WBLLG00D-BYE.JOE,
Hope You Haven't Lost That
Carpet Bag.
STORMY PETREL IS OUT
Eosult of  the'. Govermi ent   Oauous���A
Budget of Interesting News Froai
tho Coast Cities.
Mr. Joseph Martin can now pack np
tlmt carpet bag and look for new
fields to conquer. lie has bowed
to the ineviruole and resigned. Early
yesterdtiy afternoon Tlio Miner received a telegram saying: "Martin has
p ninncd."
Prior to that message Tbe Miner's
special correspondent at Viotoria wired
as follows:
"It is impossible to ascertain ox-
nelly what occurred at tho oauous as
Ihe members wero sworn to secrecy
net it lias lenked ont tnat Martin mot
ivilli a severe rebuff, only live mem-
beis speaking in his favor. The
ehiiiges preferred by Ministers wore
reiterated and discussed but no vote
wns taken to ascertain the sentiment
ot the meeting. The general impression among politicians here todny is
thnt Martin got much the worst of it.
Everything is now waiting for tlie
Governor."
The Associated Press supplies the
following information :
Victoria, July 27.��� Although what
transpired at caucus yesterday of Government supporters bus not been divulged, it is evident that tbe result
has impelled Hon. Joseph Martiu to
decide tn resign hid office, as Attorney-
General before tho return of the Lieo-
teimut Governor should lend to his dismissal from Iho cabinet. It hnH transpired that today Martin said farewell to
the offioinls in his department nud
leaves for Vancouver tonight. While
the subject in the ono topic of conversation here it is quite apparent that
publio opinion is piactically unanimous in approval of tlio Premier's rio-
innnd for Martin's resignation.
There is a general belief that the caucus wns so hositlo to tho Attorney-
General that be lost no time in resigning to ant'.oipito certain dismissal.
As another result of this unanimity
among tho Government supporters,
Martin realized that with tho exception of himself thero will not ho a sin
gle defection from tho Government
ranks, that the Government will still
command substantial majority in the
Legislature and be perfectly independent of any support thut tho opposition
or the necessity ot forming a coalition
cabinet to carry m toe administration.
Even the (^ernmen: s opponents
admit I bat Martins letiiemtm wi.i
strengthen the Government in pUblh
opinion, while its supporters are jubilant over the removal of the oue
thing which has caused it to he regarded with suspicion and doubt.
There are all sorts of minors, M to Martin's successor; they are without, the
least foundation, nr.ri matters will not
even be ronsidered before tho the Governor's retmn.
Viotona, July 27.��� The Government
caucus terminated nbont midnight last
night. The members all refused to
divulge the result and it is understood
that nothing will be announced until tho return of the Lieutonant Governor. Speoial to the Province says :
It wns learned that the Government
members at the oanens endorsod tho
notion taken by Premier Semlin in
asking Hon. Joseph Martin to resign.
Mr. Martin, it is understood, some
time ago announced that ho would resign should those presont at iho Ofti'OUS
deonlod against him, but up to the
present vritiug, no resignation has
been reaeivod from the deposed Attorney-General. Tnere is nothing in the
talk of a coalition Government, whatever, nor is there are further change to
be made, snve in the portfolio of thu
Attorney-General. At nresent the
likely successor of Mr. Martin is being
discussed, and the omnion whioh gains
tho biggest following is that the position will be filled by a man not at ores-
sent in the Legislature. W. W. B. Mo-
rimes, is Bpnkeu of. The meeting
which lasted from S :80 to 12 :30, wbb a
nniet one. There were no nlteroations
or heated arguments, bnt there was,
it is  said,   oonsiderable nlain talk.

