The  Twelfth Year  PHOENIX, B.C., SATJJRDAY, MAY 20,  1911  THE CITY COUNCIL  PASSES RESOLUTION  Therefore in   proportion toreve-  D   f<  ,la    Greenwood should   pay $960,  Send in Strong Protest Against  Any Increase in Salaries..  The city council met in ��� regular  session Wednesday evening- with  Mayor* Matheson, Alderman Cos-  grove, Ross, McKenzie and Rogers  present.  The session was, in some respects,  out of the ordinary* and the wiseacres around town have been predicting a stormy session. However nothing transpired to rriar the  serenity of the members, nor did  the onlookers receive all they hoped  nue  whereas it only pays $300. Kelo-  wna pays $200, whereas it, should'  pay $1,480. Rossland pays $900,  whereas it should $1,750. Grand  Forks, pays $600, whereas it should  pay $1,750. Kalso's revenue is  the same as Phoenix, $300 and  should pay $600. , -  SMELTER  WILL NOT CLOSE  No..:26  E. E.

The following is the resolution  that was presented by Alderman  Rogers and seconded by Mr. McKenzie:  "That in the opinion of the city  council of Phoenix, the order in  council passed whereby the salary  of the police magistrate was raised  from $300 to $600 a year, is unjust  to the taxpayers of this town, for  the following reasons:  1. If Phoenix is compelled to  pay $600 per year to the police  magistrate, it will be paying in proportion to the revenue of the city  more than any city of the same class  in the province as shown by the following:  Revenue  Kalso $24,000  Greenwood 38,594  Kelowna 57,500  Rossland 70,666  Grand Forks 79,326  Phoenix 24,000  ers of Phoenix, to have 'to pay, the  increased salary; and that-copies,of  this resolution be sent to Premier  McBride, W.

There  will also be some good~ attractions  at Christena lake.  The  hard   times   dance  given at  the   Miners'   Union    hall  Thursday  night  was a   success   in  every particular.    The   dance   was given for  the  benefit   of Charles   Shaw,  the  blind miner, and   quite   a neat little  sum   was   realized  for  this worthy  purpose.     A number of unique costumes  were seen   in the   hall, Mrs.  H.   Bakke   carrying   off   the    first  prize for the   best hard   times   costume worn by a lady, Geo.   Rogers  capturing the first   prize for gentlemen.    Werner's orchestra furnished  the music, and lunch  was served by  Danny  Deane   in   the   hall.     The  dance   broke up   at  2   o'clock,  and  those   in   attendance claim   to have  spent an enjoyable evening.  t-\  x\  "1  I  '        * 1* L  fit  ,�� - 'A  ���   M  - ;  Ws&gj**3&t*^^  2����i  �����*��� *!���   ���"til >>--.-  HAD FAINT HEARTS  IN BYGONE DAYS  'On Four Separate Occasions Sir  Wilfrid Spoke on Reciprocity  * i  h-^,  v  I'M "r vrjc.   ���% ,*  I'   ' ' l-i   <t'      -  [��<''>,/.-,,t'   <  f        ' fT  I    i  ''       ,    At' intervals   from   1866 to 1,896,  ���.  ���>   there'were'those, who would   have  ' liked t a   return   to   reciprocity.     In  the earlier years t they were many in  -'number.    The-memory of  the easy  trade  situation   from   1854 to 1866  .and of  the distress   which followed  1866' still   survived..    Our   people  had grown up  in   the belief that reciprocity was what Canada wanted,  ' and it was difficult to overcome that  N   belief.    It was also   difficult to turn  -:   their minds to new channels of trade  <     and to the,, conviction' that   Canada  ;; .would bev better without reciprocity.  ,    ���     But the"United .States; itself accom-  :'      plished this task.     Our overtures,'to  that'government'were rejected with  ;t    'scant    courtesy,    their   tariff    wall  against, us  was   built   higher   and  higher, and   we   were  compelled to  *. '     find new markets. /  ; In 1879  the, Macdoriald  govern-  ' '.;, ment^established the national policy  -';'', ^/'protection tot Canadian industries,  -incluciing   farming   and   farm   pro-  '   '"    ducts.      This   was - in , accordance  .-'- -.with the,, clearly  expressed' will   of  , t     the people kt. the general electionlof.  1878.     It   was a  completer; change  of the policy which, up to'ttiat time',  , ; Canada had been livingunder���had  ;      ^feeen  dying; uiife, fcoroV^haUght.  trade* then was  still depressed, the  belief,' in    reciprocity! as   the   only  remedy, remained   in   many minds;  the:fear of the , conseq.uences of incurring'   greater ; hostility 'in   the  .     