 I  t*  I  NUMBEE 43.  AINSWOETH, BEITISH   COLUMBIA, WEDNESDAY, JULY 6, 1892.  TEN CENTS  THE   LITE   HONOR ABLE   J OH IS    KORSON.  Hon. Jc������hn Robson, premier of British Columbia, died in London at G p.nu, June 29th. The  cause was blood-poisoning, due to an injury to  one of his fingers. Only about four weeks ago  thepremier left Victoria for England to complete  the details of the arrangement for bringing into  effect a scheme for Crofter immigration to British Columbia. On his arrival at Queenstown he  cabled to his colleagues here that he was in excellent health aud spirits, and later another  message was received from London containing  no tidings of illness. The first intimation of his  illness was received by Joseph Hunter, M. P. P.,  his son-in-law, who immediately cabled for full  particulars.  The news that the hon. John Robson, Premier  of British Columbia, was on his death-bed in  London, Eng., was received shortly before 3  o'clock, yesterday by a private telegram. After  the lapse of an hour, and much anxious waiting  for more news, word was received that the Premier had passed away at 6 pan. Sorrow of the  most deep and profound nature was expressed on all sides at the sad intelligence, and,  without delay, flags were hung half-mast on the  government aud public buildings and hotels as a  mark of respect for the dead statesman.  It has been known to many of mr. Robson's  intimate friends for a year past that his health  was rapidly failing, and that in the near futifre  he would have to retire from active political  life. For months he had not beeu able to write,  and his physical e*ra*ii#r>tt wlis such as to cause  great alarm to his friends. It' was thought,  however, that rest and a change of climate  would restore him to his old-time vigor.  The honorable gentleman wiio has just passed  away v was the son of mr. John Robson of Sarnia,  Ont., a native of Scotland, who emigrated to  Canada in 1820, and settled iu Lanark, Perth  county. Hon. mr. Robson was born at Perth  on March 14th, 1824. In April. 1854, he married  Susan, daughter of captain John Lungworth, of  Goderieh, Out. He came to British Columbia  early in 1859, accompanied by mr. C. G. Major,  of Westminster, since whicli time he has been  closely indentified with the history of the province. Both came out through tl^e gold excitement, and commenced .mining, at Hill's bar,  Yale. They afterwards - settled in New Westminster, which at that time was only a small  mining town, where they did much rough work,  taking contracts to clear land.  In 1860 mr. Robson and some of his friends  bought out the'Westminster Times, a newspaper  published by inr. L. McLure, mr. Robson taking  charge:'as manager and editor. Under his management the name of the paper was changed to  the British -.Columbian, and its publication continued in Westminstep.iintil 1867, when the seat  of government was removed from Westminster  to Victoria.    Mr. Robson then moved the plant  t   V era ul started a paper in.opposition to  the impel' aseditor-m-cniet. vv���������ct,.,in  III afterwards became a resident of ^���������������M,n,n-  .

While living in New Westminster he was a  justice of peace and a lieutenant in the home  rifle volunteers,  The career of hon. John Robson in British  Columbia is one full of interest and so wrapt  up with the progress of the province that his  history here is practically the history of the  Province itself. In a speech delivered in the  mperial Opera House in Vancouver on the 20th  of May, 1890, a short time prior to the last  provincial election, the honorable gentleman  was prevailed upon by his many friends to give  a sketch of his career in the province by way of  introducing himself to the citizens of Vancouver, the great majority of whom were entire strangers to him. It was, perhaps, the  largest   political   gathering   ever neld   in   the  Erovince and was the first meeting of the kind  e had addressed in the city since the fire.  Some of the reminiscences recalled then in"  reference to his early life here, will be of interest at this time. After some introductory remarks, mr. Robson proceeded as follows:  **I came to British Columbia in June, 1859,  with a very bad attack of the gold fever.   Upon  arriving here I went up to Hill's Bar, which at  that time was the most celebrated bar in the  province, the one which was the main cause of  the great excitement of '58, and the,great. rjish  to British Columbia in'58 and'59. J.  went to  'work on the upper end of the bar.   Three and  a half million nad been taken out of the' bar  before 1 got there, so that there wasn't very  much left.   After two months' w6rk*������I"fauie to  the  conclusicui^thak t&ere were<4more certain  and, perhaps; more easy ways of. making money  than by digging for it in the ground.   I may  say that before I came to British Columbia I  had been 15 years in commercial life, so that  handling a pick and shovel came pretty hard on  me.   Having yielded to the conviction that gold  mining was not the most certain way of acr  cumulating wealth, I then took up the axe and  went into the forest and made shingles, and cut  cordwTood for over a year.   While engaged in  that business I was up the Fraser river about  Hope and Yale.    Then I came to Westminster,  which was at  that time a little hamlet, surrounded by a dense forest and started in there  with a shovel and axe, taking small contracts  for cleaning   lots,   grading   streets,  &c.     You  see I turned my attention to, honest Labor.    I  don't mean to suggest that I wa-s engaged in  anything dishonest  before; I hope I was not.  By a slip of the axe, when I was cutting some  brush overhead, I sent the corner of it into iny  left foot and was laid up for 6 weeks.   