Hon. Joseph   Martin and  as a  reward
' will be taken into his cabinet, furnishes
; the must interesting feature of  political
gossip,   many   of   "Winchester's"  old
'associates in polities sharing the opinion
that a compact of some sort has been
made between him and the government
leader
From Esquimalt district the news is
received that a  convention  of  resident
farmers will be held at the elose  of  the
present  week   to   nominate   candidates
who will speak for the  farmers,   regard
for party allegiance not being the chief
element  for  consideration.     Mr.   lluy-
wnrd will, of course, be one of the two
I nominees, according to this programme.
In North Victoria  Ml. J. J. White of
Sydney has come forward  with  an en-
��� dorsemeut of tbe  Martin platform  and
! announces himself as out to defeat Mr.
j Booth, while out in Cowiehan friends of
j Mr.  Hard  nre   endeavoring  to   induce
! him to offer himself as a Martinite.
In North Nanaimo a requisition  has
' been   presented   to   Mr.   John   Byden,
1 bearing 2110 signatures, asking him to be
again a candidate, in  which event there
j is no question but  that he  will   be  returned once more with an increased majority.
John R. Ryder is once  again hack in
j his ollice,   directing   the financial   machinery of the country,    lie  expects  to
. find his opponent iu Comox  in the person of Mr.  Moore.      Mr.   Ralph  Smith
was also in the city yesterday and cou-
anil slovenly work in otlier lines, in-
eluding the printing business. More serious still, at times it means the oppression of men and women, boys and girls,
tbe debasement of manhood and womanhood, to serve the ends of the greedy
employer. It is to correct such evils
that organized labor exists, and it can
correct them. No man, no corporation,
no party, no government, can afford to
despise such organized labor."
Tlie landing of the army of Orientals
in Hritish Columbia bids fair to b/idge
the chasm between Hon. Joseph Martin
and organized labor. Martin is a stalwart opponent of the, immigration of
Chinese and Japanese settlers and challenges the co-operation of workiiiginen.
The Dominion government is idle while
tlie yellow stream of cheap workers is
coming in. It will be interesting to
watch developments in the west during
thu next two months.
Beginning tomorrow, the assessment
of the members of the International Tp-
yograpbical Union will be 80 cents a
month, just double the amount hereto-
i fore paid by them, This increase has
been decided upon by a vote of the members, anil carried by a majority of 1,700,
says an Indianapolis dispatch of April
HO. By this action the income for the
aid of striking printers, and paying the
general expenses of the union, will
amount to about $11,000 a mouth.

AWFUL   EXPLOSION
Nearly 200 Lives Are Lost in
a Utah Mine.
Caused by Several Cans of Blasting
Powder Blowing Up���Fire at the
B. C. Mine.
On Monday several cans of powder
stored in No. 4 mine of the Pleasant
Valley Coal company exploded, causing
fearful havoc.
It is thought that the number nf lives
lost will exceed 200. The rescuers are
still proceeding with their task. A
special train was sent from Salt Lake
to the scene of the disaster with the
mine superintendent and several doctors. It is not thought that uny of tho
missing will be found alive.
Fire at the B. C.
A tire starting in a heap of brush on
Tuesday came nearly destroying the
buildings at the B. C. mine. The wind
bore the liiimes toward the shaft and
powder houses. The men led by Superintendent Scrafford worked hard,
and the wind changing they were able
to save the buildings. As there was
dynamite in the powder house
and more in cars on the track the result
might have been'very serious.

Indian Reservation Opened.
The north half of the Colville reservation opened fer settlement May 1.   The
district contains rich  agricultural,  tim-
Leroy Mine.
A  ricli   vein of free milling ore has
been encountered  on  the.   Leroy   mine,
about four miles from Camp McKinney.
Running through  the claim  is a large
body of pyritfc ore giving good values In jlier ttllfl mineral lands, and boomers are
gold and copper.    Tbe free milling vein ! rushing across the line,
is supposed to be a continuation of that comprises a million and
ou the Dayton,   from  which   very  rich   land.    The ceded   mineral  portion
specimens   of free gold  have been oh-j known  to contain   immense
taiiied. j low-grade ore.
The district

bodies of
Pass Creek Camp.
The principal property in this camp
is the Rambler group, located about one
mile from Eholt. The shaft is down
about 80 feet, 50 feet of which is in ore.
Crosscuts have been run, showing the
ore body to be 25 feet in width. The
ore is a good grade and unlike most
properties in that sectisn of country it
gives good values iu gold as well as copper. An average assay of the ore runs
2 per cent, copper, 8 ounces in silver
and Ifli in gold, or about $1(1 pur ton in
all.
Ore stoplng.
At the Knob Hill mine ore sloping
has begun. Large areas of ore have
been opened lip and the stupes will be'
regular underground quarries almost
without limit. Stuping has also commenced on the (lid Ironsides. On the
War Eagle the crosscut is now in 30
feet at the 100-foot level. About 20 men
are employed. The results so far attained have been eminently satisfactory
to the management.
Our Kick.
If the officials at the C. P. R. freight
offices would attend to their business a
little more strictly we would not bave
to keep our job plant idle so much. We
hope that from now on we will be immediately notified when we have goods
consigned to ns at the depot. If we are
not we will make it our business to report the laxity of tlie officials' to headquarters.

