Victoria, Feb. 14—Patterson having
taken Monroe's place mi the Kiiiini
Island committee the Inquiry was
resumed and Chairman Garden ruled
that the committee should ascertain
every (net connecled with the deal,
Bodwell said he wished in Unit case to
add something to hi-i former statement. Anderson objected to Bodwell
divulging anything that had passed
between them ns solicitor and client.
Bodwell Baid he would not do 60, hut
had Larson's permission to toll all that
had passed so far as he was concerned.
Bodwell stated that alter an order-in-
council had been passed, he hnd gone
to Montreal to see Hays about the
bargain. He told Hays that Larson
wanted nothing, but il the U.T. P.
liked to give any compensation to
Anderson it might do so. Anderson
was in Montreal at the time and Bodwell understood some arrangement
was made in his tavor. Bodwell saw
Larsen later and the latter absolutely
refused to hoar ol any compensation,
and when the final bargain was made
with Morse, Larson settled with Anderson personally. Green was next
called and submitted to a long examination by MncDoniild. The chairman said that some ol the hitter's
questions were not portinout. Green
said thoy were impertinent, Beyond
some, personal matters his evidence
brought out no now evidence, ol importance. The committee will meet
again tonight.

This year will probably have the
best record in bona lido milling in the
history ot North Kootenay. It. is
stated there will be a rush ol prospectors into the Big Bond this spring
nnd there is ample Held for prospecting there, especially on Downie creek
nnd its forks.
It is likely considerable development work will be done on Laforme
creek. The Revelstoke and McCul-
lough Creek Hydraulic Mining Co.,
and the American Mining Company,
will both operate their properties. The
Duquesne Mining Company will also
resume work on Smith Creek.
A deal is on with Seattle parties (or
the Evu, on Fish Creek, and il it goes
through the stamp mill will be much
enlarged. It is understood good jiro-
gross is being made with raising English capital to work the Oyster-Criterion," where there will also be
considerable enlargement ul tho mill.
Judge Curtis expects to return to
resume work on the Goldfinch on Fish
Creek. The Silver Dollar mill will be
installed and it is expected the property will be added to tho producing
list. Work will bo pushed on the
Mammoth, Beatrice, Del Kay and
other p.-opertieB.
At Ferguson the Silver Cup will
resume shipments and the mill may
be started up. The Broadview and
other properties will be worked. At
Trout Lake the Lucky Boy and probably the Horseshoe will be operated.
At llecillewaet the Empire Zinc
Company have a bond ou the Round
Hill group and it is expected they will
take it up.
At Bear creek work will he started
on the J. M. Kellie property on Cop-
pcrstain Mountain,
At Golden, Capt. Armstrong and
associates are developing the biggest
showing of load-zinc ore yet lound in
that cuuntry. The property is at
Spilliiuiiclieiie mountain, 42 miles
north of Golden, and is remarkably
well situated lor cheap mining and
transportation,
On Canyon Creek, at Golden, the
Laborers' Co-Operative Mining Co
intend opening their Canyon Creek
property at u low level and will build
a wagon road to it. The same company will continue development on
their lee Hiver property, whero, it is
stated, they have a line showing ol
gold-copper ore. Several deals are on
with good promise ol their being taken
up, in which eitse mining in North
Kitutenay will see a return to its old-
time uotivity.

THE MINING OUTLOOK,
The mining outlook has never been
better or brighter than now, and
Nortn K'xteiiay can with confidence
look lorwtrd to an active season. This
il due to tilt high prices of the metals,
the reduction ol smelter charges and
the fact that development is proving
up extensive bodies of ore all over the
country.
CITY BY-LAWS.
The matter uf city by-laws brought
up at last meeting ol the city council
by Aid. Aliraluinisiiii and by him
clearly placed before Ihe nueting is
deserving ot attention. Aa the bylaws now are they consist ol ilitcon-
neoted regulations passed spasmodically by the city since its incorporation
over seven years ngo. Conditions
have changed, mistakes have been
rectified, and ninny of the old by laws
could well stand revision to hringi
them up todatc. Any citizen wanting
to know the by-law on any particular
question, cannot conveniently look it
up for himself, and if everybody troubled the cily clerk about these things
lie would have time tor little else. It
is to the interest ol the city to have
its by-laws in tlie best and n ost complete form, revised up to date, and
available to any one who wanla to see
tin-in. As a matter p( luct every
citizen should have a copy ol the city
by-laws and become acquainted with
them so that lie may know the regulations he is supposed to comply with
and obey them. It it up to the bylaw committee to get the city by-laws
in good shape. The past two councils
repeatedly referred to the necessity of
revising ami consolidating the by-laws
and it is time it was done.
