WEEK'S DOINGS
In the Provincial House—Joe
Martin Steals a Seat.
Oovernrnent Anxious to Form a Coalition With Opposition, but it Is
Doubtful if Arrangements  Suit.
Victoria, Feb. 21.—Crowded galleries witnessed today one of the most
disgraceful scenes in the history of lie
legislature of British Columbia, when
ineiiiliers resorted to personal violence
in a dispute an the occupation of one of
the chairs.
The trouble all arose out of Ihe fact
lhat Mr. Martin is now regarded as a
stippnticr ot the governnient, and has
declared in interviews that he is no
longer leader of the opposition, and
the other fact that Richard McBride is
now leader of the opposition of sixteen. The latter held that their leader
was entitled to the seat usually eld
hy the leader of the opposition, while
Mr. Martin contended that it was his
seat. The altercation hega. i liefore
the speaker took the chair, Mr. Martin
calling Mr. McBride, who had taken
th'i s»at, a bully and a blackguard.
The latter pointed out that his desk
had lieen placed there by tlie sergeatn
at arms aud had his name on it, Mr.
Martin stood behind Mr. McBride's
chair, and as soon as the latter rose,
when prayers were being read, lie
slipped lu behind him ill front of the
chair. Smith Curtis, who sal next
Mr. McBride, sought to je.ik the chub
from Mr. Mattin, and pushed his own
forward for Mr. McBride.
As mon as prayers were concluded,
"Jm*" dropped into the chair and Cur
tis grabbed him and pushed the chair
luck. Gilmour, of Vancouver, aud
Mclnnes, of South Nanaimo, jumped
on Curtis and held his arms, while
Ha-.vl burnt hwaite of Nanaimo, came
to the assistance of Curtis. Finally
",loe" got the chair, while McBride
perched himself on the desk.
Thus matters stood all aflernonn,
while a hitter and noisy debate was
carried on upon lhe question of whi
was entitled to lhe seat. The govern
meut refrained, with the exception of
Mr, Prentice, from taking any part or
asserting autlioriiy. Finally Speaker
I'ooley refused to rule in tlie matter,
and on its going to the whole house n
ier.rrlut.iiMi ottered liy Mr. Mclnnes,
that members should occupy the seats
held by Ihem last session, was carried
mi a straight party division of 11) to 1(1.
The scrap between Martin and Curtis
was greeted wiih cries of "shame" and
"put Martin oul" from the packed gal
lories.
Victoria, Fei'. 25.—The legislative
Assembly spent u couple of hours today
discussing ihe teports in Ihe morning
papers of the unseemly fight ovtr the
possession of a certain chair in the
legislative chamber yesterday and
'Inn aiij'imned until Monday. There
is said to he a deal pending for an
amalgamation of the government aud
opposition forces, for ihe present session at least, and the dropping of Jos
eph Martin and his followers by tbe
governiuenl. It is further said that
tlie opposition decline to accede to the
request unless Mr. E. V. Bodwell, the
opposition candidate for lhc vacancy
for the city of Victoria, is included
and that his election lie allowed to go
by acclaintnation. It is stated freely
here that the government is tired of
the humiliation to which ils alliance
wilh Joseph Martin is constantly sub
jectingit.
Victoria, Feb. 28.-Tlie air is full of
Intrigue today. The novellllnent is
understood to he anxious to form a
coalition wilh the opposition, hut ll
caucus of the latter held last evening
is undei-tood to have lieen unfavorable
in these advances, Un the other hand
Mr. Martin has drafted a redistribution
bill, wliieh he has submitted to the
government and ask that it be passed.
Itis stated that the terms of this bill
are not accept able to some of the government's immediate supporters, who
are anxious lo lie relieved nf the neCes-
ity of supporting it. This will likely
provide for Ihe withdrawal of a mem
tier from Victoria and another from
Ksqiiimali and granting one lo the
Boundary district, ,'he total addition
to the present representation lieing
one, making a house of IS). Premier
Dunsmiiir may lesign, if the negotiations with the opposition fail, and ask
leave to appeal In the country, but it.
is believed that if he did so,l he governor
would not grant leave, seeing he has
failed to Oil the vacant portfolios. The
opposiiinn claim that they can lorm a
stiong governnient in such event, as
Mr. Dunsniiiir's present Supporters
would rather support them than Mar
tin.
