IS SOW ON TRIAL
Government Supporters Meet
in Victoria.
TO-BE OR NOT TO  BE
The Attorney-General Is  Losing the Remainder of Bis Following���Nothing Definite Known.
Victoria, July 88��� (Speoial).-Government members of the local Legislature from all parts of the Provinoa
assembled here todny, to settle what
prnotioally amounted to the fate of
Mr. Joe Martin, the bellicose Attorney-General of British Columbia,
The stormy petrel himself was present,
as were all tne members of the Cabinet. Every peroaution was taken tbat
no news of the deliberations would be
given to tbe Press, especially to the
Opposition press, so it is impossible to
say definitely just what occurred behind the closed doors. Of course almost hundreds of rumors are ourrnt
and they include everything that could
possibly happen. However it is tbo
general feeling that Martin munt go
as his following is dwindling down to
zero. Seme up-country members who
have been numbered among bis supporters and who enine down here determined to take his side have been surprised .it his total lack of friends here
and have deserted him ns rats desert
a sinking ship. Tho Attorney General
must now realize that he stands alone,
but the game of polities is a peculiar
one and there is no saying yet where
Mr. Mnitin will laud.
Talk of Coalition is still rife nnd it
looks as if it would bo the solution of
(he problem. Members of the Govern
ment who owe thoir positions to the
action of the Lieutenant-Governor are
now berating him for not returning to
tho Beat of war and straightening, mil
matters. His Honor has long since
teen acquainted with the state of
affairs here but bo has shown no disposition to relieve the tension.
An appeal to the country is among
the probabilities spoken of by the poll-
tioiana assembled here, If this occurs
in the near future Mr. Martin will
carry the banner of the laboring man
and will endeavor to get into power by
thnt louto.
The canons continues todny when
something defiuite will probably be
done.
BOUNDARY FREIGHT RATES.
oil had gone over the by-law very carefully last week and did not see their
way olear to make any change from the
figures then arrived at. Dr. Donlittle
pressed tor a settlement and asked for
the exemption of taxation referred to
(luring the early life of the company.
Alderman MoOrae moved that two
years exemption from all taxation be
given the company, and Aldetman
Olute seconded the motion. Tho council passed the motion and the agreement was amended accordingly. It
may be noted that under the terms of
tho agreement the company is already
exempted in respect of its pipes and
mains for 10 years, so that under the
settlement arrived at the company will
be altogether exempt for a period of two
yonrs from the final passing of the
bylaw. The by-law was then road a
third time and passed, snbject to the
approval of the rate payers.
U. S. AND CANADA.
The Boundary papers do not like the
freight rates recently announced by
the C. P. R. The Grand Forks Miner
says: The C. P. It. has issued a provisional freight tariff trom West Rob-
sou to points iu the Boundary Couutry.
The rates look dangerously high and
it is alleged havo been figured to a
basis that will practically leave them
slightly below tho necessarily high
charges exacted by freighters. This
would not indicate that the long looked for benefits to bo conferred on the
Boundary merchants by the advent of
the railway, is anywhere in sight. To
impose exorbitant rates that simply
puts the freighter nut of business cannot be cousideied as u public benefaction. Mr. Peters, the general freight
agent of the 0, P. H., generously admits that the quotations are not moderate hut "ays the schedule represents
the best aramgeiueut his oompany
could make with the contractors. It
looks as though Mann, Foley aud Lnr-
san, not contontfd with the legitimate
PiofltB derived frcu the contract and
from the sales of necessaries to underpaid laborers, purpose enjoying a little
lake off at the public expense, The 0.
P. R, may expect a good sized howl if
It docs not make a sweeping cut as soon
us it takes over the road.
The Press  Opinion   on   the   Alaskan
Boundary   Question.
Editorial opinions of the leading
newspapers of the United States and
Canada on the Alaskan boundary question, republished here, are read with
eagerness. Those which take the extreme view that tho premier's speech
was wholly belligerent in touo aud altogether out of place, are i-egurded as
being based ou incorrect reports of the
utterances. This is the Premier's
viow. Speaking of the American
press opinions ropublishad here, Sir
Wilfrid Laurier said:
"I have no fault to find with the
criticism of my use of the word, 'war'
albeit the expression in which it occurs
was used solely to enfpbasize the fact
that our only alternative as ciivlned
nations is resort to arbitration, and I
stated further I am far from being
without hope that the question will
ultimately be settled by   tbat means."
The Toronto World, edited by W.
P. McLean, a Conservative member of
Parliament makes this sensational
suggestion:
"The way to bring the issues to a
head is for Great Britain to Bend a
staff of surveyors to delimit the boundary uncording to the British contention. The responsibility of a conflict
will thon rest on the United States. If
that country should still refuse to refer the dispute to arbitration, it would
do so in full knowledge of the terrible
possibilities of its refusal. " The Mail
and Umpire, Conservative, approves
Sir Charles Tuppor's suggestion of an
alien mining law for the Yukon. It
adds j
"The Government is right about
standing out against a one sided argument for the settlement of tbe bound
ary, but it would have been doubly
right If it had exercised diplomatic
skill at the outset and had secured jus
tice for Canada before committing us,
as we are committed, in so far as the
present negotiations nre concerned, to
concessions of almost extraordinary
character on other issues."
The Globe, Ministerialist.sees in Sir
Charles Topper's speech only a vindication of the Government's scheme of
constructing a railway from the Stick-
oeu to Teslin Lake, whioh the Benate
threw out last session. For the rest,
it says there does not seem to appear
the necessity of such matters as shut
out Amorioan miners.���Spokesman-Review.

