In tho infant  state of mining, which exists in  Kootenay both that industry arid all  others connected with it lequire every  kind of governmental and municipal  assistance and protection possible.  They cannot possibly get on their feet  without it. But it is not only this  consideration' doubtless wliich supplied the motive, which caused the  good citizens of Kaslo to come forward  in this -trilling manner. They no  doubt recognize the fact, whicli mubt  be apparent to every one, who takea  thetiouble to consider the t-ituntion,  that the question of the- future commercial capital of Kootenay has uot  yet heen by any means settled. It i.s  by no means certain that tbe places  now leading in the lace, will come out  on top at the finish. The prize is one  which is going to bo well woith  having. In making their decision in  favor of the smelter bonus, Kaslo has  proved that she at all events possesses  one factor, which make'** for ultimate  success ancl that is���������the right, kind  of citizens.

"   "  FROM m_ INSIDE.  The Conspiracy Between the Crow's  Nest Coal Co. and the American Smelting Trust Disclosed.  William Blakemore, who "for some  time was prominently identified with  the management of the Ciow's Nest  Pass Coal Company, and who is doubtless .well infoimed us to the known  resources ot the company's collieries  and the probable extent of the coal  fields, has contiibuted io the .Montreal  Witness un excellent article ou the  controversy now being cairied on with  lespect to the gi anting of the Hill  railway charter in East, Kootenay.  From his personal knowledge ot tho  giound Mr. Blakemoiesiiys lie regards  the present move as nothing bhciit of a  combination between the Crow's Nest  P*--s Coal Company and tho Cnited  States trusts, lepresented by Hill, to  ell'ect a, complete corner on thu coal  supply of East Kootenay, and he gives  a very good reason for such belief.  After dealing with the purely railway  phase of the question, in which he  bhows that Hill has an eastern as well  as a western entrance into the coal  lields at piesent, Mr. Blnkemore says:  "For many years it has been known  that the Crow's, Nest Pass coal aieas  extend southeily through the Noith  Kootenay Pass and for some unascertained distance into what is known as  the Wigwam countiy. and the Great  Northern Riilway Company has had  engineers and piospecttus at work  .Irving to find the extension of Fhfs  cn.il Held south of the line.

As the output of coal in BrilUh  Columbia, is rapidly increasing and  attention is now being directed to its  iron depohits, it appears as though it  will not be|long before the mineral  pioduction of the province will be  greater, not only in the total, as at  piesenl, but ns well in all the indivi  dual minerals' (excepting nic-kel and  platinum), than that ofthe lar laiger  ,'iiotiof the Dominion lying east ot the  Rocky mountains.���������Western Mining  World. ��������� ,  this direi (ion is well within Canadian  tc-iiitmy.

