THE MISSION .
TO OTTAWA
Refinery Delegate Croasdaile
Returns and Explains
the Situation.
Government Favorably Disposed Towards Granting a Bonus.
"I beliove that the government is
vciy favorably disposed toward the
granting of a bonus to a refining industry for Canada, and thut as soon
aH they are convinced that the necessity of the mining industry demands
the encouragement of refining on Canadian soil, au announcement of the
subsidy will be made.''
Such is the opinion of II. E. Croasdaile, who returned last evening after having represented the Nelson
board of trade and tho mine owners
of the Nelson camp, ou the Kootenay
delegation lo Ottawa in connection
with a subsidy on refined lead.
Continuing, Mr. Croasdaile stated
that the members of the government
had given the delegation a cordial reception and exhibited a desire to se-
euie a grasp of the facts bearing on
the situation. Un the Monday following the arrival of the Kootenay delegation, which rendezvoused in tbe capital, the ministers granted the visitors
an interview, arrangements for tho
meeting being made hy lion, Clifford
Sifton. The interview took place in
the premier's pHlee, and the cubinet
Was represented by the following
members 1 Sir Wilfrid Laurier, Sir
Richard ,1. Cartwrlght, minister of
trade and commerce, Hon. Clifford
Sifton, minister of tho interior, Hon,
- William S. Fielding, ui'iuisler of -fin-"
uncc, Hon. William Pateison, minister
of customs, Hon. Richard It. Dobell
and Hor,. James Sutherland.
The speakers on behalf of tho dele
gation were (Jcorgo Alexander of Kuslo, who opened, David Heap of Sandon, Mr. Croasdaile, ti.' S. Fowler, (1.
O. Iluehanaii and J, Roderick Robert-
ton. In Ihe evening the deputation
entertained the ministers aud the
members and senators for Hritish Columbia at dinner in the house of commons restaurant bt'ticath the parliament buildings. The ministers present were   Sir   Wilfrid   Laurier,   and
.Messrs. Sifton and Dobell. J.Roderick
Robertson occupied the chair and (J.
O.lliicluinan of Kaslo was in the vice-
cliair. In the course of the after-dinner speeches the ministeis again expressed themselves favorably toward
the delegation's mission.
"Though no assurance was given by
the ministers," says Mr. Croasdaile,
referring to the trip, "their attitude
on the subject wus certainly favor
.able.    I do not think   any one or two
-men, however inllueiitla', could huve
.secured the granting of the subsidy,
because there was un evident desire on
tbe pari of the member, to assure
themselves that thu subsidy was desired by the people and that the province as a whole would buck up tho
move. Tlie large delegation which
went to Ottawa, Including as it did
representatives of the mining and
commercial interests naturally bad the
'effect of   convincing   the cubinet that
jjUie necessity for the bonus was rec-
tfonlzed by ihe euuutiy generally. The
inlnisieis who took the keenest interest in thu piuposltluii were the
Hon. Messrs. Sifton and Fielding.
Af'.er the delegation as a whole hud
completed Its duty, ,S, S. Fowler, M.
E., und myself were with these two
ministeis lor some time for the purpose of giving them the technical Information about refilling   necessary to
| equip them thoroughly on the subject.
On the start It was a dlllioult matter
to make the ministers' umleistiind the
topic. They suiil If the refining industry is so essential to the mining industry uud can be ctthicd on profitably, why do not the mine owners
build und operate the plant the in-
selvefcV Of course it wus only necessary to point out that refining wus us
completely separated" from mining as
milling is from Wheat raising and
that the two constitute entirely il liferent Industrie, though dependent on
each other. 1 believe we left tbe
ministers with a thorough grasp on
the subject and qui te expect lo sec the
government take 'notion along the
Hues   advocated,    Iu   this   event   ihe
fl     ��� taken   would   be in the way   of
���     ''//)    n pledging the   payment   of
refined lead.    The pio-
moters oi . ���/A.. "ry could proceed
with the erects t'p 0 plant forthwith und the appr��,_lv�� m for the
subsidy would be plaaTed in next
year's estimates. If the subsidy is
granted 1 should expect to see the refinery started this summer at whatever point is selected for its location."
