This plain avowal was made fcy
Mr. Macdonald, leader ol the opposition, during the course oi a discussion this afternoon in committee ci
the whole on Hawthornthwuite's hill
to amend the Coal Mines Regulation
Act. As was intimated yesterday
would he the ease, this innocent appearing bill gave rise to a protracted
dobate today, and to sircnous opposition to Us enactment into law.
There were exciting scenes this afternoon and for a lime the chairman
ol the committee completely lost control while Hawthornthwaite and Oliver exchanged compliments. The
sum and substance of the whole matter was that the opposition took exception to the hill on tlie ground thai
its principal provisions were unneces
sary, being already part oi thestat
ute laws of the province and that i
further provision proposed to penal
ize working miners for infraction cf
the eight hour clause by a fine or im
prisoument was a proposition whicli
tlie leader of the opposition and Me
Innes declared to be wrong in principle and entirely uncalled for by tho
miners of any part ofthe province.
Attorney General Wilson intimated
that the uill was unnecessary as ils
chief provisions were already contained within the Coal Mines Regulation act and that its passage would
simply be a piece of superfluous legislation. Notwithstanding this stale
mment, Wilson said the bill shoul.t
pass and Premier McUrldc also spokd
strongly in its support.
Oliver attacked the bill vigorous!;
and in the course of bis remark
dealt with tlie Socialist platform
contending thai lhc whole course ■
the Socialists in tho legislature wa
based upon tho idea of stirring Up industrial striii- in the hope of bringing
in conditions which would strengthen
their cause in the province. He energetically condemned tho supine con.
duct of the government in assenting
to legislation which admittedly was
unnecessary, declaring ihat their
course in so doiug made obvious the
fact that Hawthornthwaite was now
In the position of master of the ut-
Oliver's vigorous attack brought an
equally forcible response from !h'
leader of the Socialists, who charge.!
that the Liberal party was just s
anxious for Socialist support as wan
the government and that overtures
had been made by Liberals with the
object of gaining the Socialists' assistance to defeat the government, ll
was this charge that evoked Irom
leader Macdonald the clear and comprehensive denial quoted above. T.i
this denial Hawthornthwaite made
no reply, but later he took occasion
to attack Oliver personally, eharg-
Inging him with being willing at an,»
moment to sell his principles for tin-
sake of office awl reviving the old
story of Oliver's anxiety to join the
McBride governmeul when first
Oliver waa up immediately with .1
forcible refutation ot this charge anl
delicti either Hawthornthwaite 11
Mclliide to substantiate in tbe .slightest particular the accusatiou. No re
spouse coming from either party, Oliver went on to say ttt.ii tbe leadu
of the Socialists hud either been
grossly misinformed or was not particular as to truth in his statement.-.
Here Is where the trouble that
threatened grave disorder arose.
Haw thorn th wal t« demanded a retraction. Oliver declined to retract and
attempted lo continue his remarks.
Hawtliornthwaitc continued his demands for withdrawal and still Oli
ver kept up his How of oratory. Hawthornthwaite shrieked his protests
aud Oliver yelled defiance, Meanwhile the chairman, entirely unaccustomed tn parliamentary proeee'
lugs, made uo eflort to Interfere and
pandemonium prevailed.
Finally the premier came to Haw
thorirlhwalte's assistance and advised the chairman that Oliver's ie
marks were unparliamentary ami
should be withdrawn. Oliver mail.
tallied that he had said nothing lit
parliamentary, repeated his form-.1!
remarks aud declared his intention of
slaying hy ihem.
Hawthornthwaite professed to rind
in Oliver's repetition of his original
remarks a retraction of that portion
to which lie had taken thcehief excep
tion, aud declared that he was satis
fled with Oliver's apology.
Oliver stoutly repudiated the suggestion that lh* bad"Vithdrawn in the
least particular any of his previous
remarks, Hawthornthwaite maintaining silence the incident vvas allowed
to drop.
Tbe outcome of the discussion in
committee was that the first clae.se
of the bill was defeated,Cotton, Tat-
low, Grant and Clifford of the government voting with the opposition,
while McNfiven, opposition, voted
with the Socialists and the government. The bill was still in committee when the house rose.
The' only other incident of intcre it
in today's session arose In connection
with the debate on the second reading of the bill to license commercial
travellers. McOowan (Vancouver) a

