Trouble Among the Troops.
The members ol the Canadian contingent in South Africa are kicking over
the new order tbat is breaking up the
companies nnd separating tbt men. The
cause of tbe trouble is alleged to be the
glaring incompetency of the captain in
ottiiiiatiil. or at least that is the reason
given at headquarter*. Uut ilu. m«u um
tlie sufferers, as their acl-iou, though
natural, is considered mutinous. Tbe
military authorities have broken taith
wilb the Canadians in several instances.
They promised that the Canadians were
io l.e kept together, ami to be officered
by Canadians. They have broken faith
with regard to pay, and also regarding
the purchase ol discharges, refusing the
Canadians tbe privilege, The first ami
second Canadian contingents anil Slralh-
cona Horse did such brilliant work there
that tbey have aroused jealousy among
the llritish officers.
'The result is that the Canadian contingent of the South African constabu-
lory is getting the worst ot the deal in
every instance. It is rumored that Colonel Sieele has tendered his resignation
unless put in charge of Canadians. Up
lo the present uot a single Canadian
troop has lieen put into his division, although he was promised, so it is generally understood, that all,Canadians weie
to be in his charge, The feeling among
troops is running high, ami lhe results
may be serious.

How   It. 0.  Jennings   and   tins   Hlles   Let
One Oct Away,
R O.Jennings and t'-im Tbies have
been placet mining on Perry cteek the
past lew months, Their camp is about
six miles above Old Town, and they
have been living alone in their cabin.
One day lasl week they heard their dog
crying in agony and alarm. Mr. Jennings rushed out to the brush ami found
animal in lhe embrace ol an immense mountain lion. Jennings railed
o Tines io bring lhe axe, and in the
meantime, having imihing else to use,
he threw his mils at the animal. Without letting go of his victim the lion spit
like a tomcat at this mode of attack,
and finally let the dog go ami slunk
slowly into the woods. Titles hurried
out with a 22 rifle they had in camp to
shoot ai mountain rats, Not thinking
ofthe ferocity of the Hon or llic danger
he incurred, Tbies chased after him and
succeeded in hitting htm once in the
tiank. The bullet had no effect except
to cause the lion to turn and spit at him.
Su Identy it dawned upon Titles lhat he
was chasing a half starved Hon alone into (lie bush with nothing but a plaything of a rifle for protection. Thinking
then that discretion was the better part
of valor, he relinquished the chase and
sought in hurried llight the safety of
companionship at the camp.
"I hated lo lose the fellow," said Mr.
Tbies. "as it was the largest one 1 ever
saw iittt I could do nothing with a
small rifle, aud so had to let him go.'

Who Is lo Blame?
A number of young boys in town visited the Chinese places last week during
the celebration of Chinese New Year
and succeed in getting hold of considerable Chinese liquor. As a result several were intoxicated. It is hard to find

perhaps, did not intentionally bring
about the druukeuness ofthe boys, in

morning's session of tlie Liberal convention a motion put by Mr. Jas. McQueen
in favor of adopting party lines, was car-
Mr J. C. Brown, of New Westminster,
pronounced himself a convert lo Ihis
policy. He now felt that lhe interests
of tbe province and party would best be
served iu this way. He also declared
that lhe New Westminster Liberals were
a unit on the question.

then elected as follows:

Mr. Joseph Martin then made au exposition of his attitude. He said that
he intended to bend bis course in the
house entirely in the interests of the
Liberal party, having been elected as a
straight Liberal. He supported the
present government last session, towards
the end of it, and possibly might support it this session, because he preferred
it to a straight Conservative government
which ha believed would be formed if
the present coalition were defeated. In
other words he preferred Mr. Dunsmulr
and his associates to such a government
as Mes-r.-i. Helmckctt, McPhlllips, McBride, Gordon, Tatlow and others might
form even if leavened by the presence of
Mr. K. V. Bodwell. He would take his
position in the house entirely untraii:*
melted nnd would agitate for tho passage
of a redistribution bill before any other
legislation was allowed to come up in
the  house,   Mr. John Oliver, M. P. P.,
said:     "I   (ullv endorse the   statement
made by Mr. Martin,"
The afternoon session  was closed by a
vole of congratulation and confidence in
the Laurier administration.

