The wordy discussion  waa continued  !"for sometime, until the Mayor poured oil  upon ibhe troubled waters and restored  < harmony, byagreeing to see that the men  got their rights.

IMPORTANT MATTEBS  00ME   UP  f 0B DISCUSSION.  The Uration ������r PrvpMca lna������ Bcgklrr  Offlce and the tiacdlon *r ���������lacrtmlna-  lion In freight Kale* maemsed.  The regular meeting of the South  Kootenay Board of Trade, on Thursday  afternoon was largely attended by the  business men of the city, who are apparently alive to the necessity for combined  effort to advance the'interests of the city.  In the absence of Secretary Thompson at  Victoria, Frank Fletcher acted as secretary.  The first matter taken up was the question ot the location of a laud registry office for the Kootenay. In introducing  tbe question President Turner stated that  Dr. LaBau, medical health offioer bad  gone to Victoria to interview the Provincial Board of Health regarding the disposal of sewerage and that he had requested the doctor to urge the claims of  Nelson' for the registry office iu conjunction with Secretary Thompson. He <|id  not consider it wise, id the absence of definite information from the government to  place too much dependence on telegrams  from delegates from another point which  was anxious to secure tbe registry office.  Mr. W. A. Macdonald, QC, waa called,  on and reported that the members of the  legal profession were doing' all in tbeir  power to secure the location of the office  at Nelson. He believes that the registry  oSlce will be located here, but in view  of the activity of the -people of  Bossland in tho matter, urged the Board  of Trade to not relax their'efforts until  the question were definitely decided by  the government. , He had written to  members of the legal profession in Sloean towns and as far as heard from tbey  were unanimously in favor ofNelson. He  presented a largely signed petition which  had beeu circulated in Koslo by Mr.  Wheeler, to be forwarded to the provincial government. Tbe petition set fortb  that a registry office is a necessity in  Kooteauy ; tLut Nelsou is tbe moat ���������nit-  able poin t for its location; tbat tbe selection of Nelson in preference to Kossland would be more convenient to the  residents of every town in the Sloean;  that a trip from Sloean points-to Roa^  land and return occupies three days while  the round trip to Nelsou can as a rule be  made in one day and tbat the mail service is much more expeditious.  Similar petitions are also being largely  signed ot Sloean City, Sandon, New Denver and other points.' After some discussion it was decided to send a telegram to  Mr. Hume regarding the petition.  The report of the special committee appointed to investigate the freight rates  ou railways runuing to Nelson- was re-^  ceived. The report contained a detailed  statement of the rates charged by tbe  Nelson & Fort Sheppard railway, the  Kaslo and Sloean and the C.P.R. on ore  to Nelson, and a comparative statement  of rates to Northport. The injurious effects to the trade of Nelson by the habit  of distribution of cailoodlots from Revel-  stoke and Nakusp were also set forth.  The report was thoroughly discussed  by members of the board. Mr. Martin,  auditor of the Nelson and Fort Sheppard  railway and Mr. Peters, representing the  C.P.R., were present and addressed the  board on the question. Both disclaimed  auy intention on tbe part of tbe companies they represented, of discriminating against Nelson.  The report was laid on the table for  a week for farther consideration and the  board adjourned until next Thursday  afternoon. s  The Marnlng Mine.  Superintendent Cross of the Morning  mine on Toad mountain feels very much  elated over tho way the property is show-  up as development proceeds. The sink-  iug of the shaft has been discontinued at  the 100 foot level and drifting will now  be carried on the lead, which shows  three and a half feet of shipping ore.  Development work wiil be pushed ahead  vigorously until spring when a considerable amount of ore will be ready for  shipment. The property gives every  indication of being a good mine.  Case Axainst Frof. Payne Dismissed.  Professor Payne, phrenologist, who  has been in the city for the past week  was waited on by Chief McKinnon on  Tuesday with a request that he contribute the sum of $5 to the city treasury  for a license to examine the bumps of  residents of the city. The 'Professor  accompanied the Chief to the city  offices to pay the license, but when he  arrived there Mayor Houston demanded  $50 license under the section of the bylaw fixmg the license'for-seers, soothsayers, clairvoyants and fortune tellers at  that amount.   The professor objected to  being classed under any of those beads  and refused to pay tbe additional $45.  The result waa a summons to appear  before Police Magistrate Crease to answer  to the, charge of refusing to pay lionise.,  Tbe oaae was adjourned three times and  was finally disposed of on Wednesday  afternoon by the charge being dismissed  without costs. At tho oonolusion of Ihe  trial tie Professor went to tbe city offices  and took. ont a $5 license. Tbe costs of  the case were considerable and the city is  thus put to expense through one man's  obstinacy.  0BB SHIPICBBT8.  mmmmvutr ������r iimil nf ������m aad Matte  Bxpnrtcd trim the Pnrt ef Nclana.

