This is  tlie result of the bi-monthly clean-up  at the Oyster-Criterion property of the  Great Northern Mines Limited. Mr.  Crilly says the ore body is improving  both in size and values.  Tlio plant of the Nickel Plate mine,  Hcdley, B.

A popular-  ity  of fifty years standing:  such  as, lias  been enjoyed by the ."Williams  Piano" '  is  the instrument's best recommendation '  and the  very lar-fe  shipments  recently  made Irom the factory  of the  William*  Piano Co.', Oshawa, of their  New Scale  Williams   pianos   to  every  part of the '  Dominion, as well as to England, Australia and New Zealand, speaks  well ,fora  popularity  which  has its  foundation  in  solid worth and public appreciation. _    <  Tlie New  Scale Williams  is a 'piano  which has been constructed along entirely *  new lines and possesses so many advantages over other makes that it is well -,  worth  while  one's calling  at  the  local  warerooms    to   examine, them.

Remarks., the Nelson Tribune :  The capitation * tax of $500 per  head on Chinese entering the province is effective after all, notwithstanding the'fact that 114 Chinese  enme over on the Empress liners  from China. Lt svas thought that  tliese Chinese svere'about to^ enter  the country .for the first'- time, and  that each 'would have .to pay .tlie  head tax. " This is not,the case, as  the Chinese have been .in -the  country- before and' returned .on  passports svhieh they, obtained before they ' returned 'from British  Columbia tb the Flowery Kingdom.  Some time ago the, Revelstoke  Board of Trade -requested , the  Railsvay, Commissioners to visit  British Columbia and enquire into  ���������the unjust conditions existing here  as regards railsvay rajes. ��������� We have  information that this request svill  be complied svith' and the commissioners svill be here as soon as they  complete their eastern business.'  The'hoard of trade should get their  information as complete as possible  and have it in good shape for presentation to the railsvay commissioners-on their arrival. .* In viesv  of tlie eonces'ions made to Nelson  as a distributing point the commissioners should have-no ililiiouliy  in ordering that Revelstoke be  placed in the same'position,if the  company persists in refusing to  make the concessions applied for.  SATURDAY, M -SY 7, 190-1.  Wanted, a railsvay policy as one  cannot be found. Apply to Premier  McBride and Co., Desperation  Cha'mbers, Victoria,' B. C.  The high credit in svhieh Canada  etatids under the Laurier government svas emphasized by Hon. W.  S. Fielding's .statement in the  'House of Commons, that dominion  treasury bonds are discounted  readily in London at T\ to 3 per  cent.  In granting a daily mail service  to Lardeau points the postmaslor-  general is rendering a service which  will be appreciated. The thanks  of the Lardeau are clue to W. A.  Galliher. M. P., for the thorough  manner in svhieh he has represented the requirements of that district.  The McBride government have  "broken faith over the opening of  the Lillooet con.-titiiency. ,Thcy  pledged themselvo.- to re-open that  constituency immediately after the  session if the legislature svould exempt the member for that district  for tlie irregularity in receivingpay  as road overseer while a member.  Nelson has been made a distributing point by the railsvay companies dividing the territory���������the  Canadian Pacific ancl Great  Northern. Nelson jobbers have advocated this for a couple of years,  hut it was not until active steps  were taken to bring the question  before the federal railway commission that the railways  came out of  TIN-: WAR.  The result of the first land battle  between the Japanese and Russians  cannot fail to 'have a  great  effect  on subsequent  stages  of  the   svar.  The Russian position, -which   they  considered  impregnable,  has been  successfully    stormed,    and     the  great Russian army of  30.000 men  driven by the Jap.-'as  chaff  before  the svind.      Russia   is   getting   a  handling  which  cannot  fail to be  beneficial to the future peace of the  great nations, and   whatever  danger  may   lurk  in the successes of  the   Japanese    arms   the   world's  svmpathy   is    with   them   in   the  salutary   lesson   they   are administering to Russia. *  business-like manner and the re';  suits of {the operation of the nesv  mill have been awaited svith interest, as"'they' would have sin  important bearing on tlie future  prospects,'of the extensive gold-  silver'cleposits of British Columbia.  No doubt the nesv ma linger,' Mr.  Ssvinriey,' will, have the damage re-'  paire'd as esirly-as possible and a'lh  hope'he'svill soon;, be rewarded by  satisfactory results-from the-important project lie has, in hand'.  The'.Silver Cup and Great Western  Companies deserve the best that  can-be got.;  IMPROVED SERVICE.  Traffic on the Okanagan lake'h'as  grosvn to such an extent that a  daily steamboat service is required.  The Aberdeen is barely able to  handle the grosving freight traffic,  and passengers and mails are often  delayed in transmission as a result.  The steamer York is lying at Okanagan Landing and is available in  case the Aberdeen cannot ,do the  svork. The fruit .-eason is coming  on when thousands of doilars worth  of fruit svill be shipped, and the  perishable varieties require a daily  service to avoid unnecessary loss to  the growers.  This is a case in svhieh the postal  department might svell consider  the public convenience hy increasing the mail subsidy sufficiently to  secure a daily service betsven Ok.-m-  a"an Landing and Pentieton.  THK SILVER CL'P.  The mining community expresses  its sympathy ^svith the osvners of  the Silver Cup mine in the serious  damage done: their property by  recent slides. The Silver Cup  Company has gone about its development and equipment in an  enterprising and at the same   time  - GOLD DREDGING. ' ,,  The nesvs svhieh,sve 'publish in  another column. of the success of  dredging'operations of the Fraser  river opens a.new field for-profitable'mining investments in British  Columbia. There are hundreds of  miles of gold-bearing river channels in the/province", and/no doubt  large sect.ions of these ss ill.prove  profitable to operate.

