Leader  of   the   Opposition
Tells of the Leading
Features
Lively Session and Some
Important Legislative
Matters
J. A. Macdonald, K.C., and leade
of the orposition in the provincial
legislature, has returned to Rossland
from the coast. To a Miner representatives he gave the following as
the leading features of the session
which has just closed:
"Tbe session just ended was in
many ways a remarkttble ons. The
action of the lieutenant-governor in
reserving his assent to the immigration bill last year was much resented
by those opposed to Asiatic immigra
tion, and I may here state that the
great majority of the people of all
classes in this province are opposed
to Buch immigration.
"A very lively debate arose in the
house over the resolutions introduced
by Mr. Oliver and the member for
Nanaimo, calling for the impeachment of the lieuteuant-governor
Theso resolutions, however, were
ruled out of order by the speaker,
and the object uincd at was not attained,
"The Natal Act also gave rise to a
lively debate. The opposition contended that under our constitution
the legislature could not effectively
exclude either tne Japanese or the
Chinese, but supported tbe measure,
believing that it would apply to nil
other Orientals, with the possible
exception of the Hindus, with re
sptct to which there might be some
doubt. The act, therefore, passed
with the assent of both sides of thc
house. Since then, however, the
courts have decided that the view
taken by the opposition wan correct.
The decision, however, may bo appealed io the privy council, and a
final decision obtained on tnis much
vexed question.
"The civil service bill gave rise to
strenuous opposition to that part of
it which proposed to give pensions
to retired civil servants. The opposition took the Bland that civil servants were not entitled to any different treatment than other classes
in the community, and that if pensions were to be given at all some
system of old age benefit should be
inaugurated that would make provision for the sick and helpless.
The government was finally compelled to withdraw the pension
clauses of the bili.
"A number of other bills of more
or less interest passed the house. On
the whole, the session was a most interesting and lively one, and result
ed in the passing of several useful
measures.
"It may be of special interest to
the people of Rossland to know that
I have the promise of the finance
minister, backed by Dr. Young, the
provincial secretary, that Rossland's
claim to a larger share of the taxes
paid by the mines in this city will
receive special consideration. The
government has been made to Bee
that by reason of tbe manner in
whioh the province derives revenue
rom the mines, Rossland hns beei
placed in a most unfavorable position. We do not object to the province obtaining a legitimate revenue
from tho mines, but when the city
is deprived from the right, which
other cities enjoy, of taxing the real
estate, plant and machinery of its
chief sndustry, so tnat the province
may receive a large revenue under
the name of mineral tax, we say we
are unfairly treated, and nre placed
with regard to taxation on a basis altogether difterent from that upon
which the other large cities of the
province are placed.
"By the Grand Trunk Pacific bill
the province has removed the only
obstacle to immediate construction
of the railway from Prince Rupert
easterly. The work in the north, I
am fully confident, will save us from
the hard times which threaten other
parts of the continent."

