SMALLOX IN HULL.
tlie necessity for tlie refinery In more
ample and convincing terms than any
similar resolution yet framed ou tho
Bubject, but it was resolved to appoint
two members to interview the cabinet
ministers at Ottawa for tho purpose
of supporting the board's position.
Furthermore, the resolution is lo be
placed be/ore every member of parliament and legislature, together with
the boards of trade of British Columbia and the cast. Such Is the programme outlined ; and as It stands it
Is probably the most extensive scheme
of acliou ever adopted by the Nelson
board. That the refinery is deemed of
importance to the mining and business interests of the province is demonstrated by the manner in which the
organized business men of the commercial center of tho Kootenays have
gone in to secure favorable legislation on the point.
At the last meeting of the council
of the board a special committee was
appointed to deal with the refinery
topic and prepare a report and reso ���
lution lor last night's meeting of the
board. The result of their labors
may bo regarded as a review in brief
of the entire situation,and wkB couched in the following terms:
"Whereas, lead mining in British
Columbia bas grown into a most important industry, giving employment
to a large number of men at high
wages, supporting the population of
an extensive area in the Kootenay districts, and adding much to the general
prosperity of the country ; and.
"Whereas, the increase and develop
ment of the industry are certain under
favorable conditions, which conditions
mainly depend on the miners being
albe to get their ore smelted at a reasonable charge for freight and treatment; and,
"Whereas,the demand for these lead
ores by smelters in the United
States has almost ceased, and the capacity of the smelters now operating in
British Columbia is totally inadequate
to treat the output of these mines,
some of which have already lessened
their output and others have closed
down on account of this difficulty;
and,
"Whereas, no means of refining base
bullion exists today in Canada, thereby necessitating the bhipmentto United States refineries of the lead product of Canadian smelters, and a
much higher rate for refining lead
than formerly is now being demanded
by the American Smelting & Refining
trust; and,
"Whereas there is no tendency observable to increase the Bmelting capacity in the districts now suffering,
while the danger of having to pay ex
cessive rates for refining continues;
and,
"Whereas the establishment of a
lead refinery readily accessible to the
smelters in the lead producing districts would undoubtedly lead to the
erection of more furnaces, and thus
afford the lead mining industry the
relief it now so urgently stands in
need of;
"Therefore be it resolved, That in
the opinion of this board the establishment of a lead refinery injau accessible position in Canada is the surest
and best means of fostering and encouraging the lead mining industry ot
British Columbia, and the board respectfully urge on the Dominion government that [to aid this important
purpose, and to assist this new industry until fully estalbished, that a
bounty be granted for five yeain of $5
per ton of pig lead, the product from
ores mined, smelted and refined in
Canada.
"The board would also  respectfully
east.
"The board would also suggest that
If a   bounty be   granted, thj   government should retain the power of interfering in case more than fair and profitable rates were   charged,    (Signed)
"ORANCfB V. HOLT,
"HENRY CROASDA1LE,
"SIDNEY S, TAYLOR,
"J.  J.  CAMBPELL,
"S, S. FOWLER."
The report   as   above   was adopted,
and the   resolution  of   approval   provided for the fowarding of   copies   to
the various persons and  oiganizutions
alluded to in the  foreoging.
Robert Robertson recommended the
board not to stop at the measures
suggested if it was an accepted fact
that the refinery was of prime importance to the country's commercial prosperity. He approved of forwarding
strong resolution,but was of the opinion that the only way to make the
resolutions effective was to back them
up by personal representation. A
few good men thoroughly posted on
the subject would accomplish more
than a score of resolutions otherwise
unsupported.
Referring to the aspect of the matter mooteu by Mr. Robertson, President Holt threw eold water on the
proposition emanating fiom Kaslo, to
send a special Iruinload of people
from thiB district to prevail ou the
government to grant the subsidy
on refined lead. In his opinion, one
man who would go east thoroughly
posted on his subject would accomplish more than a trainload of people
who would not know anything about
the matter. The qnestion of a personal delegation had come up in council and S. S. Fowler had informed the
board that as he would be going east
shortly he was prepared to undertake
the task of representing the board's
views to tho ministers. Mr. Holt
thought the board should take
advantage of this fact, as it was admitted that no man was better qualified for the undertaking than was
Mr. Fowler. It was resolved to request Mr. Fonl.r to represent the
board and also that S. S. Taylor, K.
0., should be asked to co-operate.
Mr. Taylor is leaving for the capital
shortly and will be in a position to
act on the delegation.
R. R. Hedley, manager of the Hall
Mines smelter, closed the discussion
of the refinery question by stating
that one of the queries likely to arise
would be that of whether or not the
subsidy of $5 per ton on refined pro-
duet was   too   high

