Ho has just returned from a hard trip which lie made  whilst on a tour of inspection to tlie  property of the Cherry Creek Mining  Company, of which he is the vice-president. This property, originally owned  by Fred Williamson ami his brother,  has been steadily worked since the company acquired it. and a force of 17 men  are regularly employed. Mr. Wardner  reports that everything is looking well  and recommends in the near future the  erection of a 10-stamp mill. The**ore,  which is free milling, is said to be very  rich, and the average value will leave a  good profit for the company. Main-  Nelson capitalists are interested, anil  all "Jim's" friends, and they are many,  wish the company a very profitable  future. The property is situated near  the head waters of Kettle river, about  30 miles in a direct line from Fire Valley landing.  Special Meeting-.  A special meeting of the Trades and  Labor Council will be held on Sunday  afternoon at 3 o'clock in Miners' Union  hall. All delegates are requested to  attend; important business.

The proposal of the wholesale grocers of Vancouver to sidetrack the  O.P.li. unless their request for a fair  adjustment of rates from the Coast to  points in Alberta in competition with  Winnipeg, which request F. W. Peters  has tried to pigeonhole but without  success, calls up the question of our  position as regards territory adjacent  to and legitimately belonging to Nelson  as a wholesale centre.  While we are only barely able to  compete as a wholesale distributing  point with Winnipeg and the Coast as  regards the Boundary and Slocan, we  are practically shut "out of the Crow's  Nest district. That the company should  discriminate in favor of Winnipeg or  even Calgary might be passable, but  when it comes to a small town like  Lethbridge it is time to raise the question with no uncertain sound. As an  illustration, we find that the rate on  third class freight from Nelson to Fernie  (203 miles) is 85cents; from Oalgarv to  Fernie (210 miles), 72 cents. Again,  Nelson to Cranbrook (120 miles) the  rate is 65 cents, while from Lethbridge  to Fernie (142 miles) it is but ol cents.  There is unquestionably a decided inclination on the part of the C.P.R. to  favor Northwest Territory cities and  towns.. The new rate sheet for points  on the Coluru bia & Western gives a  through rate on third class, Winnipeg  to Grand Forks, of $2.17; deducting  from this the proportionate freight  rate from Winnipeg to Nelson, $1.82,  we have 35 cents, while the local from  this city to the Boundary one is 5-1 cents.  Tt goes without saying That these rates  are applicable onlyto Winnipeg wholesale, houses to bona fide traders and  show a glaring favoritism in favor of  the prairie city.  Experience has abundantly shown  that the only hope of redress for these  discriminations is in agitation. It will  be remembered that in the fall of 1901  the board of trade made an effort to  bring the matter to an issue, which was  unfortunately frustrated- by the ill-  advised action of the lute Retail Grocers' Association. This action gave the  railroad company a good excuse to  pigeonhole * the application- ' and the  matter has remained in this state ever  since,-.and itneed scarcely-Tbe.-said that  it will continue to do so until some decided action is taken by the board of  trade which will leave no doubt as to  the views of the citizens of Nelson  thereon.  While the board of trade personnel  has been'exceptionally active in matters relating particularly to mining, it  does not appear to have given attention  to the commercial aspect, which a city,  located -is Nelson is, deserves. AVe are  all of us thoroughly actuated in the belief that the mining industry should  receive possibly the first attention at  the hands of the board and of delegates  appointed to' the associated boards,  but the commercial interests are, as  regards the city, of even more vital  importance and should at any rate  ���rank evenly with mining, lumbering,  etc. It is quite possible that the matter has been neglected by the wholesalers and merchants generally,' and  now is a fitting moment for them to be  up and doing.  The question should be taken tip at  once and correspondence opened with  Mr. Peters. The fact that he is now  engaged with the Vancouver people on  J_h_31_3_.nia_mbjectJjioppo.rAuneiand7.may-  lead to tlie general adjustment of rates  in the West. There is no mistake  about the feeling of the wholesalers at  the Coast on this question. They are  thoroughly in earnest over the matter,  and there is no reason why some of  their enthusiasm should not be caught  up by the board here and assist in  carrying the agitation to a successful  issue.  they are going to stay with it until the  finish. Pkess Committee,  Local Branch U.B.R.E.  Nelson, March 28, IE 03.  The Pernie Strike Still Unsettled.  