Nelson,   British Columbia, Friday,  February 14, 1902
Eleventh Year
Indorsement of a Resolution
Forced on Board of
Those Who Were ln Favor of
It Declined a Postpon-
At a meeting of the Board of Trade
last evening those present were:
President 0. V. Holt, J. J. Cauiphell,
F. Starkey, Ohas. Hillyer, Thorburn
Allen. Wm. Huntei, A. J. Marks, W.
\V. Beer, E. H. Applewhaite, George
Nunn and Secretary Y. W. Swannell.
The principal business was the discussion of the resolutions to he takon
up at the meeting ot the Associated
Hoards of Trade. Of these one passed
hy the Greenwood Board of Trade,
whieh the Nelson hoard was asked to
endorse, evoked considerable diaous-
sion. It was as follows: Whereas
the welfare of a large portion of
Southern British Columbia depends
upon tho extensive devalopment of
laige bodies of low grado ore and,
whereas the treatment of such ore to be
done successfully must bo done most
economically, and whereas, the cost
of fuel represents a large percentage
of the total cost of treatment, and
whereas, the present cost of feul appears excessive and should if possible
bo reduced, therefore be it resolved,
that the Associated Board of Trado of
Eastern British Columbia in convention assembled ls strongly of the
opinion that the welfare of certain
parts of eastern British Columbia, the
Boundary seotion in particular, demands cheaper fuel and earnestly
urges upon the Dominion government
the ad visibility of doing ovory thing
Within its power to encourage the
opening up of new coal fields, either
by individuals or companies, and in
every other available way reducing
the oost of fuel.
W, W. Beer was of the opinion
that this resolution was a good thing
and that the opening up of some of the
coiiliields of the Crow's Nest Pass by
un independent company would be a
good move.
Mr. Holt said he supposed it would,
hut that it would ho rather hard to
say what would be an independent
company or how long it would remain
so. The only way that tho government
could guard that a sufficient supply of
coal should he available for Canadian
smelters was by placing regulaitons
ic the lease with any company operating. This had already been done,
ho understood, in the agreement with
thc Crow's Nest Coal company. The
government could also interfere with
the export ot coal at any time by
plaeing an export duty on it although
this was hardly likely to be done as it
would intefere with other coal fields
too much, whose trade was largely
with the states, Buch as those on Vancouver island and in Nova Scotia.
Mr. Applewhaite thought that it
was hardly wise for the board to take
any action on this resolution at such
short notioe. It was sent around to
each hoard but the members were not
well acquainted with the circumstances. Ho thought it better to leave
the matter in the hands of tho delegates to act on it as they saw fit after
hearing it discussed at the meeting
"I the associated boards.
Mr. Bolt agreed witn Mr. Applewhaite. The resolution sounded all
right, hut If they endorsed it they in
a measure tied their delegates hands,
and v. huii the resolution was finally
brought up it might be considerably
���note drastic than it was at prosent.
Mr. Beor did not think tho present
prioe of coal and coke at all reasonable and quoted tho price of coal in
Nova Scotia io support of his
M .Holt��� re there not a slight difference in the wages paid In the Crow's
Nest Pass and tne Nova Scotiau
mines? t
Some disoussion then followed on
the price of coal, when it was figured
out that the screened ooal cost 82.25
at tlm mine. The freight was $40 per
���ar, weighing is cents per ton, and
hauling $1 per ton. Several oi the
memhers thought that $40 a car fpr
coal or coke sfieroed a decidedly high
price to charge for freight by tho railway company.
Mr.   Applewhaite   aaid   he did  not
like tbe idea of passing tbe resolution
which might bo so construed as to lay
the bonus of a high price on tho coal
company when it might really be the
fault of the railway oompany.
Mr. Allen did not think this was
the eaBe. Tho resolution only aBked
for action on the part of the government towards lowering the price of
fuel by any means wnatever.
On motion of W. W. Beer, seconded
by T. Allen it was decided that the
resolution of the Greenwood board
should be endorsed.
It was decided that a circular letter
should he sent out to the merchants
and business men of the city inviting
them to become members of the board.
lt was also decided that the provincial
government should be requested
through the local member to make a
grant with the object of having tbo
province represented at the mineral
exhibition to be held in St. Louis in
Earthquake Shock Felt iu Kettle River

