TALES OF THE
MAIL SERVICE
Assistant  Provincial  Postal
Inspector Tells of Some
Impeding Changes.
Problem  of How to   Bring
the Eastern Mail Into
Nelson.
.1. ��. Greenfield, assistant provincial postal inspector, spent yesterday
in looking into the matter of the fumigation of mail posted at points
along the Crow's Nest road, where
there is danger of infection from smallpox, lie ascertained tbat the mails
were being disinfected at Fernie and.
Moyie by the proper authorities, and
that the quarantine at Fernie is to
be raised today. Mr. Greenfield will
run over to.both towns before return
ing to the coast to see that matters
are running smoothly.
When approached on the subject of
the desired changes in the local postal arrangements, Mr. Greenfield stated that the question of bringing the
eastern mall into Nelson via the Nelsoni ��fc Bedlington road instead of the
* 8. F. &.N. and N. & V. S. lines hud
been fully reported upon and laid lie
fore the department. Mr. Armstrong,
the' superintendent of railway postal
service, had taken the matter np, and,
as he waa a wideawake official, it
would shortly be known what the department intended to do. Speaking
without official information on tlie
point, Mr. Urcenfield volunteered the
opinion that the department would
comply with the request for the
change.
'���'The difficulty about attaining the
improved service is," lie said, "that
a targe increase in expense is necessitated and that the negotiaitons must
be "carried on with the United States
officials, who will also be put to considerable additional cxepense. Tlie
service will have to be maintained
from Spokane to Northpoit for the
loeal mail to Rossland and other Kootenay points originating in Washington, and on this sjde of the line we
will have to continue to run mail over
the Nelson A Fort Sheppard line to
accommodate Waneta, Erie, Ymir,
Hall, etc.,which are, of course, entitled, to a service. Therefore tne cost of
the service between Spokane and Nelson will not be reduced even when
the bulk of the matter now being bundled that way Is carried via Bonner's
Ferry, as the rate is levied on the
mileage basis regardless of the amount
of matter carried. The distance from
Nelson to the international boundary at Bykerts is 00 miles, and this
will cost the postofiice department five
cents per mile each way���practically
an addition to the present outlay for
carrying mall into the Kootenays of
810 per day.
"Anothor complication enters into
the matter and that is to arrange
things with the United States post-
office people. Under tbe existing
International agreement the Canadian
malls are carried free while on United State* soil, and vice versa. The
United States department is now carrying mall through to Spokane, and
it costs them nothing additional to
take the Canadian mail through, the
same thing applying to the N. A, F.
S. road. The nearest point on the
Great Northern to Itykerts is 30 miles
from the boundary line, so that the
Canadian department, if the change
is effected, will be placed in tlie position of asking the United States department to carry the mail 2(1 miles
for no reason other than to oblige the
Kootenays, ana this may not appeal
to them as strongly as it does to us,
"If- the. Great Northern ran to
the boundary line the problem would
be easy of solution, but I believe that
the proposition is now being taken
up with the United States authorities,
and am of the Impression that the
cbange desired by the business men
of the country will be carried out at
an early date. When the chango Is
made tbe mail will reach Nelson an
bonr earlier than it does now���when
the N. A F. S. train is on time���and
regularity will be more assured. I
look to see the time card on the Nelson A Bedlington changed Boon so
that their trains will connect with
the westbound   (heat   Northern   mail
train. This will bring tbe' eastern
mail into this city ten hours earlier
than at present���an advantage well
worth striving for."
When asked as to the probable
effect of the erection of the new post-
office on the local postal service, Mr.
(ireen field stated that after the new
building was occupied the office would
be placed on a different basis. It
would be known then as a "town
office," and under this arrangement
all the clerks would be furnished by
the department and the postmaster's
salary would be met other than by
the receipts from box rents as at present. The establishment of "town
offices" had been tested in the east
and found to give excellent results to
the public, and he understood the
plan would be adopted for the Nelson
office.
COAST - KOOTENAY ROAD.
CITIZENS   CF    GREENWOOD   DIS-
CUSS IT AND PASS A STRONG
RESOLUTION.
THEY   ADVISE   THAT   ANY   SUBSIDY   GRANTED   SHOULD
BE IN  CASH.
(SPECIAL TO THE MIM.lt.)
Greenwood, B. C, March 9.���Every
seat in the city hall was filled last
night, the occasion being a public
meeting convened by the mayor of
Greenwood to discuss Coast-Kootenay
railway matters, and after numerous
speeches had been made the following resolution was adopted:
"Whereas, the provincial government has declared its intention of introducing a measure providing a subsidy to aid in the construction of the
East Kootenay railway, and,
"Whereas, it is reported that the
Canadian Pacific railway company
are making every effort to secure the
subsidy to assist them in building the
road, and,
"Whereas, cheap freight rates are
essential to the development of the
mining and allied industries of the
province,and in the absence of government ownership of railways, the best
safeguard against excessive freight
charges is competition, therefore
be it
"Resolved, that the citizens of
Greenwood in public meeting assembled, urge upon the provincial government that any subsidy to aid in
the construction of the Coast-Kootenay railway should be in cash granted to a company not likely to fall under the control of the��Canadian Pacific
railway,and made only on the immediate commencement and continuous
construction of such road, and
"Be it further resolved, that copies
of this resolution be forwarded to the
government and members of the provincial legislature."