The 3pLtilng i:f spring will also sit
the opening ot the Marysville smelter. All through the winter work has
progressed .steadily ou this structure
and now thai the construction is
nearly completed, South Easl Koolcnay lias a smelter ihat is modern in
every respect, as all that export
knowledge and money can do to
erect an up-to-date smeller has been
done by tlie Sullivan company. Mr.
Weeks, who has been in charge, r.p*
pears Lo be one of the kind thai believes iu deeds and not, words, and in
consequence the mining world has
beard little or nothing of the work
as il progressed, but now that it is
nearly completed there will be plenty
of material evidence that Marysville
has a .smeller and that thi; Sullivan
mine, with its great body of ore, is
ready for operation.
Last week .James Finlay, who has
charge of the mine, was in Cranbrook
looking for men and making other
arrangements for active work on iin
property. During the past few days
quite a number of men have gone to
the Sullivan and within a few weeks
the number will be greatly augmented.
Smolting at the new plant of Iht
Sullivan Group Mining company, at
Marysville, B. C, should start with
the first furnace about March 1. The
second furnace—a duplicate of the
first, with a capacity of 200 tons of
lead ore daily—is expected to be running March 16, The last of the ma-i
chinery is on the road, and cold weather is the only thing expreted to delay operations.
At the mine near Klmberley about
35 men are at work ou development
ami stoping. When the smelter starts
lirst furnace the crew should be
increased to about 50 miners. The
tramway, 8300 feet long, connecting
■the mine with the worth Star branch
of the C. P. R., is running and the
ore is being moved, the bins are
complete und ore is being rushed,
while shipments of about a car of
silicious ore are being received daily
from the Quilp mine at Republic,
Wash. Tho (Juilp has a contract with
the Sullivan for supplying allthe silicious ores required.
A feature of the smelter will lie the
new tlahei Iin convert er. It is being
tried experimentally by the American
Smelting A Refining company at
its Pueblo, Col., plant. The converter for the Sullivan, which was made
in Spokane, i.s designed to reduce the
sulphur and facilitate the free extraction of the zinc. The crude ore
runs about 15 to 22 per cent sulphur.
It is crushed coarse and is roasted
in a revolving machine to out down
the sulphur charge to 8 per cent.
Then it is still further converted in
the Habcrlln plant hy a hot blast
which heats the ore almost 1o fusion
and cuts down the sulphur charge to
t per cent. The ore, instead of being
reduced to line granules, as is done
in most roasters, is left iu good
sized pieces much like coke, aud lhe
removal of the sulphur leaves air
passages nil through its texture. It
is fed into the smelting furnaces with
out   the expense ot briquet tint1;.
Iu the smelter furnace fusion is secured With about twice lho speed of
the old time methods, since the blast
is swept right through the porous
ore. There are only two products
from tin? smelter—lhe silver-leal bullion and the iion-ziuc-sulphur slag.
The third product—a sort of middlings, made (mm slag mixed with
lead—which is produced in smelting
practice under ordinary conditions is
It is not expected that the Sullivan will engage in custom smelting
for the present at least. It will
take some time to net the plant Into
the most   economical working order.
There i.s a vast reserve of ore in
the Sullivan mine that runs about 33
per cent in lead and 11 ounces in
Suporintendonl Weeks is in charge
of the smelter. He is an old smeller
man, with n Inrge experience iu
western plants. The Sullivan Group
company is controlled by Charles
Sweeny, George Turner and the Federal Mining A Smelting company.

Wm. Henderson, of Victoria, wlm
is in the employ of tbe Dominion government as resident architect for' the
province of Urltlsh Columbia, arrived iu Keriije last night to make his
report un ibe available siie.s fur the
new poalbllice building. Mr. Hender-
not only has charge nl all Dominion
government buildings iu the province
mu he also includes in bis duties a
similar relationship to Dominion iel-
ephone and telegraph lines. When
asked as tu his work here Air. Hen
derson .spuke of il as a simple mat
ler. 'there were only a few sites
available for the new public building
ami he did not see any reason for
sectional feeling iu lhc'matter, lie,
in his report, would forward to the
government the various particulars of
diflerent sites together wiih the
prices asked. His recommendation j.s
to choice was then left to the Mini)
ter of Public Works. His choice was
usually selected unless the p&opli
clearly showed that they disagree.!
with it. Mr. Henderson Intimated
that the selection would be made
without any delay and that the construction would commence iu lhe
spring. Already jao.OOU had been
granted and this would be sufficient
for the first year's work. Mr. Henderson leaves tomorrow for Rossland
where he will meet Jas. McEvoy
land commissioner of tho coal company t-o secure the price on the coal
company's old site;

O. Paulson, the victim of the blasting aceidmil in the .Sl. Kugene mine
last fall, intends to circulate among
the miners for the purpose of obtaining sufficient money to take him to
Sweden, where he has relatives living. Paulson's case is a sad one, anil
he is deserving of any assistance
which can he given him. After 'he
accident there seemed to be little
hope of saving the sight of eith,»r
eye, Everything possible was done
for him within the power of the local physicians, and then he was taken lo Spokane and placed under the
treatment of Dr. Harvey, an eye specialist. Paulson returned to Moyie
a few weeks ago. He can sec a little out of hoth eyes, but his vision is
so dim that he will forever he incapacitated for making a living by manual labor. He wishes to go to the
old country, where, perhaps, he can
go into some little business and make
a living. He is a good, steady young
man and those who arc in a position
to help him along should not fail to
do so.

Of whal he could ilu after he had
reached the age when Ifaerallway companies dill not consider his services
worth the price formerly paid. The
service of a railway man was different in many respects than that in
any other ileid of labor. His opportunities were circumscribed, aud Ills
chances for amassing a competency
for himself unl family in later yexi\s
were limited. The idea proposed did
nut mean that the railway man was
asking fer am gift from the govern

being allowed under restrictions imposed by the government to secure
lfiO acres of land without complying
With the clause in lhe homestead law
providing for six months residence
each year until the land could be
crown granted. So far as making
improvements each year, that would
be only right and fair, and the railway employe could provide for such
conditions. Ile slated that this was

Last Saturday the people uf Cranbrook welt shocked Uo hear of the
death ol "Tim" Love, one of lhe best
known characters in South Easl Kootenay. lie had been in pour health
for some lime, hut still it was nol
thought that he was near death's
door, lie passed away easily and
quietly and is now at rest. Timoleau
Love was 77 years of age. He was
born iu Lancaster, Ky., nml was a
veteran of the Mexican war, and for
whieh he drew a pension from the
United States government to tlie
time of his death. A strange coincidence, Gen. Lew Wallace, the author
of "Ben Hur," and a Mexican war
veteran, died the same day. and there
are only a few of them lefl. Mr. Love
has visited mosl of the mining fields
of the world and for years had been
a respected citizen of this district.
Cndeitakcr Ueaity is holding the le-
mains until he hears from relatives.

impossible to do a thing until Saturday. In conBe(]iienee, it was necessa-
ry, at the lasl moment to arrange to
send the forms to Fort Steele for
printing, and cul down the size of the
paper to four pages. By next week
everything will he. in shape once more
