 ESABLISHED   1892  MONDAY  MORNING,  JANUARY  13,   1902  ���i  y  t  TEE HUHATIQN  THE GREAT EVENT OF THE  YEAR.  DAILY EDITION  in the United States army during the recent trouble with Spain, who are anxious  to serve with the Boers in South Africa  and who want to know If captain Devllliers can make any arrangement for their  transportation there. Captain Devllliers declared that it was impossible to get men  to Africa.  A SMALLPOX SCARE LIKELY TO  MAR  THE  SUCCESS' OF  THE AFFAIR.  NEW   YORK,   January  11���The   London  correspondent  of  the  New  York Tribune,  Mr.  I..N.  Ford,  says, in part:  "The coronation  holds  the held  this year whatever  may be goin on in South Africa and whichever   may   be   found   the   new   sources   of  revenue required for currying on the warfare with a few thousand guerrillas. Nothing  must  ue  done   to  interfere  with  that  splendid   function.   Lorci   Salisbury   must  remain in harness,  the ministers must b2  content with a job lot of minor measures,  the duke of Devonshire must substitute a  safo little education bill  for  the big controversial   one,   sir   Michael   Hicks   Beach  must get the money he needs with the least  possible disturbance, Mr. Chamberlain must  avoid   the  gentle  art  of  making  enemies  abroad,  Mr.  Broderick must keep  talking  generals under muzzle and parliament must  jog  along  as  quietly  as  possible.   This  is  . the spirit of the classes by which England  . is now ruled and the masses of London, if  not tho provinces, are in sympathy with it.  The brilliant social season, brimming over  with gayety and animation and culminating  in the stately spectacle which three or four  thousand people may attend and which can  be produced on  the screens of  the music  halls the next night for the masses, is tlie  substance of things hoped for by tho Radicals, and  the Nationalists must indeed be  wicked  fellows  if  they  persist in  talking  politics and asking questions about concentration   cn,mi>s   when    the   coronation   js  coming on  and  there is  a chance  of the  sudden development of color photography,  by which plates can be taken in the abbey  nnd   the   scene   reproduced   in   the   music  halls  in  colors,   with   the  queen   and   the  duchesses in all  their glory.  But the Nationalists will be as unmanageable as ever,  ��� taking mischevlous deligtlt in making themselves disagreeable during the carnival of  loyalty.   The  German  chancellor  and  Lle-  burrman Von Sonneberg have overshot the  mark and  paralyzed the English  criticism  of Mr. Chamberlain. From that source the  German abuse of the British army, and as  'ii mob of miscreants and Mr. Chamberlain  as a scoundrel, reacts in favor of the government here. John Bull hardens his heart  and, while too prudent to stir.up bad bio-id  in war time, has no intention of deserting  the   powerful .minister  when   he   Is   under  the tire of foreigners. The anti-British outbreak in Germany,  combined with the return   of   the   dowager   empress   to   Pekin,  where nothing has been changed since the  attack  upon  the embassies,  has conduced  to   deep   reflection   in   England   upon   th.n  - worthlessness of any continental alliance.  Germany having been admitted to partnership  with  Great  Britain  in  middle  China,  lost interest in Manchuria and pi.-iyed into  the hands of Russia with the result that  the empress regent has returned in triumph  and, at th expense of an indemnity, ha% restored   the   prestige   of  a  discredited   dynasty   and   when   the   political   exigencies  arise at home the German chancellor does  not  shrink  from  appeasing the  agrarians  and Catholic center by deliberately affronting the strongest member of the Salisburv  government.  A series of royal visits will  have to be exchanged between Berlin and  London before any approach to a German  alliance will be tolerated.   .  The condition of sir Kills Ash mead Bartlett, M.P., following a serious operation  last night, is now dangerous. He has been  suffering from internal, inflammation for  some days. Sir Ellis Aslimead Bartlett, M  "P. for the Ecclesall division of Sheffield  in the Conservative interests, was born in  Brooklyn, New York in 1S49. He was formerly civil lord of the admiralty and was  knighted in 1899. His brother. William Lehman, married the countess Burdett--  =iCouttsr"whose-name~he=assumedr  Buffalo Bowling Bout,  BUFFALO, January 11.���The entries for  the bowling tournament, which will begin  here on January 2Cth and continue through  the week, have been closed and have been  lilled beyond expectations. They will bo  made public this evening. Representative  bowlers of this country and Canada have  entered either as individuals or in teams  of two and five men. Manager Floss is engaged in arranging the playing schedule.  The live men teams will play first and at  the conclusion of that the two men teams  will follow, the individual matches being  the last to be bowled. Bowling will begin  at 7 o'clock on the evening on January 20th.  Woman Murderer Commits Suicide.  MANCHESTER, January 11. ��� Annie  Beaudry, a former employe of the Amos-  keag Manufacturing Company, today entered the company's mill and approaching  Virginia Gagnon, who was at work, shot  her in tlie head with a revolver. Later  Miss Beaudry committed suicide. Miss Gagnon was not killed but was seriously wounded. Jealousy is supposed to have been at  the bottom of the affair.  HIS POLICY  Is an Approach to Government Ownership of Railways.  SECURING BRITISH CANALS  The British war office is confronted with  a most serious state of affairs, its call  for volunteers to relieve the regulars at  the front has, so far, met with absolutely  no response and has served to intensify  tho widespread indignation existing among  all the volunteer regiments. In the first  place, volunteers answering the call,  would only receive a shilling a day, while  the yeomanry. In which many volunteers  have already enlisted, receive live shillings  per day. The only solution for the deadlock is for the war oflice to Introduce conscription or withdraw the new regulation.  The manager of one of the largest trans-  Atlantic lines was asked by a representative of the Associated Press today if he  expected an unusual number of Americans  to be present In London nt the time of the  coronation of king Edward. He said: "No.  by May. I fear we shall have such a smallpox scare and epidemic that London will  be ln quarantine when king Edward is  crowned."  That this is by no marts a pessimistic  forecast is evidenced by the fact that the  lino referred to began this week to have  vrews vaccinated prior to leaving London  for New York. Other lines are following  its example, fearing that any day the American authorities may place London shin-  ping under an embargo owing to the smallpox. The vaccination of the crews is only  a preliminary to the same operation! in  case of passengers. The English shipping  firms, or agents, have no desire to undergo the financial loss which would be involved by the detention of vessels having  on board unvacclnated crews and passengers. Tn this respect the shipping interests  are ahead of the United States consulate,  which up to the present has taken no steps  to protect health at the home ports.  The Prefect and the Populace.  ST. PETERSBURG, January 11.���Owing  to recent evidence of a disposition on the  part of the populace to demur at the demands of the police, general Kleiget, the  prefect, has caused notices to be posted  ordering imperatively Instant obedience to  any orders of the police, failing in which  the delinquent is punishable by imprisonment for three months or the payment of n  fine of 500 roubles.  United States Consul Banquetted  TORONTO, January 11.���Hon. L. Sewell,  retiring United States consul, who leaves  shortly for Parnambuco, Brazil, to which  port he has been transferred, wa.s a guest  of honor at a banquet given by the leading  citizens last night at the National Club.  