The party lino issue in British Columbia politics is ut lust
clearly drawn.
Following upon the dismissal
of Prior, McBride was called up-
oto us leader of the opposition,
to form u government. He accepted the call his original intention being to form a coalition government, his party being made up of liberals as well
as conservatives. The conservatives did not favor this arrpnge-
ment, so tlie premier formed a
straight conservative government.
Themajority of the opposition
Were agreed in the opinion that
the party which hud  won   thi'.
fijjht, and whose leader had logically beeu sent for by his honor to assume the control of af
fairs should commonly purtici
pate in the fruits  of that  vie
tory. At the same time due recognition was recorded   to  the
clamor throughout the country
wr party lines,. imjHhe bj^niijfu
of some of the new  members
seemed to be that to go to the
country  on any   other   basis
would be to invite defeat.
Finding this sentiment prevailing, the Liberal members
gracefully accepted the situation and intimated that after
what had been expressed could
not only lose in dignity by consenting to serve longer in their
old relation. No vote, so it is
stated, was taken, but the situation was tacitly accepted by
all present
The new premier, realizing
the debt he owes to his large
following of Liberals, who have
assisted very materially in
placing him in the position he
today occupies, says he is prepared to deal fairly with them,
lii the supply which is to be
voted, he wants no unfair advantage to be taken. He is
satisfied that the estimates tobe
presented for consideration of
the house to cover necessities of
the time intervening before the
house can be called together,
should be fairly distributed.
In line with this idea, a committee of the house composed of
live from each side, were asked
by McBride to undertake a revision ut the estimates, und to
consider any items which might
be of a contentious character.
Among Lilierals there is a dis-
positioti to accept the situation
philosophically    Men like Munroe, Oliver and  Paterson are
recognized as heavyweights of
theold opposition  party,  anil
without their prestige much of
what has been   accomplished
could not have taken place.   It
is probable that the disintegration of the party would have
come sooner had not Mr. McBride repudiated as  an error
and a slip of the tongue, on the
day of the defeat of the  Prior
government, a statement that
he favored an appeal tu the
country at once on party lines. 1
On every hand Liberals are
insisting that the party must
now be got together, its dif-
Coiitliiunil on Pugo I,
Operations are to be resumed
on the Athelstan mine, one of
the well-known properties of
Wellington camp, that has in
the past shipped considerable
ore to the smelters. David Ox

ordered by the management to
secure a force of men and start
work at once.
The property is owned by the
.Mhelstan  Gold    and   Copper
Mining Company, Limited, and
lias a capital of $50,000, the of-
iicers being, J. Anderson, president;   John [Mack,   vice-president; und W. J. Morrison, secretary-treasurer.     In   the year
1000 this  mine shipped about
1,200 tons of ore, largely to tlie
iranby smelter,   and  in   the
tore part of 1901 ubout 550 tons
were shipped to the Boundary
Falls smelter,   afterwards   ac-
•yired by the Sunset mine own-;
i-rs,   It is is understood that an
arrangement   hus now   been
mude with the Sunset smelter
to treat the ore at u low figure,
It being specially desirable for
mixing   with other ores tis a
llux.
Last winter the announcement wus made thut the Athelstan Co. hud disposed of its
property to the owners of the
Morrison mine, which is located
in Deadwood camp, and which
is preparing to ship to the Sunset smelter on u considerable
scale. This deal, however, was
not finally carried through, it
appears, and the property will
now be worked by the company
itself, and the ore sent to the
smelter on Boundary creek.
The total development work
done on the Athelstan consists
of ubout 450 lineal feet, which
includes two shafts, (10 and 76
feet deep, respectively. The
ore Is an arsenical iron, the
chief value being gold with u
little silver. The mine is directly on the Phoenix-Grand Forks
wagon rood, and is distant from
the end of the Winnipeg mine
spur about a mile, whence the
ore is sent to the smelters. The
Athelstan will be the first of
tlie three prominent shipping
mines in Wellington cump to
resume operations
Plans are afoot to treat the ore
at the mines.

