Some Interesting News From Vic
tori* Anent thc Contests
in thc House
Victoria, B. Cm Feb. a8 -Ueut.-Gov,
Mclnnes hu declined to be furtber ml
vised by Premier Semlin, and announced
that be would seek new advisors It is
still a question wbo will ba called in but
rumor has it tbat Dunsmuir or Martin
may be selected. Turner, Baker and
McBride had made overtures for coalition, and nn thia question Dunsmuir and
Baker had a warm altercation in the
lobby after tbe session.
Victoria, B. C, Feb. 23— Precisely as
indicated in these columns a week ago,
the * Scmlln-Cotton administration has
met its defeat at tbe hands of tbe people's elected representatives on tbe floor
of the legislature, being defeated this
afternoon on the motion for second reading of the Redistribution bill, which tbe
members of the ministerial party had
unanimously agreed would be tbe best
legislation (carried or defeated) upon
which they couM appeal to the country.
Although looked for for days, the collapse of tbe government when it did
come, matured in somewhat unexpected
manner to the public, Victoria's third
member, Mr. Richard Hall, having, the
honor of touching tbe button that exploded the opposition's well arranged
It wu after the second reading debate
had been continued by Messrs. Higgins,
Neill, Booth, Kellie, J. II. Martin, Pooley
and Turner—the general discussion beiug ao dry as to invite the match which
Mr. Hall held ready to apply according
to tbe systematic plan. His speech in
doing so was neither loug nor pretentious, though fruitful in important result*.
"I move the previous question," he
said—nnd even the gallery understood
that this was intended as the motion
tbat was to put tbe struggling government out of its misery. All parts of tbe
aaaembly. took on an expectant and suppressed excitement, while members hurried in from restaurant or library at the
summons of the divltion bell.
"The previous question has been
moved," said Mr. Speaker Forster, "are
you ready,for the question?"
"Aye," shouted the opposition.
"Aye," said tbe government rauka
quiet ly, realising tbat the end had come
at last.
"Shall the motion carry?"
"Aye," again cboiused the triumphant
Tbe "noea" were manifestly less vociferous.
The 'ayes' have it, I think," said
Mr. Speaker, while the members of the
opposition raised a cheer in which the
galleries joined enthusiastically.
The bill is lost." said Mr. Speaker,
as the division was calculated and recorded, 19 to 18.
'So is the government," called out
someone in Mr. Martin's near neighborhood—it may have been Mr. Martin bimself—and then the pent up enthusiasm
broke forth, tbe speaker's call for order
in the galleri s being utterly unheeded,
while tbe rattle of desk lids on the left
the clapping of bands eyerywhere, and
the cheering of members and spectators
attested the general feeling of relief aud
-atUf action,
A lew brief moments psssed, and then
Hon. Mr. Semlin rose, and with very
evident agitation, and a somewhat
pathetic quaver ia bis voice, said: "In
view of what has just occurred, I think
it is only right lo ask that this house at
its rising do stand adjourned until a
o'clock on Monday next."
The honorable gentleman was proceeding to elaborate his reasons when the
opposition leader interposed a suggestion
that Tuesdsy be named Instead.
The premier, realizing that be was no
longer leader of the bouse, acquiesced
immediately, and the house adjourned
thereafter, Mr. Turner having expressed
the hope tbat tbe government would arrange to have pending private legislation and' noii-cootenlious public business disposed of previous to tha termination of thc session.

It is even probable that perjury proceedings will follow, Sarel having gone so
far as to swear that he did not know
whether he had written thc "copy" prosed in court; that be did not know
whether the handwriting wu his or not;

A Ureal Mis Up.
Victoria, B. C, Feb. 24.—The lieutenant governor has nothing whatever td
say on the political situation. Throughout thc city scarcely anything els- ii
talked bIhiuI. Names of prominent men

censors to the present premier, it being
freely rumored about tbe streets mul 111

and the name most frequently heard in
connection is that of H. Dallas

present membership of the house by
bringing Cotton or some of tbe present ministers into the cabinet. Thi:

It is generally understood that the

A Canadian government though defeated may carry 011 business of thc
country with the consent of the opposition and as far as cau be gathered today tbere will be no objection to this being done.
One ef tht Boys Writes ol Life at the Bai-
racki la Ottawa.
Special eormpniident to Tbe Herald -
The barracks,
Ottawa, Feb. 20, 1900.
At laat we nre settled down to barrack
life, and most of the boys are getting
used to it, although they found it a 111 tie
difficult al fi st to accustom themselves
to its restrictions. Tbe men are very
comfortably quartered In the cattle sheds
where two tiers of bunks ate arranged on
either side, upper and lower. We have
great fun over our respective names, our
barracks being labeled "Holstcins," aud
nf course we are getting to be known by
that name now. Tbere are other mimes,
such as Herefotds, Devons, Shorthorns,
etc. Some of tbe boys have become
great ladies' men since tbey got down
here, especially Harry Melton. It is becoming quite a by-word now, "Have you
got Melton's address-*"' I think he gave
it to everyone be met between Cranbrook and Ottawa.
Tbe boys nre anxinurlv awaiting the
arrival ofthe Cranhrook Herald.
We procured two large streamers at
Winnipeg, tbe full  length ofthe car, on
Inch we had painted in large black letters. "K. K, B.C. Troop. Strathcona
Horse to Sleele (steal) Pretoria." According to reports from tbe front it don't
look as though they are going to give us
a chance to do anything like that.
'Old Bobs" and Kitchener are beginning
to play their bauds, and I think they
hold wieners and will take in the main
Saturday night we enjoyed the hospitality of tbe proprietors of tlie Russell
theater, and saw Dicken-s Old Curiosity
Shop presented by a very good and well
balanced company. Tuesday night
Lewis Morrison presents Frederic the
Great, and Wednesday night The Master
of Ceremonies, to be followed later ou
with 1'uddin' Head Wilson.
Evenings and Sundays we are beseiged
by curious sightseers, especially ladies,
who are exceedingly eager to see the
wild men from the woolly west."
We are getting excellent board—no
delicacies but good, substantial fare.
Uniforms issued this week. Horses not
here yet. We have had our final medical examination aud I think alt have
passed successfully.
Kind regards to all.

