The IIkkai.d learns on good authority that the management of Ihe  Ophir-Lade Gold Mining Syndicate  hits jusl purchased lhe famous Oyster.

These properties, (comprising eight  or nin clniins, are well known to be  exceedingly rich bolh on the surface  and at depth, nnd, together with Lh;*  r.ade group, on Gainer creek, will  Hive the Uphir-Lade people thu  opportunity of mulling one of the  biggest gold mining companies in the  province.

As large an al tendance -as possible is  earnestly "desired, the school trustee-,,  and no.doubt the city council ns-wel'.  being desirous that thc citizens should  bi������ fully informed as to .what' . is  intended lo be dune with'lhe money.  Liis also desirable that the voting on  Friday should ,l*e decisive enough to  fully disclose the feeling of the feeling  of the ratepayers. Having in view the  paucity of votes lecorded on the bylaw  for sidewalks iecem.lv. one cannot but  feel that however satisfactory it may  have been by way of giving the city  councilaiithority to*'r;iise the money.  it '���������certainly- cannot lie regarded its an  expression of the feeling of thc town.  Without wishing to' forestall any  remarks that may be made iit the  proposed, meet ing, the^wiiter. would  like to point'"out that nest Friday's  voting.will exhibit'to outsiders _ I he  measure of the citizens' opinion us lo  the future prosperity of" their own  town.    *  ���������      A."   ;   '���������   .

About $30 would  provide each_ child attending the  schools wi th a tiistefiinneilalTiTidT'lasp  commemorative -of au occasion, tin-  repetition . ofr ;which-*we hope will be  Ions.delayed." Probably Ih'esecretary  of the coronation committee wi 1 noi  think it too much trouble (1 have not  been able to ask him) lo tcreive  subscriptions' from - those-patriotic  citizens who approve of the foregoing  idea. At any rate the unc'e.'signed  would .be pleased to reie've and  acknowledge subscriptions, (howcvei  small) and apply them for this purpose.  IIiskky Floyd.  Trackmen Preparing for ,Next  Meeting of Arbitrators���������Will  Base Claim for Consideration  on Increased Cost of Living.  The ollieers of the Brotherhood ol"  Railway Truckmen are busy these days  iu lhe gathering of evidence to lay  befui'i* the board'of in bitraliriu -who  will further consider the claim- uf the  Canadian Pacilic miiintenaiue o f way  iticii at Montreal, .some time next  week.  When the arbitrators met in  Montreal some time ago to consider  the claims of lhe disaifecled employees  ofthe company, itvwas agreed thai if  the arbitrators ��������� would establish  miiiiuiiniis for section foremen anil  section men, .that, ihe wages of all  other classes could be worked mil  from that bisis, by the. committee and  the geuuril tii.iniigor.by allowing them  a pi nporlionate.increase. This, Chancellor Boyd acted upon when writing  the award, giving thu men .a twenty  per cent increase over the rate paid in  l.S07.~. -   ". ."    .  Since lhis award was made the men  claim i li:it there has been a.disposition  on the p-ut cl* the management' to  euchre' Ihem out nf the" advantages  which il should give Ihem, and that  an elTi.rL -was made lo shelve the  award on the score that it is not  surticieuily .explicit. The men do not  agree with lhis and are anxious to  have lhe ail angemunts can ied out us  thuy say it will, mean an advance of  twenty pei- cent from the first of May  fur lhe men over the entile system.  Tliey will i.'.idc.iwn* _to secure this ill  tbe final ,n hilraliou and to this end  are-gathering statistics for the purpose  of showing that' the wages i.f the  trackmen in lhe west have not kept,  pace wilh the advances in other  avenues of work nor with the cost of  living. These .statements "aie lieing  pu-piired with the greatest of caie unci  before being forwarded will he "sworn  to.    Nelson News.   *  The School By-Law.'  Before the next issue of The  Huh.vld the bylaw to raise the sum of  fcSOUO to add to tho $10,000 grant made  by the government-; for lhu erection  of a suitable and permanent school  building in the city will be voted on.  Tins Herald i*** informed that tliere is  likely   to   bo somo opposition  to tlie  passage of the bylaw. Ifc is to he  hoped that this will not prove correct,  for the very reason that Kevelstoke  should hnvo a school building both  modern and in keeping wilh the rapid  advancement of tho city. Itcvelstokc  wants a. school building for the  education of her children that will bo  a credit to the city and ono lhat, will  not ncid pa I ill ing loi some years I o  e.inu:. I'.v soinu it is claimed that the  cost of 'tho building is ton great, and  thai a cheaper building would do for  thc present. The fact is that iu the  end it will be found that llie erection  now of n builliug such as outlined  by the trustee:-, will be much cheaper.  Il is to the future that we must look  in taking inlo consideration the work  of the construction of a public school,  if oni* citizens have confidence in thc  future of the city they will, by their  vote on Friday, .-show to the outside  world that lhey have such conlidenci*.  A public meeting will bn held in the  Opera House on Thursday evening  when the question of this bylaw will  come up for discussion and it is hoped  there will be a, large aetendancc.  Personal"' "Paragraphs'" Pertaining to' Railway Men Picked up  By the Herald Man- on His  Daily Rounds.  There is a movement on foot among  the coiidnctois of tbe Canadian Pacific  railway, aiming tit the presentation of  ii demand for increased remuneration  and other concessions. The general  coiiiniillec! of the order is in session in  Montieal completing and perfecting  organization .- and deliberating on a  revision of.the schedule of w-iges,  which is now in force, somewhat after  ihe manner of the'trackmen and  lelegriphers, who-recently obtained  an advance in their scale of pay.