After concluding his duties on the
delegation Mr. Croasdaile remained
to watch the course of the deliberations on the Crow's Nest railroad bill,
lie was present at the meeting of the
railroad committee when the members shelved the bill until the government gave a guarantee that an agreement would be made with the coal
company safeguarding the interests
of the British Columbia smelters. On
Thursday last the committee met again
and the government's assurance us to
the guarantee was reported. Discussing the legislation, Mr. Croasdaile
gives the following important item of
information:
"In conversation with Mr. Jaffray
lie informed me that consequent on
their increased production the Crow's
Nest Coal company would be able to
grant to British Columbia smelters a
very material reduction in the price
of coke. This will tend to convince
tho public of the company's bona
fides."
GUEST  GETS  GOOD SUM
SUIT AGAINST C. P. R. AWARDED
IN    FAVOR OF   THE
PLAINTIFF.
GIVEN      EIGHTEEN      HUNDRED
DOLLARS FOR INJURIES
RECEIVED.
An aetion of more than ordinary
interest to lailroad men was concluded yesterday when Taylor & Hanning-
ton were notified by wire thnt the C.
P. R. would settle the matter of Howard Guest vs. C. P. R. by paying $1,-
H00, the amount demanded by the
plaintiff for damages received by him
through the negligence of the defendant company. Iu view of this, further proceeding in the action will not
he talien.
Howard Ouest was badly injured in
a head on collision near Bonnington
Falls on August '.'4 last. An east-
bound freight train met a work train
westbound nt u point where the crews
could not be aware of the proximity
of danger until it was too late to
avert the crash. Confusion in train orders had led to tho two trains being
on tho main line when one of them
should have been held nt Slocan .function. In the collision the flat cars attached to the work train locomotive
were piled up, and Ouest, who was
standing near the head of the String,
was thrown with great force to the
ground. Be was not marked, but bis
back was seriously injured; in fact,
ut the time it wus believed that the
spinal column had been fractured. No
one else was hurt beyond a fow
scratches. Guest was brought to the
general hospital here and was confined
there for some time, lie has not
since boon able to undertake hard
work, but is gradually improving,
and will probably   bo   perfectly   well
eventually,
In the statement of claim filed at
the time action was commenced to recover damages for Ouest, It was admitted that notice of injury bad not
been given as provided by the statute
within three months, but during that
time lluost had negotiated for a settlement, und the conductor in charge of
the train on which Ouest was employ
ed hud reported the injury lit the
time, Under these circumstances
Ouest sought to have the exception
acted on in his fuvoi, thut is, the exception enabling a judge lo wulve the
necessity of notice ol injury within
���hrcc months. Action waa taken
within six months as provided by
statute
The basis of action was thut under
the Employers' Liability Act of British Columbia, the train dlspittchei nt
Slocan Juiiotiou, In ordering the
woik train out iu the, morning and
the freight train later on the same
track, thereby causing the accident,
was an olllcer of the company having
superintendence to tho extent of these
orders over the Plaintiff Ouest, who
was a brakciiiun on the work train.
As the Employers' Liability Act
makes a company liable for all negligence of any person exercising superintendence, It was miiintulncd that
the company was liable to Ouest and
that, while Ouest was only a brake-
man and the dispatchers orders were
Issued to the conductor, Htlll us the
conductor   hud   charge   of the   entire
CHAOS IN THE LEGISLATURE
The Opposition Party Split to Pieces-The Martin Faction Joins
the Government-Curtis Deserts His Associates,
and Helmcken Will Move a Motion of
Want of Confidence,
Continued on Vuurtli Vn_t.
(Sl'ECIAI, TO TH-! MINI-IK.)
Victoria, B. C, April 24.��� The
Crisis in political circles in the province assumed a new and acute form
last night, when the Opposition had
differences in cnuous. As a result
Smith Curtis walked out of the meeting and will henceforth speak and act
as an independent member.
"I am no longer a member of the
so called Opposition party," said Mr.
Curtis this morning, when asked regarding the matter. "My association
with it ceased when I found last
night that the leader and some of his
colleagues, failing to obtain government ownership, did not seem to
think it impoitant that the Coast
Kootenay line should be a competitive
one, and that it did not mutter particularly who built it.
Mr. Curtis was nsked if this was
the sentiment of the opposition.