Another railway projeot brought
forward was one that local men are
applying for a charter for, and after
discussion it was resolved:
"Whereas, an extension of tlie Slm-
swap A. Okanagan railway to Rock
creek or Midway would traverse an
agricultural and mineral country ot
great promise, a country which will
not be served by any other contemplated line of railway, and
"Whereas,an increased traffic which
would accrue from such extension to
the Shuswap A Okanagan railway
would go far to relieve the province of
British Columbia of the annnal Ha-,
bility of 840,000 or thereabouts
inourred by the provincial guarantee
of interest; be it
"Resolved, that this meeting recommends to the favorable consideration of the government any proposal
calculated to secure such' extension
and expresses Its opinion that any
such scheme would be worthy of a
liberal cash subsidy from the province, and should be made only on condition of the Immediate commencement, and continuous construction."
The sampling mill at the Standard
Pyritic Smelting company's smelter
near Greenwood has been started' and
is now at work crushing ore preparatory to blowing in the furnace.
CHINESE WAR TO END.
London, March 9.���A special from
Berlin says it Is understood that the
emperor lias Instructed the imperial
chancellor, Count Vop Buelow ta-order Count Von Waldersee.to cease pre-
partions for the furhter operations
against the Chinese.
EPIDEMIC OF SUICIDES.
New York, Maroh 9.���The police
report of suicides today from midnight last night to 6 o'clock this evening includes eight attempts, seven of
them successful.
BRITAIN WILL
NOT YIELD
No Intention of Modifying of
or Abrogating Clayton-
Bulwer Treaty.
Speeches Made in the Senate
Do not Disturb Downing Street.
London, March- 9.���The reply of
the British government to the note
conveying the amendments of tbe
United. States senate to the Hay-
Panncefote treaty should be formally
delivered by the British ambassador
at Washington to Secretary Hay,
within a few days. The foreign oflice
here did not originally contemplate
delaying the^British reply until now.
The plan appears to have been to
transmit the answer previous to the
date on which the treaty lapsed.
This, according to the British view,
of the case, would have put tbe onus
of its lapsing on the senate. As previously set forth in these despatches,
the main object of the British govern*
ment throughout has been to make an
entirely new arrangement. At no
stage of the proceedings has there
been an inclination to accept the senate's amendments.
It is understood that the nature of
the ^British! government's reply has
already been communicated informally to Secretary Hay. Great Britain
has no intention of modifying or abrogating the Clayton-Bulwer treaty
without a semi quid pro quo.
That treaty, according to the foreign office view of the case, remains
as much in force now as the day it
was signed. The speeches made in the
senate do not disturb Downing street.
They are dismissed with the remark
that; treaties cannot be abrogated
without' the consent of both the contracting parties. There Is, however,
an apparently genuine belief here that
a satisfactory arrangement eventually
will be arrived at, thongh it is scarce-
ly.thought it can be got into requisite shape in time for discussion at the:
extra session of the senate. Moreover, there is a freely expressed disinclination on the part of British official* to commit themselves to any
further treaties until they shall be
thoroughly assured of tlie views of the
senate on the matter.

despatch from Capetown, dated
March 8th, says the Boers lost
forty killed in an engagement
with   an   armored   train    near
'. Rooenoogte.
They mistook tho train for one
loaded with horses and allowed

SHAMROCKS   BEAT     WINNIPEGS.
Montrealero    Downed     Seniors���Play
Victorias on Monday.
(SPECIAL TO THB MINER.)
Wlnnipeg.March 9.���The Shamrocks
of Montreal played their first exhibition hockey match in Winnipeg tonight against the Wlnnlreg senior
team. Play waa even throughout the
first half, the score standing 2 to t at
half time. The Wlnnipegs added another soon alter play was resumed and
the score remained a tie at 3 to 2 until twelve minutes before time. The
Shamrocks then loosened up aud scored four games in quick succession,
winning out by a seroe of 0 to 2.
Trlbey and Scanlan were the particular stars of the Shamrocks, while
Nash, Manning and Killum did good
work for the Winnlpegs. The Sham-
rooks were not In the best of shape tonight and all hockey enthusiasts are
looking for a much better game when
they meet their old opponents, the
Winnipeg Victorias, on Monday night.
ONTABIO MURDER CASE.
Kemptvillc, Ont., March 9.���The
coroner's Jury' in* the Lancelot J.
Banks case, who died from a blow on
the head Thursday morning, has rendered a verdict charging John Garrett,
who stuck the fatal blow, with murder, and James-Gannon and Wm. Dell
as accessories. Newman, the fourth
young man, who was arrested on the
charge of being an accessory was discharged, there being no evidence to
prove his guilt,
Berlin, March 9.���The Tageblatt's
special correspondent who has been
travelling in northern Manchuria,
Mongolia and the borders of Siberia
and China for a year, and whose reports hitherto have been correct without exception, has furnished his paper with a long letter, published today, containing interesting details
regarding the Kusso-Chinese agreement on the subject of Manchuria,
Mongolia and Turkestan. He says he
Is absolutely certain that the published version of this agreement is in no
way near the actual truth. He then
proceeds to give facts concerning tbe
proposed internal administration on
the part of China, demonstrating
that Manchuria will become an integral part of Russia,iraorc so than even
Bokhara.