United States,-still existed.  "-  ^To quiet this  fear' and retain the  support of those who   still   thought  reciprocity   the   true   remedy,   the  Government inserted in the National  Policy Act a  clause   providing   for  reciprocity in natural and farm products,   should   the   United   States  make   a  similar provision.     Overtures were, made to the government  at Washington on the subject,  with  no result other than to convince our  people that they must in future work  out their own destiny  in   their own  way and find their own  channels of  trade."  The results of the National Policy  thus   established  are   well   known.-  Factories and tall  chimneys sprung  up all over  Canada.    The ,building  of the Canadian Pacific railway was  vigorously   pushed   to   completion,  ^ trade revived���new channels   for it  wei-e found, and  the  Canadian  Na-  tionaP sentiment, which   previously  was at a low ebb, and which is now  so splendidly strong, began  to assert itself.  In the election of 1878 many supporters of the Reform party then  led, by Alexander Mackenzie, supported the Conservative policy of  protection, and the Mackenzie Government was defeated. But in 1896,  these men in large numbers supported the   Liberal  party���rbecause  iiiiiinifil!  mini  Dili  m  ((HIM  Hi I  I Mil | IMIill  POW  A pore, wholesome  leavening agent which makes the  %^Ls v mcdinm cost and  protects the  food from alnm, which Is the flreatest  dietary danger of the day.  that party had abandoned it free  trade policy ** and , given assurances  that the  National  Policy   would be  respected,should they be returned to  power.- The election of 1896 did  riot involve the'issue of free'trade as  against protection. ' ,  '      !  /The . Laurier   Government -took  office in  1896, and, in  1897'^Parliament repealed the. clause in the Act  of   1879   under   which    reciprocity!  might have   been, established'with  the v United   States/ and  confirmed  and'imjjfoyed thp National Policy of  pr^otectjion-establjshed? by^'thes Ma^'  donald; government "in 1 1879.   ;in  '1*898 ^a^ preference   of    25%'_ was  granted to Great Britain and in 1900  the British preference was increased  from;25to 33yi per cent.    -On  four  separate   occasions   since   1897   Sir  Wilfrid,  Laurier   spoke   upon   the  question.   , In . 1899, the   year  after  the last  abortive attempt to secure  reciprocity, he said:   <  "If we know the'hearts and minds  of our people  at   present, I think  1  am not  making' too   wide a state-  ment when I   say  that   the   general  feeling in Canada is not in favor of  reciprocity.   There was a time when  Canadians would have given   many  things,    to   obtain    the    American  market.    There   was  a time  when  the-market ofthe great cities of the  Union was the only market we had,  but these days   are   past   and   over  now.    We are not dependent on the  American market now."  Spokane's 18th  interstate  Fair  $36,000 to be Given in Prizes  It is  surprising5 how   many   fruit  and poultry raisers'and  ranchers in  general overlook the easy money to  be   won  at   the* various. Fairs   and  Exhibitions held inthe Inland  Empire.    We have just received a:copy  of the 1911 premium   list' issued:'by  the Spokane/Interstate Fair, which  contains an unusually   generous'list  of cash,prizes, amounting in   all to  about " $36,000.      This    nioney \ is  really-to be given away as prizes on  live stock, agricultural products arid  other exhibits and, doubtless,  much  of it.could be-won  by  exhibitors in  this locality if they would   take   the  trouble to send, in exhibits.    '  .The Spokane   Fair   management  do all they can to induce  exhibitors  to come "in, the railroads and express  companies    make   special   reduced  rates on   exhibits, and   every .question which might arise  is   carefully  explained in this premium   list,  and  yet only a very small  percentage of  the people who   might   exhibit  sue-'  cessfully, do so.     Possibly the fact  that the prizes for  this 18th Annual  Spokane Fair have been very largely  increased may interest  new   exhibitors this year.     We  notice that the  apple   prizes    alone      amount   -" to  $1458.50; an increase of $800 over  the   amefunt   offered   in   1910,   and l  other departments  also  show substantial increases.

