Vote With the Government���Martin Makes an Attack on Cotton.
Victoria, January 11.���[Spatial to the
MiNKit.] ��� Unless something unforseen
occurs, it now seems probable that the
Suiiilin Government will beable to carry
on public business, though their weakness caiiiml fail to be a frequent source
of embarassment to them The absence
of two members on the Government side
would place the administration in peril
of defeat, The arrival of Prentice anil
his evident intention to follow his party,
placed the Cabinet beyond the possibility at least of immediate defeat, Another feature of the situation is the evl-
dent fact that Mapcherson has reconsidered Ills intended support of Martin. He
sits meekly on the Government bunches,
steadily voting with the administration,
Helgescn, too, whose loyalty was re-i
garded as doubtful, seems returning to
his old allegiance.
The House yesterday witnessed one of:
the most remarkable spectacles to which j
it has yet been  treated iu a session  of
dramatic situations.    Shortly a.ter four
Spur Lines to Phoenix and Mother
Wanted Freight Delivery.
W. F. Tye, general superintendent Co-
lutnbia >V: Western, ,1. (i. Sullivan,
assistant engineer, M. Sullivan ami A.
W. Stewart, all of Trail, arrived in the
city Wednesday on business in connection with the railway. Mr. Tye was interviewed as to the completion of the
various spur lines, lie said the traffic
returns would not justify the great expense of completing ami keeping open
the line to Phoenix, anil be said it was
not the intention of the eonipady to do
so until spring. There is some bridging
to do on the spur to the Mother Lode to
complete it, which will he operated if
there is sufficient ore to ship, not otherwise.
Regarding freight, Mr. Tye complained
about the great difficulty there was in
having delivery made here. lie said
there were 175 cars on Ihe sidetracks between Cascade and here, all Greenwood
freight, (everything had been moved
from Kobson, and if freight was delayed
now it was the fault of tbe people bare
and not of the railway.

that there would be any public meetings. Thomas Miller, however, did not
propose that this should be tbe case and
made arrangements for a meeting on

tlie evening in question the hall was
packed to the doors and many were unable to obtain admission. W. M. Law
was elected chairman and announced
that the various candidates would address the electors aud adswer all questions that might be put. to them with
reference to thuir policy on municipal
affairs. All the candidates with the exception of James Sutherland and J. W.

