OF LOCAL
HOUSE OP OOMMON/3
Serious Statement Made by Official to
the Effect That  Escape of Train
Robber Was Nothing But a
Fake Affair
There was a scene at the House
of Commons last Friday when J.D.
Taylor,M.P., of New Westminster,
brought up the subject of Bill Miner's escape, and the threatened
disclosures of ex-Deputy Warden
Bourke. A committee of investigation will be appointed by the
government.
The   Daily  Province   publishes
the following statement of Miner's
escape from the New Westminster
penitentiary,   made by  an official
who is in a position to know :
"At the time of the investigation
into the escape,   made  by Inspector
Dawson, I could  have  told,   had  I
been called upon to testify, that Bill
Miner did not escape from prison by
c-awling   under the  fence  through
the hole through which it was alleged he went.    No man ever crawled
through that hole for two good reasons.    The first was that the hole was
not large enowgh.; the  second,   because the hole was made only tor the
purpose of covering the  letting out
of Miner.     The story of the loss of
fifty thousand dollars' worth of bonds
or money by the C.P.R. or any one
else in the robdery, and that it  had
been cached by Miner, was an invention iu the  interests of  the robber
himself.    No one ever lost that sum;
no bonds were ever stolen.    Miner's
friends   from  the  outside called on
him and conducted fake negotiations
for his  so-called  escape and the securing of the cached money.     Certain persons made it possible for Miner to escape, apparently on the understanding that he would divide up the
booty.     These  facts can   easily   be
proven if the government makes an
investigation."
It was decided to apply to the government agent at Nicola to take the necessary steps for the election pf three fire
wardens in this place.
Communications were read by Secretary Menzies from a Vancouver firm re
fire-fighting apparatus. It is the intention to secure an engine and hose as
soon as possible and investigation wil*
be made into these matters immediately.
The subscription committee reported
progress, and will continue with the
good work.
The committee in charge of the dance
for St. Patrick's night are making preparations for a big time.

EDITORIAL NOTES.
The Vancouver World denies the
rumor that Duncan Ross has bought
a third interest in that newspaper,
and declares the World has never
been offered for sale to Duncan
Ross or anyone else. This is probably quite true���election time always excepted.
Among other things, there is a
splendid opening in Merritt for a
first-class drug, book and stationery
store. Such an institution has long
been needed and would draw a patronage for miles and miles around.
Besides drugs, there is always a
varied selection of miscellaneous
articles kept in stock almost exclusively at drug emporiums for which
the people of the valley must now
send out of town. If a lady wishes
a special brand of perfume, a powder '"rag" or a "rat" for her pompadour, she is put to the trouble
and extra cost of sending to Kamloops or Vancouver or to Uncle Tim
Eaton, with always the chance of
getting the wrong article or a substitution. Merritt is geographically and commercially the hub of the
valley,with a rapidly growing population, which, even now, would
adequately support a general drug
and book store. There will be big
money for the man who first gets
a foothold in this branch of business in Merritt.
No authentic word can be obtained as to the date when the C.P.R.
will extend the Nicola branch up
the Coldwater route from Merritt,
although all sorts of rumors are
floating around. The Summerland
Review says that the southern
terminus of the extension is likely
to be at that town, on account of
the lake being liable to freeze at
Penticton. We are not bothered
at this end, however, about the
terminus. What we want to see is
construction work begun. But
then great bodies, like delinquent
subscribers, move slowly.
Since Bill Miner has been thrown
into the limelight once more, over
the threatened disclosure of facts
connected with his "escape" from
New Westminster penitentiary, the
notorious bandit has suddenly acquired the mysterious power of
omnipresence. He is "known" to
have been at Salem, Ore., on the
11th inst., and, according to a dispatch, was "seen" at Woodstock,
Ont., two days later. Hey, Bill,
quit yer kiddin' !
Bob Edwards has been turned
down in his efforts to have the Calgary Eye Opener readmitted to the
mails. And yet the Eye Opener is
a moral reform tract compared with
the Winning Post, Pink 'Un and
other English smut-sheets which
are allowed to circulate freely by
the Canadian postoffice authorities.
The whole secret of this unjust
discrimination lies in the fact that
the Eye Opener frequently tells the
plain truth about those who sit in
high places in Canadian politics.
A disease known as "women's
suffrage" has beeh epidemic in
England for some time, and now
we find a germ of it permeating the
tranquil political ozone of British
Columbia. It is but a bubble, however, that will swell up and burst,
like many another that has emanated from the blow-pipe which seems
to be working scab hours in the
acrobatic brain of one J. H. Haw-
thornthwaite, the Socialist from
Nanaimo. Mr. H. is always advancing some bug-house proposition instead of looking after the
needs of his constituents. If the
member from Nanaimo wishes to
cut some ice with the ladies of B.
C. he had better charge his think-
tank with another brand of dope.
The vast majority of the women of
this province do not want to vote
at provincial elections, or any other
old elections. Not one in a hundred would take advantage of the
franchise were it given them tomorrow; nor do they care a continental dingbat for Mr. Hawthornth-
waite and his hobby-horse ideas.
The women of British Columbia are
in no wise similarly situated as the
fanatical females of a congested and
half-starved London. They are
too busy rearing young Canucks,
keeping their house in order and
assisting hubby to establish a comfortable home in this province of
plenty and prosperity, to rack their
brains over the intricacies of party
politics. In other words, it is not
in their line of business, and they
have sufficient common-sense to
appreciate the fact.
It is gratifying to note that the
citizen-s of Merritt are working harmoniously together to establish an
efficient fire brigade, and are taking steps to secure the necessary
apparatus. It is none too early in
the game for the propagation of
such a laudable scheme, and the
precautions now being taken may
mean the saving of thousands of
dollars' worth of property at any
time.    Help the good work along!
A boost for the town in which
you live is a boost for your business
or occupation and your future welfare.    Any chump can knock.
Watch the progress of Merritt
and the valley of sunshine.