While  lying on th^ broad of my back waiting for my  foot to get better, some of the leading people in  New   Westminster at that time, .among them  the late mr. Homer, member of the house of  commons for Westminster,  came to nie  and  suggested that I should start a newspaper.    I  ought"to say that there was a newspaper there  then, but the course pursued by that paper was  very distasteful to the leading people of the  place,' and they came to nie and said they would  buy the paper if I  would undertake to run it.  After considerable hesitation I consented to do  so, and in  1861 was established the British Columbian newspaper.    I published that paper for  some 10 years.    1 mention some of these things  because * I  think that the idea has been circulated among newcomers that  I  have   always  beeu an official, naturally an office seeker, that  I was not a person  who had any sympathies  with the people, and particularly* the" working  people,    I mention these incidents too, to show  you that'I commenced iuy career iii this province as a  workingman, arid  the circumstance  which  led   to my laying down  the   pick and  shovel and taking up the pen.    British Columbia was a crown colony at that time, and was  ruled by officials from Downing street.    I took  up'the cause of the people as well as I could in  the paper as against the ruling element at that  time, because*thepeople who-'ruled at.that time  looked upon the common  people as unlit for  consideration at all    They were the> rulersand  the people should bow down and serve them.  In conducting that paper I had to handle the  then ruling powers without gloves.   I had to  strike riant and left and strike hard too;   The  result wfsVat I brought the official element  down  noon  me  with   a  vengeance.     1   was  Kd S the district of New Westminster to  represent it in the executive council  in 1866  wnteh  was held at  the camp, of Sapperton.  Such was the extent of the enmity towards me,  that on my way from the camp, while coming  Song a r>ad tnat led through a small forest  between the camp and the city, a great stout  fellow? by the name of Smith, who was hired  bv the official members of the house, concealed  himself in the woods and sprang upon me as I  nassed knocked me down and left me lying in  Every baa state with several contused wounds  on my bead including a serious scalp wound.  He was acting on the instructions ot the officials1>.Hefmcken, who left the camp some  i0 minn ;S after me' found ,ine lying on ^e  roadiu that state.   He bad me brought hf������ne  andIn y wound* attended to.    I was shortly  after thrust into prison on account of my actwn  in discussing and  criticizing the acts ol  cne  officials X charge laid against me being con-  femnt of courtf *ko doubt there are Some of;.  mv old triends and acquaintances  here  who  read   in    he British Columbian of that date,  articles which I wrote, which were styled "A  Voice ft^nf the Dungeon."

WHAT   DOES   IT   AMOUNT   TO.  < It seems to be the fate of mining countries  like ail others to have alternate periods of excitement and reaction.   But as the excitement  is generally keener in a mining community the  reaction is more speedily felt.   The temperature  of a mining country is always fluctuating about  a fixed point,  its real value, and whatever it  moves above or below that poiut may, in most  cases, be put down to rumor and excitement.  How often the Silver King lode aud the Toad  mountain camp as a whole have disappeared in  smoke during the Jast 3 years, everyone in the  country  knows; and  yet they are stilL there  ������,3large ai life and as healthy.   It has been so  also at Ainsworth times without number, and  Slocan has lately had its fh'st experience of this  ,    sort.    The  basis on which disparaging reports  about the Slocan got about is worth while investigating,   Judge Bond of Seattle, a wealthy  capitalist, found, on visiting that country, that  he had been bilked, and came out of it ui a critical  frame of mind.   But   in   spite   of   what  judge Bond has been reported as having thought  and said about the country, we Tiave the  best  authority for stating that he never  wished to  giv^ anyone the  impression  that   the   Slocan  country had not great prospects before it.    Another gentleman, mr, W. Davidson, has been represented as having > given the Slocan a black  ^ye.'   On mr. Davidson's own authority we can  saythat his opinion (>f Slocan is most enthusiastic.;   Which either proves that nir. Davidson is  unstable as water and his  opinion no  .    having, or else that rumor has grossly  misrepresented what he, said about the coup try.  Rumors always find ill conditioned and disappointed men to give them currency.    Numbers  of prospectors have come in to find that the immediate vicinity of the mines has all been located.    We heard of one man who was  leaving the country because, having come in with  500 licenses in his pocket and the intention of  acquiring   the   whole   district   for   himself. he  found that he could locate  nothing  within a  day's journey of the Kaslo trail.    This gentleman   has  our  deepest sympathy.    It is easy of  course  to lament the law that allows this over-  location. But the same thing happened on Toad  mountain under, a different law 4 years ago and  now a rich crop of .old and battered stakes may  be found'there,'the solitary   memorials of men  who -were  foolish enough   to  waste   time and  money  staking claims irrespective  of quartz or  ���������mineral.-    Men who have come into West Kootenay   had   better make   up their   minds whether  they  are  here to. stop, or not.

