From the Brandon & Golden

directors of the Brandon it "Golden
Crown, arrived in tlie city by train
Monday afternoon, and with the local
directors held a meeting in the Hotel
Armstrong. It is understood that the
matters principally discussed were in
connection with the shipping of ore.
There are 2,000 tons on the dump and a
large body of good shipping ore blocked
out in the mine, which is now capable
of an output of 20,000 tons from work
already done. At present they are working in a crosscut from the 30(1 foot level.
The directors on Tuesday morning
drove up to Wellington camp to Inspect
the mine, and returned in the evening
highly pleased with their visit. They
left Wednesday afternoon for their respective homes.
In addition to tho Brandon & (iolden
Crown, there will be another shipping
mine in Wellington campas soon as shipping facilities are provided. Duncan
Mcintosh, managing director of the
Winnipeg mine says that as soon as cars
are available he will be able to Bhip a
carload of ore daily to the Trail smelter.
L. L, Patrick, superintendent of the
Poland China property, Myers Creek,
was in the city this week, along with
George B. Mecham, Montreal who has
a bond on the mine. Iu conversation
with a representative of the Minkii, Mr.
Patrick said that at Myers Creek, active
development wan being carried on in
connection with the Review, Poland
China, Crystal Butte, War Eagle,
Mountain Chief, Copper Queen and
Buckhorn. Mr. Patrick said that there
were fourteen men employed in connection with the Poland China. The company has started a shaft 200 feet west of
the old shaft, upon which considerable
work was done, higher up the hill.
This shaft is double compartment,
���H-jjx8 feet. He speaks highly of the
prospects of the camp.
No good can come to the individual,
or the mining camp, which he represents, from the exaggerated reports of
rich finds that are ao much in vogue at
this time. From the new districts and
the old ones now being revived, the
daily newspapers are bewildering with
statements of ores being found, which
run into the hundreds of dollars to the
ton. Experienced miners understand
that in a new property a very rich assay
usually represents a very small find,
both as to the assay test and the oro in
view, whereas the statements are so contrived as to convey the idea to the uninitiated that the ore is both rich and
abundant. For the good of the state,
and the industry as a whole, such reports should not he made. The truth is
good enough, and will always prove
more profitable.���Mining World.
One of the most important pieces of
mining news received here in years
came iu on Wednesday, when Hubert
Clark received a telegram from Victoria
to the effect that the lawsuit over the
Seattle claim up the North Fork, which
has been dragging through the court for
the laHt three years, had been settled in
his favor, and he is once more owner of
the property.���Grand Forks Miner.
Word comes from Montreal to the
effect that a company is being organized
there for the purpose of operating some
of the mining interests recently acquired
by the large stockholders of the Republic Consolidated company.
Papers of incorporation have already
been applied for under the name of the
Boundary-Republic Co., Ltd., with a
capital of fl,.100,000 in shares of f 1 each.
Of this 700,000 shares have been set for
the subscription of Republic stockholders at 30 cents per share.
The Boundary-Lardeau Mining Company, Eholt, capital f 1,500,000, has been
incorporated.
News of the last clean up of the Okanagan Free Gold Milling Company,  Ltd.,
at Oro, Washington, has been received.
The aggregate value was f.1,400.
A MINING STOCK CITY,
St. John, N. B., Will Soon he an Important
Investor.
W. S. Keith, now in St. John, N. B.,
in a letter to the editor of this paper,
has the following remarks to make,
which are of especial interest to readers:
"We in the West have generally
looked upon extreme Eastern Canada as
anything but a speculative community
as far as mines are concerned. Since
coining east I have been surprised to know
how greatly mistaken iu our ideas along
that line we have been. St..John, N.
1!., has become a great mining stock
city, many British Columbia companies
being largely represented there.
"Over 125,000 shares of Brandon and
(Iolden Crown stock is held in St. John,
and is highly thought of, as is its due.
Other properties iu which speculators of
New Brunswick have invested are Winnipeg, Kins Mining company, (ireenwood Crescent, Waturloo, old Ironsides,
B. C M. A M. Co., ami a few of the
McKinney stocks, as well lis many of
the Republic stocks.
" A few St. John investors have made
fair sized fortunes in three Colorado
mines, viz: Hold King, Bear Gulch and
American Tunnelling. Tin; stock of tbe
first now being worth about $3.00 per
share.
"Such successful speculations have
led many to put their money in legitimate companies in British Columbia
and no district is looked upon with more
favour than that surrounding Greenwood City.
" Within a short period of time it is
safe to prophesy that legitimate mining
promoters will be as able or even more
able to float properties in St. John than
in either Toronto or Montreal."
J. C. W. Daly, brother of Hon. T.
M. Daly of Kossland, accompanied him
to Greenwood, and spent a few days
this week in the city. Mr. Daly lias
been lor some time, a resident of Buffalo,
N, Y., but proposes settling iu Ibis
Province.

