Representatives of the People have
Got Nicely Down to Business.
Getting Interesting.
Members throw Bouquets in debate
And Good Natured Oritioism
Is Indulged In.
The members of tho house have now
got well Into harness, and the session
ia going on smoothly as yet. On Monday the 30th Nov., according to a
"Province" correspondent, A. Macdonald, leader of the opposition, mado
his debut in a speech which created a
very favorable impression. His speech
had evidently beon carefully prepared,
and, whilo sharply critical, skilfully
avoided saying anything too delinite in
character in the way of suggestions
which would give his opponents a cue
to the courso he intended to pursue.
Tlie premier made several attempts to
draw htm out, but without success.
Premier McBride spoke rather better
than usual. The most important declaration, of course, had referenco to
tho flscal situation, in conneetion with
which he declared that monoy must be
provided by the 15th of this month to
���meet the provincial obligations.
The debate was concluded by Mr.
John Oliver, who spoke with vigor. In
fact, tho iuitial speeches of the debate
augur well for the character of the legislative oratory
Tbe leader of the opposition prefaced
his remarks by a kindly compliment to
tlio mover and seconder of the address
in reply to the speech from the throne,
nnd added that be only hoped his own
effort would be as little open to criticism. Regarding the seconder of the
address (Mr. Ross of Foruie), he could
suy that however, severe might be the
observations passed on matters in connection with his seat in the house, toward Mr. Boss himself the opposition
had nothing but feelings of the most
kindly nature.
Following this came a reference to
tbo drawing of party lines, and the expression of a hope that their introduction would cause tbat stability which
marked tho polities of the mother of
nations,
The speech itself, Mr. Macdonald
added, was remarkable; chiefly for two
things, borrowing and taxation, The
time being inopportune for raising a
loan, tho leader of the opposition
thought lt would bo bettor to borrow
only what was needed for Immediate
requirements, and In the courso tff perhaps a year conditions might be improved, aud money could be raised at a
reasonable rate of interest..
Coining to tho two por cent, tax, ho
reminded tho houso that tho conservative speakers had emphasized the injustice of lt during the lato campaign,
aud their platform contained a reference to tho infamous manner in which
it worked out. Yet here on tho lirst
occasion when these promises could be
redeemed they found tho government
clinging to tho old abuse. He followed
with a vigorous defence ot the mining
industry, aud a statement that in his
opinion not ton per cent, of thc mines
floated in British Columbia wero deliberate wildcats. The injustice of the
lax, he claimed, lay in the fact that it
foil on tho mines which wero working
and exempted those that were Idle.
He referred in rather playful terms
to the appeal in the speech to the loyally of the members, and said lt was fair
to assume that thoy were all loyal until
It wns proved othorwlse.
He frankly confessed his distrust of
the present administration, bociutco of
its weakness, because it was at the
mercy of ono or two members.
Alluding to the Fornie matter, he
held it wrong on tho part ot tho Government to appoint the partner of the
conservative candidate returning ofllcer. He criticised the action both of
the returning officer and tho government. Ho claimed that the spirit ol
the act was so plain that tho government obviously did wrong in-refusing
to order the roturn of the ballot-boxes.
He concluded by appealing in turn to
the patriotism of the members on tlie
government side of the house to see
that justice was done to Fernie.
Tho leader of the government on
rising, was not to be outdone in courtesy
by his principal opponent, for he devoted a minute or two to a neatly
turned compliment to Mr. Macdonald,
and his fitness for the post ho now
occupies.
Regarding the speech of the leader of
the opposition, he presumed it was tho
most deadly that could be leveled
against his ministry. It opened with
an attack on the two per cent, tax���a
tax which originated during his iucum"
beucy of oflice iu the Dunsmuir government. He held that mining men had
offered no alternative, although they
criticised tbe tax.
Coming to tbe financial state of the
provinco, the premier said he was not
aware during the election how critical
it was. He realized it later. So insistent were the demands upon them that
it was out of the question at tho present time to forego the two per cent. tax.
Were It possible, he would gludly;re-
Hove the load upon the miner and prospector, but dire necessity forbade it.
So critical was the state of a flairs,
that he would seriously question the
patriotism of the members of the opposition if they did not assist in putting
through the Loan Bill.
One of the causes of the present deficit was the New Westminster Bridgo,
which would cost nearly a million dollars, but which would open up communication from a large section witb tho
commercial metropolis of the province,
and which in a few years would pay interest and sinking fund.
He disagreed with the claim that the
financial condition of tho province was
due to weak governments, adding that
the Dunsmuir government had sixteen
of a majority less. His government
had exhausted every expedient before
resorting to the presont one of raising
the loan. The results of falling to pass
the loan would be disastrous, as on Dec.
15, obligations would have to be met in
London. To [ail to provide the means
to do so would entail tho gravest
consequences.
The premier, continuing, complained
that the delegation,to Ottawa had had
a deaf ear turned to its demands, and
said if more consideration were not
shown to their requests, British Columbia representatives In the federal house
would have to take drastic steps to obtain justice for the province.
The claim that tbe speech contained
little, tho premier combated by saying
tbat previous governments had made
much of paper railways. His government proposed, whon ready to undertake railway construction, to do so in a
bona-lide manner. He recognized the
urgent need of a railway from tho coast
to Kootenay, and also through the
northern part of the country.
In conclusion, the premier had a fling
at tho Dominion government nnd its
Grand Trunk Pacific scheme, claiming
that it was the intention of tho Dominion government to build from the east
westerly, thus deflecting the trado the
lino would bring to the east. They had
also failed to provide against the employment of Asiatic labor. Tho protest
of tbe loeal government on this point
had been ignored, excepting for the
statement of the British Colunbia
members.

