WANT HALF THE  PROVINCE.
Victoria, March 4.—Premier Dunsmuir made a speech iu the house today in reply to (Japt. Tatlow, of Vancouver, in which he accused Tatlow
and Garden, of a desire' to enter his
cabinet, if they could have been reelected. He claimed that Martin was
not tbe dictator of the government
but one of its supporters.
The terms of the contract with McKenzie and Mann were submitted in
the house today. Tbey agree to build
a line irom Bute Inlet to Yellowhead
Pass, commencing worn before June,
1903, beginning at Bute. They are to
deposit $50,000 security. The line is
to be completed within five years. The
company is to get §4,600 per mile for
the first 50 m'les commencing at Bute
Inlet; from the eud of tne first 5o
miles to Quesnelle, about 150 miles,
they get $4,000 a mile and from Quesnelle to Yellowhead Pass they get
$4,500 per mile. The mileage grant
is payable at the eud of each 20 miles
of railway constructed. The company
also get 30,000 acres per mile iu Westminster, Lillooet and Cariboo districts. Tbe land granted is not subject to provincial or municipal  taxa-
GRAND FOMS BOARD OF TRADE
Yesterday might properly be designated as Chinese day in Grand Forks.
The Board of Trade held two sessions, one in the afternoon and oue
at night, the latter lasting till nearly
11 o'clock.
More and more the citizens of this
section are realizing tbe enormity of
the Chinese plague. The immediate
cause ol the present agitation is due
to the complaints of the hoticulturists
aDd agriculturists. Tbey foresee disaster to their interests unless something is done to check this invasion
and absorption of the vegetable market.
At yesterday's board of trade meeting; both afternoon and evening, after
business pertaining to board matters
had been disposed of, the Chinese
question was taken up and thoroughly
discussed in its various phases, the
unanimous opinion being "The Chinese must go;" not in Dennis Kearney style, but by legitimate  methods.
While it was realized that if permitted and encouraged the Chinamen
would absorb not only the vegetable
and Iruit growing and vending industries, but also the domestic and laun
dry business, it was thought wise to
take one step at a time. With this
idea in view a plan of operation was

is fouud impracticable, and so reported to the government, tbe contract is
null and void.
SEATTLE ELECTION.
Seattle, March  5.—At  11  o'clock
last night Humes had 500 majority out
of 3500 votes counted.   It  is  safe  to
eliminate the Chinese from agricultural pursuits. The plan is tbe establishment of a public market for the
sale of all farm products, including
wood, hay, and cereals. In the afternoon a resolution was adopted asking
the city council to take this matter
up by procuring a suitable piece of
ground in a convenient locality, and
6et it apart for a market place, setting
up tbeieon scales for bulk weights.
Then pass bylaws governing tbe market management. It is thought that
by this course, white people would
uot thus publicly patronize the Chinese vegetable and fruit venders, as
the sentiment sustaining tbe market
would also lose to John Chinaman
his customers.
,11 most eastern cities markets are established for tbe convenience of bath
buyer and seller, and no merchant is
this section. As delegate to tbe Associated Boards of Trade he had met
there a gentleman who wasengaged in
traveling and lecturing, illustrating
his lectures with stereopticon views.
Mr. Smith said this gentleman bad informed him that if he would procure a
dozen or so good views of Grand Porks
and its surroundings these views
would be used in his lectures on British Columbia in the east. Appropriate descriptive matter might be furnished therewith. A committee was
appointed to procure the same.
Recognizing the great benefit to this
community of the construction of the
Republic & Grand Forks railway by
local enterprise, the board thought it
w ould be appropriate to in some degree give expression to such recognition by tendering the promoters
thereof a complimentary banquet on
Saturday, April 5th, when it is expected the entire line will have been
completed and open for business. A
committee of seven was appointed to
arrange for the same.