A New Test for Under-Ground
Workers,
To be Directed Against Chinese and
Japanese, in Order to Avoid Disallowance of Anti-Alien Act.
Victoria, Jan. 25.���(Special to the
Mi.vrr.) Clifford's motion censuring the
Government was defeated by the largest majority Government yet secured
this session, Tuesday's vote being nineteen to sixteen. The reason was that
Higgins was sick, and Martin purposely
absented himself, being unwilling to
vote against the bill he himself favored.
Prentice announced he would have supported tbe motion had the Government
not signified its intention of introducing
an amendment to Ihe Act. It is understood the latter's amendment will make
it possible for Americans to purchase
claims. Dr. McKeehnie, President of the
Council, is introducing another amendment to the Coal Miners' Regulation
Act, which he hopes will shut out tbe
Chinese and Japs without being exposed to disallowance. It makes it obligatory for all employees under-ground
lo be able to read and writ', English.
Harry Helmcken is introducing an
amendment to the Tramways Act,
which expressly forbids the employment of .laps and Chinese under a penalty of Iff) a day for each one
The Government now has over 3UU applications lor positions ou the contingent, while -Major Benson and Colonel
Gregory bave as many more. Twenty
men from Vuiir applied yesterday.

Washington and Idaho.    As a result  ol
representations to the Government at
Victoria as to the seriousness of the outbreak, active steps have been taken to
prevent its introduction into southern
British Columbia, and temporary regulations have been put in force ami arrangements made lor quarantine all
along the line.
The quarantine officers appointed are
as follows: VV. J. Astley, stationed at
Waneta;C. 11. Palmer, at Port Hill;

The new Imperial Hotel, which has
been in course of construction for some
time, is about completed and will be
open to the public in a day or two.
This new hotel, which contains three
stories and basement, will have forty-
four rooms, with sample rooms and
laundry in the basement. It will be
lighted with electric lights, and is carpeted and appointed with new furniture
throughout. The first floor contains
kitchen, pantry, dining-room, lobby and
office; bar-room, club-room, barber-shop
and baths; wash-room and lavatories.
The second story has twenty -two bedrooms, parlor and office; bathrooms and

are six feet in width, and a six foot staircase connects the different floors. The
proprietors, who are well known in connection with the old Imperial, now tht
Clarendon, have spared no pains nor ex ���
pense in providing a first class, convenient and commodious hotel, and will undoubtedly command a large share of the
public patrdnage.