THE ACTIVITY NECESSARY OWING
TO DAN0.ER   FROM HIGH
WATER.
Work on the new C. P. R. bridge
across the Columbia at Robson is to
be rushed from this out until the task
is completed. The possibility ot a
rise in the level of the river at an
early date consequent on the thaws
sure to follow the mild spring weather, has made it politic for the contractor to redouble his efforts to ensure the completion of the contract
before high water s'ets in in earnest.
.' Arrangements have been made to
expedite the work by putting on a
double shift, thereby making work
continuous throughout the 24 hours.
To accomplish this strong artificial
lights are essential and arc lamps will
be used, the power being obtained
from the West Kootenay Power Company's system, which passes within a

Victoria, II. C, March 14.���During
tho interview which the delegation
from the Associated Boards of Trade
of Southern Britisli Columbia had
with the government this morning an
announcement which created a profound impression was tniide by Manager Dtury of the St. Eugene mine,
who has acted for Cooderham in the
purchase of the Trail smelter. He
said that he had assurances from
Elias Rogers, managing director of
the. Crow's Nest Coal Co., thai if the
railway charter was granted and the
company thus enabled to put in their
thousand coke ovens, that the company would guarantee to supply the
smelter at Trail with all the coke it
required at 25 cents per ton less tuan
it was paying at piesent.
Mr. Turner asked if the company
would put this in writing or would
consent to its insertion in the charter.
Mr. Drury ieplied that his principals had no hesitation in accepting the
statement.
An announcement extremely gratifying to farmers and the mining section was made this morning in reply
to a delegation from tlie Associated
Boards of Tiade of Southern British
Columbia, lion. . Iter, Turner said
that an official of tlie agricultural department would start out immediately
to collect data for the use of the government in fixing railway rales. He
would pass thiough the farming dis
tricts. interview as many farmers as
possible and get ideas in regard to
proper freight rates on farm produce.
He would also obtain if possible an
estimate of the amount of freight
which might be expected; and all
this data would be laid before the
government with the object of assisting them in adjusting the rates so
that the British Columbia farmers
might compete with farmers to the
south of the boundary, in supplying
the mining camps of -Britisli Columbia.

Briefest Budget Speech   in History of
Canada���Good Showing Made.
(SPECIAL TO THE MINER.)
Ottawa, March ��14.���-The budget
speech delivered by Mr. Fielding in
the bouse of commons today, was one
of the best financial statements ever
made in the Canadian parliament.
The fact tbat it was the shortest budget speech ever delivered made it all
the better. It was a presentation of
the financial position of the country
and not filled with tables of statistics gathered from all the blue books,
as lias been customary in the  past,
Mr. Fielding promises a surplus of
811,350,000 for tbe current year and ol-
return, nor was there a scratch of a
pen to indicato that the city had any
right to the plant. When Mayoi
Fletcher assumed office he sought
out Contractor Gunn and secured an
agreement respecting the apparatus,
holding the corporation should place
in writing tlie fact that plant valued
at 81,400 had been loaned, Mr. Gunn
readily consented to give any guarantee required.
A feature of work at the bridge has
been that since operations commenced
Mr. Gunn has refused to permit an
axe to be raised or a bolt driven on
Sunday. Instead of working on Sundays as on other days of the week, the
men have taken a lest, and services
have been held, conducted by Mr.
(lunn. This course of action is new
in the west, and the outcome has been
watched with interest. If the contract is not concluded within the stipulated period it is likely to be stated
thut the Sunday lay-offs had much to
do with the failure. On the other
hand, if the work is completed it will
be more or.leas of a triumph for the
contractor's conscientious scruples.
There seems to be every likelihood
tbat tbe latter will be the case,
The delegates expressed the liveliest
satisfaction at tbe action of the government, which would insure the collection of data from the standpoint of
both farmers and railway corporations, and thus pave the way for
bringing about an amelioration of tlie
conditions under which the farmers
of tlie province do business at the
present time. Mr. Turner intimated
that the C. P. R- had manifested the
greatest readiness to osBist in the
matter.
Somo of the old sectionalism of Island vs. Mainland was in evidence in
the debate this afternoon on a resolution offered by* Brown, affirming tbe
desliability of a redistribution of
seats. Turner, for the government,
promised redistribution after the
census, but refused to say how long
after. Gilraour's resolution that on
address be transmitted to the governor general asking for the insertion
of an educational clause in the Dominion Chinese immigration act, similar to that in force in Natal, passed
unanimously.
A deputation of mayors and aldermen from Victoria, Vancouver, New
Westminster and Nelson asked Prentice today to modify the school bill.
He promised to reconsider certain powers given the trustees hut the financial features must stand.

