'  Word -was received from Cork  this w^eek by Arthur Wheeler of The  Times, > that his father and mother,  Captain Arthur- Wheeler and Mrs.  Wheeler,'wereileaving- their old home in  the Rebel city en route for Greenwood  on June30+h next. It is their .intention to spend the remainder of their  lives with their son and his family in  British Columbia-  Though the captain irf'not by any  means a .young man, having spent  over fifty years at sea, thirty years of  which time he was skipper in the em*_  ploy of the City of Cork Steam Packet  company, both_he_and^Mrs. Wheeler  are enthusiastic tennis players and  have instructed their son to purchase  a suitable building bite, sufficiently  large to permit the laying out of a tennis lawn.  Mrs. Wheeler was in British Columbia two years ago and travelled as far  as White Horse, where another son,  Herbert, is assistant superintendent  in.the White Pass andYukon-company's  mail service department. Mrs. Wheeler  made the return journey alone, and  was s.0 much impressed with the magnificent climate, scenery and prosperous outlook for the western province,  that within 24 hours of her'arrival at  Victoria had decided to return and reside by or befoje 1906.  Captain Wheeler is selling dut all his  old country investments and will become as soon as possible an active  citizen of Canada.  Millinery tadUs- Rj��������sHats aU *  RBNDBLIv &�� CO  PRESENTATION   TO   MRS.   SCK0N.  On Saturday last the ladies of St.  Jude's guild assembled at the hall to  take leave of Mrs. Schon, who, with  Dr. Schon and family, has .since left  for Princeton to take up residence in  that growing burg. The object of the  gathering was to ask Mrs. Schon's acceptance of a slight token of the guild's  appreciation of the work Mrs. Schon  has rendered as president of the guild  during lhe,past two years and to wish  her every happiness in her new Cohere.  Vice-President Mrs. J. T. Williams  read the few lines of the address,  which hid been drawn up in a most  artistic manner by Mr. Lysons. The  presentation took the form of a lovely  set of.stolid tea spoons and some very  pretty china tea plates. Mrs. Schon,  in acknowledging, said that it had  always been a great pleasure to her to  co-operate with the members of the  guild in all church work, and that she  should often think of them on their  regular meeting days and hoped they  would sometimes think cf her.  History is repeating itself. In 1898  D. C. Corbin made application to the  dominion parliament for a charter to  construct a railway from Marcus on  the Spokane Falls & Northern along  the Kettle river to the Boundary mining district. The people directly in-(  terested in the Boundary were anxious  that thia charter should be granted as  the'initial step in securing* transportation facilities, without- which no  further development could ^be carried  out.     ��� ' '���   ���  The application was,opposed by the  Canadian   Pacific  Railway Company  and not only was'tliere a strong lobby  maintained at Ottawa but the'services  of newspapers friendly to the Canadian  corporation were enlisted.' -During the  time, the measure >was before the railway 'committee the old flag was vigorously waved and column 'after column  of   patriotic twaddle "published.' The  bogie man of a foreign railway, corporation draining   the wealth   of  our  country -for the benefit of our\neigh-  bors to^the south, was trotted out to  frighten the timid, and arouse well in-  tentioned citizens of this country wlio  are always ready to show their loyalty  to' Canadian institutions, when it entails no ! sacrifice of themselves or^the  particularrportion of the f dominion in  which their interests lie!   "The principle involved in the Corbin application  was the right of an important mining  district in British Columbia _to secure  the best transportation facilities. That  right has never been denied any other-  portion  of the  dominion.   It  was.a  principle > which the people of British  Columbia should have stood by and  fought for but unfortunately at that  time as now there were men and newspapers in our pspyince who ;were~pre-  pared 'to^/be' frightened by the(bogie  man in order  that _Southern   British  Columbia might be continued a pr'e-  serveof the Canadian Pacific Railway  Company. '  In 1898 the Canadian Pacific railway  lobby was too" strong and the Corbin  charter did not pass.