A   STORMY
To Debate on the Speech From
the Throne.
Cotton's Reply to Martin���Eberts
Makes a Ringing Speech- Speaker
Forster's Rulings,
Victobia, Jan. 20.���(Special correspondence of the Mi.nkr.) Last night
witnessed the conclusion of the debate
arising out of the address, and Mr. Turner's  amendment  thereto.      Certainly
the spectacle presented by the members
of the Government throughout that debate was anything but edifying. They
���at dumb in their seats, while the speakers on the other side of the chamber
arraigned them for their pernicious legislation, and charged them with having
lost the confidence of the community.
True, on Wednesday night lion. Carter-
Cotton did vouchsafe a reply, but it was
only after being taunted with cowardice
and inability to meet his opponent's
statements' that he was drawn to bis
feet. The occasion furnished bini an
opportunity to score his late colleague
and political rival, Joe Martin, and lie
was not slow to take advantage of it.
It certainly was one of the ablest efforts
which the House has ever heard from
the member from Vancouver, and Joe
���at scowling on the back benches of the
Opposition row, while Cotton retaliated
for his speech of a few days previous.
The Finance Minister caustically referred to the Manitoba politician as one
who would rather reign in hull than
serve in Heaven, adding that he bad
been rejected at Ottawa, ejected from
Manitoba, aud cast into outer darkness
in Victoria,,. The Government members, of course, applauded rapturously,
forgetting in admiration of their new
found champion, that he was assailing
the man, who, hist session, safely piloted them through the breakers.
The speech of the week was undoubtedly that delivered last night by ex-At-
tornoy-lieniiral Eberts, A certain indolence of manner often mars the deliverance! of that gentleman, but once this is
shaken off there arc few men in lirilish
Columbia who can speak with greater
logic or force. His contribution to tne
debate last night was a ringing challenge to the Government, and was a
fine assault upon them and their policy.
In a number of matters upon which the
Government plumed themselves, ho
demonstrated that they were but following the policy of the late Government. Referring to the arrangement
made by the cabinet to give the C. & VV.
a cash subsidy in exchange for the land
grant between Robson and Penticton,
he said the late Government had made
the same offer. The Turner administration Lad offered to give the railway
company f-1,000 a mile in exchange for
the land grant, and an agreement
had been signed between the company
and the Government when the latter
went out of power. Ho agreed that
Boundary country should bave a representative in the legislature, hut did not
intend to discuss the matter as, until
the hill was brought down, it was
impossible to say what the boundaries
of the constituency would be.
- Mr. Eberts also referred in scathing
terms to the action of the administration in dismissing Messrs. Dick, Tolmie,
McBeth, and Gosnell. The latter be
���aid bad been dropped at a day's notice
lo make room   for a henchman, who
could not be elected iu Dewdney, and
who was rejected in Cowichan.
It was at the conclusion ot Mr.
Ebert's address that something happened, which shows unmistakably the
precarious condition in which the Government finds itself. A simple motion
for adjournment was made by Mr. Hel-
uicken, and was opposed by the premier, who said thai they would have to
go into night sittings, and have the debate finished as soon as possible. Mr.
Cotton said he had been in the House
ten years and had never seen the House
kept back by so much useless obstruction. The Opposition opposed the adjournment, Mr. Prentfce concuring in
their view, and the vote being taken
the motion was defeated by two of a majority, Mr. Prentice voting with the Opposition. Neither Mr. Martin nor Mr.
Higgins were in their places, Had they
been present the Government would
again have been defeated. It is quite
evdient that the Government depends
for it's life on the Speaker's vote, as Mr.
Prentice can no longer be relied upon.
And this brings up a matter which is
being widely discussed just now, namely, the extraordinary conduct of Thos.
Fnisler as speaker of the legislature.
Last session his rulings, and bis general attitude to the members were sulli-
ciently irksome to make him the least,
popular of the list of those who have occupied that dignified post. This year,
however, be seems to he going a step
further, and scolds aud lectures the
members continually. Not the least of
bis offences is bis persistence in taking
points of order on his own initiative,
and without having his attention drawn
to them from the Moor of the House.
Without wishing to speak disrespectfully of one who holds such an honorable post, it must be said he acts like a
buy with a new whip, which he never
tires of exercising on whosoever happens
to cross his path.
This disposition to meddle unnecessarily with the machinery of legislation
caused a scene in the House last night.
Speaker Forsler insisted on the speech
from the Throne being adopted or rejected as a whole, instead of clause by
clause. This did not meet with the
views of the Opposition, who claimed
that il was contrary to all precedent, A
noisy scene followed,  dining which Mr.
Pooley,  ex-president of   ihe   Council,
Stated that if the Speaker persisted in
bis resolve tin- Opposition would withdraw in a body as a protest against bis
unfairness. Mr. Eberts did not concur
in this suggestion, and ii was not carried out, lull Ihe occasion was not allowed to pass without Mr. Turner staling that though tbe Opposition was
compelled to submit to this tyranny,
they would cause their protest to go
abroad so thai it might be known that
for the first time in a legislature of the
Empire, a Speaker bad refused to accord protection to the minority.
To-night Martin speaks ir. Nanaimo,
where he will measure swords with  Dr.

