PRAISES THE TIMES  Eastern   Newspaper  Men   Are   Impressed With the Appearance of  the Greenwood Paper-  The opinions of others, especially when they can speak with  authority, are always interesting.  A newspaper publisher as well as  any one in other lines of business  is always interested in what  others in the same line think of  his paper. The Times this week  reproduces extracts from two  letters received from experienced  newspaper men. The first is  fromtheeditor-in-chief of one-of  the leading* papers in Western  Ontario, while the other is from  a newspaper man in Manitoba.  The editor of the Stratford  Herald says: "I must compliment you on the handsome appearance of your paper, copy of  which just recently arrived. It  is highly creditable to the people  of Greenwood and I hope you  will meet with the best of success there. Yours very truly,  '��� W. S. Dingman."  .  The other correspondent was  also most favorably impressed  and he says : "I am sure I have  never before seeu a country sheet  put out ou such fine paper. The  type, als_. looked well set. I  read it all with much interest."  NDELL  FURNISHINGS  The plant of the Vancouver Portland  Cement Co., near Victoria. B. C, is to  be enlarged so as to bring the capacitj*  up to 1,200 barrels a day. Since the  establishment of these works foreign  cement has been almost entirely displaced in British Columbia, and the  men'behind the enterprise are looking  forward to a busy season next year.  They have organized another company  to operate in Calgary, known as the  Alberta Portland Cement company,  and expect to have everything in readiness to begin manufacturing next  summer. The projected capacity of  this plant will be 1,800 barrels a day.  The regular monthly meeting of the  Greenwood Curling club will be held  in the club rooms on Monday evening  next at 8 o'clock.  BOARD   OF  TRADE  Freight  Committee   Have  Been at Work  THE   POWER    QUESTION  A . Well  Attended  Meeting  Adopts  Resolution and Sends Delegate to Cranbrook.  Since its reorganization a week ago,  the Board of Trade has shown remarkable activity; TheCcommittee, including the president, W. T. Hunter, G.  Naden, C. H. Fair, and the secretary,  appointed to secure statistics that  would be a factor in inducing the G.  N. R. to build their line, into Greenwood.  On Tuesday a well-attended meeting  of the board was held in G. N. Naden's  office, when the question of the West  Kootenay Power company's bill, now  before the B. C. legislature for an extension of their territory was discussed.  At that meeting the following resolution was passed and G. R. Naden appointed o delegate to attend the annual meeting of the Associated Boards  of Trade in Cranbrook this week and  prasent the resolution there. The  resolution reads. "Whereas, this Board  has learned that the West Kootenay  Power and Light Company, 'imited.  are applying to the British Columbia  legislature for an amendment to their  act of incorporation permitting the  said company to supply oower the  mines and smelters in the district of  Yale; a  And" Whereas there"is now no source  from ^which an adequate supply of  power can be obtained in the district  of Yale for the efficient working of the  mines and smelters in the Boundary  district ;  And Wheteas the proportion of ore  in the Boundary district has increased  vastly in the years 1904 and 1905, and  the production for the year 1946 promises to exceed very largely the production of any preceding year;  And Whereas the West Kootenay  Power and Light company, limited,  are in a position to supply power on a  very extensive scale to the mines and  smelters in tthe Boundary district;  Be it therefore resolved that this  board support the application of fhe  -West Kootenay-Power-and-Light company, limited, for an amendment to  its act of incorporation and urge the  immediate passage of an act amending the act of incorporation of the  company so as to permit it to do business in the district of Yale.  It was further decided to raise $100  to defray the expenses of the delegate  and to pay the board's fee as member  of the Associated Boards of Trade.  The secretary was appointed to attend to this work and succeeded in  securing the amount by payment of  membership fees. There is found to  be a > sincere and unanimous desire  among the leading business men to  make the board a live institution and  a credit to ihe city.  GRAND   MASTER'S   VISIT  Distinguished Official Meets Local  Lodge men and Says Many  Nice Things. ���  I. O. O. F. Grand Master D. McKenzie visited the local lodge Wednesday night and was entertained in the  lodge rooms, About forty members  were present and listened with deep  interest to the excellent address given  by Mr. McKenzie. The grand master  expressed himself as most thoroughly  pleased with progress of past year and  complimented the members for their  faithful devotion to their lodge and  for the excellent manner in which the  work had been carried on. He had  visited many lodges during his trip  and he had found many in a prosperous and healthy condition but he had  found none more so than that of Greenwood. He was especially pleased with  the efficient manner iu which the  records of the order had been kept and  was especially pleased with the splendid balance sheet just issued.  I^After the formal part of the session  closed a tasty supper was served and  an hour of social enjoyment closed a  year of highly usuccessful work. The  grand master came to Greenwood from  Trail and left the next day for Grand  Forks. Before leaving he was entertained by several prominent citizens  who took pains to show him the natural  advantages and wealth of Greenwood.  FELL SEVENTY-FIVE FEET  Fatal Accident on Kootenay Power  Plant.  Nelson, Feb. 1.���A fatal accident  occurred Tussday at the upper Bonnington falls, when Karing Ciaoski, a  native of Galicia, Austria, fell 75feet  to his death at the site of the plant of  the West Kootenay Power and Light  company. Cisoski was. working on a  derrick -about 3 o'clock in tbe afternoon, when he missed his footing on  the west cliff and fell 75 feet to the  solid rock in the wheel pit below. He -  was conveyed to the Kootenay Lake  hospital in a C. P* R. Caboose and. he  was attended by Dr. Hawkey of this  city. Upon examination it was found  that more than half of the bones in  his body were broken and that he had .  suffered six compound fractures as  well as internal injuries. For sixteen  hours he survived the* shock but during that time he was conscious only;a ,  few minutes. He died at- 7 o'clock  Wednesday morning. He is believed  to have a brother in'Alaska; but otherwise nothing if known of his relatives,  JEFERY-GREG0RY.  ��� W. H. Jeffery of Greenwood and .  Mrs. M. Gregory" of San.

