I.  \.y  NELSON,  BRITISH  COLUMBIA,  SATURDAY, FEBRUARY  20, 89;  TWO   DOLLARS  A YEAR.  SPEECHES   MEANT  TO   DECEIVE.  i>  A But ol' Men Who are Convicted of Insincerity  Out, oi Their Own Mouths.  The record ol llie debate in the  provincial legislature upon the address in  reply  to the speech  from  the throne, furnishes  abundant evidence of  the  circumstance  that the men who compose premier Turner's   government are  not  even  passably  honest.    They are never weary of prating  about the manner in which public, business  i.s carried on "at home," but if judged by  their own favorile slandard, there i.s  not  one oi" them whose record is clean enough  to remain '21 hours in public life.    Here is  one evidence.    When the Dunsmuirs were  trying   to   establish   a   claim  to all   the  precious   metals   in   their   railway  land  grant,   Charles   F.   Pooley,   president   of  premier Turner's executive, look the_ca.se  for the Dunsmuirs against the  province.  For years Charles F. Pooley has occupied  the dual position of being the Dunsuuiir's  lawyer, and of being president of tho ex-  ecuiivo'council of the government:.  Fvery  time the Dunsmuir interests clashed witli  those of llie province, Charles   111. Pooley  lias   gone   into   tho   courts'   and    fought  against   the   interests   of   the   province.  Premier Turner and all  the members oi"  his cabinet know   that   this  is   indecent,  but year after year they defend it.    They,  know that such a thing would not bo tolerated   in   Flightnd,   but   they   are    not  honest enough lo amend it.  Premier Turner's Very Lame Excuse.  Premier Turner in his speech, replied to  31. Senilin's plea for a redistribution bill  during the present session. His excuse  I'or not bringing down such a,bill was that  tlie population was continually changing,  and that a bill should not be introduced  until the last possible'moment. He said  that no one could tell bur, that the trend  of population might be north of the Canadian Pacific railway line within tiie next  year. There is not a man who reads this  who will not see that in this matter  premier Turner is dishonest. He does not  think that, as compared with the southern  portion of the province, the trend of population will be to the north within the  next year. His government i.s so incompetent that ho i.s afraid of the verdict of  the people. This fear prompts him to say  what no sane man would say, and expect  to be believed ��� that the trend of popula-  ,' tion within the year might be north of  the Canadian Pacific. Premier Turner  was not: honest in this matter, but he was  just as honest as when he soul his famous  to N'elson to deceive the poopleinto thinking that there was a duty of five cents a  ton'.upon the coal mined upon Vancouver  Island. Among men, when one is detected in practicing deceit, he is cut by those  who find him out. With shell-game men  and politicians' in .Hritish Columbia,"t'..e  same nian i.s counted smart.  Pooley Makes a Celebrated Speech.  Hon. ,C. E. Pooley. made'.a remarkable  speech. The noteworthy thing about it  was that he /attempted to defend the  niortgage tax, He said that it was a personal property tax, and nothing., more.  That it* was a'question between the borrower and lender as , to who should pay  the tax. if Mr. Pooley did not kuow that  his -remarks were calculated to mislead  the members of the legislature, he has a  .slower brain than even the Oppositionists  give him credit for. He, should have remembered that last session his leader admitted that the tax was unjust, that the  government could not compel the lender  to pay the tax, and that the only reason  why the law was not amended in this respect, was that the government needed  the money raised through this tax upon  the poverty of those obliged to mortgage.  If the mortgaged indebtedness upon real  or personal property were exempt, the  mortgage tax would not be so obnoxious.  Mr. Pooley tried to mislead the house into  believing that'it was equitable that the  government should tax mortgaged property to its full value, and tlie mortgage  as well, lie then announced that the  government would amend tlie law to re-  neve working miners anil laborers in the  precious metal mines from the payment  of the miner's yearly license. The government in the past has defended this  tax. For. years it has refused to knock it  off. The government does so now because it fears to longer face the storm  which its unjust taxation has raised.  Martin's Cock and Bull Story.  Hon. Air. Martin, in whose domain as-  chief 'commissioner of land and works, I).  