No. %tr<  TXi  ft    L  IL       LLi  f  V  Dominion government may be successful and that''the present duty of fi viper cent may be al least quadrupled.  Greenwood Man in Montreal-  Conservation of tlie Canadian Market Sought  by   Canadian   Interests���Increased   Duty  Will do It.  ���The lead' supply of Canada today is  hot beyond the market demand for tlie  same could'that market which naturally belongs to it be conserved to tlie  home producer. At present the low-  duty on manufactured*lead exposes tlie  Canadian market to raid from without.  The request to be made of the government that such duty be.increased to it  parity with that imposed on' similar  classes of goods is not unreasonable.  No pari of Canada feels more the effect  of protected goods than the mining-'  regions of British Columbia. Nearly  everything'.!t uses is protected to a  greater or lesser degree and nothing  that it produces-is similarly helped. It  buys in a protected andsells iu an unprotected market.  All that the lead producers .ask'.is  that the-duty be so increased on manufactured lead products that the home  market may be open to them. This  done they claim that the consumer will  pay no more than now for white* and  red leads, etc., and tlie miuing and  smelting ititerects will be helped to  the extent of the home demand.  There appears no valid reason why  home mines and home smelters and  home refineries should not have home  markets. .'' T^iey cannot get into,* the  American market because of a practically prohibitive tariff. If they cannot have .access to the American  market why may they not have the  Canadian. It is not a question so  much of biyli tariff as it is a question  as Mr, fcliarllon said speaking, on  another matter recently in. the House  of Commons of "self-protection."  "Wc trust Uiat the committee recent  ly appointed by the Associated Boards  of Trade  to lay this matter before the  Percy F. Godenrath the whilom  versatile newspaper correspondent at  Greenwood is at present in Montreal  endeavoring to attract the attention of  homeseekers to the beautiful Kettle  Kiver valley. "Own a piece of the  Earth" is his sententious advice to; the  easterner as expressed in the title of a  handsome pamphlet just issued by him  a copy of which lies on our desk.  The pamphlet contains in addition  to descriptive matter and figures on  small, intensified -farming, some very  fine illustrations, among others a view  of the Covert farm between Columbia  and Carson, and the Granby and  Greenwood smelters, i We wish: Mr,  Godenrath success in his mission..

THE KASLO CONVENTION.  govern ment can afford to pledge the  country's future and use its credit for  its development.  One of the boards recommendations  we trust the government will particularly observe however and that is  permission to do work on roads or  trails, instead of assessment work,  where the claim holders so desire.. We  may say that we believe the work of  the convention generally good, the  above excepted.  NOT SO SLOW.  PIONEERS TAKE BOIICE.  Owing to the unavoidable absence of  the secretary and treasurer of Kettle  River and South Okanagan Pioneer  Society and consequent oversight in  sending out notices for the meeting to  have taken place at Grand Forks on  Saturday next, March 1st, the meeting  is hereby postponed. The next regular  meeting* will be held at Grand Forks  on Monday, Sept. 1st, next.  Thos. McAui.ky, President.  The meeting of the Associated  Boards of Trade of eastern British  Columbia held in Kaslo last week-was  considered ai; unqualified success ..by  those present who had attended every:  session of the association since its,  inception.*. The fourth session was  marked by courtesy, good fellowship,1  moderation and strict attention to  business. The reception of the delegates by the people of Kaslo was warm  and hearty and the arrangements made  by the local board of the most complete and sitis factory character. A  banquet in the Kaslo hotel ou Thursday evening relieved the routine of  work and afforded a display of genuine  'fe.lowship un marred by anything to  which the most fastidious could take  exception. The officers elected for the  current year were G. O. Buchanan,  president, and H.. W. C. Jackson, secy.-.  treas. Every question put on the  notice paper was promptly brought up  and friends and opponents of every  measure discussed the same with unvarying- good nature even though the  argument grew intense at times.  The recommendations on- the lead  question not only re-aflirm6d the  bounty application but asked that the  duty on manufactured white lead  should be increased from 5 to 25 per  cent in order if possible to conserve  the home market* ior home producers.  On this and other matters a committee  of three was appointed to confer with  the Dominion government.  Resolutions wore passed asking for a  member of the provincial parliament  for the Boundary, and for one for the  commons for that part of Yale-Koot-  enay west of the Columbia river.  The most radical action of the board  was found in its resolution regarding  ___.^H_r_s_s__nenj::���wp_rk_.on  The board was asking the government  to reduce mining taxation and royalties awl thought it opportune to suggest means by which such decreased  revenues might be fairly offset. The  belief of the convention was that if the  g-overnment enforced collection of  taxes now chargeable against crown-  granted claims and for claims not  granted reduced the yearly assessment  to $90, say, of which S10 should be in  cash, the income from the mining  sections would be" not only increased  'but the burden be more equitably distributed. While we share in a degree  in the justice of the contention and  believe it will reinedj' the evil of undue  claim holding and bogus- assessments  yet it will if cirrierl into effect work  great hardship on many prospectors.  The argument used that prospectors  who were not in  position  to  pay  this  The American people are wont to  complain that we are too slow up here  in B. C. They have, evidently not  read the following from, the advertisement of the Mt. Hamilton Land and  Oil company in the the Province newspaper of Vancouver.    _:  "We sold a portion of the company's  holdings at Coal in ga to . a Chicago  syndicate and they are going to begin  at once to erect an oil refinery at an  expense of Forty Million Dollars (340,-  000,000). Plant will be completed inside of 90 or 100 days."  The company that can begin at once  and complete inside 100 days a Forty  Million plant must certainly be a  "gusher". Men .will be standing  around pretty thick to .work up an  average of S400,000 a'day. To a poor  man it seems as if the promoters are  using figures rather carelessly, We  beg to submit that the company pull  off some of those figures or else lengthen out the time for erection. Anyway, isn't the plant going to be a trifle  large ?   .....'..*.  Corporation ol the City ot Greenwood.  NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN tliat a Court  ol Revision for tlie City of Greenwood, 13. C,  on.

We quote from the Nelson Miner  some facts regarding trout fishing recently brought out at a discussion in  the Nelson fishing club, tor the infor-  otour-readers -who delight in angling.  " Some discussion took place as to  what could be done toward the protection of the fish in the lakes and  streamsof the interior, and W.H.-Bullock- Webstar, of the provincal police,  who was present, made some valuable  suggestions, being thoroughly conversant with the regulations as they now  stand. He pointed out that under the  present regulations, which are those  of the Dominion g-overnment, it was  not* contrary to law to patch trout at  any season of the year, the provincial  game act not having provided for these  fish. After discussion ii was resolved  to instruct the secretary to write to  W. A. Galliher, member for the riding,  to ask him to use his influence to have  the order-in-council of March 3rd,  1894, making fishing regulations forthe  province of British Columbia, aiiu-nded  so as to provide a close season for  charr, rainbow trout and bind locked  salmon.  ] MR.
