In out despatches to-day our readers
will see the result of Lieut. Governor
Melunes' folly in trying to run things
to suit himaelt. Sir Wilfrid Laurier
wisely came fo lite conclusion that he
had no other alternative, so dismissed
tht Lieut. Governor, not beforo asking
bim, however, to resign, which that
gentleman refused lo do. That this
action will meet, with the approval
ot the people 6f British Columbia
has already been only too- plainly
evidenced in the result of lhe election,
whioh fired Martin bodily and sent
Melunes in bla wake.
We, of Norlk East Kootenay, can
now congratulate out-solve, as welt as
our member, Hon. W. C. Wells, upon
latest turn of the tide. Mr. Wolls was
yesterday sworn in,as Chief Commis-
sioucr of Lauds and Works in lhe
Duiismtiir Government, and it is quite
within bounds to nay that abler man
for tbis branch ot the Cabinet catinut
be found among the 33 that will sit
the next House. We venture to
predict that Mr. Wells will not only
perform the duties of his ollie
thoroughly, but that he will do so to
the eiitii-c satisfaction of ull.

"The blow which Martlnlsru received
on Saturday was one of the meet significant expressions of public opinion
ever given voice in this Province. We
think that it may safely be asserted
that the cause of pood government now
stands firmly on its legs, and that the
incubus under which British Columbia
has suffered is for onco and all removed. Mr. Martin has only a scant
following of seven members at his
back, and it is not unlikely that some
of these will take the first opportunity
of deserting his sinking ship.

one upon which all wishers for a return to good government can congratulate themselves.���Vernon News.
The defeat of the Martin Government
at tho lat general election has brought
satisfaction to the people generally.
Many of those oven who supported
Martin and his eandidate in this riding
feel a sense of relief at Martin's defeat.
The systems and methods of that
moribund Government were all hostile
to the interests of the common peoplo
of the Province. So we find that many
who have supported the Government
candidate in this riding are now re-
j doing at the downfall of Martin,

place was thrown iuto great excitement
shortly afternoon yesterday, wben the

Owlog to the nature of the explosion,
it was impossible ts ascertain definite
particulars as to how many men were

the explo��ioi had effected. All the
fans were set to work with the utmost
speed, aud after several boors of intense suspense and arduous work the
mine was cleared of smoke sufficient to
allow of the search party entering. It
Mas then atcertained that the explosion
had confined itself to ouly one section
where eight men had beon work inc.
All were found at their several posts,
"oold in deatb," which bad been inst in taueons.
The work of bringing the bodies to
the sufraoe was at once bejznn and tbe
Bcene at the ��op of the pit when tbe
nnxioos mothers and wives saw tbeir
deir ones brought out fir the last time
wus one never to be -forgotten and cannot bo described. Several men who had

bruised consid��rably,but none seriously.
The names of tbe killed are: Peter

When I was a boy they spelled it
"catsup," but "ketchup" will do for
this story. The article ia made of
tosnatoea over in New Jersey, and has
nn enormous sale. A dear old lady in
Connecticut heard of it, and, having a
reputation in the neighborhood for
making ketchup, determined to try it.
A bottle was purchased in the village,
and on the following morning Aunt
Jemima started for New Jersey. Ar
viying at the factory she called for tho
proprietor, informed him that his ketchup was, if anything, a little better
than hers, and as she didn't propose to
be outdone at home, she wanted his
recipe. It was the first time she had
ever heard of a ketchup being better
than hers. The proprietor said, smiling at her innocence: "My dear
madam, I can not give you my recipe,
but if you will leave your name and
address I will see that you get as
many bottles of ketchup every season
as you may want all the rest of your
life." She returned home only half
satisfied, bnt the first installment of a

