 DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION  BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  NINTH YEAR  THE TRIBUNE: NELSON B. C. MONDAY, MARCH 18, 1901  PRICE FIVE CENTS  DUKE OF CORNWALL SAILS  STATELY   LEAVE   TAKING   WITNESSED BY THOUSANDS.  The  Friction   Between   England  and  Russia Over Tien Tsin Affairs.  Ministers Criticized.  New   York,   Marcli   17.���In   a  special cable  dispatch  dated London, 1 a.ni., I. N. Ford,  correspondent of the New York Tribune, says:  The   Ophir   started   for Gibraltar  yesterday   under   escort    of   two  *-cruisers from  Spithead.    It  was  a  murky day  with  a nipping wind,  but tlie royal  functions  wore  conducted   without   regard   to    the  threatening    weather.     The   blue  jackets who took charge of the unmanageable horses at Windsor were  called for the special service. Bands  played   the   national anthem  and  salutes were fired.     Tho king and  family had luncheon on the  Ophir,  Mrs.    Chamberlain    aud    husband  being among   the   invited   guests."  At   4   o'clock  tho  Ophir   weighed  anchor   and steamed down Portsmouth    harbor   preceded   by    the  royal. yacht   and   followed   by   a  flotilla of torpedo boat  destroyers.  The  men  of war  and  shipping in  the harbor were as gay as rainbow  bunting could make them and royal  salutes boomed from  the  fortifications and fleet. It was a picturesque  scene and witnessed by  thousands  of spectators on, shore.    Tho duke  of Cornwall's flag was hoisted when  tho royal yacht turned about and  handkerchiefs were Avaved from the  decks   and   bridges   of    the    two  vessels.   The duke was a prominent  iigure on the hurricane deck of the  Ophir as she stood out to sea with  her consorts, the Diadem and Niobe,  -while-the" royal yacht" headed by  the torpedo flotilla returned  to  its  anchorage in Portsmouth, tho  fleet  being manned and salutes  fired as  she passed.    It was a. stately leave  taking   and   a   brilliant " imperial  function.  The Tien Tsin Incident.  The war office is silent respecting  tho occupation of the railway siding  at Tien Tsin by Russian troops  aftor Indian sentries had been protecting tlie workmen. Some excited  journals deal with it as another  Penjadlie with an imminent risk of  collisioh.lbetween the Russian and  British troops, but it is probable  that the affair will be settled by  diplomatic means after protests  have been exchanged between the  military commanders. The siding  is claimed as-territory within the  Russian concession and has been  occupied, although the North China  =RSilwlfy^lftims^tliat^it^lias~���clear  proprietary rights. If general  Barrow does not act rashly, the  two governments will succeed in  settling the dispute, although the  situation is fraught with danger.  Tho Anglo-German agreement may  not include Manchuria, but it  probably has sufficient potentiality  to cover the disputed railway siding  at Tien Tsin. The stock markets  were depressed yesterday by the  unfortunate affair.  Kitchener's Terms Unknown.  There is no official account of the  terms offered by general Kitchener  to general Botha. Various versions  have been printed, one of which involves largo and unexpected political concessions to the Boers. lam  informed on high authority that  the British government has not  sanctioned any arrangement by  which the Boers will regain potential rights at the outset or. receive  financial grants. The war news remains meager, the most important  being the captures of. Erasmus,  one of the most irritable of the  Boer leaders near Lydenburg.  Criticism of the Ministry.  �� The ministers have cause for  gratitude to the political managers  who brought on the election last  autumn. They are entrenched in  the strongholds of power and need  not dread the storm of criticism to  which they are exposed with every  shifting wind. They ..are not in  touch with public opinion on many  questions, but with their immense  majority in the commons they are  safe. One disclosure of divided  council and irresponsibility follows  another and tlie Unionist party  lacks  direction   of  supreme   will.  ���Lord Salisbury is tired out aud Balfour is inert. If the Liberals were  united under a strong leadership  they could harass the government  with destructive criticism. Even  when rent into factions they succeed in carrying on formidable guerrilla warfare. The Unionist coalition has always stood for imperial  defence, but it is on this ground  that it is now vulnerable.  The nation, after paying war  taxes in a time of peace, now finds  that its investments in sea power  and military ai'maments have been  reckless "and that much money  has been wasted. William Allen,  an old blo^bg/l^ runner in the  American t^^^^SK^g^has been  ridiculedfo^^^^^ed  fight m the commo"a^/i>i|��||iohe  water tube boilers in the nli'v^Wiow  has the full support in the ad  interim report of the boiler committee, and shipowners are exulting  with him. If their inferences are  correct an enormous amount of  money has been wasted on the  navy, but it is" clearly premature to  condemn all water tube boilers  until the admiralty completes the  trials and experiments with cylindrical boilers.  LANSOOWNE-WOLSELEY TILT  GENERALLY   CONSIDERED   AS A  PUBLIC SCANDAL.  King Edward is Making  in His Conduct of  Affairs.  No Mistake  Court  Development on the Blue Bell.  Phoenix, March 17.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���J.. P. Watts of Maple  Grove, Wisconsin, secretary-treasurer of the Lake Shore and B. C.  Copper,. Mining Development Company, was a visitor here for the  first time yesterday. This is the  -company that has now under bond  for $67,000 and is actively developing the Blue Bell and J. S. claims  near the B. C. mine, Summit Camp.  Mr. Watts came out especially, to  see the property and arrange for  equipping the same with machinery  to more expeditiously carry on development. He informed your correspondent that as soon as the main  shaft on the Blue Bell reached the  100 or 125 foot level and some drifting was done a compressor .and  other machinery would be installed.  