C. Corbin has so successfully poached during the past twelve months, made a  speech. In view of the statements whicli  have been openly made in the press of the  province, one would think that the head  of this department would make some attempt to defend himself. For over twelve  months I). C. Corbin of tlie Nelson <fc  Fort Sheppard railway, has been playing  ducks and drakes with the lands aud timber of the province, and when the head of  this department has a chance to defend  himself, he says not a word. This must  be taken as additional evidence of the  fact that the Hon. ,Mr. Mai tin is a most  incapable minister. Tho head of the most  maligned department of the government  contented himself in the main by replying  to the charge, of Mr. Maepherson, that: his  department had sold to a canning company an island in the Fraser river for $20  for a cannery site, when cannery sites at  Stoveston were held at $2500. Ills defence  was that the island might bo carried  away by the Fraser river within a year,  which speaks volumes for the sagacity of  the cannery company which purchased it  for the erection thereon oi. a, cannery.  Along these lines Martin's defence of Corbin'.* lieu lands grab and timber royalty  cineh would be wonderfully refreshing.  R   P. Rlthet's Confession.  !.. P.   Piithot made a speech,    lie took  up provincial politics merely to engineer  the British Pacific  railway scheme.    He  is a govoriimenl.siipporlermerelybecau.se  he cannot get aid for his project from any  other quarter.    His remarks were noteworthy iu as much as he confessed that  until the government declared its railway  policy, neither he nor any other holder of  a charter could secure nec.essary capital  in the money centers.    This means that  practically no progress has yet been made  in the matter of financing tho great railway humbug.   Aside from liithet's desire  to commit  the  government to a  broad  railway policy, there is little sympathy  between   himself  and   the   members   of  the''cabinet.    In  the house  he  is called  uijon to act the part of referee.    When,  during  the course of a   debate, premier  Turner or some other member of his cabinet has been particularly foolish or dense,  the mil Iter under discussion is referred to  Hithet   as   a   business   man.    lie   rarely  agrees with the cabinet ministers in such  cases.    Were it not for the circumstance  that his chief object i.s to saddle the province with the co��t of building an expensive railway, IJ. P. Kithet's lead would be  a good one to follow.   ,But  if.Ilithet did  not have theBritish Pacific, axe to grind,  he would be too busy a niMii to mix himself up in politics.  ���   Mr. Kellie Makes a Good Talk.  Roth the members i'or West  Kootenay  took part in the debate.    The member for  the north  riding,  following  his custom,  launched out and spoke of many abuses.  Kellie i.s <a good talker, but the trouble  with him is that he considers his duty accomplished when he calls atlention to  to the abuses that exist. He gave chief  justice Davie a turn-over i'or his remarkable Paris Belle" decision. Like every  mining" man in the country. Kellie says  thatJ.)avie's interpretation of "mineral in  place'" is incorrect, and he asked the government to put an interpretation upon  the phrase, so that the legal minds ot tho.  province would understand it as men of  common sense do now. Mr. Kellie formally called (he attention of the attorney-  general to tlie fact that D. C. Corbin has  been, and continues to rob, the mineral  claims within the railway grant of the  timber thereon. The result of this will  be that when the mine owners wish louse  the timber for mining purposes they will  not be able to get it. Mr. Kellie spoke  also of the necessity of giving West Kootenay additional representation in the  house, and of appointing a capable man?  to fill the office at piesent occupied by  government agent Fit/.stubbs. It is not  likely that the government will pay the  slightest attention to the matters referred  to by Mr. Kellie, and despite this fact the  member for the north riding willcontinue  to give the Turner government a blind  support.

Kellie. the government this week  brought down a return showing the mineral output of the province for the past  two years. The value of the precious  metals is set down at something over  $5,000,000, which, with the product of the  collieries-of'Vancouver Island, bring the  total up to $7,1-10,000. The precious metal,  output was from the following districts:  ���'������-���' IK!).-..  Cariboo ���   Cussiiir   Kootenai- Kiist      Ullooel  v.    ��� ������ ���i.   Yule .........  ������ .'....

