THE GREENWOOD MINER.
Vol. 2, No. 2.
GREENWOOD, B. C, FRIDAY, FEB. 9, J 900.
500 Per Year.
OFF FOR THE WAR
Greenwood Citizens Going to
the Front.
Six Already Have left for Nelson, and
a Large Number More Anxious to
Go,���A Committee Wanted.
The war situation is becoming interesting from a local point of view On
last Saturday night last, Mayor Hardy,
who had wired several times to tbe Provincial Secretary, Victoria, offering the
services of a number of select men to
join the British Columbia contingent,
received a letter from Hon. C. A. Seni-
lin stating that the offer of British Co-
Columbi.i bad not been accepted; but
that information would be forwarded as
soon as a delinite reply was received
from Ottawa.
On Monday two of our citizens left
Nelson to join the Strnthcona Horse,
One of these was A. .1. M. Shaw, nephew
of C. M. Shaw. They were seen off by
a number of friends, who wished thetn
godspeed on their journey. This makes
the third from (ireenwood to join Mr.
Harris, having enlisted in Winnipeg.
The same day I.. S. Moulton-Barrett
received a telegraphic massage from
another (ireeuwooil man. ,1. Edwarda-
Leokie from Sudbury stated that forty
exceptional horsemen were required for
the Strathcona Horse. Mr. Leckie,
while east, obtained a com mission, lie
is a recruiting ollicer, and one well qualified for the service, being a good horseman and a lirst class shot. It is possible thai.Mr. Leckie will be in Greenwood to select some of the many applicants, who are now anxious to go to the
front.
B. H. Palmer a well known Greenwood citizen. A. VV. O'Brien, teller of
the Bank ..f Montreal, ami I��. (I. (Irani,
formerly of the Texas  Hangers,  left  on
Wednesday,  and  J. VV.   Robinson on
Thursday of this, week   for   Nelson.    A
large number of their friends assembled
at the Station to see them off.
Among those from Kossland  to enlist
Is a son of the Hon, C.  H.  Mcintosh,
who from the lirst has taken the very
keenest and most patriotic interest iu
the movement. I.. S. Moulton-Barret
has received seventeen applications in
response to Major bookie's telegram.
In connection with the going away of
our boys, a suggestion has been made
that a meeting should be called at once
and a committee formed for the purpose
of recognizing their loyalty, and doing
something substantial towards their
assistance. So far few have apparently
taken any interest in those wito bave
gone to tlie front. We suggest that a
meeting should be called at once and the
matter taken into consideration.
In regard to qualifications, Major
Leckie says that the candidates will Input through their paces in regard to their
horsemanship. The minimum qualifications in regard to physique are: Height
(ill inches ; chest, M inches. The 4U men
raised here will constitute a half squadron,

has a capital of 1,500,000 shares, half a
million shares of which bave been reserved for treasury purposes.
The dosing down of tho War Eagle
and Central Star mine, Kossland, will
have a disturbing effect in the local
mining markets. It is understood that
200 men have been laid off, pending tbe
installation of new machinery and the
blocking out of additional bodies of ore
for shipping.