At present the shaft is down nearly  90 feet, all - in ore, there being  six feet at the. bottom.';. Some 35-  feet of drifting has "been done,  which is also in ore. Mr. Watts is  much pleased with the appearance  of the property in general and  states that all the capital needed  for its development is ready and  waiting. The Blue Bell adjoins the  Mountain View, which adjoins the  well known B. C. mine, whicli has  shipped over 000 tons of oro since  January 1st.  Athalstan Again Shipping.  Phoenix, March 17.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���Beginning tomorrow  the Athalstan mine, three miles  east of Phoenix in Wellington  camp, will rejoin the list of  Boundary shippers, arrangements  having been made to ship three  cars, from 75 to 100 tons dailyi for  the present. This ore will -go to  tho Standard Pyritic Smelter Company's new reducing works at  ^ounclaly^FallsTiow^b^ut^to3^^  blown in, a contract to this effect  having been made with manager  Andrew Laidlaw of the smelting  company. This is the first shipment from Wellington camp to go  to the new smelter and it is understood that the shipment will be  kept up till 1500 to 2000 tons have  been sent out. Last summer and  fall the -Athalstan shipped about  1200 tons . of ore to the Trail  smelter, paying the necessary long  haul charge. The new rate quoted  by local smelters will affect largely  the management of the mine. A  well-known contractor is now at  work hauling Athalstan ore to the  Winnipeg spur. At present advantage is being taken of the snow,  which can be utilized for a time yet  before the spriug breaks up.  Callahan's Trial,  Omaha, March 17.���Judge Baker  yesterday overruled the motion  filed by the attorneys for James  Callahan, charged with kidnaping  ih procuring the abduction of Edward Cudahy, jr., in which he  sought - to delay his trial. The  motion was supported by an affidavit in which Callahan declared  the presence of Pat Crowe was  necessary for him- to prove an alibi.  It is now expected the case will  come to trial next Monday.  Author and Preacher Dead.  Hari'Swell, Maine, March 17.���  Rev. Elijah Kellogg, author and  preacher, whose fame rested on his  books for boys and his composition  "Spartacus to the Gladiators,"  which nearly every schoolboy has  learned at some time, died at  his home of bronchial pneumonia,  in his 88 th year.  London, March 17.���Mr. Brod-  erick's reorganization scheme has  been roughly handled by sir Henry  Campbell Bannerman, sir William  Vernon Harcourt and sir Charles  Dilke in the house of commons, and  there is a growing feeling of irritation over what is clearly a paper  scheme of defence''' with every  aspect of artificiality. While the  trend of that scheme towards compulsory service is unmistakeable.  there is a practical argument  against it on many lips, namely,  that one man under canvas is  worth ten estimates. The upper  house, moreover, has a complete  exposure of the divided councils at  military headquarters at the outbreak of the Boer war, while in the  commons there is cumulative, proof  of the existence of cabals aud factions in the army. The -ministers  are . daily losing ground as the  melancholy exhibitions of irresponsibility continue.  Sam Bourne hits off the political  situation well in Punch by portraying John Bull iu the act of strapping a knapsack labeled "Responsibility" upon the back of Mr. Broderick and warning him against trying  to shift it to the shoulders of anybody else.  The Colville case, which is constantly  bobbing' up,   reflects   the  spirit of intrigue and jealousy now  rampant in the British army.   Last,  night the fact was clearly brought  to light.that .general Colville was  sent.to Gibraltar by lord Wolseley  after Roberts' report of his misconduct on the  two  occasions was on  file at headquarters.   On Monday  an attempt will be made to prove  that general Colville  did not receive the orders from lord Roberts  before the Lindley affair because  some   staff   officers  blundered   by  misdirecting them and delivering  them   to   the  wrong   commander.  While the partisans of lord Wolseley and lord Roberts are skirmishing with deadly effect the second  round of the Lansdowne-Wolseley  duel has been fought in the presence of two long rows of peeresses  iu deep mourning and diamonds.  The mixture of animosity between  the two chiefs who were responsible for the defence of the empire  is deplored by all judicious observers as a public scandal.    If lord  Lansdowne had a decided advan-  which is considering the civil list  ciiused much annoyance both at  court and in Downing street.  The Times is represented in parliament by a very able man named  Pitt, who succeeded iu getting important information showing that  the expenditures in the court would  be greatly enlarged. There has  been talk of disciplining him in  some drastic manner, but there is  no likelihood of his being imprisoned in the tower. The Times  is too powerful a journal for the  speaker to put its^old parliamentary  hand in the dock and force him to  tell which member) of the committee gave him tholibest news of  the day. One Of the; inost interesting court rumors is'not yet confirmed, this is the report that the  king and queen, Avhen the period of  mourning is over willgive a dinner  party each week at Buckingham  palace followed by a dance for girls  and boys. This would be a revival  of the fashion of the second Empire  and it would delight the smart  society.  Li Hung Chang's Health.  Pekin, March 17.���The health of  Li Hung Chang is again a matter of  grave consideration to the ministers  of the powers. Mr. Rockhill, the  American special commissioner,  who visited earl Ei yesterday, says  he is a physical wreck and apparently in a state of utter collapse,  although mentally as bright as  ever. Mr. Rockhill would not be  surprised to hear of his death at  any moment.  CONSIGNED TO THE TOMB  BURIAL     YESTERDAY     OF    EX-  PRESIDENT   HARRISON.  Fifteen Thousand of His Fellow Citizens  Surround the Grave���Many  Expressions of Grief.  .back, and asked, "Are you badly  hurt, old man ?' Observing I was  injured he grabbed up tho flag and  started forward ou the run, ordering two men to carry me to cover.  I saw Liscum fall just as the men  picked me up. While we were  going toward shelter one of my  bearers was killed aud the other  shot in the head. All day long I  lay out in the hot sun beside major  Regan, and at night they took us  both off the field."  AN EXPLOSION ABOARD SHIP  AMMONIA  TANK   BURSTS   WITH  DISASTROUS EFFECT.  Firemen Injured.  Pittsburg, March 17.���During  the progress of a fire today at the  corner of Duquesne Way and Fort  street one mau lost his life and two  others were badly injured. The  property loss will be fully $250,000;  well insured. William Miller, the  driver,,was killed, and George Snyder, hoseman; Harry Griffith, lad-  derman;. and H. E. Scheckler, hose-  man, were injured. All the injured  men will recover.  ~tage in the second exchange of  shots, lord Rosebery, as lord Wolse-  ley's second, covered his retirement  with a fine flourish of trumpets.  Empires aro not governed in this  way.  The court is now under much  better management than the  Unionist government. No mistakes  are made by the king, and his popularity, increases daily. Today he  is speeding his son on a voyage  around tho world, with a mission of  good will and respect, for the loyal  colonies. The weatlier has been unfavorable fpr. a pageant at Portsmouth, but good judgment has  been displayed in all arrangements.  The king and Mr. Joseph Chamberlain know that .imperialism is the  strongest and most popular issue  now before the English people. The  king will receive the diplomatic  body on Monday aiid distribute  decorations at a special investiga-  ture and will reply to the addresses  of a large number of delegations  later in the week.  Men are saying that the royal  escorts of cavalry seem to move  through the streets more rapidly  than formerly. This is true. The  king will hot be outdone by the  German emperor, whose cavalry  dash by at a gallop and he has put  fresh spirit into the household  cavalry. He also keeps all officials  and clerks up to to their work who  under the last reign did little but  draw their salaiies in advance.  They are now expected to report  for duty daily. The king's talent  for details, his remarkable memory  and his habit of deciding matters  quickly are coming into play in the  business of the reigning. The premature disclosure of confidential  estimates made for the committee  KILLED BY A FQX TERRIER  Woman Meets Shocking Death.  New York, March 17.���Mis. Carrie Cobus,living on West Eighteenth  street, met death in a shocking  manner tonight, she being killed by  her dog, a fox terrier of unusual intelligence. Mrs. Brodhead, Mrs.  Cobus' mother, says her daughter  went into the kitchen a few minutes after seven o'clock. A few  minutes later she heard ^ the dog  barking excitedly. The mother ran  out and found her daughter lying  on the floor. She knew it was an  epileptic attack and screamed for  help. Philip Rockefeller, living in  a third floor flat, heard her and ran  to her assistance. : When they  went into the room where Mrs.  Cobus^layL^theyL_saw_ a spectacle  which almost froze their blood.  The pet terrier, seeing its mistress  in agony, appears to have gone  mad. He flew ac the prostrate  woman as she writhed on the floor  and repeatedly attacked her, burying its teeth in her throat and  severing tho jugular vein. When  Rockefeller tried to tear the dog  away it clung to the >dyiug woman  with terrible tenacity.- Rockefeller  finally got the animal loose. A  physician was brought; but it was  too late; Mrs. Cobus had bled to  death.  A Canadian Cable.  London, March 17.���The Daily  Mail publishes an interview with  Mr. William Muloek, the Canadian  postmaster-general, regarding his  cable project of a direct and exclusive connection between England  and Canada at half the present  rates. Mr. Muloek explains that he  has in view tho development of  Anglo-Canadian commerce and asserts that, "tho high 'American  tariff almost prohibits any profitable trade with the United States  for Canadian exports."  Cabinet Crisis at Seoul. -  Yokohama, March 17.~Tho cabi-  Jiet crisis at Seoul, capital of Korea,  which arose out of the arrest of the  acting minister of finance on a charge  of having plotted to murder a number of the ladies of the imperial  household, continues.  Threaten Reprisals.  St. Petersburg, March 17.���The  official organ of the Russian minister  of finance today threatens that  Russia will make strict reprisals in  case of any raising, of duties by  Germany on Russian products.  Indianapolis, Indiana, March 17.  ���Surrounded by fully 15,000 of his  fellow citizens the remains of Ben-  ������ - ,-       .       ���.-.)'-  jamin Harrison were this afternoon  interred in the family lot in Crown-  hill cemetry.   Close by the grave  were the members of his family,  president McKinley and other visitors of distinction, and the more  intimate friends of general Harrison.   Back a distance of fifty yards,  behind ropes, guarded zealously by  a large force of police stood with  uncovered heads  the great multitude who knew him not so well as_  they who stood beside the freshly  upturned earth, but who honored  him and admired him quite as much.  Ifc is doubtful, if any public man, at  least in this generation, has been  borne to his last resting place amid  so many manifestations of respect.  Of passionate grief there was little  outside the members of his family,  but the tribute of respect was universal.    There   was   no   exception  anywhere to the expression  that  the nation had lost one of its ablest  men and the greatest man of his  generation   in   his own state.   By  tlie grave stood  the   chief magis-"  trate of the nation and behind the  ropes tbe street arabs of general  Harrison's city.  Every grade, of human life in.  America between the two was  represented in the "crowd and  among them all there was but* the*  one feeling'that a man had'.died  who was-honest'. at::all--times ..witli  himself and with others ahcT whose"  ability and character were such as  the nation could ill afford to lose.  