'There is  little'doubt-payable ground exists  on 'the Columbia at Carnes'c'reek  and , at Coldstream, 'but it i-a  question svhether boulders exist to  sufficient extent 'to prevent dredg-,  ing. Then on Coldstream, above  the rapids, to McCullough ancl  French creeks, there is every reason  to believe payable ground may be  found, ancl apart from any difficulty thai may exist from boulders,  the latter should bean ideal stream  fQr dredging.  "  BEHIND THIS TIMES.  The railway- equipment at Okanagan   Landing   on    the   S.   &   0.  branch is ssoefully out; of date.  There are no transfer barges for  handling cars on the lake; Conse-  quently everything has to be loaded  and unloaded by hand labor'between the steamer Aberdeen and  the railsvay. During the fruit  c-eason an enormous quantity of  perishable fruit has to be handled  in this svay, and svhile the officers  and   crew .of   the    steamer   take  easonablft care,' so much handling  cannot hut result in damage that  could be avoided svith up-to-date  facilities. The company "promised  last season to have up-to-date  docks and equipment arranged for  this year, but now we learn that  these improvements wi il not be  carried out at prc-ent. There is  considerable indignation in that  section a.- a re-ult.

INDIAN,RESERVES:  One of the curses of'-British 'Columbia is the large amount of  Indian reserves! It is ,right that  the native race should be provided,  for by reserves sufficient for their  maintenance, but as matters stand  the lands  so' reserved  tire","fsir ��������� in  i      ;'  uxcess'of requirements,  and   are a  serious block sigtiinst the progress  of the country.' There are. eleven  million acres of Indian reserves in  the province. These svere set aside  at a time svhen British Columbia  'svas regarded' as a 'useless sea of  mountains. Time has proved that  Ihe.early estimates of the s-alut1 of  these lands ,svere svrong, and the  Pacific Province is among the most  fertile of the dominion. On Okanagan lake, for instance, there are over  50,000 acres of Indian "reserves,  much of them,'excellent land, the  opening of svhieh for settlement  would be a boon to the country.  The Indians are -utilising- all' the  land they-require;'and since conditions have changed,,it is'right  that svhat is not required for the  maintenance of the na'tives' should  be withdrawn from reservation and  opened for settlement."