"This is undoubtedly the true inwardness- of��������� tbe-situation-and���������the  moial is easily drawn. It is that whilst  the application for the railway,charter  should be considered ent'uely upon its  merits as a transpoitationquestion and  as affecting lhe mining and smelling  industries of the piovince, the obvious  intention of the move should lead the  government at. once to multe theii*  selection of the 50,000 acres to which  they aie entitled, and to see that these  areas are secured in- exact accordance  with'the wording of the charter, which  specifies that tbey should be "of equal"  value, as coal lands, with the residue  of the coal lands.' It should also be  made clear, as indeed it is'from -the  wording of the clause lefprrcd to, that  the government is- under no compulsion  whatever to lock up these ureas and  simply to keep them as a card up  their sleeves, but that - they - have  absolute fieedoin to deal with them at,  any time us they may see fit in the  interests of the country, and tue  perfectly nt liberty to -allow them  to be developed Just as.and when they  like."* "  TO THE SllAKKHOLDEHS 'OF   '-.IIE  Limited. Liability :  >  LADIES AND GENTLEMEN :'  Your Directors desire to welcome you as Shareholders in the Company  and of congratulating you upon the very satisfactoiy progress the Company  has made during the pastrfew months.  The Company is on a sound liiiancii'il basis and the Treasury shares-Hnd  readv sales at twenty-live cunts per share. Your Directors 'feel safe in  predicting that, hefoie the end of the appioaching season the shaves will have  increased in value. It is'the intention to at once increase the force of men  which has been working all wintei on the properly, and to-push the development with all speed, the object being to prove np as much oie by next  summer as possible.       l i  As the development wink proceeded the indications were of such  mngnitude that yonr Directors deemed it advisable to secuie the land lying  below the present tunnels with the object ot providing a suitable tunnel site  tor future operations. This land thus acquired adjoins the' '"Commander"  and carries a fine ledge of copper'ore,- which would be cut in running a  tunnel  to tap   the'present   leads   on   the   " Connnandei" and "Standard."  The Company is now the owner of ten mineral claims containing five  liundred acres of valuable mineial land as follows: The'" Standard," "Monitor." "Black Bear." .'* Criterion," "Iron Hill," ������������������ lion Chest," '��������� Contiactor,"  "Winnebago,"   '��������� Commitnder," and "Downie Fraction " mineral claims.  A large amount of "woik has bpen done on the Company's properties.  The development work done this' winter h is been eminently satisfactory. ,In  i tinning No. 3 crooscnt^tunnel it became apparent- that the ledge was one'of  immense width, so nuich ao that it was'deemed advisable to cut it at an angle  to keep working inoi e towaids a point below "the.1 bottom of ������"haft iivNo. 2  tunnel. This necessitated running very nearly parallel with the lead, but so  as to gradually crosscut it; and while, this of necessity takes a longer time to  get through the ledge 'yet the management deemed that this was more than  counterbalanced by.the depth obtained. This tunnel has now been run 365  feet, the last ninety;feet being thi,onghi altered diorite and hlocky black clay  slate nnd serpentine, "heavily mineralized with iron and copper, certain signs  of a large ore body ahead.'. Fiom the surface indications it is expected that  another forty or fifty feet will uncover the in e bod v. -The indiCitions could  not be better and your.

THE COOK CHARGES  The senate are to be congratulated  on taking the Initiative ln investigating the "Cook" charges. During the  last election Mr. Cook, a life long  Eiberal and a wealthy man, declared  that he had been offered a seat in  tiie senate on payment of a large sum  of money. This statement was denied  by the government and the Investigation now obtained is the outcome.  Dr. Landerkin, the newly appointed  senator, opposed the granting of the  investigation on the ground of it  being beneath the dignity of the  senate to take cognizance of the utterances of Mr. Cook ln the matter,  and accused Sir Mackenzie Bowell o������  partizanshlp ln moving for an enquiry. It certainly appears from Dr.  Xanderkin's objections as if there were  something in the affair after all. It  is hard to see how Mackenzie Bowell  could make partizan capital out of  the affair unless something discreditable to the government were  proved.     And    ir"     that     is   so   the  A  HEATHEN   CUSTOM.  AN INCIDENT OF   THE FAR NORTH.  A Gruesome Story.    Strange Tale of  Indian Superstition.  Reports keep constantly coming  from the north ot the presence of  Weet-i-gows among the Indians and  lheir consequent terror.  Weetigow is the name bestowed by  the tribes of Athabaska and Peace  river on those of their number who  become violently mad and who are  supposed to develop cannibal tendencies.  The rumor of the presence of a  Weetigow will cause the Indians to  remove permanent vilages and make  "trek3" ot hundreds of miles.  Harmless lunatics are often murdered with awful Pagan rites by the  Indians under the influence of superstitious terror. The mislsonarlea and  Hudson's Bay traders do all ln their  power to allay this strange superstition and doubtless by their influence save many, poor demented  Indians from a barbarous death at  thc hands of their fellows.  A few years ago n suspected  Weetigow was put to death in a most  barbarous manner.  In the spring of the year the medicine man of a tribe of Indians living  near Wabiscow prophesied that in the  early winter a Weetigow would arrive at their village traveling by a  certain trail and he exhorted his  tribesmen to be on the outlook and  immediately put him to death.  Always superstitious the Indians  were affected by this warning and as  the time when the Weetigow was  supposed to appear approached the  little community watched fearfully  for each new arrival. It happened  that a young Indian who had boon  deeply impressed by the warnings of  the medicine man had in the early  fall accompanied by his wife and two  young children left the village on a  trip to a trading point. In new environments and away from his tribe  the Indian apparently forgot all about  the Weetigow until one day in winter  on his homeward journey he suddenly exclaimed to his squaw that they  were on the trail that the Weetigow  was supposed to travel, and. this was  the time of the arrival. After saying  this he sank inlo silence and all  through the winter day he trudged  along behind the dog sleigh containing his children and his baggage.  When darkness fell they camped,  but the man sat apart in a dejected  attitude, while' the woman bustled  around and made the camp, nor when  the travelers' meal was cooked would  he eat any food. The poor woman  put the two infants to sleep and as  the shadows darkened crouched by  tho flre and ever and again fed it  anew casting from time to time  furtive glances in tho direction of  her husband, who shrouded in his  Blanket, impervious alike to cold and  fatigue, sat apart a solitary figure.  And so the long night wore on the  silence all unbroken save by the  surging and sighing of tho wind in  tho pine trees and tho crackle of the  flre, fed from time to time with dry  sticks. The night had worn half  through in this manner wnen all at  once from away over a hill came the  howl  of  a  coyote    beginning    in  ji  sooner the charges are probed to the j Thonged* ^ *"* ^'^ W"h  bottom the better.  cadence    Inexpressibly  I hideous   and    horrible.