"I don't know anything about It,"
he replied. "I speak for myself
alone." He added, however, that
he thought he had been
VERY  BADLY   TREATED
nnd that he should have been informed of the   purpose   of the  Opposition
two weeks previously.
The defection of Curtis, and the
state of affairs which it has revealed, puts an entirely new aspect on
tbe political situation.
It has been well known for some
time that Martin wns lying low on
the matter, and different constructions were put upon his reticence.
Some held thnt it was simply part of
of a plan to draw the government on
and to render more affective a blow
he would deliver when the opportune time arrived to do so. Last
night's proceedings have established
beyond doubt tbat Messrs. Martin,
Brown, Mclnnes and Stables, and perhaps others of   the   Opposition,    will
SUPPORT THE RAILWAY BILL
as brought down last night. One of
thein intimated us much this morning and suid that the bill left them
no opposition ns it embodied, the
principles for which the Opposition
hud always contended, namely, government control of rates and a percentage of receipts.
The sensational turn of   nffuirs  has
i formed almost the sole subject of dis
, eussion about tbe corridors tbis morn-
I ing, although a similar step on the
part of Curtis was anticipated concurrently with the reopening of parliament after the Easter, recess. On
that occasion it was understood that
the member for Rossland was not at
all satisfied with the failure of the
Opposition leader to take advantage of
the demand for
A COMPETITIVE LINE
throughout the country and force
the issue on the government. However, assurances were given by the
lender of the Opposition at that time
to his impatient lieutenant that all
was well and that his hesitancy was
merely part of a tactical game.
On both sides of the house the incident bas seivcd to throw a flood of
light on many of the incidents of the
session���the . extreme friendliness of
the premier and the leader of the Opposition, the almost dally tete a
tetes in the corridors between them
and the readiness with which tin-
suggest ions of Martin were received
in the executive ranks. It lends
point too, to the position of the
two members from Victoria city
Messrs. Helmcken und McPhillips,
and the senior member from Vancouver, Mr. Harden, who last night
broke loose und
ASSAILED THE GOVERNMENT
in no unmeasured terms for coquetting with tho leader of the opposition, These gentlemen upbraided
the government for being more anxious to acoept the suggestions mid
policy of the leader of the Opposition
than those of the crown supporters.
"There is ono thing certain, "said a
clever np country government member this morning, "and that is that
there wns a perfect understanding in
the matter between the government
and Martin, else they would not have
been so ready to take risks with
those of their supporters who are determined to overthrow the measure."
It is possible that a statement may
be made by Curtis this afternoon.
The flop of Martin is the sole topic
in political cncles und is regarded as
one of the most extraordinary of his
many remarkable political acts
HELMCKEN'S MOVE.
Tomorrow Helmcken will move a
resolution setting forth thut as the almost universal sentiment is for a lail-
way independent of the C. P, R.
from the coast to Kootenay. there-
lore at the earliest possible moment
such steps should be taken by the
government as will enable a company
of proved financial ability and having
independent eastern connections to
bmld such competitive line, providing said company should not be promoted by the C, P.R. or amalgamated
with it; and the proposed agreement
must be approved   by  the legislature.
LIBERAL LAIIOR PARTY.
Victoria, B. C, April 24.���A Liberal Labor party is likely to be formed as a result of Curtis' defection,
which will include Curits, E. C.
Smith, Oliver, Neill, Monro, Kidd
nnd_Hawtliorntliwaite.
Ihe Crow's Nest Southern railway
passed its third and final reading tonight.
WANT  OF  CONFIDENCE  MOTION.
(MY ASSOCIATED -MIKSS.)
Vlotoria, Ii. C, April 84.���British
Columbia is again in tlie throes of n
political crisis brought abov* by t
government's bill to burrow live
million dollars to subsidize railways
in the province. Many of the government supporters wanted it explicitly stated that the subsidy for the
line from tho Coast to Midway
should be given to a company independent of the C. P. R. The government bill leaves it to the government
to say who the subsidy shall be given
lo, their object being to make the
best bargain possible. Joe Martin is
supporting the government bill and
he is being followed by Messrs. Brown
Mclnnes and Staples, of the Opposition party, while Martin's lieutenant, Smith Curtis, of Rossland, has
deserted the Opposition for the stand
taken by his former leader. He walked out of the Opposition caucus last
Ight. On the other hand Messrs.
