 Oj��;*^;��,jrKi;Sgg|  DAILY  EDITION   BY  MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION  BY MAIL  TWO  DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH  YEAR.  NELSCTN":  FRIDAY MORNING JUNE 22  1900.  PRICE  FIVE CENTS  NEW VENUS MILL STARTS UP  Description of Property.  Another Nelson initio has now  entered upon tho productive phase  ol' its existence, and should soon be  piying dividends. The Venus mill  was started up yesterday for a  short trial spin, and from tho first  of next month will bo crushing ore  continuously.  Before tlio mill waS started a  TmiiUNK representative was taken  over the workings of the mine by  Dr. Doolittle, ' president of the  Venus Gold Mining company. The  property is developed by three  tunnels driven in ou the vein which  . runs through the hill towards the  \_�� Athabasca with a dip of from 30 to  40 degrees.  The ore body is a decomposed  quart/, carrying a good deal of iron  nnd lies between granite and dioi-  ite. The main working tunnel, No.  _, attains a vertical depth of nearly  300 feet, but still the quarts*; is not  perceptibly less oxidized than on  the surface. The vein averages  from IS to 21 inches in width,  sometimes widening out to four  feet, and averages between $-10 and  $50 to the ton. In many places,  alongside the vein considerable  quantities of decomposed granite  is found which, though not high  grade, contains sufficient gold to  pay to mill.  Tunnel No. 1-is iu 105 feet. Tunnel No. 2, 75 feet' lower down the  hill, is iu (500 feet and is not being  driven further as it is now very  close to the Juno group. Where it  leaves off the ledge shows up over  .two feet wide.in the breast of the  tunnel. Tunnel No. 3 is the main  working tunnel, and is in about 700  feet. The ore iu this tunnel is uniformly rich, aud from the breast  theTRiBUNE representative knocked  a handful of ore, which showed  numerous colors when panued. The  tunnels are connected by upraises  anjvtA.'thers are now being driven,  and ��� tho ore when stoped will be  .'-shot down these chutes iuto "the  lower tunnel, and thence trammed  to the mill. No stoping has as yet  been done. A fourth tunnel has  also beon recently started lower  down the hill.  This covers the underground  work. When Dr. Doolittle first  bonded the property from Robert  lleddle, about IU mouths ago, a  good deal of surface trenching and  - prospecting was done to establish  the location of the ore body, but  work of this character is now, of  course, no longer necessary.  The Venus mill, which is of a  novel design, so far as this province  is coucerned, is supplied by the  Mystic Rotary Crusher company of  .California, and it is contained in,  probably, one of the largest log  buildings iu the province.  The ore cars are run out on a log  trestle, about 70 feet high, to the  upper bin~wliich���has a capacity of  150 tons. The ore is dumped there,  and falls through a gate iuto a self-  dumping car standing on weigh  scales iu a lower bin. Prom there  it drawn by gravity into the automatic feeder and so into the mill.  Everything is so arranged that  once the cars have been dumped the  ore has not to bo handled again.  Jt is intended that before going on  shift the millman shall go up to the  weigh scales and weigh out enough  ore for his shift. It is expected to  mill 30 tons a day, aud it is calculated that owing to the automatic  arrangements, this will only take  about twenty minutes. There "will  be one man to look after the mill,  aud the company hopes, in this  way, to treat tlieir ore with the  smallest labor bill ou record, namely, two men for the twenty-four  hours.  The mill itself is very interesting, and certainly worked admirably yesterday. It is built somewhat on the principle of a Gates  crusher. There is a cone inthe center  and the crushing rings outside are  drawn slightly off truth, thus  crushing the ore as they revolve.  The whole rotates ou 21 steel balls  and the rock, when crushed to a  certain degree of fineness, falls  among these balls, is ground to a  pulp and expelled with a circular  sweep through a 40 mesh screen  when it falls into the duct w,hich  leads the pulp on to the tables.  There ar e two tables with three  plates on each. The tailings are  carried lower down the hill where  a dam has been constructed to catch  them. They will be treated by a  cyanide plant which is to be erected  later on.  The mill at present is being driven  by steam power, but the manage  ment intends eventually to use  electricity, and will obtain tho  necessary power from Bounington  Falls. The engine and boiler were  obtained from the Atlas Engineering Works of Indianapolis. The  former can develop 35 and the latter  10 horsepower. Fifteen horsepower  is suflicient, however, to drive tho  mill.  