lo this province on account of lhe per

By the terms of union ive are entitled to receive from lhe Uoiuiiiiiui
government, au annual grant of IHI
cents per head of the population as
ascertained at each decennial census.
Tbe Acl does not say thai, tlm payments for each ten years shall be limit

is the plan upon which tlie subsidy has

They have pleaded eloquently ami

coiiip lo us had our subsidy been iu.
creased with the populationdining tin

oral least refusil th it, could be lie

We believe tha' such a demand — or

Liberal Convention to fleet Feb. 6h.
A meeting of the Executive of lhe
Hritish Columbia Libeiul Association
was held in Vancouver on Saturday,
18th hist., to consider the protesl of
thu Vancouver ahd several other Liheral associations against the admission
lo the convention of members of the
Executive and Lilieral editors, also Ihe
protest of lhe Greeuwood Liheral Association against the inequality pf
representation on Ihe basis proposed,
and other communications received
since the call was issued for the convention.
'Ihese questions were nil discussed
very fully, and with a desire tn arrive
ut conclusions thul. would he satisfactory to all parlies. The decisions arrived at were ns follows:
Editors at convention.—The Executive at its former meeting decided
to admit to the convention as memhers
thereof Lilieral editors of newspapers
supporting the Ottawa government
About a dozen editors in the province
were notilied by the secretary und in
response thereto two applications for
admission in that capacity have heen
received. Itwas, therefore, resolved
that the application of editors for admission, wbich must he received by
the Executive iu advance, will lie
passed upon hy the Credentials Com
mitlce, wliieh will have the power to
admit or reject any applicant, who is
known not to be n supporter of tbe
Liheral cause.
Inequality op bepbkhkntation.—
In respect to ihe Greenwood Liberal
Association's protest against lhe inequality of the representation, which
is bused upon the present representation in the legislature, the following
decision was arrived at: "Recognizing
the justice of I he demand of up conn
try constituencies fur increased voting
power ul conventions, we recommend
l hut the voting powers of each roust ituency he based nn the number of
votes cast at the last provincial election ; the final decision of the question
to rest with the convention." The
Executive will press upon the conven
lion the adoption of Ihu ahove prin
riple. The number of delegates to he
elected will in any event remain as at
present (three for each meiiiher of thu!
legislature), hut the convention will,if
it icciigni/.es the just ice of Ihe elaini.
nihil lo each constituency the voting
strength which'it. would undoubtedly
have lunl at the convention had there
been a redistribution ol seats according to population, This, is as fat as
the Executive thought it wise to gn.
The Rossland and Nelson Districl Liberals will have the support of the Ex
ecutive iu pre.-sing Iheir claim upon
Ihe convention, which we have every
reason to believe will act in the liest
interests of the Liberal cause in this as
in all other matters. M	
Date op meeting.—In response to a
request from the Victoria Liberal As-
Biiclntion the dale of the meeting of
the conven I inn was adjourned one
wuuk, from January 30th to February
6th. The Vict oi ia Liberals are in Ihe
middle nf a Doniinion election and
slated that ihey could not rail a meeting to select delegates before I he 20th
(polling is nn the 2Stb), without interfering with other arrangements and
possibly injuring the prospects of the
Liberal candidate for election. This
adjournment for nne week for this
reason w ill, we trust, be approved nf
by all parties.
The credentials committeb.—No
change was made in this regard. The
necessity for a Credentials Committee
to begin its work as soon as possihle
after ihe delegates arrive in Vaiicou
ver on February Oth, must lie apparent to every person, The selection of
two sets of delegates, as al Nanaimo,
emphasizes this fuel. M~~
All Ihese mailers may he considered
hy theconvention after it is convened
if it deems it wise tn do so. The Ex
eeiil ive has only one object in view—lo
make I he convention a success in order
that Ihe Liberal parly may become
united and strong, and that thereby
Ihe cause of good government may be

Copper Coins.
\Vc of the VVest are, In our aversion
to the use of copper coin, seemingly in
some danger of heing thought too rich
by our fellow countrymen of the Hasten! provinces, and through this of having our appeals for just Dominion consideration of nur public needs further
postponed. At any rate the Toronto
"Mail and Empire" recently delivered
itself on the subject thus: The Calgary "Herald" protests against the
introduction of coppers Into the North
West, and Ihe "Alherla Plulndcaler''
observes: "Coppers may he very
useful in a staid old province like Ontario, hut In the West we want none
of Ihem j silver Is cheap enough for
us." They are so rich in the Ten! lories
thai they insist upon paying Ave cents
fora two-cent stamp. At least we
■hotild think so, judging by the lofty
contempt with which a few cents are
viewed,' — News Advertiser.