^ -' -,  " But the road was built. Corbin sold  his interests teethe Great Northern  Railway Company, and.that company,  after encountering many difficulties,  succeeded in constructing a road from  Marcus, west through Grand Forks to  Phoenix. Today the Great Northern  railway is operating the road Mr. Corbin ask permission to build. Have the  prophecies of the Canadian Pacific  Railway been ful filed ? Instead of  draining the wealth of Canada into the  United States this road is draining the  wealth-of United States into Canada.  Not a pound of Boundary creek ore is  treated in American smelters; the ore  of Republic. Washington, is being  treated at the smelters of Grand Forks  and Greenwood.  When the Canadian Pacific railway  began hauling ores from the Boundary  mines to the smelters the rate on ore  frpm the Granby mines at Phoenix to'  the smelter at Grand Forks waa 75  cents a ton. With the advent of the  Great Northern into the district, this  rate was reduced from time lo time,  until today the rate is les3 than 25  cents a Hon. On a daily output of 3,000  tons, which the Granby has now, or  will soon reach, this will mean a direct  saving of Sl,500 a day to that company  alone. A saving of 50 cents a ton !  Only those who know the small margin  of profit in exploiting these inexhaustible mines of low grade ore can fully  appreciate. Similar reductions were  made and are being made in connection with the haulage of the large  quantities of coal and coke us>ed at the  Boundary mines and smelters. The  salvation of Boundary district depends  upon low transportation ratesjand mining companies are extending their  operations strong in the^assurance that  so long as the Great Northern railway  is a competitor of the Canadian railway, in the Boundary they will always  have reasonable freight rates.  A greater Boundary district is anxiously waiting for a railway. The  trend ot mining greatness in British  Columbia has been westwards. In the  early 90's Silvery Slocan was the Mecca  of the argonants. Later on the Rossland camp attracted the miner and the  capitalists. Today the boundless  Boundary district eclipses Rossland  and the day is not far distant when  Similkameen will be the banner district of British Columbia.  The politicians and the charter mongers built many railways on paper into  the Similkameen. The Great Northern  is now prepared to build a bona fide ^  railway from the Boundary 'to the  coast. Contracts, will Kbe let in a few  days lo construct the road to Princeton  and later on this road will be continued to the coast. The railway will be  built under the V. V. & B. eharter.  There is a possibility that this charter  is defective in minor details. A measure was recently introduced in the  dominion parliament to cure these'defects. vNo sooner was this done than  the same old flag waved; the same old  newspapers are publishing the same  old arguments and the same old bogie  man is masquerading in the same old'  clothes. ' ,'  In no other portion of the dominion  would the suggestion, that trade-, is to  be regulated by destroying lailway  competition, be "tolerated for a single  moment. Surely it i�� not unreasonable  tq demandvf or the district most directly interested the same freedom accorded other portions of the dominion in  the development of r a railway policy.  In the carrying.and.assembiing.of our  minerals, whether or not they conform  to political imaginary lines;,, grades  are more important than distance and  we must ^adapt our policy to the physical features of the country. We must  not trj^To, ship low grade ore on high  grade railways. If no obstructions are  placed in the Vay "of railway builders  they will'follow the natuaal" confor-^  mation of the'eountry. The construction' of a railway from Robson to Midway by the ICanaclian Pacific railway  shows great pluck and enterprise in  railway building, but^it is hot the way  to carry ore. { From Robson to Bull  Dog tunnel, a distance of 31 miles and  down to Cascade, 24 miles, there'is a"2  per cent grade, and from Grand Forks  to Eholt there is a similar grade. On  a > grade of" 1-2 per cent an,ordinary  locomotive can easily 'haul 40carsx>i  ore.^ On a grade of 1 per cent'this is  reduced to 20 cars and on aggrade of 2  per cent to110 cars. One Canadian  Pacific engine can haul from Fernie to  the Boundary smelters about 10 cars of  coke; a Great Northern engine of the  same power hauls from Fernie W the  Boundary smelters 30(cars. This difference in grades is responsible for the  reduced price paid b}-; the Granby, company today.  