As directly bearing upon this i|iius-

dspatcbes from the Honorable the
Secretary of State for the Colonios tu
the Governor-General of Oanada:

��*|Inaugurated at Kamloops During Week Just Past.-Introduction
of a New Factor Into British Columbia Politics.-Result
of Deliberations of tlie Labor Convention.
Ottawa, April 14.���Part II. of the
report of the Royal Commission in re
Chinese and Japanese loferring to
Japan'se immigration has heen presented to Parliament by Sir Wilfrid
Laurier. A briof statement of tbe
findings of toe Commission appeared
somo timo ago; herewith uro tbe timl-
ings in full:
In ondeavoring to convey an idea of
the hind of immigrant the Japanese of
the laboring class is it will bo convenient to point out first wherein he
differs from the Chinese of the same
class. He is more independent, energetic, apt, and ready and anxious to
adopt, at least in appearance, tbe
manners anil mode of life of the white
man. lie avails himself of every opportunity to learn English, and often
makes it a condition of his contract
of hiring thut ho may do so. It is said
ho is not as reliable in ropeot of contracts as the Chinese are, and that
while applying to a certain extant on:
habits of life he more readily falls
into the vices of tlio whito man than
the Chinaman does.    As was said of
he has a dilTeront standard cl morals
from ours, and what bas been said of
the one in this regard applios to the
other; and except for broaches oi saui-
tary bylaws,the absence of convictions
would indicate that he is law abiding, lie often works for less wages,
and iu some important industries
driving out the Chinaman. He comes
without wife or family, and on a
passport which requires him to return
���within three years, for which he has
to give bonds beforo leaving. He dues
not contribute to tho support of
schools or churches or the building up
of homos. lie seeks employment in
all kinds of unskilled labor, and
works at a wage tbat all admit is
wholly inadequate for the support of a
white man and his family; and while
the Japanose do not live in one particular quarter of tho city or town, tbey
are given to overcrowding in boarding
houses, and the fact that they are
adult males without family enables
them to live in a manner and at a cost
wholly incompatible with the homo
life ot a white working man who has
a family. Coming as they do for a
limited period,and very often remaining only a part of tho year and returning again for the season when
they car obtain employment, they
carry away with tbem
are of tho least possible value to tbo
community, pvy no fair proportion
of the taxes of the country, and are a
keener competitor in all the avenues
of unskilled labor than tho Chinese.
Tlieir presence iu large numbers
delays the settlement of the country
and keeps out intending settlers; and
all that has been said in this regard
wilh reference to the Chinosc applies
with equal if not greater force to the
There is a olear distinction to be
drawn between immigrants who, if
otherwise desirable, come with their
families to make Canada their borne,
and that class of immigrants who
come tor a limited period only, intending to return within a short
period and tako their savings with
them. Tbey contribute iu a small
degree to tbat support and interdependence upon which the stability
and prosperity of a community
depends; and they withdraw to the
extent of their savings the value of
the product of the natural industries,
and render it moro difficult lor the
permanent settlers of all classes, except possibly the employe, to obtain a
living or to cany on his trade or call,
ing with success.
Tho concensus of opinion of the
people of British Columbia is that
they do not and
with white peoplo,  and that while in
Bome   respects   they   are less undcsii-
ftble   than   the   Cliineso in thnt   tbey
Chamberlain strongly advises the
enactment of logislaiion along tbe
linos of the Natal Aot. Quotations are
also made fiom despatches of Lord
Salisbury to the Governors of the
Australian Colonies.)
Your commissioners fully appreciate
the action taken by the Government
of Japan on the -nd of August, 1000,
whereby the Governors of tbe Prefectures of Japan were instructed to prohibit for tbo time being tbo
laborers for the Dominion   of Canada.
It is stated In a pamphlet purporting to bo published by the Japanese
Consul at Vancouvr, ''tbo principal
reason for tbe measure thus taken was
,o a��oid any lriutiou tbat might occur
by allowing thorn to conic into llritish
Columbia where their immigration
was not desired hy a certain element
of that province," and that ''the Government of Japan wholly stopped the
issuance of passports to any intending emigrants for Canada since tiie
flrst ot August last (1900), and still
continues tu do so, under a provision
of the Immigration Protection Law
(Law No. 70, 1/iflO.)"
Tbo course adopted by the Japanese
government, if we may without presumption he permitted to say so, is
most opportune, eliminating all cause
of friction and Irritation between
Canada and Japan, and so favoring a
freer trade and Intercourse between
the countries than could otherwise
Nothing further is needed to settle
this most
upon a firm basis than some assurance
that the aotion   already   taken Iw   the
Government   of   Japan   will   hot    ho
Your Commissioners dosire to express their earnest hopo that in tbe
continuance of this friendly policy
legislation on this subject by the
Canadian government may be rendered
unnecessary. Should, however, a
change of policy be adopted in this
regard by the Japanese government
whereby Japanese laborers may again
be permitted to emigiate to Canada,
the welfare of tho Provirce of British
Columbia imperatively demands that
effective measures be adopted to take
the place of tbe inhibition now imposed by the Japanese govenment.
You commissiones recommend that,
in that event, an aot be passed by the
Dominion govenment ou tbe lines of
what is known as tbo Natal Act,made
sufficiently stringent and effective to
accomplish the desired result.

