Sentiment Turning in Favor
of Preference to Colonies.
Montreal, March 10.��� Tho Star's
London correspondent cables: The
complaint of R. Bo/den, leader of the
opposition in the Cimndian parliament, that Sir Wilrfid Laurier haB
seemingly excluded defence 'Uscus-
sions from the programme of the
ooronation conterenco. finds many
sympathizers, especially among ministerialists, who had hoped that the
colonies themselves would propose
some closer form of inter-imperial
defence co-operation.
Of the budget statement of lion. Mr.
Fielding, the Pall Mall Gazette,
ministerialist, says that Our Lady of
Snows so shaboily misnamed, had
better be rechistened Onr Lady of
Success. It hopes that if arguments
are equal, tne Chancellor of the
Exchequer will give Canada's view of
preferODtiul tariff the benefit of the
doubt. It adds that to give the
youngster a "leg up" is always good
advice, for colonies as well as for
The St. James Gazette, also ministerialist, aBks: Shall v;e abandon free

the essential principles, which according to the reiterated statement of
France and Russia, constituted and
still constitute the foundation uf their

the support of these principles is also
a guarantee of their interests in tbe

repetition of disorders in China, pus-
Bibly impairing China's integiity and

Of all the screaming farces that have
been perpetuated in the coal and coke
controveisy that has been in progress
since the commencement of the year
the resolution passeu by the council ol
the municipality ot Phoenix is the
funniest. This is so because it iB
visionary, illogical and uot practical.
The resolution in full is as follows:
Whereas, the mining and smelting
of metalliferous ores constitute the
primary industry of .Southern British
Columbia, and
Whereas, a plentiful and cheap
supply of coke is indispensable to that
industry; and
Whereas, many low grade properties
now lying idle could be profitably
operated if cheaper fuel for smelting
were available; and
Whereas, the Crow's Nest Coal com
pany is charging an   exorbitant   price
for its coke; and
Whereas, there is great danger that,
if the Dominion government were to
sell, lease, or otherwise dispose of
the coal lands still held by the crown
in the Crow's Nest Pass, they would
be absorbed immediately or ultitnat
ely by the Crow 's Nest Coal company
which would eliminate competition
aud all chancex>f cheap coke;
Therefore,   be   it   resolved, that the
Dominion government be   respectfully
requested   neither  to   sell,   lease,   or
otheiwise   dispose   of   the   coal   land
still held by   the Crown in the Crow's
Nest Pass, but to hold them in perpetuity   for   tho   benefit   of   the   whole
people of Canada,   and to develop said
coal   lards   and   operate   coke  ovens
under government   management,   thus
furnishing   the   smeltir,g industry   of
Rritish   Columbia with   coke   at   the
lowest   possible   price,    and   creating
a great increase of commeicial   activity   throughout   tbe   province   by the
opening   of   low   grade   bodies of ore
which cannot now be worked.
There are misstatements in (he above
resolution.    For instance, thc price of
coke is not   exorbitant as   stated    as
it barely covers the cost of production.
The reduction of 'he price of coke was
made to tiae the mine   owners over   a
dull period when the prices   of metals
were low.      It   must   be   remembered
that the cost of powder and other sup
plies in East Kootonay is greater tnan
anywhere   else   in Canada where coa
mining is carried on.    Labor is higher
there than it is at the coast or in east
cm Canada.      Four dollars per ton for
coke,   therefore, about represents   the
cost of production.    If the market was
a large one and vn.-t   quantities   were
being   turned   cit coke might be produced for a litis less than the   present
cost, but the market is not an extensive
one.      We do not believe that there is
the   slightest   danger   that   the   coal
lands   held   In reserve by   the Federal
government   will   ever   pat's   into the
hands   of   the Crow's \est   Coal   Co
That corporation has 200,000   acres   of
coal lands,    whieh le all that it   neens
for many years to come.      The   Canadian Pacific railway   is bending every
eneigy to cause the ooala lands to pass
ioto the possession of its   friends   and
allies so that it raav   have   control   of
them.    Then, if it has power to create
conditions   favorable   to   the scheme,
there would be danger of a monopoly.
The Crow's Nest Ccal Co. is not, bow-
ever, the only concern engaged   iu exploiting   tbe   coal   measures   of    the
Crow's Nest Pass   basin.      Thero   are
some   half a dozen companies,   syndicates and firms, which are engaged in