The camp is situated some 300  yards from tho mill to take advan-  tage'of an excellent spring of water,  and will be a pattern camp  when all the contemplated  improvements are finished A  large new bunk house' is  to be erected, and in a separate  building will be bathrooms, with  hot and cold water laid on, and [a  large,smoking room for the use of  the men. A noticeable point, which  might bo imitated to advantage by  other mines, is the practice of collecting and regularly burning tins  and all kinds of kitchen refuse.  The camp is thus perfectly clean,  and there are no offensive smells.  The Venus group, which belongs  to the mining company of the same  name, is nearest to the city of the  Nelsou mines. It is situated on the  summit and northern slope of  Morning mountain, less than two  miles from the town in an air line.  The management is suie that the  property carries the Athabasca  ledge ou account of its direction  and its lying in the same formation.  However this may be, they have  certainly got a very large amount  of high grade ore in sight, and the  compauy should soon be producing  gold bricks and declaring dividends  with regularity and dispatch.  The New Lieutenant-Governor.  Hon. sir Henri Gustave Joly de  Lotbiuiere, who will succed Thomas  R. Mclnnes as lieutenaut-governor,  .is the eldest son of the lateGaspard  Pierre Gustave Joly, a Huguenot  native of France, who became  Seigneui de Lotbiuiere by his marriage with Julie Christian Chartier  de Lotbiniere, grand daughter of  the late Marquis de Lotbiniere, engineer-in-chief of New France. - Sir  Henry .was b.orn.in France���in,_1829,  and was educated there, and, coming to Canada, took up the study  of law, being "admitted to the Quebec bar in 1855. He was -returned  to the Canada assembly in 1801 for  the county which bore his name,  and took a prominent part  in tho confederation debates, opposing the union of the provinces. In  1807 he was returned to both the  houso of commons and provincial  legislature, and remained a member  of both bodies until 1874, when  dual representation was abolished,  aud he resigned his seat in the Dominion house. He led the opposition in the provincial assembly uutil 1878, when he became premier,  which position lie held for a year.  For the next four years he was  again leader of the opposition. In  1885 he retired from public life, on  account of his disapproval of the  ~course~of_the-Liberal���parfcyin- re~  spect to the Riel rebellion, but reappeared in 1893 as a delegate to  the reform convention at Ottawa.  From that time he took a prominent part in the campaign which  resulted in the Liberals being returned to power in 189(5, and, being  elected for Faatneuf. was made  minister of inland revenue. He is  a member of the church of England. Two sous are officers in the  British army, serving in India.  The Lardeau Extension.  From lettors now passing between  interested parties at Trout Lake  and C. I'. R. officials it is regarded  as certain that construction will be  commenced nofc later than the ond  of July, as soon as the Balfour  branch is taken over by the company,. It is only a matter of two  months work when once begun.  Fred Robinson of the Fred Robinson Lumber Co., Comaplix, has received assurances that the road will  be built right through to that point  this fall, from which point the company , will transfer to Arrowhead.  The scows, slip, and tugs are already provided for the Kootenay  lakes, so that a slip at Comaplix or  nearer Arrowhead is all that is  necessary.  Bernier Succeeds Joly.  Ottawa, June 21.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���It has been decided  that Mr. Bernier, M. P. for St.  Hyacinthe, will replace sir Henri  Joly, minister of the inland revenue  department. The official announcement of the changes is expected tomorrow when lord Minto signs the  order-in-council dismissing lieutenant-governor Mclnnes. Bernier's  appointment will be generally  approved.  BALLPLAYERUEAVE TODAY  Notes on Athletics.  The baseball  club leaves on ��the  morning train today for Spokane,  where they   will   play two   games  with   the Spokane  Athletic   Club  nine.   The first game is billed  for  tomorrow afternoon and the teams  meet again   on Sunday   afternoon.  The Nelsou string includes Rockenfield, who will  officiate as  captain;  Waters, Houston,   Partridge,   Ea-  crett, Cavorjey, Blackwood,  Mills,  Neelands and Phair.   