FROM THE
SEAT OF WAR
"('in
Lieutenant Jack  Leckle, of
Strathcona Horse, Is
Home Again.
Was In a Score of Engage
ments. But Escaped
Unscathed.
Lieutenant Jack Leckie, of the
Strathcona Horse, was in the city fur
a few hours last night en route to
(ireenwood, where he will remain for
a time. Mr. Leclcie's last visit to
Nelson was on the occasion of the departure of the Kootenay detachment
to join the StrathconaB at Ottawa,
when the volunteers were entertained
at the Hotel Phalr. Since that time
he has gone through a hard campaign
in Africa but appears to have come
through hale and hearty. During the
entire year in Africa he was' in engagements over a score of times, but
escaped without a scratch, and was
also lucky enough to escape the fever
and other sickness which claimed al"
most as many victims as the Boer bullets. The Kootenay men who have
returned from the front unite in stating that Lieutenant Leckle was as
efficient an officer as served in the
corps; and that the authorities became
aware of this fact is evident when it
Is stated that Mr. Leckle has been
recommended tor the Distinguished
Service Order, a reward of valor that
is sought after almost as eagerly as
the Vlotoria Cross. The announcement
of the granting of the Order is expected shortly.
While decidedly reticent on the subject of his own performances, Lieutenant Leckio does not hesitate to
state that the men from this district
under his command acquitted themselves splendidly. Fiom the start to
the linisli of the trying campaign the
Strathconas were ready for business
at a moment's notice and never shirked work. They were more or less of a
rough und ready outfit in camp and
on the march, the distinction in this
respect between the Strathconas and
the Imperial troops alongside whom
they served being very marked, but
under lire the steeling qualities of the
men from the west came out, with the
result ih.t they won the admiration
and respect of the general officers
commanding. The Strathconas were
under ihe direction and pay of the
Imperial war office. This meant that
the men were rated as Imperial troops
and were senior to any of the colonial corps raised later, a fact which
they did not permit the other Canadians to overlook. On pay day, however, the other corps had decidedly the
best of the situation, for they drew
liberal allowances while the Strathconas received only the shilling per
day allowed the British "Tommy
Atkins."
The  Imperial   officers regarded the
easy-going manners of the Strathconas
indulgently.    It   was useless for them
to  protest, as one staff offioer learned
to laia discomfiture, and   the   incident
is worth relating. The Stratconas had
finished their work with General Bul-
ler's   division,   and    were   en   route
south, being  located   at a station  on
the railroad until   trains were procured for their transportation.    On parting with tho   corps, Buller had   said,
"Good-by Strathconas. Better, braver
or more useful men I have  never  had
the  honor   to  command."   The boys
were naturally tickled with the popu
lar general's commendation ;   and the
fact   that, while lying at the stution,
they had stolen   two barrels.of   rum
from a goods  train   did   not   tend to
subdue their spirits.    Merriment  ran
high   when   a   haughty   staff   officer
strolled over from a general's quarters
nearby and Ordered all lights out. The
men  from  western Canada   had heen
complimented by Buller and were full
of   rum, two   factors   which   did  not
make .the  staff officer's order acceptable. :'The lights were not extinguished and the first thing   that   happened
was tbat   one of   tbe boys   from   the
Kootenays shot out the   officer's  lantern with a bullet from a six shooter.
This started the ball and In two minutes   the   entire   outfit   was outdoors
picking off semaphore lights and playfully shooting the windows out of tbe
railroad depot.   The fusilade of shots
aroused the entire camp  and in a few

