Houston Challenges Smith Curtis to
Resign and the Challenge
Is Accepted.
Victoria, May ».— ThU afternoon and
evening the house whs treated tn a
Hiirring delate on the reporl. of the
loan railway liill. The I.ill wuh completed in committee at two o'clock
thin morning. Tallow's motion practically excluding the V. P. R. from the
Const to KiHilemiy contract was then
defeated liy a vole of 2(1 lo l;i. On report this afternoon, however, Tatlow
revived his resolution in a modilled
form liy moving that in giving a suhsidy for the Ooast to Kootenay road
preference should he given to n compel itive line.
During a speech hy Curtis some very
sharp passages took place hetween lie
and the premier. The latter said it
was uot the intention of the government to give a contract to ihe (,'. P, It.
hut t.n Ihe road offering the hest hin-
gain, and added that if the V, V. k K.
would agree to Ihe terms of the hill
they would give it to the V. V. A: E.
lo night. Furlher questioned by
Curtis the premier said that lie did
nol agree with Miirtin that, the (.'. P,
It. was the only road which could
huild the line, lie added that, the
piovince could not have a competitive
Ihu-, hut that the only way to get a
competitive line waa to have ihe control of rales.
The premier finally lost his temper
anil said he was willing to rei-ign to-
nit-hi and go lo the country on the
lii 1. (lur'.is retorted, "Do It, do it."
Houston then followed with a challenge to (Hii tis ihal, he resign snd uu

lion to Martin und if allowed to make
one speech, declaring he would heat

followed Curtis and ki lacked him as
Inconsisient iu a muling speech. He
referred to the fact that compel ition
iu coal hetween Dutisnitlir and tlie
company headed hy Kohius, al-i. one
of the greatest philanthropists in
Canada, had not kept down the price
of coal.
Eherts spoke for the government,
holding that on Saturday tin- V. V. k
E. promoters had a conference with
lhe government, at which Dunsmuir
offered lo give them the contract for
the Coast to Kootenay roud al once if
ihey would accept the government's
terms. Instead Ihey had otf ned lo

He asked for the keys, hut Mr. Taylor refused to give tip possession,
Mr. Kennedy hroitght iu a carpenter
and ordered him to take off the old
lock and put on a new one. Thts carpenter wus warned hy Mi. Taylor to
leave the door alone, hut the workman did as he was told hy Mr. Ken'
nedy, and when he had finished handed
the key to him,
Mean while Mr.Taylor had telephoned
for Mr. li. I.. Reid, thi solicitor of the

Mr. Kennedy was taken to jail, He

A Large Body of High tirade Ore Has
Been Struck at the -oo-l-'oot Level.
A rich body of ore has been struck
on the 400-foot level in the west end of
the Cariboo. The face of the drift nl
Ihut level showing six feet ot high
grade ore. The marked success of the
development work in the Cariboo dining ihe last two months has been phenomenal, and has thoroughly eonvinc
eil tbe utaiiitgeinent of the future possi
bilities of the pioperty, depth giving
greater solidity and richness to th
ore hody, and though dnuhtless breaks
or faiths will be encountered, they will
occur with less frequency, and the
plans for increasing the output of the
mine, which have been for some time
in contemplation, may now he carried
out with tbe utmost confidence.
The Cariboo stands pre eminent as
the free gold mine of Briiish Columbia.
Ils unbroken mill run of over seven
years, its constant record as a dividend
payer, with its present remarkable
showing nf a large hody of high
grade ore in the levels, must place this
properly in the premier rank as one
if not Ihe most successful of the milling
undertakings of the province.
Though the Carihoo overshadows all
other properties of Ihe camp, then
are many claims of undoubted merit
whose owners have as far as means
permitted, endeavored to develop, but
owing to lack of capital many of these
properties hnve scarcely mm* than
passed the prospective stage. Tbe
huilding of the new wagon road this
summer from Camp McKinney to Rock
Creek will pass thinugh one of the
most promising mineral seel tons in the
vicinity of the camp, and when finished
will lie the stage road, being shorter
and a better grade tbanthe old road,
and its construction will be of the
greatest benefit to tbe camp, more particularly lo the owners of the War
Kagle, Le Hoi. Homes take, Triangle,
Dayton, Night Hawk, .Inn Crow, etc.,
lo whom it will give means of transportation, and whose pro|ierties are
well worth the attention of mining