A POLITICAL DRAMA
Review of the Incidents of Legislatorial Events
In Victoria in Connection With the
Opening of the House���Mr. Turner
Makes a Great Speech,
Victoria, January li.���[Special to the
Miner.]���The opening of the second session of tbe eighth Provincial Parliament
here on Thursday afternoon excited
more than ordinary interest as was evident from the very large number who
accepted the invitations of the Speaker
to a place on the floor of tbe House.
The galleries, too, were crowded and
there was an air of suppressed excitement which pervaded corridors and
committee rooms before the arrival of
tbe Governor and his staff. The Government knew that the Opposition was
out in force prepared to do battle from
the very opening of tbe session, and
they also knew that their own position
was by no means as secure as it might
be. But they were hardly prepared
for the turn which events ultimately
took.
While the preliminaries were being
arranged, the Premier crossed the Hour
and held a whispered conference with
Colonel Baker, the purport of which became evident when immediately after
prayers the Colonel rose and suggested
that as the Government were intending
to submit a motion offering the Minister
of Militia a mounted and thoroughly
equipped company for service in South
Africa, with free transportation to Halifax, that it should be the first order of
business. This, of course, was gracefully conceded by the Premier, who then
moved:
" Resolved, that the Province of British Columbia offer to furnish a company
of mounted men, with transportation to
Halifax or other port of embarkation,
for service with the Canadian contingent
in the Transvaal."
The motion was proposed by the Premier in a speech which, while neat and
graceful, lacked tbe usual finish of the
addresses of the First Minister. He
was evidently laboring under suppressed
excitement. It was seconded by Mr.
Turner, who was applauded when he
said that of all the troops which Britain
was sending to the Transvaal not one
was a pressed man. He was followed
by Colonel Baker, Major General Kin-
chant, Dr. McKeehnie and others, the
motion ultimately, of course, carrying.
It was while tbe Premier was speaking that one of the most dramatic incidents which has ever been witnessed in.
the House took place. The door on the
Opposition side opened, and all eyes
were turned in that direction, for tbe
figure of Hon. Joseph Martin strode"
into the room. Any lingering doubt
that be was bent on tbe destruction of
tbe Government was dispelled from the
very fact that he entered the chamber
from the Opposition side. He moved
along the rear of the Opposition seats,
and pausing, faced the Premier, without
taking bis seat. The Premier stifni-
mered, and well he might, for be understood well the significance of tlie stop.
Had Martin not arrived the Government
was perfectly safe, for Wells was due a
few hours later, and even without his
presence the Government were safe with
the Speaker's vote. Martin was detained   in   Vancouver  and  it was not
anticipated that be would arrive in the
Capital before Monday.
Some day a communicative member
of the Opposition will tell the details of
the steps taken to insure his presence
on the night of tlie opening, but at pres-
sent the public know only the outline,
They know that tbe Dunsiiiuir's boat,
the Joan, went over specially for him to
Vancouver and that on his arrival at
Nanaimo a special Dunsnuiir train
awaited him and brought, him down as
fast as the iron horse could travel to
Victoria. But when he walked past the
chair of James Dunsmuir, M. P. P., the
face of that gentleman bore no sign of
recognition. Finally the ex-Attorney-
General dropped into a sent behind the
"born orator," A. F. McPhillips, but bis
old antagonist made no sign.
Tbe inevitable followed. After the
matter of the Transvaal contingent had
been disposed of the Premier moved that
the Queen's Speech be taken into consideration on the following Monday.
This was defeated, Messrs. Higgins and
Martin voting with tbe Opposition,
and the vote standing 18-17.
Then the Prime Minister moved that
tbe House when it adjourns stand adjourned until Monday at L' o'clock.
This also was defeated on the same vole.
So far the Opposition had an advantage and Hushed with victory they
blundered in tactics and lost an exceptional opportunity to complete tbe em-
harassment of the Government. Mr.
Turner rose, and every parliamentary
tactician in the House leaned forward
eagerly for bis motion which they all
expected would be one looking to tbe
adjournment of the House.    This would
I not have been open to debate aud would
i inevitably bave carried. Instead Mr.
Turner moved that when the House rose
i it should stand adjourned until Tuesday.
j This opened up a debate in which Hon
A lex, Henderson saw his opportunity.
He took tbejloor, andinspiteof repeated
interruptions held it until  the  Speaker
I saw 0 o'clock, and Ihe House rose.
When the House resinned at 8 o'clock
Mr. Wells had arrived and the administration was again safe.
As the House now stands the Government have a majority of one, exclusive
of the vote of the Speaker, upon which
they could depend in an extremity. Mr.
Prentice is still to arrive, and rightly or
wrongly, the Opposition are darkly
hinting that even if be comes that be
will be no support to the administration.
It certainly seems odd that knowing as
he must bave done*the extremity of the
Government that Mr. Prentice was not
in his seat at the opening of the House.
Mr. Wells' late arrival v?as due to indisposition.
Should Mr. Prentice go over to the
other side of tbe House it will mean that
: the Government of the country will
have to be carried on by the vote of tbe
Speaker. Prior to tho opening of the
session it was claimed that ex-Speaker
Booth would change his Hag and ally
himself with the dominant party, but
as yet be has given no sign of such intention. Everyone is of the same
opinion here that the situation cannot
ihe sustained, and the question now is,
! what will the next sitting of the House
bring forth?
r   On Monday Mr. Turner will move a
direct vote of want oi confidence, which
will in all probability be productive of a
Ion; debate.
The situation is, of  course,   tbe  main
��� topic of conversation in hotels aud
lobbies, and a great deal of speculation
is indulged in regarding the outcome.
The Opposition are understood to be
adverse to a dissolution, yet to the out-

Old Ironsides Water Works.
This week a carload of waterpipe
arrived at Hartford Junction, for the Old
Ironsides water system, which is now
being installed, The pumping station
has been built in the gulch and a boiler
put in place. On the hill on a level with
the No. 2 shafthouse, the lumber is all
on the ground (or a tank that will have
a capacity o( r>0,IH)0 gallons. It is believed that this will afford ample water
supply for that part of the city. Mains
will belaid through the principal streets
as fast as required, and already a large
amount of digging baa been done for this
purpose.���Phoenix Pioneer.

