McBride withdrew  from the conference of provincial  ���premiers- recently, held: at Ottawa  because the claims of British Columbia were not accorded the consideration and award which they' deserved, the Vancouver Province  sums up-the situation .in the following appropriate maimer:  "British Columbia has-never been  able to get justice from Ottawa,, and  perhaps until the balance of political  ppwer swings westward it, never  vvill. Politicians come, lo, us.from  the East and speak in glowing-  phrases of our potential riches,, our  -marvelous scenery, .and our;wonderful climate. In the matter, of com-  pjLinietits they never tire. We are a  great people,, and our, country is  beautiful to behold. The coast is  as near Utopia as-it is- possible to  get in this work-a-day world.-,  "So they tell us year after- year.  But when it comes-to-financial mat:  ters British Columbia is still the  milch cow of- Confederation. We  are taxed to the limit' for federal  purposes, aud get practically nothing'in return���not even decent consideration of our honest grievances.  "Apart from the machine politicians there will be 110 difference-of.  opinion regarding Hen. Mr.- -Mc-  Bride's withdrawal from the conference of provincial. premiers - on  Saturday���a .conference that would  have been farcical were-it���not of  such import .to us all. Thequestion  of justice,- of. British..fair play, did  npt appear to enter into the calculation. We asked for. bread,, and  were offered, a.,stonc�� Under, the  circumstances. Mr.- McBride could  not in fairness to his country and  his people do other than he did, and  it should be a source, of satisfaction  and gratification lo. us all .that .lie  saw the, one.decent,, manly, honorable course"to. take.'and had. the  moral nerve to lake it.-        ,.  "Whether an appeal  Britain will 1 change- the  only time can tell What we know  now is that the widely heralded .conference has proved abortive and that  the Hon. Richard McBride stands  out as the one man at it,who did the  right thing at the right time -in the,  right way."'  lory" the report slates:., "In this  subject, iniprovemenbioii last year's  work is very, noticeable..

The Acquiring' ('ompfiny's Engineer  Speaks of the Magnitude of  Plans for New District.  If anything further was required  to demonstrate beyond rme<*lion that  operations of a' magnitude never before undertaken in llie north will  follow the recent sale of the Rainy  Hollow mining claims, it is furnished by the presence here of J. W.  Richmond Lee, one of the world's  most famous mining engineers and  thc chief-consulling engineer of the  most extensive mining interests in  '"London, and his assurance that  work will begin immediately. Mr.  Lee says 300 or 400 men will be  .employed as soon as he can reach  Ungland and have time to cable  back the necessary authorization.  He says, further,, that iu a very  short lime, just as soon as the developments will warrant it, 4,000  ' men will be employed in the various  ' undertakings of the company, which  he represents, iu the vicinity of  Rainy Hollow.  -   The company which has purchased  the   Rainy Hollow properties   and  .which   Mr. Lee   represents here, as.  v well: as in their various  enterprises  in other, portions of the   world,   is  composed  of a half-dozen men who  lank at the very top of English life,  .   socially as well as financially.    The  president  of  the company is a.well  ..-known member of  the "English nobility.    They own the famous- Corona mine as well as many other properties   in   Spain.    They  own   the  great copper producing properties of  Costa Rica, and are the leading producers   of copper and other ores in  Mexico.    In   addition to being the  largest copper producers of Europe  they own and   operate   iron,   coal,  ���molybdenum and other mines. ' The  .. company has subscribed and paid in  $5,000,000   capital   for  the   Rainy  ..   Hollow  deal.    It  is capitalized for  ��15,000,000, eveiy cent of which is  in sight when wanted.  In addition to working the mining  properties in the Rainy Hollow district and the railroad connecting  them with the coast, it is the purpose, says Mr. Lee, of his people to  opcrale smelters and refineries on  the ground. The discovery of an  excellent vein of coking coal of high  grade 15 miles north of the copper  properties, which has been secured  for their company, makes this  possible.  M. Thomson, who came here and  closed the bargain for the London  people which secured possession for  them ofthe Rainy Hollow district,  lias control of.the White river pros-  pects.and the continuation of the  railroad from Rainy'Hollow there,  and even,to the headquarters of the  Copper and Tan an a rivers is among  the possibilities of the future.  Speaking ��� of the Rainy Hollow  district, Mr. Lee says there is 110  question as to its great, richness.  There are 10,000 tons of bornite in  sight, and that is but a small side-  issue of the mines property, though  it is worth $1,000,000.  The Rainy Hollow ores consist of  bornite, sulphides and chalporyte,  in the main. Some promising discoveries of molybdenum have also  been made.:���Skagway Alaskan.

As a result of the accident which  befell Chas. Gairns on the 6lh hist.,  ���when, through a premature explosion, he sustained severe injuries to  his left arm and side and a compound fracture of the left leg involving the knee cap, it has finally been  found necessary to amputate the latter limb above the knee. The oper-  tiou, which took place this week,  was only resorted to after every  effort possible had been made lo save  the limb, and the patient is now  making fair progress.  Mr. Jas. T. Stables, a. member of  the   firm   of , Stables & Lumsdeu  which recently retired from business  after an] active career for some years  past,   left   on   Tuesday to join his  wife and daughter at Victoria.

The}' expect to resume  operations next spring.  Patrick Foley, who has had three  men at work on his Spruce creek  ground all season, made his final  clean-up for the year's operations  lately and reports having obtained  very satisfactory returns.