John Tklfokd, Sec'y.  SATURDAY. MARCH 5. 1803.  Colonel Scott, who \v;is afterwards  elected mayor :md Mr. McNeill. Tho  Nelson delegates were Messrs. Houston, Elliot aud Hillyer.'' While in  Victoria these gentlemen came to an  understunding about what tho government should be asked to do for their  respective towns, and it was agreed  that the land registry olTice should go  to Nelson, it Nelson would on her part  make no objection to a Supreme Court  registry being established at Rossland. Rossland therefore got her  Supreme Court registry and it is hardly fair of her now to cavil at Nelson  obtaining her part of the bargain.  While on this subject it may he as  well to point out for the'information  of people unacquainted with the  geography of tins country, that Rossland is very far from being n central  point of this district, in fact she is  right up against one side, of it, having  the International boundary within  some five or six miles of her. All  persons from Kaslo, Ainswortb. Pilot  Bay or anywhere on. Kootenay lake  and from the greater part of the Sloean would actually have to go through  Nelson to get tto Rossland. Nelson on  the other hand is absolutely central  and has railways and steamboats  directly connecting her with every  part of the Kootenay country.  DISCRIMINATION.  LEAD SMELTING.  The Kaslo  Kootenaian has issued n  pamphlet on the subject of lead smelt  ing, which is described  in an accom  panying letter as "the Hist gun in a  campaign of work looking towards the.  fostering of the lead mining, smelting  and     manufacturing     interests    of  Canada!" etc.    As a matter  of fact  public attention was first called to the  matter by an article in our issue of  lust week.   That however is a trifle,  and not being in the artillery business  ourselves we have no desire to enter  into the gunning competition.   What  may be called the bullet of the Koote-  nainn's gun is the stale old remedy  protection.   Clap ������������ duties to .'end and  I������n4 products so that  Canada   must  iiae the lend produced  within her own  Itoundaiies is the cry, regardless of the  fact that by so doing the whole of the  rest of Canada is asked to pay more  for its lead   in order that Kootenay  Alone may benefit.   And in Kootenay  it  is   doubtful' whether tlie mining  interests would increase their profits  The advantage would lie entirely with  the smeltew.   The duty on white lead  now is 5 per cent.   That would have  io be increased to 25 per cent, so that  the consumer would have to pay at  least a quarter more, which would not  go into the pockets of the miner but  into those"bf ������sn.iclter iiienr^"^-������������������-  Kootenay produced   in   1807  10,481  tons of lead.   Judging by the increase  of our exports so far for 1898 and the  number of new mines in every stage  of development from new prospectsto  young shippers this  amount  will  be  very much increased immediately.   In  fact it would not be surprising if  the  amount were doubled during the current year.   Canada cannot use all this  lead.   What then are we to  do., with  lhe surplus, when 3by  our   protection  measures we have irritated the United  States into keeping out'our lead   altogether?   In   fact  the   policy  of  the  Kootenaian woiild restrict the product  of lead   in   Kootenay   to   the  exact  amount'required by Canada.    If it is  adopted we may at once drop all hope  of expansion and the rosy dreams of a  prosperous future melt at once into  thin air.  There can lie ho question about the  desirability of reducing the ore on this  side. There we are at one with our  contemporary.- It. is simply as to the  means for accomplishing this end that  we differ. Now it happens that in our  relations with the United States there  are continual adjustments of the  tariffs: of the two countries taking  place. Now and then one country  gets a little "cinch" somewhere on the  other and is. thereby enabled to get  the tariff eased off a bit in a place  ���������where, ft .pinches .very hardly. Let  all these facts be brought home as  ������������������������ forcibly as possible to.'our Dominion  govenment and through'them, to the  Imperial government, with an insistence that the .American differential  duty on pig lead is Canada's greatest  grievance and that the first opportunity must be utilized for its abolition.  