 A77*7l.  Mineral Produotion of British Columbia in 1900  $16,407,645  Mineral Production of Kootenay it] 1900  $10,562,032  NINTH YEAR.  NELSON, B.C., SATURDAY MORNING,  APRIL 13,  1901  PRICE FIVE CENTS  NELSON WHOLESALE TRADE  I*-  BUSINESS     UNCERTAIN,     WITH  MAN? SMALL OBDEES,  Troubles  in  Anticipation   Make  Re  tailers Conservative in  Buying  and Wholesalers Cautious.  Tho week   just closed   has   not  been a very busy one in the wholesale  trade,  although   preparations  had   been   made for   filling  large  orders.    The closing down  of the  Moyie     camp   and   a    prevailing  presentiment   that   there   will be  labor troubles in. Rossland has had  much   to   do    with    the    existing  evidences of uneasiness, and orders  are in consequence on a very limited  scale.        Wholesale     houses    are  ' cautious in sending out  goods, except to old customers.    A thirty or  sixty-day   bill  ia   only  negotiable  under present circumstances  when  backed up by* some solid  security,  '  unless the party of the second part  be well known to the party  of the  first part.    Orders have been pouring in to some of  the  local   wholesalers, but they have nob been filled,  being unaccompanied by the  ever-  acceptable check.'    Not for  many  mouths have the freight  sheds at  the C. P. R. depot been so  bare as  during the past few days;   there is  practically     no   freight    moving.  Local trade is fair,  but  from  outside points "easy" is a mild term to  apply."     Prom    Boundary    points  orders continue to come in, but not  so freely as  might reasonably be  . expected at the opening of a season.  .East Kootenay  points   havo  some-  N    what fallen   off   within   the  past  week,   although  a couple  of  new  . lines have been opened there. Blairmore,   for  instance,  appearing  on  .the shipping list for the first time.  Orders filled for Moyie were in  be-  . fore the closing down of the mines  of that camp.    The appearance  of  i ..smallpox at  some  of  the eastern  towns has also had  its effect upon  . trade generally.  .    . The   California   Wine  Company  "filled orders during the week  from  R >bson. Moyie,  Ainsworth,  Ymir,  Trail, Erie, Sandon. Silverton, New  Denver, Slocan City,  Grand   Porks  and   Greenwood.    Men .will   drink  and men will smoke  however dull  the times.  A. B. Gray (Express Cigar Company and R. P. Rithet & Co.) reports business fair. Mr. Gray is  oub ou the road and is rolling up  orders.    -  Cholditch & Co. have had a fair  week's operations, shipping to  Greenwood, Grand Forks, Slocan  City, Phoenix, Ros-land, Eiaslo,  Trail. Ymir, Moyie, Pernie, Lardo,  Trout Lake, and Ferguson. The  opening of the railway operations  inthe"Lardeau"_country���has-given"  an impetus to trade in that section.  E. Ferguson & Co. had business  transactions with Trail, Phoenix,  Rossland, Moyie, Sandon and Greenwood. Mr. Ferguson . has been in  the Boundary country for the past  few days and has sent in some respectable orders.  The Nelson Saw & Planing Mill  Company have sent consignments  of lumber to Woodbury Creek���  where, by the way, the King Solo-  man mine was closed down on  Thursday���Grand Porks, Lardo,  Slocan City and Ymir. A fair business is reported by this firm.  .Macdonald & Co. had a long list  of shipments but they were in the  main short orders. The points supplied were. Eholt, Aldridge (formerly known1 as Moyelle) Burton,  Robson, Comaplix, Salmo, Kitch  ener, Erie, Roek Creek, Columbia,  . Ainsworth, Ymir, Greenwood, Nakusp, Cascade, Rowland, Ferguson,  Kaslo, Ltrdo, Creston, Slocan and  Sandon.  . J.'.r." Griffin & Co. had also a  numerous list, and their shipping  bills show ��� a better business than  that of the preceding we<}k, or as  compared with the orders filed at  the opening of last mouth. The  shipping points were : Slocan City,  New Denver, Fernie, Port Steele.  Cranbrook. Moyie, Ymir, Erie,  Grand Forks, Columbia, Lardo,  Sirdar, Kuskonook; Salmo, Nakusp,  Sandon, Whitewater, Alamo, Three  Pork-, Greenwood, Trout Lake,  Revelstoke, Rossland, Trail, Kaslo,  Vernon, Phomiix, and Kimberley.  H. J. Evans & Co. speak of business as fair, but look ' for a busier  time. During the week they made  shipments to Grand Forks, Kitch-;  ener, New Denver, Blairmore, Silverton, Ymir, Pernie, Sirdar, Robson, Kaslo, Grand Forks, New Denver aud Slocan.  The Brackmau-Ker Milling Co.  have had a quiet week's business,  and do not look for any immediate  pick up. They shipped to Creston,  Burton, Lemon Creek, Slocan  Junction, Kaslo, New Denver, Pilot  Bay and Lardo.      ��  The Kootenay Supply Co. have  filled a number of small orders since  Monday last from Cranbrook,  Moyie, Sirdar, Robson, Creston,  Columbia, Arrowhead, Ymir, Slocan  City, Sandon, Cascade, Greenwood,  Procter, Grand Porks, Kitchener,  New De^er, Whitewater, Kaslo,  CrawforrMvj^^nd Eholt.