Graud Forks, Feb. 13.���A distinct
earthquake shock,whioh was of several

other points in tbe Kettle River valley

The Grand Forks Board of Trade
has adopted a resolution requesting
the Associated Boaids of Trade of the
Kootenays to take sucb action as will
result in obtaining what is known as
better terms for British Columbia
from the Dominion.
What Greenwood Smelter is Said to
Have Said About the Supply.
Grand Forks, Feb. 13.���A telephone
message fiom Greenwood, disclosed
the fact that the Greenwood smelter
wonld have been compelled to close
down ou account of lack of coke, had
it not been for diversions which were
mado to them by the Hall Mines and
Granby smelters. This is rather an
interesting state of affairs, in view of
the tact that there is moro coke being
shipped to the United States than to
Canadian points. This emphasizes the
fact of the invariable pretcrenee given
to coal and coke oiders from United
States institutions tributary to the
Gieat Northern lailway. ,

Ottawa, Feb. 13.���Parliament was
formally opened today with the usual
ceremonies. Tbe memhers of the Commons being summoned to the Senate
chamber, the Governor-Genoral delivered the following speech:
Hon.     Gentleman     of   the     Senate;
Gentlemen       of      the     House    of
In meeting you again at the commencement uf another session of parliament, it is my first duty to express
the deep sense of our gratitude to
divine providence for the many blessings which Canada has received during the past year, and particularly for
the exceptionally bountiful harvest in
Manitoba and the Northwest territories.
It was very gratifying to note the
cordial reception tendered by all
classes of the peoplo to tbe Prince and
Princess of Wales on the occasion of
their visit in September and Octoher
last,the only regrettable feature being
the limited time at tbeir disposal,
whioh prevented their visiting many
important centres of population. It
is, however, a great satisfaction to
know that Their Roval Highnesses
enjoyed their tour through Canada and
carried away tne most pleasant recollections ot their visit to this part of
the empire.
Thc assassination of Prosident Mc
Kinley has elicited a universal feeling
of sympathy and soirow throughout
tbe civilized world, and though Canada has happily so far been free from
crimes of this character, the close
proximity to the United States may
make it advisable to join our efforts
to tbe efforts of the United States aud
other nations and to provide by legislation tor the adequate punishment
of those who, either by speech or
writing, incite fanatics to the perpetration ot such horrible.crinies.
The returns of the late census will
he laid before you, and while he
absolute increase in the number of
population is not so great as might
have been expected, the evidences of
growth in wealth ard in the general
tokens of prosperous development are
highly 'satisfactory. There is good
reason also to believe that the in-
oros.se ot population during the latter
half of the decade has been greatly in
excess of the average of former years,
and that in the near future, we may
look for a much moro rapid growth
tban occurred during tbe period
covered by the last two censuses.
Application having been made by
the C.P.R. company for approval of
an increase of its capital to moet the
demand for additional rolling stock
and other improved facilities foi
bundling the growing traffic, my
ministers availed themselves of the
opportunity to stipulate that the long
pending question of tho power of the
Governor-in-Counoil to regulate the
tolls of tho oompany should be submitted to the courtB for a jnaicial
decision. The correspondence and
other papers will be laid before you.
The investor, Mr. Marconi, having
met unexpected obstacles to tbo carrying out of his experiments in wireless
ocean telegraphy in a Bister colony,
my ministers deemed it expedient to
invite him to continue his operations
on the coast of Nova Scotia, and they
availed themselves of his presence in
Canada to enter into negotiations resulting in an arrangement through
