Washington, Dec. 3. -The message opens with n brief survey of
the growing strength and increasing
power for good of republic institutions and American liberty at the
outgoing of the old and ihe incoming ol the new century. The Chinese problem is made Ihe dominant
question in the foreign intercourse
and an elaborate review is made of
the details of military operations
and diplomatic steps taken in the
progress of settlement up to the
present time.
In the event of a protracted divergence of views in the Chinese
negotiations, the president favorably inclines to Russia's suggestion
that the matter of indemnity be relegated to the court of arbitration at
The Hague.
Uncertainty is expressed as to the
prospects of the well-nigh extinguished German trade.
The settlement ot the Samoan
problem has accomplished good results.
The friendly relations with Great
Britain continues. The war in
South Africa introduced important
and vexatious questions.
Appropriate representations resulted in the British government
agreeing to purchase outright all
goods seized showed to be the
actual property of American citizens, thus closing ti incident to
the satisfaction of the immediately
interested parties.
The modus vivendi in Alaska
boundary matters, has so far worked without friction, and the Dominion government has provided rules
and regulations for securing to our
citizens the benefit of stipulations.
It is at best but an unsatisfactory
makeshift, which should not be
suffered to delay the speedy and
complete establishment of a frontier
line to which we are entitled under
the Russo-American treaty for the
cession of Alaska.
We await tha fulfilment of promises by the sultan to make reparations for the injuries suffered by
American citizens in Armenia,
The financial operations by tbe
government during the year are reviewed in detail. Immediate action
is urged as a measure to promo'e
American shipping and foreign trade
TI.e president calls attention to
combinations ol capital organized into trusts, and he repeats Ihe
language of his   previous message.

The Toronto papers publish long
accounts of tbe Centre Star meet-
ng last week, and take the view
that another step has been made
the recovery of the mining industry of Canada, in the resumption of dividends by this company.
Is Luc Mr. Uooderliaui NhIiI
Among other things the president
of the company said "The chief
hope for reduction in the cost ol
mining lay in the adoption of the
contract system, which the Miner's
union had heretofore, by an overwhelming majority, refused to allow, although at the same time
the cost of mining has been steadily increasing. Under these circumstances, which had existed from the
lirst, and which everybody understood, it was made clear to us
by our new manager, Mr. F. B.
Kirby, that the time had arrived
when we ought to attempt to materially reduce the cost of mining,
and by increasing our ore reserve
and equipment, obtain better smelting rates. To accomplish these objects it was imperatively necces-
sary to close down the mine.
The labor unions have by a large
majority, accepted the contract
system; ^and our relations with
labor, wh'ch a year ago were a
menace to the peace and welfare
of the camp, have become established on an amicable basis; and
our costs of mining have been reduced at least   30 per cent."
Low liradr Or<* lsallalie
Vice president, T. G. Blackstock
justified the closing down of the
mine because by that means better
labor conditions bad been obtained,
and these enabled the management
to reduce the cost of operations.
He quoted figures of the manager
to show that the actual cost ol
mining in the War Kagle averaged
$2.20 per ton last month, as
against $3.95 for the year ending
September 30, and tbat tbe total
cost of production last month was
$3.25 per ton against $5.20 the
past year. This means a reduction
of about 45 per eent. This reduction of course greatly increased the
possible output of the mine, by
in aking a vast amount of lower
ijrade avaiable.
■larllUKlun'k Heporl
"From a  letter  dated    Oct, 23,
"(c) The Centre Star is improving in depth. Tbe fourth level is
opening out a very tine body of ore
11 the west, and on both sides of
tqe fault, which broke up tbe third
|evel' while the fifth level 175 feel
deeper, has broken into a fine body
of ore, where the station is just
being cut at the shall'. 'Ibis new-
level should be entirely free trom
lhe fault in the west end, and
great thing are expected of it.
Although I have been through the
Le Roi mine, and have seen tne
stopes 100 feel wide, I must still
hold to my belief that the Centre
Star will yet prove the biggest mine
in the Rossland camp."
iMlirrsllna   Figure*
The financial statement for the
year shows $238,000 paid for min
ing and development, $11,500 for
diamond drilling, legal expences
exceed $33,0001 The net proceeds
from ore sales were $3511,000. The
second dividend of $35,000 will be
paid January 1.

shall be punished by the Chinese in
a manner acceptable to the powers,
or that the terms of the note sball

The socialistic doctrine of public
utilities for the public good was the
most prominent feature of Tuesday
evening's meeting. There, was no
doubting the temper of the assemblage, which placed itself on record
as opposed to private ownership of
public franchises for speculative purposes. A live and energetic company
would spend a lar»e sum of money
in the town in installing waterworks
iind electricity, both light and motive, but the citizens feel that if outsiders consider the prospective franchise a. safe investment, it certainly
must be a goad thing for tlie town.
A strong protest will be entered
against the water right being gram
cd to the company, yet there should
be no dog-in-the-manger business
about it. If the right be denied the
company, then the citizens should nl
•once secure it for themselves and put
in a service, lt is a gm. I thing to
believe in public ownership, but bo
lief should give way to practice.
Incorporation has again conic to
-the front, as a result of the attempt
being made to Instal waterworks
here. It came before the public
meeting Tuesday niebt and a res■>
lution was passed to proceed with the
scheme at once. A Btrong committee
was appoint! d to raise tbe necessary
funds and i;ct things In shape for the
proper legal Btop to be taken, bo it
looks as if the 20th century would
find .Slocan a city indeed. It has
'been ascertained that the assessed
valuo ofthe town, under tho g ivern
ment register, is in excess of $100,*
003, and this will bo largely augmented when the building season ro
opens In the spring. The number ol
business houses and hotels have also
increased, giving an estimated revenue fully one fifth greater than that
figured on three months ago. Back
of the town arc resources sufficiently
demonstrated to warrant tlie citlz, ns
taking the advanced step In contemplation, and internal necessities demand that something be done, to ob
tain funds to meet these requirements. Tin; town will grow and es
pand and Its expansion should be
encouraged by the public spirit "of its
citizens. Public Improvements will
entice population and stimulate bus!
ness, to the extent oi malting this the
chief commertlal and residential cen |
tro of the Slocan country, Many
thing* have io be done, and more or
■less friction expected nnd overcome,
ere the municipal Wheels revolve
smoothly, bill a decisive action in so
curing Incorporation is more than
half the battle.   The cltizon   Blum Id