Helmcken, McPhillips of Victoria and
Garden of Vancouver, have openly
come out in opposition to the government's policy which they formerly
supported and tomorrow Mr. Helmcken
will move a want of confidence motion, favoring the construction of the
Coast to Kootenay railway by an Independent company. This will show
how the liouse stands on the (pies-
lion. With the support of three members of the opposition it is expected
that the government can curry their
bill.
SPRING   MINING   ACTIVITY
MORE   OR,   LESS    DELAYED    BY
SNOW REMAINING ON THE
HILLS.
AT THE LOWER LEVELS, HOWEVER, DEVELOPMENT WORK
IS UNDER WAY.
The usual season of spring activity
in tho mining industry is more or less
delayed this year, because of the snow
which prevents work being started
on the hills. At the lower levels,
however, the prospectors have gone to
work, and development is under way.
Thin is particularly ttue with regard to the Forty-Nine creek section,
where probably twenty men lire at
work on almost ns many different
claims. At the May and Jennie mine,
a crew of miners is employed on development but no particular change In
the condition of affairs may be expected until the wngon road on the creok
improves sufficiently to permit work
to bo resumed on the mill building,
In the meantime the work on the
claims adjoining Is progressing steadily and the section will probably bo
the busiest iu the Nelson district this
year.    In the vicinity of the Republic
everal properties are being operated
at the present time and others tire
expected to commence shortly, .lohn
Miles has a man or two at work on the
Plfadise and tbe lead located recently
Is improving consistently with depth.
On the Republic the owners, Joe'
Duhamel and a partner, huve one or
two men and they are working Steadily on the promising vein opened up
last year. A feature of the Republic
Is that the claim is on a plateau and
practically nothing is gained In depth
as the work progresses However, the
ledge holds strong and the owners are
well-satisfied with the prospect, Mi
C. Monaghan and George II. Keefer
have a man at work on the Belle fraction which adjoins the Majestic,
which In turn adjoins the Paradise.
From the direction taken by the lend
on the Republic so fur us it has been
opened up the impression is Held that
the ledge crosses tbe Belle fraction
and quarters up hill In a southwesterly direction. The owners of the Belle
propose to ascertain whether or not
the prediction is correct. One factor
which makes prospecting difficult In
tins' particular vicinity Is that the
country rock Is covered ten to twenty
feet with wash and the ledges have
beon so eroded thnt they no iongei
outcrop. Forty-Nine creek Is too far
away for ground sluicing so that the
prospector, prefer to allow "the oilier
man" to open up a ledge und determine its direction before starting
operations on their own hook. The
Duncan Mines and other Corporations,
including a California outfit, huve
interests ill the vicinity and Ihe former has spent considerable money In
exploring their holdings. A few
weeks is more thun likely lo see other
operations under way.
On Forty-Nine creek pioper woik is
under wuy on the llomcstulio owned
by Porter brothers of Nelson. They
have driven u long crosscut this winter and encountered some ore, though
nut thu vein which their workings
were designed to Up, The tunnel Is
being continued and the main ledge
Is likely to be encountered shortly.
Tho lloinestake will then have its
ledge in place In the surface workings
and ut considerable depth also. At
the Crown Point group R. II. Ougiin
has done cousidcable work during
the winter having boon on the ground
constantly. His property is said to
be looking remarkably well and to
have u fine showing of ore. At other
points ulong the creek work Is to be
started shortly. It is understood that
the prospectors owning claims on the
creek above the May and Jennie
claim that the wagon road built lust
full does not answer their purposes
neaily so well as would have been the
ease   hud the   load   been   constructed
along the top of the divide then cut
ting down the creek. This would not
have suited the ohly property working
on a large scale, however, and it was
natural that the road should have been
run just where it is now. Later as
the creek is developed the government
will doubtless take action in affording
the road facilities necessary.
