PROWHBMUHJSUTIIE,
On Friday (April 1), Hon. Mr.
Davie atated that he bad been en
trusted by th* lieut-govcrnor with
the duty of forming a ministry, It
wa* usual fora minister when dn*»
called upon dining tba progress of a
atnaion to aak, and for the house to
Cnt, an adjournment aufficiently
g to admit of theaeleoUon of th*
minitten and thtir going before the
oeuntry for re-election. In the prec-
•nt iuatenoe the necessity for suo'ii
a ooune ha* been avoided and he
hoped membert of the opposition
would r recolleot thia and 'expedite
the remaining basinets of tha house.
The cabinet wai at followi: Mr.
Robson retained hit pretentpotitions,
Mr. Vernon had been appointed
ohief commissioner of landi and
work*, and he (Mr .Davie) would
retain hi* office of attorney-general.
This cabinet had been lubmitted to
hi* honor wbo had approved of it.
The honorable gentleman further
atated it was tit, intention of'the
govornment in the future, probably
not a long time after the prorogation, to 611 the fourth portfolio, and
to- hate a president of the oouncil.
Members.from Island constituencies
would be selected for these, He
hoped the minittry which had been
formed would be tatiifaotory to the
houae. Mr. Beaven .complained that*
the itland constituencies had no representation in the new cabinet. He
■aid the government ought to give
tbe name* of those who were to be
oome members of the new cabinet.
Mr. Grant said the vacant positions
should be filled at once. Mr. T.
Davie and Mr. Turner contended
that tbis was neither ntceuary nor
desirable. Hon. Mr. Robson claimed
that the government as it stood wat
entirely competent to carry on the
butiness of the country. He pointed out that the Beaven government
had been unconstitutional if thit one
wa*. Mr. Dunsmuir uid in 1872,
when the Hon. Mr. Walkem wat
appoint**! toa judgeship,the present leader of the opposition, as premier, had mitt the house with only
two memben. It might belaid
tbat there were, three memben in
that government, counting in Mr.
Hett's* attorney-general. But at a
matter of fact Mr. Hett did not
constitutionally hold a teat in the
government, and therefore it was
virtually oompowd of two members
only.. Through tai unfortunate oir*
outnitirce a precisely similar Case
had been created oh this occasion,
and, without detiring to say any
thing unkind df the leader of the
opposition, he wu surprised at the
position he wa* now taking, He
did not consider it affected the interests of the provinoe in general
whether the members of the cabinet
represented the island or mainland.
His experience wa* that cabinet
ministers from tbe mainland were a*
anxiou* to do justice to the island
a* if tiiey represented it. Mr. Beaven aaid government memben were
continually bringing up something
whioh had occurred in the past, us
if that were any argument. Mr.
Bole said th* actions of previous
government* could only be quoted
aa a precedent in io far as they
were right When Mr, Beaven met
the house in 1872, if he remembered
aright, hi* polioy was to hav* three
ministers, and ht virtually bad three
at that time. The personal quet-
tion ihould be left out of consideration. It wu merely the policy of
the government that the opposition
attacked. Their count wat declared by the leader of the opposition, who wu admitted to be the
beat parliamentary authority in the
house, tO be unconstitutional, and
what he said should bave considerable weight with the house, The
leader of the govemment should
atate now who his other two colleague* are to bo before the house
prooeed* to butineu. The premier
■aid he had no expectation that his
announcement Would meet with tlie
approval of the opposition, but he
had followed what he considered
good precedent. If it had been
constitutional for three ministers to
carry on the business/of the country before, it wu equally so now,
and the, cabinet was not less con**
flete beeaaie it wu to be increited.
Ie moved that the bouse proceed to
the orden of the day. Mr. Beaven,
•peaking to the motion that the
houae prooeed to the orden of the
day, again claimed that the course
of the government wu unconstitutional. The motion to proceed to
th* orden of the day wss carried.
B. C. HOWlttl.
Editor Comjhbi*--.-Sir, I am very
lorry to tee the government haa seen
fit tq reduce the hospital; grant by
81000, this is not w it should be.
Under existing cireumitances, it ie a
grievous wrong (so much hai been said
about the government /not feeling
kindly toward New Weitminiter on
account of th* oily sending te parliament a representative in opposition to
the government). This act, with some
othere in which the city is concorned,
go to provo that ..the, above assertion is
not far wrongV;.-The whole grant of
t,000 with outside help, has never
oneufflcUnt tobrinjtheiniiitutiun
up to the standarditihoiiMJian*. -Che
board of minageiueiB cannot make
enda meet, and the requirements increase da'ly. The present buiW!w is
"unfit for uie purpose.* It cannot accommodate more than half the applicants. Many sufferers, .who have
helped to build tlio country, have been
forced to seek other shelter became
the hospital had not the uocoiQmoda-
t-6p or meant. It seems to be if' the
government would take a portion of
the grant to high schools and appropriate it to hospitals and other charities, the public money would be laid
out in a way that would be more acceptable to the whole peoplo. I trust
the government will see their way clear
to give auch assistance to the Royal
Columbian Hospital as to enable the
board of management at tiie ond of
the year to be free of debt.

