Tbe Opposition Find Muoh Fault
With the Appropriations fo? tile
Kaslo Biding.
Espeoially is Hon. Mr. Greenr oritl-
olzed for rooommending improvements at Trout Lake.'
Tbe proceedings o( the B. C. legislative assembly during the past fortnight
have been quite interesting. The latest Innovation was where tbe member
for Fernie warmly advocated that some
provision be made whereby the young
people of tbo province would not be
obliged to leave it ln order to seoure
higher education. He reminded the
house that when its population did not
exceed 75,000, Manitoba established a
university which bad now ti .turned
large proportions. He also pointed' to
other eastern provinces, like Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, which had
three or four universities.
The premier was somewhat non-com
mlttal itt regard to tbe matter, and ra.
ther inclined to privately endowed seats
of learning, while recognizing the necessity of lueh an institution.
The opposition on tbe whole were disposed to regard the motion aa premature, alleging that our population bad
not assumed proportions where we
could hope to maintain anything better
than what Mclnoos designated as a
" tin-pot" university. < It waa pointed
ont alao by Dr. King that in someflt the
provinces alluded to by the author of
the motion, the universities, were scarcely worthy of the name, and young men
left the province just as they do In British Columbia, to attend Toronto or Mo-
A plea was put in by Messrs, Mclnnes and Brown to make our high
school curriculum more practical, while
tbe olaims of Victoria aud Vancouver
to be made the seats of all of suoh Institutions of learning were advanced by
Messrs. Cameron and McGowan respectively.
The motion carried.
The bill validating tbe acts of mayor
Barnard, of Victoria, who was dlsqual-
fled, was put through Its final stages
and assented to by bis honor.
Proceeding to consideration of report
of committee on supply, the challenging
of different items was renewed, aa before alluded to. A good deal of attention was bestowed on the chief commissioner, who, lt develops, has secured
for bis distriot not $8,000, as set out In
the estimates, but nearer double that
amount. An appropriation of 12,000
for dyking the Lardeau river bank at
Trout Lrko was particularly criticized,
it being alleged tbat it was forthe purpose of protecting private property.
The leader of the opposition reminded tbe chief commissioner of the great
need of bigger appropriations, fer instance, ln ymir district, where $2,000
could be spent to much greater advantage ou Sophlt mountain road than In
protecting private property at Trout
Lake. Money was alio badly needed
for a trail from the Velvet mine to
Rossland, to hold a great trade which
now went to Northport. He charged
the chief .commissioner with giving his
constituency two or three times more
than any other Kootenay constituency.
John Houston supported tbis view,
and said Mr. Green showed no consideration for Kootenay, but only for his own
[riding. As for Ymir, he attributed the
small appropriation to tbe government's
estimate of the member from that District, who could make a speech only In
moving an address in reply to the
speech from the throne.
Tift Days Of Yore.
In the good old booanxa days, about
which we bear so muoh, there were few
mines worked to a depth of over 500
feet, the machinery equipment was of
tbe crudest, and the smelting (and reduction methods primitive. In Isolated
cases money wu mado���inthe majority

operator. In those times lt required
t\i months to obtain a settlement for

could be treated at a profit.

those days are now being treated at a

Poplar Mining New!
This week the tunnel on the Luoky
Jack passed the 366 foot 'mark, and on
Wednesday was ln 312 feet, giving a
depth of about '176 feet. For ihe last
thirty feetjtho tunnel has been lu ore
of good quality, carrying gulena and
free gold. In another hundred feet a
depth of 200 feet will have baen reached
on the lead, and then stoping will be
commenced and the mine become a
regular shipper.
On the Bnfialo group, No. 1 tunnel Is
fairly started, being in about twenty
feet. It is expected tha ledge will be
encountered at between fifty and sixty
feet, after which No. 2 tunnel will be
commenced, and ruiJ about one liuunred
feet to tap the lead at a vertical depth
of 100 feet.
The shaft on the placer claim south
of Poplar is down 55 feet. In the last
seven feot first a cement and then a
hard-pan waB encountered. It Is believed that bed-rock will be reached
within tbe next ten feet.

A gentleman who has done probably

any other individual in the Lardeau
oountry during the past fouryears without striking what would enrich himself
to any extent, is Mr. A. H. Holdich, of

Mr. Holdich held a similar position
with the Great Western Mines, Limited, until about a year since, being also
secretary-treasurer of tbe company.

