SECURITY
COMES FIRST
Lord Salisbury   Points Out
Weakness of Dutch
Note.
Ireland   Armed   a   Greater
Menace   Than   the
Boers.
London, FeD 5.���Lord Salisbury
unveiled a life-sized marble statue of
the late Queen Victoria at the Junior
Continental clnb tonight. At a dinner
after the unveiling, the premie
referred to the recent Dutch note in a
tone, for him of unusual flippancy.
Lord Salisbury said that doubtless
some ot his auditors thought it a bit
of luck to cateh a cabinet minister
anil extract from him some information concerning that abortive crisis
which had lately filled columns in
the newspapers. Tbe speaker said he
doubted, however, if they would extract much from himself. He was
unable to imagine the objection of the
Dutch government, fur whose friendly
feelings he had the greatest admiration, bat he oould not see the precise
object they hoped to gain by this curious step. It was clear that the Dutch,
continued Lord Salisbury, had no
authorization from our enemies ou
the continent, sineo from the moment
this action on the part of the Nether-
land's government was announced
these enemies vied with eaoh other in
declaring the Dutch action to ba
undesiretl. The premier explained
that his only reason for alluding to
such tilings was that a time was coming when the people must think more
of tbo suggestions of their intelligence and less 01 tho suggestions of
their emotions.
There is no longer any question of
sentiment, continued Lord Salisbury,
we have entered upon a matter of
business which we must push through,
what ��e aie now seeking is security.
Any peace which recognizes fully the
rights of the sovereign and gives us
security for the empire, we should
accept not only with willingness, but
with delight. It is useless to tell us
to behave so as to leave a pleasant
reuollection in the minds of those
with whom we are fighting. The only
reason that can compensate for the
sacrifice of blood and treasure is that
for the future there shall be security
n that part of the empire upon which
the ambition of Mr. Kruger has procured tbis abundance of sorrow and
desolation.
Lord Salisbury said he had no misgivings for the future and that he believed the war had made the country
more confident in its external polioy,
more convinced that its opinions
would receive due consideration from
the committee of nations. But when
the present strain had passed nway,
continued the speaker, there would
still remain duties which oould not be
shirked. The existence of hostile
fueling in Ireland was a signal that
the efforts, upon which depended, in
no slight degree, the glory and continuance of the empire, must not be
relaxed. The , maintenance of our
position in Ireland is the most vital
object the empire has and it can only
le attained by strenuous exertions,
said the premier. The premier asked
11 the Irish people love the government better than they did formerly
and replied himself that they did not.
He said the feelings of hostility
which had been expressed were more
uncompromising than any expressions
which had ever issued from the lips
of 1'arnell or O'Connell. An Irish
government with power to accumulate
arms and ammunition would constitute a more serious threat than had
the Boers,
James Mackay, the British commissioners and those of other Countries
in conjunction with local merchants
of the countries interested. lie considered the negotiation of the cominei-
cial treaty a matter of far greater
moment and difficulty in whieh many
conflicting interests would be involved, rendering a unanimous agreement hard to be arrived at. He also
expressed doubtB as to Chinese official
willingness or ability to apply the
drastic measures which might become
necessary. The fundamental features
of the new treaty would, he said, be
to open a fresh treaty ports, secure to
foreigners the right to ouild and own
property, to work mines, construct
lailways in the intcrior,and generally
to seoure better trading facilities.
CHINESE TRADE.

Satistactory Settlement.
Victoria, Feb.5.���General Sharretts,
United States trade commissioner to
China, interviewed by North China
Bally News, Hong Kong, said regarding tariff questions and the new commercial treaty: It seems pretty well
settled that there will be no obstacle
in the way of a speedy settlement of

