Vlctorfn. May 13.���Parliament was
prorogued Saturday night by Justice
Walkem, administrator, acting for
Lieutenant Governor Sir Henri Joli,
who i* in California, trying to regain
hia health whioh haa become isnpared
during hi* residence in Brltlah Columbia.
The House during the session just
closed passed 81 bills whioh were assented to, carrying appropriations
amounting to 17,476,335.50, five millions ot which is for railway subsidies.
Fifteen of the bills passed .were
measures incorporating railway companies) and carry charters and building powers.
Daring the last few days of the session the members found time to give
some attention to pleasanter things
than law-making. Thursday night
Price Ellison, East Yale, the Government whip, was the recipient of an
address from the party and was presented with a purse of gold in appreciation of his seryices during the session just passed, and on Friday Finance Minister Turner was presented
witb an address signed by every member of the house, recounting his many
services to the province in the years
gone by, expressing their regret at the
prospect of his retirement, and their
hopes for his success and happinsss in
his new field of labor in London, as
agent-general for tbe province. Friday
night after tbe adjournment tbe Speaker
gave a banquet to the members and
recording angels, otherwise the members of tbe press gallery, and on
Saturday everyone attended the gym-
kahna of the Victoria Hunt Ciub at
Colvvood park.
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and
Friday, night and day, a continuous
fight wae kept up against ths loan bill,
by Smith' Gurti. and a fewStti'ef V. V.
k E. sympathisers, and at every stage
Curtis and Neill offered all kinds of
amendments which were aimed lo distent the purpose of the bill, but they
all met tbe same fate, by majorities
ranging from ten to thirty. Thuisday
au attempt was mad* to insert a clause
prohibiting the C. P. It. from tender
ing for the construction of the Coast
Kootenay line, and as admitted by its
supporters intended to force the Government to give tho contract to the V.
V. k E., regardless of other tenders.
This really proved to be tbe tight of
tbe sessiou, all the heavyweights tak
ing part in the debate. At one time
it seemed, from a spectator's standpoint
tbat tbe V. V. k E. people would win,
until they were unmasked by the Attorney-general in a short speech, a
speech which showed the promoters of
tho latter campany to be fakirs and
placed their supporters in the bouse in
a vory bad light indeed. McPhillips
had demanded the reading of the con
tract which tbe Government desired to
make, and wanted tc know if the V.
V. k E. were not prepared to sign it,
and also desired to know the result of
the latest conference heid between the
Government and the promotere.
Fresh from a conference with E. V.
Bad well, solicitor for the V. V. & E..
Mr. Eberts Was prepared to furnish all
information desired, which proved to
be the death warrant of tbe promoters'
hopes of pulling down big money. Tho
company refused to sign the contract
unless given the subsidy at once on
thirty miles of road to be built this
year from Midway to Cascade, and
another thirty miles from English
Bluff to Clovsrdale, on the line of the
Great Northern running from New
Whatcom to New We.ttninister, The
company to be allowed to take its own
time about building the balance ol the
Hue, aome IJOO miles, and would not
build it at all unless they received the
Dominion subsidy of $8,000 per mile
in addition to tbe provincial subsidy,
They will build these two short lines
witb ths provincial subsidy alone, for
the first one would connect at Cascade
with the line now buildiug by tbe
Great Northern from Marcus to Cascade and give tbat road ingress into
the Boundary oountry and enable thein
to feed the Montana smelters with tbe
B. C. ores, while the latter line could
be built cheaply over level prairie and
by patting on * steamboat ou the Victoria run for a year the promoters
woald be able to seoure the $475,000
bonus voted by Victoria in its famous
ferry by-law.
It is now said that the members
will not bs allowed lo remain st their
homes many weeks before being called
te the capital again to ratify ucontract
(or the construction of the Vornon-
Midwiiy Hue, whiob will be commenced
this year and pushed to completion,
This road wheu built will reduce the
time from C'ouat to Keolenav some St
hours, give the farmers ot Yale aud
Okanagan Valley a market tor their
produce, enable the miners of Boundary
RoaslauU end Nelsou to secure home
growu supplies at rates considerably
lower than those now paid, and satisfy
the coast demand for quicker transportation to Kootenay. It all these things
oan be accomplished by this one line,
and there iano doubt that they can be,
it should stop all olamor for a direct
Coatt-Kootenay line,
Grand Jury's Presentment.
To the Honorable A. J. McColl Chief
Msy it please Your Lordship,���We
the Grand Jury of North East Kootenay beg to extend to you a hearty
welcome on this the occasion of your

