 DAIiiY  EDITION^ BY  MAIL:  FIVE   DOLLARS A YEAR  nnz  WEEKLY EDITION  BY MAIL  TWO  DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR,  KELSON:  WEDNESDAY OPENING, APRIL IL  1900.  ~<���  PRICE FIVE CENTJS.  y  M'lNNES' REPORT RECEIVED  Main Point Evaded.  , ^ Ottawa, April 10:���|Special to  The Tribune.]���The report of lieutenant-governor Mclnnes to the  Dominion government in regard to  tho dismissal ol" tho Semlin government has been received,und explains  tho course he pursued and his  reasons Cor hi*, so doing. The report is such an one as was to be expected undeV the circumstances,  and probably very little exception  could be taken to it in that regard.  But, if tho information of your correspondent is correct, he does not  deal at all with what is now going  on and to which vciy proper exception must be taken soon.  Kor instance, the governor has no  defence lo make for entrusting the  government of tlio province to ministers, all of whom, except the premier, are selected from outside the  legislature and tire wholly Avithout  any parliamentary experience. It  was probably best that this phase  of the question should have been  passed over by the lieutenant-governor because it will not admit of  being defended.  There are two things which are  now open to the lieutenant-governor to do, and that is either to dissolve the legislature at once or call  it together. lie ought to do one ol  these without delay. If not an  occasion would certainly arise  when the people Avould naturally  look lo Ottawa for relief.  Sn tho house today Bostock asked  Laurier if the report of the lieutenant-governor of British Columbia  . in regard to the dismissal of the  Semlin government had been received. Lautier said that the report was received last Saturday.  Prior brought up "the question  of the commissions the Imporial  government is granting to the Canadians in the army. Laurier said  that no notice had been given of  the question", and that' tho papers  would be brought down in due  time. ,  Tupper became very violent, stating that the matter was urgent an,d  that commissions should be granted  the Canadians, not through the  minister, but directly through the  commander of the lloyal Military  College and the commander of her  majesty'>s forces. Laurier said that  if Prior had given notice of his  question as lie should have donej  the government,would have been  ready with its reply, but the leave  of his excellency would have Iirst  to be obtained.  Hay reported that, after a careful  search, he failed to/find in the files  of the consulate the slightest evidence to support the statement.  The consul further reports that  there is absolutely no interference  so far as he has been able to ascertain with any official communications, either telegraphic, or mail,  wliich pass between the department  of state and the consulate.  Would Reduce Klondike Royalty.  Vancouver, April 10.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���At a meeting of  the board of trade tonight a strong  resolution mis passed advocating a  large reduction in the Klondike  royalty. The plan proposed for  submission to the government to  make up tho deficiency iu revenue  consequent upon doing away with  the royalty, is designed to turn  trade into Canadian channels. Jt  suggested that all miners shall be.  compelled to sell their gold to the  government assay office at Dawson,  and charges as royalty, assaying  and insurance are not to exceed live  per cent all told. This is designed  to compel the payment of all costs  necessary iuto the Canadian government and banks on every ounce  of gold going out of the country.  Mackintosh dominated.  Robsr.ANO,  April   10.���The  Conservative convention for the Rossland riding met  today,  and, amid  great enthusiasm,  nominated C. H.  Mackintosh for the place of member of the provincial' parliament.  The nomination  was  by acclamation,   as   there   seemed  to   be  no  member of the Conservative party  who desired  to  rival him  for the  place.   ,The  convention  was  made  up of delegates from tho Boundary  towns and Rossland and  Trail.    A  well attended ratification  meeting  was held this evening.    The principal speaker was   Mr.  Mackintosh,  and he promised,  if elected, to do  all  that he could  to develop and  put on a better footing than at present the mining interests of British  Columbia.

This  Avas  fair notice  to  the  owners   and    occupiers    of   these  houses,   but   the   notice  AA'as   not  taken in the spirit in Avhich  it was  given.    In fact the OAvners and  occupiers, through their friends, gaA'e  it out   that   tho   city   authorities  could not moAre them.     The city  authorities believe they can, and  yesterday the first step was  taken  to shoAV that  the present council  do not back  aud  fill  on questions  that concern the interests  of the  people.     The predecessors   of the  preoent council made arrangements  to  locate   these   houses   on   Lake  street, Avest of Josephine  streot, a  locality that ib less conspicuous and  more secluded  than  their  present  location.