The weather was like that of yesterday. The services at- the church  and grave were simple in the extreme, all in most excellent taste,  and like the proceedings of yesterday there was an utter absence of  friction in everything tliat was  done. AU Avas well ordered and  well performed. At the Harrison  home before the remains were taken  to the First Presbyterian church,  where the full service was held,  there was brief exercises for the  members of the family and the  intimate friends . of tho general.  Possibly 150 people were present;  Mrs. Harrison did not appear, but  remained in her room until it was  time to leave for the church.  President McKinley accompanied  by=gO-vernor=Durbin^called~at=itlie=  house at about 1 o'clock. At about  the same time came the members of  president Harrison's cabinet and  others continually arrived until the  short services were over.  Hanged a Negro.  Nashville, Tennessee, March 17.  ���At Tiptonville, in Lake county,  last night a mob hanged Ike Fitzgerald, a negro, to a tree near the  courthouse. Tho negro was chargeel  with assault on a white girl, Miss  Dayton Port, 20 years old, and a  trial jury had just reported that  they could not agree and had boon  discharged. A different verdict  had been expected and the mob  seized the prisoner before the sheriff  could hurry   hiin from  the ..court  room.        _^__  How Colonel Liscum Died.    -  San Francisco, March-17".���The  man who passed the flag to gallant  colonel Liscum on the walls of Tien-  Tsiu, when the latter officer met his  death, has been discovered. He is  sergeant Edward Gorman of the  Ninth infantry, and he lies on a  bed of pain at the Presidio hospital  today in a serious condition���torn  and slashed as he is by shot and  saber. Gorman tells an interesting  story. He was color sergeant of  the brave old Ninth, he states, when  he fell at tho battle of Tien-Tsin,  badly wounded. -Colonel Liscum  grasped the colors and pressed on  with them, only to fall mortally  wounded a few minutes later.  " I thought a house had fallen on  me when I was struck,'.' said .Gorman Saturday. "A bullet entered  my left knee, another my thigh  and another cut a furrow across  my stomach. Colonel Liscum, who  was a few feet ahead of me, came  An Epoch iu Philanthropy.  New York, March 17.���Discussing the conditional offer of Au-  drew. Carnegie to give $5,200,000  for a system of public libraries in  New York city, bishop Potter is  quoted in the World as saying:  '���Mr. Carnegie must be credited  with having performed a most  noble deed in making such an offer  to the city. The least the city can  do is to provide the sites for the  proposed branch libraries. It is by  'such deeds as this by Mr. Carnegie  that a nation is uplifted."  Seth Low: "Such a stupendous  and magnificent gift marks an epoch  in philanthropy."  . E. W. Shepard: "Mr. Carnegie's  gifts go far toward relieving that  difficult problem ��� how the rich  man can give money without corrupting the recipient. The requirement of self denying co-operation  by the beneficiary seems to me the  most admirable feature of these  marvelous and noble gifts."  Dr. C. II. Parkhurst: "This is a  fine specimen of judicious magnificence."'"  Germany Kicks.  -New York, March 17.���fA special  to   the   Times   from   Washington  says:  The arrangement by which  the sultan  of Turkey was to pay  his debts to the United States under   cover   of   the  purchase of a  cruiser from tho Cramps  has fallen  through.   The Cramps have not begun work  on the Turkish cruiser,  -and  Avill not  do  so.      The t prime  cause of the failure of the device so,  ingeniously contrived by the sultan  was the shrewd move  of Germany,  ; recorded   in  European   dispatches'  last December.    Germany was  determined   that   if   the    American  claims were paid hers   should be  paid as well.    It was impossible to  assume      that       the       American  claims would be paid, for the sultan  had so cleverly contrived  the payment that he would be able to reply  to  Germany that  ho  was  merely  buying a warship and was not paying   any   debts.    Germany,   therefore, flanked the sultan by  making  heivdemand, not for  the  payment  of an indemnity, but  for the payment of a bill owed  to  the Krupp  concern   for     armor    before    she  bought any more war material. This  move of Germany, ifc is now learned,  has   been    completely    successful.  The sultan   was   able   to  pretend  that he was nofc going  to pny the  American indemnity, but he  could  not_prctend���thafc ���he    was n o fc_  negotiating with the Cramps for a  ship.

Chicago, March 17. ��� George  Hunt, attorney general of the state  of Illinois from 1S84 to 1802 and a  veteran of the civil war, died today  at his home in Riverside.  Boer Losses.  Pretoria, March 17.���The prospects of peace are still considered  hopeful. The Boer losses last month  were 1(50 killed, 400 wounded-' and  1000 captured and surrendered.

Montreal, March 17.���A deputation of St. John, New Brunswick,  people passed through here today  en route to Ofcfcawa to request the  minister of marine not to bring the  act prohibiting dock loads into  force.  Tho  hcr-  a  New    York,    March   17. --  steamship New York  reached  dock at 10 o'clock tonight after  passage in which an explosion of an  ammonia tank and a  broken  shaft  caused loss of life and much damage to the  vessel.    As  a  result^ of  the   explosion   fifteen    men    wero  overcome by the fumes of ammonia  on Thursday morning  last aud so  seriously prostrated that two deaths  followed.   Both were buried at sea.  Several others were confined to the  ship's hospital for some time and  one was still in tho hospital  when  docked and will be transferred to a  hospital here.   The dead are John  Kent, a steward of the vessel,  who  died of  pneumonia  30 hours after!  the accident, and Carl Engkvist, an  American  citizen a   steerage  passenger, whose address was unknown.  F.  F.  Colston,  a  cabin steward is  still suffering from inflammation of  the   lungs   and   was   taken   to   a  hospital.  Accordingjto a statement  made  by superintendent James A.

