The Big Six, the Hill-Morgan-Rocke-  I'ellor railroad aggregation, is an affair  of over a billion dollars, to be exactly  accurate of $1,011,742,037. of capital.  It controls 40,120 miles of riiilrcmd. Thu  American Smelting ifcRelining Co. has  a capital stock of $100,000,000. The  Steel and Iron Tnibt is another affair  of ii. billion dollars. These are all  associated combinations, offshoots of  the Standaid Oil Co. The combine  practically controls the transportation aud mineral output and its allied  industries in the United States. There  never has been seen anything like it  in the history of the world. Alr?ady  the big iron works lately staz ted at  Sydney, Cape Breton, liiivecomenudcr  its control. Last week the Canadian  papers were pointing to this gieat  enterprise with a glow of satisfaction  as a purely Canadian undertaking. A  day or two ago a rumor came that the  Steel & Iron Trust were bidding for it.  It. was denied. Subsequently the  denial was modified to the extent that  "the deal had not yet been closed." In  a day or two we shall doubtlesss hear  that the negotiations have been completed. Anyd.iy one may expect to  see a similar series of rumors, denials  and- confirmations with regard to the  Big Six" having secured conlrol of thu  Grand Tumi: and C. P. R. The public  knows nothing of these gigantic de-ils  till they are practically put through,  not that the fifty, millions or so rieces-  sary.tn acqoiie sufficient stock in our  Canadian companies to put them in  contiol would seem a very gigantic-  affair to the Vauderliilt-Ruckefeller-  Morgan combination. As. for our  smelting and- mining industries, llie  American Smelting and Refining Co  is aheady milking its boast that it  holds them within its gi*asp'(ind as it  matter of fact if - the ��������� twirior three  remaining refine! ie.-, in the States,  whicli are still holding out ag.-iinst the  trust, capitulate, it will be fully  competent lo justify its assertion. The  trust would simply'jotiLitiuc to refuse  to take Canadian m.-iUe and the smelters would ha veei ther to close npovsliiji  all the way to Kngln nil. And wit li the  smellers down would close the mines.  The trust is - not-evenr ncuv buying  CAnadian oie and any miiu's that are  win king in Kcoti'iiay today are ihoiis  whose oie tin* IConteniiy smellcrs ,-ne  treating and no others. This is I lie  situation. Theie arc some (ipt.iiiiisl'..  who ailed to legard it wilh com*  placenc y and do a good deal more than  insinuate that anyone, who dues  otherwise, must be in the pay of.lhe  C.P.R. At the risk of incurring Ihe  displeasure of these advocates of Lhe  policy of placing this province at the  mercy of thc Standard Oil Co. to make  or lo mar, the Lllilt.M.u ventures lo  assert that never iu ils hisLoty has lhe  Dominion faced a graver crisis or one  ftanght with more i'.-ir reaching consequences or which required a bolder  and more fat* seeing policy from the  rulers of , the country, than is being  presented right at this very time.  COUNCIL OF BOARD OF TRADE.  THE STREET LIGHT  SERVICE.  If this city owned .its, own electric  light plant the' Fire, Water & Light  committee would not hiive to be figuring on the least number of street lights  they can do with, us they are compelled to do at present in order to keep  down expenses. On the conli-iry'they  could put in lights all over the-town  as lavishly , as the convenience of the  ralepaveis required without' being |at  .my additional cost, beyond that of  the lamps, whatever. And :ifc the  same time we should possess a valuable  asset in the shape of the plant. As it  is now we have to cut our street lights  down to a kind of darkness made  visible on sonic streets and none at all  on others, we have to p-iy to the  company a considerable annual sum  and one increasing every year for this  inadequate service', which we cannot  afford to conveit into an adequate and  satisfactory one and at the end of  each year or a hundred years for that  matter, we hnve spent the money and  there is nothing to show for it.  The Government Asked to ^Continue the  Trail   From    Goldstream, .to    Canoe  River. ���������    "  The fortnightly meeting' of the  council of the board of trade was held  at 10'JO ii. in. on Thiusdiiy.