which, should the project provo as
successful as is hoped for, the government and people of Canada will enjoy
the benefits of the invention on very
favorable terms, including rates for
tiaiis-M Untie r.essages very much
below those now existing.
I am pleased to inform you that
the display made by Canada of her
products at the several expositions at
which thoy have been exhibited during the last year has attracted much
attention, and has already   resulted in
Lord Cranborne Makes Statement on  Japanese
Friendly Relations With the
United States Not Imperilled.
(Continued on Third Page.)
London, Feb. 18.���The parliamentary Secretary of Foreign Affairs Lord
Cranborne, replying in the House of
Commons today to Henry Norman,
Liberal, said that tbe Anglo-Japanese
treaty of alliance was communicated
to the United States government bo-
fore its text was published and that
the United States did not expose any
���pinion on the subject. Lord Cran-
hrone added the information that
Manchuria was no more excluded
from the scope of the agreement than
any other province of tho Chinese empire. Tho substance of the agroement,
Lord Cranborne also said, was communicated to Germany.
Mr. Norman said he objected to the
British-Japanese treaty on the ground
that it waa evidently an anti-Uussian
threat and that it tied Great Britian
to the wheels of Japanese policy,
whereby she might be forced to go to
war against  her own interests.
Lord Cranborne explained that the
contracting parties were only bound
to undertake the mutual dofense of
their interests when the danger was
due to tho aggression of others and
the power called upon to help the
other must judge whether the conditions of the treaty had been fulfilled.
The Libera} loader, Sir Henry
Campbell-Kannerman, thought that
the indentioal interests of Gieat
Britam, the United States and Japan
could have been sufficiently secured
by an interchange of notes, instead of
by an explicit undertaking of thiB
The government leader, A. J. Balfour, said there seemed to be an impression that something hostile to
peace was behind tho agreement.
That was not so. The treaty was
strongly for peace, beei, ise even the
most adventurous nation would shrink
from attaoking Japan with the knowledge that Great Britain would also
have to be encountered. The treaty
was not unfriendly to other nations.
It would, Mr. Balfour hoped, have a
sobering effect on the continental
schools of thought, whioh imperilled
the world's peace. Continuing, Lord
Cranborne said Russia had recognized
Japan's special position in Corea, by
tho agreement of 1808 and almost
every power had indorsed the principle of the open door and thc territorial integrity of China. Tho new
treaty, therefore wbb merely along
tbe lines already accepted by almost
every power. Great Britain's commercial position in China was of tho
greatest importance and wbo oould
say what its importance would be-
oomo in futuro with China's infinite
capacity for expansion. Britain's
commercial position though great was
not unchallenged. .Spheres of influences did not suit her. She wanted
the wholo of China open to industrial enterprises. The government was
bound to take every cure tn safeguarding its commercial rightB in the
orient. Japan's special interest was
governed by her geographical position. Her army and Great Britain's
navy wero acting in ooncert and r.ere
peculiarly able to maintain the lore-
going policy.
Lord Cranborne said in conclusion
that he would supplement his earlier
statement regarding the United States
by saying: Through all the doings
in China, her relatione between Great
Britain and Iho Unitod States were
marked by tho gieateat cordiality.
At almost every crisis aud in the case
of every small difllaulty which had
arisen during tbe negotiations at
Pekin the United Sta'es and BrltiBn
representatives had always acted
together. There iB no doubt that in
tbls agreement we shall command the
full approval of the government of the
Unitod States.
This   statement   was received   with