Mr. Irwin was affectionately called hy

Will be Operated by Assessable Company.   Is one of the Oldest Locations In Skylark Camp.
The Boundary Creek Mining company owning the List Chance mine in
Skylark camp, is soon to he reorganized and put on an assessable basis.
Arrangements to that effect are now
heing made and it is hoped will be
completed tn a short time.
The mine has been closed down for
some lime on account of lack of funds,
but hy making the stock assessable the
treasury Will soon have money enough
to go ahead with the work. One of
the reasons for starting work again is
the splendid showing that has lately
heen made on the Lake claim, adjoining the Last Chance.
The Last Chance mine is one of tbe
oldest locations in Skylark camp, and
is a rich gold and silver proposition,
from which some shipments have been
made, even before a railway was Iniilt
into the Boundary country. It is
owned by the Boundary Creek Mining
company of Spokane, of which Sidney
Rosenhaupt is the secretary, Two
years ago a car of ore was shipped
from which satisfactory returns were
made, hut thu mine was closed about
lhat time and has remained closed
since. < I
It has been developed to a depth of
120 feet with a double compartment
shaft sunk between two parallel veins.
The east crosscut was driven about
70 feet and the west crosscut over 200
feet, lhe last hundred of which wus
all mineralized rock. At lhe end of
the west crosscut drifting wu.i started
north on the most promisingpavshort
which was penetrated about 18 inches,
wiih 10 inches to the south. This <
ran from $80 to $207 pel ton, the gold
values being frnm $5 to o 0 per ton
and the silver from 126 to 215 ounces
per ton.

Developing the Zala M.
P. A. MiCorinick, a minrowner of
Sheridan camp, in speaking of work
there said:
"The most extensive operation is being done under the management of
Colonel Topping on the Zala M. Ue
hus a considetable force engaged in
crosscut'ing the ledge. During previous work it was found lhat the ledge
divided. One of the veins had been
followed for a considerable distance
and much good ore had heen exposed,
but the olher branch of the ledge was
a sealed hook, The work now in progress Is to determine what that branch
contains. The vein will probably be
reached within a short time,
"Much good ore has been taken out I
of the mine aud there is u large quantity still available for stuping. It is
probable during tbe winter that ore
will he taken out for shipment. The
'Zala M. has long been regarded as one
of the best mines in the country. The
shipments have demonstiated that
fact. The great drawback has been
l hat the ore must he hauled by wagon
to Midway at an expense lhat greatly
curtailed the profits, In a few umnl hs
it will be possible to ship Ihe ore by
I rain, and then the expense will be
constantly lessened.

It is only a question ofa short time
until that portion of the Coast-Kootenay Railway from Curlew to Midway
will be constructed. This line would
be now being built, but for the scarcity
of laborers. When this road is built,
most of the spur lines to the different
mining camps will start from here,
making this the railway centre of this
district. With the advent of more railways into Midway the prices of real
estate will advance, and the choice lots
purchased and taken off the market.

One of the sulkiest events that has
ever heen our painful duty lo record,
Imopened lust Friday evening, when
George P. Wells, a rancher nenr Midway, was frozen to death on the trail
within a mile from his home,
Mr. Wells hud heen to Greenwood
on Friday,* having gone up in tin-
morning on horse hack and left for
home early in the afternoon. On his
way he stopped ,it Tommy Wake'*
hotel, Boundary Falls, to warm himself, He left Wake's some time after
dark and I h» last seen of hi in alive
was at the little hill above the railway-
crossing, a shmt distance from where
the trail lending across Ihe bridge
near Jolly Jack's leaves Ihe main wagon road. He wus then getting off his
horse presumably for the purpose of
leading it. This wns only aliout 300
yards from where the hody was found
two days later.
The trail lending to Wells' cabin
hut little used ut nny time und more
especially during Ihe winter months,
as there is a good wagon rond to the
ranches on theliill, luu aslinrt distanct
below the trail, so that, no one passed
over the trail from Friday evening till
til Sunday about noon, when a gentle
iiiiui going tu J. A, (iiiils,ui's discover
••el the lilies* Imdy of the uiifortunati
man  lying face downwards in   the
snow.   The gentlemen went on to Mr.
Cuulsnii's and Informed lliem of his
ghastly find and J. M.  Melville, who
happened  to  he   there,  brought I hi
news  to   Midway.    In a short time
Provincial Cuusnilile George Gunning
ham nml J. J,.Flood, liveryman, took
a rig  and  drove to where the hody
was   lying.    Upon arriving   at  the
place   a   careful    examination   wai
made nf the mui ks in the snow, from
which  il   wus  learned  Ibal the de
ceased had  been   walking   from the
time he si ruck the trail, and hnd ap
pareiitly fallen over backwards.   From
the impression In the snnw it is evi
dent he  had either fallen wilh considerable ftu-je or had lain there some
lime.   He hnd, however, regained hi*
feet and gone a few  steps  when  he
again fell and after a severe snuggle
to  continue his  journey, was over
overcome hy cold and exhaustion, and
fell face downwards in the snow.   The
al Unisphere   being   helow  zero   it  is
natural to suppose that he expired in a
short tune.
The body was brought to Midway
and Dr. Junes, district coroner, was
notified, bul did not deem an Inquest

with the deceased in the ranch on
which he lived, will arrive tomorrow
and take charge of the remains, when
the burial will lake place to the Midway cemetery,