DANCING SEASON.
The Ladies' Quadrille Club of Ferguson Give a Very Successful
Masquerade Ball.
Many and Varied Costumes.   Dan-
Continued Till Early Next
Morning,
The Kaslo Smelter.
The Ferguson quadrillo club was reorganized this winter with a radical
departure from tho usual custom of lining all tho ollices by men. This year
tho ladies have lull control, and the
name of the organization is the Ladies'
Quadrille Club of Ferguson. Tho all-
airs of tlio elub are managed by a committee of three, namely: Mrs. A. C.
Cntumitis, Miss C. Thompson, & Miss
A. Thomas, whilo Miss Edwards nets
as chairwoman of committee and general supervisor.
Tho masquerade of last Thursday
night was tho opening dance of tlio sea-
boii under the now management, and
one and all will agree that tho affair
was a magnificent success from evory
point of view. The committee had
gone to considerable exponso in providing tables for lunch and other requirements, which were fully paid for
out of the proceeds of tho dance, as well
as music, hall and othor incidentals.
Dances will bo held during the season
at regular Intervals, and wo are satis-
lied that the ladies will sustain their
reputation, gained last Thursday night,
of providing an ample suppl/ of delicacies for lunch, first class music, and
an all-round good dance.

Hot au* talkers say that thoro is not
enough oro in tho Kootenay country to
supply a smeltor of this capacity, and
that tho smelter will not be ablo to
treat ore over 15 per cent. load.   It
would sound like hot air if this company was to build asmelter costing half a
million,  as this ono will, and not he
| able to treat ore'over 15 pet* cent. lead.
i Tho company's exports havo looked the
'.country over and stato that thero is

;a smelter three times as large.   It is
[well understood by the people of this
country that a smelter of this kind has
\ been tho ono great thing noeded to ad*

I    A refinery will also bo built in con-
' nection with the smelter.
Fernie Ballot Box Again.
Premier McBride gave a most complete reply to the strictures parsed by
tho leader of the opposition on tho
Fernie ballot box caso during the debate on the speech from the throne, an
abridged account of which will be found
lu the precodingcoluuins. In theoeurse
of his defence the premier said :
Regarding the Fernie ballot-box
caso, tho leader of the opposition well
knew how explicit the statute was, and
any course taken which was not in accord with that statuto would have resulted in an appeal to tho courts.
Would tho leader of tho opposition ask
J the government to break the laws of
the province?   There hud been no ap-
jpcai in this mattor. But there had
been a higher appoal taken directly to
tho people themselves in tho case of the
Vancouver by-election, which was decided in favor of the Government in spite
ot the eloquence of tho leader of the
opposition. That gentleman clamored
for the recognition of tho voico of the
Fernie ballot-box, but not of tho Vancouver one.
The premier promised, however, that
during tho session a bill would be introduced amending the statute to prevent
u recurrence of the Pernio trouble.