Lord LanHiluwne   Explains tho Treaty
and Lord Roachory Approves it.
London, Fub. 13.���The Foreign Sec
retary, Lord Lansdowne, in tho House
of Lords today, made a somewhat similar   roply   on   the 6ubjeot of the new ,
dual alliance,   to the one made in the i
House    of   Commons   by   the under-
Foreign Secretary, Lord Cranliorne.
The object of the alliance was
threefold���the maintenance of the
status quo; tbe policy of the open
At-T, and the maintenance of peace in
the far east. No other power's interests in the lar cast were at all comparable witb those of Great Britain
and Japan. While it was truo that the
alliance of Great Britain with other
powers had been regarded heretofore
with considerable suspicion, ho franky
declared that tbe government was
not going to be deterred by these
considerations. They saw on all
sides the tendency of the great powers
to form groups and tho over increasing naval aud military armaments
involving ever increasing burdens on
the people. In this days wars broke
out with a suddenness which was not
the case in former years. So the
country adopting without reservation
tho doctrine that all alliances must be
avoided, must be endowed with an
extraordinary amount of self sufficiency. There was much greater
danger ln leaving great onestions of
international polioy to a vague, hasty
understanding, than in embodying
thorn explicitly in an agreement, the
purport of whioh can bo understood.
Great Britain desired to protect Japan
against what she conceived to be tho
gravest peril that might menace her,
namely a coalition of the powers
against her. The agreement wc u id
compel Great Britain to come to thc
rescue of a friendly country, whose
obliteration by the coalition of the
powers Great Britain could not under
any circumstances tolerate. The treaty
was not connected with the government's decision regarding Wei Hai
Wei, but the maintenance of the independence of Japan and tho protection of Corea were of the utmost importance to Great Britain as well as
Japan. Lord Rosebery expressed general approval of the treaty. He said
the effeot of the treaty would be felt
in a great part of Europe and in the
rest of the uivilized world.
Anglo-Japanese Agreement Was Communicated to tile II. S.
London, Feb. 14.���The statement of
Lord Cranborne, under secretary of
Foreign affairs, in the Houso of Commons, that the substance of the Anglo-
Japanese agreement was communicated to the United Siates government
before publication, has excited renewed discussonB as to thc attitude of
the United States.
The Daily News thia morning ast-s
why in the world the treaty should
have been previously communicated
to the United States, since America,
the embarrassed owner of the Philippine9, has no interests in the fai east
comparable to those of Great Britain
and Japan.
The Daily Chronicle alludes to a
suggestion that it waB foro knowledge
of the treaty that inspired the United
States to encourage China against the
demands of Russia. This same question has been much discussed in
Vienna, where it seems to he thought
that Great Britain and Japan formally
invited the United States to join the
alliance and that Washington declined to do so on tbe plea that it desired
to keep a free hand.
Pekin, Feb. 13.���Tho Anglo-
Japanese alliance became generally
known here today and has created a
profound sensation. Those British
and Japanese residents ol I'ekln, whose
opinio,,s are worthy of consideration,
believe tho alliance insures peace, and
will effectually check the dismemberment Bchomos of the ether powers.
Tbe chief objection raised by the
diplomats of opposing interests is
lound in the clause of the alliance
which contemplates possible intervention in tho event of internal disturbances in China territory. Thoie diplomats are telling the Chinese officials
that the new treaty amounts to an
attempt to establish an Anglo-
Jnpaneso protectorate which threatens
China's independence. Chinese oftlcial-
dom, including Prince Ching, the
president of the Foreign olllco, professes hearty approval of the treaty.

