Victoria, Pel), a.—Tbe parliamentary
week [list closed Ims wltuesaed Hit* beginning, of the eml mi ttr us'he Seuiliu-
Cotton government is concerned. It
uiny continue to exist by graee of lis
supporters fnr » few weeks longer-, but
llie time te bound to come in the neai
future when some one member will feel
bimself aggrieved iliule matter what
nbout) am) take advantage of tlie wimj.hu
tlmt he funis ready to Ills hand for the
overthrow of the government. Mr.
Prentice bas already emphasized ile
completeness of the larce into which
popular government has degenerated in
this province, ami Premier J'reutice s
tbe new title he has received in rouse-*"
quence at the hands of lm brother, parliamentarians.
Tlie discussion of tbe Coal Mines Regulation hill showed ihe frail structure of
the government.
Jlou. Dr. McKecbnie has charge of
the bill, and witb his colleagues iu the
government had determined to force the
matter through witb a rush. It was ou
the motion fur second reading of the
bill, and no consideration was to be
given tbe opposition, or any of llieir Arguments listened to. -In vain Messrs.
Mcl'billips aud Joseph Martin nrgtd tha:
the insertion of the educational clause
which is tbe essence of the hilt, would
work scandalous injustice hy taking the
bread and butter out of the mouths of
honest white workiugmeii, simple because of their inability lo read Kngllsh.
In vain did Col. baker plead fur just one
day's grace in order that be might ascertain the effect such legislation would
have upon the toilers of bis contltuency.
In vain did Mr. Helmcken ask fur an adjournment of the'debate until he could
gin's reminder that it had heen promised
the debate would go over until ihe following day.
••We've changed mir minds/' was
Hon. Dr. McKecbnie's bltini rejoinder,
iu admission of a deliberate breach of
faith; while (be private members of the
party smiled ami aueeied at the Indignation of tbeir opponents, fancying themselves secure in lhe possession of a majority of one—not counting Mr. Speaker.
Mr. Prentice bail not been reckoned
in the calculation at ull for the simple
reason that be bud accepted a ''pair"
wiih Mr. James Dunsttjore when tlmt
gentleman had been called to New* Vork
liy the news of bis brother's fatal illness
There w;.s in consequence link interest
manifested when be took his sent after
Mr. Helmcken bad heen curtly refused
permission to adjourn the debate, or
even when he (Prentice) rose in his
place and cattght thespeaker'satlention,
There was 11 magical change in attitudes and expressions, however, when
tie said what he had to say, proceeding
to Illustrate the ability of any member
of the government party to "hold a pistol at the head ol tlle premier." as tne
oppositionist had expressed it—and
cninniaiiil obedience.
The house had learned hy the evening
papers, be said, that Mr, Alexander
Dunsmuir had jnst died iu New York;
and in view of the close relation borne
by tbis bill to lhe Dlltisuiulr interests be
thought it would he little more than ordinary courtesy lo postpone its further
consideration  until  the morrow,    lie
added significantly that he had just
been released fiom liis pnir with Mr.
Dunsmuir, nnd ihere was enough in the
manner of tbis remark to indicate tbat
he would, if tlie mailer came to a vote,
raise bis baud with the opposition.
"I think it would he well for the sen-
■ member lor  Victoria to apply again
w for an adjournment *of the debate,"
be said, "and for the government to
grant it," realizing that be had the government and all its following completely "rattled."
If they had considered it the government might have realized that they
would, with Mr, Prentice voting against
tbem, bave Mil! a tie, ami be able to
save themselves hy the useful speaker's
As it was they were seised with
panic.   The ground seemed  less secure
an ever; tbe'arrogant position they
bad been inconsiderately asserting' ill
through the afternoon was abandoned in
a moment,
"Oh, very well," said tbe president of
the council.
And the adjournment was forthwith
grunted, tbe silence of the government
phalanx being lhat nf titter aud complete
consternation. And the very next day
it happened again. The government
were determined to force a conclusion of
the debate, and foolishly declared with
positiveness that they would hold n
night session to do it. Mr. Prentice,
with one other supporter, quietly suggested, "Oh, will you!" and the government recognized the ever present pistol,
and threw up ita hands. Tbis is parliamentary government in Uritiah Columbia under present conditions,
When reference was made to tbe provincial offer on Tuesday, Col. linker
aaked the indulgence of the house while
be read a teller indicative ol Ihe patriotism which exists among liiiti-.li nutlets

"Dear Mr. Honeytitau; I happened lo
hear this morning that some of yonr H
C people were sending troops to Soulh
Africa, aud being very much interested
thought I would write and see if you
could give lue any information about it.
I thought 1 had outlived any sen It mental feelings toward the 'Old Country.'
but just Ht present 1 have a strong desire
to go aud fight for her, and would like to
go with western troops. I think I am
quite well qualified. I sei veil iu the
Spanish war as sergeant of a troop of
ruigh riders, and am in fine condition
physiclally. My prospects are very
good, but 1 can't help feeling I ought to
lie at the front. If tbey have any trouble getting men to fill out tbe troops and
you will wire me at my expense, I will
come at once.