MR. JAFFRAY S VIEWS.
Robert Jaffray, of Toronto, one of
tbe directors of the Crow's Nest Pass
Coal company, who is now at the coast,
has been expressing his views very
fieely to the newspapers. As was to
be expected, be considers that a great
wrong would be done tlie province if
the application for a charter for the
Crow's Nest Southern railway is refused; but the arguments which he
advances in support of his contention
are very interesting. Dealing with the
likelihood of smelters being established on the American side, he says that
much will depend on quick uctlon.
Although the Canadian side hus ull
the advantages, we must not run
away with the idea that we have
everything. There are rival projects
on the boards, and unless we take advantage of our opportunities they
may tie lost, at least as far as this
generation is concerned. A good smel
ter site at Chelan Falls, near the cen
tie of Washington state, has been under consideration by some prominent
smelting men. Thiscould be supplied
with coke from Puget Sound, but
there is already a heavy lumber traffic
from the coast there would be the ad
ditional cost involved in the lack of
return freight. A smelter at Chelan
Falls could gather the dry ores that
would be available for a smelter at
Fernie. These would include the ores
from the Hope district in Idaho, near
Montana, which are silicious and
carry gold. They now go west to
Everett and east to Helena. In the
Horseshoe basin, at the head of Lake
Chelan, there are, the requisite lead
ores to make the blends needed for a
smelter at Chelan Falls, and it would
onlv be necessary for the Northern
Pacic to build about one hundred
miles of railway parallel with and
not acrosB the mountain ranges to establish a smelter there and drain all
the ores of the Similkaineen district
to it. This location is by no means us
favorable as many in tbe Koctenay
district, but if we pursue a poMcy of
obstruction it will certainly be chosen
by some of those who are intending to
embark in new smelting enterprises
We have now a prospect of building
up a city as large as Butte in the
Crow's Nest Coal district, and if we
turn away tbe good fortune at our
door we may delay the development
of the district for half a century. We
have an immediate prospect of an immense coal industry and big smelting
enterprises in Southern British Columbia, all depending upon the adoption
of a liberal and reasonable railway
policy. Above the questions of conflicting interests between railway corporations is the broader question of
freedom in the development of a railway policy. Tho carrying and assembling ot our mineral in Southern British Columbia must follow the natural
channels, whether or not they conform to political imaginary lines.
Grades are of more importance than
distance, and we must adapt our railway policy to the physical features of
the country. We must not force the
shipment of low grade ores on higli
grade milways, and the great bulk of
the mining development in British
Columbia must be in low grade ores.
[f railway men are not obstructed
they will follow the natural conformation of the country. It was
a mistake to prevent the build:
ing of a railway along the
Kettle River valley and much of
the ores of that district will yet have
to be shipped out by that route If they
are to be shipped at all. An extreme
case of the folly of attempting to
make railway lines conform to political boundaries is furniBhed by the
Velvet mine, in which Sir Charles
Tupper is largely interested. It is on
the Canadian side, aud there is absolutely no means of access to it except
from the south. If you pursue a Chinese policy in the matter of railways,
that mine will remain for ever undeveloped. If you appear afraid to
allow the construction of lines from
the Great Northern system up the na-
turul highways of tlie country, you
will drive off tlie capital aud enterprise you have been seeking in all
the financial centres of the globe.
The ores must go around the mouo-
tuiu ranges, not across them, and that
can be done only by making use of the
American railway systems. Tlie
bonding privileges will often have to
be invoked to transport ores, coal and
other     minerals     between   points   in
Southern British  Columbia, and you
must make Jour policy conform to
that situation. Here are men asking
neither bounty nor favor, and are
willing to build witli their own money
a line clearly essential to the development of tbe coal district of the Crow's
Nest Pass, essential also to the establishment of u smelting plant where it
is needed on our side of the line. If
you tell us you do not want our Investments you will deserve the loss
und delaj'a that such a policy entail.
The Miner's spuciul correspondent
at Vlotoria thirks It is by no means
certain that the Charter will be grant
ed, as the premier leans towards the.
C. P. R. side of the controversy. The
Victoria Times cannot understand why
the C, P. R. shoulid be opposed to
the building of the proposed road. It
says: "In fact, the more the matte., is
looked into the more difficult it be
comes to understand why the transcontinental railway is opposing that
charter at all. When tlie line is open
there is not tlie leust doubt that there
will be a great quickening of tlie business life of British Columbiu, und as
the C. P. R. is intimately connected,
with that life it cannot but partake
of the general prosperity, l'eihaps
when it has its attention drawn to
this aspect of the matter it will precipitately withdraw  its   oppo... v.v.