A new coal mine is being opened up
at South Wellington, near Nanaimo.
Cobalt, the big siver camp in Ontario,
has a payroll of $300,000 a month.
Owing to the deep snow and the cold
waather, drilling for oil in the Flathead
valley has ceased for the winter.
The New Republic has shipped a car
of ore to the Granby smelter which was
worth $2,800.
Princeton board of trade is considering ways and means for placing a mineral exhibit at the A.-Y.-P. exposition.
The Kingston group, near Hedley, is
giving out 540 ore. Operations will be
conducted on an extensive scale this
year.
All the property of the Sullivan comp'
any at Marysville has been siezed by the
sheriff on behalf of the Crows Nest Pass
Coal company.
A busy season is forcasted for mining
properties in Kamloops vicinity. Owners of the Iron Ma^k say the erection of
a smelter next year is inevitable.
A large hydraulic plant, costing $35,-
000, will be placed on Ruby creek, Atlin
district this yeav. Seattle and Boston
capitalists are behind the mine.
Rumor has beei. very persistent in
the Boundary during the past month to
the effect that the Canada Consolidated
Mining and Smelting company would
shortly take over the operation of the
Dominion Copper properties.
The largest copper mine, and in fact
the largest mine in the world, is the
Calumet and Ilecla, in the northern
peninsula of Michigan. This property
has paid in dividens over $100,000,000 on
a capitalization of two and a half, millions of dollars, and the $25 shares are
quoted at $625 to $675 each.
The Crows Nest Pass Coal company
are looking ahead towards doing a very
large amount of building in the near future. Just at present things in this respect are in an embryo state, but within a short time 1000 more coke ovens
will be built there and other improvements made that will put Fernie away
in the lead of other Kootenay cities.
Wm. M. Williams, familiarly known
among the miners as "Black Billy,"
one of the pioneer geld seekers of British Columbia, claims to have discovered
lode veins of platinum ore and gold bearing fissure veins of quartz rock in his
property in the Teaguegroup of claims
some thirty miles south of Hope, which,
when developed, will startle the world.
The total shipments of ore in the
Boundary and Kootenay districts for
the past week were 44,560 tons as
against 40,976 tons for the previous
week, showing an increase of 3500 tons.
The smelter receipts were in proportion. The Boundary shipments reached
36,359 tons. Rossland 5119 tons, Slocan
Kootenay 3091 tons. The smelter receipts were: Granby $24,941, B. C.
Copper $12,774, Consolidated $7399 and
Le Roi $536.
A Vancouver special says that Frederick W. Dewart, chairman of the legislative committe of the Spokane chamber of commerce, to which body has been
referred the matter of investigating the
advisability of removing the tariff on
coal from Canada, reports that this will
mean a saving of from $60,000 to $75,-
000 a year to Spokane. He gives a
number of reasons why British Columbia
coal should be ad.nitied free, chief of
which is its superior quality.
concerted action on the part of lumber
associations of eastern and western
Canada, and the object is to wipe out in
one fell stroke the grievances of the
past two years, which have reduced
the lumber industry���particularly in
British Columbia���to such a pass that
the manufacturers assert they are
losing money steadily and are on the
verge of collapse.

Get His Reward Soon.
A school teacher sends this composition by a little girl in the primary
grade of a public school. The composition is entitled "A Romance":
"Once there was a poor young man
who was in love with a rich girl whose
mother had a large candy store. The
poor young man wanted to marry the
candy lady's daughter, but he was too
poor to buy furniture. One day a bad
man offered him $25 to become a drunkard. The poor young man was dreadfully tempted because he wanted to be
rich enough to marry the candy lady's
daughter. But when he got to the saloon door with the bad man he said : 'I
will not break my pledge, even to be
rich. Get thee behind me, Satan! '
So he went home and on his way found
a pocket book with one hundred million
dollars in it. So he went and told the
candy lady's daughter and they were
married. They had a lovely wedding,
and the next day they had twins. Thus
we see that virtue is its own reward."
Following is the newly issued schedule between Nicola and Spences Bridge.
The Scab
In England the character of the
scab has been sharply defined. It is
reported that at a conspiracy trial the
prosecuting counsel gave the following definition of a scab: ' 'A scab is
to his trade what a traitor is to his
country, and though both ma}-be useful in troublesome times, they are
detested when peace returns, alike
by all. So when help is needed a
scab is the last to contribute assistance
and the first to grasp a benefit he
never labored to procure; he cares
only for himself, he sees not beyond
the extend *f a day, or for monetary
and worthless approbation he would
betray friends, family and country ;
in short, he is a traitor on a small
scale, who first sells the journeyman,
and is himself afterwards sold in his
turn by his employer, until at last he
is despised by both and deserted by
all. He is an enemy to himself, to
the present age and to posterity."
