Unsavory Developments   in C.  and  W., Railway   Investigation  Causes  Dissolution  of   Prior - Government.  Chief Commissioner of Lands and  Works  and the Attorney General  Asked by the Premier to Resign���Ministers Mclnnes and Prentiss Resign Their Portfolios���Premier Prior Dissolves the 4th  '    Session of the Ninth Legislature.  Blizzards in Alberta  have killed  thousands of cattLe.  Political rumours of all kinds  liave been afloat ' for"ihe last few  days, concerning affairs iii Vicloria,  and as the Management of Thk  Claim deeme*d it .in the interest of  its subset ibers a special despatch  was asked for from the Provincial  Capital, and its receipt shows a  truly interesting state of things :  [Special dispatch.]  Victoria, B. C, May 28th.���  As a result of developments of the  investigation into the circumstances  governing the land grant to the  Columbia & Western Railway Co.,  Premier Prior ou Tuesday last  asked D. M. EbertP, Attorney Gen-  - eral-j and W. O Wells, Chief, Jipra-  missionrr of Lands and Works, to  hand intlieir resignation to the Government, i  Col. Prior, in addressing the  House, said it was impossible for  the members of the Government to  sit together after the results of the  C. & W. investigation were made  known  Came to a Settlement,  The big strike at Montreal was  m( tiled Wednesclaj night. Basis of  .settlement not fuLly reporled yet.  Later.���By a vote of 19 to 16  this .afternoon, a motion by the  Premier " that the House go into  Committee on Supply ' was carried.  < Mr. Oliver suggested that the  Leader of the Government follow  the example of his colleagues and  hand in his resignation.  The Oppooition considers Prior's  dissolution proposition a bluff ancl  that the Lieutenant-Governor will  not (jrant a dissolution until the  Estimates are passed. At all events,  up to a late hour tonight there has  has been no announcement of dissolution or that the Lieut.-Governor has called upon some one "else  to form a Cabinet.  The EartEi Opened.  ' Two thousard persons have been  killed by an earthquake in the  town of Melazhberd, Tuikey. The  entire town was destroyed iu - 30  seconds.  LABOR AFFAIRS.  The Strike Situation -in a Quies-  1 cent State.:  Mail Matters.  The-C. & W. Affair.  At acaucus of the Opposition  that evening it was decided to enter into no compromise with the  Government, so that an appeal to  the country would be the only  course left to the Premier.  To the discomfiture of the Government, the following day, Wednesday, W. W. B. Mclnnes, Provincial Secretary, resigned bis  Portfolio, and was followed by the  -Minister of Finance, J. D. Prentice.  The Premier said that he would  ask the Lieut.-Governor for dissolution, but wanted supplies and one  or two important bills passed.  Hon. Prentice, iu resigning, said  that Eberts should seek a hole and  hide himself. The two who were  carrying on the agitation for the  C. &- W. grants to the C. P. R.  were Eberts and his infamous partner, Taylor.  A motion for adjournment by'the  Premier was defeated by 15 to 17.  while a similar motion by the Leader of the Opposition was also defeated. Mr. Hawthornthwaite,  Socialist Leader, proposed adjournment, but the debate was interrupt-  by the Premier moving adjournment, which was carried by a vote  of 16 to 14."  The Premier promises to dissolve  the House tonight.  The cause of the split up in the  Government ranks is the outcome  oft'-e findings of a special investigating committee appointed to enquire into certain charges preferred  by Mr. Oliver, of Delta, against  the Government, in issuing Crown  grants for railway bonus to the C.  P. R. of valuable coal and oil lands  in south-east Kootenay. Iu brief,  the findings of this Committee are :  "That the Order-in-Council, conveying lauds to the Canadian Pacific Railway was not in public interests ; That the Government permitted answers to questions asked,  bearing on the subject, that were  not in accordance with the real  facts."  