In regard to Mongolia, he says there
la no doubt a protectorate has been established, as that  is evidenced by the
HOISTING OF RUSSIAN FLAGS
every where, the thorough organization
of the district, the establishment of
tax-collecting offices and the opening
of branches of Russo-Chinese bank
with no one but Russian officials Ip
charge. All of this virtually has
taken place during the past six
months, and began before the Boxer
outbreak. The clearest evidence, however, is contained in an army order issued by General Groderkoff to the Siberian troops, in which the general
said: "You have nobly fulfilled your
task of defending a line, 1,500 kilometers long, on the frontiers]of the
Russian em pi re, from Urga (Mongolia)
to Khoh-Shun, and have thrown back
the enemy across this threatened
line." Besides establishing direct
commnnication with Dalnilamf,
A VICTORY WAS SCORED
for Russia by an immense bribe of
bars of silver, and direct telegraphic
communication now also exists between Kuldja and the Russians in
China, even reaching Sing Fu, where
the Chinese court has been sojourning,
by way of Barkool, Khami and Nan-
chow.
Without the knowledge of either
Europeans or Americans, or their Japanese allies, this correspondent says,
Prince Tuan went to Khan Sn province, where the best Chinese troops
arc formed from the eight millions of
moslems there, which troops are
firmly loyal to Prince Tuun and refuse to serve either against the allies
or for the Chinese court. Perhaps the
most important information furnished by the Tageblatt correspondent Is
that the Russian govenment has caused to be printed, distributed and posted on walls throughout Trans-liaikala
(eastern Siberia) a decree ordering
for March 13, a general
REMOBILIZATION OF TROOPS
in Truns-Kiilkata, in order to put
down new disturbances which have
broken out in China, meaning thereby paitly the Khan Su rebellion under Piince Tuan.
Some additional interesting comment concerning Von Buelow's enunciations on Anglo-German stations
and on President McKlnley's inaugural speech have appeared here. The
opinion is expressed by the leading
newspapers that the chancellor omitted to give any information about the
most important points of Germany's
foreign policy. The Berlin Volks Zei-
tung and othei papers wonder why
Count Von Buelow did not answer
Ilorr Schaedler's (centrist) interpellation regarding the actual condition of
the triple alliance, and about Russia.
The press now says that the inference
is plain that
SOMETHING   IS WRONG
with both.   Italy's  strong anti-triple
alliance party particularly has grown
stronger in   the new  Italian  cabinet,
and un attentive ear   could hear  that
the wiie with Russia is either broken or sadly in need of repairs."
One sentence used by the chancellor
in his speech, aimed solely at Russia,
has given great offence iu that country. This was a quotation from Fred
erick the Great's instructions to Ins
ambassador at St. Petersbuig. saying
he (Frederick the Great) would be
glad to continue Russia's friend, but
would never be Russia's slave. Another of the chancellor's expressions,
namely, that "great monarchs had no
relatives," has displeased the emperor
and the anglophiles at court and in
the army.
The Kleine Journal, whicli is much
read for the court news, first called
attention to this expression. The
German high class newspapers recognize the fact that Count Von Hue-
low could not speak more plainly
about
FOREIGN RELATIONS
under the present delicate state of international politics. Even the Cologne Volks Zeitung and the Vossische
Zeitung agree with this comment
on Von Buelow's remarks.
A number of German papers say that
President McK in ley in his inaugural
address failed to map out the administration's progress. The Boursen Zeitung on Monday last printed an abusive article in which President Me"
Kinley was referred to in uncomplimentary terms, and in which the hope
was expressed that in I'.in-l Mr. Bryan
would have better political issues.
Generally speaking, little interest is
felt in tbe recent inauguration.
Advance sheets of the") article written by Sir Rowland Blenner-Nussett,
commissioner of national education
in Ireland, on the subject of Anlgo-
Saxons and Russians dominating this
country, has met with much criticism.
THE MINERAL PRODUCTION
FIGURES SHOWING THE INCREASE
IN THE VALUE OF THE
OUTPUT.
A ^STATEMENT   OF   THE   TOTAL
MINERAL   PRODUCTION OF
THE PROVINCE.
From the returns of the mineral
production of the Province of British
lolumbia for the year 1900, submitted
to the local legislature by the provincial minister of mines on March 5th,
it Is gathered that there wus during
the year an increase in the value of
the output of the lode mines of the
province of 8-1,310,428 and a decrease
in that of placer gold of 800,170, leaving a net increase in metallic minerals
for the year of 83,244,252. There
was also an increase of 81,013,238 in
the value of coal and coke. No returns are yet available of the value, of
other non-metallic minerals so these
cannot now be taken into account.
The foregoing figures, though, exhibit practically last year's net increase, which was 84,257,490, as shown
in detail in the following table:

453 tons. The respective increases for
1900 over 1898 were: In quantity of
metallic ore mined, 338,852 tons, and
in value of metallic minerals, coal
and coke, 85-052,284, the latter being
an Increase of more than 50 per   cent.

ROSSLAND'S
NEW BEC0HD
Last Week a Record Breaker In Tonnage of Ore
Shipped.
