Horses Cached.
For two years or more horses have
been stolen in this district. During
this season at least twenty-five in the
vicinity of Greenwood have disappeared.
There were (suspicious but no proof. As
a rule it cost inoro to tecovur u horse
than he was worth, hence no active
steps were taken.
Recently, however, the boldness of
the giuue and the frequency of its occurrence led to eertlan information being
given to the Washington state authorities, which led, in turn, to the gang being rounded up near Obesaw, on Myers
creek, a few miles-within the U. S, border. A cache of horses variously stated
in number from 100 to l-id was discovered, and 26 arrests were made.
Among those implicated and in custody
are, it is understood, at least reported,
several boys Who belong to respected
families in the Vicinity of Midway, The
others are all residents of Coiville reservation and mainly half breeds. They are
at present in Oro and Republic in jail.
The foregoing particular's are not absolutely authenticated, but are currently reported. It was also rumored on the
street that one of the fl. C. members
had been shot last night in attempting
to escape from jail at Republic,

over a year ago would have imagined
that in the event of a change of govern- j
meat; an administration composed as
it is would have been formed.
The failure of the present government;
is not so much that it lacked ability or
possibly administrative "talent, but that,
it lacked political experience and cubes- j
iveness, and above all the sympathy and
co-operation of the people of theprovince.
At no time since its installation has it I
had    their  unreserved confidence and |
support.   Judgment and good will were
suspended.     Practicallj  speaking, the
present government was not the choice
of the people.    In  the  last election it;
was  the old government that lost and !
not the Opposition that won.   No great
sorrow will therefore be expressed if the
present government should go to pieces.
What the people want is an administration composed of the members of either
party, or a coalition of the members of
both,   in  which they can have confidence���one with a stable and definite
policy of development.   They have had

Tho most engrossing topic of discussion at the present time throughout the
Province is the political crisis at, Victoria, whichj in sonic respects, is without a
parallel in the history of the Provinces.
To any one familiar with the character,
temperament and personal ambitions of
the dominant factors in the Cabinet,
the recent split conies as no Bufprise.
Il, perhaps; came a little sootier than
was expected; but that sooner or later
it would come was inevitable. The
Headman's Island dispute was undoubtedly the immediate cause of
lure; but that was only a local symptom
Of the disease. The body politic was
full of ngly "humors," and only rc-
i;iiired time to exhibit tbemselveB in
s-i.une more or less violent and unsightly
way. The Cabinet is, and always was
lines its creation, a combination of op-

ti'ical engineering has developed to Such
an extent that ihe production of cO'p'per
may not fefiep pace with the future de-
riinnd of this growing Industry. It was
therefore thought, that a syndicate
which could control the mines, could
ccffitrol their production and its price.
The principal thing to avoid ^'o as to escape the fate of the French syndicate, is
the stimulation of the production of Copper. This is to tfeoone by getting all
the great producers in the syndicate,
and regulate the price of the 'fuetal by
regulating its Output,
It-appears that this nas not yet  been
accomplished.     There   are   not a  few-
great copper producers which,  thus  far
have held back and shown no desire  ;o
enter it.   They may never enter  it.    If
they should not it is apparanl tirey nilfy
become   a disturbing element for the
syndicate todeal with���asort ofagad-lly
upon the body corporate, stinging  it   at
most unexpected times and places,    lie
this as it may, we are assured of several
very important things:    The price of
copper has made a long advanced step IS
the nip- Since the syndicate was organized;  it r;
has   reached   over   19 cents iind nhw|:|
stands at 18; there is no indication that \ 'i
it will lifeline in price in the near fu-! ^5
tare and that the Parrot, a meinbW of jB WlNES &n& MQJU0JS&
the syndicate, has shut. down.    It is ; ��
left for the on-looker to guess  wfiy.   It if
may be to make repairs ; it  may  be to
curtail the production of the metal.,

