Relatives In Montreal.
Montreal, April" 30,- The Frank (lis
aster bas bercuved oue Moutreal home.
Mra. James Mundie, wife ol James M1111-
tlie, manager for the .1. W, Peck \ Co.,
this city, lost her brother, ber sisteriu-
law nml her four nephews in ihe great
landslide, A Leitch who with his wife
aud four sona peiislied under lhe fall uf
rock, naa a brother ot Mn, Mundie,
Ida .V Western Hue.
This question he refused to answer,
but Iteltlg pressed, be said:
"li whs in consequence of statements
made hy honorable Mr. Wetla upon bis
return hum Montieal, where be hnd
gone to see Sir Thomas ShaughneBsy,
and when he expected to make delivery
of the grants,"
The statements he preferred that Mr.
Wells should coiumunirate to ihe committee, ao Mr, Wells was recalled and
was asked to give the facia.
Wells, wlm was obviously ftnharrantied,
declined tn answer, It waa an executive
matter, he explained, and as such,
strictly privileged,
Then he was pressed to suv if he bad
known of Htiy reason before he went lo
Montreal siithYiejit to prevent the carrying out ofthe proposed arrangement.
He confessed be had not.
Had be considered tbe information be
obtained in Montreal of sucb a natiir
as to justify bim In refusing completion
of the pending settlement?
The chief commissioner answered lhat
he had.
Then it wns not an executive matter,
hut developed out of u conversation in
Montreal?
It was, said Mr. Wells, but that wits
a confident lei conversation.
Mr. Oliver appealed to the chairman
that sm-h a communication could not be
privileged.
As the point wus being debated, Mr.
Diinsnittlr abruptly inteijected, "Oil,
come out with it, Well !"
Tbe chief commissioner lllll refused
to talk.
'-Then I'll tell It myself," mid Mr
Dunsniuir,
He explained that Ihe Information
hus lirst been received by him Irom
Prentice, to whom the chief commissioner had Imparled it. Afterwards
Mr. Wells himself bad fully confirmed
and repeated the statement at his < Mr.
lim siiiiiu'si home.   It wis to the effect
that while be was in Montreal discussing with Sir Thomas Stuujthiteisy the
malter   of these   grunts,   he   hid   been
visited at the Windsor hotel hy Mr. W
I   Taylor, of iht linn of l-,brrt» & Tuylot
uf which  ibe ntlornfy'getieral  is the
senior member, Mr. Taylor hud pressed
bim to give up the deed or grant*., com-
pleiiii(i the settlement desired, to tbe
C P. R. The promise was given llial if
he would himself receive some 30,000
acres, it helug arranged to form a private land company of 20 men to take
advantage of the opportunity of Ibe
grant, those 20 Including two members
ofthe legislature,   besides   ministers of
the crown.
It was In consequence of the iufutuiH-
liuii tnat Mr, Wells had considered there
was too great an element of danger iu
bis proceeding further in tbe matter nnd
he bad returned to Victoria, bringing
the gtantB back witb him. This in lot
raation had subsequently been reported
to the executive and fully discussed al
the meeting when ihe cancellation was
made by orde-iu council.
Mr. Dunstuulr having made thia statement, Wells was recalled and fully cor-
rohated the starting information.
There ibe matter rests for the moment. Some other yet more startling (lis
closures are promised when the committees peat again 00 firtooday.
the Old M.m received tight volei each,

Now, we have known ' I'ncle Jim" for

The Pirates of Petiiance have arrived
and captured the town. Tbe lint per-
form-Mice W«l given Tuesday night to a
erowtled house, ami those who came In
doubt went n« av enthusiastic In tbeir
praise ol Ihe nrtlltle work presented. It
was a grand since*** bum Ibe overture
lo the tableaux at the close, ind was ■
most pleasing surprise to nil. The
atldletlCe looked lor the usual breaks incident to amateur performances, tbe
awkward errors, mul the crude work of
the new band, hut none Appeared. On
tbe conttary everything moved m a manner very much professional. Tbe chorus
displayed good training and the voices
blended iu a molt sat factory way.
The work by the principal characters
was strikingly gootl, bringing to light a
latent intent that was surprising.
Naturally Mr. McKenzie and bis wife
were excellent, hut so well were the rest
of them trained that there was not tbe
difference between ihe amateurs and
professional that is so often noticeable,
and su many times mars tbe performance.
Tbe Mckeii/les are entitled to a lot of
credit for the msgniliceut reaulta they
have produced, und it will be a long
lime before Cranbrook people will bave
an oppoitunlty 10 witness such a success* I
fui musical event again.
The stage sellings are excellent and
add very materially to the ancceaa of
the presentation while the costume are
Hpprnpriate in deslgu and elegant tn
material. Nothing has been left undone
and uo expense spared to give the people
lha full worth of their money.
The people ol Neln-nn al a recent maas
meeting discussed the lead situation,aod
although the? fully appreclatei tbe
movement ofthe Provincial Mining Association in passing 1 lesoluhon asking
for a bonus, yet the meeting was of the
opinion tbat it did not *.> far enough
and passed another resolution asking for
a specllic and larger bonus, as a lea-
poriiy aid to the lead industry, until
action can be taken ootbe taritt, Tbe
portion of the resolution regarding tbe
bonus it. aa follows:
Resolved, that while we consider tbat
no bonus which we could expect tbe
government to grant would be adrquaie,