Known Labor Leader, the Choice oi the Convention for President,

Rossland. April 19.���With the output
of oro for tbe week ending tonight,
the tonnage for tbe year to date from
the Rossland camp is brought substantially over the hundred thousand ton
mrk, and this too despite the faot that
two of the largo producers have only
contributed to Ihe output un a small
scale as yet. During the week the
LeRoi sent out !i,b'!iu tons, tho Lelhii

Usual Formalities.
Rngina, Anril 19.���The session of
tho Northwest assembly was prorogued shoitly after 11 o'clock today
without functions. Lieut. Governor
Forget after giving assent to 24 bills,
read his speech which was couched in
the usual terms.
There has already been published in
tbe columns of tbe Nelson Miner
telegaphic despatches from Kamloops
giving the proceedings of tile first
Labor convention of tbis province,
wbich has just terminated ils labors,
from day to day in a summarized
form. Owing to the interest that has
been taken in the doings of the convention and the speculation which has
arisen as to the political issues which
will result from the formation of the
Provincial Progressive party, the
exact text of the platform as accepted,
and of tbe resolutions wliioh were
adoped, is here given so that the public of thc Kootenays may be
thoroughly informed as to the meaning of that which was accomplished
and the spirit in wbich the work was
carried out.
The interest that was taken in the
proceedings may be estimated by the
newspapers which were here represented, the list including the Victoria
Colonist, Nanaimo Herald,Vancouver,
News-Advertiser, Province,'.World and
Independent,New Westminster Columbian, Kamloops Sentinel and Standard, New Denver - Ledge, Sandon
Paystreak and Rossland Evening
The delegates were (i:i in number
and came from Nolson, Rossland, Sandon, Phoenix, Vancouver, Kamloops,
Y'tnir, Greenwood, Nanaimo, New
Westminster, Sioean City, Victoria,
New Denver, Revelstoke, Ferguson,
Whitewater, Kaslo, Ashcroft,Silverton
and Fernie, representing the Western
Federation of Miners, thc Socialist
League,the Tiades and Labor Councils
of the principal cities of the province,
the Independent Labor party, Council
of Railway employees, Locomotive
Firemen, Locomotive Engineers,
Railway Trainmen,the Federal union,
Carpenters' union, Typographical
union, Cigarmakers, Boilermakers,
Machinists,Fishermen, Siugle Taxers,
Cooks and Waiters, and Railway
It would be permissible to suppose
tbat whilst so heterogeneous an assemblage of men witb littlo or nothing iu
common, with tbe exception that they
were one and all workers, that it
would have been a difficult roattsr to
diaw up a platform which would express the views of all without eon-
llict. Indeed, that tbis was accomplished without the formulation of a
platform of inordinate length and
without the introduction of planks
of contradictory purport is strong evidence of tbat feeling of amity and
well defined purpose which undoubtedly was characteristic of tho convention, ln some respects the platform
may be considered as an expression
of the hidings of lho workers on what
they eunsiuer to be tho burning questions of the day, and in other respects
the platform may be legarded as the
basis ou which the party will stann
in its efforts to obtain a shore of tbe
representation of tbe province iu the
provincial legislatuie. A unity of
principle may be lean to run through
the whole of its planks which is still
further evidenced in the resolutions.
One of the most characteristic of tbe
wholo of the formulations is that
which may be styled Ihe preamble to
tbe platform, and which thoroughly
proves the grasp of actual conditions
which the new party has already
attained aud its conception of tbe
only method in which it is deemed
its purposes may be carried to an
ultimately successful issue.
That there were differences of  opinion at the convent.on is   only   to  say
that it was like all oilier conventions.
Hut at lhe chrc of the proceedings
even tbo.se who had not succeeded in
impressing the whole of their views
upon the platform expressed themselves as satisfied with it, and professed themselves anxious to see tbat
thu bodies which they represented
would endorse it to their return. The
debates throughout were conducted in
an orderly manner and ,veording lo
the ordinary methods of parliamentary procedure, some of these present
showing tbat tbey were no mean parliamentarians.
In the election of tbo officers who
arc to form the permanent executive
of the new party during tbe ensuing
year, the convention showed its good
sense. Tbe choice for president is
Chris Foley, the well known Rosfiand
miner who ran for the Dominion election (or Uiis district ijr-inPtW, A.
Galliher, the present member, and
who lately bas been associated witb
R. O. Clute and D. J. Munn in tbe
Oriental commission. The vice-president selected is almost as well known
a personage. James Wilks is a Nelson
citizen and lias been for the past two
years president of the Western Federation of Miners in tins province. The
secretary is D. J. McNivpn of the
Typographical union of Victoria and
is now the foreman on the staff of the
Victoria Daily Times. The executive
council of four compiises II. Ruckle,
of Nanaimo, of tbe Nanaimo Herald,
who is a member of tbe Typographical
union; J. Ii. Watson, of the Boilermakers' union in Vancouver; D. W.
Stevens, of the Oouncil of Railway
employees, of Kamloops, and T.