attnek    by   the    Boers.     Lieutenant
Leek ie anil the other   officers   of   tho
squadron   were   hurriedly   summoned
and quieted  the outfit.    Next day the
officials rustled up cars and paeked the
Strathconas down the line as   fast   as
possible.
Lleutenunt Leckle gives a hitherto
unwritten chapter of the history of
Beresford, who enlisted at Nelson and
is now captain in Lord Kitchener's
Bodyguard. Beresford went sick.soon
after leaving Capetown and never
was in a skirmish. He went to Durban, sewed a couple of stars on his
tunic and announced that he was an
officer. The real facts leaked out and
Beresford was slipping into a peck of
trouble when he seoured his commission. Pym, who enlisted at Nelson,
was an officer's orderly until he received a commission in the artillery.
He was killed In his first engagement
after securing the rank.
In common with other returning
volunteers, Lieutenant Leckie regards
Canada as a more promising field for
the average man than South Africa,

SAD DEATH.
Purser of the Nelson Died After a
Brief Illness.
"Duke" Bennison, purser of the
Steamer Nelson, died at an early hour
this morning after a brief illness. On
Sunday afternoon he was stricken
with appendicitis and entered the
general hospital, where he rapidly
grew worse. Consultations were hurriedly held, but owing to Bennison's
low condition the visual operation for
appendicitis was abandoned and one
for tbe purpose of affording the patient relief was substituted in the
hope that he might Improve sufficiently for the more serious operation.
Some improvement followed, but the
dangerous symptoms returned. The
end came shortly after midnight.
The "Duke" was 26 years of age
and unmarried. He was very popular
among the steamboat men, and the
news of bis untimely decease will be
received with keen regret.
THE OTTAWA  DELEGATION���
A telegraphic message received here
yesterday states that the Great Northern has arranged with the C. P. R. to
have the delegation, that will go to
Ottawa to urge on the government the
granting of a subsidy to a Canadian
lead refinery, return over the Great
Northern system.
PURSUING    THE     BOERS
THEY   ARE   ROUTED   IN    EVERY
DIRECTION   BY GEN. KITCHENER'S MEN.
LOST  HEAVILY   IN   RECENT   SEVERE ACTION   WITH   BAB-
.    INGTON'S BRIGADE.
London, March 57.���A despatch
from Lord Kitchener to the war
office, dated Pretoria, March 27, says:
"Our casualties in General Babing-
ton's action were two killed and seven wounded. Tbe Boers left 22 dead
and 30 wounded. As their pursuit was
rapid, many more Boer casualties are
likely.
"The operations of March 23 drove
the enemy north from their positions
at Kaffir's Kraal. On March 27 the
pursuit was continued by mounted
men only. The enemy's rearguard
was driven in by a combined movement on both flanks. Their convoy
was then sighted at Lenwoofontein.
The Greys, New Zealanders and bush-
men pushed on. The enemy attempted
to take up a position, but the Greys
and other troops rode down all opposition and gave them no chance.
"The convoy was ridden Into and
the enemy's retirement became a
rout. Tbe pursuit was continued until the horses were exhausted, "

Victoria, March 27.���It had been
arranged that the Crow's Nest Southern bill should be the first bill taken
up, ull promoters of bills claiming
priority to it, having agreed to its
being taken up first. The speaker
said this could not be done without
the consent of the house, and E. C.
Smith accordingly moved that tho
rules be suspended to allow the second
reading of the bill. All the bouse
wab agreeable excepting John Houston, who objected, and the bill therefore had to be considered in its turn.
It was not reaohed on the orders this
afternoon.
This afternoon Mr. Martin was furnished another opportunity to make
capital at tbe expense of his opponents. A petition,which was presented from the miners of Fernie, was
thrown out by tbe speaker because it
was addressed to the cabinet and not
to tbe house. Mr. Martin again presented it, making the necessary alterations, which the speaker refused to
accept, saying the rules prevented the
reception of petitions where alterations had been made. This roused
Mr. Martin, who cited cases last session where a petition from the mine
owners, full of interlinations, had
been received by the speaker in spite
of Martin's protest; and he demanded
to know if there was one law for the
rich man and another for the poor
man. He appealed to the house, but
much' to the annoyance of Martin,
Brown, of New Westminster, one of
his lieutenants, moved the adjournment of the debate.
It is not improbable that when the
house rises on Friday night it will
stand Adjourned until after the
Easter holidays. Many of the up-
country members are anxious to get
away for business reasons, and as
there seems to be a great deal of
work looming up in connection with
the session, this course may be taken.

