Draft of  Canada Northern
Agreement to be Brought
Down.
Victoria, March 3.���The address in
reply to the speech from the throne,
was moved this afternoon by Mr.
Clifford and seconded by Mr. Hall.
Mr. McBrido replied in a lengthy
speeoh in which he explained his
withdrawal from the government,
alleging it was puicly because he
could not remain in a government
wbich was organized on anti-Martin
lines but afturw trd had taken in Mr.
Martin's lieutenant, lie opposed tiap

ANOTHER RACE PERHAPS.
Shamrock II and Columbia May Again
Have a Contest.
New York, March 8.���0. W. Post,
of Battle Creek, Mich., who offered to
charter tbe Shamrock II in eider to
race her against the Columbia, tho
Shamrock to have an American and
Columbia an English crew,has received a letter from Sir Thomas Lipton
in which the lattor says: "In thc flrst
place 1 do not know whether or not
tho Columbia will be in commission
tbis season, but if so it would in my
opinion, be a far better test to race
Sharurcck II against the Columbia
with tho latter vossel's own skipper
and a crew of Americans and if yon
wish to do this, I will not accept a
charter oi tbo Shamrock II as you so
kindly offer, but I will let you have
the use of her during the coming season without charge, on tho condition
that you fit her out in racing trim and
pay all expenses for the raoing season.
"I do not wish to discourage you,
bnt I feel certain that the Columbia
would liok you."
Mr. Post said tnat to race both boats
with Ameiioan crews would not decide
whether American or llritish yachtsmen were superior. He maintained
that an Americau crew could get better results from the Shamrock and
that a British crew would get less
speed from the .Columbia. De believed
that under these conditions the Shamrock would win. He said he would
send a representative to London to
complete arrangements with Sir
Thomas Lipton.
U. S. SHIPPING HILL.
Senator Frye's Speech on it Listened
to With Deep Attention.
Washington, March 3 ���The senate
today began consideration of what is
known as the shipping bill, a measure to provice (or ocean mail service
between the United States and foreign
ports, and for tbe Common defence, to
promote commerce and to encourage
deep sea fisheries.
Mr. Frye. of Maine, enainnsn of
tbe committee on commerce, made tbe
opening statements in support of the
bill. Ho occupied the floor for nearly
two hours. The policy of protection,
which has been applied, he said, to
American industries has not been applied to the shipping industry. The
result of the shortsighted policy has
been tho decadence of American merchant marine and the consequent
humiliation of Americans engaged in
the Bhipping industry. He was listened to with the closest attention by the
senators on both bides of the
chamber.

Hawley. The company's officers will
be re-elected at the organization of
the board tomorrow. Vice-president
O.'.Q. Ward addressod those present on
wireless      telegraphy. He     said:
While wo do not Intend to belittlo
the credit due to Mr. Marconi for the
advancement he has made in that
field, we have every confidence in Jho
ability of submarine cables to maintain their commorcial supremacy in
competition with wireless telegraphy,
even shonld it ever extend beyond its
present experimental stage, as regards
trans-Atlantic or othor long distance
transmissions,"

Prince Henry's Visit but Upholds Past Good Relations.
MORE MONEY
FOR BERNIER
Englishmen Subscribe Liberally Towards His Polar
Expedition,
Chancellor's Declaration Is Montreal Anxious for Stanley
Heartily Applauded ln
Reichstag.
Berlin. March 3.���In the Reichstag
today Herr Gradnauer, sooial democrat, ridiculed the idea ot auy advantage from Prince Henry'B visit. He
said it was very ingenious to expect
any improvement in the relations
between Germany and the United
States to result from such a journey.
Replying, Count Von Buelow said
he deeply regretted the temarks of the
last speaker especially in view of the
splendid welcome that Prince Henry
waa receiving from the American
people.
Thia remark of Count Von Buelow
was greeted with applause from all
sections of the bonse. Continuing,
the Imperial chancellor said that the
journey of the Emperor's brother had
no political object save the natural
one of upholding the traditional good
relations betweenj) Prussia, Germany
and the United States which had existed since the days of the Great
Frederiok and the Great   Washington.
Both nations, said Count Von Buelow, have every reason for mutual
esteem., They have no oocasion whatever, to besmirch one another or dispute with another. They have every
iuterest for living in peace and friendship based upon emu pie to reciprocity
even in the most remote future. My
oye perceives no point where the
political way of the German and
American people eross. I made this
statement in this house some three
years ago. I then was nnder tbe impression that I was in sympathy with
tne great majority of this house. Of
this 1 am now convinced. I am not
saying this for Germany alono, but
also from abroad. I am further con
vinced that I also agree with the great
majority of this house when I recognize tbat tbe German people bave
viewed with lively satisfaction thc
hospitable, chivalrous and brilliant
reception which the American nation
has accorded the brother of the German emperor.
Tbe Imperial chancellor concluded
hia remarks amid the applause of the
house. Count Von Buelow also
assured the Reichstag, in a somewhat
lengthy speech, tbat there was not
the slightest likelihood or desirability of Germany taking any steps to
interfere in the course of affairs in
South Afiica. Such a course said the
speaker, was not in accordance with
German interests and policy.