A DECADANT  POWER.
The Spanish Army   Bill   Atta-iked by
Weyler   But is Adopted.
Madrid, July 2li.���The discussion of
the army bill in the Senate today led
to an exoitmg scone. General Weyler
argues against any reduction of the
strength of the army, and warned the
Government that the present situation
made a revolution highly probable,
since it had ne-er been so easy for the
afiny and 're peop.a to mike ..,jmon
oause. He himself, he said, had never
thought of heading a rising, but it
rauBt bo confessed tbat revolutions
sometimes clearjd the political atmosphere and accomplished the work of
regeneration. Seucr Dab, Minister
of the Interior, replying, severely censured Geneial Weyler, declaring thnt
a general who, having 100,000 men,
had tailed to suppress the Cuban rebellion, bad no right to make such
threats, and that any attempt to make
a revolutiou.no matter by whom, would
be proceeded against with the utmost
rigor of the law. The senators warmly
applauded Senor Dato's speech. Tbe
army bill was adopted.

Kingston, Jamaica, July 26.���The
City of Georgetown, British Guiaua,
has recently introduced the electric
light.
The arc light became centers of attraction of "cockles," a species of
small beetle which swaiin iu myriads
uloug the coast and river shores at the
commencement of the Guiana rainy
season, and each lamp was speedily
tilled to tho brim. The front ranks of
the insects then came in contact with
tho ourrent which set their bodies on
fire. Tho immediate result was that
the lamps were rendered useless for II-
lunnuating purfoBos and vast clouds of
intolerably noxious fumes emanated
from them and filled the neighboring
houses, inmates of which were driven
nearly frantic.

Seoretary Hay has called upon the
Nicaraguau government to refund to
the American merchants the amount
which they were illegally compolled
to pay for port aud other duties during
the recent revolution at BlUflfields,
Soveral American merchants Were
made to pay these duties twice because
ollicerB representing the revolutionists
and tho Nicaraguau government were
in oontrol of different ports at the
same time.

the state departmout has now requested
Nicaragua to refund to tho merchants
the amounts illegally collected by irresponsible olllcials. The state department has fully met the charges mnde
by Nicaragua that American inerohants
were involved in the revolution inaugurated to overthrow tbo government
by showing that although some Americans may bavo been in sympathy with
the revolutionists, they did not tako
an active part. It is the expectation
of ollioials that Nicaragua will now refund the overpayments without further protests.

