was more, hi liiiinglv in favor of the
resolution, whioh was adopted.

vote at, vestry meetings. Two motions
on the subjects were submitted, one
by Rev. Canon Davidson, the other by
Rev, W. B. Chambers, bnt Chambers
withdrew his proposition in favor of
that of Davidson, which read as follows:
"That In the judgment of the Synod, discrimination in the church Temporalities Act of this Province excluding women of the ohuroh from mem-
beis of vestiies in this diocese should
be repealed, to which end the ollicers
of the Synod are hereby instiucleil to
lake nei'rifnl action before the Legislature of this Province for the eailiest
possible removal of the disability imposed in the existing act.*'
Upon the vote being taken the Synod
decided in favor oi   the   principle that
women should be allowed  to attend
vestries and vote if they chose,the inn-
rity being B6 against   10  clergy aud

Little things him'vo to BiiRfigu the attention of onr legislators at Victoria.
That, we snppose, is beon-u e little
Illinois come tho more readily and easily within the scope of tbelr comprehension. The Address in reply to
the Speech from the Throne ia under
illseusflion, and until the thirty-seven
members on the floor of the House are
liearil from the debate will not be cou-
eluded. The other day one Of the Ministers, Dr. McKeobnie, contributed
liis speech. Like nil others from that
side of the   House,   it   denlt with Mr.
Martin, in fact Mr. Martin is receiving more attention than the Address
itself. A very considerable portion
nf Dr. McKeobnie'h speech was devoted to that gentleman, mainly in relation to n churpe that be bad sold himself to tho Opposition. It would appear
thnt Mr. Martin had seen Mr. Uuns-
iimir, and in the course of n conversation that ensued told him thnt if the
sixteen members of tho Opposition
wonld hniiR together be would come to
their assistance in the effort to defeat
the Government. Here was a plot, 11
conspiracy, and, nliovo all else, n 10111-
pnnt, in acoordanoe with which Mr.
Mnrtin agreed to abandon his principles nnd throw in his lot with tlie
Turner party.
It is not 011 record that   Mr.   Martin
made any remark  as to   the   weather.
If he had said that  Victoria   rain   np-
penred to be  of a trifle  wottur quality
than the Vancouver   article, no   doubt
Dr. McKeobnie or sumo other Minister
would   l,,i_e  dragged   ihe  observation
into the arena and   made it serve  as 11
basis for some other   oharge ou   which
members  would be invited to  expend
their wisdom   and   eloquence.    And it
would   have   been quite   as sensible as
tho other.    For months past Mr.    Mnrtin has made no secret of his Intention
to compass the   downfall of   the   Government, if within his power.    Thnt is
his first   and   greatest   purpose ot   the
present. He, has great, faith in himself,
but he knows that his  single vote will
not outcount nineteen; be knows tbat
to be  successful   he  must woik   with
the   Opposition   and,    between   them,
harry the life nut of the   Government.
It was quite nnturnl   aud proper to intimate to the Opposition   his   willingness to assist   in   the accomplishment
nf an   object dear   to both, and   only a
Heuilin   Minister   or   supporter   eould
possess such distorted   intelligence    a
to imagine that it involved a surrender
nf nuy of   those   principles which   nre
supposed   to   be   Mr.   Martin's distiu
guisbing mark.    It was a silly issue to
raise, yet the House   took   it   seriously
under discussion,   to the great   Iohs   of
time that miRht have been more profitably employed.
Another   trumpery matter   that   has
been magnified beyond it 11   reason   was
Mr. Martin's journey to the Capital on
the first day nf tho   session.    The  cir-
cumstaneus   of Ihat   affair,   it   would
seem, nre also to be taken as  evidence
of a conspiracy   between   Mr.    Mint in
and   Mr.    Dunsmuir.    Those   ciichiii-
stnnces begin   back   with   Mr.   Wells,
who says that a short   time   before the
meeting   of  the Legislature Mr.    Martin aBBuro-1 Him Hint nothing would be
done   on   the   first   day   except   to go
through the ordinary routine.    In consequence of this  assurance Mr.   Wells
did not   put   in   an appunrnnce at   tbe
opening, while ho  discovered later ou
Hint Mr. Martin hnd   huiried   through
by   means     of     special    OOnvejBUOBS,
Plainly, according to Ministerial opinion, here was a deep   laid plot   to  defeat tbe Government,   Mr. Wells must
be n very simple  poison if he did  nol
know that Mr. Martin was not in 11 position to give  lilm   nny   sort of assuv-
mice as to the  proceedings of   tho first
day or  any   day.    And if Mr.    Mnrtin
was hurriedly summoned   nud   reached
the Capital by the only conveyances
thut were available, we do nol see how
the circuniHtnnce can afford Mr. Wells
uny ground of complaint. Yet this
iitTntr, too, has.been advanced to the
dignity of a great public question.   We
suppose it ts tj bo fallen as the measure "I Ministerial capacity.

Colonists cinilil not sue what they had
t" gain bv throwing in iheir ".fortunes
with the Dominion, They would
liiii'dh he Newfoundlanders if they
could see. But even thoy could be
Hindu sensible of the advantages after
the event, when they saw their island
in process of transformation under the
Influence of Canadian enterprise
Their insular prejudices would disappear in  tho  light of the development
Hull  would follow.

The Vietoyia Colonist is correcting
some little misstatements mode by Mr.
Martin. He said the oilier day that
Mr, Semlin had repiesented bis present
constituency for thirty years without
a defeat. Tho Colonist points out Hint
ho was defeated twice, in lN7fi and
again iu 1879, We do not wonder at
Mr. Marlins mistake when we find
him astray as to bis own political record.    In Ihn   same   speech he spoke   of
himself ns having entered political life
fifteen years ago. He entered political
life, ns ineuib.r for Portage la Prairie
in the Manitoba Legislature, in February, 1878���seventeen years ago, not fifteen.

is beiiiK dope. It is shipping tirade,
for a solid width of .0 feet and is better than iu nuy of the uppfr levels.
On tbe OSS-foot level also, drifts an-
running west along the ledae from the
shaft nud have shown two parallel
payatreaks, one on each wall. That ou
the toot wall is 85 feet wide, while
the hanging wall streak is known to
extend the full width of the drift, not
having been crosscut towards the foot
wall. The ore has been atoped iu
places on this level to a width of ilo
feet, liaises are being made from lhe
:',T0 to the ".'."iii-foot level, one east and
one west of tbo shaft, the purpose
being to explore new ground and on_n
it for sloping. Bmh are in shipping
ore. Tne cutting of a .-tation at lhe
s?."i-foot level is almost completed and
it is the intention to resnmt sinking.

Kossland,Thursday. ��� A second ledge
has been struck in a orossoul from the
south drift of tlm Gertrude. Ore was
enoonntored when the crosscut, which
runs west to a point ,"i0 oi 60 feet

feet from tbe drift, and ore bns continued for the two succeeding feet,
This cross drift is believed by .1 r>hn .1.
Handeman, tho engineer in charge, to
be following the course of a ledge,
which ii a feeder to the one encountered in the crossont run northwesterly
from the south drift. The ore has im-
rrnved until it is nf shipping grade,
having ijooil gold nnd copper values
in the northwest crosscut the fool

has been started along it in a course a
little west of south The ore averages
three feet wide, nnd is widening nil
