 iEtwtme  THE TRIBUNE IS THK OLDEST  NEWSPAPER  PRINTED   IN  THE  KOOTENAYS  Saturday, October 24, 1Q03  NELSON  IS THE TRADE CENTER OF SOUTH-  EASTERN BRITISH COLUMBIA  THE GREATEST POLITICAL SPEECH OF THE DAY  "Is Britain to be numbered among the decaying states? Has  all the glory of the past to be forgotten ? Have we to prove ourselves nuregenerate..sons' of the forefathers who left us so glorious an inheritance? Are we to be a decaying state? Are the  efforts of all our sous to be fritted awa}'? Are all their sacrifices to be vain ? or are we to take up a new youth, as members  of a great empire, which will continue for generation after generation, the strength, the power, the glory of the British race?"  ���Mr. Chamberlain at Greuock, Oct. Sth.  The tremendous interest displayed iu Great Britain, and for  that matter throughout the Empire, in Mr. Chamberlain has  scarcely been paralleled since the repeal of the Corn Laws-, close  on sixty years ago. - His policy for -Greater'Britain for the  British, bequeathed to him by the late Cecil Rhodes, has aroused a strong spirit of antagonism from the Cobdeu Free Trade  school of political thought, and the fight for supremacy will be  long aud bitter.  To give some idea of the eagerness of the people of Glasgow  to hear this great speech, it is stated that over seventy:thousand:;  sought the opportunity and that over, seven'thousand took seats:;-  in the hall at one in the afternoon." and waited patiently till  eight. Speaking of the speech, a contemporary says: "Those  who were privileged to listen to this deliverance .heard a proiiuu-  ciamento whicli meets the highest anticipations entertained with  regard to it and is destined to rank as the most courageous of  modern days."  In his opening remarks, Mr. Chamberlain said he was in the  city of Free Trade, the home of Adam Smith, whom it was not  giveii to foresee the altered conditions. . He paid a high tribute*-  to his- -friend and colleague! Mr. Balfour, witli-''whom lieis'"a't  variance on this question. . Lesser lights iu the political firmament may well 'ponder over this and realize how great minds  rise above the miserable pettiness of "provincialism."  The two great objects of his policy are defined as: (i) The  maintenance aud increase of the national strength and the prosperity of the United Kingdom. (2) The creation of an empire  such as the;world has..never seen, j He asks that the matter be  "considered on its own merits, frefe from personal'feelings'and  bitterness, aud if possible, without entering into questions of  purely party controversy.. !        ,-���/,' . ..:';y  He made a splendid simile in rejferring to the departed' commercial glory of Venice, once the mart of; Europe, and','calfed attention to the unsavory fact that English trade was. blithe down  grade, as evidenced by the following figures:   **        ' ";^;      v/.-y  Exports to foreign countries 1S72, ^__6,odo,oboy.v:  K .  188.2,   ���   58;poo,obo"p .Cv  1892, "   75,000,000 '������'''  1902,       73,009,000  Tliere is thus a loss in trade of '^4-3,000,090 during- the past  thirty 3'ears gathered from statistics that are incontestible.  The point, of course, that Mr. .Chamberlain emphasizes is the  vital one_that England is fast^^ hecoming the dum  surplus stocks from protective countries.'1 In support of4his he'  gives an illustration of the inteutions of the United States Steel  Company to capture the steel market of Great Britain, at any  cost. The company can do this and thus keep its' production at  the present enormous rate, far beyond the normal requirements.  This being the largest corporation in the wot Id,--its'" policy may  be  taken as an indication of what all other "trust" concerns  Opinions on Alaskan  cBoundary  cAivard  The following cable has been received  by premier Laurier from Hon. Clifford  Sifton nnd was read in the house Wednesday morning:  "Loudon, October 20.���Laurier, Ottawa.  Award was signed today by lord chief  justice Alverstone, and commissioners  Root, Lodge, and- Turner, being under  treaty a binding majority. The line commences at cape Muzon and goes direct to  the southern entrance of the channel between Wales and Sitka islands, proceeding northward between said islands to  mouth of tlie Portland channel, then  along the middle of Portland channel to  its head. From there the line is formed  by going from peak to peak of the mountains, the distance from tidal water varying from 10 to 80 miles, speaking generally. Then opposite Thomas bay the line  stops and is undefined from there to a  point about 15 miles from the head of  Taku inlet. Thenco it follows the peaks  of mountains about northwestward to the  white Pass. It follows the summits of  White and Chillkoot Passes, theuce by  the peaks of mountains to Mount Fair-  weather, and passes close to the police station situated near the JKlohini river. On  this part of its course the line will be from  eight to twenty miles north of the provis-  onal boundary line. ' From Mount Fair-  weather it follows a fairly direct course to  the rear Ytikutut bay, and thence from  peak to peak by a' somewhat circuitous  routo to Mount St. Elias. A marked map  follows tomorrow (Signed) Sifton."  A   NELSON   OPINION.  The hue and cry that has gone up from  the press throughout the Dominion over  the decision of the tribunal was tq be expected as it was justified. It may be said,  .however, that with, the majority of Canadians the loss of a-few islands along the  Britisli Columbia. c��ist is;;as nothing compared with the grating annoyance' on the  patriotic nerves through the screeching of  the American eagle which will follow in'  the wake of the announcement.  There is A foeling, on this side of the  '49tli parallel,'. not necessarily of an unfriendly nature, tovrards the United States  that it is not good four that- far from developed land to carry everything before it.  There is danger in i__e intoxication that  follows a continual success unless balanced by that poise which comes from  long traditions. T_u-_*�� are clever nien in  that laud, men .who a��) very close to being called diplomats, but they are not numerous, iiltliough the average ambitious  commercial aspirant imagines that business acumen must, of necessity make good  material for suecessfnl statesmanship.