The policy the Canadian Pacific  railway and ltd satellites ask us to  pursue in Britikh Colum"bia,the Chinese  policy of the "closed door." Such a  policy will leave many of our mining  properties undeveloped...  The contour of the country in Southern-British Columbia^howstjthe_ need  of southern connection. The vallevs  run north and south and profitable  transportation lines must conform to  them. If our southern boundary were  the 45th parallel of latitude instead of.  the 49th, as it should be, we could have  had our own lines east and west running its branches up these valleys and  assembling ores where they would be  most profitably smelted. But it is no  use to cry over what we have lost. We  must make the best of what we have.  We protest against southern British  Columbia being the victim of the folly  of forcing railway lines to conform to  political boundaries. If we are afraid  to allow railway competition in southern British Columbia we will drive off  capital and our undeveloped mines ^ill-  remain dormant. We must go around  mountain ranges, not across them and  this cau be done only by allowing the  V. V. & E to build. Mr. Hill aBks for  neither subsidy nor favor of any kind;  all he asks is to be left .free to give  Southern British Columbia the best  lines on the lowest grades and thus insure low transportation charges.  Surely those who have faith in the  Province of British Columbia should  not be found advocating a policy of  of railway monopoly, of excessive railway charges, of increased cost of proj-  duction and of discouragement to  those who are developing the natural  resources of the province.  To my mind it is insulting to the intelligence and independence of the  people of British Columbia, that it is  the only portion of the Dominion  where the advocates of a policy of Canadian Pacific railway monopoly would  dare oppose the construction of a railway from the American side. Today,  in conjunction with D. C. Corbin, the  Canadian Pacific are building a feeder  from their Crqjv's Nest road to Spokane, Washington.

SO  FRIDAY- MAY 12, 1905  __Thb^ intelligent mining- man,  will look as carefully into the  means of transportation as he  will to the extent and values of  the ore body, before purchasing a  mining claim. It is doubtful if  there is a high-grade property in  the vicinity of Greenwood a  mile, and the majority of them  less than half a mile, from one  of the government wagon roads.  This being the case, the government can hardly be expected to  run branch roads to the working  shaft of every property in the  district. There is a sum of money  ' appropriated to keep the existing  trunk roads in repair, for the  convenience of'the general.public. The government agent would  do a great injustice by. using this  money in building branch roads  for the benefit pf a few individuals  whose properties -are within two  thousand feet of a trunk road.  The general'trend of the reports which are coming up from  Oroville these days indicate that  the bottom has practically fallen  out of the boom. Of course, Oroville is "destined >to' become- a  hustling little town���arid that,  too, at no distant date���but the  stampede of the floating element  in that direction was entirely unwarranted. There is no land  there to be takers up; no work  for the man who is broke; no extensive building going on. Oroville is all right, but it is unreasonable to expect so small and  voung a burg to maintain tab  wanderers'from Okanagan county  and the Boundary country. It is  only a repetition of the history  of the entire western country.  Better be contented with your lot  right here until something* more  substantial turns up to warrant a  move.���Mve*rs Creek News.  It is a custom, whether a sensible one or not, for mine managers  to allow representatives of the  press to examine the workings of  a mine. Not that the average  reporter knows so much about  miuiug, but just as a matter of  courtesy. If the mine managers  are -afraid of the reporter doing, himself a ' serious injury,  rules might be posted for his protection and- guidance. The following are suggested :  1. Tie your horse' to the'ihoisting  cable. This is a sure cure for "the  trucking habit.  