Catalogue and full particulars sent on application.  Brann's Gasoline Furnaces and Cupel Machines.  One of the busiest camps in the  Boundary is Deadwood. This morn-  idg- a Times representative was out  among- the mines that are at present  being- developed. He visited the  Butcher Boy, St. Lawrence, Buckhorn  and Sunset. The Morrison was also  taken in but was found to be closed  down. A caretaker is in charge of the  mine and from him it was learned that  development will be resumed before  the end of the month. On the Ah  There they are waiting- for the balance of the machinery to arrive for the  new hoisting plant which has been set  up. The Greyhound is not being operated at present.  ON THE ST.  WWRBNCE.  Some good looking" ore is being  taken out from the bottom of the shaft  on the St. Lawrence. The ore shows  plenty of iron and copper pyrites  is coming in freely. The shaft is  down 66 feet, all timbered. It is a good  piece of work and reflects credit on Superintendent Peterson. It is to be continued on down to 150 feet before drifting, will be started. The St. Lawrence is the property of a Spokane  company, the Deadwood Copper Mines,  Limited.  THE BUTCHER BOY.  Spokane capital is developing the  Butcher Boy at the north end of tho  camp. Recently water was coming in  pretty freely into the shaft, which in  terfered with the sinking. The management has had installed a hand  windlass, manufactured by the Union  Iron Works of Spokane. The water-can  now be easily handled and the work of  sinking will be continued. The shaft  has reached a depth of ��72 feet today.  Superintendent Warrington said that  at the 100-foot level, after cutting out  the necessary station, a crosscut of the  ore body would be made. The shaft  has been timbered and a manway  put in.  THS BUCKHORN.  Another property visited was the  Buckhorn. This mine is also being  developed by a shaft, which is down  200 feet, and a station is now being cut  before further sinking is resumed. At  the 100-foot level the crosscut to the  ore 1 iody is in over 100 feet aud there  is every indication that it is rapidly  nearing its objective, as stringers of  ore are coming into the face of the  crosscut very plentifully.  The sunset.  At the Sunset the work of cutting  down the old shaft is progressing  rapidly now that the machinery plant  is working. The old shaft was sunk  to a depth of 185 feet.���It has been enlarged to a double compartment, and  this work is down 140 feet, all timbered. The plant is working to perfection. The Sunset has the honor of  having the largest machinery plant in  the district at the present time. It  consists of half of a duplex 20-drill  compressor and two 80-horse-power  boilers. Superintendent Johns informed The Times man that a 50-horse-  power hoist and engine will be installed on the Crown Silver and the  shaft continued down to a depth of  about 300 feet. At this depth the bottom of the Crown Silver shaft and the  Sunset shaft will be on a level, when a  connection will be made between the  two. G. L. Fraser, recently at the  head of the B. A. C. machine shops at  Rossland, has been appointed assistant  superintendent of the Sunset and  Crown Silver mines.  THE  ATHELSTAN.  John Mack of Spokane is in the city  in connection with the resumption of  work on the Athelstan claim, in Wellington camp. Nearly two years ago  this property was under bond to  Loring, Crane & Snodgrass, at that  time a mining and engineering firm  of Spokane. They went to work and  opened the property and installed  machinery. The first cash payment  on the bond was made, but when the  second fell due they failed to meet  same, and the owners refusing an extension of time they closed down the  work. Mr. Mack is now having the  mine pumped ���-out /for the purpose of  having surveys Wade and a thorough  examination of the underground workings. He himself has no knowledge  of what -work the firm did, as immediately the extension of time was refused and the pumps taken up the  mine filled with water and has remained in this condition ever since.  Interesting News of the Mines In the Vicinity  of Beaverton,  Beaverton, West Fork of the Kettle  river, March 18.���[Special to the  Times.]���Work ou numerous properties in the'different camps along the  West Fork has been prosecuted during  the past few mouths with encouraging  results. The correspondent of the  Times was recently around the mines  and made the following notes of what  is being done.  Five men are employed on the Carmi.  A new shaft has been started. The  old one was sunk to a depth of 55 feet.  In the new shaft an excellent body of  ore has been encountered and recent  assays give returns as high as $341 to  the toil.  The shaft on the Idaho and Washington group is down past 100 feet.  Preparations are being made to crosscut to the ledge, which dipped from the  shaft at a depth of 40 feet.  On Cranberry  creek   Peterson   and  Steel  are developing  their   holdings  Considerable surface  work  done,   including   a   20-foot  They are now arranging to  foot tunnel,  which   will  give  depth of 160 feet on the ledge.  On the Blomington group, F. Mosher  and F. Finch have built a cabin and  propose opening the property by surface prospecting.  Ben Hall has been working for J. W.  Nelson on his claim in the Arlington  camp for the past four months, and reports that the claim is looking fine.  A.