NELSON'S CLAIMS IGNORED I  ��� Advices received yesterday point to-the; absolute ignoring of the claims of this city *  X for representation in the cabinet.    Our niember is on the way home and full particulars f  ��� will be forthcoming* on Monday, Meanwhile it is in order for the citizens of Nelson, the ���  X third city in commercial importance of the province, to consider the fact that it is the X  X intention of Mr. McBride, probably with, the assistance of a nearby member and min- t  ��� ister, to  deny   us  our rights to representation in the government.    The question rises f  ��� above party feeling. It is a civic matter. The Liberal party was prepared for the X  X announcement that John Houston had been given the portfolio of lands and works and J  t was prepared to fight; but they were not prepared to hear that Nelson had been brushed *  f aside in order to make way for defeated members at the coast.    We echo the feeling of *  ��� '���  X the citizens of Nelson when we say that nothing short of a seat in the cabinet will satisfy f  ��� '.���.''/ ���  X their political aspirations���alike on the grounds of her commercial importance and of t  ���  ���  ���  ���  the eminent fitness of her present representative.  +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++^++++*+^++*+*+++*+^++++*+^++^++++++^++++++++++^i  __��� crisis in the work of cabinet forma  tion'has been reached' and John Houston  has left V.ictoria iu .disgust. .No details  are as yet forthcoming, but a forecast of  ���what has probably happened is outlined  as follows by the Times:  Premier McBride is still confined to his  home through sickness: In the meantime  the affairs in; connection with his government are becoming'more and more complicated. JOhn Houston; who cannot be  called 'a humble supplicant, still awaits  tlie receiving "of^Muiself ..'into.'s'theyfoldr  Meanwhile'his enemies in the cabinet' are-  usjngth.ii'Vbest"endeavor to shut Mr.  Houston>'���'��� off. ���':Their' ;'e*ff orts now show  soine sign's of ���'; succeeding. Lillcoet may  be reopened'and'a'seat found thereby for  Hon A. E." McPhillips.   This has hot been  litical ability, that leads to tlie higher.and  .nipre refined platform where "graceful diplomacy'i-gulaies'the destiny of nations:  Meanwhile'.there is far more to do in internal matter- than tlie Republican advocates' of aii imperialism copied from Great  Britain are'disposed to' admiti They prefer to'close/their eyes to the internal-  trobies that will'arise' from the coming  downfall Of a false commercial prosperity  built on the shifting sands of a might that  tramples on the fight and builds its marble halls at-the' cost of the life-blood of  the toilers of the land. They prefer to ignore the great question of that satanic in:.  iquity, "the trust," whicli will have to  be dealt with, andtbus pass the time lulling themselves into fancied security by  actiohs abroad 'calculated to arouse interest jri.niat'tersjbeytiu'd^  Alaska, the' Phillipines of in the East.  '" Therefore is it tO.be deplored for the  sake of the republic to the south of us as  well as for ourselves that the decision of  this tribunal is what it is. It has set up  an irritation in Canada that will be hard  to sooth and will most-certainly act as a.  bar to any further _o-called arbitrations if  as has been well 'put by a -London paper,  "Canada is to be sacrificed on the altar, of  American friendship."  Time alone, the great healer, will heal  this wound and it is to be hoped for the  sake of tho American friendship, which  the government of Great Britain appears  to value just now at beyond rubies, that  our neighbors will not bo carried away  with the false glamour of momentary success, nor imagine that thoy are called upon to carry on a Cacser-likc campaign  around the world with the object of imitating tho Greater Britain concept, when  their own internal affairs require an adjustment which will tax the powers of the  combined foremost politicians of that  great country for many many years to  come. '*'    '.. Waxdkkkk.  ���    ���   'A   SPOKANIC   OPINION.  Our Canadian friends are taking the decision of the boundary commission more  to heart than the occasion warrants.  They are talking about losing slices of  territory and are intimating that something must be done if the entire Dominion  is not to be given away piecemeal. As a  matter of fact, they have gained territory  instead of losing it.  From the tone of the adverse comments  passed by Canadians ou the work of the  tribunal, one might think that a large  stretch of territory, loug owned, populated  and governed by-, the Dominion, had  slippetl from their, grasp. Were this the  case, there would-be reason for complaint  that Canadian interests had been sacrificed  by turning Dominion people and property  over to an alien sovereignty. But nothing  of this sort has taken place. The title to  a stretch of territory that has always been  regarded as American and governed by  the United States is now finally vested in  the United States by international agree-  ment. All that the majority of the  boundary commission has done is to accept as correct the conditions that have  practically existed since the United States  acquired Alaska from Russia.   The Can-  finally decided upon, but the agitation is  on foot. Archibald McDonald the road  boss, who was returned by acclamation,  will likely be.asked to confine his attention to road affairs and make place fora  more useful man for the party. Mr. McPhillips is most commonly spoken of for a  sekt, though the name of D. M: Eberts is  also mentioned, which would pre-suppose  that the old attorney-general may be  found absolutely necessary in the government of Mr. McBride.  It is not supposed for a moment that  ::these-_��la*_t meet with.the approval of-.Mr.'  Houston; or that the member for. Nelson,  will lend any aid" to his friend Mr. .McPhillips. The premier, when able to- get  0114 again, will-have a handful of trouble  reconciling the conflicting elements.  To those best able to judge, liot.a doubt  adians themselves accepted these conditions until a few years ago, and there is  really no warrant for the doleful assertion  that a large, slice of cherished Canadian  territory has been torn fronvthem.���Spokesman Review.  "Fighting Mac" a Victim of Slanderers.  "He who steals iny money, steals trash,  'Tis mine; 'tis his, it has been the slave of thousands.' -.''���..  But he who niches from me my good name,  Robs me of that which not enriches him and  leaves me poor fntleed."  ��� When general sir Hector Macdonald,  the hero of many battles, took his own life  in a Paris hotel last March, the world assumed that it was the deed of a guilty  niiiu^ whose^sins^had-^found ^him-^outr^  Charges of gross immorality had been  brought against him. He had travelled  from Ceylon to England to confer with  the commander-in-chief on the subject,  arid was on his way back when, in his  hotel in Paris,' he read in the newspapers  that the nature of the charges had been  made public. Then he went to his room  and shot himself.  "Of course," said the censorious world,  "if he had been innocent ho would have  faced his accusers and put them to confusion. He killed himself because he realized that he wns a ruined man, and preferred to die rather than endure the infamy in store for him as a convicted criminal."  But it seems that the world's judgment  was wrong. A commission has beeu investigating the charges against Macdonald and it lias issued its report summing  up tho results of its investigations. This  report states "that there is no visible  particle of truth for the foundation of  any charge of crime;" that "the late sir  Hector Macdonald has beeu cruelly assassinated by vile and slandorous tongues,"  and that the stories to his discredit were  "prompte_. by feelings of spite and jealousy."  