al
Death of an Old-Timer.
The old-timers in this district, more
especially, were surprised and pained to
hear of the demise ot one of their number in the person of Alex, Wallace, a
prospector of this district throughout
which be was well known. His death
was caused by pneumonia, the result of
exposure, ami occured in tbe city hospital to which place be was removed
Irom Anaconda. Tbe remains, at th.
expressed wish of the deceased before
bis death, were interred in Midway,
The funeral took placu on Wednesday
from the undertaking parlors of T. M.
Gulley it Co.
Alux. Wallace was born in Glasgow,
Scotland, and was, as near as can ha ascertained, about48 years old. lie left
Scotland in boyhood, and lirst enlisted
in the American navy, lb- was for ;!.">
years a miner ami prospector, having
spent many years in Mexico ar.d California, from which place he had drifted
up through the mining camps of the Pa-
oiflo slope to the CVeur d'Alenes, and
from there to Oro, Washington. From
the latter place he came into the Boundary in 1891, prospecting in nearly all
the camps in tbe district. He was
owner of the Rub Roy, an extension of
No. 7, in Central camp, and at one time
had property in Camp McKinney No. 2.
lie was also at one time owner of the
Murray ranch near Greenwood, and
Wallace creek, which Hows through it,
was named after him. His principal
properties, however, were in the West
Fork country, where he was owner and
part owner of the Belle group and other
claims, considered by all mining men to
be very valuable. About two months
ago he bonded the Prince claim to John
Empey. He also owned a ranch about
eight miles above Beaver creek, ou tbe
West Fork. Tbe deceased knew nothing of his relatives, not having communicated with them for many years. His
brothers left for Australia in the early
excitement there, but he had never
heard from them, He was a man of eccentric habits, exceptionally well informed, and regarded by ail he bad dealings with as scrupulously honest.
Vktouia, Feb. 8.���(Special to the
MlKBB.) The Gazette this week has the
incorporation of The Greenwood MlNBB,
with a capital of ten thousand,
There is no longer any doubt that a
ti-oitg effort is being made to form a coition Government with Mr. Cotton at
the head. The Government recognized
that it is unable to face the estimates
with a majority of one, and the result is
that Mr, Cotton has been making overtures to some of the Opposition. The
latter know that they can't form a Government, even if Mr. Semlin was defeated ; and most of the members are adverse to going to the country, as it is
known that the result would alter the
complexion of the House. It is probable
that arrangements will be made to come
into effect at the  close  of  the  session,
the Opposition in the, meantime withdrawing factious opposition in supply.

Thereby Hangs a Tale.
,1. M. Kellie has again distinguished
himself by asking permission to introduce in the legislature a bill to regulate
the length of hair of men engaged in underground mining. The bill should have
the effect of keeping the Chinese and
the populists out of the mines, for the
Chinamen wears a queue, and Ihe populist is supposed to pride himself on the
super-abundance of bis hirsute appendage. Or, perhaps, Mr. Kellie's bill
may have some religious significance,
for the New York Journal, after careful
investigation, has arrived at the belief
that dwellers in the heavenly kingdom
do not wear whiskers. The London
News, evidently an authority on tlie
question, ventures the suggestion that
"for climatic reasons there are no superfluous hairs on the beads or faces of
the sojourners in the other place,
either."���Nelson Economist.
Mill Men Combine.
It is announced by Mr. Stein, secretary of the Board of trade, that all the
lumber and shingle mills of Vancouver
and Westminster have combined, and it
is hoped that ut an early date tbe mills
of Vancouver Island and tbe Kootenays
would follow suit. The combine is to
be known as the Association of British
Columbia Lumber and Shingle Manufacturers. John Hendry has been elected president and Mr, Stein secretary.
The lirst, act of the association was to
memorialize the government of Canada
to place a duty on all lumber and shingles imported into British Columbia
from I'uget Sound.
Presbyterian Church.
The ladies of the church have started
a Women's Association, one of the objects of which is to raise a fund towards
the furnishing of the new church. With
this in view they arc prepared to take
in orders,lor needle work of all sorts, including all useful articles of clothing,
etc. Charges reasonable. Orders will
be gratefully received by, Mrs. H. C.
Shaw,  president;' Mrs. A.  H.  Sperry,
vice-president; Mrs. Mowat,  vice-president; and Mrs. Hart, secretary.
The Alhambra Theatre hid several
unusually attractive features this week,
In the wrestling match, the principals
of which ar. noted athletes, on Tuesday
evening, D. A. McMillan and Louis
Cannon, champion catch-as-catch-can
and Grseco-Roman, wrestlers contested. There were five exciting bouts,
two of which Cannon won, in his style,
and three by McMillan in his. Tbe remarkable feature of the contest was
Cannon's great dexterity in turning and
bridging. He was clearly over-matched
in strength and weithg; but his agility
is surprising. The wrestling on Wednesday night was purely an exhibition,
in which Hali Adali, "the Terrible
Turk," the champion wrestler of tbe
world, appeared. .McMillan and Cannon were simply children in his bands,
his huge form and tremendous strength
being insurmountable barriers to all
their efforts. Two local men also stood
up before him, but only long enough for
hint to leisurely reach and Iloor them.

church, his duties iu connection with so
large a parish being too onerous for one

Arthur Rendell arrived from tlie east
last week after an extended visit. During his absence he spent a month at his
old home in Newfoundland, and visited
Montreal, Toronto, and other eastern
cities. He reports great activity in
Newfoundland ami Cape Breton in mining. He says that business has never
been so good for several years In all
lines. Some years ago, when a great
depression existed there through a failure in fisheries, and other causes, the
people were generally in favor of entering the Canadian confederation, but
now that prosperity reigns, that movement has .received a set-back, and sentiment is opposed to it rather than otherwise. At Sidney, Cape Breton, a very
large amount of money has been invested in mining and industrial enterprises
connected therewith. Business iu the.
east generally is good, although in tho!
cities of Montreal atul Toronto the tiiin- j
ing market is exceedingly quiet.

