The Citv Oonnoil hud to deal with a

the Oonnoil mot. Evidently the

yet nud declines to allow the ',1
of "Chinese olioap lubot"
nour his dwellings.
The Counoil begau by being confronted with a strong petition from
the residents on Minos Road, between
Stanley nud Josephine streets praying
thut the Chinese laundry there be removed. Mr. Hetlley addressed the
Council on behalf of Mr. J. J. Campbell us well as himself. This Chinese
laundry was next door to Mr. Campbells uew house. The said house
would never have been begun had the
builder lor one moment anticipated an
iimvsion of the Chinese "washee man"
ou the adjmniiu property.
Mr. K. Vac onald spoko for himself
and Dr, T.aBan. All the residents iu
the immediate net hborhood of the
laundry bad signed tne putitiun when

thi Chinese lo he allowed to reside iu

A letter announoing the appointment of Dr. Forin as a lioen.Se com-

Mr. Hiuold Selnus wrote to point out
the extreme inconvenience aud even
damage to his property] that was cans-
ed by the surface water in Stanley
street by the Phair Hotel.
Aid. Fletcher thought it was quite
time that steps were taken, to remedy
i this trouble. Everytirae a heavy shower of rain fell, a quautity of mud,
I sand and water washed down Stanley
Btnet to Baker street. Already six
times the oost of a drain had been
spent iu wages for the clearing awav
of the mud after ruiu.
Aid. Beer would not like the City to
undertake any improvement without
estimating tbe expense first of all.
The Oity Engineer suggested putting
in a catch basin at the Phair Hotel
oorner of Viotoria street but Aid
Fletcher thought that the sewer in
Victoria street,being only an eight-
inch pipe w s uot large enough for
the amount of mud and water thut
would acnumulato tbere. It was finally resolved to put in a wooden box
drain ou the west side of Stauley
street from Victoria street to Baker
street and a oatch baeiu in Baker
street,
Mr. Beck, the late carotaker of the
cemetery nppiled for four months salary at tlio rate of $H5 a month. The
Oonnoil held differeut views to Mr.
Beck on that questiou so bis application was tiled.
Mr, U. Hit,due applied for a side-
walK on Ward street, from the corner
of Ward and Latimer streets to Mill
street but his application shared the
samo fate ns Mr. Beck's. So likewise
���lid au offer from Mr. M Evans to sell
the City a scavenging tank for $35.
The City Engineer >eported that the
temporary sewei in Viotoiia svreet (as
prayed for by tbe property holders ou
Blocks Hi and 17 in that stroet) would
cost $25 exclus.vo of the removing of

Aid. Beer considered that other sewers were just as necessary as this one.
He wonld suggest that the City Engineer make out a list of all necessary
sewers and au estimate ot their cost,
before the City undertake auy uioie
sewer work Tbe Council deferred
the consideration of tbis matter uutil
tbe next meeting.
'Ihe report of tho Board of Works

Mayer nominated Aid. Fletcher, Beer
aud Kirkpatiiok.
Yet another supplicant and lbs time
that praiBewort'ny institution, the public library. Mr. Crease pleaded the
library's cause. He mentioued that
the late.Mayor ("Just before election '
somebody remarked) bad promised tbe
library $300 from the City funds.
The library had beenstnrted and subscriptions oolleoted on the strength of
that sum as a unoelons. The library
committee weto now a little short ot
cash and wanted euongh to help they
through until next year's subscriptions were duo. They modestly ask
ed for $200 instead of the $300 tbat had
been promised lo tbem.
Aid. Beer spoke of the great value of
tbe library to the City. It was always
full of readers aud it Bhould receive
every encouragement. In spite of tbe
City's heavy burden of expenses and
other obtsaoles in tbe way he would
move that the $200 now asked for be
given to the library committee. A les-
otution was passed acceding to Mr.
Creaso'H request.