HELD FOR TRIAL
.Si
Preliminary Hearing Here
Yesterday
to the construction Of a   boom  for
Ihe   protection of the Fouith street!
bridge.    All the members were pres
ent with the exception of Aid. Mc
Galium.   The  finance    committee
recommended the payment of the Cedio, the Dynamiter, Had His
usual number of accounts and the
enforcement of the resolution in regard to city employees obtaining
orders from the city clerk before
purchasing goods. Approved. A
number of tenders for the boom
nt the Fourth street bridge were received, that of Wm. McNee for 8148
being the lowest, and tliat gentleman was awarded the contract.
Serious Runaway
A lively runaway, in whicli Jeff
Davis, the general merchant, sustained serious injuries, occurred on
First street early yesterday morning.
Mr. Davis and a diiver were just
starting out on a trip up the North
Fork, and in going down the street
in a livery rig, the horses were
frightened by the tongue of the
buggy either breakingj or falling to
the ground. The team immediately
became unmanageable, and getting
beyond the driver's control, dashed
down the street at a terrific Bpeed.
When opposite the postoffice Mr.
Davis was thrown from the rig with
such violence that the fall dazed him
for some time. Friends soon arrived on the scene and ministered to
his needs. An examination of his
injuries by Dr.Kingston revealed the
fact that the left arm was broken at
the wriBt, and the humerus had also
been broken close to the shoulder
joint. It will take some weeks before he fully recovers from his
wounds. Tho driver escaped uninjured.
In a Critical Condition
On Tuesday morning last Mrs. Geo.
Taylor received a telegram from the
Mayo Brothers' hospital in Rochester,
Minn., stating thnt her husband had
been operated on for what had been
diaftnosed us ulceration of the atom
The telegram also snid thnt the
stomach hud been found to bo cun-
oarous und that Mr. Taylor was in n
critical condition, and ad viced Mrs.
Taylor to come to her husband ut
once. Not desiring to muke the long
journey if there wus no hope of her
husband living until she reached him,
Mrs. Taylor wired for further information. Dnter she received a wire suy-
ing thnt Mr. Taylor would tie able tu
go home, and on Thursday morning
she started Rochester.
The Mayo brothers, who own n hospital in Rochester, nie reputed to be
twojof tho most skillful surgeons in the
world, and their patients come from
every quarter of the globe. It is
stated last year they operated on
4500 people, and only lost 2 per cent
of the cases. James J. Hill, the
Great Northern magnate, paid them a
$10,000 check for an operation. While
their charges from the rich are said to
be high, it is also a fact that a washerwoman could go to their hospital and
get the same treatment as a millionaire gratis. In other words, their
charges are guided by their patients'
pocketbooks.
A rolling stone accumulates no dust.
It is reported on good authority
that the C.P.R. officials have selected a site on the southwest corner of
Winnipeg avenue and D maid
street for the new residence for the
company's roadmaster, J. M. Cameron, who arrived in the city some
time ago from Nelson. A number
of cars of lumber and other mateiial
have already arrived here, and it is
expected that the work of erecting
the building will be commenced in
a few days.
John Stewart Dick, a native of
Scotland, died at the boarding house
if Mrs. V'iii. Graham last Monday
night, after a short illness. The
funeral was held Wednesday afternoon. Deceased wns a single man,
and had reached Ihe ripi age of 80
years. He was one of the old-timers
of the valley, and for the past ten or
twelve years he has been living al
the Graham home. He owned a
ranch down in the Colville valley.
He had no relatives in this country.
The case of 1< red Bonner and Fred
McClure, arrested last week on u
charge of burglary, wns tried before
Judge Cochrane in the police court
last Monday. The action against
McClure was dismissed- on the request of the chief of the police,
there being no evidence to connect him with the crime. The
case against Bonner was not proven
and the prisoner was discharged.
The case grew out of the loss, by
theft or otherwise, by James Tenant
of $270.
Peter Nelson, a city patient,
died at the Grand Forks hospital on
Tuesday last, and was buried from
Cooper's undertaking establishment
yesterday afternoon. Deceased wns
a native of Sweden; was a recent arrival in the city, and so far as known
had no relatives in this part of thc
country.
On Monday lust Judge Cochrane
rendered a decision in the case of
Tom O'Farrell vs. Wm. McNee,
whicli was argued in the police
court last week. This was an action for commission of $100 on sale
of property, complainant testifying
that he had been appointed by defendant as agent, defendant denying. The action was dismissed with
costs. Sutton for plaintiff, K. Miller for defendant.
W. A. Williams, assistant superintendent of the Granby smelter,
has installed a new automobile in
the pleasure department of his unofficial capacity. To use an agricultural phrase, the machine is a
peach. If it is efficiently handled,
the owner should have no difficulty
in preventing the population of the
city from growing at too rapid a
rate.

Better and stronger than ever is
the Beggar Prince Comic Opera
company. All the old favorites are
still with the company. Everything
new and up to date. The comic
opera "Circus Clown" will le presented for one night only, Wednesday, April 1st. Seats on sale at
Woodland's drug store.
For Sale—Two brass chandeliers;

There seems to be the best of reasons for anticipating in the appearance of the Beggar Prince Opera
company at the Grand Forks opera
house on Wednesday, April 1st, for
one night, an operatic event of more
than ordinary interest and merit.
The management has displayed
much care and good judgment not
only in selecting the company, but
in the manner in which tho production is staged and costumed, so that
our amusement lovers may safely
look forward to a musical treat.

Francisco Cedio, accused of blowing up the Canadian hotol nt Niagara,
a short ilistanco north of this city,
on the 18th duy of November, 11)0(5,
and who was recently arrested in Suit
Lake City by Chief of Povinciul Police Davitt and taken to Nelson, was
brought to Grnnd Forks yesterday
from the latter city by Mr. Davitt,
and between the west-bound and east-
bound C.P.R. passenger trains he Was
given his preliminary hearing before
Judge Cochrane. He was bound
over for trial at the next assizes.
The grand jury at Greenwood last fall
returned an indictment against him.
Chief Davitt returned to Nelson last
night with the prisoner.
The crime of which Ceilio is accused
was one of the most atrocious ever
perpetrated in the province. Besides
completely wiecking the hotel, Louise
King, the 18-year-old daughter of
the proprietor, was literally blown to
atoms. Nine other inmates of the
house were also moie or less injured
and maimed.
Cedio, as he sat in the court-room
yesterday, heavily manacled, had the
appearance of a wild animal brought
to bay. His eyes were ever alert, nnd
scanned closely the occupants of the
room. In general, he bore a close resemblance to the typical Italian
navvy. His face was covered by a
week's growth of beard; hair unkempt;
no apparent pains about persoual
cleanliness, nnd wearing a suit of
clothes that had outlived its best days
of usefulness. Tliere was nothing in
common between Cedio and the average murderer, who is usually dressed
in tho height of fashion, fed on tho
best the market affords, and holds
daily receptions to the ladies, who
shower bouquets and billet d'aiiinur
on him. Bnt perhaps Cedio has not
yet reached this stage in his career.

