Const to Boundary, Government ownership of railways, the re-enactment of
anti-Mongolian     legislation,    ami    the

Party Lines.
The revelations of tlie past fcw da
of   political   intrrgue  and
:iys,
at  Victoria,
scramble for ollice on both sides, has
been a shock to the public of the Interior. The situation has opened the eyes
of the people to the absurdity and anomaly of the game of personal politics, and
they are rapidly coining round to
straight party lines. It is safe to say
that four fifths of the Liberals and Conservatives will now favor tying up to
a party with a definite policy and a re
cognized leader, in preference to choosing a side in such a medley as at present exists. It is the only way out of a
dilemma, the like of which has never
been witnessed in this country. Both
federal parties should call conventions
and decide at once.

to read the speech proroguing the House,
the members left in a body, and the
speech    wns   read    to   empty   benches.

The full report on the War Eagle
mine by E, 14. Kirby Iuir been published.
It is extremely interesting in view of
the present close down. In his concluding remarks Mr. Kirby says: "The
rate of production which the War Kagle
; or.'shoot can maintain, has a natural
| limit which is fixed by the size of the
shoot and the rate at which it can bo followed down. So far as now shown, the
limit thus indicated is about 50,000 tons
yearly, and I must for the present advise this rate of production."
Superintendent. Hodges of the Grandby smelter, in conversation yesterday,

in heaps would commence in about two
weeks, the building of the heaps being
commenced in a day or two. The smelter is now in good shape to commence

hieu given by the .Mayor and city council,   The whole question of law, which
divided itself into several minor questions, was whether the eity had the
right to carry out the work of lowering
the streets in question in the way it did,
A number of witnesses were examined
as follows:   Por plaintiffs,  ll. Smailes,
l'. .K   Shaw, C. \\ ��� II. Sui.smite,   A.   E.
Ashcroft, D. Smith, F, \\. Rolt (Rossland ), G. B. Taylor; for tint citv, Mayor
Hardy, C. M. Shaw, and U. P. Alston,
city engineer. II. ('. Shaw, ami witli
him A. M. Whiteside, appeared for the
plaintiffs, ami P. M. McLeod, with him
A. Leamy, for the city. After evidence
had been heard ihe city solicitor moved
for a non.suit, which was not granted.
The judge, on account of the points of
law involved, preferred to reserve argument and decision to a later date, and
to submit the question to the jury, subject to the law, on the evidence'as to
faet, regarding which there was considerable conflict. The following questions were submitted to the jury : "Did
the Mayor instruct Sansome to"give the
levels to the plaintiffs?"    2. "Was  the
building damaged by the excavati if
tin streets'.'" 3. "If so, how much?"
4. "Was the building damaged by removing the stone wall on Greenwood
street?" 5. "It so, how much?" To
these the jnry replied: 1. "Yes." 2.
"Yes." 3, "$0,000." 4. "Yes." 5,
"$500." Tho questions of law, reserved
for argument, include tin- agency of ('.
W. II. Sansome, as city engineer, in giving levels, the right of the city to ileal
with the streets without a by-law,
whether or not legal grades bave been
established, the right, and font:, of action for compensation. Tho dato for argument has not yet been set,
The (ireenwood Electric Co. has now
its plant installed in the city according
to agreement, and upon location of the
arc lights will receive back its $5,000
cheque, which was put up as a guarantee
of satisfactory completion within the
specified time. A few words in the way
of describing tlie plant will be interesting and opportune.
The power house, etc., is situated on
the west side of Boundary creek, near
the skating rink The buildings consist of an engine and boiler room, the
former being 48x25 feet, and the latter
44x32. A coal hunker with a capacity
of 200 tons is in one end of the boiler room
facing tlie lire box, coal being delivered
from the company's side track to the
top of the coal bin, a distance of 70 feet,
by a track and dump car.
The power plant comprises one 250
h. p., high speed, McEwen engine,
made bv the Waterous Engine Works
Co., Brantford, Ont., of whom W. L.
Leonard is local agenl, ana is supplied
with steam from three tubular boilers
of a total capacity of 300 h. p., two of
which were supplied by tin Waterous
Co., and one by the W. Cooper Co.,
Montreal. The electrical machinery
consists of one 150 k. w. Stanley alternator and exciter, with necessary switchboard of a capacity of 3,000 lamps; also
a switchboard and step-up transformer
for lighting Ihe town of Plnenix, four
ami one-half miles from the power house,
this electrical equipment being supplied
hy the Royal Electric Co., of  Montreal.
The street mains are divided into various cirttuits, the circuit being taken
direct from the switchboard at a pressure of 2,500 volts, and is transformed
down to 104 volts before being distributed to the low tension wires witli
which the house connections are made.
Al present there are seven200undsixl00
light transformers erected,principally in
the alleyways, thus to a large measure
reducing the number of unsightly looking poles ami cross-wires on the main
streets. Extra transformers will be
erected as the demand increases. The
bulk of material lias been supplied by
the Kootenay Electrical Supply ,v Construction Co. of Nelson, who recently
installed a similar system in that city.
1'p to the present 1.200 electric lights
have been Installed. Six arc lights for
street lighting will be strung in the centre ol the streets. The mains to PhflB-
nix consist of three No. li bare copper
wires, with provision for another set
of wires on tlie same poles. A right of
of way 200 feet has been cleared between
the two places to prevent shutdowns by
reason of trees falling on the wires.
The system has been installed under the
supervision of W. P. Dickson, electrical
engineer, and seems to give general satisfaction to consumers. Everything has
been well and substantially done in connection with the plant, and in accord
ance with the representations of the
promoters.