THE  HUDSON'S  BAY  STORES  ��|te ��tifrrote*  The best article that has so far.  \ appeared on the fuel and railway-  situation in East Kootenay is contained in the last issue of the British Columbia Mining Review. It is  republished on the third page of  ' this issue.    * Th is royal commission appointed  to enquire into the effect of Chinese  ' and Japanese immigration into this  ��� ijrovince has begun its work in Victoria, arid when the commissioners'  report is finally submitted the  people of the East will be able to;  arrive" at a fairly accurate idea of  what competition with Chinese and  Japanese really means. In opening  the    investigation,     commissioner  Clute said au effort would-be made7  to keep the  two Oriental nation-  |  alities separate.    This circumstance  i may  be taken to mean that the  '. government   is prepared   to  com-  ' promise with the labor party, even  |j,^f'"t to   the   extent   of   excluding   the  i Chinese, something which even the  most ardent labor  champions  did  not   expect   in    the   case   of   the  < Japanese.  Although the bachelors of the  province may disclaim any responsibility for the growth of the  educational expenditures of the  province, they must take their  medicine, in the form of the increased school tax, just the same as  the benedicts. Taxation is levied  for the purpose of raising money,  and is generally framed with a  - view to getting at those who are  the easiest to reach. For this  reason the responsibility of the  bachelors for the growth of educational expenditures will doubtless  receive less consideration from the  government than their ability to  pay. Indeed the suggestion has  already been made that in the case  of bachelors the education tax  should be fixed at $10 instead of $5.  It is to be hoped that the story  is true, that the American salmon  ��� canners are smuggling boatloads  of Chinese into the state of Washington     from    British    Columbia.  '   This story comes from the Chinese  ��� Jabor contractors, who ^from yoai* j  to 3 ear furnish the   Fraser river  canneries with their Chinese help.  This   year   they    are    demanding  double prices for Chinese laborers,  and the excuse which they offer is  that   the   American canners have  bjen smuggling great numbers of  Chinese   across   the   boundary   to  woi k in their ciuneries.   This condition of affairs may be unwelcome  to the few men who absorb all  the  profit from the wealth of the British Columbia salmon fishery, but it  should occasion the people of the  province little concern.   An industry which cannot afford   employment   to white labor,   aud which  through its operation assails   the  white laborers of tho province engaged in overy other industry, need  not   expect    much    consideration.  During the salmon run  some 4000  Chinese find employment in putting  up fish in the Fraser   river  canneries; and in the actual taking of  the fish in the river Japanese have  to a very great extent supplanted  white fishermen.    When the fishing  season   closes   this great army of  Orientals is turned loose to debauch  the other labor" markets; and   the  only advantage the   province   receives for maintaining its fish preserve is in the sale of such food  stuffs as are consumed during  the  short operating season.  This is an off year for government by deputation. For the past  week the government has been assailed by deputations , from all  quarters of theprovince, who hoped  by their numbers and their oratory  to shape the government's railway  policy; but they have accomplished  nothing. Even the elaborate  scheme of the Hill combine, which  involved the manipulation of the  boards of trade of the interior, has  failed. The government, realizing  no doubt the job which was put  up on it, declined to show its hand,  with the result that the membei s  of this very influential delegation,  or somebody else, are out considei -  able in the way of expenses. Tie  raid of the V., V. & E. promoters  on the provincial treasury for one  million dollars in aid of the Coast  to Boundary railway scheme has  also failed. Hereafter it will stand  "deputations" in hand to mail their  "views" to the government, and  allow the members of the legislature- to exercise that discretion  which the electors who returned  them expect them to exercise.  It is not of ten the Miner scoops  The Tribune in news matter, but  when it does this paper is free to  acknowledge its own delinquency  and   the   Miner's enterprise.   One  of these-instances occurred yesterday    morning,    when    the   Ward  street  publication   announced the  early establishment of a refinery at  ^some^point-iu^the^Kootenays, pre^  sumably  at   Nelson.     It  appears  that the gentleman who is prime  mover   in   this enterprise is E. J.  McKay, who represents a syndicate  that is casting  coquettish glances  at the silver-lead mining industry,  and   only   awaiting   sufficient encouragement to embark in an enterprise that means much to British  Columbia    in     general   and    the  Kootenays in particular.   Mr. McKay is described as a mining man  by the Miner; but to his friends he  is known as " Ed " McKay, traveler  for a tobacco house, and a "josher,"  even when the victim of his jest  may be an unsophisticated reporter.  No doubt "Ed"   enjoys   the   joke  quite   as   well   as   his    numerous  friends in Nelson; but it must be  confessed that refineries   are   not  built that way.  The announcement that the provincial legislature will lay the  Crow's Nest Southern railway bill  over until a royal commission can  inquire into the probable effect of  granting such a charter will be received with general satisfaction.  Indeed, it is difficult to see what  other course was open to the members of the legislature. They naturally are opposed to restricting the  railway facilities of the province,  but before all applications for railway charters they must put the  general welfare of the province.  So long as the charter from the coal  fields to the boundary is held in i  abeyance the government of the  province has. power to help itself,  but once the charter is granted and  the Hill railway constructed it is  Mr. Hill who shall determine the  destiny of the province and not its  government.