Members of the   Nelson   Rifles Euter-
tain Their Instructor.
Tie smartly uniformed member of
the Nelson R.fle Company sat in a
row, like a minstrel troupe on tho
stage of the Opera House last night
and played to emptv henohes. But they
did not, want an audier.ee. It wns a
little affair of their own. It was
thn last nipbt that Sergt -Tustruou r
Carroll was to be with thein and they
made up their mini's to m.iko the
most of it, for they hko tbe Seigeunt
uud fully appreciate the fact tout lie
has done an immense amonut of good
to them duiing his month's stay here.
Tbe oompany fell iu at thu armoury
and had a short frill after which it
wns dismissed to full in again at the
Opera House where Sergt. Canoll gavn
a practical demonstration of technical
points in company formation after
which the co npauy again dismissed.
J.ieut. Beer, in the unavoidable ab
sence of Cupt. Hodgins, became master of ceremonies. The toast, to Her
Majesty was drunk as only ".Soldiers
of the tjueen" can drink it and then
Jjieut Beer made a short sneech in
which he thanked Sergt. Carroll for
the very sincere interest he had taken
in the welfare of the company As a
token 11 tne esteem in which the meui-
be-s of t.ie Nelson Rifles held him
Sergt. Carri.ll was made the recipient
of a very handso.ne present from the
com pan v.
In responding Sergt. Carrol thanked
the officers and uiernbeis of Ihe company
for their evidence ot good will. Ho
was very pleased to see that the drills
were so largely attended, the average
attendance being over thirty for each
nigbt dnriog the month Tbe establishment of companies in the Kootnuay,
he said was a step in the right direo
tion aud if the interest of all tbe
companies was as great as that shown
by the Nelson corps the fnrtnre success of the volunteers in Ibis country
was assured. The coinpunv bad mastered with great ability the infantry
drill musketry, use of the mw rife,
swoid exercise and fencing, formation
for attack, and the duties of a soldier
in general. He wi.s particularly
pleased with tbeii good behavior
wbeirin uniform and their smart
soldie'ly appearance. Great credit
be said'was dne to Oapt. Hodgins
for the practical interest he had
shown in JtLe establishment of; the
rifile range and also to Lieutenant Beer and non oommisoned
officers for the good example tbey had
shown the men. He thought thre was
snlfioient material in Nelson out of
which to fcrm another company and
there were men in No. I company that
were quite capable of becoming officers of the now company. In conclu
sion Sergt. Carroll urged the members
of the company to maintain their interest in tbe work and still add to the
high state of efficiency th��y bave already attained.
Refreshments followed and songs
and reoitations filled iuavery pleasant
evening. Sergt. Carroll leaves this
afternoon for Rossland where be will
endeavor to instill into the Rossland
company the same interest that he
was responsible for here. The members of the Nelson Rifles look forward
with hope to Serat. Carroll's permanent residence in Kootenay.
R'Utiis Aug. 14.��� Two men ambushed Mai Ire Laborie counsel for Dre>ius
aud oue shot was fired hitting Lnborie
in the baolt.He fell in tbe roadway, j^e
is still alive. Maitre Laborie left his
house alone for tbe court at G o'clotk
this morning. His tesidencu is fitnaltd
in the suburbs of the town ahont a
quarter of an hours' walk from the
Lycte tbe route le;ng along a solitary
ma I beside the River Vilaine. Ho had
reached a point half way en bis journey when two meu who had evidently
beon lying in wait for him rushed out
of a narrow lane aim one of them fired
a single shot from a revolver. The
murderers were only a couple of yards
behind their victim and tho bullet
struck Mr. Labmio in the back
The wounded man uttered an
agonized cry aud fell flat on his face.
Tbe murderer immediately fled through
tbe lane from which they had crnirg-
ed ndn both escaped. At 7 :iJ0 it was
announced that the bullet bad entered the stomach; that tbere was no outward blneding, and that tha physcians
believed that M. Loborie will die from
the wound. A later story has it that
M. Laborie wns shot in tbe temple by
a man who fired a revolver at him out-
si, i the 30urt and that the miBcreant
was arrested.
Mr. Laboire though comparatively a
young man, was one of the ablest advocates in Paris. His magnificent defence of Eraile Zola will still be re-