EXPRESSION OF PUBLIC OPINION  Appropriation for a Court House is Demanded.  STEPS TAKEN TO ORGANIZE  A  COMPANY THAT  WILL BUILD  AND OPERATE  A Befinery to Handle the Product of  the Silver-Lead Smelters of  -  .     British Columbia.  Every industrial enterprise must  have a beginning, and already a  beginning has been made to establish a refinery in British Columbia.  The company will be known as  "The Canadian Refineries, Limited."  'The objects for which the company  will be established are to erect, purchase, hire, operate and maintain  buildings, machinery, implements,  tools, and plint for the purpose tof  sampling, assaying, concentrating'  reducing, smelting, milling/refining,  and manufacturing minerals of all  kinds, and to, carry on the business  .of. smelceBs,^miners,-? assay ers.^-and  dealers in" bullion", "metals, and all  products of smelters of every nature  and description. ���  The company will have power, to  enter into any arrangements with  any government (Dominion or  Provincial), or any authority, municipal, local, or otherwise, that may-  seem conducive to the company's  objects. The nominal capital of the  company is to be $1,000,000, divided  into 100,000 shares of $10 each.  The - following named are the  trustees that will incorporate the  company: W. F. Teetzel, Hamilton  Byers, Jacob Dover, Prank Fletcher,  John A. Turner, Fred Irvine, John  A. Kirkpatrick, and John J. Malone,  all of whom are Nelson  men,/  ���OncethememorandunrofassociaT"  tion of the company is registered  and the company has legal authority to transact business, the plans  of the promoters will be made  known to the public.  The Unsanitary  Chinese.  Alderman Selous and alderman  Irving yesterday paid a visit tothe  Chinese quarters at the rear of Rib-  let's, on Frout street. The former  gentleman has already brought to  to tlie attention of the city council  the unsanitary condition of this  particular district. Nothing appears to have been done to abate  the nuisance, which is positively a  danger to the public health. The  Chiuese undertook to connect with  the sewer and the city will be asked  to drain off the stagnant surface  water and some liquid filth.  Off the Track.  Switch engine No. 584 jumped  the track a little west of the G. P. R.''  depot yesterday afternoon, and  completely blocked the line. The  accident occurred just under the  smelter chute, and trains coming or  going west had to be stopped at  this point. A couple of weeks ago  the same engine met with a similar  accident at this particular spot. No  one was hurt, and last night the  track was cleared.  The King Solomon Closed Down.  The King Solomon mine on Wood-  berry creek was closed down yesterday. For some months past development work has been successfully pursued on the property, which  is now in a position to ship. It is  expected that operations will be  resumed at an early date.  Incompliance with a numerously  signed requisition mayor Fletcher  last night convened a public meeting to discuss the court house project, and to secure an expression of  opinion on a subject which has been  recognized as a grievance for years  past. There was a large and representative attendance and the unanimity which prevailed showed conclusively that the public are alive  to the importance of the matter.  The mayor, in openi ng the proceedings explained the circumstances under which the meeting  had been called, pointing out'  that the judges, juries and all  who had to do with the court house  condemned it. A public gathering  such as the present, and a forcible  expression of opinion on tbe point,  would materially strengthen the  hands of the local representative in  the provincial legislature in demanding that an appropriation be made  in the estimates for a new court  house for Nelson.  D. M. Carley was appointed secretary of the meeting by acclamation.  John Elliot was the first speaker,  and said that court house accommodation was not merely a subject of  interest to the local legal profession.  Judges, grand juries, petit jurors,  and everyone else who had business  in the court house suffered inconvenience and annoyance, and some  were beginning to say that Nelson  would not get a new court house  until the province got a new government. The previous two governments had promised to build a court  house, and had actually provided  for it in the estimate?, but the  present" government���the business  government as they" were pleased  to call themselves'-'Vs'ay: "We have  . no money." Where, he asked, did  the bulk of the money come from,  if not from- Kootenay ? Were they  getting their share of it ?. (Cries of  "No, no.") In Rossland with'an-  -opposition member at Victoria?