GRADING WARD STREET���
Work on the grading of Ward street
is to be commenced at once. It is intended to render the street passable
for teams above Latimer street and to
lay a sidewalk for the convenience of
citizens. Ward street has the easiest
grade of any of the streets leading up
the hill and will be used largely when
graded.
MOVINO THE 8CALES-
Arrangemcnts are being made for
the removal of the weigh scales belonging to the city from their present
location at the corner of Vernon and
Ward Btreets to the corner of Baker
and Railway streets. Everything will
be made ready, but tbe scales will not
be changed until the present ground
is required by the contractors for the
new postofiice.
EXTENDING THE SEWER-
Work is progressing rapidly on the
sewer from the Sherbrooke Hotel east.
The board of works has deoided to extend the sewer east to Kootenay street
instead of (Falls street only as was
originally intended. A crew of men
is engaged# also in taking out the
steep bnnk on the Baker street front
Of J. Roderick Robertson's property,
where it is proposed to construct a
sidewalk.
ROWING CLUB MATTERS-
The advent of the rowing season has
caused the members of the Nelson
club to discuss the prospects for tbe
season and it is probable that a general meeting of the oarsmen will be
held at an early date. Among the
propositions on hand is one to purchase two lapstrcak boats for tho club
to replace the present cumbersome
eraft. This wonld necessitate an expenditure of about 8500, and if it ib
pot through will probably prevent any
improvements being made to the boat-
house this year.

ANOTHER GOOD SHOW���
Professor Payne entertained another
large audience at the opera house last
night. The subject who passed yesterday In a hyponotic sleep in Wm.
Hunter A Co.'s Window was awakened
before the audience and professed to
feel no ill effects. The programme
Included a baseball match and a popcorn selling competition, both of
whicli proved intensely amusing. The
concluding feature was an interesting
exhibition of moving pictures. The
matinee for ladies and children takes
place at 3:30 this afternoon.
The special features for tonight's
entertainment will be a murder trial
and a balloon ascension.