Coast, is an old-time newspaper map,
who had a varied experience both in
tbe east and British Columbia, Kr-
cenlly, owing to a  very sovere attack of
rheumatism, on aeoount of which he
was obliged to go lo California for some
time, be was advised by his physician
to seek a dryer climate, and in order to
combine the advantages of salubrity and
business prospects, lie came to Greenwood.

DEADWOOD, tlie latest town to seek public favor, is situated in the
heart of Deadwood Camp, about three miles from Greenwood, and an
equal distance from the B. C. Copper company's smelter. It is reached
by a spur of the Columbia and Western railway. It is surrounded by
such famous mines as the Mother Lode, Sunset, Buckhorn and Morrison,
which of themselves assure a Large Payroll, but exclusive of these there
are a hundred partially developed properties surrounding the town, many
of which will become paying mines, so that it does not require very much
foresight to decide that the Town of Deadwood will have in the near
future a sufficiently large payroll to support a city of some importance.

freane, and Ainu Eddy have entered into
a partnership to acquire und work the
Ingram ranch, situate about five miles
up the Kettle River valley from Midway. The ranch contains (140 acres,
including some of the most fertile and
productive bottom land in the district.
Some 200 acres of it have already been
cultivated yielding a good crop of timothy hay, which will be also the chief
product under the new ownership. The
land has its own water right and irrigating system. Messrs. Dufresne and Eddy
moved on to the property last Saturday,
and they will at once commence preparations for the coming season's cultivation. The purchase price of the land is
stated to have been $10,000.���Midway

C. P. R. and citizens of Grand Forks
$1,000, which will be ample it is thought
to do the work and make it a good road.

A LOCAL MILITIA CORPS.
In Another column is a letter from
E. G, Alston, city engineer, advocating
the formation of a local corps of volunteers in Greenwood. Thie is a suggestion which is very reasonable, and if a
request to the Department of Militia be
made and acceded to, there is littledoubt
but that the ranks of ot least two companies could be filled up immediately.
If it be considered advisable to adopt
the suggestion, now is a favorable time,
when the war exciUment is on, to carry
it into effect. Sooner or later local corps
in the Boundary will be formed, and
those interested should strike while the
iron is hot. While attention is now
centred in South Africa, military matters at homo should not be overlooked.
Although it is not ut present to be anticipated, further complications may
arise which will render it necessary to
bo in a condition of readiness in cane of
an emergency. A local corps of militia
is always a nucleus for more extended
organization.
FROM HOPE TO SIMILKAMEEN.
The delegation from Princeton to the
Coast, Messrs, James Anderson and A.
E. Howse, if they do not succeed in getting what they ask���a wagen road from
Hope into the Similkameen���have at
least succeeded in giving that section of
the country an admirable advertisement,
which will well repay the district for
the eipenees incurred. They are evidently the right men in the right place.
At this distance it is difficult to say just
what the advantage! are; but on the
face of it it looks like a feasible and commendable undertaking. It will bring
the trade of the Similkameen and the
Coast into direct connection, and assist
in drawing attention to and furthering
the direct line of railway from the Coast
this way, or to be more correct from
here to the Coast. The Government
may hesitate to build a wagon road in
view of the proposed extension ot the
Columbia & Western ; but if it has no
assurances of an early construction of
the latter, it should seriously consider
the alternative. A wagon road in any
event would be of great benefit to that
district.
MONKEY LEGISLATION.
J. M. Kellie, member for Revelstoke,
is nothing if not original. He has introduced a bill te limit the length of
hair of those employed in the mines.
It was thought when given notice of
that it was one of Kellie's jokes, but
from a dispach in the Tribune it would
appear that the bill has been introduced
and was voted for by all the Goverment
members and four of the Opposition.
It ia scarcely possible to take seriously
such a measure, which, if it becomes
law, will make a laughing stock of the
Province. Of course, it is aimed at the
Chinese, but it is of that ridiculous character that might be expected of some of
the State legislatures of the West, and
not of n dignified body of lawmakers
such as is supposed to exist in Canada.
Such enactments carry us back to a
time in English history, when laws
were passed regulating the length of
shoes and other details of wearing apparel. It is quite within the right of
the Legislature to paBS such a law. It
is also within its right to absolutely dispossess one man of his real estate, and
declare it to be the property of another;
but the same common sense considerations which prevent the latter should
prevail in such proposals as Mr. Kellie's. If our laws are to be respected
they must be so framed as to command
respect. A�� an exchange aptly remarks,
if Chinese are to be excluded from our
midst it is not by such "monkey business."