memered by many. His wife is a beautiful and accomplisheu woman. Ste
was a professional pianist and as
Miiss Maggie Oknoy was frequently at
London concerts. She married her
master, Cadimir de Paobmaim whom
she divoiced and theu married Laborie.
Both were well known and popular
iu   Parisian society.
The announcement in court of the
attempt on Laborie's life caused a deep
hush. Solemn silence reigned for perhaps three or four minutej. At length
the Nationalists and Dreyfusiies declared their horror of the crime and
their sympathy with the victim.
The sitting was adjourned for a short
time to enable Maitre Deiuauge to inquire after Laborie's condition. During the proceedings pending the iu-
I quiry, tbe ladies grew exoited and
,00mmuni ated their nervousness to the
gentlemen. As a precaution against
canes aud parasols being used as a
faction in fight, a gendarme wau sent
around *o take them^in his care. This
led to masculine protests and much
feminine cackle, but the gendarmes
insisted. The court then retired,
Col. Jounast tbe president of tho tribunal alluding to some manifestation
of opinion last Saturday in the press
tribune threatened to clear it. if their
approval or disapproval of any witness
was expressed. He then ordinal the
confrontation of M. Casimir-Perier
and General Mercier.
Then followed General Billot who
sat while making his long deposition
He still believes Dreyfus gnilty, bnt
he gave no strong reason. He said
that Col. Picqnart systematically, as
head of the intelligence department
kept baok all new facts unfavorable to
Dreyfus and stifled inquiry.
The $1,500 voted by the Provincial
Government for a road from Greenwood to White's camp, will be augmented by $1,500 subscribed hy Greenwood business men and mine owners
Mr. Reefer, the manager of the No 7
mine, heads the list with$500.
J. T. Vogler, foreman in charge of
the work on the St. Louis group, under bond to a Toronto syndicate came
down from Six Mile creek Inst evening. Two tunnels nre being driven on
the St. Lonis whioh is showing con-
niderable promisf. The tunnels are
being driven to strike tbe vein, whioh
it is expeoted, they will do when in
100 feet. A great deal of assessment
work is now being done on Six Mile
nud shots can be heard in all direo
tions.
There was a great sensation when
M. Demange mentioned the opinion expressed by M. Harthout
that General Billot had been forewarned in regard to the forgery of
Lieutenant Henry. He acknowledged
that the Henry forgery was ono that
hnd been a factor iu arousing his
doubts. Continuing, Gen. Billot said
he was immensely surprised aud deeply
affected by the revelation of forgery.
He said: "I never oould have believed
a superior officor could be guilty of
forgery.'' M. Oavagninc, forrair
minister of wir wus the next witness.
Replying to the court be said he
was tbe first oabiuet minster to assume
a responsibility towards Dreyfus.
He had closely followed the inquiry
nud, ho continued, still desired to associate himself with the responsibility
of those who in 1894, protected the
country and the army against treason
le.ii.li    to   Capt.     1., lililll   lleiia).ll,     IU
support of which contention he quoted,
a passage from an alleged letter of
Dreyfus but which in reality was part
of Gen. Gonzas report of the minister
of war in Col. Du Paty de Clam's report of the alleged confession. M.
Cavagniao admitted tbe falibility of
human testimony and said tbat it
ought to be taken into account (when
condemning a fellow man, but he was
conviuced of the guilt of Dreyfus be-
causehis accussers were entirely in
agreement in their testimony. The
witness also said be found additional
proofs of the prisoners guilt in tho
treasonable character ot the bordereau
and tbat that alone established the fact
tbat treasou had emanated from the
general staff and moreover from an
officer on that s'aff wbo was able to
secure all the information desired.
Aooordiug to M. Cavaguiac, eveu in
his attempts to hido his crime, tbo
accused had allowed words to escape
him which indisputably established
his guilt.
Everything, according to this witness, condemned Dreyfus and he claimed, in spite of tbe prisoners denial, it
was established that he bad be en everywhere, where it was necessary io pro-
ante the information in question It
was established, the witness asserted,