During the week, n bear, who has  been wintering ou "Vancouver moun  tain and hoarding at the mine without  paying, refused to take his time when  it was offered to him hy foreman Sam  Barker and got gay with the cook.  This was going too far so one of the  star boarders came down to town and  bun owed a big gun and loaded it io'i-  bear.

Another  motion was passed requesting the  mayor to interview Mr," A. S. Farwell  on the site question, taking wilh him  maps and other, instructions.

A IIkr.vld representative was  officially' informed last night that  tliece is not a word of truth in the  report published in yesterday's Mail  in connection with the matter. The  Mail's entire article i.s purely imaginative and contains' so many things  that are so wide of the actual facts  that- the company does not think it  necessary to take the trouble of  denying them,.'being satisfied that the  public will treat them at their true  value.

There is a   good   deal   of  talk 'and  inquiry   in   outside    mining     circles'  aliout the Big Bend district, now  that  the government of   the.   province   has  adopted a settled   policy   of   development in that section.    In view of   this  fact it isaltngether likely that consider-'  able prospecting will take place  there  this coming season, paiticularly as the.  new steamboat line   from   Revelstoke..  up the liver will place   large   sections  of the district within easy reach of the  prospectors,   for   whom   Jaiich    field  awaits a careful search for the mineral  wealth existing in   the   country.     To  take one very obvious line   of  exploration.   The whole of   the  west   bank  almost present s a hi the*, to only slightly  explored held.    Smith Creek   is  about  the only creek at all well known   and'  Smith Creek gives   excellent  promise  of placer gold in its gravel, so excellent  that no doubt the other creeks   on   the  same side of the river will well   repay  examination.   Seymour creek   is   one  of these, along which   the puss    wass  found, which in the old   days   of   the  Big Bend stampede in th'e .sixties" was  used to convey   supplies   from  Kam-  Inops'by way of the 'Seymour Arm  of-    ,  Shuswap lake to the   mines      It    is-'  notorious that   goood   indications of;  liiineraljwcalth were known   to   exist,"  along this pass in those days."  Bur, the  stampede subsided, and the   pass   was' ,  left deserted and bnt little systematic  prospecting hashc-en' done in   it since,'  though an occasional spasmodic  effort  has been made   to relocate   one quart'/.'  claim of fabulous promise,  which   was   '  diccvered   in   those   early   days  and  abandoned on account of the   prohibitive expense of carrying on  mining in.  anything   Inn.   the   richest .kind*   of  -  placer   at   that  time. <���������    "There - are    -  numerous-creeks between the Jordan,  on   which*  several 'promising   galena    ���������_  claims were located some four  or 'five  yeais ago. and   this ."Seymour  creek,,.  whichAvoulddoubUess'.^wcOl-reward a  systematic and .cafefiiP'TuvestigationC     '  Ou   this   side .of    the .-river  "quartz"^'  piospecting. has   only   been  done' in   ���������  spots and comparatively  recently  but  in every instance with the best insults.

VILIFICATION STOPPED.  The determination on the part of  the British war authorities to suppress  6everal pro-Boer newspapers seems  to be hailed with satisfaction Across  the water. ���������  . W. T. Stead and Henry Labouchcre  own the two most pronounced ;pro-  Boer publications and having taken  up that side of the case have' led  themselves out to believe and eagerly  publish every vilification of British  officers ancl their methods that they  can get a hold of, no matter from  what source the Information has been  obtained. It is not as if they bad  devoted themselves conscientiously  and legitimately to criticizing mistakes of policy or actions that have  been made, but they simply have  taken sides with the enemies of their  country.  It will he remembered a few years  ago when .Major "Wilson and his  party died like heroes fighting thousands of Zulus their memory was vilified by Labouchere in. his publication, and there is no doubt that lie  and Stead simply take the course  they do for the purpose of gaining  cheap notoriety. Indeed notoriety of  this nature is all that serves these  men for fame, and it is only irglil  that steps should be taken to stop  their publication of lies .and slanders  about brave men who ;:i a number  of cases have given their lives for  their country.  of the Ecclesiastical Powers.  