Loan Bill Passed.
Victoria, B. C��� Doc. 4.���Tho loan
bill pussed tho committeo of the legis-
luturo today. An exception was takon
by tho opposition on tho second reading
of the railway tax bill to tho provision
prohlbitingmunicipulitios incorporated
sinco 1805 assessing railways. They
said it would glvo places incorporated
before that dato advantages over Rossland and othor recently incorporated
towns.
Tho attorney general explained that
this was tho condition of incorporating
towns sinco 1804. The amendment was
lost by IS to 12, and tho bill passed the
committee. Nino railways carrying
ore or coal and logging railways are
exempted from tho railway tax.
On tho second rending of tho coal
mines act, the leader of tho opposition
said something should bo dono to pro-
vent speculators,, such as operated in
south-oast Kootenay, from getting coal
and oil lamds for foreigners, instancing
Spokane syndicates. Ho said only bona
lido prospectors should bo allowed licenses. The second reading carried,
as did tho second reading of tho assessment act. By this last, tho finance
minister said ho hoped tu raise $200,000
more revenue. Tho promised consideration ot the modification of tho 2 per
cent, minoral tax revenue tax amendment passed through its second reading.

English Capitalists Probably Start
Construction in
Spring.
Organizer    of   company    makes
Statement.   Subscription for
Road Repairs.
In discussing the probabilities of the
proposed now railway from Vernon to
Midway, the Daily Province ot last
Friday says:
Unless some unforeseen hitch should
occur in the negotiations with tlie English capitalists who arc backing tho
enterprise, construction work will be
started next spring on the lino of tho
Vernon and Midway Railway, an interior line projected for some time.
This was the announcement made to
The Province yesterday by Mr. Robert
Wood, the founder of the town ot
Greenwood. Mr. Wood came down
from the interior, and went on to Victoria to interview thc provincial gov.
ernment regarding road and bridge
matters.
in an interview with a Province representative on tho steamer Charmer
before sailing, Mr. Wood, who is the
organizer and a provisional director of
tho projected line, said that everything
looks promising for the coinmencement
of actual work on the lino next spring.
Tho Vernon and Midway railway is between 135 and 145 mile, in length, and
passes through a district rich in minerals and timber, witli small valleys of
fertilo agricultural land. The line has
already been surveyed twice. Two
routes aro available, ono slightly longer than tho othor but-.with only none
per cent grade, while the other route,
although twelve miles shorter, would
havo a 2) per cunt, grade.
The details and route of this projected lino wero discussed at length many
yoars ugo, when the Provincial and
Dominion governments both passed
substantial grants to aid in tho construction of the line. Mr. Wood exhibited a copy of the aet passed by the legislature lu 13111, granting $2,000 per
mile to this line. The following year,
Mr. Wood continued, representatives
of tho Vernon aud Midway Railway
company visited Ottawa and succeeded
In securing a grant of $0,400 por milo
from tho Dominion government. From
the estimates furnished by tho surveyors and engineers who had boon over
tho proposed route, Mr. Wood stated
lhat the average cost would be $24,000
per mile.
Mr. II. Ii. Smith, general business
manager of tho company, Is now iu London, Eng., and from word which Mr.
Wood had received (rent him a few days
ago, he thought sufficient capital would
be available in the spring to coiumencu
construction.
Thc Immediate object of Mr. Wood's
visit to Victoria is to interview tho gov.
eminent regarding certain improve'
ments to portions ol tho Three Forks
wagon road lately constructed. Tho
greater part ot tho road has boon finished, but there arc gups uncompleted,
and soveral bridges require repairing,
whilo a number of small bridges aro
needed over certain creeks. Tho residents ot that section realize that tho
government has no great cash surplus
to spend on road Improvements. A subscription list wns accordingly started
somo time ago and merchants ol Greenwood and vicinity subscribed nearly
$300 tor these improvements. This subscription list Mr. Wood is taking down
to the capital, as well as a largely
signed petition from tho residents of
the locality, praying that the government grant an appropriation, which to-
.'���ether with that already subscribed,
will bo sullicicnt to effect the needed
repairs. Lardeau Eagle