Take Republic Machinery From Midway Down  Kettle River to Curlew.  Mention was made in The Times a  few days since of the presence in the  city of Major J. Edwards Leckie, manager of the Republic Gold Mining  company, and J. C. Ralston, a prominent mining engineer of Spokane.  The following from the Grand Forks  Miner of yesterday is believed to be  the reason of their visit in the Bouud-  dary: " To look into a transportation  scheme which they have on foot. This  scheme contemplates the utilization of  scows and barges for the transportation of the heavy machinery which is  necessary for the Republic mill. In  brief, the scheme is to ship the 20 cars  of machinery, which is now on the  road, over to Midway, where it is proposed to build scows on which the  machinery can be floated down to  Curlew, where it will be loaded upon  wagons and hauled from there up to  Republic. The roads from here to  Curlew are in very bad shape and will  remain so for some weeks to come, the  Goosmoos swamps being especially  bad, while it is desired to get this machinery into the camp as soon as possible. By sending it to Curlew via  Midway and the scow line it would be  possible to get the machinery that far  on the road much more expeditiously  than by taking it from here by wagon  and waiting until-"the road is in better  condition. It will also be possible to  dodge the worst part of the road.  Should this scheme be found practical,  it is more than likely that the two big  tanks now on the road for the cyanide  plant of the Republic Reduction Co.,  which are now stuck a few miles from  here, will be brought back and sent in  by the same route."  FIRST GENERAL MEETING.  Mountain View Company Elects Directors and  Officers.  Eholt, March 21.��� [Special to  the Times.]���At the adjourned first  general meeting of the shareholders of the Mountain View Copper Com  pany, Limited, held at Eholt yesterday, the following were appointed directors for the ensuing year: Patrick  Welch, John Stewart, John M. Scraf-  ford, John Dorsey, Victor Mon.iier,  John W. O'Brien, G. Arthur Rendell  and J. R. Mackintosh. At the meeting of the new board immediately  after, the following officers were  elected:' Patrick Welch; vice-president  and managing director, John M.  Scrafford; secretary-treasurer, J. R.  Mackintosh.  A Fiendish Attack.  An attack was lately made on C. F.  Collier of Cherokee, Iowa, tnat nearly  proved fatal. It came through his  kidneys. His back got so lame he  could not stoop without great pain, nor  sit in a chair except propped by cushions. No remedy helped him entil he  tried Electric Bitters which effected  such a wonderful change that he writes  he feels like a new man. This marvelous medicine cures backache and  kidney trouble, purines the blood and  builds up your health.

