bo installed and othor improvements mace. The Bosun) last
month shipped 200 tons of ore. Of this
100 tons wus zinc ore which was sent
to Antwerp.
It is reported that the force at, the
Whitewater iB to be increased to 150
men.
Some of the ore cf tho Silver Glance
runs as high as l,00i) ounces in silver
tr the ton, says the Ledge of Now
Denver. Three cars have been shipped
within two months.
II. R. Warden superintendent of the
Silver Cup, was in town yesterday on
business in connection with the housing of the Silver Cup ore. He says
there is now in the warehouse 11,000
sacks, which on the basis of 18 sacks
to the ton, figures out at -about 010
tors, says the Trout Lako Topic. This
has beeu the output since November
last. With the oro in transit and that
which niu be taken dowu before
sleighing breaks up, tho chances are
there will bo of Silver Cup ore at
Trout Lake, something over SOO tons.
Tho valuo of this ore figured at $145 a
ton is Sllti.OOO. Not a bad record for
a winter's work for one mine.
The Nettie L. people have down
about 140 tons and the chances aie that
before sleighing breaks up this will
be increased by another 10Q tons, a
total in nil of 240 tons. Figured at
$125 gross a ton this will give a value
of $30,200. The chances are the
Nettie L. people would have made a
much better showing this winter, but
thoy had several hundred feet of dead
work lo do before they conld mino ore
as economically as tliey wished to.
Last winter they had lo raise all tlieir
ore, which was a very expensive
method. This winter things have
changed on account of thc completion
of the long crosscut tunnel uud drift
und the upraise, which was completed
a short time ago, it the became possible to dump all the ore mined into
chutes, thus doing :i'.vav with the expense of raising it ami the delay
entailed. However, ou account of tbe
progress of tbe season, the effects of
this will not be very noticeable before
next winter.
Thc output for Trout Lako by tho
beginning of April next will be about
1,100 tous, valued at about $150,000,
and it is more than probable that by
tho close of this year this will have
beeu increased to $200,000. This is
from properties which are alieady
sufficiently developed to warrant tbis
estimate. With the completion of railway couimuication between Trout
lake and Kootenay lake which places
us in direct touch with smelters it is
reasonable to suppose thai an additional stimulus will ho given to
mining in the Lardeau. Capital ought
to flow in with the solution of the
transportation problom and now properties will be opened up, whieh, with
those already in advanced state of
development ought to assure an era of
prosperity to tbe country which it has
waited long to experience.

boats, nets and other implements
aggregated 110,900,185. About 1,200
sehcODors wero employed, using 38,9b0
boats and 0,205,100 fathoms of nets,
Tho expenditure on various services
amounted to $401,500 and the receipts,
including that from American vessels
under tho modus vivendi was $08,178.
The valuo of the product was $21,557,-
639, a decrease of 8334,007 from 1809.
There was a falling off in British
Columbia to the extent of $335,254
owii.g to the shortage of the salmon
pack, but the quantity of halibut
taken in that province showed a
marked increase. The total catch in
the province waa 4,201,000 pounds,

WHERE OOOD COULD BE DONE.
Sportsmen   Disappointed   From     Not
Knowing Where to Go.
The starting of the Kootenay Tourist
association already has been the
means of making known a large number of instances where such an institution in the past would have brought
to the eity many visitors and prevented those who camo from being
disappointed. in the London, England, Field, one of the best sporting
magazines in the world, in a recent
number is a long article on hunting
in the Kootenays which gives anything hut a favorable impression of
tho district. The writer, who had
shot big game in many parts of the
world, says that he loft tho main line
and went south to see if there was any
game, although he could get no in for
mation us to where to go. Ho writes
that he reached a town called Nelson.
From there he took steamer aud went
up the lake 20 miles and landed with
supplies, He struck off from the lake,
was away a week and did not see any
signs of game. Reaching the lake
again ho saw an Indian in a cuiioe
and hired him to take his outfit and
himself to Nelson. They met with
heavy weather and tbe canoe sprung a
leak and swamped and be lost his
outfit und hod a very unp'easant trip
to town and he left thoroughly disgusted with the district. He says the
scenery was very beautiful but tbat
the mountains were filled with an
army of hungry prospectors who apparently bad cithei shct or chased
everything in the nay of game a stay.
A former employe of the railway
comnanv at one of the resorts on the
main line said that nearly every
sport&rnun that stopped there was very
curious as to the country to the soutn,
and if they could get any information
such as will be afforded by the association would undoubtedly take a trip
as far us Nelson.