Vancouver, July 27.���Vancouver's
growing importance as a trade center
was exemplified today when tbe returns for the Vaucouver clearing houBe
for tho woek jnst ended were announced as amounting to |i,oo4,77!). This
is the first time that the hank clearings
of either Vancouver or Viotoria havo
gone over the million dollar mark.
The extra business done from the
notth and tho money brought down
havo swelled the large amounts of lo-
oal business to   the figure stated.
The French warship Protet will soon
bo seen in Vancouver harbor. The
Protet is a third class oruiser. The
chief French mon of war seldom leavo
European water. Tlio oruiser has
been in Southern Pacific waters. When
she arrives it will be the first time
that a French man of war has entored
the Narrows since Vancouver was established. The Freuch naval division
visited Victoria three or four years
ago, hut did not oome to this port.
One vessol may also go to San Francisco. Vancouver has welcomed Russian and Italian warships in the port,
now ihe glad hand will be extended
to   Freneli sailors.
Or. Rose, senior resident houBe surgeon at the Royal Victoria hospital
Montreal, has accented tho position ot
house surgeon lo Kootenay Lake General Hospital, Nelson.
Thomas J. Gornud, aged 19, a nn-
tivo of Bridgetown, Barbadoes islands,
died in the city Hospital. The young
man earned a livelihood hy working on
tho wharves. His friends in Bridge
town are reported wealthy.
The transports in the service nf the
United States will burn British Columbia coal. John Uosenfelds & sons.have
been awarded the conrraot to supply
the Government with 10,000 tons of
Wellington coal for use in the transports.
Salmon fishermen here are incensed
at the reply of the Premier of the Do-
miuion to the request that the Government should protect Oanadian fishermen. Tho fishermen are asking why
they are heavily taxed under the rigid
system of license, if when a small expenditure is required for their protection, they aro to be told that there are
"no funds available" ami that the Canadian Government can do nothing for
tlioin. The New Westminster Columbian says: "What they complain most
of iB that the Canadian Government is
doing nothing to help them to avoid
fulling in to the ha..ds of the United
States revonue cutters, which watch
closely for such unwary Oanadian fishermen us allow their boats and nets to
drift across the imaginary boundary
line. Ab far as tbe fishermen are concerned the line is purely imaginery,
there being no lani. mark on tbe shore,
whio.i thjy can distinguish at any distance, and, before they are aware of
having crossed the line,a ontter steams
rapidly out from Polut Roberts and
pounces upon them. The boats, nets,
etc, nre confiscated and tbe fishermen
are turned loose ou shore and directed
to the nearest point on the Canadian
liu3. Their gear is hold by the United
nates authorities until the olose jf the
.eason, when it is pnt np at auction
and a deaf ear is tnrned to all offers
by the owners to redeem it, and even
heavy deposits have been refused by
men whose liviug depended npi,n using
their boats, aud nets for the remainder
of the season. Thus, the keen owners
of the salmon traps protent their interests, rightly or wrongly, and so far
this mouth, about twenty-five Conad
inn fishermen havo had to give up
their gear. Inmost cases, it belonged to
a cannery but individuals have been
among tlie sufferers."
Another batch of victims of tho Edmonton trail have arrived by the
Queen. The party includes F.W. Ferguson, of Vermouth, N, S. ; H. Y.
Jones, of Swift Current; P. I. Kean,
of Man diester, N. H. ; 0. McQuin, of
Liverpool, N. S. ; F. M. Simpson,
,;nd E. Cosmnn, of Yarmouth, N. S. ;
J. MorriBou, of Srlkirk, Man; H. F.
Bartheluia", of Toronto. A number of
these men have had tbe doubtful pleasure of having their names published as
dead. All have the same stories of
hardships, and suffering to toll, of a
vuin quest for gold, and a journey that
lasted nearly two years, over a trail
that existed in imagination. Mr. Ferguson, oue of the party, states that of
the Halifax party who went iu over
the Edmonton trail,only oue roan died.
His n ime was Uimmock, and he died
of scurvv. A looal paper recently pub
lished a" sensational story about these
Halifax men, stating that the entire
parcv had died by scurvy, starvation
and "drowning, men arriving today
say that with the exception of Dim-
niook, montioned above, the party are
all well and making their way baok to
the Coast.

mine, nonr Foit Steelo, B. O., and
flvo other properties in tho same
group, viz , the Buokhorii, Dieud-
naught, Maveriok, Daffodil, and 0. K.

the North Star mine, the most famous
of the group, have been steadily developed for some years and during the
oeriod of development about 7,000
tons of ore wero shipped to American
smelters hy steamer. Owing to Ihe
treacherous navigation several of the
steamers were wrecked, and it was
decided to await tbe completion of the
Canadian Pacific through the Crow's
Nest Pass before making further shipments. Arrangements have since beon
mado with the Canadian Pacific to
bnild a branch line from the mines to
Cranbrook, and it is expected that this
br-neh will be completed in Sep

House  Tomorrow   Night.
When Hali Adlai. "The Torribio
Turk," "Tho Sultan's Lion," comes

men ready to wrestle with him and
tbe prospects are bright for a first class
evening's sport in the Opera House, on

Thero are 275 pounds of Hali Adlai
and it is chiefly musclo. He is not such
a ferocious being bb he is described but
is a good naturcd athlete who bandies

as is consistent with the sport. He
has wrestled in all parts of the world ;
he has defeated the lamented Yousouf
who went to the bottom of the ocean
with a belt of gold around his corpulent person, he has laid the short and
stocky Ernest Roeber's two shculders
on the mat at the same time; ho has
laid low the beantiifully constructed
Casper Muller from 3untn Africa, and
linB beat Dan McLeod, Farmer Bums,
Tom Canuiion, Charles Moth aud
others. So he is a first rnte man. His
offer here is to give one dollar for each
minute any man stands before him
without being thrown. He will take
ou all that come along and tho offer is
open to the world. Tho contests will
commence at 9:80 and the Turk will
wrestle each man twice
There is talk of arranging a match
with a powerful miner who works near
Nelson. Arrangements will be marie
today. Tho Turks' mnuager would like
any man who wished to take a fall

LETTER STEALING CASE.
The  United States Vico   Consul   Did
Not Wish to Testify.
Montreal, July 27,���The chief argument in the Bell case today was ou a
point as to whether tho Americnu-Ger-
inau vice consul could be obliged to
give testimony anont the stealing nf
the Carranza letter ugaiust bis own
wishes When Mr. Wei, for tho prosecution,asked for the administration of
oath to the Uuited States representative, tho latter objeoted, stating that
he wbb in his official capacity. Magistrate Lafontaine ruled that according
to the code of procedure Mr. German
would be obliged to testify provided
proper affidavits were made showing
tbat he was au essential witness. He
was subpoenaed by both sides. Ernest
W Sumroerskill, coraplninaut, was on
the stand, the text ot his testimony
being that he believed Bell had told
tbe truth wheu be swore to the affidavit confessing the theft of the Carranza letter. Detective Kellert, who
was arrested and discharged over a year
ago on a oharge of having sto.on the
letter, will be on the stand tomorrow.
Mr Kellert says that the letter was
taken to the headquarters of the
Spanish attaches by Chief Redfern of
the Beaton Seoret Service.