Topped the  Best  Previous
Total by Over 700
Tons.
Rossland, Mareh 9.���The ore ship-
ping record was smashed this week,
the mines here sending out 8,951 tons.
The largest previous shipment'
from here in a week was 7,814 ton*,
and so the present week beats that ree-
ord by 777 tons.
The shipments were made by tlnr
following mines: Le Roi, 4,331 tons';
Centre Star, 2,200; War Eagle, 696;
Le Roi No. 2, 2,750; Iran Mask, 55;
Rosslaud-Greut Western, 536; 1. X.
L., 23. It will be observed that the
Le Roi leads the procession as usual.
It is expected that the 10,000 mark
per week will be reached before long.
The additional tonnage would come
from the. Le'Roi shipping 6,000 tons
instead of 4,300. The purpose of the
installation of the new system at a cost
of nearly 8500,000 is to permit of tbe
shipment of 1,000 tons daily. This
increase alone wonld bring up tha
total, to over 10,000 tona. But the
Uossland-Great Western and the Le
Roi No. 2 are only shipping^onc third
and one half respectively of their ea-
timated capacity. This means an addition of another 1,500 tons. The War
Eagle, before the summer is over,
owing to the improved condition of
the ininc'uti depth, will again ship at
about its old rate, which will mean
another 750 tons at leaat, or double It*
present output. These additions
amount to 4,000 tons which will bring
the output of each week up to 12,000
tons, a total that can be confidently
expected before the end, of rile year.
Besides these mines there are several
others, notably the Kootenay, the last
of the Ii. A. C. properties to join the
shipping list, which may also be expected ut no remote date to materially
increase even this large output. Appended is the statement for the week
and year:

SOME     VIEWS     ON    THE     COAL
SUPPLY.
Outside of the tremendous controversy which is being waged in Manitoba over the railway policy of the
Roblin government, there is, perhaps,
no question engaging the attention
of the people of Canada to a greuter
extent thun the coul supply as it
affects British Columbiu and the application for a charter for the Crow's
Nest Southern railway. There is a
wide difference of opinion us to the
expediency of grunting tho churter,
and the arguments advanced pro and
con are of exceeding interest. The
New Westminster Columbian has a
lengthy article on the all-absorbing
topic. It says: "Tlie Crow's Nest
road was bonused out of regard more
for the wholesale trade of Toronto
and Montreal, than for the commercial interests of the west. The southern part of Britisli Columbia it was
evident must have ruilwuy communication, und if the American ambition
for lines projected across tlie border
were permitted, it was quite evident
that the result would be to give over
the country to foreigners, so far as its
trade was concerned. Therefore tlie
liberal government anil parliament
declared for the all-Canadiun route,
and refused sanction to the American projects. This was a patriotic
policy. It was not popular at the
time in the district Immediately affected, where the bulk of the capital and
the leaders of enterprise were Americans, and where the relatively few
Canadians hud their opinions moulded
by the influence of their immediate
surroundings. Though however they
joined in the short-lived chorus of
condemnation thut by interested parties was mude to uppeur as the voice
of the interior from end to end, in
brief course there came opportunity
to go on record in the only effect!ve
and heart-searching way���in the secrecy of the voting compartment. The
result was the endorsement of the governments' all-Canadian railway policy
by the return of the government candidate. Now the American railway
interests are making a more vigorous
onslaught. Concurrently with a deal
between Jim Hill and leading shareholders of the Globe, the chief government organ, that paper has commenced to champion the American cause
and with no evidence thut the influence at work is less sordid, the once
great champion of the people has several imitators of its aposlusy. We
have an example near home in the
Vancouver World now an out-und
outer in fuvor of chartering an American line to enable the American smelters by controlling the supply of coal
to make It impossible for tlie industry
to thrive on our side of tlie line. The
record of the new proprietors of tlie
coal fields shows that they would en-
Joy the exercise of the power they
have secured to squeezo Canadian enterprise to the utmost limit.''
Examining the patriotic side of the
fight which tlie C, P. H. is making
against tlie expoit of coal to the United States the Toronto World says: The
object for which the proposed lino Is
sought Is to afford facilities which
will enable Hritish Columbia to dispose of some of its Kin-plus coul to the
United Slates. It Ih not argued that
British Columbia has not a large surplus of coal nor is it argued thut It Is
bad policy in itself to sell coul to a
foreign country. It is Admitted that
the proposed railway will be the
meanB of creating a big sale of Canadian coul in the United Stutes. And
this is admittedly u desirable object
to attain. But it is claimed by the
transaction of this business the United Stales railways will offer such inducements In the way of cheap rates
or otherwise us will Influence Canadian mine-owneis to send their ore to
the United States instead of to Canadian smelters. If this argument means
anything it means that   the   new line
will give tlie whole province the benefit of reduced rates. It means that
the competition provided by the new
line will prove an effective regulator
of freight charges. Hut thero Is no
reison why Canada should lose any
business by reason of the cheaper
freights of   United   Htates   railways.
The way to prevent Canadian ores
leaving the country to bo refined In
foreign smelters is to impose export,
duties and other restrictions on them.