The rate at which the Senate is being

Jos. Martin- was last fall found guilty
of champerty. Champerty is a crime
perpetrated by lawyers when they go
"snooks" with their client on the general result. He has introduced a bill in
the House at Victoria to enable a lawyer
to commit champerty if he wants to���a
gooil sample of special legislation in the
interests of one man.
Tub hill now before the Legislature,
known as the Coal Miners' Regulation
Act, enacting that a man to be employed
underground must bo able to read in
English, is doomed to share the fate
of its predecessor, which wasdissllowed.
It is aimed, of course, directly at Chinese, but must affect a large number of
others of different nationalities as well.
It is admitted that it would be unjust to
make it apply generally, and an effort is
being made to so wortl the bill that it
will be discriminatory ; but it will require more skill than any of our legislators possess to sail between Scylla and
Charybdis in the way proposed. It is
quite competent for the Legislature to
impose an educational test, provided it
is not discriminatory. Here, however,
is where the bill, if it becomes a law,
will defeat itself. Its object is to evade
direct legislation against Chinese, but it
has been decided, apart from the constitutional disability of the Legislature to |
discriminate between nationalities, that
what cannot be done directly cannot be
done indirectly.

Editor Miner:
We must not let it be said that (Ireenwood is behind any city in the Province
���we know it it not. A Sufficient proof
of our public spirit is to be found in the
person of those who are about to leave
for South Africa to serve the best Queen
who ever lived. In the glamour of active service outside the Dominion, it
must not be forgotten that our duty lies
also in defending our country by staying at home and becoming efficient in
drill and shooting. Let us see the brave
boys away to the front, antl then set to
work to organize a local company of the
militia. We must not end the century
without this mark of patriotism;
As a volunteer of a good many years
service in the Old Country, the subject
has come before my mind very forcibly
within the last few weeks ; and it seems
to me that no better time than the present could possibly be chosen for making
a beginning in this good work. I am
vastly mistaken if there will not be a
great rush of names to swell the list, if
the organizing of a corps be decided
upon.
Should any of your readers agree with
me in this matter, I shall he glad to
meet them at my office or reeidence and
talk over the various points which should
be considered in a matter of this sort.
I am, dear sir, yours faithfully,

was organized here last week, with the
following board of directors: John A.
McMaster, W. J. Noble, Neil Cochrane,
Clacance E. Bailey and Hugh Sweeney ;
C. M. Kingston, M. I)., secretary-treasurer. The properties of the company are
the 21, in Summit camp, half a mile
from Eholt, and the Hlack Diamond,
near the Silver Cup, three and one-hall
miles from Trout Lake in the Lardeau
district. A staff of men have been put
to work on the 21, and line ore is
being taken out of the shaft at a depth
of eighteen feet. The Black Diamond is
a fine property, a tunnel being driven
in a vein of ore five feet wide between
well defined walls, ore from which assays of $18 in gold, '&)/�� percent, copper,
87 ozs. in silver, and .14 percent, in lead,
have been obtained. This company will
make a success of its operations, liavfng
a practical and capable management,
and great care having been exercised in
the selection of its properties. John A.
McMaster, the president, leaves for Toronto next week in connection with the
company's business.
The Canadian Pacific railway announces that Eholt has been made a
regular billing station, and a freight (or
this point can now be accepted with
charges collect, except as otherwise provided iu classification.
Mining interests are awakening, The

the deepest, mine in the camp. The I!, j
('. has shipped 22 carloads to dale.
Lou Pilky, blacksmith at Ihe II. ('.
mine, met with a serious accident one
day last week, when a splinter of sleel