As   the I  result of the incapacity of  this department* the province   may   lose  the Nickle Plate smelter just as it  has   lost  the   Northport   smelter.  The people of  Oroville, across   the  line, have offered 500 acres of land  free to the Nickle  Plate people for  smelter   purposes,   together    svith  other privileges, and if  the Indian  department does not get a move on  the smelter may go  there.     If   it  does   the  people of Okanagan and  Similkameen   will   never    forgive  Hon. Clifford Sifton for the  negligence   of   his   department   svhieh  would allosv this to happen.  regarding the systems of taxation  in', Australia,' and Nesv 'Zealand.  This information is supplied by a  report of tlie revenue commission  of Colorado, ancl has been published by ,the 'American *��������� Senate for  general, information. Australian  taxation is-bsised 'on a principle  exactly the reverse of this country.  Tlie taxes are levied mainly on  land and income/--and sire of a pro-,'  gressive,' character.'" That is to say  the more land or income a man has  the more" taxation he pays, ancl  that taxation increases^ by geometrical progression, by- svhieh those  who get the most benefit from government in' the protection of^Uieir  land and prbpeity bear ,the main  burden of taxation.' This is as, it  should be. 7.In arriving at' the  assessment value of land for taxation all improvements thereon are  deducted. ' The industrious ancl  progressive man is thus bonused  and encouraged by having' less tax  to pay the more he'improves. The  drone, and the men svho hold land  for speculative purposes, arepenal-  ised ;hy heavy taxation. " The big  landowner finds under that system  that he has to sub-divide, his ot lutes  oi- turn them "over to the government for*sub;division", as he cannot  afford to hold unused large biocks  of land' in-'-'tlie face of--the heavy  taxation-'which.-has   to"  be "paid  thereon. '> Such- a -svstemi of   tax  ation svould"-"'largely -increase the  revenue,"would\ place -the -burden'  svhere.it belongs, "by" .making-tBpse  pay the  taxes  svho can" best hear  t '' ' ;r  them, by.breaking up .land, monopoly, and by opening the.couhtiy  for settlement. , It is ,to be..-hoped  ,the liberal party svill add this reform of taxation to their political  platform,.and make it a prominent  issue in future campaigns for the  education of. public opinion on a  question of-'vital importance .to tlie  svelfarc of.'the"people,and province.