The speech foreshadows a large expenditure in Omenica, ami the amendment of the Liquor Lieeense Aet, which
the Government last session assisted so
materially in rendering expensive and
unsatisfactory, Otherwise it would appear, adopting an old and familiar form
1 of criticism, the Speech is more remarkable for what it does not than for what
it does contain, something which, as
suggested by one ot their own supporters, the precarious position in which tho
government is placed readily accounts
for.

BPEEOH FROM THE THRONE.
It is a satisfaction to know that the
Boundary country has claimed so large
a share of attention in the Speech from
the Throne, and this it no doubt largely
due to the persistent agitation which
has been carried on by the press and
Hoards of Trade in tbe past year, but no
doubt also to the personal visits of Minister* and others. The most important
subject referred to is representation.
Boundary Creek is to receive separate
representation in the Legislature, and
this is n measure which will have the
unqualified support of all parties.
Preliminary arrangements have been
completed, it is stated, whereby the
Columbia & Western Railway, which is
entitled to an approximate grant of L\-
500,000 acres of bind, may receive a cash
sni>"idy instead, It is stated, although
no details are given, that this will prove
a saving to the treasury ; and is certainly
to bo preferred. It is alleged that
1,000,000 acres in Boundary Creek dis-
srict will be thrown open for settlement
in consequence, #
With the patriotic expressions of sentiment in favor of a linn and devoted
attachment to the Crown, all will agree ;
and the Government and Opposition
uniting in offering to equip and forward
a company as far as Halifax for service
in the Transvaal, deserve commendation,
Possibly a good many people, especially those in tbe const districts, will
smile at tbe credit which the government takes to itself for the success of its
policy in Atlin. It is true that Mr.
Justice Irving succeeded in evolving order out ol chaos, but that can hardly he
called a feather in the Government's cap,
it having created tbe confusion in the
first place.
The Miner some time ago advocated a
complete revision of tbe educational system, whereby the people in towns and
outlying districts would have a larger
share in the management of schools, and
the Speech from the Throne assures  us
that the Government has such a policy
in view. Doubtless, this is tun large extent the result of the visit which Mr.
Alex. Robinson, Superintendent of Education, made throughout the interior
last fall.    During such visit be was able
(iOOI) ROADS,
The Inland Sentinel has inaugurated
an agitation for the improvement of the
existing system of mad building throughout the Province, something that should
receive the support of the press, whether
Opposition or Government, The building of roads has, recently, had a great
deal of attention. In many States of
tbe Union and in the Province of
Ontario Road Commissioners have been
appointed, whose business it is to supervise and to give instructions in scientific
methods. Perhaps in no way can money
he so easily wasted as in the construction
of roads, and where it forms one of the
largest items of expenditure in a country
like this the importance of saving at
every point is self-evident���not to speak
of the advantages in other respects
which a scientific system would afford.
As has already been stated, u Road
Commissioner has been appointed in
Ontario whose efforts have given vcrv
general satisfaction and who has done
much towards creating a strong  public
; opinion in its favor. Of course, the conditions in Ontario and British Columbia
widely differ, the one being a Hat country and the other a  mountainous coun-
j try.     Nevertheless    tbe   necessity   for
! improved methods exist as much in the
1 one as in the other.
A SIGNIFICANT STATEMENT.
The Inland Sentinel, which is edited
by Mr. Deane, member for North Yule,
contains the following significant statement in regard to the position of the
Government, It shows more clearly than
anything else the slim hold which the
Government lias even on its own supporters. Mr. Deane was elected as a
strong supporter of the present administration, and it was through the grace
of the late Attorney-Genera] that he was
allowed without fear of penalty to take
bis sent last session in the House.
"The indications are that Government
will be able to get through the session,
though in order to do so the utmost care
will have to be exercised in the introduction of new, or changes to past, legislation. Practically the life of the Government depends a good deal more on
the unwillingness of members on both
sides of the House to bring on general
elections at an early date, than any majority the (ioxtrnment can command in
support, of its measures, or in defence of
its conduct of affairs to date. These circumstances, in our opinion, strongly emphasize the necessity for the introduction
of a fair redistribution bill. Such a
measure should be introduced and passed
before any other business is touched."