RUSSELL,  LAW, CAULFIELD CO.
Holds Its First Annual  Meeting -A
Successful Year's Business Despite (ireat Disadvantages.
The Hrst annual meeting of Ihe Hus.

town last week. The conipany was
organized last year to acquire and car
ry on the businesses of lhe Hussell
Hardware company, hardware mer
chants j \V. M. Law & Co., dry gnod'

these several businesses appears t<
have ln*en a success, notwithstanding
that trade generally has lieen dui|
throughout, the districl during tbe per
iod the company has been operating
III presenting his first annual reporl
and statement the manager of the
company says : '-The pa-t year has
heen a very unsatisfactory one iu
many respects, owing to Ihe general
conditions of the dislrict. We have
been particularly handicapped iu having been obliged to do business in. two
different stores at the same time, both
carrying a heavy insurance rate ($8.41)
p-r bundled) and a high rental. These
heavy charges, toirether witli numerous small ones incidental to running
two stores made uur expense account
a very targe one. We have, however
erected a new building, tidthittedl*
one of the finest, l.est arranged aiu
most complete for a husiness of on
kin I in the province ; one in whicli wi
can no v do au immense amount ol
husiness at a mnch less expense that
heretofore. Besides the many olhei
advantages of doing business io sucl
an establishment, I estimate that w
can save in expenses, such as jiistir
ance, rent, light, etc., nn a business o
a similar amount lo that done lasl
year, fiom $2 4110 to $2,700.
"I have nol been as aggressive aftei
business as I would like lo have been
believing ihe conditions of lhe disirir
did not wart ant it. I have rather pre
ferred, during tliis our lirst year, t
building up a slrongronservaiive repu
tation and ciedil, which we bine sue
caeded in doing, both locally an
abroad, and we are subsequently nnw
in a most excellent position to do busi
ness,"
The Hnanrial statement submit te.
tn the shareholders showed earning
of 10 25 per cent on the company',
capital stock, but it was decided l>
apply these profits towards paymeiii
of the cost of the new building rathe
than to distribute them among tin
stockholders. The manager was en
thusiasiic iu his expressions of cnnli
denceas to the ultima e favorable re
suits of the enterprise the companj
has entered into. The auditor's repnr

HAS OOOD SHOWING.
Another Copper Dountaln Property
That Promises to Prove Valuable.
A big strike is reported on lhe Uiai.il
Lode claim, owned by Peter Granl and
Aaron Anderson, The claim is situated
on Cupper mountain, ljSOiTsoiilheaslof
the Buckhorn group. The surface
showing extends along the face of the.
mountain about 7-1 feet, The charac
ler of Oie ore is decomposed quartz,
The owners sunk a shaft to a depth
of 10 feet, where they encountered
good ore. An npen cut was then extended across the ledge, level witli lhe
bolloui of the shaft, whicli allowed tbe
ledge lo Iai 21 feet wide, between walls.
The ledge also shows two ami a half
feel, of peacock copper ore adjacent to
the foot walls. This payshoot slums
85 per cenl copper. Twelve inches of
the ledge in contact wiih foot, wall has
copper glance whicli assays 70 per cent
in copper.
Assays give values of 15 per cent in
copper, $4.50 in gold anil $2.10 in silver
to the ton, The owners have refused
a bond on the property for $50,000,
The Bainhow property, on Copper
mount niu, has a twn foot shaft, and is
now being worked in good ore which
averages about $20 to tlie ton,
The Monterey company, which owns
the Buckhoin group, has encountered
the ledge in the tunnel al (105 feel. The
tunnel has lieen driven 27J feet since
encountering the ledge and with the
exception of seven feet near the center
is in solid ore. Just beyond lhe horse
a Iwo foot, paystreak was uncovered
that gives values of $i>0 per Ion. The
average assay of the entire ledge is
$8.05 per tun,
AN IDEAL SPOT
For Farming and Fruit Growing
is the Kettle River Valley.
Percy F. (iodenrath, Who Is Now itl
Montreal, Issues a Pamphlet Setting  Forth   the   Exceptional
Advantages of This Highly   Favored   District.