*  they had a court house which cost  some $50,000 or $60,000, while in  Nelson they were expected to  get along with a wretched  building that was a disgrace  to the proviuce. "I tell you this,"  said Mr. Elliot, "that if the people  of this city are not alive to the importance of' this subject we will  have no. assizes held here. The  judges won't come to Nelson and  hold court in such a place. Not  one, but every one of the judges  have expressed themselves in the  strongest terms a gainst the accommodation provided here. Our  member is doing.his best to secure  the necessary appropriation and we  should strengthen his hands."   Si-S;-Taylor-"regarded-it as a  very serious matter that there was  not decent court house accommodation in Nelson. This-was tbe commercial as well as the judicial  center of Kootenay. and if  they desired to maintain this  position they should see to it that  they had proper, court house accommodation. There was said to be a  movement.on foot to remove the  judicial center to auother city,  whose people seemed to be able to  pull the proper wires to secure an  appropriation for a court house,  and where there was a building ex  ceeding the wants of the place. The  position now was that the judges  would ..not hold court in Nelson���in  a building that ,was a disgrace in  more ways.than* one. It was not  large enough, it was unsanitary,  unhealthy,and meant a head ache  from the start to the finish of a  case. The result was that judges  were often forced to try the cases  in chambers, to the exclusion of the  public, who had a right to be present; and! inconvenience and sometimes' extra expense to litigants.  The Law SocierjKwould vote them  some $5000 or $600G for a law library in Nelson but there was no  convenience for it, and consequently  they were without the library.  W. A. Macdonald said it was full  time that, some determined stand  should be made on this question,  and that the people ot Nelson demanded of the government an appropriation for the building of a  suitable'court house. Nelson had  been the' recogiiized assize town  ever since Kopterilay was Kootenay,  and they should insist upon Nelson  remaining the judicial center. There  was a feeling kbroad that the  building,of the court house at Rossland meant the',- removal of the  judicial center from Nelson there,  but he hoped this was a mistaken  feeling. . Rossland was not geographically ,the center, "but Rossland has a good court house and  Nelson has not. . The court house  here has' been condemned by everyone who has anything to do with  it. The air of the court room is  foul,.hot because there are a lot -of  lawyers there, (laughter) but because there is no proper ventilation.  The, place cannot be kept clean, no  matter how hard- a ..janitor may  work. , In the winter it is so cold  that the judges cannot sit in it."  The speaker denounced the place as  a standing disgrace to the city and  the proyince.aud.urged the meeting  to str'engtljen-lth'ej''li*ands^of their,  'local member" 'In"''demanding"' the'  building of a ��� courj;. house- as''a'  matter of necessity-r-not as a  matter of courtesy,    ty,,  A. L. McKillop movejji; the following resolution, which was seconded  by   JacobJ Dover:  Whereas, the court house in the  city of Nelson is wholly unsuitable  to the requirements of such a build-  ' ing, is ill ventilated and unsanitary  to such a degree as to be a menace  to the health of those using it, and  contains no decent accommodation  for judges, jurors, court officials,  witnesses, members of thelegal'pro-  fession and the general public who  are called-upon to transact business  there:  And whereas, these facts have  been in past years repeatedly noticed and rematked upon by grand  juries, judges and others whose duties require them to occupy the  court house from time to time: -  And whereas, in view of the large  volume of business transacted in  such court house and the increasing  importance of the city of Nelson  and the surrounding district, the  present totally inadequate building  used as a court house is ia disgrace  to the province, and- ��� reasonable  accommodation for the transaction  of legal affairs is urgently demanded:  Therefore be it resolved, that the  provincial legislature be requested  to include in the estimates for the  current year a sum sufficient for  the construction of a ,proper court  house in the city of Nelson.  