Again, in endorsing Captain Irvings's
unanimously adopted lesolutiou of loyally and fidelity, pledging lhe province io
support with men aud means the Motherland until lite present just war Is fought
lo a successful end, as it must be, Col
linker lead au extract from a letter he
had jusi received from Craubrook, slat
ing that there were $fxty-seveu applications from tbere to join tl-.e British Columbia contingent. There were twenty
more from Pernie. and altogether liis
constituency could safely he counted on
to furnish too of just the right sort or
men, as all the men of blast   Kootenay
enthusiastic cheersr
Continuing, tbe colonel held that the
resolution bt ought forward by Captain
Irving was only expressing the feeling
of intense loyalty and devotion that was
going up irom all the colonies anil all
parts of lhe great British empire. It
was such a resolution as the house could
imt do better than pass unanimously and
wiih enthusiasm.   He was particularly
pleased with the concluding portion of
the resolution, which asserted lhat the
war now entered upon must nt all costs
be fought to a tiuisb, (near, hear )
When one took up the daily papers and
read with regret uf what could not but
be accepted hs temporary reverses, il
was indisputable that comfort was at the
same lime to be found iu the fact lhat
these reverses were hot iu any way disheartening the British troops, bit on the
contrary making ihem more than ever
determined to carry the war to a success-
sul conclusion iu defiance ol all things.
This was the characteristic of British
troops. They might meet with temporary defeat, but tbey refused to know il.
They might be "licked" for the moment
but they would come np smiling, and .
win in the end against any odds. The !
present war, as alt wars, was to ho deplored, but it was of inestimable value
iu binding all the colonies oi the British
llag more closely together than tuey bad
ever beeu before, presenting Great Britain as one united nation, and showing to
the world llial it was such a nation that
now bad to be reckoned with in any
quarrel with Knglaml.
The resolution was agreed to,

Many persons dislike the idea of buying
mining shares lest all of the money invested should be lost. The plan of operation
adopted by the Kootenay and Algoma
Gold Mining Company, Limited, absolutely insures a success sooner or later;
and that success seems to be now certain
in the PEDRO CLAIM which appears
to be on the same ledge as the Black Bear
You are sure of some profit and it will
probably be a very large one.

South Kast Kootenay is all light, in
patriotism as well ns iu everything elae
When lhc call came for voluiilcers, and
It was announced thai a recruiting station would he opened at Fort Steele 011
last Monday, a wave of patriotic enthusiasm swept over the district, ami hy
Tuesday night III** full quota of forty had
heen examined and accepted. The roll
of honor is given a hove, and shows those
-alio lost no time In responding to the
call of the mother country by joining

Captain Hdnimid Parker was designated hy Colonel Steele as recruiting ofli-
cer, The captain is a veteran ot lhe
Bngllsh army, hut has lived hi Hast
Kootenay about seventeen years, and
will leave wilh   the contingent   for  the
number who applied bul failed to pHss
the medical examination. Ofthe i-.uin
ber accepted, over one half enlisted from
Craubrook, the balance coming from the
other towns iu the district.
Orders were received yesterday afternoon from Captain l'arker, calling 011
the contingent lo report in I'ort Steele
at 12 o'clock today. It is now understood that ihey will come back to Cranbrook tomorrow moruiug and leave for
the east 011 Lhe noun train.
A glance over the roll will show thai
Soulh Rast Kootenay is losing a fine
body of meu, and many of them have
beeu in lhe district a long while and
have friends by the score. The Herald
regrets their departure, but glories hi
iheir patriotic courage, and freely predicts that the reputation of South l-'.ast