Nkw York, April 10.���The Journal and Advertiser tomorrow will  print the folloAving: "A contract  to buy 30,000 to 35,000 horses for  the Biitish government was about  completed in this city yesterday,  Tuesday. The horses are ,for the  cavalry regiments and the artillery  sendee in South Africa, and they  Avill cost several million dollars.

London, .April  12.���5 a.m.���But  that the Avar  office has  issued  no  neAvs from lord Roberts during the  last   three   days,   there  would be  little disposition to place  any  credence in the Boer>reports of a British disaster.    The unexpected rallying of the Free State commandoes,  however, leaves the public in a nervous   condition.    Dispatches   from  Pretoria, as stated last Monday, did  not mention any further Boer A'ic-  tories.    On the contrary they said  all the commandoes were quiet, and  as lord Roberts has hitherto never  failed    promptly   to   report    mischances, as Avell as successes,  or  to  allow the newspaper correspondents  to   report   them  until   some  confirmation is received, there is justification for regarding the Merkats-  fonteiu rumor as only an  exaggerated account of the  Reddersburg  affair, at  the  same  time,  the  cx-  tremest anxiety is being  felt.     No  further news has been received  of-  fightiug either at  Wepener   or in  Natal.  Boer leports seem to indicatec  that lord Methuen is adA'ancing  from Boshof toAvards Hoopstadt.  It is a bold and apparently a dangerous move, since, although it  turns the right flank of the Boer  position at Brandfort, it puts lord  Methuen's force between Avhatever  gariison thete may be at Bloem-  hoef in the Transvaal and the  Brandfort force.  The Boer commissioners at Naples  do uot conceal the fact that they  haA'e no hopes of obtaining peace  Avith independence for the republics, but they AA'ilLendeavor to save  their .���imour prop ro or to securu a  babis for further' negotiations.

Letter From Captain Hod/- .ns.  The columns of the neAvspapers  noAvadays teem Avith accoufats of  battles and glowing descriptions of  heroic deeds, but little is heard and  less understood of theineessant hard .  work wliich is the backbone ot a  campaign, and of the privations endured even by a victorious army.  Excerpts from a letter from captain Hodgins, dated Paardeberg,  February 28th, are printed below, ���  and give a A'ery good idea of the  inglorious side of Avarfare aud of  the terribly hard Avork our boys  had to do before Cronje AA'as at last  cornered in the laager at Paardeberg.

Thus during all those tiring  marches over the hot, .sandy veldt,  the soldiers appear to have had but  one square meal, and one good  night's re^t.

ONTARIO'S GREATEST MAN  His Great Accomplishment.  Tin,11110  World.  Tlio Miimo of F. H. Glcfffiic ia so  prominently nssnci.-iLoil with tho in-  ilnptiiiil development; tluit i-> Inking  place at Sault Stc. Mario that the  announcement of an nckltcss by him  before the board of trade was sufficient to arouse keen interest in  Toronto's commercial circles. But  Mr. Clergue showed :i quiet ability  to sink himself aud his interests in  tho great question of the national  development, or else to bring them  in only as an indication of what is  practicable because of established  success.  In the course of his address Mr.  Clergue caid :  I  came from the eastern section  of the country.    Jt fell to my fortune  to  be  associated  with  some  gentlemen  who  were possessed of  some means- -move than they could  find  profitable    investments  for ���  and it was agreed between us that  we should begin a prospecting tour  al.ongthe basin of the St. .Lawrence,  which, of course, extends from the  gulf to Lake Superior���in order to  ascertain what opportunities there  existed   along   this     frontier    for  hydraulic   development.      Jn    the  course   of that   journey,  starting  from  Cape  Breton  and ending at  Port    Arthur,   vaiious   important  water powers were found and investigated, and various of them had  their merits,and nearly all of them  had  tlieir demerits.    As  we went  along the shore of the Georgian Bay  1 wo found,  here  and there,  water  powers , on the Spanish and other  rivers, all of some consequence and  actual volume, but none of prime  importance uutil we reached Sault  Sto.  Marie, and there, as^ those of  you will remember who have seen  the situation, with L'ikc  Superior  for a mill pond and a fall of -about  20 feet there was a plain opportunity for economical aud advantageous  hydraulic development.  There we were interested enough  to stop and investigate.    Well, the  development of a water power on a  large scale involves the expenditure  of a great deal of money; aud after  the   water power is developed'and  the hydraulic energy of the falling  water is turned  through a wheel  and begins to revolve the shtift, it  is necessary that machinery should  be applied to that shaft in order to  turn it to some useful effect, and  then  tho hydraulic engineer gives  place to the manufacturing engineer.    AVe  had in  mind no  special  ���5ort-of undertaking-!!! the ^ay~of  manufacturing.'    \Yb  were   aware  that at  Jlolyoke,   for instance,  in  Massachusetts,   water   power -was  worth from ,SI.j to $30 per annum  per horse power, and the consti ue-  lion "of a dam at the river, at Hol-  yoke had resulted  in a population  'of  100,000    people  dependent   for  their daily bread   on Ihc energy  produced vfi'oin that falling water.  In  our simplicity at that time it  seemed to us that we had simply to  go on, construct the dam   establish  the water wheels in place and that  all the manufacturers in the world  would come there to seek for power.  Jt is my opinion, after a residence  of over five years in Algoma, and  the  expenditure   of already  more  than  live  million   of dollars,   and  having available more than fifteen  .million dollars more for investment  in the same undertaking, it is ray  opinion���and it must  be a  pretty  good one or it could not bo so well  backed up���that there is an opportunity for a population in Northern  Ontaiio equal to that of Southern  Ontario, equal in number, equal in  prosperity, and how it can be done  J shall proceed to elucidate to you.  You have only to go and follow the  example wc have set at Sault Ste.  Marie.    I  do uot  mean to say  ib  need bo on the same scale.    That is  not necessary.    Jn fact it would be  impracticable because there wehave  the advantage of a very large water  power, but in its proper proportion  similar industries can exist all the  way from the city of Ottawa to the  city of Port Arthur.    Ifa\ ing developed, as   I havc   said, the water  power, we then found it necessary  lo study the resources of the region  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. 0., and Dawson Oity, N. W. T.  for the purpose of utilizing that  water power. Naturally tho forests  first appeal to us.  \Vc  were bound to look to  the  watershed of Lake Superior to  secure our supplies, and in the study  of that region wo found that there  was the birch, the maple, the hard  elm, the tamarac, the spruce, the  balsam and the poplar ; all of these  timber growths, in their present  condition, uselcos and most of them  inaccessible. Except tho spruce  and cedar, none of the other woods  I have mentioned would float to our  mill for tho purpose of manufacture;  nor could they be utilized at our  works for lack of means of trans-  portal ion from the forests. Therefore, wc found that of all the woods  up there the only one suitable for  our purpose was the spruce.  Then wo began to gather for use  in pulp making, and we proceeded  to construct a pulp mill.    We began  it on rather a small scale at first.  V/e agreed with the government to  the extent of their promising us the  right- to cut a sufficient supply, if  we would undertake it for a fixed  period, at a certain stumpage late.  Well, we had not gone along far  before we found it cost just as much  to run a small plant���except mere  labor  charges   and  the  additional  cost for  the  raw  materials���as  a  works twice as large, and that our  competitors in foreign lauds, ruu-  ning  on  a   more  extensive   scale,  could   produce pulp for the use of  the  paper makers throughout the  woild at a prico beyond our competition.     So  the Iirst  step  of   the  evolution was to enlarge the pulp  mill from a ground wood pulp mill  of _20 tons a day until we had an  output of 150 tons of pulp a day, requiring the use daily of about 200  cords   of   wood.      Having   gotten  along  so far as  to  build the new  pulp mill, avc found that even then  the influx of this product of ours on  a large scale on to the markets of  the world was taken advantage of  by the paper mamufacturers, who  needed Canadian pulp, and they began  to mark  down the values  of  Canadian pulp.    When we originated the mills the.markct price in the  United States was high and profitable, and we had a handsome dividend  calculated  on the output of  the mill.    When the wheel's began  to turn' over'and the product began  to come out, the paper manufacturers in tho states resolved that'there  ���\\a& a new soursc  of supply on  a  grand scale and they could be supplied forever at their own price.  Up  to the ^time we constructed  this  mill the ordinary method for  producing pulp for the uso of paper  manufacturers  was   by   attaching  the  grindstone to  n water  wheel.  Then   against   the   grindstone   is  placed a block of spruce wood, and  that block of spruce wood is pressed  against the grindstone by an  hydraulic piston, and this continuous pressure against the grindstone  results in pulverizing this wood iuto  liquid  form.    That pulp in liquid  form goes off to another machine^  "where -it���is-"crusliccl-arouud   the  wooden roller, which expresses from  the pulp   about one-half   of  the  water, and the  consequence is you  obtain a sheet of pulp something  like a thick sheet of blotting paper,  containing about -15  to 50  p.e. of  wood fibre and 50 to 55 p.c. of water.  When the product is shipped to the  pauor mill the papermuker does not  pay for tho tons of pulp you shipped  to  him, but he pays you for  the  amount of   pulp 'fibre,   wliich-is  ahout 50 per cent of the shipment;  consequently   my_ friends   of the  Grand Trunk railway and tho Canadian Pacific railway arc gathering  from   my   pocket the   freight   on  Witter which  I never  got paid for.  