If premier  Turner's remarkable telegram to Nelson  had been true, the province would have  received $-12,31 1.75 upon the product of  these collieries, but as the telegram was  was not in accordance with fact, the province did not receive one cent.  The Rambler's Compressor Plant.  A.. L. McClaine, secretary of the Rambler <fc Cariboo Consolidated com pan j% has  returned to Kaslo, bringing with him the  estimates I'or the compressor plant which  the company proposes to install at the  mine. There will be a 50-horso power  tubular boiler, and a l-drill compressor  plant. The weight of ihe entire plant  will probably exceed 18,000 pounds. There  is a wagon road most of the way, and  transportation will be comparatively  cheap during the winter. The work at  the mine will be vigorously prosecuted.  A winze will be sunk on tiie ore chute,  which is three .and a half feet wide for  about fifty feet.  Railway Men Organize a Mining Company.  Porter Brothers, the well known railway contractors, Peter Larson and II. F.  Porter of this city have organi/.ed the  Granite Consolidated Mining Company  with a capital stock divided into 700,000  shares of the par value of $1 each, to take  over the Granite, CJrey Faglo and Little  Diamond mineral claims, situated close to  Paddy's Peak, owned by .James Dee, Joe  Cay/.a/.i, and IL 10. Porter. Two hundred  thousand shares will be placed in the  treasury and offered to the public at 10  cents per share.  RETURNED   PROM   THE   YUKON.  Duncan  Gillis, Formerly of Nelson, Arrives In  Victoria Prom Circl'e City.  Duncan   Gillis, formerly of Nelson, has  returned   to  Victoria   from   the   Yukon.  Gillis, in company with three companions,  made the trip from Circle City to Dyea, a  distance of about 1000 miles, on  foot with  the thermometer standing at -10 degrees  below zero.    He tells of the new discovery  on  the Klondike  river, a  branch  of  the  Yukon, some distance below 'Forty-mile,  ���in Canadian territory.    It is .regaided as  the greatest  find  yet made   in   Alaska.  'There   are about   1100 people,  including  natives, wintering iii the Birch Creek district, and   about 500 on   Forty-mile  and  Klondike.    Times are fairly good on  the  Yukon generally, although Circle City is  greatly   overdone.     The   most    pressing  needs of the country on the American side  is civil law of some sort.    Mob law now  prevails, and   the rankest injustices are  perpetrated..  A miners' meeting in Circle  City  is  a  farce, so  disreputable, and  so  disgusting that respectable citizens have  long ago ceased  to attend.    Tho  better  element wants civil law. and wants it bad.  On the Canadian side they have a government agent, backed by the mounted police,  and everything runs along smoothly and  satisfactorily.  Tho most interesting news is about the  wonderfully rich new diggings at Klondike. The camp was discovered in August  by Stick George, who panned $75 out of a  few sacks of dirt gathered on high river  rock. Prospectors flocked in every where.  On the surface colors were found, and  about 300 claims were located on Bonanza.  Creek. Gold in large paying quantities  wasi.struck wherever a hole was sunk.  Owing to the difficulties of hauling winter  supplies and building cabins, most of the  miners only had time to' prospect their  claims, but the results were most satisfactory. The pay-streak in one claim,  owned by M. IL Rhodes, is .thirty feet  wide and live feet deep, the gravel ranging from 10 cents on top to $40 to the pan  on bedrock, $03 being the most taken out  iu one par.  Fldorado, a. tributary of Bonanza, is  equally as rich, as much as $87 to the pan  having been taken out. Gold bottom and  Hunker also give promis-oof great returns.  Several hundred dollars were taken outof  the creek bottoms before winter set in.  It is-by far the greatest discovery ever  made iu Alaska, if not on the American  continent. Most of the claim owners are  new comers.  Dawson City, located at the mouth of  the Klondike, ten miles irom the diggings,  is the scene of great activity. Only-..three,'  months old, real estate is way up. Joe  Sadue, owner of the townsite, sawmill,  trading post and a number of claims, is  the busiest man on the Yukon.  Gillis had aninterview this week with  .L Fred Hume, M. P. P., John Houston,  and Charles Hillyer, and so favorably impressed were they with the future possibilities of the country, that they have decided to organize a steamboat company  and place a small boat upon the Yukon as  a general carrier.  TO  REG-ULATE   MINING-   COMPANIES.  INCORPORATION   PROCEEDINGS.  The   Provincial   Legislature   Has   Some Very  Good Provisions Before it.  The provincial government by proposed  amendments to the companies act is this  session seeking to safeguard the interests of the investors. It is a difficult subject to dispose of in such a manner that  investors may have reasonable safeguards  and that the mining industry be not unnecessarily hampered. Among the amendments proposed, was the following: "No  company formed under this act shall commence business unless ten per, cent of its  capital stock shall be paid up in cash, exclusive of any amount'payable otherwise  than in cash, and there has been filed  with the registrar a statutory declaration  by the secretary or one of the directors  that the above condition has been complied with.'' This amendment has not  been very favorably received, as it is tip-  parent that were it to become law, the  promoters of mining companies would require a considerable capital, ranging from  $100,000 down, before they couki commence work. For this reason it is quite,  likely that its requirements will be very  much softened if indeed it is not altogether withdrawn.  