KRUGER AND KOOTENAY,
As Illustrated by the Poet and Financier of
Mew Denver.
The following from the New Denver
Ledj;e, though better appreciated in Nelson, is reproduced here on account of its
intrinsic humorous merit:
Doomed Paul: "Jouby, sit mit me
mill I vil readt you mit der latest news."
[Jouby sits.]
Paul reads: "Nelson, Jan. 12. Her
vas von pig battle yesterday. Her pioneer brigade und der labor corps led
by Houston made a grandt attack on
der army of white bandts and cod-Iish
plue-ploods, und after many hours drove

Paul: "How you like dot, Jouby?

Paul:   "Vyso?"

Paul: 'Jouby, you must not pe so

Jouby:    "Vat for?"

Jast One Lone Laugh.
We have had hypnotists by the dozen,

week,   His entertainments are one long
laugh, as bus been said. Ridiculous situations, comical speeches, funny interludes, and surprising changes follow
each other in rapid succession until the
audience simply laughs until each one is j
forced to hold their sides. It is the
most humorous, the most astonishing,
the  most   bewildering   entertainment
that can be presented to the amusement
loving public. McEwan's demonstrations in hypnotism surpass all previous
revelations in this line, casting in the
shade all exhibitions given by any other
performer. He will appear at Miller's

THE BUSINESS OUTLOOK.
Reports from the eastern markets are
all confirmatory of the opinion that there
will be a sag in the mining business until the course of the war is determined.
Stocks are practically off the market,
and mining deals, with the exception of
a few properties, which are being placed
privately, are at a standstill. So far a��
the Boundary is concerned there are
two elements to determine activity in
the near future. One is the war. A
speedy and successful issue would loosen
up the market and bring in capital.
The other ia the dividend paying stage,
which we have about reached. As soon
aa the dozen prospective shippers are
paying dividends the district will experience an activity never before witnessed in the interior of B, O, The pay
roll, within an area of twelve miles,
will alone build up and maintain several
large towns.
THE SESSION.
It appears probable now that the Government at Victoria will weather the
session. As remarked last week, Jos,
lost his opportunity, and the sympathy
and support of many of his former admirers, in, first, allying himself with the
Dunsmuir's influence after formerly
waging war against it, and, again, in attacking the Government so fiercely on
what appeared to be peculiarly personal
considerations. He has shown himself
to be inconsistent in policy, and inspired by passion ; and no match in the
the game of politics for the wiles of the
Minister of Finance. Cotton in his reply likened Martin to Moloch, whose
voice was for war. Those who have
read the description in Milton's '"Paradise Lost" of the council of war held by
the lost angels in Hell will remember
bow aptly the pen-portrait of Moloch
therein contained applies. The Government, of course, is in constant danger of defeat, and held together by no
strong ties ol party allegiance, or mutual attraction, complications are liable to
arise at any time to shatter the combination. The rocks upon which they are
most likely to split are redistribution
and the estimates. In any event tbe
ordeal, with only one of a  majority,  is
bound to be a trying one. Already, at
the time of writing, there are on the
order paper notices of eighteen hills to
be introduced, eighteen resolutions to
be debated, and about the same number of questions to be asked. The Opposition is going to he extremely troublesome, if not successful, which goes to
show that the daily fare of politicians is
not all beer audi skittles.
A PECULIAR APPOINTMENT.
The Toronto World, whose particular
betenoiris the Ontario Government, has
unearthed a peculiar document which,
without some explanation, places the
late Hardy administration in a strange,
ifr.ota hazardou, positions. It appears
that Ilebert Edwin Irwin, was appointed as Clerk of Peace in the County of
York, in the room of one Thomas II.
Bull, on condition that he should pay
the latter the sum of If'JOO yearly out of
his salary and perquisites for live years,
or during his lifetime. In order to
make the agreement binding, the conditions of the contract were incorporated in Irwin's patent of office, which
the World prints verbatim et literatim.
The most interesting feature of this contract is that it apparently conies under
the ban of the Criminal Code, which
makes it an indictable offence to directly, or indirectly, sell or traffic in any
public, office; and the most remarkable
fact in connection with it is that the
Government should set out the terms of
the bargain on the face of the office patent, and that Sir Oliver Mowat, in the
name of Her Majesty, should seal the
bond, There is one precedent for this iu
the case of the Queen vs. Mercer, a good
many years ago, in which, however, the
Government of the day pleaded ignorance of the bargain. It was held to be
an illegal transaction, and a misdemeanor.
THE GROWING TIME.
The pet Liberal phrase, "the growing
time," has stirred up the Ottawa Citizen to find a few instances of growth.
Here is the result of its research :
The net debt of the Dominion bus increased $2,817,047 during the last fiscal
year, and at its close amounted to ifL'iili-,
273,440.
The average rate of interesi paid on
the gross debt bus risen in the same period from $8.10 In $3.14, and the not   rate
of Interest from $2,00 to $2,08.
Tin-debt  has grown, ami tin-  rule  of
interest increased, notwithstanding thai
tin- revenues of the year, $40,748,102,
were $0,180, 548,035, iu excess of those
of the previous year, ami Ion millions
greater than those of 1890,
The disbursements, ordinary and capital, have gono away beyond the half
century mark, being $51,542,085, as
against $45,334,281, in 1898, ami $44,090,-
388 in [890, when the high water mark
of a decade of Conservative administration was reached.
The interes t of the public debt has
grown. It was $352,882 greater last year
than in 18%.
It is, indeed, a growing time.