CRIPPLED PROSPERITY.
Ktimloops
did
defend
is  is
conditiou,
A Ministerial paper, The
Sentinel, denies   that tbe business interests of tbe Province   are   suffering,
whether from mistakes  of legislation,
administration,     or    auy'hiug    else.
"There uaver was a   time,''   it   says:
' when   more   was beiug done to develop   its   resources, or when   business
was in  a  henlthier  condition."   Nor
was there ever  a time when the worst
faults of   the  worst   Government
not find   some   newspaper   to
them.    Suoh   business   as there
unqestiouably iu a healthy
and there is a large volume of it.   Tbe
Proviuce on the whole   is   prosperous.
It   would   be   a remarkable thing, indeed, if it were not, with its splendid
natural resources and   with prosperity
in full swing   everywhere   around  it.
Not a Province iu  tho  Dominion, not
a oountry ou the continent or anywhere
in the world, but is enjoying a  liberal
measure of prosperity jtut iB sharing to
the full extent of its  opportunities the
good times  that   everywhere   prevail.
British Columbia is iu with the others.
It oould scarcely   be   otherwise.    Legislation or   administration   would require to be of a studiedly   and  grossly
injurious character   to reuder inoperative all the conditions that   are working for suocoss.   The Province   is  attracting population of a most desirable
kind,   intelligent,    enterprising,   and
with capital sufficient   for a'good start
in a new   country.    There are  mines,
forests, fisheries, aud   agricultural resources awaiting development, of prac
tically unlimited extent, and   offering
immediate and generous  reward to all
them.    If   tbe Proviuce
it     would  be
indeed.
the property callud tbo Red Line Group
m the Windermere district was bonded
liy him foi Hon. OH. Mackintosh aud
is a private transaction altogether. He
further calls our attention to another
item in Tho Era of Golden, which
states in prominent head lines that at
least $1120,000,000 in values in silver,
gold and copper had been discoveied
on the property. He desires us, ou behalf of the Maoklnosh Syndicate, to say
tbat tbis is quite incorrect and apt to
be misleading. The immense values as
set forth in ounces are also incorrect,
so far as general assays are coucerned.
Mr. Ellis states that Mr. Mackintosh
is anxious that no one should be misled as, there being no intention of
putting the property on the market until its full value is established, he
does not desire that innocent parties
should be induced to buy adjoining
properties at increased prices nuder
any misapprehension of the facts.
This correotiou is exactly what those
wonld expect who know Mr. Mackintosh. He is the last man to allow himself or his operations to be used for the
selfish purpose of bcomiug property in
mines, or anything else that may,
through means of it, bo given a fictitious value. He understands too well
that the interests of the Province, instead of being served, would in the end
be injured by it.
And the hut sultry days are here,
proper summer remedies are needed,
such as will promptly relieve the
disorders tbat follow indiscretion in
our eating and drinking���remedies
that no ill effects follow their use.
We offer you only tried and tested
remedies.

idle   to pretend   that it is
prospering     as    it    should.      Three
months ago there was the fnirest promise of a busy season that had ever been
experienced iu the history of the Province. Capital was preparing to flow iu
for the development if our great  mineral  wealth;   mino   owners,   prospectors, andallotheis iu th<s leaBt depending on this the   chief of all our industries were in good heart,  looking   forward to   a season of unexampled prosperity.   Men aud newspapers interested
in    defending   the   Government   may-
deny it, but all   others kuow that  the
Eight-Hour law   has ruined this prospect    beyond      calculation.     Iu   the
Kootenay   districts business   is   good.
Merchants are selling their goods, and
artiBaus of all classes fiud employment.
But we   are indebted   for  this  happy
condition  of   things   to   the  railway
construction that is  going on, and not
to the development  of our   mines.    If
the promise   of   the   latter   had   been
kept, the prosperity  would   have been
increased several fold.    Bat it was uot
kept.    The  Government   aud Legislature interfered between the mino own-
eis and the   nuuors, and caused  troubles which iu sonio   sections have paralysed the mining industry, and iu nil
of them havj   proved most   injurious.
The   Kootenays   aro   prosperous,   but
not as   prosperous as   they would have
been if the   Legislature   had   kept  its
meddling   bauds   otT   mining  matters
that it did not understand ot take  the
least pains to cousider.
MuBiuess prosperity has not ouly been
checked in Southeru British Columbia
by ignorant legislation,   but in the far
north,   in the Atlin   country,   even  a
worse conditiou pr'vails.    That is also
due to legislation  conceived   in ii<iior-
anco aud   narrowness of   Bpirit.    Into
such cuufuBiou have the business iutei-
ests of  the   district   been   tttowu by
the anti-Alien law and its administration, that the Lieutenant-Governor has
taken   the     extraordinary     course  of
promisiug the Bennett Board of Trade
to inquire   fully   into the   conditions,
and himself   to   take the initiative, if
necessary, in devising means to rectify
the mistakes   tbat   have   been   made.
The development that was expected iu
the Atlin country has not materialised ;
the disappointment there is even more
pronounced   than   in   tbe   Kootenays.
In both, however, business  prosperity
bas been seriously   retarded by the actions   of   tho   Legislature   iu  dealing
with tho mining interestB of the Province.    If   there   had been no  iuterfer-
enoe, and these had been allowed  free
Mr. Cotton's supremely absurd offer
of a million in aid of the Pacific catile
does not appear to havo been even considered at the conference in Loudon
which fin-lly agreed to the conditions on which the project is to bo carried out. By the way, with equal
contributions towards cost, why
should the Mother Country bave three
representatives on the Board of Control aud Canada only two?