The best amendment iu'the bill is that  which requires that every foreign coin-  shall have a registered ollice in British  Columbia, and shall register the name of  its agent or manager. That all companies  will be compelled to prepare and publish  a balance sheet once a year, showing receipts and expenditures for the year previous. These balance sheets are to be  very complete in detail. There should be  no objection to an amendment of this  character. It i.s one of the best safeguards  which can be thrown around investors.  Another very good amendment is that  which brings all foreign companies practically within the scope of the provincial  acts. It provides that: "No act, matter,  or disposition or thing made, done or executed by a foreign company, although  valid by the laws of said foreign country  or state under which it is incorporated,  or permissable under its original corporate powers, shall be oi any force or effect  unless such act, mailer, disposition entiling be within the rights, powers and  privileges, and according to the manner  exercisable by companies under this act."  These are the main features of the bill,  and they are commendable.  The People of Nelson will Ask the Government to Grant a Liberal Franchise.  The public meeting held Wednesday  evening to discuss the franchise and other  matters in connection with the contemplated incorporation of the town of Nelson, was one of (he'most representative  meetings ever held in, Nelson, and for a  largo meeting, was wonderfully unanimous. R. 10. Lemon was elected chairman,  and 10. C. Pace secretary. Tho report of  J". A. Gibson was read, giving an account  of the disbursements of the committee,  and the progress made in the matter of  incorporation. This was adopted, and  Messrs. A. C. Buchanan, IL 10. Lemon,  James Lawrence, John lOlliot, and John A.  Turner were added to the incorporation  committee.  The burden of the discussion fell to the  lot of W. A. McDonald. John A. Turner,  Dr. 1.0. C. Arthur, Harold Selous. II. 10.  Croasdaile and Frank Fletcher. The first  matter to be taken up was the area which  should be included within the corporate  limits, and after a short discussion, it was  decided to re quest for the incorporation of  the irovernment townsite and tlie whole of  Addition A. The question as lo the extent  of.the franchise was not settled so quickly,  as more or less confusion existed as to  what power was vested in the franchise  in municipal matters.  W. A. iVIaedouald moved that for the  first election following incorporation, the  franchise should be exercised by owners  ofrealestateandtho.se who paid an annual rental of $00, provided they were  British subjects by birth or naturalization, tind had resided iu the town for  three months prior to the date of election.  He said he knew that such a franchise  was a very liberal one, but he was of the  opinion that it would be unwise for the  older residents to so restrict the franchise  that the many who had but recently  taken up their residence in the town  would be deprived of the privilege of having a voice in the selection of the first  municipal council.  Frank Fletcher moved an amendment  to the motion of Mr. Macdonald, requiring  a twelve months residence and an annual  rental of $120 iu the case of tenants. This  amendment was more nearly in conformity with the Municipal Flections A.cc with  respect to the necessary period of residence, but required just double the rental  required of a householder by the same  ���avt..- - _  Harold Selous supported the amend ment  in a series of speeches, the greater number of which were replied to by W. A.  Macdonald. A compromise was finally  reached by Macdonald amending his  motion so that a householder was required  to pay $120 per annum to be entitled to  vote, and the supporters of Fletcher's,  amendment in turn accepted the three  months residence. In this shape the'mo-.,  tion was carried unanimously.  II. 10. Croasdaile then made" a motion  to.the effect that a three-fifths vote of  property owners be necessary to .secure  the passage of money by-laws.  This was not acceptable to the meeting  and the mover offered to ameud it, to require a three-fifths vote' of the resident  property owners. On the suggestion of  W. A.-Macdonald, the motion was made  to read so that such by-law would be  subject to the provisions of the Municipal  Clauses Act, 1800. This was carried unanimously.  Section 70 of this act sets out: "In city  " municipalities no by-law to which the  "assent of the electors is necessary, be-  " fore the final passing thereof, shall be  "' valid or of any effect unless the vote'  "polled in favor thereof be at least a  " three-fifths majority of' the votes  " polled."  Dr. Arthur then moved a resolution  requesting the provincial government not  to grant any further concessions to any  existing nor contemplated water companies in view of.the probable immediate  incorporation of the city. Tiie resolution  aimed particularly atv'those who are attempting to secure the water of Anderson  creek for the purpose of supplying the  town with water. The resolution was  seconded by John A. Turner, and was  carried unanimously.  The meeting broke up with three cheers  for the new city of Nelson that .is to be.  SOME   BOGUS   DELEGATES.  NIII..-MX, Koli.