Tbe Day Was Cekkrsied FO Crsnerook's
Sons of lhe Orient.
Last Thursday night the Chinese e'e-
tnent io Cranhrc-ok turned loo«e their
patriotism and firecrackers, and lur two
days the heathen did nothing but display his loyalty, clean linen ar,d silk
oveishirt. It is at this time that they
forgive their enemies ami remember
their friends, think Sam Suey, hit the
pipe and dream of the djy that tbey
will have accumulated asutticicnt amount
of Canadian money lo return to the land
of flowers, sunshine and cheap living, to
pose for the rest of their days as an Oriental Rorkafeller or Carnegie.
Ibe Chinese wipe out all scores during
the New Year's season. Every Chinaman is supposed to pay his creditors before New Years, but if he is unable to do
so, the score is wiped out, he owes nolk-
ing and credit is extended to him for
another year, as though he had always
paid liis debts. He may pay lhe old obligations if he wishes, but he does not
have to.
Grievances are also settled during the
New Year season. If « man has done
nother wrong be apologues, makas
1 mends and the enmity exists no mote,
it is uot good form for the aggrieved one
to refuse to accept the other's apology.
Etiquette requires him to forgive and
forget. So the Chinaman's New Year

vent to in lier fright. The man is across

Canadian Iron in Hiit.iin.
Tho London, Kng-., Speaker says:
"The arrival in tho Clyde of 3,500
tons of \ng iron from Canada is a
development of some significance.
Hitherto tho iron which has come
into this country has l.c.'ii brought
from the continent ami the Onlted
States when production Uiere has
been in excess of the demand; and
so far from Importing from the Dominion we hnve sont it ait average
of about 10,000 tons annually. Tho
shipment represents tlio first effort
of tha Pemtidon in.n Si Steel Company to cultivate a foreign trade.
This concorn is of a magnitude equal
to some of the largest establishments
uf Pittsburg; it owes iis Inception
to American brains, which were
prompt to recognize the iron and
stool manufnet urlng possibilities of
the country. Us works nre situated
ut Sydney, Cape Breton, an*- from
the immediate neighborhood it
draws Inexhaustible supplies of good
ore, coal and Hmcstono, nt prices
which bring the cost of the materials to only about :is. ;iti. per ton,
as compared with 18s. at Pittsburg.
Doing located in Canada, tho company pays no duty on sueh of i's
products ns nre consumed lu tht
country, and its position al tidewater :.ives it n great advantugu
over American rivals for the purposes of n foreign trade. Moreovci,

without consulting Kranco, Though
born in St. John's, in 1857, Mr.
Bond was educated at Queen's College, Taunton, England. His father, .Mr John Bond, was a native of
Torquay, Devonshire, who conducted
an extensive business at St. John's
as a branch of a Bridj
ini'tii. Tin* present Premier studied
law, but before being called to the
bar entered politics in 1880. In
tsS.'i ho was chosen Speaker of 11."

Sir William Whit Way in 1886 Mr.
lioml became lender of his party. On
Sir William Whltoway'a reiurn to
politics in 1880 Mr. Ilond entered
his Cabinet at Colonial Secretary,,
which post he held almost, continuously until 1807. In 1800 he was
ono of three delegates Io England on
the French shore question, and the
same year was appointed by both
tho Colonial and llritish Governments to visit Washington to arrange a reciprocity treaty. In is-.-j
he was sent to Halifax to consider
i lie fisheries and other matters witb
representatives of our own Government, In 1895 ho wns at thu Otta-
wa Conference. Mr. O, A. Dana
wrote of him: "A comparatively
young man, but his tact and ability
entitle him to rank with tho leading statesmen of tho day."