In moving the resolution Mr. McKillop pointed out that every grand  jury since 1897 and every judge  sitting here since 1898 had' condemned the court house.  John Houston, M. P. P., at the  call of the meeting, said he was  with the in their efforts to obtain  all they were entitled to, but, unfortunately, there were people in  Victoria���the people who held the  purse strings���who would not think  as they thought. "We want to hold  them up," said Mr. Houston. "The  last successful hold-up I had was  whenl got them to settle quarantine claims which had held fire for  a year." He had had several interviews with the government with  reference to appropriations for a  court house and a high school for  Nelson, but the answer always was,  "We have no" money," and the answer, no doubt, was true. If all  therequests for appropriations were  granted, there could not be sufficient ' raised by mortgaging the  whole province to meet them. He  himself had had demands for appropriations aggregating $150,000.  He might possibly get $40,000, or  if he got an appropriation for a  court house $90,000; but if all the  other members were to be as suc-  cessfuul there would not be enough  money left to build Smith Curtis'  Coast to Kootenay railway this  year. [Laughter.] A member could  not get all he wanted at' once, but  -by exercising patience and, using a  little common sense he hoped to get  his' share. With regard , to the  judicial center being, transferred  from Nelson to Rossland, he did-not  believe there was anything' in-it.'  ���He did.not object to Rossland's,hav _  ing a good~-court house.' * At'the  time the appropriation ��� was made,  Rossland was badly in need of a  public building, moreln need of one  than any town or city in the  province. At the time Nelson had  a court house, which was then considered a very good one. It was  not a wise policy to either belittle  or antagonize Rossland. If the  people of that city hnd succeeded  by tact and ability in getting a  $40,000 court house, they were entitled to it. . If Nelson had only an  $8000 court house it was because  Nelson was an old-timer town,  whose people were slow but sure.  But, at the same time, they should  persist in their demands, and  never   let up on  the  government  until they were recognized. As_far_  as he was concerned he would keep  at it, and if he did not get what he  asked for today he would get it  tomorrow. "I have three years yet  to serve in the legislative assembly,  and I'll get the money to build a  court house before I retire from  office. You can depend upon me  doing everything possible in the  matter, and you need not fear that  the judges will make up their  mind and agree to leave Nelson for  Rossland within the noxt three  years."  The motion was put and passed  unanimously.  Significant Resolutions on the Railway Question.  The following resolutions were  then moved by ex-alderman J. A.  Kirkpatrick, aud seconded by ex-  alderman A. L. McKillop:  Whereas, not only the future but  the present well-being of the people who have all their property interests in the mining districts of  Southeastern British Columbia, is  wholly dependent on the mining  and smelting industries in that section; Therefore, be it resolved:  First, that,in our opinion the  Hon. A. G. Blair, minister of  railways and canals, should have  the unanimous support of the members of parliament from British  Columbia in the effort he is making  to insure to the growing smelting industry of Kootenay and Yale districts an adequate supply of coal  and coke from the Crow's Nest  mines, the profitable working of  which was rendered possible by the  completion of the Crow's Nest Pass  railway, the greater part of the  cost of which.was borne by the Dominion government:  Second, that the member for Nelson riding in the provincial legislature is voicing public opinion in  supporting Hon. D. M. Eberts, attorney-general, who has given  notice that the Dunsmuir government will incorporate provisions in  the Crow's Nest Pass Southern railway bill that will prevent discrimination in favor of Montana  smelters as against smelters in  British Columbia.  