than any British force ever suffered, es

Kootenay & Algoma's Annual Report.
To tbo President nml PI rectors ol the Kootenny and Algoma UoM .Mining Com*
puny, Limited, of Cranbrook, I*. ('. *
liciitliiifu : Tho operations of the Compnn\ since its reorganisation and tha
removal of headquarters to Cranbrook have be«i confined to three properties.
It was understood that the policy ol the Company should Iw to confine expenditures to the initial development ol properties sutllclently to make them saleable,
uud then to sell, the available capital ol the Company not 1 elng sufficient to enable it to thoroughly equip and operate ;i mine. In pursuance of this plan the
work.loin-on the " Kootenay " claim near Waneta in West Kootenay was confined
to the year's assessment, while the adjoining claim was restaked as the "Cranbiook." The showing on those claims seems, ns far as I rati learn, to be that of
an Immense iron capping allowing a little copper, end the work done up to the
pre-u'iit timo does not appear to give any idea of tin* site "f the real ledge, or of lhe
quality of tho ore, though the assay*, shun |2.00 In gold and two per cent copper;
the sit mu ion of these claims ou lhe bank of the Columbia river and on ihe .Vein 11
A Port Sheppent rallwiiy, within five miles ol the Nortfaport smelter, is of greal
Importance in deciding the value of the ore; Uie <"-i "i shipment would be so
slight that a large body of low grade ore would Ite very valuable, and ii is evident
that a careful fliul systematic course of development shoatd f»* commenced on them
as soon ns possible with u viow to determine the extent ami quality of the ore body.
Tin* Company undertook to do a hundred feet "i work on the -■ Pnion Jack,"
11 claim about live miles from, and south of, Cranbrook. for which work a half intercut in the claim was to lie acquired, bul at tin* depth <>f thirty fivt the- appear-
um «■ ui ii,«- it-aig-a -.--.i** sucll thai it was deemed advUahl-? ^abandon Uie work and
forfeit all claim to the property, bat a half interest was permantly acquired in tbe
"St. George's Cross," an adjoining claim.
Por several months after this the Company remained [die, -naming numerous
different propositions submitted without finding one etutaM-a to your scheme of
operations until in Xovemlwr last a contract wns entered into with the owners of
the "Pedro" to do one thousand dollars worth of work on that claim for a half Interest; two hundred dollars was Immediately exi>ended in stripping the ledge for
a distance of over two hundred feet, showing an average width of over three feel
of ore, from which assays have been made showing s value of $20.00 in gold, silver
and lead. It was deemed advisable to postpone farther operations tilt the winter
was over when work could l-e more economically carried on; the ore i- verv similar to that mi the surface in the ** Black Bear" claim, snd ii is almost certain that
you have the same ledge. Von may enngratntate yourselves on this fact, aa at
the depth nf about ninety foet the workings on the "Black Bear" are in ore that
carries good gold values, It may be well to point out hero that the" Pedro" is
only half ft mile (ovor easy country irom tbe North Star branch ofthe Canada 11
Pacific railway.     Timber ami water are convenient, and concentreUng machinery
can la* operated at A  moderal «l, so that the ore can be marketed at s lowei
cost price than the average. Tho showings at the surface on tin- " Pedro " and at
the depth attained in the " Black Bear," viz.. one hundred f*-»*t, coupled with the
conviction that they are both on the same le*tge, warrant the conclusion that ynu
have a property which will develope, with comparatively littleexpense, into an ore
producing mine which will net a handsome profit to the Company, and 1 think
you arc ta be congratulated upon your success, for while the theory you propose
10 work under,  was that,  in a number of venture-, one success would cover all
losses, yon have scored a deckled success on the second venture. I, myself, fe«l
confident that on the " Pedro" venture you will make many thousands oi dollars,
and it is possible that development will prove the Waneta properties to be still
more valuable-

If ouu wishes to make soap bubbles
which will last several days, prepare
the following mixture In n room where
the temperature is uot lower thau 03
degrees: Dissolve at a gentle heat one
part of castlle soap, previously cut Into
thin shavings, in 40 parts of water, distilled, if possible, and, wben the solution Is cold, filter It
Moving done this carefully, mix in
a bottle by violent and persistent shaking, a little at a time, two parts of
glycerin with three parts of the above
mentioned solution of soap and allow
It tbeu to stand where it will not he in
thc way of dust. The liquid, which Is
nt tlrst clear, soou becomes turbid. After a few days a white precipitate will
have risen to thc tup of the liquid, leaving the remainder clear. Draw off the
clear portiuu with siphon (a bent tube)
and keep It for use. To U1G a Hlphou

During the past year the price of copper was subject lo m.iiiv changes, resulting in  a generudly much  higher  price
than  hail  ruled previously.    The Atiml

Inspected the working-* at the mine a
few (Uys ago and is much pleased with
the outlook. Tlie Bhfcft -su the large

good pay ore is now showing steadily,
This is eighteen inches in width, adj lining the talc footwall and assays fo^ 5}
per ton in gold, silver, copper and lead,
the percentage of copper being about
four per rent. The remainder of the
ledge eons sis of a rose colored quartz,
similar in appearance to to that in the
small, rich ledges. There is now a little
water coming in at the bottom of the
shaft, and the ore chute is evidently not
far nway, The dip of the ladge has become nearly vertical and there is now no
doubt of llie stability of lhe foruiatioa
and the continiiniee of the veia.
A Itial shipment of the tellurtdt ore
from the small ledges will be made almost nt ouce and the result of the shipment will opeti tbe eyes of investors to
tlie   fact   that   the   Pay  Roll   is worth
The work of development which iu i s
initial stages was necessarily done under
a foreman, has now reached the point
where it can be more economically carried 011 by contract, and arrangements
are beiug made lo sink on the main