Nearly all of the speeches referred to the  great friendliness of the-political relations  between the two great branches of the  Anglo Saxon race.   !   American Boer Sympathizers.  NEW ORLEANS, January 11.���Captain  Xi. Devllliers ot the Boer army, who is ln  this city, is ln receipt of a letter from H.  C. Arnold of Bloomlr.gton, Illinois, declaring that he has orgawized in Illinois a  company of young men, sll of whom served  Will Use Electric Power.  LONDON, January 11.���One of the greatest   American   commercial   enterprises   in  Europe has just culminated here.  It consists  in  the securing of all  water  routes  for American cargoes of grain and other  commodities   from   inland   ports   in   the  United   States  to   inland  ports  ln  Europe  and embraces  the  purchase  by American  capital of several British and other canals.  Frank  W.   Hawley,   vice-president   of   the  Erio   Canal   and   Traction   Company,   has  been  on this side  several  months  quietly  securing concessions for the operation of  European  canals  by  electricity.   The  Erie  concern today secured control of about five  thousand miles of canals in England and  on the continent. As a result cargoes will  shortly be shipped on the same bill of lading  from  Duluth,  Minnesota,   to  Brussels,  Ghent,   and   Cologne,   and   later   to   many,  points   in   the   United   Kingdom.   France,  Germany,   and   Italy.   At  the  forthcoming  session  of parliament  the British  legislators will be asked to grant permission for  tho erection of central power stations for  tho  propulsion  of  traffic on at least  two  British canals.  These will be operated by  American capital, though their control will  nominally remain in Britsh hands.  Mr. Hawley sad today to a representative  of tho Associated Press: "Yes, it is true  that the traction company is making considerable progress in securing all water  routes by electrically operated canals  throughout. Europe. I cannot tell you yet  the names of the English canals which will  figure in parliament. There are in the  United Kingdom 1138 miles of canals owned  by railways, which .lo not make a very  good financial showing; but 276S miles of  English canals,. indenendent of railroads,  show earnings of ��729 per mile, which are  greater than those shown by many American railroads. However, we have been  able to get control of a portion of these,  because their operation and maintenance1  expenses are over 70 per cent of their gross  receipts. Tho largest canal in England,  viz.. the Birmingham Grand Junction,  Leeds and Liverpool, Oxford and Bridge-  water, are not far removed from sources  of electric power supply, at least nothing  like so far removed as is the caiial at  Oakland, California, where the power is  transmitted from the Yuba river, a dls-;  tance of 140 miles. Therefore, it is merely'  a question of getting the necessary consent of parliament for the conveyance of  this electric energy before the English canals will be equal to the canals of America  and Belgium. Electrical energy has resulted in increased facilities with a corresponding reduction in the cost of opera-,  tion."  VICTORIA, January 12.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���The following is the  text of a letter that premier Dunsmuir  has addressed to the people of British  Columbia. The letter was published in  the Colonist this morning:  To the People of British Columbia:  In view of the persistent criticism in  the press and at public meetings, and  the determined efforts that have been  made to defeat the government for reasons that cannot be justified on grounds  of public policy. The following statement is an explanation of my po_itiuu  and of the policy of my administration,  and during the campaign to follow that  will be opposed on the^platform:  DID NOT SEEK THE PREMIERSHIP.  Discussing the Panama Canal,  WASHINGTON, January 11.���M. Edouard  Lampre, representing the Panama Canal  Company, appeared before the senate committee on inter-oceanic canals today in  ^_obedle_nce_to ^e ^summons of_ that committee to testify concerning the "affairs"-f"his"  company and its preference to sell its property to the United States. Mr. Lampre  was questioned at great length by members  of the committee. Ho said that his mission  to the United States had been to ascertain  to whom the appll:ation for the sale of the  Panama property should be made. He had  cabled to his principals, the result being  that their offer to sell for $40,000,000 had  been made directly from Paris and not by  him. He said .however, that it was the  understanding that the principals Included  both the franchises and property of the  Panama Canal Company, but not the  money in its treasury, which Is about 16,-  000,000 francs.  McCall Declared a Professional.  NEW YORK, January 11.���A letter has  ben received by secretary Sullivan of the  Amateur Athletic Union from the secretary  of the Canadian Amateur Athletic Union  at Montreal, saying that, at an executive  meeting of the Canadian Amateur Athletic  Union, Dr. George McColl of Buffalo had  been declared n professional athlete. At the  last meeting of the Amateur Athletic Union  the Hall case .was discussed and referred  to the Canadian association. The Amateur  Athletic Union will abide by its decision,  and Hall will not be allowed to compete  as an amateur in the United States.  Base Ball Arbitration Board.  NEW YORK, January 11.���The national  board of arbitration held a meeting ln  this city last night. This is the governing  body of the minor base ball league of America. Those present were P. T. Powers,  president of the National Association of  Base Ball Leagues: H. K. Sexton, president  of the Three I's League; J. A. Farrell, of  tlie Now York League; ond T. H. Murnane.  of the New England League. Authority  was given for the fixing of the salary limit  of the leagues.  Both Won in Twenty Rounds.  LOS ANGELES, California, January 11.���  Al Neil of San Francisco was given the decision over Mike Donovan at the end, of the  20th round last night.  SEATTLE. Washington, January 11.���Tn  a 20 round boxing contest last night at the  Seattle Theater before 20.000 people Dal  Hawkins was given a decision over Perry  Queenan. At the end of the 20th round both  wero on their feet ready to fight, but the  referee decided that Hawkins had the better of lt.  Burns Knocks out "Mexican Pete."  SALT LAKE, January xl.���Jimmy Burns  of Spokane knocked out Mexican Pete"  Everett in the 13th round at the Salt Lake  Athletic Club last ni_ht.  Erne Came Back.  NEW YORK, January 11.���Frank Erne,  the former lightweight champion pugilist,  has returned from England.  '  It is well known the presmt political situation has arisen almost entirely  out of the railway negotiations of* the  last session. Whatever else may be said  about me, nobody will accuse mo of  seeking the position of premier. When  called upon, I accepted simply on the:  grounds that I hoped to be able to bring  about that settled and satisfactory state  of affairs, and I had assurances from  men representing all shades of opinion  that they would support me in that effort. Since the present trouble began,  I would willingly have resigned, had I  seen any likelihood of a union of parties in the house under someone else  able to form a stable government. My  own business is sufficient to occupy all  my time, and there can be.no personal  advantage to me ln remaining in office.  NOT INFLUENCED BY MARTTN.-  I am accused of "joining forces with  Mr. Martin and being dictated to in my  policy by that gentleman, who, it is contended, having, as shown by the last  general election, lost the confidence of  the country, is not qualified to advise  or assist the government. I shall explain how that gentleman and other  members of the opposition came to support me; but just here I wish to sa/,  absolutely, that neither-myself nor my  government have been directed by them  in any matters of policy or administration whatsoever. . Knowing that all that  has been said about an unholy alliance  for the purpose of defeating the V. V.  & E. ,"I can say that Mr. Martin neither  framed or had anything to do with  framing the government railway policy,  and never saw the railway bill of last  session until the day on which it was  laid before him in the house.  THE RAILWAY QUESTION.  That measure, I may add, was framed  in connection with what the government  thought was the expressed and well-  understood wishes of' the people in regard to the measure of control tho gov-  ernment should exercise over railways  assisted by the province, and what they  believed to be sound public policy. The  conditions were such as I was willing,  as a private individual in promoting the  extension of the F. & N. railway to accept conditional upon the co-operation  ^e^felt^^-w^rgr_entiUedJo_receiye from  the Dominion government If~ri6"rail^  ways have been undertaken under the  legislation of the last session, it was because we have not yet received that cooperation. Our policy was strictly in line  with the representations we made to Ottawa by letter and" by personal interview, before the V. V. & E. company  came forward with their proposition at  all. It was stated to the executive, and  it will not now be denied, that with the  exception of 30 miles at each end, the  building of the main line of the V. V.  & E. over Hope mountains depended  upon lcceiving a Dominion subsidy in  addition to that given by this province,  In considering the cost of railway construction in this province, and the undeveloped state of the country, I personally would not, and no other person or  company would think of building lin��s  of railway such as were contemplated  into new districts without further aid  than the province -could afford to give.  We can grant lands, lt is true, but  everybody knows the hue and cry,  whether right or wrong, that has been  raised against such a policy. Without  minerals and timber as well, which of  course would be out of the question, no  company would want land unless that  land included the best and most arable  tracts required for purposes of settlement. The government is prepared to  consider any such propositions, provided  always that the public interests are  properly safeguarded, and that their  building is in accord with our general  policy.  DUTY OF THE DOMINION.  The position this government has  taken is that, in view of the large revenues derived from British Columbia,  the Dominion should in duty bound  assist in railway building in this province in at least the ratio of two to one  and that when the province gives aid  to railway companies there should be  govermental control and a fair return  in interest for the aid and privileges  granted. It is said the conditions the  government imposed were too severe;  but it must be remembered that substantial aid was expected from Ottawa;  and in our representations we offered  to modify our policy in any reasonable j  way conformable with the views of the  government. The public must understand that with our limited financial  resources, and with so much of our revenues alienated to the Dominion, this  or any other government would bankrupt the province if it aided all railways proposed and got nothing from  them in return. Few people realize that  about one-fourth of the revenue that is  received from all sources in the province  by provincial treasury goes to Ottawa,  and we only get a little over one-third  of what we contribute back in the way  of subsidies and appropriations. How  then are we to build all railways, bonus  ship building, and open up and develop  all the country that is promised by -our  opponents, if the terms of union are not  to be readjusted, "and we are not to receive a much larger share of what we  contribute to the Dominion?  BRITISH  COLUMBIA    DOES  FOR CANADA.  MUCH  My policy, and   that   of this government is not only to urge on the Dominion government to relieve us from Oriental immigration, but to bear the harden of railway and ship building and  fishery development,  or hand us back  such a share of our; contributions as will  enable the people of the province to do  it for themselves, f With a population  the smallest of all the provinces, British Columbia is the province that has  done the most for Canada.    It has in  thirty years paid to the Dominion $15,-  000,000 more than it has got back.   During the same period the debt of the  whole of the Dominion   has   been   increased by over $125,000,000.   Do these  facts not prove the correctness of cur  contention?    Impressed with the great  weight of the circumstances against us  under such an arrangement as at pres- |  ent exists, we have renewed the correspondence with the   Dominion   on the  subject, pointing out clearely that the  peculiar physical conditions of the province greatly increased the cost of administration   as   compared with  other  provinces    (three, times   greater)   and  that under the terms of the union it is  difficult, if not impossible, to maintain  an equilibrium between revenue and expenditure.    We have asked for a convention between the two governments  to review the whole .facts  of thecase,  and by fair, open,. and impartial ��� investigation arrive at a readjustment.  WILLING TO COMPARE POLITICS.  It is said the government has no policy. I am willing that the people should  say whether such a policy, so far as the  development of the country is concerned, will not compare with the policy of  any other public man who has stated  his views. I am willing that the whole  policy of the government, as I shall outline it, should be placed side by side for  comparison. The financial situation,  from the point of view as between the  province and the Dominion must- be  faced now or at some future time. I ask  in all fairness, if these are facts, who is  entitled to the credit for honestly striving, by making representations to the  government at Ottawa, to improve the  finances and to secure the development  of the country? If any other government were in power tomorrow it would  find it could not make bricks without  straw any more than we can. So long  as I. am premier, I shall not depart in  -the-slightest-degree-from_.the^posttion.  we have taken in demanding from the  Dominion government that we shall at  least have our case investigated, have  our claims, if well founded, recognized.  A RETROSPECT.  Now then, I come to my position in  regard to Mr. Martin. Last session, as  everybody knows, the government's policy in connection with railways was being formulated, and after it had been  submitted to the house, tremendous  pressure was brought to bear on us to  accept a position submitted by tho V.  V. & E. I shall not refer to the nature  of the agitation or to those who promoted it. The cry was for competition  in railways and against the C. P. R.  Owing to the attitude of a number of the  supporters of the government on tnis  question a crisis was created. A great  deal that was mysterious, was going on  on all sides, and rumors were thick  about the downfall of the government.  No other government in British Columbia possibly ever had so much pressure  brought to bear on it at any one time  as was brought to bear on the government last year to accede to the terms  which practically meant the exclusion  of all competition so far as the building  of the Coast-Kootenay line was concerned. We were practically held up, ar��d  with the gun to our heads asked to surrender or submit to defeat. Because we  refused to be held up in that fashion  the government has.been denounced ��S  tools of the C. P. R. So far from our  being tied down to that corporation or  controlled by its influence, I will just  say that the V. V. & E. would have j;ot  the subsidy had the company accepted  the conditions laid down in the Subsidy  Act, and they know it. Moreover, if  they had been willing to build the whole  line over Hope mountain the government would have met and assisted them.