A SPEEDY TRIAL-  Ernest Larmeau, stage driver for J.  F. Royer, was committed by justices  of the peace W. H. Norris and J. R.  Ferguson of Midway, on the information of Royer that he had stolen $46,  collected by him for stage fees. The  accused elected a-.speedy trial before  Judge Clement of Grand Forks and  was acquitted without any evidence  being taken for the defence.  MIDWAY NEWS.  Midway, Jan. SI?���Rev. Mr. Hale of  the M. E. church, Chesaw, held the  first Sabbath service in the history of  the town of Ferry last Sunday. This  was a mission service and considerable interest is being taken in the attempt   to   provide   regular   meetings.  The attendance was about thirty-  five. No attempt will be made to  erect a church building at the present  time, but it is felt by the best citizens  that at least the nucleus of a church  should be maintained. A suitable  building has been secured and Mr.  Hale will hold services as often as  possible.  A Valentine Tea will be given by  the ladies of the Presbyterian church,  in the church, on Wednesday, Feb. 14,  from 5 to 8.    Admission 50 cents. BOUNDARY CREEK TIMES.  i-i.  PROFESSIONAL CARDS.

MORE POWER WANTED  The West Kootenay Power and  Light company, who are enlarging their plant at Bonnington  Fails, and who are prepared to  supply the mines and smelters oi  the Boundaiy with adequate  power, are applying to the provincial legislature for the necessary authority to~do_bu"sines~s"in  the County of Yale. The application is ��� being opposed by the  Cascade Power and Light company who are operating a plant  on Kettle river near Cascade.  Both these companies were incorporated in 1887 by the provincial legislature, which restricted the territory in which  they could do business, the West  Kootenay Power company having a radius o! 50 miles from the  city* of Rossland as its territory,  and the Cascade company a radius  of 40 miles from the City of Grand  Forks. At that time there had  been but little development in  the Boundary andit was thought  that sufficient power could be  harnessed at Cascade to meet all  the requirements of the industries that might be established  within the territory of the company. The development of the  Boundary has been so rapid, however, that the most serious menace to the mining and smelting  industries is the lack of power-  There is not sufficient power at  Cascade to meet the present requirements of the Boundary and  these requirements are rapidly  increasing. Steam plants must  sometimes be. used at.nheavy additional expense, and during low  water the situation is such as  should not be continued for a  single moment longer than is  absolutely  necessary to bring in  power from a source -that will insure these allied and important  industries against a repetition of  past conditions that have militated against operating properly  and have discouraged further development. ���  The duty of the legislature is  plain. The mining and sme1 ting  interests should receive first con-  consideration and any enactment  which will bring relief to these  industries should be passed without delay.  MR.    SHEARER'S   LETTER.  Elsewhere we publish in this  issue a letter from Rev. J. G.  Shearer, secretary of the Lord's  Day Alliauce. Mr. Shearer  makes a good defence of the legislation proposed by the L. D. A.  but his arguments are not  strengthened by imputing motives  to the editor of the Nelson News.  Even in the matter of the proper  observance of the Lord's Day  there can be honest differences of  opinion and it is rather surprising to find a gentleman of Mr.  Shearer's experience and training  making the suggestion that the  editor of the News' mn-t have^a  selfish object in view in publishing a letter from another clergyman protesting against the proposed ��� legislation and favorably  commenting thereon.  CANADIANS    IN    ENGLISH  POLITICS.  Aside from the general satisfaction that prevails ' regarding  the change in English politics  there is for Canadians reason for  congratulation in the fact that at  least two prominent natives of  ,the Dominion will occupy  seats in the next British parliament. Sir - Gilbert Parker has  been returned member for Graves-  end, and Harmar Greenwood in  the ancient city of York. Sir  Gilbert Parker was born in the  Province of Ontario 46 years ago.  