Tlio following vory interesting correspondence, tbe publication of which
caused u sensation on tlio Const, explains itself:
Provincial Socretary'B Office,
Victoria, July 8, 189.
Dear Mr, Martin:���Yours of the 1st
reached nm this p. 111. In it you sny
yon think it would be more satisfactory
if 1 would put in writing tbe ground
upon whioh I asked you to resign vour
seat in my government.
1 think I mentioned your absence
from your ollice.

MARTIN'S REPLY.
Hon. Mr. Martin   replied  nt  length
ns follows.
July 5, 1899.
lion. 0. A. Semlin, Premier:
Dear Mr. Semlin:���Yonr letter of
the ilrd instant, in which yon givo
yonr reasons for requesting mo to re.
sign, duly received,
The first reason is my absence from
office Allow me to point out thnt.
this is the first occasion in   whioh yon
have found i.nilr W1M tun roi -
though I have from the very
tended tn my private practice.
baa been understood that 1
I ont calling upon me for an explanation. This it seems to mo shows
that you aro hard up for a reason to
ask for my resignation when you would
fall hack upon ono of this kind. 1 was
probably indiscreet at Rossland, and
1 should have been very lumpy to hnve
given you a full explanation of what
occurred tbere had you asked for tbe
same, and I feel sure after hearing
my explanation you would have felt-
that it wns entirely out of placo to request my resignation on a ground of
that kind.
Now, Mr. Senilin, Having dealt
with the threo reasons given by you
for asking my resignation, I beg to
repeat in writing what I stated to you
ou Saturday���that 1 did not propose
to resign my position in the cabinet,
and I oharge that the reasons givou hy
yon nro onlv pretences, nnd that you
have been induced to ask for my resignation by Mr. Cot ton, that you and Mr.
Cotton have entered into a conspiracy j
to wreck the present government and
drive from it all thu Liberals, with
tlie idea of forming a Conservative
government,
1 am informed aud believe thnt you
have already negotiated with Mr. Hel-
meken ami Mr. lliggius with a view
ot their entering a government of this
kind. t know that, yon have uot consulted either Dr. MoEeobnie or Mr.
Hume with regard to asking for my
resignation. This contemplated course
on the part of Mr. Cotton and yourself is, in my opinion, a gross outrage
upon tho electors of this province. Dominion party lines were expressly ig- j was 0Illy ]ast November that tbey were
nored hy tbe late government and   the ; coriimmloo   shiupmg  coal  and
present government parties In the last -r

I entirely nullify the  voto  which   took
| place on   July !) last.    I  feel   satisfied
: that your attempt   to carry out a conspiracy of   this nature   will   not meet
j with success.    At any rate you can de-
1 pend upon every effort being made  by
i Uie to frustrate it, and   I   feel   certain
that the Conservatives of the Province
who voted for tbo late opposition will |
be entirely opposed   to   any   such   attempt.    I bave urged yon   to   call   the
supporters nf tbe   government  in   the
house together  in   canons to consider
i the Deadman's Island question, which

Mr. Jaffray says that owing to the,

Was to inform tho delegation that the
Statements mndo nt that meeting and

were incorrect, arid that he wns simply expressing hiH own opinion, instead of tlu opinion of the government.
Ho undertook to speak in tho name
Of the government. You will remember that in this connocclion Mr. Cotton telegraphed Mayor Garden that
tha Rovnrnnienthnd deo-ded to determine the question of title of Tlend-
considered
until the
party became strong enough to deal
with the question upon its merits.
Vou are, therefore, tho Premier of this
Provinoe only by sufference, and in demanding my resignation yon do not
command n majority of the supporters
of tho government iu the house. If
my stall numt upon this point, is correct, theu, instead of me resigning
trom tho government, it is your duty
to take that Blep at once. If you

New coke ovens are boing built and
by the end of the month there will

this nnmber will be increased to 800.
The ooke manufactured at Fernie is
of excellent quality, the Hall Mines
finding it equal to, if nnt bettor than
the English coke. The market at preseut. for coke is limited to the B, O.
smelters though some irregular shipments are being mnde to Grout Falls.