The mistake made by the world was  owing to its iuability to appreciate the  quality of a soldier's sense of honor.  When poof Macdonald learned that the  horrible charges against him were the  theme of current gossip���that his name  was being spoken with loathing by thousands of tongues and with ribaldry liy  thousands more���that even though ho  could establish his innocence, he could  never outlive the shame of being put on  his defence against such charges, is it any  wonder that his despair was so great as to  drive him to siiieido'. He had risen from  the ranks and his honor as an officer and  a gentleman viis his most precious possession. He felt his honor to besmirched by  oven a suspicion of a crime on his part;  he had "lost -M'- immortal part of himself"���his refutation. Life he felt was  uot worth living, and in his frenzy he  ended it.  It is easy to say that it would have been  far wiser and iirnver to have faced the  remains as to the result. Mr. McBride  will not reconcile them. He will have to  make up his mind as to whether or not he  will be dominated by Mr. Houston".  y It can only end in one way. To. deny  Mr. Houston will be to wreck his chance  of retaining power, while Mr. Houston's  enemies in the party hold out no hope by  giving away to that gentleman  ;The government at its approaching session,., which   opens   November 2Gth, are  .'planning,-it is said, no exhaustive measures involving, questions of policy.   They  ^wiUt-eek^it-ls.-u^  financial needs alone.-v A loanis suggested as offering the most convenient > methods of overcoming the trouble. A short  session with this purpose in view, followed by a recess until about the regular  time, of meeting, will be attempted:  faced the charges and.lived down the disgrace of them. Sir Hector would perhaps  have realized this, and lived, if he had  thought over the situaliou for an hour or  two. But it is hard.for a man in a frenzy  ot despair to think out a problem coolly���  and then, there was his service revolver  at hand, with its easy, quick solution of  . the problem.  And so one more is added to the roll of  noble and heroic men and women who  were "done to death with slanderous  tongues, "whom the world once spoke of  with scorn, but whose names have gathered fresh lustre from the pity whicli is  awakened by the pathos and tragedy of  their history.���Rossland Miner.  An Advertising Suggestion.  EditoirTfibuh_^Will youkindly allow"  me through your paper to place before the  farmers and fruit growers a scheme for  the advancement of our province. The  advantages of British Columbia as a place  for settlers are very little known, and it  cannot be denied that where printed matter will often pass unheeded the object  itself will arrest attention.  My proposition, therefore, is to collect  samples of roots, fall and winter fruits,  etc., to be forwarded to Great Britain.  Here they could remain for n certain time  on exhibition iu thc large towns aud afterwards be distributed among the hospitals and such like other institution's where  they would no doubt bo highly appreciated. I would suggest printing a list of  the donors together with particulars of  the fruit, etc., which each contributes, so  that intending settlers might, if they so  desired, obtain information about any particular locality from a resident. By this  means it might also be possible to open  up fresh markets for our fruit aud introduce capital. I would esteem it a favor if  intending donors of produce would kindly give probable weight and class of sample when communicating with me, in order to facilitate arrangement for collection.   Yours truly,  W. V. Lkonahi), J.P.  Salmon Arm, B. C.  [In the main Mr. Leonard's suggestion  is good. Any scheme having in view the  drawing of attention of possible emigrants in the old land to the advantages  of this district is worthy of consideration.  In this case it i.s doubtful, however, if it  can be made practical. The expense of  sending all this might be trifling, but unless tliere is some systematic arrangement  to have all these specimens attended to  and placed where they would be seen, the  value would be problematical. It will be  far more to the point if the combined  Horticultural Societies make a strong effort to have a tip top display next year at  thu World's Fair, St. Louis, where it will  l)e seen by millions of people from all  over the earth.���Ed.]  across  the  border  will  do  when the home demand begins to  "peter out."  As an offset to all this and to place Great Britain on the same  footing as other protective countries, Mr. Chamberlain proposes'  to place the following duties on all importations from foreign  ���-lands: Two shillings (50c) a quarter of 8 bushels on wheat;  five per cent on all meats and dairy products (excepting bacon),,  and ten per cent on all manufactured goods. "*  To balance this, and presumably to pacify the populace, he  suggests that three-quarters of the tea duty be taken off, half  the duty 011 sugar, _and  a  reduction  of  about that amount on ^  coffee and cocoa.  The estimated exchequer loss on all this outside manufactured'  goods is estimated at close to three millions of sterling, but the  revenue estimated to be derived from the new ten per cent duty  will realize over.nine millions.    Thus Mr. Chamberlain sets at.  rest any uneasiness that niight.be felt on the loss of  revenue .  score  by  reason  of free  importations from the colonies, for it  must be well understood that his scheme embodies absolute free,'  trade as far as Great Britain is concerned with all parts of the'vl  Empire.  The  idea  crystalized  means that the whole Empire is to be  built up on the basis of commercial expansion and unity; that  hand in hand with useful, desirable territorial acquisition will-  go this commercial ideal, having for corner stone the equity of  all component parts of  this Greater Britain.   Tt will  make a  tremendously strong appeal to the masses in the three kingdoms  who see this advancing commercial wave of Americanism threat-*- .  ening to overwhelm them.    It is their salvation, for assuredly'Jl  tide great "trusts" of the States will swamp them in the effort to' "  capture trade wherever it can be had.    It is true  that - two. - attempts in this direction have apparently failed : one the case,off^  the American Tobacco Co., which ��� ultimately absorbed Ogden's-^l  and  the  Imperial  Tobacco . Co., and has made peace-���wit^-Ke^j  others.    The  other  was  the International Mercantile ManneVl;!]  but here Mr. Pierpont Morgan was attempting whatyany^sclippl-|i|  rb'oy^migEt'^ave" t6ld'~hinr, that "rioTrust oii'"eWrffi"wilFever/l>e***  able to control the sea carrying trade.    The ocean is free to all,  for which, in these days we have much to be thankful for.  To us here in Canada, the policy outlined by Mr. Chamber- ���  lain is of far-reaching importance; its value as  a factor in ex- \  paiiding trade between Canada and the mother land can hardly* *  be overvalued.    The tremendous imports into Great Britain of -  dairy products and meats, now largely from France and Amer-C  ica, will be largely lessened and the tide directed toward* Canada, Australasia  and   Africa for  supplies  of  this kind.    The"  scheme will in its very essence appeal to all colonials and receive the moral support from one end  of  the Empire to  the  other.    The   Free Trade school will fight the suggestion to a  finish, but like King Canute of old, it will be no more able to  stem the advancing tide of a patriotic commercialism than a .  