Ontario has it in its power to force
the smelting and refining of nickel to
be done in this country without interfering with the railway policy of
the country. It is surely possible for
us to sell our coal to the United States
without losing the industries which
naturally belong to us and for controlling which we have many expedients at our disposal. About the only
Canadian corporation or industry
that will bo prejudically affected by
the proposed railway is the Canadian
Pacific railway, but we do not see why
its welfare should be the special consideration of the people of Canada to
the exclusion of all other interests.
Commenting on tlie annual report
of the president of the Crow's Nest
Pass Coal company the Toronto Star
expresses itself as follows: President
Cox deals with the fears which have
been expressed in some quarters that
the establishment of railway connection between the Crow's Nest coal
fields and the Great Northern railway
system will deprive the Canadian mining and smelting industries of a supply of coal and coke and that the company may create a shortage of the
Canadian supply to benefit American
smeltiDg interests. He points out
thut from geological reports itappeais
that there are in the company's] property twenty billioD tons of coal���sufficient to admit of an output of ten
thousands tons per day for six thousand years. This unthinkable quantity of fuel is independent of course of
the immense coal areas in Alberta and
in other parts of British Columbia.
Moreover as a further reassurance the
company is prepared to enter into
time contracts with the smelters of
British Columbia to supply any quantities of coul oi coke that they may
require. The disposition of the company is to give every possibio assurance
to local industries that they shall not
be injured���in point of fact they must
be benefited���by the proposed enormous development with its lessened
cost of  production of coal   and  coke.
In a very lengthy editorial uritcle
in the Manitoba Free Press, published
under the caption "Developing British
Columbia" we find the following:
There is enormous mineral wealth in
all this section of the country and if
a market is found for it, and it can
only be found to any considerable extent in the United States at the present time, increased capital will be
supplied, more labor will be employed
and cities and towns will be built up
in the province. The public are told
by those who favor railway restriction aud railway monopoly that there
is not, enough coal being at present
mined and coked about Fernie to Bup-
ply the smelters in the Kootenay and
an attempt is made to cause an alarm
by representing that smelters have
been closed down for want of a supply
of coke from the Fernie district. If
in considering this question parliament was dealing with the next six
months only there might be some
force in the argument that no coal
should be expor'ed from this district,
but it will take some time to make
the railway connection to the south
and the consent of parliament to the
making of this connection is a preliminary step necessary to tlie contemplated enlargement of the capital invested in those mines, whose productive
capacity is only limited by the amount
of capital employed by transportation
facilities and by the securing of markets, If transportation facilities are
limited and valuable markets are shut
out and parliament decides that the
quantity of coal to bo taken out of the
Clow's Nost mines shall be restricted
to the limited quantity requited by
the Kootenay smelters, then the lookout for the development of valuable
portions of ('unudu's natural resources
will be pretty blue.
Very little surprise will be occasioned at the announcement thut Great
Britain views with suspicion Russia's
policy 111 China. The utter helplessness and Impotence, of the great yellow
giant renders him legitimate prey
for designing powers, and It would be
absurd to expect that Russia Ib not
going to get a good big slice when
pnrtitlonment, which cannot be delayed much longer, ("lies place. And
when that event does occur a mighty
conflict seems inevitable, All who
have the Interests of the Empire at
heart will fervently hope that Britain
may booh be freed from her South
African entanglements, so that she
may give adequate attention to her Interests In the Fur East.

NOT PUEHCASED   BY   MR.   HILL.
Robert .Jaffray   Says the Story Has no
Real Foundation.
It has been announced far and wide
from St. Paul that Jas. J. Hill, president ot the Great Northern railroad,
has purchased a controlling interest
in the great coal fields at Bast Kootenay, B.C., situated on the Crow's Nest
Pass line of 1he Canadian Pacific rail-
way.says tbe Seattle Post-Intelligencer
of Friday. Robert Jaffray, vice-president of the Crow's Nest Coal company, was quoted as authority for the
statement. Mr. Jaffray, with 0. G.
S. Lindsay, of Toronto, and George
Cowan, of Vancouver, counsel for the
coal company were at the Rainier-
Grand yesterday on their way to.Victoria, B. C. When shown the dispatch, Mr. Jaffray said:
"You may say on my authority that
the story is absolutely untrue. You
can deny it as strongly as you like.
I gave no interview to anyone while
in St. Paul, and there was no conference between ourselves, Mr. Hill and
Belfh A Ryan. I never said to anyone that the control of the coalfields
had been sold to Mr. Hill for {500,000
in stock on a guaranteed purchase of
the ouptut of the mines up to 6,000
tons per day, nor is such the case.
"The only possible basis for the rumor Ib tbat some time agj Mr. Hill
bought a portion of the stock.amounting to 30 per Cent, of the whole,-as a
private investment. Mr. Hill has a
high opinion of the value of the coal
fields, which he estimates at 820,000,-
000. There are not, and never have
been, any negotiations looking to the
sale of the control of the mines to Mr.
Hill, or anyone else. The control is
in Canadian hands and will remain
there.   It is not for sale."
Mr. Jaffray also said that the statement in the dispatch in question that
the Canadian Pacific railway haB
charged such exorbitant freight rates
tbat the ooal could not be mined and
distributed, is untrue. All the customers of the mines had been fully supplied, and the coal company had no
quarrel with tbe Canadian Pacific railway in the matter of freight rates.