that the prisoner had copied plans of
tbe proposed concentration of tbo
army. Witnesses, he olaimed, would
testify in support of this assertion.
M. Cavagniac next discussed the tie
nials of Dreyfus, and said his excuses
of lapse of memory were iuadmissable.
Dreyfus, be olaimed, was aware of the
changes in tho bridge corps belonging
to the artillery, and also of the details of
tbe concentration. Why then, the
witnKss a ked, had he denied this
knowledge? It was impossible to credit
the fact mat Esterhazy was a traitor
even admitting the bordereau was
written by him. Esterhazy, he. insisted, could only bave acted as tho intermediary of an accomplice. The inquiry
of the Court of Cassation proved trea
son was really committed, and be,
(Cavagniac) had not based his conviction of the culpability ot Dreyfus solely
on the hand wilting in the bordeienu.
In tbe secret dossier he poind d out,
there were mauy elements for conviction and ho proposed to discuss all
the allegations -j made by foreigners
with the view of exculpating Dreyfns. For instance tbere would be olli-
oial denials which would leave room
for the truth to escape. Besides it
was quite possible the accussed was
gnilty of treason without having had
direct relations with the agents of a
foreign Government; and a certain
ambassador bad admitted his military
attache had spied under the immunity
granted to diplomats, uoi. juudm ,.[��������
ed M. Cavaginao to explain tbe discov
ery of the Henry forgery and the wit-
ees repreated the statement he had al
ready made on the subject. He dwelt
at length on M. Oniguots' long investigation.
Col.. Jouast then asked :
"What oo you think of the Henry
forgery in relation to the facts tnow
occupying our attention?"
"Tho Henry forgery, it was alloged,
was in order to secure a revision of the
case by tbe Court of Cassation aud was
uot even alluded to. This forgery therefore, should remain outside the scope
of the qnestione submitted to this court
martial   That is my opinion"
Replying to another question M|Cav-
aginno said tbat tl.e statement that
Dreyfus went to Brussels iu the middle of 1894, rested ou hearsay.
M. Oavaguian introduced, during the
o urse of his evideme, a memorandum
written in German, asking for various
information wanted by the embassy,
which appears to have; been uneartbed
from the archives of the Bureau of Information of the war office. He said ho
believed it was written bv a military
att.hche.
2 M. Demange asked why M. Cavag-
niao wbo was so anxious to incrimi
nate Dreyfus, had not produced this
document in the Chamber nf Deputies.
The witness replied that he had
other means of reaching the end.
Counsel for the prisoner then questioned M. Oavagniao in regard to bis
statement that Geueral De Boisdeffvre
waB absent from Paris on November
the sixth, when Gen. Meroier declares
he was there. The witness replied
tbat De Boisdeffvre was ��� certainly
absent on lhat date. Col. Jouast remarked that this point would be elucidated when Gen. De Boisdeffvre appeared.
Ool. Jouast then told Dreyfus to n'se,
nnd asked bim if he had any   remarks
to make upon the evidence.    The pris
oner in a low voice   replied :
"1 am astounded that the man who
produced iu the tribunal of the
Chamber the Henry forgery can como
here and base bis convictions of my
onlpabilitv on matters which the Cour*
of Casiation bad alroady disposed of."
(Great sensation, j
Generl Znrlinden.also a former minster of war was tbe next witness. He
began by pointing ont tho obligation
roBting upon those directiug espionage
to do everything possible to save those
serving them when the spies wero discovered. Ho then declined that be still
regarded tho bordereau as being tho
best proof of tbe guilt of Dreyfns and
said it would be impossible for those
who were prosecuting Dreyfus to be
acting from sprit de corps, aud it
would be as unjust to say so as to say
they approve the "Odimis act just
committed in the vicinity."
This enquiry into tho houor of the
army, he continued, bad nothing to do
with tho affair.
Gen. Zurlinden then traversed tho
old ground and declared uothing not
even Esterhazy's confession, had oc-
ouried to change his oonvictlons.
The prosecution of.Dreyfns the witness
asserted, was quite unforeseen, and,
thoreforo, the idea of machinations
was untennablo
The reiteration by Gen. Zurlindeu
of his firm belief that   Dreyfus   wrote