American Expedition   is   Victorious���
Filipinos   Routed.
Manila, July 27.-4 p. m.���Au expo
dition comprised of troops from Sun
Pedro , Macati, Pnsig and Morong,
under Brigadier-General R. H, Hall,
yesterday captured Colamba, an Important trading town on tho south shore
bf Lnguno de Buy. There weio two
hours of sharp fighting during which
four soldiers were killed anri 12 wounded. The trendies commanding tbo harbor were under wnter bnt tne swampiness of the land made the work harder.
The troops borrowed cafeocs on Tuesday
night, Tho forcn comprised 400 of
the. Washington volunteers, 4<.0 of the
21st infantry, 250 of the 4th cavalry,
and two guns of the FirBt Artillery.
These with the gunboats assembled
opposite Calamba Wednesday afternoon. Crowds of peoplo in carts and
on foot were seen rushi-ig to the
hills. Nativos escaping from Culambn
in onnoes said a hundred insnrgonts
held the town. A force under Captain McGrath of 21st infantry and Captain Eltouhord landed east of the town
but found a river intervening. Oap-
tain McGrath nud Lieutenant Bnlson
swam the river under a tire from
twenty Xviauscr rifles. Having crossed
the stream the officers procured a ens-
coe to ferry the troops over. The insurgents retreated through the town
shooting from houses and bushes as
they fled to the bills. Three members
of the VVashingon regiment waded
trom the cascoes thringh swamps often
shoulder deep while a group of Filipinos concealed in haystacks were shooting at then until the Napidan focused
her fourteen pounders and Catling
gnus on tho stacks for a few minuteB.
Most of the work was done before the
Washington volunteers oould reaoh the
town. The Filipinos left three dead.
Of the cauualities on the Amerioun
side two of the killed and wounded
belonged to the 2)st infantry. Tbere
was much shooting by Araigos, who
emerged from the hushes with white
Hags. Aftor the fight, a dozen men
holding up tneir bands, and shouting
"Castillanos," met the American cavalry. Even Spanish soliders greeted
the Americans hysterically. There
were 50 Spanish prisoners of whom
some were civil officers and some were
soldiers. They had been given the
cboice of joining tbe Fiilipino army
or becoming servants to Filipinos,
and chose the army, intending to surrender at the first opportunity. Most of
tho civilians reached tbe American
lines during the fighting but the insurgents took the others away witn them
in their retreat. General Hall captured 12 Filipinos with guns. Major
General Lawton, Prof. Jjean-Worces-
ter, of the American-Philippine Commission. Mrs. Lawton and Gen Law-
ton's son aooompanied the expedition
on board a launch aud set cooly in an
unprotected beat olose to the shore during the fighting, tbe bullets splashing
about thorn. Today Gen. Hall brought
to Manila tbe Spaniards, whom tbe
expedition had released them from captivity of more than a year. Lieutenant Larson, commanding the Napidan,
today, found a long missing Spanish
gunboat, which had been covered with
bushes aud fish nets so as not to resemble a vessel.
The Filipinos having met reinforce
moms, and thinking that the Americans had evacuated tbe town,descended
the hills today intending to reocoupy
Calamba. Gen. Hall drove tbem back.
Gen. Hall v ill leave a garrison at Oa-
"amba.
LACROSSE CLUB'S TRIP.
They are Beginning to Get   Soared  at
the OoaBt Already.
Vancouver News-Advertiser: There'll
be the hottest kind of time at Brook-
ton Point on Saturday, August 12th,
wheu the City lacrosse twelve crosses
sticks with tho fast Nelson club. Nobody dare say that anyone of the teams
is certain of winning. The outcome
of the match is purely speculative.
Tbe result of a lacrosse match played
under circumstances like those attending the forthcoming game is as nnsate
to bet on as a horse race or an election.
Tbo ohumpionship of the Canadian
Lacrosse Association was won last
year by a tenm drilling on the borders of rook-ridden Muskoka. Tho
deciding game was the biggest laorosso
surprise of the season. Tbe Nelson
Miner of July 21 says that Mr. A. E.
Suckli ng, of Vancouver, wbb the other
night an interested and oritical spectator at the Nelson team's bard practice, aud he expressed Burptise at the
numbor and ability of the locai stick
handlers. The team will play Vancouver on Saturday, August 12 aud
while "Boney " cannot see anyone but
Vancouver as winners, he was kind
enough to admit that the Nelsons will
give the different Coast teams a hot
argument, and it won't be for want
of oondition if they don't.for the practices are both regular and hard. The
game for the championship ot the
Province with New Westminster will
probably be played in Vanoonver on
Angnst 19, as tin conditions here are
most favorable. One thing appears
certain, and that iB that Nelson expects to win from every team she
meets on the Coast. It looks as i* the
Nelson-Vancouver game, being tbe first
of the series, will be the game of the
season from tbe standpoint of interest. ''
NEWS FROM  FRANCE.
Paris, July 27. ���Generals Jamont,
nnd Herve, mombers of the supreme
council of war, were today reported to
have resigned out of sympathy for
General de Norgrier who was removed
from the supreme counoil of war on
Wednesday. This report created much
excitement,   as   it   would   be  almost
revolutionary for officers such as these
to pursue the course indicated. Prime
Minister M. Wnldook-Rousseau, ordered that a strenuous effort be made to
unearth the fabricator  of the story.
Ronnes.July 27.���Tho illness of Captain Dreytus was slight. He has recovered. ' His friends say his mental
and bodily condition is excellent.
Paris, July 27 ���The Temps in an ar-
tiole printed today, expresses bolief
that fuller light noon tbo Frnnco-
Amerioau treaty woulri not he superfluous ndding: "What is known, however, is sufficient to cause rejniciug at
the 'rapproachement' of which it is
the testimony. The U. 8. furnishes
raw products and we return niimufac-
tures. " Opponents of the treaty think
this will be reversed nud that Franco
will be inundated with American
manufactures, but tho faots do not justify their fears.
NO RACE YESTERDAY.
The Sea Was Too   High For tho Small
Yachts  on Lake St. Louis.
Dcrva], Que., July 27.���The race
committee for tho Senwanhnku cup decided to cnll the race off today on account of high wind nnd sea.