These had been fixed by an agreement
when the coal company was originally organized.
Mr. Jaffray and party left yesterday
for Victoria.
COAL FIELD DEVELOPMENT.
The Annual   Meeting   of   the  Crow's
Nest Pass Company. '
The report of the annual meeting of
the Crow's  Nest  Pass  company published In Tbe Miner's advertising columns today, shows that the past year
has been,marked by  steady   progress
The feature of greatest  publio  inter
est is the address  of Senator Geo.   A.
Cox,   president   of   the   company, in
which he deala with  the immediate
prospects   of future development, and
with the proposed   railway   from   the
coal fields to the American   boundary
He declares tbat the company   has   in
its treasury 9830,000 to be' immediate
ly expended In enlarging   the scope of
its coal  and   ooke   producing  opera
tions. providing   the railway  charter
they are applying for is granted.   The
bulk  of   this expenditure will  be for
the construction   of   coke ovens,   but
there will be more  than a quarter  of
a million dollars  devoted to  develop
ment   work   aud   the erection of machinery,   dwellings  and   offices.   An
interesting and satisfactory feature is
the geological   estimate of 20,000,000,
00U tons in the coal area of the Crow's
Nest Pasa district, a stock of coal that
would furnish 10,000 tons every work
tug day for 6,666 years.

thing else for Indigestion or Biliousness. Doctors were scarce, and they
seldom heard of Appendicitis, Nervous

They used August Flower to clean out
the system and stop fermentation of
undigested food, regulate the action
of the system, and that is all they
took when feeling dull and bail with

Victoria, Maroh 'J.��� There is likely
to he considerable opposition to the
government measure regarding
schools, which comes up next week.
John Houston, who leaves tonight for
his home in Nelson, says he
regrets that he will not he Here to
cast his vote aga!n8t the measure.
He objects to hoth the increase in the
poll tox and to the extraordinary
powers conferred on the school hoard,
which he says is practica'.ly a dual
government for each city. It is expected that (larden and Tatlow will
also oppose the measure. The Victoria city council will also take action
against the measure.
Robert Jaffray who is here today,
says Elias Rogers has an option on an
iron property near Crow's Nest, and
that 'if examination warrants it a
smelter will he erecced.
The mining committee met this
morning and decided to urge the minister of mines to issue crown grants
for placei ground instead of leases,
as at present. A committee, consist'
ing of A. W. Smith, R. F. Green, P.
Ellison, Rogers and Statiles was appointed to '.ay the matter before the
minister of mines.
"A" company, R. C. R.. will be re
moved to Halifax about the first of
April. The officer in command has received no official intimation that they
will go on foreign service, as reported.
Mayor Lalonde of Rossland is here
asking tlie government not to confirm
the C. P. It. in the water records
granted them there. This would give
the C. P. R. a monopoly, and the city
thinks it may shut out competing
lines and industries.
The federated boards have decided
to continue the agitation to curtail
tha privileges of the medical profession, notwithstanding the compromise
offered by the doctors.
HE KEPT HIS LEU.
t Twelve years ago J. W. Sullivan, of
Hartford, Conn., scratched his leg
with a rusty wire. Inflammation and
blood poisoning set in. For two
years he suffered intensely. Then
the best doctors urged amputation,
"but, " he writes, "I used one bottle
of Electric Witters and ljg boxes of
Bucklen's Arnica Sulve and my leg
was sound and well as ever." For
Eruptions, Eczema, Tetter, Salt
Rheum, Sores and all blood disorders

PRESIDENT'S ADDRESS.
In congratulating you upon the
success of the last year's operations,
it may be worth while to refer to the
erroneous ideas that have gone abroad
with regard to the management and
control of the Crow's Nest Pass Coal
company. We are, in every respect, a
Canadian enterprise, with a large
majority of Canadian stockholders,
under Canadian control and management, and are giving employment to a
great force of labor on Canadian soil.
We are developing Canada's natural
resources in one of the most important economic minerals, and are building up an immense Canadian industry, which is bringing wealth to the
Dominion, and which, we feel assured, will constitute a most Important
factor In the Canadian Industrial development Of the future, unless our
operations are restricted by a limited
market and inadequate railway facilities.
It affords roe great pleasure to announce that we are prepared to proceed at once with construction and
development work involving an immediate expenditure of 8B3!i,000, und
we already bave this money in the
treasury of the company for this purpose. This large sum does not include tbe railway projeot, to which I
will refer later, but will be devoted
exclusively to development work, the
building of coke ovens, dwellings,
offices and other works in connection
with the coal and coke industry of the
company. We intend to build at
Fernie, Michel, and at another suitable point, 720 coke ovens, which will
Involve an expenditure of $540,000
under this head alone. We will then
have 1,032 ovens, which will increase
our capacity for coke production from
over 400 tons per day, as at present,
to more than 1,500 tons per day. Our
expenditure will also Include more
than a quarter of u million dollars on
mine improvements, offices und miners' dwellings. These expenditures
and the extensive mining and coke-
producing operations tbat are to follow will create and maintain two new
towns in the coal district as large as
Fernie which now owes its existence
to the works carried on by thU company.