developing   properties there and some
have    been     selling      coal     to    the
C. P.U.   and   others.      One   or two   of
these companies intend   to put in coke
ovens, and to raako coke.    Besides the
coke made in   the   Crow's   Nest   Pass
there     is     a     large   tonnage     made
from the ovens   at the   coast;   in   the
year 1000 the coast  ovens   turned   out
19,23i tons of coke.    Coke can be pur
chased at the coast, but it costs fa per
ton there at the ovens.
The mo6t fareial part of the resolution is where tho Phoenix aldertnm
request tho government to operate the
reieives for the benefit of the mines in
their town and vicinity. Ther,- is no
danger whatever that the Federal
authorities will ever uudertake so
foolish a move^ Thc mining of cobI
and the making of eoke are industries
of no small magnitude in the Dominion of Canada. There aro many millions oi dollars invested ia them by
citizens. If the governmont embattled
iu the business it would spell rum to
all engaged in tllis line of industry
because if the government wont into
such an enterprise in East Koote
nay it could do likewise at the coast
and in Eastern Canada, No corporation, no ninttur how great its resources, could hope to compete with
the government. It would amount to
a monstrous pieco of Injustice for the
government to adupt such au unfair
What would tho people of Phoenix
say if the people cf other communities
would declare that the price of gold
and copper, which are the only products of Phoenix are too exorbitant
and would petition the Federal government to embark in the business of
mining fur these mir.eials on tne
vacant grovernmont mineral areas so
as to bring down prices. There is no
possibility of this being done just as
there is not the remotest chance of the
Federal government embarking io the
business of mining for coal and making of coke. It shows to what foly
public bodies,and even those reputed
to be sane,sometimes go when blinded
by self interest.
Tho Federal government has announced that there will be no ohange
in the tariff at the present session of
parliament. There should bo a depart
ure from this determination so far as
tbe tariff on lead is concerned and it
should be raised,, sufficiently to keep
out the foreign product. The import
duty levied on lead is only 15 per
cent ad valorem and on some of the
products of lead, and notably white
lead, it is even smaller. At least
two lead refineries are to be constructed io the Kootenays and before they
embark iu the business should be protected by an increase in the duty to a
large enough figure to ensure them a
monopoly of the home market, wbul
is a growing one and which already consumes between 12,000 and
13,000 tons of lead and its products
per annum. Those behind the lead
refineries do not feel much like going
ahead with them until they aie
assured that they will be protected
from foreign competition. This protection should be accorded them by
the Federal government and at once.
It has been stated that the government
did not care to raise the tariff on lead
until some pig lead had been turned
out in Canada. The government virtually says that it would not be equitable to place an additional burden on
the lead users of Canada until the refiners of lead are in a position to supply the home market. If the government does not desire to immediately
impose toe increased duty, a measure
could be adopted providing that at
any time by an order-in-aouncil the
duty can be raised to a figure fixed by
parliament, but sufficiently high to
keep out the foreign product. Tbis

purpose embarking in the lead refining business. Messrs. Aldridge,
Buohanan, and Cronin, who represent
tho Associated Boards of Trade, left
several days since for the seat ol gov

able to convince the government to
alter its determination to make no
change in the tariff at this cession of

Ahat thc lead interests are asking for
aud the granting of it is simply what
they nre in justice and equity entitled
to. To assume any other position

of the prominent interests of the
country. This being the case the committee from the Associated boards

Asthmalene Brings Instant Relief and Permanent Cure in all Cases.
- There is uoth ing like Asthmalene, It
brings instant relief, even in t e worst
cases.    It cures when alt else falls.
The Rev. 0. P. WELLS, o Villa Ridge,
111., says: "Your trial bottle of Asthmalene received iu good condition, I cannot
tell you how thaukful I feel for the good
derived from it. I wns a slave, chained
with putt-id 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 overspok'en
yourselves, but resolved to give it a trial.
To my ustouishment the trial acted like a
charm.    Send me a full size bottle,