AGREES TO TflE INQUIRY
It Is  Said ThatlK-njer Is Willing to
Meet Mr. Ohambe' Iain's Views.
Preparing for War.
London, Aug. 5.���President Kruger,
according to n despatch from Johannesburg has sent a reply accepting the
proposal of the Secretary [of State for
the Colonies.JMr. Joseph Chamberlain,
to submit the franchise controversy
to a joint commission of inquiry, on
condition tbat the independence of
the  Transvaal shall not be impugnod,
Tbo     Johannesburg    correspondent
of tha   Morning Post sbvb :
"President Kruger.owing to advanc
ing years, has become physically and
mentally incapable of dealing with
the situation. Often at the meetings
of the executive ho weeps, but possibly
he is shaming incapacity.
Johannesburg, ^Aug. I.���The Standard nnd Diggers News says: "Today tho Boers are convinced that tbere
is nothing for it now but the arbitrament of arms. All sorts of warlike rumors ate in circulation. It is alleged
that tha fiold'comets have received orders to supplyj all unarmed burghers
with rifles free and substitute Mansers
for Martini-Henri's wherever tbe lat-
tor are still in use.
Pretoria, Aug. 14. ���Dospite General
Jonbcrt's denial, it is reported, that
the Government made large purchases
of mules last Saturday Today a large
crowd besiegod the^ office of the filed
cornets demanding rifles ou account
ot the wttr scare. f.^aB^a$i.'M
Continuing, the   witness   said  that
among the principal points upon whioh ] the bordereau caused excitement,
he based his convictions was tbe  oon-      M   Demange suggested that   if
Fabre had not thought (uf examining
and writing for the probationers, tie
bordereau would then have been etei-
nally buried in the archives of tie
ministry of war aud he remarked:
'If this is the 'case, it mnBt evidente
there was nothing in the bordeau
which implicated Dreyfns."
General Zurliuden, in a troubled
voice acknowledged this fact oonolo-
si-ely and tried to explain. M. Demange, however, got |hira to admit it
was not until after condemnation that
tbo study of the bordereau seemed to
indicate it was the work of a probationer.
In reply to further quositons Gen.
Zurlihdeu saifi that iiw order to know
l no whole truth in regard to the bordereau, they must have the fonr notes
therein mentioned. Thoy tnuNtJhe secured. At this point Dreyfus interjected: "I associate myself with these
words, my colonel, I desire the truth.
I only ask for the truth." These statements caused excitement  in conrt.
General Chanoiue^ then gave evidence. He briefly affirmed his belief
in the cnlpability of tbe prisoner. The
appearance ot M. Hanotaux, the former minister; of |foreigu affairs, 'who
followed him in tho witness box, reawakened the interest nf tbe audienoe.
M. Hanotaux declnred he hnd ^nothing
to add to bis evidence given before tho
Court of Cassation. Ilejsaid .be nevir
bad cognizanco, nither'as a minister or
private individual of Jany seoret doe]
sier. He recalled tbe'oiroumstancea
urder which he took office saying foreign politics then presented grave difficulties. Tho negotiations with Great
Britain and|Belgium in regard to Afri
ca, the war in |Madagasrar, Jnnd the
stat of affairs in China, |were pointd
to. He then related hovJ he was
mnde acquainted with the Dreyfus
affair by Geuetal Meroier and M. Dn-
puy in tbe presence of M. Goerin,
and read the noteB already produced by
M. Paleologue giving tbe observations
he thought right to; make to Geueral
Meroier Regarding the proof collected against Dreyfus and the minister
of wars reply withjhis objection. M.
Hanotaux declared that when penning
the notes he forsaw difficulties. When
it became necessary to publish the
official notes in order|to satisfy a foreign embassy, the situation fas undoubtedly grave and lie forthwith requested General Mercier to Joease th.'
prosecuting of the affair. But Geueral
Mercier, was obdurate and" the affair
proceeded. Tho former minister of foreign affairs,| loniel the allegations that
he had told M. Monod^thatlne believed Dreyfns was guilty. He was us-
tonisbed at Monod's statement but tb��
latter was evidently hazy as he had
given throe versions of the conversation.
M. Demange inquired whether M.
Hunotaux was aware of the uncertainty connected with the translation
of tbe telegram dated November 21,

