Dr. BOrdeu rose to mnke u statement
Speaking tbe other day Clarke Wulkei
bud said that a sou of the Minister ot

could look with interest to the outcome of the affair. Dr. Boraon suid
that he received u report, from his son
slating that the story that he had bnd
difficulty wiih his hommanuer wus
without foundation, Major Williams
sent to lbe Minister a similar denial.
Dr. Borden, however, hud waited until he had received the report of the
district commanding oftlcer. Thut
was now lo bund ami it gave a tlat

not believe Hint the reason given was
the correct one. A good muuy genernls
bail left Cnnndn under n cloud and it
wus said thut this one wus leaving the
country heciiuse of friction. There wns
too much politics in the militia.
Sir Wilfrid Luurier did not think
that this was the proper way to discuss
the question. 'Ienernl Huttou wus recalled by the imperial authorities to
take part in the war iu South Afrioa.
General Huttou had done good service
in the inilitiu nnd he hoped that he
would be allowed to leave with the
best wishes of the people of Canada
Lieutenant-Colonel Tisdule, bow-
over, went on to discuss the mutter
nnd suid tbat the   time hnd   now come
when a Canadian officer should bt
placed  iu    command    of    Canadian
militia
Lieutenant-Colonel Domville referred to Colonel Prior's speech us being
an apology for -Gem ral Huttou. He
said innl tllltton ought lo be allowed
to slide out quietly nnd quickly. If be
had done wrong he should hnve a
state's trial. Prior wanted to try him
after be hnd go-', or to whitewash
him before he left. The press suid
tbut huttou wns leaving under u
cloud. Tbo Press did not say thnt the
ollicers of tlm country regretted the
departure of General Huttou. He
(Domville) had received from Colonel
Vun Wagner a cubic letter which
showed that be bud received worse
treatment than Oolonel Hughes. Some
gentlemen wonted to oover up Huttou s
tracks. Huttou was not only troublesome iii Canada, but if anyone would
link ui the discussions in New South
Wnles tbey would sec volumes regarding him. He went on to show thnl
HnttOU never Stayed very long in a
liltlce ut one time uud approved of   the
idea of putting a Canadian offloer in
command of ihe militia.
Ur. Bproule, Sir Adolphe Oaron,
MoCartby ami Osier all spoke briefly
Mr. McCarthy taking the posltioaU
that the question should not be discussed until the correspondence came
down. Dr. Horden had s'lirl thut no
notice could be given tbe mutter.
About live seconds before Prior urose
he sent B note notOSS the floor to
him. If Prior wns noting al the instigation of nny ono outside he would
by this time huvej regretted it. In regard to   the departure  of   tho   general
officer commanding, at this particular
lime.he wonld say that no crisis would
arise. Men might come nnd men
might go, but the militia of Canada
would go on forever. The time, how-
ever, bud come when, in his opinion,
uml he wns speaking lor   himself only.
Canada   should   not   ho oonflnad to
the one source to druw her generals.
Mr. Fielding moved the House into

quiet opposition, whose exact strength
cannot ut present be measured, has
de-eloped to the ^rulilicutiou of the
llny-Pauncefote treuty regarding the

turns to the tiuuty have so fur been
formulated. Tho first is that Ununited States, nfter going to ull the
expense of building und lnuintainiug
the canal, enn derive no advantage
from it in time of wur. It cannot clo-o
it ni its enemies, und, in case its enemies prove stronger Oil the sens than

not doubt   thnt.   although   tt,rr,iH   |.v

tion is that the  treaty   practica.     >!
mits Great    Hrituiu   as   the   suae,  .j'
of the United States.    All that Britain
claimed  ns suzureigi] in South   Afrioa
was the   right to  oversee   the ttenties
between   the   Trausvnal     nnd   foreign
states.     The    Hay-Pauncefote   treaty
gives her the right to  oversell   treaties
betwsen  the   United   Stntes   anil   two
independent Central American  Kepuh
lies.    Further,   it   is   contended  that
any treaty is unecessary, ns hampering
the Unitde Stntes   with   needless  conditions.   The  Clnytpn-Bulwer treaty,
which   the   new    treaty     proposes   to
amend, expressly provides  that it mny
be terminated by either   party  at  one
yejr's notice after it   hns   run   for   15
years.    The 15  yenrs wero up iu   INM
nnd muuy people in  this   country   can
see  uo  reason   why   the   old    treaty
should not be ended in accordance with
its own proivsion's,
Testimony as to the loyalty of Canada to the Mother Country in the
South African struggle, is borne by
Americans retntnlng from visits to
the Dominion. J. W. Landrum. of
New York, is the latest to speak of the
subject. He says: "There is no
doubt about the entbnsiam and sincerity of tin* support which Canada is giving the Mother Country in her time
nf trouble. 1 formerly lived in Montreal and have just returned from a two
week's stay there. Canadians, however, nre nreadlnlly disappointed and
humiliated, The results of this war
win or lose, will be lusting in Canada.
For years they have heard thut Kng-
land would protect her if the United
States i ver menaced her. Now they
know that Bngland could not semi nu

never be forgotten, "