Herr Von Buelo has made in tiie  relcnstag a long defence of Kaiser  Wllhelm's actions during ids lv-cent  visit to England. The parliamentary  idea is growing in the iuthcrland.

Perhaps that fact may  have something to do with Hon.  William Mulock's visit to the Antipodes. It would be too bad if another  Canadian were to exchange his questionable democracy for a verv tangible title.

The effect of the ghascy  cry of the coj;oto on thc Indian  was startling ih the extreme. As if  galvanized Into action ho bounded to  his feet, cast aside his blanket and  leaping into the circle or light shed  by the fire he seized one of the  sleeping children . shouting that it  | was moose and he was a wolf and  I must devour it. There is no doubt  the poor child would have been  killed there and then had it not been  for the devotion of tho mother who  sprang upon her husband antl took  the little one from him. All night  long she stood watch over thc  children fighting off with desperate  energy the attacks of her busbanu.  Towards mornlngthc attack of mania  .wore off and by tbe time the sun  came creaping over the pine trees tho  unhappy couple were sitting-side by  side at the lire. Thc man declared  that he was the Weetigow spoken of  by the medicine man and urged his  wife to go and leave him lest the  devil "which had possessed him should  return _and'_he -would i-tpvr.nr,. his  children. With heroic fortitude, however, she determined to remain with  bim. They were yet two days journey from home and while the man  was perfectly well during the day each  night the terrible experiences were  enacted over again. When the Indian  village was reached thc poor squaw  did everything in her power to keep  all knowledge of her husband's mania  from the other Indians. The mania  only affected him at night and he  was perfectly sane am! lucid during  the clay and talked freely about his  unhappy condition.  It happened thai thn unhappy  man's fathpr was a headman of the  vlllaei* and somehow or other he  found out that. 1i!r son was a Weetigow and as in duty bound according  to usage he called a council of tho  men to ilellber.it>- whnl was to he  done. rt was unanimously decider!  t" kill the man.