On Bird creek the work has not
got under wuy to any extent as yet although M. C. Monaghan has started
operations on the group owned in
partnership with M. Ryan. Up to the
present time the property has not
been opened up beyond assessment
work, but the surface showing is good
and further work promises to demonstrate a continuous lead carrying excellent value in gold. Higher up the
creek the snow is still too deep to permit of work on a large scale, but a
few weeks will see other owners at
work. It is cxpeeted that the Whitewater people will open up their property further this Bummer, the intention last fall when work was suspended because"of the snow, being to proceed this spiing as soon as circumstances pcriinttcd. Godfrey Birtsch
has valuable claims not far from the
Whitewater     and    did     considerable

The long-anticipated announcement
of the government's railway policy
has at- last been made. There will
two opinions we think
f aiding the eon-
si r net Unitof some of the various lines
whicli ar projected, but the briefest examination of the terms upon
which tile government -will grant
charters .will, convince anyone that
considerable, opposition will be manifested to-tho adoption of such a policy, not only by members in the
house but tllVougbout the Country generally. In tlie lirst place and apait
from any (piestion of Dominion inter-
ferenceiWs extremely doubtful if responsible companion will contract
with tlni gpverninent for the construction of the roads mentioned on such
terms : and stipulations us are to be
insisted upon. Tbe concluding sec
tion of^ the schedule of provisions
reads as follows:
"That such other terms and conditions may bo imposed lis tho lieuten-
ant-govornor-in-cuiineii may deem advisable. "
This seems   a rather   extraordinary
proposal.    What   guarantee wonld tho
contracting  company   have   that  the
stipulations   it   hud agreed to at   the
time of the   giunting   of   the   charter
would be lived up to by the government? In other words, of what value
would be-any agreement whatsoever'.'
Surely it will not be argued that capitalists should put their money mlo au
enterprise which could be manipulated
by the government nt its every whim!
The government's proposal seems a
most unbusinesslike one. Perhaps
this will prove a mistaken idea and
that tune will show tbat the policy
was wisely conceived. We hope so.
The construction of the lines which
tiro specified will prove very beneficial
to the Country, und interference with
tlni caii'ying out of the government
progiainiiie in its main features would
he a mutter for sincore regret; but It
is very difficult lo dispel the thought
thai the government has gone u step
too far in an uttempt to hedge thu
ohartCJB, with uonditions ami stipulations ostensibly in the interest of Unpeople.- It would not be at all surprising if this view prevails among a
sufficient number of thu members of
ihe legislature to Indicate lo the gov-
einmenl that it has made considerable
of a blunder,
ment are obvious
foi that matter the employers���would
be much benefitted by the opportunity which would thus be given for outdoor recreation; and, besides, the
temptation which exists to indulge in
games on Sunday would be removed.
This latter feature of the advantages
which may be mentioned is one which
will appeal strongly to many who
have complained against
of Sabbath desecration,
general public are concerned, we
tliink we may say that no opposition
would be manifested to the suggested
arrangement. At first glance ii might
lie thought tbat a mid-week half-holiday would   prove un   inconvenience to
patrons of the different establishments; but we think theie would be
little ground for complaint when due
announcement had been made of the
intention to close and the public
grew accustomed to the system. On
the principle that credit should be
given lo whom credit is due we mention that the inauguration of the movement for the half-holiday is due to
the efforts oi Mr. K. C, Beaton, business manager of The Miner. Mr.
Beaton is not looking for fame or
popularity, and personally has no desire to see his name mentioned in this
connection, but the editor ot The
Miner knows of no reason v.hy publicity should not be given to tho coin-
lueiidnble pu'ulic-spiritcdness he bus
shown.

Canada has 17,HIM miles of railway
in operation and at the present time
about 1,000 more under construction.
Much of this road runs through tei-
litory practically uninhabited and
wholly undeveloped. But for large
government subsidies the lines could
never have been built. The Dominion
government has made grants of 8151,���
161,423,4S to the railroads of Canada,
828,000(000 of which was given to the
Canadian Pacific alone. The various
provincial governments also have voted large subsidies from time to time lo
aid in building sectional roads. Iu
addition to its grants for construction
woik the Dominion lias contributed
881,391,472.1*1 for maintenance and
operation of government roads, making a grand total of 82j)2,553,805.50.