There Ib a prospective demand, provided we obtain access to  the Amer
ican market, as I shall hereafter mention, for 4,500 tons of coal per day
within a year, and in three years we
expect to Increase our output to about
6,000 tons of coal per day, a large
portion of which will be converted
into coke In our ovens, and within
five yeai'B we expect to have a pay
roll of fully $10,000 per day, which
will be sufficient to maintain three
important industrial centres in the
coal district.
All business men will at once realize how important such a development
will be to the conntiy at large, as
mining camps are invariably extensive
consumers of supplies. Not only
will there be the direot employment
of several thousand Canadian working
men, but a new and most extensive
demand will be created for the pro
ducts of Canadian factories In the
east, and the food supplies from the
western farms and cattle ranches.
It is only fair to you, however, to
state that the present demand of British Columbia for coal and coke would
not justify any such expenditures
as we propose to make. This is self-
evident when I state tbat the present demand of British Columbia does
not exceed 1,000 tons of coal and coke
per day, and we cannot expect this
demand to Increase in the near future,
even under most favorable conditions,
so as to justify suah expenditures.
In order that we may proceed
with this development, it will be absolutely necessary to secure access to
the American markets by a route that
will put us in a position to successfully compete with the coal and coke
producers already in the field. If denied access to the American markets,
except by roundabout routes, If delayed in our operations by legislative
obstruction, if prevented in any way
from cutting down the cost of production to the narrowest possible margin, our success in the field will be
proportionately cramped, and it will
be quite Impossible to undertake the
development now proposed.
Recognizing, therefore, the necessity of obtaining direct access to the
adjacent markets of the United States,
an application has been made to Parliament by five of your directors for
a charter to build a railway from the
coal fields to the boundary, where It
is  intended to  connect   with   a spur
line    from   Jennings   on   the   Great
Northern railway.
This is simply an effort to secure
an entrance, by the best possible
route, to an almost unlimited market
for coal and coke, where we must
meet the keenest competition. And
without this market any large development of these British Columbia coal
fieldB will be practically impossible.
The fear has been expressed in some
quarters that the establishment of
railway connection between the
Crow's Nest coal fields and the Great
Northern railway system will deprive
the Canadian mining and smelting
industries of a supply of coal and
ooke, and that the company may create a shortage in the Canadian supply
to benefit American smelting interests. These fears are groundless.
From geological reports, it appears
that there are over 250,000 acres of
coal lands in the Crow's Nest country,
containing a supply of coal which is
conceded by all authorities to be practically exhaustless, it being estimated
that there are in this area 20,000,000,-
000 tons of coal. This would admit
an output of 10,000 tons per day, allowing 300 working days per year for
over 6,000 years. This is entirely
independent of the immense coal areas
in Alberta and in other parts of British Columbia.
We ore at present prepared to enter
into time contractB with the smelters
of British Columbia to' supply any
quantities of coal or coke they may
require, but so far as the local supply
is concerned, its safety can he best
assured by such development of the
Crow's Nest mines as will be made
possible by the building of thepropos.
ed line.
Successful operation of the mines on
a large scale would be impossible if
our market were limited to British
Columbia and it were subject to the
fluctuations we have experienced this
last year.
With an immense coal and coking
industry in operation, turning out
from six to ten thousand tons of coal
a day, the British Columbia smelters
now in operation could close down or
open up without notice, as often as
they might feel inclined, and the
change would not be felt. The smelters now in operation on tlie Canadian
side only require about 300 tons of
coke per day. If we are restricted as
to markets, there will be higher initial cost, risk of suspension through
accidents, difficulty in securing labor,
and in meeting any variation in the
demand,
Although there, is an immense area
of coal in the Crow's Nest country
that is of the best quality for coking,
we should not harbor the delusion
that this district has all the coking
coal on the continent. There will be
competition from the existing sources
of supply���from Cokedale, on Puget
Hound, Pennsylvania, West Virginia,
Utah and Colorado. There are also
immense coal deposits in Montana,
Washington, and other places, v> hlch
may prove, when tested, to be of go_.t
coking quality.
To enter and hold this market,
which means from 5,000 to 6,000 tons
of coal per day, the Crow's Nest Pass
Coal company mnst have the best
railway facilities available, and that
is why it is absolutely necessary to
build the proposed spur.
There is hardly any industry so universally beneficial to a country as
coal mining and coke making for export trade. Tbe coal and coke are
both brought to tbe last stage of perfection before being shipped out. All
labor is expended on them in the
country, and there is nothing further
to be done with them except to consume them. Not so with logs, not so
with lumber, not so with pulp, with
wheat, with wool, and with many
other products exported. Every dollar that comes into the country in return for ooal or coke exports makes
the country just that much richer.
The farmer, the rancher, the miller,
tbe merchant and tbe manufacturer
will all profit. There will also be an
enormous direct revenue to the Hritish Columbia government from the
royalty. That government is now deriving a revenue of about $100.00 a
day from our present operations.
In addition to the development of
the coal and coke industry the proposed railway will open up a prospect, and an assured prospect, of
smelting development, which will
prove, from a public standpoint,
of the very greatest importance. The success of the smelting industry depends upon tbe
ability to assemble the various
materials essential to profitable smelting at the lowest possible cost, and if
tbe proponed line of railway is built,
eonneotlng |the Crow's Nest fields
with the American railway systems,
the balance of advantage will be decidedly in favor of the Canadian side
as the place for establishing a large
and profitable smelting Industry.