Percy F. (iodenrath, who lately
went Kast, for tbe purpose nf obtaining
purchasers for small holdings on the
('overt estate, in the Kellie river valley, which bus been subdivided into
tracts of about ten acres each, has is*
suedasmal1 folder descriptive of lhat
pioperty. Although lhe profits to be
derived from diversified farming in tlie
Kettle river valley may seem incredibly large to those unacquainted wilh
lie enoiiuous production of all kinds
of agricultural products lhat. are obtained in this highly favored district
and Ibe ready market nl such good
prices as prevail, Mr. Godenratli bas
not given by any means an exaggerated idea of what can be made out of a
few acres of good land « here tlie fai-
mer and fruit grower are surrounded
by such favorable opportunities as
they are in the Kelt le Hiver Valley.
As ani stance nf what can be made
from a few acres of land in this district,
if proper v cultivated and managed,
it is nnly necessary t" tike th ■ following figures contained in the pamphlet.
They show what Mr. Covert made lust,
year mil nf the season's crop. They
are not Imaginary figures compiled fur
lhe express purpose of selling bis prop*
erty, but are actual quantities produced and prices received foi tlie different cninmodities, as all those at all
familiar wilh M . Covert's successful
ranching, can vouch. The figures are
not in the least astonishing to those
familiar witli the district, bin anyone
not acquainted with the agricultural
capabilities nf this wonderland of lhe
west, rjry marvel ai such large returns fro n a single season's crop. Mr,
(iodenrath says: "Now let us see what
Mr. Covert has done on his laud—
the original homestead. Take fur example bis nine-acre prune orchard.
The trees are now seven years old
Last season he took off his third
crop. It amounted to 33 tons. Of this
Ihree tons of green fruil Were sold at
from three to five cents por pound.
The balance, 30 tons, was evaporated,
producing 10 tons of dried fruit. This
he marketed at eight cents per pound,
or $1,1100 for 10 tons, A profit of
roughly $140 to the acre.
Fr an I, ss than (JOarrea planted with
potatoes be pbtained 2l'5 tons, oi nearly four and one half tons per acre.
Figuring the average price of pota-
toes at $20 per ton, Ihis means a gross
valuelof $5,800 for the crop, Mr. Covert will realize more as he is holding
nearly halt' his crop for sale Ihis spring
and expects lo obtain $30 to $10 per
(on.
Fifteen acres of land sown with Timothy produced 25 ions, Timothy
finds a lenily uuuki t nt $25 per ton.
This means a gross value nf $025. His
bust year's grain-hay crop was 00 tons.
Grain-hay sells for $20 per ton, which
i.s equal lo $1,200 for the crop. His
wheal yielded from 40 to 50 bushels to
lhe acre. Both cereals sell locally at.
one and three quarters nf a cent per
pound.
His profits from his 111 acre mixed
fruil orchard and hei lies last season
()IXII) amounted to $1,4(15."
What Ml', Covert has done, can,
witli tlie same amount nf intelligence
and energy, be accomplished by anyone who is fortunate enough lo obtain
a piece of the highly fertile land in
the Keltic Hiver Valley. Air. Covert,
started in years ago, and, of course, it
takes time lo get an nrcbard in Iho
same paying condition as his now is,
bin il can bc done, and at a comparatively small expense,
Mr. (iodenrath's pamphlet furnishes
much valuable information and any
otic contenipl.il Ing coining wesl would
do well to send for a copy, which Mr.
(Iodenrath will gladly send froe upon

This is the way it has been done in
Connecticut,: An itinerant vendor's
law was passed HOiiieJiine ngo, requiring transient traders to deposit $500
with the state treasurer and to pay a
slate fee of1 $100 and a local one of $15,
Asa result Ihe slate is almost' completely rid of the peddler nuWance.
Some men love notoriety regardless
nf  the  circumstances  under   which
their names are brought before the:
public.   This seems especially  truo of
au individual named Morrison, who in
an interview with a representative of
the Victoria- Co'lhnist,   characterizes
lhe reports made as to the richness of
the Horsefly placer diggings as ahso
lutely untrue.   Surely no mail   is so
totally lacking in common sense as to
make the assertions that Mr. Morrison
has, I) lieclng them to be true,  or ex-
peeling the. public to attach any wcighl
to his sayings,  especially upon the
frail arguments produc -d lo substantiate his assertions, and it must be that
Mr. Morrison, unalile to have his name
paraded before the public in any other
way, is willing to become a subject of
ridicule rather than  lose Ihe opportunity of gaining publicity.   He slates
that he has lost $300 in  proving that
the   report nf Messrs.   ('ruddock  k
Humus, which appeared in the Government's repnrl, is untrue, and he wishes
the public to know it.   It is extremely
unfortunate that Mr, Morrison squandered his .money in a hopeless endeavor to knock the Horsefly country, hut
euch is the fate  of the knocker; his
way, like the  transgressor's,  ia haid.