If we now examine the four main  factors in.the questions of smelters  and  fuel  in British  Columbia, the  Canadian Pacific Railway Company,  the American Smelting  and Refining Company, the  Great Northern  Railway Company and the Crow's  Nest Pass  Coal Company, we find  that in the case of not one of them  is free commercial competition adequate to  protect the public interest.    The Canadian Pacific,Railway  Company is an internal transportation  monopoly.      Its monopoly  is  not perfect in all places, certainly,  but so far as regards the  interests  at present concerned it is  perfect.  The American Smelting and Refining Company is an external industrial monopoly of the completest  and most perfect kind.    The Great  Northern Railway Company is  an  integral part of a monopoly, which  i.-. controls  all  the present available  supplies of fuel for the mining and  smelting industries iu  British  Columbia.   It is necessary to premise  that ' although   a   monopoly. may  give rise to the gravest abuses, it is  ��� not iu itself an evil.    Onr postoffice  system, for instance, is  a  complete  and perfect monopoly.    Its, cost is  much less ��� and .its operation more  pei feet thanib'would be under any  ..system.,   of    "competition     whicli  could be devised.     There is probably as much complaint about the  operation of the post office: monopoly in many places, as there is  about the operation of ��� the C. P. R.  monopoly, and doubtless the complaints are often justified in  both  cases.    Yet no'one'would dream of  advocating a competitive post oilice  as a remedy for existing abuses ih  tho service.    "Why should so. many  people     consider     railway     competition a remedy for abuses iiirail-;  way service ? ��� The obvious remedy  is control of the rates arid service.  This is possessed and exercised in  the case of the post oflice and its  ^effieiencyHs^recognizedr^It^is^not-  possessed   iu the case of the railway company and competition is  frequently set up as an alternative  and superioivremedy.    Of course a  distinction must here be dnuvn between railways owned by separate  companies in separate spheres  of  influence, and railways owned  by  separate companies in   the   same  sphere   of   influence, where alone  there is real competition. Tlie fixed  charges of operating two  railway  systems  are   vastly- greater than  those of operating one and the interest on capital invested is  twice  as great.   Where the government  bonuses a competitive road in Order  to reduce rates and improve'service,  the purpose is.effected at an enormously increased total cost of transportation and this must come out  of the rates or out of the taxes.  Such      a      policy     is     perfectly  futile     as      a     means      of      affording    any    relief    from    evils  which may be present in a transportation monopoly.   The obvious  remedy   is   strict   legislative   control     such      as      exercised      by  the     board   of    trade   in   Great  Britain, or in the last resort the  nationalization of the monopoly in  question.   In many, instances there  are   grave practical objections to  this, and until /public sentiment is  sufficiently enlightened to  prevent  the nationalization of railroads in  Canada meaning their control by a  political party for party purposes  the less we hear about it the better  in the interests of the country, f To  secure the greatest real economy^in  transportation a monopolistic system is the best; while to prevent  the   grave   abuses   which   cluster  around a monopoly exercised in the  selfish   interests  of a corporation  the powers of legislation should be  ample.  There is no great advantage to  be gained,  however,  in regulating  an internal monopoly by legislation  in the interest of the industries of  mining   and   smelting     if    these  industries are to be left at the mercy  of an external monopoly over which  we   possessno   legislative control  whatever, /^t   has   been   charged  that a definite scheme is on foot to  make   the  silver-lead   industry  of  the province tributary to the American Smelting and  Refining Trust,  an event not less injurious to the  national   development   of   Canada  than the annexation of Canadian  territory to the United States. The  American   Smelting   .and Refining  Company   claims   to    control   the  mining industry of British Columbia  now; and its policy has been  outlined as the control of the silver-  lead markets of the worlds.   The  interests   of   the   Great  Northern  Railway    as     a      transportation  company are naturally bound up  with the interests of the American  Smelting and Refining Company as  an   industrial   monopoly.      If   ah  iudependentsmelbingandrefiningin-  dustryisbuiltup inBritishColumbia  then the main system of the Great  Northern railway can benefit but  little in the transportation of ore.  The oro, however, must follow the  coal.    Tf, therefore, the Great Nor:  thern railway could acquire control  of the coal supply and draw that  into the United States chin nels of  trade it is then in a position to  draw the ore after it and ��� secure a  certain amonnt.of business  it  is in  danger "of losing.   When.we consider   the   natural   policy-  of .the.  American    Smelting  -&    Refining  Company, by which it  means to  carry out its intention "of controlling  the silver and lead markets of the  world, we see at once how a  very  obvious,  if somewhat nearsighted  maneuver,   is 'to   discourage    the  mining of silver and lead in British  Columbia. Jj To control an industry  is to fix tne price of the product  paid   by   the consumer.     Such a  monopoly as the American  Smelting and Refining Company is in a  position to arbitrarily decrease the  profits of the producer and just as  arbitrarily increase' the   contributions of.the consumer. . In order to  fulfil its purpose the possibilities of  production*inust be limited by the  necessities of the monopoly, not by  the opportunities, of  the ; market..  The silver-lead resources of British  Columbia \ are   the'/greatest    of  any     portion      of     the1    world.  They      are      sufficiently      great,  Hh at^^is^to^^sayr^sil vei,!r==and=  lead can be produced so cheaply in  British Columbia, as to make it impossible   for   any   combination to  control the silver and lead market  unless the silver and lead industry  ' of this province is also .under . the  thumb  of the combination.     The  easiest way to do this would apparently be to "place disabilities in  theway of.the production of.silver  and lead in  British Columbia,  to  ��� say  in 'eftecfr "the province shall  produce just what we shall permit  it to produce and no more."     This  polidy", be it granted, is near-sighted  and   therefore  mistaken, but the  mistake is a natural one, because  (the capitalists of the United States  erroneously place  the commercial  and   industrial   initiative  of   this  1 country on the same level as they  do those of Mexico./ As we never  have done anything for ourselves  they jump not unnaturally to the  conclusion that we never shall.  What now are the facts with  which we have to deal ? Cdincidently  with the completion of the American Smelting & Refining Company  as an industrial monopoly, Ave find  the Great Northern Railway Company endeavoring to obtain control  of the management and output of  the Crow's Nest Pass Coal fields, not  merely of the mines owned by  the Crow's Nest Pass Coal Company,  but of all the other undeveloped  coal lands in that neighborhood.  We also find the American Smelting & Refining Company raising  tlie values upon the producers  of silver aud lead in British Columbia; and lest this should merely  lead to the establishment of lead  smelters in the country itself correspondingly raising the rates on  the refining of lead bullion.