United States. The first contest was
between a yacht from England aud the
Amerioan clubs representative aud
the latter won. In 189(1 the Royal St.
Lawrence Yaoht Club of Montreal
challenged for the cup. G. Herrick
Duggar designed and sailed the challenge whioh won tbe oup in a series of
races in Oyster Bay. Since then the
Seawanhaka Club has beeu endeavoring to win it baok but so far without
success. Mr. Duggar has designed and
sailed the boats that have since retained the cup and the Seawanhaka Clubs
representative has been Clinton H.
Crane, who als:> designs ajd sui Is his
own boats. The races cause intense
excitement in the East and are followed by a large number of excuision boats
and private crafts. The contests take
place in Lake St. Lonis, 14 miles
from Montreal. The Royal St. Lawrence yacht club's handsome house is at
Dorval, fonr miles below the courso.
Mr. Duggan is given the credit for

that the Senate Reform resolution will
not be gone on witn this sessiou.
There was another profitless discussion on preferential trade in the House
today on motion for supply. It was
started by Mr. McNeill,who refused io
accept the resolution which Sir Wilfrid Laurier had given him,and whioh
was along tho lines of the recent tariff
matter Mr. McNeill wanted tbe resolution confined to tariff preferences
only and Sir Wilfrid included other
concessions. Mr. McNeil moved his
own resolution and flnnllv Sir Charles