THURSDAY, MARCH 6, 1902
Since the Chinese question is on
the local tapi-> with both feet, a summarization of the conclusions of the
Chinese Commission report now before the Dominion parliament may
not be out of place. The conclusions
cover 42 pages typewritten, and the
whole report 940.   These conclusions
dangerous to the industrial peace of
the community  where   they  reside,
j spend little ot their money, and t.ade
chiefly with their own people.   The
commissioners believe it is impossible
for the province of British Columbia
to take its place and  part in tbe Dominion unless its population  is  free
from any taint of a servile class  not
imbued with a sense of duties and  responsibilities appertaining to citizenship.   The estimated white population
of British   Columbia   is  129,000, and
16,000 Chinese.    The  commissioners
point out that British laws recognize
that aliens can  be   kept  out of the
count y, especially if as a class they
are undesirable.   The commissioners
quite approve the views of the legislature of British Columbia, alleging the
probability of a great disturbance to
the economic conditions of the province and of grave injury being caused
to the working  classes  by the large
influx of laborers from China.   The
commission find   that the capitation
tax at $100   iB ineffective and inadequate.   They are of opinion  that the
further immigration of Chinese laborers into Canada ought  to be prohibited, and   in the   mean time that the
capitation tax should   be  raised   to
$500.   Messrs. Clute  and   Foley recommend   that   the    capitation     tax
should be raised at once,  while Commissioner   Mann   recommends   that
ization will be revived and eventually
have a membership composed of representatives from every important city
and town in Canada. Yesterday the
executed committee, and a general
meeting was called for the appointment of a chairman and secretary and
to draft a programme lor this morning's meeting. Hon. Senator Tempie-
man and Messrs. T. Earle, M P., A.
C. Khm r elt hnd C. Li. Lugrin, of
Victoria, arc 111 attendance as Britit-h
Columbia's delegates.
may be briefly stated as follows:
The farming community ia British ' $300 should be imposed for two years,
Co'.utnbia, excepting only the large and if a prohibitive treaty be  not ob-
that period
land-owners who rent their lands to
the Chinese, favor exclusion. The
manager of the New Vancouver Coal
company, the largest exporter of coal,
favors exclusion, Hon. James Dunsmuir, president of another colliery, fa-
v >rs higher restriction and the enforcement of the Natal act. The general manager ol the Wellington colliery lavors unrestricted immigration.
Two of the principal exporters of
lumber favor exclusion, In the shingle business Chinese are employed in
considerable numbers, aud are regarded as neefssary to tbe trade. The
Chinese immigration is not likely to
seriously affect the industry, as there
are sufficient Chinese now in the
coun'rv to carry on the busiuess. As
cooks and assistants in hotels, the
Chinese are regarded favorably by
their employers. However, if they
were excluded, a better class of men
would become available lor these positions. In domestic service they are
considered very valuable as servant
girls are not easily to be had. The
commissioners are of opinion that the
interests of the country are not promoted by unduly stimulating an unlimited supply of cheap labor.
In unskilled labor the Chinese, by
working at a lower wage, bar out
white labor. The constant presence
of the Chinese is a real danger to the
existence of white workingmeu. He
becomes dissatisfied, and in many
cases leaves the province, or if he remains advises his friends not to come.
The fact is established that white laboring men cannot compete with the
Chinese and decently support their
families. The decision is reached that
the Chinese keep out immigrants who
would become permanent citizens and
create conditions inimical to labor and

Tho Htv of Columbia is situated
n»ar the junction of the North Porks
of the Kettle river with the main Kettle river, and is distant about 800
miles east of Vancouver.
The natural situation of the oity for
beauty Is not excelled in Ameriea. A
verdure clad and flower-bespangled
rolling prairie, traversed bv a river of
bright, sparkling waier, fringed with
forest trees and surrounded by mountains, fortfilna a charming combination of pictnresqnesnessand grandeur
The Columbia A Western railway,
which was constructed by the Canadian Pacific Railway company, has its
station, freight warehouse and vards
in the center  of Columbia,  and the
Vancouver, Victora A Eastern Railway company, has located its depot,
freight sheds and yards along the east
line of the corporation, thus giving
the eity connections with two transcontinental lines
The Canadian Pacifle railway company has large interests in the oity,
having selected the site o-i account of
the snoeriir natural advantages as a
railwav centre,
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 enjovabl".
Thro'l'tnut the Kettle River valley
there is an extent «f fertile agricultural land, part of which is no.v being cultivated. 1
Apples, plums, pears, prunes, cherries and all the small fruits grow
abundantly. The valley surrounding
Columbia, divided into small f rttit and
vegetable farms, will sustain a large
population.
Huilding material is plentiful in the
district. Lumber can be procured at
fair prices, and briok lime and stone
of good quality can always be obtained when required.
The mining interests are of the first
importance to this oountry, and will
do much to build up Columbia. Large
mineral lodes have been discovered
throngh the mountains adjacent to
the city, and what were mere prospects a short time since are now large
paying mines.
Water la 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 oonverter
—the most modern and perfeot plaut
of the kind in America—employing
hundreds of men, is contiguous to the
oity,
Owing to the fine climate, the central situation, the beautible environments, the bright prospeots 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 city in the interior.