From what can tie learned there is out
so much snow in the mountains as is
usual al Ibis season  of the   year, and it
is predicted tbat the mining season will

progress being made in the mineral de*

Ttie death uf the li-*v. Henry Irwin,

as "Father Pal" will come as a shock
to all who bad the honor ut his aci-ualm-
Father Pat died In Montreal, the

England wbliber he was going to enjoy
a well earued test and id recruit hli
health which had become somewhat
shattered by years of work In the mining camps of the  Kooteuays.
Ills death Is an Irreparable loss to Ills

everything else afterwards was Father
Pat's watchword. He had a heart lhat
was always open and ready to alleviate
human suffering, mental or bodily, and
often at the cost of the necessities of
life lor himself. Time and time again
he has turned out of his own cabin and
bed 10 nurse therein some fever stricken

last dollar to one whom he thought
needed it more than himself. On one
of his trips to Bast Kooienay In 'in

that I could not keep money," and it
was true that the hotel men of Golden

Everything Looks dooj for i'oiith East Kootenay.
Marysville Tribune
Spring, gentle spring! wlil scon be
with us and wilb iis advent an era of
prosperity, the equal of which has never
before bten known In South Hast Kooienay, will dawn upon us. This prophecy
is made with a ftellig of confidence
Which Is seldom found iu the breast of an
e.llluiial wtiter. But as a sliaw shows
which way the wind blows, and as com*
iug events cast their rbadows before,
so do the events of the last few months
precurse a wonderful development and
a tremendous Influx of population into
our district In the near future.
As we have hail occasion to remark,
lu some previous articles iu this paper,
the eyes of the Investing world are
turned, and turned favorably, on
South East Kootenay.
Cradled between '.he Rockies and the
Selktrks, South Bast Kootenay has lain
dormaul for some years owing to various causes, lack of railway communication being the principal one. Bui
wllh the construction of the Crow's
Ne«t railway thing* bcj-on io take a
change. As all great things come slow,
ly. so has the development of iht? resources of tt.ls dlatl cl come slowly, but
very surely: and nu .v ..1 tbe eve of ihe
opening up of spring South Kast Kootenay Is look!"g forward to 1 magnificent
futnra. Those who are fortunate
enough to own property in any of the
many prosperous and growing towns of
the district are to be thoroughly congratulated. Many may have "hungoii"
to their holdings during depressing
times bul, Lhelr faith In tbe con itry
having stood linn, ibey will shortly
reap the reward that is by right coming lo them.
Perhaps no part of lhe dislrict is at
present, being taken more iuterest In,
both by thc people iu the country and
outside, than lhe Sl. Mary's Valley and
me country trlbutaiy.to it. This district is by uo means new to the hardy
Kast Kootenay prospector for a trail oi
his pick and shovel, his cabin aud his
claim stakes can he followed foi many
miles ou both sides of that beautiful
mountain torrent. Bui like pioucer
prospectors in other parts of the pre-
vince the claim holder ou lhe Si.
Marys has had to face that bug bear of
all mining enterprises lack of transport'
No matter how rich lhc showing*] no
matter how promising the lm!| gallons
may have been, the very fact of the St
Marys claims being so far from railway
aud water transportation has kept them
In the back ground so fir as the outside
world Is concerned for capital will not
come tu and develup piopertles
thai Is not adjinant to trans,
portalljn facilities. The building of the
Klmberley branch of the O. P. It. and
the building of Hie branch into Marysvllle weie both steps In the right
direction but llie continuation of the
latter branch up the valley of the St.
Marys will bring, uot one. bnt a do/:eii
or moro valuable properties within
transportation distances and these wlij
be able to give a good account uf themselves when the I line comes.
Tbe erection of the smelter, refinery
and white lead wurks at Marysvllle
will give an additional impetus lo mill
ing activity lu the whole dislrict ck
peclalty in lhc St. Marys country. The
building up ut many prospcroui towns
and mining campa will extend the already good market which the ranchers
and fanners of the dislrict have. The
general activity will undoubtedly attract capital from lhe mooted centers
of the east and from Europe and a very
short time from now South Rial Kooic-
uay will be tbe mccca of thu capitalist
seeking good and safe investment for
bis money.