KEPT THE
GOLD BRICK
HATflER A CLOSE SHAVE.
A Train Has a Race With a Broken
Ice Jam and Wins.
Fort Plain, N. Y., March 3.-The
flood in the Mohawk valley yesterday
did great damage. Between here and
Palatine bridge, for a distance of
three-quarters of a mile, the N. Y. C.
roadbed was washed away. An immense jam of ice suddenly began to
move with great rapidity and bore
down on a work train that was passing east. The engineer quickly realized the danger and with full force
made his train fairly jump, until it
reached a point of safety. As the huge
mass of ice tumbled along it cut down
15 telegraph poles as if they were so
many stiaws. At points both east and
west from nere the bank between the
Mohawk river and the Erie canal has
been washed away. The loss to the
state will be heavy and the havoc now
being wrought to the canal will certainly delay the opening of navigation on the canal.
MOHAWK FLOODS SUBSIDE.
Schnectady, March 3.--The Mohawk
has again swollen to high water mark
today as a result of yesterday's rain
and fears wero entertained that
Scotia, a suburb along the livei,
wonld be wiped out. The new shop of
the American Locomotive company
and Alpha Knitting mills are flooded.
Toward evening the water in the
Mohawk commenced to recede and
danger is again averted. Trains ou
tho New York Central and Delaware
and Hudson lines are being run without any regard to schedule and Cen-
tial trains take West Sbore tracks at
Hoffman's, 10 miles west of tbis city.
A RISING RIVER.
Ogdensburg, N, Y., Marob 3.���The
water ln the Oswegatchie roso two
feet during the night, caused by the
heavy rain yesterday. The lower floor
of mills are flooded with water. The
docks aro under water and valuable
lumber and timber are boing carried
away. An ice gorge was formed at
the bridge connecting Ford and Lake
streets and should the ice above the
dam give way, heavy damage will
result.
THE WATERS SUBSIDE.
Wilkesbarre, Pa., Maroh 3.���The
high water in the Susquehanna rivet-
is tailing rapidly tonight and the
worst ib over. Tne river was almost
stationary fiom 10 o'clock last night