Baltimore, a city of nearly 700,000
Inhabitants, being the sixth in size in
tbe United States, had a terrible experience with fire on Monday last, paralleling the historical Chicago lire of
1871. The people of Baltimore, uu-
Uke the experience of ber sister city,
may feel gratified that tbere was no
loss of life as far as is known, and very
few casualties. The fire made a clean
sweep, and every means known was
brought Into requisition to stop tho
spreading of tbe terrible conflagration.
After raping for 24 hours, and sweeping
an area of 140 acres clean of 2,500 buildings in the heart of the great city, the
flames were finally ohecked and the fire
extinguished. There will be over a
hundred thousand people homeless, and
much destitution will result.
Every street that led to the fire area
was crowded with spectators. Down
the narrow streets tbe black smoke
hung densely, split now and then by a
red glare of flame. The crash of falling
buildings was lost In tbe roar of exploding dynamite, as it was used to demolish structures as yet untouched by
fire. The City was under the strictest
sf military control. All around the
burned area was stretched a cordon of
soldiers, who held up all comers at the
point of the bayonet. Police brought
from tho neighboring cities patrolled
the district, ana at the limits of tbe fit c
zone paced armed sentries.
In tbe early hours of tbe morning lhe
army of lire fighters coped acainst overwhelming odds, and wben daybreak
came the tluaies were raging along the
wharvos nnd "ocusset! about the great
powerhouse of the United Railways
company, which furnishes the power
for all the street railways of tho city.
Then the tiaraos ate their way with undiminished force southward, following
the lines of Jones falls, and were dually checked near the water's edge at
West Falls avenue, la tho southeast
section of tho oity.

red in an appreciative manner tn tht;
short time that it took tho Nelson Newt
and other south papers to reach Ferguson, being about ten hours from Nel-
Bon. Wo are sorry wo mentioned the
matter, for there has been a change,
though perhaps not becauso of our
comment. Instead of tiie "News" from
Nelson taking ten hours, it now usually
takes from two to three days to reach
us. It is too bad that the despatch in
delivery has not been continued, for
mail Is not so much appreciated when
Its coming has been tardy. The reason
is becauso the papers and many letters
are now sent around via Revelstoke instead of the direct route. This may be
caused by tho announcement earlyin
the fall by the C. P. R. that the Lardo
route would not be maintained in winter, and publishers do not care to risk
having their papers held up on the way. Lardeau Bagle

The water way on Trout Lake is
still open, and the C. P. R. boat is
experiencing no difficulty in making
her regular trips. A very cold snap
was experienced the early part o(
the week, this being in all probability the usual difficult part of the
winter to pass successfully that is
experienced each year, for not only
was there extreme cold, six below
zero, but there was the dreaded
heavy snowfall, However, the passage was not obstructed, and it is
almost safe to say it will not 'be

would be annoying and expensive
to people of Trout Lake and Ferguson particularly.
It would cut off the south mail
service, the Dominion express service, the passenger service, and it
would render the transporting of
freight into these towns very awkward. A little care and perseverance by the C. P. R. for another
four weeks would avoid all the distress which we fear.
The best of harmony marked the
proceedings of the convention of
Liberal-Conservatives at Victoria
last week. The split in the party
would seem to have been healed,
and the members are now all working in unison. John Houston was
not re-elected president, but did not
sever, his connection with the old
party as many expected him tt. do,
but he announced his allegiance t'd
the party, and an intention of giving
his best efforts to the cause of conservatism.
Colonel Prior had been some .vhat

and accepted office, as well as announcing that lie was in full accord
with the party and its leaders.

John Morley will move an amendment to the address in reply to the
speech from the throne, on the fiscal question, in the Britishjhouse of
Commons. A lively debate is expected, and the outcome is most
uncertain-, on account of the strong
feeling that prevails and the fact
that there are no less than seven factions in the house. The liberals believe that their innings is at hand,
and they are apt to make the best
of the situation,believing the government's seeming want of unity will
make it easily embarrassed.

Tailings are tbat portion ot the ore

profitable industry has of* recent years
been the purchasing of vast piles of
tailings that have been accumulating
at producing gold mines for years, and
treating these by the cyanide process.
Free mllliug gold oros are such ores
that carry their gold particles in a state
wherein when liberated from the in-
closing rook, tho gold readily alloys
with mercury or quicksilver. Refraet-
ory oros are those ores whose gold contents refuse to allby with mercury In
the mortar or on the plates Ores contain.ng sulphides, tellurldes, arsenides,
bismuth, etc,, ure refractory ores.
In deciding upon the character of a
mill to treat the ores of a particular
mine, by tests made on a fewpounds of
tbe pay rook, money Is frequently
thrown away. Not less than a carload
of ore sliould be tested. It should be
sent to men wbo make tests of that
character a business, and' who have no
interest in the matter further than to
obtain the highest percentage of extraction.���Ex.

and they say the camp is played out.
It was this way with Virginia City,

mines are opened and the camps become I