The Flra el McVittle ft Helchlsoi Is s
Hustler for South East Kootenay.
The overage man in tbe pursuance of
his business fails to realise sometimes
what his neighbor is doing. It is the
privilege, and in a sense, the duty of a
uewspeper to comment on matters of
this kind, and that in why The Herald
takes occasion at this time to speak of
the untiling work of tlie mining brokers
firm ol McVittie & Hutchison in spread-
lug the many good things about South
East Kootenay to the four winds of
heaven. It is true it is iu their line of
business, but every man they attract to
this district adds so much to the opportunities of IboFe already here, for the
new resident brings with him more or
less business. They are helping Cranbrook and every other town in tbe dis
trict by their woik. Tbe boys never
grow weary of well doing, aud South
East Kootenay Is their prayer, their
creed and their dream. May they prosper in their good work.
Forced to Give ap the Figbt by
erf s Terrific Onslaught
The  Good   News  Has  Brought
Happiness to England and
the -Colonies.
London, March 1.--Buller has
entered Ladysmith with his full
force amid great rejoicing.
London, Feb. 2j —The war office has
received the following dispatch from
Lord Roberts, dated Paardeberg, tieh.
37: Gen. Cronje and all of bis force
capitulated unconditionally at daylight,
and is now a prisoner iu my camp. Tbe
strength of his force will be coinmunlca
ted later. I hope that her majesty's
government will consider tliis event satisfactory, coming as it does on the anniversary of Miijuba. On Saturday Gen
Buller faced the strongest position on
the road to Ladysuiith and hard fighting
Iihs been in progress. His army is 'in
three wings advancing steadily toward
Ladysmith. The Boer general at Colenso
sent IC Miner a message that his com-
maudo hud beeu smashed by Duller aim
recommended that peace overtures be
started at ouce.
London, March 1.—War office has re-
ceived following dispatch from Gen.
Ilulhr: "Lvltleton's headquarters
March 1. General Diindonahl, with the
Nuliil Carbineers and a composite regiment, entered Ladysmith last night
The country between us ami Ladysmith
is reported clear of enemy, lam moving on Neltrope."
London, Match r.—Gen. Ilullei's dis
tiuct success in storm Pieters llill.hrnigs
rescue of Ladysmith near, hut the war
office intimated last evening thai an
immediate announcement of relief need
not be expected. The going to anil
from the war office at midnight of officials and messengers, suggested that important news had beeu received. If
thiH were the case Lord Liusdowue oh
viously desired to sleep ou it, before tal •
ing the public into bis confidence.
A Successful Dance.
The dance at the Cosmopolitan Tues
day eveuing was a most successful affair,
There was a large crowd present, many
coming from Kimberley, Moyie and
Fort Steele, The music was fine, and
those present had a most enjoyable
time. One of llie amusing features of
the evening was the cake walk, presented by the irrepressible Pieper and inimitable Pushce, and the gyrations,
gymnastics and gtsceful evolutions of
these two devotees of Terpsichore convulsed the people with laughter. Mr.
Small, the proprietor, was complinu n
led by all ou tbe success of the event.
London, Feb. 27.-—Secretary of state
for war, Marquis Lansitowue, announced
in bouse of lords this afternoon that
prisoners captured with Geu. Cronje
numbered 4000 men. Gen. Cronje will
lie sent to Cape Town. Later this afternoon the war office received tbe following detailed dispatch from Lord Roberts:
Paardeberg, Tuesday morning. From
information furnished daily to rue by
intelligence department, it became evident lhat Geu. Cronje's force was becoming more depressed and tbat discontent of troops and discord among leaders
were rapidly increasing. This feeling
was doubtless accentuated by disappoint
ment caused among Boer reinforcements
which tried to reteive Gen. Cronje, 011
being defeated by our troops, February
33 Therefore I reaolved to bring pressure to bear npon enemy. Each night
trenches were pushed forward towards
enemy's laager so as to gradually contract bis position, and at tbe same time
I bombarded it heavily with artillery,
which was yesterday materially aided
by arrival of four sit inch howitzers,
which I had ordered from Deaar. In
carrying out these measures a captive
balloon gave great assistance by keeping
us informed of dispositions and movements of enemy. At 3 a.m. today a
most dashing advance was made by the
Canadian regiment and some engineers
supported by the First Gordon Highlanders nnd Second Shropshire.-;, resulting in our gaining a positon some .six
hundred yards nearer the enemy and
wilhin about eighty yards of his trenches
where our men entrenched themselves
and maintained position, A gallant
deed worthy of our colonial comrades
and which I am glad to say was attended
by complete success and slight loss.
This apparently clinched matters for at
da-light today a letter signed by Geu.
Cronje in which he stated he surrendered
unconditionally, was brought to our outpost under (tag of truce. Iu my reply
1 told Gen. Cronje he mint present himself at my camp, and that bis force must
come out of (heir laager after laying
down tbeir arms. By 7 a.m. I received
Gen, Cronje and dispatched telegram to
you announcing fact. In course of conversation he asked for kind treatment at
our hands, aud also tbat his wife, grand-
son, private secretary, adjutant and servants might accompany bim wherever
he might be sent. I reassured bim and
told him bis request should be complied
with. I informed him that a general
officer would be sent witb him to Cape
Town to ensure bis being treated with
proper respect enroute. He will start
this afternoon in charge bf Major Pretty
mau, who will hand him over to general
commanding at Cape Town. On all

Miners May Secure Licenses ind Record
Claims in Tbis Cily Nov.
Constable Morris has been appointed
sub recorder for tU*is portion of the district lying within the neighborhood of
Cranbrook. Hereafter those desiring
miners' licenses or to record claims may
do so in Craubrook, and save the extra
drive of twenty-four miles to l-'ort Steelo
and return. This is one of the things
thnt The Heraid has contended for during the past year, since it meant so much
to the people of ibe district. With sub-
recorders at Cranbrook, Moyie, Kimberley and Fernie, tbe saving in time and
expense lo the miners of the district will
be Incalcunble. Now, when action is
taken to give similar conveniences to the
people of the district in court matters,
Ihere will be no reason to complain.

