Rossland, February ,,13.���The  telegraph dispatch in "yesterday's  issue of the Miner under the caption "A National Danger," attracted a great deal of attention and  was discussed at length. A representative of the Miner asked Mr. A.  S' Goodeve, ex-mayor, Jf "he had  read- the article and what he  thought of it.>He replied : "I have  read the article, in, this: morning's  Miner, ^entitled , 'A .National  Danger,'-and if the" situation as  stated is correct I do not,think the  heading is" too strong,- but ���on the  contraryv'it_is theMduty "of every  ' citizen - of *"' British Y Columbia, to  oppose to their, utmost the granting  ' of the .charter sough _-"for .by,. Mr.    ���*"* **���F r *\ 1 **  **    Cv-   ���  Hill'and his, associates.. "Naturally  -when a new.railroad lis .mentioned  as likely to open .up anyYdistrictYwe  all- look upon it with favor- and "do  . - ���what.we can to-.encourage; it, ^par-,  -ticularly if'ari'n^tK^'pre*^nV't'case;i  * it is known as an opposition "or com-'  petitivelirie. Instinctively we feel  tEe t. truth' of.the V)old adage ^cdin-i  petition is the life of "trade,' and at  once come; to the conclusion" that*  we must'benefit by;such opposition.l  Ordinarilyj'this'iconclusion' -holds'  ��� good and we.must, ^tEerefbre,~!look  foir '.some underlying j- but "sound  reasons^-why it is not so ^iri this  case. '"'**'"       ���-    **->'<    ���" '2  "In the first 'place, who are Mr.,  Hill's associates and what are the"  steps, so far as, known, leading up  to the present deal?   -The American  Smelting and > Refining Company is'  a corporation whose principals are  members of the great Standard Oil  trust of America and. in whose control is the smelting industry of' the  .   United States. _ In> dealing with the  ���=_mining_industry-they���will^pursuel  the* same-relentless   course asv in  <lealirig"with the oil industry. ' It  is a well-known fact that, owing to  the manipulation of "the Standard  Oil trust, _many, "properties were  forced to close down in the United  States, with the result that in some  cases cities with a population much  larger than our own and "more substantial buildings have become  practically deserted aud thousands  of individuals and many independent corporations ruined. When  these same people, headed by Rockefeller, took hold of the iron industry everywhere could be seen the  trail of the serpent and the same  relentless .crushing of the" individual."  " What will the result be in this  province ?"-  "Now that these men have  turned'their attention,to this pro-  vincfe it behooves us to watch with  jealous care 0 every move on the  chessboard in order that we may  not be entrapped into selling our  birthright to this alien corporation.  What is our present position ? It  is stated in the public press that  Mr." Hill, representing the American  Smelting and Refining Company,  backed by ther Standard Oil Company, has purchased control of the  Crow's Nest Coal Company.   This,  "Robert Jaffray, president of the  coal company, denies. Mr. Jaffray  can well do this, as it is understood  the purchase has not actually taken  place, but is conditional on Mr.  Jaffray's being able' to secure for  Mr. Hill the charter applied for.  Should they succeed in securing this  charter and at the same time control of the Crow's Nest coal in what  position would it place the mining  industries of this province ? Absolutely at the mercy of the American  Smelting and Refining Company."  ���   "What  treatment  can - we   ex  ���pect?" -yy'yy'yy.y".

For thirteen years   it   has  been illegal to manufacture oiv sell  liquor in'the state of 'Kansas,'but  the law was repugnant to ^the people  and -.it   was   openly violated.  And'from contempt and open vip-  lationof their liquor law the people'  of   Kansas 'have'become  infected  with contempt for all law,  so that  neither life nor property is safe;  and mobs support the courts, and >  --police officers at'tend,-a9-interested7  spectators, duly advertised "wreck-'  ings of property at the hands of the  .Carrie Nation crusaders.  British   Columbia   will 'never  amount to much as a mining province   once ' its -chief > industry   is'  turned over'to the tender mercies  of the United States smelter trust.j  -. It is this conviction which  compels)  the people of-the province to oppose!  -the granting of the Hill charter fori  a railway from Fernie to the inter-;  national boundary.   They aro-con-  ' vinced that the granting of such a'  'charter   would ��� place    it-in  -the'  power -of   an 'alien -railway1 *and  an alien smelter combine'to 'dictate  just*what development should take  <place, and they naturally -prefer to  ' work out their own salvation. < Past  \ experience'with the 'smelter trust  'has not engendered confidence, and  -a- )  British Columbia prefers to throw  -; off whatever hold the trust has upon  - it at present, rather than'forge new  Shackles.    