Mr. and Mrs J.L. Parker who have
been at the Phair ior the past few
days, leave today for tho North Star
mine in East Kootenay.
The funeral of Mrs. 1'. Sirvold.
formerly of Minneapolis, Minn., will
take place this afternoon frnni her late
residence on Water street to tho city
cemetery.
The exeoutive committee of the
Kootenay Tourist Association will
meet this evening at S o'clook in the
Hume hotel when a plan of work for
the season will be laid down.
D. W. Moore, ore buyer for the
Trail smelter, was at the Hume yesterday en route lor Sandon. Mr.
Moore reports that good progress is
being made with the lead refinery
building at Trail.
The executive ol' the Tourist Association bus not yet met and therefore no
official arrangement has been made in
regard to printing as stated in the
issue of yesterday. The intention ol
the association i�� to patronize home
institutions.
A quantity of lumber was teamed
out yesterday over the Nelson-Granite
road to tho Poorman mine for use in
tho shaft now being sunk. Thin road
is still in fair condition and has stood
the winter very well there being little
subsidence anynlieio along it although
only finished late la&t full.

The lake still continues to rise and
yesterday afternoon reached the low
water mark of last year. As a rule
tbe raising of tbe water noes not commence until about the middle ol or
end of March, but from all indications
this year'here will not be uny very
high water. Tho oldest residents are
prophesying that the coming summer
will be a very dry and hot one.
MANY DON'T KNOW
Lack  of Eight  Food is  the  Oause  of
Sickness.
It is Hardly fair to blame the doctor
for not curing his patient when tli
patient attempts to live on food that
furnishes Ihe wrong kind of nourishment. When sickness comes on it is a
pretty good sign that tlie food is not
keeping the body up. There are
thousands of cases where ft change in
food alone Has brought the sick one
out into a prime   condition of   health
As an illustration. A lady in River
side, CaliL, says, "After teu years o
service as a teacher, during whicl
time I suffered three or four attacks of
La Grippe, I finally found myself a
physicist wreck. Medical treatment
would help my strength nud vitality
temporarily but I would always go
back.
Husband and I moved to California
in the hopes that this genial clime
would restore rne. I got better for ft
little while but in a few months became so weak and debilitated that
we wero in despair.
Finally through tho influence of a
friend 1 changed my diet and began
using Grape-Nuts and Postum Coffee.
I used Grape-Nuts at two of my meals
each day nnd have gained 1.1 pounds
in weight and thc incieasc in strength
is really wonderful.
I am hack to the healthy, good fecl-
ingnofiny girlhood days. I enjoy
Postum better than any beverage I
bave ever used. My friends remark on
my improved condition and I am impelled to write this letter with pro-
foiina gratitude, hoping that many
other may lie induced to go and do
likewise. I have proved that health
is the natural consequence of properly
selected food. Please do not use my
name bnt I will be glad to reply to
any inquires." Name furnished by
I'ostum Co., Battle Creek, Micb,
It is'reported that Ralph Herron,
travelling agent for George Hermann
and Co , of San Francisco, who has
been laid up with pneumonia for tbe
past two weeks, is convalescent.
A   session   of the county   court will
commenco   in   Nelson   on  Monday   of
next week.      The   list of cases Is   not
xpected to ho lurge on account of tbe
lucent date uptin which   the   Supreme
uurt session Was held.
3. II. Poff, of Vancouver, inspector

The advent of spring is showing up
trongly the necessity of continuing
tlie planking on Front street from
where it terminates at present opposite the warehouse of lliaekinnn and
Ker, west to Ward street. The soil
there is a blue clay which after the
frost leaves it is almost impassable for
weeks for tratlie.
At Emmanuel Congregational ohuion
last evening despite the inclement
night an appreciative audienco turned
out to attend the concert given under
the auspices of the Ladies' Aid society
by the Enid Martin Concert Co. Miss
Martin has a highly cultivated voice
and was hoard to good advantage in
lho vaiious numbers which she sang.
Mr. Fellowes-Hansou rendered a number of vocal selections very acceptably, and the accompaniments and
Instrumental solos by Elgar Ilayliss
evoked much applause.
A meeting of the board of works
was held yesterday afternoon at the
city hall. It is not likely tbat any-
ting will be done in_the way of city
improvements until there has been
another ��ale of city debentures v ith
the exception of the alterations in tho
channel of Cotronwood eicek, whicb
will have to bo completed before the
high water sets in, In the high water
of last year the corner of the tennis
grounds was swept away, and a large
portion of the bank below the Sherbrooke hotel carried away. The work
lhat has to be dono in straightening
and deepening the channel will prevent further damage by high water.

