EDITORIAL  NOTKS.
The action of the Lieulciinnt-Gnver
nor ill dismissing the Turner government called forth a perfect fusillade of
criticism, principally From the fnnner
goveriiinenl organs, That he did not
exceed his authority all scorned to
recognize, but that lie should summarily dismiss a'discredited and defeated ministry seemed to them to he
a perfectly inexplicable act.
To ourself Ihc subsequent action of
lhe Lieutenant-Governor in calling
upon tin. Hon. Hubert Heaven lo form
anew ministry was the puzzling feature .if the political crisis, and until
further light is thrown upon the subject it wiP always remain so. That wc
are however at a loss to know why
His Honour should, after dismissing
.Mr. Tumor, have overlooked the
recognized lender of the Opposition,
Jlr. V. A. Semlin, does not liowever
prevent our presenting our readers
with the correspondence which passed between two of the principals interested, and although tbe following
leller docs not even hint atthe reason
why Jlr. Semlin was ignored at the
time, yet does it givsi a f llr idea of the
relation existing between the Lieutenant-Governor and lbe Premier, as also
it points to the erroneous conviction
held by the writer, that it was possible
to fuse the two provincial parties, by
calling upon an individual oul of
sympathy with both.
At Government House. Victoria, B.C.,
Aug. 8,1898.
To tin Hon. Robert Leaven, Esq., Victoria, B. ('.
Slit—I have the honor lo inform you
that, by letter of even dale herewith. I
have relieved tin* Hon. .1. ,11. Turner
and his colleagues from their functions
as my advisors and members of my
Executive Council, This action [have
taken, in view of the results of the
general elections held on the llth of
last month. This is, probably, the
mo«t important period that has yet
been kno.vn in the developinenl of iln*
resources of the Province, and, during
the month that has elapsed since the
said general ele.'lions, I have deeply
felt the need of advisers in whom 1
could place full confldenci nnd whose
recommendations [could unhesitatingly approve, A,,d, knowing your
thorough knowledge of '.he special
needs and requirements of tin* 1'r, i.-
iiirc, anil having ill view ynur long and
honorable experience throughout a
quarter of a century in lhe adininstra-
tion of its affairs, and regarding you,
moreover, as peculiarly fitted to reconcile its contending puliiical factions,
[hereby call upon you to assume the
task of funning a Ministry, and to
once more act as chief adviser to the
representative of tin* Crown.
(Signed) Thos. 11. MoInnes,
Lieut. -Governor,
If llu* pre-election* pledges of the
Opposition party are fulfilled and there
is every reason to believe that thev
will be, then th" 15th uf August, 18118
(he day upon which Mr, tl. A. Semlin
nnd bis colleagues nssuui"il the reins of
goveriiinenl, should remain forever
memorable in the history of Brilish
(lol u in I iia. For years Mi. Semlin, with
a small following, fought manfully hi
the provincial legislature againsl the
policy of the government which was
presided over by Jlr, Turner and his
predecessors, and although al limes,
jl musl he said he seemed lo make
li: I le progress when he attempted to
force his opponents to recognize the
lies! inleresls of the province, and
govern themselves accordingly, yel
iu the liglil of recenl events musl it be
acknowledged thai hlR'liugglcfnr lhe
right wns being unleil, and'bat too hy
a people gradually awakening to the
necessity fora pnliliia.1 change, Associated willi Mr..Semlin in lbe new.

nnd these as lhey have pledged themselves to a policy of reform ,in ninny j
directions, will nn doubt conduct themselves in such a manner as In earn Ihe i

OUH OTTAWA   LETTER.
Ottawa, Aug, 18th, 1898,
Aiming the varied and often unique
criticisms which the ingenuity of th.
Conservatives have devised againsl Ibe
Government mine have been more
persistent than the charges of extravagance and reckless expenditure of

practised by the Governuienl can l.e
..uud ihnn in lhe repurl of th" Post
Office depasl ment for tin* fiscal vein

hat th- Posl Olliee has never paid for
itself, but perhaps il is nol as well
'.iinivii lhat the ncl mil deficit when the
p es'iit Pusl master-General took olllee
. as uver $71111,1)011. This huge sum iviu
lle result of an annually recurring