Tint, the attempts of such  men fortunately have no detrimental effect,  owing io Ihe lack of subst intial evidence
produced to carry out their evil de
signs.   For   instance,  Mr,   Morrison
g lys that  he  did   not   reach Eureka
creek until December and early in February he is back in Vancouver looking
fir an easy game  newspaper reporter
to listen to his commendations of the
entire  Horsefly   country.     That he
cuild possibly have looked  over thai
country In the. incredibly short lime in
which he claims  to  have,  is absurd,
and should have  been   considered  as
such by the Colonial's reporter, who
i> probably as much loblame for crud
iting such a report as Mr. Morrison  ii
for    making  it... Mr.  Morrison   also
slates that  he is  going  bach  to  ihe
Horsefly Country in the spring for the
purpose of (rapping, but as the season
for that indiislry is over this month, jt
shows hiTW amusingly ridiculous are
the arguments advanced by Mr.   Morrison in his vain attempt  to condemn
a country that is pronounced  hy men
of long years of experience  iu  placer
miningtojioextremely rich,   llrilisli
Columbia, possesses many men  of the
typenf Mr. Morrison, who lake delight
in speaking ill of Ihe province, and ou
ly too often  does  the  press lend its.
assistance, so long as lhc Held  for op
eralion is a litlle way from home.
We are in receipt of a pamphlet descriptive af^tlie province, principally
iu relation to its agricultural capabilities and possibilities. It is issued by
the Department of Agriculture, and
furnishes much valuable information
to those already engaged iu ranching
in the province, as well as to those
desirous of information relative to British Columbia. It deals separately
with' the various branches of agriculture, shows clearly that although British Columbia was once designated by
a leading statesman in the East as "it
sea of mountains," yet a greater fallacy never existed than lhat the agricul
tu rai area of land is sn circumscribed
and pour as it has lieen depicted, and
what arable bind Ihere is in thc province is exceptionally fertile, The report also points ont tlie erroneous 'doa
that exisls regarding Ilie climate and
says:
"Ity; very name of Canada is asso
dated liy very many people with tlie
idea of "Our Lady of Ihu Snows" ; and
since British Columbia is part and par.
eel of the great Dominion, it has conn*
to be regarded as identical in climate
to ihe provinces in the Enst, Amongst
our friends to the smith of us also, divided jjnly. by tin imaginary line, the
idea is quite general that, climatically,
British Columbia is unfit fur ngricul-
urnI pursuits.
A great deal of misconception regarding the province is undoubtedly
due to Ill-Informed writers, who, afler
viewing lhe country through the win
dow uf a Pullman car, nr from the
deck of a steamer, forthwith under-
Inks In write a book, all about the
couniiy.
On account of its topography and
extent, ranging as ll dues from tlie
40 li to the 00i.li degrees of latitude,
und iiit'-rsectcd as il is by Immense
mountain ranges, with the warm
Japan current setting over lo its
shores, it may easily hu understood
that the climate of Briiish Columbia is
varied in its character, and ils
products, as a natural sequence,
are also very varied, embracing those of the semi lioplcal as well
as of Uie temperate'/.ones. The apple,
pal- excellence, is I he fruil of file country, which with the pear, piuiu, panic,
cherry, and all small fruits, attains
great perfection iu most of the setlled
portions of lhe province, Peaches,
apricots, nectarines, grapes and such
fruits, are naturally not so wide in
their (list riluition, but are successfully,,
cultivated in many parts of the southern portion of tlie province, Melons,
tnmalues, Chili peppers, egg plant,
ami all vegetables nf this character,
are also grown to perfection in many
parlsi In the matter of nuts—almonds,
walnuts, filberts, hnziluuls, cobnuts,
chestnuts, &c.-thesc produce well
wherever grown, It is impossible at
the present writing to give any stalls
tical infniniatioii, even of an appyoxi
mute charscter, of the number and
kinds of orchards in the province, nor
the amount of fruit produced. This
.may he said, however, that whereas a
few years ago most of the fruit consumed was imported from the neighboring Slates and California, now most
of the fruits coming to the province
from these sources are early fruits,
which come before the homo production is ready for Ihe market."