Duncan Ross _ Editor.  "SATURDAY, MARCH 24, 1900  MARTIN'S PLATFORM.  Hon. Joseph Martin has sufficient  political astuteness to promulgate a  platform that will strongly appeal to  the people. He has embodied in his  address to the Vancouver electors almost everything that is likely to catch  the popular vote. The weakness of  his platform lies in its very strength.  He wants to revolutionize things where  the public interest demands that matters be left alone. This province is by  no means on a permanent basis. Its  chief industry is mining. Capital was  being turned in this direction, mines  were being developed, properties were  being bonded, when hasty and ill-  advised legislation and unsettled political conditions prejudiced capital and  left business at a standstill- The  situation -will be aggravated if ��� Joe  Martin is allowed to continue in  power. He is probably not as dangerous a man as his enemies are anxious  to make him, but rightly or wrongly  he is the bogie man to those who might  be induced to invest their' money in  developing the resources of this province. Nothing that can be said in his  favor, nothing that he will do'will remove this prejudice. The province  can never developed without the assistance of outside capital and its  future depends upon having a stable  government and such legislation ' a s  will encourage the investor." It would  be suicidal then to sacrifice the future  of the province in a fight for principles  that may be theoretically sound.  We are ciscussing the situation from  a business standpoint. The election  of Martin and a majority for him in  the house means a continuance of the  present. dullness in the mining industry. What the Province wants at  present time is a government of strong,  safe business,, men in whom the investing public can place confidence;  otherwise the mining industry will be  irretrievably ruined.  f It may sound like sacrificing sound  . political principles to the caprices of  the mining market, but is there" an  alternative? Of what use are state-  owned railways if their accompaniments   - are     unexploited     nat-  of the Rossland Board of Trade, a  a meeting was held in Rossland.  Every board of trade in the Kootenays  and Boundary was represented. The  delegates were there to discuss matters  affecting the business interests. A  similar conference could be held at the  present time. The interests of the six  Kootenay constituencies are identical,  and are of greater importance than  those of the politicians. If such conference were held, a platform suited to  all interests in the mining district  adopted and candidates placed in the  field, such an organization of business  men could Lcall on the party men to  carry out their professions of party disinterestedness and join them in a'n organized effort to secure stable government for the Province.  FIGHT   FOR   PRINCIPLE.  was opposed hy every representative  of the peopie. Their wishes were disregarded. The views of the people as  expressed through their representatives were set at naught, and a one-  man government created. The prin-  ple of representative government in  South Africa is worth fighting for.  Should it not be equally valuable in  British Columbia ?  THE SIMILKAMEEN,  NATIONAL   WAR   LOAN.  J. NEAl.  J. WATT  The supporters of Joe Martin point  to himself and his policy and ask what  objection can be taken to either. When  the circumstances under which he became premier are considered, neither  Mr. Martin's virtues nor the merits of  the policy need be discussed. The  real point at issue in the contest is  whether the people are going to allow  a self-constituted satrap to disregard  the wishes of their representatives and  force upon them a premier of his own  making. The members of the last  legislature had their faults, but they  were elected by the people. Whatever  the political parties of the Province  may do, they should at least nnite  for the purpose of teaching the  governor that no man can go  back 200 years for precedent to  guide him in calling upon a man who  could not find a follower in the legislature elected by the people. -He has  created a Mclnnes government, instead  of permitting responsible government.  We doubt very much if Mr. Martin  will be able to complete his cabinet.  We think it probable that he will find  no other man of any prominence who  will countenance conduct that has no  parallel since the time of Charles II.,  when the length of parliament depended not on the wishes of the people but in the personal feelings of tbe  king.;.'. ,.   ���������������  Any demagogue, any practiced politician can promulgate a policy that  tickles the fancy or suits the wishes of  what is termed the common people;  but of what value is such a policy if its  sponsor is a man who is willing to accept office.at the expense of proper constitutional; methods and the peroga-  tives of the people's parliament.  The prospectus of the National War  Loan may prove interesting reading to  Greenwood capitalists' anxious- to secure safe investment for surplus funds.  The prospectus says in part:  Issue of loan of thirty million pounds  sterling, bearing interest at 2_^ per  cent per annum, to be redeemed at par  on the 5th April, 1910.  Price of issue fixed by H. M. Treasury at ��98 10s. per cent.  The governor and company of the  Bank of England give notice that they  are authorized, to receive applications  for this loan, which will take the form  either of inscribed stock or of bonds to  bearer,' at the option of the subscribers.  The interest at 2^ per cent per annum and the capital will, be a charge  on the consolidated fund, of the United  Kingdom.  The books of the loan will be kept at  the Bank of England and at the Bank  of Ireland. Dividends will, be paid  quarterly in the same manner and on  the same dates as the dividends on  consols, the first dividend, a three  months.' dividend, will be paid on the  5th Jxily, and the second dividend, also  a.full-three months' dividend, on the  5th October.  ,: .  The loan will be repaid on the 5th  April, 1910.  GEO. ALDOUS.  'J. C. BUDD  ALDOUS _ BUDD  ill) Wt  Keremeos is the Center of the  Similkameen Mining Belt,  First - Class Accommodation.

Princeton, B. C  PRINCETON, B. C.  lice. 1  n  PREFERENTIAL IS WORKING.  TO BUSINESS MEN.  That the political  situation is badly  complicated no one will deny; that it  is as serious as it is complicated the  business men in the mining districts  are ready to admit.  With an organized  effort those same business men could  secure control of political affairs and  bring to   the   province  a   reasonable  measure of security.   Instead they-are  flirting with the politicians and tacitly  encouraging them in ruining the business interests of the province.   Business men appreciate how seriously the  present  political muddle is affecting  their interests, but they are apparently  unable or unwilling to take such,action as will  protect themselves.. The  situation has become so serious thai it  is no longer a question of party politics.    Men's political views and predilections should be subordinated to the  higher duty of securing a government  that   will   possess   the confidence  of  those having close relations with the  business   interests   of   the   province;  that will bring that measure of security  so   necessary to   attract   capital   and  credit.   The leaders of the two great  parties in the country have   declared  that in the coming contest they  are  not anxious to secure party advantage  at the expense bf the province.   Their  object is to defeat a man who is responsible for the panicky feeling that  prevails. ��� They will never succeed in  accomplishing: their   object    if  each  party   look ��� Iwith   distrust   upon   the  other. ^-i-  That concerted- Action on the part of  the business men is"-necessary must be  apparent.'