with the United States Geological Survey, and for years an experl in mining
circles in California, plating the figure at $2,300,000, and (ieorge N. Wright,
postmaster at the new field, positively
that it was not less than $3,500,000.

Sea. Kotzebue Bound is on the north

In Memoriam.
The following beautiful tribute to our own dead soldiers in
South Africa appeared in the Province on the 22nd inst., and is
worthy of reproduction:
In the hearts of the people of British Columbia joy at the relief of
Ladysmith is overshadowed by the sail news that ihe life blood of British
Columbian sons has been spilled in the cause of the Empire.
The fortunes of war? Yes, lint the fact that they who go to light for
their country take their lives in their hands makes thai which has happened none the less terrible. It seems only yesterday since tlie people of
the Coast stood bareheaded in the falling rain, with tears in their eyes
and cheers in their throats, bidding their boyB God speed, All knew of
the hell anil horror that lay before them, bul in every heart was a hope so
strong as to be almost a conviction thai, it would hit only a title while before they would come back. The South African veldt might he stained
red witli the blood of others, hut not of our own���surely none of our own.
So we all thought and so we all felt as the train rolled slowly out,
There were weeping eyes that day and grieving hearts ; yet the hope that
springs eternal softened the pangs of parting, and dried the streaming
eyes. Ami now the tears must flow afresh, and the sorrow-stricken hearts
will bleed anew, for some of those, at least, who went forth so bravely will
never return. The air is heavy with the sobs of weeping women, and sad
with a bitterness that cannot he comforted.
One thought alone comes to console the suffering in this hour of affliction. If our sons have tlied, they have died the bravest, of all bravedenths
in a noble cause���the cause of liberty and humanity, They havi done
their part like heroes, bravely, honestly, ami well in upholding the British
Empire and the supremacy of liritisli arm*. And since men must die, JJ
how can men die better? *
To-day the people of Vancouver ami Victoria are united in a common *
grief, and wrapped about them is the warm personal sympathy of till the <��
people of the west. The graves of those of us who have gone down be- W
neath the guns of the enemy will never, perhaps, he bedewed by tears of 3/
loving recollection, or marked by the blossoms with which tho living love S
to bedeck the last earthly resting place of their dead; but their memories $
will linger long in'our hearts, growing tenderer with the years, and hal- \i/
3J lowed by the thought that they died for their country atduty'ssacred call.  $