The Canadian people have but to improve their opportunity, to Btand out
of the way and   let  the good   fortune
Id.
In order to Illustrate what I have
said, permit me to point out how
suitable a place Fernie or some point
adjacent thereto, would be for the
establishment of a smelting   industry.
There we have the coke, without
any charge for hauling,while to carry
it to any smelting point south of the
line would involve a hauling charge,
as well as an American duty of 60
cents per ton.
The limestone required is to be
found at Fernie, with no expense except the cost of quarrying.
The lead ores of Southern Britisli
Columbia are now seeking a market,
which is almost impossible for them
to find, and those adjacent to the coal
fields could, at a trifling cost for
transportation, be laid down at Fernie, or some other convenient point.
The dry ores necessary to make workable and profitable mixtures and
blends are not at present to be obtained in British Columbia, but are to
be found through the adjacent mining States along the lines and connections of the Great Northern and
Northern Pacific railways; and the
ore ears taking the coal and coke
from the mines at Fernie to supply
the railways and established industries in these States, instead of coming back empty, would, at a low cost
for transportation, bring back these
dry ores to 6uch a smelter. There is
no point south of the boundary line
where a smelting industry could so
easily or so profitably  be established.
If a smelting industry were established south of the line there would
be, as above mentioued, the cost of
transportation of the coke to the site
of the smelting industry; the duty on
this coke entering the United States;
the cost of transporting the lead ores
from Britiuh Columbia to the site of
the proposed smelter, and the American duty on the lead ores entering the
United States, which, upon the quality of ore found in some of the best
mines in British Columbia would probably be about $9.00 per ton.
Simply on the item of transportation, there would be the serious handicap of the ore cars bringing down
the coke and ore from British Columbia to a smelter on the American side
being compelled to return empty, and
this would necessarily entai la proportionately higher freight rate.
Not the least important factor in the
situation is the fear in the minds of
American capitalists interested in the
mining industry of the weBt that an
export duty may be put upon ores by
the Canadian Government, and this
would cripple any smelting industry
established on the American side dependent upon Canadian ores as its
source of supply.
That this is not simply theory, but
the mature judgment of practical
smelting men, is evidenced by the
fact that we have the most positive
assurances from a smelting man of
large capital and experience that if we
would obtain the proposed railway
connection he will at once commence
the erection of a large smelting plant
in Britisli Columbia adjacent to the
coal fields; and we have assurances
scarcely less definite from others of
the establishment of three or four
more smelting industries at other suitable points in Southern British Columbia, provided the propoBed road
iB built.
The prospect, therefore, for Southern British Columbia would appear
to be exceedingly bright. Once the
charter for the railway is asBurcd, the
construction of the coke ovens, the
building of the homes for the miners,
and the virtual establishment of two
new towns in Southern BritiBh Colum
bia, will await only the opening of
the season. Scarce more time will
elapse, from the assurances wc now
have, before more than one large
smelting industry will be put under
way, and hundreds of thousands of
dollars will be invested in developing
this important industry in that coun
try.
With Improved transportation facil
itieB.aB well as the improved smelting
facilities, whicli would be secured,
a smelter could seoure freight chargos
and give rates for treatment that are
now impossible.
It Is hardly necessary to dwell at
length on the resultant benefits to
mining and other enterprises in British Columbia. These benefits arc self-
evident.
In every lead mine there, are masses
of ore that will not pay at the present
rate for treatment; In every camp
there are propositions and mines just
too lean to tempt operators or Investors. Every dollar taken off the
charge for treatment means thousands
of tons more of ore available, and
proportionately Bwells the pay rolls of
every camp. Every dollar of reduction in smelter charges widens the
pay streak of every mine, and brings
new mines within   the   paying  class.
It would' be a great misfortune to
British Columbia and to the Dominion at large if this opportunity Bhould
be loBt, through the failure to secure
adequate means of transportation.
There arc rival projects south of the
boundary. Immense coal areas in tlie
States of Washington and Montana.
are in process of development, and If
the parties interested in these properties once seoure possession and control of the market in these States for
coal'uiitl coke I feir the coul and coke
of British Columbia will stand a very
poor chance of ever taking it from
them.
The promoters of this   railway   ask
no cash   bonus   or land   grant of uny !
kind; they   simply   desire   the oppor- j
tunity of expending   their own money
to construct   a railway which   will be]
of great public benefit.
We now have a prospect of building
up a city as large as Butte in the
Crow's Nest coal district; and lean-
not think it possible that either the
parliament of Canada or the legislature of Britisli Columbia will place
any barrier in the way ot the industrial development of our eountry. OI
will adopt a course which may delay
that development half a century. I,
therefore, look forward witli confidence to a charter being granted ; and,
this being done, tlie development
which I have outlined will be at once
proceeded with; but unless the charter is granted the development outlined cannot be undeitaken.
The president moved the adoption of
the report, which was seconded by
Mr. Jaffray, the first vice-president of
the company.
-. Mr. Elias Rogers, managing direc
tor, gave an interesting address, detailing the past year's operations of
the company. The usual formal resolutions were adopted and all the members of the board were re-elected for
the ensuing year.