Be it further resolved, that the  building of what is commonly  known as /the Coast to Kootenay  railway should be left to private  enterprise, as it is not of such importance as to warrant the province  in aiding its construction by a cash  subsidy;/but,  instead, substantial  aid should be given to insure the  immediate construction of a railway that would give the farmers of  the Okanagan Like country a direct outlet to the mining camps in  Southern Yale and Southern Kootenay, which would place them in a  position to compete with the farmers of the Colville and other farming districts in Washington.  Mr. Taylor moved that as there  were three resolutions that they  should be voted on separately.  Mr. Houston opposed Taylor's  motion, explaining that the resolutions were practically one, and  should be treated as such.  Air.   Taylor   found   no  seconder,  and   the   motion   was   put   in  its  original  form and declared  carried,  unanimously upon a show of hands.  This concluded the business aud  the meeting separated, having done  a good night's work.  Tbe verandas on certain Baker  street premises are to be removed,  being considered a source of danger  and an obstruction. Several sign  boards which cross the sidewalk  will also be ordered down. According to law these signs shall project  not more than two feet from the  building. ..-���*���-..  A few stalls, to do servjee as a  pound, are to be erected at the east  side of,the recreation grounds fence.  Will Be Heard in Chambers.  P. McL. Forin will hold chambers  on Tuesday, acting for his brother,  the judge, who is visiting Belleville.  Ontario, his old home. There are  a number of applications to be  heard, but the acting judge will be  relieved considerably by the settlement out of court of a big batch of  claims against - the Molly Gibson  mine.          Nelson Gun Club.  - At a meeting of the Nelsou Gun.  Club last night tho following officers were elected: Patron, William  Steele; president Percy Criddle;  honorary president, Jacob Dover;  vice-president, Dr. Hall; secretary-  treasurer, Clarence Goepel. There  will be the usual club shoot this  afternoon at the traps.  HAVE ONLY A HAZY IDEA  OP WHAT LEGITIMATE   QUABTZ  MINING   REALLY   IS.  The Annual Beport of the Minister of  Mines Will be Out of Date Before It.is Issued. ��  HODGE IS A FAMILY MAN  STABTLE3 THE REGISTRAR WITH  HIS VITAL STATISTICS.  Becords the Fact that he is the Father  of Three Sets of Twins Within  Four Short Years.  Frederick Hodge, a prospector  who makes Nelson his home, and  who is not above turning his hand  to' any honest work that offers when  not engaged in the'-hills,' yesterday  entered' the registrar's office and  made a wholesale entry-, of .births.*  On July 9,1898, he became thehappy  father of two boys.", This was his  serondtwin experience.. . ,Onv-April  23, 1900, Mrs. Hodge presented Fr^d--  erick with another pair of youngsters���a boy and a girl. The trio  of twins are all doing well. Hodge  read an articls in The Tribune the  the other day dealing with the responsibility of parents in the' matter of registration and this induced  him to pay the registrar a vi-it.  Better late than never. Be-ides  the entry was a decidedly novel  one. He has been married five  years and has a family of seven.  East Kootenay. Mines.  J. B. Laugley, census commissioner for the Port Steele division,  was in town yesterday, and reports  that the Sullivan mine has prac-  ticallsr suspended operations, and  that it is expected the  North Star  -will-follow��� suit-next���week The  rpason assigned for their course by  the management of these properties  is that the market price of silver  and lead is too low to allow of the  profitable working of the mines.  An Enumerator  Quarantined,  C. M. Edwards, one of the census  enumerators for the Fort Steele  division, is quarantined as a smallpox suspect some dozen miles from  Cranbrook. Edwards happened to  be working Cranbrook and is said  to have visited the Cosmopolitan  hotel in his rounds. He cleared out  of town when he heard of the smallpox, but the sanitary authorities  were after him. He is held in a  barn pending developments.  Assayers' Exams.  Twenty candidates for assayer's  certificates will commence their examinations in Nelson on Monday.  The examiners are provincial analyst Carlyle, A. L. McKillop, Cuth-  bert Welch of the Trail smelter and  H. Harris of the Hall Mines smelter.  The examinations, which embrace  theoretical and practical assaying,  will bo held in Teetzel & Co.'s warehouse, where every accommodation  has been provided.  Census Commissioners.  There will be a meeting of the  census commissioners today in Nelson for the purpose of comparing  notes and receiving instructions.  