The Properties in This Part of the
District Are Looking Very
North Slar Shipping Ore.
Frank Robbins, managing engineer of
Hie North Star mine, and Neil Mcl.eod
Currau, financial agent, left last Monday
for Trail, 10 arrange for tbe treatment of
North Slar ore. Tbe railroad has beeu
completed to the tramway, and last Saturday two carloads of ore was shipped
to Cranbrook and on to Great Falls.
This is the first ore shipped over the
North Star branch, end it was most appropriate lhat it »hould come from the
Norlh Star mine. The tramway is now
ui working order, and everything is
ready for regular shipments. And within a few months, when the results ofthe
•shipments become known, the North
Siar mine will jump i„to prominence as
one ot the be>t lead mines the country
has ever known. ,Thc management of
ihis property have had little or nothing
to say, but month after month have in-
rested thousands of dollars in maohtn-
7 and legitimate development Onder
the direction of Superintendent Parker
the workings have been enUrged and
lhe development earned forward in an
intelligent manner, n.mi now the mlue
is in a condition to -show by daily shipments what a wonderful property it is.
A party of four drove down to Inspect
the workings on the Theo property on
Monday and were delighted with'the
showing of ore Mr. Wickstrom is in
charge of tlie woik. aud when the
'•whim" is put in place for hoisting purposes work wiil proceed more rapidly,
fhe ore nt the bottom of the -shaft contains copper pyrites in such quantities
that it would pay well to concentrate,
nut there are good reasons to expect
much richer ore near tbe footwall toward which a crosscut is uow being
driven, there is already in sight a width
of over live feet of concentrating ore and
still no sign of a footwall. Wheu tbe
size of the ledge has been determined
ihe shaft will be continued to a depth of
nne hundred feet, the ore taken out during development will be stacked ready
tor removal to the concentrator so that
there netd be no waste. Every day's
.vork but strengthens the opinion already expressed by many mining men
tbat the Theo property will be a large
copper producer. Its proximity to the
railway makes a fair grade of ore very
trainable Fine simples from tbe bottom
of the shaft may be seen at the office of
McViltie & Hutchison.

company of which Mr. Townsend is president. A new shaft has been started ami
is uow about twenty feet deep. Specimens of the ore were taken from the

president for exhibition. Enough work
will be done at once to cover the assessment !or the three claims aud operations will then tease until lhe summer
opens np when moie thorough development will be undertaken.

"So they oil Hved happily in this

of their nurnlM'.r had becm slain*, burst
into the iMibin*. audi one of the foremost, with ii single blow of bis tomahawk, killed the heroic l-Jnglishrann."
"And what nbout Dorgle?" Sadienska,
with breathless interest,
"The child fired tin* lasl loaded pistol
at the savage who had murdered bis

"Afler two wenry days of Journeying

"Georglo was turned over by the old
warriors to be tortured by tho Indian
"Imitating their elders, these little
wretches tied the while child with
leathern thonga to a stake driven firmly into the ground.
"Before piling ihe brushwood round
him, the Indian children, with much
yelliDg and confusion, retired to the
distance of about SO paces, nrmlng themselves meanwhile with light tomahawks nnd with bows nnd nrrows.
"They Ilrst drew n line which it was
forbidden to puss. Then onch one in

"George felt, the arrows whiz pnst bis

But to have it pay
properly, you must
get the value of your
money in paper, and
then have the paper
put on by workmen
who understand their
business. Any man
can paper a room and
any man can cut a
head of hair. But,
the question arises,
how will it be done?
Do you want your
paper to wrinkle? Do
you want a botch job
No, of course you
don't. You want
good work. When
you are ready, see