Obtained from Spokane and Northport.
Bv the 1st of November the output of
eoko will be -120 tons per day. The
company desire to keop well ahead of
all orders and that being so it is necessary for them to obtnin a proper and
sulfloient outlet for the same.
For household purposes Mr. Jaffray
thinks tbe Crow's Nest Coal is un
equalled. People who do not understand the use of it. nre apt to misjudge
it but when once it has had a fair trial
he is confident that it will givo satis
faction.
For somo timo the coal was shipped
to Nelson unscreened, in fact just
ns it oame from tho pit's mouth, so
possibly some consumers in the town
had good cause for complaint.
But now tbat proper screens are in
constant use he does not anticipate
any further dissatisfaction.
The supply of coal in the Crow's
Nost Pass is apparently unlimited.
Mr. Jaffray1 s company alone own
property where a number of seams
averaging from two to !i0 foet remain
to be worked.
The coal is of more recont period
than that of Great Britain and ocours
only in the orotneeous formation
whereas that of the latter country belongs to the carboniferous period.
This is probably the reason why no
fire clay is found underneath tho
Crow's Nest coal senilis, though Mr.
Jaffiay is in hopes ol discovering
some between Fernie nnd Canmore.
Mr, Jaffray paid many compliments
to Kootenay. Nelson in particular, as
a health resort. Ho could not understand why people in the East should
wish to visit Europe for scenery when
Kootenay was now within so short a
journey of the principal Eastern cities.
He considered the voyage down the
Arrow Lakes one of the most magnificent, sights in the world. Mr. .Talfray

London, July 7.���The Digger's Nev i
snys that the Transvaal Volksrand t'.-
d:iy agreed to the new franchise propose!
whereby all persons now naturalized
and persons who settled in the country prior to January 1891, shall receive
tho franchise immediately. New oom-
ers will be enfranchised after seven
years rosulonce, and sons of Burghers
at the age of 10 years and those of
Uitlanders if 21. The importance
of the Volksraad's action, if tbe Digger's News advice is correot, can
scarcely be over estimated, as it means
a compromise which will do much to
obviate a clash between Great Britain
and the Transvaal. In the Biemfon.
teiu conference the best President Krn-
>er could offer Sir Alfred Milner was
tho enfranchise nent of the Uitlandois
resident before 1900 in two years trom
uow.    This was rejected.
The Daily Mail announces this
morning that Brevol Ool. Lord Ed-

in the Times of vnotBvrlQ.T h�����.., v..���.

forces nt various points on the front

the steamers Georgia and Dunotar

In the House of Common the leader
of the Opposition, Sir Henry Oampbell Bannorman said: "It is not with
regard to bringing the presont force
to a propor standard of efficienoy that
[ wish to inquire but as to the para-
uraph whioh appears as an official communication."
Sir Henry Campbell Bannerman then
red the following extract:
"The Commander-in-Chief has been
engaged in completing the composition
and organization of A larger force,
which it will be necessary to despatch
should the negotiations with the
Transvaal fail."
"It is with regardto this statement of
the Times, which is apparently a new
declaration of Government policy, that
I wish to inquire,." (Opposition
cheers).
Mr. Balfour replied: "I do not
think there is any new declaration
in the policy in the paragraph but I
conceive that tho War Office would   be

Mr. Henry Labouohero. Radical

whether the oflicors, spoken of in the

local forces and if so whether it waB

Richard Bethel, Conservative membtr
for the Holdemoss Division of Yorkshire said : "Would the right honorable gentleman say undor what circumstances the spooial servioes offioers
are likely to be employed und against
what enemies of the Queen. "
Mr. Balfour���"My honorable friend