2. Ingoing down a shaft walk ou  the foot-wall or us a rope ou the' hang-  wall. . ���  3. Keep out cf the sump. It is the  receptacle for 'seepage, detonators;  pieces 'of No. 2, and persons who attempt to walk on the hanging-wall.  Wote���The sump is usually placed at  the bottom of the "shaft.  4. Visitors are particulary requested  not to slide down or injure the bottom of the winze, which also has .a  sump in good working order. *  ? 5.    Do  not  remove  the winze without permission of ,the forman'.'  6. Keep your head 'with the resit of  your body while in-crosscut-or drift.  It is, uqfc necessary to look up the shaft  to see<if the cage is coming-down. The  cag*e will come without a look-out.  In no part of the West is there  so ' much money, expended annually on road building, taking  iutov consideration ��� the population and revenue of the province,  as ther'e is in British Columbia.'  In'uo part'of the West is'there  so large a mileage of wagon-  roads for the population, and considering ��� the natural difficulties  that tiave to be overcome. Across  the line,Jin the State of Washington, when the people want a  road they go down in their,  pockets. When the wagon road  from Republic" to Chesaw was  built it was done by subscriptions  from the business'men benefitted.  They didn't ask either the state  or the county to build a wagon  road for them. In'British Columbia people expect the government to build a wagon road to  every_tur_nip_ patch jmd prospect  hole in the country.  The assault at Anaconda this  week looks very much like too  much dago in the community.  The time to pul a stop to those  imported feuds is at the beginning. After a time the creatures  will acquire the habit of knifing  whites. All they need is a good  start and it will require a lynch-  party to suppress them.  This shooting through the window above the Bauk of B. N. A.  a few days ago is still shrouded  in mystery. It is even more mysterious than the disappearance of  the young man who left here for  Rossland Saturday last.  ���; Mukdkr will become a pass-  time in Qubec if the government  doesn't stop commuting the sentences of man-killers in that  province.  The most extensive and phenomenal  fountain of petroleum ever known is  on the island of Trindad. Hot bitumen has filled a basin four miles in  circumference, tnree .quarters of a  mile from the sea, estimated to contain the equivalent of 10,000,000 barrels of crude oil. The liquid boils up  continually, seething and foaming at  the center of the lake, cooling and  thickening as it recedes, and finally  becoming solid asphaltum. The bubbling, hissing, steaming caldron emits  a sulphurous odor, perceptible for 10  or 12 miles. Humboldt in 1799 reported  his impressions of this spontaneous  marvel, in producing whish the puny  hand of man had ��o share.   From it  is derived the dark, tough, semi-elastic  material, first utilized in Switzerland  for this purpose, which paves the  streets of scores of cities, the asphalt  pavement.  Pure platinum is a silvery white  metal with a specific gravity of 21.5.  It is the heaviest metal occurring in  nature with the exception of irridos-  mium. It is almost as hard as iron,  and very malleable. Platinum does  not amalgamate with quicksilver, is  not dissolved by potassium cyanide  when'cold, is not attacked by acids,  except the mixture of nitric acid and  hydro-chloric acid, known as aqua  regia, It is more difficult to melt than  gold. Native platinum has been fonud  most frequently in gold-bearing sands.  On account of its weight, it remains  in sluices with gold and other heavy  material. Native platinum is usually  found in an impure state; occasionally  it contains so much iron, chromite,  and other impurities as to be dark in  color and not easily distinguUhed from  grains of chromite, /with which it is  very , frequently associated.' It "often  contains iridosmine, which occurs as  fiat angular scales,l while platinum  grains are. usually rounded like gold  dnst. Generally, piatimum'grains are  smaller than gold grains. Large nuggets are rare.    ��� -    -- '  The .following advertisement ap>  peared in the For Sale columns of the  a prominent'Irish daily: "For Sale���  A pedigree bulldog, will eat anything,  very fond of children." , \  - Why Suffer From Rheumatism ?  ���Why-suffer from rheumatism when  one application of Chamberlain's' Pain  Balm will relieve the pain ?