child  on the sea shore can p'revent__the__inconiing_ti_de,_w.asMng___l  away his castles on the sands. ���'������;  There is a future for the British Empire if governed by wise  council and ambition tempered with the condition that territorial  expansion entails corresponding responsibilties. Its stability  rests on the equitable adjustment of commercial intercourse  throughout its wide domain, and to this Mr. Chamberlain's  broad-minded policy unequivocally points.    May he achieve.  Good Reports From  Lardeau Properties  The Metropolitan Gold and Silver Mining company that is operating the Triune  mine above Ferguson, have had a remarkably good .summer, and, departing  from the plan of former years, they will  work the property all winter. They are  letting a contract for several hundred feet  of tunneling to develop the mine further  and thus open up new stoping ground.  This will give the company a chance to  make next summer a record breaker in  ore shipments. It is hoped to have the  tramway iu shape to handle the output by  the time they are ready to ship next year,  and that will greatly lessen the transportation costs. Thc Triuue looks good  though there wa.s a lot of fine ore taken  out this summer.  Thc Silver Cup has a large force at  work, most of which is working on the  outside getting ready for the winter and  preparing to ship on a large scale over the  new trams to the company's compressor  at Five Mile. Probably no mining company in British Columbia spent so much  money in development and installing new  machinery during the past season, a.s the  Silver Cup Mines, Ltd., but it is questionable if there is a better mining proposition in the province having silver-lead ore  than the same mine. Certainly no company i.s more deserving of good results  than this one, and few have better chances  of reaping big dividends. The Cup is a  remarkably good mine and is owned by a  company that is not afraid to spend niohoy  in order to obtain the best results.  The stamp mill of the Criterum-Ros_-  lnud mine at Camborne, although ready  for some weeks, has not been given a trial  run yet ou account of the delay in getting  iron pipes. Part of the necessary pipe  was received last week and the balance is  looked for any day. Development at;the"  mine is progressing steadily and a lot- of  high-grade ore is being blocked ont in  readiness for starting up the mill. There  is now enough ore blocked out to keep the  mill running all winter.  Ferguson Feeling Better.  Ferguson did not experience a growth  during the past season that came up to the  expectations, but the district made great  advancement. The season was very wet  and cold, some of the mining companies  did not start operations till late and several of our mining men were late returning from the outskle. Then, although  two sawmills were cutting steadily, the  output wns contracted for in advance by  the Silver Cup for use at Five Mile. There  will be a largely increased number of  men working iu the camp this - coming  winter nnd the town will be prosperous as  fur as one can judge in advance.���Lardeau Eagle.

The touching personal disinterestedness  |,displayed by our morning contemporary  .'in its campaign in favor of a new election  I'.might carry weight did not a large ma-  I?jority of the citizens see a little further  J than that journal is disposed to concede.  KOur only daily pretends to enlighten the  {^public on the general state of political af-  lifairs, and to offer as a solution to the president  position,   that a now election take  jlplace, feeling assured that the next time  ]'the Liberals will sweep the province.   It  does not offer auy particular reason why  |'this revulsion of feeling should come over  the public mind; nor are we told the rea-  [;son why a Conservative who has voted  1 for his party, is to turn round and vote  fora Liberal  candidate simply because  J'Dick McBride finds it a somewhat diffi-  1,'cult matter to arrange the personnel of  l.his cabinet.   There is far more reason in  ,|the assertion that a number of stray Con-  Ifseryative sheep who wandered from the  lifoldat the last election, will be inclined  I tin the next election to go .back and do  [their duty to their, party and leave per-  ���sonal matters to take care of themselves.  [lot course the defeated candidate for Kam-  1 loops is quite convinced that if he had an-  I Jother chance he would go in and like our  Ijbwii defeated candidate holds a well in-  I grained belief that a great mistake was  fide on the third instant.   The public  jlvnilVnbtfeel in the slightest way disposed  \M followthe Daily News' fancy- ideas in  this  matter, for  they merely echo the  I .shout that went up before the general  I election���-"Only give us a chance and the  |f-ionnfcrv will see."7 Yet the sum and.total  ]j__ the business was that the people of  J|British Columbia were by no means car-  rried away by the Liberal programme and  Hare now far from being intoxicated with  lithe idea that the solution of the present  I Apolitical grievances, is to hand the reins  Ibver to them.  A Bye-Election in Sight.  Failing  anything   definite    from   thc  .oast relative to the cabinet formation  Ijaow going ou tliere, tlio citizens were in-  r?ormed Thursday that iu tho event of our  J.nember being taken into the McBride  jbabinet, the- seat will lie contested.   It  Jlivill be presumed by most people that Sid-  Ipey Stockton Taylor will bo the Liberal  Ifjandidato and that, having well weighed  |[;he matter, is quite prepared lor another  lefeat.   Quite possibly an event of this  aature will not be such a very dreadful  iffair after all for there is strength iu  l.veakness in politics   when   a   possible  bench    appointment    is    hanging   like  i ripe  cherry.   The   citizens of Nelson  nay, therefore, anticipate another politi-  ;al contest at no distant date and it may  je taken for granted that a strong appeal  Ijvill be made to them to turn down our  present member.   Our morning contem-  l;"orary has been harping on the same key  or a week, namely, that the defeat of all  ���abinet ministers will mean stable gov-  I irnment for the province, such an event  j tpens   up   the   possibility   of   the   de-  I eated candidate for Kamloops becoming  L  factor  in provincial  politics and for  I vhi-h he thinks he is eminently fitted.  _s regards the people of Nelson there is  I lothing whatever to show that their opin-  I ons towards our member elect have all-red in the slightest  and while among  j ome, there is a slight irritation over the  .elay in announcing the cabinet, those  I j-ho know our representative, feel that it  is through no weakness of'his that this delay has occurred aud that when he returns it will bo made as clear as many  other matters he has been called upon to  explain.       .__  Qvic Bontising.  