The strike at Fernie still goes on,  notwithstanding the efforts of the conciliatory committee, which it is said  have succeeded in adding two clauses  to the agreement which were formally  verbally  understood.   It is quite easy  to understand, after the way Manager  Tonkin has treated the union, that the  men are not taking any stock in verbal  understandings. They have still a  lively recollection of the way their late  secretary was worked, and nothing but  written agreements s_o now. The real  reasons for the turning down by the  union of the arrangements agreed on  before the conciliation committee are  hard to arrive at, but it is contrary to  reason to suppose that the men were  getting the wages, the company would  like us to think they are, that they  would so persistently vote to continue  fighting. Although little of the real  cause of the stand now taken by tlie  men has been allowed to roach, outsiders, they have no doubt very great and  valid reasons for the strong stand they  are taking, and when their demands are  satisfied, it is to be hoped there will be  such a satisfactory settlement, reached  that the future prosperity of those interested in coal and kindred industries  will be secured against disputes and  strikes for many years.  C.P.R. STRIKE SITUATION.  The C.P.R. strike has been at a deadlock during the past week, neither party  milking any move towards a settlement.  President Geo. Estes of the U.B.R.E. is  now being prosecuted at Victoria at ihe  instance of the C.P.R. on  a charge of  conspiring to delay His Majesty's mails.  Although the case against him is apparently a very flimsy one, innumerable  witnesses for the prosecution are being  summoned from Vancouver.   They are  a mixed  crowd,  including newspaper  reporters, members of the strikers' executive   committee,   C.P.li.    officials,  -steamboat men, etc., most of whom are  at a loss to understand why they have  been put to this inconvenience, as they  have absolutely no knowledge of any  circumstances connected with tlie case.  This is obviously a move on the part of  the company to keep president *Estes  away from the men in the hope that  they   will   become   disheartened   and  weaken during his absence.   Vice-president Massey. is now taking the place of  the president at Vancouver, and as he  is an extiemely capable man there is no  reason to suppose that the  cause will  suffer through any  underhand tactics  which  the  C.P.R. may adopt during  the enforced absence of the U-.B.R.E.  leader.  On the 24th instant, some eight of the  strikers who had returned to work at  Vancouver issued a tearful and wonderful document, to wit. the "strike secessionists' manifesto,'.' by which they  sought to justify their dishonorable  action on the ground that the strike  was unconstitutional. Those signing it  are styled departmental heads, although before the strike most of them  occupied very subordinate positions. It  seems strange that these unscrupulous  individuals should not have inquired  into the status of the strike until the  C.P.R. offered them'promotion and increased rates of pay to desert their  comrades. It is evident thev are no  loss to the U.B.R.E.; The theory that  the strike is an unconstitutional one is  easily, exploded, as the action of the  Vancouver division in calling a strike  was confirmed by President Estes' the  day following, which at once raised it  to a constitutional basis. In addition,  .the outside divisions unanimously approved and supported the step taken.'  The Empress of India sailed from  Vancouver foi-the sOrient, on the 24th  "instarit" witn:*~6'Sly^SOr'tOMif-of.���"blinker*  ciial, in place of 900, and 800 tons of  cargo lit place of 3,000.  Great congestion of freight is reported  at AVinnipeg, and over one hundred  loaded cars are standing in Moosejaw  and Rat Portage yards. A wire was  received yesterday stating that five  men who returned to work in the morning came out again in the afternoon.  The Nelson strikers' pay is still being  withheld, although the men at Revelstoke were paid promptly. The company has evidently made this stand to  induce the men to return to work but  it appears to be scarcely worthy of a  corporation of the wealth and standing  of the"C. P. R. ' '  A few m/en at Greenwood, Eholt and  Grand Forks have returned to work,  and it has been suggested that the  local men will shortly follow their example, but this is a mistake, as the  Nelson men are out to win. The five  Boundary men who returned to work  with one exception had not been nutated, although desirous of membership.  . Agent 1-lorstead of the local division  left lor Revelstoke yesterday evening  to confer with President Eatey_who_is  paying^flyingvisitrtlrere. ~= : '"'^  J. FT Massey of San Francisco, second  vice-president of the U.B.R.E., now  in Vancouver, states that the strikers  have the fight   practically   won,  and  TOWN AND DISTRICT NEWS  the  NELSON SUCCESS CLUB.  