He was educated in Toronto and  received his early training in life  while contributing to the daily  papers. He afterwards removed  to Australia and later on to England where he engaged in literary  work and from his pen has come  some vivid pictures and most interesting stories of French Canadian life. He frequently visits  his native land and was last in  Canada during the inauguration  ceremonies at Edmonton and Regina last autumn. Of that epoch  making event he wrote a most  interesting article for the Canadian Magazine. Sir Gilbert is a  man of whom all Canada might  well be proud, for the interests of  the whole Dominion, lay near to  his heart and in that august assemblage of British statesmen he  may be depended upon to safeguard [the best interests of his  native laud as well as to intelligently influence the affairs of the  empire. .  Another Canadian whose record  in Canadian politics will be remembered from days gone by is  the Hon: Edward Blake. For  years he has sat among the  statesmen of Britain and so  thoroughly has he won their confidence as well as  the confidence  and loyalty of his Irish constituents that he has been returned by  acclamation.  There are eight other Canadians .still before, the electors for  choice and it is safe ' to say that  before this reBches our readers  some of them will have been  added to the Canadian strength  iu the British house.  TUNNEL DRIVING.  There appeared in the last issue  of the Mining Reporter an editorial on the legal side of the  question of tunnel driving which  we reproduce-:  "Within the past year a number of suits have been filed in different states to secure the right  to drive a tunnel across property  not owned or controlled by the  tunnel-driving company. By a  decision recently handed down in  a Colorado case by the supreme  court of that state, a precedent  has been established and the  right to run such tunnels granted.  The effect on the mining industry  must in the end be beneficial.  While no doubt some cases will  arise in. which injustice will be  done, we believe that in the majority of cases the proceeding  will be bona fide aud will not  react to the injury of the owner  of the ground through which the  tunnel passes. Changes in the  methods of mining, as well as the  necessities of the case in certain  very mountainous camps, have  dictated the advantage and  economy of carrying on operations through tunnels, and the  privilege . of running these  through ground intervening between the, site of the mouth of  the tunnel and the property to be  worked should scarcely*" be withheld.  ���'Senator Clark has recently introduced a bill into congress in  which it is proposed to legalize  the running of such tunnels. The  bill will doubtless also provide  for the adjustment of disputes  that may arise, such as the ownership of blind leads, the status of  the tunnel company as a common  carrier, etc. The proposition  will doubtless meet with some  objection, but in the last analysis  we believe it w ill be a progressive  step."    .   Premiek McBride and Finance  Minister Tatlow have published  a joint defence of their attitude  withregarcrto "the"Midway and  Vernon railway. Pending the  result of the legislation dealing  with this matter which has been  introduced in the local house.  We do not intend discussing the  statement of the two ministers.  In the event of such legislation  not succeeding there are incidents  connected with this important  enterprise which should be made  public and which will show that  the two ministers are not the innocents 'they are so laborously  trying to prove themselves.  In coke manufacture in beehive  ovens a careful manager will fre-  vuently point up the masonry in the  front and end walls. Cracks around  the oven doors and in the walls cause  much waste of coal, inasmuch as air  finds its way through them and causes  a complete combustion of the carbon.  This will be indicated by the presence  of ashes near the doors or walls.

