The new school houso \v,»s
filled with citizens on Wednesday
evening, the object of the meeting being to take action in the
way of urging the Provincial |
Government to proceed at onco
with certain public improvements required in the District,
and to receive llie report, of tlie
citizens' delegate to Ottawa. The
chair was occupied by Dr. Watt.
R. L. T. Galbraith opened the
discussion by giving au outline
of some public works which he
thought il absolutely necessary
tliat the Provincial Government
should begin at once, the views
he expressed being further enlarged on by the chairman.
.1. A. Harvey thon moved the
following resolution:—
Whereas the Governmenl of
this Proviuce has appropriated
the sum of §13,000 for the construction and improvement of
roads and bridges in the Fort
Steele District;
And whereas, according to tho
usual course in these matters,this
appropriation of money will not
becomo available before tho Isl
of duly next;
And whereas, tho construction
of certain mads ami bridges at a
date previous to the Isl of July
nexl is an absolute necessity if
the business uf the disiriei and
the development of our mining
and commercial interests are to
lie properly facilitated;
And whereas, owing to the
high stage of water that prevails
in the streams at the time the
appropriation would in the ordinary course of events become
due, it will be easier and cheaper
to proceed with certain of the
necessary works now than then;
Therefore, be it resolved, that
the Government of the Province
be respectfully urged to provide
means by which the following
works may bo proceeded with
without unnecessary delay and
without awaiting the time
when the aforesaid appropriation
would in the regular order become due:—
Wild Horso Oreek bridge, opposite Indian olliee.
St, Mary's River bridge aud
St. Mary's wagon road extension from Mark Creok to St.
Mary's Lake.
Matthew Creek trail,
Trail up north and west forks
of St. Mary's River,
Bridge over north fork of St.
Mary's River,
Road through Westport.
* ' The mover said lhu resolution
spoke for itself. If the work on
these improvements was delayed
lill after the 1st of duly, the advantages of the expenditure of
the money would scarcely be felt
lhis year, while the additional
expense attaching to lho prosecution of the work after the
water had risen in the streams
had made it a matter of ordinary
economy to go 'ahead with the
work at once.
E. A. Elton said that good
rouds meant cheap freight, rales.
As the roads were at present it
was a tremendous tax on the
linsiness of the country, and the
sooner they were improved, the
sooner would general business
take on renewed activity.
Win. Baillio seconded the. resolution, lie slated that those
who had drawn il up had enumerated ill it simply those worlis
which Ihey considered of lhe
greatest urgency. At. a previous meeting a complete list of
what improvements were though!
n icessary in lhe districl had
been passed upon and forwarded
to the government, A largo
number of items were entered in
that list which ware not included
in the resolution. Those included
o nbracod particularly ihe neces-
stry W'irl; lo open up tli * Si.
Mary's River country, which
would be greatly advantaged
by ni:n*:*:i iiinl utheis being
ablo to get in thoir sup
plie>, mining machinery, etc.,
from this aide, instead of
being compelled, as they had
been last year, lo ascend the
steep and difficult pass from;
Pilot Bay in West Kootenay. If
any work of particular urgency j
had been omitted from the items |
enumerated in the resolution, the
mooting might add to the list as^
it thought lit.
Mr. Poison proposed that the
road to and up Tracy and Lawis
Creeks should be added, and tho
suggestion was adopted.
J. A. Williamhorst thought
that the improvement of the road
from Moyio City to Kootenay
Luke should be added, as it was
practically impossible to get a
waggon over it.
Mr Galbraith objected on tho
ground that the road westward
from Moyie was a C. P. R. tote
road, built by the railway for its
own use during construction, and
that the Government could not
properly be asked to expend
money on it.
On the suggestion of Alex
Poison the trail up the East
Pork of Wild Horse was added
to the list. The resolution as
amended was then adopted uiul
ordered to lie transmitted wilh
necessary explanations to the
Provincial Government without
T. T. McVittie alluded to the
fact that the Provincial Government had been repeatedly urged
to make an appropriation in aid
of tho Port Steelo Hospital. It
was a shame that every other
public hospital in the Province
except the Port Steele institution had received aid from the
Government. He saw by the
estimates that not a cent had
been appropriated to Port
Steelo in this regard, and he
moved, seconded by W. M. Titus,
that a telegram be prepared and
forwarded to the Government
asking that an appropriation be
made in the supplementary estimates for this purpose.
The chairman adverted iu
strong terms to the neglect or
the obduracy of the Government
in this matter, and said that
prompt and vigorous action
should he taken to secure au appropriation this year.
The Chairman and the mover
and seconder of the resolution
were appointed a ciiliiinillee lo
draft ami forward a suitable
despatch to the Government on
this subject.
Wm. Baillie, the citizens' delegate to Ottawa, was then called
upon by the Chairman to make a
report as to the results of his
mission. The delegate arose
amid applause and made a
statement in detail of what had
been done and what had boen
sought lo be done. lie tirst alluded to the steps taken al Ottawa to secure the establishment
of a Postollice Savings Hank at
Port Steele. This object had
been obtained, and he was
pleased lo see that already the
Postollice Inspector for Hie
Province was on the ground,
and within a few days tho Savings I'niili would be iii operation