Those who talk about, the decadence
of the British Empire should consider
the spontaneous outburst of enthusiastic
patriotism evoked by Britain's peril in
the Transvaal. It means that in u critical war, and all wars nowadays are critical on account of the complications
which arise, that the public and private
resources of every colony and portion of
Her Majesty's dominion would he given
up in its defence. Nothinglike it has ever
been witnessed in the history of the
world.

ADOPTING A SYSTEM
For Carrying on the Work of
the Council.
That's What the Aldermen are Trying
to Do���All the Old Officials Re-appointed at Former Salaries.
All the members of the city council
were present at the meeting on Monday
night���His Worship, Mayor Hardy, in
the chair, and Aldermen Galloway, Bannerman, Sharpe, Cropley and Sullivan.
Several comunioations wereread. one
from John Robertson, architect, with
reference to the City Hall, and one from
A. Andrews, Winnipeg, respecting hell
for the City Hall, and one from A.
Campbell Reddie, re appointment of
Arthur M. Whiteside, Police Magistrate,
during the absence of Mr. Hallett. W.
G. Gaunce, the arbitrator of the city in
the alleyway dispute, wrote stating that
1. It. Jacobs, the arbitrator for the property owners, would not consent to any
of the gentlemen Suggested by the council as referee, and wanted Duncan Hoss.
After some discussion it was decided to
ask Judge Spinks to make tin: appointment.
The council then took up the matter
of the payment of bills and discussed it
at some length, with, a view to inaugurating a system. It was decided that all
accounts should be in by the first and
fifteeenth of each month, and paid on
the first and fifteenth of the month following. All the old .officials were an-
appointed at their former salaries, except W. S. Keith, whose partner, F. F.
Ketchum was appointed in his stead.
W. 10. Henton was appointed nuisance
inspector, as well as chief of the lire department. Mr. Edwards was appointed
caretaker of the cemetery at u salary of
$70 per month and the use of the buildings on tbe ground, il heiug understood
that be should devote his time to the
clearing up of the grounds, and all fees
and receipts should be turned into the
city.
The scavenger question occupied considerable lime und attention, the problem being how to compel the payment
of the fees, without loss to tin- city.
The City Solicitor was authorized lo
send out accounts to all delinquents.
The last year's contract with the Greenwood hospital was agnin confirmed.
The tender for printing wns left over, a
special committee being appointed to
look into the matter.
The following accounts were read and