The inscription in law in the Delpit  case at last came up for argument  before Mr. Justice Archibald a few  days ago. : The question as stated by Mr. Justice Archibald at the  opening of the argument was simply  one. of law. The declaration in the  case does not ask that thc marriage  contract between the parties be set  aside, but states the Hen of marriage  having been broken by the judgment  of the ecclesiastical court, this court  decide as to the evil effects. The only  ' question therefore to decide .was  whether the ecclesiastical court had  jurisdiction to concel the marriage.  Mr. Taillefor. attorney for Mrs.  Delpit opened the argument by a  recital of the facts, which aro well  known, and admitted by both parties  up to a certain point.  He then went on to say- that the  plaintiff's case should bo thrown out  because the marriage was validly  celebrated according to law.'- He  quoted "the following articles of the  civil code, in support of his contention. ���������*���������'  128. Marriage must be celebrated  openly, by a competent ofiicer recognized by law. ,  329. All priests, rectors, ministers,  and other officers authorized by law  to keep t!registers of acts of civil  statutes are competent to solemnize  marriage.  The essential formalities for the  validity of a marriage wore there set  forth as publicity and competence ot  the functionary. In the present case  the competency of the officer was the  only question raised. The learned  advocate argued that all denominations were equal, under the law ln  this province. A competent officer is  one who is-authorized to keep registers of civil status. The civil co.de  does not require citizens to go before  ministers   of   their   own   faith.    Ro-  , * *  man Catholics could be married before a Methodist, a Presbyterian, or  as in this case, before a Unitarian  minister, provided the minister was  authorized to keep registers of civil  status, the marriage was valid before  thc law.  The  Two   Questions  Raised  Mr.  Lafleur,  K.C., counsel for Mrs.  Delpit   followed.       There     were   two  Despite thc fact that a large section of Canadians, particularly those  of Liberal proclivities, have assorted  that inter-imeprial preferential trade  is impossible, the matter is beins  seriously discussed iu the imperial  bouse of commons. A member of  influence and standing has introduced  the matter and the subject is attracting considerable attention. The idea  is to introduce scientific protection  to aid the industries of thc various  colonies. Thus discrimination would  be made in favor of Canadian goods in  the other colonies and they would  reciprocate. There is no reason why  all the colonies of the empire should  not protect themselves against foreign competition in this way and it  would introduce a feeling of mutual  dependency that would do a great  deal towards encouraging harmonious relations between the various portions of the empire. The question of  obtaining a preference ln the markets  of free trade. Britain is, however, a  ���������^verydiSerentrmauer.���������It���������would-mean-  in the case of Canadian wheat for  instance, an increase in the price of  foodstuffs and that would be unpopular. It has been asserted however that the absolute free trade  which at present esistn in England  has not been found tn hn an unmixed  blessine. and it has several ��������� times  been "rumored that Hon. Joseph  Chamberlain, secretary of state for  th������ colonies, is an ardent protectionist. Be that as it may. how-  over, there is no reason why there  should not be reciprocity between the  colonies.  o-  It does not seem clear to a groat  many people why the Conservative*  who have always been strongly In  favor of Inter Imperial preferential  trade should condemn the preference  ��������� given bv the Liberals to Groat Britain, fhe reason is simply that tha  manner in which Sir Wilfrid Laurier  gave Great Britain a preference on  her goods, was an utter violation of  the letter and spirit of Inter Imperial  preferential trade. The idea of a nre-  , ference, in trade matters was tn make  the various portions of the empire  dependent injon each other: that  what one colony could not produce  another would supply and thus a  great internal trade miKht be built  up that would solidify the empire for  all time. It is therefore obvious  that to build up such a trade the preference would have to be mutual ancl  as Sir Wilfrid Laurier got absolutely  nothing from Great Britain in return  for a reduction of duties his action  was diametrically opposed to the interests of Inter Imperial preferential  1 trade.  tinity could not bo termed an "impediment" according to ihe civil law.  according to the ecclesiastical law.  although it might be so regardod  This has however nothing to do with  the present court, however.  Mr. Justice Archibald���������"I have, always held that 'empechement' as referring to something between the  parties themselves."  