Af        ——T—■    J -   '
On Friday afternoon Bon. Mr.
Davie announced to the legislature
the. formation of his cabinet. Mr.
Davie retains the portfolio. of at-
torney-genenl and becomes pre
mier also: Mr. Robson retains his
positioni of provincial secretary; Mr.
Forbes 0. Ve'fnon, one of the representatives of Vale district, has no*
etpted the position of chief oom
musioner of landi and work*. Hon.
Mr. Davie also announced that it
waa the intention of the administration to all the positions of finance
minister snd president of the council during recess. All three memben pf the cabinet are representative* of mainland constituencies,
and it is promised that the president Of the council and the minis
ter of finance shall be representa
tives of constituencies onthe island.
While every one mutt regret the
tola of Hon. Wm. Smithe, it is
well that » person possessing
th* abilities of Mr, Vernon hu
been secured u his successor. It
will be necessary, of coune, for
htm to go to his constituents for rer
election, but we should think there
it not much doubt of his being returned either by acclamation or by
a large majority.

The New Mlnlslrjr.
The Colonist of Saturday says:
We have to congratulate the country upon the. formation ot a minis
try which .will i commend itself to
th* entire electorate. The new premier of the province, the Hon. A.
KB. Davie, hu been in the public
geu for many yean, and u attorney-
ganwal proved his capacity in the
high*** degree for the duties of that
ofHoe. Recently u leader of the
hou*,' in the enforced absence of the
premier, he displayed abilities of a
high order and popularized himsolf
with the  memben u well of the
ration as of the government,
honor tbe lieutenant-governor
displiyed a wise discretion in calling upon the attorney-general to
form a cabinet, and that gentleman
hu been equally fortunate in the
selection of his colleagues. Hon.
John Robson retains his old place
ia the cabinet and will continue in
the future u in the put to work
ably and indefatigably in the interests of the country. The member
for Tale, Forbes 0. Vernon, hu
been appointed to the chief com-
miuionenhip of lands and works, a
position which h* occupied with infinite credit under a previous administration. He will be obliged to
go before Hit conitituents for re-
election, but it is not improbable
that he will be returned by acclamation. Any opposition that might
bt offered bim would only be factious.
He is justly popular u well in the
interior a* in thit city, and will
carry with, him in hit new duties
the beet wishes of a host of friends.
The premier announced yetterday
in his plsce in the house that the
finance minister and president of the
couhoil would be appointed during
the vacation and that both these
gentlemen would represent island
couttituencies. A judicioui selection will no doubt be made, since
there is good material to choose from,
and ih any event the hands of the
government will be materially
strengthened. The new ministry
promises to tie an exceedingly able
end powerful one, and by emulating
th* example of its predecessor in advancing the belt interests of the
province, will retain, as it now holds,
the confidence of the great majority
of the people of British Columbia,

"I don't se* any reason why they

The itr. Yeieniite, which arrived
yesterday, repurte thtt the Mexico is
•till on the rocks. Every effort waa
being made by the officers of the boat,
but uytt the dtmtge could not exactly be estimated, Part of the crew
and tbe stevedores Ire in Victoria,
while Capt. Huntington and the remainder of tha crew ire with the vessel. R, P. Rithet (Rithet, Welch &
Oo.), who it the igent for the Pacifio
S. S. Oo. in Viotoria, came up on the
Yoiemite yestorday as far at tht
wreck, tnd will make a thorough examination of the vessel. The Yoiemite also brought op tome divers te be
uud for tht same purpose.; The
Mexico ii lying on Belle Chain reef,
off Saturnia reef, about a mile from
ihore, heading southwest,, her bows
out of tht water but her item iub*
merged at high as her hurricane
decks. She ii lying very euy, and
out of danger except from heavy nor'-
westen. Sea captaim uy that the
pilot who had her in charge muit hive
been: very, far out of his bearings.
From this point Frsser river and Active Pass oan be plainly seen in daylight. The Mexico is the fourth vessel which tilt been ttrinded in the
immediate vioinity of the reef. The
tint wu the itcsmer Constantino, the
next the steamer Empire, and the
third the steamer Alki. All three
succeeded in getting off with little
damage, snd.it ii hoped that the Mexico will be similarly lucky. It is
feared, however, that her chancel of
getting safely off are small, though if
the weather continuea favorable she
may succeed in io doing. The strong,
heavy winds which prevailed on Saturday shifted her slightly and rendered her position still more dangerous. Tbe Mexico ii a wooden steamer, and wu built fire or aix yean ago
in San Francisco for the Mexican
trade. She is owned by John Bern-
inghaih of San Franoisco, and wu
chartered by the Pacifio Cout Steatn-
ahip oompany. She was of 1,341 tons
register, snd hai been commanded by
Capt, Huntington ever sinco she was
launched. The present was her 71st

snd styles. From experiments msde by
these companies, It hu been found thtt

to be equal to gold, silver or platinum,