W. Thompson and was first published in the Winnipeg Free Press, 'i  is especially valuable for its review of  this -.province's demands" for' better  termsfrbm the Dominion government;  for the growi.jg need for a railway  running from the southern boundary  to the Yukon, opening up rich valleys  andfor tlie wide advertising British  Columbia will receive.  ���  After    a   lshOrt ' introduction    Mi*.  Thompson proceeds :  ���      '���' '  "Vancouver is a solid,   handsome.  boominci city of ( 40,000 people,  prospering by Asiatic trade,,and a& round-  the-Horn importers of goods for prairie  consumption.   Victoria is a beautiful  pleasure 'city', yearly  more attractive  to  American  tourists.   It is   run' on  the plan  of letting  the  various  professionally vicious elements do as they  please,/all'-by-" themselves,  with some  occasional     aid    from    the    casually  vicious, and ftom visitors possessing a  Parkhurstiau   thirst  for  information.  The police and c^ty fathers draw, "However, a Japanese line  between professional vic.e,and crime. .Tha mot d'ordre'  is,   'No robbery,  no violence;   impropriety *��� jiiukt be quiet and ' ostensibly  decent; if it openly offends'"the  good,.  or even  the "respectable..'.,'- it will be  hauled up and sternly punished.'   This.  resembles the imputed Tammany ideal  of civic  government.   That  it  works  out well is alleged by {reputable church-  going Victorians     The citv is seemly,  especially' on. Sundays,  and   the congregations very  numerous.    Commercial   morality-  is   reported   excellent.  Seattle, where the 'wide  open' is  said  to be open much  more widely,  is''regarded by Victoria as rather  too-too,  and especially to be reprehended ��� because, the  Klondykers,  coming  down  coast for the winter with loads of 'dusi'  prefer it .as a place of congenial joys.  As Seattle is.to Portland, or to Boston,  in poibtof easy morality or immorality,  so  is  Victoria  to Halifax, or demure  Toronto. . It  is  patent   throughout   a  transcontinental    journey    of    many  stop-offs and  strenuous  enquiry, that,  speaking by  and large, the nearer we  approach to Asia, the easier, but possibly not the worse, does AngJo-Saxon-  dom grow : in  morals.   Respectability  as it westernizes is not less apparently  respectable, but either more indifferent  - or more convinced ihat-the"bestfwaytO  deal with pitch is to leave it "untouched  so long as it does not conspicuously  overflow, smear nor assail the respe; -  taole. ���  " In Victoria the 'liberties' are ac  corded as freely to the numerous Chinese joints, as to those of Caucasian  establishment!'\Tohn smokes his opium  in daylight, if he chooses, in* back  rooms to which almost any visitor ma3r  penetrate. The proprietor leads the  way as unagitated as if he were about  to disclose something in silk or pottery.  An amiable: frequenter elaborately  prepares and smokes two or three pipes  just to illustrate how the thing is done.  'Alle same drinkee whiskey,' explains  the caterer as he bows the visitor out.  There. a^ie, - Victoria journalists'say,  Chinese .opium,?."tipplers, opium *t*ee-  totalers, opium- miderate takers, arid  opium drupkards, the latter very few.  The same observers confirm the allegation of the'British royal commission  on opium,< viz., that the smoking habit  is just about as deleterious to Orientals  as tthe alcohol habit Vto Caucasians.  "It appears that few, if any, of the  numerous Japanese of this coast consume the drug.? An employer of many  of them in mining declares that they  drink whiskey as freely, as white miners, that they gamble still more in  veterately and that they study hard  even while drinking, whenever they  are not gambling",- Working, eating or-  sleeping. That employer is Mr: John  Beaugarde Hdb'sOn, the eminent mining engineer, formerly of J California,  now managing director of the Cariboo  Consolidated" Hydraulic Mining Co., a  concern that stops work in winter because its high interior mountain  streams freeze solid. -He says;that  Japs at $2.50 a day are .worth as much  in his line as Chinamen at $1.75; that  **    t.K*'  the 'average European labor is comparatively worth about $2.75 and  Italian worth a little more. He rates  the Italian laborer as. fully equal to  the Scandinavian. But the average  Irishman has no peer among average  laborers of other nationalities found  numerously west. Still, all these peo  pie are errant, fleeting, given to roaming, apt to disorganize-cne's,plans.  That is. why Mr. Hobsori* means to import a lot of French-Canadians, the  most tractable of-'able-bodied men, who  fetch in theii* households or get family  establishments.about .them as., soon as  they feel secure of prolonged jobs, cultivate gardens, keep cows, raise hens,  and, speaking generally, plant that  fixed foot which is giving Jean Bap-  tiste firm possession of vast tracts of  this'continent.

A close  friend of this human oasis told me  Hobson, had recently killed a grizzly  with a Mauser pistol. The tir-st shot  hit Bruin, who was just meditating  whether he would attack or amble  away, a .little aside from the- heart for  which it was intended. Bruin then  decided on assault. The second bullet  hit him' near the eye, which caused  him to rear up and come on speedily.  The third went through his neek from  the throat. The fourth, at ten paces,  reached his heart, and he fell down.