FATAL GAS EXPLOSION.
Eleven   Persons   Killed   and   Several
Buildings Shattered.
a
Chicago,    Feb. 5.���By an   explosion
of illuminating gas in the basement
of a two story frame building at 30
Twenty Second street this evening, a
number of people, the total said to
be 11, lost their lives and the building was blown into kindling wood.
By 8.4!> p. m. five bodies had been recovered from the ruins. They were all
of one family, not a member of the
family escaped. Two other explosions
of gas followed t; quickly that it was
hard to distinguish them. The first
to explode was a main at 22nd street
and Archer avenue. Then the manhole half a block south of Archer
avenue was thrown into the air by a
loud explosion.
Flames leaped and roared from the
hole. The fire spread below the street
and smaller manholes blown in the
air. The fiamea from the first gas
main reached the Tbustle butcher
shop. The building was a threo story
frame structure and it had beeu weak-
ed and nearly wrecked by the shock.
It is supposed that the occupants of
the building were knocked unconscious or were too panic stricken to
rush from the plaoe.
The dry and ratting wood was food
for the fire and in an instant the
flames had enveloped the structure.
With a roar the building collapsed
and tho occupants, with one exception, were carried with it to the basement. The adjoining building also
soon caught fire. It seemed that the
whole block would be wiped out
before the firemen could get the blaze
under control. A fire wall of a brick
building on one of the burning structure held the fire in that direction.
On tha others were two oue-story
eottagas separated by a few feet from
tbe burning buildings and that gave
the firemen an opportunity of beading
off the fire. On several street cais
near the place the windows were
smashed and the passengers severely
shaken up. When people in the cars
saw the flames gush from thi ground
they rushed for the doors.

A TRAIN WRECKED.
Several Cars Derailed By Broken Rail
on the Crow's Nest.
The wreck of a passenger train ocs
ourred on the Crow's Nest Pass railway on Monday morning at 5.50 at a
point two miles west of Seven Persons
station. The accident was caused by
a broken rail. Dominion Express
Messenger J. II. Spooner, was at his
post of duty, and as the trucks of his
car lett tho track he was the first to
give signals aud to bring tbe train to
a stop by putting on tbe emergency
brakes. The engineer immediately
did likewise. On investigation it
was found that the tourist, Pullman
and the dining cars had been derailed
and left 200 yards in the rear, where
tbey had been thrown on their sides.
Fortunately no one was seriously injured, though all were badly shaken
up and a few receive bruises and cons
tusions. The passengers and crew
were carried on to Medicine Hat by
the express car. It took nine hours to
clear tho tracks of the wreck so that
the west bound passenger train No. 4
eouid pass. It is thought that the
froBt broke the rail wbicn caused the
derailment of the train.

