Soon these men found that they had
genuine mine in the Providence, and a
shipment of some 15 tons to the Green
wood smelter a short time ago, but verified their belief. In one place there are
thirty inches of solid galena, freely
sprinkled with silver glance, while several ounces of gold per ton were also found.
It is understood that a transfer is about
to take place on a basis of $50,000. Mr.
Fowler thinks he has enough ore in sight
to more than pay for the property, and
so is probably not particularly anxious to
sell.
And so it appears as though the first

A LOW GRADE PROPOSITION
It is a curious spectacle to see a
discredited and impotent government such as we have in this province today, hanging on to power by
the grace of an erstwhile opponent.
After the disclosures made at the
Royal Commission, it is difficult to
see what further reason can possibly exist to justify the Martin par-
tv in continuing its support. Martin is responsible for every day of
life tbe government now enjoys
and many of his supporters through
out the country are grumbling at
the continued alliance. Does he
intend to  shoulder the   blunder of
__^^__ l art
or cribbage. The other day there
were only 33 members in tbe house
when a* vote to adjourn was taken.
Seventeen voted against the government's motion and 16 for it.
Mr. Speaker's keen eye at once
saw 17 on both sides, and gave his
own casting vote to sustain the government. Great head.—Vancouver
Independent.
The daily papers have been
strangely silent on the evidence
produced before the Royal Commission appointed to investigate the
charges preferred by Smith Curtis,
M. L. A., against the Dunsmuir
government and its scandalous railway deal. Enough evidence was
produced there to show that they
should be hounded from power, and
how any honest man can give them
a vote to retain them in their seats
passeth understanding. But, then,
political morality in this province is
at a low ebb.—Vancouver Independent.

Chinese   Innocence.
"There are some things about
that second count that remind me
of Bill McGuffin's claim on the
Yuba," remarked the old prospector the other day. " Bill had sunk
, considerable money in a prospect
and got hardly a color in return,
and, desirous of quitting even on
the deal, he brought in sone dust
from Yuba, and ' salted * it quite
liberally. The big pans that he
washed out in the day time and put
back at night excited a band of
Chinese, who were panning out a-
scant living on an adjoining cla-fm.
They offered Bill a good p/fce for
the claim, and after ' stringing'
them for a day or two he let them
have it. Most anything short of
murder was considered justifiable
when a Chinaman was the victim
so, after explaining the trick to his
friends, Bill laid around to see the
fun when the ' salting ' disappeared.
' "After working a day or two,
and taking out a fair amount which
Bill had placed there, the Chinamen drifted into some new ground,
and in short order commenced panning out more gold than Bill could
show in the best of his salting. In
a week they had taken/ out five
times as much gold as Bill had used
in salting it, and i/vvas getting
richer. "v
" Bill and his friends then made
overtures to the Mongolians with a
view to repurchasing the rich mine.
They offered them double the price
they had paid for it. But the
Chinks ' no sabeed,' nor did they
' sabee' until Bill and his friends
planked down four times the
amount he had received for it a few
jdays before. Bill ran out of the
paystreak the next day ; but as the
Chinamen ran out of the town' the
night before, they were never punished for the heinous crime of salting the same mine twice."

shut off the land-grabbing, monopoly-giving, law-breaking aggrega
tion of grafters which now masquer
ade as a government in British Col
umbia, and substitute instead a leg
islature of level-headed public
spirited men who will conduct pub
lie business for the benefit of th*
public. Then we will have stable
progressive government.—Sandon
Paystreak. .
The programme of the- Labor
party drawn up at the Kamloops
convention last week is one which
is bound to attract considerable attention. This is the first time that
an attempt has been made to organize a labor party for the province.
Labor candidates have run in isolated constituencies on platforms
which carried little weight as being
merely the expression of opinion of
the labor party of single ridings
here and there. Now we have a
clear cut manifesto representing the
demands of the party throughout
the province. If in power t
are the measures which they will
carry. If in opposition still these
are their aims. The platform is
radical one. Other platforms have
also contained radical planks. The
difference in this case is that the
radicalism is sincere. At the same
time the platform is a sober and reasonable one. And it is open to
question whether an administration which coupled some such programme as this with a hearty effort
'to develop the resources of the
'province, would not fill the bill at
least as well as the " business'
governments which have been fall
ing down all over the place in the
effort to run our affairs for the past
few years.—Revelstoke Herald.
Press Opinions of the New Party.
The name adopted for the new
movement is the Provincial Progressive Party. The name is good.
'■The party henceforth will not be
''restricted to trades unions and socialist   bodies   for its support, but
Workingmen have the right to
organize for the purpose of securing higher wages or shorter hours
of labor, or otherwise improving
their relations with their employers, and have the right to strike
where their object is not to gratify
malice or inflict injury upon others,
but to secure better terms of employment for themselves. This is
the ruling of the New York Court
of Appeals in a case decided lately.