That    circumstance   confined    our  works to tlio nearby paper manufacturers.  It was decided -wc must make  that pulp marketable all over the  world. Pulp for paper-making uses  is worth moro in countries where  they have no forests than in countries where they have, audit was  decided to attempt a process for  turning out this pulp as a dry  product. An investigation was  made among all the paper-machine  manufacturers in Kurope and the  United States with the hope of  securing apparatus by which this  ground wood pulp just as it came  from this grindstone could be taken  and turned into a sheet like a sheet  of paper. Everywhere the process  was declared impracticable, Xo  paper-machine manufacturer in the  world would attempt it. Having  had a long training in mechanics  myself, I gave the matter my own  attention, and after a  while suc-  Capital Authorized  Capital Paid up  Rest  S2.500.000  $2,391,863  $1,554,710  0,11.

LAY, MnmiKOi*.  which seemed practical, and this design was sent around to the paper-  niachiuo makers. But no paper-machine man would build that machine, and it became necessary to  build our machine shop. It involved a large drying cylinder and  of a different form than had ever  been attempted.  Having decided to build the machine shop Ave found it was necessary to build a foundry. AVe built  a foundry of stone of general architecture .and design adopted in our  mills, then Ave went on to'build the  machine shop. Before Ave were  ready to turn out a single machine  wc had spent about one hundred  and tAveuty-live thousand dollars,  all for the object of obtaining dry  pulp, and then after all our trouble  Ave got out one of those machines.  After a while, correcting this and  remedying that, we evolved out of  that conception a machine which  today earns net at the mill a profit  of one thousand dollars a day more  in that one mill than the profit Avas  by the same output by the process  formerly iu use.  That is the only mill in the world  making pulp in that form, and  since I haA'e been in Toronto���I  only arrived this morning���I haA'e  received, and I have uoav AA'ith me,  telegrams from Paris, from England, aud telegrams from tho United  States for orders at our oavii price,  which would more than take the  product of that mill for six mouths  if Ave Avould accept them. Having  produced this dry machine and dry  pulp, and having gotten the product into a form where Ave could  now reach the foreign markets, Ave  ship eA'ery Aveek pulp to Japan,  Australia, France, to England, besides all over the United States, and  no important contract is made today without first inquiiiug from  Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Avhat the  price will be.  While investigating the question  of the manufacture of chemical  pulp we found Ave required to haA'e  sulphur, and avo found, that the  only economic source of- sulphur,  and the source for sulphite pulp  mills,   was' the   sulphur mines  of  E. J. Robie  FASHIONABLE  TAILOR  Workmarjs|iip and  quality of goods tfye  best obtainable  Opposite Silver King Hotel, Baker street, Nelson  Sicily, OAvned by a syndicate imposing its' own A'alue cm its output, so  that the cost for sulphur for a  sulphite paper mill in Canada is  practically $25 a ton. and at the  time of the Cuban AA'ar tho prico  Avent up at one time as high as $40  a ton. So 1 began to look around  for some sulphur. I Avent up to the  Avorks at Sudbury, and found they  were racing sulphurous acid gas off  into the air at a value of $2000 a  day, at an expense and loss.  I proposed that they take tho ore  to Sault Ste. Marie, where avc could  utilize   the  sulphurous  acid.    The  company said they had investigated  it and had found  it impracticable.  So 1 went to  Sudbury,  and  after  looking around  there    found any  quantity    of   mines,      AVe   found  nickel ore enough there to last the  world ono hundred thousand years.  I  took an option on  one property  for  a sufficient length of  time to  allow us to carry on  those experiments  and  determine  whether or  not that sulphur could bo used for  a sulphite pulp mill, and Ave were  just as successful,  after some  experiments, as Avith the pulp machine.  Then Ave Avent down to Sudbury,  and paid them $100,000 for a nickel  mine, and we proceeded to carry on  our reduction until avo found that  the gas which   we  got from  this  Sudbury ore Avas exactly Avhat AA'e  wanted for a sulphite pulp   mill.  Then Ave proceeded to establish our  sulphite mill.    It is now under construction and will be  in operation  about June  1.    It  will utilize   as  much  wood  as  the   ground  AA'ood  mill.    It Avill employ as many men,  and  Avill  make  our total  requirements of AA'ood about 200 cords per  day this summer.    Then the question  came np whether the residue  Avhich Avas to be left from the ore  could not be put to^some use.   We  found  Ave had left'in  this residue  A FULL LINE OF  Front Doors  Inside Doors  Screen Doors  Windows  Inside Finish  local and coast.

