by au iucrease of the forces aroiiud the

Will all he consolidated. The details
of the ease are as follows:
it appears that the menwereengaged
in the Little Phil Mine and when It was
shut down a few months ago the
miners were dismissed and did nut
receive their wages. Mr. Coleman
was having the development work
done on the understanding lhat he
was to purchase the properly from Mr.
Godsel, of Pineher Creek, N. W. '!'.,
who is the real owner of the mine.
The men who are In arrears have
worked from two to three months
without being paid. They have
therefore entered uctlon against Mr.
Coleman personally and are also
trying to got a Hen against the mine
and have the latter sold to pay the
wages. Ilodscl claims that he did
not engage the men, therefore Ihe
Hen must he entirely mi Mr. Coleman's

Great Britain. Pekin is heard of now
almost as mnch us Pretoria, while
countless correspondents and amateur
diplomats write and talk learnedly
upon Ihe perils presented hy the Far
Eastern crisis.
In view cf the geueral pnhlio concern nud despatches from China, it is
rather remarkable to learn that the
Boxers appear to hnvo but little nft'eot
upon the great business between China
and England. Tbe largest houses in
London, trading with the Far East
corporations, insnraiice companies,
hanks nnd merchants, are unanimous

The manager of a leading bank,
with branches at Tien Tsin and other
places in ('hina, says: "We get telegrams daily from our representatives,
They seldom even mention the rising."
However this section of the business
world, and those whose capital they
represented arc nutnrally awaiting
the outcome ofthe crisis with anxiety.
They are apparently more disturbed
over the possibility of the Powers
fulling out among themselves nfter
the Boxers receive Iheir quietus, than
over the amount of the damage the
Boxers will wreak prior to that

that the United States has no intcii-

of crises   the    world    over,    ill which
British Interests are virtually concerned, that the average reader of
English newspapers finds it hard to
keep track of them or place them in

Statement from Capetown.
The English newspapers devote
many editorials to the question.
Those who are inspired show no desire to have Sir John Gordon Bprlggs
in sole power and Mr. Schreiner in
the Opposition ranks, for apart from
the fact that it is doubtful if he can
maintain his majority, the opinion
prevails with the Colonial ollice, and
is expressed by almost everybody
coining from Europe, regardless of
political faith, that Sprlggs is utterly
unfitted in point of ability to steer
the Colony out of the present crisis.
Some of tlie English papers which
are not inspired, notably The Globe,
bitterly depreciate begging Mr.
Schreiner to continue in oflice or even
to help out in the dilcma, drawing
parallells between his utterances and
actions before and after the issue of
war was assured. Those who know
Cape politics thoroughly tell the Associated Press that if Mr. Rhodes
could reassert his former Influences
over Mr. Schreiner all would Ik- well.
But Mr. Rhodes is iu Rhodesia and
Mr. Schreiner has recently expressed
himself as being as bitterly vindictive as ever over what he considered to

There is mnch speculation us to what
thi ontconie will be. Shrewd observers
express the opinion that a majority of

lo endorse tho Dunsmuir Government
on the ground thnt tbore is too much
of an island flavor about it. However,
opinion is about equally divided on
this point.

watched with great interest.
It is likely lhat both Messrs. Tinner

is possible   that   the   Premier   will be
elected by acclamation in South Nanaimo. Mr Yates is credited with u desire to agaiu try conclusions with Mr.
Eberts in Soutli Victoria.