The 'nore the new school bill is in-

its way clear to amend or withdraw

Andrew Carnegie is apparently doing the best he can to avoid doing

Joe Martin got very indignant in

easily be surmised that Joe is not in
a very nleasaut mood these days���the
announcement which be made a short
time ago that he would soon resign
having elicited a great outburst of applause from the country at large,
It ufl'ords the Miner very great satisfaction to be able to announce that
there is a likelihood of a Hour mill
being added to the list of Nelson's industries in the very near future. Mr.
Fidel's argument in support of his
contention that Nelson possesses very
superior advantages at j. site ,or the

The announcement that tlie affairs
of the Chapleau Consolidated Mining
company will soon be put'in such
shape as to permit of the property being operated again at an early date,
will cause very great satisfaction
throughout the district. The gentlemen who have put their money into the
proposition are to be commended for
the pluck they are displaying under
circumstances which were somewhat discouraging; and everyone will
hope they may be adequately rewarded for their enterprise.

At a time when it is reported that
the government Is considering the
granting of subsidies running into
millions, it seems almost like making
a burlesque of the conduct of public
affairs to suggest that the man earning ten or twelve dollars a week is to
be made to contribute an additional
two dollars to the Provincial treasury.

The men interested in the industries
which it is alleged,; will be] ruined if.

not seem to be at all perturbed by the
dreadful pictures that have been
drawn by tbe agents ot the C. P. R.
They observe, doubtless, that Mr. Hill
and his associates have invested a
large amount of money in the Crow's
Nest mines, and that that is a guarantee that nothing will be done to
arouse tne antaognism of Canadians.���
Victoria Times.
The feeling which prevailed a few
weeks ago in tavor of the locking up
of the Crow's Nest coal country, and
making it a piesevre for the Canadian
Pacific, is rapidly giving way to a
feeling in favor of a general open
door policy. This feeling we are
pleased to learn extends from west to
east, and there is not the slightest
doubt as to the application for anoth
er line into the Crow's Nest Pass
country being carried with flying
colors.���Vancouver World.
As for the charter for the railway
asked for. there should not be the
slightest hesitation about granting
it, nor would there be were it not for
the fact that interested parties are
endeavoring to obtain a railway monopoly in tins section. The eyes of the
Federal government have been opened,
and the members see that they cannot afford to longer ignore the petitions of the people of the mining sections of British Columbia for competing railways and for charters for
roads ovei which the surplus products
produced iu the province can be hauled to profitable markets.���Rossland