Serious  Charge Against Law-  '    yer Bangs.  ' Regina,N.W.T.,"May2 ��������� A the preliminary ' hearing,, against Lawyer  Bangs, Calgary, charged with complicity'in the Wilcox ihailVohbeiy' case, the  principal witness was B. G. Bo\ce. hotel-keeper, of Gleichen, ' who i?(also  under arrest, charged with being a ic-  ceiver of portion of the stolen money.  'Boyce stated, while living in Calgary  in February, ho had borrowed $2,000  from Bangs, and given him1 a mortgage on some property at High River.  Asked Bangs for the 'loan. Bangs  said he thought he could get tho  money.' Two days later, -ho wont  again to Bungs', oflice, and gave the  mortgage for $2,000. The " money he  receis'ed on the, mortgage consisted of  Bank of Hamilton'bills in denominations of five and ten , dollars. , Bangs  told 'him' he wanted the money in  order to buy a hotel in British Co  lumbia, but would not want it spent  in this' part of the country. Bangs  further told witness that the money,  was supposed to be part of that stolen  from the-mailcar, but that in   British  Columbia it svould be* all "right,*- and  tx  there would be  no dancer   about   it.  .      u .    ,  The witness'svent to British Columbia,  but made no,'; arrangements about a  hotel,'and,'instead, went' to'Seatble,  where he tried to exchange the money,'  but failed. ] He then returned to Calgary, ancl saw Bangs, and told hini' he  had turned the'money* over to some  one else, who svas knosvn'as Thomas  Behan. - Bangs asked if the'man was  'all right, and .witness had replied that  he w.is, an"d thought Behan would be  able to get 'some of the money ex-  ch.in������ed.' r'\S'itness had given some of  the money to "Behan to have, exchanged, and had gone to the ex-  piess' oflice to ge't, a* parcel, when he  w.is 111 tested.bAccused was committed,  for tii.il.        '  the Western States of the Northern  Pacific and Gieat Northern Railways  asking cheap transportation' rates so  that they could get'rid of their surplus stock.' That surplus stock would  no doubt be sent to Canada.  Mr. Morrison asked that the Government should look into the matter an 1  give the needed assistance. He also -  said 'that the United..States' would  probably take-advantage of a clause  in the Dingley tariff which would increase the duty on lumber going to  the States to 55 percent.  ' '  Mr. Mackie, ^member  for  Renfrew,  one of'the leading lun*bermcn'of,Cnn-  ada, protested against the  imposition    <  of any duty,  which   would 'only , give '  further encouragement to'thccombine   .  svhieh  existed  in , British -Columbia,  the Northwest and Manitoba.      Until  that combine existed  there were no  imposition ,'of    lumber     from , the T  United States.     lie did   not wish 19  sec. the Government inciease the .price  of lumber against the  farmeis.     The  lumbermen can look nfter themselves.  Walter Scott, member'for Regina,  approved what Mi. Mackie had said.

Debate in the Commons on the  Tariff.  .Ott.usa, May -J���������Aulas Momson.  M. P., luought up in the House of  Commons the condition of the lumber ti.ido in British Columbia Ho  said that piospciity of I'-ntish Columbia largely depended upon the lumber  industry. At present theie was stagnation in -th.it business, and the  remedy to bring about <i change lay  in the hands of the Government.  Rough lumber is  admitted   free   of  duty into Canada.    That, class of lumber which is admitted fiec isoompiised  seventy-live per cent of the lough log.  If Uiitish   Columbia  wanted   to send  the same class   of   lumber   into'the  United States it was met with a duty  of $2 per thousand foot.     Not only is  this tho case, but the  British   Columbia manuf.tctuiei  had   lo  import  his  machinery because it could not begot  in Canada, and he had to pay  a duty  on it   of   twenty-five   per   cent.    *lf  British Columbia lumbermen Hied to  got a  market   in   tho Northwest and  Manitoba for their lumber  they   weie  met  with   a  freight  rate  of lifty-live  cents per hundred pounds, which  resulted in   giving  that  market to the  United States.     It svas said this state  of affairs   was  necessary  because  the  farmeis  of  the Northwest must have  cheap lumber.      lie   objected   to one  part o( the countiy  living at  the expense of another part.      He did so all  the more readily because  the farmers  of the West in a   few .years   made  a  competency.       Increased    protection  would not'iiicrcase the  price  of lumber. '  He read a petition  of  the  lumbermen in Oregon  and  Washington and  com bine-was   in  Northwest._   A11_ that he t'skerl foi in*  this matter was f.nr play. - Bi itish Co-  il * *��������� '  lumbia had to  pay   for  protection for  the products   of   the" Nortliwe<t.'and  therefore   the ' Northwest should nob  ��������� - i  object   to   extending  the s.ime'tteat-^.  ment to Biitish Columbia."-   F.iirpl.iy'  I was "bonnie piny."     \Vhat -was sauce   '  for bhc goose was s.iuce for the gander.   >  There was no province where the consumption  per  head   was'as'high as-  Biitish    Columbia^  t, One . province.."  should  not "be  sacrificed for another, 3  Ho hoped the Government   would see  that the'same .measure  of  tic.itnient _  would be given   to--British   Columbia  as  was  nosv  extended 'to the Northwest.--    a ���������  ;     I-"'        ,.'
