They go  ��� -to Greenwood instructed to vote in  * favor of the diversion bf the Fernie  r coal to smelting points in the United  'i  \i  ���1  '���s:  If  If  I  States; and at, a time when the  Greenwood smelter, owing to the  inability of the' Crow's Nest ��� Pass  ~ Coal "Company to supply it with  fuel, is obliged 'to draw upon ' the  fuel supply of the Trail smelter.  During the fiscal year ending  June 30th, 1900, the district of  West Kootenay contributed under  the several tax heads $204,019.41, or  about one-fifth of tho entire revenue of the province, and of this  sum tho mines of the district, whicli  are the chief sources of wealth, contributed but $23,465.52, or consider-  . ably less than teu per cent. There  does not appear in these figures  much ground for the complaints of  harsh treatment raised by some  mine owners over the increase of  ' the output tax.  Thb   Miner   publishes    a   long-  winded    complaint    against    the  members-of the staff in the local  post    office.      Complaint   against  postal services, however, is univer-  ' sal.    It is not to be expedtcd, there-  , fore,  that the Nelson division of  the service will escape criticism, but  with respect  to it The Tribune  ' will   venture   the   assertion   that  while it may not be all that could  be desired, the service is very much  * better than would be furnished by  any   other staff of' the' same Size  with   the   same   accommodations.  The trouble with the Nelson service  in that it has outgrown its present  quarters.     The meihberd  bf  the  Thr Tribune is quite willing to  stand by the verdict of the people  of Nelson upon  its criticism of the  action of the rump of the  Nelson  board   of tiade   who   resolved in  favor of James J. Hill's entrance  into the coal fields of East Kootenay-  Members who presume to speak for  the board owe it to their organization   to   inform   themselves   upon  matters whicli they propose to deal  with, and to cweigh  the probable  effect of their action  with regard  to the same. Tlie fact that " Harry"  Bentley came fresh from the Fernie  office of'the Crow's Nest' Pass Coal  Company, and assured them that  the coal company was- meeting all.  demands   made   upon   it, did not  justify them in passing the resolution which Harry Bentley as the  agent of the coal company desired  them to pass.   Since the members  of the Nelson board have resolved  in i favor of the diversion of  the  Fernie coal to United States smelt;  ing points, they must have arrived  at   the   conclusion that Canadian  smelters are not experiencing any  difficulty'in securing coal and coke  from Fernie.   What The ' Tribune  says is that no assurance which Mr.  Bentley gave should weigh against  the   evidence   of a * fuel ' scarcity  which has been publicly offered day  after day for weeks past, and which  has - not been successfully eontro:  verted.     The Tribune "holds that  -the evidence of J.'J7Campbell; commercial manager of the Hall Mines  smelter,-should' receive, as-much  consideration from members of the  Nelson board-of trade'as any plead^  'ing for the "Crow's "Nest Pass 'Coal  Company which Mr/ Behtlejr could  make.- Mr. Campbell some days ago  publicly   stated through the press  " that the1 fuel shortage' has rbeen  "-for some time past the  cause'of  .'great,    anxiety ,   on.  the  of ' the-   smelters."   ��� .This  statement   was - probably -before  every, ���   member    of   ' the - - board  who Voted Tfor the Hill - resolution  on Monday/- evening. - Then there  was the public'announcement that  the Greenwood smelter. was' forced  to biiy coal from' Lethbridge,at ah  advance, of one dollar per'ton,'owing  to the inability of the "Crow's Nest  Pass-Coal Company to fill its orders.  And'on top of '.this there -was the  public knowledge of the ,fact that  the operations of the Trail, smelter  have been very seriously hampered  by the inability of the coal company  to furnish' fuel. 