STARTED THE PONTOON���
The new C. P. R. shipyards near
Honeyman's foundry are now in full
swing. The work In hand is the construction of the pontoon for the Lardo
slip, which was commenced yesterday.
A start will be made wltbin a day or
two on the new 15-car barge to ply
between Nelson and Kootenay Landing. The timber for the permanent
ways at the new yards is expected
daily. A number of tbe ship carpenters employed on the work have moved
London, Mareh 28.���The indemnity
negotiations are lingering, says the
Pekin correspondent of the Morning
Post, and Germany insists on forcing
a loan upon China to meet the demands. Sir Robert Hart's scheme of
internal taxation would occupy fifty
years.
A conflict is imminent between the
French and Chinese troops at Hwaii.
Li Hung Chang has ordered the Chinese governor to withdraw from
the province of Chi LI, and the general reported that he would withdraw
after he had swept the foreigners out.
Thereupon General llailloud, tbe
French commander, left Pekin today
with permission to fight if his force
was attacked. This permission Is almost equivalent to positive orders.
The French have 1500 men at Hwaii Lu
and the Chinese are reported to number 25,000. Victory would give the
French command of the main road to
the province of Shan Si by a better
route to Fo Ping, which the Germans
have secured. The French intend to
construct a railway to Kl Gan as the
first step in a trans-Mongolian line to
Lake Baikal.
A remarkable testimony was borne
to the excellence of American municipal government in Pekin today, when
rn:niy thousands of Chinese assembled
in the American quarter and presented a petition begging the Americans
to remain in Pekin.
(SPECIAL TO THU MINER.)
Ottawa, March 27.���The meeting of
the special committee of the senate to
inquire into the Cook charges wus resumed this morning. The committee
room was crowded. Sir MacKenzie
Howell presided. Cook's examination
lasted during the entire session. Senators objected to Cook's luwyer wh's-
pering to him during the proceedings
and the objection was upheld. It was
also decided that Mr. Blake should
cross examine Cook us rigidly as be
wished. Cook, in his evidence, declined to connect Premier Lauder's
name with the alleged offer of a sen
atorsliip.
Mr. Blake then put in some letters
from Mr. Cook to Sir Wilfrid Laurier
and others asking for tho senatorship.
Mr. Blake���Is that your signature?
You know there is only one.H. H.
Cook.
Mr. Cook���And probably there will
never be another.
Mr. Blake���We all say amen to that.
(Laughter.)
Mr. Cook said that he and Mr. Biggs
wrote the letter; but in reply to Mr.
Blake he said that Mr. Biggs put in
tbe  "laudation."   (Laughter.)
Mr. Cook said that after he refused
the 810,000 demand of Mr. Cameron,
tire latter broke off the senate negotiations.
Mr. Blake���You know that Mr.
Cameron is dead.
Mr. Cook���Yes; but he is alive
spiritually.
Mr. Blake--You mean he lives in
honesty and in truth.
A letter was put in which was
written after the date of the alleged
810,000 oiler, in whicli Mr. Cook
again urged his claims to tbe senator-
ship. Another letter, written two
years after the offer, congratulated
the premier in connection with his
visit to England.
Mr. Blake asked if this premier was
the same Infamous person tbat Mr.
Cook had alleged had tried the 810,000
deal on him.
Mr. Cook���I never said the premier
was such.
Mr. Blake referred to an allusion
that Sir Wilfrid Laurier and his government weie the guilty parties. A
number of letters sent by Cook to
Hon. Mr. Mills in 1808 and 18110 were
read, in which Mr. Cook continued to
urge his c'.ainis for an appointment.
In one Mr. Cook referred to some
other appointment and said lie was
the only one left out in the cold. He
might, perhaps, remain so until he
became an icicle.
In reply to Mr. Blake, Mr. Cook
Bald the Ontario ministers who were
supporting his claims were Sir Richard Cartwrlght, and, in a less specific
way, Senator Mills.

condition of the Irmly and blood spattered on table, couch and walls indi
cate a foul murder. An investigation

Rossland, Mareh 37.���J, P. Graves,
manager of the Granby Consolidated
Mining and Smelting Company, today
gave a brief account of the excursion
party which he is getting up to visit
this section in June.
In speaking of the mattei he said:
"We have taken up with Mr. D. Mc-
Nicoll, vice president of the 0. P. It.,
tbe question of running an excursion
from the east to Hritish Columbia this
Bummer, probably in June. The idea
was very warmly received, and the
vice president has promised soma
special privileges which have not yet
been announced. At all events, a
special rate will be quoted. The
proposition Is to place the train at the
disposal of the visitor.-, enabling them
first to stop oft" at Fort Steele and
Fernie,there to inspect the coal fields,
then visit Nelson and the Slocan district, Rossland afterwards, and, finally, the Boundary district. In this
manner these people will have an opportunity of seeing the most representative mines anil mining districts.
This itinerary, of course, may be varied, but that, in the main, will be
tbe programme. Possibly Republic
may be visited. I took occasion to
inform many of our leading shareholders of the excursion and many of them
and others, not only in Montreal, but
Boston, New Yoik and Philadelphia
parties, will avail themselves of the
chance to come west this Bummer. I
feel confident that the result cannot
be otherwise than advantageous in so
far as it will enable these people to
become more intimately acquainted
with the mineral wealth of this
province."
MOLOOK'S TRIE.
Montreal. March 37.��� The Star's
London cable says: lion. Mr. Mulock,
postmaster general of Canada, gave
evidence yesterday before the interdepartmental cable Committee. Proceedings were private, but it is understood Mr. Mulock favored expansion of a state-owned cable system by
the conBti action of a government cable between Canada and Great Britain, also the acquisition of tho line*
from Australia via Singapore and
Hong Kong. The latter extension
would lie of the greatest possible advantage to Canada as thereby Canada
would, via a Pacific cable, be put in
direct Communication with China and
Japan. The proposed cable would be
of great advantage to Canadians seeking trade development in tho Orient.
Mr. Mulock, accompanied by Mrs.
Mulock aud son. left today for Ilrindi-
si, where they will embark on the
Himalaya. Speaking of fast mail service, Mr. Mulock s.id lie favored
government control, and regarded
Sydney, Cape Breton, as a Canadian
JKirt olfering the best facilities. It is
understood that one of the objects
Mr. Mulock hopes to accomplish in
his conference with Australian ministers is improved Canadian-Australian
service."