''Ou the voad west one is frequently  told  that  British  Columbians  do  not  'call   themselves   Canadians,  and that  many of them even reject the  imputed  distinction,  as   Southerners   rebel   at  being called Yankees,   Here one leains  that to be far from true. A small class,  similar  to  that   found  everywhere  in  Canada, and  everywhere of declining  influence, simply because its-members  range  themselves   rather  as   English  than   as  Canadian*,   is   strongly  entrenched in Victoria,    But -"he masses,  so    frays    Senator    Templeman,    the  ''father of Liberalism  on   the Pacific  cua.-.t," are Canadian in sentiment.    It  does   not  follow,   though   the  senator  would not acknowledge  this, that they  will   long    remain   Liberal,   and   aid  British Columbia   to   return' as  in the  last Dominion   elections, a unanimous  Liberal    representation    to     Ottawa.  Among   Liberals  as   well   as  among  Conservatives  and   non-part)*   men,   a  sedulous enquirer notes  hete a general  sense   that   British   Columbia  is   not  treated by the  Dominion   gouernment  with a due sense of   the  benefits  that  might accrue to Canada from liberally  assisting���the���exploitation-of- a���domain so vast, and  of such  potentialities of wealth.    This feeling is not unlikely to cause  a  political  turnover at  the next   elections,   unless Sir Wilfrid  Laurier proves as  alert  as  usual, and  as   amenable  to  reasonable local  demands..? The   problem  of   aiding   development in British Columbia is complicated  by  the  perennial  demand of  the  Provincial  government for'better  terms.'    All  the   Canadian  provincial  governments are Oliver Twists in crying for 'more.'    They are all supposed  to  be'subsidized   from  the Dominion  treasury on   a  uniform  basis.     They  unite, except the new provinces of Alberta aud Saskatchewan, in a  general  demand foi 'better terms.'   But British  Columbia also  demands special treatment, i. e., more than any  other province in proportion to population.    This  apparently   unreasonable request does  not seem a bit so on examination. The  argument is under several   heads. One  is that   British. Columbians pay to the  Dominion   treasury   much    more   per  head,  in   customs   and   excise   duties,'  than:  Canadians   of   other provinces.  Another is that the province gets back  by   way.  of    Dominion    expenditures  much less than any  other, proportionately   to  what   its  people  pay in.    A  third is that the topography of British  Columbia,   a mountainous country 700  miles  north   to  sonth,   and  400   miles  east to west, is such that roads, bridges,  local   roadways, schools, asylums, and  all   the  services   which  the  Canadian  .system  casts   ou   provincial- govern-  ' ments, are vastly more expensive here  than-ilsewhereinthe Dominion^ Again,  the mining industry   is  so  prevalent,  and   it   maintains  so   high  a  rate of  wages that all  manner of  public services are made uncommonly expensive,  such facts are  already   recognizee by  Sir Wilfrid's administration in respect  of certain federal salaries, as, for instance, those of judges in the Yukon  and some other remote districts, who  get higher pay and allowances than  -judges in Old Cmad'a. If that is just  and reasonable, why should the*necessities of the pceilliarly situated province  not be similarly'responded to ?  "The 'reply".is-from' consideration,  not of the difficulties'of government in  British Columbia, but ���'���from the difficulty of federal government at Ottawa.  There-are 'now nine Canadian provinces. They'aare'iii a federal union'on  an agreed basis. If one province wei**e  treated with special consideration the  others might, or certainly would, kick.

"Oh, yes, the British Columbian replies, but special consideration was  properly given when arranging- the  financial tennis on which the new  province* of Alberta, and Saskatchewan came in. Other analagous cases  can be cited from the* somewhat remote  paat. Why, then, should British Columbia not be dealt with more liberally, especially as the province cannot  hope to develop largely, any of the  aorta of protected manufactures which  enhance local prosperity in Ontario,  Quebec,- the Maritime, provinces, and  even in Manitoba? So great are the  difficulties of British Columbia provincial administration here that Mr.  Green, a member, of the local government, in reply to my remark that the  province needed, agricultural popula-  tian, and that this should be gained by  directing* immigration to th*: province  (because a numerous agricultural population would cheapen supplies and  also provide a strong, reserve of labor  for alining) replied that immigrants  are coming in, faster than , roads,  bridges schools, and the other conveniences that his government is  called on to supply, can be provided.  So here is a country of resources simply  prodigious���probably the richest province, by nature, in the. Dominion���  which does not, like all the rest of  Canada, crave immigration 1 iThe  case certainly requires most serious  consideration at Ottawa.  " Still, the difficulty of, disturbing ~.n  British Columbia interests the general  federal agreement may be insupei>  able, : It seems reasonable to suppose  that a general scaling up of; subsidies  to provinces may come of considering  that the union was made with no expectation that the revenues of the  federal government would increase so'  disproportionately as has happened,  in comparison with the revenues of the  provinces'.' But British ' Columbia's  share in any possible general scaling  up would "but slightly' alleviate the  situation of this province, Its progress would still be retaidet? for lack  ofjsufficient provincial funds to provide copy-sciences for all who would,  doubtless, come to share its mild climate and boundlessi prospects if well.  informed of ���J.tn'em by the usual methods  of the energsticVDominion .minister of  the interior.  " Instead of pleading the direct interests of British Columbia,, thoseof  the Dominion might better be argued  from by those who ask for either larger  federal expenditures here, or direct  payment of more money to the province.  Surely it would be greatly beneficial  to all: Canada, and especially to the  prairie people, to Ontario and Quebec,  if British .Columbia were aa thickly  populated "as possible. Why ? Because, the cost of lumber, the prime  necessities on the prairies, and the  fruit, almost as much a plains' need,  would   be  cheapened  by settling   the  Canada. That need is eloselY analagous to the need which caused Sir John  A. Macdonald to connect British Columbia with Old Canada by subsidizing the C. P. R. In the earlier  years of the Laurier administration  the importance, in the largest political  sense, of placing the farthest west of  all the Canadian provinces in rail connection with the east was recognized.  An attempt, baulked by the then Tory,  senate, was made to initiate the enterprise. Since the senate burked the  scheme it has not been reattempted.  One effect of lacking such a road is  that a large Yukon, trade, of which  Canadian dealers might enjoy the  profits, goes to Seattle and the States.  Now the easiest way to get the needed  Canadian railway soon to the Yukon  is apparently by way, of the great valley, 700 miles long, traversing northerly the interior of British Columbia.  ' "All explorers agree that the line  would be of easy grades, and not very  costly. The north end of such a railway would be within 500 miles of Dawson city. The link north of British  Columbia, to say nothing of the commercial value, would be commendable  purely for the. high political purpose of  rail connection with the gold country.  The British Columbia section would  open up many rich valleys, and many  mines of copper, silver, gold, lead,  zinc, coal, and, indeed, all manner of  valuable minerals. Connection with  such a north and south main line  would be easy for projected lines in the  other great valleys of British Columbia, all of which run nearly north and  south, and all of which are credibly reported to joinby low easy passes. The  main line would crpss all the four existent  orrsooh-to-be-completed   Cana-  ��� * ������       . : '. ;' ���:. ��� ��� '���:.'��� '*        .      ��� ,   ���  dian transcontinental; railways, viz.,  the National Transcontinental, or  Grand Trunk Pacific, the Canadian  Northern and the.two, transcontinental  roads of the C. P. R. It wouid serve  iheinterests of all those east and west  lines. It would solve pretty much all  the,difficulties of mainland British^Co-  lumbia. By increasing? the bulk qf  western freights, and by bringing ney  lumbering and fruit regions to supply  the great plains, it would conduce.to  the interests of Canadians in general,  somewhat as the Crow's Nest Pass  railway has done. Hence it seems the  Ottawa government might well^.subsfc-  diae the scheme enough to secure its  construction."  ^ ..*?*,*. ....,..t*  ECONOMIC MINING HINTS-  cozSt~^ovince71^fich~in^^  in fruit-growing lands. Because the  general, freight rates, and especially  the wheat rate, could be lowered on  the transcontinental railways if British Coliinjbia freights were va.stly  heavier.? Because the' manufacturers  of OntMioiand Quebec, whose commercial travelers now flock throughout this province, and who must, by  effect of the Canadian tariff, ever  largely provide 'for British Columbia  wants, would gain hugely by the  presence of a large population here.  In short, it seems of nearly as much  importance to the Canadian east that  British Columbia should be populated  as that of Ontario and Quebec should  be, and of quite as much importance  as that the provinces of the great  plains should be. If so, then the  special situation of this province ought  to be dealt with as a federal problem.  SHOULD BK  A  NORTH   AND SOTJTH HAIL-  WA\\  " The Dominion ministry has assured the people,, of Alberta and Saskatchewan that the federal policy of  aiding colonization roads wherever  federal interests may seem to> require  them, will not be departed from there.  Application of the same doctrine to  British Columbia would end some of  the more formidable difficulties of  British Columbia's gbverninont. Thus  many fertile valleys, which cannot be  brought into cultivation , without long  colonization highways, might be populated. But the best solution would be  a comprehensive application of the  Laurier government's policy of aiding  railways, for these would bring many  rich valleys-and mines within easy  reach of such short highways as the  provincial government could afford.  " There is high state need for a  railway, connecting the Yukon   with  tha.n had been calculated and hence  the margin , of profit in treatment  eliminated. Then a wire from the  source that a breakage of machinery  had occurred (owing to an original defect in installation). And so on  through the category of details of delinquency in the management, the  confipeuce of those who thought, from  a personal examination, that everything was all right, was gradually  sapped, and they came to the conclu  sion that if, with such a showing of  ore and such an equipment, success  could not be obtained, mining was indeed an uncertain investment.  WHERE CANADA LEADS THE WORLD  Canada has the largest continuous  wheat field in the world.  