'This Tribune holds  ~that"scrlorig"as 'the Crbw'sNestPass"  Coal Company ^is unable to meet  -the demands made upon it by the  smelting and industrial interests of  British Columbia, that any action  by the Nelson board of trade in  facilitating   the   diversion   of the  Fernie coal and   coke   to   United  States points/ is'iinwise. The members 'of   the   board   of  trade are  adults, and should be held responsible.   When through ignorance or  auy other cause- they compromise  their board they must expect' criticism, and   they  should be above  pleading that they did not know it  was loaded.  " very  " part.  In the Supreme Court.  With the hearing of evidence of  :two?witnesses arid the concluding  arguments of five lawyers the base  of Marino vs. Alexander, which has  been before the supreme court  for the past Ave days, was brought  to a close at 4 o'clock yesterday  afternoon. Mr. justice Irving' reserved-judgment, as some time is  required,;to consider the lengthy  evidence" given.  The case of J. M. Harris against  .11. II. Pitts, both of Sandon, which  is the last case on the docket, was  opened immediately at the close of  the other.   It appears that the contest in   this case arises out of a  street by the name of Reco, in the  town of Sandon, being obstructed.  Plaintiff Harris cameinto possession  of the land several years ago and  had   it   surveyed    into   lots   and  streets.   Defendant   Pitts, who is  mayor of Sandon, asserts that he  purchased the land from the company owning the Blue Jay mineral  claim, the   claim   being  the same  portion of the townsite now in dispute.   Pitts erected a building on  the land and apparently on the section'that was laid out for a street.  The .plaintiff is now asking that';  outside of   certain   damages,   Mr.  Pitts be made to vacate the property.         '  Boileau Gets Four Months.  The case of Frank Boileau, who'  was accused of theft, was disposed  of 'yesterday morning aud the  accused sentenced to four months'  imprisonment with hard labor.  Considerable evidence was taken  concerning the dresser which was  stolen by the prisoner, and as he  was proven guilty  he was given  ' three months for the offence. He  was, ��� immediately charged with  stealing a bull terrier from conductor D. McKay, to which' he  pleaded guilty. - For this he was  sentenced to one month, the same  to begin at. the expiration of the  first sentence. The prisoner is the  same party who was \ found -.guilty  of selling -liquor^at * Thirteen-mile  Point last" April, without .a -license  andvwas sentenced to'-four months.  -At the same time he was given two  months for doing 'a*-retail business  without a license.     . r -  >tt  ^TTtrrrrrrrrTj^yrrr__rrrmr_tivtf  Spikes and Ribbon Ends  Just in  a New Lot of  Spikes and .Ribbon Ends  Spikes from fi  5 Gents to 50 Cents        j  infTimmminiinamu; t  36 Baker Street  raxxxxxxzxxxxxxxxxccixxxxxxzxxxxxxxxxx:  LT  New Laces  and Embroideries  New Allover Laces  in White, Cream, Ecrne,  and Blacks* i  45c to $5 per Yard        [  XXZZXXZiXIIZSZXXXXZXXXXCUXZXT  SPRING AND SUMMER, 1901  The new Spring and Summer Goods are coming in every day.

MEALS  25  CENTS  Froji the- fuss which has been  made by a few of the miners over  the tax upon the output of the metalliferous mines, one might readily  form the opinion that tlie bulk of  the provincial revenues were raised  under this head. The public ac  counts, however, do not bear this  out. They show that all the great  wealth-producing mines of West  Kootenay contributed in taxes the  insignificant sum of $23,465.52. In  the light of the public accounts one  is at a loss to imagine how the disgruntled mine-managers propose to  show that they have been overtaxed in the increase of the output  tax to two per cent net. Will  they arrive at upon the basis of  the capitalization of their proper-  tie?, or upon the value of their output? In either case the showing  should be startling.  KOOTENAY....