FACTS AND FIGURES.
The simulated fear that is expressed
by sjmo journals, which are pleading
the cauBe of the Canadian Pacific railway company that tnere will be a coal
famine is as ridioulous as it is foolish. A glance at the existing situation will show how utterly groundless
is the apprehenion. The output oi
the 630 ovens of the Crow's Nest Pats
Ooal company is 1,000 tons of coke
per day, and the number of these
ovona is being increased from time
to time. The cntiie Canadian demand
tor this coke is less than 2110 tons per
day. What would become oi the surplus ol 800 tons a day which is marketed iu the States if the Canadian Pa
ciflc railway weie to have its own
sweet way?
The mines of the Crow's Nest. Pass
Coal company are at present turning
out 2,000 tons of coal a day and have
a capacitty of 3,0o0 tons a day. The
rtpntire demand fur this coal in Canada
only equals about 500 tons a day. The
remainder is maiketed in the United
States. If the market for the pioduct
of these mines in tho United States
were 6'.iut off at least three-quarters
of thc force employed would have to
be deprived of emplcymont; in other
words, placing the force at 1,000 men
T50 would have to bo discharged,
leaving 250 men to supply the home
demand. This would be for what
purpose? Simply to serve the selfish
ends of the Canadian Pacific railway
in its anxiety to hurt the business of
a rival railway line.
That the Crow's Nest Pass Coal
company has honestly and energetically pushed its business in the past is
evidenced from tho way tlie uutput^oi
its mines has increased steadily from
the time the company maue its first
shipment of coal. The output for
181)8 was 8,yOO tons, for 1809 110,200
tons; for 1900 232,345 tons, for 1901
425,350 tons.
R. G. Tat ow, M. P., despite these
conditions, advances tho following
absurd proposition: Thnt the tux on
coal should bo increased so that the
Montana smelters, which, he says
must havo Crow's Nebt Pass coal, be
compelled to contribute more revenue
to British Columbia or move to
this side of thu lino. This tax could
be icbated should the coal be coked
or used for manufacturing purposes on
tbis side uf the line.
Tbe increase in tho tax would only
bave one effect which would be to increase the hardships of the coul companies, cut down their production ami
would not have the desired offect of
causing iho smelters of Montana to
remove to this bide of tlie lino.
All the gold copper ores ot British
I'uliiiiiiii'i are reduced at homo. The
production of silvor-lead ures in British Columbia last year was ubout
50,000 tons and a largo proportion of
it waa smeltud at the Hall Mines
smelter lu Nelson aud the smelter
controlled by the Canadian Puciflie
railway at Trail. Another sliver-lead
smelter Is being built in East Kooto
nay and this will iitill further cut
down the amount of B. C. silver-lead
ores reduced uliroad. Lead refineries
are to be erected ut Tiail and in East
Knotunay. When these refineries are
in operation it is doubtful if any
silver-lead ores will be sent across the
line for treatment. lhe smelter
capacity ul the silver-lead smelters uf
li, C. is already more than sufficient
to reduce u'l of tlio silvor-lead ores
produued in the province. It is true
that sumo of the silver lead ore is
still shipped abroad and where this is
done it must bo that the mine owners
think thut it, is tu their advantage to
sono it thither. Oondition nre huw-
over. shaping themselves so that nu
silver-lead ore will be sent out ot the
country fur treatment, and within a
few months lho bullion will also be
treated at home, instead of sending it
to thu rs'flnories in the Eastern State!
to have thu metals seperated. The
qnantitv of oro which tho American
smelters now receive from British
Columbia  is   merely   an   incident U
There is another side to this picture
whicb Mr. Tatlow has not taken into
consideration and which may cut
quite a figure in the matter under
consideration. Within a very few
weeks Grand Foiks and Republic
will be connected by rail. Republic
is by far tbe largest mining camp in
the state of Washington. It bas ��
number of mines which have reached
the productive stage, but is unprovided with proper reduction facilities.
Republic ore^must be smelted instead
of being reduced in quarUjuills and
oyanlding plants. The ore will all,
therefore, be sent to the smelters at
Nelson, Grand Forks, Trail and
Greenwood for treatment. It is more
than probably that the quantity of
ure received from Republic and the
camps close to it will be muchjlarger
than the amount of 6ilver-lead ore
that is being at present sent to the
American smelters. In this'^way the
coke matter would adjust itself so as
to produce an equitable balance between the two countries and is a good
reason why Mr. Tatlow's plan should
not be put into effect.
There is but little danger of the
tax being increased on coal us proposed by Mr. Tatlow. The Crow's
Nest company is paying ten cents per
ton on the coal which it extracts.
The coal at the coast escapes thia taxation. If a larger revenue is desired
the coast coal should be likewise
taxed at ten cents per ton tho same as
the East Kootenay product, and in
this way the provincial revenue could
be increased considerably each year.

PYR1T1C SMELTING.
Until very leceutly it was thought
that ..pyritie smelting was about to
revolutionize thc smelting operations
of the West, but it becomes more uud
more apparent every day that these
expectations are not being fulfilled,
says the Mining Reporter.
Owing to tbe very low freight rates
on smelting material whereby lead
can be brought many hundreds of
miles to meet dry ores from other dis'
triets, and to the moro thurough'under
standing of the principles of wet
concentration,tho^cost of smelting ores
in a lead furnace has been so great y
reduced that pyritie, or fire concentration, can hardly meet tho competition. The pyritie smelter at Leadville
has come down, and in the best informed metallurgical circles of Colorado tbe idea prevails that although
the pyritio smeltors are metallurgical
successes, yet they cannot be classed as
any too succosslul commercially. Dr.
Carpenter, well known as a constuc-
tor of pyritie smelters, in a newspaper interview did not speak very
hopefully of tho pyritie smolter situation.
If, however, advices from North-
port, Wash., are to be believed, these
gloomy forebodings are apt to be replaced by a more optimistic feoling.
It is stated that Oscar Szontagh, tbe
new manager and metallurgist ot the
Northport Smelting company, has de-
visud a method "of fluxing which
makes lt possible to obtain a matte
io tho blast furnace alone, until it
reaches shipping grade, without subjecting it to uny preliminary treatment. Although we must confess we
do not know what this particularly
means, inasmuch, as no pyrilic smelter with which wo aro acquained
roasts or otherwise gives the ore a pre
limiiiurv treatment, yet Mr. Szontagh
may have got or to some method of
handling heavy sulphide ores very
cheaply. We feol thut pyritie smelting has by no means been developed
to its highest point of perfection,
and those who arc acquainted with
tho present condition of the mining
industry hope that the day is not far
distant when improvements shall have
beeu made in the pyritie process so
that low-grade dry ores can be lunuli. sl
at u prollt without recourse to the
lead smelter.
MILNER IS OPTIMISTIC.
Lord Milner recently said that
Johannesburg would have a popnla
tiou of 5,000,000 within ten years. It
is feared that Lord Mliner's great
tj ii tli n - i uh in fur South Africa and his
desire to have in it a very large city
bus made hiin optimistic. London,
tho largest eity in the world,
has a population of 4,530,003. New
York, the metropolis of the United
States, has a population of 3,137,202,
Paris; the third largest cily iu the
world has 2,530,831. Where centuries
of accretion have resulted in the largest
city in the world to have less than
5,0110,000 population it is difficult to
see    how  5,000,000 can    be massed
together in   a   South   African   town,
with   oven   the   excellent prnrpocts of
Johannesburg!   in  a  decade,    Lord
Milner bas made an overestimate,   we
believe of at lo'ist 4,000,000.