Dr. Taft Bros. Medicine Co.,
Gentlemen: Your Asthmalene is an
excellent remedy for ABthma and Hoy
Fever, and its composition alleviates all
troulles which combine with Asthma.
Its success is astonishing and wonderful.
After having it carefully analyzed, we oan state that Asthmalene contains
no opium, morphine, chloroform or ether.    Very truly yours,

Drs. Taft Bros. Medicine Co.
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 affleted with spasmodic asthma for th�� past 12 years. Having exhausted
my own skill as well as many others, 1 chanced to see your Bign upon your
windows on 130 th street, New York, I at onae obtained a bottle of Asthmaleno.
My wife oommenced taking it about the first of November. I very soon noticed
a radical improvement. After using one bottle her Asthma has disappeared
and she is entirely free from all symptoms. I feel that I ean consistently recommend the medicine to all who are afflioted with this distressing disease.
Yours respectfully,  ______   O. D. PHELPIS, M. D.
Db. Taft Bros, Medicine Co, Feb. 5,1901,
Gentlemen : I was troubled with Asthma for 22 years. 1 have tried numerous remedies, bnt they have all failed. I ran across your advertisement and
started with a trial bottle. I found relief at ouee. I have since purchased your
full sized bottle, and I am ever grateful, 1 have a family of four children, and
for six years was unable to work. I am now in the best of health and am doing
business every day. This testimony you can make such use of as you see fit.

sections where the winters are said to
be even more severe than In the vicinity of Nelson. Should a few dozen be
secured and put out near tbis oity
they should during the first winter or
two be looked after so that in the
periods in which they are being
acclimated tbey can be fed during the
severer snow storms. This may not be
necessary.but would simply be a safeguard. It is contended that tlie birds
hatched here will be able to accommodate themselves to their environment
and that tbey will be able to live
through tho hardest winters without
being cared fur. A law should be
passed protecting the birds and prohibiting the shootiDg trapping or
killing of them in any manner for a
period of the last three years. J. F.
McNaught, who is well acqua;nted
with the peculiaiities of Mongolian pheasants, says he is satisfied
that they will thrive along the arm of
Kootenay lake and the main lake, and
declares tbat once they arc established
they will remain. It will be necessary, of course, when the inhibition
is finally taken off as to killing them
to have a close season in order to give
them the chances which are usually
given to other game birds.
They afford splendid sport fur the
hunter and would lorm a great attraction for visitors who Hke to shoot as
well as fur the local sportsmen.   Tbis
proposod move of the Tourist   association is a most commendable   one   and
there should be no delay   in   carrying
it out.     The   birds are easily obtain
able   and   should   be   secured inline