Mr. Lafleur���������" Precisely; that is  thc legal meaning. It is an impediment that prevents the parties from  marrying at all. It has nothng to  do'with the competent officer. That  is a matter for this court. The only  defect aliened to exist in this case is  that the officer who celebrated the  marriage was not competent . It is a  misuse of language to say that tho  competence of the officer celebrating  the marriage constitutes an impediment.  Mr. Lafleur donied thc right or any  church to deprive an officer, duly appointed from exorcising the functions  conferred upon him by the elvil code.  Two Marriages Necessary  If it were held that people must  be married by the clergy of their  own church, it would be impossible  for a Mahommedan or a member of  tho Orthodox Greek Church to be  married at all in this country. It  would ba impossible for a Catholic  and a Protestant to be married. , They  would have to have two marriages,  and both would be in valid for one  of them.  His HoDor���������"You cannot have half  a marriage."  Mr.Laflenr���������"You cannot celebrate  marriage in two sections. It cannot  be imagined for an instant that the  egislature conceived any such absurdity as that. .  Mr. Lafleur quoted the cases ' of1  Laramee vs. Evans and Vaillancourt  vs. Lafontaine. and then took up the  second" point raised by the inscription in law: that the plaintiff did  not ask the court to annul the mar-  rage but merely to give civil effect  to an annulment already made. If  no annulment already was proved  the case fell to the ground.  It seems to me that the plaintiff,  with knowledge, assumed the ground  that the  ecclesiastial  tribunal had   a  questions raised by the inscription in right to  annul the  marriage  tie���������the  law.

If  the  articles quoted above did not authorize  ministers  to    celebrate    all   marriages   without    restricttion     to   thc  members of ther own church the last  mentioned  clause   would  be  superfluous.    Mr.   Lafleur  illustrated   this  by  the   case  of   divorced     persons     who  wished   to   remarry.       If   they   were  Catholics,   a   Catholic   priest     would  refuse to celebrate a second marriage  on   the ground  that  divorce was not  recogni7.ed  by his  church:    and they  could   not   be   remarried   by   anyone  else,   if   the   view     were  taken   that  people could only be married by   the  clergy ot  their  own  church.    In  the  same way,  members of the Anglican  community, after divorce, would  not  be remarried by an  Anglican clergyman,  without reference to  the  Bishop, according to the recommendation  of   the   Synod   now   sitting.    If     this  restricted   interpretation   were   placed  upon the code, people  who had been  divorced   would    not  be   able   to  get  married   nt   all,   if   divorce   was   not  approved by the church of which they  belonged.     If the  code    meant    that  Catholics could only be married  by a  catholic   priest,   the     latter   part   o������  particle 129 had no meaning.  Referring to article 127 of the code,  Mr. Lafleur maintained  that clandes-  the right of the civil court to decide  according to  the circumstances.  Discussed Guibord Case.  After discussion of the Guibord case  the  decision    of    the    privy council  thereon, Mr. Lafleur continued:  "Where do we find any authority  given to cccelesiastlcal tribunals to  deal with the nullity of marriage? It  it a tie which cannot be formed without the intervention of the state, and  although in this country marriages  are celebrated by ministers of religion, they are not acting in the  capacity of ministers of religion wnen  they are celebrating a marriage. They  are simply acting as ollieers of civil  status, as articles 22S' and 128 very  plainly sit forth. The law Is just  the same lu the province of Ontario.  Marriages are there celebrated by  ministers of different denominations. A man can ask to have the  marriage celebrated without any religions ceremony, and thc marriage  would be perfectly valid. The plaintiff rests his case on a previous annulment of the marriage by a tribunal  which has no right to annul marriages. He asks you to confirm an  invalidation which has no legal existence.  Mr. Bisaillon, K. C In hlfi reply,  laid down the principle that the Roman Catholic church, to which the  two   parties   In   this   case   belonged.  hold invalid by tho church on account  of an empechement dlrlmant, namely,  clandestinity. Clandestinity was held  to be an impediment not only in this  country, but in England as well, and  in' other countries. The Roman  Catholic church declared that its  members could be married only by  their parish priest or some other  regularly appointed at h'lB substitute,  and when this requirement was not  complied with the marriage was  rightly held to be null and void. The  Ecclesiastical court, before which this  caso had come, had therefore no other  course open to it, but to annul the  marriage.  The Judge's Difficulty.  