THE   GREENWOOD   MINER.
UP ATTHE WEST FORK
Some Information About that
Promising Camp.
Criticisms Regarding the Government
Road and Bridge���Number of Men
on the Pay Roll.
Mr. McLeod returned last week from
a visit to the West Fork, and gave the
Miner some interesting particulars of
that country. The government road is
now three miles above West Fork, and
in his opinion is well constructed, but ia
severely criticized by the prospectors
and others as unnecessarily expensive.
The bridge over the West Fork ia still
unbuilt, and the river is crossed by fording or ferrying. It appears that construction has been delayed on account of
bridge stringers, which are coming from
the Coast. This is considered a piece of
folly from the fact that there is plenty of
line timber all about. The location of
the bridge is also objected to as not
being in the best place, and as being too
expensive. By its location the prospectors for the West Fork district have to
go a mile further than is necessary. If
tbe whole appropriation were properly
and economically expended the district
would bave been much better served.
This, Mr. McLeod says, is the feeling of
the people up there.
At this place there is a hotel kept by
John McKenzie, a blacksmith shop, a
store, and several prospectors' cabins.
There is considerable travel on the road.
A pack train jjoes from Rock Creek to
Beaverton. Mr. McLeod says there is a
fine strip of level country and a beautiful townsite ; and he thinks Beaverton
has a good prospect of becoming a centre.
Mr. McLeod visited the district for
the purpose of looking at some mining
properties, and saw the Empire and others, lie had excellent reports from the
Idaho, Washington, King Solomon, and
Carmi, all of which are working. About
forty-live men are engaged in developing those properties. Had the
wagon road been completed, machinery
would have been in operation on the
Idaho, Washington and Carmi. lie
said be saw as line galena ore there as
he ever saw in the Slocan district. The
ore deposits are large and give indications of being permanent. It was a
question of values as to how important
the district would become. The reports
he received were very favorable in this
respect.
Tbe lead furnace at the Trail smelter
has been put in blast, and will run
steadily from this time forward. It has
a stock of ore sufficient to keep it in operation for two or tbiee months independent of any new purchases. The
lead ores have been purchased from the
Slocan, Slocan Lake and East. Kootenay
districts. The furnace will add 51) to 75
to the number of men employed at the
plant. 	
B. C. COPPER CO.
Paul Johnson  is keeping  Greenwood  to the I
Front in the East.
The following is from the Boston News j
Bureau, of Jan. 9th.   Paul Johnson is
evidently  keeping   Greenwood   to  the:
front.
"Mr. Paul Johnson, for twenty-five!
years engaged as an expert in copper,
mining and smelting, is in Boston. Hu |
is now associated with the  British Co-j
lumbia Copper Mining Co., the shares
of which company are listed on thd Boston Stock Exchange,   Mr. Johnson says:
'The British Columbia mine is rapidly
approaching the producing stage. It
has copper-gold veins 180 feet in width,
its ores are practically self-fluxing, and
average at the lowest estimate five per
cent in copper, $l>.50 in gold, and two
ounces in silver, The gold and silver
values will pay the mining and smelting
charges.
'We have one shaft down 400 feet.
Stuping will begin In February. Our
smelter, which will treat D00 tons of ore
a day, is now Hearing completion, and
will cost $125,000, Tho company is employing 10 men, but the force will be increased to 250 by next summer. Railroad connections have recently been established.'
The British Columbia Copper Co. has
200,000 shares which were originally
sold at $10 per share. At the start 50,-
000 shares were reserved for construction expenses a portion of this stock
has since been sold. Practically all the
stock will have been sold by the time the
smelter is completed.
"When the mine wa.s Heated, 10,000
shares were sold in Boston. Mr. Paul
Bahcock and other Standard Oil men
have a considerable interest in the stock,
which is also owned quite largely in
London and Paris. Standard Oil holdings have since been increased "