Iron bars which have been buried  iu Portland cement concrete have,  after even'twenty years of contact,  shown no sign of rust.  It is commonly figured thataoX01'  V/z-inch air rock drill will require ten-  horsepower to operate. Thus the cost  of power to operate a drill per month  will be about SS3 when horsepower  costs $100 per annum.        ��� /   '  A pair of shovelers will load from  the ground into a mine car about  thirty tons on a shift of ten hours, if  shoveling from an iron plate, and the  material does not require much sledging. Of course, in cramped,-confined  places the amount shoveled will not  be so great.  Mine fires will smoulder for ysars.  Indeed, one can never be certain that  the fire has been extinguished, Even  after it is thought to have been put  out readmission of air will often cause  combustion to again become violent.  It is believed by many that this combustion is often spontaneous.  While it is true, that frequently a  large number of stringers coming to  the surface unite at depth, it by no  means follows that this will always  be the case. If these stringers carry  moderately rich ore it is always worth  while sinking and crosscuttiug in  order to see that a- number of them do  not unite and form a payable body of  ore.  The mineral, monagite, is mostly obtained from placers. The concentrates show various shades of color,  varying from red.or reddish brown  ' down to yellow1 or yellowish green.  Most of the monasite obtained in the  United States comes from North and  South Carolina, Monaaite' sands normally contain about 60 per cent of impurities. Its value depends upon the  percentage of thoria present.  - The principal minerals bearing tantalum are columbite, fergusonite, mi-  crolite, samarkskite aud hielmite. The  most promising localities for the production of tantalum ��� in the United  states are Llano county, Texas, Mitchell county, North Carolina, and the  Black Hills, South Dakota. In Colorado tantalum-bearing minerals have  been found in the El Paso county.  Amazon stone, and on Devil's Head,  Douglas county. A careful search for  ttieBe minerals .would doubtless be well  rewarded.  The utilization - of fine o're and flue  dusts in blast furnaces has presented  no small problem to many a furnace  manager. Sptne* recent experiments  in the line of briquetting these products seem to offer some help. The  fines are briquetted with bituminous  . _coal and.subjected to acokiug process.  The coke thoroughly incorporates the  fine material and carries it into the  furnace without much loss, and with  the additional advantage that it carries carbon for the reduction of the  ore.  One of the most important things  in the construction of a cyanide plant  is to see that the vats have good foundations. If solid rock cannot be  reached it is necessary to construct  masonry foundations, and to see that  these foundations rest ujioii a uniform  character of material. By giving the  bases of the foundation a lar?;e area,  so as to distribute the pressure as  much as possible should there be a  settlement, it will be equal, and the  vats will, if they settle at all, settle  at all, settle uniformly. it is, of  course, better to see that there is no  settlement. Irregular -settlement will  inevitably mean leaks.  The gold-dredging industry is spreading out in an extraordinary manner.  Until four or five years ago only the  venturous would engage in dredging;  today it is recognized as possibly the  soundest and safest branch of gold  mining. The reasons for this are:  1. The almost uniform success obtained when the plans have been  worked out by experienced men. 2.  The possibility of testing the ground  to be worked so as to know exactly  what it will yield. 3. The improvement in the construction of dredges.  A modern dredge will handle 75,000  cubic yards of gravel a month, at about  5 cents a yard, will deliver to a bank  about 20 feet above water level, and  take material from a depth of 60 feet  below water level. The power required by such a dredge is from 200 to  250 horsepower.���Mining Reporter.  with difficulty, and is susceptible to  magnetism, although not to the same  extent as iron.

A bond was given the past^-week on  the Trilby by Randolph Stuart and W.  H. Norris, J7 P., to C. J. McArthur  and associates, the consideration being $12,000. Work is to be commenced  June 1. The Trilby joins the" 13 P U  and was located iu 1894 by Randolph  Stuart.   "    -  A Times reporter visited the Gold  Bug crosscut tunnel on Wednesday  and met Contractor Osborn,,\vho very  kindly allowed him through the workings. As before stated in these columns  go'od progress is being maintained in  spite of the very hard nature^of the  rock through which the rock is being  bored. The. rock is a very fine-grained  granite and is no�� only hard boring  but dips the wrong way for easy blasting. The drill bores generally speaking a round per day of seven holes  and a lifter, and,each round represents  about five feet of tunneling. The tunnel is now in well overl75 feet and the  contract calls for 125 feet more work.  Unless there is sorne serious fault.to  the west,', a remote' possibility, as almost all the faults are to the east,in  this camp, the ore \yill be- encountered  ator before the 300 feet mark.  One of tlie claims on the bench above  Twin creek-to the south, and the first  claim ' encounte/ed ��� after leaving  Greenwood,- is the Goldfinch. Part of  the BP U tramway' is on the Goldfinch r ground. Underneath the >ore-  shoot" at the foot ,of- the VE P U tramway, {the late owners pf 'the Goldfinch  ran a tunnel aloug- am outcrop and  after going in for about'fqrt3r( feet, lost  the lead. ' In November last Mr. E. F.