presence of tbe goat, so be bad him carefully concealed under the speaker's stand
uuiil the proper thne for his entry on tbe
stage of action. Colonel Lassiter was to
deliver the-prises with a fitting oration.
Thut part of his speech which was to declare the premium won by Allen Piper,
by Swnnn's decision, was duly embellished aud memorised. Allan est prominent
tn his rows of benches prepared for the
occasion in front of tbe speaker's stand,
the wbole ceremony being outdoors on
tbe bermuds sward. Allen was a believer in 8 cent cotton, frequent barbecues
and tbe "third party." Given to hilarrty
by nature, Joe bad warned Allen to look
solemn on this occasion, bnt had made
the mistake of supposing that tb-^rult
of corn liquor might add to his gnp on
solemnity. Allen straggled to contain
bis risibilities, hut the result was only
more redness of face and a certain swelling of neck that made explosion certain.
Near tbe speaker's stand Joe had tied
with a convenient slipknot a certain species of dog hard to classify by ancestry,
but facile princeps in local reputation for
tackling auy form of man or beast he was
set upon and for holding on like a mud .
turtle. His tail bod been amputated
while young, and what remained stuck
out nnd up like a banana Inverted. His
neck was biggest In tbe middle, and bis
ears, nhout the slse of a peach leaf and
mostly gristle, except a little flop at the
top point, lay close to bis bead. Tho
shade of his sides suggested the brlndlo
state color of souse meat, and that part
of bis nose between tbe tip and eyes was
wrinkled and sunkeu, giving bis phis the
appearance of being all mouth. Trim ot
legs, bowed of neck and eyes as big as
two glass marbles, his upper Up snarled
by nature to show bis teeth.

thrash him* fborabeL was tittering behind ber spread handkerchief. The whole
company watched tbe belligerent attitudes of Billy und Maje.
Attention ouce called to the goat by tbe
orator could never he diverted. Tbe colonel spread bis wlugs to soar Into the
beauties of pastoral life "wben tbe shepherds watched their flocks on the hills of
Persia and Spartans slept with lowing
herds among the vales of Syracllla."
The goat lowered his horns and sprang
seven feet at Maje, who squatted nt one
side and snapped at Billy's nose, but
missed. Billy wheeled nnd caught Maje
under the ribs and tossed bim straight
up. Maje turned entirely over In the
air and landed with his jaw clamped like
a vise in the fleshy part of Billy's bom.
Billy bleated loud an he whirled lo rcfa-L
the rear attack; a freckled face hoy witb
coppersas breeches and paper collar ran
oul In Ihe open and yelled: "Eut him up,
Maje! Hold y'r holt, sonny! Hurrah,
bully boyi"
It was Mnjo's master. The audience
rose up to see the fight Goat and dog
rolled over and over In the dust. The
colonel forgot his piece and stared wildly
around hiin. Allen, with eyes running
water from much loud merriment, ran
and caught the gnat by the horns just
as tho overseer seised Mnje's hind legs,
pried open his juws with his hickory
walking pole and slung him against tbe
spanker's stand, kerblnml
The arena bad obscured the forum, tbe
goat and dog bud spectators, but the orator uo hearers. Tbo colonel retreated
through a sido gate already cKpIed by the
Billy, and be, too, was retreating.
The colonel was oa the track and Bitty
was the engine. Kerthump, the wild
eyed, wsr painted savage, struck tbe rear
of the colonel's knee joints snd backward
be fell on Billy's back and was borne
outside tbt inclosnre amid such applause
as no orator ever before or since received
from the patriotic and liberty loving sons
or Reubenville.
How quick the transition from comedy
to tragedy. The overseer, believing Allen
to be tbe perpetrator of this plot, turned
fiercely on bim and was about lo break
his walking pole oyer Allen's head, while
he protested his Innocence and swore
be "never seen tbe dui-ned goat before,"
and the major bad to Interfere to prevent a riot, when Allen laid off. bis coat
and declared he was ready to keep up the
show If tbe overseer didn't believe It.