I     MINING NEWS.     |
There Is a prospect of the Humming
Bird resuming work and sending out
more ore thiB spring. The mine has
sent a larger quantity of oro to the
smelter than the aggregate ol all tho
rest of the Noith Fork claims. The ore
carries good values ill gold and silver,
bnt tbe cost of hauling rudjces its
W. G. Robb, of Whitewater, was in
yesterday attending to business in
connection with a recent shipment of
ore from tho Wellington mine in
Sioean to the Hall Mines smelter. Tho
Wellington was one ol thc early shippers from the Slocan but not much
has been sent out since l.n. A little
less tban a year ago work was relumed but chielly in tho way uf development, and it was in the oourse of this
that the oro shipped was taken out.
Work will bo continuud on the mine.
The Rambler, near Eholt, recently
shipped a car of ore from u very
promising surface showing to the
Grand Forks smelter. A sack of ore
from this outcrop returned fair values
in gold, bo it was decided to try how
a carload would run. The Bmelter
returns have not yet been received. A
breakage ot one of tho patts of the
diamond drill that for several weeks
had bee.i putting in drill holes to
prospect the Rambler, has necessitated
a temporary stoppage of this work
until repairs can be made.
Mautii'o Gintzburger, of the Monitor mine passed through Nolson yesterday on his way to Trail. He states
that the Monitor is doing well and it
is the intention of the company to
keep shipments up to an average of
100 tons a month for the year. Mr.
Giiitvbmgor statos that there ls a
propositon afcot to erect a lead smelter at Sandon and that parties from
the Unitod States are now negotiating
wilh the city of Sandon for certain
rights. The proposed capacity of the
smelter would be U) tons a day and
there would be no difficulty in getting
that quantity.
At a special meeting of the shareholders in the Royal Victoria Gold
Mining company, limited, owning the
Golden Eagle, near the Volcanic, on
the north fork of Kettle river, held at
Greenwood recently to consider the
advisability of disposing of the company's property with ample capital to
work the mine, should oppoitunity
occur, the necessary authority was
given to tbe management to tnke such
action. Nine-tenths of the shares
wore represented at the meeting,
either in person or by proxy. The
Golden Eaglo sometime ago shipped to
the Granby smelter about 15 tons of
high grade ore, values of wbich were
chiefly in gold and silver. The cost of
hauling though, is heavy under existing conditions.
L. R. Lindsay, of Kaslo, was iu
NelBon yesterday on his way to Spokane on business, connected with tho
Silver Crown Mining company. This
company owns the Alice and Zuni
mineral claims in Spring creek basin
about two miles from Cody. Recently
not much has been heard from Spring
creek basin but the piospects are good
for considerably more work being
done there during the coming summer
than in tbe past. The Silver Crcwn
company has in all done 1,300 feet of
work, chiefly in two tunnels. The
first was run following a group of
small leads and then a lower crosscut
was commenced and has been driven
for 430 feet. This haB rot yet reaohed
the main lead of the property but cannot ye far from it, and if tho dip of
tbe ledge has changed from what it
waB near the surface the tunnel should
be almost at it now. The good results
following exploration at depth in the
Slocan has been a source of encouragement to others to continue their
In the same basin the Carbonate No.
2 owned by Mr. Donaldson,of Sandon,
is being worked under tribute by
Pfeifer and Foundrey, who have been
doing well. A carload was shipped
about two weeks ago and another is
expected to come out soon.

A Branch of the Tourist Assoociatton
Formed There.
The officers of the Tourist Association are in receipt of a letter from W.
D. Mitchell, of New Denver, in which
bo states that a branch of the TouriBt
association was formed in New Denver
on Saturday evening. Mr. Mitchell
famishes the following particulars of
the meeting.
In response to your invitation to
join with you ln organizing an association for the objects rbercin set
forth the townspeople of Now Denver
inrt in public assembly in Clever's
nail of the evening of Saturday, February i5th. A full representation attended. Henry Stega was called to the
chair and W. D, Mitchell appointed
secretary. Your communication was
read and thc merits of the proposition
discussed, amplified and approved of.
The chairman called attention to
the fact that the boauties.tho intrinsic
and latent merits of New Denver and
its possibilities as a field of pleasure
and profit were not surpassed in
foreign or domestic travel, as evidenced by tho general trend of public
upinion and the testimony and tribute, not of tourists alone, but of mining men, moneyed aien, commercial
men, artists, writers and others.
John Williams made a lew remarks,
stating that tho advantages and results likely t:> accrue from the promotion of the objects of the association
wore worthy of the earnest and beatty
suppoit of the people of New Denver.
These remarks were supported by
Amos Thompson and sove'al others
who made short speeches.
Resolutions were posscd directing
that an association bu organized in
connection with the movement in
Nelson; that the membership fee be
$i; that a coinmittoe bo appointed to
solicit funds; that each member
present constitute himself a committee
of one to increase the membership;
tho secretary was instructed to make
n reply to the invitation and report
progress, and to request the head
olllee in Nelson to furnish and forward for guidance aoy information
convenient, of tne plans, schemes and
objects of the association.