The ore shoot in the Silversmith

steel galena ot the highest grade ever
found on the Sioean Star hill. Assays
have beeu secured as high aa 1,500
ounces to tlie ton, and the oie will
give net reiurns away up in tbe hundreds ot ounces. There is every reason
to believe that the Hyron N White
company is opening up another enormous bonanza which will in time be
quite the equal of the world famous
Slocan Star.      	
The Sliver King mine is to resume
shipments and Me copper stack at the
Hall Mines smelter will ho blown in

Mines smelter, visited Rossland on
Tuesday ior the purpose of conferring
with the management of the West
Kootenay Powei and Light oompany
relative to the installation of electric
power in place of the present steam

complete the alterations have been
ordered and are now being manufactured. As the factories are considerably crowded it will be some time
before the smelter plant will be operated by electricity.
WHEELED THROUGH THE ICE.
Ii. Heddle Had a Narrow Escape From
Drowning Y esterday.
A narrow escape fiom drowning
occurred on the south side of the lake
pear Seven-Mile Point on Tuesday
afternoon. Mr. R. Heddle was making his way across on the iee on a
bicycle and coining on some rotten
ice broke through wthont the slightest warning, the snow on the iee concealing its treacherous quality. Fortunately Ior him, Mrs. D. McDonald,
wife of a rancher, living at Seven-
Mile point, ou the opposie Bhore of
the lake.happuned to be looking out of
the window at the time and had been
watching Mr. Heddle just as he broke
through, although he was fully a mile
away. She called to her husband
who was working not far from the
bouse and he immediately ran down
the hill and across the ice, arriving
exhausted but with enough strength
left to render the assistance which
came just in time. He took off his
coat aud holding one sleeve extended
the other to Mr. Heddle who had been
vainly struggling to climb out on the
ice, and was utterly done out. After
severe exertion tho rescue was accomplished, and Mr. Heddle was assisted
to a cabin on the shore. Here his
rescuer took off bis own dry clothing
and insisted on putting them on tho
half drowned man, partially clothing
himself in a ion old clothes and a
blanket found in tbe oi.liin. Mr. Heddle stated that if help had not oome
when it did he would bave gone too
the bottom, as the cold water was fast
benumbing him.
bicycling on the ice is a sport that
is indulged in to quite an extent in
some parts of the continent when the
climate conditions permit, but tbe
number of airholes on Kootenay Lake
make it anything but a safe place to
indulge iu tbis amusement. Mr. Heddle had been riding aronnd for some
time on the Dicycle before the acoident
occurred, and had intended riding into
the city, but is not likely to do Bny
more riding on that wheel, as it is
hardly possible that it can be fished