Excellent looking ore has been found
on tho Strawberry.
Work on the Rambler is progressing
favorably, and this property will soon
be added lo the list of shippers.
The Oro Denero has found a large
body of ore in the third tunnel.
Eholt surrounded by all these good
mines should be a good distributing
point.
Mr. Kaiser is excavating for a new
building.
A lot in Eholt that could have been
bought for if 150 last fall was sold for $300
a few days ago.
The Eholt Trading Co. have just

Carpenters' Union Again Calls
Attention to It.
Four Applications for Use of City Hall
���Corralling the Chinese Residents���
A Letter on Smallpox by Dr, Schon.
The secretary of the Board of Trade
made application for the use of the City
Hall for the meetings of that hody. He
also wrote re the registry office in the
Boundary, announcement having been
made of the Government's intention to
create the same. Fred Mellis, secretary
of the band committee, wrote asking to
be allowed to use the City Hall lor practice. The city engineer wanted his salary paid for January ; received and filed.
A motion was passed to pay the salary
and requesting that the city engineer be
requested to send in an offer as to the
salary he would require to devote his
whole time to his duties. He was instructed to cease work until further arrangements were made. The Carpenters' Union wrote re petition for free
library, notifying the council that a com
rnittee would be present to receive report
on Bame. W. H. Jones, printer Rossland, wrote offering to tender on city
printing if assurances were given that
tender would be accepted if lowest. The
city solicitor advised that the letter re
treasurer's bonds would stand good if
letter were attached to bond. A. A.
Andrews, Winnipeg, wrote stating that
their agent's guarantee re bell for City
Hall would stand good though he had
not been notified of such a guarantee.
A committee consiting of Aldermen
Sharpe, Bannerman and Sutherland
was appointed to consider the petition
for a free reading room to report at the
next meeting. The communication
from the band committee was referred
to a committee of Aldermen Sullivan,
Cropley and Sutherland to report on.
The Board of Trade was allowed the use
of the City Hall on nights not required
by the council. The request was granted.
The matter of a supreme court registry was taken up and a resolution
was pasuod to be forwarded to the Government at Victoria. Dr. Sohon's letter, published elsewhere, was lsitl over
until next week. \V. E. Henton, chief
of the fire department, asked for the use
of the council chamber when not otherwise occupied, to be used as a gymnasium.
Aid, Sutherland reported for the fire
and light committee that blankets hail
been purchased for the firemen. Aid.
Sharpe (looking hard at the Miner representative)���"Tenders were asked. "
Smith Bros. & Travis were heard in
reference to an account of theirs which
had been disputed. The council agreed
to the payment of the balance of their
account of $5(12. The finance committee
reported the following accounts correct
and ordered same to be paid : Mcintosh
& Co., $48.13; H. H. Huff, $7;50; Gou-
pil & Holden, $8; T. E. Bedard, $83.40;
G. M. Foster, M. D., $15; John Robertson, $168.10; Mrs. E. M. Sewell, $18.
A number of tooln were authorized to be
purchased for the caretaker of the cemetery. A bylaw to raise money to pay
note in the bank received itn first reading.
Aid. Sharpe raised the question as to
whether the Chinese could not be confined to one portion of the city.   He con
sidered it very detrimental to the interests of the community that they should
be allowed to scatter all over the town
as they were doing at present. He
moved that the advice of the city solicitor be obtained as to the possibility.
Smallpox Quarantine.
The following letter from Dr. Schon
was read at the council:
''I have been very strongly urged by
the secretary of the Provincial Board of
Health, Dr. Fagan, who was in the city
this week, as to the need of vaccinating
all unvaccinated children and adults
Dr. Fagan has officially announced that
smallpox is epidemic at Spokane, and
the surrounding country.
"In pursuance of this 1 called a meeting at my office on January 31st of all
the physicians in the city, and after
pointing out to them that every facility
should be offered to the public in regard to vaccination, suggested that the
nominal fee of one dollar in each case
should be charged. I promised, on behalf of the city, that in consideration of
this small fee the physicians should be
supplied gratis with the necessary vaccine lymph. To this proposal they
agreed. At the hands of the head master
a certificate from every child attending
school of successful vaccination, or failing of that, unsusceptibility to vaccination, should be required.
"In order to deal quickly with any
emergency, I have requested a local business firm to hold at tlie disposal of the
city, for instant use, sufficient lumber,
doors, windows, etc., for the erection of
an isolation hospital on a site to be selected by me should the need arise.
"lam taking steps to obtain an ample supply of lymph, and hav'-j already
furnished the local physicians with the
stock that was on hand.
"I propose in all necessary cases to
vaccinate the Chinese compulsorily.
This process is now being carried out."