REPORTED REBEL VICTORY.
Libertador Bomba ds a Port and Panic
Prevails in Vicinity.
Port of Spain, Trinidad, March 3.���
The steamer Libertador now operating iu tho interest of the Matos revolution against President Castro, of
Venezuela, and whose name was recently announced to havo been
changed to Bolivar, yeBterday bombarded tbe port of Gniria, for tbe
purpose of protecting the landing of
insurgents for supplies thore. Detnilh
of, this action cannot be obtained but
it is bclfeved here that the government came out second best in tho
affair. This belief arises from the
fact that there Is a panic at Carupano
where measures of defense aro being
adopted.
Simon Pleff and II. J. I.allrash, of
Ymir, are at tbe provincial jail iu
Nelson, awaiting trial tllis morning
before Stipendiary Magistrate Crease
on a rather unique charge. It appears
that on Sunoay last P. J. Nichols,
lesse of the Fern mine, was superintending the monthly clean-up of tho
mine. With him were working iu the
labratory the two prisoners. As a result of the cleanup there was a brick
of gold valued at $700. This brick
Pleff and I.allrash arc said to have
kept possession of, informing cho
manager that as their wanes were considerably in arrears they would cut
off enough from the brick to satisfy
their claims. This, the prisoners
statu, they did, returning tlie balance
to Mr.Nicbolls,together with a receipt
for tho amount received. Tho latter,
from information received, learned
tbat tbe two men wero coming into
Nelson by the evening train and immediately left or the oity on foot, and
on arrival had a warrant issued for
their arrest. The charge is as follows:
"Tnat they, the said Simon Pleff and
H. J. Laltiash, at the I'ern mine near
HaU Siding in tho country of Kootenay on the 'loot day of Match, 1909,
being then and thorn servants to P. J.
Nicbolls, tlieir master, did unlawfully
steal a ocrtaiu gold brick of tho value
of $700 from P. J. Nicbolls, their
master.''
The two men came into Nelson on
Sunday and pioceoded to the KIon-
dyke hotel, where they were shortly
afterwards arrested by the police, two
portions of a gold brick having been
placed in the possession of tbo hotel-
keeper by them on arrival. They w��ro
brought up for trial Defore Magistrate
Crease yesterday morning, It. M. McDonald acting for the prosecution.
A. Johnston, of the Klondyke hotel,
was called as a witness, and stated
that on tbe ovening of Sunday, March
2nd, the prisoner Pleff deposited with
him two portions of a goldbrick
(which he produced in court and
whicb were made an exhibit in the
case, I weighing about 85 ounces.
At this stage the prisoners stated
that they wished to be represented by
conusol and tbe case was adjourned
until 10.30 this morning when it will
again come up for trial, the defense
being taken by S, S. Taylor. The case
will be tried in the otlice of the provincial police.