LEGISLATION WANTED.
Matters Nelson Hoard of Trade Will
Bring llefore Associated Boards.
At the special meeting of tbe Board
of Trade which was held yesterday
afternoon the resolution whieh had
been drawn up by the committee to
be submitted at the meeting of the
Associated Boards of Trade were read
and approved.    They were as follows:
1. Whereas the present mettiod of
levying the royalty tax on ore weighs
very unequally on the mines of the
province, be it resolved, that in the
opinion of this meeting of the Associated Boards of Trade of Eastern
Rritish Columbia the cost of mining
should be deducted and the tax levied
only on the net value of the ore.
2. That in view of the most unsatisfactory mail serivce now rendered
in tne Kootenay district whioh is
largely due to the geographical difficulties oi the country, it is the opinion of the AsMM'ialru Hoards that a
resident assistant post ofliee inspector
should lie appoin ed at once witli a
view to having the mail service of the
district under the control of an official
who would have some peisonal knowledge of the conditions, and the post
otlice department is hereby respectfully urged to have such appointment made at the earliest possible
date.
It was aho decided that the delegates from Nebon should be instructed to support the following resolutions which will be brought up by
the Kaslo delegates: Resolved that
in the event of negotiations for reciprocity with the United States being
renewed the Dominion government be
urged to appoint a representative of
this province as one of tlie commissioners.
Resolved, that whereas mining companies are compelled to pay royalties
on timber used from their own ground
in their own mines, be it resolved,
that the government be memoralised
that no royalty be collected on such
timbor used for mining purposes.
Resolved, that the Associated Hoards
of Trade in response to the invitation
of the executive council of the Dominion Hoard of Trade appoint two delegates to attend a convention of the
representatives of tho commercial
bodies in the Dominion to be held at
Ottawa early in the year 1902, to take
into consideration the question of
Improved trade relations with Great
Britain.
Whereas, the experience of another
year has demonstrated the utter inability of government officials whose
timo is wholly occupied with other
duties, to give attention to the prevention of forest fires or thc prosecution of those responsible for the lame;
Resolved tnat the Provincial government be memorialised to make provisions at the present session for the
appointment of timber rangers, whose
duty it sha'l be during thc summer
months to enforce the law in regard
to bush fires and where possible to
have incipient fires extinguished.
The delegates were also instructed to
support the following resolution submitted by the Trail Hoard of Trade:
Whereas, Canada is becoming a large
producer of pig lead and its product
is being sold to a very limited extent
in Canada, while tho bulk of it is
being disposea of in China, Japan,
Germany, and other foreign countiies,
nnd whereas, Eastern Canada is today
importing from Germany practically
all of the white lead it consumes; He
it resolved, that tho Dominion government be again requested to so increase
Its dutleB as to make the manufacture
of white lead and other manufactured
lead possible in Canada and so allow
the produeoi of pig lead in Canada
an additional raaiket in his own
country for his products.

CURLING.
The final in the Bunyan cup contest
played yesterday afternoon between
Stocks and Rae was a rather exciting
game and was watched with great
interest. In lhe fourth end Stocks
made four and as both were playing
carefully it looked as if that lead
would make him the inevitable victor, but Rae slowly pulled up until at
the beginning of the twelfth end
Stocks lead by only one point.the
score standing 10 to 9. Stocks was
lying two points when Rae went up
to play his last stone. By a clever
shot he knocked out these two and
himself lay two winning by a shot.
The rinks were : Brydges, Houston,
Campbell, Rae, skip, 11, and Beaven,
Uraeey, R. Robertson, Stocks, skip,10.
In the afternoon the semi-final in
the consolation series was played with
the following result: Gwillim,
O'Brien, Archibald, W. A. Macdonald, skip, 8, and R. Weir, MoLcnnan,
D. .1. Robertson, Pinkham, skip, 10.
Tho following two scratch games
were played during the day: Croasdaile, R. M. Bird, Tamblyn, W. A.
Macdonald, skip, 13. and Goepel, C. D.
Jarvis, Cholditch, Buchanan,   skip, 8.
Bradley, Watchorn, Irving, Archibald, skip, 0, and Nolan, II. Bird,
Smyth, Richardson, skip, 13.
Judge forin has found it impossible
for hitu to go to Winnipeg and Bradley has been selected in his place.
The two riuks for Winnipeg will
therefore be:
Walley, Wallace, Tamblyn, Wilson,
skip, and Bradley, Fox, Waugh, Rae,
skip. They will leave on Sunday
morning. As a result of the form the
players havo shown in the practice
games it is apparent that they will be
able to make any rink they meet earn