The Minister of Mines Promises  a Commission to Review the  Existing Tax of the Two Per  Cent.  In tlie hou-se on Friday lasl, Prior,  minister of mines, prietically-promised  thut a, royal commission would issue  after t.he house rose for the purpose of  reviewing the existing tax of two per  cent, upon llie value of IlioiniiH' output.  As the tux is now imposed, the value  of fhe ore on the dump is taken,  ���������deductions being of course made fur  freight and smelter treatment but no  provision being made for the costiof  mining. The minister in the course  of his remarks said he was prepared  lo admit lhat as it stood the tax bore  heavily upon some of the low guide  mines.  Thc virtual promise for the issuance  ot a royal commission came at the  close of the debate upon the bill lo  amend the Assessment net. In this  debate Smith Curtis took a prominent  part. Ku made a strong speech again***,  lhe existing undue taxation of the  mines, which,hesnid, in someiustanccs  amounted to fifty pe-r cent ot* the ti'-t  profits-of the companies operating.  Curtis went so far as to suggest that  in view of the depressed state of the  mining industry thegovernnient'should  forego all taxation upon the output, of  lhe metalliferous mines for a period nl  two years.

To the Editoh Herald :  Sir,���������To one who has been absent  from Kootenay for six months the  llistrict presents a more forlorn and  desponding appearance than it' did  during the days of the strike. If the  strike was thfi sole cause of ..this  deterioration there would he the hest  of seasons for believing that the old-  time proiperity would soon revisit us.  But as the Kootenays are not the only  mining camps at present suffering  from more or less stagnation there  must be other causes than strikes at  work to produce such depressing  effects as are apparent in nearly every  mining camp in British Columbia.  The heavy decline in copper and  silver prices is no doubt an important  factor in the - general dulness of the  mining industry, but this was beyond  our power to avert, and it also affects  every copper and silver lead mining  district in the world. We' must look  closer home for the chiif cause of the,  mining depression in this province'.*  The miserable, deviating and erratic  ���������policy of the provincial governments  for ��������� the past half decade 'or so has  much to answer for.  So much has beeu written aud  published concerning the unjust two  per cent tax on output and its  hardship on low grade properties that  I need not touch on it here, but there  are many other unjust discriminations'  against mining that have very rarely  been mentioned in the press. The  government is badly in want of money  and there is no industry in the  province that will stand the "squeez-'  ing" process so well as the mining  industry. Therefore, ever since it  became an assured fact that the mining  industry in this province would he  permanent the successivegovernments  at Victoria have been engage*.*, iu  '���������piling it on." Many of the-imbeciles  the people have sent to represent*  them in the legislature seem to think  that mining simply means the digging  out of mineral treasure from the sides  of any old mountain in the mining  _^_. sections of__the . province. -   Let. us  labor and money thrown away. His  iron cap may'i.ssny only "a trac*",  but he willingly puts in one assessment  at least.. Iron caps, as a rule, do not  inipiove much in out* assessment,  lint, say he decides to do tho work on  a group of three claims from which he  has obtained vu'u-'s ranging from  $2 50 to $7 per ton. He do**s $400  worth of work on each, $1200; pays the  $2.50 tax for recordingouchassessment  $'(0. Than,a.s the location, is inaeessihle  and packing expensive, he decides to  crown grant them and wait for bettor  times, till the advent of a rtilway  makes it possible to at least dn some  real development. The claims nre not  good enough to sell, but al" er all the  work he has done and lhe money he  has spent he does not like to l.-t them  run out. So lie g**ts them surveyed  and crown grantcd. which cost him  something over $1500 more, a total of  about $1(100 fur"the group.  The tax on crown grunted claim*-* not  being worked is 2.V. nn in-i-t*. or $12..">0  a year for a full claim. Tliis has been  the law of the province fur years, ami  thu claim owner goes'to llu* oxpi'ii***.