THE CAVES
The publicity given the Dentscl
man Caves during the jiatt year ha
had its effect, and already hundreds ol
people nre planning to visit them during the coming season. Thin emphasises the necessity ol urgent steps
being taken by tho Dofninion Government to make provision Ior a good
road from the railway to tht caves,
and to arrange for accommodation
for tourists in the basin. Without
theit provisions people cannot reasonably be induced or expected to visit
these caves, which arc now admitted
to be one ol the finest attractions of
nature in the mountains of liritish
Columbia. The most should be made
ol them, Cougar basin and the caves
form a grauder national attraction
than the National I'ark ul llanlf and
quite ai much attention   should   lie
PROVINCIAL
LEGISLATURE
Victoria, ll. C, Feb, 8, 1008,
This (Thursday) afternoon's, proceedings commenced by llie Hi,use
going into committee on the bill to
regulate the Provincial Blcotiom Aot.
An extremely warm discussion then
took place, tlie proposed reduction to
ifOO liinling tome supporters on both
side* ol the House, others favoring
Mr. Bowser's compromise of $100,
while the majority opposed boib bill
and amendment.
Mr. Bowser (Vancouver) moved  his
amendment lirst, but it did not, at all
suit the views ol Hawthorekhwaite
CN'anaimoj the parent ol the bill. Thc
financial experience of the mehiber lor
Niinainio hnd been such, one tethered
from his remarks, that he lound it
just ns hard to make $11111 without
working for it as to make $2110.
Hon. II. (1. i'litlow said that he
would test the feeling ol the House
by moving that the oumiiiiltet rise.
John Houston (Nelson) objected to
rushing the matter in litis way, aa it
did not give a chance for honorable
members to talk,
I Ion. R, McBride (Dewdney) wnt
ppnsed tu any handicap, but he bad
yet to leant ol a single case where
having lo deposit $'200 bud deterred a
ciindidiiie f,inn running, Still, he
disapproved ol the prircipiil ol n
deposit,
II. a. Miiedotiiilil (Rossland) ap-
provtil the Premier's id. ns, und Invored
the House with his own tllOOl'iea as to
the advisability ol doing away altogether with n deposit, and miming
elections on a new plan.
The Attoriiey-Generiil, wllh a sardonic grin, oordlully concurred in the
views nl tho lender ol the Opposition,
but hinted at the dillicully of framing
legal machinery to pul the [airy
dream into practice.
Thc member tor Nnnainin joylully
concurred in the Opposition leader's
views. Why, ho said, such a scheme
as proportionate representation would
give labor live repri'scntalivcs iu the
House,
His hearers (ailed to show any appreciation of this alluring prospect,
and the member [or Delta contradicted
llim llntly.
"Dues tho member (or Delta represent a minority?" asked Parker Williams, "Nu," snapped the redoubtiihlo
.lohn, fiercely, "I don't have to."—
(Laughter.)
John Houston rose and roasted the
member Ior Dolta. He had never expected to hear a British subject advocating a German system ol elections,
He daicd Mr. Oliver to go into Delta
and advocate such a change; if ho did,
the loyal British farmers would soon
show him his way home again.
The member for Delta eat in
dazed condition at this fierce attack
upon his national sentiments, and the
debate went on furiously without him,
Munro (Chilliwack) Davidson (Slocan)
Tanner (Suuiiicli), Patterson (Islands)
and Hull and McNiven (Victoria)
spoke, and then John Houston reduced the House to tears of deriBion
and mirth by pathetically relating
how he had always had to borrow the
money to pay for his election deposit,
and how, on the last occasion, when
he really had hoped for some aid Irom
the Conservative party; that organization had wickedly tried to stab him in
the buck by putting up the deposit
lor his oppuuent.   (Loud laughter.)
This piece o[ autobiography was too
much for the House, which at once
voted on the Finance Minister's
motion to rise. The motion carried
by 10 to 15, and this kills a very
absurd iiu-usiiie.
Mr. Dtvidton (Slocan) then moved
the second reading ol ilie Eight-hour
Smeller Bill. He spoke at much
length, but was heard with little
sympathy by the House, owing to the
[act that the eight-hour day already
txists, by amicable agreement between
employers nnd employed, at most of
the provincial smelters. It was felt,
therefore, that Mr. Davidson's bill vvat
Unnecessary and strife-provoking: and
no one objected when, at the close nf
his remarks, the Premier moved tlie
adjournment ol the debute.
