As a result  of  the stagnation of the
mining indu-tiy and the taxing of tin*
industry to-dealli by our government
the big mining companies nf Rossland
have been force I to post the following
notice addressed to their employees:
"Il being a matter of common report
that u certain element in the Ron-land
Miners' union is insisting upon Ibe
abrogation of the settlement that was
entered into n year ago at ihe instance
of Messrs. R. O, Chile and Ralph Smith,
we think it only right to all concerned
that we should state at the eailiest
Opportunity offi red, that if any nctinn is
taken by tlie Miners' union tookini! to a
change in the existing labor conditions
in thia camp, we, the undersigned, will
have HO alternative but to clone down
our minea and re-opeu only under a reduced eesle of waijes
"The accumulating burdens Ibat Iisvp
have neen imposed upon the mining
industry in tbis province are already
heavy to bear, and if these burdens sre
increased it will be impossible to operate
these mini sou a business basis.
"We have been struggling for a long
time past io put these mines on a paying
b.isi.-, nnd have been devising all mannei
of ways nnd means forthe accomplishment of this end without resorting to
the reduction of wsges.
"Conseqiien^.v. any further trouble or
expense to iin> companies at this time
will leave no alternative but to abandon
our efforts to tnaintsin wages at the old
slandurd, and we will be compelled to
adopt tbe long considered plan ol reducing miners' wages to $3. per day,
and muckers snd unskilled surface labor
to*2 per day.

Why Some Nines are Failures.
The London Mining Journal, in an article beaded "Quacks in Mining," gives
the foliowinir as sn example of bow some
Boards of Directors conduct their business. As to the effect ol such "management" upon the mines, we in tbe Slocan
do not have to lie told. It is too obvious
to require telling. "Some of ua bave
doubtless been present at these entertainments," says The Journal, apeaking
of board meetings, "when a series of well
dressed gentlemen rush in one after
another, exchange commonplaces, light
their cigarettes und proceed to business.
'Nothing new, Mr. Secretary? Well,the
manager's report, 1 voto that's taken as
read, pass on to the n"xt. A series of
letters. I say, you'll look inlo them,
there's a good fellow; important you say
never mind, they'll wait, I must catch
the 12 50. By jove, I must be off; see
yon all next week.' The chairman i
off and all the bu°iness is shunned. The
poor manager is left to shift for himself
and Inter on he will be badgered for not
bringing something or the other to tha
notice of the board earlier, thereby wasting precious time We are quoting now
from actual experience, which teaches us
that it is a rare thing to find a board take
an uctive and intelligent interest in tbe
business of a mining con-pany In aboit
they are quacks. Nor is tliij surprising
when one remembers that the half dozen
directors are prolmbly men absorbed in
in their own respective occupations, and
that the technicalities of minea, mining
reports anil plans are as so much Greek
to them- The fault lies in tbeir pretend"
ing to know and to be able to direct
when tbey are utterly ignorant and in-

