Fernie which now owes its 'existence
to the works carried on liy this company.
There i- 1?prospective demand,' pro,
vided we obtain access   lu  the  American inaiket, as I shall hereafter  men
tion, for-1,000   to is   ot'  coal   per  day j
.within a year, an 1 in .three  years   we
expect to increase our output to about
0,000 tons  of  coal   per  day,   a   large
port ion p of  which   will   be  converted,
into coke in our ovens, and within five
years we expect to have  a   payroll   of
fully ^10,000 per day.   which   will  be
sufficient to maintain three  important
industrial centres in the coal  district.
All business men will at  once  1e.1l-
ize how important such a development'
will be   lo   the.  country, at  large,   as
mining camps are invariably extensive
consumers of supplies.     Not only .will
there  be   the 'direjt   employment    of
several  thousand   Canadian    winking
men, but a   new   and   most  extensile
demand will be created   for   the   products "rf  Canadian   factories   in    the
'east, and lhe food  supplies  from   the
western farms and cattle ranches.
ll is only fair to you, however, ��� to
state lhat the piesent demand of British Columbia for'coal and coke would'
not justify any such expendituies ai
we propose lo make. This is self
evident when 1 state that the piesenl
demand of,British Columbia"dues not'
exceed 1,000 tons'lif cod and coke, per
day, and we. cannot expect 1.this demand ,to increase iu the near, futtiie,
even under most favorable conditions,
so as lo juslify such expenditures.
In order that we 111 iv proceed with
this development,, it will be absolutely
i.rcessaty to secure access to lhe American nnrkets by a route : that will
put us in'a position . to successfully
compete with the coal and coke producers aheady in the field.    If, denied

PRESIDENT'S ADDRESS.
In congratulating you upon lhe success of the last year's operations, it
may he worth while to refer lo the.
erroneous ideas that haw gone abroad
with rcgird to the uianagpinriit .ind
coutrol of the Crow's Nest Pass. Coal
Company. We aie, in e\e.ry rc-pee',
a Canadian enlerprii-e, wilh a large
inaj irity of Canadian stockht I,lets,
, mnier Canadian emit ml Mid ulwi i^t:
ment, and aie ^i\ in,l; enip!o>. iiient to a
great force, of labor on Canadian soil.
AVn are developing C-niada's natural
resources in one- of tlie most im
poilant au.l econoiiiii; mineral-", and
are building up an immense Canadian
industry, which is bringing   wealth   t.o
access to the, American markets, except hy roundabout routes, if dehiye i
-in our operations by legislative obstruction, if prevented in any way
from cutting down lhe cost (,f production to tlie n-n lowest .possible iiihi-
giu, out success in the field will be
proportionately cramped, and ii will
be c]uile impossible to undertake, tlie
development, now proposed.
Recognizing, therefore, the necessity of obtaining c*irecl aces- to the
adjacent nnrkets of lhe United Slate-,
a-i application has been made, to pai-
ti-.nieiit by five of your direclois foi
a charier to build a i ail way from tin-
coal fields to the. boundary, whcie it. is
intended !n connect w ii h it spur line
from Jennings on' the Great Nuilliein
railway.
Tliis is simply tin etf'ort lo si cinvan

an almost unlimited inai ket ,1'or co.-il

from Kcvel.-tokc askingthat a higli
school be established in this city.
' The effect on lievelstoke of the
new school act was also discussed,
thc deputation pointing out that
Revolstoke-would he unfairly, treated in tlie matter of buildings' if they
had to go as at .present. In other
cities now .chool, buildings hrd
been erected, ivhevcas in Kevolstoke
tlte building accommodation was
not nearly sullicient and this city
would be handicapjied with liaving
to provide'a now building at the
start".,
It was a]-;o pointed out that the
new act would work hardship ' to
Revelstoke in another way. With
tho present attendance the grant
would be HO a head, but when, the
average attendance inerea.ed, by
another eight pupils that they
would only receive a,grant of $15 ii
head, thus losing $5 a head. Ministers promised to give thote. views
consideration.
The annual meeting of the company
was held on Wednesday when it.was

FRIDAY, MARCH 15, 1001.
For a license fee, of $5 a year,
and $2.50 for recording his assessment, a free miner caiv hold the1
mo.-t valuable prospect in British
Columbia against the world. Yet
'the calamity howlers ��� tell- us the
free miner is ruined hv taxation !
The unfortunate accident refer-;
red to iiintliis issuo is another, illustration of the necessity of a
, hospital for-Revelstoke. We trust
that a supremo effort will vet he
made by the people of this city to
secure for this' city such an institution.
SQUATTERS' RIGHTS.
We suggest to Mr. (ialliher, M.
P., that he make a supreme effort
to getc-.the difficulties cleared up in
regard to the .titles for thc land on
thc north'pide of. the C. P. R.. line
which is' held under '.'squatter's
right. , Either the Dominion should
give these settlers a titlc0. direct, or
it should require thc C. P. R. or
Mr. Farwcll to give them h title ut
the price which these settlers would
have paid the .Dominion. It is
only right,that men who' Acted in
good fait li, and have expended u
large sum in improvements, should
l��e honorably protectee! by the government from forfeiture' of their
rights or from the imposition of
being called upon to pay any price
which ��� townsitc speculators may
demand.

