C.   H.   PARSON,  Meager.
As matter* stand it is unwise for ns
to say muoh about the present Cabinet
crisis. The regret ie that it has occurred. The Government were doing good
work and maintaining th* confidence
oi the public, ant it ia a thousand
pitiee that any thing ahould have arisen
to enate th* pr*a*nt difficulty. A
meeting oi th* party will be held at
Viotoria on the 26th Inst when the
matter will be iully disousseil.and it is
to bs hoped that some mean* will be
found ol overcoming th* present di:
oulty. W* belive th* whole trouble
haa arisen as the result oi deliberate
platting oa the part oi th* Coast politician* who wen associated with th*
former Turner party, and who wonld
���tick at nothing to one* again obtain
control oi th* rein* ot power. Premier
Semlin I* too weak a man te combat
such Influence., and Jo* Martin waa
the one man la the Cabinet whom
these corrupt interests had to {ear.
Henoe th* necessity oi scheming to get
rid ol him. Tbe World states that
whsn the Hon. F. Carttr-Cotton wae
ia Oolden Mat week he received assurances ot support irom Hi- Wells in the
present "difficulty. We are in a posi
tion to Stat* that this assertion is absolutely false. The matter was not
even discussed, aud in any case Mr.
Welle would give no pledge to either
party till ha should hsar both sides oi
the dispute,
W* hav* to congratulate th* Government ot this Province on tbe excellent footing on which they have placed
tbe publio finances since taking oharge
oi th* Treasury. This was evidenced
th* othtr day in the floating oi the
new loan. The whole amount asked
lor by the government, ��840,000 hat
bttn floated in Loudon at a fraction
over Sill, tbe figurt at whioh th* minimum wa* Axed. This is moro than
on* per ctut higher than the belt price
obtainable tor any previous loan. The
rate ot Interest is 8 per cent. ' The
commission is only one per. cant.
against two per oent. previously paid
by Mr. Turner, a saving oi nearly
140,000 to the province, besides $2,000
whioh, had Mr. Turner remained in
the government wonld have been
ohsrged by hiin as personal expenses
in floating the loan,
had the Hon. Josoph Martin* Intimated
that he Intended to trace the attacks on
his character to tbeir sourco than the
���caudal* mongers Mopped aa ii they had
been ahot. It le wonderful to em, th.

Important Publio Works Arranged for.
An Arrangement Arrived At,
On Friday the Columbia River waa
again blocked at Fifteea Mile Creek
Landing by tbe breaking oi a boom,
throning the logs > right across the
river and blocking tke channel. Foreman Kidd, who waa ia charge of the
camp, went back and warned the
Duchess to take oue oi the sloughs
and this was done. Capt. Bacon had
been making his record run from Win*
dermere, aud had it spoiled by the
river being again blocked at tbe sorting boom, where the sie.mer had to
lie some time before the timber could
be cleared away. The passengers who
withsd to go by No. 1 thus missed

The Lumber Company having set up
an absolute right to tbs Fifteen Mils

thsy had cleared the landing, it was
pointed out to Mr. Jones :hai the Navigation Company had nlenred the lauding iu tho first piano, and it hnd been

district, in the interests of that portion
oi his constituency. During his stay
at Windermere Mr. Griffith, Government Agent, met Mr, Wells there, and
all arrangements were completed for

access to Toby and Horse thief Creeks.
Mr. Wells was much pleased with his
visit to Windermere district, having
met with a hearty reception among his
friends and supporters and the people
there are much pleased with the result
of his visit. When Mr. Wells does a
thing he does it thoroughly, and,
though thore has been some delay
about attention to the matters at
Windermere, when tlmy have been
attended to the most satisfactory arrangements have been made.
The order was given to the Athalmer sawmill for the cutting nnd sup.
ply of timber (or the bridge over the
Columbia river at Athalmer. This
work will be pushed on by day labor
under the foreinanship of D. Bales.
A Successful Shipment.

Kimpton speaks in high terms of the
liberal and satisfactory manner iu
which ho bns beon treated by the management of the Trail smelter. He Informs us that the smelter shows every
disposition to help out the small miner
as well as the big one, and he is confident that the new policy inaugurated
by the manager, Mr. Aldrldge, will be
a boon to the development of the raining industry of British Columbia. The