The.people of Canada are-keen  to'resent'any'hostile move against  their industries'by alien trnstsrand  corporations.   For years tlie" Standard Oil Company has "enjoyed in  ' comparative quiet'the 'fdll" advantage of the Canadian'tariff upon  ��� coal   oil, - and a although --the -trust  - > from '-time > to -'time ��� advanced >" the  price of oil very "littlefdisconfitot  "was, heard from "the"people \vho  were   called   upon to pay.~-.Hdw-  .fever, now that the Standard -Oil  people have joined forces with Hill's  -great "rail way trust in  its assault'  upon the mining and  smelting industry   of  British  Columbia,   tho|  people of Eastern CanadH are get-  "ting stirred up, an'd'the prospect is  that   the   Standard   Oil Company  will have a lively fight on-its hands  to retain the--tariff advantages  it  has enjoyed so< long.   -The 'government has full authority from  parliament to wipe  out the oil tariff  by   order-in-council    whenever "it  appears that a monopoly   in  the  production of oil has been established, and   it is not   likely that  ��� much difficulty will be encountered  in satisfying  the members  of the  'cabinet   that   this time has   now  : arrived.       It is putting the cart before  the  horse'to insist that before'British  'Columbia can safely embark upon  smelting and---refining   that  there  should be an1 abundance of dry ores  suitable for fluxing with the high  grade lead ores of-the Slocan.' That  the present output of the Slocan is  in a very great measure composed  of high grade silver-lead ores is due  to the present lack of 'local -smelt1  ers.    There has   been   no   encouragement    to     the      development  of the countless lbw, grade properties,   which   in-  many  -instances  -have    been     crown-granted   -arid  since allowed to remairi^idle.    Men  do not engage in mining operations-  for fun. "They must see a prospective profit, and there being i until  recently comparatively no 'dbmand  for such low-grade ores, there were  none offering.    What - requires r-to  be done-is'to'make'it' profitable for  the owners of'the low-grade - prb-  perties'to market"their ores, a condition  which they .will   doubtless  take" full advantage of.

The funeral of the late D. G. McKenzie, manager of the Arlington
mine-near.-Erie, -who 4died *af the
< v
Cottage "hospital-
mbrning,' took"place from" St. Paul's
Presbyterian "^church at' 4-; o'clock
yesterday •"afternoon. ' It -was one
of -the largest; ;if--not the largest,
ever, held f in - the _ city.. It -was so
well attended-> by friends^ citizens,
audonembers of the YMiners'VUnion
that nearly the'entire seating capa-
city~of the church was occupied,
which goes to'show how highly
deceased? was esteemed by.his-num-
erous friends of this city and com-
munity?while he was alive. **: "g
The funeral procession was formed
at'D/'McArthur'S' undertaking parlors on Vernon street,'and proceeded
to~the church.   The-procession-was
led by over thirty members ~of the
Odd Fellows' order, of which de-'
ceased was a member*.   Each_■ wore"
a spray of 'evergreen," a token for
a departed ■ brother.J-" iA.t' the right
and left of the hearse-..walked the
pallbearers, who were S. S. Powlerjj

■Byers.   Back of these came a number *of citizens, who were followed
_by about thirtj_of the men who_were_
employed at the mine and other
members    of   the   Miners'   Union.
There   were   nearly   one  hundred
'men in the procession. >
As the deceased's remains were
carried up the aisle " The Lord is
My Shepherd," was chanted by, the
choir. A short but impressive service was conducted'by Rev.' H.
Young of Ymir, assisted by Rev.
William Munroe, pastor of the Congregational   church   of   this   city.
;Rev. Mr. Young spoke from the
words " Set Thy House in Order for
Thou Shalt Die and not Live."
During the sermon he spoke kindly
of the deceased and told how he
had been -* respected and loved by
.all who knew him.' After the ceremonies the procession proceeded to
the city wharf   and   the   remains
(were placed on the steamer International.* This morning the body
will be sent to his family at Cin-
where the remains
rest in the Spring
cinnati, Ohio,
willjbe laid to
Grove Cemetery.
G. O." Buchanan of Kaslo, 1 who
knew the deceased well,' said yesterday: ''Mr. McKenzie worked in
my office at Kaslo from September,
1S02, for about a year, leaving to
give attention to a group of claims
in the Whitewater-basin. He held
this group for about three,-years
and then changed off to the B. N.