During the past week devotees of the  royal game of chess have had an opportunity of establishing their reputations  as exponents of a game which is known  to have captivated the greater minds of  both the present and the past. Following upon the steps of the great chess  =mnsters,=who=i"eeently=--niPt=atr=Montei  Carle, a tournament has been arranged  at the Success Club in which about  twenty members are taking part. Rev.  F. H. Graham and S. M. Brydges have  kindly offered first and second prizes.  The final games will be played some  time during the coming week.  Fraternity hall has been engaged for  the dance to be given on the 16th of  April. The committee has arrangements well under way, and a most enjoyable time is anticipated.  Preparations are being made for the  installing of tlie gymnasium. The apparatus was shipped from Toronto on  the 27th of last month, and is expected  to arrive at Nelson before the end of  next week.  The mock parliament will hold its  weekly session on Monday evening  next. " The debate on the taxation of  mines will be resumed and a division  on the compulsory arbitration bill is  expected. There will be an open meeting of the house on the 0th of April, to  which the public is cordially invited.  The affairs of the club are reported to  be in a satisfactory condition. Over  150 names are now on the membership  roll. It is hoped to increase this number to 200 before the first of May.  Major-general Sir Hector Macdonald.  commanding tbe British forces in Ceylon, committed suicide in Paris on  March 25th. He was on his way to  England to answer charges based on  alleged immoral acts.  AVhittaker Wright, the man who  wrecked the London & Globe Corporation, and incidentally did great harm  to the mining industry nf British Columbia, is in jail in New York awaiting  extradition papers from London.  The Week's Happenings at the  Hub of  Kootenays Briefly Told.  J. A. Mills, deputy registrar, is receiving the congratulations of his friends.  It is a fine boy, born March 20th.  R. W. Day and Mrs. Day expect to  leave Nelson for Vancouver, where they  will reside' in future, in about two  weeks.  Harry Wright, mining recorder is at  home suffering from a severe attack of  typhoid fever. His many friends wish  him a speedy recovery.  Alderman Bird is now able to get  about on, crutches, aud expects that  without accident he will be all right  again in a couple of weeks.  Jacob Dover, the premier jeweler of  Kootenay, who has been in business in  Nelson since 1890, is arranging to dispose of his business. Mr. Dover has  many friends in Nelson ��� more than  some of the men who are crowding him  have.  Shackleton &.Simpson will this week  complete the marble cutting for the  "Father Pat" memorial fountain to be  erected in Rossland. This marble  comes from their own quarries near  Nelson and is of a quality which dispels  the idea that the only good marble  comes from the Atlantic seaboard. The  granite for the monument is to he quarried and cut in Rossland.  The surplices and cassocks for the  choir of St. Saviour's church have been  received from England, and the choir  will be vested for the first time on  Easter day. A contract for the new  seats for the choir has been given to  Mr. Hepburn. The 5 o'clock daily services during Lent continue to ,be well  attended. There are vacancies for two  tenors, and anyone wishing to join the  choir will apply to the rector.  ,-,  What might have been a serious  accident, but which only resulted in a  laughable incident, happened to Mr.  Sullivan's class at the Nelson school  yesterday. , The class, was nicely arranged on the school steps, teacher  looking his prettiest in the middle, and  the photographer all. ready, when the  steps gave way���and great was the fall  thereof. As there were eight or nine  steps, the result might have been'seri-  ous, but fortunately, np_ one was1 hurt.  The class adjourned to-the 'other-side  of the building and the picture was  taken without further trouble.  II. McLeod, secretary of the Alberta  Coal & Coke Company, Limited, has received a report from ATm. Blakemore,  mining and consulting engineer, Montreal/upon the property of the company, which is situated near Cowley,  Alberta, and consists of 0,400 acies.  Mr. Blakemore says that six seams  have been fullv uncovered ;vs follows:  No. L 14 feet thick; No. 2, 21 feet  thick; No. 3, 31 feet thick; No. 4, 8  feet thick; No. 5, 7>i feet thick; No. 6,  14 feet thick. The coal is all bitumen-  ous and cokes well. Some of tbe seams  are exceptionally good for blacksmith's  purposes, and others yield good steam  and domestic coal.  NELSON CITY COUNCIL.  The mayor and aldermen Kirkpatriek,  Irving, Gilker, and Selous were present  at the council meeting on Monday last.  Alderman Bird was absent owing to a  badly sprained leg, and presB of business in the freight department of the  C.P.R. prevented alderman Hamilton  attending.  