*  of ciown granting his prnpi-rty in full  confidence that by ('(implying with  thnt law he is entitled to hold the  claims until such time ns he iu enabled  to woik them. Bat what cau he said  of the inttlligence of tho would In*  mining expert who advocated at the  Kaslo meeting the breaking of the  government's contract with claim  owners all the province over by  advising that the tax on idle crown  grunted claims be increased from 25c.  to $1 an acre? '  ln   defence  of   this   piece  of   rank  injustice to the prospector it was -slated  that   the   majority    of    idle    crown  granted   claim*,   were    held   hy   rich  companies   and foreign   corporations.  This I deny.   Two-thirds of the ci own  granted claims   that, are   not woikii:_;  today   are   held   by   piospectors   and  others to poor too develop then till the  facilities f'jr so doin<? are  obtainable  on easier terms than at present is the  case.     Rich   companies   and   loreigu  corporations do  not buy claims to let  them   lie   idle   and  unproductive.    A  crown granted claim   that is not being  worked   is   either   very   low grade or  very inaccessible.    The present tax of  25c.   an   acre is   not so steep that the  owner cannot   meet   it till  he cau do  some  more   work or   got   hold   of  a  company   to   develop   it.   But let the  government act on the   advice'or  this  sapient  philanthropist who so kiudlv  points out the   best-way  to increase  the   revenue   from   mining..     Let the  government increase the  tax to $1 an  acre���������what would be the result? Why.  two thirds   of    the    crown     granted  claims, that   are   today   paying    the  government a  revenue  would simply  be  allowed   to   slide,  and the govern-  ���������ment would get less from   that  source  instead  of   more.      A   claim   may be  good   enough-.to   retain   on a 25c. per  acre   tax   th.it   would   not   be   worth  holding on  a dollar tax,   To increase  the   tax   on   crown    granted    claims  (Continued on  Page Three)  $S=������ ONION -^agr  Cigar  Factory  REVELSTOKK,   B.C.

McLEAN  & CO    1  contrast the treatment of, the mining  industry at thehandsof the legislature  with that of some other industry, say-  ranching.  The prospector's life -is a hard one.  Buoyed up with anticipation and  hopes of " striking it rich some day,"  he goes out into the mountains and  . trackless wilds with his grub and  blankets on a pack horse or on his  own back, and, and after weeks or  months of untiring activity and hard  living he maycome back t<> civilization  with a few good locations, or. as is not  infrequently the case,. with a whole  .summer wasted in fruitless search.  l*"or the privilege of doing this he pays  the government a tax of $5 a year,  and when he takes out his licence he  is nearly always corralled by the  o(Tlcial.who acts as government agt-nt,  mining recorder and tax collector, and  held up for $3 more for revenue tax.  Thus he has to pay $8 a year for the  privilege of going out in the wilderne.-s  to hunt for iron caps. Against this  taxation no complaint has ever been  made by the prospector, and none is  likely to be. , u  But when the prospector has located  his iron caps he has to pay-, the  government $2 50 for recording each  claim; another $2.50 for recording  each assessment, and another $2.50  for each bill of sale he gives his  partners. This he has always subi  mitted to with good grace and made  no kislc. .But when a conglomeration,  of pseudo'mining inen, 'witV a crass  ignorance that is astonishing considering their environments, proceed to  pass a resolution recommending the  government to increase the recording  fee from $2.50 to $12.50 it is high time  to kick. Was it the aim of the Kaslo  convention ot wiseacres to drive the  prospector from the province entirely?  As a rule the prospector recoids  three claims for every one he holds on  to. The first assessment may show  him that the cla'm is no go-id, ar-d hi*  GET IN EARLY  FOB FIRST  I  11  ���������**  at.,  m  LOTS NOW FOR SALE IN THE BANNER  GAMP OF FISH RIVER  L D S "  The Centre for all the Bigv Free Milling Gold  Groups of Fish River, Pool Creek, Etc.