The players  have practiced faithfully, and developed speed and accuracy to a degree perhaps not hitherto attained  by any   nine sporting the Nelson  colors.     If   Spokane    wins    both  games they must place a remarkably fast amateur   aggregation   on  the diamond.   Comparatively little  is known as to the strength of the  Spokane nine, bufc it" is safe to predict that it will be the choice of all  the best baseball material in the  city.    Manager Waterman believes  that   over 50   enthusiasts will   accompany the team, in which event  a specially   low rate   has been   secured over the S. F. & N. road.  At the rifle ranges on Wednesday  several good scores were made. Dr.  Hall put on 91 points out of a possible 105, thus equalling the best  score of the season;- . D>r. Hall, H.  Bird aud Alex Grant "are the only  members of'the association who  have put on over 90'points this  season. *     .    -  The football club will have a  practice 'match -on the" recreation  grounds tonight? For the'purpose  of making an interesting game sides  have been chosen. One team1 represents a rough draft of tbe eleven,  who will meet Kaslo, on July 3rd,  and is as follows,: Goal, Dr. McLennan ; backs, Dill (captain), arid  Fisher ; half-backs, Hodge, ^ Blaney  and Montgomery; center, Dr. Stod-  dart,;- right wing, Long and'TDun-  -can; left wing,-Dr.^Hall'and Crough.,  It is - probable that after - tonight's game some- changes will'  be made in the above list before the  club meets Kaslo. The other team  is captained by Jack Vanstone and  includes a number of first-class  footballists. It is an even wager as  to which eleven is the fastest, the  regular team being.. particularly  strong in "its back division, while  their opponents have the .fastest  forwards. Citizens who'delight in  a well contested athletic game will  find what they are looking for  tonight. The game will be started  shortly after 7 o'clock.  The cricket club desires to arrange  a practice match at the recreation  grounds on Saturday afternoon at  2:30 o'clock and secretary Forbes  requests "--very player who can to  turn out.. This invitation embraces  all cricketers in the city whom the  secretary has not had time to notify  personally of the game. Splendid  practice may be had during the  afternoon and it is hoped that every  admirer of the game will be present.'  The lacrosse club's projected trip  to Greenwood next week has been  declared off. The Greenwood people wrote stating that they could  not get up a team iu time for the  game.           , CITY LOCAL NEWS.  ��� W. A. Crittendon received a telegraphic dispatch from Spokane yesterday apprising him of the death  of his wife who had gone there to  spend the summer. The, sad intelligence, was a great shock as it  was not known here that Mrs. Crittenden was ill. The bereaved husband leaves this morning for Spokane.  Ewart & Carrie,,.architects, are  preparing, plans for a Congregational church. The members of the  congregation own two splendid lots  at the corner of Stanley, and Silica  streets, opposite to the;Phair hotel  annex, with a frouta'ge*;of;50 feet  on Stanley and 120 feefc on Silica  streets. On these lots it is proposed  to erect a church 72 by 50 feet, with  seating accommodation for 400  people at an outlay of about $4500.  The Congregationalists have not decided just when the edifice is to be  commenced, bufc will probably take  action in the immediate future if  the Sunday services continue to be  as largely attended as at present.  F. R. C. Beer, Phil Small aud T.  A. Mills were sworn in yesterday  as special constables to do duty  while the circus remained in the  city.  The English-American show drew  fairly large crowds to its performances afc Lakeview athletic grounds  yesterday. The show was to have  exhibited on the recreation grounds  but the manager shied at the $100  deposit demanded by the council to  ensure the grounds being left in  good condition and pitched his tents  at the end of the tram line. The  show consisted of a series of fairly  good variety turns, but lacked the  popular circus features which caused  most of the audience keen disappointment. The side shows and  "after concert" werevfakes.  The young Frenchman named  Pretric, charged with stealing  several dozen poker -.chips, was arraigned afc the police court again  yesterday morning' and sentenced  to three - months - imprisonment.  Pretric pleaded guilty and took his  medicine without a word.  F. A. ��� Forest, superintendent of  the Nelson & Fort Sheppard road,  was in the city yesterday on business iu connection with his road.  BULLER PRESSING ADVANCE  General War Items.