The Canadian Pacific railway has
resumed its crusade in favor of its
plan to absorb or to have absorbed the
50,000 acres of ooal land, which the
government reserved in the Crow's
Nest coal basin for the benefit of tbe
people. For a shoit time after the
recent exposure of its endeavor to
work 00 the patriotic feelings of the
people in its ondeavor to secure its
selfish ends there was a cessation of
the efforts, but they have broken out
again in several places. For some
time past agents of the railway have
been touring through tbo province,
endeavoring to excite and inflame the
publio mind by means of various
libels against the Crow's Nest railway and tho Crow's Nest Coal company. These were in the shape of
alarming stories to the effect that the
smelting industry of British Columbia
Is threatened by the construction of
the Crow's Nest Southern railway,
that as soon as it is finished t"��e fuel
produced in the Crow's Nest mines
would all be hauled to ibe other side
of the line and tho American smelters
would be given cheaper luel than
those ln Canada and a lot of other
slanders of a similar kind that are as
foolish as they are unreliable.
Tho propaganda which is now
emanating from the Canadian Pacific
bureau of misinformation and wbich
is being published in its organs is apparently a new tack and has taken on
a tone which is more panicky tban
ever. It affects to bo fearful that tbe
interests of tne province will in some
dire way be affected���unless the C. V.
R.,cr some close corporation, mado up
principally of tho officers and stock-
hoalders of tho company, aro given
tbe coal la.ids reserved hy the government. Thc propaganda in favor of
tho monopoly says, l'givo us the coal
lauds and watch ns save tho mining
and smelting interests of tbe province
from total destruction."
These agents and organs after weeks
of work have succeeded in inducing
the (Irand Forks Board ol Trado to
adopt a resolution requesting that a
resolution dealing with the question
of t'i,c coke and coal supply from the
Crow's Nest and tho protection of the
governmont reserves therein, be
brought boforo tho Associated Boards
of Trade ot tbe Kootenays and Yale
at the approaching meeting at Kaslo.
At lirst sight tllis resolution appears
innocent enough and so it would be
did it represent the unhampered sentiment of the members of tho board, but
when it is known that agents of tbe
C.P.R. have been in the Boundary for
some time past and that their object
was to secure the adoption of such a
resolution, it shows that pressure has
been brought to bear and that the
resolution Is the result ol such pressure.
Tlm peoplo of Orand Forks hive felt
the full force of tlm brutal despotism
of the Cl'.II. in various ways. In tlio
first place the railway sidetracked
(Irand Forks because it could not
obtain as a free gilt u largo portion of
tbe townsite. ami built its station at
Columbia and with tlie aid of others
it established a rival town to '.irand
Forks. Tim peoplo of (liand Forks
desired that tlie Kettle River Valley
railroad should be constructed in order
that they might have tlio buuellts of a
competing railway and ono that
would build through tlieir city,instead
of sidetiacikng it, but the effort to
secure the charter wns burked on three
different OCOalons lluoiigh the buccaneer-like tactics of the C. 1'. It. After
years of effort thn charter for the
Kettle River Valloy railway was
finally obtained and tbo road is being
built,and the C.P.R. Anally discovered
that it wocld be to its interost to
patch up a peace with the peoplo of
(irand Forks and this has bean dono. I
Tho people, however, have felt the
jron hand ot tho monopoly and the
resolution was adopted more under
duress, perlnips than for any othor
reason, as none of the citizens desired
to bo furthor oppressed by  the  bully
ing monopoly It was fear rather
than love that made tbe passage of
the resolution possible.
Under such circumstances the pass-
ago of the resolution by the Grand
Forks Board of Trade should be taken
for what it is really worth. Tho only
wonder is that tbe arrogant railway
monopoly did not insist on something
stronger, as it thinks probably that it
has tho people of Grand Forks completely under its thumb.
Four members of the city council or
Thursday evening voted In favor of
making Thomas Lillie chief of tbe
Are department. Mr. Lillie was chief
of tho department last year and was
dismissed by the mayor and council.
Mayor Fletcher very properly refused
to confirm the appointment pending
an investigation of tbo cause for
whioh Mr. Lillie was dismissed rest
year. The members who voted for
Mr. Lillie, we believe, showed more
aispostion to stir up strife in the city
government than a desire to servo tee
best interests of the city. They
were elected to serve the city and to
oarry out tho wishes of the citizens
and not to gratify their private whims
or to aid vendettas.
There were a number of applicants
for the position and among these were
some very competent firemen who
could All the position to tho satisfaction of all of the ratepayers, and
against whom nothing could, vzitb
justice, be said.
What is wanted^is a good Areman
for chief and not the friend of this oi
that political faction. The place is
one of thd most important in the gift
of the city counoil and the very best
and most competent fireman that can
bo secured should be awarded the
place and not one who has been tried
and found wanting, in the opinioD, at
least,of the last city counucil.
With an incompetent head of tbe
Are department the citizens may at
any moment see a fire get beyond control of the department and the entire
city dostroyed through tho lack of a
very small precaution. In that event,
there would be haste made to put in a
flrst class man at thc head of tbe
department, to reorganize tho person
uoi of the department, to provide bettor apparatus and generally to place
everything on a good footing. That
would be in the nature of lock
ing tho stable aftor the horse was
The better way is to immediately

Asthmalene Brings Instant Relief and Permanent Cure in all Cases.
There is noth ing  like Asthmalene.   It
brings .instant relief, even in t e   worst
It cures when all else fails.
The Rev. O. F. WELLS, o Villa Ridge,
111., says: "Your trial bottle of Asthmalene received in good oondition. I oannot
tell you bow thankful I feel for the (rood
derived from it. I was a slave, chained
with putrid sore throat and asthma for ten
years. I despaired of ever being cured. 1
saw your advertisement for the cure of
this dreadful and tormenting disease, Asthma, and thought you had overspoken
yourselves, but resolved to give it a trial.
To my astonishment the trial aoted like a
charm.    Send me a full size bottle.

