He Held the Floor for Over Eight
Hours-Railway Bill at Last.
Victoria, April 30,—A remarkable
session of the house wns brought to a
close this morning at 0.30, when Jos.
Martin moved the adjournment of the
debate on the budget, whieh had been
in  progress from  8.30 the previous,
evening.   The governnient last nighl
insisted that the opposition   should
complele the debate on the budgets and
allow  the house  to  go into supply
before the house rose.   Oliver, one of
the opposition speakers, declared that
this was a scandal and a brutal act on
the part of the government und insist-
ed that it was an attempt to hurt
discussion on the whole subject.   The
opposition declared that as a prol est
they would talk out the session.   McBride accordingly started in shortly
after midnight in  a speech againBt
time, while the opposition  members
fortified themselves with voluminous
documents to take it up when he became  exhausted.   Twice during the
night the opposition called a truce and
urged the governiuenl. to consent to
adjournment.   Debates on these and
ou poinls of order consumed perhaps
two hours.   Martin, who engineered
the whole thing,  refused to accede,
saying that the opposition had threatened to obstruct tbe estimates and
must take   the   consequences,   and
should not ask for quarter,   McBride's
achievement was a surprise  tn  his
friends and supporters, as he kept up
the address for from eight to  nine
hours, with  few  intermissions.   The
opposition k'pt him supplied with gin
Sixes, throat troches, etc. The govern
ment was obliged to keep a large see
tion of its following ou the floor to
maintain u quorum, as Ihe opposition
once left, with the exception of Mc
Bride, and lhe house was without n
I quorum.   On   the  conclusion  of McBride's speech, Martin himself moved
the adjournment of the delate, as the
opposition  had material  to  prolong
matters past endurance.   The opposi
tion are flushed with victory.
Victoria, B.C., May 2.-The C,hiel
Commissioner of Lands and Works announced iu the legislature this evening
that the government had received two
offers to huild the railway from tin
coast to Ihe Boundary dislrict Ihrough
the Hope mountains, generally known
us thu Victoria, Vancouver k Eastern
Kailway. One offer was from tin-
Ollalla Copper Mining & Smelting
Company and the other* from
McLean Bros. of Vancouver
The government his entered into a contiact with the McLeans. They
ask for a cash subsidy to be returned
to the province through the percent
age of the earnings of the road, and
lhe road lobe exempt from taxation
for a term of years.
The governnient on Monday will
bring down the agreement wilh
Messrs. McTiean Bros, and also a bill
to subsidize the Canada Northern
Kailway from Bute Inlet to the eastern
boundary of the province to connect
wiih the line being built from the
Great Lakes.
Crow'3 Nest Coal Fields.
Ottawa, April 80.—Ool, E, ,t,Tay
lor,nf Pittsburg,Pa.,the mlnhiR engin
eer, who made an examination "f the |
Crow's Nest. l-iu,8 Coal company's Held
in British Ooiumbia, and who win sent
to recommend to the Canadian government the proper place to make a
selection of lhe 50.(0) acres, which
would be-of an average value of Ihe
entire coal field, bus innd* his report,
and was presented to the House yes
terday. He stales that the coalfield
is locaied in a inoiiiiliiinoiis country
surrounded by Ihe valleys bf the Elk
river, Michael creek, Flathead river,
and Lodge Pole creek, The lenglh of
the seams from south to north is 80
miles, and ils width about 12 niil-s.
He states in some places there i.s a
total workable thickness of(K) feet, and
if ihe two seams of coal were found in
Morrissey creek, these, together with
the live seams already exposed, would
make a total thickness of 152 feet of
coal, and adds that he does not see any
reason why these senilis should not be
found lo extend to Michael ereek.
He recommends to Ihe government
that all tht coal lying hetween Morris
sny creek and the outcropping nf the
senms on Lodge Pole creek he selected,
and that a dividing line be drawn
from a point at junction of north anil
south branch of Morrissey creek, neat
the openings of the Crow's Nejl Pjos
company, from this point north until
it intersects with a line running east
and west through Ihe most southern
side of the property now owned hv
that company on Marten creek, and
that lbe greater part of the50,0110acres
be selected to lhe east and soulh.'of
these lines. In conclusion, he strongly
recommends the selection nf the field
at Morrissey creek, as the present developments Indicate that 1 he coal then-
is at Its maximum thickness and lies
in the inountain so that it can he economically mined; atul there will lie two
main lines nf railways easily accessible
from this point.