A CURIOUS SITUATION.
It seems not unlikely that tie extremely improbable is about to happen.
If there is any contradiction o!
terms in this, it inns; he put down to
the circumstances. Ijcss thill a month
ago there was scarcely an elector in
New Westminster so poor as to do rev-
er "ice to Mr. Henderson. Mr. Semlin
an I Mr. Cotton did uot want bim as
Attorney-General. They cast about
everywhere for a person; who would
take the portfolio, even going into tl e
Opposition camD in their search, and
contemptuously ignoring the man in
New Wesminster who, they know, was
looking for it. It was only when all
others failed, aud wheu warned that
a choice had to lie made soon for their
own positions would bo in pi ril, thai
they went to Mr. Henderson and
begged him to accept what they were
reluctant to offer. This reluctance
wns owing partly to their ^natural an
tipathy to a man who had deserted his
party, but principally to a fear that he
could not be re-elected, and defeat
meant death to their Government. He
was apparently without friends or political support. The local organ of the
Government did not want him, aud
said he was not tit to bo Attorney-
General. The local Ministerial leader,
who opposed him at the last election.
was under-itcod to havo the strongest
objections to his advancement. Among
the electors of New Westminster of
both parties there was believed to exist
a pronounced aversion to the man
who bad deserted his friends iu their
extremity and gone over to the enemy
for no other apparent reasou than thai
tbey were ou the winning side. Under
these disadvantages it would seem
that re-election was impossible, yet it
is tbe very thing that is likely to happen.
There must bo something very wrong
indeed wheu this can be regarded us
among tbe probabilities. Where is it,
and what is it? Ip political honm
aud morality enjoyed the slightest esteem in British Columbia, there could
be no suggestion of making Mr. Henderson Attorney-General, uuless the
situaticn were complicated by other
oirourastances and considerations,
oometuing or this Kino mere must be.
We get a bint of it. in a leader appearing in The Victoria Globe, recommending tbe immediate assembling of
an Opposition convention. We quote
a portion of the article :
"It is unquestiouably true that there
iB a general feeling throughout the en
tire country that a uew Opposition
party���oue that will recognize and
embrace the large additions that bave
been made to the Opposition Benti
meut since the last general eleotious���
should be at once formed. A Bplendid
opportunity is htro presented, we
think, for a slop to be taken in the
direction of meeting tbat desire. Why
not hold au Opposition convention nl
New Westminster immediately, with
delegates from every constituency in
the Province? If the matter be taken
in hand promptly the meeting could
be held in a.couploof weeks or bo. Perhaps it might uoc be well to buld an
Opposition convention; tbe meeting
might rather take the form of a gathering of gentlemen reproBoiitiug tbe
Opposition sentiment iu the various
portions of the Province. But if this
idea were carried into effect an opoor-
tunity would bo afforded for discuss
ing the best method of proceeding with
tbe formation of a new Opposition
party, and Mr. Heuderson would bo
overwhelmingly defeated."
Mr. Henderson's re-election is possible, then, not because public morality
or the sense of public honor is less in
British Colombia than elsewhere n
the Dominion, less in New Westminster than elsewhere iu tbe Province,
but because thero is no help for it.
With bis defeat would como the defeat
of the Government, and with the
present disorganized Opposition this
would moan chaos. The presout Government bave to be sustained because
there is not au Opposition to take their
place. That iB the meaning of The
Globe's suggestion, aud from appearances it would seem to be the truth.
The Province has been iu tbo throes of
a crisis for two months past, and all
that time the reputod leader of tho
Opposition is attending to his own
business iu London, apparently indifferent to the responsibilities which are
supposed to attach to his position. It
is fair to assume that be no longer desires to bo regarded as in the running,
and if the party is without a leader it-
is in a sad condition. The Miner is
disposed to think that The (.lobe's
suggestion cannot be noted npou too
soon. The first and principal requisite in a campaign agaiust the Government is an organized Opposition, with
a clearly ^defined, intelligible policy.
There can bo uo organized Opposition
without a leader.
Before thoy took office the Liberal
lenders declared lhat $40,000,000 was
i lnnious sum ; during the sit-sion jj's*
closed they procured votes lhat will
iirgregate o7nr $00,000 000, This is an
enormous .increase; each must settle
iu his own judgment whether ii is to
in- regarded as alarming,
As population increases expenditures
will increase. That is natural and
inevitable. But the expenditure is
increasing at a ratio several times
greater than that of the population.
Whether there aro cicrumstauces to
justify this will remain n disputed
[oestion, but what n.lmits'of no doubt
is that the strong Liberal abuse of a
few years ago was either insincere and
undeserved, or Iho expenditure of today is extravagant beyond the reach ol
excuse.
Main and snpplcmentaiy estimates,
together with railway subsidies,foot up
nearly $111,000,000. Bat those do not
overall tho responsibilities incurred
t lis s nsion. Parliament has also voted to ii8unie five-eighteenths of the cost
if the Pacific cable, ot which tho gros*
estimate is put at $9,000,000. The
���onntry is also pledged lo pay two per
^ent. per year for twenty years on
the cost of enlDrging existing dry
locks, equal to a capital expenditure
of between threo and fonr millious.
Man for man Briii^h Columbia contributes moie to the revenue of the Dominion than nny other Province. It
is in lhe earlier stages of its development, aud is fuller of promise than
any other nortion of Canada. Very
little expenditure of any kiud is devoted to it, and of tlio mom than (6,000. ���
OCO appropriated for railways not one
dollar conies to this Province.
Mr. Fiank Oliver, member of Parliament for Alberta, has made the
weightest objection that has yet appeared lo thu wholseale importation
if Galioians. It wa= in a speech in
iho House, and as tlio Minister of the
Interior and the other Ministers must
thus hava kuowldego of it they will
not be excused if they pursue u policy
calculated to aggravate tbo evil. Mr.
Olivor says that so objectionable are
the Galioians regarded as neighbors in
lhe Territories tbat, where located in
bunches, they drive others away. Ho
has known settlers who were in possession beforo these people camo to.,^be
forced to move, some to other settlements and others to tbe United States.
It is a curious policy that brings in
European scum to drive decent people
out ol the coniitiy.
Thero is disagreement as to the Inst
division of tlie sessiou. Ooo report
says IheGovernment's minority ���no io ���
another puts it at 17. The Government will probably think that it was
low enough iu either case.