keep the women front constantly parading the streets? Tho sight, ot a

will not soon recover from, if the Aldermen aro too weak to tackle tho question of removing the houses perhaps
they could bring about, a much needed

not allowed to openly parade their

and that is that every month's delay
in fettling the question makes it n
more difficult one to handle.

GAME IN GOAT RIVER.
A correspondent   writing from  Kns-
konook yesterday remarks: "I remarked to The Miner a month   since   that
game was plentiful   in   the   foothills,
all up the   Goat   River.    If the  game
laws aro so   openly   broken the   above
mentioned state of affairs   cannot   last
long.   The Siwash   Indians have beon
nnd are now shooting does   und  bucks
indiscriminately   fight and   left,   and
peddling the moat round Port Hill, Idaho, for so much   per   pound in   cosh.
This morning three Siwashes from tho
B, C. side camo to my cabin and asked I
me if I wanted to bny meat, thoy Having the deer   hung up   in   the  woods.
Sitting   iu   Port   Hill  hotel  room,   I
heard an Idaho   rancher   openly leaguing lhat, the   game laws in his   stato
forbade   him   to   kill   deer   for   some
tune yet, bnt that he only had to   go a
mile or iwo.cross tbe lino and sbootall
tlto deer he wanted, and   that  already
he had   killod   quite   a   number   this
spring,   What is the use ot game laws
if they are not enforced?"

London, K. 0., July 8.���The general
appearance of the stock exchange has
been of a rather nervous character in
consequence of tbe uncertain stale Ol
tho Transvaal  negotiations  and have
fluctuated according to tbe news front
there und the ("ape. In tlie West Australian Mines they bave been fairly
Steady and snuti' important   rises   bave
taken place espeolaly in tbe low priced
shares. True Bine's which were i)UOt-
o<l at only a few shillings a short time
ago are not about '.'. His. There has
been a good demand for copper shares
In consequence of tbe rises in that
metal. Although some of the receut
issues have (alien rather Hat and consequently the underwriters have been
Btruck with tlie stock. Little or noth
ing has heen dene in B. 0. shares.
Le Roi's have been down to six and are
now 7%. Tbis is owing I suppose to
the absence of buyers on account of tbe
holidays having set in. Paris seems to
look rather kindly to B. C. shares
and are taking �� band iu tbem. If the
B. 0. Government could only lie prevailed to open an agency it would
make n woudeiful impression on tbe
French investors. Tbe American market has been very active and shows a
good advance. 0 P. K. have fluctuated considerably in consequence of a
bad monthly statement. Thi iuorense
in the cost of registering uew companies has not retarded tbo promoter
from work according to the registera
tions of last month, viz: Tbe new
companies registering during June at
Somerset House, were 423 with a capi
tal of ��34,445,066, as against 551 in
tbe previous month, with aii aggregate
capital of ��37,*S7,446. There are
several B. 0. mining companies
awaiting better times and I shall not
be surprised to sae a good mining boom
in October as soon as this war uloud