-  That company would not so agree. They  wanted to be allowed to build 30 miles  at each end under the terms of the act  and get the subsidy for the GO miles co  built. In that event they were willing  to wait forever, if necessary, to get the  Dominion subsidy. Is there a man in  British Columbia who has the hardihood to say the government should  have entered into such an agreement?  It was at that time I learned of a combination, which included many of my  supporters had been formed to defeat  the government   This may be denied,  as it has been, but I have good evidence  of it, which is wanting in the journals  of the house;  and had the opposition  then joined hands with the disaffected  element and tne independents, the government would undoubtedly have been  defeated.    It was at this critical tii.ie  that the members of the opposition, who  declared themselves in accord witu" the  railway policy of the government, volunteered their support, and I was very  glad to get it.   As a consequence of this  support, the plans to defeat us did not  mature.    I may, however, be mistaken  in the course I have pursued, and even  as to the events which influenced me���  and I take upon myself the entire te-  sponsibility���but I felt- that I was entitled, in filling one of the vacant portfolios, to recognize the support of the  opposition that came to me at a critical  time, by selecting Mr. Brown. As I have  said, I may have made a mistake, but  whether right  oi'^'wrong, I   acted as a  politician, perhaps, but at least in a way  that appeared to me to be right.   M<m  who complain about Mr. Martin coming  over to 'the government must not forget the men who were willing to go over  to the opposition and make a new deal.  I was very sorry, indeed, to see Mr. McBride, who had been a life-long political opponent of "Mr.  Brown, leave the  cabinet, and I still believe his reasons  were insufficient.  THE VACANCIES.  The government has been blamed for  inaction, and for not bringing on the  bye-election   in Victoria   and   for   not  filling the vacant portfolios;.but even in  that there is nothing so unusual or un-  precendented   either   in   Dominion   or  provincial   politics.     The   government  must be the judge of the best time in  which  to  make its  own arrangements  and to define the policy upon which elections are to be held.   I have felt that a  determined effort   was being   made   to  take advantage of the political situation  and by pressing an election to defeat  the government.    For this purpose the  government has been misrepresented in  every   way   possible.     When   elections  were held I wanted,   as   leader   of the  government, to-be in: a position, to lay  a definite program before-the'electors,"|  upon which all former supporters of the;  government and- members' of the legislature could unite on a practical, business-like program.    The defeat of the  government candidate in Victoria would  I have no doubt, be regarded by many  as tantamount to a defeat of the government, and without a policy ahd the intention of the latter being fully known,  defeat in Victoria would be very probable; but if, on the other hand, our position and policy were such as to jus-.,  tify the delay that has- occurred, and1  such as^ apart from my personal course,  in asking Mr. Brown to take a seat in  the cabinet, could be defended and approved by all, I felt that the government,  has pursued a wise course in not making;  haste too quickly.    It may be assumed  that if I had not invited Mr. Brown to  join the government, I could have counted on a large majority ln the next meeting of the legislature, and, therefore, if  our program is now such as to win support on its merits, anything that might  be FegardeU~as~ tactical^mistakes^of^my-  own in regard to the personnel of the  cabinet woUld not be a sufficient cause  for  bringing   on   a new   election   and  plunging   the   country    into    political  chaos again, and that too before a redistribution bill could be passed, leaving  the country inequitably represented for  four years more.  REASONS FOR DELAY.  In the first place, the government had  undertaken a most important matter,  the survey of the Coast-Kootenay line  over Hope mountain, and we wanted a  report as to the feasibility and the cost  of that line. Hon. W. C. Wells, chief  commissioner of lands and works, as  soon as he received the preliminary report from Mr. Dewdney, went east to  take up the subject of railway construction in that country with several railway  companies and the Dominion government; also the question of building the  Canadian Northern, which will soon  reach the Rocky mountains, and concerning which we are carrying on negotiations at the present time. Upon his  return Mr. Prentice had gone east and  the Christmas holidays intervening,  matters for consideration could not be  fully decided upon. We have since been  discussing and formulating plans on several most important subjects preliminary to the bye-election in Victoria being held and the meeting of the house,  and we are now prepared to submit them  to the country.  THE      GOVERNMENT'S      RAILWAY  POLICY.  as a joint undertaking, and give all railways   full  and  equal  running powers  over it upon certain terms, the same as  is proposed in the case of the New Westminster bridge.   This would, of course,  depend upon making suitable arrangements with the C. P. R. and the V. V.  & E. to use it when built.   In so doing.  I have stipulated that it is not to be regarded as a precedent for or against the  general  principle  of government  ownership, so far as this province is concerned, or as applicable to other roads  under consideration,   but   simply   as a  proposal that might wisely be adopted  in special cases and under peculiar conditions.   The province alone is not able,  nor do I believe it is the business of the  province, to undertake the building of  railways on its own behalf, but so far  as this   particular   line   is   concerned,  where some company must be subsidized to the exclusion of all other lines,  by the Dominion and province uniting  on a certain division of cost it would  afford-the competition desired, and provide for all time to come against the  trade of. the country being monopolized  by any railway corporation.  IMMIGRATION.  �� Another matter of the greatest possible importance to the province is the  settlement of the unoccupied  lands of  British Columbia.   This more than anything else has occupied the attention of  the  executive.    While there are  large  areas in the interior not yet reached  by   railways   suitable   for   settlement,  there are at the same time considerable  tracts of both crown and private.lands  in the   districts   adjacent' to   existing  lines of communication.which are vacant  and unproductive.   I believe 'we should  first   swell   up   the districts  near our  towns and cities before going far back.  The difficulty we find is hot in getting  settlers, because inquiries are numerous,  but in locating them.   The government  has devised a scheme for placing tracts  of land from 1000 acres in extent upwards on the market for settlers on the  easiest possible terms.   I cannot outline  the plan before the meeting of the legislature takes place, but a bill will be  submitted very early in the session, and  it will be found practicable and calculated, to effect the settlement on small  holdings of lands of farmers in the most  accessible districts.    This we regard as  the most businesslike immigration policy that could be adopted,   and   in conjunction with the agent-general's office  in London will result in great good. No  amount of advertising will avail if we  have no definite arrangements for settlers  when  they  arrive.