A. group on'South fork. He spent
his summers in hard work in the
hills and earned money during the
winter months and at odd times by
keeping books for mining companies, commercial firms and for the
city of Kaslo. Two years ago he
entered into partnership with Maurice A.'- Burke, and together they
assumed the management of a number >of" properties. ' Mr. Burke was

Shearer's Lecture.     -���-'*  .Rev.,J. G. Shearer, pf tlie Lord's  Day Alliance', addressed; a crowded  audience in, the" union hall last  evening. Charles J. Clayton, presi-'  dent of the Trades and Labor Council, presided. Mr. -Shearer in his  address'drew-'attention,to the com>  mon interest between the Alliance  and the labor organizations in reducing the hours of labor, and to  the beneficent results attending  such. In the course of his remarks  he admitted the necessity which  existed for the continuous operation  of smelters, but urged his hearers  to discountenance all unnecessary  work. At the close" of the address  a general discussion followed, in  which Rev. J. H.' Morgan, Rev. J.  H. White and George Gurd participated. '   ,___���_ Beanett-Spear. ____  . A quiet wedding took place at the  Congregational church at 8 o'clock  last evening, when Miss Ada Alice  Spear was married to Walter Bennett, both of this city. Rev.  William Munroe officiated." Mr.  Bennett was assisted by William  Dodds of Kaslo and Miss Jessie  McDougal acted - as bridesmaid.  There were .a large number' of  friends and relatives present. Mr.  Bennett haB been an employe of P.  Burns & Co. for the past year and  Miss Spear is well known and has a  large number of friends in the city.  After the happy couple left the  church they were given a hearty  reception and wedding dinner at  Miss McDougal's residence on Victoria street, where they will make  their home at present.  '  Those Who Can Vote.  Persons eligible to vote on the  money bylaws to come before the  electors on Tuesday next are those  whose names appear as property  owners- on the assessment' roll of  November last. This means that  all those who were entitled to vote  on the recent bylaw with respect  to the electric messenger service  can vote next Tuesday. For the  East ward the polling place will be  at the ��� police court on Josephine  street, and for the West ward at  the office of Ward Brothers on  Baker street. The polls will open  at 8 a. m. and close at 4 p. m. It  is expected that these bylaws will  meet with little or no opposition,  as the debentures to be issued do  not mean that the debt will be increased, but simply means that  enough money will be raised by  them to cover the other debentures  issued and also the overdraft at the'  end of last year.  THE LUMBERING INDUSTRY  -: " OfYBritieh Columbia.-^-*c.--;  J. Murray of Vancouver,- prpvin-  cial timber inspector for the Coast  division, arrived in--the city yesterday-morning 'and was.:during the  greater portion of the day in consultation with .the C. P. R. officials  on matters concerning the amount  of timber used in the Boundary  country by the company during the  past year.  - In speaking of the great lumbering industry, which is second to  mining iri "this province,,he" said  that during the year just passed it  had increased enormously. ' The  total royalty, received from the pro-,  vincial timber lands for ��� the year  1900 amounted to $101,000. This is  about '25' per cent in advance  of, the amount collected \n  any ���*��� previoust year. This ; illustrates Yhow , rapidly the industry  is increasingr-of late." More thi n  that amount was collected, but a rebate of 25 per cent is allowed to all  companies who' ship to foreign  ports.1 An act has been-passed -by,  Ithe - provincial, government--doing  away't/with'* the rebate "allowance*  after December.31,' 1900," therefore  it:"is''expected%that this .year^the  revenues- collected --will-^still^be  increased.7- '\y' . '--y. - *���  1 -Probably the ; company- which'  paid the largestiamou'nt of ���-revenue,  was the C. P. R.'-- At one time tlieyl  paid in $22,000,- and - since7- then  have - paid a ���" number - of * smaller  sums. -   -  '-The rate of the fees are. 50 cents  per,1000 feetfor;lumber,-25 cents for  each cord of wood cut, 25 cents per  cord for shingle timber, and 40 cents  per thousand feet for telegraph and'  other'poles,that are cut.     - x  In speaking'of the foreign trade  at. the Coast Mr."'Murray said that  the demand was exceedingly strong  but the shipments were light, owing  to, the high rate of- tonnage that  had*-to be paid.' The rates have  been advanced from about $7 -per  thousand feet to $14. ? This is causing many of the larger" companies  to hold their timber and now there'  is a considerable amount on hand."  There is a difficulty in obtaining a  sufficient number of boats for transportation purposes.' It is expected  that this difficulty-will be overcome  in the near future,and the lumber  export trade will be greatly increased. - "        , ��� -  -No large company opened np new  fields during the >year,"but many  smaller mills were built throughout  the province. Although an im--  mense quantity of timber is being  cut each year, the supply 'seems- to  .be inexhaustible.       * '-  Last Night's'Carnival.  The fancy dress carnival held at  the rink last evening in' 'aid of the  general hospital'fund was a success  financially as well as socially. Notwithstanding the large number of  tickets sold during the week, about  $90 was taken at the door. Besides the large..number of skaters  theie were nearly 200'spectators.  During tne early part of the evening "the ice waa'in fine condition  and all enjoyed' themselves. The  R. M. R. band was in attendance  and rendered good music.  The braiding of the Maypole was  the most interesting-feature of the  evening, and those ,who took part  did the work weft. They were:' Mrs.  Connon, Mrs. Akehurst, Miss Ciim-  mings, Miss Kyibcfi, G. Bell, T. J.  McCammon, R.-*-* Carley "��� and A. E.