What, in all probability, will be  the last mail until navigation opens,  arrived in Atlin on Saturday morning last, via Caribou. "The outgoing mail, which ' left here ou the  20th, inst, was unable to get  through, and the carrier returned  with the niu-uiIi.Viig-'uiail -on Saturday last. ( ,*u  From tiie carriers we learn that  Taku Aim, from Taku to the  Toochi river was practically impassable lor either sled or canoe at the  time they passed over it, while ircm  Toochi nyj-he ice.i? as sojid^as jt_is_  on Atlin Lake'. It' is possibfe that  unless the weather becomes exceedingly warm wilbin the next few  days a mail may leave Atliu for the  outside.  The strike among the miners 011  Pine creek is viitually a thing of  the past. The majoiity of the men  are returning to woik wherever  they can find it. In order to facilitate the construction bffthe.Deeks'  ditch, the ruineis of Gold Run have  entered into a combination with  Mr. Dceks and between thirty and  forty men aie rushing through the  ditch to completion as far as their  line. The arrangements with property owners on Gold Run is said  to be perfectly satisfactory to all  concerned.  The stoppage of the construction  of this ditch was the only ill effect  of the strike, as _ it seriously interfered with the development operations of men who were- in no way  concerned with the labor troubles,  aud at the same time.tied up thousands of dollars iu th? dumps, to the  great   injury of Jthe.owrers  and  others interested witl.itheru.  .   An Eminenr 'ril'ist Dead.  *.Tt-  Speculation is rife as to when  the "first boat" will anive, and  sweepstakes have been opened and  freely patronized. The latest date  is given (at about the 15th prox.,  which is most likely to be the  time when through connections  will be made.  L Bound  for Atlin.  Vancouver, May 29.���Henry  Maluin ancl wife left by the City of  Seattle on Wednesday for Atlin.  A. C. Hirschfeld. O. T. Switzer  and several others leave on the 2nd  prox. by the Princess May.  Which is Your Favorite?  A-Tlie~"��fon. David zn&rtjj u^e*- </���������  the Supreme Court of Canada^ formerly Minister of Justice in'the  Laurier Cabinet, died suddenly at  his home in Ottawa on Friday, 8th  instant.  It is thought that the bursting of  a blood vessel was the cause of  death. Judge Mills was 71 years  of age, and was regarded as the  highest constitutional authority in  the Dominion.  At the Derby races, run ou Wednesday last, there were seven starters. Rocksand won by two lengths,  Vir.icius, a French entry, second  and Flotsam third.  Victoria Day.  Victoria Day in Atlin passed off  very quietly this year and was devoid of any special celebration,  other than an entertainment and  dance in the evening at the Grand  Hotel, given ty the A.O.U.W.,  which, we hea.r, was quite a success, financially.  Two or three picnic parties enjoyed the day revelling among the  charms of nature, in which the district abounds. A party of cyclists  spent the day at the Big Hill., and  from the hampers of provisions,  which Fraser & Co.'s team was  used to carry, 1hey must have had  a great old feed. On the creeks,  work went on as usual as no inducements were offered for the  miners to celebrate the day.  As in Mediaeval Days.  The Russian Government, inadequately coped with, it is said, has  tolerated an awful massacre of Jews  in her colony of Bessarabia.  On the retur/n of Mr. Maluin extensive develojments will likely be  commenced oti the Beavis group of  quartz claims, to the north of Atliu,  which he and associates have taken  on a bond.  J. H. Brooks informs us that he  will open a meat market in Atliii  as soon as navigation opens, and  that he will keep none but prime  stock. He will conduct a strictly  cash business, with prices accordingly; wholesale and retail. Joe  has had sixteen years' experience  in the business ancl should be well  qualified to merit a share ol public  patronage.  Delicacies that will- tickle the  palate : ��� Anchovies, Es. of Anchovies, Russian Caviare, Indian  Chutney, Mackerel���Cross & Co.  Kershaw and partners on Wright  creek, have laid some 600 feet of  pipe ou their property, and with  excellent prospects in sight from  last season's prospecting, the boys  ought to do well this year.