Letters were read regarding the city's  issue of debentures, and it was decided  Drummond & Co. of Montreal should  have the option of tlie whole issue until  the end of June at 98 per cent.  Mayor Rose brought up the question  of leasing land on the lake front to  squatters until the city wanted to use  the land.  Alderman Selous opposed. He said  the land in question had always been  thought of as suitable for lead works or  other industries coming to the city.  The people living in the shacks had  been given notice to leave long ago, and  should move into the city and pay for  their privilege like other citizens.  The general opinion was expressed by  other aldermen that no leases should be  given, but that care should be taken  not to inflict any unnecessary hardship  in enforcing the vacation of the land.  Moved by alderman Kirkpatriek, seconded by alderman Gilker, thatE. M"ac-  Gregor's services as city scavenger be  dispensed with, and that H. J. Symes-  be requested to drive one of the scavenger wagons and act as sanitary in-'  spector. ,   .  Alderman Selous opposed.   He said  it was a mistake to reduce the sanitary  force at this time of theyear, as owing    ���  to  the heavy snowfall much rubbish  had accumulated in the alleyways.  Alderman Irving said three men were  at present doing work which could be  easily managed by two.  After a warm discussion, in which all  the council took part, the motion  was  carried, alderman Selous voting against.  On motion it was carried unanimously that water and light 'should  be ^cut \  off after six weeks' payments were,due.  There  was a long discussion  on - the  city assessment question, in   which all  members of the council took*part." Alderman Irving wanted the appointment  of an assessor who would  carefully go  over -the  rolls   and   make   necessary ,  alterations.. Alderman Selous thought _ ,  the;assessments   were too'..*high/*'-arid'..},-'  wanted- a   reduction, of.  25.per--cent.I'D,  Mayor Rose was opposed  totliis," and"v- *"  .the matter ended  by alderman Irving_v,  suggesting  that the   motion   be   held  over until* the next   council  meeting,  which was agreed to. ,  U. S. COAL COnniSSIONERS* REPORT.  The following are,the practical results of the labors of the coal commissioners:  .Ten per cent increase for miners,  pumpmen, engineers, and firemen.

Busk and Heathcote have  established an emporium for the production and encouragement of pheasants, Mr. Heathcote being general  manager and superintendent. Mr.  Busk lately brought from the Coast a  cock and two Mongolian hen pheasants,  and it is expected in the near future  that they will be enabled to supply any  number of these dainty birds to Kootenay connoiseurs. A number of the  sportsmen of Nelson, Mr. J. H. Van-  stone acting as secretary, have subscribed sufficient funds, and purchased  wild rice seed, which will be sown all  along the water front on the north  shore of the lake. They are also  negotiating for a supply of pheasants  and quails which will be placed out  under tbe care of ranchers who are  willing to assist in looking after the  birds until such time as they get acclimatized.

It is needless to say  that men who profess to be Conservatives, but who state that they will vote  for the Liberal party nominee if everything done is not done the way they  want it done, will probably find that  their influence is of little account.  There are probably twenty such men in  Nelson. The one other district in which  the people of Nelson are interested is  Ymir. In the district are the towns of  Kitchener, Creston, Sirdar, Ymir,  Salmo, Erie, Waneta, and the City of  Trail. It also includes the Bogustown  and Hume additions to the City of  Nelson and all that part of Slocan riding on the north side of Kootenay river  from Balfour to Robson, as well as all  of the Rossland riding in West Kootenay west of the Columbia river between the international boundary line  <and a line two miles north of Nakusp.  It is the most important district in  Kootenay, and the largest in area. Its  ���voting strength will be about 1,200,  one-half of which will be in Trail and  Ymir and the towns and mines adjacent  to these two places. The other half  will be on the line of the Crow's Nest  railway, on the north side of Kootenay  river, in Fire Valley, iu the additions to  Nelson, and in the mines adjacent to  Nelson. The man who gets the nomination in Ymir riding of the Conserva  tive party will not only need to be a  good man, but a hustler. He will have  to show that he can be fair to all sections of the district in the expenditure  of appropriations * and what man carries  the nomination in his vest pocket?" The  Conservative rank and file, resident in  Ymir district will nominate the mail,  and the nomination will not be dictated  by the small bunch of politicians who  meet in a card-room in the Nelson Club.  