The revenues derived from the government roads since confederation amount
to $73,285,889,16, Construction of Canadian roads began in lSllli in which
year there were sixteen miles in operation in Canada. There was no in-
ciease until 1817, when thirty-eight
miles were added, In 1850 the mileage
bad grown to sixty-six. In the following decade the (.rami Trunk was
built and the end of the period suw
'..(Hir, miles In operation. The next
live yearn 17r, miles were added. In
lSliil the total mileage of the Dominion was :.V.'TH, and there was no ill-
crease until 1S70, when it rose lo :;,���
617. All this road wus built on wbut
wus known as the bioud gunge���.j feet
s. inches. Then some niirrow-giHige
roads were constructed, with the
view of GGOIJUttiy iu operation. In
1H7'2-?:I the standard gauge, I feet x.1..,
inches was adopted, und Canada with
the United Slates made it the common
Standard, Between 1STII and 1HSII.
4,241 miles of road were built in Cun-
iidu. The next decade witnessed tlie
construction of Canadian Pacific, lu
those ten years 0,81)3 miles of new
railroad were constructed in Uu- Dominion, In Ihe succeeding ten years
4606 miles were added lo make the total of 17,884 whicli now exists. Investment of capital In these roads is 8998,���
308,404 or approximately 854,000 per
mile. Owners of somo of the roads
contributed little of their own,means
to build them. The construction of
some of I lie iii actually put money Into
tllO pojkets of their owners and cielll-
ed   burden    for   the taxpayers of   the
country,

A RESOLUTE PRKMItill,
The Hon. James Dunsmuir is credited with having told some obstructionists within the government party at
Victoria, that he is prepared to resign
the moment he finds that the private
interests of those supposed to be supporting him,are to be arrayed against
his proposals for the general benefit.
The report is not vouched for, and
being of proceedings iu caucis where
all present are on their honor not to
tell what transpires, it is more likely
to be wrong than right. Hut quite
probably those are the premier's sentiments. He does not hold office for
the glory of ruling.or the emoluments
of position, and would not be a figurehead for a party who refused to
follow bim on a great occasion like
the present. It is to be hoped, however, that Mr. Dunsmuir will long
continue to occupy his present position. There will be uo stagnation in
public affairs under his direction.���

BUSINESS, CIIANlil.-
A business change was eonsuniaied
yesterday by which Sidney A. Kelly,
formerly of the provincial police
force, purchased tlie business of the
Kootenay Cigar Manufacturing company. IL- will continue the business
as, the Kootenay Cigar Company anil
will manufacture the Royal Seal and
other, brands which have achieved
popularity in the past. II. S. Hawthorne will continue with the firm as
accountant.
TIME WAS UP.
It Was Quit Ooffee or Die.
Tllf-; Tl'Bl-.h UKUI.-
The Morris lubes, shipped from the
militia stores department to the local
military company arrived yesterday.
L'nfoitunately the company has no
place to place the range in position
and it is likely that the lubes will nol
be user! until the promised armory
materializes. Tlie Morris tube is an
arrangement by which indoor target
shooting can be rractieed with the
regulation rille under similar conditions as pievail on ordinary ranges.

PERSONAL
When a woman is brought to the
edge of the grave by poisoning from
tho drinking of ordinary coffee day by
day, ���nd is then made a well woman
by-leaving il oil', her experience is
'.voi'tb something to others that are
poisoned iu various ways from the
same' habit. Mrs. .Icannetto H.
Brown. 100 Minor St., New Haven,
Conn.-, says: "Four years ago my life
hung on a very slender thread with
liver, kidney and heart trouble, and a
veny severe form of rheumatism. I
was confined to bed with hands,
wiists, feet and ankles so badly swollen .Unit they bore no resemblance to
parts of the human body. I had frequent sinking spells from heart weakness when I thought to be dying and
sdhum,'mcs thought to be dead. My
Doctor, one of Hie directors of the
state hospital, a very successful man
in his profession, told me to stop
drinking coffee und use Postum Food
CullVe. us he said coffee was the prim-
aiy _auso of my trouble.
I took his advice at once antl discontinued medicines. Slowly the
swelling disappeared, and the rheumatism left inc. tlie sinking spells became less frequent, and 1 got out of
bed and around the liouse. I WttH
completely cured but It required some
time.
I'm' the past three years I have been
a perfectly strong, healthy woman,
sleep well, with good appetite, good
color, active, and  energetic.
It is ti great pleasure to testify to
Postum that has made me a well woman again. 1 have many friends here
and in other pails of the state who
ate using Postum Food Coffee regularly, and I know to their very great
benefit.