Canada produces the finest wheat in  the!world, No. 1 Manitoba hard setting  theworld's standard.  Canada's average wheat yield per  acre.for ten years was the greatest on  the-American continent.  Canada leads the world in dairy exports.  Canada's trade in ten years has increased more rapidly than any other  country in the world.  Canada has the most valuable white  pine; forests on the American continent.  Canada has the most valuable nickel  deposits in the world.  Canada has the greatest wood pulp  forests in the world.*  . Canada has. the greatest, system of  fresh: water navigation in the world.  Canada has a greater water power  than any other country in the world.���  The National Monthly.  If Canada could lead the world in  good.government; in schools, libraries,  and in the quality, fulness, and happiness of the life lived by all her people,  that would count for more than all  else put together.    ,  Lead ores are reduced exclusively by  fire, of in the dry way, as it is sometimes, called. The smelting operation  is carried on in three forms of furnaces, viz., reverberatory, hearth and  blast|fumaces. These three methods  have their advantages and disadvantages. The first two mentioned re-  quire-tich ore and skilled labor. The  third mentioned method is by far the  most common and best adapted to the  general fun of ores.  In the last jssue of the Mining. World  P.A. Lenord cdeals with several important phases of the mining industry;  in a manner that is of interest to the  stocRholder' the pper*ator and the era  pioyee. After an introductory paragraph, which points, put, that mining  is not to be regarded as a wild, speculative or sure- to-get--rich-quick enterprise, but rather,, as a purely business  proposition, the article proceeds:  ���' The nearer one ? approaches the  purely business or economic side of  mining the more attractive it becqme.s  to the capitalist, who is willing at all  times to take a fair businesd .risk in  ItifjH iWelitmlenO  erly  managed, to  become a  dividend  payer.  . "Given as. an abstract problem on  twhich a successful operation may be  hypothetically baWed, it: is no trouble  o lay down in exact figures, approximate results that can be secured, with  proper management, from the operation of a mine.  "For example, I have in mind a  gold and silver property in which  large ore shoots have been opened of a  payable grade and on which a mill has  been erected, operating by a paocess by  which it has been proved that a profitable recovery and extraction of the  gold and silver content can be made.  If the mill were run continuously to  its full capacity a dividend can be  earned of at leatt 10 per cent, a year on  the full capital stock of the company^  or $150,000.     .,  "But though the mill has been constructed more than eighteen months  no dividends have been earned and  constant cslls are made to secure new  machinery, repair defective parts or to  meet the regular monthly payroll.  "Thequestion puzzling the stockholders, many of whom are tine business men, but are unfamiliar with  mining, is why, with an abundance ot  ore and the other conditions named,  better results are not obtained.  Some of�� them have even journeyed  to the mines and soent weeks watching  the details of development and equipment, and became so euthused that  they would go back home and borrow  money to increase their holdings.  Just about the time that everything  seemed "lovely" and they were expecting the report of a shipment of bullion  representing thousands of dollars, the  superintendent, would notify them  that the grade of ore had been lower  The .board of Trade ,of St. John,  N.B., are actively interesting themselves in securing new industries for  that city*,���*..*; After a lengthy discussion  they, recently passed a resolutic-n in  favor,of ten years' exemption for new  concerns, and, .hope ttiereby tc secure  some of the United States branch;  plants ���being, established in Canada.

C-  the tiepty of the General  Secrit^ry.  MR.    SHEARER'S   VIEWS  Thinks British Columbia Is. Behind  the Times���Quotes the  Effete East.  As an answer to the, editorial com-  menta of the. Nelson News on hia last  let-ter, Rev. J; G. Shearer, genen 1 secretary of the Lord's Day .Alliance, haa  isstied 'trie following statement which  we publish at his request:  To the Editor Thr News, Nelson :  Friends in Kootenay have sent me  clippings from the News of recent  dates in which yotf editorially attack  the Lord's Day Alliance and its proposed'Dominion legislation. It is my  practice not to impute motives, but it  makes a very large call on charity to  believe that sucVi niisrepresentations  as have of late appeared in the News  editorials are one and all to be charged  simply to ignorance.  Kindly, in fairness, permit the correction of some of your most glaring  misstatements. '  1. "The poor man, who cannot afford to keep a carriage, will be debarred (by the passage of the said act)  from giving his family cheap outing  by car, steamboat or train,"Land again  it "would deprive working people of  the only" opportunities they- now-enjoy  of spending a few hours in God's out-  of-doors." These barefaced misstatements are made in the same  issue, I understand, in which the draft  act itself is printed, incredible and  impossible though this seems: *  Now, what does' this proposed' act  say? Clause I prohibits on Sunday  "any one to do or employ* any other  personto do on that day any' work,  labor or business except as' herein provided." Clause II excepts from this  prohibition "any work of necessity or  mercy," and enumerates'.certain sorts  of work which-it expressly declares  shall be considered "works of necessity or mercy. Amon& these (subsection 5) specified exceptions is "the  conveying of travelers," Are not  ^'travelers" people who ' are conveyed  by car, ��� train, or steamer, or otherwise ? Yet the editor of the Nelson  Daily News, with '* these' words under  his eyes, publicly pens the* statement  that by the enactment of the measure  these wicked Lord's Day Alliance people are asking for, the "poor man will  be debarred from giving his family a  cheap outing by cai, steamboat or  train." Is'this a fair sample of the  intelligence and fairness of the Daily  News?  