Mr. Justice Archibald: "I am In  this difficulty: You do not oik that  I should set aside this marriage. You  only ask that I should declare that  It has been set aside, and that I  should give civil effect to the nullity  already pronounced by the Ecclesiastical court."  Mr. Bisallion: "I ask that it now  be declared In Its civil effects null.  If your honor chooses to substitute  yourself for the church���������either the  Catholic or Anglicanc hurch���������and declare that the religious marriage is  dissolved, the responsibility rests  upon you. But I hold that it is not  the law which makes the marriage.  The law' merely gives Its sanction to  the religious marriage, whether of  Catholcis, Protestants or Jews."  Mr. Justice Archibald: "We have  a number of articles in the code,  which, according to that view, ought  to be left to the canons of the church,  for the code seems to provide for the  celebration of marriage as a civil  contract. We have actions for  breaches of promise of marriage, and  we give damages. Do you contend  that under these conditions it is not  a civil contract?"  Mr.* Bisaillon: "Yes;'the damages  are for the, expense the lady must  have been put to and the loss of the  oportunlty of getting another loverv  If it is "held that marriage has no"  connection with religion, that view is  contrary to the history not only of  Canada, but of all other countries."  Mr. Justice Archibald: What  about the divorce bythe Imperial parliament? If it is a religious contract, and thero is no civil jurisdiction, parliament has no right lo interfere.  Mr. Bisaillon: Parliament mav  divorce people again and again; they  remain married iu the view of the  church.  Church Can Discipline .Them.  Mr. Justice Archibald. But not m  the eyes of the law.' Tho church ca:i  discipline them if they remarry, but  thoy cannot be punished for bigamy,  The Catholic church would probably  refuse them communion, but that is  all that could be done in such a case.  Mr. Bisaillon then'entered upon an  account of the evils wrought by clandestine marriages in England and  other countries. The history of the  French marriage law, the granting of  privileges to Protestants under Louis  XIV., and their revocation by the  Edict of Nantes, were dilated upon,  and the application of the provisions  of the Council of Trent to French  Canada. At the secession Catholics  were guaranteed "the free exercise of  their religion," and it was an evil  hour for Canada when the privileges  granted to the French Canadians were  attacked.  At this point the judge interposed,  and objected to the introduction ot  questions of 'race and rellgioa. ' "We  have nothing to do with such ques-,  "tions acre," ne saidT "Wo are here  to decide the law."  Entered Into Details.  Mr. Bi3aillon said he was sorry to  have enter into details which his  honor found tiresome, but,he had no  choice. This was the first time that  one part ot the province tad been set  against the other' with a view to  wresting rrom them one of the privileges secured to them ny treaty and  by law. He went on to say tnat'we  bad not civil marriage ln this province���������people could not go and ba'  married by Mayor rrefonialne���������wa  hart rellgiouB marrnage and the jurisdiction of the ecclesiastical authorities wa-j acknowledges us lu an em-  prctiement  cilramant.

C, wou:a thsr"-  fore continue the argument, which  was adjourned until this morning at  10 o'clocn..  outside thc ranks of his parliamentary followers to find strong enough  matorlal for the present covornment.  and he advances the opinion that the  lieutenants had much to do with the  weakness of Sir Charles Tupper's  recent misfortunes with the Conservative party. "Promising young men  are not enterinc the ranks of either  party in sufficient number."  Those who have followed parliamentary discussion closely for some  years past will be inclined to believe  that Its intellectual level has fallen,  and the reasons are not far to seek.  There are no burning questions before the electorate to compel public  attention and absorb the energies ot  our leading minds. We have no  leisured class, with hereditary wealth,  and a traditional impetus to occupy  themselves with public affairs as a  matter of social duty. Business life  offers far greater prizes in the way  of wealth and position, and nuccess-  ful business men do not feel hero,  as they do in England, that they will  elevate themselves in public esteem  by Joining the ranks of the politicians. Indeed, they have hardly  time to do so' if tUey were inclined,  for. as the Tirrils correspondent  points out. "the^cale of living; has  risen greatly during thc last 10 years  and men are too much occupied in  gaining money to supply thc new  needs to sacrifice their time for the  public life. The salaries paid in  official life have not kept pace with  tho Increased coBt of living, and the  income of a premier or cabinet minister at Ottawa is by no means adequate to the dignified maintenance of  his official position." This is so generally recognized that when a minister becomes rich, lt is felt that he  cannot have done so by proper means,  and his public influence declines accordingly. Men who are not in public life, seeing that it brings more  kicks than half-pence are inclined to  congratulate themsnlveB that they  have stayed out. and the politicians  who are able to look with satisfaction  on tEo pecuniary rewards of their  careers are few in number. As a rule  the man of ability who goes into  politics would have done better for  himself by turning his energies in  other directions.  