A tunnel has been fatal ted about  fifty yards west pf the old tunnel and is now oil a most promising  looking- lead about ten inches wide  and carrying good val neb in gold and  silver. In the old tunnel Mr.-Maddeu  pitt in a couple of shots to tlie right,  about six feet fiom the face, and lias  uncovered a good vein of quart/,, which  he^believes is a continuation irom the  vein of the main shaft, which was  sunk by the old owners, on the hill,  500 feet above and 500 feet to the southwest. The vein in the shaft divided  and a great deal of patient piospecting  been done b}' the present owner, with  a view to find the trend of these veins,  the result beinpr that both have been  struck ��ipparentl3r, one in each tunnel.  It is the intention to 1 un both tunnels  along-, their respective leads, stope out  as they go along and eventually raise  400 feet to the bottom (of the 100-foot  shaftv The new "tunnel'is now in  about fifteen feet from, the road.' Both  the leads are in, porphyry, walls, well  defiu6d, and not at all hard drilling.  A car of Goldfinch ore shipped from  the1- upper working*, some itime ago  yielded $5,000, or $.200 per ton. 'It is  expected that all the work 'done in  future will more than pay for itself,  aud most probably yield the owner a  handsome profit. " ,  There are quite a number of rather  promising looking claims to the north  of the Gold Bug, which were at one  time owned!, and d'&reat'many of them  opeiated by \the defunct Boundary  Creek Mining and Milling company.  Most of them passed into the hands of  the Baak; of lylontreai, but a few were  retained by the company; and ,sold for  taxes by' the1 provincial government.  Some of i the -most promising, among-  wl^ich is the G AR,' were bought in by  local parties,, and there seems t6 be  a possibilitj' of some of them being  operated again^his beason?l as Toronto  parties are' contemplating taking a  working bond*- on'two of the claims,  providing the j>rice and terms are satisfactory. The representative of these  Toiouto people has been quietly stejiug  up Greenwood' camp for some time and  informed The Times tliat he was most  anxions to secure'for his clients a  property from the .operation of which  he can in some measure 'prove to the  Eastern Canadian'people that all B.  C. properties and propositions are nbt  wildcats. The principal of the Toronto syndicate was here some weeks ago  and ���would scarcely hear the word  "mines," much lessv discuss the investment of any capitalV in rainitig  properties, but'after several conversations with good reliable, mining men,  many of wtiom Greenwood very fortunately possesees,'-this gentleman  began to see that he held a rather distorted yiew of the mining situation aud  lef t^mu'eh , impressed with what he liad  seen! and heard, aud instructed his  representative to kok out for him as  he and his associates. were willing to  invest in Greenwood camp if a suit-"  able ��opeiuiig for such investment  could be found. This has now'/ ap  parently beeu found and it is hoped  and expected that the da,wn of a new  era in the shape of the receipt of intelligently invested Eastern Canadian  capital for boundary mining has at  last arrived. - *  4s  ��S��  ^  %  e5oS  *  -It  Electric  current   suppliecl   for  Power, Lighting,   Heating and  -Ventilating.