There is a great deal of theory indulged  in iu the discussion of the matter of bon-  using industries, but in actual practice it  is done far aud wide and today in Canada  there are hundreds of towns and villages  >ready to pawn their office furniture in  order to give a bonus to any undertaking  that will bring that greatest of all financial blessing to a straggling community���  a payroll. That these financial encouragements are not always done wisely and  well, there is abundant evidence; sometimes there is civic jobbery and others  there are not sufficient safeguards thrown  around the agreements made, with the result that a city wakes up, only to find that  it has sold its birthright for a mess of pottage. So far as Nelson is concerned, tbe  citizens have good reason to congratulate  themselves on being free frOm the dictates  of any corporation owning the utilities,  albeit it has only been by constant watchfulness that the Bonnington Falls Power  Company has been kept from barnacling  itself on this city. We have no industries  that have been actually bonused, either  directly or indirectly, although certain  concessions by way of taxes have been extended to some now operating. Application is about to be made on behalf of a  new lumber company for a site on the  lake shore, on which it undertakes to  erect and operate a mill giving employment to a hundred men. The estimated  cost of the site is $0000, and it is stated  that tho owners are indifferent whether  they come here or go to Kootenay Landing. This may be taken as truth, for after  all it matters very little where a lumber  mill is located so long as it has the rails  alongside. It will therefore be a matter  for discussion aniong the citizens, and  considerable debate thereon may be anticipated. The proposition resolves itself  into a clean cut business undertaking as  to whether it will pay the city to put up  ��6000 in exchange for a guaranteed payroll for a number of years of $100,000;  there is not the slightest doubt but that  the question will be answered overwhelmingly by the citizens in tho affirmative.  That Mining Association.  It will not come as a surprise to those  who have been watching closely the British Columbia Mining Association to hoar  that it has entered the political field and  will hereafter have to be considered as a  factor in provincial politics. That its usefulness as a wholesome organization of  business men having in view the advancement ot the mining industry of tbe province, will disappear goes without saying  and hereafter its membership will bo confined to the actual mine owners and their  satellites in the shape of bankers, brokers,  and tho inevitable lawyer. Tlio Victoria  Colonist accuses the Rossland Miner of  working hard for thc defeat of every Conservative candidate in sight, although it  is nominally admitted to be a Conservative paper. The reason for this is that  the Association which is strongly in evidence in the editorial chamber of the  mountain daily, gives no support to any  candidate who is in the slightest way  against the Association. The history of  the Kootenays affords abundant testimony  to the bad effect of the policy of political  intervention on the part of the mine owners, led by the large Rosslaud syndicate.  It has been the means of arousing antagonism between capital and labor, as witness iu tho case of the great Rossland  strike three years ago. It has alienated  sympathy from the masses of the people  towards the mine owners and done great  damage all round to the mining industry  of this particular district. That capital  in the mines should organise for its own  protection is well, nay necesrary; but  when, as has been the case, its councils  have bren guided by minds hardly equal  to the strain of dealing with problems of  capital and labor, irritation has resulted  and with what results residents in the  Kootenays know too well.    It may  be  after all, now that it is out, that it will be  all for the best, inasmuch as the public of  the upper country will uot feel disposed  place the slightest value on the usefulness  uf a hybrid of the nature of the British  Columbia Mining Association.  Kootenay Central Railway.  The Fort Steele Prospector is in high  gleo over the announcement that the  Kootenay Central Railway is in sight and  that before long this forty-four old settlement will kuow what it is to have a railway station. It is to bo hoped that it will  never regret it, for tliere are a good many  places on the limp of this continent loiliiy  which are pining for the good old bull  team days when wads of bills oozed from  top pockets of tho whackers and tho cow.'  boys kept things at fever heat over "Forty  Rod" and a little game of stud. This now  line promises to open up a new and attractive country already fuirly well sotted. It will extend from Elko to Golden  "on the main line of the C.P.R.; there is a  natural business obtainable in the agricultural and stock industries aud quite  possibly the stimulus it will give to the  miuing may bo the means of considerable  development work being taken up. Coal  has been found on tho Elk river and it is  mooted that the C.P.R. is after it; if it is  there, there is no reason why it should  not be fouud on the other rivers and the  line will arouse interest iu this direction.  From the poiut of view of Nelson, unless  freight rates are made in favor of some favorite point of the C.P.R., there is no reason why this city should not participate  in the wholesale trade that will spring up  even as far north as Golden. The line is  to get ijI'J-aOO a mile up to a cost of ��15,000  if it costs over this, fifty per cent of what  is over the last amount but not to exceed  ��0400 a mile. With this connecting link  the curtain falls on an interesting .bit of  history of the province, for it Avas at the  source of the great Columbia river that an  effort was made some years ago to connect, by way of a canal, with the' waters  of the Kootenay river and which are. na'  vigable from that point to Jennings, Montana. The attempt was the means of raising a question between the United States  and Canada,.through interfering with an  international river and was ultimately  abandoned.  f"Song Bird Immigration.^   y  The announcement that .the Victoria  Natural Hintory Society is about to import five hundred English song birds will  not be ��� received with unmixed delight by  the horticulturists of that- particular section of the province. There is the ' sentimental and the hard cold busiuess aspect  of this proposition; hardly a: person can  be found who is. not sympathetic to the  feathered tribe and one of the most' noticeable things the Old Countryman  misses when he takes his walk1 abroad in  this new land, is the absence of the  songsters of the "grove. No explanation  has so'far been authenticately given why  song birds are not found ou this side of  the Atlantic; a bare suggestion points to  the idea that they are the evolutionary  .product of lands that have been settled for  long centuries. We have a meadow lark  in the west and many a plea is now being  made to save him from obliteration, particularly in Califoruia; when lie is all but  annihilated then probably some effort will  be made ^o save his race. His . pleasant  piping ou the prairies gives some life to  that treeless sweep but, how far short is.  it of that thrill of. the skylark, the. despair  of the poet Shelly? What memories revive at the mere thought of the. nightingale song at eve or the cuckoo at setting  -suu;-both-intimately-a-sociateo>in-'older  lands with the tender caress of love or the.  deeper and more lasting solitary wrestle  with the problems of life. But to all this,  so for as this province is concerned, there-  is the business aspect; song birds are the  incarnation of devilment when there is  an orchard in sight; no horticulturist  would deny daily from his boughs to his  feathered companions, but it's thc waste  that breaks his heart. Thrush and startling will deliberately strip a tree and  waste three-fourths of it aud iu an aggravating manner intensified by, way of that  winking birds have when they want to  convey the impression of satirical delight,  From the fact that agitation is ��� now going on ut the coast ou tho question of riding the country of crows, which have do-  vastated;tho fruit crops iu that district,  the feelings of the growers on this new  immigration scheme will be readily un-  stood when approached from the business  end of the proposition.