Probable   Effect  of  Rhodes
SclioKirshlps on University Life.
The Speaker Thinks Colonials
Would Leave Little
London, April It).���The Speakor
devotes a long article to the probable
"feet oi tbe Rhodes Scholarships on
Oxford university. It thinks it safe
to ignore the influence oi the viermuna
and colonials, saying the former will
naturally gravitate towards a Teutonic clique, but it will bo too small
materially to effeot the settled life
and traditions of Oxford. Tho
colonials, of whom there are many
already at Oxford,show no tendency to
impress themselves on tho life of tbo-:
college as distinct from the studenta'
of tbu United Kingdom. It kin tbe
American invasion that the Speaker
anticipates the greatest changes.
The writer of tho article remarks:
There are now two distinct classes of
Americans at Oxford, Ono of these
classes is tlm sons of rich men affected
by a more or less aoute form of anglo-
manla who aro often moro English
than the English tbemselvos. These
may alsu be ignored or thoy will not
want to participate in the Kliodes
ECbemo. The second class Is small. It
consists of sons of English bom
parents who have settled in America
but who wish to maintain English
traditions. I believe thut nearly all
the _et_ scholarships will go to
Americans of this class. I have uevei
heard of any puro bred Americans
coming either to Oxford or Cambridge
because be or bis patents though be
could get a better education at those
universities tban at homo. Tbo results, however, will bo tbe same, or
whatever their fathers may be, the
American who is a son of English
parents, is an American as anybody
and not be likely to forget bis
nationality when they find him at
Arguing on these premises, tbe
writer concludes that 100 'young
American students, "glorying in their
nationality" will become a potent
factor in impressing their personality
on the staid old university with tho
natural result tbat an organizod
American sooictv, college yells, class
buttons and thc young American
spirit generally, will sharply accentuate tbe existing differences between
Oxford nnd Cambridge,

Hedley   City   Will   Re   Activo Centre
When Railway is   lluilt.
C. E. Oliver, M.E., of Hedley City,
is in Nelson on a business trip. Mr,
Oliver is interested in the Hedley City
townsite and stated that he believed
tbey had the makings of a good town
at tbat point. Although 50 miles
away from tbe railway, their nearest
station being Pentlcton, Hedley lies
at the mouth of Twenty-Mile oreek
thc valbv of which affoids the only
pass through the runge of mountains
enclosing the Similkameen, and
through which tbe railway will have
to flues an entrance. Close to the town-
site is Ibe Kingston mine on which IS
men bave been at work all winter,
and which is being developed into a
lirstolnss property. One tunnel is in
83 feet and another has just been
started. The lead ut the outcrop is HO
feet wide while the ore is arsenical
pyrites, carrying good values in gold,
the Nickel Plate is on the same
mountain, 4,000 foot abovo tbe King-
ion. A force of ','0 men have been ot
work on it for the past two years and
tho ore is extremely ricb. A large
number of tunnels have been run and
tho property put in shape tor shipping. Besides there are a large number of other good properties.
From Twenty-Mile creek down the
valley is a rich farming and stock
raising country, which Is well
settled. Tbe great, need of the district. Mr. Oliver stated, was transportation, and when this wits secured tha
district would go ahead very rapidly,
ns despite the distance from transportation the country had already been
Mettled and mines opened up, which
were all ready to ship   their oies,