The lloii-e then went into committee on the McGill University Bill,
and was instantly confronted, before
the members had fairly got into their
seats, liy a motion ol Stuart Hender-
ton 'Yale, that the committee rise, as
there was a meeting t,, l«- held in
Vancouver that evening on the subject.
The Government (ailed to see what
thtt had to do with the conimittM,
and a heated argument billowed, lasting over an hour. The Opposition
claimed that tbey coulil not understand the bill in three days which
had been allowed them for its consideration and it wns bemi; railroaded
through the House, anyway. I Ins the
Government, with much reaton,
denied. Finally, the mcmlier lor
Vale'l motion was  lost.     Moro  strile
followed, and the oommiltee finally
rose .mil reported progress:
The House then went Into committee on the new Registry Act, but, as
tho hour was lute, adjourned almost
Immediately,
The famous special eoiiiinittfi' on
the Knien Island investigation re
sinned dredging operations at III
o'clock this 'Nuir-day morning—hut
lound nothing.
VlOTOBtA, ft. C, Feb  10, 1006
Yesterday's proceedings opened with
a siorm.   Mr. ,f. K. Garden 'Vane
erj chairman   nf   the   Kaien   Island
special committee, rose to a question
of privilege, in regard to the (al«e and
misleading report ol tbe proceedings
ol that, committee which appeared, as
mentioned in this correspondence! in
Thursday night's Victoria Times. Mr.
Garden denounced thia journal in
scathing terms. The statement had
been actually made that the Government was trying to burke the enquiry.
This was a most deliberate falsehood.
The. Conservatives on the committee
had differed with the Liberals as to
thc order in which tht witnesses
tliould hs ciilled.   The Victoria Times
had made I his [act the basis ul atissir
ol falsehoods. The report was a disgrace to journalism, and he consider! d
that the House, in the interests ol
public decency, ihuuld have its attention (lulled lo the mutter.
Dr. Young (Atlin) introduced an
Act to amend the Placer Mining Act,
ami the inilway committee reported
on tho Coii'ii'hnn, Alberui and Fort
Rupert Railway Cn. Act, and the
Southeast Kootenny Railway Co. Act.
Tho House then went Into committee on the hand Registry Act. Thit
is in, extremity lenl-thy measure, and
very technical in chaiaoter, and the
consideration oi its various clauses
took up the better part ol the alter
noon. An important suggestion in
connection with this Aot, and one
which will be appreciated by the unfortunate layman, was mado hy Mr,
MoGowan (Vnncouvor) to the effect
that, when the bill is reported to the
House, the Attorney-General should
attach a schedule ut fees chargeable
by attorneys, tu limit them, The
bonnrnl le member stated that ho was
moved to make this suggestion by the
[act that he was inhumed that then
feet were (rum lour to sixteen times aa
large as in other provinces, and they
ought to be regulated.
The Attorney-General replied that
he would adopt tho suggestion,
Tho committee then rose and reported progress.
The House then went into committee on thc biil respecting the agreement bctweon the Provincial and
Federal Governments with icspect to
the Railwsy Belt, which was passed
and reported with amendments.
The House adjourned at 5 p. in.
till Monday.
With regard to the Midway & Vernon Railway, two highly characteristic
motions arc down on the board lor
Monday, as follows:—
Mr. Oliver on Monday next will ask
the Premier:—
1. Did the Premier or the Finance
Minister make any statement when at
Montreal or any other place, to any
person or persons in any way affecting
the question as to whether the Midway & Vernon Railway Company
were or were not entitled to a subsidy
under the terms ol the "Midway &
Vernon Subsidy Act, 1002?"
2. Ii to, what was the statement or
statements, made, and by whom and
what person ?
3. For what reason were such statement or statements made?
Mr. Hawthornthwaite on Thursday
next will move that the bill entitled
"An Act to amend the Provincial
Selections Act," be placed upon the
orders ol the day [or consideration ol
committee ot the whole House on
Thursday next.
Mr. Hawthornthwaite will move, on
consideration o[ the report or. the bill
entitled "An Act to amend the Midway & Vernon Railway Company Act
1901," to add the following new
section.—
(i. Should the Midway A Vernon
Railway Company [ail by this Act lo
obtain continuation ,,! its rights as a
laxly corporate and politic, then the
province ilinll take over any nnd all
lines o( railway constructed by the
said company, and pay all just debit
incurred lor actual construction ot
same.'

BIG MINE
New Vein Discovered on the
Del Rey.