It was suggested that a genuine effort be made- to effect a compromise with the claimants,:, the then  chief "justice strongly recommending  this course. But the city decided to  fight the cases, which went from court  to'court until finally the privy council  decided"against the city. The cost of  this litigation amounted to thousands  of. dollars, which could have been  avoided had the city taken ��� a sensible  view of the situation Tat the commencement of the. suits..

By the time the Conservatives get  through fighting each other they will  not have energy Jenough left to fight  Joe. Martin.  The Nelson Miner would like to see  Hewitt Bostock lieutenant-governor of  the province because his appointment  would mean the dismissal of Mclnnes.  Joe Martin has the support of the  Vancouver World and the opposition  of every other paper in the province.  Both are equally prejudicial to his  chances of success.  The Victoria Colonist points out that  tlie Nelson convention has evolved a  strange sort of resolutions which recites that whereas Liberals and Conservatives united, to meet a crisis and  thus formed the Liberal-Conservative  party, the Liberals and Conservatives  ought to divide to meet the crisis in  this Province.

Alderman Galloway had an idea  '"that the matter should be referred to  . the street committee. : Alderman Galloway suggested that* if the Electric  Light (company would contribute $10  t'o>vard the cost; that the council would  expend   a   similar   amount   and. take  over the bridge as a public utility.  -���';������-       ^SEWERAGE  SYSTEM. ;,:;'  A lengthy report on the installation  of a temporary system of sewerage was  read from the medical officer of health  and the city engineer, in accordance  with instructions issued to them by the  chairman of the sca/vengering com-  tsiitteei. !i-; The report recommended the  aflojpoi_*;(_fC-the principle pf the con-:  strhcticm 'Jof' cess-tanks, brick ''ce-.  nien't^d'', covered and ventilated, to be.  installed in buildings in the central  area of the city, such as hotels, stores,  etc.;; It' -also recommends that the proprietors of the following buildings^be  notified that they will have to. put in  water con nection and cess-tanks at  once, viz:-' (a.)

Aldermen Sharpe, Sullivan and  Bannerman were appointed a special  committee to investigate the water  rights on Lind creek, with a view to  ascertain what amount of water, if  any, the city could obtain. -  FURTHER SIDEWALKS.  The street committee was authorized  to have the sidewalks completed on  Kimberly avenue and Silver street.  Lumber is already on the ground ready  to be laid.  A UW COSTS ACCOUNT.  O  The account of F.'M. McLeod. associate; counsel with City Solicitor  Leamy in the cases of Rendall vs. The  City and Miller vs. The City, amounting to $385.40, came before the council.