There is an excellent description of
the Boundary country given in the
report, which refers lo the famous
Kottle river valley as an ideal location
for ranching, owing to the unusual
richness of (be soil and the linest climatic •■onditioiis in Ihe country. It
says in part:
The land which'can offer such scenes
to the traveller is not likely to remain
long untenanted. Nor is it; most of
the land, at all events the best of it,
has been long in occupation. As lo
the products of the soil in this favored
sl rip along British Columbia's southern
froiitiei, the available area is by no
means worked yet lo its full capacity ;
so far it can raise enough to supply lhe
numerous mining camps in the mountains north and west. It is a question,
though, whether iu lhe event of those
mines being worked to their full ex
tent, and large towns and even cilies
springing up around the valley, if lhc
farmers and fruit and vegetable growers of that locality could produce
enough to supply lhe demand.
This is a portion of the great peach
belt and the. peaches of the Keitle are
celebrated,   For it is fervently warm
in I hat long vale iu  the  dug days,
though  every  day  the  cooling airs
from the surrounding mountains come
to soothe panting humanity, and bird
and beast.   The apples, plums, pears,
melons, pumpkins and the small fruits
all   attain    astuuishing    proportions,
while reiaining the luscioiisness of the
liest of their kind.   The various fruits
and vegetables are piesenl.ed to the
consumer at an earlier date, probably,
than anywhere else jn the province.
The wheat, oats and barley raised in
the Keltic valley are too "well known
lo require more than reference.
• "Whilst, the Kettle valley is lbe main
lowland along the boundary, all the
minor valleys pnssess the same fertile
soil, the same prodigality pf returns
for I he labor expended and offer the
same advantages to lhe settler., On
the line of the Coliiniliia nnd Western
going 11(1 to Gieenwond there is plenty
of evidence that ihe country is not
given up altogether to the miner and
timber men ; prosperous looking farms
dot lbe vulby everywhere, and "the
cattle on a thousand hills" denote ii
flourishing state of tbe pastoral calling.
"II. i.s needless here to dilate upon the
exquisite panorama that unfolds itself
in mn jes tic pictures as the train follows
the course of the valley; suffice ty to
say that artist and photographer have
there a happy hunting ground which
Offers inexhaustible riches uf form and
color—grotesque pinnacles, castellated
crags, fantastic ornamentation as nature in her latest throe left it forever;
blue distance, gaudy stripings and
splashes of brilliant color—in short, a
place once seen never to be forgotten.
Since the railway was pushed Ihrough
that wild but rich and fertile valley
there has been a wonderful increase in

RAILWAY   NEWS
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 rait
ways 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
rich. It is not a speculation, itis an
investment.

The following is u short description
of the new C. P H- bridge across the
Columbia river at Holisoli:
Work on the bridge wns Hist started
ill Novemlier, HXIU, lhe original allowance for the structure being |l5U.(imi.
This, however, has piovetl inadequate
and the total cost, will probably amount
to $175,00(1. J. Gnmi waslhe contract
or for thn piers, which nve eight in
number. The highest.of these piers is
§0 feet from wliere it rests on pile
foundations to lhe bridge. Al low
water this pier rests in SB feet of water
ahd lhe difference between the low
water mark and the extra high watei
slage is 35 feet, giving a depth there of
70 feet at high water.
These piers arc IU feet wide and iM
feet long, with cutwater front, and are
built of granite which was quarried
close W Nelson.
The bridge itself was built by the
Dominion Hridge company and w.-is
Olio erected by iliiiiderlhcFiiperiuten
deuce of .1. Flndliiy. It consists of
[ hreefio foot deck spans, each of two
hundred feet, and a swinging span of
•120 feet, which when open leaves n
space of sixl y feet between piers. Tlie
.total lenglh of Ihe bridge proper is 7W>

the heaviest portion being W> feel .deep.
A steum shovel bus beeu emp'oyed n