The Miner is in rocopt of a pamphlet from Percy F. Godenratb, the
newspaper correspondent of the Uoundary, who went east two months since
on a colonization scheme. The
pamphlet, wbich is neatly gotten upi
is entitled "Own a Piece of the
Earth" It deals with the farming
possibilities of tho country adjacent
to Grand Forks, which is ono of the
garden spots of British Columbia
Mr. Godenrath in an interesting way
tells of the possibilities of the land in
question to the end that he may secure
purchasers for the ten acre tracts into
vhich one large farm has been
divided.
T. V. Mclntyre, the well known
commercial traveler, returned last
evening from a visit to the Lardeau
country, lie reports that the Vulcan
smelter at Ferguson is finished and
ready to be blown in, but thero is a
shortage of lime rock for fluxing.
When this is obtained tbe plant will
commence reducing ore. Several
mines aro being operated and considerable ore is being taken out. The
railway which is being built to open
up the Lardeau country is having a
stimulating effect und those who have
interests there aro in a more hopeful
mood than they havo been on any
iormer occasion when Mr. Mclntyre
visited there.

At the first annual meeting of tlio
shareholders of the Phoenix Wator
and Light Co., held recently the following board of diiootors was elected:
II. N. Galer, G. W. Woosler, J. F.
Ilominway, 0. B. Smith and Give

tho board Mr. Galer was elected prosi
dent; O. H. Smith, vice president; G
W. Wooster. treasurer, and Mr. Hem
in way, secretary and general manager
The cempany has secured a 2.1 years'
franchise and has already expended
!f35,O0o in installing a water-works
system, which is giving good satisfaction. The water supply for domestic
use is pumped from Marshall lake to a
100,000-gallon reservoir tank located
on the New York townsite, giving a
400-foot pressure. In addition there is
another tank of tho same capacity and
which is supplied from the Old Ironsides mine. This reservoir is held as
a reserve for fire protection. The company his aho socurad the light frun-
hise and has already taken over the
lighting plant hithoito operated by
the Greenwood Electric Light Co. The
plant will be improved and placed in
llrst class condition immediately.
These improvements will   tend to give
Phoenix all the advantages of older
and moro favored centres.
A public meeting was held here yesterday for the puipose of discussing
the Chinee question in its bearing
on the market gardening Industry,
Many prominent rancheis were present aud a thorough discussion took
place. Thoso present were a unit in
emphasizing the extreme desirability
ol discouraging the presence of the
Mongolian element bolh in th? valley
and in the country at large. It was
eloarly shown that the competition   of
the Chinamen rendered the raising of
vegetables piolilless tu the ranchers,
It was suggested that a blah license
should be placed ou all peddlars aud a
public market be established.
After discussion a resolution was
adopted advocating the prohibition of
all puddling ami thc establishment of
a market where all (aiming products
can be publicly sold and where any
competition between white men and
Mongolians will ut least be opcu and
above board.
At a largely attended inciting of the
Board of Trado in tlie evening this
question was brought Dp in older tu
obtain au expression of opinion from
the business men of tbo community.
A vigorous discussion ensued, the
scope of which embraced the various
phuses of this vexed problem, lt was
contended on the part of tho ranchers
that tbey would bo inevitubiy driven
out of tbe business by the Competition
of tbe Chinese. All piesent concurred
in endorsing the view of tne ranchers
and a hearty endorsation of the market scheme was given. A strong committee was nominated to lay the matter before the city council.

ENFORCING  DISCIPLINE.
Story That Australians Were Shot For
Avenging Uoer Cruelties.
London, March 0.���A strange story
is exciting much ciscussion among
military mon, although it has kept
out of both press and parliament. It
relates to alleged reprisals takon by
Australian troops for Boer outrages in
firing upon tho wounded, and the
Draconian measures adopted by
Kitchener for enforcing discipline. It
is Etated that the Austialian officers
and men who toik the lex talionis
into theii own hands were tried by
court-martial and some were sentenced
to bo shut. The story is told with
precision and full details, but the
censorship has excluded it from tbe
ordinary dispatcher and omeiai v._

FOR RAISING POLL TAX.
Puttee and Ralph Smith Will Vote For
the $M)o Tax on Chinese.
Ottawa, March 0.���Mr. Pntteo, the
Lahor member for Winnipeg, has gone
through the voluminous report of the
Chinese commission. He states tonight the report establishes beyond all
doubt the justice of the claim advanced by the Labor party in British
Columbia for the exclusion of the
Chinese. Mr. Puttee aud Mr. Ralph
Smith will support the raising of the
poll tax on Chinese entering British
Columbia to $500, which virtually
means exclusion if enforced. Both
members will present their views
dunug tho budget debate. Mr. Smith
is at present eon lined to nis room
owing to indisposition, but hopes tu
be out aguiu early next week.

C. P. R. BLAMED.
New Y'ork, March O. ��� The Journal
of Commerce says there seems to be a
disposition among financial interest'
identified with the Northern Seeurit:cs
company to hold tho Canadian Pacific
responsible for much of the legal opposition to the merger. They do not
believe the Canadian Pacific is taking
any formal action, but that legal
talent friendly to that railway is
active in discovering nnd emphasizing
points against the merger They look
upon Northern Securities of Canada,
recently formed, as beluuging to the
Canadian Pacific.