'Morgan.  *     ?   ���"* . r '  * ��� John Pierpont Morgan is 04 years  old. -Andrew*Carnegie~is GO. -Mr.  Carnegie began a Working life on  art income of r20 cents a ,day. Mr.  Morgan started with" wealth at his  command./'Until-last week -Mr.  Carnegie controlled more iron and  steel thanaiiy other living ;man in  the world. 'Today Mr. Morgan is  to the financial institutions-of the  , United States-.what the'Rothschilds  are.to Europe���the key. Mr. Carnegie gives the public something  * oiit of his enormous,wealth by donating libraries to towns and cities.  Mr. Morgan ^presents money to hos-  ��� pitals and made the 'American side,  of the contest in tlie < last ^international yacht race. , Both men, are  superb types of ^the best _ that* the  money age can produce. ,Of their  class, their era, no finer, examples  can be found. What the industrial or cooperatives age'will do  with similar types later on is a  problem.  Mr. Morgan is supposed^to have  just purchased'$85,000,000 of Mr.  " Carnegie's iron and steel stock. ' If  this be true he now controls nearly  $700,000,000* of such - stockHu. the  -United States.^He has also recently-  purchased the Jersey Central 'road  aud engineered part of a deal 'for  the control of ,the Great Northern,  Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul,  Erie & Reading railroads under one  financial head. "If he' accomplished  these things .without the wealth of  Europe and the United States back  of .him he would be Titanic. Having,  though, entire treasuries -at his disposal, what he has accomplished As  not so remarkable. He is obliterating competition. 'As some one  wrote, "He is reducing the world  of finance and corporation industry  to a series of numbers which -may  be moved about as chessmen 'upon  a board." In his operations he is  not an individualist, but a" con-  centratist. He is as necessary to  tlie times as measles to a growing  child. His opportunity will pass  and the need for him, and when  death comes his wealth and power  cannot go with hint across the dark  river. His power and the means  which brought it to him are worthy  of the closest and most dispassionate study by sociologists.  Mr. Morgan's father was Junius  S. Morgan, a native of western Massachusetts, and an old-time Boston  merchant. The famous George Pea-  body admired his abilities' and invited him to engage in financial  business with him in London. Mr.  Morgan accepted. The son was  born and named Pierpont, after his  grandfather, a famous Unitarian  minister of Boston, who led the  anti-slavery cause there with Wendell Phillips and Garrison. His  business career began in New York  city, but was not successful until  he entered into partnership with  ,the noted Drexel:of Philadelphia,  and the firm became Drexel, Morgan  & Co. His New York and Philadelphia: houses were members of the j chain and looks more like a sporty |  syndicate which took the issue of  $200,000,000 of U per cent bonds  authorized for the purpose of taking up previous issues. The syndicate also took $25,000,000 of the 4  percent loan in 1877, and $10,000,-  000 of another 'issue of 4|s. Mr.  Morgan's astute management'" of  this government deal commended  him to other financiers. He made  a name.  Then he turned to railway management.   He had a great   many  ideas as to cut rates, traffic wars ,  and tlie like. /He. enunciated the'  doctrine that "competition is criminal when it destroys the interest  on investments.   Save the interest  and obliterate the other."   That is  the secret of all of Mr. Morgan's  advances.   He bends his energies to  preserving profits for investing capital.   Competition, wages, individuals that stand in the way of preserving interest and the stability of  the money market must be removed,  and he has proved that he knows  best of all his rivals how to' get  vexatious issues of this kind out of  the way of his golden, chariot. ���* He  created   the , "Interstate   Railway  Association" that, aiming to destroy  rate   wars,- strangled    to    death  through"- its own inside ^ treachery.  He also"- devised the "gentlemen's  agreement," which also might have  succeeded but for the fact that gentlemen of honor did not enter into  it.    His joint trafiic association was  'more-successful.^ He brought*the(  ^Pennsylvania-, road "ancl_ the New  York Central to friendly, terms, reorganized the West Shore, reorganized the Philadelphia & Reading*  'and would have'prevented the insolvency of "the Baltimore S�� Ohio'  road but for-the-violation of'one of  the agreements made with him by  outside'^parties. \. He also reorganized, the Chesapeake & Ohio and the  Northern Pacific and the Erie.  ���^In electricity^he brought 'about  ,the_formation. of ,the Edison company and the General Electric. Two  or three times his judgment and  coolness ~ have averted financial  panic in Wall street and distress  for all the moneyed interests of the  : country/ To say that .he represents  decontrols $800,000,000 of capital is  but, to admit that Avhat he~ may  control or direct is limitless. >By a  single act of his' he could precipitate a financial crisis'" that would"  .shake, the United States treasury to  its very foundations. He and his  interests can make or avert'war,  "and for that matter," if evilly in-|  clined, may overturn governments.  _Except_theZpower_of���j:the_Roths=L_  childs there is no' such example in  the worlds today (in or outside of  governments) as the concentrated  wealth power of John Pierpont  Morgan, s So he must individually  be a very honest man in * order to  always do right by his fellow men  and to act for the greatest good to  the greatest number. /In charity  he has given < $1,000,000 to the  Lying-in hospital of New York  city, $500,000* to the -New York  Trade School, $100,000 to St.  George's Episcopal School and  $150,000 to St. George's Memorial  House.  To those employed in his banking  house he is an autocrat, supreme,  inflexible; whose words form a law  that cannot be broken with impunity. To his friends he is a simple  and unaffected companion, whose  conversation, always entertaining,  sometimes abounds with the keenest  wit and the most rollicking humor.  To all members of the human race  with whom he is not acquainted or  in business relations he is about as  inaccessible as the czar of Russia.  He is popularly supposed to be  worth 'about $00,000,000 in his own  right. He is steadily opposed to  speculation. Finance to him is a  great science.  Whenever a corporation gets sick  Dr. Morgan is called in. He is the  one man whom Jay Gould feared,  and one of the few to whom the  Vanderbilts bow. He controls absolutely the tens of millions of  American securities held by wealthy  Englishmen and English corporations. He is gruff and emphatic in  speech. He is the worst man in  New York to try to interview. ^ He  ? believes in himself. 7vdBis:' desire, is  not for money, but for power./He  wears   loud clothes,, a big. watch  $2,600,000  S 1,700,000  H.

Armstrong, the engineer  in charge of the construction of the  bridge' 6ver' the river "at Robson,  was iu the city yesterday and reports the work  progressing well.  The east and west abutments have  been completed and piers No. 1 and  0,   which ^adjoin these,  have also  been finished.   The foundation for  the pier upon .which the pivotrwill  be placed,, being No. 4, has been  completed to the level of the water.  The caissons for piers Nos. 2 and 3  have been constructed" and  will be  sunk   into. '<pluce .with    concrete  within a few days.    The masonry  work is  also   getting along   well.  All the piles that will be required  to complete the work have been delivered. _"These will be used chiefly  in the construction of pier. No.  5,  and also ^for dolphins, to which a  schooner./will   be anchored, from  which the   masonry of   the deep  water'piers will be done.  Although  the water in the river is quite low,  it is expected that it.will drop at  least   another foot.     During low.  water the  work is, being concentrated on the mid-river piers, so as  ���to > raise - the    masonry   structure  above the;high water  mark.

Captain Troup, formerly superintendent   of the_C._P. R..for the.  Tiootenays,   aud -lately  appointed  manager of   the Canadian^ Pacific  Navigation Company,J with head-  , quarters  at .��� Vancouver,, returned <  from the east last evening, where  he has been for the' past two weeks.  In speaking of his appointment he  said that he was well satisfied and  would probably leave''Sunday, or  Monday next to take charge'of his  new   duties. ���.- Captain Troup has  beeu in the service of the company  here'for the past-eight years'and  regrets leaving the many'friends he  has made during his stay,,.   About  twenty years ago'h,e was employed  as captain by the Canadian Pacific  Navigation Company,- -which   ha*  lately been purchased by'the C.P.B,  The  experience .he received then  will be of service to him -now.    In  speaking of the east captain Troup  said that he found   the   railroad  companies   decidedly    busy    and  heavy traffic was quite noticeable.  During   his   trip   he  visited New  York, Boston, St. John and other  eastern cities.  tlie Tremont hotel as a cook. For  some reason this organization fell  to pieces, but recently it'was reorganized, and Snell yesterday applied for a membership card. His  application was refused, and as near-  as can be ascertained the refusal  .was upon the ground that he is a  black man. As one who was under  the impression that ,the Cooks' and  Waiters' Union was organized for  the purpose of keeping up wages  aucl for driving out'Chinese cooks  and helpers, I think that some explanation, is due from the officers of  the Cooks' and Waiters' Union for  their refusal to grant a membership  card to John Snell.  - - C.
