The Nanaimo  Herald, the recognized organ of the  Labor t party, ��� openly ' denounces  Martin, and saysthat his attempts  to stab1 Maepherson' lends color to  the report that Martin has a very  good understanding with the Dunsmuir government.  . The" provincial government desires that all members of the British  s Columbia_ij_volunteer forces   who  have returned from South Africa  should join in forming the guqrjd  of honor at the opening of the  legislature on Thursday, the 21st  instant. Although the government  has offered to pay all traveling and  other expenses, the response to its  invitation is not bo general as its  members would wish, and in a  measure it has become necessary to  hunt the modest heroes up.  THE'iron and steel manufacturers  of the'Dominion have a petition  before the Ontario government in  which the request is made that no  conveyance of any nickel deposits  be hereafter made unless the persons seeking the conveyance cove-  , nant to refine and use the nickel so  secured in manufacture in Ontario.  They also protest against the free  export of 'any form of crude nickel,  and as - the people of Ontario are  alive to their own advantage the  prayer of the petition will no doubt  be granted.  Rev.   J. G. Shearer, the field  officer of the Lord's Day Alliance,  does not hold with the opinion, so  common in the East, that Nelson is  a tough mining camp.     During his  brief'stay in Nelson  Mr.  Shearer  says ��� he was   agreeably surprised  with   the   general   observance   of  Sunday.  True,' there were breaches  of the rule, but they were such as  were also common iri,Eastern cities.  And<what" he reports of Nelson ,Mr.  Shearer says will also hold good of  the new settlements  ia Nbrtherri  Ontario through which he -passed  on his vwayrto Kootenay.. ^Throughout theraTall^there.is a general .disposition, as .far as; possible, -to ob;  serve Sunday>as a day of rest.:  *    i ,    ���...   ���.,   ���- .   . ,  If 'the men .who" represent the  mining districts of' British Columbia in the provincial,legislature are  alive to their ( opportunities, "they  will get together during the approaching session and see what can  be done in tlie wiry of encouraging  home smelting and refining.   That  there.are difficulties in   the way  must be, admitted, but it does riot  follow that they are insurmountable.   With respect to lead smelt-  ing.and refining the difficulty which  most frequently, presents itself is  the question of the market or outlet for the lead.    This naturally  raises the question as to what becomes of the lead surplus in the  United States.   Enquiry along this  line shows that' Great Britain is a  great purchaser of lead.   That its  chief'Supply is drawn from Spain,  with   Australia  second    and   the  United States third.   What stands  in the way of marketing the Canadian lead surplus in Great Britain?     There vis   no   doubt  that  the assistance of the provincial and  even the federal government could .  be secured in the furtherance of  this object.    It is also almost certain that the Canadian Pacific Railway   Company,"   having   ,in   view  added business, would also co-operate.     These    are   very   powerful  influences,   and ' with    the    prospect     of     their     active     assistance      the       members     of     the  mining districts  should have sufficient encouragement to take the  matter up.   The difficulties in the  way of lead smelting and  refining  in   British Columbia are not half  so     great      as     the     difficulties  which confronted   the   people   of  Ontario .when they sought to secure  the reduction and refining of nickel  in that province.    With Ontario it  was   not   the  comparatively easy  "question of moving the product to  a market,.but at the very outset  they were'met with the poser tliat  nickel refilling and smelting could  not 'be hoped for because United   ���* ��� 1 rp.~  ���������tea; interests l&ld^Fie^tei^ts  -^ggon the orily kj|own;>proqe_s for  rise ^extraction of ?the\*nickel frpiu  the Ontario ores. This was intended  -as a knock-out blow -for- the- nickel-  industry of Ontario, but.it was not-.!  _��        11 < ���  Instead of throwing up JtheL fight,  the Canadian  DAY, FEBRUARY 12,1��  capitalists,called in,  outside' assistance, and, inr a Ishprf  in. the  steel and'  time there was a Canadian ^process  patented for the treatment-of the  Sudbury ores which'in lv_t,yI'Jriia'riy  respects was superior ~t��o' the'pro-  cesses in voguejin the vnited States  refineries. Ontario is now reaping  the frnitS'-iO&'this-Lvictory  growth of'its'iron and  nickel-steel industry, an expansion  which promises in a very short time,  to make it the most important manufacturing center in these lines not  only in America but in the world.  Why should not British Columbia  'take a leaf from Ontario's book?  The operation of Canadian lead  ���smelters would make such raw material as is used in ' Canada much  cheaper. This condition assisted  by favorable duties should so stimulate manufacturers of1 Canadian  lead that^the Dominion would be  an exporter "of lead manufactures  instead of an importer, and the advantage gained would not be restricted to'British Columbia but extended to the whole of Canada. Is  not this worth'striving for instead  of letting "British .Columbia -be  merely a supply depot of raw ma-'-  terials, furnishing' business to  United States railways, - and'contributing chiefly ,to the growth of  United States smelting points ?    .  x One hundred tons bf coal arrived-  in   Nelsonf-yesterday .from   Leth-  .bridge.*-   It is consigned to the electric-light company at'J Greenwood:  Lethbridge is "some 00 or  70 miles  east of-Fernie, and the freight rate  , is some ,<30Jcents<perjton higher than  from Fernie. ^-Another order ,from  ?Paul Johnston, of i,he: Greenwood  smelter," is also being filled at Leth-  bridge.   Here is .a condition for the  people of British Columbia' to consider." -The Crow's-Nest >Pasa -Coal  Company is shipping; coal-and'coke  to points iri MoutanaV'over a�� route  which requires two transfers, but is  unable to supply the demands made  upon it by the-British'..Columbian  smelting and   industrial interests.  In the face of these, facts the people  are  asked- to   approve ;of a deal  whereby, in return for a charter for  a railway from the Fernie mines' to  the international boundary, James  J. Hill will purchase the controlling  interest' in the Crpw.s Nest Pass  Coal Cqmpany.   Behind Hill in this  scheme is the American Smelting &  Refining   Company, Vr W -it   is  commonly'known.the* lead trust,  which inturn is dominated by the  Standard Oil trust. > What .will hap  pen   if   this   deal is carried out?  At the best the'mining and smelting industry of British Columbia  will be at the mercy of the greatest  trust of -modern times.    If it suits  the trust to divert the Crow's Nest  Pass   coal   to   American' smelting  points it will bo.so diverte'dl , If by  diverting the fuel supply, of British  Columbia the trust   can purchase  the ores of the province at its own  price, don't; you think tho diversion  will   be made?   Where is British  Columbia going to get off?   Which  interests  are > the greater, those of  the shareholders.of the Crow's Nest  Pass Coal Company, or'those'of the  men who have invested their riioney  in the mines and smelters of British  Columbia?    This  is   the   question  which the people of British Columbia must solve. Itmatters littlewhat  the .proposed intentions of Mr. Hill  and his associates are.    The people  must consider what the granting of  the Hill railway to the boundary  means.     If   they , grant   the   Hill  charter they put their province at  the mercy of the trust.

The last issue of the  Advance gives an account of the  proceedings, in the course of which  Mr. and Mrs. Gigot were made the  recipients of a neat silver five-o'clock  tea service, accompanied by am address.  Locomotives No. 25 and 584 collided about 6 o'clock last evening  at the local C. P. R. yard. The cylinder and other portions of No. 25  were damaged and slight damages  were'done to the other. No. 25 was  standing on the switch witli no rear  lights and was not seen by the  other engine. No- one was injured.  Owing to the accident the passenger for Robson due to leave at 0:40  was delayed until nearly 8 o'clock.  Mrs. James MeGhie, aged 34 years,  died at 7 o'clock yesterday morning  at her residence at the corner of  Vernon and Cedar streets. Deceased had for some time past been  suffering from consumption, the  disease from which she died. She  was born at St. Andrew's, Manitoba, and came to this city about  three year ago. The funei-al will  take place from the residence at 2  o'clock Wednesday afternoon, Rev.  William Munroe officiating.  .

'-, -  ^_ ,y  ��� The father, tT. Gr Fawcett, was  the first Ywitness and 'told of the  allowance made by��� the ^son to his  parents.^ Then came^G. A. Hunter,  agent^ of the Manufacturers' Life  Company, who ' gave, technical  evidence of" the "expectancy of life  and the purchase of.annuities: F.'Jr  .O'Reilly, P. L. S., showed a-plan of  the yards at Robson, after which  J. C. Bradshaw,' a^CrP. R.-..conductor, who was on ''the .platform of  the car' when the accident happened, gave .detailecT.evidehce,. of  -how the unfortunate man-came-to  his death. Bradshaw was subjected'  to a lengthy cross-examination at  tlie * hands of Mr.1 Davis, in the  course of which the general rules  of the company were put in evidence  and,it was attempted to"show- that,  Fawcett owed his deatlf toThis own  disregard of the rules' and contributory carelessness.- 'The company had apparently given .express  instructions that there "was" to be  no "running shunting" at Robson  or Slocan, but" the rule was" disregarded. It was also shown that  the conductor ��� was responsible  for the "good order" of the car.  During the 'afternoon session  further evidence was given by other  conductors and brakesmen, but engineer Dow, who was in charge of  the engine of the train at the time  of the accident, was the only witness cross-examined at length. His  idea was tliat the switching of the  cars at Robson- was not shunting  within the rule and was the" usual  and proper way of. making up the  train. Mr. Wilson in closing the  plaintiff's case put in portions of  tiie examinations on discovery of  general superintendent Marpole,  superintendent Beasley and car inspector Otto Gabil.  Mr. Davis then moved for a nonsuit on the ground, (1) that there  was no evidence tp go to the jury  and (2) that the deceased was on  the evidence himself responsible for  the accident and therefore could  not recover. After argument on  these points the court adjourned at  5:30 p.m. until 11 a.m. tomorrow,  when judgment will be given on the  motion.