THE POLITICAL SITUATION
At Victoria Last Week Discnssed by Our Correspondent.
The following from our Victoria correspondent, which was received too late
for publication last week, is nevertheless Interesting enough to be published:
"The week which is just closing has
seen the dispatch of a great deal of public business, and if the Government
would but continue to dispose of tho
business of the country as expeditiously
as during the last few days, it would be
but a question of two or three weeks before the adjournment of the House.
But no one dreams that such will be the
case. The Government knows perfectly well that they have the most serious
opposition to encounter when they reach
the estimates, and they also know full
well that the rapidity with which they
have been able to push along the legislation this week, is due largely to the
fact that the Opposition have not their
usual voting strength. Joe Martin has
been seldom in his chair this week, and
D. W. Higgins has been confined to his
room all the week, with the exception
of yesterday, when he re-appeared in
his place in the legislature. This has,
of course, given the Government a great
advantage, and they manifest a desire
to hurry business as last as possible.
They are evidently anxious to get the
agony over, and the absence ol two
members oi the Opposition gave them
a chance which may not occur again this
session.
"The concern with which the Government members, feel in regard to the outlook was well exemplified the other day,
when the sickness of the brother of one
of the members, in New York, indicated
the probable absence of a vote from the
Opposition lor a few days. The Government clutched at the prospect of hurrying through to the estimates before
his return with an eagerness which
proves the straits to which they have
been reduced.
"On the other hand it is by no meani
certain that they have seen the last of
the defection from the ranks. Yesterday a statement was made on the floor
of the House by Mr. Prentice, which
would seem to indicate that his alleg
iance can no longer be depended upon.
He rose to a question of privilege,
and drew the. attention of the members
to the fact that he had beon branded as
a turncoat by an up country paper. "1
am not one yet,' he said, 'but when I
feel like becoming one, I will do so, and
I will not be afraid to go back to my
constituency,   either.'     It  waB signifi-

Three hundred Japanese colonists located two years ago in the southern
part of Cxaca, Mexico, near Jimiltpee,
under authority of a concession granted
by the Mexican government. The colony has been experimenting in tea-
growing, and has made such a success
that 6,000 more Japanese men and their
families are to be brought to Mexico to
join the original colony. Other tropical products are also raised by the colonists. Their extensive plantations are

Kegan Paul, the English publisher,
who has just published a book of
"Memories," is of the opinion that
" literature is not in itself a profession."
He is sorry for the young author who
"has nothing to fall back upon."
Wherein he disagrees with Sir Walter
Besant, who thinks that one may make
a very good living out of letters. Tennyson, according to Mr. Paul, was a
"thorough man of business, and our
final parting at the end of one of our periods of agreement was that we as publishers and he as author took a different
view of his pecuniary value " The passage is eloquent in more ways than one.
Governor Crane, of Massachusetts, is
a man of much sympathy and charity.
In the paper mills which he owns at
Dalton, a pension system exists, practically, if not nominally. There are nut
a few aged men in the town, former employees in the mills, whose sole duty
now is to walk to the office and draw
their pay���for service loyally rendered
in the past. A strike in the mills has
not been known in three generations of
family management.
The late Judge Charles P. Daly, of
New York, was a charming conversationalist as well as a model citizen and
an accomplished jurist. He met the
Duke of Wellington some fifty years ago,
and the duke remarked to him that he
seemed too young to be on the bench.
"I owe my position," replied Judge
Daly, "to one of those accidents of fortune to which your graoe owes so little."
"I recall my criticism," said the duke
grimly; "you are doubtless where you
belong."
An Iowa judge recently related an
amusing incident that had occured in
his court when a colored man was
brought up for some petty offense. The
charge was read, and as the statement,
"The State of Iowa against John Jones,"
was read inaloud voice, the colored man's
eyes bulged nearly out of their sockets, and he seemed overcome with terror and astonishment. When he was
asked if he had anything to say, or
pleaded guilty or not guilty, he gasped
out:     "Well,  yo'  honah,  ef de whole
State o' Iowa is agin dis one pore nigger, Ise gwine to give up right now."
The Duke of Cambridge, cousin of
Queen Victoria, has received more army
pensions than any other member of the
English royalty. In 1860 on the decease of his father, the county voted
him $00,000 a year. At eighteen years
of age he became a colonel; at twenty-
six a major-general; in IH54 a lieutenant-general ; two years later a general
on full pay; six years later a field-marshal at If22,fi00 a year; and in 1802 he
was appointed a colonel of the Grenadier guards at $10,000 a year. His
residence, Glouchester House, he, of
course, occupies rent and tax-free���
equivalent to about $12,500 per annum.
He hold the rangership of St. James,
Green and Hyde Parks, which increases
his annual Income by about $11,000, besides over $20,000 which he draws yearly
as rental of his estate near Wimbledon.
When William Jennings Bryan first
went to Nebraska, he was hired to take
the stump against Thayer, who was running for governor, and said some hard
things against the candidate: "Thayer
was elected," Bryan is quoted as saying
in the Chicago Times-Herald. "After
he took the governor's chair he was
called to be toast-master at a banquet at
which 1 was set down for a speech. I
did not care to go to that banquet, 1
did not wish to meet the governor. I
remembered all that 1 had said of him,
and I felt cheap. But I went, and I sat
there through the early proceedings
quite uncomfortable. Finally it came
time for the governor to call upon me.
He rose from his seat, with the programme before him, and slowly said:
'Mr. Bryan���Bryan.' Then he slowly
turned bis eyes upon me and addressed
me: 'Do you speak or sing'." That is
all I ever beard from Governor Thayer
as to what he thought of my campaign
speeches against him."