It   will   Not   Be   Ready   For   the   House   Till  Monday  Afternoon,  Vktokia, B. C, Feb. Hl.-|Special]~ The  bill  incorporating  tie, towns of Nelson,  Hossland,   and   Grand    Forks    was   not  brought in today, o.ving to protests from  St. Barbe and others at N'elson, and  telegrams from Rossland.    Opposition to the  Nelson bill also comes from F. S. Barnard,  of the  Consumer's    Water   Works' company,   who  wants   the   incorporation  of  Nelson delayed until his water company  is guaranteed immunity from competition  from  city   water   works.     The  bill   will  probably  be  brought down on Monday.  Although   printed  copies cannot be  obtained until introduced in house, the main  provisions of the bill are said to be:   The  city to work under the Municipal Clauses  Act after January 1st next.    All  British  subjects   who  have  resided   within   the  boundaries of proposed city, will be given  the right to   vole at the  first   election.  The qualification for mayor requires that  the candidate be the registered owner of  one thousand dollars real estate, or ��� two  thousand   leasehold:   for   aldermen,   five  hundred real estate, or one thousand leasehold.   The bill will give the corporation  of N'elson power to issue debentures up  to $50,000 for public works, and  the.corporation  will   be allowed 75 per cent of  taxes i'or   1S')7.    The   boundaries of the  city as at present defined, tire the lines of  Lot 05, Group I.    Kootenay county  will  doubtless be made a laud registry district,  with registry oflicc at Nelson.    Hossland  will likely get a supreme court registrar.  Constable .Miles has been dismissed and  llobert Wiuerals appointed in his stead.  Government agent Fitzstubbs went direct  to San Francisco, so did deputy registrar  Gii'fin.  The bill to correct the most remarkable  'Clerical error" on. recorn, which appeals  in the British Columbia Southern railway  land grant act, passed its second reading  this afternoon. The land grant by the  amending bill, only goes to sections A and  B of the proposed railroad. Colonel  Baker, in the discussion upon the bill,  admitted that the railway charter had  been sold to a. syndicate.-There'.is a  strong opposition iu the legislature this  session to all blanket water right bills.  .Judge.Forin. was. hauled over the coals  for asking for and getting $800 extra  compensation   for  acting as   stipendiary  magistrate.

THEY  SHIRK  THEIR  TAXES.  The Dunsmulr Iniluence is Strong- Enough to  . Evade tho Payment of Taxes.  The provincial government has declared  its intention of amending the Mineral  Act so that the men employed in aud  around the precious metal mines for wages,  shall not be obliged to pay the present  tax' of five dollars per annum for the  privilege of working. Tiik Tiiimwi-. has  contended for years that this tax was an  unjust trade tax, and the government iu  repealing it, so far as it applies lo mere  miners and laborers working in the mines  for wages, is only giving the people of the  miningdistricts tardy "justice. There is yet  another inequality in the matter of mining taxation which the government.if it  were honest, would seek to remedy. The  burden of taxation is borne by the precious metal mines, while the coal barons  of Vancouver Island so control legislation  as to practically evade all taxation whatever. The one mining district of West  Kootenay paj'S about five times the  combined taxes of the three coal mining  districts of Comox, North Nanaimo and  South Nanaimo on Vancouver island.  The reason for this is that the Dunsmuir  interests are affected by tlie rate of taxation in these three districts. The Duns-  niuirs hired men and relatives sit in the  legislature, and that proportion of their  tax which they evade is forced upon the  mining interests of West Kootenay.  The public accounts for the liscal year  ending June .'.0th. 1S00, show that during. .  that period the district of West Kootenay  contributed $08,707.51 under the following  heads, which affect mining property directly or indirectly:  WliST  ICOOTKXAV -���  Miner's licenses  .Sni.721 (��  Mining receipts, general     .'.l.:_l.*i I!

The increase from  the combined districts of Comox,.North  Nanaimo, aud South Nanaimo was $1,-  .721.0(5. These three districts are the great  coal mining districts of Vancouver Island,  in which, according to the last report of  the ��� minister of mines, there were 278-1  men employed. The same report stated  that during that year the output of the  mines was !).'.0.(551 tons of coal. These  collieries, as part of their equipment,  have nearly-.SO miles of railway with 15  locomotives, and over 000 cars, together  with very valuable plants. ! As the three  districts show an aggregate gain of less  than $2000 over the previous year, the  amounts which these collieries will contribute to the public treasury in taxes  will be about the same as in 180195. In  this year the assessment roles showed  that the collieries contributed the following amounts:  X._w Vanioi. vi:u C'o.w.