ROSSLAND .BUSINESS MEN
WUl Give Ho Credit to Any One In Case of a
Strike or Lockout.
With one exception the Rossland business firms signed the following agreement, which has been published in the
Rossland Miner. There are 64 names
to the document:
"We, the undersigned merchants and
others, doing business in the city of
Rossland, in view of the partial closing
down of the mines, and realizing that in
the event of a general strike or lockout
of the miners in the Rossland camp, we
should not be able to continue the system of credifnow in vogue, have agreed
and do hereby give notice that Bhould
such a calamity as foreshadowed occur,
we ahull entirely discontinue giving
credit to anyone whomsoever, and shall
sell nothing hut for spot cash.
"We are impelled to this action solely
with a view of self-protection���we might
almost say self-preservation���and because we have been advised by the banks
doing business in Rossland. and by the
wholesalers, that w i would not receive
from them such credit and accommodation as would enable us to curry on our
business on the same lilies us at present.
"We shall regret, if the necessity
arises, for us to take this step, but we
feel that it ie better for us to make this
intiiiation now than after the possible
event."	
Many years ago Queen Victoria paid a
visit to Purkburst Female Convict
Prison. As soon as bIio entered the
woman's great ward, accompanied by
Mrs. GibBon, the superintendent, a
great silence fell upon the vast assemblage of her suffering and erring sisters.
Her majesty was greatly affected. And
then an indiscribable scene ensued.
"The queen!" cried the poor convicts;
"it's the queen herself! She'll pardon
us; she'll set us free!" And, screaming
and crying, they prostrated themselves
at her feet. For a few moments the
queen lost her nerve, and begged her
attendents to clear a way for her to an
adjoining room. Half an liour elapsed.
Suddenly the door of the great room was
thrown open again, and her majesty,
with supreme dignity, with an unutterable far-awayness about her, and every j
inch a queen, walked through the
women, now hushed into awed silence, I

might have known would deprive him
of it in the same unceremonious fashion.
The Lieutenant-Governor having made
a precedent in turning Mr. Turner out,
did not fail to act on it in dealing with
his successor.
Regarding Mr. Semlin personally,
there are few who will not sympathize
with him. His short tenure of office as
Premier has been a trying one. Hib
has not been a bed of roses. He has the
respect of all Ioh political opponents as
well as his friends, who will alike credit
him with an honorable and blameless
life; but advancing years, and lack of experience in public affairs, have rendered
him unequal to the responsibilities
thrust on him by political accident.
That he will ever aspire again to till the
role iH not at all likely. We may look
for a new turn of affairs; and let us hope
that out of the chaos now reigning a
firm and stable administration will be
evolved. A coalition, party lines���
anything is preferable to the present*political sitiation, which may be described
as a nebulous mass, or aggregation of
irreconcilable elements, with no political cohesion or guiding principles other
than personal preferment.

THE GOVERNMENT'S DEFEAT.
It was not the unexpected that happened this time. It was evident to all
for months past that the defeat of the
Semlin Government was certain. It
was numerically and politically weak.
There were only two men of political ability in it iri the
first place, Martin and Cotton, and
these two were so diametrically opposed
to each other in method and temper-
ment, and everything else, that any permanent cohesion was out of the question. When Martin was kicked out,
while it temporarily relieved the Government of a certain amount of odium on
account of his presence, it really weakened the Government very much. With
all his faults the ex-Attorney-General
has force and resourcefulness, which
found vent in action of some kind, even
though his energy was mischievous at
times. Cotton, on the other luiud, is was discussed to the exclusion of a
subtle-minded, and a lover of indirect | other topics. The sitting rooms am 1 Hi
and circuitous methods.    With a pliable
THE LATEST COUP D'ETAT.
With the stirring news of British victories and Boer defeats in South Africa,
comes sensational information in regard
to the political situation from Victoria���
Semlin's dismissal, and tho calling in of
Jos. Martin to form an administration.
Wi.en Turner was dismissed the Province was startled to learn that Hon.
Robert Beaven had been sent for; but
that departure from beaten constitutional paths was scarcely more remarkable
than what has now occured. Mr. Martin as Premier in alliance with .lames
Dunsmuir will take away tho breath nf
the people. Almost anythingelse might
have been suggested as a possibility before that. If the Lieutenant-Governor
had planned the coup he could not have
succeeded better. Its suddeness and
unexpectedness are positively startling.
Our Victoria correspondence this
week, which is not published on account of largely dealing with the rumors
in anticipation of what has taken place,
gives some interesting particulars. The
interest in the war for the time Vicing
subsided,   and   the    political  situation

cabinet at his disposal he was much
more at ease after ridding himself of his
pugnacious opponent, and with characteristic industry and assiduity set at
work to hatch out schemes for the future; but with little success. While
most people admire hiB ability and mobility he failed to inspire that confidence
necessary to ensure the stability of the
Government. Mr. Higgins, soured by
his failure to' secure a portfolio, which
was his heart's desire, deserted the Government simultaneously with Mr. Martin, and these two men in opposition
proved to be dangerous enemies.    ���
Practically, the Government was defeated at the opening of the House, and
only eked out a precarious existence by
the aid of the Speakers vote. When Prentice began to crack his whip in defiant
independence, there were ominous signs
of early dissolution. For several weeks
defeat was inevitable. The session has
been anomalous in its proceedings, tempestuous in the extreme, and barren of
results. The finale has come. Mr.
Semlin has been dismissed, an ignominy
he should have spared himself and his
colleagues by immediate resignation.