LAND REGISTRY OFFICE.-  In the matter of the location of a  land Registry office in Kootenay there  is a little matter of history which may  be well ���������worth remembering. Just  "About a year ago representatives of  Nelson and Rossland went to Victoria  to urge- the incorporation of the two  towns.    Rossland was represented  by  Last week we pointed out the difficulty thrown in the way of lead smelting in Canada by the duties imposed  by the United States government' on  lead in the form of pigs or bullion.  Unfortunately we have no strings on  the American government and our  appeals to their generosity ate not  likely to fall into willing eais,t especially in view of the Canadian government's action about the issue of miner's  licenses for the Yukon. ,  The researches of our new, and ex������  tremely serviceable Board of Trade  have unearthed another obstacle, not  only to lead smelting, but to smelting of all kinds. It is howeyer fortunate that in this instance we have some  little power in the matter and it can  be remedied at once if our governments have any back bone. -" The' culprit in this ease has received many  exceedingly valuable concessions from  us and is particularly fond of posing  in the light of a benefactor to the  Province generally and to Kootenay  in particular. We fancy that from  this very source too, we have heard  complaints about the grasping- policy  of the C. P. R. and it is the more sur-  pising therefore to find that the Nelson  ana Fort Sheppard railway has sins  of its own for which it must account.  Tlie rat j on ore from Hair Siding,  near which as most of our' readers  know the Fern Mine is situated, to  Nelson a distance of-18 miles, is $2.25.  The rate on the same ore to the smelter at Northport, Mr. Cot-bin's own  protege, a distance of 52 mile? is only  one dollar. Nearly throe times the  distance and less than half the price.  We beleivc that a similar disparity  exists in the rates from Ymir and  other local points. ��������� Many mines in  that district are opening up aud during the coming season a considerable  quantity of ore will be sent 'out for  treatment. Under the present arrangement it will  go  to the United  SKtesr^^r "   =.=������;. ----. -r=_=������^i=^~=  Here is the case of a; company, to  which we have given thousands of acres  of land, arid every concession that was  asked for, quietly stealing our own  ore from under our very noses and  taking it a,way to put 'dollars and  cents into the pockets of other people.  Mr. Corbin's aext appearance .as the  benefactor of Kootenay should earn  him a warm reception.  This astute gentleman is now asking  for a charter to build a railway into  the Boundary country, with the object  doubtless of stealing the ore from  that country too. There are not as  yet any smelters in that restrict and  if the present condition of things is  allowed to exist,.there' never will be  Che government should only grant  that charter on condition that equal  fates are charged either way, and if  Mr. Corbin is so terribly anxious to  get his new charter he might be asked  whether he would not agree to an  equalisation of rates on om- own line.  The N. & F. S. railway is not the  only offender. The Kaslo & Sloean  railway charges $5 per ton for ore  from Sandon consigned to Pilot. Bay  or Nelson, and only S3 for the same  ore intended for United States points.  The C.P.R. also charges $1 Der ton  from Robson to Nelson, 28 miles, and  $3 per ton from Sloean City toNelsoni  45 miles.  This thing is intolerable and must  be remedied.  Has. produced, but his ignorance of  the great bard is not so striking -when  we find it shared by no less a person  than the Editor of the Rossland Miner.  Iu his issue of the 1st. be abandons  his trumpet playing for a time and  indulges in a little literary criticism  of an article in our issue of last week,  pulling to pieces as an absurd simile  the 'phrase we used anent the roar  of a sucking dove. The phrase is,  one would have supposed, sufficiently  well known, and_if our friend the  Rossland Editor will be good enough  to turn to the srecond scene of the first  act of the Midsummer Night's Dream,  he will find that his objections must  be addressed to one William Shake-  spere, now deceased, and not to us.  