British Columbia matters,-'has an-  ' nounced itself in favor of the' con.-  **���    - v ' fc r  struction of ^he Hill feeder "to tap  the   collieries  of the  Crow's s Nest  Pass -Coal   Company.    The   Times  deals with the whole' matter as an  abstract' railway   question, ' and  argues that, as competition is the  chief factor in securing- fair, treatment' from 'railway companies, no  mistake could be made in granting  the   Hill   charter;   and   that such  "other complications as the"building"  1 of the road might create could be  met and ��� disposed of later.   From  - this it is evident that the Times does  comprehend the situation.   It can  scarcely be suggested that a newspaper, published many miles distant from  the mining  centers, is  more keenly alive to the interests  of the mining aud smelting industry than are the people who are  actively engaged  in it, and those  whose all depends upon its successful   establishment  and   operation.  Against the  counsel of the Times  there is the unanimous  verdict of  the people throughout the mining,  districts of the province, that the  granting of the Hill charter, if not  refused outright, should be at least  delayed until  there   is something  like reasonable assurance that the  granting of it will not cripple, if indeed it does not kill the smelting  industry of the province.    There, is  no use in attempting to disguise  the fact that the Hill railway .from  : the coal fields to the international  boundary is projected for the, purr  pose of carrying the output of vthe.  coal mines to smelting points in the  United   States,   without   the,   remotest idea of giving the people of  British Columbia any form of t railway competition whatever. .The.  people of Southern British Columbia understand this.   They realize  that the granting of the Hill charter,  assails the welfare of every man in  the Kootenays and Southern Yale  who is engaged   or   interested in  pursuits, because it would render it  possible for an alien railway trust;  to undermine the chief industry of  the province, upon the successful  establishment of which the prosperity of the whole province depends.    This is not an extravagant  statement.    It has been repeatedly  demonstrated    that    the. Crow's  Nest     Pass     Coal  , Company , is  at   present unable :tp supply tho  fuel   demands   made   upon- it   by  the smelters of the province.   Upon  the   granting of   the Hill charter  hangs the   control of  the Fernie  coal mines, the only source of supply of the British Columbia smelters; and allied with the  Hill railway  trust   is   the   United   States  smelter trust.    It is therefore reasonably plain  that in the event of  the   Hill   railway   charter    being  granted   the   smelters   of   British  Columbia will get only so much of  the   Fernie  coal   and ,coke   as   it-  suits the. purpose of the .-Hill railway trust and the United- States,  smelter trust to let them havo, and  in determining how much this will  probably   be   it   must   be    borne  in   mind   that' the    great   object  of  the   Hill, railway, system is to  build up business for itself at United  States smelting points, and,that the  great  aim   of  the   United States  smelter trust is to kill off the independent   smelters ,of  British Col-'  umbia.   What has this province to  hope for from such a combination P  How will its prosperity be,, affected  if itssmelters are crippled, and its  mining industry placed  absolutely  at the mercy of the'United States  trust whiclrfor several weeks past  has refused to purchase a pound of  Slocan   ore.?-.'These, are questions  which present themselves   to < the  people pf the great mining districts,  'and, uritil'they can-be- answered in  -a manner which will \give-due as1  su ranee,5 they ask that no action be  taken by the federal government;  upon the application .for the Hill  , ,*\ ���       -��i.    ..'    :-    , _\ '     < .   >  charter. ��� ��� - ,< . ,  v  <- ���  ~'~    J .A Close Call,  1 / ' - Fernio Free Press, " ' '  Amos .Buck, a miner employed in  No. 1 mine,. had; an ' experience on  Monday .that few men have come  through alive."

Tlie case of Briggs vs. Newswander was concluded in the supreme  court yesterday, but judgment was  reserved. R. P..Briggs of Kaslo was  the principal witness for the plaintiff, and his evidence elicited the  facts concerning   agreements that  are alleged to have been made.   J.  Miller testified as to the value of  the property,  which he placed at  $70,000.   Those who gave evidence  for the defence were Sam Newswander, J. Reilly and F. Conrught.  The case relates to the Cork and  Dublin claims on the south fork of  Kaslo creek, and which were relocations of the Two Kidds and Monarch  claims.    Plaintiff  Briggs   sold the  Two Kidds and Monarch" to defendant Newswander who, it is" said,  allowed them to run- out and then  had them crown granted under the  names of Cork and Dublin.    Briggs,  sold them for $500 and a certain  number   of   shares in   a  company  which was to be incorporated to  carry on their,development.

"~  To speak of photography in a fog  sounds like a cutting from a comic  paper; rather than a serious scientific fact; but it is a scientific fact,  none the less, and the man who is  conducting investigations in this  peculiar line of photographyis the  shrewd and energetic ruler of the  German empire. Quite recently the  kaiser lias been steaming about in  the Baltic on his yacht, ostensibly  on pleasure bent, but in reality  with a far different object. He  was accompanied by two men  whose skill with the camera and  whose knowledge of its construction are unequaled. and the result of that little trip will be the  beginning of important developments in connection with the navy  and merchant service of Germany,  if not other countries.  By means of a specially constructed camera the kaiser's friends  succeeded in obtaining clear and  distinct photographs of vessels and  of the coast line, when those objects were a mile off and both the  photographer and the. photograph  Were enveloped in a thick fog. This  wonderful result was obtained with  an exposure of two seconds only.  The necessary complement to the  camera is an apparatus that will  enable the operator to develop his  picture in a few seconds so that it  can be thrown on a screen. The  perfection of this apparatus is now  engaging the attention of the two  scientific men, the expenses being  paid by the German government.  American Protective Policy.