SEIZIKE   OF   THE   COQIITLAM.  Some excitement and indignation was caused  in Victoria and Vancouver by the news which  reached those ports, on Friday July 1st, of the  seizure, at Port Etches, or New Chuck Harbor,  in western "Alaska,' on June 22nd last, bv the U.  S. cruiser Oorwin, of the supply steamer Coquit-  latn,   which had been chartered hy the Sealer's  Association  of Victoria to take supplies up to  the sealing schooners aud bring back the catch  of skins.   The Coquitlam, with her crew of 16  men  and Captains  Grant and   Kelly,   agents  of   the   Sea lei's   Association,   were "taken   to  Sitka,   where they are yet held.   The offence  alleged  as the reason for the seizure is that the  vessel  had  violated (he United States revenue  laws, by discharging cargo into another foreign  vessel  within twelve   miles   of   the American  shore.   The commander of the Coquitlam maintains that he is free from any violation of law,  aud that the seizure was illegal and unwarrantable.     The following details of the matter have  been obtained ftoiii an account brought down  by the steamer Queen which arrived at Nanaimo  from  Alaska^  on  Friday:   On  June 18th, the  Coquitlam reached Tonki Bay, Afognak Island,  and, on   the followiug day,  six of   the  sealing   schooners were   towed   out to   sea, provisioned,    and   their   skins   transferred.    The  Coquitlam then proceeded to Port Etches, were  she arrived on Wednesday, June22nd.   Captain  MeLelien,   of   the   Coquitlam,   sent   the  mate  ashore with a letter to the commander of any  American cruiser, asking if there was any objection  to  his coming in to get a supply of watei\  of which he was badly in need.    The mate found  no cruiser there, but 17 schooners, and the crews  of the latter stated that the men of war had left,  the last one, the  Yorktown, the American flagship, having gone-only the day before.  The Coquitlam  then entered the harbor, and  the captains of the schooners immediately asked  captain MeLelien  to "give thein their "supplies,-  alleging that there was, no danger to be incurred  by sttch a course.   This proposal" was declined  by   captain   MeLelien,  who arranged that he  would spend the day taking on .water, and on  the following day go out beyond the limit and  transfer  provisions   and   the   catch   of  skins.  About 1:30 p.m., the mail steamer Elsie came in  and anchored.   On hoard of her was an officer  of the revenue cutter Corwin, in disguise.   The  Corwin was lying in a small  harbor about  2  miles to the northward.    The Coquitlam  was  engaged in transferring coal from one hold to  the other in order to trim the ship, and not a  pound of her cargo was transferred.   The Elsie  left in the afternoon, and the  Corwin  shortly  afterwards came in. ?  A boat was lowered, and an officer and crew  boarded the 'Coquitlam,.-put men on guard at  thev hatches, and stopped all commmii cation between   the  vessel and  the sliore.    The officer  asked for and '.was- shown the ship's papers, and  professed muchsurprise at there being no manifest.    Captain  MeLelien  explained that   there  was no need of a manifest when a vessel cleared  for the-North Pacific ocean, as the Coquitlam  had  clone,  when   the' officer said that she had  discharged cargo in the harbor that day.   This  captain MeLelien emphatically denied, and the  officer; overhauling t he '.'logbook, said, pointing  to the entry showing that schooners had been  towed out of Tonki Bay:  '"'You had no business to  tow  vessels out of'American waters."  Ultimately,.he took off the papers and-logbook  aboard the (Corwin, leaving an officer in charge  of the Coquitlam.    Then captain Hooper, of the  Corwin,   sent   for captain   MeLelien;   who   returned  to  his  own   vessel with the statement  that the .Coquitlam was seized, and must go to  Sitka  the  next  morning  in   charge  of a prize  crew.    The Corwin then warned all the schooners to leave the harbor within 21 hours.  The  Coquitlain arrived at Sitka on June 26,  and   was  handed  over to the civil authorities,  who allowed the captain and crew to go ashore  but  not   to leave'..!he town.    Captain MeLelien  called upon the district attorney, and the U. S.  marshal,   and  was   told   that   several   charges  would be made against the vessel and those on  board,  but the one that would-be pressed was  tor discharging cargo and  taking in   sealskins  in   American   waters  -that   is,  withm 12 miles  from shore.    Meanwhile, the vessel is, of course,  detained at Sitka, and it appears probable that  her  owners   will  have  to give  bonds for   the  BRITISH   COLUMBIA  IRON  WO  General   Founders,   Engineers,   Boiler  Makers,  and  Manufacturers  of All  Classes of Machinery.