ance, and on reaching Ottawa
tho delegate had at once sought
and obtained an interview with
Hon. A. G. Blair, Minister of
Railways, on the subject. Personally the delegate had never
felt any anxiety about the building of this branch line, I'm* il wus
as important to the ('. P. li. thai
it should reach this point as il
was to Porl Steelo to have the
railway connection il would give,.
Hon. Mr. Hlair was furnished
wilh maps of the disiriei and a
lengthy written description giving in minute detail the whole
situation wiih respect to Port
Stoele, its past history, its present importance as the central
point of business activity in the
district, its position as the distributing point for the great
mining urea surrounding it. uml
the prospect it enjoyed of quickly becoming a large and prosperous city, with mining and commercial interests second to no
city in the interior of the Province. Hon. Mr. Hlair said lhat
if tho facts relating to Port
Stoele had boen placed before
the Government previous to the
signing of the contract for the
building of the Crow's Nest Railway, the Government would
have made it a condition that the
main line of ■hat railway should
have had its course directly
through Port Sleele. The dele
Kale explained to him that il was
only an accidental occurence
that the Governmenl hud not
been given tin- necessary information. All needful step-,
bad been taken io lliul end by
the   people   of   Port   Sleele. lull
there wus a failure in tin* transmission of the documents to the
Government which was simply
an accident and could not have
been foreseen. Mi'. Blair said il
had been the policy of the Government from tin' beginning to
have the Crow's N'esl Railway
track' at every settled point that
could   reasonably   be   reached.
Port Steele was one of the points
Eiat. should have been reached
y '.'..,: main line, but the con-
acl was now done and finished.
The branch was the best that
could I. * done, and he was not
sure but this would serve the
people of Port Steele as well as
the main line, and particularly
so if through it Port Steele had
the advantage of a terminal or
competing position. He assured
the delegate that Port Steele had
no reason to fear for her railway
connection. Sir Wilfrid Laurier
was next seen, and afterwards a
number of interviews were had
with both the Premier and the
Minister of Railways. Sir Wilfrid expressed his regret that
the contract did not call for tin
main line into Port Steele, but
the branch was a certainty. This
he had been personally assured of
by the management of the Canadian Pacilic Kailway Company,
he haling lakon occasion since
lhe arrival of the Porl Steole
dologato in Ottawa to procure a
statement of the Railway Company's intention wilh respect to
the matter. Every li. C. member of Parliament present ul Ottawa during lhe delegate's slay
Ihere had loyally .seconded his
ell'orls regarding this railway
inuller. uud lln* resell of llie
whole business wus llllll lliedele
IgalOllOW  possessed   Ibe   wrilten
sialemeiii of Vice Prosldenl
Shaughnessy of ihe Canadian
i Pacilic Ruilwuy, tlmt the branch
line  inlo   Porl   Sleele  would   lie
I buill, iiiiii thoro wus no question
of coming here, but it wus one of
gelling illlli Fol'l Sleele ill the
elirliesl possible moment,    ll.oild
applause.i     Mr.   Shaughnessy
himself would be ill Porl Sleele
!within   lhe   nexl    four  or   live
weeks. Ha (the speaker) had
heard it reported that a contract
for the Fort Steele branch had
been let to Contractor Egan;
this was on the authority of Dr.
Wall, Ibe information being obtained by his informant through
oneof llie Crow's N'esl engineers.
Although not a matter which
he had been specially commissioned to look after when in the
Easl, Mr. liaillie had seen most
of the general managers of the
great chartered banks of Eastern
Canada wilh the objoct of securing the establishment of a branch
of one of them at Port Sleele.
Mr. E. A. Elton was in the East
ai ihe time and wus extremely
active in impressing llie bunking
peoplo with the importance of
locating hero without delay. Together Mr. Elton and the dele
gate had seen several of tin*
general managers and boards of
the eastern bunks, had prepared
and supplied them wilh maps
and written information respecting the district and city, and lhe
result was llial ii was now regarded as a certainty that one or
otlier of these banks would locate a branch here early this
spring. In le*' 1 he hi I bo * i in
forme 1 Unit already the safes of
one of the banks was at the
Railway station at (lolden. The
advantages of u chartered bank
ut Port Steele would be very
greal, for through it the financial operations of lhe whole disiriei would be conducted.
These, concluded Mr. Baillie,
were ihe results of tho important
mission which be bad bad the
honor of being intrusted with by
the people of Fort Steele. On
resuming his seal Iiie delegate
was loudly applauded,
L W. Patiii(ii*e moled, .seconded by E. A. Elton, thai the hearty
thanks of the meeting are due
and be tendered lo Mr. Ilaillie
lor lhe efforts he had made as
the citizens delegate at Ottawa,
and whicli had been crowned
wilh such signal success.
J. A. Harvey and E. A. Ellon,
speaking to lhe motion, referred
in terms of praise to the work
that had been accomplished by
the delegate, which would be of
substantial and enduring benefit
not alone to the city but to the
whole dislrict.
The chairman then tendered
the thanks of the meeting to Mr.
Baillie who briefly referred to
the pleasure it gave him to have
met with their approval,
W. R. Ross said it was his
purpose to have hud a forma'
resolution in readiness to present to the meeting urging on
Government the necessity of the
appointment of a County i 'otirt
Court Judge for this dislrict, i it