Gold  Mamie 7 Foster, a Colored   Habitue of  Street is Up Before the Magistrate.  " Hereafter no fine will be imposed  on any woman brought into my court  and charged with soliciting, they will  be imprisoned." These words were  uttered by Police Magistrate Hallet  Tuesday in the little room that  serves the double purpose of the police  department and police court, and were  addressed to two women,: habitues of  cribs on Gold street. Constable Lawder nodded approvingly;at the magistrate's stern warning, for at last the  police were assured that in future all  cases of soliciting-"would be sternly  dealt with.        "7  The cause of these remarks was the  outcome of the case of Hugh Sweeny  against Mamie Foster. The inform-  nat told the court the story of how he  had been inveigled into the "crib" of  Mamie Foster yesterday morning and  there relieved of the sum of $40. He  was considerably drunk at the time  and his story was open to contradiction. :This was the line of defense  adopted; by Mamie Foster. She is a  colored women ,a;nd it is not the first  time she has been in police circles. She  flatly denied all the allegat'ons made  by the complainant and on her own  behalf introduced" evidence of her next  door neighbor, a white woman. The  evidence being so contradictory the  magistrate, adjourned the case until  Thursday/to' allow the. police department time to gather additional evidence, one way or the other. At the  close the police were instructed to  notify the women of Gold street what  punishment would be inflicted if the  practice/ of_ soliciting /was riot im-  miediatel^put a stop to. 7   7  ABOUT   THE   C.   P.   R.  General  In closing it further recommends as  follows: " Taking into consideration  the extreme filthiness in which the  backyards are kept in connection with  certain buildings to the west of Boundary creek, we think it advisable to suggest that as soon as possible the Twin  creek- ^vater supply , be carried over  Boundary creek to Gold street," to serve  reoidences;in that quarter, and also the  Chinese quarter/so that cess-tanks  might be put in and connection made  with the mains in the interests of public health." On motion the report was  referred to the city solicitor on account of the many legal points raised  in compelling the enforcement of the  suggestions contained therein.  i'fJ-E  DTJMPlkb GROUND;  Alderman Galloway reported that  progress was being made in cleaning  up the garbage at the dumping ground.  The council authorized the purchase  and painting of a sign board for the  garbage'ground.  ON THE POUCE BOARD.  During the absence of Mayor Hardy  froin the city, Alderman Sharpe was  appointed a temporary member of the  board of license and police commissioners in his place.  ARBITRATION  PROCEEDINGS.  Alderman Sullivan, chairman of a  special committee appointed re arbitration proceedings, reported that he  had seen the; arbitrators and was informed that they had already made an  award, particulars of "which he was unable to ascertain.  ' "���     A''LEAKY  F..UME.  Robert Wood had a complaint to  register regarding the leakage of the  flume on Greenwood street. The  water was going into the new cellar in  his building and was ruining the same.  " Tlie couricil agreed to employ  men to  FREIGHT    BUSINESS    ENLARGING  R. L.  Ford Speaks Highly of the Construction  Columbia and Western Railway.  Transportation Notes.  R. L. Ford, contracting freight agent  for the Chicago, Milwaukee -& St.  Paul railway, with headquarters at  Spokane, arrived in the city on Saturday, and will leave this afternoon for  his home. This is Mr. Ford's first  visit to Greenwood, and he expressed  himself this morning as being well  pleased with his short stay here. He  said: " I was quite surprised to find  such a prosperous city as Greenwood.  I. have been reading much about its  growth and the many mining camps  surrounding it and decided to come up  here and see the place myself. This, I  hope will be a forerunner of many  more trips. My company has done  considerable business in connection  with moving freight along its lines for  the Boundary. I intend to watch this  business closely as it is. a. rapidly  growing one. Of course what we  handle comes from the American side  of the line, principally machinery.  Other freight is beer and a little merchandise, though the bulk of the latter  comes in over the C. P. R.  " I was struck with the magnificent  road the C. P. R. has constructed into  this country. People complain of what  they term excessive freight rates up  here, but when one stops to consider  the enormous amount of capital expended by that company in building  into the Boundary they can appreciate  th.it it will take years to make it a.  really remunerative branch. However,  the company was looking to the future  and when the mines begin to ship and  the two smelters now being built in the  district are smelting ores the tonnage  must actually grow to sucli proportions  that it will be a handsome investment  in after years," he concluded.  The Greenwood  Electric Company.^  Are now prepared to undertake the installing of lights  on premises of intending  consumers. Before any building is connected to the Company's mains, the wiring  will have to be inspected by  an officer of the Company.  All work must be done in  accordance with the rules of  the National Board of Fire  Underwriters. Prices and  any further particulars can  be obtained at the office ot"  the Company * located on  Deadwood street.  Greenwood Electric Co.  Greenwood, rB. C.  Mineral Act, 1896.

Passenger Aeent . McPtiersoa Talks  for Publication.  - General. Passenger Agent McPher-  son of the C. P. R. was in Seattle a  fevvdays since, accompanied by Assistant General Passenger Agent E. J.  Coyle of .Vancouver. Mr. McPherson  was en route to California, where he  will spend, t^short vacation. He told  the Post-Intelligencer that westbound  business over the Canadian Pacific  was heavy, while, like the other transcontinental lines, there is practically  little eastbound travel. This was  briefly his summoning up of the passenger department situation of the  road.  ^"It-will-;beremembered-"that-^Mr--*Mc-  Pherson; recently spent about two  weeks in the Kootenay and Boundary,  inspecting/the offices arid business of  the company. He told the paper "that  the Columbia, and Western branch was  being operated as far west as this city,  that daily trains were running into  Greenwood and business was good.  "I can't say that the immigration  business on our road is at its best," he  said. "During the last year we have  handled a large number of homeseek-  ers to Manitoba. A good portion came  from the United States, having sold  their .'land here at a good price and  moved where land was ��� cheaper. We  have also brought a, number to Washington. We expect this year; will be a  heavy one.for homeseekers' business."  H. A. Durkee, freight conductor.on  the C & W. branch, has been indisposed for the past few. days at the  Hotel Armstrong. He hopes to be  sufficiently recovered'to go on duty tomorrow.  The Phoenix Pioneer in its last issue  says that preparations are being made  for the building of the station depot at  that poirit. It also believes that the  completion of the branch from Hartford junction into Phoenix will be  made shortly.  A special from Montreal today says  that in an interview had. by the Associated Press with Thomas Tait,  manager of the C. P. R. lines east of  Fort William,-he intimated that the  company would shortly put standard  running rules into operation.  . The United States supreme court  has.handed down an important decision concerning the right of contract  as between railroads and their employees. The court holds that there is  no principle of public policy preventing- the making of a contract by a railroad employee to relieve the railroad  company froiri responsibility in case of  an accident.