S. Redgrave, ,be granted * superannuation pension by tbe Government, he
having reached tbe age of 70 and having for the past 17 years faithfully

hs is held in the highest esteem.
Aud wj your petitioners shall ever
His Lordship expressed his appreciation of the personal references in
the presentment, and informed Mr.
Innes, who was present, that he would
take great pleasure in doing something
he had never done before, to wit; He
would write personally to the attorney-
general fully endorsing the views of
the Grand Jury in every particular.
As mentioned in last issue the Golden junior footballers had decided lo
visit Revelstoke on the 24th to meet
the juniors of that place and try conclusions. The following telegram explains itself, and we hope tbe boys will
receive every encouragement at the
hands of our citizens iu Iheir efforts to
take a team down to Revelstoke.

Palliser Pabulum.
From Oar Own Correspondent.
Palliser, May IC���A welcome changsf
iu the weather since last week has set
the Kicking Horse bucking. The roar
of Ihe awful avalanche is heard near
and far. From Mt Palliser a dosen
torrents are leaping in tho <��ildest abandon to join the mad Kicking Horso
thousands of feet below. All the old
prophets foretell a grent rise in all the
rivers. This is the first genuine rise
of the Kicking Horse this season and
is very late comparatively.
The bones of a man killed during
railroad construction have been unearthed by the erosion of the river bunk
about a mile east of Palliser. Homeless, probably, in life; in death his narrow home taken away and bis bones
borne out on tho tide. Oh! How transitory is life, aye, eten in death is it
so, for "these bones must rise again.*
A gentleman bus been here selecting
a location for electric power works.
He says there is enough power in the
Kicking Horse to supply the whole of
America with light. He expects to
transmitelectriclightto Golden. There
is need of light, essentially and iu the
abstract, at Golden.
Though not generally known yet it
is a fact that there is quite a large
area of agricultural Iand in the bottoms
and on tho benches in tbis vicinity.
Guests at the Hotel de Bunk for tbe
week were as follows : J Watson. Jack
McMullen, J Wrong, John Crummie,
Scottie the Piper, Albert Keos, Geo

FRIDAY. May 17, 1901.
Too outlook for business in British
I'ul umbia at present is most encouraging. The number ot enterprises under
way points to prosperity of enduring
magnitude. Smelters are about to be
erected iu several localities, railroads
are to bo built that will nol only bene'
fit mining men but open up vast tracts
ot arable lund lo settlers, and the Gov
cru.uo.it ot the Provineo aro about to
taku steps to encourage tl.e pulp Wood
industry. We are progressing slowly
but surely iu the development ot our
natural resources and iu these we bave
tho assurance of permanence and sts
bility. We need not fear periods ot
depression so long as Nature continues
to vield ber harvest ot wealth.
In Canada, everything points to a
continuance ot the piosperity which
has marked tbe past few years. The
most casusl rendsr of the publio prints
must have observed that tbe organization of new companies and the* increase
in tbe capital of old-established concerns still continue. The great enterprises at Sidney and at Sault Ste.
Marie, witb which the names of Mr.
Mr. Whitney and Mr. Clergueare connected, are proceeding lapidly to realize the largest expectations that have
been formed respecting thein. Indeed,
if anyone, a few years ago, had pre
dieted the early establishment ot entei
prises in Canada capitalized at over the
hundred-million mark he would have
been regarded as a day-dreamer with a
particularly exuberant imagination,
But events would have thoroughly,
justified his prognostications. With
these enterprises may be classed aleo
such concerns as the Nova Scotia Steel
Company aud the Crow's Nest Pass
Coal Company, forming five centres ot
widely-separated activity, each in its
measure adding to the wealth and pop.
ulation of the Dominion. None of them
has as yet reached even tbe normal
stage of its development, but wheu
they do they will materially revolution
ize tbe localities in which tbey are
situated. A great many rumors have
appeared in regard to change of coutrol
in tbese enterprises, but so long as
they ate operated it ..takes but l'ttle
difference to us as Canadians who sup
plies tbe funds that make the wheels
go round. t.o loug as tbey are worked
by the industry and skill ot residents
of this country, and there is no possi-
, bility of depriving us oft hat advantage
tbe country gets tlio lion's share of
the benefit. Foreign capital invested
iu Canada cannot earu its dividends
without adding to tbe wealth ot the
country uud to its population, und
when this process p,o._ on foi
loug enough ihere will be in time
no ls.uk ot Canadian capital (or
promising enterprises. It.ds.ed one ol
the signs uf the times is the lug*,
amount of Canadian ca|.ital that bus
been forthcoming tor investment iu a
great variety ot industries.