Mark F. Madden of  Madden
Bros.,    Chicago,    arrived    in
Greenwood on Sunday and will
remain  there   for some  time.
He represents tlie Chicago interests in tlie Providence   Mining conipany.   On Monday tbe
conipany turned over to   William Fowler $12,500, being  the
linal installment, in connection
with the  $50,000 paid   for the
mine,   With that payment the
the Providence lins  established
a remarkable record among the
high grade  properties  of tho
■woi'ld. - Excepting  the   init ial
payment of $12,500,  the Provi-  '
dence, from the proceeds of its
ore, has   met the  cost of development, of mining and all
expenses incidental to mining
operations and all other installments of  the   purchase price.
There is still a substantial balance in the treasury.
Last week this company received from the Trail smelt r
returns for a car of ore eoui iii-
ing 41,070 pounds, or a little
over 20 tons. The returns follow: Gold, $220.40; Silver,
$11704.45; Lend, 40.42; .$4027.27.
This gives au average of about
$200 to the ton.
In the north drift the ore
body is strong and of exceptionally high valuee.
Returns have boen received
from the last shipment of Elkhorn ore sent to the Trail
smelter. The shipment of 20
tons netted $2407.
Mr. Fowler has seven men at
work on the Defiance. Ho is
systematically w< irking to j)up
the leud and is not worrying
about results.

director of  the Cariboo mine,

SATURDAY,   JUNE fl, 1003,
The Ganioy investigation has
resulted in Hon, J. E. Stmtton
being exonerated from having
anything to do with Gamey, the
charges being entirely without
foundation,
The provincial parliament
prorogued on Thursday after
passing supplies, There will bo
no meeting of the legislature
until after the election, winch
is likely to take place in September. The new house will
not likely meet until next
spring.
EXIT PRIOR,
The Prior government is
gone. The old wreck that,the
late premier received from Mr.
Dunsmuir is on the rocks; and
though the gullunt colonel trioti
to "save the rotten craft by
throwing overboard a part of
the crew, and trimming hi.*
sails to every breeze that blows,
he could not avert the disaster.
It is safe to say that this give^
general satisfaction throughout the country. Hon. Kit-hurt,
McBride has been called upoi
to form a government, and af
ter consulting the leading conservatives has decided to forn:
a conservative government
Thus government on dominioi
party lines has been inaugurat
ed in British Columbia, and i.
is to be hoped that uu ecu oi
hotter government has com
menced. The new premier hu
been severely criticized for tin
course he has taken, and is ac
cused of treachery toward Mr.
Oliver and others who wen
largely instrumental in bringing about the downfall of Col
onel Prior, and the consequeii!
ascendancy of Mr. McBride.
Mr. Oliver is deserving of praise
from the people of British Columbia for the part he took in
Columbia and Western land
scandal, but he only did his duty
as a representative of the peo
pie, aud it koes follow by any
merns that he should be rewarded with a cabinet position.
Moreover, if Mr. Oliver is of
tlie stuff that cabinet officers
are made of, and desires a pos^
ition of that kind, he can afford to wait. It will not be
long before the people will have
their hearing, and Mr. Oliver
belongs to a party that has a
good chance of winning in the
coming contest. In the meantime we trust that Mr. McBride
who is by no means a political
heavyweight, and his colleagues
will bear in mind that while
nominally ministers of the
crown, they are in reality servants of thepviople; that they are
only common clay, with u mixture, wo hope, of sand that will
enable them to resist the encroachments of corporations
und others upon the rights of
the people.
CANADA   AND  CARNEGIE
Andrew Carnegie, tho iron
and steel king, who is noted,
amongst other things, for his
his generous gift of millions for
the purpose of founding librar
ies, judging from his views on
the future of the British
Empire and his knowledge
of the history of Canada past
and present, is sadly in need of
a small library for his own
personal and immodiate use.
In tho role of a prophet he
says that "Canada has no future
except as part of the United
States" he may be right in this
since we havo not the future of
Canada within our limited vision, but we have reason to
doubt Mr. Carnegie's prophetic
gifts. Tho possession of millions does not malco'a man a
prbpho.!.,   Mr.   Ckrnogie    is a