M  ing, Spokane,   when interviewed by  a Spokesman-Review reporter.  >     "The location, oif  the property is  absolutely ideal.     It   is" situated on  Goose   bay,   a   beautiful   enclosed  harbor, which   branches off- Observatory inlet.    The mine is on   a hill  having an elevation   of about 1500  ���feet, a   mile   and a   half from  the  water   front.    The   company   owns  mineral   claims  amply   covering .all  of the ore exposures and   veins and  some 2000 or 3000  acres   of  land  lying   between   the   mine "and   the  water front. .    - u.        -.     -  "Hidden    Creek, ,  which     flows  through our   land," has a fall of 400  feet, and   is   capable   of furnishing"  all   the   necessary   power, for rthe  operation of both mine and smelter.  .  It  already   supplies   power  for   the  machinery with which   the property,  is   equipped.    There   is   abundance  of  timber  on   the   company's holdings, as well as a small sawmill*  "The   members   of   the   Granby  staff,   who   accompanied   me   north  and remained with Mr. Lawrence to  make   a   thorough   examination of  the mine, also  will   definitely determine before they return the location  of  the smelter   with   which we propose to equip   it, provided  that  the  property proves   to- be  satisfactory  in every way.     1 expect   to have reports   from   Mr.   Lawrence,  W. Y.  Williams, our  consulting engineer;  O. B. Smith, manager of our Phoenix    mine,    and    Wake    Williams,  manager  of  our  smelter,"to    take  east with me  to   submit  to a directors' meeting in New York in about  three weeks.  and experiencing a surprising and  rapid development."' Vancouver is  crowded. I failed to wire ahead  for���a room before leaving Prince  Rupert, and it was with the greatest  difficulty that I got a place to sleep  the night I spent' there on my re-,  turn. , Prince Rupert also is a busy  city and will have another period of  expansion thfs summer.  "The.contrast   between, business  conditions in   British Columbia and  Alaska   is   most   marked.     In   the  latter country business   is stagnant,  the people   are utterly ; discouraged  and the flow  of  capital for   the development, of natural   resources has  absolutely, ceased.     Alaskans are so  greatly incensed at the   delay".bf the  government   in    dealing   with   the  opening of coal lands   that I should  not be at   all  surprised   to   hear   of  more   Cordova   coal   parties  unless  action is   taken   promptly, that' will  result in  the   opening,of .coal lands  in that country on   some, basis that  will permit of  the operation of coal  mines. *  -  "During my entire trip I enjoyed  the finest of spring weather. The  Granby boys who wintered at the  mine tell me that it was never as  cold there as at Grand Forks. The  snowfall was considerably heavier,  but, except in the woods, it has all  gone off. It is broad daylight at  the mine till bedtime at this season  of the year. One can read comfortably till after 10 o'clock."  ���-. .�� : _    ���-  '    .< ... ,   ��� '  We want to talk to you about Fit-Reform Clothing.

There is one thing that can be said
about miners that can hardly be said
about any other class of laboring men,
and that is they never forget one of
their members in distress who needs
assistance.   The hand of mercy with
its financial aid is always   extended
and misery alleviated wherever found
