MILLIONAIRES AND LABOR.
New York, Feb. 20.—The first meeting of the legislative committee of 36,
appointed through the National Civic
Federation to arbitrate labor troubles,
was held yesterday, with Senator
Hanna in the chair. The object of the
gathering was to receive a report on a
working plan by means of which
strikes, lockouts and other forms ot
disputes bitweeu capitalists and the
laboring class may be se tied. This
p'an was presented by a subcommittee
in the form of a set of by-laws, which
provide that the chairman of the legislative committee of the federation
shall appoint a committee on conciliation to consi. t of nine members, three
of whom shall be selected from each
group of the legislative committee
representing capital, labor and the
general public, whose duty it shall be,
at the request of the chairman, on information of the strike or lockout of
more than ordinary magnitude, to use
its good offices in restoring harmonious relations, reporting its   action   to
filled. Il 45 per cent of those on the
list vote iu favor of the act; or if 60
per cent ou the voters' list vote, and
60 per cent thereof vote in favor; or
if the vote falls below 60 per cent
then a per centage between 60 per
cent and 64 2-3 per cent will be taken.
No reference is made in the bill to
compensation for the liquor men. The
bill cotisistB of twenty-five clauses,
and two schedules, but apart from the
prov sions outlined above there is
little or nothing which effects the
issui-. The majority of the clauses are
merely formal in their nature ami pro.
vide lor machinery aud so forth.

The following from the Province is
surprising in that it makes the editor
to think that education unfits man for
tilling the soil or o her p'rys'cal exertion. We teg to differ with the Province in this matter. It says; The immense sums that are being given to

CUr  MUNTELL WANTED IN WHATCOM, WASH.
Last night Constable Dinsmore and
Chief of Police McMillan went to the
home of Clay Muntell, who has been
employed at the smelter here for the
past two years, and placed him under
arrest.
At the time of the arrest Mr. and
Mrs. Muntell were at the iupper table,
the officers calling him outside to
make known their mission.
It mppeais that the authorities of
Whatcom county, Wash., have been
looking for Muntell the past four
years and only a few days ago located
their man in Grand Forks.
He is charged with horse stealing,
the complaint having lain against him
since 1897, in the meantime Muntell
had lived two years at Trail and two
years here.
Mr. Muntell says his arrest is the
result of spite and persecution on the
part of an enemy of his who resides
in Oaksdale.
Sheriff McKay of Whatcom arrived
here yesterday,ai.d after the necessary
papers ban been issued fr itu Magistrate Johnson's court, and after  Mun-
morter and sawing nood. We do not

The U. S. navy ring, backed by
President Roosevelt, is still on top,

President says neither of them did

DEED OF A HEROINE
Miss Gitnblet, who tesides with her
sister Mrs. W. L. Wells,  had occasion i
to walk down the track  last  evening
j about dusk, on her way to the south-1
: ern portion of Van Ness Avenue.   She |
j had not traveled far when she noticed
a drunken man reeling along the track
in front of her.   Just then  the head-
: light of a locomotive came out of the
1 bridge and thundered  up the r< ad.
Miss   Gimblet,   the   train    and   the
drunken   man came together at the
same point. Slit stepped off the track j
but  noticed that he  did   not.   Shei
shouted to him to get out of the way I

The lecture in the Biden

Mr. Maitin Burrell, though bslen to-

Mr. Burrell is a fluent and rasy

Re^ot trees.
The City 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 America. A
verdure-clad and flower-bespangled
rolling prairie, traversed by a river of
bright, sparkling waier, fringed with
forest trees and surrounded by mountains, forming a charming combination of picturesquesness and grandeur
The Columbia A Western railway,
which was constructed by the Canadian Pacific Railway company, has its
station, freight warehouse and yards
in the center  of Columbia, and the
Tancouve r, Victora A Eastern Railway company, has located Its depot,
freight sheds and yards along the east
line of the corporation, thus giving
the oity connections with two transcontinental lines.
The Canadian Paoifle railway company has large interests in the city,
having selected the site on account of
the superior natural advantages as a
railway oentre,
The climate, taken all the year
around,'is the best in Canadn—part of
the summer is rather hot and dry, but
the rest of the year is enjoyable.
Throughout the Kettle River valley
there Is an extent »f fertile agricultural land, part of 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 material Is plentiful in the
digtriet. Lumber can be procured at
fair prices, and briok lime and stone
of good quality oan always he 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
throngh the mountains adjacent to
the oity, and what were mere prospects a short time sinoe are now iarge
paying mines.
Water Is supplied the city 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,
Owing 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 allied
and wedded to her sister sister, will be
the best and largest oity in the interior.