REDISTRIBUTION.  HON. DOBELL DEAD  THROWN FROM HIS HORSE  AND KILLED.  WAS ON A VISIT TO FOLKSTONE.  ENGLAND, FOB THE BENEFIT  OF HIS HEALTH.  OTTAWA, January II.���[Spefital to The  Tribune.]���There is a general sorrow hero  over the untimely end of Hon. R. R. Dobeli  who was thrown from his horse while riding  at Folkestone, England, and instantly  killed. The premier received a message  from Mrs. Dobeli, who was along with her  husband, conveying the sad intelligence.  Dobeli was in poor health before leaving  for England and it was for the purpose of  recruiting that he went there, his wife accompanying him. It is understod that the  deceased was suffering from heart disease  for some time past. Ho took very little interest in political affairs beyond looking  after the fast Atlantic service for Canada.  He was, however, still a member of the  cabinet without a portfolio.  LONDON, January 12��� The Dobells arrived at Folkestone a Week ago and were  joined by mayor Hull, a son-in-law, and  his family. Mr. Dobeli and Mr. Hull rode  together Saturday attended by a groom.  AVhen they reached the foot of Shorncliff  Camp, Mr. Dobell's horse was startled by  a motor carriage. Mr. Dobeli was thrown  from his horse, falling heavily on his head.  When picked up he was unconscious, and  was practically killed by the concussion.  The family will remain at Folkestone for  the inauest.  The letter addressed to sir Wilfred  Laurier, copies of which have been sent  to the several senators and representatives of the Dominion 1: -.use of commons from the ; ������ ���'���"' \ asking for their  co-operation in urging our claims on the  government at Ottawa, clearly outlines  our position in railway matters and reviews the whole negotiations of the last  year. As an earnest of our desire, now  that we have formulated definite knowledge of the proposed route via Hope  mountain, to afford dir-jct communication to the southern interior, and in order that competition may be maintained without discrimination to railway interests, the government has made a proposal to join hands with the Dominion  government to build the line over the  Hope mountain   into the   Similkameen,  The government also- recognizes the  Importance of redistribution; but it also  recognizes as of still greater importance  that when a measure is introduced it  should be as fair and as comprehensive  as possible. I contend that in a province like this, it is impossible for the  legislature to deal with all the details  of a bill without having more information than is afforded by bare census returns. Natural boundaries, resources,  and special conditions of each district  should be considered, and having this  in view, the government is prepared at  the coming session to deal with the matter in a way that will make it satisfactory to all parts of the province. In  the way proposed, all sections will be  consulted and all interests considered,  so that when a measure is submitted  the house will be in a position to judge  intelligently and act accordingly.  TAXATION OF MINES.  "^The-memorial'of^the mine-owners setting forth their grievances has had the  consideration of the government, and as  a mine owner myself, I naturally sympathize with them in whatever degree  the laws may work a hardship, because,  as with our principal industries, it deserves all the encouragement possible  and should be relieved of every unnecessary restriction. Hon. J. H. Turner at  the last session announced, as minister  of finance, that the question of taxation  as a whole would be dealt with in a general act, for which information would  be forthcoming during, recess. Our  grievance complained of is incident to  the 2 per cent tax, as between high-  grade and low-grade ores. We recognize that in certain cases that may be  inequitable, and we are considering its  readjustment in proposed legislation.  Mining is affected by measures both Dominion and provincial in their nature,  and if the Dominion government at Ottawa will join with us, we are willing  to agree to a joint commission in which  all phases of the industry may be investigated and reported upon at one time.  SHIPBUILDING.  Shipbuilding, the encouragement of  which is of vital importance and one  which was the subject of strong representations at Ottawa, I regard as a matter belonging to the Dominion more than  to the province. We cannot afford a  system of bonusing on the scale necessary, even if we so desired; but we will  continue our representations, and hope  if a convention is arranged with the  Dominion, to have it included among  the subjects to be dealt with. The province is willing to do its share, and at  the last session of the legislature a bill  was prepared and printed, but there was  not time to have it passed.  THE FISHERIES.  The matter of control and development of our fishing industry is still unsettled, but in the meantime wo have  appointed a practical man to investigate the conditions of fish life on this  coast, with the view to the better pro-  pogation of salmon and tlie development  of our fisheries as a whole. We believe  that a man whose experience has been  obtained and whose success as an expert, has been demonstrated on this  coast is better qualified  for such work  (Continued on Fourth Page )  Whole Family Burned to Death.  BUFFALO, January 11.���Henry Heart-  stone, his wife, and five children ranging  from twelve months to twelve years old,  wero burned to death this morning in a  fire that destroyed the two story frame  building at 1047. Broad way. Joseph Supow-  ski, who owned the building and kept a  shoe store on the ground floor, has been  placed under arrest pending an investigation. Earl Bruki, Supowskl's brother-in-  law, Is also detained by the police. Supow-  ski , carried an insurance of $9000 on the  building and its contents. The Heartstones  and another family livt��u In rooms above  tho store, and were asleep when-the firo.  started. Supcwski told the police today that -  he aceidentlly dropped a lamp. A few mln- .  utes after the fire started a terrific explosion occurred, which"blew out-the front of  the store and hurled its contents into tho  middle of the street. The flames enveloped  the building in an incredibly short time.  Tho family living in the rear flat barely  escaped with 'their lives.** The" Hearts tone-  were awakened, but before they could  reach the only stairway leading from their  rooms the fire had undermined the floor  in the hallway and it collapsed under their  feet, carrying-them down into a seething  mass of flames. Their charred bodies wero  found at S o'clock; The body of the mother  and baby were found together. Heart-  stone's body was found close to that of his  wife. He also held one of the children in his  arms. The bodies of the other three children were found close to that of tho  father's body.  Greenwood Local News.  GREENWOOD, January 12.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���R. F. Coates of this town  met with an accident today. As he was  hauling a load of powder to Fairview he  slipped on the icy road and fractured his  collar bone. He will be disabled for a few  weeks.