The Boers continue  to assert they have had successes  east of Pretoria.  The colonial office publishes a notification by the military government at Johannesburg of the stoppage of a check for ��40,000, drawn  for the French bank in South Africa upon the National bank of the  South African Republic, and warning all persons against dealing in  the check, as the funds of the National bank are the property of the  queen.  The Transvaal government, according to the Lorenzo Marquez  correspondent of the Times, is reduced to severe financial straits,  and is endeavoring-to meet the  emergency with treasury bills, but  the people refuse to accept them.

Buller's Advance West.  London, June 21.���It is hoped in  London that general Buller's advance Sv'est will hasten the conclusion of hostilities by cutting off  all communication between president Steyn aud general Dewet force  in Orange River colony, and general  Botha's burghers in the Transvaal,  and completing the combined movement against Steyn and Dewet to.  which lord Roberts referred in a  recent dispatch. Dispatches from  Lorenzo Marquez reiterate the statement that secretary Reitz sailedfor  Europe recently on a Dutch warship.    Sailors Landed.  Shanghai, June -21.���Bluejackets  have beon landed at Woo Sung, ten  miles north of here, to protect the  telegraph station.  SEVERAL PROVINCES QUIET  Tho Chinese View.  Washington, D. C, June 21.���  Minister Wu was seen today after  his visit to the state department.  He   said secretary   Hay   had   expressed   his    gratification   at   the  news   the   minister   had   brought  from viceroy Liu of the three great  Yang Tse Kiang provinces, Kiang  Su, Kiang Si and An Hud, to the  effect that    he   is,    iu    conjunction   with   his    colleague   viceroy  Chan of   the   provinces of  Hunan  and Hu Peh, fully   competent to  maintain   ,; order      and      ensure  protection      to      all      foreigners  within     their     jurisdiction,     and  asking that no foreign forces  be  landed within the provinces.   Minister Wu said he would reply to  viceroy Liu and repeat secretary  Hay's assurances that no foreign  troops, or more specifically. United  States   forces,   would   invade   his  territory so long as peace and order  was preserved therein. The appearance of alien forces in  these provinces, said Wu, far from  having a  subduing effect on   any   disorder  that might be brewing under cover,  would only bring a flame if the  spark was there.  The minister was very much impressed at a suggestion published  this morning that he be held a  hostage by this country as a guarantee of the safety of minister  Conger and the legation afc Pekin.  He characterized the writer ~ as a  narrow-minded pedant, and a person wholly incompetent to speak  upon international affairs.  *������ "If a state of war exists in China,"  the minister said, "I should ask for  my passports or they would be  handed me. This is the only course  . that would be followed if such were  the case."  " Was your government at Washington responsible?" he queried,  "for the Italian lynching at Tallu-  lah'f* No; neither is the Chinese  government responsible for the  depredation's of lawless natives,  ^over" whose "movements it has "no  control. Does the action of the  empress dowager in degrading the  commandment of the Taku' forts  for firing on the foreign fleet prove  the imperial government had no  part iu . it?" The minister  was surprised and sorry ' to  hear .of the report that Li  Hung Chang had reconsidered  his intention and would not go to  Pekin. He said he had great faith  in his ability to relieve the situation there. He, also expressed his  belief that Seymour's column has  arrived at Pekin and that the legations there are safe.  Berlin, June 21.���Lu Hai Houn,  Chinese minister iu Berlin, received  a representative of the Associated  Press today. In reply to questions  he denied emphatically that the  Chinese government meant to wage  ~war7"and���declared that~the com^  manders of the Taku forts undoubtedly acted without instructions.  He referred to the reports of the  murder of baron Von Ketteler and  of the destruction of legations as  "fables."     French Safe in Yunan Fu.  Paris, June 20.