Captain Troup arrived here in time to catch  the train  for Robson.   He was accompanied by  J. L. Lawrence,  train master for the  Columbia and Western branch, and H.  L. Johnson, road master for the same  line.   Previous to leaving the superintendent was, seen by a representative  of this   paper, and expressed himsejf  highly   satisfied   with   his   brief visit  along the line.   He said : " It was. my  first trip to Phoenix.   I went there to  see   how   conditions   were   and   came  away more than satisfied.   I -<un not in  .1 position to  say just whett the road  will be completed from Hartford-junction to Phoenix.   This is, a matter that  is in the hands of tlie. construction department,   tnough   I  believe   that as  soon as the Deadwood  branch is fin*-  is.ted work will tne started at Hartford  j .motion  to   outld   into  Phoenix  and  qjmplete tne sub-spurs to   ihe mines."  Asked when  the  main  line of  thc  C. & W. would be completed and train**  running 'into Midway,  he continued"-  " The operating department will suo.t  take over the balance of the road until  the construction department hay*; fixed  it up properly.   There  is  much feo be  done on that piece of road, and it may  take some time to finish the. ballasting,  but just as soon as it is  completed it  will be taken over and the trains run  out to Midway.  "The only local news tha_t may interest you is our intention to change  the time of the departure of trains  from this point. In a few days we  shall haye a new time card, providing  for the trains to leave Greenwood  earlier in the afternoon. How muchZ  "\YelU about half an hour earlier thajai  - at present.

The. condition.  of the roadbed at this season of the:  year necessitates a little longer time  being taken, that is the reason, for the  change.

T  ���m>���  MINERAL   ACT.  A POSSIBLE   RATE. WAR_  Canadian Pacific Refuses to Sign the Anti-  Commission Compact.  From Seattle comes.the suggestiomodF  a possible rate war between the Ca_3i__-  dian Pacific and the American tra_t_Si-  continental Hues over the refusal o.f  the C. P. R.* to sign the agreejneat  to abolish the practice of payin<�� commissions for business routed o\re__- its,  line. The history of this anti-coramisr  sion compact is briefly as foliow.s :. In  January_last_there.was_a_ con f erence^of^  the heads of the different roads affected held in New York. At this, meeting  practically all the lines signed the  agreement with the exception of the C.  P. R. From February 1, the. date it  became effective, up to March 10 the  C. P. R. held off and continued to pay  commissions. On that date it apparently came into line with a proposition  to sign the agreement and abolish  commissions, provided the Great  Northern would take off its $25 colonist  rate to Seattle and also its reduced  rates to intermediate points. After  some delay the Great Northern agreed  to this proposal, cancelling the colonist rates. The Northern Pacific,. Burlington and other lines followed suit  and the whole matter was supposed, to  be settled. But it is now given out  that the Canadian Pacific has absolur  tely refused to sign unless, granted further concessions by the American  lines. Chief among these concessions  is a refund of all commissions paid  last summer for business to the Kootenay districts, because of the competition of American lines.

Last Saturday an executive session was held in Omaha, at  which the C. P. R. was bitterly denounced, but the press of that city have  not been able to ascertain what action  will be taken to preserve peace or inaugurate a rate war. Trouble is naturally predicted, and before the matter is settled railroad men believe a  war in passenger rates may result.  Mr. Hill, they point out, is not a man  to be trifled with, and after accepting  the original proposal of the C. P *R.  in good faith, he is now liable to become unapproachable, and will fix  colonist rates to suit himself. This-  may also lead to a transcontinental  rate war between his line and the other  H.