Study In tbi. Province.
The Summer School of Mines, iu
connection witb McGill University,
Montreal, was fouuded a tew yeara
ago for the purpose of giving a post
graduate to those of its students who
hare taken tho mining and engineering
course at the University. This finishing course by the Summer School are
now looked upon as very important in
completing the education of mining
engineers and in giving, out'embryo
exports a practical knowledge of mines
and mining by a course of study in
the mining districts of Canada. This
year the Summ.r School claei, num
boring 25, with four instructors, will
spend a couple ot months in the min<
districts ot British Columbia. Ths
partv left Montreal May 1st, and after
a brief istay. at Banff, the guests of tbe
C.P.R., they proceeded to the coast to
inspect the coal mines on Vancouver
Island and copper mines at Texada,
From the coast the class will go to the
Slocan where a thorough study of the
silver lead ores and the formations in
which they occur will be made. The
free milling gold ores of Nelson and
Ymir districts will ntxt be examined.
The party will make an extended stay
In Rossland where the copper gold orts
and peculiar formations of Red Mountain will be subjects of careful study
and on which a course of - lecture will
be given.
From this point the C. P. R. smelter
at Trail will be visited and llie stud
ems will be afforded an opportunity of
studying the treatment of many kinds
of ore as accomplished st a modern
smelter. A short trip through the
boundary will be made alter Which
the party will return east via the
Crow's Nest Pass, breaking their
journey at Fernie to examine the coal
mines at tbat point. Oil arriving at
Montreal the balance of the summer
will be devoted to a careful study ot
the notes and observations made on
the trip and a - complete course of lectures on the practical > working of
mines will finish the education ot a
quarter of a hundred expert mining
men. With the party are several
British Columbians among whom is
noted Norman .Parlee, of Rossland
The visit of this large purty is made
at lho solicitation ot the C. P. R
which placed a.pecialcar at the dis
posnl of the.class, and is affording tl.e
instructors evors facility toward making the tour' and their work successful. Its officials never miss an opportunity for advertising and making
known the mineral wealth of the pro
vine*, and this is one of the many
methods adopted by the company,
This policy will undoubtedly result in
lasting benefit to British Columbia, fer
wherever a member of thia graduating
class locates there will be found a
walking and speaking advertisement
of British Columbia and its mines.

There ��re in China a considerable
number who have, found congenial
occupation since the out break, berating
mittionarici and depreciating their
work. I have before me a little book
in whioh thst** obargea are collected
and eixwaied, by * gentleman who
live* in Shanghai. According to their
critic, these missionaries an selfish,
living ii luxury, without tact, and
are vindictive. They over estimate
th* nnmber of their convert*, who,
they aay, profess conversion simply
for the loaves and fishes. They lean
on ths gun boat for protection, and in
an objections! manner, thruat an objectionable religion down the throats
of the Chinese, Now these charge*
and many more can be- answered, and
Miwured fully, without asoribing infallibility to missionarica auy mor*
than to other men.
But whilat their enemies ara ab oc
copied, what are the missionaries
doing? Well, 188 ot them have laid
down their lives, and, now wealing
tbe martyrs orown, are doing whatever the redeemed are doing before the
Throne. Of the remainder- who es*
caped, seme came to the heme land,
but the- majority are at tha coast,
standing,**, the doot ready to re**enter
���nd resume work aa soon as par mission
is given. And in ths meantime what?.
I) The women have held a conference ia
Shanghai, presided over by Lady Blake,
the wife of the Governor of Hong Kong
in whioh they prayed for the women
of China, diaoussed their needs, and
how best to relieve them. Tne male
missionaries also, held conferences for
prayer and Bible study-that they (the
taissionsrles) might be themselves
spiritually quickened; and thereby
China blessed. As opportunity offers,
they send letten and messages of
sympathy and encouragement to the
scattered and persecuted cou verts who
remain'. Is that selfish or vindictive?
Others ara employed gathering up,
loviuglv, the story of the massacres,
the heroic courage and loyalty to Jesus
Christ, of missionaries and converts
alike, und themany interventions of
God's hand, delivering from death
those whose time had not come. It is