These suspensions ure mnoh too serious to be rlismlHseti with u mere ren-

most earnest consideration, Hot of
the Bight-Honr law incalculable mis-
chief hus come already, and unless
some remedy be supplied soon there
will be moic of it. ll is brooming
more and more apparent thnt the  Leg-

lm, fl are willing to go as far ns reu-
! in, justice, and l��ir piny ouiiltl tie-
��� naml. but the men hold hack. The
Miner is informed Hint u committee
nf the business men advised a committee of the Unions to advise the miners
to accept the terms of the managers,
und tbat the}- diil so with the promise
to report Inst t-jittiiriliiy. As fur ns
known, no report bus yet been made,
It is understood the matter hus been
referred to the Onion officials nt Hutlc,
Montana We hnve come to this puss
in 1. Hritish Province, thnt in our In*
iliiBtrinl affairs we nre governed by foreigners, operating from n fnieiijii
���state. We are governed by a Federation of Lnbor whose members make a
hero of a innrnerer who is low serving his sentence of seventeen years in
State prison. Is it uot high time the
people at Victorin were awakening to
the -haute and disgrace of the niton
lion?
The Union secretary at Mandon is in
receipt of a large salary from these
foreign dictators, a larger snlnry than
he could earn as u miner. He bus what
in common pm lance is culled a soft
job, and is in no hurry to throw it up.
In this respect be is like other Union
officials. It puvs them to keep up lhe
agitation. Th.- mining industry maybe, destroyed, and the miners may loaf
in idleness on their pension! ;  bul they
fare sumptuously, it is better than
work. These men are directed from
headquarters in .Montana, by men who
are aiders and abettors of riot, inceiid
iarisin. und minder. It is lime all tin-
was stopped. II ean he Stopped by our
members at  Victoria,Vlbo have only to
legislate iu   the  loterssl  of the Prov*
ince ami not lot   the   benefit   of   alien
agitators   Tne great hulk of Canadian
miners, if they thought themselves
free to express their honest opinion,
would say Ihoy are sick und tired o[
their wretched squabbling, uml woold
prefer to gel bnek lo work. They are
un honest body of men, who ure will
Ing to'give n lair day's work tor u ���
fair day's pay.    The code of labor eth- j
ies which loiuui expression in the
loeur d'Alenea, and winch designing!
scoundrels are seeking to introduce in
lo Hritish   Columbia,    bus   no  atlrat
lions for them.    Hut iindci a mistaken
sense of honor they think   thev ure ob  ;
ligeil to rapport   the   Union officials,
without suspecting tbal  tbey are lend
mg themselves   to  their   (elfish   pni
pjses.    II ouly requires thai ihese men
shall be enoonraged (o cut  themselves
loose from a eonspiruey thai   threatens
to degrade them, aud this enoonrage*
mem the Legislature can give,
It is not very   reputable,   if  true; but
what iia< Legislature of British Columbia bus to do wilb it will puzzle any
one less wise than Mr, Martin to explain.    Mr,    Martin   Iiiih    two    other
charges against  Mr,   Cotton, one of
brunch of I nisi anil the Other Of fills! fv-
Ing public   records, both very  hud If
true. The breach of trust, is a lnutler
for the victim nnil Ihe courts, but not
for the ^Legislature,    The   third   may
proper I j [he made the subject of inquiry! and should Mr. Cotton be proven guilty,the Governor would be .instilled ln{iuslsting that  be take himself
out    ol'   lhe   Cabinet,   ami   the House
would be justified   In  expelling bim,
Ilut.it may he that the olfenee is not
half us grievous as it is lepieseuted to
be in the simple naming of it.