JOHN V. PERKS PROPRIETOR ��� ��� ��� ��� REVELSTOKE, B; G.
���I
The merchants of Revelstoke
would confer a great' boo.n on their
employees by agreeing .unanimously
to close at <i p. in. beginning with
the spring months. If all would
.unite in'doing it there would he no
hardship to anyone, and the same
business would be done.
It now,transpires that Jim  Hill,
���of the Great Northern, holds 30 per
cent, stock in the Crows Nest Coal
Company, and that this stock was
transferred to 'him as a business proposition on   a jsuaranleed
��� purchase of ihe output of the mines
of (5000 tons a day. ' The directors
of the coal company  say   they  are
' prepared to enter into any contract
required by the government to sup-
, ]>ly British Columbia wants in
preference to shipments over the
Great Northern.
CONCILIATION AND
ARBITRATION.
We congratulate the minister of
railways and canals, Hon. A. 0.
Blair, on the fair spirit which' lie
showed to the labor members and
delegates from the Federated Tyades
and Labor Council, in acceding to
their request to establish .what is
practically a board of conciliation
and arbitration to settle the difficulties between the official* of' the
Intercolonial, on-the one hand, and
the employees on the other. This
is thc thin end of the wedge for tlie
establishment by law of hoards of
conciliation and arbitration
throughout the Dominion.That i.s
the true way to settle labor difficulties/and when it is .generaliy
adopted, industrial crisis caused by
strikes and lock-outs will become, a
thing of the past.

LOCAL TAXATION.   ���     '
The system of taxation of thc
province could stand amendment
with much advantage to the public
interest. .Here in Revelstoke we
have had absentee townsitc owners
as the Smelter Company, ""J. 'A.
Mara," and A. S. Farwell falling
over one another in their efforts to
secure a big hold on the town.
Neither the syndicate iior these individuals have put forth any effort to
advance the interests of the town.
That ha? heen' left to tlie people
here, who have been called  to  pay
excessive prices for their lots. The where theymake that wealth.
people coming into Revelstoke and : These men will go to the govern-
adding to its population arc in-1 ment and will ask them to make
creasing the value of these proper- [ roads and trail- for their benefit,
tie?���not the absentee owners. Now ;���'��iid when ihey arc asked to con-
we should like to see  a.  system   of
contend that, while the system of
levying the tax is capable, of improvement, the principle of such a
tax is just. The mines of British
Columbia have made millions for
investors. 'The Le Koi deal for
instance put soniiMiiillions into the
pockets of the English promoters.'.
Now under the system ' of taxation
hitherto pursued, those, who have
benefitted so immensely by investment in thc mineral wealth of
British Columbia have not paid
their fair share of the taxation of
the country.
Though the- taxation derived
from mines forms the largest source
of the.income of'the government,
that income has, mainly been derived from prospectors and others
who take out miners licenses, antl
record claims and .assessments, and
not from the  more wealthy  mine-
���* '      .'    .
owners.    Who will  say  that   it  is
just that the pioneers, and prospectors who open up the'country
should bear the burden of taxation,
and that the capitalists who' suc-
ceed them are to escape almost,
scot-free ? Yet that, is what certain
gentlemen" who come from other
parts to exploit the mineral resources of tho country have the
audacity, to ask.
It is pretty certain, that the men
who marie so much .money ^nut of
the Le Roi had not in thc aggregate contribute:! more than $5000
to the revenue of the province, Yet
under .the system oi taxation in
vogue in England they would have
to pay in taxation some two and a
"half to five per cent, of the income
they derived from that transaction,
as against the miserable.pittan.ee
they were required to contribute to
the trear-ury of the country from
which they derived their wealth.
The person- who derive these
benefits ought to expect. an;.l should
contribute a fair share of their
profits to thc revenue of the country
taxed for what is s|ont in the tni-
plovnicut of labor, and if the cost
of mining, freight ing and Miiolting
were deducted, and llic lax levied
on the pro.its. it would be a perfectly legitimate tax.   '   , ���

In the absence of the president.  Mr. IT.'iggen. vice-presie!ent. occupied the. chair.  The. invitation was fully  discussed but, as   it   was .understood   that  the object was specially to urge the  extension from the Great  Northern  to   connect   with   the Crows (Nosl  coal fields (he members of the board  generally, expressed   the    opinion  that they could not'well fake action  in regard'to a proposal that   might  have serious effects on   the   mining  and smelling industry nf the Koot-  cnays. unless hedged iu   by   proper  safe-guards on the part of the go\-  ernment, and in the absence of  information   which    should     satisfy-  members as to what the effect of the  scheme was likely to be   the   board  ressolved to decline  the  invitation,  or to take any action in 'the matter,  ft was con-ielered that the question  was one on which   the  government  should obtain   the  fullest   information before granting the charter in  order to prevent tlie coal and   e'eike  supply   heing   diverted  alsdutely  from the British Columbia smelter;,,  Messrs.