lobbies of the Driard were suggestive of
the Russell House at Ottawa during a
busy session, it appears that when. Mr.
Semlin waited on his Honor he had a
coalition to propose. His Honor objected and dismissed him. In the
House on Tuesday, a resolution was
passed condemning the Lieutenant-
Governor for his action the curious feature of it being that three of the members of the Opposition, who had previously voted to defeat Semlin, voted
again'declaring that he had the confidence of the Legislature���a most incomprehensible proceeding.
Why the usual constitutional course
was not followed, that of calling on the
recognized leader of the Opposition, is
not explained. Because he was formerly dismissed is no reason for passing
him over now. Certainly it cannot be
said that Jos. Martin represents any important following in the House or in the
country. However, the Lieutenant-
Governor has a theory of his own, and
has evidently decided to make precedents where they do not exist. At the
time of writing it is not known whether j Nelson. Tbi
Martin will be able to form a ministry | league throu
he can succeed and carry on the business of the country until the elections
are over.    He will have at least had the
i satisfaction    of   downing, for the time
being, his ancient enemy Cotton, and of
j ranking   among the   Premiers   of the
Province.   In any event, it means kick-
j ing up a most awful row in the Province
I for a month or two, and adding to tha
suspense which already exists.   The situation is the most remarkable and inex-l
plicable ever known in this, or, possibly,
any other Province in the Dominion.

thai there are about 800,000 acres of as

no wonder the rush has commenced.

A Letter Written to a Financial Agent
In the East Respecting the Situation
in British Columhia���The Trouble
There Rather Than Here.
The following is a copy nf a letter
written to a financial man in Montreal,
the representative ot New York capital,
in reply to a long letter declaring n
"deal oft" on account of this Province
having got. a "black eye" in the east.
My Dkah :
I am duly in receipt of your favor of
the 18th of February, in whiob tlie situation In the east in regard to British Columbia mining investments is so fully,
and I was going to say, lugubriously,
outlined. "B. C. has received," you
lay, "a terrible black eye," and you re \
fer to the effect of the closing down of
the War Eagle mine at Rossland as superinducing this state of affairs, or at
least as a strongly contributing cause,
along with the other close downs. I
note what you say that, as a consequence, any hope of our negotiations
coming to a successful termination is out
of the question for the present.
I am quite willing to believe all you
say, and have no any particular hope of
changing the situation by anything I
have to remark. Nevertheless a local
knowledge of the situation must impress
any one that the feeling in the east is
grossly exaggerated, and highly imaginative���hysterical, indeed, to some extent. The closing down of tlie War
Eagle has been a most unfortunate affair; but viewed at its worst, the circumstances connected with itshould not form
a criterion by which to judge of the whole
of the mining resources of the interior
of British Columbia, any more than the
existence of summer is to be assumed by the presence of
one swallow. If it were not for the war,
and the general slump in stocks (as a
consequence), the closing down of the
War Eagle would have been merely a
circumstance, and would only have
affected our mining stocks by the drop
of u point or two. Under ordinary conditions it could not have affected our
credit in tlie least. There are one or
two things I wish to point out. Your
eastern markets are, and have been for
some time, apart altogether from the
situation in B, C, in a nervous ami panicky condition, and when something like
the War Eagle trouble occurs it becomes
unduly excited and everyone endeavors
to unload. Hence those who have invested lose heavily, or, as you state,
"thousands are penniless" as a consequence. The War Eagle and Centre
Star are as good to-day as ever they
were; and people out here have every
confidence in the properties as mines.
The fault, if any, has lain in their manipulation ; and right here let me impress
on you this fact: that four-fifths of the
responsibility for the present condition
of things roBts with the stock brokers
and promoters of the east, who have
persistently "boomed" our mines irre-
respeclive of individual merits and when
the signs of reaction come they are the
first to weaken and break the market
by unloading. The trouble is not in I
British Columbia al all. Mines are going on steadily developing, and the prospects were never so blight as at the present time.   The   mine owners are,  as a i
rule, conservative iind honest, but in
many instances they are roped into an
implied confirmation of the statements
of stock brokers by a silence which,
though often painful, cannot very well
be broken. So far us the Boundary is
concerned the industry is generally in a
healthy condition. Of the Rossland
camp, leaving out the labor troubles,
which are contributing to I he close down
of some of the mines there, the same
may truthfully he said; in the Slocan,
the outlook is of the most hopeful character now that the labor question is settled. There is nothing in all this country to justify the feeling and situation
you describe except, the machinations
of your own stock manipulators in the
east.
I go farther and say that there never
was a time in our history when investments in this country were safer and
promised bigger returns. Now is the
time to buy, when stocks tire low, and
properties may be obtained on easy
terras. I say this honestly, knowing
the situation, The great trouble with
the eastern investor, he will never
loosen up until there is.a boom and an
excitement on, and he is more apt than
not to buy at a top price, and sell at any
price when he gets frightened Mark
my words, as soon as the war is over,
and confidence is restored, there will be
a bigger movement in mines and mining
investments than there ever was before
in this country, and your friends will
he buying properties at. many times the
price for which they are now offered.
The time to make money in this country is NOW. Ten thousand dollars will
make more profit now, and go farther,
than $50,000 a year from this date.
Yours sincerely,