John Houston's friends lu Nolson
were anxiously awaiting news from
Victoria yesterday. They got a little
but it was not what they had hoped
for. It was to the effect tbat influences were being Iirought to bear to
keep His Worship from getting what
he went to Victoria after, aud that it
"looked like Wells," meaning that
W. C. Wells, niemlier-elect from East
Kootenay, was in line for tbe portfolio of Minister of Mines.
It is generally admitted by Mr.
Houston's friends tbat that gentleman
went to the const ln search of a portfolio. That he expected to be called
upon, in tho event uf certain conditions arising, is well known, but when
he left Nelson he was hardly prepared
to find upon his arrival in Victoria
that a Dunsmuir-Turner government
had been formed while he was speed-
lug along eoinfoi ml.le stowed away in
a lower north ou the Imperial Limited.
llui notwithstanding the fact tbat Mr.
Houston had been always an opponent
of the Turner party, his friends here
say that be would he perfectly willing
to join with Messrs. Donsniuir,Turner
and Eberts if that step wonld bring to
In in what he has cherished from the
beginning of tho Into campaign, tha

that as thu Cntlou party is dead, and
its leader consigned with due formalities to his political grave, Mr. Honston

party tin may chooBe, and that ha
would undoubtedly join that party
whioh wonld do tlie most for htm.
Therefore, he would swallow Turnerism, bo tho pill bittor or sweet.
Willi (Iovernor Mackintosh defeated in Ihe Kossland Biding Mr.
Houston has felt since his election a

present at a caucus to be held in Vancouver on Monday and that In the
sending of these messages he hud beeu

The prompt action   of the  members of the  Council, and  especially
of Aid. Irvine,Chairman of the Public  Works  Committee,   in   dealing
with the corporation  drillers' strike
the other day, meets with the entire
approval of the business men of the
City, notwithstandingthe thinly veiled protest of Mr. Houston's  paper.
The  civic  authorities   cannot   too
quickly    get     rid    of   men    who
are  not satisfied    to   put   in   nine
hours of good honest work  on our
streets for the  very  liberal  pay of
three dollars and twenty-five  cents.
Railway contractors can employ  all
the men they want,   for the  same
work,   for $2.50   per   day  of  ten
hours.    Why  should  the  ratepayers of Nelson be made to pay more ?
It may  be a gratification  to Mayor
Houston to have his little army of laborers at his back, to vote him  into
office and salary, but the people who
pay the taxes are under no  obligation to stand the cost of  his   popularity.     If the men think  an   eight-
hour day is long  enough, let   them
have their eight-hour day; but  the
elected trustees of the  City's  interests will,   if they  are  honest,  see
that the people are   not   robbed  to
give  it  to them.    Let  them   take
their eight-hour pay for their eight-
hour day, or go.    As it is, they are
being paid a higher wage   than prevails in other city in Canada or  the
United   States.    If   determined to
force something more, under the encouragement of the recent election,
let them bring on the issue.    In any
event, however, it is to be  distinctly  understood that  the   ratepayers
of Nelson will object  to  any  gross
imposition, and  it is a   satisfaction
to them to know that they are in no
danger of being subjected   to  it as
long as they have  Aid.   Irvine  and
his colleagues in the Council to protect them against it.
The stock of a mining company
with which some prominent citizens
of Montreal are associated went up
fifty points or so on the strength ol
reports of a rich strike, and then it
went down again because the reports were supposed to be exaggerated. Whereupon it is concluded
on the Montreal Mining Exchange
that the mining industry of British
Columbia has received a "black
eye." The members ofthe Montreal
Mining Exchange have something
yet to learn of the mining industry
of this Province; indeed, it would
not be far out to say that they have
all to learn concerning it. It is not
depending on the fortunes of any
Montreal company, by any manner
of means. Nor in British Columbia,
nor among those who know what
mining is,does the success of a mining prospect depend on the names of
those who may happen to be behind
it. The metalliferous resources of
this Province are quite too abundant and apparent to allow of any
serious check to their development
by the disappointment of a few
Montreal gentlemen.
If Sir Wilfrid Laurier is not to
have it to be understood that any
utterance of his on the floor of the
House is mere empty wind, silvery
sound signifying nothing, he will
take early cognisance of the fact
that the people of British Columbia
have disapproved in the most emphatic fashion of their Lieutenant-
Governor and desire his dismissal.
Some remarks of the Federal Premier two or three months ago led to
the expectation that the official head
of Mr. Melnnes would roll in the
dust if his arbitary actions in dismissing Mr. Semlin and introducing' the very obnoxious Mr. Martin
were not condoned by the electors,
and there is a pretty unanimous desire that the threat may be made
good. Mr. Mclnnes's usefulness
is gone, and it is the popular wish
that his corporal body go with it.