Those commissioners who are expected to attend are: A B. Buck-  worth, Nel.son; J. B. Langley, Fort  Steele; T. Parker, Rossland, and A.  B. Dockstader, Slocan. Mr. Buck-  worth reports that satisfactory progress is being made in the Nelson  division.  The people of the interior .make it  their business to keep posted on the  mining development of the country.    It is questionable if they appreciate how completely outside the  ordinary   interests of   the people  of the coast everything appertaining to mining really is.   This  wps,  most amusingly shown at a "public  meeting which took place in Victoria  sometimeago. Agentlemanwasillu' - ���  tiating his remarks as to the importance of the mining industry by  .  a reference to the Granby Smelting  Company.    In some way he figured ,  out that this company  had  fifty  nine million dollars of net profit in '  sight. "His calculation depended on '-  a statement- which he made that  the company made $6 a- ton  profit  >  on every .ton of ore.   The odd thing, *  was, not that an  individual.should  make a blunder of  this kind',  but  that it should  be enthusiastically  accepted by a crowded meeting a.s  fact. It was not accepted ;by every?   .  one, however.    A later speaker said   ,  he  did  not  see   how  the, Granby  Smelting Company could  make $6 ���  a ton  profit  as  the smelters  only  !  charged $0 for smelting a ton of [,  ore.    Now observe the number of'<  things   which   were', mixed upiu __  these statements.    Theie  was first,-  the returns of a  mine  like  the- Lew *  Roi whose statements show a prodc  ���  of about $5 a ton, confused with  a ;  mine like tbe Old  Ironsides which!  is playing in luck "if ,it makes , $1,50 [.  per ton; second, the operations of a'"  company .owning ' mines' " and'  ��'- ,  smelter  were  mixed  up  with  the *'_  presumed     profits   'of.. _a._smelt-,  ing' . "company   -buying".'- its ' ore; -  and     finally      the      charge,    for  smelting was referred to in an airy  way as if it were  a fixed tariff for '  every kind of ore  like the charge '  for polishing boots or a haircut.' Ic .'  would not do any good to explain  such    things . in    Victoria.      The  mind     of     the     community      \h ,  in     a     fog     about     miuing     because    it    is    not    interested    in ,  mining     It is not want of  intelli- ~"  gence, it is want of interest.   Any-  ���  one can  become  a tolerable  chess  player who is  interested  in  chess.  Anyone can become a fair  mathematician who  has  an  affinity  for  mathematics.    The  people of Victoria could do as much for the development of tbe mining industry  as the people, say, of Spokane, pro-  -vided-they-tooka-rafional-interesc���  in mining affairs.    But they do not.  In a province whose  whole  future  depends upon mining this  is a  serious state of affairs.    But serious or  not it is a fact, and  a fact  which  painfully    and    immediately    impresses the visitor to Victoria.  The annual report of the minister '  of mines for last year is not yet in  the hands of the printer. The government printing office has been  pres-ed for time during the session  of the legislatuie and it is unlikely  that the report can be taken in  hand till the end of the session. If  a mouth is allowed for printing and  proof correcting and bo on it, will  be at least the middle of June before this report is issued. Thus  half the present year will be gone.  At this rate the provincial mineralogist may just; as well give up ,  the idea of providing any original  material for the report. Last year ....  a visit to Atlin and a hurried trip  through Kootenay were all the explorations he accomplished, aud  now half of this year, is taken up  compiling and publishing the report. Mr. Robertson works on an  entirely different system from Mr.  Carlyle. The most valuable 'and  readable portions of Mr. Carlyle's  reports were the result of painstaking personal inquiry. He was a  tireless worker in the field. Mr.  Robertson does not work in the  field at all. He takes a flying trip  aud gives a sketchy geueral opinion, generally the reverse of favorable. He is gradually restricting  the whole work of the mining bureau to the four walls of his office  in Victoria. This will surely result  in the dry rot of what might be a  most valuable department of the-  public service.  :<4'  <1  7'G  ,-vi<f  _, ��� ~'*��.