MEETING OF ALDERMEN.
Petitions in Favor of Anntxinp; Anaconda Representing; Over One-Half the Assessment -
City Will Take Over tlie Electric Light Plant
as Soon as Arc Lights are in Place.
There waH a full meeting of the alder-
manic board on Monday evening. Hia
Worship, the Mayor, was in tbe chair.
Thos. ,t. Ryan applied for the position
of driver of tlie hose wagon. C. A. R.
Lambly, assessor, submitted copy of tbe
assessment roll of Anaconda. Dr.
Schon, medical health officer, suggested
tbe raising of his salary lolfoO per month,
in lien of a special arrangement in regard to quarantine. The deputy provincial secretary notified the council of
tbe acceptance of A. M. Whiteside's
resignation as acting police magistrate.
Aid. Sutherland, ami sharpe reported that the electric light plant was running in gooil order. They reported in
favor of returning the cheque as soon
as the arc lights were in place. They
ftbe company) wanted the use of the
telephone poles for hanging the arc
lights. Mr. Hickaon, elei'tricioii for the
Greenwood Electric Co., suggested the
council purchasing an outfit consisting
of ammeter, fuaebox, rheostat and main
switch for the purpose of thawing out of
pipes, at a cost, of about $125. This outfit was necessary in order to gunge the
current applied to the pipes. Aid.
Sharpe notified the council that the
amount of the overdraft at the bank vas
43091.06. It was. decided to give a note
for fBOOO to cover overdraft and provide
for current expenses. The total of the
assessment of Anaconda was shown to he
$45,-125, and the petition in favor of annexation represented over half, or $28,-
250. Tlie mutter was discussed at some
length, the majority of the council expressing themselves in favor of annexation. Aid. Sharpe looked upon it in
the light of a quid pro quo. It was a
question of balancing benefits. The
water was a consideration. A number
of accounts were passed.
The appointment of a driver for the
hose wagon was left to the chief and the
tire and light committee, subject to tho
approval of the council. The offer of the
city engineer as to salary was accepted.
lie was instructed to g" ahead and ram-
plete the estimate of cost for a sewerage
system, A vote of thanks was passeil
in favor of the (ireeuwooil Electric Co.,
for supplying free light lo the Eire Department.   The council then adjourned.