THE   GREENWOOD   MINER
THE PRENTICE HAND
That
Cracks   the
Victoria.
Whip   at
The Member for East Lillooet Holds
the Government in the Hollow of
His Hand.���May Come a Cropper.
Victoria, Feb. a.���(Special to the
Minbr.) This week has closed ominously
for the Government. Slieer, blind
luck lists so far saved them from defeat,
but signs are not wanting tltrt the life
of the administration has almost expired. Tbey have already yielded up
the functions of government, contenting with a pretense of leading the House
where tbey know that to puslt their
doubtful authority beyond a. certain
point would mean defeat. Tbose who
know best the political signs of the times
predict defeat during tlie coining week,
. and certainly the outlook for the Government is anything but bright. Their
power is completely shattered ; all that
remainB to be done is to put the poor
creatures out of misery.
The man of the hour is Prentice of
East Lillooet. He it it who holds the
fate of the administration it. the hollow
of his hand, and he goes out of his way
to demonstrate the fact, lie acts like a
rich wife, who loses no opportunity to
impress upon her less fortunate husband the great honor she has done him
by bestowing upon him her fortune and
her hand. The Government proposes,
but Prentice disposes, with apparently
no other object, in some instances at
least, than to prove to the cabinet that
they must not decide upon such a trivial matter even as the adjournment of
the House without asking his permission. And the Ministers recognize his
power. Galling as it must be to them
to be compelled to submit to the dictation of an obscure private member, they
take their medicine smilingly, knowing
that behind tlie suggestion there is generally a covert threat, which once carried out would involve the benches ol
the Government in dismay and in ruin.
There have been two or three instances recently where this power has
been exercised in a way which must
have been peculiarly exasperating to Mr.
Cotton. Had he differed with the Government on some broatl lines of policy
and had even accomplished their defeat,
it is doubtful if he would have annoyed
the members of the Government benches
as much as by his wilful and deliberate
action in regard to the adjournment of
debate. For the second time in
the last two or three weeks, the Government was compelled a lew evenings
ago to take back water because Prentice cracked the whip. And the whole
circumstance was funny enough to warrant tbe story being told for tbe benefit of tbe roadere of the Mixer.
It was between live and six o'clock on
Thursday evening. The House had been
discussing section three of Dr. McKech-
nie's ameiimdent to tbe Coal Mines Regulation Act, and at the conclusion of the
speech of Joe Martin, Mr. Booth asked
that the debate be adjourned. There
was an immediate chorus of dissent
from the Government benches. Then
Mr. Higgins rose, and asked that the
discussion stand over until a long amendment by Mr, McPhillips could be printed. But the Minsters were inexorable.
Cotton shook his bead positively with
an I-have-spokon air Mr. Semlin
raised his hand proteitingly. Even tbe
persuasions of Harry Helmcken, added
to those of the previous speakers, were
in vain. Tbe Ministry were all of one
mind for once, and a night aesssion
seemed settled
But the administration (?) had omit-,
ted one formality. They had reckoned, ;
if not without their host, at least with- \
out their Prentice. He entered the:
chamber just as the Government was
announcing its decision, and he beard
the positive assurances of the members
that no adjournment until the following ,
day  would be  permitted.   He saw at
once his opportunity and be raised tbe
whip. In other words he mentioned
that Buch a course did not meet his approval. The Ministry sat unmoved, for
it was well known that Mr. Dunsmuir,
prior to hii departure for New York,
had paired with the member for East
Lillooet. But when Mr. Prentice added
significantly that be had just received a
telegram from the member from Comox
relieving him from his pair, a desolate
feeling crept over the members to the
right of the Speaker. Mr. Cotton's face
blazed liery red with impotent wrath,
for who has the right to dictate to the
Government excepting the Finance
Minister ? Dr. McKeehnie at once rose
and made as dignified a retreat as possible, but the truth was too palpable to be
disguised, and the discredited Ministry
were chaffed unmercifully by the Opposition.
Statements made by members on the
left, and also by the Opposition press,
leaves little room for doubt that the allegiance of Mr. Prentice is a very precarious thing, and that he is si in ply playing a lone hand for whatever he can win
by the unique power he exercises. That
he holds any greater power than any
other member who chooses to steer a
course between two parties, is not quite
true. It is true, however, that the
course be is adopting, while it may embarrass the Government, in the meantime, will prove a boomerang in the
end. There have been members of the
House who have attempted such a
course bofore. And how much weight
has David Higgins today?
If the Government is defeated, who
will be called upon to form a Ministry?
That is the question which is asked on
every hand at present. He can scarcely call upon Turner or Eberts, after the
disgraceful way in which they were dismissed. But if not, who will he send
for? Many believe that Joe Martin will
be the man entrusted with the task of
forming a Ministry, though where he
will gat the members thereof, is a difficult question to answer.
This week has practically been taken
up by tbe consideration of the amendment, which is proposed to the Coal
Mines Regulation Act by Dr. McKeehnie. By this it is sought to enforce the
educational test, but the clause was so
palpably unfair to white miners, whose
education had been neglected, that the
President of the Council was forced to
introduce a modification of the system
which gives whites already employed in
the mjnes one year in which to master
the tusk of reading the regulations.
Tbey are to satisfy the mining inspector
of their ability to do this. This latter
clause especially a1 oused the ire of .loe
Martin, who attacked it as vicious in
principle, pointing out. that it put the
whole question of employment in the
mines in the absolute control of a creature of the Government.
>ext week the Deadman's Island debate conies on, when a battle royal is
expected. Happy will be the Government if it does not go on the breakers
during its progress,

