MLL BE VINDICATED
Provincial Government Re
the Canada Northern Deal.
The Victoria correspondent of tbe
Rossland Miner says the royal commission into the charges made by
Smith Curtis, firstly, that Premier
Dunsmuir abused his position as first
minister to endeavor to maiie an advantageous bargain with KacKenzie
and Mann (or the sale of the E. & N.,
and secondly that the ministry acted
improperly in retaining Mr. Greenshields as their counsel when that
gentleman was also acting for MacKenzie and Mann, has proved to be
an important inquiry, uotwithstaud
ing the prediction tbat it would eud
as other commissions have, in more or
less of a fizzle. An entirely new turn
■has been given to the matter by the
position taken by the miuisters one
after the other when summoned to J
give evidence, namely, tbactbey have
never stated in the house that Mr.
Greenshields was acting for the government in the railway negotiations,
but only in regard to better terms.
To disprove this Mr. Curtis has called
the members of the press gallery, ou
both tbe government and the opposition organs, and their tesmony practically agrees in that the statement
that Mr. Greenshields was acting for
the government was repeated made by
tbe ministers on the floor of the house,
and withdrawn only after Mr. Curtis
brought his charges and the ministry
saw what an awkward position this
put them in. The attitude of the commissioner to the wholeinquiry warrants
namely, {2,000,000, was as much as
they would ever get, and urging Gen.
Hubbard to sell. Gen. Hubbard replied, agreeing with the premier as to
the advisability of selling, as be said
the road had always been operated at
a loss, and the reason he did not accede was because be had doubts in regard to the bona fides of the parties
with whom negotiations were going
on.
1.1
THEFT AND ITS SEQUEL.
Greenwood, B. C, April 7.-The
police were looking lor the perpetrator ol a theft which had unusually
strange surroundings. Thursday evening last 1 r. Oppenheimer's surgery
was entered whilest that gentleman
was attending the entertainment
given by the Phoenix minstrels ^ind
several surgical instruments abstracted that it is unlikely a novice in their
use would have taken. At the same
time chloroform and some ether were
taken from a case, the lock of which
was forced to admit of their being removed. The theft was discovered before midnight and the police informed
of the occurrence. Next morning a
man going up to Hie Mother Lo.ie
mine in search of work found the instruments, which had the appearance
of having been used since they were
taken from the possession of the
owner, uninjured and carefully placed
in a conspicuous position so that the
passer by could not fail to see tbem.
The inference is they were taken for
use in an attempt to procure abortion,
and were placed where found so that
the owner would soon hear of their
whereabouts and recover them. So
far no clue in the direction of a solution of the mystery has been obtained.
CANADIANS FOUGHT BDAVELY.

Commenting upon the every present question of Oriental immigration,
the Toronto Telegram takes the following ground:
"With their voices Ralph Smith, M.
P., and Aulay Morrison, M. P., clamor for relief from the peril of Asiatic
cheap labor in British Columbia.

Owing to a washout and slide on
the Columbia & Western near Coryell
the passenger train clue here at 2 p. m.
is reported 15 hours late.
Carpenter & Co., of Rossland have
opened a branch photographic gallery
ment, which violated the provincial
rights ol British Columbia in order to
keep the door open to Chinese and
Japanese laborers. Eastern Canada
is not to blame lor the evils which follow the influx of Asiatic laborers into
British Columbia. The people of
British Columbia are not in earnest 011
this question. The Asiatic labor
question is a text lor vote niakiug
spteches. Imperial reasons do not
prevent the states of tbe Australian
commonwealth Irom legislating
against Chinese and Japanese laborers.
Imperial reasons should not prevtnt
anv province of the Dominion from
protecting its own people against
Asiatics. Britisli Columbia elects partisans who trifle with the question.
When the peopl.- of British Columbia
leain to display their earnestness at
the polls, Eastern Canada and the
Laurier government will listen and
give them what they want."
The Telegram is not wide of the
mark. What this province needs
above all things is a government composed of honest men instead ol designing politicians.

Situation,    Environments    and    General
Re^oi irces.
Yft
The Oity of Columbia is situated
near the junction of the North Forks
of the Kettle river with the main Kettle river, and is distant about 300
miles east of Vancouver.
The natural situation of the city for
beauty Is not excelled in Ameriea. A
verdure-clad and flower-bespaii'led
rolling prairie, traverser] by a rivar of
bright, sparkling waier, fringed with
forest trees and surrounded by mountains, forming a charming combination of picturesquesuess and grandeur
The Columbia A Western railway,
which was constructed by the Canadian Paciflo Railway company, has its
station, freight warehouse and yards
in the oenter  of  Columbia,  and the
Vancouver, Victora A Eastern Bail-
way company, has located its depot,
freight sheds and yards along the east
line of the corporation, thus giving
the city connections with two transcontinental lines
The Canadian Pnoifle railway com-
Eany has large interests In the city,
aving selected the site on account of
the superior natural advantages as a
railway centre,
The climate, taken all the year
around,'is the best iu Canadn—part of
the summer is rather hot and dry, but
the rest of the year is enjoyable.
Throughout the Kettle Kiver valley
there is an extent -if fertile agricultural land, part if which is now being cultivated. |
Apples, plums, pears, prunes, cherries and all the small fruits grow
abundantly. The valley surrounding
Columbia, divided into small fruit and
vegetable farms, will sustain a large
population.
Building raateriul is plentiful in the
district. Lumber can be procured at
fair prices, and brink lime and stone
of good-quality can always be obtained when required.
The mining interests are of the first
importance to this country, and will
do much to build up Columbia. Large
mineral lodes have been discovered
through the mount tins adjacent to
the city, and what were mere prospects a short time since are now large
paying mines.
Water is supplied the oity by pumping from a beautiful spring of excep
tional purity, capable of supplying a
city of 50,000 inhabitants.
The Granby smelter and converter
—the most modern and perfect plant
of the kind in America—employing
hundreds of men, is contiguous to the
city,
(Jiving to the fine climate, the central situation, the beautible environments, the bright prospects for future
growth and prosperity, Columbia will
be an educational centre, a city of
homes, as well as a wholesale distributing point; and when finally nllied
and wedded to her sister sister, will be
the best and largest city in the interior.

I Princeton, N. [•., April 7.— President
Pattoo said today on the gift of the
1 late Cecil Rhodes to the University of
j Oxford]: "This extraordinary gift is
J an extraordinary occasion for general
rejoicing. It will strengthen the ties
between Great Britain and her worldwide colonies, and that is a part of
Imperialism which should have heartiest approval of all. It will foster the
sentiment of good will between the
two great English speaking nations
and in this way serve the cause of
Christian civilization. It will bring
the influence of English ideas to bear
upon our American system of education, and that will be a distinct advantage to us. It only remains that
some one should give a similar opportunity lor British youths to study in
our American Universities. Both
countries have much to learn from
each other."