A now vein ol free-gold quarti 5 feet
in width shooting off the main lead
hat boon discovered in the weal drilt
on tho Del Key, nnd it now being
opened up. The vein it running parallel with the (urination and nierget
into the main lead at a distanco ol 20
feet Irom tht crosscut tunnel. Tht
discovery oomet in the nature ol t surprise to the management and will increase tlie ore producing oapabilititt
ut tht property.
About a month ago thc main lead
on tho Del Key wtt tapped, tt a diB-
lance of 450 del Irom the portal ot the
5x7 crottcut tunnel, which lias since
been opened up by mttnt of drifts on
caoh side ol the crosecut. The east
drilt it now in 58 leet while the weet
drilt is opened lor a distance of 20 feet
on the mtin lead but thit drilt it in
retlity 60 feet long at it has been
turned from the main lead and mn
along the new vein lor a distance ot 40
leet, and the intention is lo drive a
crotsout and connoct again with the
mtin Itad; thit work has just been
started.
It htt been demonstrated that the
mattive body ol qutrtz 20 leet across
that compotes the main lead is rich in
the precioui yellow metal by assays ol
sample* taken from aoross itt face
which have yielded $20 in gold per
Ion, tnd another indication ol good
gold values is the pretence of quanti-
tiet of iron and galena which, in thit
camp, have been found by experience
to be very reliable. It is a true liaeure
vein cutting the formation, therefore
there it no question regarding its permanency.
It it said that another lead oi similar
proportion exittt about 100 leet further into tlie hill, but this will be
definitely known when a raise ia pul
through Irom the present working! to
tht turlact a dittance of 350 leet, at
the raise will cut through the lead ii
it it within thedittancecaloulated and
ol timiltr dip to the one on which
work is being prosecuted.
One good feature is that development now being accomplished it all
in on, and that which it being taken
out ie an atiet thtt will assist in paying, ii not fully defraying, all costt in
connection with tlie work. It it under-
stood lhat a mill will bt erected at an
early date or else arrangements made
to have the mine product treated at a
neighboring mill, but beiore ure can be
treated a tram will have to be built
(or a distance ot one-half mile to convey ore to the reduction works, which
will be dona in due coune.
Tht management ol the Northern
Mines Ltd., of Indianapolis, owner ol
the Del Key, opines that it has n property worthy of all the attention and
expenditure it can give, and will oxert
every effort in developing it to the
state where a continuous supply of ore
it available lor treatment. When this
stage-is reached, judging from present
(acts, there can be no doubts as to the
lesulte.—Camborne Miner.
effect a revolution in the treatment
of low grade ores. Such a furnace will
lie about as cheap In install as a concentrator. It will allow the treatment ol orcBthnta concentrator will
not work on.
SMELTER CHARGES.
Reduction of $3 a Ton on Lead
Ores.
The local smelters have made a cut
ol $3 per ton in freight and treatment
rates on lead orea above 20 per cent
tays the Standaid. This is the first
cut tince 1900. The former rate was
f 15 per ton, now il it $12. The moisture and "marketing" charges will still
betdded. It is supposed that the cut
htt been made because competition
from the outside it anxious to come
in, or because of the intended entrance
of the Canadian Metal Co. into tho
lead smelting field, The new rate
will prove acceptable to the producer,
and it is hoped will prove a stimulant
to the mineral production. The reduction has been a long time coming, but
it hat come at last. With lower rates
and the opportunity lor the tale oi
products hitherto unsaleable, the
future is brighter than for years.
THE MINES.

The launching ul the Dreadnaught,

lirstttagn in what the British admiralty oluimjas the greatest achievement
in  nival construction.   On October
2nd; 11)05, only a (ew days over four
mouths ago, work was commenced at
Porliiiioutb on tho vessel, tlie first of
what is to he known as the Dread
naught class.   The promise win made
then   that  she   would   be   launched
within  six  monthi.   The admiralty
have' more than  made good   their
boast,  and   Britishers  have another
cnule.for pride in their  navy.   Another 12 months, all going well, the
Dreadiiuiight will-be commissioned and
join the Atlantic Hoi I, thut beating all
previous records in battleship building
;by six month!.   There nre two reasons

Ou|»J|lructors were given every oppor-
(.unity ol learning wherein Ihe ships ol
Japan proved weak °r strong, ti the
rate might be.   The men were busy
from start to finish of tbe war, and
immediately titer the battle ol the
Sea of Japan, came home with their
data, which wot submitted with tug-
gtttiom to a special commission on