club will join the B.itish Columbia
Hockey League and participate in the
games for the championship, It was
recognized by the members of bothclubi
that neither club bad a team sufficiently
strong to outer the league on its own
account, and as it, is most desirable to
have the Boundary district represented,
the outcome was the formation of the i
new club.    The meeting elected  the fol- i
lowing officers: President, F. J. Finucane, .Greenwood; first vice-president,
major I;, ii. Edwards-Leckie, Republic;
second vice-president, Clive Pringle,

It is reported on good authority that
Irving's daily profit in the United States
this season has heen $3,240, and that
when this record-breaking engagement
of twenty weeks is completed he will
have realized nearly $100,000. A supplementary season of two weeks will
probably he given in New York later,
A secpjel to Mr. ,1. M, Barrie's "Sentimental Tommy" is promised, the first
instalment to appear in January-number
of Scrihner's A sequel was almost imperative, hut admirers of Barrie will
await the result with some anxiety, for
seipiels are proverbially dlsapppinting,
The title of the new story is to be "Tommy
and Grizel."
Smith, a hotel man, and Jones, a manufacturer's agent, were talking one day
about their business interests. "I say,"
said Jones, "however do you use such
an enormous quantity of pears and
peaches?" "Well," replied Smith, "we
eat what we can, and what we can't eat
we can." "Indeed!" said the other,
"we do about the same in our business."
"How is that?" "We sill an order when
we can sell it, and when we can't sell it
wo cancel it."
Noteworthy proof of the stability of
Dickens's hold upon popular taste is to be
found in the now litions of bis works
appearing this y( ar���the twenty-ninth
since his death, live editions have been
published or are now in press. These include the "(iadshill," the "Victoria,"
the Daily News editions, the "Temple"
pocket edition, and the "New Century"
edition, also of pocket size. As all of the
Dickens copyrights have not yet expired,
only those editions published by authority of Messrs. Chapman & Hall are absolutely complete. A new card game
called "Characters from Dickens" has
lately been compiled by Mrs. Olivia
Dcaly, Kach of sixty cards boars the
name of some character, and under the
name questions concerning the character.
The following are some current references to Aguinaldo's plight.���If Aguin-
aldo escapes this time he will have to be
a bird ; an open door in the Philippines
that opens out is what Aguinaldo is looking for at this particular time; anyone
having a second-class horse he would
like to trade for a kingdom woulddu well
to consult Aguinaldo.

Ten Shipping Mines.
James Sword, in an interview with the ,
Kossland  Miner,   has  the   following  to
say:    "According lo the reports  of  the I
managers there should be by next midsummer at least ten shipping mines
tributary to Greenwood and (Irand
Porks, and some of them will produce a
very heavy tonnage. T'.o number may
he considerably in excess of this, but
the number mentioned may be regarded I
as a conservative estimate. The capacity |
of the smelters as at present designed
should he taxed to the fullest extent and
it does not seem liktily that any ore will
be treated outside of the district except
what little will go to Trail smelter pending tbe completion of the two Boundary
smelters. This will be due, of course,
to the fact that the cost of the coke in
the Boundary district will he hut aslighl
advance over what it is delivered (or in
Nelson and Trail. Notwithstanding the
pessimistic views taken by many mining
men as to the business to be done next
year, Otuaccount of the war scare, there
should be a very busy season in tlie
Boundary country with a steadily and
rapidly increasing production of ore."