i 5 OUR FINANCIAL RELATIONS.
W^'>y ��� ��� ������
As   was pointed out  by Hon. James
Dunsmuir and Hon. D. M. Eberts during their mission to Ottawa as a delegation from the government of British
Columbia, the question of financial relations forms a most important part of
the case of the province  and   upon   it
depends   almost   every other claim to
recognition now being made.    For the
purpose   of   arriving   at   a   basis   of
claim, the   contributions of   the province to   the  Dominion treasury in the
way of   taxes and all other incidental
contributions and of the expenditures
of  the Dominion, directly oi indirectly, on   account of   the province, have
been   ascertained   year   by year from
the Public Accounts   and   Reports  of
the   auditor-general   since   1H72,   the
first year of   confederation   so   far   ae
this province   is   concerned, up to the
present time, and   estimated  on a basis of previous years  up  to   July 1st,
1901.    The principal source of revenue
has been, of   course, the customs  and
inland revenue, but, in order to make
the   account  complete, everything going to and coining from the Dominion
has been   included, except a few incidental itemB of   revenue and expenditure, which do not   alter the   account
materially and wonld in tbe aggregate
about balance   each other.    In respect
to the customs, comparisons  have fre-
uently keen made between the revenue
contributed   by   British Columbia and
the   revenues   contributed     by   other
provinces, but, taking the other provinces Individually, it   is impossible to
arrive at any just   or   accurate   stat?-
ment   of   their   contributions to   the
Dominion,   for   the   reason   that   the
goods entered,  at   the   various   ports
where   the   customs    collections   are
made are   distributed   throughout the
other   provinces     by   the    wholesale
trade, but in the case of   the province
of British Columbia nothing imported
through   the   customs is   exported   to
provinces   in   the  east, and therefore
everything imported is  consumed   lo
cally, and   the   tax   is   paid   by   the
people   of   the   province.      As a baBis
of comparison, British Columbia must
be taken in a relation   to the  rest  of
Cnaada as a whole.    The statement of
revenue and expenditure which accompanies   the   argument    was   carefully
prepared and is  substantially correct.
No   revision   would   materially   alter
the results; in some few instances the
amounts set down are   estimated.    As
a matter of fact, no two  compilations
would   agree   in   detail, ar.d   in   any
event, as all details are not available
in the Public Accounts   and   Auditor-
General's Report, by provinces for the
whole period   included, only access to
departmental records would give absolute   accuracy.    There   is   a   way   to
arrive exactly at the  per capita  consumption and contributions of revenue
for every   province, that   is, for   each
year hereafter, and it is most important tbat it should   be done in connection with the forthcoming census-taking, or under the  auspices of  the Department of Trade and Commerce.   It
Is  quite  practicable,  and, if  carried
into effect, wonld show accurately the
volume  and   kind of  intci-provincial
trade, the consumption  in  each province, the amount of  duty and freight
paid���in  brief, show the exact   status
of inter-provincial relations.
The practical aspect of tbe case is
this: A province haB a certain population and contributes a certain revenue. Whac it pays as imposts to tbe
treasury is, per capita, its impost or
burden of government. Computations
on that basis in various ways .show,
as a general and almost invariable result, that for a whole period of years
the burden bas been two and throe-
quarters times that of the rest of Cun-
ada, taken as a whole. Dominion expenditure in the province is,of course,
greater per capita than that of the
rest of Canada, but not in tlie same
ratio, inasmuch as, taken together,
there is a clear and a large surplus of
revenue overexpenditure. That it is not
true of tbe while of Canada Is shown
by the general result that tbe net debt
created since 1872 is over 8190,000,000,
and the gross debt over 8230,000,000.
The excess of expenditure over receipts has been 8233,506,525. In addition to the burden of government by
direct  imposts, there is the  indirect
be   roundly     estimated    at   between
8050,000   and   8500.000;   bat, added to
this, Is tlie aggregate   freight   bill of
the province, which, on account of its
remote position   from   the   centres   of
supply, InCiegsei the cost of  living so
materially, in effect 25 or 30 per cent.
The   consumer   in   tins province pays
not only a through rate from   Eastern
Cana-lu, which   varies   from   81.50   to
83.50, but   also   the   local   rate   back
from terminal  points, which in   some
eases   equals   the   through   rate.    In
Eastern Canada, on   the  other   hand,
shorter     distances      from     terminal
points, the freight does   not exceed 10
to   2(1   cents, ut   the   outside, per   100
pounds. In fact, taking all things into
consideration, the cost of   living on a
similar standard is generally conceded
to be about 35  per cent   greater   than
in Esatern Canada.    In   this   connection, too, we   must   also consider the
very much   greater cost per capita involved in the   development   and   government of a province like British Co
lumoia. where   the  physical   features
are so   rugged and distances so great,
and communicaion  so difficult and expensive, and   the   population   is comparatively sparse.    So far   as its products arc concerned, British   Columbia
must compete in markets   with   other
provinces,    and   other   countries    in
which the cost of production   iB   very
much less.   Were it not for   the   great
natural   wealth of   the   Province, and
the natural attractions for people with
money, the   drain   upon its  resourceB
by the burdens referred to would have
placed it, financially, in  an   unenviable" position. It was tbe disadvantages
of position and other circumstances in
confederation that   led to the recognition of  better  termB for Nova Scotia,
the financial relations of   which were
several times adjusted.    To   oveicome
the    natural      disadvantages.   under
which   Britifh Columbia   has labored,
it     requires      population,     and,    to
acquire   population   development on a
comprehensive BCule is   reccssai.v.    In
view of   the disproportionate   revenue
it has contributed   to   the   Dominion,
and   the outlet it has afforded for the
products aDd   energy of   Eastern Canada, it claims a  commensurate   share
of   financial    assistance.