At the opera house last evening a
crowded house witnessed the presentation of the musical comedy The Queen
of Hayti. The company is a good one
and the specialties thioughout were
granted with plenty of applause. Tbea
Casic, as Henrieta, Queen of Hayti,
was very good. Of the specialties,
Hany L. Gillam, as the acrobatic
Hebrew received an ovation of applause each time he appeared on the
stage, and Frank Erk as Happy

The Color Sought in Coffee.
When a person has heen shown
tbat a change in food or drink can
make and keep ono well it is a thing
not likely to be forgotten.
Coffee is a "killer" fur many
people, and, of course, when loft off,
the user will probably regain a degree
of health without any outside help,
hut when Postum Food Cotfee is used
the return to health is muoh more
rapid, for I'ostum is a distinot, and
well defined health builder with a
delicious coffee flavor and a beautiful
deep hrown color that changes to
golden brown when cream is added.
A Chicago mnn, Peter 0. Hoist, al
315 Knglewood Ave. writes, "Reading
in the paper the other day something
about I'ostum Cercnl, lt awoke in
mo a reminiscent vein.
About five years ago, when I was a
miserable dyspeptic, I first heard of
I'ostum Cereal Colfee and put it to a
careful test.
1 had been afflicted, for years, with
chronic dyspepsia and all the medicines 1 had tried were in vain. One
hy ono I had to leave them off and
was in despair as to what I should do
for relief.
:.".y first taste of I'ostum was about
ten o'clock one morning. I did not
riaro to take cream with it for I knew
what the result, would ho with my
stomaoh. That is. 1 thought I did. I
have sinct learned that cream can be
taken iu Postum even by had dyspeptics,but I had my llrst, taste with only
hot water in it and a little sugar.
The second cup followed the first and
a third followed lhe second. I took
my departure munching some of the
dry grains of Postum os I was determined to Investigate its effects
That day I had no dinner and experienced no distressing sensations, on
the contrary felt as though my appetite had heen appeased.
The next day I began to use Postum
regularly and before the first package
had been entirely used I discovered the
most encouraging symptoms. The
dyspepsia and headaches which I had
been subject to daily, entirely disappeared, also tlio distressing vomiting peels. The bowels improved
steadily and regularly.
1 ate cautiously but was sustained
by the Postum Ooffee, After the
lirst package I lied it with milk,
then with cream,without experiencing
the least ineonvemeno. Of course I
was delighted and the future looked
bright. From the first experience up
to date my health bas been splendid.
I have increased in weight from lllli to
IS" pounds, and can digest anything
I   desiro.     1   can   say   honestly   and
cheerfully   that   I would   recommend I the territories   through agentB.

A big attraction has been arranged
for the afternoon of Master Monday,
Mareb 30, in the shape of a Rugby
football match between the East
Kootenay and Nelson teams. Tlie
game played there last spring between
these two teams will be remembeied
as an exciting match and the East
Kootenay players are coming down
bent en giving the Nelson team
defeat, and unless the Nelson team be
the strongest that can be got together,
it is quite likely that tbey will be
successful. Any Rugby players who
may have come to town recently
might send thir names to F. A. Macrae, at the Hank of Montreal) as soon
as possible, as a probable teum has to
be picked at once. A ball will be at
the grounds every afternoon and all
who are willing to help out tlio game
hy making up praetioes will oblige by
sending in their names or turning out
themselves. At least one full practice
will be necessary, and more il they
can be arranged. The East Kootonay
players show themselves good sports
to send a team such a distance and it
is hoped that a good crowd will turn
out to witness the match.

to transfer the Panama canal property
to the United Stales for 110,000,000,
The objections of the majority to tbe

relation of the shareholders who
subscribed 8260,000,000 to the j]d
lauama company whoso interests the
reports holds cannot be lightly regarded.
The minority report which was pro-
pared by Senator Kittredge, completely upholds the title of the new Panama Canal cempany. Tho report reviews the entire origin and history
of the Panama Canal company and
linds that thc affairs of the old oompany were disx>osed of by a French
court in a straightforward way when
that oompany became insolvent and
thnt the court had a perfeot right,
not only to appoint a liquidator or
receiver, but to confer upon him as
was done, power "to grant or contribute to any new company all or
part of the corporate assets,"
The various objections to the new
company's title were then considered
and replied to.