Nelson, R. C, April 10th, 1902.
The feeling in the Kootenays and
Yale ia growing that the Federal
government has detenrined that there
shall be no change in the tariff at tne
present session of parliament. II this
resolution is adhered to the silver-
lead interests will bo compelled to
continue nnripr the present distressing
and almost intolerable conditions for
perltans a couple of years before tho
relief wbich it so sadly needs can lie
secured. Tbo wishes of the peoplo
wore fnlly set forth in the resolution
re lead passed hy tbo Associated
boards of trade, which were presented
to the government hy Messrs. Aldridge, Cronin and Ruehanan. This
committee went to Ottawa and inter-
viwed the government and exhaustively went over the question of increasing the duty on pig lead and the
manufactured products of lead, and
the crying necessity therefor. The
desire was to raise the import duty on
pig lend from 15 per cent, ad valorem
to 35 per cent, and, if this was
thought by the ministers to be too
high to at least S."> per cent., and to
have tbe import duty on white lead
Taised from 5 per cent, to 25 or 35 per
cent., in short the desire was to raise
the duty on lead and its products so that
lead a ined, smelted, refined and man
uia tured in Canada might lie sold to-
the e.nsuiners ol Canana and so take
the place of foreign products.
What was -wanted was to bring
.-.bout the same conditions in Canada,
.is prevail in tne United States, where
the mine owner who produces ore con-
laming lead, tbe smeltorman who
reduces it, the refiner who turns it
into pig lead nnd the maufacturer of
tbe products of lead are all protected
by imp n duties on lead Bnd its products wlich are intended to be
V.'int b the result of the conditions
no ��� attaining on the mine owspers on
bote su'es ul tile line'.'

$1.40 per hundred weight f"r lean
while the American rivals in the same
business receive *:i.r.O per hundred
weight. These figures are eloquent
testimony on the si lo of tile. Canadian
lend interests and cited as a simple
statement of conditions should in
themselves bo sufficient to convince
the Federal government ofthe necessity for making a change in tne tariff
laws so us to save the Canadian market for the- home producers oi lead
and its products.
It is not pretonded thai the simple
passage of the necssary legislation
would at once proouce conditions as
favorable to the load interests here as
they are in the United states. This
impi-ovemeiit would be wrought gradually. Tho conditions in the U. S,
are the result of gradual evolution,
thc dame as tbey would be here if the
Federal government can be made to
seo its duty in the right- light. At tbo
beginoing of the lead industry in the
United .States  it had  to  meet con
ditions somewhat similar to those
which Confront those engaged in
the same line nore. Smelters, refineries, corroding works lead pipe
factories, shot towers, had to be established and tlicss gradually came into
existence as they were needed. In
llritish Columbia at lirst all of tbe
silver-lead hid to be sent out of tbe
country to be smelted, but now smelters have been provided which together
witb those which are under erection
are of sufficient capacity to reduce all
of tho ore that is produced.
HUbert'1 not a sinlge pound of pig
lead has been made in the province.
The next steo is the providing of lead
refineries, One refinery will lie iu op-
eraton about lhe middle of .May and
the other will be erected later in the
year. Next will follow corroding
works, lead pipe and other factories,
each a forward step in the evolution
of the lead industry and each mailing
it mere possible to market Canadian
lead to Canadian consumers of the raw
and manufactured material.
It la essential to tho success of each
stap of tbe progress of the industry
that the porteetivo duty be sufficiently
largo to keep out liko products from
other countries. Why cannot the
Federal administration se.t the matter
in this light and grant the petition i f
tho Associated boards' of trade a
presented hy tbeir delegates'.1
Them must be a reason for their
failure to do this and it is said to he
a l'e.\r that it will offend ths farming
interests. This .should not deter tiler,
rum ending a condition of affairs
'which is almost intolerable and which
s retarding a most important interest.
'"The beef, eggs, vegetables aud other
'products of lho fanners are protected
by nn import duty and why should
they oppose like piotection for the
miner'.' Put tho import duty up
higher, as asked tor by the mine owners, and thero should almost immeci-
ately result a betterment iu tbeir condition and this improvement should
steadily grow. The Slocan, Ainsworth, Lardeau, etc., would become
the theaters of increased activity,more
men would be employed and the result would be increased prospeiity ano
consequent growth of the country,
which would redound to the advantage of tho l nner, who would find an
increased in rket for all bis products,
whieh wo Id compensate him for his
supposed aorifice in allowing the
duty on ead and its products to he
raised. There really would bo no