The Atlanta Constitution wants

The loss amounts to $80 on

■Professor A. IS. Spear, of Ohio

this district is the failure of
parties in working and not saving the values iu both low and
high grade ores.
If the Dominion Government
imposes an import duty on lead,
says thu Kosslnnd Times, il will
no doubt give our silver-lead
mines a bettor chance to supply
the homo consumption, iiiii. the
amount of lead used iu Canada Is
so small that the output of one
of the large Slocan mines could
fill lhu order. To keep out foreign lead the duly musi be a Stiff
one, and a high duty must enhance the price. The consumers
will kick al lhis, and there will
be great opposi tion loan import
duly on lead iu the manufacturing centres of the east.
The defeat of Mr. Colton'smotion that laborers in mines should
not be required lo takeout a free
miners' certlllcato will certainly
carry weight with the miners
when the time comes for them to
record their votes. It was made
a party question, the Opposition
voting for it and the Government supporters against, the figures boing 111 to 11. It seems to
us who reside in a mining dis
trict that the Government has
acted foolishly in not granting
such a suiiill concession. Moreover, it is discriminating against
metalliferous miners lo impose a
tax on them from which coal
uiiiiers are exempt.
water is gathered in a tunic at

extract the gold with the help of

as they can command. It is
known that sea water contains
an average of 0.71 grain per ton,
but all efforts heretofore to precipitate values havo proved ineffectual, and there is room for
suspicion that the Maine project
will reap its richest harvest from
the sale of stock- ill the Electrolytic Marine Salts Company, instead of from the rolling deep.

endorsed by the meeting is the
iBell organ (Cathedral model)
handsomely finished and decorated ou all sides, and is admit-
iledly the besl style of organ
architecture suitable for church

The talent scheme was then
brought, before the meeting by
Mrs. Martin, and its method discussed. The Society approved,
and appointed Mrs. Martin and

Acting as a body they will be a

Anti-Monroe Dortrino.
Loudon, April 12, Afler commenting upon the fuel that "the
effect of the drama!ie postponement of President McKinley Es
message has been to plunge two
continents into profound suspense and pui every bourse in
the world into violent alternations of heat and cold," the Spec-
lalor suggests us a possible explanation of the delay that "the
president found, or fancied he
had found, he was face to face
with a coalition of Ihe continental powers Franco, Russia,
Germany and Austria nominally lo preserve the peace of the
world, in reality to conduct an
anti-Monroe campaign to prevent any territory now in possession of European power passing under American control."
But lhe Spectator in its nexl

continental powers do mil love
the American republic, Ihey
would mil be so mad as lo risk a
war with the whole Anglo Saxon
race, and llml would be the outcome; for if America was ut-
taelii'd by a continental coalition
England would be nl her side in