Dn. Taft Bros. Medicine Co.,
Gentlemen: Your Asthmalene is an
excellent remedy for Asthma and Hay
Fever, and its composition alleviates all
troubles whicb 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,
Yesterday a dispatch reaohed this
olliee from (irand Km lis which was
to the effect that a telephone message
had been received in Orand Forks
from Greenwood which alleged tha'
tho Greenwood smelter would have
boen compelled to closo down on uc
count of a lack of coko had it not
beon that the Hall Mines and Orand
KorliB smelters furnished it with a
supply of luel. Tho despatch further
says that this is an interesting state
of affairs, in view of tho fact that
there Is moro enko boing shipped to
the United States than to Canadian
points.    ThiB  emphasizes  tho  fact,
concludes lhe dispatch, of the invariable prelerenco given to coal and coke
orders from United Stales institutions
tributary to the Great Northern
Much of tho foregoing is a weak
invention of the makers of the propaganda for the Canadian I'aclHc railway and the wonder is that thoy are
allowed to he sent out by Sir Thomas
and his associates. The practice now
is at the Crow's Nest coal mines to
give pruforonce to tho ears of tho 0.
P. B., 8" that orders from H.,C. points
shall be filled flrst. Whon cars of tho
C.I'.It. aro loaded then those intonded
for United States points aro filled.
This being tlie case tho blame, If any,
for any shortage of coke which may
exist should bo shouldored by the
Canadian I'aeitlo railwav. Either
there has not boon enough cars, and
thoro have been complaints on the
part of tho coal company on this
acconnt, or there is a delay somewhere along tho lino of the railroad
between Fernie and (Ireonwood.
Happily there will soon be relief from
these annoyances, for just as soon as
thc Crow's Nest Southern is finished
there will be plenty of ears and no
delay in transport, and the Great
Northorn system foitnnatoly extends
into Nelson, Rossland and tbe
Uoundary country.

Gentlemen : I write this testimonial from a sense of duty, having tested the
wonderful effect of your Asthmnlene, for the cure of Asthma, My wife has
been alllcted with spasmodic astbma for the past 12 years. Having exhausted
my own skill ns well us many others, 1 chanced to see your sign upon your
windows on 130 th street, New York, I at onoe obtained a bottle of Asthmalenn.
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 sho is entiroly free from all symptoms. I feel that I can consistently recommend the medicine to all who are afflicted with tbis distressing disease.
Yours respeetfully, O. D. PHELPS, M. D.

Gentlomen: I was troubled with Asthma for 22 years. 1 have tried numerous remedies, bnt they have all failed. I ran aoross your advertisement and
started with a trial bottle. I found relief at once. I have since purchased your
full sized bottle, and I am ever grateful. I have a family of four obildren, and
for six yearB wns unable to work. I am now in the best of health and inn doing
business every day.   Tllis testimony you can make such use of as you see St.

Senator Collom Intends il he can to
bring the reciprocity treaties to a vote
in tho Senate ol the United States, if
he possibly can accomplish the object.
There i�� considerable opposition to
such a course in that body and tho
members of tho Foreign Ah/airs committee nre among reciprocity's opponents. Senatur Collom feels, however,
that there is a considerable eleniont
in the United States in favor of reciprocity and thinks that a spirited
debate in the senate, in which its
friends would advance their views In
its favor, would have considerable
effect and perhaps, lend to the ultimate adoption of the policy. One of