(iiirdom of this place seized 18 head nl
cuttle belonging to John Tymiui, of
Riverside, Washington, which hud
lieen driven through Midway and
secreted near Hosier's, without paying
the duty imposed on nil cattle coming
In from the American side.
Tynian is wanted hy the American
authorities for shooting with inl ent to
kill. He was living with a half hreed
woman in Riverside, who was also
intimate with another man. Tynian
returning one day to the house and
llniling the stranger there fifed live
shots at him from a revolver. Evidently Tynian was not. an expert at
shooting, as out of lhe Hve shots he
was not successful in hitting his man.
Init put one bullet through his hat.
Tyinan was arrested and hound over
io answer to lho charge on $250 honds.
He immediately took his stock and
came across the line at Midway, hut
avoided the. customs. A week ago
Insl, Sunday night he remained at the
Hotel Spokane, and shortly after
Deputy Shei iif John Kendall arrived
al lhe same hotel. Had he hut made
known his mission, Tyman would
dimhtlt-ra have soon heen within the
clutches of the law, hut this the deputy
sheriff failed to do and lhe man got
away. The sheriff then wenl. to Greenwood, hoping there to locate his victim, Imt the delay caused hy this move
gave Tyman an opportunity to gel
sufficient start to avoid heing overtaken, When the officer s'aried in
pursuit the following morning, hpun
Information furnished him of the direc-
I|on Tyman had taken, he was too late
lo overtake Ills inan, who is still at
large.

the loss of the animals, hut I his ii failed
to do. Whether the conipnny is
liable or not is a question tn he de.
cided. The following taken from the
Winnipeg Free Press would appear
that the cattle guard question i-i de
manding the attention of the Dunlin
ion government nt the present time.
It suys:
The cattle guard question seems In
be one of considerable Interesl in the
enst judging by tlte turmoil ahoul il in
parliament  this   session.    Mr.  Lan
caster of Lincoln and  Ningnin  Intro
duced a measure making railway companies  responsible    for  damages  lo
cattle on railways  where  no guards
were provided,   The regular course is
for all bills affecting railways in be
referred to the  Hallway   Onmniittee.
Mr. Lancaster, however, wanted the
house lo pronounce iipnn the question
tl'haod, without any reference lo the
committee.   To this  deviation  from
the regular procedure the in ijorlty of
the house would not cons'-nt, and th
bill went to the proper tribunal. Ther
il. was discussed for two or ihree days.
The minister of railways offered   to
bring in legislation next year, nnd in
the meantime to conduct a thorough
Inquiry as to the.best form  of entile
guard  which   shnuld he adopted, a
variety of types being under eonsl let-
nl inn by railways.   Against  any such
proposition Mr. Lnucnster stood out.
hut the committee Accepted lhe proposition of lhe Minister of  Railways
and recommended to the house that
the bill be  not  proceeded   with  this
session.   Upon the report coming up
in the house, the  light  was  renewed.
Mr. Lnucnster opposing it,   The  Pre
inier repeated Mr.   Blair's  statement
that the governnient   would Inform
itself on the quest ion   during  the  recess and would  he  prepared  to deal
wilh it nexi  session ;  and  the   house
thereupon confirmed the act inn nf the
llailway (Vminiitlee.   The understanding is that by, April 1st,1803 the Railway Committee of the Privy Council

The train arrived shortly before two o'cloek and in a very few
minutes the game wns called, which
lasted about Iwo hours and resulted
in a victory for thc visiting team of

A small shower, of rain whirh lasted
but.-ifew minutes, slightly detracted
from what otherwise was a beauiiful
afternoon. The visitors relurned
about half past five all seemingly Well

tions,
Mr. Curtis' object in introducing this
act is lo make law what has long heen
a custom, and thereby do away with
the evil of placing legislators under
obligation lo the transportation companies, who in return for tlie courtesy
extended expect legislators to look
favorably upon any hillscomingbefore
the house that are beneficial to them.
Thsre is little doubt but the giving of
these passes hns in the past had evil
effects, and if the act introduced he
adopted, those entitled to such free
transportation will assume: no obligations and will therefore feel more free
to oppose matters that are hostile to
the interests of the transportation
companies Imt favorable to the public.