MR. ROBERTSON'S   VIEWS.
In an interview with The Miner,
published yesterday morning, Mr. .1.
Roderick Robertson, wbo has just returned from a holiday trip to California, gives expression to some views on
the question of the establishment of a
refinery and the condition of the mining industry which are worthy of
more than passing notice. Mr. Robertson, of course, is heartily in favor
of the establishment of the refinery, if
by tbat means the present teneion may
be terminated ; but he very opportunely points out that concessions to the
mining inrln try must go hand in hand
with the consummation of that project. This, we take it, is a very im
portent phase of the question, and one
which heretofore has not been adequately recognized. It is very clear
that if an arrangement which is to
prove satisfactory is to be made, the
subsidy asked for must not be used to
swell the income of the smelters instead of securing lower charges for
treatment. Otherwise the mining companies would be in exactly the samo
condition which they are today. No
one will dispute that it is equally important to reduce, taxation and tbe
cost of production of the mines, Mr.
Robertson scents danger, too, in the
possibility that the government, having conceded a bounty to the smelters,
would think it had dono enough and
refrain from giving further attention
to requests for legislation favorable to
the mining industry. He is quite convinced that the bounty on refined lead
will not in itself greatly stimulate
mining unlets it acts as an inducement
to the smelters to reduce the charges
which are now demanded.
Mr. Robertson has put forward some
very valuable ideas on this highly important subject and they arc bonnd to
carry great weight and receive due and
proper consideration when his close
connection with very large mining
interests ia remembered.