What They Think in England
of Kootenay.
MR.DRUMMOND'S VIEWS
Oapital for Granite Mines Was Over-Subscribed���Kelson Considered the
Ooming Town,
Mr. O. Drumniond.the managing director of the Duncan MineB, arrived.
hero yesterday from England via New
York and Spokane. Mr. Drummond
was aooompanied by Mr. Archibald, a
director of the Queen Bess Proprietary
Co., and by Mr. Ernest R. WoakeB,
the chief engineer for the Duncan
Mines.
Mr. Drummond expressed himself to
Tbe Miner as much surprised and gratified at the groat advance iu the size
of tbe town. But this was nothing
more than his company had anticipated
for, in Londou, Nelson and Vancouver
are considered to be the coming towns
of Britih Columbia.
Mr. Drummond said that British
Columbia mines had now a recognized
market on tne London Stock Exchange.
British investors were beginning to
recognize the value and importance ot
properties iu this Provinoe more especially those in Kootenay; in faet
Kootenay stood higher in the investors
calender than the Klondike. No doubt
this was in a great measnre dne to the
success of certain mining companies,
such as tbe B. A. G, the Hall Mines,
the London & B. O. Gold Fields and
(he modestly added) bis own oompany.
Ab to the recent stagnation following
upon the Eight-Hour legislation, h
had not as yet had any serious effect
upon tbe London market. Those wbo
knew the oountry seemed to think
tbat the trouble was only transient and
that as soon as a few undesirable agitators were removed from high places,
things would revert to their former
satisfactory status.
The flotation of the Granite Gold
Mines Limited was a gieat suooess in
London. At first, owing to the difficulties with the minors it was feared
thnt the public might fight shy of tbe
issue. The shares were all underwritten but tbe letters from applicants for
shares largely exceeded the issue so the
underwriters were immediately relieved by the public.
He (Mr. Drummond) personally,
though not an engineer, yet had, from
reports nnd actual results, an unbounded faith in both the Granite and Royal
Canadian mines and confidently looked forward to a large rnturn tor tbe
money sunk in them.
With regard to the street railway he
could give no details as tbe management was entirely in the hands of Mr.
F. Peters and Mr. Halifax Hall, his
duty beng to see that the linancial part
of the concern was well supplied.
Hut he could say that all the neoei si ry
supplies had been ordered; the cars
were to be of the very best quality
and would be fitted up regardless of
cost, and be confidently expected that
they wonld be running before the end
of September.
Tho British Electric Traotion Company (the parent oouipmy) had such
unbounded faith in tbo future prospects of Ne.son that they had decided
not to place any Nelson Tramway
shares ou the market but keep them
all   themselves.
Mr. WoakeB is a leading authority
on silver mining. He bns recently
beeu engineer for the Darien and Tol-
imi mines in Panama, two large producers. He leaves for the Queen Bobs
mine today. Mr. Woakes will make
Nolson his headquarters for a considerable time.
Mr. Drutninond looks upon his Nelson real estate as a valuable asset.
At the present moment all tbe real
property purchased in Nelson by tbe
Duncan mines is held by a Mr.
Gaicke���a prominent man in electrical
undertakings iu Londou���and himself.
Mr. Drnnimond ia the guest of Captain Duncan and will be in Nelson for
about a fortnight.
THE AMERICA  OUP.
London, July 27.���The Yachting
World issued today, contains a long ar��
tide on Shamrock's chances in the con*
test for the Amerioan Cup. Starting
on tbe assumption that Vigilant
and Britannia were equal the writer
argues that shamrock showed herself to
be capuble of beating Britannia in a
medernte breeze 25 to 20 minutes over
a 80 mile course. With the time allow*
auce Shamrock's net superiority wonld
be fifteen to twenty minutes. As De*
fendor's superiority over Vigilant in
sailing the same course is estimated at
Bix minutes and Columbia's superiority
over Defender is assumed to be three
minutes, it is estimated that Colombia's superiority over Vigilant is nine
minutes. Therefore, aooording to the
Yachting World's artiole, there are excellent grounds for belief that in the
present condition of both yachts,
Shamrock will win.

THE CAUCUS   CAUCUSED.
At tbis writing the conclusion of the
caucus tbat has beeu in session for two
dayB at the Capital has not beeu given
out for publication. The member'
bave managed to keep their Becret to
themselves, for a wonder; but iu a
day or two they will bo vying with
each other to see which can give the
fullest account of their deliberations. In
tbe meantime readers of Tne Miner
will have to content themselves with
the brief story telegraphed by our oor-
r&5jODrtBDt.    ��~s.    fa*.   V^   teU^'VUcl^
but as far as it goos we Bhould   be disposed to recommend it as reliable.
It is not quite clear who oalled the
caucus, whether Mr. Martin and his
friends or M<\ Semlin and fcis friends.
If Mr. Martin was the first to Buggest
tc leave his case to the arbitration of a
party caucus, he doubtless relied with
confidence on the support of a majority. What he expeoted to happen next
has not appeared, but so long as Mr.
Martin triumphed over his enemies he
is not the one to oare what happened,
even although it rent his party beyond
the faintest hopo of repairing. Nor is
it clear what any of them expeoted to
happen in any case. To sustain Mr.
Martin would be vote want of con
fldenoe in the Premier; to back up
the Premier would not neoessanly
mean that Mr. Martin was got rid of.
Ho could still withhold bin resignation, and thus compel the Lieutenant-
Governor to act between the contending factions.
The Miner correspondent wireB in
effect that the caneus has determined
to drop Mr. Martin. If that turbulent
and intractable individual shall decide
to aocept chis verdict of hia party,
and shall send in his resignation without more ado, the situation will be
rendered simple and easy of final settlement. Should he resist, however,
it would mean the disruption of the
Ministerial party, and either a "coalition" would follow or a new deal
would be made, with a dissolution and
general eleotion as a nocessary condition.
PS ���Mr. Martin has resigned.
iostock'B argument will then press for
ecognition, backed by the develop-
neuts that will evolve themselves in
he meantime. Under that measure tbe
ircuinstauces of British Columbia
vill compel consideration; nnd it
nay be that the Kootenays, instead of
icing given one member, as iB their
ight uow according to population,
.uay be entitled to two.
SPEAKING IN TIME.
Of Atlin and its prospects The Victoria OolouHt says: "The district has
hnd a very unfortunate start. At
the very outset, thero was u misunderstanding as to whether it was or was
not in tbis Proviuce. When tbis was
settled a good deal of bad judgment
.vas exhibited en the part of the Gold
Oommissiouer, from which confusion
ultimately resulted. Then the Alien
Exclusion law came in operation.
When spring opened, and pooplo wore
teady to work, everything was bo unsettled that most prospeotors found
their hands tied. On top of tbis came
ibo extension of the close season and
the refusal of the Goverumeut to issue
hydraulic leaseB or grant free miners'
certificates to corporations intending
to engage iu placer mining. Any district, but one in which people had
groat confidence, would have been
completely kill 3d by such a series of
unfavorable events, hut Atlin is coming through it all right aud is demonstrating its right to bo regarded as one
of the most promising mining districts on the continent.''

