EDITORIAL  NOTES.
Premier Turnkrannounced in ilu
provincial parliament jusl tiefure nil*
jiuirniiieni last Wednesday that ll win*
expected that prorogation would lake
place on Thiisdny, Huy 12.
The great event of the day in llie
provincial legislnl ure on the llli insl.
was Ihe introduction of the long looked
for government railway aid bill. Hy
it the governuienl seeks llie power lo
granl. $4,000 per mile for live railways,
which areas follows, Fora standard
gunge railway from Penticton to
Biuindury Creek, 101) miles ; for a
standard gunge road from Rohson lo
Boundary Creek dlslrlcl, to ciuinecl
with the Hrst mentioned roud, a distance of Similes; for a standard gunge
from the const in tiie neighborhood of
English blulf, near poiul Roberts, via
Chilliwack, to Penlictoo, 230uiiles; for
a standard gunge from Butte Inlet in
Questielle, 2.11) miles, and for not more
iiiiiii 100 miles of narrow guage railway
frum Teslin lake to a seaport iu Brilisli
Columbia. Work on llie Iirsl named
two roads must begin within 16months
from May 8, 181)7; on tin* nexl two,
within Iwo years from .May 8, 1X1)7, mul
on the last, named hy June 1, ISI'B. We
shall huve something more tu say ahout
this lull in or next issue.
The farcial aet wliieli the government is pleased lo cull a redistribution
bill, passed ils third reading on the lib
inst., after the ililruduclion ol the
attorney general's amendment, allow*
iug another member for Knoieiuiy, for
the new riding of Slocan, thereby Increasing the number of members of
the bouse to IIS. Mr. Graham's amendment seeking lo hold intact Yule district as formerly constituted antl
dividing east, Yule so ns to give lliis
district another uieiiiher wus rejected,
therefore the people of Boundary
Oreek and Kettle River are virtually
disfranchised, as tlie whole of the
country lying hetween e pulnt just
west of Midway and as far easl as
Christina lake is thrown inlo ibe Rossland riding of south west Koiileniiy.
By granting another member lo Kootenay the government bus endeavored
tu smooth the ruffled feelings of lhe
people of I bat. sect ion, antl no doubt is
congratulating ilself upon having done
so, but if ibe members of lhe presenl
government will huve only a lillle
patience, lhey will lind out someday,
jusl about the time of tin* elections,
that tlle people of Kootenay do not
even now consider the province properly
represented, Proper represeutatioo
will have heen attained only when
voters iu ilie rural und city constituencies of I he Island and mainland arc
plarrd upon uu equal fooling, und nol.

Fire at Northport.
Northport, May 2,—Fire broke out
at l a. in. to-day in u barber simp on
Fourth avenue, ll spread rapidly and
liiirned about four hours, destroying
mote limn 411 buildings with much of
their contents, Of the entire business
district lint two huililings remain—the
Spukane Falls und Nm tlieru depot and
the brick stote building of A. T. Ken-
Urick&Co, But liule insurance was
curried, owing to the high rate, Many
are homeless.
Two circumstances contributed to
make the destruction great—the presence of a high wind and the luck of a
water .system. Kvery effort was made
lo check the spread of Ihe fire, but. it.
was not until the blowing up of buildings in the path qf the lire began that
ils spread was stopped,
No loss of life look place, though
many daring risks were taken in efforts
to save properly. The postofflce was
burned, bnt the mull was saved. In
many instances goods which had been
saved from buildings were caught by
the Haines further on.

Decidedly Familiar.
When Mr. Fui sl ei' read to the menr
bersuf ilie provincial legislature the
resolutions passed al a public ineeling
held by lhe electors of Greenwood and
Boundary Greek the other day, the
Hon. Colonel Bilker took occasion to
observe that he would like to put the
members of the opposition on oath
1,0 ascertain which one of them had
sent the resolutions up to the meeting
to lie passed. There was a ring about
them, he suid, lhat was decidedly
familiar.
By the above il will be seen lhat not
only does the governuienl systematically insult the electorate bv dying
lo foist upon tlie people an iniquitous
redistribution measure, but as well
Individual members of the government
go out of their way to impute to the
people of Bouudury insincerity, in that
they are supposed to be complying with
the bidding of an agent, rather than
giving a free expression to their views,
when they so strongly and sincerely
disapprove of being by the gerrymandering redistribution bill, virtually
disfranchised. How long will this
state of nfflairs continue?

Press Comment of England.
London, May 8,—The Daily Mail in
au editorial this morning on the engagement at Manila suys:
"It. was, in Nelson's words, 'not victory, hut annihilation,' and ll proved
Commodore Dewey a worthy disciple
of 1'iiirugul. It is cliaracterlsllc of llie
American race to lie generous to Ihe
weak antl as its president is ailveiise tn
useless bloodshed be will doubtless
meet 'Spain, whose honor is now saved,
iu a generous spirit,"
The Times says editorially : "Exul-
tiilion over the American victory is a
.sentiment with which all friends uf Ihe
American people in England will
readily sympathize. We wish we
could also shine the view of many well-
informed persons in the United States
as to the consequences of lhe victory.
The idea, thul Spanish honor may he
satisfied by the issue of it single action
in which Spain's best ships were nut
engaged, will nol. appear probable to
those best aeipiainted with the Spanish
eharacler. Unless an unforseen casually occurs in Spain it is too probable
that many months will elapse before
effective action can be taken iu Cuba,
llie only place where it is likely to he
attended with decisive results."

driven on this vein from which ore is
lieing taken, On the same property is
a larger vein (quartz) currying galena
and pyrites.
The "G. A. R." has u 30-fool shaft
sunk on a2-foiil vein, heavily mineralized with an intimate mixture of iron
and copper pyrites, galena, blende and
silvei'gluiice. Theflnest,piect'sofwiri'sil*

from this shaft, Aveiage assays from
different places across the vein gave
$8,00 gold, 50 oz-,. silver; also $8,00
gold and 15(1 ozs. silver and one, the
latest return—$15.05 gold und HKI-l-5
ozs. silver par ton.
On the "Big Ledge" is a 10-foot
quartz vein, mineralized with iron
pyrites. This vein hns heen opened
up liyci'oss-culs ou the surface for 5(H)
feet. A narrower vuin hits lieen
opened up, helng oue foot wide, carrying considerahle copper pyrites, and
runs Into the main ledge as a spur, mi
which a tunnel of 10 feet hns heen
driven. Average assays gave $33 gold
nud 11-10 ozs. silver, and $40,36 gold

and general character would seem lo
In* lhe same vein us that on the Big
Ledge, although sufficient has not
lieen done to make this conclusive.
Tin* second vein has at, present a
width of nearly three feet. Assays
huve shown values in gold from $4.00
to $170.53,,while a conservative suinpl-

$20.1X1 in gold.
On*lhe"8.11. B." are two converging veins of copper nnd iron pyriles,
ou which work is now heing done. An
average assay gave, gold $1.50, silver