General Frederick Funston, who on
March   23   captured   General   Emilio
Aguinaldo,  when   interviewed  by the
I representative of the Associated Press,
: made the following statement concern-
I ing the capture of the Filipino leader:
"The confidential agent of Aguinaldo
I arrived February 28 at Pantabangiiii.
, In the province of Nueva Ecija, north-
, em Luzon, with letters dated January
11, 12 and 14.   These lettei'sswere from
Emlllo Aguinaldo, and directed Baldo-
mero Aguinaldo to take command of
the provinces of central Luzon, supplementing General Alejaudrlno.   Enillio
Aguinaldo also ordered that 400 men
be sent him at once, saying that the
bearer of the letters would guide these
men to where Aguinaldo was."
General Funptoh secured the correspondence of Agulnaldo's agent and
laid his plans accordingly. Some
months previously he had captured
the camp of the insurgent general, Lacuna, incidentally obtaining Lacuna's
seal, his papers and a quantity of signed correspondence. From this material
two letters were constructed, ostensibly
from Lacuna to Aguinaldo. One of
these contained Information as to the
progress of tue war. The other assorted that pursuant to orders received
from Baldomero Aguinaldo, Lacuna
was sending his best company to Presi-
dente Emilio Aguinaldo.
His plans completed and approved,
General Funston came to Manila and
organized his expedition, selecting 78
Maccabebes, all of whom spoke Taga-
log fluently. Twenty wore Insurgent
uniforms and the others the dress of
Filipino laborers. This Maccabebe
company, armed with 50 Mausers, eight
Remingtons and 10 Krag-Jorgensons,
was commanded by Captain Russell T.
Hazzard of the Eleventh United States
volunteer cavalary. With him was his
brother, both boys from Tacoma, Washington, of the same regiment. Captain
Harry W. Newton, Thirty-fourth Infantry, because of his familiarity with
Sasiguau bay, and Lieutenant Burton
J. Mitchell, Fortieth infantry, went as
General Funston's aides. These were
the only Americans accompanying the
leader of the expedition. With the
Maccabebes were four ex-Insurgent officers, one being a Spaniard and the
other three Tagalos, whom General
Funston trusted implicitly.
General Funston and the officers
wore plain blue shirts and khawl trousers. Each carried a half blanket, but
wore no Insignia of rank. The Maccabebes were carefully instructed to obey
the orders of the four insurgent officers
On the night of March 8 the pany
embarked on the United States gunboat Vicksburg. It was originally intended to take cascoes from the Island
of Polillo and drift to the mainland,
but a Btorm arose and three of the cascoes were lost. This plan was abandoned. At 2 a. m. March 14 the Vicksburg put her lights out and ran in
shore 25 miles south of Caslguran,
province of Principle. The party landed and marched to Casiguran. The
Americans had never garrisoned this
place, and the inhabitants are strong
insurgent sympathizers. Having arrived there, the ex-Insurgent officers,
ostensibly commanding the party, announced that they were on the way to
Join Aguinaldo; that they had surprised an American surveying party
and that they had killed a number, capturing flve. They exhibited General
Funston and the other Americans as
their prisoners.
The Insurgent presidente of Caslguran believed the story. Two of the Lacuna letter?, previously concocted, were
forwarded to Aguinaldo at Palanan,
province of Isabella. General Funston
and the others were k."pt Imprisoned
for three days, surreptitiously giving
orders at night.
On the morning of March 17, taking
a small quantity of cracked corn, the
party started on a 90-mlle march to
Palanan. The country ls rough and
uninhabited/and. provisions could not
be secured. Tho party ate small shellfish, hut were almost starved. Wading
swift rlvei'B, climbing precipitous
mountains nnd dense jungles, they
marched seven days and nights, and
on March 22 had reached a point eight
miles from Palanan. They were now
so weak that It was necessary to send
to Agulnaldo's camp for food. Aguinaldo dispatched supplies and directed
that the American prisoners be kindly
treated but not allowed to enter the
town. On the morning of March 23 the
advance was resumed. The column was
met by the staff officers-of Aguinaldo
and a detachment of Agulnaldo's bodyguard, which was expected to take
charge of the Americans. While one
of the ex-insurgent officers conversed
with Agulnaldo's aide, another, a Span-
lard, sent a courier to warn General
Funston and the rest, who, with 11
Maccabebes, was about an hour behind.
Having recelvedi, this warning General
Punfcton avoided Agulnaldo's detachment and joined the column, avoiding
observation. The Tagalos went ahead
to greet Aguinaldo, and the column
slowly followed, arriving finally at
Agiilnn.ldo'8 household troopR, 50
men, In neat uniforms of blue and
white and wearing straw hats, lined up
in receive the newcomers.
Gonoral Funston h men crossed the
river In small boats, formed on tho
bank and marched to the right and
then In front, of the Insurgent grenadiers. The Tagalos entered the house
where Aguinaldo was.
Suddenly the Spanish offleer, noticing that Aguinaldo s aide wbb watching
the Americans suspiciously, exclaimed:
'•Now, Maccabebes, .go for them."
The Maccabebes opened fire, but their
aim wns rather ineffective and only
three Insurgents were killed. The
rebels returned the fire. On hearing
the firing Aguinaldo, who evidently
thought his men were merely celebrating the arrival of reinforcements, ran
to the window and shouted: "Stop that
foolishness; quit wasting ammunition."
Hilarlo Placido, one of the Tagalo
officers and a former insurgent major,
who was wounded in the lung by the
fire of the Kansas regiment at tho bat-
I tie of Calooean, threw his arms around
I Aguinaldo, exclaiming:    "You   are   a
prisoner of the Americans."
j Colonel Simeon Villia, Agulnaldo's
i chief of staff, Major Alambra and oth-
1 ers attacked the men who were holding
i Aguinaldo. Placido shot Villia ln thc
; shoulder. Alambra jumped out of the
'■ window and attempted to cross tho
[ river. It Is supposed that he was
; drowned. Five other insurgent officers
I fought for a few minutes and then Hod,
i making their escape.
I When the firing began General Fun-
I ston assumed command and directed
I the attack on the house, personally as-
; sisting in the capture of Aguinaldo.
The Insurgent bodyguard fled, having
; 20 rifles. Santiago Barcelona, the ln-
1 surgent treasurer, surrendered wlth-
j out resistance.
When captured Aguinaldo was tre-
; mendously excited, but he calmed
; down under General Funston's assur-
' ance that he would be well treated.
General Funston secured all of Agulnaldo's correspondence, showing that he
had kept in close touch with the sub-
chiefs of the Insurrection ln all parts
of the archipelago. It was also discovered that Aguinaldo, January 28, had
proclaimed himself dictator. He had
been living at Palanan for seven
months undisturbed except when a detachment of the Sixteenth Infantry
visited the town. On that occasion the
entire population took to the mountains and remained there until the
troops retired.
Aguinaldo admitted that he had
come near to being captured before,
but he asserted that he had never been
wounded, adding: "I should never had
been taken except by strategy. I was
completely deceived by Lacuna's forged
He feared he might be sent to Guam,
and he was quite glad to come to Manila. Palanan "wds guarded by numerous outposts and signal stations. During' the flght none of the Maccabebes
was wounded.
The expedition rested March 24. and
then marched 16 miles the following
day to Palanan bay, where General
Funston found the Vicksburg, which
brought him to Manila. Commander
Parry of the Vicksburg rendered General Funston splendid assistance.
Aguinaldo. who talked freely of past
events, said he supposed General Trias
would proclaim himself dictator, even
not knowing that Trias had surrendered. He behaved courteously and
gave no trouble.
General Funston says Aguinaldo li
above the average in intelligence and
hns prepossessing manners.