9th. Collins took a drink of gin and
purchased a revolver for ff) from witness. He hired a rig to ko to Peterborough nnd get his stuff, as he was
coining back that day to paint the
hotel. Collins told witness he was
going to have Dando arrested for cut-
tine him over the oye. The revolver
produced iu court was identified br
witness as the one sold. When the
revolver was produced in court ns an
exhibit the judge ordered it unloaded
and three cartiidgos and two empty
shells were removed from it and duly
Jchn E. Miller, sworn, told of the
drive to Peterboro that morning, nnd
told of over-hearing prisoner's final remark to Mr. Bales regarding seeing
him on prisoner's return from Peterboro. Not knowing Collins he could
not say he noticed anything unusual
in his manner and did not pay much
attention to him anyway.
Harry Munson was the next witness, who described Collins' behaviour
from the time he arrived in Peterboro
that morning until he left him at the
Delphine hotol. His evidence was as
follows: Seeing Collins nnd others
nligh'injr Irom a rig in front of my
store I went over from the Union
Hotel. (Here a plau of Peterboro was
produced and witness showed positions of the various places connected
with .he ci.su). On going in my place
I found Collins and Geo. Chambeilain
having nn altercation, Collins accusing
Chamberlain of having been with
Dando the night before. Collins was
flourishing a guu, like tho one produced here. Collins said he would shoot
Chamberlain, and showed mo that the
gun was loaded. The trouble was
ended by my telling Collins that Chum-
Iserlniu was not that kind ot a mnn.
Collins was not satisfied at first, but
ou my repeating it said. "If yon say
so, Harry, it's all right." I askel bim
for ihe gun but be refused, saying he
wonld take care of It himself and put
it in his pocket. He said he wanted
satisfaction and I advised him to go
Scoville's office and swear out a war
raul. On tlie way to Scoville's, Skelton called prisoner over and had a talk
with him. I did not ler what was
snid. It lasted about tive minntes.
When he got to Scoville's he was dressed all but coat and vest. Collins
asked for a warrant to arrest Dando.
Scovills made no answer, I asked for
s ne for wrecking the house. I act for
owners; owners nre Brewster k Craig.
Scoville told me I had better see McDonald, the lawyer, and come back in
an hour, He paid no attention to Col-
At this point the judge askedMr. Daly
if Scoville was to lie called, as he
thought he should explain this strange
Mr. Daly said he had wanted him
subpeonaed but it hud not been done,
and that it was impossible to get him
Witness resuming said : I thsn told
Collins thnt we had better go to
Windermere and he said no; he had
been to Athalmer nnd could uet no
satisfaction there We started for my
s ore. I asked him repeatedly for the
msn but he would not give it np. 0| ���
po-ite the back door of the Delphine

cross examined by Mr. O'Brien, said
s'ollissswas sobrr when he-saw him first.
Never ssw him take' a drink, Hs
..iwined exoited I di I not think him
capable of taking care ofthe gun. I
was afraid for my own safety. His
charging Chamberlain with being at
tlte house showed he was unsettled.
He was muoh more excited after Soo*
ville refused to Issue lha warrant. I
saw the room where Collins slept. The
floor was covered with blood and broken gluts. There wns a piece of a beer
hostle about 4 in. long nn floor. Knew
Dando for two years, He was quarrelsome when drunk.
Win, Alexander Skelton, sworn, told
of conversation l.e had with Collins on
the morning of Oct. 9th I asked him
how he had fared the night before, l.e
replied, "Not too bad." Prisoner said
he was going to Scoville's for a warrant and If he did not get it hnd means
to satisfy himsolt, and pulled * gun
o.t of his pocket. Then he and Munson went towards Scoville's office.
Prisoner was in nn excited condition
but witness was not prepared to say he
wss capable of looking after himself.
On being pressed by Mr. Daly to mention anything to lead him to express
the above opinion hs said he appeared
back door, and after asking for Ihe
proprietors of the hotel und for Dando,
saying, after he was told they had no
knowledge of Dando's whereabouts,
11 will snoot that s ��� of a b ��� ss sure
aa my name is Collins." After leaving the bar Collins went upstairs, and
judging by tbe sound uf his steps went
to the room occupied by Dando, A
pistol shot followed and thtn a scuffling which crossed the floor towards
the position occupied bv the bed on
whioh Dsndo's body was found. There
then was a second shot followed by
the fall of a body on tha bed, and Col.
line, his fsce covered with blood, came
down stairs saying he had bsen shot
by Dando. Collins went but and the
witnesses went upstairs, fiusling Dan
do's body lying on the bed, about five
feet from tbe top of the stairs, witb
ths clothing on firs around the edge of
one ot the two bullet holes whioh were
found. The arrest of Collins and his
subsequent dazed condition were described by all those who saw him afier
his arrest.
The evidence of W. Colton this point
being much in favor ot the prisoner's
insanity. Mr. Colson was special constable iu oharge of prisoner on his way
to Golden and he epent over three days
with him and therefore had a good
chance to know as much'as anyone of
his condition.