A movement has been launched in
London to raise funds to erect a na
tional memorial in honor of Queen
Victoria. King Edward in contributing 81,000, expresses the
hope "that sufficient money will be
forthcoming to erect a lasting and
worthy memorial to the great Queen
my beloved mother." There ought to
be little difficulty in raising a huge
sum for this purpose. No doubt if
the colonies were permitted to contribute thore would be a ready response
South Africa is a bad pluce for

of some of their fame, and now Lord
Kitchener seems to be in danger.

all the patronage in the Kootenay does not go their y

we do claim, and in fact we know, that we have the
majority of the best customers in Nelson and vicinity; and this is quite feasible, too, when you consider the quality of our goods as compared with the

And Ooffee Will "Do You" Good and
Brown, if You Are  Highly
Organized.
Coffee is no respector of persons
when it comes to the poisonous effects
thereof. A prominent physician's
wife of Monticcllo, Ind., says that
coffee treated her very badly indeed,
giving her a serious and painful
stomach trouble, and a wretched,
muddy complexion.
Her husband is a physician of the
regular school and opposed to both tea
and coffee, so he induced her to leave
them off and take on Postum Food
Coffee.
The stomach trouble disappeared
almost like magic, and her complexion cleared up; now she is in excellent
condition throughout.
There are thousands of highly organized people who are made Bick in
a variety of different ways by the use
of coffee, nnd most of these people do
not suspect the cause of their trouble.
They think that others can drink coffee and are well, and they can, but
about ore person out of every three IS
more or less poisoned by coffee, and
this can be proved by leaving off
coffee and taking Postum Food Coffee.
In nearly evry case the disorder will
be greatly relieved or entirely disappear. It is easy enough to make a
trial and see whethor coffee Is a pol-
win to you or not.
the Crow's Nest Coal Co. started in,'
yet we may reasonably assume that
James .1. Hill, with a first call upon
all the coal lands of the Crow's Nest
fields, will not allow an opposition to
start work without placing as many
obstacles in their way as possible.
Therefore, any advantage which a
new company might have in starting
in today to develop fields, would be
more than offset by the obstacles
which would be.thrown in its way by
Hill and bis colleagues���the present
Crow's Nest Coal Co.
For three years, 11 ill will have control of these fields without opposition
and will be in a position to dictate as
to the prices of coal and coke throughout the country. This places absolutely at his mercy every dollar invested in the smelting industry of
Hritish Columbia, and every dollar
invested, which Is dependent indirect
ly upon thiB smelting industry. Let
us take the money invented in smelt
ing plantB in British Columbia today,
and figuring conservatively, that the
average cost of thoBe plants has been
about 81,000 for each ton of capacity,
we would obtain the following figures:

COMMUNICATION^
THE OPEBA HOUSE.
To the Editor,���It ia only a few
days since the public was informed
through the columns of the press that
the chief of the fire department had
condemned the Nelson Opera House.
The chief is no doubt justified in his
decision and is deserving the thanks
of tbe community for having the
courage of his convictions in denouncing the building as a veritable fire-
trap. But why did not the authorities
go a step further, and while examining the building as to the possibilities
in the lifesaving line, also call on the
health officers and have it examined
as to the probability of spreading disease and causing death other than by
fire to those who attend entertainments given therein. A great deal
hsa been written and spoken during
tlie past few weeks of the "filthy
Chinese;" but I doubt if there is
within the city limits today a more
filthy or disvase-breeding hovel than
the Nelson Opera House. Dust on the
floors, dust on the chairs, dust everywhere, leaving its imprint on the
clothing of all who enter its portals.
Cigar stumps scattered here, there
and everywhere, which, with the ex
pectorations of tobacqp juice iu evi
deuce on all sides, rise iu disgusting
aroma to foul tbe atmosphere and
sicken those who arc forced to inhale
it. "Filthy" does not express it.
The condition of the Nelson Opera
House is an offense against common
decency and would not be permitted in
any other eity, town or village in
Canada. Neither should it be tolerated iu Nelson. CITIZEN.
THE   COAL CONTBOVEBSY.
To the Editor,���While all will ad
mlt that under ordinary conditions,
few arguments can he made against
the "open door policy," yet under the
peculiar conditions existing in British
Columbia today, it is impossible for
the advocates of the "open door pol
icy" to apply this argument to the
case involving the granting of a char
ter to James J. Hill in order that he
may complete his deal with the Crow's
Nest Coal Co.
It requires a great deal of time to
open new coal mines, and no matter
how many millions of tons of coal
may exist in the East Kootenay country toduy, the facts remain that it has
taken the Crow's Nest Co. three years
to reach a point of mining 700 tons ol
coal daily for any long period, such
as six months. It is fair to assume
that it would take any new company,
starting in to open up mines, at least
as long as it has taken tho Crow's
Nest Co.; for while railway facilities
way  be better  than they wero when

This means that people who have

the country in its infancy, and by
their brains, and through the investment of this 82,300,000, have developed
and made the conntry, arc to be placed
absolutely under Jim Hill's thumb,
simply for the sake of completing a
stock deal for the benefit of George
A. Cox and Robert Jaffray.
Let us go a little further and take a
glance at the towns which are largely
dependent upon these smelting workB.
During the close down of the Hall
Mines smelter, the streets of Nelson
were almost forsaken, and business
was practically at a standstill. Were
the Hall MineB smelter entirely abandoned it would be felt hy practically
every resident of Nelson,
At Trail there is absolutely nothing
excepting the smelter, and when those
works are closed it is difficult for any
man to earn an ordinary living, while
the bulk of the population move to
Butte and other  smelting centers.
At Grand Forks the whole town realizes that its future is entirely de-
���. :���_" ,'��� v; n the succ��� c* tv" Granby ___eltnr. A doubli.��� of the capacity ol that plant, as no. .ed by
Mr. Graves, means practically a doubling of every value in the town of
Grand Forks, and a doubling of the
business of every merchant.
At Greenwood we find exactly tbe
Bauie condition of affairs, and according to Mr. Duncan Ross, the town is
only just recovering from a period of
stagnation, and the reason it has recovered is hecauBe the smelters have
been started.
But the people favorable to the
granting ot this charter assure us that
Mr. Hill has no intention of closing
Canadian smelters. Has anybody
heard Mr. Hill make a statement to
this effect? Can Mr. Hill explain why
in every instance on his branches going in Canada'ore rates are much lower going south into the states than
they are from United States and Canadian points north to Canadian smelters?
The schemers in favor of this charter ask the public.and members of the
government to believe all this, although it is a well known fact that
Hill has never been known to keep a
single promise with any city or any
community through which his road
passes; and even now the people of
Spokane are wondering as to whether
there is any chance of Hill's keeping
promises made to them nine years
ago!
In the United States Bill Is neither
trusted nor believed by most of the
people along his line, and he is looked
upon with suspicion and distrust by
other railway men, and the heads of
large institutions. In spite of all this,
the smelting people, and all others
who have money invested in the
country are asked to trust in Jim Hill
and his fairness and give him thiB
coal monopoly and all which goes
with it. CANADIAN.