W. Pettit in American Advertiser.]  .. If system be a 'vital factor in general  business management, how much more is  it essential to the advertising profession.  To attempt an. advertising campaign  without a well denned systematic conception Of what to do can be ouly likened to  an explorer penetrating the depths of an  unknown country with noparticular aim,  or a mariner starting out to sea without a  compass. .-.������-.  Method is nature's law and although ou  the surface'this may appear hardly clear,  yet "a closer scrutiny will convince auyoue  that everything in the realm of nature is  magnificently orderly.:  The great value of system iu advertising is no where more exemplified thau in  the follow up methods .now carried to a  point of scientific exactness.  The greater amount of outer publicity  done by the progressive firms of the day  the. greater is the care bestowed ou the details of this follow aip system,, and nothing is of small enough value to warrant  inattention. This on the same principle  that the same consideration and politeness  should be extended to .the small buyer as  to the large, for reputation travels.  Recognizing this, every enquiry is held  to contain the germ of possible order, aud  is therefore given aniicroscopic attention,  answered promptly, duly, filled and recorded. A small percentage of these enquiries blossom into further correspondence which eventually bear fruit iu an  order.  With the majority no stone is left- unturned to stir up further interest and to  that-.end circular letters and. appeals are  sent-with a tenacity that is in some- cases  truly splendid.  =^OnlyTafteFthi's^6Wti_ml'_^ddi_rg,.ouiy;T  after-fly after fly has beeu changed and  all hope of getting the fish to rise has been  abandoned, will the' name be struck off  ��� the mailing list as dead.  The psychological reason for this is wor-  ,thy of consideration inasmuch as it gives  a "raisou d'etre" for the tenacious system which is now so much iu -vogue.  The problem is how can' the feeble interest of of a casual enquirer be fanned into a flame of desire for possession of the  article in question ?  On the spur of the moment a man will  ask for particulars of a certain ad, these  are mailed and when received overlooked;  his iutorest has failed and his memory  needs jogging, a second letter is despatched, gotten up bo is said to appear exactly  as if it had bean specifically dictated and  carrying an impression of interest ou the.  Lakeview Hotel  -Corner Vornon and Hall Streets,'  NELSON, B.C.  BEST DOLLAR-A-DAY HOUSE IN NELSON  NO  CHINESE EMPLOYED.  Aogtist Thomas,   Proprietor  Silver King Hotel  BAKER STREET,  NELSON;  UNDER   OLD   MANAGEMENT  RATES ��1.00 PER DAY  The Dining Itonm is unsurpassed and the  Bedrooms are the best in Nelson. 'The liar is  stocked wilh good Wines, Liquors and Cigars,  part of the seller that is almost irrestible.  This may call for further particulars  and result in a'mental attitude of deferring the purchase until some time when  he has a spare dollar bill; many advertisers meet this condition by a special offer  at reduced prices Avhich in a great many  cases has the desired effect.  There are, however, objections to this  plau for the reason, that the wily enquirer eventually learns to kuow that he has  only to bide a wee bit and a material reduction from first price will be made.  The curosity of a man in n certain advertised article will, however, last a long  time, being kept green by the continual  appearance of the ad. in some magazine,  the mental attitude still remains, he feels  ho wants the article but cannot nerve  himself to the sticking point and needs,  even after several months, a reminder;  once a mind entertains the idea of thc usefulness of a certain thing it will remain  and if thought much over will certainly  result in purchase unless by somo circuni-  stance the article be proved to be without  value.  System extends its ramifications in all  lines of business and wheu it is most scientifically adopted there one may look for  the most brilliant results.  Take as an illustration the magnificent  system evolved iii the great railways of  the land; no details with them are too insignificant from the fractional cost of  hauling a ton of goods a mile to the cost  of hauling a train across the continent.  Or again in the departmental stores  where the system makes it possible for  a manager to know at once whether the  protfis on this or that article are sufficiently large to warrant present prices aud special advertising expenses. Still again  with great manufacturing concerns where  the exact cost is figured to a dot albeit the  article in the process of manufacture may  pass through twenty hands.  Even further afield iu the rougher work  of mining, system is paramount and six  fractional figures are used to give the exact cost and value per ton of ore, thus permitting great undertakings such as the  Treadwell mine to work hundreds of thousands of tons of ore on a fractional margin of profit.  It is all system, without it there would  be chaos and immense energy would be  frittered away chasing a phantom of commercial profit, no solidity would attach to  business venture inasmuch results would  be the only justification of venture, while  with systematic calculation these can be  foretold with mathematical certainty and  proved as easily as a problem of Euclid.  Only of late years has system been introduced into the realm of advertising,  therebylifting it from the plane of speculation to that of an exact science. There  is still among the ignorant an inclination  to sneer at this, but where it can be shown  that, give a certain- expenditure rightly  distributed, and certain results follow such  expenditure as the dawn the night.  By reason of this splendid system of all  kinds applied to the profession of advertising there'open up vistas of immense  possibilities in the great field of commercial utility.  , How best to carry the importance of  system to the vast-army of smaller business concerns of the land -is the problem  which confronts the ad man of the day.  It can only be done by educating the  smaller merchants to the fact that advertising can be brought to an equally scientific basis in the small.towns as in the  large; the old idea that advertising in the  local weekly is merely a piece of charity  to keep up appearances must be dispelled  and the fact brought home that intelligent systsm infused into this department  as well as in all others will-be as bread  cast on the waters and return many fold.  The Shaw-Walker and other concerns  are doing good work to educate the public  to system which will eventually change  the ideas of all merchants throughout the  country for they will be brought to realize  that improved methods will lessen the expenses of office, work and that much that  is laboriously done now is worse than useless.inasmuch as-it keeps the office staff  busy filing records that have no particular value nor will they ever have.  ' In the light of all this the mission of  the advertssing man in diffusing a knowledge of these up-to-date methods is in  harmony with the most approved methods  of publicity and system, goes hand in hand  with progressive advertising.  So will business transactions be gone  through with greater rapidity entailing  less jnental.. strain, taking__less__actiy.e_  wdrk, thereby permitting more time to be  given to recreation and leadiug to that  not far distant day when the present  daily grind will be looked back upon as a  relic of a barbarous-age.