II. M. Vincent, thn Baker street
morchant tailor, is before the readers
of The Miner this morning with u
largo disolay advertisement, whioh
will he found on the fourth page of
this issue. Mr. Vincent hus just re
neived $i000 worth of the latest patterns
of full and winter goods for tueu'B
clothing, as well as tho latest fashion
plates from the East. His disolay ot
fancy vestings nnd rich and nobby
cloths is well worth viewing.
It was thought that the excitement
attending the eight-hour fracas in the
Board of Trade would last some time
and be responsible for well attended
��� neetiugs foi some time to come.
However, there was not a qnorum at
the meeting called foi last evening
which was consequently adjouru.'d sine
die. It would have heen a great opportunity for the "Opposition" to have
turned out iu force and pass a resolution prohibiting all mine owners and
bankers f��oui membership.

P. Burn's & 'Jo., was brought down to
the bridge yesterday, but had to be
laken back to the suiing at Sutherland
cieek. This will l,o brought in this
afternoon with seven other cars ot
merchandise. Orders were sent oui
yesterday to rush all Boundary freight
vin Robson to Cascade. It is certain
that the U, P. R. expects to do an immense business at this point, as time
experienced employees have been suit
here to care for it. As si ou as possi

Be Erected Shortly.
It is rorv much within tbre range 11
prohabiliiics that within a short tiri.e
ihe buildings now occupied by Millo

ihe corner of Ward and Baker slrotto
will be supplanted by the handsomest

taken up, a two or three story block
with (il) feet frontage on Baker sireet
and 00 feet on Ward sireet, will le