In the first place the proposal to increase tlie revenue tax from 83 to 85 is
a very lame way of grappling with
the financial requirements. It is a
very easy way of increasing the revenue, and it is a very effective way,
but having said that, nothing more
can be advanced in its favor. On
the other hand much can be said
against it. It is a tax that entails
more hardship on tbe wage earners
than any other class, and while others may escape its payment, it is always exacted from the man who

The announcement tbat Mr. Andrew
Carnegie has offered to give $50,000
for a free library building in Vancouver will unquestionalby be received
with surprise and delight by the people of this city. Naturally enough
the generous donor imposes conditions
but these are of so liberal a character that their immediate acceptance
may be counted on. Briefly, he asks
that the city provide a site for the
building, and guarantee an annual
expenditure of at least 85,000 on the
library. The estimated expenses of
the present library for next year exceed 85,000, so that no objection can
be taken on that score, and it is
very certain that a suitable site will
not be hard to flud.���Vancouver Province.

COMMUNICATIONS
HOSPITAL  MATTERS.
To tho Editor,���In reference to a
statement in your paper of yesterday
that the unqualilieil dismissal of the
retiring directors of the Kootenuy
Luke General Hospital "cnine iih a sur-
prse to those who were not aware
that certain matters ut issue iu connection with the munugeinent of the
hospital had given rise to friction,"
I feci It only light that the public
should Unow that as directors we have
hail no filotion���further, that we have
not received one eomplniut from any
of the doctors, uud thut tho only trouble wo as a board experienced
was tho dlHIculty of collecting certain monies due to the institution.
We have endeavored to deal fairly,
giving equal privileges to all the medical men and we court investigation.
We desired the best interests of the
hospitni by striving to get the n
counts due the institution paid,
these be faults, I leuve the public
judge.
The future policy of any board
usually moulded by its existing need
and our plan (which will be traced
our minutes are icferred to) was to
'use the cottage just completed to relieve the immediate pressure until the
new wing In contemplation was erected. (The secretary has plans fully
bearing out my statement). The
operating room of necessity would
be otherwise located. On tho completion of tho whig, tho cottage would
bo utilized for rurses' quarters. In
view of tills we refused a house on an
18 months' lease and took one for six
months as a temporary home for our
nurses.
Had there boon a fair and open attack nt our general meeting these facts
would have been before the public,but
as extraordinary method were used
we were never allowed an opportunity, therefore, I consider that in fairness to tho public und the dismissed
directors these explanations are necessary.

A DEER l'AItlv STRIKE.
Property in a New So'tion Has a Remarkable Ore Showing.
Rossland, March 14.--Word reached
this city today of an Important strike
on the llluo Bird, one of the properties of tlie Montana Gold Mining company. The properties of the company
are located near Deer Park on Lower
Arrow Lake. A shaft hud been sunk
100 feet and a cross cut was made
from its bottom IBIS feet. At this point
the ledge was tapped, and it has been
cros-s cut for 11 feet nnd the hanging
wall is not yet in eight. The ore
averages 837.Oil to the ton.
The management Ib greatly pleased
with the find and as soon as the ledge
is drifted on, the intention is to commence stuping and shipping the ore.
The stuke is the most important that
has yet been made along Lower Arrow lake. The headquarters of the
Montana Gold Mining Co. are in Spokane.
NEW REGULATIONS.
New regulation respecting the disposal of coal lands in Hritish Columbia have been made. They provide
that lauds containing anthracite coal
may be sold at au upset price of $:;!>
per acre, and coul other than anthracite at an upset price of 810 per acre,
or may be sold by public competition
if the minister of tlie interior shall
so decide. Payment for land iii cash
or scrip shall be made when the application is granted, or payment may
be made of one-quarter of the purchase price only and the balance iu
three equal annual instalments with
interest at the rate of six per cent,
per annum upon tbe unpaid balances.
Scrip, however, cannot be accepted
unless payment is made in full at the
time of the sale. If payment is not
made accordingly the right to purchase will be cancelled. In addition
to the above a royalty at such rates
which mny from time to time bo specified by order in council will be levied
and collected on the gross output of
the mine.
The news that the Vancouver-Victoria ferry service is to be improved
immediately will be hailed with joy
on all sides. Capt. Troup has sized
up the situation with his usual
promptness and a new fust boat is to
be built. It might be suggested that
as a delicate compliment to the new
manager the bout should be called
the Troupship.���Vancouver   Province.