A Day Witli an Editor,
The editor of the Stuinplown Gn-
j-etle entered his "den" one morning
recently. It was one of those cold,
frosty looming of the lute fall, when
Ihe ehill wind penetrates one's summer
clothe*, nnd reminds him of the fnct
that whiter is approaching, nnd Ihal
con! has advanced in price.
The editor "deposited Iiis t.ill, liitik
form iu the liixuiinus office clniir, and
burled his feet in a pile of exchange*.
"Why don't you huild n fire?" asked
lln editor, pensively, us Dick, the office
hoy, stuck his held through the doorway of the ihin hoard partition, which
separated the "den" from the office
"Ain't no con)," promptly replied
Dick, as he executed a wur dance to
Improve his ciicdalion.
The editor well knew there was no
coal. He sal in silent thought for a
few moments,
"Dick, do you think we need a fire?"
he dually asked,
2"'0oilMe i today's press day, an' the
ink's harder lhan a brick," chattered
the oflice hoy,
"Well, take these old papeis and
mart a fire, while I go out and rustle
some coal."
By it process known only to lhe profession the coal wan "rustled," und
sunn a roaring fire caused the glnotn
and chill to disappear, and the woik of
getting out the Gazette was well
under wuy.
Under the inspiring inlliience of a
win in lli'c it i.ii lhe "glowing" columns
of lhe Glohe Democrat, the editor pro
• ceded lo wrile his regular weekly
lender, hy clipping a column editorial I
headed "The Unparalleled Prosperity '
of Our Country,"
"That's a elrioher," mused the editor,
ns he handed the uniclo to Dick, "nnd
completely knocks the wind nut of
those fellows who are continually
howling ahout inaugural ing a hetter
system. Why, we don't want anything hetter. Look at the money in
the hanks only wail ing a chance—"
Further iiieilitallon was interrupted
hv the appearance of the expressman,
wilh a package conlaiilng the "patent
side" of the Gawile, the most prominent dccoral ive feature of which wns
an artistically printed label, which
rend, "U 0, D,"
The edilorof tlieStnmptown Gazelle
moved uneasily in hi* chair.
"Say, just leave lhe package nnd I
111 lie dnwn in a few minutes nnd set-
he picked up the package and departed.
The editor again sought ciuisulation
in the inspiring pages of  theG.-D,,
and ivroie the following item lo''lill
out" the first column on the editorial
page: 'Any one   who is dissatisfied
wiih the unparalleled good times given
us hy an n II-wise nil mini., ra I ion, slinulil
promptly he deported."
Dick, the oflice hoy, appeared on the
scene and anki-d for copy,
"Dick, where is John?" asked'the
ililor,  suddenly becoming nwaie of
tlie fact that the erstwhile foreman
hnd not put in his appearance.
Dick grinned,  and  replied : '. lid
ins night he goin' to quit 'less you paid
liim    somctliin'    on   the   lasl. thiee
months.  Said he was tired of livln'
nu wind jam and promises."
The editor groaned, but was not to
he dan ii i ed hy a small thing like that.
Pulling off his coat, he proceeded to
"make up" the forms, lie hnd not yet
decided upon a plun of action whereby
he could secure the "palenl" side nf
tlie Gazette, without which no paper
would appear. He trusted implicitly
iu that "all-wise" Providence Ihal was
guiding lhe nation to—wliere? Me had
faced the same difficulty many times
liefore, and had safely pulled Ihrough
without missing nu issui). 'Twas 'rue,
the Gazette had several I hues heen a
little "late," hut this due entirely to a
"press of husiness,"
The "forms" were ready at lust.
"Dick, I'll go down aud gut the
'ready-print.' If anybody cuines in,
just lell them I've gone down to the
bank, and that I'll he hack in u few
Hours passed bul. nn one appeared
lo hreak lhe solilode of ihe office and
Dick's reverie, exce| t tlie caloiised
waier company's cn'lcclor,
"Where's the hnss ?" he nBked.
"lie's mil," replied Di .;. "He snid
several hours ago he'd he back iu a
minute nr two "
"Well, I can't wait, but while I'm
here I'll jii»t, cut, nlf iho water supply,
