DUNSMUIR RESIGNS.
Colonel Prior Called Upon to
Form a Government.
Late news received from Nicola -Lake
is io the effect that Premier Dunsmuir
has resigned and that CoLPrjst.haE
formed a government from the members
of the legislature, composed as follows :
Prior, Minister of Mines and Premier ;
Eberts, Attorney-General; Mclnnes,
I*resi3ent of Council ; Prentice, Minister
of Finance; Wells, Commissioner oi
Lands and WorksTand Murphy, Provincial Secretary and Minister of Education,
Prior claims to be able to command i
majority in the legislature.
Only two members of the new govern
ment, Denis   Murphy of West Yale, and
-    W. W. I^McInnes,   representing   North
Nanaimo. will   be   compelled   tc
r endorsation.
v premier is evidently n
he possibly can avoid, hence the retention of tha old cabinet so far as possible.
- The opinion is expressed by coast papers that the government is but a makeshift and cannot last out the balance of
the term, and it is generally felt that the
preparing of new lists and an appeal to
the electors as divided by the re-distribution measure of last session is the only
satisfactory way in which a stable government can be secured.
The Star has no information yet- as to
who will opposgJVUirphy inthis riding,
but no doubt a candidate will Eeforth-
COming. Hislop from the opposition to
the government side of" the housfffiTr no
omer apparent reason than the joy'of
having "Honorable " written before his
name, is not a trick that particularly
commends itself to B. C. voters, as the
. experience of J. C. Brown in New Westminster clearly indicates.
considered any betti
s it is of practjgajly.Uie san
people are heartily sick'of tl
. mejnr   The people
' "whole incompetent gang, and Murphy
has made a serious mistake in -Casting
his rot witn them. Even should he win
in the coming bye election, he has foolishly jeopardized his future by accepting
a portfolio at hands of Prior and his colleagues.

HILL IS PLEASED
At Being   Permitted to Build
Coast-Kootenay.
■
An arrangement has been reached
whereby the Great Northern can now enter Grand Forks without hindrance frorrff
the Kettle Valley Lines or the C. P. R.
The Great Northern has had a construction gang laying track this week »n the
spur to the depot site in Columbia.
Neil McCallum, mayor of Colu
bTCT, and t_naries Cummings of Grand
Forks, B. C, delegates to Ottawa in connection with the settlement of the dispute between the V., V. & E. and Kettle
Valley Lines, arrived Sunday from St.
Paul, says a Grand Forks press report,
Mr. Cummings said :
" The dispute between the two companies was settled at Ottawa immediately after the granting of the franchise to
the V., V. & E., by the railway committee of the Dominion government.
" In consideration of being allowed to
maintain the crossing at grade over the
Washington & Great Northern tracks at
Pelham Flats, four miles south of Cnr-
lew^the_2ettle"~Valley Lines officials
agreed to withdraw all injunctions suits
against the V., V. E. This order was
telegraphed to the court at Vancouver,
B. C, and it is evident that delay in the
transmission of the news of the agree
ment to the officials at Grand Forks has
caused the trouble between t
lines.
" There will be no further trc
the building of the V., V. Si-
Grand Forks and north to the Granby
smelter, as permission was also obtained
at Ottawa from the C. P. R. officials for
the V, V. & E. to cross the C. P. R.
track north of Grand Forks. We had
the assurance from President James J,
Hill of the Great Northern that the V.,
V. & E. would be built through to the
coast without subsidy from the government. This assurance did much toward
simplifying matters before the railway
committee at Ottawa.
" We called on President Hill at
Paul on our return from Ottawa and
were again given the assurance that the
V., fe & B. would be built through to
the coast,"ERe work fo~6e starte3"3s
as'the preliminary surveys can be
pieced. There is now absolutely nothing
in the way of the construction of the V.,
V. & E. to the coast. TJm^P. R. will
not oppose the building of th^road. Mr.
ftill expressed himself as highly pleased
with the results of the negotiations at
Ottawa."'
Luke Gibson spent a few days hunting
deer up the Similkameen this week. He
reports having killed seven.
MAY AMALGAMATE
The Ashnola and Similkameen
. Valley Coal OS's.
W. Blakemore, M. E., who drove in
last SUnday from Penticton with a couple of eastern friends who are interested
in the coal of this section, stated to a representative of the Star that a plan was
on foot for the amalgamation of two coal
companies operating in this district, for
which Mr. Blakmore has been acting
some time in the capacity of consulting
engineer, namely, the Similkameen Valley and Ashnola Coal companies.
A meeting will be held at Nelson on
the 12th of Dec. next, to consider the
proiect, and until this matter is settled,
no further work will be done here with
the diamond drill owned by the two companies.
Mr. Blakemore says the proposed
change will be of great benefit to this
district, as the new company will be
placed in a position to command ampli
capital for the thorough^exploitation o
its holdings.
An analysis of the 10 foot seam of coal
cut by the diamond drill on the Ashnola
Coal Co's ground, as reported in
Star of Oct. 4th, was made by the Trail
Smelter, and gave the following very
isfactory returns:
Moisture	
Fixed Carbon	
Volatile combustible matter       32.9
Ash	
Mr. Blakemore believes this to be the
lowest ash yet obtained in any analysis
made of Similkameen coal.
When here last Mr. Blakemore visited
the Copper Bluff and Cliff on Copper
Mountain, belonging .to the Ashnola
Smelter Co., and sampled the Copper
Bluff. The sample was tested by the
Trail Smelter with the following results :
Gold 08
Silver 29.6
Copper 40 percent.
Mr. Blakemore left Wednesday morning to return to Benticton, while his two
companions went to visit the Nicola coal
fields.  '
The Star is indebted to the Department of the Interior for an excellent map
of the Dominion of Canada.
T. C. Revely and C. Summers report
having exposed coal croppings on their
One Mile claims in doing some work re-
Lost—Between Princeton and Roche
River about the 20th of Oct., two pointers, a dog and a bitch. The dog is white
and black, and the bitch white and liver-
colored. $ 10 reward will be paid for
their recovery.    Address this office.
LOST IN THE HILLS.
Provisions Exhausted and Horses ^roandoned.
Mr. H. L. Rogers of  Seattle, who left
;re about the 20th of Oct. last, to cross
to Slate Creek on theofrler  side of the
boundary line, writes   from   Seattle that
short of provisions, and was compelled -
to abandon his horses on Lost River and
make his wjiy on foot, wading for several
days down the bed of the_stream. After"
getting~out to WinthrorTon the Methow
River, Mr. Rogers sent Messrs. Dodd and
Smith from that place to get the horses
out. This they succeeded in doing after
spending^eleven^days on the trail, the
slow progress made being due to the
weak condition in which they found the
horses and the depth of snow, which-was
over^tenjeet in places, and compelled
the use of snow shoes. They reached
here on the 22nd of Nov. and proceeded
down the Similkameen to the Okanagan.
Mr. Rogers lost two valuable dogs_short-
ly after leaving here, an~advertisement
for the recovery of which appears in another column.