���The French consul at Mong Tse cables that he has  received from M. Francois, French  consul at Yunan Fu, the following  telegram, dated June 15th : "We  were attacked June 10th on leaving  Yunan Fu, and wero forced to return to the town. All our baggage  was rifled and the missions and railroad buildings were burned, except  my- residence, where 1 had fathered  our countrymen, aud wliich we defended with our rifles. After 24  hours tho mandarins having at last  taken measures, 1 called upou them  to conduct us to the frontier,  and I expect them to answer  for the safety of the roads.  It is urgent that the government  should demand peremptorily that  we be permitted to leave, as we are  like prisoners, but the French  troops in Indo-China must not  cross the frontier. All the frenchmen are safe afc present. The consul at Mong Tse adds that the situation there is still critical. Alarms  are frequent, but thus far there  have been no serious incidents. The  dispatch from M. Francois is a day  later than the   last previous  news.  Dynamiters Deported.  Nkw York, June 21.���Joseph  Mullet and James Forest were taken from Ellis Island today to the.  immigration station in the barge  office and officially notified to prepare for deportation, the United  States treasury department having  rendered an adverse decision to  their appeal from the verdict of  of the board of inquiry which excluded them. The decision, which  left Washington last night, was received at the barge office by commissioner McSweeny, who first notified the immigrants and then the  Cunard Steamship Company. The  Cunard people has to pay for the  board of the two immigrants at 35  cents a day since. May 25ch, and  will have to carry them back' to  Liverpool, passage free. Commissioner McSweeny said the two men  had received this morning telegrams  from Rocky Mountain O'Brien and  from former judge Curtis, their  counsel. It is thought that judge  Curtis may ask for papers in habeas  corpus, so as to prolong, the case  and delay the deportation, which  otherwise will take on Saturday on  the Cunard liner Servia.  Khedive in England.  London, June 21.���Abbas Hindi,  the Khedive of Egypt, arrived in  English waters today on his first  official visit to this country. The  royal yacht Osborne brought his  highness from Flushing to Victoria,  where he was received with a salute from the fleet. The khedive  is accompanied by the commander  of the Anglo-Egyptian forces,' general Wingate, and sir James  Rodd, British secretary. of ' legation and secretary of the  consulate-general in Egypt. The  duke of Cambridge, "the Turkish  ambassador and a number of other  distinguished persons with a guard  of honor assembled at the Charing  Cross station to welcome the  khedive, but th"ey received iuforma-  tion after a tiresome wait that his  highness was suffering from  sickness, aud would have to postpone his departure from - Port Victoria for London. ' The party  therefore dispersed, and -shortly  after, in response to a telegram, a  London specialist left .the city on a  train to attend the khedive.  A Lucky Nurse.  New York, June ~ 21.���Erna  Dennis, a young German girl, sailed  today ou her way. to Hamburg, .to  claim a- fortune of $3,000,000 left  her by a rich man of Berlin, who  died two weeks ago. It was in  Berlin six years ago that Erna  Dennis was nurse iu a hospital. A  patient whom she attended was a  rich clothing merchant of Berlin.  Consumption was sapping his constitution. By careful nursing he  recovered, and when discharged he  was a well man: The rich merchant  never forgot the nurse. He proposed marriage, but her parents  dissented, owing to the disparity in  their ages. Two weeks ago the  merchant died. - He willed his  sweetheart nurse his entire fortune  of $3,000,000, and she sailed today  to claim it.  A Big Trout Lake Property.  Development on the Tenderfoot  grouponTenderfoot^creekT-in-the-  Trout Lake district, has shown up  an extraordinary body of gold ore.  The longest of the three tunnels now  being driven cut a body of 20 feet  of decomposed quartz which gave  returns of $5 in gold to the ton all  across the vein. After running  through this stuff the tunnel  pierced a body of quartz, 22 feet in  thickness, running from $5 to $10  in gold to the ton. The lead is exposed for a distance of 3,000 feet.  The tunnels, 100 feet, 05 feet, and  20 feet respectively, mark the development work done on this group  up to the present.  Lumberman Missing.