The Centre Star.
The (Jotiilerhain-Black-stoek syndicate hns purchased the Centre Star
mine in Rossland camp. The purchase
price is slated tu have been $2,000,000,
This is tho company which owns tlie
War Kagle and ither cliiiins in the
same camp.
The ti. C. Mine.
The statement is made Unit the
owners of the B. 0, mine in Suniinit
camp, are considering a proposition
for Ihedisposial of Ihi'ir property on
the basis of a $1,000,000 deal, bul,
weather such Is actually the case It is
not possible to say just at present. As
far ns l,lu* purchase of the property
from the original owners is concerned,
that is al anyrale settled as the final
payment of $27,000 was made on Friiluy lasl.
Just at present work is not being
prosecuted upon the li. ('., the nimiag-
iiicnl, having closed down lhe works a
few days ago, but that everything is
satisfactory may be gleamed from the
(actthnt lbe linnl payment on the
purchase pries* was made since tlie
working force wus laid off.
Whatever may he the outcome of
the negotiations which it is said ore
now pending, it is safe to say that I e-
fore the work of development at the
inine is continued, a very large
machinery plant will be installed in
the place uf the one which up lo the
present bits done good service, but
which is to small for deep winkings.
With tin advent of the railway tu
Summit camp, no doubt the B.C. will
again assume a buisy appearance,

A Great Shtiswnp Property.
A grnup of claims situated ou the
shore of Shuswap lake, 5 miles from
Sicamous station, on the main line of
the C, P. R,, the ore of which is identical with the Russland nre, will furnish
an eyeopener iu the way uf it new mining camp. A ledge has been uncovered
here, partly liyiinlure and partly by
several tnonlhs of work quietly carried
on, whicli shows clean sulphide ores
limning from $60 to $700 in gold, with
an average nf 8^ per cent, copper
values, When we s'.nta thai Ibis large
ledge drops at, an incline of about 10
degrees down an escarpment almost
perpendicular for 1800 feel, and is in
places of a width of f.0 feel of clean ore
on uu almost, righl angle face, aud is
continuous from where il strikes into
lhe waler lo the poinl where work has
been carried on to date, n distance of
over 8,000 feet, and ns yet no diminution iu size, we think we have made
out a case of a new camp Ibnl will
ipii"kly give Rossland a run fnr firsl
place. This mny sound over sanguine,
but llie fact nf the mailer is thai' with
u dip of 45 degrees into ibe mountain,
natures work alone bus given us a
perpendicular deplh with continuous
sloping ground of over llil-l) feet, mine
than twice the presenl depih reached
at Hfiasland,iind a conlinuousorecliute
ninny limes longer Ihnn nny yel uncovered in fhe Trail ereek dlslrlcl,
Among llie various claims alung this
ledge are the Jlnno.Diill'eriii. Bluebird,
Milton nud three ill hers, lhrough which
this great ledge is canlimintis and exposed. Staked only last wlnlet, nothing Init prospecting by means of stripping unit as yet shallow shafts lias been
done, with lhe resull of a tine hanging
l.eing shown to be in place, The
geology is iiindi* up of the well-known
Shuswap schist with considerable
porphyry .float, in lhe slides below the
ledge, which cuts lhe schists at, an
ingle of nlioul 110 degrees. The properly is nnw attracting much attenlion,—B, 0, Mining Otitic.
J1INJNG   NOTES.
Mr. ,1ns. Lynch has kindly promised
lo obtain sonic specimens of Toroda
creek ores to be sent to New Westminister with the collection Jlr.Jacobs
is making for the Provincial exhibition
■ held in Hint cily iu October
next.
Work will In* resumed lo day iu lhe
Bruce tunnel on the Bruce claim sit-
mils d nn Ingram mountain near Midwny, as a new cnni met has been let to
Mr. James Beckwith nud bis partner.
The tunnel has heen driven over 200
feet and it is expected thai during llle
Iil'.. of lhe presenl contract the ledge
will be reiclied. In Hie fine of the
tunnel some change In ibe formation
is notifiable as ibe very bard granite is
gradually giving way loa more limey
formalinn.
il is reported thnl n gnnd slrike has
been made nn lbe Morrison cluim,
which is silualed in Deadwood camp,
but Hie character and value of the ore
has nol yd been disclosed,
Wnrk has been suspended on the
Snowslioe claim In Greenwnnd camp,
pending Ihe installation of a heavy
machinery plant, which bus been ordered and will soon beon the way to
lhe mine. Greal difficulty wilh wnler
hus been experienced in the Snowshoe,
and 't is do doubt owing to Ihis that
the management bus decided io knock
nf lhe men, and await lhe arrival nf
machinery hefore carrying further the
woi'k of developing the claim.