NOTES FROM THE MINES.
The kilt, it ar-penro, is not to disappear from the uniforms of the British
nrtny, despite reports to that effect.
Mi. Brodriok, secretary of war, speaking mi this poinl in (he commons recently, announced that ihe Highlander
regiments will retain the kilt fotfull
dress, and instructions will lie issued
for providing a kilt uf khaki, or some
invisible colot, on active service, as is
now done in South Africa. He slated
the uniform regulations are general
for the whole army, and exception is
inndc in the case of the Highlanders.
The distinctive tartans of the Highland
regiments will he made use ot, as in
the pasl.
[t is expected that parliament during
its present session will provide that
the official celebration of liie birthday
of King Edward shall fall on May2llh,
although the actual birthday is on
Nov, Uth. May 21th is already a statutory holiday and is likely to remain
one for all time in honor nf the memory of Victoria Ihe Good ; and it will
be convenient also on that date to pay
our respects to the reigning sovereign.
We already have holidays enough,and
lo spare. There is a precedent for this
proposed action, George Ihe Third's
bill Inlay, June llli, having been observed in Canada as the King's birthday dining the tno succeeding reigns.
The Chinese are beginning to receive
considerable attention throughout the
province. At present Ihe council of
the city of Nelson is considering the
advisability of placing a tax on lhe
Chinese vegetable pedlars. The. question came up hefore a meeting of the
city dads, and as usual Ihe Celestials
met with a few sympathisers, who
thought if a tax were imposed it should
he hut slight, and certainly not $25, as
the city solicitor contended was the
sum I hat could he imposed upon them
according lo the act. However, as the
council was not quite clear on the
question it referred the matter to
the Attorney General to decide if it
was justified in imposing a licence.
The arguments advanced in favor of
the Chinese were simply ridiculous,
and so long as the people nf this province continue to deal with this important question hy considering lhe interests nf the Chinese liefore they do
those of the white residents of British
Columbia, just so long will the China
men continue to wax fat and drain
this rich province of the money that
shnuld be kept in circulation within
its boundaries.

steady rains of the past two days will
make the mads too soft for heavy

Richard Plewman.managing director

It is only a question ofa short time
until that portion of the Coast-Kootenay Railway from Curlew to Midway
will be construcfed. 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.
Show your good judgment.by buying
now. Midway property will make you

P. Burns k Co. have decided to move
their slaughter houses from their present situation, u short distance above
Greenwood, to the Ingrlth ranch near
Midway, and will here slaughter all
the catlle used for beef at tbeir various
shops in the Boundary counI ry. Nearly
all the cattle used liy this ft roi come
from west of here, nnd to drive Ihem
lo (jlreenwoiid udded consideralile
expense. Hot only will the new
arrangement lessen Ihe expetise, hut
will also have a tendency to make
superior beef, as it is generally admitted that the more caltle are jammed
around the tougher the beef is, and as
the beef of this dislrict is none too
tender at any time, any Improvement
in ihis way would lie favoraUy looked
upon hy the consumer us well ns by lhe
meat dealers. This move on the pari
of I'. Burns k Oo, is looked upon liy
(lie people of this town as a recognh ion
liy that Iir ui of the importance Midway
is going lo occupy as the distributing
point for the enliie Boundary country
as well as u large dislrict wesl. of here,
which Held no doulit litis enterprising
linn will contest in lhe near ful ore,
for it has ever lieen Ihe Hrm's policy lo
push forward Into new fields so soon
as they olfer sulllcietit husiness lo
juslify their attention, The moving
of ihe slaughter houses of 1*. Burns k
Co, to Midway in itself is of little sig-
nifican *e,hol the motive thai, prompted
the change is Indicative of that shrewd
husiness Drill's opinion of the important
position Midway is lo occupy as a

Railway Officials' Shortage.
W, 0, Morris, assislant general
manager of the Kettle VhIU')' lines,
has made public an official statement
respecling Ihe defalcations of T, E,
Birlieck and W. C. Haywood, until
recently the general freight and pa*-
senger ngont and auditor respectively
of that coui|iany,   Mr. Morris said :
"The complele audit shows a shortage of $5,831 in the accounts of Birheck
and Haywood. They misappropriated
refunds made hy the Canadian Pacific
and other roads on account of excess
of freight charges for mateiial anil
equipment brought in for our road.
Their official positions gave them
exceptional facilities for speculating.
Over $1,000,000 have passed through
Ihe hands of General Manager Holland
and myself, and the company and iis
officers feel that the shortage discovered is a small affair, considering Ihe
targe amount disbursed and the
numher of men lhat hold responsible
positions uf trust. The complele audit
exculpates every official except the
absconding ones. We are taking steps
to secure their apprehension."
This Makes It Bad.
The Australian ballot law was adopt
ed in Colorado before the state gave
tbe suffrage tn women, This law provides that the voting booths must lie
bo constructed that the voter's legs
may he seen below the knees.
Information has been received from
Spokane that Mr. Coyle, whu is under
engagement to make the permanent
survey of tbe West Fork section of the
Midway-Vernon railway, is arranging
matters preliminary to putting surveyors in Ihe Held as soon as weather
conditions shall he favorable to expeditious work. It is stated that the
survey Is to he lompleted in July next.
It is the Intention of the 0 P. H. to
shortly place a Shay engine on Ihe
spur running to the Mother Lode mine
from the British Columbia Copper
company's smelter at Oreenwood,
This is made necessary because the
capacity nf the smeller has been Increased, This will make Iwo Shays