I may also congratulate you on the
satisfactory continuation of the revenue and on the steady and continuous
expansion of the business of the
country as evidenced by the increased
volume of exports and imports. With
tlie view of still further facilitating
the developing other trade with other
countries, it will probably be found
expedient to incroase the number of
oar commercial agencies, and parliament will bo asked to consider the
desirability of making additional
provision for that purpose.
I have also pleasure in informing
you that tbe governments of Australia
and New Zealand have accepted an
invitation from my governmont to attend a conference in London next
June for thc consideration of trade,
transportation, cable and other matters of intercolonial concern, and it
is hoped that the meeting may lead to
an extension of Candain trade with
those important portions of His
Majesty's domains.
I have further to advise you that my
government having caused inquiry to
be made, has reached the conclusion
that the establishment ot direct steamship service with South Africa, would
enable Canada to secure ln that
country a profitable market for her
varied products, and to that end, will
endeavor to arrange for such a service.
His majesty has been graciously
pleased to invite the premier to be
present ut the ceremonies attending
his coronation, lt is to be hoped tbat
thc presence of the leading statesmen
of the several colonies upon this occasion will afford an opportunity for the
discussion of subjects of mutual Interest which may considerably affect
the development of oar trade and commerce in thc near future with tbe
mother country and with our sister
(ientlemen of tbe Bouse of Commons: The publio nccounts fcr the

Bon. Gontlemen of the Senate;
Gentlemen of the Houso of Commons:
I commit the above matters and all
others which may be submitted to
you, to your earnest consideration and
I rely upon your wisdom and prudence
to deal with thorn in the manner
which, under devine providence, may
prove most conductive to too be6t
interests of Canada.
Mining Men There Inclined  to Places
Where Labor ib Cheap.
E. A. Woahes, who returned to Nelson this woek after a short visit to
London, states that in London at tbe
present time the groat subject of interest among mining men in the South
African mines, lt is hard to get new
investors for British Columbia mines
althougb those who bave interests in
the mines scorn well satisfied with
them. The mines of British Columbia
are generally eonsiderod of low grade,
and the general opinion in London is
tbat tho working of thorn at present is
far more expensive than it should be.
To work the mines here to advantage
the greatest eoonomy and judgment
bad to be used. The deposits were
large and with some reductions on the
present costs of operating they could
he worked at a good profit. As it was
tlie mines here had to ba worked lu
competition with the mines in all
other parts of the world where living
expenses wore less, labor cheaper, aud
markets nearer.
Since his return from England he
had heard of the reduction made by
tho smelters in their rates, and at
llrst had beon of the opinion that it
was a "gift of the Greeks" but had
ocen more than pleased to find that lt
was perfectly correct. In his opinion
it shuwod that the smelters must have
received Bome reductions in rates from
���be railways and also from the ooal
company to be able to make tho reduction. This betokened a Bpirit of
wishing to Improve the present con-
illtiun of the mining Industry on the
part of those mentlonod that was
plcasnt to aee and presages well. If
other concessions oould be made on
similar lines to this there would be
great rovival of the mining   industry.
An far as the mines in which his
company were Interested were coo
oerned, they would continue going
steadily ahead with the development
ol tbem, and as soou as conditions
Improved enough thoy would be worked on a large scale. At the Poorman-
"ranite work was progressing satls-
'���ctorily and it was probable that tho
work of sinking the shaft wopld be
let out by oontract until the shaft is
completed. The price of lead is still
too low to admit ot the Highland
mino at AinBworth boing worked, and
therefore only development work
would bo proceeded with at present.
Mr.   Woakns   reached     New   York
���evcral  days   aftor   the  exploalor  in
whicb J. Roderick Robertson lost his
life, and visited the Murray Hill hotel
which had already beon rendered
habitable again and was accommodating 200 guests. Several of the partitions had been shifted and the
interior badly Wrecked but all the
corner which had sustained the worst
shock of the explosion had been put
in shape again. Mr. Woakes expressed
himself vory feelingly as to the great
Iobs the Kootenays bad experienced in
the death ot Mr. Robertson, and said
tnat it would be felt greatly here. In
Now York publio fooling was veiy
strong against those responsible for
the disaster, and much sympathy was
cxpressod for the family of Mr.