According to the Shanghai  correspondent of the Daily Express  she   was   shot through. fche bows.  The     correspondent      says     that"  Chiuese  riflemen on both banks of -  the river attacked her but unsuccessfully.

Of these trials the most {important,  as involving the largest amount of  money, is that of Williams vs. the  British America. Corporation, the  plaintiff, L. F. Williams, claiming  $002,020.70 and 6 per cent per annum on that amount from June  28th, 1898. Mr. AVilliams was one  of the original shareholders in the  Le Roi Mining Company, and one of  the majority who agreed, aiid did  sell their shares to the B. A. C. at  $5.

Ifc has .discovered a local company which had intended spending  $100,000 in. construction, $50,000 of  which would have been  disbursed  in wages���but which has since decided   to do nothing because the  corporation of the city of Nelson  has been asked to increase the expenditures   upon   street   improvements to the extent of $3.25 per  day.    Capital is proverbiallytiraid,  but it must be conceded that -the  company which the Daily Panic has  introduced to its readers holds the  record for white feather performances.   Here is a company which  for six months lias been anxious to  improve the   material welfare   of  the wage-earners of Nelson  by disbursing  $50,000 in   wages; but the  labor troubles, culminating in the  request of nine men for an aggregate increase in   wages  of   $3.25,  forces its officers to abandon their  -projectratid-keep-their-money-ina-  strong box.  In their selection of this magnanimous company, however, the publishers of the Daily Panic appear  to be singularly unfortunate. The'  Nelson Gaa & Coke Company has  seemingly betrayed an acute hear-  ing.for. murmurihgs of discontent  on the part; of wage earners. Several months ago, the officers of this  Eastern company called for tenders  for the construction of the present-  premises. There was not at that  time sufficient uneasiness in labor  circles to attract even the vigilant  eyes of the publishers of the Daily  Panic ; but the oflicers of the Coke  . & Gas company noted it. They  called for tenders for the construction of the company's premises, bufc  even the competitive prices of  responsible characters in Nelson  were regarded as exorbitant, with  the result that the work of construction was taken in hand by the  company itself, and completed at  an advance of several thousand  dollars over the tender of responsible contractors.  ��to ��rttwm*  The enterprise of the publishers  of the Daily Panic should commend  itself to  the business men of Nel-  Thb publishers of * the Daily  Panic do not make it clear whether  or not the nine rockmen, who requested the city of Nelson to give  them an aggregate increase in wages  of $3.25 per day,, are entirely  responsible for depriving Nelsou of  the wage expenditure of $50,000.  It may be that this $3.25 had not so  much      to     do    .with     cheating  Nelson out    of    $50,000,   as   the  state   of the market for> gas and  coke.    It may be that the economic  manufacture of coke requires a- sale  of the by-product such as gas.   Ifc  may be that the local gas aiid coke  company afc present manufactures  more  gas  than it can find a profitable market for.    This being so it  would probably be unprofitable for  the company to erect coke ovens at  a   considerable   expense    for   the  manufacture   of   additional    coke.  When  this  coke aud gas company  was formed it was announced that  its  chief   business   would   be  the  manufacture of coke for the Hall  Mines smelter; and that it would  manufacture gas simply as a byproduct.    Might it not.be that the  closing   down   of   the Hall  Mines  smelter, wliich shut off the market  for the chief product of the Gas and  Coke-compauy,_hadas_.jn_uch_to_do_  with the company's determination  not   to  spend its $100,000, as this  truly    remarkably     $3.25,   which  represents the difference between  what   the   city of Nelsou pays its  rockmen,    and    what   they   have  requested ?      ,  The officers of the South Kootenay Board of Trade do not consider  that the board is being fairly treated by those who desire to secure  improved means of communication  between Wauehope and Nelson.  They say the officers of the board  have used every endeavor to secure  the improvements asked by those  interested around Wauehope, and  that the only obstacle that stands  in the way of their accomplishment  is the dissension.among those most  interested as to how the appropriation desired should be expended.  