C=3�� c=3>c=3*c3<  '<^*<^*C=?>03  1901  Year of tfje Twentieth Century  'IjRT  things are not susceptible pf auy  explanation, save one, namely, that  the interests of the Great Northern  railway and of the American smelting and refining industry,  are  not  identical with the interests of the  mining and smelting industries of  British, Columbia.,  It is not necessary to accuse these corporations  _of   any   calculated   iralignity   towards British Columbia.   They are  merely carrying out a line of policy  which they conceive to be the best  for their own interests, which do  not happen to coincide with our  advantage   at   the   present   time.  They   are   neither   more   nor less  selfish than our own transportation  and   industrial   monopolies.   (But  while our own monopolies may be  controlled    by    legislation,   when  likely to militate against the public  good   a    foreign    monopoly    cannot be so controlled. Wheir action,  however," upon our-resources and  upon our industries may aud  must  be regulated by a fiscal policy which  will prevent Canada from remaining a hewer of wood and drawer of  water   to   industry    located    and  ^centralized   in the   United States)  (Industrial independence   must   be  the watchword of Canada; and the  earliest manifestation of an industrial independence will be found in  delivering   the country absolutely  and eternally from the .control of  any foreign industrial monopoly like  the American Smelting and Refining  Company, j This   cannot   be done  satisfactorily .or   permanently   by  preventing commercial intercourse  with the United States.    But it can  be'done and it must be d me by a  fiscal   policy,   which    will   enable  Canada to, go into the business of  refining   lead and ' silver for itself.  Do';we   not   possess   all   the  raw  materials, all the   accessibilits'- to  the world's markets which are required ?   Must   we   arrive .at  the  melancholy   conclusion that what  we lack is the industrial initiative  necessary   to enable us to utilize  our own resources and advantage  to their fullest capacity ?

It is not often that the caleudar-  makers have the opportunity of  putting St. Patrick's day down for  Sunday, but this has been their  privilege on'the first 17th of Ireland  which the new century has seen.  Yesterday the green was so conspicuously in evidence in Nelson  that there was no mistaking the  occasion. Shamrocks, real or artificial, did good, service, and- where  these were not seen a bit .of green  ribbon was called into requisition.  It is no exaggeration to say that  the good saint was duly honored ih  the capital of the Kootenays.  The   history   of   St.   Patrick   is  somewhat shrouded in mystery, but  of late years many of the points in  dispute are being, cleared up.   For  instance, at no very' remote date  there were two distinct factions in  the land of his adoption or the land  bf his birth, as differing historians  would put it, as to whether the  good saint first saw the light on  the 9th or the 8th of March,   After  years of angry disputation and shil-  lelah   wielding,   ifc   was;   mutually  agreed     that   the     two     figures  should     be    united     with      the  respective   contestants     and     Sfc.  Patrick's      day      celebrated      on  the   17th.   This   arrangement has.  worked very well, but ifc must have  been very galling to the opposing  factions to discover that ifc was not.  the birth of the saint they were  celebrating���they were really commemorating his death.   It is now  generally accepted that Sfc. Patrick  was born at a little place called  Kilpatrick, near Glasgow, Scotland,  in.the year. 377. . Early in life he  had.the good fortune to be taken  over to Ireland���even if by pirates.  He was held as. a slave, herding  cattle,, but   having received some  religious .training from his parents,  who wero French refugees, he commenced to .use. his influence for good  among the pagan people.   Pope St.*  Celestine   commissioned    him    to  preach the gospel in Ireland, a,nd  this   commission. was   afterwards  ratified by .Sextus III.   This was  about the year 433," On the 17 th of  March, 464, St. Patrick died,, and  was buried at Down, in the north  of what has since his time been  established as the Isle of Saints.  Ifc was Sfc, Patrick who practically  made the "shamrock the emblem of  Ireland.    He used the little trefoil  in explaining the doctrine of the  Trinity���the three persons in one  of the Godhead.    It was St. Patrick  who established the see of Armagh,  whose archbishop is to this day the  primate of all Ireland. >  There is no more popular saint in  the calendar today than St. Patrick, and that quarter of the globe  in which the 17th of Ireland is hot  duly'houoi'edri^yet^to^beexploredr  Ifc is the only day in the year on  which the Emerald Isle can  truly be described as "united Ireland." The Protestant; Orangemen  of the north and. east unite. with  Catholic Nationalists of the south  and west in doing honor to their  patron saint, while the fifes and  drums of Ulster attuned to playing  "The Protestant Boys," accommodate themselves, for this occasion  to "Sfc. Patrick's Day in the Morning," and the brass bands of Munster,  which can at other times be heard  to advantage in "God Save Ireland" or "The Wearing of the  Green," change their tune on the  17th of March. Ifc is truly a great  day for Ireland���afc home and  adroad. V ^  Ainonef-other bad things which  Sfc, Patrfcfe* banished from Ireland  when he undertook to rid the country of snakes (there were no distilleries in the island in those days)  was heresy. Ifc is the only place in  the world where the church has  not had to interfere with heretics.  