I am going to appeal to. theYlegislaf-i  ture tdYjiave-him Jinpeached if he)  does not*take our part iii-this'fight."  .   Tlris^is  jthe - wickedest tovfn in  JKansas,    witH    its    sixteen, .open j  saloons and a* den of/ shame forsthe/  young men and boys tb.grow-ui> in.7  The Bible teaches, us that' eaehYper-fs  son must do their sdutyand'I^amj.  doingrmine.    I have four hundred;  womeV in . this [ state   located^at  various towns, who have signed a  pledge-to'help  me   smash1" these  joints.   This is the pledge:  ." I, a member of ^-Society of  the W. C. T. U., agree to help and  subject myself to the call'of Carrie���  Nation," in 'wreckin'g the--murder-  "shops (joints'of Kansas). I sign this  pledge and hope that I may never  see the Kingdom of God if I fail to  fulfill my promises."  Thousands of these-pledges, have  been printed and I am taking them  around-with me as I get the opportunity and can keep out of jail. It.  seems like every time I strike this  town I get.into jail. I tell you this  is'a1wicked hole; and Iiwiirget^even  with the" county, officers * here ?wlib  liftVfi i-ivnsAr>iii��,Ar1 mtf~7     *     "c*1'^.  ���c>t,  i a/  I'O-I  ���Ie,(  unless IYwen_t_into the^work of - s'avj  ing souls^from a (JfiinEard's grave  I should be "damned everlastingly.'  I - am a ^believer' in- fate, <* I think  that if I had not obeyed that mandate of God I would-have" been dead  long ere this, and here' I am, ypu  see, having''passed "through many-  battles, endured, a life of hardship  on the plains, and'yet I am a pretty,  well preserved-woman of fifty-four.  There are not many women who  ' have the strength in their 'right  arm that I have in this. Well, when  ray first husband >died of drink, I  started at once to follow the dictates, of God. I came, to Kansas,  then a wilderness of murder shops  and saloons, which are all the same  thing to me. I started theYW. C.  T.;U. in many towns on the plains  and helped >the society to get start-  ~ed~righ~t.' ~      "    T -    ' -  Finally I got .married to David  Nation, a rich 'old lawyer and farmer^ an older man; than I, but an  ardent '.believer in temperance. If  did not marry him for love of him-  self, but merely because 'he -was a j  great temperance man and pr  mised to help me in all my-trouble,  and you see how he has" stuck to  me in this trouble, while other men  threaten to sue their wives for  divorce even if they mention going  on a toiir with me. I tell you, it  takes a woman to scare a man. A  man may be brave enough,to face  a cannon, but" he will not face a  woman with an apronful of rocks.  I have found that out. I have  made as brave men as I have ever  heard of, that is bad men-killers,  take water and run when they saw  me coming;   '  Once in Medicine Lodge I had  been going about praying among  the saloons for several days when  Bill Dalton, the famous outlaw,  came to town. He told the boys  that if I came around to him and  knocked a glass of liquor out of his  hands, as I had done the other boys,  he would shoot me dead. This  news was brought to me and I  made it a point to find him out and  knock a glass of liquor right from  his lips. He drew his' pistol to  shoot, but I looked him square in  the eyes and he turned and left the  room. I have raided two saloons  in Medicine Lodge, two at Kiowa  and three at Wichita, and the lawyers have not sent me to prison or  had me adjudged insane yet, although they have tried hard enough  to. I am not afraid, of ,tlie whole  outfit. rYTake governor Stanley. YHe  was 'elected by.: the;: - prohibition  vote, and y�� helped to get men to  vote for him because I thought he  would  knock  but' the saloons of  have prosecuted nie  The plan of our organization is-to  have, a large corps of, courageous  women whom"J can rely upon and  who will go,to smashing saloons at  "a*moment's notice.'   They 'will "not  be paid for their ,work other than-  expenses.  'Whenever   I   send   the  word   to strike I "will have these  ^ women ,, so > well, drilled that they  will  know  j ust -I what" ,to do "and  what,saloons in'each*town to."raid.  .There'iare  so many in the larger  towns I expect it. will take us a  great many months toget, entirely  rid   of  them.    Here , 1/have-been  three weeks' in Wichita, 'and have  only-, had. a J chance   to   demolish  , three, Awhile there - are ' sixteen in  running' or-der now.   -- ' '  ,  It is a hard job, but we will get  through.witli it in a year, I think.  I am'willing to work at it��� for the  rest of my life, but I think a year's  smashing will-be enough' for the  saloon-keepers, and they will close  their doors."    I do not know where  I'Will strike next or when, and if I  did it would not be good policy for  me to give it out to the newspapers.  I want to say to the people of ttie  whole country that. I will accept  for the good   of   the cause small  contributions tohelp us hire lawyers  to pay for the expenses of trials of  any-woman-who may-be-locked-up  "for saloon smashing.   I know that  we will finally come out all right,  but   you   see   it takes   time   and  money.   I am making all I can in  lecturing and paying my own- expenses that way,, but these, other  women   who > went with' me   the  other day will have to hire lawyers  and so will the other women' who  will strike later.   . I. will say that  we   will give Kansas the hottest  fight ever known in the history of  the temperance crusade. The streets  may run red with our blood before  it is over, but we will fight until  the last one is dead.   I expect some  of the saloon men will get drunk  and take shots' at; us,  but ib will  only be the worse for them in the  end.    I will not shoot any one, but  I will smash up any saloon I get a  chance at, and I know ,the other  women will do the same. ' I expect  to get three thousand women to  sign   the   pledge.     That   will be  enough to run demon rum from the  plains of sunny Kansas.  VIOllOBIA'S-MIQHTY INFLUENCE.  Victoria's reign was so long that  even if her own personal agency in  public matters 'had been of little  significance she would of necessity  have been identified with the  marvelous series of events making  up one of the most remarkable  periods in the history of the world.  But queen-Victoria from' the very  beginning of her* reign was a  significant factor in public events  to au extent even greater than  could be commonly known. According to those very real, though unformulated, usages;and methods  .collectively known* as *,. the .Sritish  constitution, the sovereign "reigns,"  but does not "rule" ; and responsible government is vested in the  queen's chosen' ministers,: who, in  turn, are dependent uponYthe^'isup-  port of the elected parliament. ^     ���  -But the influence:'-of4the'���?British  sovereign, if tactfully and prudently  exerted, may count for as -much/in  certain times of emergency^as";the  more visible and tangible authority  of the czar of Russia, hot,- to mention   the .German ..emperor.   And  queen Victoria had for man*/ years  past exerted an almost unbounded  moral control over the' larger policies of >the British empire.   She was  industrious and methodical, patient  and tactful,'with a memory that  was'a great storehouse of knowledge  of things past * and 'present.   She!  had retained the>ifull possession' of  her rare-power of judgment and  discernment up to the)very last.   A  monarch who has seen fifteen successive parliaments elected and who  . dealt with a full score of different  , ministries   under' ihe headship of  ' ten different individual prime ministers, might be expected to know  something  of parliamentary institutions and executive government.  Her      accumulated  <   'experience,  indeed, was so vast'that   the deference of English statesmen to her  superior knowledge had for the past  twenty-five or thirty- years of her  reign-been a genuine rather than  an  assumed attitude. Y In her long  reign sho had seen five archbishops  of Canterbury and;six archbishops  of-York in "office, and- in like manner had probably seen an 'average  of, five or  six.. changes" 'in- all the  bishoprics' of   England.   Thus her  'knowledge of' the organization and  !life of the statej;church, of which in  (a certain^senfce  she wasr'the head,  "'was. profound, and valuable.^ She  had seen lordc 'chancellors and chief  .'justices come, and go, and/had out-;  Jived" two"'generations-, of *> judges  ^who dispensed, justice in her name.  fAndxshe had "known hundreds of  sovereigns and rulers.

Son 170.  JOHN A. IRVING & CO.  Had a Foot Crushed. '  Gus Nelson, trainmaster of the  Spokane Falls and Northern, is lying  at the general hospital with a horribly crushed foot.   The' engine of  the passenger train due here at 6:30  p.m. jumped the track near summit and Mr. Nelson was caught between the engine and tender.   He  was immediately brought to Nelson  on    a   hand   car,   arriving ' here  about   11  o'clock,   and   taken   to  the hospital, where Dr. LaBau   attended   him.   He   is   now .doing  nicely;   There seems to be all kinds  "of'-trouble  connected    with   this  road   of * late.     Outside    of  the'  numerous little things chat have  happened there has been no train  in or out bf Nelson since last Saturday morning.   The engine is now  off the track and at a late hour this  morning the train had not yet arrived.   It is believed that it will be  in   some- time today.   Pour days'  mail have been delayed.  A Presentation.  At a special meeting of Nelson  lodge I. O. O. P. last evening, Frank  MeLeod, who now holds the rank of  P. G. and P. C. P., was presented  with a combinatian jewel and an  illuminated address, which was  written by Peter Shonfeld, accountant of The Tribune, who also wrote  the address which was presented to  lord Minto on the latter's visit here.  There was a large number present  and the occasion was one of much  interest  of clean concentrating ore and at a  future date the company intends  erecting a concentrator. Mr. Harris  said if the smelter question was not  settled in the near future that' it  would be a great drawback to 'the  Slocan mining companies and that  a number of them-would be forced*  to suspend operations. - \ '  Bichardson Wins the Oup.  The All Comers trophy-which  was brought to Nelson from" Rossland by the Nelson .Curling Club  and which was to be played oft9 for  by the Richardson and Tamblyn  rinks, is now owned by the former.