The  claim owner hns no tiuifuce light on  the 111it1e1.il claim be i*> taxed 2*>c. an  nrre for. The rancher's taxes amount  lo about 1 l*k\ por acre before he gets  tii== title deeds and about Sc. an acre  nfier he has paid for the land at $1 an  acre. But the rancher has full surface  rights. The land is his absolutely and  his heirs in perpetuity. If the claim  owner wishes to obtain the surface  tights lie has to pay the government  $."11111 iicru I'or it. after spending $500  per claini to get il crown granted.  There seems lobe nnjiistdiscriinination  against mining in this.  The rancher ran take up land, live  on il (tiul al������o live olT il) for yaars, and  then sell il, without ever having paid  the government a cent of purchase  money. The taxes be would pay oil  Ii20 acres, at 1 1 Ic. per acre, would be  $1 a year, while for three full claims,  or 1.T0 acres the prospector pays $37 50.  and this after tolling him $1000 for  ei own graining; anil he would still  have to pay sjio an acre, or ������750, before  be could obtain the surface rights.  Then again I hn rancher is allowed lima,  a great deal of lime, in which to pay  up. But lei the claim owner neglect  to lake out his license on or before the  3IJI May, or fail to record his as*ess--  'meiit in due time, or pay his 23c. per  acre tax, he will quickly lind ha has  lost his title to lhe property ns well as  all lhe money he has put into it.  1 know of ranchers who pre-empted  tlieit land years  ago   and   have never  yet heen called on to pay for it, or any  portion of it.   The government seems  to have lost all track of thetn.    Iknow  of   instances    where    ranches    have  changed   hands    several  times,, each  time at   enhanced   values, -and  not n  cent has been paid the government for  it.even ,by the first pra emptor.   Then  note   the   disparity   in   taxation:     A  rancher owning   $50,000 worth of land  pays about $50  a   year  in taxes���������le9*  than the average prospector, whodoes  not own a. foot   of  land.'*   A mining  comoany has to   pay   lhe government  a tax of S500   (more   or less, according  to capitalisation)   as   registration   fee,  $100 a year   as  license' foe and nearly  another fjilOO a year for miner's licenses,  recording fees,   etc.    Of  the   two per  cent, tax on   output   I   say    nothing,  because the  number of mineral claims  tbat ever attain   to   an   "output" are  infuuteHimally  small^ compared  with  lhe number    located' ~ and". ��������� also  the  number worked. - -  : The example set by the government  of "holdingup" the minfugindustry  is greedily followed by the latlwas'S,  coal companies, teamsters and raiich-  eis, who one and all] endeavor to place  on mining the most extortionate  charges that it will possihlv bear. As  the industry that btings in population,  tbat builds up cities in the erstwhile  wilderness, that creates traffic tor'the  railways and markets for the farmer,  that pays higher wages and more  revenue than any other industry in  the province���������the .mining industry is  deserving of fairer treatment than it  is now receiving in British Columbia,  and if fairer treatment is not accorded,  and that' very soon, the present'de-  pression will be intensified, nut only in  Rossland, but in other camps where it  cannot-be said that: the cause-was  "solely the strike."  The government must cease this  discrimination against'ininin^. Mining  men, both employers and employed,  must see to it that they are represented in the legislature by men who have  a thorough knowledge of mining and  its needs. And the prospector, that  lone wanderer ' whose discoveries  create new mining camps, must not  oe ��������� forgotten or overlooked. "' Hia  -burdens-must-nofc=-be���������increased^ even ^_  for the sake of alleviating the owners  tax on output; Tliere are only a few  members of the legislature.who really  understand what it costs to "develop a  mining propertyto the shipping point,  and these few are swamped by the  know-nothings who are positive that  mining.must be a lucrative calling.else  there would not be so many who ������re  willing to pour thousands of dollars  into a hole iu the ground, forgetting,  tbat for one successful mine there are  a score of total failures. And so they  cry: "Tax it, tax it for all its worth."  Oom Paul Kruger held that same idea,  but no doubt the old gentlemen now  sees lhe follv of it and wishes he had  acted otherwise.  But if our sapient legislature will  persist in squeezing money out of the  mining industry for no better purpose  than handing it over to self seeking  railway contractors it will only remain  ior mining companies to go ������step  fin ther in the direction they hav������  already taken, and instead of a partial  shutdown let it be a tight shutdown.  Then we shall see what we shall see.  The government in ils anxiety to get  revenue may then have leisuie to turn  its attention to the thousands of acres  of wild lands held almost entirely free  of taxation by cattle kings and others  who deny their fellow men the right  to buy a single acre. Possibly some  revenue might be obtained that way.  This policy ot making fish of one  industry and flrsh of another hu  about reached its limit.  Yours truly,  It. XV. Northey.