A CURIOUS CANINE���
Engineer Billie McNabb of the C.
P. R. has a canine with remarkable
tastes. Yesterday Mr. McNabb was
tossing a four-hit piece in the air
when it slipped through his fingers
and rolled on the lloor. The dog
promptly pounced on the coin and
bolted it with evident pleasure. The
owner could not believe that the dog
had really swallowed the money an
tested it again with a two-bit piece.
To his surprise the dog put away the
second coin and barked for more.
Now Billie wants his money back and
the dog is to be subjected to an X ray
test to see how much more bullion it
may contain.
Within a year Nelson peoplo may be
baking bread of Hour ground within
the city limits. Benjamin Kriel of Cal-
gry wants to build a Hour mill in this
city and will do so if he can arrange
with the city council for power from
Cottonwood creek.
For some lime Mr. Frlcl has been
in communication with Mr. Joseph
Jackson of this city. The result of
the correspondence is that Mr. Frlel
has made a definite proposition to the
above effect, i. e.. be will build a mill
in Nelson if he can secure water
power.
Some time ago Mr. Friel visited
Nelson and inspected the site of the
city's water power on Cottonwood
creek. He found then that by car
rying the waste water by a Hnme to
some point on the fiats he could secure
power enough to operate a floui
mill, he then contemp. ;,- I ldlng.
Since that time he has looked Into
the question of the price of Hour in
Nelson and the Kootenays End the
cat rying charges on wheat from the
Northwest Territories. He has secured-
from the C. P. R. the promise of
rate that will enable him to bring
wheat to Nelson, grind it into flour
here and sell the flour at a lower price
than that article can now be purchas
cd at here.
The greater portion of the flour used
in Nelson today is ground by the Ogil
| vie Milling Co. nt Winnipeg or the
; Luke of the Woods Milling Co.at Kee
I watin, a point still further east than
I Winnipeg. The wheat ground there
I is all grown west of Winnipeg. It is
hauled east to Winnipeg and Kee-
watin and then back to Western
points in the form of flour and other
such products. Keewatin has become
a milling point because of the excellent water power there, aod in spite
of the fact that It is some distance
from the wheat fields.
With the water power about Nelson
and the advantages which it possesses
in being closer to the wheat fields,
there seems no reason why Nelson
should not some day become a flour
milling centre. In any event Mr.
Friel is willing to take a chance and
it remains for tlie council to say
whether or not he will be given an
opportunity.
NEW NURSES- '
At a meeting of tlie directors of the
genera! hospital it was decided to increase the strength of the nursing
staff by adding Miss Ferris, a graduate of tlie Royal Victoria hospitni,
and Miss Hushfield. a graduate of the
(iuelph and Toronto general hospitals,
to the corps of trained nurses, and to
accept Miss Nina Smith as a probationer. This will increase the staff to
ten trained nurses and three probationers.
MOKE MEN���
More men will be put to work by
the corporation officia'.s today. Among
the enterprises authorized by the
council is the continuation of the
sewer from the corner of Falls street
to the Sherbrooke hotel. It is proposed to use the material from the
excavations at the Hotel Phair to fill
in Baker street near the Sherbrooke,
ar.d the idea is to have the sewer laid
now, when a minimum amount of excavation will have to be done,
RETALIATION RECOMMENDED���
The lumber interests of tbe province
are shut out of the American markets
by a duty of 82 per thousand on lumber and 30 cents per thousand on
shingles. American mills operated
almost exclusively by Mongolian labor can glut the British Columbia
markets with lumber at figures which
the local men cannot meet if they retain white labor. To equalize matters the lumbeimcn are petitioning
for an import duty equal to that im-
pBed by tlie United States government
to be maintained as long as the Unit
ed States continues to one,' ;
against' the Canadian prodnot, n"
Nelson board of tiade hacked up tne
lumbermen's application at last
night's meeting.