The following telegram has been received from Smith Curtis, the popular
member for Rossland, who is well known
in this district:

I hope Princeton and the Similkameen generally will emphatically
condemn Murphy's traitorous conduct.

down the Similkameen is in very bad

A GOOD CORK EXTRACTOR
I The Phoeuix Pioneer comment
ing on the Rossland Miner's opin
ion that the Similkameen was bottled up, and would continue so until the C. P. R. uncorked the bot
tie, says : " From the action of Mr
Hill's trusted assistants at Grand
Forks and Columbia in the past
week, it would seem as though Mr.
Hill was getting into the Boundary
and on into the Similkameen as fast
as he can, that finally he is begin-
ing to extract the cork from the
bottle. The first move is to reach
the Granby Smelter, the next to
build to Phoenix, and then on
west. Mr. Hill is one of the best
cork extracters in the railway
building world."
Editor'SrMii,XAMEEN Star.
Sir—Some time since I was shown a
copy of the Fernie Free Press which con
tained the following- astounding statement, made by Mr. W. E. Blakemore, M.
E., of Montreal. Speaking of the property of the Anglo-American Co., upon
which Captain Scott " spent f 180,
their money in equippiug the property
with planT7' ($86,0oo was,"TTf>eTieve, the
correct amount), he goes on to say:
" This valuable plant, with the buildings, etc., has fallen into the hands of
the Similkameen Valley Coal Company
for a triflini
I took the first opportunity of calling
the attention of Mr. Blakemore
matter, and told him that if he did not
contradict the statement I should be
pelled to do so, as there was not a word
of truth in" it. The Anglo-American
plant, etc., is owned by the Verrnilioji
Forks Mining & Development Co„ and
although we had been askfed-oncgjo sell
deal of any description had taken
place.
He replied that he regretted that he
had been misled, that it was only anoth-
of the many misstatements that had
been made to him, that he would at once"
make the contradiction in his own paper
and send me a copy.
Nearly two months having passed, and
) paper having reached me, I feel called upon not only in the interest of my
company, but of otheri, to ask you
ve publication to this letter before I
leave for England. e~~~
Yours faithfully,
ARTHUR HICKLING,
Director of the Vermilion  Forks Mining
& Development Company.
DECLINE   OF PROVINCIAL
CREDIT.
- Speaking of the B. C. loan recently floated on the London market, the Vancouver World says :—
" The Dunsmuir Government has
added to its other glories the dis-
tinction of increasing at one attempt the debt-o£—the province by
fifty per cent.. The amount was
$3,500,000. and the price but 92.
The net sum that the province will
receive will be about $3,165,000.
" The government organs are
claiming that this rate of 92 is phenomenal. It is—but not in the way
.^heylc'iilean.- Dunsmuirism seems
to have-bad its effect on the credit
of the province to such an alarming
extent that a loan at a reasonable
rate cannot be got in London. The
Semlin government—which is now
scattered to the four winds because
of its sins—was able to get 96 for
its.loan in 1889, but -the ' Business
Government' could only reach 92
The taxpayers will shave1 the pleasure of paying   $f4<>,.oix>   yearly to
Note—Mr. Blakemore, when here this
week,   was   interviewed   regarding   the
plaint made in this letter, and stated
that he fully intended making   the   cor-
on when he found   he was in   error,
it   had escaped   his   memory.    He
wished   to tender his   apologies   to  Mr.
Hickling for having overlooked the matter.
The misstatement   complained of was
ade to Mr. Blakemore by thejrtyiaging
director of the Similkameen Valley Coal
Co.—Ed.