Il is not so staled, hut ii is presumed
tlie Vancouver World means to the
Urn Flno properties nt Fuirview, when
ii refers i,i the operations of the company ns follows.
"A special meeting of the Oro Finn
mines directors wns held til I heir office,
Mai'klmion block, ou .Mnnilay afternoon, for the purpose of eendiog Me.
Puller, llaevey's reporl afler his
examination of thia promising
property. Mr. Harvey estimates thai the ore whieh can lie
I rented as snnti u< there is n mill erected, at over 5,000 lops, with a valuation of $1,00!) per ton, The direclnrs
decided to at once set on foot, negotiations for lhe procuring ofa 5-slnuip
mill and hope hy full in have Ihis In
operation. A sufficient, amount of
treasury shares will tie sold to meet
tbe cost of ihis work and when ore cnu
lie shipped I he direct ors hope In pny
dividends lo Iheir shareholders,"
It will lie observed lliiitln I he above,
ih" statement is made that Ihe nre
runs as high ns $1,000 I.n the ton.
It Is also nol iced that another Vancouver paper lhe Mining Critic  makes
the same sl-uti I, which is obviously
imt i ue, fnr froui oilier sources it is
gleaned Ihal Mr. Pcllew-H irveyin bis
report claims thai lhe ure uill average
aliiiut $10 lo tlle Inn.
The following is snuie nf the pnni-
graphs in Mr. Fellow- Harvey's report,
to the company, and the values given
arp very much more to the point than
the absurd contention put forward by
the Journals referred in.
The report says:
Th** quantity of ore exposed by the
work already done with lhat showing
along the surface of Ihe two claims,
(Oro-llnoand Independence) will approximate 4,500 Inns. The assay value
nf this has not lieen ascertained by
complete sampling, bill hnnil siiinples
have given fair assays and indicate an
average of ahout the same ns the 4*11
tons nf broken quart!! which is now on
the dumps ready fo be milled, and according to tin* ciiisliings of an average
sample of two Ions, will yield about $10
per ton, 8(1 pee cent, nf which is
nuinlgniiiiihlo.
Tbe cost nf Mining nnil Milling.
should nut exeeeil $,"i per ton.
Thete is good timber on the properties. As far as lhe mill site is concerned, this is a question wbich will
require careful consideration as ihe
water available in ihe vicinity is
scarce, but foe battery use and a small
plant wiih steam power, there Is water
enough in the ravine   aboul    the	
quarters of a mile snutli nf lhe cnmp.
I have given as ninny details ns are
necessary for the purpose nf this re.
port. The conclusions to he arrived nl.
are that llle grnup cunlnins a large
body of surface quail-/ sufficient tu
warient further exploration. This
will luke n good deal uf money, bul the
chances of success are in favor of such
expenditure, There are Iwo ways
which mighi lie suggested I'nr lbe
execution of this purpose, vizi (a) The
running of a linitiel fnnn is pninl some
100 feel below ihe Nu. I tunnel  he
Orn-Fino towards ibe discovery stake,
in the hope nf sliikinu lho lode iu pluce
there, This would give a depth of 1.10
feel, with ii drive nf nlioul 'Jill feel,and
would cosl about $10 poe foot, (li) A
hei tor proposition ivould ho to conduct
a series of open cut lings for slrlpplng

by so doing it niny he expected Ibnl

thus put you inn position of great advantage, ns ii »nulil demonstrate

niiiiilier of special |.iizi*s nf greal value,
are taken into consideration. One of
the important, feature* of the exhibi-
bition will be a large collection of