There is an element in Nelson���and  the element is represented in the city  council by alderman Selous���who want  to make it appear that Nelson is riot  worth what its assessment roll says it  is worth." They wane to cut down the  assessed value of teal estate, but they  do not publicly give their reasons for  so doing. This element is very "sore"  because Nelson has been able to borrow  $150,000, to be expended in erecting a  civic.power plant, without in any way  decreasing the limit of the city's borrowing power. Had the $150,000 been  borrowed on a basis of taxation on real  estate, the city would have been pretty  hear up to the limit of its borrowing  capacity. But if the assessed value of  real j*state isi-educed 25 per_ct,Mit.^as  alderman Selous advocates, the end  aimed at by the element alderman  Selous represents in the council will  have been gained. The limit of the  city's borrowing capacity will have  been reached, and the people who want  to see Nelson go ahead will have their  hands tied. The Beer Party thus hope  to gain by indirect methods what they  cannot gain by direct methods. Property in Nelson should be assessed at a  fair value and no favors shown anyone.  In order to get such an assessment, the  city council will have to appoint some  one as assessor who knows something  about real estate values and the value  of improvements. Such a man should  be selected and appointed as soon as  possible. There has been altogether  too much shilly-shallying and wabbling  over the matter, and the shilly-shallying  and wabbling has been done by four  men the people of Nelson expected better things from. Last year thousands  of dollars in real estate taxes were not  paid because of the needless delays in  preparing the assessment and tax rolls.  This should not happen again this year,  and it will not happen if mayor Rose  and aldermen Gilker and Irving and  Kirkpatriek get down to business on  Monday night next and appoint an  assessor, and then see to it that he does  his duty. If the Beer Party element  do  not like the valuation   placed  on  their property by the assessor, then let  them appeal to the courts as they  threaten to do. It is up to mayor Rose  and the three aldermen above named to  do their duty, leaving the three Beer  Party aldermen to do the "kicking."  The Trout Lake Topic says The Tribune did not make out a, case against  the    Provisional     Provincial    Mining  Association.   The Tribune did not try  to make out a case against the association. , It merely  indicated what the  creators of the association   would attempt to do were they given a free  hand.     The men responsible  for  the  creation of the mining association want  to   work   Chinese   and   Japanese   in  hydraulic mines.   If crown grants can  be obtained for -hydraulic ground  they  will be able to do so.   Others, again,  want to repeal the penalty clause of  the eight-hour law.   They did not dare  to show their hand in the convention,  however.     The  Rossland   pessimistic  mine-manager failures,   aided  by the  few remnants of what is left of that  notorious but dead Kootenay organization,    the   Mine Owners' Association,  had much to say about the unfairness  of the 2 per cent tax, but the convention could not see where the tax was  either   burdensome   or   unfair.   -It is  claimed that politicians were not allowed to control the convention.   John  Keen of Kaslo is president.   Keen may  not be a politician, but has he not hankered after the fleshpots?    D. W. Higgins of Victoria is the second vice-president.  Has David never held a political  office in his life?   A. L. Belyea of Victoria is the secretary.   He may not be  a politician,   but has   he not   been  a  standing candidate for office inVictoria?  Mr. Hobson of Cariboo,  the first vice-  president, and Mr. Fraser of Victoria,  the treasurer, are not politicians in the  sense that they have been office-seekers.   The Tribune will accord the Provincial Mining Association a full mea  sure of credit when it has done something deserving of praise;   but,   until  then, it reserves to itself entire liberty  of conscience. .  A, TEMPERANCE  STORY  Many years ago one of Washington's  old and most respected citizens, named  George Savage, became an ardent enthusiast on the subject of temperance,  and unquestionably accomplished a  great deal of good. He organized outdoor meetings, and generally located  them at the plaza fronting the bank  buildings at Seventh stret-t and Pennsylvania avenue or on the steps of the  interior department. He had a small  corps of "spellbinders" to entertain the  gathering crowd. Amoug these was an  Irish shoemaker named Donovan, and  his part-in the programme was to  relate his experiences with the flowing  bowl, and the funny incidents connected with his debauches, says the Washington (D. C.) Post". Pie was an entertaining fellow, with the, gift of gab. It  was a difficult contract on the part of  Savage to keep the Irish orator sober  for the night's performances; oftentimes he would wind up behind the  bars at the station house.  