At high mass at the Churchof  Mary Immaculate yesterday Rev.  Father Ferland alluded in his sermon to Sfc. Patrick as the apostle  of Ireland. He alluded to the saint  as a man of prayer and -mortification, and said that Ireland had preserved the faith intact from the  days of the saint to the present  despite her vicissitudes and persecutions. At the time of the Reformation when Scandinavia, Germany,  England, Scotland and other people  fell away, Ireland held the good  faith and established her reputation  as the Isle of Saints. Ireland, the  gentleman said, was a pioneer  had heard the good tidings of .true  religion, before Scandinavia had  known the living God, even before  the Franks were converted she was'  enjoying the blessings of religion  and education.  At Emmanuel church this evening  a Sfc. Patrick's Day concert will be  given. A very attractive program  has been arranged, including several popular Irish numbers. Afc the  Hotel Phair yesterday morning the  first entry on the register was "Erin  go Bragh." The gentleman had nothing to say for publication. A  great many enthusiasts are said to  have, deferred the celebration until  today.  A Start in Housekeeping.  t The residence of William Rutherford on Victoria street was the  scene of a happy wedding on Saturday, Rev. J. II. White of the  Methodist church being the officiating clergyman. The contracting  parties were Miss Anna Mabel  Scott of Winnipeg and Mr. Charles  McGinu, manager of the Hudson's  Bay store at Vernon, aud formerly  of Nelson.- Miss Edith Scott, sister  of the bride, acted as biidesmaid,  aud the groom was supported by  W. E. Wasson. The happy couple  left on the 6:40 train for Vernon.  S.    BTEBS  <fe   OO.

The auction sale of the houpehold  effects of T. W. J. Snowden.Robscn  and Ward streets, will be continued  today by C. A. Waterman, the auctioneer.  At the recreation grounds on  Saturday the first football practice  of the season was held. There was  a good attendance of lovers of the  sport, which augurs well for the  season's work.  The pulpit of St. Paul's Presbyterian church was occupied yesterday evening by Rev. Hector McKay of Rossland, who prec ched an  eloquent sermon on "The World's  Malady and God's Remedy."  There was a rumor on the streets  for the past few days that afc least  three members pf the South Africa  police force recruited in Nelson had  failed to pass the final examination  afc Ottawa. The rumor needs confirmation!   ' '���"'.'"  Diphtheria haS again made its_  appearance-in Nelson aud every  precaution is being taken to prevent  its spread. There are only a couple  of cases reported and in these  quarantine regulations have been  established.  Lieutenant Beer, of the Rocky  Mountain Rangers, left Nelson on  Saturday night for Ottawa, whence  he "will proceed with the other  members of the recently recruited  mounted police foi' South Africa.  Mr. Beer got a good send-off.  Tlie mining records on Saturday  at Nelson were as follows: Certificates of improvements to the Oriel  Mining Company ou the No. 1 fraction and Good Hope" fraction; locations, the Snowdon and Strathcona,  five miles south of Nelson, by  Henry Walsh; the Lizzie C fraction, three miles south of Nelson,  by Steve Hawkins; certificate of  =work^to^O_vid=Paulinj3nJheXiQndoiL  Star. ������''>*  W. P. Robinson of this city has  received a letter from his sou Oscar  who enlisted in this city for service  in the Baden-Powell police. The  letter is dated from Ottawa, and  among other things deals with a  dinner which W. A. Galliher, M.P.,  gave to the Nelson and Rossland  members of the force in the Hotel  Cecil. At the time of writing it  was expected that the journey to  South' Africa would commence on  Wednesday. George Patridge has  been made a corporal.  The weekly meeting of the  Nel.son Socialistic Educational Club  held yesterday in the Miners' Union  Hall was addressed by the Rev. Mr.  Munroe ��� on Government Ownership. A number of men and  women listened with much interest  to ��� the reverend speaker, who,  while disclaiming' any rank as a  socialist, proved himself to be well  abreast of the new thought-wave  of which this club is the exponent.  In the discussion that followed both  men and women took part, aud the  meeting closed with the addition of  several new names to the membership roll.  STOVES!   STOVES!   STOVES!

They " are  very big, for in some of the largest  specimens they measure from 15 to  20 feet, each leaf being quite strong  enough to bear tho weight of a  man.  There is more in these leaves  than meets the eye, for hidden under them is a peculiar growth of  speai like formation, arranged in a  circle. This performs the same  function for the plants as pistils do  for (lowers. Moreover, they are  ���mo-Ms sensitive to the touch of a  s.ick or other hard substance. The  natives formerly worshiped this  "devil's tree," for they dreaded its  wrath. When its green leaves rose  restlessly up and down its worshipers imagined that it was necessary to make a sacrifice :to appease  its anger. One of their number,  was immediately chosen and driven  by his howling tribesmen up one of  its leaves to the apex. The instant  the unhappy victim stepped into  the middle of the plant the boardlike leaves would fly together,  clufcehiug aud literally squeezing  the life out of him. Early travelers  in Australia have told us that the  cannibal tree would thus hold its  pre3r until every particle of flesh  had been torn from his bones, after  which the leaves would slowly relax their grim hold, leaving the  gaunt skeleton to fall heedlessly to.  the ground.