power in the industrial world,
but thbre' ure   many   'other
realms in which he has no particular  standing, and we believe the realm of prophesy is
one of them.   Spealijing .of the
population of Canada, he suys:
"She has only added 5:38,000 to
her people in ten years, and of
these 440,000 have come from
abroad."   We doubt tlie correctness of these figures, but even
if they are correct, we are quite
sure thut the greatness, prosperity und    happiness    of  a
country does not depend upon
.lie number of its inhabitants,
The Dominion of Canada is
• inly 36 years old.    Before that
line in consisted of a nilniber
>f separate provinces independent of one another, with the exception   of the two   Cunadas,
vhich had a   legislative union,
•'or many years after the oldei
irovinces were uuited by thi
British   North American act,
ihere was no reul union excep..
in name.   Within the lust few
,'ears,  however,   Canada   hai-
made groat strides.   There ha*
leen n noticeable   growth   ii
national sentiment and indus-
rial progress, and in  populu
ion also.
Mr.Curnegieis not well posted
n modern Canadian history.
Ie evidently does not know
hat since 1890, the time that
the McKinley tariff was put into force in the United States,
lunudu hus not only recovered
from the severe blow d(?ult. to
its trade with thatcountry, but
ms actually more trade per
capita than uny other country
inder the sun. For the last
few months the number of immigrants coming to Oanada is
iurger in proportion to its population, than the number coming to the United States. Within
the lost few years Canada has
discovered itself, eos been discovered by the British, by the
Americans, by everybody who
is up-to-date, it seems, except
Mr. Andrew Carnegie whom we
advise, before he submits to
any more interviews concerning the destinies of nations to
to add a few books to his
library.

the piers were successfully re>
moved by dynamite, thus pre
venting its destruction.
The residence of J, B. Desros-
ier, near (ireenwood, was completely destroyed by fire lust
Monday night. The loss is
about $2,000, with $800 insurance. A defective flue is supposed to be responsible for the
blaze. The residence was outside the city limits and up on a
steep sidehill where it was impossible for the firemen to render any assistance.
John Bushey, the anarchist
who was arrested at Walla
Walla for threatheningtoussas-
sinate president Roosevelt, was
once employed by P. Burns &
Co. at Greenwood, as a sausage
maker, nnd while there is said
to have indulged in wild anar-
chial vaporings. He applied for
membership in the socialist
league but was refused admission. Afterwards he went to
Hossland where ho was ordered
out of town by the police, and
a similar reception was accord
ed him in Hpokane.
to now a two uays nieei in or-1
der to have time for the numerous events.   The generous prizes that are ottered bring good
horses from a distance, which,
together with those owned locally furnish as good races as
may be seen in   cities   many
times the size of Grand Forks.
There will also be many other
attractions besides horse races,
such as hose contests, base ball
matches, etc.   Secretary W. A.
Hal-kin last year performed his
duties with great credit to himself and the fact that he is again
the chief push of the committee
is sufficient guarantee that this
years's celebration will be inev-
ry particular a success.
The principal events will be
as follows:
Three-fourths mile, purse $250.
Grand Forks Derby, one mile,
purse $100.
Three-eights mile, purso $175,
Half-mile, in heats, purse $250.
One mile race, purse $300.

The slate of ministers which'.
McBride will ultimately submit
to his honor is said to be as follows:
Premier and chief commissioner of lands and works, R.
McBride; minister of finance R.
G. Tatlow; attorney general,
Charles "Wilson; minister of
mines, R. F. Green; provincial
secretary, J. P. Fulton; president of the executive council, A.
E. McPhillips.
R, E. Gosnell will continue to
act as the premier's private
secretary,
Joseph Martin placed his resignation in the hands of Stuart
Henderson chairman of the
liberal executive, which held a
meeting at Victoria on Wednesday.
The reason for Martin's action, as officially stated, was to
avoid friction and promote harmony in the party.
But Martin's action avoided
,tl;e   calling  of n convention
which had been proposed spec
ially for the selection of a new
liberal leader. Martin's resig
nation is regarded as a tactical
move eminently successful from
Martin's point of view an slaving otf a convention at least between now and the forthcoming provincial elections.
The plan of the executive is
that the party shall go leader-
less to the coining elections,
that local conventions shall be
be called in the different ridings to nominate liberal candidates, and that the new leader shall be selected from among
the candidates elected at a caucus previous tothe meeting of
the house.
There is now a disposition on
the part of the Liberals on all
sides to accept the decision of
the executive not to hold a
convention but to allow a committee tp arrange the campaign
and allow the members of the
next house to select their own
leader. This committee will
consist of the following;
Vancouver Island,—R. Hall,
W. Sloan, J. Jardine.
Kootenay—The Interior District Liberal Council, Duncan
Ross, secretary.
Lower mainland—J. Martin,
J. C, Brown, J. Oliver and W.
J. McMillan.
Middle country—S. Henderson, H. G. Miller, M. P. Gordon,
R. Borland and D. Stoddard.