The following is the full test of the  address of Senator Cox, tho president  of the Crow's Nest Coal company, at  the annual meeting which took place  at Toronto on March 1st:  "In congratulating you upon the  success of the last year's operations,  it may be worth while to refer to tho  erroneous ideas that have gono abroad  with regard to the management and  control of the Crow's Nest Pass Coal  company. We are, ln every respect,  a Canadian enterprise, with a large  majority of Canadian stockholders,  under Canadian control and management, and are.-.-givlng employment to  a great forco ���������* of labor on Canadian  soil. We aro developing Canada's natural resources in one of the most important economic minerals, and are  building up an immense Canadian industry, which Is bringing wealth to  the Dominion, and which, we feel assured, will constitute a most Important factor in the Canadian industrial development of the future, unless  our operations are restricted by a  limited market and Inadequate railway facilities.  "It affords mc. great pleasure to  anounce that wo aro prevared to proceed at once with construction and  development work involving an Immediate expenditure of J835.00O, and  we already havo tho money ln the  treasury of the company for this purpose. This largo sum does not include tho railway project, to which I  will refor later, but will be devoted  exclusively to development work, the  building of coke ovens, dwellings,  offices, nnd other works in connection  with the coal and coke Industry of tho  company. We intend to build at Fernie, Michel, and at another suitable  point, 720 coko ovens, which will involve an expenditure of $540,000  undor this head alone. We will then  have 1,032 ovens, which will Increase  our capacity for coke Droductlon from  ovor 450 tons a day as at present, to  moro than 1,500 tons Der day. Our  expenditure will also" include moro  than a quarter of a million dollars on  mine .Improvements. offlces and  miners' dwellings.  "These expendtitures and the ex-  tenslvo mining and coke-producing  operations that are to follow will  create and maintain two new towns  in the coal district aa large as Fernie,  which now owes its pxlstence to the  works carried on by this company.  "There is a prospective demand,  provided wo obtain access to the American market, as I hereafter shall  mention, for 4.500 tons of coal per  day within a year, and in three years,  we expect to increase our output  to about 6,000 tons of coal, per day,  a large portion of which will bo converted into coke in our ovens, and  within five years we expect to have a  pay roll of fully 810,000 per day,  which will he sufficient t.o maintain  three important industrial centres in  the coal district  "All business men will at once  realize how important such a devel  opment will he to the ��������� country at  large, as mining camps are invariably  extensive consumers of supplies. Not  only will there he. tho direct employment for several thousand additional  Canadian working men. but a new  and most extensive demand will be  created for-the products of Canadian  factories in tho east, and the food  supplies from the western farms and  cattle ranches.  "It is only- fair to you. however, to  state that thc present demand of  British Columbia for coal and coke  would not justify ilny -.ui-h exnendi-  tures as wc propose to make. This is  self evident when I state that the  present demand of British Columbia  does not exceed 1,000 tons of coke  and coal per day. and we cannot expect this demand to increase in tho  near future, even under thc most  favorable conditions, so as to justify  such  expenditures.  "In order that we may proceed  with this development it will be absolutely necessary to secure access to  the American markets by a route that  will put us in a-position to successfully compete with the coal and coke  producers already in the field If  denied access to the American mar  kets except by roundabout routes; if  delayed in our operations bv legisla  tive obstructions; if prevented in  any way from cutting down the cost  ot production to the narrowest possible margin, our success in the field  will be proportionately cramped and  it will be quite imposislble to undertake the development now proposed  "Recognizing, therefore, the necessity of obtaining direct access to the  adjacent markets of the United States  an-applieation-has-bedh~i_ia3e-������b par"  liament by five of your directors for a  charter to build a railwav from the  coal fields to the boundary, where it  is intended to connect with a spur  Jenning3,     on   the    Great  line** from  Northern railway."This is simply an  effort to secure an entrance by the  best possible route to an almost unlimited market for coal and coke,  where we must meet the keenest competition, and without thi.s market any  large development of these* Hrltlsh  Columbia coal fields wil] be practically impossible.  "The.fear has been expressed in  some quarters that the establishment  of railway connection between the  Crow's Nest coal fields and the Groat  Northern railway system will deprive  Cnn Canadian mining and smelting Industries of a suply of coke and coal,  and that thn company may create a.  shortage In thf. Canadian supply to  Iwnr-flt American smelting Industries.  Thern fears arr* groundless. From  rrcologlcal rnporl.q It appears that  tliuiv- are ovor 2.--0.000 acres of coal  binds in thc Crow's Nost country containing a supply of coal which is ron-  crilec! by all aiithsrif.if.'i to be* practically oxliaii-slless, it being estimated  that there arc In this area 20.000.000-  000 tons of coal. This would adipit  of an average output of 20.000 ton.:  per day, allowing 300 working days  per year, for 6.000 years. This is  entirely independent of the immense  coal areas In Alberta and in other  parts of British Columbia.  We are at present prepared to'enter into time contracts "with the  smelters of Hrltlsh Columbia to supply any cuantlties of coal or coke  they may require, but so far lis the  Inr-.-i! sunplv Ir concerned .'ts safety-  can be best assured by such development of thc Crow's NPSt -lino" ir  will h" made poKslhb. hy the building  C.  the proposed  line of railway.  "Successful operation ot the rainpii  on p. large xcnle would ho fp-.posslbl'*  if our market, wero limited to British  Columbia, and it were subject to thp  fluctuations we have experienced Inst  year.  "With an immense coal and coke Industry in operation, turning out from  six to ten thousand tons of coal a  day. thc    British    Columbia ameltora  open up without notice as often" aa  .they may, feel inclined, and fhe  change would not be felt The sine.-'  ters now in operation on'the Canadian  side only require about 300-tons of  coko per day. If we are restricted as  to markets, there will be higher Initial cost, risk of suspension through  accidents, difficulty in securing labor,  and in meeting any variation in the  demand.  "Although thero is an immense area  of coal in the Crow's Nest country  that is of the best Quality for coking,  we should not harbor the delusion  that the district has all the coking  coal on the continent. There will be  competition from the existing sources  of supply���������from Cokedale, on Puget  Sound, Pennsylvania, West Virginia.  Utah and Colorado. There are also  immense coal -deposits in Montana.  Washington, and other places, which  may prove, when tested, to be of good  coking quality.  "To enter, and hold this market,  which means from 6,000 to 6,000 tons  of coal per day, the Crow'a N������at Pass  Coal company must have the necessary railway facilities available, and  that is why it is absolutely necessary  to build the proposed spur.  "Thero is hardly an industry so  universaly beneficial to a country as  coal mining and coke making for  export trade. The coal and coko are  both brought to the last stage of  perfection before being shipped out.  All labor is expended on them in the  country, and there is nothing further  to bo done with thorn except to con-  sumo them. Not so with logs, not so  with lumber, not so with pulp, with  wheat, with wool, and many other  products exported. Every dollar that  comes In to tho country for coal or  coke exports makes the country just  that much richer. The farmer, the  rancher, tho miller, the merchant and  the maufacturers. will all profit. There  will also be an enormous direct revenue to tho British Columbia government from the royalty. That government Is now deriving a revenue  of about $100 a day from our present  operations.  "In addition' to gthe development of  the coal and' coke' industry, the proposed railway will open up a prospect, and an assured prospect, of  smelting development, which will  prove, from a public standpoint, of  the very greatest importance.  "Tbe success of the smelting industry depends upon the ability to  assemble tho various materials essential to profitable smelting' at-'the  lowest possible cost, and if the proposed line ' of railway is built, connecting tho Crow's Nest fields with  the American railway systems, the  balance of advantage will be decidedly in favor of the Canadian side as  the place for establishing a large  and profitable smelting industry. The  Canadian people have but to improve  their opportunity to stand out ofthe  way, and let the good fortune ln.  "In order to illustrate what I have  said, permit me" to point out how  suitable a place Fernie. or some  point adjacent thereto, would- be for  the establishment of a. smelting industry. There we havo the coke  without any charge for hauling,-while,  to carry it to any smelting point  south of the line would involve a  hauling charge, as well as an American duty of 60c per ton. The limestone required is to be found at  Fernie. with no expense except the  cost of quarrying.  "Tho'lead ores" of Southern British  Columbia are now seeking a market  which is almost impossible for them  tofind. ahd those adjacent to the coal  field could, at a trifling cost for  transportation, be laid down at Fernie. or some other convenient point.  The dry ores 'necessary to mako  workable and profitable mixtures and  blends are not at present to be  found in British Columbia, but are  found through the adjacent mining  states along the lines and connections of the Great' Northern and  Northern Pacific railways: and the  ore cars taking the coal and coke  from the mines at Fernie to supply  the railways and established industries in these states, Instead of coming back empty, would at a low  cost for transportation, bring back  these dry ores to such a smelter.  There is no point south of the  boundary line where a smelting industry could so easily or so profitably  bo established.  "If a smelting industry for Canadian ores were established south of  the' line, there ��������� will be ,as' above  mentioned, the cost of transportation  of the coke to the_;--site.- of the  proposed smelter, and the American duty on the lead ores entering  the .United States, which, upon the  quality of oro found.in some of the  best mines in British Columbia-would  mining and other enterprlseo in British Columbia. These ' benefits are  self-evident.' ,     ���������-���������.'.    v _.     ,v'v   :  "In every lead mine -there are  masses of ore that will not pay at  the present rate for treatment, in  every camp there are propositions  and mines just too lean to tempt  operators and investors. Every dollar taken oft the charge for treatment means thousands of tons more  ot ore available and proportionately  swells the pay roll of every camp.  Every dollar reduction in smelter  charges widens the paystreak ot every  mine, and brings new mines into the  paying class.  __, ",\- would be a great misfortune to  British Columbia and to the Dominion atlarge if this opportunity should  be lost through the failure to seenre  adequate means of transportation.  There are rival projects south of the  boundary. Immense coal areas in the  states of Washington and Montana  aro in the process- of development,  and if. the parties interested in these  properties once, secure possession of  of and control of the market in these  states for coal and coke, I fear the  coal and coke of British Columbia  will stand a very poor chance of ever  taking it from them.  "The promoters of this railway ask  no cash bonus or land' grant of any  kind; they simply desire.the opportunity of expending their own money  to construct a railway which will be  of great public benefit  "We now have a prospect of building up a city as large as Butte in  tho Crow's Nest coal district; and  I cannot think it possible that either  the parliament of Canada or the  legislature of British Columbia will  place any barrier in tho way of the  industrial development of our country, or will adopt a course which may  delay that development half a century.,. I .therefore look forward with  confidence to a charter being granted; and this being done, the develop-  men which I have outlined will be  at once' preceded with; but unless  the charter is granted, the development outlined cannot be undertaken."  TRIED TO BREAK JAIL  The Scheme. However, Was Frustrated  A cleverly concocted scheme for a  jail delivery at the state prison at  Stillwater, Minn., was frustrated by  Warden Wolfer, and one of the  guards at the prison whose name, the  warden chooses not to give out until  after arrests have been- made, languishes in Washington county jail.  It is said a notorious woman has  been apprehended as an accomplice.  The prisoner wbo was to be aided  in an attempt to escape* is Edward  Lelnnd, sent from Minneapolis in  October, 1899, to serve 10 years for  robbery.  The guard received $435* for his  share in the work and became associated with another guard, who has  since left prison. Leland'a sweetheart's plan was formed in December.