All this is fairly clear, to anv intelligent and unbiassed observer, but  when it comes to question of remedy,  it is quite another matter. Here the  Times correspondent fails ua altogether. He has really no suggestion  to offer which he himself thinks  worth considering. To increase ministerial salaries would probably not  mend matters.- for the difference would  ~not he sufficient to attract the kind  of men we need, and there is' a 'very  general feeling that some-of tho ministers-are amply repaid for any real  service.they do the country. There  is no reason why every minister  should- feel himself called upon to  cut a big figure In the ncvilal world.  If he lives auietly and does his work  well he will be more popular than  if he hampers himself with debts by  overspending his income. Of course  there are positions in which considerable expenditure is unavoidable, and  there is no doubt that-the premier's  salary is absurdly small. A good  case could also be-made out for pay-'  ing a moderate allowance to an ex-  premier, especially so long as he retained the leadership of-the opposition, on similar lines to .the pension  given to ex-ministers - in England.  It is true that it is easier here than  in England for' a man to divert his  energies from political to commerlcal  life, but the leadership of a party necessarily absorbs t.he whole of a  man's time,and attention.  Beyond this, it does not seem that  much can be dono except by educating public opinion as .to the value  and importance ot public work. The  desire to enter public life should be.  recognized as a legitimate, and hon;  orable ambition, and not regarded as  a slgD of weak-minded eccentricity,  or a disinclination for '. work.- Sir  Wilfrid Laurier bas recently-laid spa-:  cial emphasis ou, the 'fact that the  Dominion is a difficult community'to  govern, on account of the varied interests involved. There Is no .doubt  that tho task requires % powers .of a  high order, if the work-is to'be done  efficiently, as well as successfully. It  is the bestting temptation of a demo-  cracv to starve its- highest-officials.  We should try to recognize that there  is enonomv as well as justice in the  old adage, "the laborer , is worthy of  his hire." - *   . '  ���������-������������������,,,' ',      '      " ' "  startled the minister. ������������������  Todd related' that he had led a  wild career-for many years ln Terras.  He had stolen 98; horses and killed  three men. '' But he repented his  sins. He' requested the evangelist to  make known his confession to the  world, saying that he was -willing to  answer'for his crimes.  Doctors not seldom give up a case, but  a mother never does. .While life lasts,  while there is a spark of .vitality which .  love's labor may fan into, a flame, she  toils untiringly for the child she brought  into the world.-   And sometimes where*  the doctor* fail .the .mother succeeds.

a slight acquaintance with McCray,

the-"Unitarian 'church of that city. _
*'��� -. "At -.this - time' 'both parties were
reputed as Catholics, and as a matter of course much > scandal arose cut
of the fact that.they presented themselves before' a -Protestant minister
to be married, .contrary to all the
laws' of the 'Catholic church.
-\"Such.a marriage aa this is declared by 'the Councl 'of Trent to be null
wherever the .decree to this effect has
been'duly "promulgated.-as in the case
of-the province of Quebec. A valid
marriage in the Catholic church.belng
consummated, cannot be' dissolved
except, by. the death of one of the
parties,- but such -a marriage as that
contracted' by Mr. Deplit and Miss
Cote is not regarded by the church
as a-marriage at aH,' owing to the
fact that it is' clandestine.
5 If Miss Cote had been' really baptized Protestant, the clandestinity
would,not have prevented thc validity of the act, and the-church would
have regarded the marriage as valid
though illicitly contracted, as the
Catholic party would have participated in her immunity from the law'
of clandestinity. -Hence, as Mr. Del-
pit has been always admittedly > a
Catholic, the question of validity in
the eves of the church turns upon
the Catholicity of Miss Cote. This
ladv was baptised a Catholic on
March Oth. 1S77."and, made-her first
communion" andv'-was^confirmed in
Montreal on Max- 24tb>18S8.