It is being widely reported that the  British Columbia government has  subsidized Messrs. Mackenzie & Mann  for their Teslin lake railroad in the  sum of $325,000, an amount equal to  alnjut five-eighths cf the estimated  cost of building the line. Now if only  some charitable person- will find the  remaining three eighths, the railway  will cost the builders nothing and they  will have their land grant free. This  is said to equal a strip of land three  miles wide stretching right across the  American'' continent from New York  to San Francisco. The district in  which it may l>e selected includes the  Klondike and any other part of British  Alaska in which gold may be found.  Such a grant'is more than sufficient  recompense for building a trifling  tramway, for it is nothing else, up to  Teslin Lake and we trust that our own  government will not be led into such a  prostitution of the public funds as the  reports suggest.  In view cf the extreme inconvenience to Kootenay generally that  would result if the land registry office  were established at Rossland, petitions are being sent from the cities of  the Sloean to Victoria to have it  located at Nelson. We scarcely know  which to appreciate most, the material  help those petitions give to our claims  to the offlce, or the kindly spirit,  which, sinking past rivalry; backs up  Nelson. The latter "will not be forgotten, and mayhap an. occasion may arise  when we may lie given an opportunity,  not. to repay it.fpr a generoiisaction  requires no recompense, ���������;. but to show  our gratitude in similar town. ;^'  MtOFESSUttAt CAB������ft.

' A newspaper correspondent at Seattle  writes regarding tbe mad rash from that  port to tbe Klondike ns follows: "It is  only once in a lifetime, if ever, that one  witnesses the scenes daily enacted on the  docks at Seattle. When the steamer  ���������City of Seattle left on her-last~voy age-to  Skagunv, she loaded freight until her  anchor chains touched water, and still  she took on freight until ihe inspector  came along aud compelled the ollisers to  remove a part of her cargo. It was amusing and at times pathetic to see the  struggles of the passenger to have their  freight put aboard. Men and women  went about imploring captain and officers  to take their effects. Many succeeded  in getting a part of tbeir freight and  baggage aboard only to find at the last  moment that some of the most indiopen-  sible articles bad been left ou the dock.  "Every ship and craft now returning  from Sknguay nnd; Dyea brings back  would be Klondikers, who, discouraged  nud disheartened by lindiug gauzy daydreams vanish on the first encounter  ..with the ice and enow ot nn almost arctio  winter, have turned pguin to civilization,  ���������adder and wiser men.  "There are hundreds ot people iu Dycu  and Skaguay out of work, out of money  and every day growing/ more desperate.  It is safe to say that one unit the people  who are making for tbe northern gold  fields have just barely money enough  left to buy transportation to Skaguay  after purchasing the necessary outfit.  There are thousands already there, who,  finding it impossible to proceed, have  not money to return to civilization nor  the means of procuring a livelihood.  Their situation is desperate and it does  not require a prophet to foretell the result.  "Many of the vessels now running  between Pacific points and Alaska ports  are uuseaworthy and poorly officered.  Every old tub that can be made to  float is resabioed and repainted and  called an "elegant steamer" and clears  from $10,000 to $20,000 for each round  trip. It is almost miraculous that more  casualties have not occurred. While all  agree that tbe country is immensely rieb,  the amount of dust booked to come out  on the first steamers, has been greatly  overestimated. A conservative estimate  places tbe amount at about $10,000,000.  The Poorman mine of Rossland shipped  160 tons of ore to the Northport smelter  Inst week.