At the urgent request of Lord Salisbury, Queen Victoria will in person
open Parliament on February 14th, the
first time she has done so since January 9.2, 1886, when she opened the Parliament to which Gladstone presented his
Irish home-rule bill. Tbe occasion will
be made one of extraordinary pomp and
display.
Sir Henry Erskine once quelled a riot
in Edinburgh when Mrs. Siddons was
playing to a crowded house in the largest theatre in the town. A surly fellow
in the pit refused to sit down, and a
howl went up from all around him. The
crowd was likely to do him and the
house a damage, when Sir Henry came
to the front of his box with the quiet
statement: "Pray excuse the gentlemen; don't you see that it is only a
tailor resting himself?" The man sat
down without further urging.
Sir James Sivewright, of Cape Town,
has turned over to the British government his|great estates, lying thirty miles
from Cape Town, to be used as a hospital and convalescents' home for the
army. Three different mansions, giving accommodation for nearly three hundred officers aud men, bave been provided. In addition, Sir James has
equipped and brought to South Africa,
at his own expense, two complete corps
of doctors and nurses, one of them remaining on duty in and about Cape
Town, while the other goes to the aid of
the wounded Boers.
General Buller was once in company
with Lord Sir Charles Beresford coming
down the Nile, and as their boat reached
the first cataract a sharp discussion arose
as to which was the proper channel to
take. The soldier advised one the sailor
the other, but in the end Buller's channel was followed, with perfect success.
"You see, I was right," the general exclaimed exultantly. "What of that?"
retorted Beresford ; "I knew it was the
right one, and I only recommended the
other because I knew you would oppose
whatever I said."
General Wauchope had been wounded
four times, thrice severely, before going
to South Africa. Shortly before In-
started for the Sudan last year he met
on a country road an old tinker, a character in bis way, whom he had known
nearly all his life. Said the itinerant:
"Eh, laird, I bear ye're guan aff tae tbe
wars ance mair. When wull ye e'er get
yer fill o' fechtin'?" The officer smiled
but made no reply. Tbe tinker went
on: "I'm thinkin' that'll be never,
laird! I'm jist the same niysel', sir; I
can ne'er get ma lill���but it's no fechtin';
it's whuskey."   The laird took the hint.
The pastor of the colored congregation was warming up to the climax
of his sermon, and his auditors were
waxing more and more excited. -'I
wahns yer, 0 my congregasbun 1" exclaimed the exhorter, "I wahns yer
against de sin uv crap-shootin'! I wahns
yer against de sins uv whisky-drinkin',
an' de sin uv chicken-stealin', an' I
wahns yer' my breddern, against de sin
uv melon-stealin'?" A devout worshiper in the rear of tbe church jumped to
his feet and snapped his lingers excitedly. "Whuffo does yer, my brudder,
r'ar up an' snap yo' fingers when I
speaks uv melon-stealin'? asked the
preacher, "Kazc yo' jes" minds me whar
I lef mah overcoat," replied tbe devout worshiper as he subsided into his
seat.
Among the prominent Englishmen
who have recently volunteered for service in the war against the Boers, are
tbe Duke of Marlborough,  who will fur
nish one hundred and fifty men and
horses; the Earl of Warwick, a rich
peer, who owns Warwick Castle and
other famous residences; the Earl of
Dudley, whose great fortune consists in
part of coal and iron mines; the Earl of
Lonsdale, who possesses nearly seventy
thousand acres of valuable land, and is
an intimate friend of the German emperor; and England's premier duke, tbe
Duke of Norfolk, who is postmaster-general, and by no means a young man (be
was born in 18-17). The Duke, of Norfolk's position in the cabinet, and bis
tremendous business, to say nothing of
his power as lay head of the Catholic
church in England, will probably prevent the acceptance of bis offer.

