Before this took place Col.

Later on the Treasurer announc-  »ed his resignation. Hon. J. D.;  Prentice followed.this by-a tirade  «of abuse on his late colleague, D.  -M. Eberts, andthe latter's partner,'  "Taylor, for which he was called to  «©rder.  That two .ministers shonld forsake the Premier after be had preJ  ^maturely sacrificed two others to  save himself-was a .piece of poetic  Justice.'

They  found that the government answer^  ed questions during the 1002, session pertinent to the matter not in  -accordance with the real facts.  iFurther, in a return- called for last  .day they failed to refer to a numVer  of letters which were clearly official,.  ..altbcaigli marked "personal."

He  said that the investigation had reelected upon every member of the  'Government, including the Finance  Minister. The premier had seea  fit to call for the resignation of two  of his ministers and a third had  resigned of his own volition. The  first minister one year ago was  aware of all the facts which Jie now  had in his possession. 'Why did  the premier postpone dismissing  these ministers? The premier was  not to be entrusted with tbe affairs  of the country. Mr. Martin interjected that this was a question for  the Governor, Oliver said it was  a matter for the House. They had  no need to vote supply to a minister  vwho. was not considered worthy  of it.

Prior & Co., in connection  with the Chimney creek bridge.  Engineer Gamble had submitted  four tenders to tbe Premier who  requested that his firm should be  allowed to tender. The witness  told Prior as a friend it was scarcely  proper forthat firm to tender, and  further that it was not specially capable of handling tbe supplies wanted. On his return from Bella  Coola he found a tender in from  Prior ■•_; Co. for $170 lower than  the "lowest "tenderer, although he  had not asked tlaetn 'to tender.

(We do not necessarily endorse the opinions expressed in this column.)   ,  THE MECHANICS INSTITUTE  Editor Delta News—Sir: In  reference to your notes of recent  meeting of the Mechanics Institute  it was suggested that a financial  statement be made and published  in The Dtlta News. It is very  necessary and regular. One cannot  expect the public to largely maintain any institution without knowing occasionally how the funds are  used. Several subscribers of long  standing are awaitii g a statement  before subscribing fuither.  Properly conductevl and maintained the Institute is a valuable  asset lor the Delia, where we have  so little outside the churches that  tends to improve or elevate.

J G WADE, Ladner.  To Intelligent Business  Men and Farmers:  The declaration of independence  is to be seen 'no more by the public. The characters on :the doeu>  ment are said to be fading <away.  They are now as obscure as -some  of the great and "fundan ental principles laid down in the instrument  are in the minds of 'the successors  ofthe first apostles of tolerance,  freedom and liberty. The letters'  have evaporated. Those that are  left, like "the aforesaid principles,  are to be boxed up and hidden  firpm the light of 'da.y and the eyes .  of men.—Ex.  Thomas Cunningham gives the  information that M. J. Henry,  nurseryman, has sold to British  Columbia farmers this year 60,000  fruit trees. Mr.' Cunningham estimates that 100,000 trees have been  imported from outside, and fully  60,000 more have been sold by  other nurseries in the province.  And this means that the new fruit  trees laid out this summer is more  than double the number of any  other year, or in all about 220,000.  "News" is a queer word—:tbe  initials of north, east, west, south—  which appeared on the earliest  journals as a sign that information  was'to be had from the four quarters of 'the world. The sign was  NEWS and gave us our word  '"news."  The weather has been playing  queer pranks across the border.  Kansas had'two cyclones last weeK.

It appears that the Transfer  had a spark catcher™.!, n the fires occurred the  other day, but it was defective. This was only  discovered after the damage had been done.