NEW YORv, January 11.���The steamship  Etruria, of the Cunard line, came to her  dock today showing many signs of tho  rough voyage she had In corning across.  Most of the forward rail on her promenade dock was gone, having been broken  ami washed by waves which struck tho  ship at :' o'clock ln the morning of last  Thursdiy. On the starbocrd side of the  vessel, about 10 feet long, was snapped off  by tho wave and dashed against the steel  hull underneath the captain's bridge. Big  holes are visible irV the deck where tho  iron supports of the rail wero situated,  the wave having torn and pulled out the  nuts and bolts as if they wero so much  paner. No ore wa.s on deck when the accident occurred and but few were dlstrubed  by the crash.  Scabs and Japs on Strike.  SAN FRANCISCO, January 11.���Twenty-  six mechanics, who have been working at  tlio Union Iron AVorks filling the places  of some of the American iron workers  who aro on strike for a shorter working  day, have been, called out and have quit  work.

Kirkpatriek  -.niayor.-raeans^a^cleanJyisjiLQS^^ajlminjs-^  tration for the year 1902. He has no  pets to foist into offlce; no supporters  with a "pull" demanding percentages  from people conducting gambling  rooms; no friends in offlce that must lie  cared for whether they earn their salaries or not; no affiliation with corporations that are trying to destroy utilities in which the city lias invostod  thousands of dollars. Me is not seeking the offlce because his "bread and butter" depends on the salary that goes  with tho offlce. It will be a bad day for  Nelson Avhen its highest girt, in the way  of an offlce is sought for and secured by  men who must have the salary attached  to the offlce in order to live. Nelson  docs not want mendicants for mayor.  Nelson should have men in that ollice  who are capable business men, and  should pay them liberally for their services while in offlce; but the city hall  should not be made a "retreat" for  broken down politicians.  amounting to $10,829.62, or a total debt  of ?18,994.35. The public works they  carried on speak for themselves. Five  blocks were macadamized with, stone  curbs and crossings and nearly four  blocks Avere planked with 4-inch plank.  .The electric light dam Avas rebuilt, the  water and sewer systems extended, and  a complete road-making plant purchased. Stanley and other streets were  graded, and a uniform system of laying  sideAvalks adopted.  Mayor Fletcher assumed office in January last. The debentures issued by the  council of 1900 Avere unsold and the  overdraft at the Bank of Montreal was  $18,778.14, and there were sundry outstanding accounts amounting to $4396.47.  The total of the unsold debentures and  interest thereon was $76,587.17. To this  should be added the amount of the overdraft and the amount of the outstanding  accounts, and the total ($99,761.78) represents the debt mayor Fletcher and his  council had to provide for. The people  authorized them to issue $100,000 in debentures, and these debentures were sold  for $103,750 or $4000 more than the total of the debts left them by the preceding council. So mayor Fletcher and his  council had the entire revenue for the  year 1901 to spend and $4000 in addition,  so he cannot have any excuse to offer  that his administration has been handicapped by any act of his predecessors  in offlce.    His is the only council that  John A. Kirkpatriek does not represent the "grafter" element. None of his  friends or supporters want franchises  permitting them to run gambling houses  on a percentage basis. None of them  Avant the right to plunder people visiting Nelson. None of them want to interfere with hotels and saloons that are  conducting a legitimate business. None  of them are seeking to deprive either  residents or strangers of the right to  purchase food or drink at any hour of  the day or night. John A. Kirkpatriek  represents the liberal and tolerant element in Nelson, as against the wide-  open, law-breaking element that is behind the candidacy of Frank Fletcher.  \M.  Candidate Fletcher says that when he  assumed office he found an unexpected  condition of affairs, which made it necessary to assume an economical course.  The city council of 1900 went into office and found unpaid outstanding accounts amounting to $8104.73 and an  overdraft   at   the   Dank    of    Montreal  had a free hand to show Avhat they could  do in running the city on its yearly revenue independent of money realized  from the sale of debentures. As to what  he has done, the public are entirely in  the dark, as no financial statement for  the year has yet been made public. The  public know that little has been done  in the way of permanent street work,  and they realize that no great improvements have been carried out in any other  direction. The year's revenue has all  been expended and the overdraft at the  bank is said to bo in the neighborhood  of $15,000, and no one appears to know  anything about how much is due on outstanding accounts. Special men Avere  employed at the beginning of the year  to look after the collection of electric  light, scavenger, and water rates, but jt  is generally believed the city never had  as much owing it from these sources of  revenue as it has today. On the whole,  mayor I'Motchcr has been a failure as the  responsible head of the city's business  affairs, so great a failure that the people  would be unwise to give him a trial for  another year. He has been tried and he  has been found wanting.  The Humorous Side of Politics  There Is a good deal that Is humorous in  politics, after all. Two years ago the con-  U-staiits for mayor were Frank Fletcher  and John Houston, and the fight was a  hot one. Tbe Tribune of January 10th prints  pithy sayings of 19 prominent citizens who  wore taking an active part in the campaign. The following aro a few taken at  random:  David Mark Oarlf\v: "The only unclean  thing In this campaign Is the Miner."  Candidate Fletchur: "Tbe Miner Is doing  mi; more harm  than good."  The! Miner: Candidate Fletcher is so unpopular that he can not possibly bo elected."  C. A. Waterman: "I am opposing John  Houston because ho opposes what I consider is my best Interest���a quarter inter-  set in  two nl-kel-in-thu.���iot machines."  Candidate Wilson: "A nickname may defeat me. If it does, f will petition the legislature to change my christian name from  ���William John" to 'Rlake., "  Candidate Morrison: "I will not lose any  sleep  If  f  am  defeated."  Candidate Irving: "Two hundred and sixteen electors have already promised to vote  for rue, and alderman jJecr says Isn't an  untruthful   man   or   woman   In   the   East  ward."  Candidate Fletcher was defeated, and  candidate Wilson was elected. Candidates  Morrison and Irving lied for alderman in  the Kast Ward, and the former was declared elected by the returning oflicer. All  four of these gentlemen are again seeking  election lo the city council and the remarks  they made in ISiW could be repeated today  and with as great truth as when uttered  two years ago.  Municipal Ownership.  Toronto is conservative as well as Conservative. Mr. Maclean's program of municipal ownership and control of public utilities was too radical to suit the Toronton-  ians, although, to tell the truth, his method  of bringing- the principle into active play  was somewhat too impracticable for men  who like to see a clear road for Important  reform before endorsing it. However, it is  significant that even in conservative Toronto more that nine thousand votes were  polled in favor of Mr. Maclean and his  radical program. This is certainly a magnificent beginning, and if the tight is kept up  it should hot be long before the people of  Toronto are induced to endorse the principle which was the main issue in the Toronto mayoralty contest.  But if municipal ownership failed to carry tho day in Toronto it succeeded in other  Ontario towns. By a very large majority  .the electeors of Ottawa endorsed the proposition to control of the city's telephone  franchise. In Guelph a substantial majority of tlie electors declared In favor of a  municipal gas plant and electric light  works. In Milton the Question whether a  municipal electric light plant should be established was decided in favor of the  scheme.  The principle of municipal ownership is  growing. Tn a very few years those towns  which refuse to put lt into practice will  be regarded as back numbers.���Hamilton  Herald.