The remains were taken to  Vernon on Monday's  train   for burial.  The engine aud slag-pot of the  Boundary Falls smelter went over the  dump last week. This caused a shutdown of the company's mines at  Phoenix. The engine and slag-pot  were in running order again on Monday. The smelter appears to have  been unlucky of late. The Miners'  Union might make money by taking  charge of the concern and running  it at reduced rates, the loss being  made up by the extra time its members  would get in the mines.

Greiger, formerly of the Greenwood I/iquor company here, and lately  a resident of Wall Walla, was in the  city this week and went on to Oroville where he will probably engage  in business. # > ,  Campbell Sweeney, manager of the  Bank of Montreal in British Columbia,  and H. DeVeber, manager of the Nelson branch of the bank, were in'the  city 'this week on their way to the  Similkameen, where it is probable a  branch will be opened'  An Italian Feud.  i. i  On Sunday'evening Frank Fera was  assaulted at Auaconda by a number of  Italians Itving theie. There has been  bad blood-^between^'Fera and the other  Italians for some time, arising out^ of  litigation over a mineral claim. ,Fera  was prety roughly used, having been  knocked down and "pounded on the  head with a rock' and left theie in an  unconscious state. , After a time he  regained consciousness and managed  to* reach Greenwood, wheie Dr. Spankie patched him up sufficiently to al-  of his going to Nelson Monday to  stand trial for perjury. The assault  case will come,* up ioy trial in the  police court here should Fera be  acquitted. Should hfe be found guilty  it is 'not probable that the would-be  assassins will be tried. Fera has always "attended to his own,'business.  Of course, if the government of the  country, in its desire for immigtants,  will persist in scrapirJg up the human  dregs of Europe, such cases will become of frequent occurrence in Canada.  Gradually the English speaking population of British (Clumbia is' being  driven out of .the industrial field by  Slavs, dagos,'Japs and Chinese. Along  the Crow, inthe coal mines, there will  soon be only the lowest class of Euro-1  peans working. In Fernie, among the  mine employees, English lsjnot spoken  by more than one thiid of the men.  Unlessla stop is put to this undesirable class of immigrants, it will only  be a few years until the population  of B. C. will be ragged, filthy Europeans, Japanese and Chinese. Outside of the Britain and Ireland the  only Europeans that make des3irable  citizens of-this coxmtry are the Germans, Swiss, Norwegians, Swedes,  and Danes.��� The others are a -job-lot,  born with a knife or a club in their  hands and" educated to appropriate  to their own uses  anything moveable.

THE C  (Continued from Page 1.)  has its feeders to Seattle, to St. Paul,  to"Duluthrthrough~Maihe,_in fact~at  every point along l!he boundary where  businesa offers, It is all right for the  Canadian' Pacific railway to make  American connection, but all wrong  for the Great Northern to make Canadian connections. The Dominion government heavily subsidized Mackenzie  & Mann's railway in the Rainy River  district. This railway runs in and out  along the international boundary line  to avoid difficulties of construction.  Parliament and thf country endorsed  this project'. The Michigan CeAtral  runs' its ( lines through Ontario and  there is even a tunnel between Sarnia  and Port Huron to facilitate this awful  drainage of Canadian wealth  If thio new principle of political  economy be sound, it should apply with  equal force to water 'transportation,  and the Dominion government should  be censured for subsidizing a line of  of steamers to drain Canadian wealth  into the capacious maw of the greedy  Republih of Mexico. The subsidy to  the Pacific Coast Steamship company,  which has a line of steamers engaged  in this unpatriotic business of buildup San Franciscy at the expense of  Canada, should be canceled, and the  trans-Pacific steamers of the Canadian Pacific railway, which are building upg China and Japan at the expense of Canada, should be withdrawn.  Even James Dunsmuir should not be  permitted to send the product-of his  mines to San Francisco. But why  multiply these absurdities. The fight  of today is thejight of 1898 over again.  It is a  fight for that railway  competition which is not denied other portions of the Dominion and it   is a fight j  in which it is not   unreasonable to ex- '  peet all g-ood British  Columbians and  all British Columbia  papers to  nnite.