One night.strolling along the avenue  in company with several friends^ including Charles F. Brown, the .rner'ry  delineator and lecturer, known to the  world aB "Artemus Ward,'' we halted  to listenJ;o the sh}dge^ajnmer^argu-_  Ttheiitsofour^Jrish-orator on the evils  pf intemperance, addressed to a good-  sized crowd.  Ward, in his persuasive way, and  quaint mannerism, inquired of the  speaker whether he might be permitted  to make an inquiry, for your subject  commands my most profound attention.  Consent was read'ly given. Mr. AVard  commenced:  "While en the subject of monumental  jags, imported and domestic, can you  inform us what the atmospheric pressure on the brain is, from a scientific standpoint? What controls the  physical equilibrium from a perpendicular attitude to a longitudinal condition? The ablest philosophers of the  known world stand aghast in their  efforts to fathom this exasperating  problem. In fact, some of them are  still standing on one foot yet. Can  such things be and overcome us like a  summer's cloud without our special  wonder? Well, I should say not.  Therefore, if this be thus as a student  of the frailties of mankind, I ask you  if why is which, wherefore dost it?"  The speaker, who had listened attentively seemed nonplussed for a moment  and finally said: "I fail to catch the  drift of the gentleman's question.'!  "Pardon me," said Mr. Ward, "if I  fail to make myself understood. The  signers of the Declaration of Independence contemplated this important subject with a fixed gaze. Why the front  and side walls of our "goals and insane  asylums are bulging out in providing  for the jags who are afflicted with the  prevailing epidemic of bending the  elbow, or drinking between drinks.  This is an undisputed fact, evidenced  by the  preponderating   testimony of  unborn, generations, who have been  there themselves. Conclusively speaking, the question of equilibrium and  ground and lofty tumbling is agitating  the most profound thinkers when they  discover that they do not know which  side of the street they resideon. Therefore, we pause for a reply."  The temperance speaker winked at  Ward, and, turning to his audience,  said: "You will please excuse me,"  and dismounting from his perch, extended his hand to Ward, and said:  "Young fellow, what the devil is the  use of your and my casting pearls before swine* "True, true, my. old Cas-  tilian," said Ward, and taking him  by the arm and leading; him by  the arm and lead him toward the  Metropolitan Hotel bar, "we will  lubricate and drive dull care away.'.'  George Savage's lieutenant .had cut another starter.  SHERIFFS SALE.  B^  Province of British Columbia,  Nelson, West Kootenay.

TIMOTHY HAY'S REMARKS  James Dunsmuir haa assumed a new  role, that of a valiant gladiator who in-,  tends to free British Columbia from the i  thraldom of unionism. He is going to  wipe out the miners' unions at his collieries, as a beginning. When that is  accon-plibhed, he will likely look for  more worlds (or rather unions) to conquer, as most gladiators do. The trouble  with Mr. "Dunsmuir is that he ha8  untaken a very large contract and will  not he able to deliver the goods. Men  who have been more unscrupulous tind  were possessed of a, greater so-called  shrewdness in business than Mr. Dunsmuir has, have tried to annihilate labor  unions before, but their finish was not  such as they expected. Their curves  fell a little short of the home phue.  Even Bernard Macdonald, the erstwhile  manager of. the Leltoi at .Rossland and  a great fighter, found that out after it  liad cost theLeRoi company $100,000.  That angel of peace who represents  the department of labor, W. L. Mackenzie King, after a vain endeavor to  extend the olive branch at Fernie, has  come and gone. Not that there is anything strange in his coming and going,  because that is about all the government wishes him to do, about all he  expects to do, and about all he does do.  Mr. King is one of those college-bred  labor freaks who have as much influence in settling a labor, dispute as a  tomcat would have in settling a dogfight. To the western mind he seems  to be as much out of place in his present billet as the proverbial hull in the  china shop. Neither employers nor  employees regard him very seriously;  besides, he is about as indiscreet, in regard to his own importance and also  that of the department of labor, as the  latter could wish to avoid. In other  words, he talks too much. Mr. King's  time might be more profitably employed in the preparation of government blue books, which are of great  service for wrappers for country newspapers, and if issued in large quantities  might go a long way towards relieving  the coal famine. They are dry and  burn well.  