"She had never - renounced her
Catholic, faith, at.least;by any.public
declaration, and according^ to/.the
laws of the church she was to be
recognized as a Catholic subject to
those laws. Hence according to th'e
Church laws, she'could be married to
Mr. Delpit only,-'by* a Catholic priest,
and the church'/.' court -could come-
only to ono" decision, that her actual
marriage before a Unitarian , minister was null from the beginning, and
this was actually thp rlpcislou which

WHO OWNS THE COAL  How the Crow's  Nest Pass. Coal   Co.  The B. C. Southern and  the Dominion Government Divied Up.  In a   recent   interview    with    the  Province Mr. Geo. McL.   Brown   gave  the following lucid statement,  on   the  coal land situation in the Crow's Nest  Pass.   He said;  "Priorto the arrangement which  resulted in the construction of the  Brilish Columbia. Southern railway,  the chillier for that line was held by  the .same people, who subsequently  organized the Crow's Nest Pass Coal  Co., accjuiringat the time some 12,000  acres of coal situated in the vicinity of  Coal creek, and on which some preliminary development had been made.  These gentlemen in acquiring the  British Columbia Southern railway  charter, also acquired the provincial  land subsidy. A portioiijof this subsidy  (���������(insisted of a section lying lo the east  of Elk river, and .containing approximately some 200,000 acres, which had  been specifically set apart and reserved  for the purposes of the railway.  "As one of the considerations for  wliich the holders c>r the charter  consented to surrender it, which was  necessary, of course, before construction could be commenced/was that the  railway company should convey,  when earned, to thc Crow's Nest Pius  Coal company, these 250,000 acres,  which is thought to contain the coal of  that section of the country."  To proceed���������" this demand of the  holders of the 'rnil way 'chiii'ter was  finally accepted, with the following  modifications. The Dominion government looking to the protection of the  British Columbia, public generally, and  the industries of the province particu-  laily, insisted upon the conveyance to  the government of .r)0.000 acres, within  the coal area, this 50,000 acres to he  opened np or dealt with as might' be  seen fit only in the event of the coal  company charging the consumers of  British Columbia more than the maximum lor coal which the government  fixed at $2.00 per ton F. O. Si. at' the  mines.  . "It was also agreed thai, the British  Columbia, Southern Railway company  should retain six sections, or H.S11)  acres, within the same 230.000 acre  area: these seel ions were to 'ne selected,  after the government hud made its  choice of land, and then only simultaneously with the selection by I.he  coal company for itself, of a similar six  sections.  Moreover, the railway company was  not to he permitted lo select ils six  sections in one block; the arrangement  insisted upon by the holders of the  charter'was that the railway company  should select a section, and then the  coal company a, section, and so on  alternately until the six sections had  been defined, the railway .company  having uo two blocks adjoining one  another. Also bear this well in mind:  the understanding debarred both the  aovernment and the railway comiiaiiy  from developing the coal lands, which  would fall to them, under- this agreement, so long as the coal compaiiy  maintained in Biitish Columbia, h  price not exceeding the maximnn  fixed.  "So. we find, first, that at present  the rail wav company has no coal lands  at, ali: second, that it never will have  -lnot-e tliair-3,Si0iici-e*.-rati(l-those���������only  after the government makes its selection; third, that these railway acres  would not be in one solid block, but  in alternate sections of six hundred  and fortv acres each, making economical development diflicult: fourthly,  and most important point of all, tne  railway compnny has no power to  develop these 3,820 acres so long as the  coal people keep their agreement as to  the price in Biiti*-h Col u in hi i. But  these coal people cnn charge wh'U  they;like on the American side. Thus  von see, that beyond this potential  l'icrlit to these 3.StO acres, the railway  company. B. C, S. or C. P. R.. which  ever vou like to call it. has not. and  iievei- lias had any interest in the  much-talked about 230.000 acres of  coal lands."  ./.- /  To the Ladies:  We have just opened up a' large choice stock of  DRY GOODS, which is the best and only new  stock in the City.  ,The latest Styles and newest patterns that can  be purchased.