the sound one. It is a bun Hill ill itself, but is is introduced with the
single purpose nf bniiissing the Iluns-
muirs, which is worse, Ministers
must be ilull beyond   reckoning if thoy
do uot understand thai the  legislation
proposed by it would be quite as un-
lOnstitUtional [as the measure of Inst
session which Die Judicial Committee
of the Imperial Privy Council unanimously set aside ns iillia vires of the
Legislature. Mr. Prentice is ostensibly a 'iiivointncnt   supporter,   but  his

the Ignorance or vindiotiveness which
is responsible for this Hill, lie is too
good n member for tho oompany he
is in. 	
Till Union officials and their organ
in Nelsou cry out In grout alarm if
some raw hands nre put to work in a
mine. Tbey sny tbey are a danger to
their comrades, as their inexperienco
is liable to result iu some tcriihle accident. And, ohnnging their mood, tbey
poke Inn al'the malingers for employing cab drivers, dock laborers and
such like as miners. ' Yet the Unions
have their pickets out to seduce these
men from thoir engagements,and when
thev oapture them turn them into regulation miners, in the i*10lt space of
one night, by the simple prooess of initialing thein'as members of a Union.
The marvel iH that decent, honest
miners can snhniil to associate themselves with such fraud and humbug,

could be," suid a gent, leiniiu from
Spokane to a Miner mun yesterday.
"The disease which is so prevalent in
American cities'at- tho present time is
of the mildest type, is lmriily ever
fatal and does not leave the murk upon one's faoo or elsewhere. Whatever
you do don't worry abont it nnd don't
allow your friends to worry. "
It.bas been suggested bv several citizens that au effort might bo made to
enfoioe tho snow by-law to the extent
at least, that the main streets of the
Oity shall be cleaned. The by-law
provides that nil sidewalks shall be
oleanod of snow und utiaches a penalty
for failure to observe the law. It bus
never been enforced, but might be, nt
the present time, to very good advantage, Borne of tho down town streets
are in very bud condition.
All players of the Nelson Hook.y
team are requested to attend a practice
at the rink tonight. This -will be the
last practice before the game at Ross
land, which will bo played Thursday
evening. As large an attendance as
possible is therefor requested. The
team will leave Nelson Thursday

Visitors t<; the meeting uf the Baptist Young People's Union   last   night
enjoyed an exceptionally good program composed of speeches, recitations
and vocal music.    Little  Miss  Felicia
Burt, n four-year-old,  earned a huge
amount of appluuse because of the
mauner in which she recited. Special mention might ulso lie made of u
solo and recitation by Miss Smith and
a duet hy tho Misses l.ulii nnil Edna

those present adjourned to the church

wick, advanced Libera], gave notice
of a resolution culling attention to the
foot that the Colonies ure without representatives ill tbo Imperial Parliament. The resolution was set down
for a month hence, but it is not likely
that time will be found for its discussion.
The Under Secretary of State for
Poregn Otllce, Mr. Win. St. John
Broderick, was asked whether the
Government had received any commune ation from Germany modifying
the declaration mnde in IHIlo by the
then minister of foreign affairs, Huron
Von Blebcrstein.to the effect that (Jer-
innny's only policy was the maintenance of tin* Transvaal us an independent stuto in accordance with the treaty
of 1884. He replied that no communication had been received from the
German Government relative to the
oonvention of Is-.! which he added, as
a matter of fact, was terminated by
the state ol war. 'Jin- 1. under Secretary of State for tiie War Otllce, Mr.
George Wvndham. dedniBtely set at

Mr. Wyudham also said it was a scandal iind a danger to (he Empire that

Returning  'Klondike!-   Tells   of   Capo
Nomo Fields.
Fort Plain, N. *_., Peb, IS.���The
following is a portion of a letter received here by Ervin Miller, a returned Klondike., from lhe postmaster at
Nome, Alaska, the latest gold producing Held :
"Imagine a strip of sandy beaoh
which will pan from i'in to ?o00 per
day. The water from the ocean is used
to wash out the auriferous particles
nud there is a chance for everyone. Of
course there is a stiip along the beach
about Kin feet wide thnt belongs to the
(ioverninent for a roadway. Bnt this
can be leased from the interior depart
incut and is being worked hy those
who are in need of ready money for
the necessaries of life. About eight
months ago a crowd of -,000 miners
enmo in dead broke. They had lost
evoiylhing thoy bad in the Copper
River oonntry and to them tbe free
geld on the   beach was a Gonsend.
'I buve never seen anyone who
wauled to work, clear up less than $25
n day. There are times when rich
pockets would be struck and the labor
of a few hours wonld pay .500. Tbe
best time to work is in tbe winter
when the ground is frozen, bnt even
the climate is not so severe ns in the
Klondike and the minors work to belter udvnntage. Up in the hills mines
bave been discovered and have been
worked foi several seasons, Oue of
them employes eight men and hns
turned out. over (880,000 net."