A Deck of Cards.
A- private soldier by the name of Richard Doe was taken before a magistrate
for playing cards during the divine service. It appears that a sergeant commanded the soldiers at the church, and
when the parson had read the prayers,
he took the text. Those who had a
Bible took it out, but this soldier had
neither Bible nor common prayer book,
but pulling out a pack of cards spread
them out before him. He just looked at
one curd and then another. The sergeant of the company saw him, and
said: "Richard put up the cards; this
is no place for them."
''Never mind that," said Richard.
When the service was over, the constable, took Richard before the mayor.
"Well,!1 says the mayor, ''what have
you brought the soldier here for?"
"For playing cards in church."
"Well, soldier, what have you to say
(or yourself?"
"Much sir, I hope."
"Very good, if not I will punish you
more than ever man was punished."
"I have been," said the soldier,
"about six weeks on the march. I have
(wither bible nor common prayer book.
I have nothing but a pack of cards and
I'll satisfy your worship of the purity
of my intentions." And, spreading the
cards before the mayor he began with
the ace: "When I Bee the ace it reminds me that there is but one God.
When I see the deuce it reminds me of
Father and Son. When I see the tray,
it reminds me of Father, Son and Holy-
Ghost. When I see the four Bpot it reminds me of the four ovangelists, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. When I
meet the five, it reminds me of the five
wise virgins who trimmed their lamps
���there were ten, but five were wise and
five were foolish and were shut out.
When I see the six it reminds me that
in six days the Lord made heaven and
earth. When I see the seven it reminds
me that on the Beventh day He rested
from tlie great work He had Created,
and hallowed it. When I See the eight
it reminds me of the eight righteous
persons that were saved when God" destroyed the world, viz i 'Noah and his
wife and his three sons and their wives.
When I see the nine it reminds me of
the nine lepers that were cleansed by
our Saviour j there were nine out of ten
who never returned thanks. When I
Bee the ten it reminds me of the ten
commandments that God handed down
to Moses on the table of Stone. When
I see the king, it reminds me of the
King of heaven, which is God Almighty.
When I see the queen, it remintJs me of
the Queen of Sheba, Who visited Solomon, for she was as wise a woman as he
was a man. She brought with her fifty
hoys and fifty girls, all dressed in boys'
apparel, for King Solomon to tell which
were boys and which were girls. King
Solomon sent for" water for them to
wash; the girls washed to the elbows
etnd the boys to the wrists, so King Solomon told by that:"
"Well," said the mayor, you have
given a good description of all the Cards
but one.''
"What is that?"'
"The knave," said the mayOr;
"I will give your honor a description
of that, too, if you will not be angry."
"I will not, said the mayor; "if you
do not term nie the knave."
"Well," said the soldier, "the greatest knave that I know of is the Constable who brought me here."
"I do not know," said the mayor, "if
he is the greatest knave, but I know he
Is the greatest fool."
"When I count the spots' hi a pack of
cards, I find there are three hundred and
sixty-five, as many as tlieer days hi the
year. When I count the number of
Cards in a pa!ck, I find there are fifty��two,
the number of weeks' in ii year; and I
find four suits, the number of Weeks in
a month. I find there are twelve picture cards in a pack, representing the
number of monthB in a year; and on
counting the tricks I find thirteen, the
number of weeks in a quarter. So, you
see, a pack of cards serves for a Bible,
almanac and common prayer book.'1
gan says the Greenwood men ar? very
much all right and he speaks in. fri^h
terms of the oourtesy and hospitality
extended to hiin during his recent visit.
The fact that Mr, Cregan's entries were
successful in the Greenwood sports,
gave that gentleman added pleasure,
but he. seemed to think more of his reception than of his own good fortune.���

Provincial Secretary's Office,
Victoria, July 3,18��9.
Dear Mr. Martin,���Yours of the 1st
reached me this p. m. In it you say
you think it would be more satisfactory
if I would put in writing the ground upon which I asked you to resign your
seat in my government.
I think I mentioned your absence
from your office.
The discussion of executive matters
outside of the council and to parties not
of the council.
' Your speech at the Rossland banquet
in which you threatened that an appropriation should not be expended
because some of those present had offended you.        Yours respectfully,
(Signed) C, A. SEMLIN.
Hon, Mr. Martin replied at length as
July 5,1899.
Hon, C. A. Semlin, Premier:
Dear Mr, Semlin,���-Your letter of the
3d instant, in which you give your reasons for requesting me to resign, duly
received i
The first reason is my absence from
office. Allow me to point out that this
is the first occasion .in which you have
found fault with me for this, although 1
have from the very first attended to my
private practice/and it has been understood that I should do so. It has* I understand, not been considered in the
past, that the attorney-general for the
time being should give up his practice,
and if such a rule were made it would, I
think; be considered by all that it
would be impossible to obtain the services of a competent lawyer to act as
attorney-general. Allow me to say,
however,' that my department is in first-
class shape, and I am perfectly willing
to have its present state compared with
that of any other department of the government. You are quite aware that
that canflot be taid of your departmental management, If in your opinion the
failure to manage a department is a
reason why a member of the government should resign his position, then I
am surprised that you did not resign
from the government when it became
evident to everyone that yott had entirely failed to administer properly the department of lands and works, and you
had to admit this by consenting tO a
transfer to the department of provincial
secretary. This transfer took place, as
you are well aware; for no othef reason
except that you were utterly Unfit to administer the department of lands and
works: The matters in that department had gone into such a condition
that the members' of the government
were unwilling to' take any fu/ther responsibility with regard to it; dnless
you gave it up.
Your next reason is! that I baive discussed executive matters outside of the'
council And to parties not of the council. This charge hOs nO truth in it
whatever, and I wo'uld be glad if you"
would furnish prfrtieuhfrs of any Birch
discussion; I think I am a#are; however, what you refer to. I fancy it is
the dlscUssiOri which occurred when the
Vancouver delegation' appeared before
the government With regard1 to Dead-
man's Island; What I did then was to
inforiri the delegation that th'e statements made at the mooting ftifd prior
thereto by the lion. Mr. Cotton were
incorteCt and that hi' was simply ex;i
pressing hia own opinion; instodd of the
opinion of the govornufent. He undertook to speak in the name of the government You' will remember that in
this connection Mr; Cotton telegraphed
Mayor Garden that the government had
decided to determirie the question Of
title of Deadmart's Island before they
considered what disposition they would
make Of it. You are aware that the
government had never decided upon
any such policy, but in ordel to back up
his position* Mr. Cotton deliberately
falsified the records of the council to
amend the same and strike out from the
records a statement to the above effect,
as the same had never been agreed upon by the council, and .never should
have been in the records. Tt appears to
me that you would have been quite justified in asking for Mr. Cotton's dismissal upon the above grounds.
The last reason that you give ib that
at Rossland I threatened that an appropriation should not be expended because some persons present had offended me. \rou are awa;e that you have
never asked me for any explanation
with regard to the correctness of the re1
port in the newspapers of the Rossland
matter, and in asking for my resigna
tion upon this ground, you assume that
the newspaper reports were correct with
out calling upon me for an explanation.
This, it seems to me, shows that you are
hard up for a reason to ask for my resignation when you would fall back upon
one of this kind. I was probably indiscreet at Rossland, and I should have
been very happy to have given you a
full explanation of what occuired there
had you asked for the same, and' I feel
sure after hearing my explanation you
would have felt it was entirely out of
place to request my resignation on a
ground of that kind,
Now, Mr. fiemlin, having dealt with
the three reasons given by you for asking my resignation, I beg to repeat in
writing what I stated to you on Saturday���that I did not propose to resign my
position in the cabinet, and I charge
that the reasons given by you are only
pretences, and that you have been induced to ask for my resignation by Mr.
Cotton, that you and Mr. Cotton have
entered into a conspiracy to wreck the
present government and drive from it
all the Liberals, with the idea of forming a Conservative government.
I am informed and believe that you
have already negotiated with Mr. Helmcken anil Mr. JSiggihs with a view of
their entering a government of this
kind. I know that you have not consulted either Dr. McKeehnie or Mr.
Hume with regard to asking for my
resignation, This contemplated course
on the part of Mr, Cotton and yourself
is, in my opinion, a groBs outrage upon
the electors of the province. Dominion
party lines were expressly ignored by
the present government parties in the
last general election. While it appears
that there are in the present house a
majority of Conservatives, that' is a
mere accident) and they were not elected as such, For you, therefore, to attempt to form a government which
would depend for its support upon these
gentlemen who happen to be Conservatives would, it appears td me, entirely
nullify the vote which which took place
on July 9th last, I feel satisfied that
your attempt td carry Out a conspiracy
Of this nature will not meet with success, At any rate, you can depend upon
every effort being made by me to frustrate it, and I feel certain that the Conservatives of the province who voted for
the late Opposition will be entirely opposed to any sueh attempt. I have
urged you to call the supporters ot the
government in the house together in
caucus to consider the Headman's Island question, which has created such
an agitation in the city ,of Vancouver.
I think that course should still be adopted, and 1 think in addition that it is absolutely necessary How that our supporters should bo called together to determine whether your course in calling
for my resignation is in accordance with
their wishes. If it in, I am prepared at
once to resign, but I protest against
your right to ask for my resignation.-
You are, as a matter of fact, the premier of this province/ but you are well
aware Of the circumstances under which
you obtained that position: At a caucus which took place of gavernment supporters in Vancouver, Shortly after the
| formation of the government, it was' intended that the members should elect
the leader of the present government,
party. That caucus had been adjourned
for that express purpose; In the meantime yotr. had been called upon tO form
an administration; and had done so, as
I contended, in defiance of your obligations to your supporters. When the
caucus took place a motion approving of
your course was proposed and withdrawn,-as'it Could get no support. It
was intended then that a vote should be
taken as to who should be the leader of
the party. You, however, stated that
! it vo'u Were not confirmed in yottr position as premier yoif would resign from
the house; As at that time we had
only a majority of oite; w'e could not af-
ufford to lose a Single supporter; and
yoU Were; therefore; iri a position to'Compel us to aftcept your terms.,.
In doing so you Were distinctly informed by a riumber Of members present that they only agreed to retafrt you
as premier berj'.ufse. they were informed
j that the matter \vi\s Simply .allowed to
| stand until tlie party became strong
eilough to deal witli the question upon
its m'efits. You are, therefor/;, the premier of the province only by sufferance,
and in demanding my resignation you
do Co. command the majority of the supporters rif the government in the house.
If my statement upon this j.'oin? be correct; then; fhSteaif of me resigning from
the government ft is your duty to take
that step at once! IE you have any
doubt as to whether my statement is
correct or not tliSt doubt Cffn be dispelled by calling a^-aucus of 'he goveffi'"
meii't Supporters forthwith.
Your faithfully.

another 20 feet before starting to drift

nine feet. The last assay I obtained
gave astonishingly high values, viz. $80

time it reaches, the smelter until it, is
rent out in the form of matte. The
Boundary country will next be visited
liiul when this section has been provided for, the provincial mineralogist will
lake up his regular work. Mr, Robertson said to the Miner that about the
only complaint he had to make was the
size of the territory under his jurisdiction. "It has grown so large," said
Mr. Robertson, "and of course is rapidly growing still larger that it is utterly
Impossible for me to visit every cam]) of