If Mr. Dunsmuir shall keep on as I
he has begun he will give the Province a strong Government. Mr.Turner's return to the Finance Department will be accepted as an assurance that our financial affairs will
be well managed, and that he is
again in a position to put his experience and knowledge of affairs
generally at the service of the people, will do much towards re-establishing public confidence. It was

be made Attorney-General, but Mr.

long and useful service in calling

There was a love feast at Cran-
brook, to celebrate the election of
the Martin candidate, Mr. Smith,
Among tbe feasters was Mr. Costi-
gan, wbo was himself a candidate,
although less in opposition to Mr.
Smith than to Mr. Fernie. As he
succeeded in defeating Mr. Fernie,
he had every reason to join in celebrating the election of Mr, Smith.
This was not the full measure of
Mr. Costigan's amiability, however.
In the course of his speech he took
occasion to defend Mr. Martin, especially in regard to his career in
Manitoba, and read a mysterious
letter which conclusively established
that gentleman's political virtue.
Archbishop Langoin, of St. Boniface, said the other day that tha
Manitoba school question is not settled. Senator Bernier says it is not
settled. The Victoria Times is endeavoring to make il appear that
Sir Charles Tupper believes it is not
settled. The late Archdeacon Tache,
a great ecclesiastic, a great statesman, and a good man, said that no
head of tried and trusted colleagues, \ V**?*00 COuld ho considered as ���*���

reason and common  sense have not
entirely deserted us. If he is hesitating in the selection of a Minister
of Mines, The Miner ventures to
suggest the name of Mr. Taylor, of
Revelstoke, regretting at the same
time that it is not in the happy position to recommend its nearer
neighbor, Mr. Keen, of Kaslo.

scientists, "Can alizarin he obtained from

mo ot a story I once heard Of a little girl

Susie had a habit ot saying "g-O-O-d,

to look so funny when she spelled words

the Bchoolroom.
So one duy tho tencher snld: "Suzle,
dear, you mustn't say g-o-o-d; say g-dou-
ble-o-d.   Try and remember, my child."
Just then they cume to the old familiar
phrase in the regulation first render: "Up,
up, Jane! The sun Is risen!" It was little Suzle's turn. Looking up with a cute
smlls to catch the look of sympathy nnd
approval she felt sure she merited for remembering the rule ot "doubling things,"
said she, without even a Bign of hesitation: "Double up, Jane! The huu bus

was ou Montrose links, In England, and
the players were Lord Kennedy nnd n
Mr. Cruickshanks. The mutch, which

was that it should be played off Immediately. Bach man's caddie carried a lantern, and s light wns placed at the hoie.
Otherwise the match wns fought out in

Am I right or not? If you say I am not,
I will givo back the sugar, if you say I
am, 1 am cutltled to It, and I'll keep it."
"My friend," replied Wise iu his gentlest tone, "you put a delicate and unpleasant responsibility on mo. Hadn't
you butter decide the matter for yourself:"
"No," replied the fellow curtly. "1
know what your opinion is going to be,
] and I want you to give it so that this
whole crowd can hear it."
"Then," said Wise, "I advise you that
tho sugar Is yours. The widow cannot
take it from you.   She hnB no redress."
"Ah!" cried the mnn, turning to the
spectators.   "What did I tell you 7"

to them.
These nre the people who talk
about bad eyes in old age.
Death and glasses come to all.
Blessed are they who die  young.
Blessed are they who use glasses
when needed.
When in doubt about the needful
time, or ignorant ol the proper kind,
come our way. .    ,