GRANBY FUTURE  IS  FLA'TTEE
ING.
Interview   With   General   Manager
Graves in Spokane.
. General Manager Jay P. Graves,
of the Granby Company, in an interview in Spokane, states that the
Granby smelter is prepared to treat
all the custom ore that may be offered it, at a fair margin of profit.
" We can easily handle 200 tons
of Republic ore a ' day," he said,
I and We are preparing to fill the
demand for treating more. -. At
present the Republic ore treated at
the Granby plant is being treated
through the converters. This is
handled, of course, at less cost than
if handled through the blasts, but
it costs us money to treat it, just
the same. The Granby mines are
developed and will be equipped by
February ist to a point where they
can produce 5000 tons of ore a d&y
for a period of years. The outlook
for the Granby was never so promising as-it is now. The future is
very flattering."
Greater Than Eoyalty.
When Robert T. Stewart was
governor of Missouri it was in the
days when everybody drank whiskey, and   the governor was no ex
ception to the rule. Years ago,
when the Prince of Wales was on a
visit to this country, they gave a
grand ball in his honor in St. Lou-
is. Governor Stewart came down
from Jefferson City to honor the
event with his pre en e. In the
course of the evening the enthusiastic governor drank rather too
much. He became exceedingly
happy, as well as proud and enthusiastic. He and the prince were
seated on the platform, while the
beauty and aristocracy of St. Louis
swept past them in gorgeous review, Stewart's feelings and bosom
swelled. Eventually, in a mighty
impulse of glow and glory, he administered a tremendous slap upon
the prince's back, exclaiming with
intense animation :
" Say, prince, don't you wish
you were governor of   Missouri?"
England's heir took it all in good
part, and laughed, and paid no further attention to the governor's familiarity, otherwise his dignity
might' have sustained a severe
shock.—Harry Norman in the St.
Louis Republican.
What "Wife" Means.
Says Ruskin : " What do you
think the beautiful word ' wife'
comes fro-n ? It is the great word
in which   the   English and   Latin
languages conquered the French
and Greek. I hope the French
will some day get a word for it instead of that femme. But what do
you think it comes from ? The
great value of the Saxon words is
that they mean something. Wife
means ' weaver. You must be either housewives or housemoths—
remember that. In the deep sense,
you must either weave men's fortunes and embroider them or feed
upon and bring them to decay.
Wherever a true wife comes, home
is always around her. The stars
may be over her heed, the glow
worm in the night's cold grass may
be the fire at her feet, but home is
where she is ; and for a noble woman it stretches far around her,
better than house ceiled with cedar,
or   painted with vermillion—shed
ding its  quiet light   for those who
else are homeless.   This, I believe,
is the woman's true place awd pw-
What Noah Wa* Doing.
While teaching a class of girls in
our school recently, says a London
exchange, the master asked the
following question .
" What was Noah supposed to be
doing when the animals were going
into the ark ? "
He received several answers. At
last a little girl put her hand up.
" Well," he said, " what do you
say ? "

Not a Luxury.
The character and stability of a
town is reflected by its local newspaper, says the B. C. Times. That
newspaper is as good as the support
it receives. It is the medium
through which the outside world
is cold the progress and the development of the city and district in
which'it is published. The amount
expended on a newspaper is not £
charitable contribution but a necessary expenditure just as it is
necessary to pay taxes in order
that the town may have gooc
streets, good sidewalks and efficient
police and fire protection. In that
sense a newspaper is a public not a
private enterprise, that should be
maintained by the public and not
by a private individual. Neither
one man nor a set of men can be
expected to run a newspaper from
a purely patriotic spirit. All that
can be expected of him or them is
to puolish as good a paper as its
patronage warrants.
It is therefore the public duty o "
of all business men to advertise in
the local paper, if nothing more
than a card stating the business
they are in and where they may be
found.

"That," he said, angry "at her
implied suspicion, " is from the

asked, haughtily, "that I thought
it was anything else ? "
At which he shrunk back behind
his newspaper again, feeling as if
he had kicked hard at something
and missed it.

" Well," asked the anxious
young husband, " is it a boy ? "