Death at the Old Ironsides.
On Inst Tuesdny inorniug a very sad
(affair occurred ut the Old Ironsides
.mine in (Ireeuwooil camp,In which .one
.uf the men working in the mine lost his
life aud another very nearly sn.
fl wuuld seem thnt three men, ti. W
Roberts, M. Austin mid W. J. Plerci
were working ;in n drift which wus
being run in from the shaft at the 20(1
foot level, They had occasion to lire
(several.holes and while this was being
(done they went to the surface. After
•waiting ahout IB minutes they fiecend-
•ed the shaft tncether until thoy got
'to Ithe pump station, nt which point
Pierce slopped to fix the pump,
Roberts and Austin went on lo the
'bottom of the shaft und as soon us,
this -wns reached Roberts proceeded to
go into the drift, but hud not gone
more than two or three steps before
be fell down being overcome with
powder smoke. Austin noticed Roberts
full uml shouted to Pierce, nnd then
went to where liis partner Iny. Having readied him be too became un-
concious, Pierce slid down the cubic
lothcbottom of the shnfl, hut, lbe
smoke wns so bud thnl, Iiii, feeling himself going, decided to ascend llu* shaft
and give the alarm, This he did nud
immediately Pitt Dermody the foreman went to the "rescue. On the Hrst
trip down Dermody secured Austin
hut could nut gel Roberts into the1
bucket, bul was more successful the:
second time. As soon lis the men,
were brought to tlie surface means
were employed lo rcsusticate thein,
aid in Austins case successfully, but
witli Huberts ull efforts failed und in n
few minutes lie wus (lend.
On the following duy Dr. Jaqties,
Corner for the district, enpmiiieli'tl n

listening to the evidence the jury returned a verdict lo the effect thai
death was caused by foul air, hut that
nu Illume was attached to any one.
The Fall of Manila.
American warships bombarded and
reduced Hie foils, Ihen the land forces
made afiu'oiis attack.
Hung Bong, August 1(1.—Accounts
hroiighl liy the German steamer nf the
stli render of Manila say Admiral
Dewey gave General August! an hour
in surrender al, the lime of Ihe lust demand on Saturday. August] refused
to contply,
The liomhardment which began at
0.81) a, in,, wus rntilintit'd two hours,
and then the Americans stormed the
trenches, sweeping nil! before thetn.
Those within lhe walls atlemiptefl mu
resistance,
Th.. First Colorado volunteersstorm-
ed I he outer trenches and drove the
S|iiiitiiii'dsinlu ibe second line uf defenses, Then llie American troops
swept on, ilriviiig nil Ihe Spaniards
into lhe inner fori ideations, where the
Spanish coititminder, seeing that fur-
ther resistance was useless, hoisted the
white'flag nnd surrendered,
The hisses, American nnd 'SpuirWh
nre mil known yet, The Spaniards in
the trenches probably numbered 300(1
i8n. The Americans attacking forces
numbered 10.IKI0, and Ihe Americans
were better armed, hetter trained and
in better condition,
The foreign fleet! watched the bombardment with acute interest.
The American warships engaged
were the Olympla, Petrel, Releigh,
McCollnch, Boston, Monterey, Charleston and Baltimore,
The Spaniards assert that the (ire of
the Americans for the most part if ell
shod, the only effective lire being from
a small gunboat, armed wilh quick-
firing guns that wasclose in shore- II.
is asserted by Spaniards that "'the
Ainericiinsliisl heavily in the storming,
owing to the faulty construction 'of
their eiitrenchineiiis, which the
Spaniards could command from the
heights, and upnu which lhey poured
■i nulling fire."
The Spanish trenches extended
around Manila at a (flstance »f from
two to four miles fl I the walled cily,
forming a circle It) miles in circumference, and it was Impossible, the
Spaniards say, to hold so long a line
againsl the Americans attack.