There apparently is no limit to  ,the   calamities which   those   nine  rockmen have entailed   upon the  city of Nelson in  consequence of  their request for an eight-hour instead of a nine-hour day.   This request has not yefc been granted, and  if it .-were it would mean an increased expenditure for the city of  Nelson of  jusfc three  dollars  and  twenty-five cents per day, but to  the mere circumstance of it being  made fche publishers of the Daily  Panic are tracing home responsibility for every disappointed hope and  speculation that is cherished with  in the corporate limits. They suggest that rather than countenance  such reckless extravagance'the city  council should suspend all' street  work, and thafc the citizens wade  about in mud up to their shoe tops  for the lack of proper thoroughfares. . And the end is not yet in'  sight. There is now a lingering  suspicion as each . fateful day is  born that the unlucky' three dollars  and two bits will be found barring  the way of the federal government;  in its frantic endeavors to erect  those public buildings which Nelson  has yearned for so long.  Some of the Conservative newspapers are making a great fuss  over the circumstance that the  Laurier government has' declined to  make any provision for the representation of Dawson City in the  house of commons until after the  next census.- Ifc is worth noting  that-four^y'ears���ago���these-same^  newspapers had nothing to say  when in the rearrangement of the  British Columbia 'seats certain portions of the province we're practically deprived of representation." ������  Premier Dunsmuir completed his  cabinet yesterday. W. G. Wells,1  the member for fche north riding of  East Kootenay, was sworn in as  chief commissioner of lands aud  works; Richard McBride, Hie member for Dewdney, as minister of  mines; and J. D. Prentice, of  Lillooet, as provincial secretary.  West Kootenay is therefore deprived of the cabinet representation which it had in : the two  former governments.  Yesterday a vote was taken in  Greenwood upon- the question of  the annexation of the townsite of  Anaconda. Thelresult of the voting  has hot yet been .received, but all  accounts seem to agree that the  fight was a bitter one, between the  followers of mayor Hardy aiid those  of ex-mayor Wood. The chief objection to the annexation project  appears to have been that ifc' was a  scheme to secure the improvement  of the Anaconda townsite at the  expense of the ratepayers of Greenwood.

In the admirable little book, "The  TSiitisk Empire," by sir -Charles  Dilke, there is a very pregnant sentence: "Direct colonial contribution towards Imperial defence is a  matter whicli "needs" discussion."  The great services rendered to the  empire iu the present war by Canadian, Australian aud South African  ��� soldiers haA'e brought before the  people of this country as never before the splendid possibilities that  exist within the empire outside of  the United Kingdom for Imperial  defence. The problem is, How to  .make the most aud the best of these  possibilities ? The following are  the views of prominent Canadians  in answer to the subjoined questions  by the London Daily Chronicle :  (a) Do you think tiie granting of  direct representation in an Imperial council would lead to the colonies contributing a proportionate  share of the cost of the army and  navy of the empire? (b) How would  "you propose tcT^deal^vvitli-tire-coP  onial troops? (c) Do you think  the colonies would be willing to  keep small standing armies or  navies, or would they pay any part  of the cost of the Imperial army or  navy ?   Sir John Bourinot, clerk of the  Canadian house of commons : "Direct representation in the cabinet  ���of England, and in a truly Imperial  parliament, would enable Canada to  consult. on all Imperial questions  Avith all parts of the empire.* But  ic is doubtful if the people of the  dependency would be willing to  allow any body except their own  parliament to vote contributions to  the cost of the army and navy of  the empire. They are willing to  support their own militia, and  make it in every respect an effective organization���practically a colonial standing army���aud use it for  the support of the empire, as in the  South African war. The colonial  parliaments must have control of  their own troops, and vote directly  the money contributions to imperial  purposes."  Mr. Macfarlane, inland revenue  department, Ottawa : "The granting of imperial representation  would result in contributions by  the colonies for imperial purposes.  