Smith Curtis Does Not Think Martin
Will Be the Permanent Leader.
Smith Curtis, M. L.A, for Rossland
district, was a passenger from the east
last night, but did not remain over in
Nelson. Mr. Curtis has been in the
east for some months, and it is understood that he has been successful m
interesting capital in some of his
mining ventures. On this pcint Mr.
Curtis did not enter into any lengthy
discussion but it was plainly observable that he was well satisfied with the
result of his visit. Speaking of the
political situation, the member for
Rossland district did not conceal his
dissatisfaction at the result of the
Vanconver convention. Liko many
other Liberals,he is inclined to regard
Mr.Martin as a leader only of a Bmall
section of that party, and tbat he
would not long enjoy the doubtful
honor oonferrod upon him by his
handful of followers. The popularity
of Mr. Martin with the men who
voted him into olliee, Mr. Curtis believed, was due to the evident inclination of certain Victorians to deny the
more populous districts on the mainland the representation to wbich they
are entitled. In this connection, Mr.
Curtis pointB out that he has for some
time past warned the island people of
tbe evil consequences that were sure
to result from fhoir short-sighted
policy. Mr. Martin can never hope
to gain a following on the island, but
he is likely to develop a certain
amount of strength on the mainland,
but not sufficient to cause any lasting
Injury to the Liberal party. Mr.
Curtis, it is understood, believes the
Dunsmuir government will tall immediately on the meeting of the Legisla<
ture, and will loave at once for tbe
ooast to be in time to assist in tbe
political obsequies of Mr. Dunsmuir
and his cabinet.

Application Involving   the   Inspection
of Books ol Trade Unions.
In   chambers  before   his   lordship,
Mr. Justice Martin, yesterday the following matters were taken up.
Poison vs. Heaman and others���This
is an adverse action and had never
been entered on the cause list of the
court prior to tbe present sitting.
Last December during thc sitting of
thc court ut Nelson the defendants applied to strike off the case for want
of prosecution and obtained an order
from the chief justice in the following
words: 'It is ordered that the plaintiff do set down tbis ease for trial at
the ensuing sitting of this court to be
holden at thc City ot Nelson in the
month of February next and do proceed with tho trial of this action at
the said sittings, or in default of so
doing tbis action do stand dismissed
with costs." Following the said order
the plaintiff do set the case dawn for
trial on the causa list and gave notice
on February .'stn of so doing, but did
not file the usual ten days notice of
trial, contending that the order moved
abovo was a waiver by the defendant
of notice of trial, and as the plaintiff
iterally complied with the order no
objecticn could be taken. The defendants took out a summons returnable
yesterday morning to have the action
truck off the cause list, because no
notice of trial had been given on tbe
original motion. Hia lordship expressed the opinion that the case was
a vory exceptional ono and none of
the authorities quoted by the defendants could apply. He dismissed the
pplication ot tho defendants with
custs payable to the plaintiff in any
event. C.W. MoAnn for the defendant,
S. S, Taylor for plaintiff.
Centre Star vs. Rossland Miner's
Union and others���The plaintiffs
applied to compel the union and other
defendants, among them so-called
unions, to produce their minute books,
charters and various other documents
for the inspection of the plaintiffs,
also that the defendants who have not
yet filed affidavits of discovery be
ordered to do so forthwith. The application was granted so far as the
filing ot affidavits were concerned, but
refused as to production of documents
mentioned above. Costs to the plaintiff in any event. A. C. Gait for
plaintiff, S. 8. Taylor for defendant,
this appication will give rise to several applications in the near future
as to the rights of plaintiffs to compel
inspection of documents of Trades
unions. If granted it might go to tbe
extent of affecting all secret societies
and will tbeiefore be stroDgly contested when it arises.
Fraser vs. Davis���A suit for assessment work amounting in all to about
$1,300. The defendant applied to postpone the cafo on the ground of absence ol material witnesses. The application was granted by tho usual
order, making ail costs of the application and of tlio postponement, including witnesses' fees' and costs of the
plaintiff inak'ental to the postponement to the plaintiff in any event.