;,ir*SU        Grand Fort., B. C. Minister  of Interior Lacked
Authority  to   Give
Orders
Governor-General Is the Only
Person Who Can Exclude
Orientals
Vancouver, March 24.—The Inst
shred of special legislation directed
against Oriental immigration into
the Dominion was disposed of this
morning, when Mr. Justice Clement
declared the Dominion order-in-
conncii against immigrants coming
from lands otber than of birth or
naturalization, would not hold water.
Tbe test was made on behalf of the
142 Hindus who bave been detained
for weeks in tbe local detention
sheds awaiting a decision, and who
are now released. Immigration
Officer Monroe says there is now no
method of keeping out Orientals
save through the general immigration act governing paupers, diseased
or the insane classes. Local exclusion leaders are greatly wrough up
over the decision, as reports indicate
that as a result the Japanese invasion from Hawaii may begin afresh,
and it is certain that the liners from
the   Orient   will   bring 	
Hindus now awaiting transhipment
at Hongkong. Mr. Justice Clement's
decision is founded on the words of
the order-in-council whereby the
governor-general delegates powers to
the minister of the interior, which is
declared illegal. D. G. MacDonell
fought the case for the government,
and has wired to Ottawa for directions concerning an appeal.
Mr. Justice Clemenl also granted
an order for the discharge of the 142
Hindus held in the C.P.R. sheds
under the Dominion order-in-council. He took the ground that parliament gave to thegovernoi-geneial
in council dower to "keep out any
particular class of immigrants, but
had not given the governor general
the right to delegate that power to
any subordinate, no matter how high
he might stand, yet the order expressly stated that the minister of
the interior might at his discretion
prohibit the entry of any particular
class.

Preliminary Report From the
Dominion Department
of Mines
Total Value of the Mineral
Production in 1907 Was
$86,182,477
A preliminary report on the mineral production of Canada for 1907
lias been issued by the department
of mines at Ottawa. This report,
which is subject to revision, shows
a total value of *I8G,182,477. While
the perusal of these reports for a
nuniher of years shows considerable
fluctuations in the production ofthe
various minerals, the steady progress of the mining industry is seen,
and its growing importance in the
economy of the country is realized.
When it is remembered that there
are vast areas of land in different
parts of the country which have
never been prospected, although
many of them are believed to contain mineral deposits, and when it
is considered what has already been
done in a comparatively small part
of the territory within the boundary
of the Dominion, some idea can be
formed of the magnitude that the
mining industry will attain in the
future.
Ai new territory is explored, unexpected developments occur. Thus
a few years ago came the discovery
of the Yukon district, with a large
production of gold for a few yenrs
This was followed in turn by 1 In-announcement of the surprising richness of silver in the C'uhalt country.
With theso circumstances before ns.
it is not too sanguine a view■ tlmt
many other discoveries of equal or
even greater mineral wealth will he
made in various parts of Canada
Four years ago gold held  the   lirst

place as regards value of production
in the list of Canada's mineral product. But IttBt year it only occupied
the fifth place, and only fourth
among the metallic minerals. The
gold output of the Yukon has fallen
from '"22,275,000 in 1900 to $8,150,-
000 last year, the latter being less
than half the output for 1906. This
decrease was [partially compensated
for during ajfew years by an increase
in the production of gold in Hritish
Columbia, hut last year that also
showed a considerable reduction.
The total gold output for last year
was £8,264,756, Un the other hand,
laBt year's silver production in
creased by no less than 50 per cent
over that of the previous year.
Among the metallic minerals copper held the leading place, the output being 37,881,740 pounds, valued
at $11,478,644, an increase of $75s\-
170 over that of the previmis year.
In British Columbia, however, there
was a decrease on account of the
temporary suspension of work at
some of the niincs,but the deficiency
was more than made good by the
output in the Sudbury district.
There H'ciie several and important
variations in the price of copper during the year. In March the price
wis 25 cents per pound. 21 cents in
July, and a little over 13 cents in
October. Nickel was second on the
list of metallic minerals, being 21,-
189,793 pounds, with a value ol
89,686,407. This was nearly all
produced from the nickel-copper deposits of Sudbury. The production
of pig iron was 051,942 tons of 2000
pounds, with a value of {59,125,220.
Hut of this no less than 5-14,303 tons
were produced from imported ores.
I'he lead output was 47,505,000
pounds, valued at $2,532,836,
Tliere was no bounty paid for this,
iilthnugh the price fell so low in December that a claim for a subsidy
c mid have been made.
The chief mineral product for the
year was coul, the output being 10,
510,901 tons, with a value of §24,-
500,23s. Both asbestos at 82,482,-
984, and petroleum at 81,057,088,
exceeded the million dollar mark.
I'he total production of all minerals
i.i 1907 reached a value of no less
than 880,182,477, the greatest on
record, and comparing with one
valued at $79,057,308 in 1906.
The surest way to evaporate busi
iiess troubles is to give your stationery
die necessary talking qualities by
having it printed in u modern oflke
by competent workmen. Tlio .Sun