One-Quarter Interest in Okanagan, Camp McKinney,
Sold to Geo, McAulay.���Standard and
Marguerite, Deadwood, Bonded���A
Grist of Mining1 News.
An important mining deal wan concluded on Wednesday when George
Micaulay, president of the Cariboo mine,
Camp McKinney,purchased a fourth interest In the Okanagan, an adjoining
claim, from J. Moran, for $20,000 cash.
The Cariboo company acquired the other
interests last year. The Okanagan, as
stated, adjoins the Cariboo and contains
its lead. The workings in the latter extend to tho dividing line.
There are two more important mining
deals to report this we:k. The Standard, Deadwood Camp, adjoining the
Mother Lode, bus been bonded by Mas-
sam & Laidlaw, Spokane. The Standard
adjoinB the Mother Lode and the Crown
Silver of the Summit group on the north,
running 1,500 feet east and west and
1,200 feet north and south, and has been
surveyed for a Crown grant. The own-
ore of the Standard were Philip Aspin-
wall and James T. Johnstone. Massam
& Laidlaw bonded Johnstone's half and
join with Aspinwall in a stocking proposition. This firm of brokers also got an
option yesterday on the Marguerite and
Marguerite fraction, adjoining (ireat
Hopes on the north. These claims have
remarkably good showings, there being
three parallel ledges on the surface.
There is a shaft down on the Marguerite
forty feet, at which depth drifting has
been done and a winze sunk. A vein
fourteen feet wide, in jold ami copper,
has been exposed, averaging $14, Six
feet is in diorite and eight feet in magnetite. The owners of the Marguerite
are J. P. Harlan, B.O.Brown ami Dr.
D. McMartinof New York. Mr. Laidlaw, who completed the above deals,
went out to Spokane yesterday and will
leave for the Last immediately in connection with tho flotation of tbe above
properties,
Tuesday lust, we can state on good
authority, six men were sent to the Victoria mine, one of the properties of the
Victoria Cold and Copper Mining Company at English Point, on Christina
Hake, to begin work for the winter.���
Cascade Record.
Msrk Houston says there is considerable activity in the Similkameen conn
try and properties are being developed
in several of the camps. Mr. Houston
reports that the C. P. R. has made surveys of different routes into that country,
and the belief is general there that a
railway will be constructed some time
next year.
The Oro Denero is being rapidly developed under the snperinteinlency of i
Neil Cochrane and the ore showings are
of a most encouraging character, As
soon as the tunnel running to meet the
drift from tbe shaft has made connection, which will be in three or four
weeks, it will enable ore to be taken out.
for shipment, and Mr. Cochrane thinks
that from March on enough ore at least
can be taken out to make the property
self-sustaining The company is laying
out part of the Oro Denero for townsite
purposes. Mr. Cochrane has recently
sent in his report on the mine, and this
is being printed and sent to all shareholders.

A POLITICAL DRAMA
continued from second  page.
side observer they are less likely to carry
on   the   government   than the   present
Administration. It is believed by many
that Mr. Semlin will endeavor to carry
on the public business until the estimates aro pushed through and that he
will then resign and appeal to the country, In such an event he would enjoy
a certain amount of prestige which
would not otherwise be his.
On the other hand it is difficult to surmise what course will be adopted by the
Lieutenant-Governor in certain premises. That he would again send for Mr.
Turner or Mr. Elierts, in both of whom
he professed to have lost confidence,
seems unlikely, or if he were even to go
outside the House, as be did on a certain
memorable occasion, it is hard to say
where be would find a First Minister.
Victoria, January 9.���[Special to the
Miner.]���In introducing a want of confidence motion as an addition to the reply to the speech, which tad been moved
by Tisdall of Vancouver, and seconded
by J. M. Martin of Rossland, ex-1'remier
Turner today delivered tbe longest and
strongest speech he has yet made in
British Columbia politics, Contrary to
his usual custom he spoke altogether
without notes, and for upwards of two1
and a half hours dissected and hotly
attacked tbe government's weakness and
inconsistency,  paying special   attention
to the financial record of the administra
tion,  and drawing  the deduction   that
British Columbia lost the confidence of
the financial world under the present
administration from thu depreciated
rating of the Provincial securities, ami
the fact that there were no public appll-
��� cations for the last loan when it was put
on the market.