SUCCESS IN MINING.
Experience teaches lhat where
men with sufficient capital nt their
command enter into mining as a legitimate business with a determination to succeed and where honest
ine;in.s were employed, seldom have
they failed lo make plenty of money.
There are several reasons why men
fail in the mining business. In the
first place they engage in it on the
s.-.me principle ar* most men take a
turn at some lime in their lives at
the gambling tables. That is, they
will hazard, so much, generally too
little to bring success even at gambling, and while we do not approve
of the practice, if they lose, very
well thc loss is not ruinous, and if
they are " kicky" they are so much
to the good. They plunge ; they do
not s'.ttdv lhe business in detail as
they would in an ordinary mercantile business, but they risk a little,
hoping to turn the desired "black
jack." They lose, and they turn
from the game with loathing and
talk against it.
Mining is nn honest, manly and
highly profitable business, and there
is loss hardship or unfairness to
one's fellow man in an honest person's accumulation of wealth in this
business than any other that can be
named ; for what one makes from
legitimate mining operations comes
not from one's fellows, but is dug
from Nature's granaries of unused
undistributed Wealth.
EDITORIAL NOTES.
GOVERNMENT MEAN BUSINESS.
A cursory examination of the debate on lhe speech from the throne,
a report ol which is given on our
front page, will show that the present government mean business. I.i
a temperate and well considered address, Premier M'cBride effectually
disposed of the criticisms of Mr,
Macdonald, the lender til llic opposition, ahly prepared and delivered
though thos: criticisms were. Il
will be noted lhat the premier once
again drew attention to the grave
financial condition in whicli Ihe province finds itself, and we arc heitrtily
in accord wilh him in seriously
questioning tlie patriotism of those
who put any obstacle in lhe way ot
remedying this defect. Party government is indispensubie lo an hon.
est and efficient administration of a
country's affairs, but in a case of
Ihis nature, where the object to be
attained is so obviously fur the good
of lhe province, whole hearted patriotism and co-operalion nre absolutely essential. In this connection,
we are glad lo nolice that lhe provincial parliament has passed the
loan bill.
We think lhe last has been heard
of the Fernie objection, the premier
The following effusion from a
Ferguson Poet has been sent to the
Eagle office. We suspect that it
has some remote connection with
the masquerade ball. It is a
Tragedy in Two Acts, entitled :
What �� Mask will do.
There were Two Little Girls in Blue,
Who didn't know what to do.
Till a Seranston Professor
Firsthttgged one with such pressure,
That her chest divided in two.
The other one, she got her share.
For a Spanish dancer was there,
And sho shouted with joy,
"That's dear little Roy,
And it's not a girl you hugged���it's
a boy 1"
We are sorry to inform our readers that the author of this infliction
is still at large.
We have had placed in our hands
this week the first issue of The
Nugget, published in the prosperous
mining camp of Poplar. It is controlled and edited by R. T. Lowery,
a name well known and respected
in mining and journalistic circles.
We can confidently recommend The
Nugget to the notice of all who are
interested in the development of the
Lardeau gold belt as being a publication only a shade inferior in excellence to the Eagle itself! That this
new mining journal may be a
Pop(u)lar Nugget is our hearly wish.
We are glad to be able to record
a magnificent success tor our first
masquerade ball of this season, and
hope that it is only one of many this
winter. These social evenings are
very helpful in relieving Ihe monotony o( a mining camp during the
winter months, and every credit is
due to those of our ladies who took
part in organizing the proceedings.
A full account ot the various characters represented is given on our