A Disappointing: Story.
This morning Frauk Berthiuame
returned Irom Tete Jaunt Cache and
-put in an appearance at the Eba office.
He atked us to wsrn people agai-.si
going to Tete Jaune Cache after placer
gold. He say. there is nothing there
to justify the inrush of tii. peoplo He
and others examined Swift Current
aud oould not get colours in more
than three out of every tin square
yards of dirt. "Why,-' said Frank
"you have a hundred timee better
prospects (or placer gold on Canyon
Creek, within five milet oi Ooldtn,
and on Cummins Cieek. Then sgain,
even i( there were gold on Swift Current, it would cost So to take ont every
dollar as the creek is filled witb im
mense boulders. Owing to one of his
horses getting entangled with a rope
in crossing one of the creeks near Kin
basket Lake it was drowned and Frank
loet his camp outfit.
Says the Edmonton Bulletin:���Interest in tke Tete Janne Cache gold
excitement, which hae beeu on the
wane of late, la being revived. Jack,
eon k McLaughlin have outfitted
afresh at Golden and gone back ; and
R. Mats left on Saturday (or Donald
to arrange tor the immediate return of
Jol. Hostyn and Sam Derr who were
sent in by hiin and some other Edmonton men last year. These men
brought out word which has oot yet
been made public but which is of sufficient importance to cause their immediate return.
Says tht Kamloops Standard :���Mr.
Harry Heath has just returned irom
the Tett Jaune Cache and Fort Georga
oountry where he has been prospecting
for the past tew mouthe. He started
in from Calgary with 18 horsss, and
������sports feed es fairly plentiful but the
country is very swampy. He found
gold in ono of the rivers not far from
Tete Jaune Cache and brought samples in with him. He intends writing

ers' Union of Rossland.
The following resolution was adopted at a meeting of Rossland Miners
Union, and The Ea a has been requested to publish il:
1 Whereas, on tht night ol Juno 20,
1899, thore was given iu tht city of
Rostland, B.C., wbat was known as a
publio banquet in honor of onr moet
worthy citizen, ex-Governor Mackintosh, ono who hss the welfare ot onr
city at heart and has done untold good
for tht community at large. But wo
regret witb shame that when the Hon.
Joseph Martiu ross to address the ban-
quettert that a good many oi those to-
called gentlemen ahould to tar forgat
themselves ss to jeer at ont whom
tbit Province might justly bo proud ot,
and by their action they dishonored
the guett of tht evening, disgraced
themselves, and dragged in the dust
the good namt our city and cltizant
have alwayt enjoyed for hospitality to
thost who mty havt mingled among
ut either at Invited guests or sojourning among us as (riende.
1 Therefore bt It retolvsd, that we,
the Rossland Minors' Union, No. 88,
W F. o( M., believe tbe Hon. Joseph
Martin, Attorney-General, wat grossly
insulted by a cor'.ain element who attended the said publio banquet, be-
cause of his triendly attitude towards
th'e eight-hour law passed ior the
benefit of metalliferous miners in this
Province. And we further believe such
a course was carefully planned by a
vast majority ol those who attended
the said public banquet, and the mo,
live for tuch it easily understood by
this union.
"Ba it (urthsr resolved we sdmlrt
the manly way in wbicb tht Hen
Joseph Mertln acquitted himself, and
wa condemn tuch outrageous iodscsney
by tht would-be aristocracy who attended the said public banquet. And
in (uture we pledge our support to the
Hon. Joseph Mattln and his colleagues,
who havt proved by thtlr noblt actt
that ther are the friends oi the messes
and not tbs classes, and we call upon
all honorable cltiaent to denounce thit
intuit offered to ont whom as a citizen
thia Province oi Brltlth Columbia
might well feel pround ot aud Canada
may well ailraite,"

Instant relief from the terrible itching
Mr. B. Nicholson, of the Manor House, Winnipeg, Man., relates the following startling facts: " For a long time I was troubled with Eczema on my ears, and for several
weeks I doctored with a prominent Winnipeg doctor to no avail. I was induced by a
friend who had been cured by Dr. Chase's Ointment to give it a trial. The first application gave instant relief, and before using all of one box I was completely cured, and have
had no return of the horrible disease."
For itching skin diseases Dr. Chase's Ointment has no equal in the whole world. It
stands alone as the one absolute cure for Eczema, Salt Rheum and Piles, and has never
failed to cure these torturing diseases.
If you are not convinced of the wonderful merit of Dr. Chase's Ointment by such
evidence as is published from time to time in this paper nothing short of a trial will convince you. Scores and thousands of skeptical ones have been convinced by being absolutely cured. You can rely absolutely on this great ointment to cure any case of Eczema,
Salt Rheum or Piles.   For sale by all dealers, or Edmanson, Bates & Co., Toronto.