Their taxes  under this head' will exceed $5000 per  annum, or within $1000 of the combined  taxes of all the coal mines on Vancouver  Island. Is it not time that the people of  British Columbia resented this Dunsmuir  influence, and turned its servants out of  the legislature? They stand in the way  'of equal representation so that they can  maintain a system grossly incqual  taxation.  ORE   SHIPMENTS   FOR   THE   WEEK.

Tin-: provincial governnieivt has adopted
a commendable course in deciding to lake
up the matter of the incorporation of the
city of jSTelson.    The  existing  conditions
are such that without government assistance iu this matter, the people ol Nelson
would be deprived of the right of self-
government in local a flairs, aud the present 'unsatisfactory   condition   of  things
would be continued for several years.    Of
the area which it is proposed to incorporate, (he greater part is vested in the name
of the Canadian Pacific Railway company
and  the owners of the   Innes   addition.
Hundreds of purchases have been   made
from these large owners, and substantial
improvements   placed   upon   (he lots so
purchased, but iu nearly every case the
property was purchased on time, and the
linal payments not being due, the title to
tlie property is still  vested in  the names
of the vendors.    Although practically llie
owners  of realty,  these  residents  could
not.sign the required petition for incorporation, and without them ii. is doubtful
if sufficient property qualifications could
bo got upon a petition to offset the valtus
represented     by    non-resident    owners.
..Municipal autonomy is .just as necessary
to the city of Nelson as is provincial autonomy to the province of British Columbia.    There   is   an  absolute  necessity  in
Nelson   for  a sewerage system, a water
system,  street improvements and  other
public works, and there i.s no manner in
which   these  works   can   be carried out
satisfactorily other  than by means of incorporation.. liy granting the people of
Nelson     self-government,     a     necessary
measure will   be conceded  and   much  of
the cause of friction between  the people
of Nelson and the provincial government
will be removed.
Tiik  legislature on   Wednesday afternoon, opposed the resolution of Adams of
Cariboo, which  requested   the   Dominion
government to place an export duty on
Hritish Columbia ores, and the mover was
prevailed upon to wit:*draw the same.   It
was an unfortunate thing'that the member.--of the legislature could   not see this
'matter in a different light.    The general
idea appeared to be that' the mineral development of the country was not sufficiently   advanced   for   such   a   measure.
Colonel Baker, as  minister of mines, opposed   the  resolution  on  these grounds,
and the free ttadcrs opposed it on general
'principle.'.    The   late   of   the   resolution
will be pleasant reading to  the'managements of American  railroads aud American .smelters, for the reason that to a certain extent, the ligisluturo  is representative   of   the   province.    The    legislature
having   practically   declared, against an
export duty, there is not much  hope that
tiie federal government, opposed as it is
to taxes of the kind, can lie prevailed to
go behind its expression of opinion.  Since
it took the  upper country  press several
years to convince the government that its
miner's tax upon.'men working for wages,
was unjust, it  could  hardly be expected
that the same  men would readily accept
the proposition of tin export duty upon
ore. '_
Tin-; sennit; of the Tinted States, by a
vote of-il lo*!l, has passed the new immigration bill with (lie Corliss amendment,
which was inserted for i he purpose of
striking  at a   few   Canadians   who   have
American   towns
been employed in
along the border, while living on the
Canadian side, if president Cleveland
has any respect for the good  name of the
Cnited States, he will veto the bill. It
would be a lasting disgrace upon a country
so great as the I'nited States, to pass so
narrow a measure. Such legislation is out
of joint with tlie civilization of the day.
That it should proceed from a republic
professing lo love liberty, is a circumstance which Canadians can hardly understand. The 'effect of it cannot be estimated by lumping together the few jobs
which Canadians will lose when it becomes
operative. 11 will mean that two coun-
, tries, which have been on very good terms
before,its passage, will come very near to
hating each other. The Corliss amendment reads:
.Section I. Th,u it-hall lierc.'ifler lie unlawful for any
iiiiilu alien who has not in jjooil faith made his declara-
lio'i before a proper court of hi- intention to become a
citizen of llie l.'nileit Slates lo be employed on any public
work-- of the Tinted .States, or lo come regularly or habitually into the United Slates by land or water for the
purpose of en^ii^iiiK in any mechanical Irade or manual
labor for wattes or .-alary, returning: from lime io time to
a foroiKn ctiuiil ry.