<J   AT COST.
Some of Mr. Bostoak's newspapers
have published Mr. linstock's speech
on the Redistribution Bill, or, rather,
tho speech he delivered during the debate on the seoond reading of that
measure. It was not a speech on tbe
Redistribution Bill, but on the distribution of constituencies in British
Oolumbia.a quite different matter, and
one in no way affected by the Bill
in question. It was a good speech on
a subject tbat was not before tbe
House, his points being clearly made,
and the whole argument temperately
and concisely put. He made out an
excellent case for the division of Yale-
Cariboo, and the concession of a member to the Kootenay distriot.
That, however, was not the question.
The purpose of the Redistribution
Bill was to undo the gerrymander
of 1S82 in Ontario; tbat, at least, was
tbe intention as declared by the Government, and it was borne ont by the
Bill, which confined itself almost exclusively to tho constituencies of that
Province. There was no pietence of a
gnueral redistribution. It thus happened that Mr. Bostook's speech was
not exactly appropriate to tho ocoaeion.
Tbe increase of population over the
Mainland of British Columbia was not
involved, and the necessity for a division that would give a juster representation than tbat uow enjoyed was
not under discussion.
It would be a mistake to suppose,
however, that tbe speech wbb waEted.
The Redistribution Hill was not to re
distribute. It was intended more as ��
��� challenge to the Senate, and was
thiokly coated with party politics from
the top to tbe bottom of it. It was
because of that The Miner deprecated
the aotiou of tn* Nelson Board of
Trade in proposing a resolution requesting the Government to embody in
the bill provision for the separate representation of the Kootenays. It was
not legislation that was proposed, so
much as a rnanoeuvro for party advantage, aud The Miner was convinced
that tbs Board's resolution wonld fail
to receive the least attention. But
like Mr. Bostock's speech, it may live
to make its influence felt some other
day. If redistribution was not intended this session, it will havo to be
considered two yearB honoe. It will
then beoome a constitutional necessity, and although it may be plentifully bedewed with party politics the
House will be obliged to deal with it
in a practical,  business fashion.   Mr.

C 0 troubles which affect the

?, ��e Behave that, by a denial ��.print
may not oame annua to conclude with
a short summary of the constitution
and objeots of Trade Unions in England at the present day, for they form
the basis.of Trade Unions in this conn-1
try.
The organization of oanh union is'
much the same. It is governed by a
general committee or executive council established in some targe town
which is the centre ot its parti-julnr
industry. Each branch bus a sepaiate
Government for special purposes, but
for general purposes all branches nre
under the oomniaiid of the general committee or executive council. The rev
enne for general purposes is deiived
from admission fees, subscriptions and
flues for neglect of dnty or brenohes
of regulations and rules Eor extraordinary purposes, sneli as strikes, !
furds are obtained by levies.
Terms of admission vary consider-1
ably iu the different Unions, a speoi-1
fled ago and period of service some-1
times being required
The objoots of a Uniun tre  twofold.
In   the   first plaoe it   is a friendly   or
benefit   sooiety, giving relief to members who, owing to   sickness, or   acoi-
dent, are  unable to work.    Bometimes
superanuatiou allowances are given and
invaiiably provision   is  made for funeral expenses.    In tbe seoond  place   a
Union is a trade sooiety or guild.     In
this    capacity   its    objects    are    to
place  the   workman   on   un   equality
with his employers in the disposition of Ju'r W Wod'day
labor,   to   inorease wages, to diminish ; Jaly 20 Thursday
the   hours of labor and to bring  about I Julr M Friday
an equal distribution of work.
Tbe methods by wbioh tbese objects
are attained are "direct and indirect.
The direct method is by strikes, the
indirect by limiting tbe number of
workmen in any particular trade and
disoountenauoing or repressing competition. A union as a rule resents the
common employment of union and
non-union men but tbis has invariably
caused friction with employers.
What I have written concerning
trade unions has been gathered from
personal experience of the Engineers'
and Miners' (coal) Unions in England.
I have endeavored to give the bare facts
leaving comment to those wbo may
oare to read these lines.       W. F. B.
a nound in weight. Por reasons which
are known only to The Miner's staff,
there is no one in this office who
would like to contradict bim.