FREIGHT   FACILITIES.
One of the most interesting points
to note in the interview witb Mr.
Jaffray which we publish this morning is tbat coke will be exported to
the States if���a large "if"���"satisfactory arrangements can be made with
the rival railway companies." Mr.
Jaffray carefully refrained from entering into a discussion on that
point. In fact he preserved a studied
silenoe. But, reading between the
lines, it is easy to see what rail.
way Biiuabbles mean to Nelson. In the
first place a company like the Crow's
Nest Coal company, when asking for
meroies from a great railway corporation, will be met with demands for con
cessions and privileges which will take
an nnprecedented amount of time and
diplomacy to reduce to anything like
reasonable terms. Then comes the inevitable ' we will do this, "or " we will
grant   you  that provided   the   	
company   do   so."    Then   comes   the
tug of war and the unfortunate petitioner finds   two   opponents in   the   field.
We are told   that   if proper arrangements could be made with both the 0.
P. R. and the Great Northern, a quantity of coke would be regularly export
ed to Spokane and Northport.    Nelson
is of course the port  of  export for the
Great Northern.    It   is impossible   to
say where the   fault lies but undoubtedly a great mining   industry is being
retarded   owing   to  tho failure on the
part of these two railway companies to
come tu a mutual understanding  with

to tbe States is $1   per toil.    Tho price
of Crow's Nest Coal at the pit's mouth
is  $S a ton,   the   price   in Nelson   is
16.86, which   allows  $4.25 for cost  of
handling, freight, and agent's commission.    Tbe freight rate is exactly (2.36
per ton from   Fernie   to Nelson, a distanced of 200   miles.    This means that
handling    and    agents     commission
amount  to f2, i. e.   almost  as  much
as tho   freight.    In   Euglaud   coal  at
tho pit's mouth   in   Durham   costs   10
shillings a ton.    The Bame coal in Loudon costs 2'i shillings a ton, the lreight
from   Durham to   London,   under  200
miles beiug nine  shillings a ton, i. e.
$2. Hi.    There   can   be  no  comparison
made between   u country where   rivnl
railway   companies,   cheap   labor and
local   traflic   combine   in   facilitating
tho moans of transporting   coal, and a

A young Swede, named OrlofT, has

to any distance within the rauge of

steering balloons, exploding dynamite
aud so on. What tbey are Mr. Orloff
seems to have no more idea than anyone else. It is becoming more and
more evident every day that thero are
more things in heaven and earth than
are dreamt of in our philosophy. We

THE COKRSPONDENCE.
To the Editor of The Miner:
Sir:���The correspondence bstwoen
Mr. Senilin and Mr. Martin is ludric-
ous in the extreme. One wonld be
tempted to regard the dispute in the
same manner as a mimic fight between
pantaloon nnd :!own were it not for
the unpleauant fact that these interesting individuals at present control the
destinies of the Province.
The lengthy epistle emanating from
the "competent lawyer" wbo "acts"
as Attorney-General, and who "probably was indiscreet" at the Rossland
banquet, but who's department nevertheless "is in first-class shape" can
wnsrn sufficient time to rend it.
And the puppet Premier elected so
only "ou sufferance," What about
him':
What about the whole gang of gerrymanders, of illiterate and incompetent
worthies wbo are ple-<s"d to style
themselves "the government" and add
the prefix of "Honoinble" to their illustrious names. Tho whole concern
is a miserable masquerade of niannik-
ins who unfortuu itely for this un-
happyv Province, are for a time permitted to work untold mischief .in
what promised to be oue of the richest
jewelB in the Crown of Empire.

the
that the citizens should call a
public meeting, now and take some
radical measures in this matter before
it is too late. The people know what
to expect, or, at least, what not to expect from the annual grand jury farcical
recommendations. What can a government composed of tin politicians and
rocking-horse leaders do for us? Or
what can a City Council, that Individ
nally and collectively might make
success at selling vegetables in
Toronto public market, accomplish in
affairs which jeopardize life and property, when they do not display ordi
nary horse-sense in current events'/
However, suit yourselves. Do away
with this thing when fairly warned or
rake your medicine wheu the big
blow out comes.
Remember, tbe eccentricities of dynamite are not understood, not even by
e.VDerts; aud frightful disasters have
occurred when neither lightning, fire,
fuse attachment nor heat had anything to dc with it. The simple slipping of a box, or the knawing teeth of
a hungry mouse will do the deadly
work most effectually. Another thing,
a gang of desperate characters could,
by means of a time fuse, destroy the
City, and in tho frightful confusion
which followed loot the wrecked
banks. And there are just such characters in the Kootenay, if not in Nelson, who may al any time take advantage of this opportunity for revenge or
personal gain.    Yours truly,