PICKED   SPECIMENS.
Ooru Paul, while Btill a lad, first gained
prominence as a fearless treker and
hunter. He could tramp along the
veldt all day, driving his string of oxen,
and then Bpend all night in stalking
wild animals. When still in Mb teens
he killed a full grown lion with nothing
but a hunting knife. Now that he is
in his old age, he can still bend a rifle
barrel over his knee, or fell a bullock
with his fist.
Joseph Chamberlain's distaste for
physical exercise is as marked as his
passion for orchids. At no period in his
life has he indulged in any kind of sport
and walking is his special aversion.
Practically the longest walk he takes
when in London is from Prince's Gardens to his clubs in Pall Mall or St.
James street. To his sedentary habits
he adds a love of smoking black cigars
and drinking strong tea.
Governor Brady, of Alaska, whose recent visit to Washington in the interests
of his Territory lias attracted considerable comment, waB a homeless little waif,
standing on a North River wharf in
New York City, twenty years ago. He
was found there by the Children's Aid
Society, and with many others was sent
to the country. The story of his life
reeds like a romance, and yet it differs
very little from that of tlie lives of a
great many other representative Americans, who have arisen from obscurity to
eminence in the various walks of life.
After securing an education he entered
into missionary work among the natives
of Alaska, where he has toiled for many
years. Few men, therefore, are more
competent to speak with authority upon
the topics connected witli that couutry.
Senator W. A. Clark, of Montana,
whose seat is threatened by serious
charges of political corruption, has been
a remarkably successful man from several points of view. He is worth, say
$50,000,000, his property consisting of
sixteen mines, banks, and a Democratic
newspnper. He is past Bixty years of
age, Htrong, erect, vigorous, and with a
shock of hair whose aggressive redness
refuses to be tempered by tlie gray of
advancing years. It iB not generally
known, but he is a graduate of Columbia College, where lie took a course in
mineralogy and chemistry before he entered seriously into mining. In this n-
Bpect lie is like J. H. De Lamar, who
studied metallurgy before the mast and
made millions in Arizona and Mexico.
Should the charges instituted against
him fail lie will have reached the heights
of ordinary ambition���an ambition
which he doubtless did not dare to entertain in the old days, when he was
peddling clocks and gewgaws to the Indians and miners of the far Northwest.
The "expert" who talks glibly of "my
people" and desires long time bonds on
anything he can get, is numerous nowadays, says the Mineral Wealth of Northern California. The mine owner has a
right to know that "my people" are not
myths, and have the means to carry out
the promises of the "expert." Promiscuous bonding of properties with no
purchaser in sight is bad for the property, bad for the owner, and bad for the
district. The bond, in all probability,
will be offered at a score of varying
prices to a score of operators, and will
finally be forfeited, leaving the owner
with "failure to sell" against the property, and the gamut of prices at which
the property was offered to face at every
turn.
Jack.���"I hear you lost a lot of money
on Wall street while you were drunk?"
Tom.���"I wasn't drunk, but the stocks
I bought took a drop too much."
Horace Greeley, the famous editor,
had thrashed over the question of women's rights with an able representative
of their sex, and wound up with the contention that in times of war women were
quite useless. "What would you do,"
he demanded, "in the event of civil
war?" "Just what you would do, Mr,
Greeley," replied his opponent promptly; "I would Btay in my office and write
articles urging other people to go and
fight."
Colonel Count Georges de Villeboie
Marettil is said to be the brains of tlie
Boer army. He recently received the
thanks of the Transvaal Government,
in its official paper, for the victory at
Colenso. The count, who is General
Joubert's chief of staff, served in the
French army through the Franco-Prussian war, rising to the command of a
regiment in the Foreign Legion, and
was afterwards with the French forces
in Tunis, Tonquin and tlie Western
Soudan. Two years ago he threw up his
commission because he wns not promoted
to the rank of general. From Dr. Leyds
he procured the rank of lieutenant-general in the Boer army. He had said
that the Boer country "offered every advantage for a campaign of surprises, and
a war of ambuscades." It is reported
that more than two hundred former
officers of the French army are fighting
on the side of tlie Boers.
In an address entitled "Stepping
Stones to Success in business," Andrew
Carnegie said in New York the other
day: "In these days we hear a lot about
poverty. The cry goes up to abolish poverty, but it will indeed be a sad day when
poverty is no longer with us. Where
will your inventor, your artist,
your philanthropist, your reformer���in fact, anybody of note���come from
then ? They all come from the ranks
of the poor. God does not call his great
men from the ranks of tho rich." And
he added: "Of every thousand dollars
given to charity nine hundred and fifty
might as well be thrown into the sea. It
is bad policy to a'd tlie submerged man.
Give your aid to tlie man who is lighting witli his head above water."
Edmund Clarence Stedman, the banker-poet, sold his seat on tlie New York
Stock Exchange a fortnight ago for $30,-
000. With only his personal business
interests to be attended to, Mr. Stedman will have much more leisure than
formurly, and this additional time lie
intends to devote to literature, lie lias
nearly completed his "American Anthology," a large volume upon which he
bus been engaged witli a corp of assistants for nearly three years, and which
may be regarded as a rounding out of
bis critical work on poetry. Mr. Stud-
man began business iu New York in
lHlil, at tlie time of the speculative activity in oil, and prospered from the
start. He soon formed a partnership
under the style of Stedman, Ewell & Co.,
tlie firm consisting of four partners by
the end of 1865. Subsequently Mr.
Ewell retired to form tlie linn of Ewell
& Stout, and Mr. Stedman reorganized
the old firm under tlie name of E. C.
Stedman & Co. This firm was dissolved
in 1883, since which year Mr. Stedman
has had no partners.