Peter McCormick came in from Sheridan camp the first of last week. He
brought with him sacks of ore that
were taken from his Phil Sheridan
claim. He had flve samples assayed,
with the following result: No. 1,
$134.60; No. 2, $287.50; No. 3, $455.34;
No. 4, $157.44. The fifth sample was
taken from a section of the footwall
and showed a total value of $5.SO. The
ore is a combination of silver, gold and
copper. While silver is the predominant metal the others were no mean
factors In the total values. According
to the assay certificate the gold values
ranged from $13 to 41 per ton, while
the coppper values were from $1.75 to
$17 per ton.

room is a small compartment adjoining
the magazine. The heat was intense,
the smoke suffocating and the flames
difficult to extinguish. Lieutenant.
Commander Roper was the first to descend Into the hoid, but he was forced
to return to the deck. Others then
went down. Seaman Patrick Toner was
prostrated and about to perish when
Lieutenant Commander Roper endeavored to rescue him and was suffocated
in the attempt. Lieutenant Joslah
Stutts McKean and Cadet Lewis suffered severely In bringing the body of
Lieutenant Commander Roper to the
Twenty-two of the crew were prostrated, Evans, Flaherty, Larsen, Kess-
ler, Tony, Cahey, Burton, Smith, Sullivan and Forsboon seriously, but all will
recover. The contents of the sailroom
were destroyed, but the damage to the
gunboat was slight,. The origin of the
fire has not been ascertained. Possibly
it, was a case of spontaneous combustion.. The death of Lieutenant Commander Roper Is greatly deplored. His
body will be spent to the United States

Scandal at Manila.
Manila, April 1.—Interest in the capture and fate of Aguinaldo is well nigh
overshadowed in Manila by sensational
developments, present and prospective,
of frauds in the commissary department. How widely these extend has
uot yet been ascertained, but enough
is already known to Justify the belief
that they are fa/ reaching.
Captain Frederick J. Barrows of the
Thirtieth volunteer infantry, quartermaster of the department of southern ,
Luzon, together with several commis- j
sary sergeants, several civilian clerks,
a prominent government contractor,
the assistant manager of the Hotel
Orient, the proprietors of three of the
largest bakeries in Manila, a number
of storekeepers and other persons have
been arrested. The Investigation has
scarcely begun, but thousands of sacks
of flour, a quantity of bncon and wagon
loads of other gooos all bearing government marks have been found in the
possession of unauthorized persons.
It is alleged that the contractor ln
person, who has been doing a business
approximating $100,000 a month, has
spent huge sums in entertaining officers.
A prominent commissary officer is i
accused of leading a scandalously Im- ■
moral life. It Is asserted that large
quantities of stores have been lost or
stolen In transit and also that there Is
a shortage in the commissary depot.
New scandals are developed daily.
Illicit transactions have been traced
back to June, 1900. and it is possible
there are others of earlier date. Tue
exorbitant tarilT on provisions makes
the surreptitious sale of commissary
supplies immensely profitable. It is
understood that prominent officers of
the United Stntes army may be arrested.
Lieutenant P. K. Street of the Forty-
sixth volunteer Infantry is prosecuting
the investigation under direction of
Colonel Wilbur, chief of police.