SUNDAY SERVICES-  Presbyterian���St. Columba, Rev.  M. D. Mckee, pastor. Services 11 a.  m. and 7:30 p. m.; Sunday school 2:30  p. m.  Methodist���Rev. H: S. Hastings,  pastor. Services at 11 a. in. and 7:30  p. m ; Sunday school, 2:30 p. m.  Anglican���St. Jude's. Rev. John  Leech Porter, B. D , pastor Services  at 11 a. rn? and 7.30 p. ni ; Sunday  school, 2:30 p. m.   All seats free,   And should-'''ou-take cover under the  assumption that "travelers" means  only those going on �� a long journey,  I need only remind yon of the famous  English ale house decision which  governs in Canada, and which held  that any one going a distance of thiee  miles is a traveler, and the still more  conclusive decision of Judge Rose in  the Hamilton Street Railway case,  which held that a man going from his  house to church' a few blocks away is a'  traveler. Absolutely the only limitation the proposed act places upon travel  of any kind by any mode' of'conveyance is when clause 5 prohibits "excursions for pleasure." This means,  of course, gotten-up excursions of a  public character, accompanied as they  almost invariably are by clamor,  carousal, and often still worse things.  Is it not enough that people should  be able to go where they please on  Sunday in regular cars, trains or  steamers in a quiet, orderly way ?  2. Again you say, "it will be unlawful to hire a boat,. a buggy or a  horse" on Sunday, In the light of  what I have said in answer to the for-  imer misstatement, I need scarcely add  a wprd in answer to this. AH that is  conveyed by the exception * work of  necessity or mercy" as these words*  have been interpreted by our courts  again and again.  3. Again you say, "to go fishing or  shooting on Sunday is to commit a  criminal offense" under the proposed  law. Absolutely nothing is said about  fishing as a sport. Clause II prohibits  the business of fishing, as all other  businesses. This is now prohibited by  other laws. It surely ought to be prohibited as auy ..other business���in the  interest of the employees concrned,  that they be protected against being  robbed of their rest-day rights. "Shoot  ingat any target, mark, or other object" is prohibited. This is aimed at  rifle and gun practice on Sunday, An  editor, unless he be a lawyer, might  not know that it is a recognized canon  of legal interpretation that where a  number of things are specified and  there then follows words of universal  import, the universal words are to be  limited in their application to things  ejusdem generis (of the same class)  with those specified just before. In  the above clause, therefore, "other objects" would only include other marks  or targets such as glass balls or tame  given liberty to be practiced on  pigeons, or the like. These words  would not apply to wild creatures  hunted in the woods or field. The  game of British Columbia, and all the  rest of Canada, except Quebec and the  Island of Vancouver ind in the British  islands, is now protected on Sunday  by the game or other valid law. In  British Columbia it is the Sunday Observance law. This is in force only  on the mainland.  Mr. Justice Martin ��� of the supreme  court only recently, as reported in the  Vancouver World, earnestly advocated  ''in order lo prevent cruelty to animals" the making Sunday a "close  season" throughout British Columbia,  and the S. P. C. A. adopted a strong  resolution asking the government to  so legislate? That is the one day when  crowds of irresponsible youths go out,  gun in hand, to slaughter the creatures  of the wild, and to imperil human life���  their'own'and others.  The L. D. A. agrees with Mr. Justice  Martin and the S. P. C. A. that Sunday ought to be a "close season" and  British Columbia is somewhat behind  the times in not having it so. But  our proposed Lord's Day act does not  so provide.  You also, Mr. Editor, raise the question of why the h. D. A. does not  leave the regulation and protection of  Sunday to the provinces and municipalities. In answer I would only say  that we would most gladly do so had  not the judicial committee of the privy  council held (contrary to our counsel's  contention) that the jurisdiction to  legislate on this question lies with the  Dominion and not with the provinces,  and if not with the provinces, of  course not with the municipalities.  The eastern papers are criticising  our measure as being "over broad,"  for example,* the Hamillon Herald,  which has never had a reputation for  narrowness. The fact is the measure  is as broad as the reasonable protection of the toilers in the enjoyment of  their rest-day rights will permit. And  all we'aslc for it is a fair field and no  favor. The,Roman Catholic and Anglican archbishops are known by all to  take a very broad view of what is permissible on Sunday. They are one  and all strongly supporting the L. D.  A. in seeking the enactment of the  law in question.1 So also are the Dominion Trades and Labor congress  and the great mass of labor men. Why  not tht Daily News also ? Is it afraid  for its own Sunday edition ? If so,  why not saj so, and fight fair ?  J.' G.