DEADWOOD, the latest town to seek puhlic favor, is situated in the
heart of Deadwood Camp, about three miles from Greenwood, and an
equal distance from the 1!. 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.

RELIEFOFLADYSMITH
News of the relief of Ladysmith has
come at last. Up to the time of going
te press, we have heard no particulars
further than that General Buller had
accomplished his task and hud entered
Ladysmith with comparatively little
loss of life.
A. K. Stuart is in receipt of advices
that a cake sent to him by a friend in
Germany has reached Rossland, whither
it was consigned as the supposed nearest
point of delivery In view of the fact
that over 12 months ago .Mr. Stuart had
the steamship bill of lading in ids possession, it is safe to assume that it has
been sidetracked somewhere in tlie
meantime. It had been given up long
ago by the consignee as one of the pleasurable anticipations of life hopelessly
doomed to disappointment. Under the
circumstances it was natural to suppose
it had been captured en route by a force
of trainmen, or had mouldered and had
been forcibly ejected from the way
freight. Its early arrival in Greenwood
sweet and sound, however, is among tlie
strong probabilities of tlie season, and
the anticipated social ravages on 100 lbs
of German cake of rare quality is already
causing some apprehension.
Mayor Hardy returned from Victoria
on Friday, via Rossland, where he was
attending court. So far as the (iovern-
ment is concerned the delegates from
Greenwood were wholly successful in
their mission. A definite promise of a
Supreme Court, Registry in (ireenwood
was received, and an order-in-council
was passed confirming it. One thousand dollars was placed in the estimates
for the completion of the White's Camp
road, and provision made for a bridge
across tlie North Fork of the Kettle
river, giving connection with Eholt and
Greenwood. Mr. Hardy said political
matters were very much mixed, and a
coalition was among the probabilities
when he left. Regarding tlie case of
Rendell & Co. he bad little to say, except that he had every confidence in tlie
city winning en the law.
C. S. Galloway, president of the
Board of Trade, returned on Tuesday
from Victoria, after several weeks' visit
with his family. While there he acted
with Mayor Hardy in connection with
the Supreme Court Registry, und says it
is settled to be in Greenwood if tlie new
turn of affairs does not upset the arrangement. Mr. Galloway says business iB quie.t everywhere as well as in
Greenwood.
Alex. Donkey was accidentally killed
at Day & McDowell's logging camp,
Camp MeKinney, Saturday evening.
He was crushed by a heavy Iol' rolling
over him, and died shortly after being
taken to camp, Tbe deceased resided in
(ireenwood last year and for a while was
employed bv the corporation,    lie leaves
a wife and large family of small children
who are living ut present in Spokane.
(i. L, Fraser, muster mechanic of tlie
B. A, 0. corporation, is in tlie city, Ibis a friend of Mr. Johns, superintendent
of the Sunset, and is looking over tlie
properties in tlie camps about (ireenwood. He has visited Deadwood and
reports himself greatly pleased with all
he saw. It is not improbable that Mr.
Fraser may establish himself in business
here.
Beattie, Muir oi Co., men's itirnish-
ers and tailors, have moved into their
new quarters on Copper street, next to
Bank of B. N. A. They carry only men's
goods, and are making a specialty of
this line.
Successful work has been done during
the past few days in thawing out the
water pipes by electricity. This method
seems to involve less labor and leas expenditure than any other.