terests must ne made consonant with
Canadian interests in Canadian mutters. Tnls is tbe most important question tbat is in the political aiena and
changes that may eventually become
momentous depend upon how statesmen on both sides of the water
grapple with it.
OUR INTERESTS PARAMOUNT.
The tone in whioh two rather remarkable speeches in tho Ilouse of
Commons were recieved, added to the
speeches themselves,indicates strongly
though quietly, the trend of a sentiment, in Eastern Canada at leaBt,
which no recent event has given opportunity for tbe expression of.
Mr. Bourassa, member for Labelle,
is asking for papers regarding the
negotiations which lead up to the
abrogation of tho Clayton-Bulwer
tieaty, drew attention to the fact that
in these negotiations the question of
the Alaskan boundary had not been
taken into consideration at all. He
maintained tbat Oreat liritain bad
continually sacrificed the interests of
Canada to what sho considered Imperial interests. Such words coining
from Mr. Hourassa, who has been accused of being not loyal to Uritish
connection, would nut have occasioned
much comment but what is remark-
aole is that the premier in declining
to bring down the papers,which could
not be done as tho work of the Joint
High commission is not yet finished,
did not administer a stinging rebuke
to the outspoken member, but said
Ins opinion might not bo so much
different from that expressed by the
member for Labelle doing farther
there was not a member even of the
Conservative party, which has in times
past arrogated to itself the custodian
ship ol the loaylly of Canada, expressed any sentiment different from that
of Mr. Hourassa, remaining silent on
the question. One member, it is true,
launched into a tirade against the
encroachments of tho United States
but be was alone in such a course,
though also, none showod any love for
the republi- to the south.
Following on this comes the speech
of John Charlton, meinour for Norfolk, who is unowu to have given
close study to trade questions, in
which ho showed that Canadian goods
are practically shut out of the Unitod
Htatos by the high tariff wall while
we purchase more from that country
than from any other. De advocated
letaliatary or preferential taiiff, as
tbe case may be, not only with the
United States but also with any other
nation. Ho also pointed out that the
importation of goods from Oreat
llritain nail shown no marked increase
in spito of the pieferential duties and
be suggested greater preference.
Carried to its logical connlusion Mr.
Charlton's programme of special
duties or preferences in duties to each
nation, means notlnug more nor less
tban the right to make treaties touching on matters of trado by Canada
independent of the policy of Oreat
liritain. Though lho name of
"treaty" may not be used the result
would be the same, and this npons the
question of how far Canadian interests
shall bo made subservient to the policy
of tho mother country.
Coming close ou the heels of these
unusual sprechs iu tlio house of com.
mons is tbe cable dispatch from London to the effect that the Canadian
ministers havo delivered what is practically an ultimatum to the Colonial
oflice that an end must lie put to the
continued concessions to the United
States, which may or may not be a
true representaticn of tbo facts, but
[torn Sir Wilfrid Laurler's remark ln
replying to Mr. Hourassa there is just
a possibility of truth in the cable.
Tbe Manchester (luardiau. which is by
no means an Insignificant journal,
hints that Canadian statesmcu could
make a better bargain with the
Unitod States thin. Uritish diplomats
have up to the present been able to.
These incidents would tmll eate tbat
there fs n strong sentiment in Canada,
which hitherto lias not found expression, that Canadian interests must
be made paramount iii   this   country;
TOURIST ASSOCIATION.
The interest displayed in the proposed tourist association is large and
growing and the outlook is that the
people of Nelson will take hold of it
energetically and make it a useful
institution Every property owr,er,
merchant, business and professional
man; In short, every interest will be
benefited by tbe work of the association and all should take a band in
making it successful. Similar associations hive proven of great benefit
'n oommunitics where the attractions
and facilities for sportsmen are not
nearly as good as they are here. If
the proper means, therefore, are
adopted the tourist association cannot
fail in being of great advantage to
the city. It will require a long pull,
a strong pull, and pull together, to
bring it up to the highest state uf
efficiency, and hence all should work
in harmony to accomplish the ends
sought for. Ibe meeting tonight
should be attended by all who desire
to see Nelson an important place. Iu
the selection of the executive the very
best men should be picked as if individuals who lack energy and public
spirit are chosen they will accomplish
little or nothing and the association
might just as well not be formed ; on
the other band,if just the right sort of
men are put st the head of the affairs
of the society it is certain to make a
brilliant and useful record for itself.
It i9, therefore, hoped that the meeting tonight will be well attended,
that nothing will be done in a perfunctory manner, and that as much
earnestness and as much care be displayed in properly launchng the association as ls taken by those wno
make it up in their business and
personal affairs. It should be a
genuine manifestation of the spirit
that has made Nelson the successful
plaoe that it is.
A TEST CASE.
The question of whether a divorce
granted'in the United States, where
tbe parties were married in Canada, is
legal ana consequently reoognizable
by tho courts of the Dominion, is to
be formally decided by the court of
appoal fcr Ontario. The appeal has
been prepared by tbe Crown and tbe
case stated asks that tbe following
points be passed on: Is a divorce
granted to either party from a marriage contracted in Canada pronounoed
by a United States court fot "extreme
cruelty." a cause recognized as sufficient by the laws of that state, but a
cause not recognized as a sufficient
ground for divorce in Canada, to be
considered a valid decree in Canada?
If sucb a divoice is considered binding in Canada, does it constitute in
law a good defence to bigamy.
The appeal grew out of the celebrated oase of Miune G. Woods found
guilty of bigamy, wbo married Dr.W.
N. Barnhard, in Windsor. Afterwards
in the stato of Michigan she secured a
dissolution of tbo bonds that tied her
to Dr. Barnhard. After threo years
of single blessedness she married John
Pendril and was arrested, convicted
and sentenced on a charge of bigamy,
the Ontario court holding that the
divorce granted in the United .states
was null and void as applied to those
married in Canada.
CHIEF JUSTICE HUNTER.
The appointment of Gordon Hunter,
K.C., to the exalted oflice of Chief
Justice of '.ho Supremo court of Uritish Columbia will bo regarded favorably throughout the province. The
now chief justice stands high as a
lawyer, his opinion carrying grea^
weight with the bench. Mr. Hunter
has never taken an activo part in
politics, but when ho did it was invariably in the direction of purifying
the political atmosphere, lu private
life he is a most entertaining and
brilliant conversationalist, and though
not apt to make many friends he has a
oapacity for keeping those ho has
made. Mr. Hunter bas not reaohed
his tortieth yoar; iu the natural course
of events he can look forwnid to a
long and useful career on the bench.
Tho Miner unhesitatingly endorses the
many expessions of congatulation by
the provincial press to Mr. Hunter on
his olevation to thc bench.