E. C. Burtou, * Crown witness, not
being preseut, Mr. Daly asked that
Burton's evidence at the preliminary
hearing be accepted, but Mr. O'Brien
objected and his objection wss sustained. The importance ef thia witness may bs judged by the foot that
Quinlivan snore that Burton looked
out ol a door into the room in which
the body was lying while Quinlivan
was turning it over.
Dr. Taylor was colled. He had
visited the prisoner while at the jail
bnt oould not give any positive opinion at to prisoner's mental oondition,
Mr. O'Brien announce! that no witnesses would be oalled for' the defense.
Mr. Daly then requeeted the judge
to submit to the jury the question of
the prisoner's sanity nt the present
timo, Ths section nnder whioh this
procedtice was sdopted was read snd
his lordship gladly assented to the
request. The jury wns sworu on this
question and court adjourned till IS

After the adjournment the jury was
addressed by T, O'Brien for defense.
Mr. O'Brien asked the jury to find his
ollsnt sane on the evidence of Dr.
Taylor, who testified a* to hit recovery
from his sickness in the jell.
Briefly, Mr. Daly's tummingup wae
that the prisoner's action at .time of
shooting were those of a rational being.
His lordship then charged the jury,
going very duly into all tbe evidence
which had any bearing on the mental
condition of the prisoner, end also read
tbe definition of insanity. The jury
retired to consider the qnestion et the
prisonet's sanity, and the next cast
Wit called.
Chamberlain, who ha* betn out on
bail, was present in the court roomand
took his place in the dock.
Following is the jury: D Morgan, J
Chamberlain, H Howell, W Mclntosb,
Henry Smith, J McHattie, J Nelson,
J Jardine, J Morgan, W Avery, J
Connor, W J Gould. Mr. Daly address* 1 them, and was proceeding to
call his flrst witness when it wa* an
nounced that the jury in the Collins
caae had agree on the question ofthe
sanity of tbe prisoner. They w
thereupon summoned and answered
that they found the prisoner sane.
They were then placed in the ens'
tody of the sheriff to attend at 10
o'olook Friday morning.
Proceeding with the Chamberlain
ease, the evidence ot Jas MoKay, Jaa
Stoddard and J A Banga was taken,
and when Mr. Harvey elicited the fact
from Mr, Bangs that there was no one
who oould ewear that tbe animal in
question waa covered by mortgage pro-
duesd between MoKay and HE Forster,
his lordship Instructed the jury to find
the prisoner not guilty, whioh wu

II Pressed Herbs,
On the court being opened on Fide;
morning, Mr T. O'Brien addressed tbe
jury on behalf of the prisoner. The
pith of Mr O'Brien'��� plea wai that tbe
prisoner', mind was deranged at the
time ot the shooting. ' He spoke for an
hour and brought out the fact* tn tb*
prisoner'* favor vary clearly and elo
Mr. Daly also spoke for an hour and
labored to show the jury' that th* plea
of insanity was not confirmed by evidence and pointed out word* and notion* of the prisoner's wbioh were
those of * rational person.
TheHon. Chief Jmtice, in hi* charge
to the jury, called, attention to aome of
the statements made by counsel for defence that wore not supported by evidence. The judge.was very careful
to refrain from expressing an opinion,
leaving that entirely to the jury. The
judge deprecated the practise of work-
ins on tbe sympathy of the jurymen,
nnd cautioned the jury from being influenced by any emotion on one aid* or
the other.
At 3 p.m. jury inCollinacasebrought

prisoner guilty of murder Arthur Dando
but in consideration ol provocation h.
received we reocommend Mm to mercy