Section,). That, il'slnill be unlawful for any person,
partnership, company or eorporation kiio'.viiiKly to employ any alien coming into the failed Slates in violation
ol'lhe next pret-edii'K section of ihi* act : provided, that
the ])i-ovi.-.ion of Ihi.-ael, .-hall not apply lo the employment of .-ailor.-i. dock hand.-; or other employes of vessels
or railroad train hands, such a- eondueLors,>entfincor.s,
boakonioii, liremen or biiKK'iKcinuii whose duties require
them to pass over the I'ronlii;)- lo roach llie termini of
their run-:, or to boatmen or guides on the lakes and
river- on tho northern border of the United Slates.
When this becomes law it will be the
duty of the Canadian government to pass
just such a measure against citizens of the
I'nited States, and at the same time citizens of the republic should be deprived
of every privilege in Canada which is not
extended to Canadians in the Cnitcd
Slates.' The l.'nited States may pinch a
few Canadians along the eastern border,
but in the west the Canadians have much
the best end of the stick. Throughout
this province, heretofore,.citizens of the
I'nited States have been permitted every
privilege, except the franchise in provincial and federal elections, despite that republic's mean-spirited alien labor bill; but
there is a limit to indulgence. The
good old policy of an eye for an eye is
good enough for Canada. Jt" the United
States wishes to be nnneighborly, the Dominion will jog along without its good-
fellowship.    .

trales the value of persistent agitation.
Several years ago Tin-: TitiiU'XK was alone
in denouncing this tax as imposed upon
working  miners,   but one after another,
the other newspapers took the matter up.
until  this  session  the   government   was
forced   to   promise   that   the   trade   tax.
would   be   repealed.     The   next   reform
which the provincial government will be
forced to consider, will be tho equalization
of taxation with respect to precious metal
and coal mines.    As a subject for taxation
the coal mines oceupj' precisely the same
position which the  precio'us metal mines
occupied   last session, when the government imposed its tax of one per cent upon
their output. ' The crown had absolutely
alienated the precious metals in the mines
of   West   Kootenay  when  it'imposed  its
tax upon their output.    It'can now adopt
the same course with  respect to the coal
ininesof Vancouver Island---!I'its members
are not owned  by nor controlled  by the
UnnsMiuirs.    J t is an 'absurd position for
even the provincial government lo take,
that ;m individual Slocan  mine—the Slocan   Star—shall   be   calied   upon  to  pay
yearly taxes aggregating  the total taxes
paid by all  the collieries  on  Vancouver
Island.    These coal   mines  employ  some
27SI  hands, including Chinese anil Japanese.    Had   they   been   working   in   the
mines of Kootenay, they would have contributed $1.'V.)'20 to the provincial treasury
in   miner's  licenses,   but   on   Vancouver
Island they did not pay one cent.   These
collieries last year turned out SKi.2'-.". tons
of coal, valued at $2.0*27,1-1.'..    If the government collected a tax of one per cent
upon it, these collieries would have contributed $23,271 to the treasury, but they
did not contribute  one cent .under this
head.    I f the telegram of premier Turner,
that there was a tax of ■". cents a ton on
coal  mined, was  honest,  these  collieries
would have paid $-12,*Jl 1.73: but it was not
true,    if the coal  mines were treated  in
the same way as the precious metal mines,
they  would  have contributed 837,1..M   in
taxes upon last years working.    As it i.s,
they contributed only $(.000.

Some years ago, C.eorge Washington  Thompson, a most carefully reared and  altogether exemplary young man, came  to California from an eastern state. He  came Cor the purpose of making his fortune. Previous to his coming to (Juliforum, and. in fact, for .sometime thereafter,  (ieorge Washington Thompson had never  heard of the J tassayampa ri vet'. In choosing the mining company promotion business as an occupation, Air. Thompson was actuated more, perhaps, by the  thought that he could thus achieve sooner  the goal of his ambition, than by the  loftier thought of the good lie might do  the mining interests of the great and  growing west. But lie was young aud  lired by all those various desires which  crowds the minds of the young.  II is first von! ui e in the mining com pan y  pi'omotion business was also his last one.