Sir John Bouriuot is Canada's authority on Parliamentary procedure.
His opinion on the preseut situation in
British Columbia will therefore be of
interest. Ho is quoted as saying that
the course of Premier Semliu is based
on coustitutional uh8.ru. The Premier
is the choice of the Lieutenant-Governor, and the ministers are the choice
of tho Promier. In tho present instance Mr. Semlin, will now havo to
oommunicato with Lieutenant-Governor Mi-!ij.ii- and ask for Mr. Martin's formal dismissal. If Lieutenant-
Governor Molnnes refuses to dismiss
Martin then there will he no recourse
for Mr. Semlin, eicopt to tender bis
resignation, aud tlie whole government will then be ut an end.
Tho lotter in auothor column drawing attention to the danger iu which
the City stands iu case of lightning
striking tho powder uiaga/.ine brings up
a uew phase of the question that is
worthy of serious consideration. After tho Grand Jury's recommendation,
tho .Tudgo's stnnd and tho Attorney-
General's remarks during the last assizes, what is to be the result? Of
oourse thero is some eicnso for the Attorney-General as ho is kept busy with

"This camp offset the Great Pike's

iug a hill two masked men stepped
from behind the trees, covered the
stiiRO with revolvers, and ordered the
driver to throw out the mail. He did
so without resistenoe, as each bandit
had two revolvers.
Tbe Passengers, A. Cameron, Green-
woord; 0. Ooles, Montreal; and W.
.McKay anil wife, Dulutb.were nit uio
lested. The robbers then ordered the
driver to yo on. The men were interrupted in rifling tho '\2 sacks of

teams They cut open three sucks and
escaped with one containing tbe Greenwood registered mail. The other mail
was recovered by freighters, It is
supposed thev were after the monthly

Government unpopular. The bill,
which is entitled tho "Militia Ballot
Act," is intended to simplify und regularize au existing act now practically
suspended in favor of volunteer enlistment. In his speech introducing
the measure, Lord Lnusdowuo carefully explained tbat the Government
only wanted it rend the first time as
there was no intention to pass it and
be repudiated, "The idea of trying
to introduce conscription by a side
wind." Personally, ho said, be did
not favor conscription, but thought it
advisable that such a bill should be
in readiness if wanted and that the
country should realize how it stands
with regard to this question.
Already the Liberal papeia aro attacking the Government aud asking what
need (hero ia of such a measure unless conscription is intended nud
looking to the fact that recruiting is
dwindling the bill will bo regarded
with great suspicion.

There have beeu many rumors afloat

the larger holders of stock desire to
"freeze" them ont, and that, in order
to do so, tney have foresd Tbe man-
agemment to purposely reduce the output and so keep down the price of the
stock.
Tbe   Miuer   has   been   informed on
good authority   that   these   fears   are
groundless.    The    true history of   the
atfair is as follows:   About a year ago
the Atnabasca  Miuiug Company   was
short of funds.    An  English syndicate I be taken abroad

At a meeting of tbe directors of tlie
Kern mine held last Thursday, Mr
iirigstoi-ke wan appointed manager of
the mine. Mr. F. C. Innes no longer
takes an active part in tbe management.
The Ohapleau was bonded on June
HO by .7. M. Williams representing a
French syndicate of capitalists who
have great faith in the future of the
Slocan. The first deposit was placed
in the bank to the credit of the owners
on the ,'iUth. There was a great deal
of negotiating about the prop'-rty as
the owners received a better offer from
a New York syndicate after signing
the bo id. Mr. Williams was offered a
cunsideraDle sum to release the ovrners
and Mr. Diokenson, on behalf of the
New Yorkers, added another thousand
dollars but Mr. Williams stood bv his
gins and now controls the property
-Which is evidently considered very rich
or tho other parties wonld not be so
anxious to secure   it  stt a larger price.
Work on tbe property will be commenced within a week when ten men
will bo put on. It will lie operated
from rilocan City where Mr. Williams
who is ut present at the Phair, will
move in a few days. The C'haplean is
on the first north fork of Lemon Cree ;