THB   COMPANY'S   POLICY  It is the intention of the Company to actively develop all these valuable properties and sell such of them as they do not wish to mine themselves, either  to outside capitalists or to subsidiary companies to be formed by the parent  Company, the proceeds going to the shareholders of the Great Northern Mines,  Limited.  Description of Property-  No. 1, embracing seven claims (a claim is about 52 acres) and well known  throughout the province as the Lade Group, is situated  on  Gainer  Creek,  14  miles above Ferguson.  A tunnel 112 feet long has been run and a shaft sunk on the ore. Five tons  of the ore shipped to the smelter gave returns of $1,100 to the ton, in free gold.  Frequent assays of ore from other parts of the claims have more than confirmed this high value, running from $200 to >-,200, and from picked samples  as high as $11,340 to the ton.  The property is traversed by a main ledge,.eight to twelve feet wide, and  several smaller veins carrying high val ues in; free gold and telluride, similar  to the rich ores of Cripple Creek, Colorado. In the Lade Group the present  promoters were satisfied from assays, development work and thorough investigation, that they had a property as rich as any in British Columbia; but on  account of the distance from transpor tation, and the altitude (over 8,000 feet)  they decided to let it lie until a more convenient season, and in the meantime  acquired other gold claims from which quicker returns could be obtained.  A.  Complete  Aline  No. 2, consisting of seven claims, has been purchased from the Ophir-Lade  Mining Syndicate, and is a gold mine in full working order. It is situated on  Fish River and Pool Creek, 1500 feet above Camborne, and only six miles from  a daily steamboat landing at the head of.Arrow Lake. On this property, the  Ophir-Lade Syndicate has completed, at a cost of about $24,000, 1500 feet of  tunnels, cross cuts and other development work. It has also, at an approximate  cost of $35,000, installed one of the most complete and best constructed outfits  of machinery in the province, including- a 10-stamp Fraser & Chalmers' quart-  mill,, rock crusher, Frue vanners, air co mpressor and drills, aerial tramway, two  Pel ton water wheels (300 horse power), assay office, and all necessary buildings.  For a description of this property, the Directors have pleasure in referring  to the .report of Mr. A' H. Gracey, mini ng engineer of Nelson,. made in 1901.'  Art that time Mr. Gracey was Manager of the Eva mine. Space does not allow  the reproduction of his report in full, b ut the following extracts will give a fair  idea of this property:'  .���' GEOLOGY.  -:-~''The country rock of'the neighborhood is metamorphic in character, but  may be called in general a talc schist, with probably some chlorite present. A  belt of this formation extends many miles in an East and West direction, and,  so' far, the free; gold discoveries in this district are mostly confined to this belt.  VEINS  AND  CHARACTERISTICS.  Exposed-on the property at the present time are two well defined veins of  free gold bearing quartz, which have b een opened up on the surface by cuts,  etc.. for considerable distances. ��� The Oy ster vein (on the Oyster claim) strikes  N. 60 degrees W. and pitches into the mountain at an angle of 57 degrees from  the horizontal. It has a width, where exposed, of from 8 to 25 feet, a large  portion of which is solid quartz.  "The Criterion'vein ��� (on the Criterion claim) has been exposed by open  cuts for a distance of about 400 feet. The strike is due East and West (magnetic), and the surface cuts show a width of vein of from 3 to 17 feet. The  vein is composed of solid quartz, carrying its chief values in free gold, associated at some points with a little iron pyrites and galena. The following  assays are of samples carefully taken from this vein by myself:  "1. Average chipped across both ends at collar of shaft, $18 gold per ton.  "2. Average ore from bottom of shaft, $21.60..  "3. Average  chipped across big  cut, 17 feet wide, $4.50 per ton.  '.'-. Average chipped across cut No. 3, 4 feet wide, solid quartz, $3.20 per  ton. There are in this cut some rich seams showing free gold, which are not  included  in sample.  "Selected samples from these cuts gave assays running from $478.20 to  $2,601.40  per ton.  "A large^aj^ount^oXjxj'^edi^^  T>oTnTwKere the shaft is being sunk.  "Intersecting this gold bearing quartz vein is a smaller vein of galena and  iron from 12 inches to 24 inches wide. This has been stripped for over 60 feet  and is particularly well defined and regular. Average samples of this vein  give values as follows:  Gold   $22.80  Silver 25.2 oz.  Lead   27.6 per cent.  "Although these veins are not developed to any extent, they are all exceptionally promising, especially the Criterion vein. They are all well defined and  with every appearance of permanency, and warrant a thorough development.  "The facilities for cheap mining and milling are excellent. The veins can  be worked to depths of hundreds of feet from tunnel levels. There is an abundance of timber suitable for all mining purposes on the property, while for  power purposes a record for 300 miners' inches of water hns been secured in  Pool Creek at the foot of the mountain."  Immediate   Returns   Expected  In the course of a few days it Is expected that the stamp mill at this  mine will be producing bullion in .ufflcient quantity to pay Immediate dividends.  Another Good Property-  No. 3. The Imperial. Balfour and Rossland claims, lying on Lexington  mountain, immediately between three working mines, the Eva. the Cholla, the  Oyster-Criterion. There are on the property three well defined quartz ledges,  showing free gold on the surface. A 50- foot tunnel has been run on the Imperial. It is run on the ledge and free gold was encountered throughout tis  entire length.  The large amount of development work done both on the Eva and Oyster-  Criterion had proved that the ricfi gold values on this mountain continue and  even improve with depth. At the 700-foot level on the Eva, close to the line  of this group, some of the richest ore on the mountain has been struck. The  workings of both of these well known m ines are close to the property of the  Great Northern. The main ledges on the property run into the Oyster-Criterion  ground.  The tramway and air pipe of the Oyster-Criterion run over the property,  and the Eva tramway cuts across one corner..  The whole of Lexington Mountain i s a mass of ledges of free milling quartz,  and the Great Northern Company hav e every reason to believe they own one  of the richest portions of the hill.  A meeting of tlie shareholders of the Ophir-Lade Syndicate is being called  to formally ratify the sale of that company's property to the Great Northern.  Two   Potential   Claims  No. 4 property consists of the Strathcona full claim, and the Triune fraction, lying on Silver Cup Mountain, near Ferguson, between the Triune and  the Cromwell, both of which have been proved by extensive work to be rich  in gold. The Triune has shipped a large amount of ore, averaging about $240  to the ton. The Cromwell has made a shipment to the Trail smelter, representing 13 days' work for two men, and yielding as follows:  Gold, 5.76 oz per ton.   Total value (after deducting 5 per cent.) $722.53  Silver, 18.1 oz. per ton.   Total value, (after deducting 5 per cent)      71.24  Smelting charges   Net Proceeds ..........  $793.97  ...     79.22  ...$714.55  The  Great Lucky Jack  ���'���' No. 5.