The Rev. O. P. WELLS, o Villa Ridge,

tell you how thankful I feel for the good
derived from it. I was a slave, ohained
with putrid sore throat and asthma for ten
years. I despaired of ever being cured. 1
saw your advertisement for the cure of
this dreadful and tormenting disease, Asthma, and thought you had overspoken
yourselves, but resolved to give it a trial.
Tomy astouishment the trial acted like a
charm.    Send me a full size bottle.

Gentlemen : I write this testimonial from a sense of duty, having tested the
wonderful effect of yonr Asthmalene, for the cure of Asthma. My wife has
been nfflcted with spasmodic asthma for tho past 12 years. Having exhausted
my own skill ns well as many others, 1 chanced to see your sign upon your
windows on 130 th street, New York, I at onoe obtained a bottle of Asthmaleno.
My wife commenced taking it about the first of November. I very soon notioed
a radical improvement. After using one bottle her Asthma has disappeared
and she is entirely free from all symptoms. I feel that I can consistently recommend the medicine to all who are afflicted with r.his distressing disease.
Yours respectfully, O. D. PHELPSs, M. D.

Gentlemen i I was troubled with Asthma for 22 years. 1 huve tried numerous remedies, bnt they have all failed. I ran across your advertisement and

I     MINING NEWS.     J
%************************
The annual meeting of the shareholders of the Lillooet, Fraser River
and Cariboo Uoldflelds was held the
other day in London. The company
has, in addition to tbe numerous mining prospects in British Columbia, a
sum of near ��50,000 remaining, wlncli
has been invested in trustee stock. It
is proposed to liquidate the company
as soun as possible and divide the
assets among shareholders who would
thus realize about 20 per cent, upon
their original investment at par.
The Silver Cup people, says the
Lardeau Eagle, bave out nearly 700
tons of the proposed,800-ton output,
nnd it is reported havo also struck a
large new chute of ore in an unexpected portion of the mine, v hieh if takon
out will largely increase the output.
The Nettie L. people are continuing
development work and ore is now
beiPg rawbided down over the wagon
load. Work is being prosecuted ou
the Black Warrior,Horseshoe,Beatrice,
and a few individual properties, but
of course there can be very little real
activity expected tor a couple of
months yet.
Speaking of the old Big Bend diggings, Wi Haley, who was there in
those days, informs the Kootenay
Mail, that the best gold was got on
French creek where pay gold was
found /or two miles extending up the
creek. There was only one claim
wbich paid on MeCullough creek,
(iood prospects were got on Smith and
Camp creeks bnt he is not aware of
any claims being reckoned as paying
ground.
G. Lafnrme returned some days ago
to Revelstoke, from tne Prince company's property in Standard Basin,
and reports the mine looking well.
Work is now being continued in No. 3
tunnel to cut the lead at about 300
feet depth, under where tbe rich ore
was recently struck.
It is estimated that at least if 150,000
has been spent on tve development of
mineral claims in the Big Bend, and
(000,000 on placer and deep sinking
and hvdrauliciiig operation thore.