And Ave then proceeded, gentlemen, to erect our reduction AA'orks  and our ferro-nickel plant. But,  when avo began to ship this ore out  of Sudbury, avo found that although a very considerable proportion of it consisted of nickeliferous  pyi-otite principally, a still larger  proportion consisted of copper  pyrites. It became necessary, in  oider to mine this ore profitably,  to devise a means of taking out the  copper ore with the nickel. So it  became necessary to reduce and refine a part of the copper and nickel  together. So again Avas our laboratory set to Avork. And iioav Ave  haA'e devised a process by which  the copper and nickel together are  taken out in a reduced form, equal  to that in any part of the Avorld,  and as cheaply. That AA'as the next  step in the evolution.  Wc have alloAA'ed no bye-product  to escape us, in fact, Avhen Ave reduced our ores at the refining Avorks,  Ave found that the amount of ore  profitably available AAas so great  that our sulphite pulp mill could  not begin to consume the sulphurous fumes from all these ores, and  Ave must allow these to escape into  air at a loss or devise some other  use. We discoA-ered that this gas  is, by a suitable and economical process turned into sulphurous acid,  Avhich is sold to the oil refineries  and put to other uses iu the arts.  And now, gentlemen, I have illustrated to you by these various steps  how it is possible to go in to Algoma,  take the raw resources which God  left there Avhen the world AA'as created, and turn them into profitable  uses of commerce.  We haA'e assembled around these  Avorks a large and prosperous population. They engage in the best  of work and command the highest  wages. In our own case there is  not an enterprise of the same kind  in America paying higher wages,  and feAV as high. We haA'e not a  common laborer at the mill receiving less than $1.35 a day.    The boy  Ward Bros.  that sweeps up the floor gets $1.85  3c,day. Prom that the AA'ages run  up to $5 a day. We haA'e a working force of a class like this, that  Avhen I came doAvn to Toronto they  gave me $750 to pay into the Globe  for the patriotic fund. Now, gentlemen, this is the sort of citizens you  AA'aut, and, in my judgment, you  want all the immigrants of this  kind in Canada you can get.  I   must not   forget   nickel.     Iu  carrying    on    our   operations   Ave  found that Ave wore getting out the  material with too high a percentage  of nickel; that is to say, the nickel  contents of tho ores being too rich,  it became necessary to haA'e  it  reduced.     I  Avill explain  by saying  that in tho alloy which is required  for armor plate, %_- pel   cent AA'ould  be the amount of nickel, and in the  nickel pig the quantity  is  about 7  per cent. Noav, it became necessary,  in the Avork which avo proposed,  to  obtain iron ore, to smelt  Avith  the  nickel. It was at hand. We AVanted  enough   iron   to   provide   the  admixture  AA'e  required,  which  is a  large amount, as Ave are  going to  smelt 500 tons a  day.    We found  enough uot only for our own AA'orks,  but plenty to supply the New Midland furnace, and avc expect to  be  able to supply the  Hamilton  furnace   at much more   advantageous  terms than they can get it from any  other source.     You see the process  of eA'olution Avhich I haA'e been outlining for you is not yet complete.  We found iron mines 12 miles from  Lake Superior.    The only  trouble  Avas to build a railway.    We began  last summer to build that raihvay,  and Ave have  now spent  $500,000  upon it.    The road is laid  with  85  lb. rails; the ordinary rail herd is 70  lbs.   The ordinary freight cars heio  "will carry, the best of them,  from  20 to 30 tons.   Our cars are 55 to GO  tons capacity. An ordinary locomotive is 05 tons AA'eight.