Tbe Okanogan (iold Mines. Limited,
situated near Oroville, is again to resume work on a large scale. Tin-
affairs of the company have been iu
lmd shape for some time. A large

An extraordinary general meeting
of the coinpaiiy has heen called at
Hossland for May 27 lo organise the
coinpaiiy and to resume work.
The reports from the Okanogan mine
show that at present Ihere is a considerable amount of ore in sight of
sufficiently high grade to pay off all
the debts of lhe company. The uttli/.-
ni inn of ibis nre, along with the,money
available under l he plan of reconstruction and the placing nf development
work always ahead ol the requirements of lhe mill, will, in the opinion
of the directors, Boon dear the mine of

Of a palace sleeping rar,
Keeping tab upon Ihe water tank,
As you smoke your lasl cigar?
Have you observed Ihe tumbler?

His face is pale and drawn,
Poms paregoric in it,
You hope his pr in is gone.

That a seidlitz powder nightly

And, ou his heels, comes some one
Who fancies ''something hoi,"
And takes a swig of Itadwny
To touch tbo chilly spot,
One takes a morphine tablet,

And another drinks a bumper
To help a blue pill down ;

leading members of lhe Briiish Colunihia Copper Conipany, which has done
such extensive and successful work in
developing the Mother Lode mine in
Deadwood camp.   The No. 7 was acquired under bond hy Col. John  Weir
for himself and New Yoik associates
about the same time as they secured
the  Mother Lode and  il   was  first
worked, concurrently with the latter,
in 1808-7.   A shaft was sunk 130 feet,
and between 100 and 600 feet of cross-
cutting and drifting was done at that
depth, this work resulted in its being
conclusively shown that the lead gave
excellent promise of proving permanent.   The ore is quartz, iitineralixed
with   galena   and   carrying   values
chiefly in  gold  and  silver.    Surface
croppings indicated that tlie lead was
continuous for about 700  feet  in the
northern part of the claim, hut higher;
up the hill, lo lhe sooth of  the shaft,
an old ravine, filled wilh wash, cut it
off.   A prospect shaft sunk still farther
south picked up the lead again.   After
the. year 1897 very little work was done
on the claim, only  sufficient In  fulfill
the requiienienis of the law in Ihis
connection, until a crown grant was
obtained, and since then no work was
done  underground   until   Ihis  year.
When ihe No. 7 Company was organized, a year or more ago, mine build- j
ings were erected,  mine timbers and
cord wood were cut and other preparations were made for further opening
np the mine, hut Ihis intention was
abandoned for a time, and attention
was concentrated on the Mother Lode.
Now, however, conditions being more
favorable, Ihe No. 7 is to be developed.

is as under : Republic, shaft 100 feet;

An  Ottawa   correspondent   of the
Mail, says an Knglisli gentleman visiiing Ollaiva, tells a good story almut
Mr. Dan Mann, I he railway contractor,
which he vouches for as correct.   It
was when Mr. Mann was in China two
years ago looking after a hig railway
concession.   One evening at Ihe eluh
in Tien-Tsin an altercation broke out
lietween a Russian and a French of
fleer.   Mr. Munn, who was present,
was appealed to as umpire, and gave
his decision in favor of the Frenchman.
This so incensed Ibe Uuwian that nnxt
morning he sent a second to Mr. Mann
demanding satisfaction,   Only for  u
moment was the sturdy Canadian railroader surprised, and then recollecting