TOURIST ASSOCIATION.
A Meeting to Be Held at S This Evening to Form One.
This evening at H o'clock a meeting
will be Held in the Board of Trade
looms of those interested in the formation of a Tourist Association. Tbe
meeting is called to lay before those
wbo attend the objects, methods of
works, and particulars of similar: organizations in other cities and towns,
and it is hopea that the whole will be
thoroughly discussed, A large number
of the leading business men of the
city have promised to attend and a
clear under-tanding of the feasibility
of the plan or otherwise should be
arrived at. At the meeting tbe following points aro among those to be
discussed.
1. What attractions Nelson has to
offer to the tourist.
2. Where tourists can be brought
(rem to this city and tbe best and
cheapest methods of inducing them to
come.
8. What the work of the Nelson
Associatioan should be besides bringing the tourists here.
4. Tourist associations at other
places and what they have accomplished.
If Nelson was on tbe main line of
either of the two railway systems that
call here it would not be necessary to
have a Tourist association as hoth
would then have an incentive to advertise lt. As it is both those railways have their own resorts where thej
have put in hotels and invested considerable capital, and under such
circumstances it ia not to their inter'
est to divert travel from the main
lines thereby luting any of the benefit
that at present accrue from such
travel. If Nelson wishes to get any
of this tourist traffic it must be by thc
work of her citizes it will be induced
to come,
It is reported on good authority that
the C.P.R. intends next season to take
one of their steamers off Kootenay
lake, running only one which will
ply between Kaslo and Kootenay
Landing, calling at Procter where
pas sengers tu or from Nelson and the
west will be transferred to the train.
If lhe Tourist Association is taken
hold of properly, instead of talking of
taking off a steamer thore would soon
be a necessity for another running
between Nelson and Procter during
tbe summer, calling at a number of
camps and summer resorts.
One of the features proposed in connection with tho association is that
there should be sumething arranged to
take place every Saturday in Nel son.
The great success of tbe regattas, got
up by the boat club last summer, shows
that if thiB is taken hold of by tbe
citizens generally It would be an easy
matter   to arrange ao tliat eaoh Satur
day that visitors from surrounding
towns will be certain of finding something going on in Nelson, with a band
concert in the evening to finish with.
There are plenty of enthusiastic
amateurs in the city and with baseball, football, lacrosse, bosines the
boat races mentioned, it should be
possible tu make a most attractive
list, with a match or race each Saturday. If special Saturday to Monday
rates can be arranged on the steamers
and by rail there is no doubt that
there would be a good influx of
visitors. In connection wilh this the
proposed race track would also be of
great help as there are said to be a
number of local men who would be
willing to put tlieir money into til's
latter enterprise.

WINDERMERE DISTRICT.
Eight   Shippers   In   the   Vicinity   of
Peterborough.
Peterborough, Windermere District,
Feb. 27.���The following properties
are shipping this winter viz., Del-
phine group, M. T. fraction,Paradise,
Iron Cap, Silver King, Rod Line,
Silver Belt, and Banyon.
Thomas Starbird, representing^ an
American syndicate, recently purchased the Silver King group ou McDonald creek, irom B. C, Burton, et
al. The property was purchased outright for a large cash figure.. The
property is a vory rich silver-lead
proposition.
Tho Paradise mine is improving
daily undor tho able ioremanship of
John I, McMullan, a practical man,
from the grass roots. This proporty
shipped 1,000 tons last wnter. This
winter Capt. F. P. Armstrong has the
contract for transporting the ore fiom
the mine to Peterborough on thc
Columbia river. Manager R. Randolph
Bruce is to De congratulated for the
systematic way tbat this wonderful
silver-lead property is being operated.
Immense bodies of high grade ore
have been uncovered dnring the
season.
The McDonald Mines, Ltd., the
American syndicate operating the Iron
Cap, Silver Kiug group, and|Red Line
group, on McDonald creek, is cne of
tbe strongest concerns operating in
tbe Kootenay distriot. Thomas Star-
bird, manager lor this syndicate, has
been tbe backbone of the Windermere
district for tbe past four years and has
always taken a keen interest in the
welfare of the camp and has always
(like B. Randolph Bruce) given the
prospector resident here every opportunity to secure a winter's work,
whioh means eveything to a new
camp.
During the past week a petition was
forwarded to the postmaster geueral at
Ottawa, urging that Wllmer be substituted for that of Peterborough, lt
is understood tbat it has caused considerable annoyance from time to time
to the postoflice department on account
of Peterborough, Ontario.
R. 8. Gallop expects to develop the
Shamrock, situated adjoining the
Paradise mine, on Spring creek.tribu
tary of Toby creek, during the present
season and has already surveyed the
group in anticipation of applying for
crown grant.
A large town ball will be erected
here in the immediate future.
Everything points to a livelv summer in this district.

discordant note in the preparations for
the King's coronation has been
sounded. The Borough Council of
Bsttersea, tho most socialistic district
in London, which is represented in

finance committee to vote a sum of
money for tho coronation celebrations,
Deputations of labor and socialist
organizations attended to oppose any
appropriation for tbis purpose. Some
of the speeches were most violent, but
tbey drew applause from the public
galleries. Tbe mayor frequently
called the speakers to order for die
respect to tho King, who, one speaker
aaid, should bo crowned with crape,
owing to the war. Tho council, by a
vote of 31 to 18, re-referred the scheme
to the committee.