The big hockey match on Saturday
night between Boundary and Rossland
took place in the rink, and resulted in
tbe defeat of our boys by 3 to 2. The
game throughout was fast and interest-
ing, and had it continued another flf
teen or twenty minutes would undoubtedly given the home hoys a victory, as
in the latter part of the last half they
were playing a strong game. When',
however, our boys lost was in luck ot
combination play. Individually there
was very clever work done, but as a
team their playing was weak. A banquet waB held at the Pacific after the

Donald Graham, ex-M. P. P., Armstrong, was in the city Saturday and
Sunday. He came over from Grand

was bad for tbe wheat crop, and the
open winter prevented farmers from

One of the most interesting and instructive lectures that was ever given in
Greenwood was delivered by tne Rev.
VV, A. Robins in Mrs. Foreman's hall on
Wednesday evening. Dr. Schon occu-
pred the chair. The subject was the
war in South Africa. Respecting an exposition which lasted two and a half
hours, it would be impossible to give, in
brief space, even 1111 intelligent outline.
With the aid of several maps on a large
scale, especially drawn by Mr. Ashcroft, the audience got a clearer knowledge of the topography of the country,
and of tho nature of the several campaigns, than all their reading previously
afforded them. His possible that Mr.
Robins will repeat the lecture at an
early date, and the maps prepared by
Mr. Ashcroft will probably be disposed
of by public auction for the benefit of
the church funds.