Any person addicted to the habit of  reading the Daily News would think  the Crow's Nest miners had been making -.too',.'much' money and wanted a  vacation^and therefore did not wish to  settle the strike. An old saw says:  "livery day will be Sunday bye and  bye." Perhaps the News thinks that  period has now arrived. In view of the  decisive result,of the vote taken by the  miners on the question of returning to  work, it might, be well to hear what the  miners say before dconemning them.  For being a grand political fraud and  would-be vote-catcher, let me commend  the department of labor at Ottawa. In  its efforts to be dramatic the department is ably assisted by its jack-in-the-  box deputy, William Lyon Mackenzie  King, whose official doings seem to be  be most remarkable for what he does  not do. The members of the Liberal  government take great pride in informing trade unionists as to the great  things the department of labor is doing  for them. It is a fraud on the unionists and a greater fraud on the public,  in that it takes a lot of good money to  continue the farce. The only feature in  the entire department calling for commendation is the "fair wage" provisions  caused to be inserted in all government  contracts, whether it is making mail  bags or building post-offices. This provides for the payment of the prevailing  rate of wages in each locality where  there are government contracts. The  alien labor law cannot even be said to  mean well, in that eminent prestidigitators of the law declare it is not  workable and nevety^ was^J^tended,  =to=be  =It^is~quite true that a  man named Geiser, an Oregan strikebreaker, was fined on two counts by the  police magistrate For violations of the  act at Rossland a year and a half ago.  On appeal these fines were affirmed,  not onthe question of the validity of  the law, but on technical grounds.  Until the Liberal government pass a  few labor measures of merit, such as  will be a real benefit to those whom  they |endeavor to cajole, the less the  Liberals say about the department of  labor the better. If the government is  really sincere in friendship for unionists, it might show it in a different  manner to what it has done in regard  to amendments to the trade marks and  designs act.  The Province will next week be treated to another act in the operatic tragedy  in many scenes entitled "The Legislative Assembly.'' Joe Martin as usual  will take the heavy villain leads, aided  y Big. McBride and a host of lesser  tar performers. With several members of the chorus who have not been  able to find themselves since premier  Prior started to lead the show, those  who have been looking forward to a  summer trip to Newport or Long  Branch at the expense of an aspiring  and willing candidate are somewhat in  doubt. Will the legislative solons  please decide quickly as to who is "on  shift." Timothy Hay.  SEWING MACHINES an.

NELSON NEWS NOTES.  August Thomas of the Lakeview hotel  is laid up with a sprained ankle.  R. F. Green, M.P.P., of Kaslo, passed  through Nelson on Thursday on his  way to Slocan City, thence to the Coast.  Melville S. Parry is wearing a smile  of extra breadth'this week, the arrival  of the third boy being the cause thereof. Weight upwards of ten pounds;  arrived March 26th.  Mrs. J. A. Paquette left Nelson this  week to join Mr. Paquette at Seattle,  where he has been for three months  with the Western Union Telegraph  Company. There i_ quite a Nelson colony in Seattle, and all are doing well.  John A. Turner and Mrs. Turner are  now in Toronto. Mr. Turner writes  they will leave early in April and expect to arrive in Nelson about the first  of May. Rev. J. H. White and Arthur  Ferland were in Toronto last week.  Owners, of crown-jfranted mineral  claims forget that their lands are subject to taxation the same as are any  other lands. The assessor for Nelson  division this week advertises the sale  of 123 of these claims for taxes. The  sale willalso be the burial of several of  the wildcat companies of 1S96-7 which  mostly had their lairs in Rossland and  found their victims among those eastern  Canadians who thought there were  quicker ways of getting rich than by  selling wheat and sending their milk to  the cheese factory.  in the death of sheriff Stephen Redgrave at Golden, British Columbia has  lost one of her unique men. Born near  Manchester, England, he lived in Australia, the'United States, and Canada.  Coming to British Columbia twenty  years ago, he was soon appointed to the  provincial police force, and from that  force was appointed mining recorder  and sheriff for Kootenay. When the  southern portion of Kootenay began to  fill up with prospectors, Mr. Redgrave  was made sheriff of North Kootenay.  He was a fine specimen of the man,  generous to a fault, and could tell the  most remarkable stories of his experiences.
