A     Slitle at Cosil Crock.
At ,one. o'clock   y-estcrday   niorning
the  stillness of    tha    night   at Coal
Creek was broken by an ominoua sound
which frightened the; fow  people  who
were a'wuko aiid  aroused   others  from
their "slumbers'.   Some thought at  first
that it was a whirhyuul or a cyclone,
others thought it ft-as* tlio rumbling oj
an earthquake, and n low ■' bad 'sinners
thought it must bo the crack of  doom.
But in a very few  moments   thoy  all
learned that it- was/ an  avalanche of
snow which had suddenly bid adieu tb
its steep resting place on the mountain
side aud  tobogglned  down   hill- to-a
mora level resting   place.     The   slide
started well ii;-* towards iho top of tho
mountain and followf-it'ii narrow gorge,
down its sido jumping from the -lop  of
a cliff of rocks at the lower end of the
goi**iO and sproii'lliig-rmt in  fan bhapc
after leaving:  tlio  trough'-liko gulley.
When it left the gulley it took a leap of
over one.hundred and fifty feet before-
it struck terra firm a again, and if a
man hnd  been  standing by tho rock
wail at tho time, he could have enjoyed the novel spectacle of an  avalanche of snow living  through   tho air
over his head carrying' brush, trees and
logs with  it as it   wont.-    Had the
manager of such'things 'informed Tun
Lbimtur of tho event it would have had
a representative posted ..inaiiiBt   that
wall eo.thatit conld have told its,reader3
how a snow tlido   looks   viewed  from
beneath. i No--=-difference '• how    bad
things are thoy might'bc -worse'.   Had
that gulley extend -d down the side of
the hill three lniiidsecl feet [nithcr, thus
confining the. great5, bulk,, of  snow a
little   longer   in   the   compact    body-
in which it must have-li'-*.veiled down
tliat trbu'.-;li, ail the houses which stood
in its fiaok would have beon ground to
kindling wood, and the occupants, wall,
we will not think of that.    As it was,
the great r moving  niass  of ■■ boulders,
trees and'logs began to'spread out like
a fan as soon as it had taken-Jts groat
leap over the cliff and - thus its force
and weight was greatly diminished before it reached the houses standing in
its course.. As it was, ."several families
experienced  a'severe fright   aud  it
seems miraculous that not,a, single individual was hurt.    Mi;. Thos, Keith
lives iu a house near the. upper end of
the slide, and had'gone" to  bed,   but
MiasNeith, the teacher, was still up
whon the.roarin'g avalaiiehe broke upon them. . Mr. Koith, hearing the roar,
sprang up iii bed and asked his daugiit-
■^^ivl^T^vl-^tT^niaWi-jf, and slTcTsald"
she. thought  there must  be  -v great
.w.jndstorm  springing, up.' -But   Mr.
Keith soon found- out' that it,.was a
slide and upon iuveiSligatiiigfoiind his
'Kitclien partly, filled wifli'suo'iV,-"'-'*'""

Our Old Friend
1 In another column wc quote an'item
from the Cranbrook Prospector suiting
that our old friend Bob Dewar, of Fori
Steele, has bonded his mineral claims
011 Alki Creek, a branch of the, St.
Marys' river, to Mr. Levick. We visited that locality two or three times a
few years ago, once in company wilh
Mr. Robt. McKinnon, and we believe
that Mr. Dew;ir has a mosL promising
prospect for a paying copper property
We have.camped for months with Mr.
Dewar and packed grub over snow in
the winter with .him and we know Bob
to be a true blue friend under any" and
all-circuinsl.-incL's. *: .W'c liiipe-h-jj'w-Vi bo
a millionaire as the 'result, of ihe bonding of bis claims.

and Mr. A. Bed:. Mrs. Deck's dining

After the oysters and oilier good things
were discoursed, social chat, cards and

ii'iun lu'i'o nml i.i-ii cmill'li'iitly looking
forward to bumper houses,
obstruction and nroiilable debate. The
government vaults had certainly looked
for an extended speech by Mr. Oliver
on the. Kaien Island transaction, followed by others of the liberal stalwarts,
and from the fact Ihut the inemuer for
Delta was seemingly closely engaged
in consulting maps and other data when,
the fatal bell was rung, not only tho
speaker but a number of the members
as well sprang to the false conclusion
that Oliver had been caught napping .
ahd cheated out of his big-speech of tho
session. Mr. Oliver had originally intended to devote some time to a forcible
cj-iticism of tl(e deal with tho Grand
Trunk snd ol her significant actions of
the administration, but it was felt that
no practiettl benefits for tho country
could bo gained by further speaking at
tlm pivpent juncture.   It was m> evident
• hat tin- administration would not at-'
tempt reply tluu it. M-ss felt a further'
elul.'iintion of very definite charges
would l'.. a -,e;1.;t(, nf tjrr,e. ji0Ccc it
was that Mr. Oliver's g:-«i«t upeech re.
maiiied imdeliveicd, and thu reply to
ihe speech was passed without division'
• 111 the third day of consideration.
The linn! spi-akois in the debate were
Messrs, Kvai's, Williams, Tanner, Hull .
and wells, a majority of whom focuased
their criticism upon the Usurpation .of-
the functions of parliament involved in
tin- goveriiiimnt's giving away of'the
G. T. 1* , terminal-situ, by order-in-
council, and the -jjoveruinental destruction of the free school system, erutwhilo
the province's pride and glory.
Mr. Williams delivered one of his fa- '
milii-tr hiciures on .Socialism, v-tried
with an exceedingly practical rcforenca
to the excessive cost' of litigation iu
British Columbia; and the necessity of
reform in this connection.
Tlm majority of the bills dealt with
during the oponing week havo stood in
the attorney-general's name, and are
devised to correct errors and omissions
in legislation of iho 11:1st for which tho
Crown's law ofiicer is to be held responsible. .",..' . ' -