THE   GREENWOOD   MINER
' AN IMPORTANT CASE
The Rights of a Free Miner
in the Timber
On His Claim Determined in the County Court,���Judge Spinks Gives a Decision in His Eavor.
County Court was held Tuesday ot
this week in Mrs. Foreman's hull, Gov-
ernrnent street, His Honor judge Spinks
presiding, There were twenty-eight
cases on the docket, the greater pari, of
which were disposed of summarily.
The t:ase�� of special interest, were those
involving the right ol tbe miner to tin
use of tbe timber on his claim, of which
there were several. Only one, however, was tried, and as the case is likely
to be appealed, the others stand over
pending the result. The ease in nues-
tion was John Mulligan vs. Louis Blue,
and Adolph Fishfir, and John Lindsay
and Plnenix Lumber Co., in which the
defendants were sued for damages lor
cutting and carrying away timber, and
for trespassing on plaintiff's mineral
claim. II. 0. Shaw, of Hallett & Shaw,
appeared for the plaintiff, and J. 1'.
McLeod and A. S. Black for the defendants. J. Ki Brown, R, B, Kerr and W.
Myers-dray were present representing
other parties in tbe several allied suits.
The evidence went to show that the defendants hud gone on to the plaintiff's
mineral claim and bad cut a certain
number of trees, which were traced to
the mill. The real point of law involved was whether u owner of the
mineral claim could prevent the sawmill man from entering, cutting, and
carrying away timber. No evidence
was offered in defence the defendant's solicitor applying for a non-suit. 11 is
Honor gave the following written judgment: "The mine owner is entitled to
the timber on bis claim for milling purpose!.    Anyone who takes timber  fl	
his claim interferes with that right, anil
commits a trespass. The defendant has
cut and carried away from the plaintiff's
claim,      the      exact      quantity      the
plaintiff  cannot   show, hut he claims
over ill  trees,  and   the  defendant  does
not contradict that claim,"   His Honor
gave judgment for if In anil cutis, lie
expressed the opinion, also, that the
owner nl a mineral claim had not tin-
right to sell or dispose of ihe timber, 'ir
to use it for other than milling purposes.
BOUNDARY VS, VICTORIA.
Greenwood Team Wins the Game iu Kossland
Last Saturday.
The hockey game between the Victorias of Kossland anil the Bouudary
team last evening, resulted in a score of
two to nothing in favor of the latter team.
The game was played at the skating rink
in the presence of about 400 people. Tin-
victory was due to the superior combination play of the Boundary boys. The
home team played hard, and seemed determined from tbe outset to win. The
puck was in the vicinity of the Boundary
goal for most of the first ball'of the game,
and tbe Kossland team shot time and
again but could not get tbe puck past
MacPherson, the Boundary's clever
point. Those who were fortunate enough
to be in attendance saw what was the
cleanest and fastest game of hockey ever
played in Rossland, Although there
was plenty of elose cheeking, the boys
did not resort to unfair play, and consequently there were none  of the  partici
pants at any stage of the game decorating
the fence. However, there was a considerable offside, which seemed to be indulged in by the visitors more than by
the home learn. The teams lined up for
the game as follows :

they were fairly beaten.���Kossland

The boys were banqueted in tbe evening at Kossland, and on their return to
(ireenwood Monday night were again
entertained. The banquet took place at
the B. C. Hotel, and a merry evening
was spent.

Later news from Victoria states that
Clifford's motion of want of confidence on
account of the Alien Act of last session
was defeated, Higgins and Martin being out of the bouse. There was a warm
debate. Attorney-General Henderson
has given notice of an amendment, which
will remove some ol the objectional features. On* of the incidents was a passage at arms between Macl'herson, of
Vancouver, and Hall, of Victoria, which
took place iu the lobby. Hall threatened to chastise MacPherson for offensive
remarks concerning Mr. Turner, leader
of tba Opposition, in his speech. They
were separated before blows were struck.
On Monday 3 items on tbe order
paper were disposed of. These were
mainly resolutions and questions. Otherwise it was a quiet day. The Tribune's
report contains the following:
" A point of manners was discussed
between speaker Forster and Eberts, as
the concluding scene of last evening's
diiorderly session. Korster had peremptorily ordered McBrlde to "sit
down, " as out of order, when Eberts
rose with the protest that the speaker
should not thus address a member of
the house.
" What is the honorable member
speaking to?" asked Forster. " Will
you sit down."
" 1 will when I am addressed in proper
parliamentary language," Eberts replied, iu a lone indicating an intention
to bave it out with the speaker then
and there.
Foriter accepted the rebuke, however, and at the mild request, " Will
tbe honorable Member for (South Victoria take bis seat?" Eberts subsided
and the scene was over.