Chance threw Ceorge Washington  VTIiompaon into (he company ol'an elderly  cattleman    from   the   Aravaip.i   country  Angole-..    They  iit   i,ho smoker.  soon   after   he  occupied   the  1 left  Los  same scat  for the young man because he .smoked the  cigars ,\\ Inch the train-boy had for sale.  .(George bought six of these alleged cigars,  for which be paid a half-dollar, aud.gave  one to the cattleman. The cattleman  lighted it, heroically stayed by it for  ��� three puffs and one profuse expectoration  and then tossed it out of the window.  ''.'However did ye git imbued with the  notion that this yere pertie'ler slice of  coyote pasture needed disinfection "J" he  asked. ���'  George looked at the massive shoulders  and square turned jaw of the cattleman,  and decided that if any insult was intended, by this remark it was not intended for  him bub for the train-boy. So he overlooked it very kindly and told the cattleman all about himself and his 'mining  company promotion venture. The cattleman had taken a pipe, and some tobacco  from his -.pocket, and the smoke seemed to  soothe him, so that he was able.to curb a  strong desire to throw George out of the  window.  "Assuuiin" that I git ye correct interpreted," he finally observed, "you'll eventually round up, ] opinion, somewhere  up'n th' llassayampa country, eh? That  the idea? You'll observe the lay-out con-  cern'm' some likely prospects i'er mineral,  with the intention of dickerin' of 'em to a.  (lock, o'tenderfeet, up in the city, ef I'm  follerin' yer conversational .trail 'any ways  close. Do I seem to git my brand on your  plan all proper?" ,  . "1 think so���yes, I am almost sure you  'do," replied"George 'Washington  Thompson, wishing  that  he  had  at least some  sort of an idea of what his companion was  talking about.  "Roped yer notion the first throw, did  ] ? Ever infested them parts to any  alarmin' extent afore?"  **I don't think i understand," said  George.    ''Possibly you mean "  "()b, you lose my trail, eh? "Well, don't  let me stampede ye none, but, without  intendin' no insult an' feelin' all friendly-  like, seein'as how you've recent struck  this here range, providin' you allows me,  I'll perceed to' speak short and pointed-  like, concernin' of the water���Gallopin'  Gehosiphat!- -here's where I (rut out from  th' herd. No tellin' when I'll run onto  yer trail agin, young man."  He gathered his efleets and left the car,  while George Washington Thompson sat  gazing out of the window at the miserable adobe houses of the Arizona town.  Who will say it was not the hand of  fate that brought the words of the old  cattleman to so abrupt an end, just as the  note of warning was upon his lips ? Surely  when all of the sad tale is told, there will  be none to say that any man's hand had  aught to do with   the  undoing of (Icorge  Washington  fate alone.  Next day  and entered  tion with as  Thompson.    'Twns fate, and  he reached his destination  upon his work of investiga-  much earnestness as another  man would who knew what he svasabout.  There may have been an evil glitter in  the mine-owner's eye as he led George  down to the river to show liirn the mill  site. It was a hot day���an Arizona hot  day.    The water was clear and  cool and  extremely inviting, and, though (ieorge  had, been repeatedly warned that lie could  never hope to do business in Arizona if he  was once seen drinking water, the stream  seemed to tempt him as it bubbled and  gurgled along. Watching until his companion's back was turned to him, he fell  upon his knees at the water's edge and  drank his fill.  Ju Phoenix, where he stopped for a few  days on his way, back to tho city, George  was regarded as a very important personage. This may have been due to several cau-es.  "Yc*," t-aid he. speaking generally to a  group of natives in the hotel office, "we  shall expend something like half a million  on the properly at once, in order to see  what it is likely to be worth. If it shows  up at all as we expect, there will be no  slop in the work, and after we get a railway in, then we will soon have the water  works and the mill going. A million will  cover the whole preliminary work, I  think."  Those few statements-, in connection  with the fact which George, in an unguarded moment, allowed to leak out, that  Cecil Khodes was one of the backers of  the enterprise, ami that the i.othschilds  would aLo have an interest in the venture, seemed to heighten the respect for  George'until it amounted to reverence  almost.  Seeing how matters stood. George then  rather reluctantly admitted that he had  given up the management of one of the  South African mines iu order to give his  personal attention to this new work.  The report prepared by George for his  backers proved a surprise even for the  most sanguine among them.  One day. some weeks aftei  turn, there was a meeting in a private of  lice of a bank, ft was a private meeting,  and even George himself was not asked to  be present. A rpport was to be considered.    It was not George's report.  "Gentlemen,'' began a pompous old  financier, as he arose, holding in one hand  a formidable-looking document, while he  gently stroked his luxuriant whiskers  wiln the other, "1 have here the report of  the expert sent by the Bonanza Mining  and Alilling Company to confirm there-  port of (icorge Washington Thompson.