The Lands and Works Department
ot our Government is sadly out of
touch with this p.rtion of our Province and in spite of the fact thnt in
this camp a latge amount of money
has been expended by private enterprise in the building of roads aud
trails and the opening up of shipping
mines, which has res-ulitd in the payment of much taxes and royalties into
the Government coffers, tho Department has done absolutely nothing in
tbe district for the laat three years.
Of our shipping mines thero is not one
which has not paid in royalties ou the
ore shipped by it more than the
Government has expended altogether.
Tbe system under wh:ch our taxes are
collected and expended is simply
rotten ar.d it is no wonder that our
mines, which are being bled to deathi
are shutting down and that capital is
being withdrawn from the Province
for investment in Idaho ar.d Wash
ington. Tbe stupidity or it-justice
shown towards portions of our Province by this Department is such
that all fair minded men are losing
faith in British fair play. Instances
can be cited where the Government
has expended thousands of dollars
building roads to boom property for
political favorites and wasted on roads
that were never us-d, while mines
with ore to ship have bad to build
their own roads or shut down, lu
this district less than $1000 has been
expended by the Government in roads
and trails in the last three years and
uot one foot ot new ro ul or trails has
been built by it,. To ofFiet tins, our
iniues, struggling with all kinds of
restrictions and taxes, have tried to go
uhead aud ship out their ores to the
smelters, three of our mines during
that time having built more roads
than all the Government roads in the
whole district, and when they haul
their ores down over these the Government stands with outstretched
hand asking for its royalties, as a tax
upon the enterprise of these individuals. Tbis portion of the Province
asks for no favors but simply for
justice at the hands of the Government)
which by its shortsighted policy
appear to be striving to drive out
what little capital we have here out of
the country and make tho Blocan once
more a quiet retreat for the Siwash.

To make the population six million,
the census takers wili havo to find
1,166,761 more people here than there
were 10 years auo, representing a gain
of 2-1 per cent. The last decades have

Oeneral Kitchener's terms in regard
to wages, which he attaches to his
permission for resumption of work on
certain of tho Rand mines, is meeting
with considerable opposition on the
part of the miners and mine-owners.
As the foreign miners and mine-owners
in that country were the principal
cause that led to the war in South
Africa it is no more than right that
they should stand tbeir share of tlie
grief. There is no use of their starting
to whimper now for the mines will be
made to pay a proportion of the expense incurred aud the miners m-iy
look for a put in wages ta their   share
The Trade Budget iiifaUts that. we
favor the exportation of local ores to
American smelter* for treatment. Why
we should favor such-a course and
when we ever did so it does not say
but it is news to us. Now, The Sn, -
vkutonian does uo such thing, but because wb fail to see the benefit of an
export duty on lead ores us our Coast
friend sees it we are blamed for it just
the ssme.
Tbe Trade Budget seems to think
that if more lead stacks were in operation iu the Province the load of the
lead miner would be lessened. This
shows that the Trade Budget is not
familiar with its subject, as its surges
tion of a smelter for Silverton led us to
suspect once before. The editor munt
know that the pro lucts of our smnkers
must go to the Uuited States' refineries before being marketed, and as long
as this is thu case, Canadian smelter
can only give the American rate. At
the present time the situation is; the
local smelteN cannot handle our ore,
the American smelters will not. What
are we to do? "Put on an export duty,''
shouts the Trade Budget, forgetting
that it is because we cannot export we
are in our present dilemma.
The true solution is in the establishment of a refinery to handle the
bullion, Then the smelters can do business without depending upon foreign
refineries. Even in that case we doubt
the expediency of an export duty a*
long a« tho Government was bonuain ■
the refinery and tho United States was
charging an import duty on lead. Surely that would be protection enough.
A protected industry always tskes advantage up to the limit and the protection shiulil not be overd ine
The worst feature of the export duty
talk at present is its effect on capital
Capital is already timid of the Slocan
and nny further experimental legislation or a discussion of it will increase
the alarm. J.et us work tor the rt-li.i-
ery and when we are in a position to
do so without harming ourselves we
:au ihi'-li mil the export du'y question,    'fo do so nqw is idjocjr.