Winnipeg, Jnly 12.���The town ol
Niukii. in tho sonlliwenteru portion of
the province, is at present grently ojoit-
etl over a niyitury whiuh came to light
there on Saturday last, ouly to be
plunged into deeper darkness the next
day. The faots of the oase briefly nre
as follows: Some five or six years ago
a well known farmer in the district by
the name of Thos. Warde sold the quarter seotion ol laud on which he had his
home for $400 iu cash, onme into Niu*
ga and almost immediately disppcared,
as completely as if Ihe onrth had swallowed him up. As lie hud always been
a man of stendy habits and was widely
known and popular in the district, his
sndden disappearance was a matter of
considerable speculation among his
friends, and many unavailing efforts
were made lo discover his whereabouts.
Finally a rumor was circulated to the
effect that he hud been seen iu the
States, uud as no other story was
brought forward, this was generally
accepted, although Wnrde's more intimate friends never placed much credence iu it. The mutter had remained
in this condition until lust Saturday,
when residents of Kinga who were digging iu a gravel pit about a mile ont of
tbat town came Bnddenly upon the
skeleton ol a man bnried in the gravel.
The head aud shonlders were all that
were at lint exposed, and the attention
of one of tho men who had previously
been very intimate with Wnrde was
drawn to the teeth which remained intact in tbe skull Two of those in the
fi-out of the upper jaw of the skeleton
were false and corresponded exactly
with thaw of .Warde- As taa hou wu.
late they decided to return to Ningn al
once aud report the matter to the mag*
lstnuw nnd to returu to tlm spot iu the
morning to complete tho excavation.
Tbey reported the matter to the magistrate and tbe news was at once spread
around tho town, where it created considerable exoitemeut Iu the morning
a largo number of the leading citizens
of the town tcoonipauied the two men
to tho pit where to their surprise and
amazement .very vestage of the skeleton had disappeared. The theory
around the town aud one whioh finds
pretty general credence, that the same
man who pnt Warde out of tlio way
the first time is accountable for his sec*
ond disappearance aud several will go
so far as to state tbe direction iu whioh
their suspicions point.

Parmer.' Mutual Hall Inanranee
In response to an invitation to drop
'up some time and look over the affairs
of the ManitoU Farmers' Mutual Hail
Insurance .oompany, 508 Molntyre
block, a Telegram reporter recently
visited tbe offices of the association.
He found the management and clerks
busily engaged conducting the business
aud enrolling a large number of applt*
cations which they are daily receiving
from all parts of Ibe province.
"How is business." asked the reporter.
"Business Is good," they replied;
"iu foot, we are doing a phenomenal
amount ot business tar a new oompany.
We hare issued over two thousand policies, giving onr members insurance for
two million dollars."
The company has agents in every
inuuiaipality in the province, and certainly do a large business as they keep
three olerks busy recording policies. It
is a pleasure to note that tbere is at
least oue coinpnuy iu this province
which is hustling uud being largely
patronized by the farmers ot this province, as hall insurance shonld he
sought after by every farmer rnising a
bushel ot wheat. The company is nnder the management of E. A. Taylor,
who has had years of experience In the
mutual hail insurance business, and
tbere is uo reason why this company
cannot give the farmers insurance at
aotoal cost. The plau adopted by tbis
comnany is such that every farmer who
insured his orop is certain that he will
get bis money In case ot loss. The
company's books are open far inspection to any and all of its members.

while nowaduvB a hopper goes tearing,
madly along the pike, scaring tbe pedestrians, horses and moles that may bap-

Kansas the "Grasshopper State;" n

Area of Some Former Speaker*.
When elected speaker yeurs ago, Ga-
luaba A. Grow, who Is still living and
a member of congress, was bnt 88.
James G. Blaine was 89 when he was
first called to tbe chair. Thomas B.
Reed was 60 when he was selected for
the first time, and Mr. Carlisle was 48.
Otbera have been older and a few
younger, but ns a general thing tbe
speakers have been chosen from men
who are in tbe prime of life, partly because they are compelled to undergo a
great strain at times and partly because
tbe men must be legislators who have
bad long experience on tbe floor und
are thoroughly acquainted with parliamentary practice.���Cincinnati Commercial Tribnne.

Smooth Forehead* Ar* Rare,
A pretty forehead Is a possession to
value, as much of the- character of the face
depends upon tc. ' Any forehead must and
can bo free from irregularities and wrinkles to bo attractive. Care should be taken
In youth to avoid tho straight long lines
on tho forehead which nro brought on by
elevating the eyebrows. Look nt the middle aged faces you meet each day and mark
tho prevalunco of those lines just over the
temples. In nine cases out of ten the re*
malnder of the foce will bo smooth nnd
youthful, but those lines tell tho talo of
age, This lifting of the eyebrows is a
senseless trick, which la thought to give
expression to tho face. It Is on a levol
with tho many other so called tricks of expression, really nothing moro than contortions of the facial muscles. It ts rare to
find a woman who can carry on a conversation with au even countenance and
without nods and wags of the bead.