products conld alTord to sell

cheaper than he can purchase it at
present. It could to made" just as
cheaply in Canada as in the United
States, and there would not be the
present small import duty to pay.
Wo do not believe that eveu the
farmer would object to the putting on
of the proper duty if ne properly
understood the situation.
There is widespread indignation in
this section of tbe province ovor tlie
apparent unwillingness of the eo*>orn
ment to grant the petition of the As
Bociated bcarils of trade in relation to
the lend duties, and it is intimated on
the part of tbosa vitally interested in
the matter that expression will bu
given to Ibis in no uncertan way. It
is tbe intention to show the government that the peoplo ol this section
are a unit on this question and that it
ia one of vital importance which
must meet immediate attention,unless
the government desires to see thc
decadence of an industiy, which, if
properly fostered,can be mado cf great
importance to the commonwealth.

At Kaslo the wharf where ore is taken
on is not well suited tor the purposes lor
which ii is used and as a consequence a
number of tlie steamer men have had
duckings while loading ore. On Thurs-
dao evening, at dusk, while one of lhe
deck hands was wheeling a truck on
which was piled live 200-pound sacks of
ore down lhe inclined plank, lhe heel of
his boot caught. The force that he had
been exerting with the weight of the load
tore off the boot heel, but caused him to
swerve, with the result that the iruek,
with him holding the handles tightly,
dived over the side ofthe plank inlo fifty
feet of water. He went down a long distance and came up partly under the boat.
It was over ten minutes before he could
be reached and drawn out. The ore and
truck vvenl lo lhe bottom.

Tourists Association Meets Much En-
couragement  in Slocan.
W. A. Jowelt, secretary of the Tourist
Association, returned on Friday evening
from a trip through lhe Slocan, during
which be visited Slocan Cily, New Denver
and Sandon. The journey was in the
interest of the Tourist Association. He
reports that in each city visited the idea of
lhe Tourist Association is meeting with
great favor. Committees were formed in
Slocan Cily and Sandon while he was
there, and one had already been formed
in New Denver. Al the latter place the
Committee has been working for some
time and is doing excellent work. A trail
is to be built to the glacier which is located about four miles from New Denver.
This glacier is one of the scenic wonders
of lhat vicinity. On May 24th lhe committee, accompanied by many citizens,
visitors and tourists, will visit the glacier.
Each of the towns visiled will have written
descriptions of lhe features ofthe scenery
as well as photogravures in the Illustrated
pamphlet which the Kootenay Tourist Association is gelling up. Confidence was
expressed all along the line that all that
was necessary to attract hundreds of
tourists annually was lhe liberal use of
advertising along lhe lines proposed by
the Nelson committee.
A check for $10 has been received by
tbe Nelson Tourist Association from the
Royal Bank of Canada. Il was handed
in by George Kydd, the local manager.

Will   Remove   the     Loose    Dandruff
Scales But It Won't Cure Dandruff.
If your hair is brittle and thinning,
vou have dandruff. The mere scouring of the scalp of the li ose scales,
won't cure dandruff; because dandruff is nothing but scales of scalp
being trown up bv a pestiferous little
germ in burrowing its way to the root
of the hair where it snps the vitality-
causing falling hair and,in time oald-
ness. Now your can't stop dandruff,
cor falling hair, nor prevent baldness
unless you destroy that germ ; snd the
only preparation that can do it is the
now seiontilici'discovcry, Newbro's
Merplcide. In fact no other hair preparation claims to kill the dandruff
germ���all of them will clean the
scalp; sonp and water will do that,
but only Newbro's Berpicide gets at
tho root of the trouble and kills the
dandruff germ.