LONDON, January 11.���There will be a  cabinet meeting here Monday which bids  fair to be most fateful to the history of the  AVest Indies, and may vitally affect the  United states. Lord Salisbury and his colleagues will then decide whether Great  Britain will put on ac ountervalllng duty  on sugar. The colonial secretary, will submit a statement, made tup. on the unimpeachable evidence of the AVest Indian authorities, that if this step be not taken the  sugar Industry tn the West Indian islands  will be dead within a year, and the AVest  Indies will be hopelessly bankrupt." The  British sugar delegates to the . Brussels  conference will also report.-that there is  no likelihood of the continental nations  abolishing bounties, unless Great Britain  declares her intention of imposing countervailing duties, should be bounties be  continued. The preliminary sessions of tho  Brussels sugar conference have convinced  the British delegates that the continental  powers only desire at the most, to amend  the bounty system, and that this is chiefly  due to the hope of assisting their own consumers. The best informed opinions gathered by a representative of the Associated  Press, Inclines to the belief that tho cabinet will not consent to the Imposition of  countervailing duties for fear of raising a  storm of Internal criticism from the old  school of free traders, who constitute a  formidable wing of the Unionist party. The  memorandum which Mr. Chamberlain will  present on Monday will be more in' the nature of an ultimatum than any hitherto  presented to the government. "It is almost  needless to add that the decision of the-  cabinet will be kept a profound secret, at  least, until January 20th, when the British  delegates return to the Brussels sugar conference. It is said that Mr. Chamberlain  readvises the gravity of the position and  favors imposing countervailing duties, but  the personnel of the cabinet includes so  many utterly different economic views that  it is doubtful whether Mr. Chamberlain will  win the day."  One ' o fthe leading authorities on the  West Indies, now in London, is a thoroughly loyal British subject, said to a representative of the Associated Press today: "Tf  our delegates go back to Brussels without  the power to make the threat of the Imposition of countervailing duties, -which  laone can stop the bounties and save tho  West Indies, we shall agitate for annexation to the United States. We have gone  to tho verge of bankruptcy and desperation In our efforts to get the Imperial government to protect the West Indies, if  they refuse, we shall frankly ask for the  privilege of being annexed to the United  States."

It is estimated that it will require all  told $25,000 to put the company in operation and to.raise this amount it is proposed to put 30,000 Dtmres upon the  market at 35 cents and the balance as  the money is required.  The sit* of the company's works has  been named Portland, and the plant will  be so arranged that all the material can  be handled by gravitation in much the  same manner, as in the modern concentrator. There are fifty miles of navigable water on the Pen d'Oreille from  Portland to Newport, which will be the  company's shipping point, and it is proposed to commence work at once upon  th-i ccnstructi-j'i of a steamer I or the  moving of supplies. The output of the  plant will be 200 ibarrels of cement per  day, upon which it is estimated that the  company will be able to earn a profit  of at least 25 per cent upon the whole  of its capital... But as the demand for  the product grows the capacity of the  plant can be increased at a comparatively small cost, it being possible to develop a water power up to 1500-horse  as, against the present 200-horse power,  which is sufficient for an output .of - .00  barrels per day. The. promoters have  been working during the past six months  and have one and one-quarter miles of  ditch and flume constructed A sawmill  is to be erected for the cutting of lumber which will be driven by water power.  A'number of buildings have been erected already and it is expected that the  output of 200 barrels of cement will be  reached by July 1st.  to  to  to  *-:-'-s,^'8*^,-%*:-'^'-i'^'-g,4*^'a''-a'a'^'^8A'a'j,> 1  H.

A cement manufacturing venture is  the latest scheme in which a number of  Nelson mon have become interested, and  from which they hope to make more  money than in the mining of silver-lead  ores at the prevailing prices for these  metals. The Pacific Portland Cement  Company is the name of the new concern which they have brought into being, if their expectations are realized  they will be able to revoluti anize the  manufacture of Portland cement, and  -after-placing-a-very-superior-article.on=  the market considerably under the present quotations have a very tidy profit  margin for themselves. The new company starts out well. Not jnly has it  unrivalled deposits of limes cone, clays  and argillaceous . hsles requisite for the  manufacture of cement, but is also the  owner of a number of new patents upon  machinery for the working of the raw  materials up into finished product, so  that it bids fair to distance all competitors as to both quality and price.  The inception of the new industry has  been very  largely the   work   of P.  G.  Jordan of Spokane.   He has V-een inter-  ested'in the manufacture of Portland cement for more than thirty years and is  credited with having originated a number of the processes at present followed  by    the    English    makers.     Improved  methods for the,manufacture of cement  ���is a subject to which he has given considerable thought, and having hit upon  the solution   of this   problem   he gave  himself up to  the search for the raw  materials advantageously situated  both  with regard to manufacture and transport to points of consumption.    As he  designed to reach the trade ;.f the inter-  -ior section,  where   he   would   not   be  brought   into   direct   competition   with  cheap European labor and ballast freight  ,._ates, he turned'vhis "attention to Kootenay, and in turn. he visited every section which indicated the presence of the  material he sought.   But -vhere one requisite was available another was lacking, and it was not until he had prospected over the Pend d'Oreille that he  found what he was looking for, which  was all the requisites in proximity to  each other.    It  then  became necessary  to get together the capital to put the  new industry upon its test, and in this  work the services of W. H. Dowsing of  Spokane, and T. G. Proctor of this city  was enlisted    The latter -ooured the interest of S.  S.  Fowler, who   has   been  elected president of the company, and of  W. P. Tierney. T, J. Duncan and H. G.  Neelands who will figure on the board  of directors.  The company is capitalized in the sum  of $200,000, and by the terms of the deal  between the company and the promoters  the latter accept the whole of the company stock in return for their property  at Portland, on the Pend d'Oreille, water  rights, improvements, discovery and  new process for cement manufacture,  and agree to turn back to the company  for  treasury  purposes  70,000   of  said  A Few Questions for Frank Fletcher.  1. Why did Frank Fletcher as mayor  favor taking the West Kootenay Power  & Light Company into partnership with  the city.to carry on the business of  electric lighting, on a percentage basis,  when the partnership: meant the closing  down of the city's own power plant?  2. Will Frank Fletcher explain why  the proposed partnership agreement on  a percentage basis wa8 not submitted  to the ratepayers?  3. Will Frank Fletcher explain why  he has ceased to take any steps to ward-  securing the sitefor'a power station on  Kootenay river?  4. Will'Frank Fletcher explain why  he stated the 0. P.