G. Blair, minister  of railways and canals in the Laurier   government,  is  opposing    the  consideration  of  the Crow's Nest  Southern Railway bill by the railway committee of the house of commons on the   ground that guarantees must   be  given  by  both  the  Crow's Nest Coal Company and the  proposed rail waycom pany that there  will be  no discrimination  against  British   Columbia smelters   in  favor of Montana smelters in supplying coal and coke. /He is doing this  ot a time, too, when much publicity  is given to reputed settlements of  all   existing   differences     between  the    Canadian     Pacific    Railway  Company   and    the  "Crow's   Nest  Coal ' Company;   settlements that  a-e      said ���   to      have     removed  all c*nsn for opposition to the passage of  the  Crow's  Nest  Southern  Railway bill. , This goes to show  that the minister of railways'��� not  in leading strings.   It goes to show  -/that he stands up for- the interests  of the p ople, and that, so far as it  is in his-pow'er, their interests   will  be protected. It is' a pity that there  are not more men in public life in  Canada like the honorable  A.  G.  Blair of New Brunswick.  The   resolutions   passed   unanimously at the public  meeting  held  in this city   last   night   voice  the  opinions of nine-tenths of the people  of Kootenay.    The people of Kootenay   are   not    misled   as   to    the  motives   that   govern   tho    forces  that are m'ikitig  the  fight  itr Jim  Hill's interest in this province. Tliny  know that Hill  never builds "independent"     competitive   ..railways.  They are only  "independent"  and  competive before   they are builtT  "When Mr. Hill wanted an entrance  into and free right-of-way through-  Spokane for   the   Great Northern  railway, the people of that city were  ' promised coast terminal rates. When  deeds   to   the   right-of-way    were  secured, nothing more . was afterwards   heard   of    Coast    terminal  rates   from    Mr.    Hill,     however  much was heard from the men  to  , whom the promise was given.    The  Great  Northern was built through  Spokane,   and   that  city  today is.  discriminated   ag-iinst    in   freight  rates jmt as it was before the Great  Northern railway was built through  ��� it.    Yet the people of Spokane paid  over half a million  dollars  in cold  cash for that promise from Mr. Hill.  -The people of British Columbia are  i asked to pay this same Mr. Hill two  million     dollars     in     cold     cash  in    order   to-    help     him     build  an     " independent''     competitive  railway from  some indefinite point  in Yale   district   to   ah indefinite  point on the Coast.    As soon as the  cash is  secured, the road, if built,  will  be neither "independent" nor  competitive.    The people of Kootenay know this, and are not over  anxious to be duped  by the spellbinders who are shouting Mr. Hill's  prai��es.       .The Economist and The Tribune  a'e being censured for speaking *a  good word for two of Rossland's  Qrit politicians. The former boosted  Dr.  Sinclair for a senatorship,  and  tlie latter has been booming John  Buncombe Kerr, the editor  of  the  Rossland    Miner,    for    the   same  position.    The local Grits do  not  like this.'   They say that the editors  of   both the  Economist and The  Tribune are Conservatives, and are  using  their influential journals to  disrupt the Liberal party in Nelson.  This insinuation is as un j ust as it  is uncalled for.   There would be no  spice in politics  if   all the people  were of one  political belief.    But  to square The Tribune with the  conscience   of   the Young Liberal  party     of      Nelson,     from      this  time on the political advancement  of John Buncombe Kerr of Rossland  will be entrusted to that eminent  Conservative politician,  Alexander  Dick, and The Tribune will use its  influence to promote the fortunes of  such - iife-long   Liberals   as James  McPhee and Stuart Campbell and  John   Rae,   either   one   of   whom  would adorn a bench in the senate  chamber,   where   prayers   are    a��  often said in French as in English.  Morgan Stopped the Gambling.  New York, April 12.���According  to tbe London correspondent of the  Tribune, it appears that it was J.  Pierpont Morgan of New York who  put a stop to the gambling which  was reported as having occurred on  th* "White Star line steamer Teutonic while she was at sea. The  correspondent says: "It is stated  that on his voyage across the Atlantic the great financier was instrumental in discomfiting two card  sharpers who were reaping a rich  harve-t -among the passengers"  Tuursday's di*-patch simply, says  that two .fiisi-class passengers on  the Teutonic were caught cheatinir  at poker and were obliged to make  restitution a.fier they had won considerably over-��200.

York, April 12.���The World  says: "A magnificent cup is to be  offered today by one of the best  known yachtsmen in New York for  a race between the Constitution,  the Independence, and the Columbia. The offer is the result of the  declaration of XV- Butler Duncan, jr.,  manager of the new cup defender,  that he could not get too many  races for the Constitution. He said  he wished to enter her wherever  suitable .prizes were offered, provided the courses had plenty of  water."  Bubonic Plague in Michigan.  Chicago, April 12.���A special to  the Record-Herald from Aun.Arbor,  Michigan, says Dr. Novia, when  asked regatding the condition of  Charles B. Hare, the student who is  supposed, to have the bubonic  plague, said: "Nothing has yet been  decided. He is recovering rapidly.  He is out of bed and walks around  occasionally inside the contagious  ward." Student Curamings, who is  caring for Hare has not caught any  infection and preventatives are  still being applied to him.  Building Trades Threaten Strike.