Most of the colonies have militia or  military systems which could not  be dispensed with, if for no other  reason than the necessity of sometimes suppressing local disturbances. Some arrangement would,  however, seem possible (like that in  the German empire), whereby in  time of war colonial troops could be  placed at the disposal of the imperial authorities. The colonies  would be   willing   to   keep   small  THE BANK OF  BRITISH   COLUMBIA  NELSON  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, IJ. S.,  Atlin, B.C., and Dawson City, N. W. T.  standing armies, but not navies.  There should be only one fleet.  The colonies would willingly contribute to the maintenance of the  latter on a j^fair basis of assessment.' "  Principal Grant, Queen's University, Kingston : "Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa  coidd not be asked to contribute a  proportionate share of the cost of  the army and navy of the empire,  unless and until they have a proportionate share of the supreme  council of the empire. The time has  hardly come for that. Their main  duty now, is to fill up tlieir vast  vacant spaces with population, and  to consolidate themselves. They  can also see to the defences of their  own coasts and harbors, improve  the volunteers and militia, conforming them iu arms, equipment and  organization to those of the mother  country. A royal commission should  be appointed to look into the whole  subject of the colonial troops aud  make suggestions. The colonies  already have small standing armies.  Australia has a small navy and  Canada the nucleus of one in the  shape of a preventative service.  The Cape contributes directly to  the imperial navy. Newfoundland  is organizing a uaval reserve. Canada, in her seventy thousand seamen, has splendid material for such  a force.". Dr. Grant concludes under  this head: "May I point out here  that Canada and Australasia cost  the empire nothing? If they were  separated/from the empit,e1_Britaiu_  Imperial Bank of Ganada  HKAD  OFFICE. TORONTO.  Capital Authorized $2,500,000  Capital Paid up $2,458,603  Rest  $1,700,000  D. R.

To suggest that  they are part of the cost of the  imperial army and navy before they  have had a voice in the supreme,  council of the empire is unreasonable."   Dr. Carman, General Superintendent of the'-Methodist, Church of  Canada:���"Representation in such a  council as I have indicated would  from the the beginning, subject to  the conditions of a federation, lead  to the colonies contributing a fair,  if not at onco proportional, share  of the cost of the imperial army  army aud navy"���the share to be  designated by the central imperial  council. 'That colonies should contribute-.--Voluntarily and without  pressure would be the supreme test  though uot the only one, of the  preparedness of the empire for federation.

Further, each colony, and the empire  at large, should maintain a large  and efficient militia, and these several standing armies should be regarded as one army for imperial  purposes. . Wherever raised, or by  whomsoever     maintained,      they  should be under one command, and  interchangeably allotted   for   service in different parts for the common interest. ... . .It is preferable,  during the formative period at all  events, that the colonies shall'keep,  small standing armies and navies  rather than pay part of the cost of  an imperial army and navy. This  would better foster both patriotic  spirit at home and national and  imperial spirits abroad. Healthful  emulation and high example would  strengthen vital bonds. Paying  over hard cash into a remote treasury would not so enkindle patriotic  fervor or stimulate to gallant service and heroic deeds.

Mr. Kemp, president of the board  of trade: " Each part of the empire would be willing to assume its  fair share of responsibility, wliich is  chiefly- concerned with a mutual defence. AVhat we have recently  done in sending troops to assist  Great Britain in-'-'South Africa is  very little for a country so strong  and wealthy as Canada is, and it is  not for anything we expect to receive in the future from Great  Britain, although it is proof of our  good will. * *. * The question  of improving our coast defences,  and of doing something in contributing to the navy, are proper  questions for^us, ��� to consider. I  venture-iP|imiiKSthat we should  have a force/of-J-egular soldiers, independent of"'our militia���part of  which might be on.iactive duty and  the balance in reserve, in all at  least 10,000 men���these for duty  when the emergency demanded in  any part of the empire." Mr.  Kemp expresses the hope that "our  government will'make full provision for payment of the troops wliich  we have sent," and continues: "We  do not desire that money shall be  taken from the British taxpayer  for bur soldiers while in Africa."