Will Frank Fletcher explain what  he means by the payment of fair wages  when he intends to pursue the "economical course" he says he was compelled  to pursue last year? If he does not intend to carry on public works, it will  not be necessary' to pay fair wages to  anyone other than those whq prepare, annual voters' lists.  6. Will Frank Fletcher explain what  he means by "peace and progress?" According to the report of the chief of  police, the town has been "...unusually  peaceable during the past, year, and if  no public works are to be undertaken,  how can there be progress? .";'  ' 7. Will Frank^ Fletcher explain in  what way'he has0anything to do with',  the enlargementof."the'*' C.'* P. R. shops  at Nelson? Is he master* mechanic or  is he in any way connected with the operating department*, of that road?  8. Will Frank Fletcher explain how  he will cultivate a, spirit of harmony  amongst all .classes when and his supporters are daily impugning the motives  of candidate Kirkpatriek and his  friends ?  9. Will Frank Fletcher explain how  much he owes the city of Nelson for  sewer rates for the year, in which he is  supposed to have paid all his taxes?  10. , Will Frank Fletcher explain why  names were placed on the voters' list  whose owners did not pay their taxes  until two days after he certified that the  list was closed?  11. Will Frank Fletcher explain how  his friends intend to run a "wide-open"  town when he does not appoint the members of the license board and board  of police commissioners?  ���12.^-Will-Erank-Eletcher explain why,  his police force "protected", tin-horns  until The Tribune called the attention  of the public to the fact?  13.

WASHINGTON, January 11. ��� The  house of commerce committee hearing  on the proposed Pacific cable was continued today and vice-president Ward  of the Pacific Commercial Cable Company said he was not certain that its  Pacific cable project woutd have been  undertaken if the long distance experiments of wireless telegraphy had taken  place earlier. President Scrimper of the  South and Central American cable system spoke in favor of government control. He said that if a dispatch from  Madrid to admiral Cervera had not been  intercepted the naval battle of Santiago  would not have been taught. The dispatch ordered Cervera to leave Santiago.  .

S. Barnes, the   senior   official receiver presided at the meetings, which  were taken together, and stated that the  companies had parted with practicaUy  all   their   properties.    The  winding-tip  orders had been made with a view of  the realization of the properties that remained, which formed the assets of the  companies.   The liabilities were of only  a small amount    Since May, 1900, the  British American Corporation had been  engaged ln the conduct of financial operations of a   very   extensive   character,  and which   comprised   the  flotation of  subsidary companies, transactions with  the London and Globe Fnance Corporation,   and   the   Standard   Exploration  Company,' and dealings in shares on. the  stock exchangs. ' In addition, to the ac-  quisition'of the Le Roi property, a number of other, mining properties in the  Rossland    district,    British    Columbia,  were purchased an behalf of the British  American Corporation.    These  properties were formed into groups, the most  important of which  were the East Le  Roi, the West Le Roi, and the Columbia-  Kootenay groups.   By the end of May,  1898i the British American Corporation  had expended on the properties comprising  the   before  mentioned  groups,   the  following sums, namely:    On the East  Le Roi,  ��77,180;  on the West Le Roi,  ��155,234,  which  with  the  expenditure  on     the     Columbia-Kootenay     groups  make    a    total    of    ��294,685.      Those  amounts    included    money    expended,  whether in purchase or in development,  up to the end of May, 1898.   During the  following month the   corporation   registered the East Le Roi Mining Company, Limited, with a nominal  capital  of ��500,000, to acquire the East Le Roi  group for.,��400,000 in shares; the West  Le Roi Mining Company, Limited, with  a nominal capital of   ��500,000,   to ac-  -quire-the-West-Le-_"toi-group_for�����_40.0,^  000 shares; and. the Columbia-Kootenay  Mining Company, Limited with a nominal capital of $500,000, to acquire the  Columbia-Kootenay group, also at the  price of ��400,000 in shares.   No part of  the capital of these companies was issued to the public, and no shares were  subscribed to provide working capital.  Although the properties forming the respective groups had been ostensibly disposed   of to tho   subsidary' companies  they still remained   in   the   possession  and under the control   of   the   British  American Corporation, and the immediate effect of the sale being merely to  convert a capital outlay of ��294,665 into  shares bearing a face valuo of ��1,200,-  000, thus   showing* a   paper   profit   of  ��905,335.    One-half of the amount expended by the British American Corporation upon the properties was' charged  to the London and Globe Finance Corporation 'and the shares received from  the subsidary  companies  were divided  equally between  the two  corporations.  Thus, each corporation included in its  profit and loss account a paper profit of  ��452,667, consisting entirely of shares  created and held by themsel/es.  Between J,me,  1>US.  and Nnvembo-.

That large expenditure on the part of companies possessing  no cash capital did not appear In the balance sheet of the British America Corpora-  lion in that form, but was reduced to the  extent of ��102.000 by the issue to that corporation  of  ��^3.0'JO shares in ihe Bast L,e  Roi   Mining    Company,    limited;    ��37.000  shares  In  the West "Lo Roi Mining Company,   Limited;   and  ��32.000  shares  in   the  Columb'.a-Kootonay Mining Company, "Limited.