CHINESE COMMISSION.
A Majority Suggest a Per Capita   Tax
of SnOO Be Imposed.
Ottawa, Feb. 27.���The"report oi the
Chinese commission, consisting of 040
pages of typewriting, was tabled thi
afternoon. The conclusions of the
commissioners, which occupy abont 4:
pages, may be briefly summed up a
follows: The farming community in
British Columbia, excepting only the
large laud-owners who lent theii
lands to the Chinese, favor exclusion.
The manager of the New Vancouver
Coal company, the largest exporter of
coal, favors exclusion. Hon. James
Dunsmur, president of another colliery
favors higher restiiotion and the enforcement of the Natal act. The gen
eral manager of tho Wellington colliery favors nnrestrioted immigration.
Two of the principal exporters of
lumber favoi exclusion. In the
shingle husiness Chinese are employed
iu considerable numbers, and are ro
garded as necessary to the trade. The
Chinese immigration is not likely to
seriously affect tho industry, as there
are sufficient Chinese now in the
country to carry on the business. As
cooks and assistants in hotels the
Chinese are regarded favorably by
their employers. However, if they
were excluded a better class of mon
would become available for these
positions. In domestic service they are
considered very valuable, as servant
girls are not easily to be Had. The
commissioners ure of opinion that the
interests joi the country are not promoted by unduly stimulating an unlimited supply of ehe;ip labor.
In unskilled labor the Chinese, by
working at a lower wage, bar out
whito labor. The constant presence of
Chinese is a real danger to the existence of the whito workingrnnn. He
becomes dissatisfied, and in many
cases leaves the province, or if he
remains advises bis friends not to
come. The laot is established that
white laboring men cannot compete
with tho Chinese and decently support
their families. The decision is reached that tbe Chinese keep out immigrants who would become permanent
citizens, and create conditions inimical tj labor ami dangerous to the in
dustrial peace of the community
whore they reside, spend little of their
money, and trade oh'efly with their
own people. Tho commissioners believe it is impossible ior the province
of British Columbia to take its plaoe
and part in the Dominion unless its
population is free from any taint of a
servile class not imbued with a Sense
of the duties and responsibilities
appertaining to citizenship. Tho estimated whito population of British
Columbia is 120,000, and 10,000
Chinese. Tho commissioners point out
that British laws recognize that
aliens oan be kept out cf tho country,
especially if as a class they aro undesirable. The commissioners qnito
approve the views of the legislature of
British Columbia, alleging the probability of a great disturbance to tbe
economic conditions of the provinco
and of grave injury being caused to
tho working classes by the large
influx of laborers from China. The
commission find that the capitation
tax at $100 his ineffective and Inadequate. Tbey are of opinion that the
further immigration of Chili eso laborers into Canada ought to he prohibited, and in tho meantime that the
capitation tax should bo raised to
850<l. Messr��. Olute and Foley recommend that tho capitation tax should
ho raised at once, while Commissioner
Munn recommends that S300 should be
imposed for two years, and if a prohibitive treaty lie not obtained within
tbat period, that it be raised to $"iU0.

thereto the words ."the olergymeu of
religious denominations other than
those having archbishops and
bishops.''
The honorable member's chief point
was that in this country all religious
denominations should be on tho same
footing.
The premier, in reply, said that the
question, though cf no great import-.
ar.ee, was yet one of some difficulty,
ns the govornor-goneral is not free to
follow his own will in the mat'er.
Sir Wilfrid continued-��� 'It is not permitted to him to follow his own inclination as to what degree of Honor
he shall give to thoso whom he invites
to his table. He is Instructed from
Englaud as to how he bhall proceed in
all stato ceromonieds, and as to how
he shall seat those who are his
guests."
The premier added that the task of
forming a table of precedence was ono
of extreme difficulty and full of intricacies. However, the question was
now under consideration of the Bov-
crnment,and in view of this statement
Lieut.-Col. Hughes withdrew his