NEWS PRINT PAPER TRUST  has not Proved such a great  financial success  As Its Promoters Led Newspaper Owners and Managers to Believe  It Would Be.  WASHiNCiTOX, ; April 12.-���The  manufacture of the news print  paper of the country-was the subject of enquiry on the part of the  .-iiidustritil uoniuii-siou today; John  Not lis. business manager of the  New York Time-, being Lhe witness.  ���Mr. Noriis dfevoted his attention to  the International Paper Company.  ''I will assert." he said, "chat ihn  International Paper Company has  failed in every expectation it held  out to the newspapers and to the  public. The cost of manufacturing  is* greater under consolidation than  under individual ownership of the  paper mills. The economies which  were to be obtained under the consolidated management have not  been realized. The export trade  has fallen off, or at least has not  incieased, though that was to be  tlie strong feature of the consolidated company's effort. The  promised policy of un* enlightened  self interest has been abandoned,  and tlie net- result to newspaper  publisher* has been an increase of  over $4,800,000 per annum in the  cost of news print paper."  He   placed tho  output  of   news  print paper at $20,000,000 per year.  Referring   again to   the   promises  of iucreased  economy due  to  the  consolidation, Mr. Norris  repeated  that it  had not   been realized.    As  an instance, he said  the president  of the consolidation was   paid $50,-  000 a  year  aud   managers' salaues  were increased from $7500 to $15,-  000.    There   also   had been' a vast  addition to the spruce lands owned  by the  company, the  area secured  in the United States   bringing the  aggregate up to 1000 square miles,  while 2000 square miles of this laud  are   controlled   in Canada.    There  had-   likewise   been   an  increase in  freight charges.    AU told, he placed  the enhancement of  the cost price  of  producing   paper at $3 per ton.  He knew of two newspaper-) which  were payingan incraaseof $150,000  each anuually.on the paper used by  them.    Mr.  Norris  gave the daily  output   of- the; news  print paper  at   2055   tons;   of   whieh ��� the' International -company furni.-hed 1200  tons,    while     the     mills    of     the  company  had  a  capacity  of  121(5  tons per day,yand  said  thnt  there  was a,constant increase of   producing capacity  outside  of  this   company, notwithstanding the boast of  the International Company that  it  owned all paper water "powers   and  all available spruce lands.    Mr Nor-  ris attributed the recent insrease in  the price of p-tp^r   to  four  causes  namely, to  the Spanish  American  war, the  South   African   war,   ihe  drouth of 1899 and 1900, nud the attempt   of   the   International   company to monoplize the spruce lands.  He suggested that trade relations  with Canada should   he   promoted,  in O'dor that the  practically   inex  haustiblepulpsupply-of��� that conn-  try might  be  drawu  upon.    "We  should," he said,  '"adopt  the  plan  which president, McKinley   has  advocated  of   remitting  those  taxes  which experience hts. shown   to   be  the    most    burdensome     to     the  industries        of       the       people."  He asserted that, the  International  company    had   opposed  Canadian  reciprocity, and ��hn result had been  Canadian reprisals.   He advocated  the removal of the tariff on lumber  as iri the interest of all classes.  The    winness   said    that   former  proidmir. liua<"'1l wm�� the only tuan  who could have cfiv.'-ti'd   tho consolidation of   all   Che  pa^er''mill.?,  and that the effort  had  cost   hi.m  his life.    He declared that many of  the mills included  in   the  combine  were practically worthless, many of  them, he said, were located on exhausted water courses and adjacent  to denuded forests.    He said ; there  recently had been an effort to unite  the outside eastern mills in.a- scheme  to maintain prices.    Where there is  no positive  evidence   of. collusion,  he said  publishers  realize., in   some  intangible way that the   source   of  their supply has   been   predeterm-.'  ined for them, and  that ths price  they are to pay has been prearranged.  He said  that the  daily   papers   of  New  York   had   curtailed   to   the  extent of nighty tons   per   week   in  consumption, aud  that   the   Philadelphia papers had  takeu a similar  step.    Tiiere   were;   he  said,   more  violent fluctuations in the price   of  paper than prior  to'consolidation,  and   some    newspape.r    publisher's  paid more for inferior   paper   than  others   paid   for   good   paper.      He  also seated   the    paper   companies  were rapidly denuding   the  forests  Co their gtvat iuj ury.  lZl  TELEPHONE 27  zB"X":E:e,s <& oo  Store.