The Rossland cricket team is not
content with its recent victory over
the Nelson aggregation and wants another go at them, so it is'on thi cards
tbat a second game will be played
here some time in August. Rossland
has no ground so the Nelson team oan-
uot return the first visit.
I I The report in yesterday's Miner of
the political meeting at tho Tribune
office is undoubtedly correct. And
moreover John Houtson is preparing
already for the fray. There aro many
in Nelson wbo hope he will follow
Joseph Martin's example and letire

of existing facts, wo may, 011 tho prin
ciplf   that   the    "end    jnHtifles    the
menus,"   dispel   the  uneasiness  of  a
few non-resident investors.
With the very liest intentions it is
rtillioclt to escape a suspicion of partiality In writing on such a matter as
this. But it hi.s occurred to tlio writor
that while there nre many opponents
ai we,I as champions of the Miuers'
Union in Nelson, there may he a few
here who have not any knowledge at
all ot the history of the growth of
Trade Unions in England during the
Nineteenth century. And it is just
possible that a short sketch of the rise
of tin ss great organisations may enable lioth partisans and foes to
take a broader "view of Trade Unionh
in general.
By the common law of   England   all
com hi nations for regulating   'he   relations between ninstors nnd   nieu or for
imposing restrictive  conditions on the
roiiduct of   any   industry   or   business
were, with viry  few aud n 11 import ant
exceptions,   illegal.    Mark   the  word,
combination.    It   was  the  combining
that constituted tho   unlawful act, and
those  who were  found   guilty   of   so
combining were snhjected to fines   und
Imprisonment,      It      mattered     not
whethtr employers or  employees were
the guilty   parties,   the   law   was,   in
that icspeot, 110 rospecter of   persons.
It was immaterial   if the end the men
had in view was to determine the rate
of wages or to  limit   the   amouut   of
work; whether the means was the Bim;
iillaneous   withdrawal   from   employ- I
meat,   the  endeavoring    to    prevent'
others resuming or taking employment
or the attempting to control  masters
in the management of trade   and commerce;    a   combination   formed    to
8*feot these   ends was a criminal   conspiracy.
From the   reign   of   Edward   I,   to
Oeorge IV, the   common   law was enforced and enlarged  hy as   many as lifi
(lifTcient statutes all designed, more or
less, to prevent the organisation of   labor.   Towards the end of the last century the rise of manufacturing systems
and the consequent revolution   in   industrial arrangements caused n vast extension   in   tho   number   of  laborers.
Secret societies among   workmen were
numerous and active,   so muoh so that
in the -Klli vein of the reigu  of George
HI,   a   stringent   statute   was  passed
which subjected   all persons oonvioted
of combining to advance wages, or decrease the   quantity   of  work,   or   to
effect  anil   control   manufacturers  or
traders, to three weeks' imprisonment.
In 1H24, owing to tbe discontent and
disorder which followed the invention
of steam   and   improved    mechanical
appliances, a sclent   committee of  the
House ot Commons was   appointed   to
enquire into the  origin   of   the   trouble.   This committee   found   that  the
Editor of The Miner:
Sir���I observe in yonr issue of today
that a oorrespondent again brings   forward the East Baker   street  question.
Might I suggest that, when tbe matter
comes     before    the     Oity    Council,
they should deal with it in a hnsinoss-
like manner.   For a still  longer   time
than this removal   has been under discussion an agitation has   been   unsuccessfully going ou  with  regard to the
powder    magazine,   which   has   also
been looked ou as a danger to the Oity.
The owners of the magazine now seem
to be prepared  to  vacate on receiving
certain  compensation and if a similar
proposition were made  in this  matter
it   might,   be  the means-of  bringing
atmnt n   settlement satisfactory to   all
concerned.   I wonld therefore  propose
that if the   Council   were   to  appoint
two   arbitrators   of     experience    and |
knowledge of local property   we might
expect in a short time that tbis   business would be settled quietly and without inconvenience.    With regard to securing a new tract of land, a difficulty
arises, owing to tbe natural conformation of the town and   to tie fact   tbat
when  the  townsite   was   selected  by
Mr. G. M. Sproat   he   could not  have
forseen the possibility   of such a  contingency    arising.   However,   having
pointed out the first stage to a   practi
cal solution of a question, I am   satisfied to leave the further detail  for   future discussion.

lireswit laws, prohibiting combina
tiuiin among tlio workmen,had not only
linoii inefficient but tended to produce
mutual irritntion and distrust. The
following extniot from the committee's report would, to some, seem sin
galnrly mlaptotl to the present state of
alTmrs in this Province.
"Masters and workmen should be
treed from Biioh restrictions as regards
the rate of wages and hours of work-
inn, and lie left at perfeot liberty to
make such agreements as they mutually think proper."
Tlie offending statutes were accord-1
iniily reiienhd by an amending statuto
which was viewed with disfavor by
the Tory party and described by one of
tlieir leaders (I think it was the Duke
of Wellington) as "unconvenient, for
unliable and alarming. "
Another committee was then formed
and the old statutes were re-enacted
with certain modifications,
This state of affairs continued up to
IHiill when tho Manchester and Sheffield
outrages called for a Boyal Commission which finallv ended in the Trade
Union Acts of 1871 and 187(1. The gist of
these statutes is that people oan lawfully combine to do what, as private
individuals, it would not 1 e unlawful
for them to do. In certain respects
the mnv nets placed Trade Unions un |
the Bams footing as friendlv scoieties,
permitting them to enjoy all the privileges, advantages and facilities whioh
those associations possesB but at the