SjiiiptouK-A Victim Tells ot Hsr
From ibe Ttleiirni b, -Quebec.
The primary cause of indigestion or
dyrpapsia is lack of vitality; the ab*
senceof nerve force; the Uss of tba
lite sustaining elements in the blood.
No organ can properly perform its function! when tbe tooioe of nutriment
fails. When tbe stomach is robbed of
tbe nutrinifnt demanded by nature, as
���imitation ceases, unnatural gases are
generated and tbe entire system responds to tbe discord.
A praollotl illustration of the symptoms aud torture of dyspepsia is furnished by the case of Mr.-. A. Laboute,
who lives tn tbe village of Stadacona,
(Jut). When interviewed by a reporter
of the Quebec Telegraph, Mrs. Iiabonte
looked the picture of vigorous health,
showing no traces of the malady tbat
bad made her life for tbe time miserable. Speaking of her illness, Mrs.
Laboute said: "For about two years
11offend dreadfully. Uy dig* stive
organs were impaired, and the food I
ate did not assimilate, and left me with
a feelmg of flatulency, pain and acidity
of the stomach and frequently heart
burn. Toil condition of affairs soon
told on my system iu other wuys, with
the lesult that I had frequent headaches, diisine.-s.and at times a dimness
of tlsion with spots apparently dancing
before my eyes. I became so muoh run
down that it was with difflonltv I
oould do my Lousehold -work, and at all
times I felt weak, depressed and nervous. While I was at my worst, one
of my friends, seeing that the dootor
wae not helping me, urged me to try
Dr. Williams' Fink Fills. Uy husband
then got ma half a doaen boies and I
began taking than. After I bad used
two boaes J began to enjoy my meals
and the various symptoms of my
tronble began to disappear. I oon tinned the pllli nntil I bad need the half
doaen boies, when I again felt peifaot-
ly well. My stomach was ai healthy
aa ever it had been. I could sleep wall
and my head wu dear and free from
tbe diailueas and aohes tbat so long
helped make ma miserable. It is more
than a year sinoe I stopped taking tha
pilla, and health hu continued better
than It wu for years before.'* Hia.
Labonte added that she wiH always
feel grateful to Dr. Williams' Pink
Fills for tha misery they have releaaed
Mr fnm, and aha always advisee
friends who nre ailing to nu them.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pilla onre by going to the root of the disease. They

The guns of the Hours culled fu.uil-
iarly "pom-poms," uro 1-poundcr
Maxim machine guns, und an* of interest in several respects. A clause
in the St. Petersburg declai't'tton �����(
1808 unjoined lha no explosive projective less than 14 ounces in weight
should he used in civilized warfare-
nnd the Boer pom-poms hav.) the
narrowest margin to permit -t lieing
admitted hy the nations, besides lining the distinction of being the lirst
of their kind ever used in the field.
In order to make clear the full
meaning of this statement, we mist
flrst explain certain technical terms.
A machine gun is one that Is loudc I
and llred by machinery; a iiuie*.-: r-
ing gun is one thut is lo..d.d by
hand, und fired either by hand or ly
machfnery. The former wus limited
in calibre until quite recently to tliat
of small-arm ammunition.
The machine gvn dates from the
primitive tyie if Gatllng gun vs d
in the United Wtnl.es Civil War, The
lirst attempt to In reuse the calibre
above that of small-arpi ammunition
wus made iu the Hotchklss revolving
cannon of 1-5 In h ca'llre, thrnwhu
a 1-pound tthe'l. Its ranee was
about fi.fiOO yards, and It cou'd fire
80 rounds a minute, The objection
to It wus thut ft wus too heavy a
piece for its calibre.
The next Im* rovcinont was t'��
Maxim 87-mJtilin Uv fl,4fi inch',
which is entirety automatic; thn Is,
after firing the Iir, t sin t It is nrce -
sary only to keep the fin- er on the
trigger; the gun go.s on loading nnd
firing, nnd can discharge SCO l-
pound shots per minute. Tie ue'gMs
of this piece is proportionate ti its
calibre. This is the so-called "pompom" of (lie Boers.

"Thnt daughter of mine will he the

when she promises to do a thing It is as

The chief interest of the Queen'**
Birthday sports wtis centred in the
bniebnll maicli between Peterborough
and Wlndoi'tnero. The visiting team
went first to bnt and failed lo score.
The home team scored one in tbeir tirst
inning. Iu tbo seoond inning Windermere scored one and Peterborough
threo; third lulling, Windermtre 0,
borne team 4; fourth inning, Windermere 0, homo team 3. In the first half
cf tbe fifth inning tbe visiurs snored
seven runs through the careless fielding nud throwing of the homo team,
thus marring their playing of the
previous innings. At the end of tbe
game the score stood Windermere 18.
Peterborough 1-1, with tlie Inst half of
the inning un played.
For tbe short time (be teams hnd for
practice nnd tho lack of team work,
the game certainly was very credii able.
Immediately after tbe ball game tbe
horses wore called up aud much interest was shown in tbat event.
The danco in the evening was largely attended by people from nil tho
surrounding towns nud it was a most
soci 1 and enjoyable opening. About
1 o'clock lunch was served. Tbe party
broke up at 4 o clock, everybody feeling well satisfied with tbe programme.