' ��� ���-���     .  A Chat With a Coal Baron.  J. J. Fleutot, manager of the Canadian-  American Coal & Coke Company, Limited, came in from Frank on Monday.  Asked about the-progress of the company  which had been impeded somewhat by  the slide last summer, he said, that everything was now in good shape aud that the  C .P. R.-^was^using^jnore=coal =-than=the^  mine could supply. In spite of this the  new coke ovens aro all but ready and are  constructed ou more advanced ideas than  those at Fernie. They are copied from  the Belgian system and it is claimed that  thc chemical results are better, allowing  the possibility of reclaiming the by-products of the tar, which is now carried  away in fumes.  Asked his opinion about thc rcceut  election, Monsieur Fleutot revelled in the  bare idea that the "avocat" candidate had  been defeated.  "Cost honteux conime la loi est dirigee  dans ce pays ci," ejaculated the gentleman. Why they even go and discuss the  situation between themselves as to tho  best ways and means of keeping a case  "green."  What about the recent slide alarm at  Frank?  Mr. Fleutot said thc report originated  through the inability of the engine to get  up the small grade over the slide, so it  backed down a mile or so. Meanwhile  small slides were going on and the row  occasioned alfirmcd tlie passengers to such  an extent that they imagined the whole  mountain , was coining down. All the  same there i.s going to be trouble there ns  there are mauy places that are dangerous  and boulders as, big as a house are ready  to roll at any moment, although they are  not likely to come near the present, town.  Mr. Fleutot was accompanied by his  daughter, Miss Elsie Fleutot, who is enjoying her first visit to Canada very much.  They returned to Frank Thursday.  Great Northern Mines, Limited.  Attention is called to the prospectus in  this issue of the above company, which  owns 21 claims in Poplar Creek nud Fish  river districts, in the Lardeau. Thc company is capitalized for $1,500,000 and hns  on thc directorate some of tlie most responsible men in the country. Messrs.  W. F. Cochrane', F. W. Godsal aud J. J.

The manager has quite recently^re-  turned from Spokane where he' has been  to inspect the working of Dr. Hendryx's  cyanide plant and the matter of installing  a 10-stanip mill at Poplar will be decided  iu a few .days by the directors. Only 100,-  000 shares will be sold at the par value of  $1 and it will not be long before they are  taken up at the present rate of application.  Ivanhoe's New Epoch.  The'Ivanhoe mine McGuigan, now admitted'to be one of the Slocau's biggest  mines, has entered upon a new era of activity. Commencing on Sunday the mill  is working with a double shift, and for an  indefinite period the property will ship almost up to the capacity of the works. The  output will be in the neighborhood of 500  tons of concentrates . and cleau ore per  per month. This production will be increased upon the completion of a short  aerial tramway connecting the No. 4 adit  with the mill. A contract for the tram  has beeu let to B. C. Riblet and work will  be started at once. -  For the past two years the management  of the Ivanhoe has devoted at;cation almost exclusively to the development .of  of the property, with the result 'that the  mine is now opened down to the 1000 foOt  level. In the course of development considerable ore was broken down, approximately 75 to 100 tons per month, and this  has been shipped, the returns being sufficient to meet the cost of operation.  The Ivanhoe produces rich ore its tonnage netting $54, with silver at 00 ceuts  and lead netting the mine $1.47 per hundred. With the increased production the  mine *>yill be a large dividend earner, but  the proprietory, concern is a close corporation, the principal shareholders being the  Messrs ' Yawkey of Detroit "and Phil J.  Hickey, the present manager.  The Ivanhoe was the first property in  the Slocan to save zinc concentrates, and  this i.s now an important feature of the operations in the property. The zinc is ex-  "tracted^fronrthe'ore'Oirjigs^and-^-Wilfley'  tables aud a 47 per cent product is being  forwarded regularly to Iola, Kansas.  Good Returns From B. C. Mines..  British Columbia has been kind to thc  following American cousins of ours in  having showered on them millions of dollars obtained through mining ventures in  the Kootenays. They are now residents  of onr sister city to the south, Spokane.  It would be nicer if their united incomes  were being spent in the provinco which  placed them in tho position they are now  in. The subject is as interesting for  speculation as thc other one that seems to  puzzle certain minds, namely���Why peo  pie will persist in buying goosd from  Eaton and Simpson when there are up-to-  date departmental stores on Baker street,  Nelson.

Tlie following telegram appears in the  Nelson News: "It is said that the ultimatum which John Houston, the member-  elect for Nelson, lias issued to the government is, that he is to receive the portfolio of chief commissioner of lauds and  works or he will precipitate a crisis during  the first week of the approaching session,  which opens on November 2(>th." .It is'  untrue in every particular.