the grade be given in front of the lot
owned by Mrs. Annie Liirkin, and upon
which she intends to erect a three-story
building; from Wilson A Senkler, a legal
firm of Vancouver, saving that in their
opinion the award, made by Ross and
Jacobs in the arbitration case, is a nullity, and that the whole thing would bave
to be done over.
It was resolved that the Masons,
Church of England and Roman Catholics be granted portions of the cemetery,
similar in size to that given to the Odd
Fellows It was resolved that a special
committee be appointed to interview
plaintiffs in arbitration eases, and that
il be left to said committee, if plaintiffs
are agreeable, to cancel former awards,
and settle the difficulty ou a new and amicable basis. The committee appointed
were Sharpe, Sullivan and   Bui,Herman.

residents asking the Council lo pass i
by-law arranging for the sprinkling o
the streets. The petition was received,
and Ihe solicitor was instructed to ileaw
up a by-law covering the question,

council had received 17   tenders   for  the
removal of gravel bank on Boundary
avenue, and said that both the townsite

Mr. Loiigheed is foreman al the Sunset
iu the Siiiiilkameen, which lias just
closed down on account of a vein ol
water being opened iu the shaft, which
the present plant could not handle, lie
said the ore al the bottom of the shaft
was richer than any yet encountered;
and that much of ii contained native
copper. Mr. Loiigheed thinks the Sun-
- sel has the biggest showing of copper he
has ever seen, thoroughly agreeing in
that respect with the principal owner,
Mr. Brown.

When 1 went into the Geelong ancient stupes (which ire left intact) I
spet.t considerable time in fossicking
about ut depth I was happy in lurking over the debr-, n coining upon two
granite balls, bearing evidences of having been used lis hallllliCI'-, illlliosl exactly round and about the si/.- of two
hands denuded, in parts, the undent
stupes were very narrow, and one had
to penetrate to cavities I slope.-) of not
more than two or three feet from roof to

Were quite cavernous. In the.latter, the
wall was frequently alcove in character,
smooth, and in some purls still black
from smoke, and amongst the debris
were remains uf charcoal. It is believed, and I can quite credit the theory,
that the procedure oi the ancient was to
light lire.-in the slopes,   tin   then   when
the   gold-bearing  rock   i led,   to use
r**i, granite hummers to break down the ore.
To go further, the chipped-off, gold-bearing rock would probnblj he pin into native baskets and enrrieil to tie surface.
I found occasionally at Ihetopof kopjes, or hill.' hills, where there were
large musses oi hard rock, patches of indentations in tint ureas of rock, jusl as
though iinniars had been sunk into the
rock. Besides the pots were numerous
slight elongated indentations. It would

SLOCAN MINING NOTES.
The Vancouver, Four Mile, is to start
up shortly with a large force of men.
W. K. Koch has a large force of men
and horses on the Enterprise  property.
Bruce White is talking of putting in
an aerial tram at the Mollie Gibson
mine.
Small forces are now going to the
bills from Sandon regularly on assessment work.
E. Rammelineyer is having considerable work done on the Dutchman, bis
Ten Mile property,
The ore shipments from Whitewater
station for week ending April 26 were:
Whitewater mine III) tons.
The Silvertonian says for the third
time that the Emily Edith is to start up
with a large force on Monday. It is a
very large concentrating property.
A strike of some importance on the
Lizzie claim, a short distune to the east
of Mcljuigan. It is owned by Mike
Penrose. A number of inches of good
galena have been found in the lead a
few feet from the surface.
Tbe long crosscut at the Ivnnhoe is
now in 1100 feet, and the lead wili be
struck iu about 100 feet more, probably
in about two week's time. One blind
lead was encountered on the way containing some ore on which drifting will
be done later ou. The rock all tbe way
was very hard, and, all things considered, it is said to have been the best
work ever done in the district.

PHOENIX NOTES.
Tlie opening of the Victoria hotel was
the occasion for a grand ball on Tuesday evening. Music wns supplied by
Greenwood artists. An excellent supper was servetl by mine host Fleishman,
and a delightful evening spent.
On Wednesday morning about 75 lbs.
of giant powder in the Ironsides magazine exploded, breaking windows all
over town, and severely injuring one
man. Tbe cause of the explosion is not
known
Times are brightening in Phoenix.
Tbe Ironsides company is puttfng on
more men daily, and a successful business season is now a certainty,
What an Elector Says.
Greenvvwod, May 1,���Editor of the
MlNBR, Dear Sir: The (ireeuwooil
Times in its issue of Saturday, May 28th
ult. contained the following statement:
"Mr. Martin spoke ut Ymir the other
ilav ami told his audience that he would
rather see J. Roderick Robertson elected than John Houston, and Mr. Robert-
Son is president of the mine owners association and was the man who made
the light against, the eight-hour law in
the Slocan."
The above quotation was circulated
by Mr. Martin's enemies and published
in the paid press. Mr. Houston's
paper, the Nelson Tribune, gave ihe
statement prompt correction. Here is
what Mr. Martin did say: "That in the
event of his government being elected,
Mr. Houston, going to Victoria as an independent, would he of no more service
te him than J. Roderick Robertson, as
be could not recognize any persons who
would not support both the platform
nnd the government."
Such false statements will not injure
Mr. Martin's chance of election, as the
subsidized press of the opposition has
little effect, in   the   province.
Thanking yon in anticipation (or your
valuable   space,   I   remain,  yours   very
truly. Elector.