London, March 9.���������The Daily Chronicle, referring to the armistice of  Pretoria, says:  "We learn that the untiring agent  in bringing about the negotiations  was Mrs. Botha, who was deeply affected by the hopeless plight of the  Boers and did her utmost to induce  her husband to laccept the .British  terms. Unfortunatly, the meeting of  February 27 was limited to Botha's  request to know Kitchener'.-, terms.  "Lord Kitchener replied that an  armistice would be granted to nil  who surrendered aa well as to ali  prisoners, except thoBe Cape Dutch  who, heing British BUbJecu..' had actT  lvely followed Boer resistance. Gen-*  oral De Wet and Mr. Steyn wore, however, expressly excluded irom tho  amnesty."  "Lord Kitchener further promised  that if peace wore con;*' iled 'he  government would assst in rebuilding the farmhouses and other buildings destroyed under military exigencies and reinstate tho lawful owners  and would help" them stock their  farms. Thoso guilty of acts of treachery would be excluded rrom the  benefits.  "General Botha appeared satisfied  with the condition and an armistce  being arranged, ho promised to consult his officers, a vast majority of  whom accepted the terms.  "De Wet any Steyn hoth remained  irreconcilable. They declined any  terms. De Wet adding that on his  part the war had become one of revenge and ,he intended to do all the  mischief he' could.  "It is probable that the original  armistice of a week has been extended. It is belieTed that the remainder of General Botha's officers  have now been won around and that  he is formally to submit to Lord  Kitchener on March 11, when his  force will . surrender to General  French.  "According to information Lord  Kitchener's dispositions had made  the speedy capture of General Botha's  force quite certain.- General Botha  frankly accepted the situation and  was treated by Lord Kitchener at  both interviews with the greatest  consideration."

Messrs Charlton. Hughes and Robinson (West Elgin), followed and opposed the motion."  R. 'L.

Mr.  Bourassa's sneech had ' no -relevancy  to the motion. Mr. Borden said he  was readv to vote against the aues-  tion even before hearing the eloquent  speech of-the prime minister.