Ymir. July 27.���(Special)���I have
just received a copy of the prospectus
of the Bossland-Ymir Gold Mining
and Milling Company, Limited. This
company has been incorporated at
|600,000 iu 2,00(1,000 shares of 35 cents
each of which 1,000,000 shares aro set
aside to bo sold to dovelop the Company's property. The officers are as
below : VV. G. White, London, Eng.,
chairman; J. K. Saucier, Rossland,
vice-chairman ; J. A. Turner, Nelson,
Hnss Thompson, Rossland, and E. N
Uuimette, Rossland. The consulting
engineer is A. M. Bouillon, M. E.,
with Eugene Croteuu, of Ymir, superintendent. The head office of the company is at Rossland.
The property consists of five claims
and are located oue and one-half miles
Bouth east of the town of Ymir, on
Jubilee Mountain. The property has
been surveyed aud application made
for a Crown Grart. Hrofessor J. G.
Garvin, M, B., who reported ou the
property, speaks as follows: The
country rock consists of slate, schists
and thorite. Most of the development
work has been done on the 13ruce vein,
which is large and well defined. There
are two open cuts and oue shaft. The
first cut is five feet deep, exposing a
very promising ledge of quartz, iron
pyrites aud galena, seven and a half
feet between wallB. The vein is not
frozen but there is a parting ot oxides
between the walls and vein. The two
opeu cuts aro about 78 feet apart from
each other, and 150 feet north east
thare is a shaft 10 feet deep sunk ou
the vein. This shaft is sunk on mineral. The vein runs N. E, and S. W.
and has a vertical dip. Assays range
from $14.85, $2.0, $18.80 up to $18.14.
The property is well thought of hero in
Ymir and as work is to be commenced
immediately there is no doubt, with
the present showing which they have,
chat good and paying mineral will
soon be enconntererl.
It is understood that the Socond Relief mine has been sold to Gooderham-
Blackstock of Toronto. This property
has been developed by Messrs. Finob
& Campbell of Spokane, and is now in
a position to ship regularly. During
the past winter considerable ore was
shipped which averageo $770, the principal values running in gold. Tbe
property has been shut down for the
past two months, pending negotiations for the purohase. i ho consideration is withheld. It is tho intention
of the new owners to work thiB property ou an extensive scale.
Messrs. Eoote & Strong located on
the 1st of July the Belvidere & Rock-
foid mineral cltii.n situated at tbe
head of the third Bouth fork of Porcupine oreek. This property is about
one mile south of the Big Path mineral claim. Already the owners have
made an open cut on the ledge 12x14x8
feet. The ledge is 10 feet in width
and the quartz carries galeua, oopper
and iron. They are taking out two
pack horBes with supplies and intend
to do considerable work on the property
as the showing ia au exceedingly rich
one.
* ���   *
A correspondent writes the Miner:
"I venture to give you an interesting
fact which should give a very fair idea
of tho working capabilities of the
smelter men aud prove of interest to
many. Something like 10 months ago
four men, ono a Swede, one a Welshmen, oue a Canadian and one an
Englishman, invested in four claims
and after hard work rapidly doveloped
them : until now each has taken out a
lump of maiden ore showing a weight
of close on seven pounds, with a fervent hopo of further profit from the
same claim. This speakB for itself aud
I oan verity tho staterueut at any time
so required."

3 Mr. Cirkel, a German mining  engineer, who represents Mr. J. B.   McLar--
] (the owner  ot   the  "only   cheese
, eto") arrived in   Nelson   yesterday en route  to the  Simalkameeu distriot.    Mr. Cirkel has been visitiug the
Humboldt claims near Crawford creek
He  expressed himself as very   pleased
with the property but had no   particulars for publication except that  development work whb being pushed rapidly
ahead theri.    He  considers    that  the
Silver Hill is a very   promising   prop
erty and will probably exceed  the   expectations of its owners.

The   Miner's   Special  Correspondence
From the World's Money Oentr3.
(Special Correspondence.)
London, July 15.���Since my last
letter very little change can be announced. The Bank of England have
thought fit to put up the bank rate to
'A% Per cent, and the tone of the market is weak with the further expectation of going to 4 per cent, next week.
Home railways have mover] but little
and foreign stock is almost lifeless.
American rails bave been very irregular with very little buying ou this
side. The only feature is the amalgamation of the New York Central with
the Pennsylvania railway. Canadian
Pacific and Trunks are also very dull.
In the mining market iu West Australians considerable amount of business has been done especially in the
low priced shares. Iu the African
market everyone seems to look or are
rather waiting for the next move by
the Imperial Government. In the B.
O. mining market although they have
not been given to any active deulngs
the tone for these has been pretty firm.
Le Roi, however, have reacted, although the latest news from the
mine cannot bo considered as otherwise than satisfactory. B. A. C. are
hardening. Fair busiupesa has been
passing in Ymir. but Athabasca are
comparatively dull. Fractional ira-
provanibts are marked in Hull Mines
Klondike Bonanza, and Alaska
Goldfields. All the other B. C. shares
are about the same figure.
Copper is marked higher but from
the reception of some of the new copper companios issues tbey have not been
caught on by the investing public as in
the majority of issues tho underwriters
bave been let in.
Thorn have been several new companies issued this w'eck, viz: British
Oil and Coke Mills, Ltd, sh ire capital ��2,350,000, which is an amalgams
tion of some very old firms in tin
trade some dating from 1780.
