The case ;was  tried at Nelson, and concerns the  Seattle mine, in the Boundary district.  The plaintiffs allege that Clark; the  owner of the mine, entered into an  agreement to.; sell, the mine and  organize a company with a capital of  $6,000,000, and they, ask for specific  performance. The. defendants contend that there-was a first contract  about which the plaintiffs: made fraudulent statements at the time the second  contract was entered into. E. V. Bod-  well, Q. C, for plaintiff, and F. Peters,  Q. C, for Clark.  Professor Montgomery of Trinity  University, president of the Minnehaha  Gold Mining and Milling company of  Camp McKinney, makes the official  announcement that the company has  just added to its list of properl'es three  additional. Camp   McKinney   ehiinis.  This gives the' Minnehaha 7 claims,  the same number as is possessed by  the Cariboo company. The new properties just secured are the-Iron Duke,-;  Sylvan, and Brushwood Boy. The  locations formerly held by the company included only the Minnehaha,  the Cariboo fractional, the Geld Crown  fractional, and the Sinbad fractional.  The recently acquired property is valuable, bbthifbr.the timber which' it car-j  ries and for the promising veins which  have been discovered upon some parts  of it. 'All.three of the new claims are  full-sized locations. Development work  continues on the Minnehaha.

Mr.   Patterson   was much impressed   with  tlie   mining   outlook   iii [���  this section, and,believes that; "Boundary Creek will shortly develop into trie,  largest and richest mining district   in  the West.'

McKelvie, editor of. the Vernon News,'  reached Greenwood on Monday last,  after having visited Fairview, Camp  McKinney, and other points in the  southern portion of Mr. Ellison's constituency. They visited Greenwood  for the first time, and: were considerably surprised at the size and business  activity of:- the city. They were kept  busy for some time shaking hands with  old Verrionit'es, whojare now presidents  of the cityl Mr; Ellison does not enjoy  the confidence of the present provincial  government, but he does not seem to  get thin over the fact. He is strongly  of the opinion that the Semlin govern-  nien t is there for a short time only.  Mr. Ellison Is anxious that a greater  effort shou'il be made towards getting  the roads in good repair. He was particularly disappointed because the government did not build the West' Fork  bridge before high water. He strongly  recommended last spring that the  bridge1 should^ be constructed, but a  ferry was built instead.' Messrs. Ellison and McKelvie left on Tuesday for  Rossland.

Mr. Lucas is making a tour of the province, .organizing  Conservative Associations wherever  sufficient Conservatives are found. No  association was organized in Boundary  Creek district. The Conservatives are  very active throughout the province at  present. Sir Charles Hibbert Tupper  is'anxious to become premier of British  Columbia, and is therefor endeavoring  to organize the Conservative forces, so  that -the next provincial election may  be run on party lines. It is rumoured  that negotiations have been opened for  the purchase of two or three provincial  papers, that will be used to boom Sir  Hibbert for the leadership of the Conservative party in this province.

A New Restaurant in the Flood-Naden  Block, Run on the  LIVE AND LET LIVE PLAN  Our Tea, Coffee or Cocoa is  Always Fresh and Well Made  The mineowners of the Slocan are  determined that the men shall accept a  reduced rate of wage, the consequence  of the early enforcement of the eight-  hour law, and the men, who are well  organized, are equally determined to  hold out for the old rate of wage. All  the mines in the vicinity of New Denver  have been closed down, and the miners  are idle. The New Denver correspondent of the Nelson Tribune writes :���  "The cessation  of work applies  to  the underground work mainly, for several  properties are continuing surf ace  development.   Many  of the  riien   are  heading for the Lardo-Duncan conntry  where   they   will   spend   the summer  prospecting.    In the towns,  however,  one can notice a contraction in business  circles,   and  the  merchants  are complaining of deteriorating sales.    Some  of  the  hotelkeepers  in   the camp are  favoring   the5 closing  of  their  dining  rooms so as not to incur the expense of  holding up the men.   Luckily, however,  these   advocates  are  few  in  number,  and the men will  rind universal good  treatment,  as  in  days  of yore.    It is  reported   that   the   mineowners   have  given   warning  to  the  men . on  their  respective staffs refusing  to  sign   the  new  schedule  that  they  will  not get  another chance for employment when  the wage question is settled. No farmers  from   Ontario or  Manitoba have  yet  made   their   appearance   to   take   the  place of the men on strike."  A despatch from Ymir states :���  "At  midnight���June 2-3���a  special  train   arrived   with   six   men   for   the  London & British Columbia Goldfields,  who had been sworn in at  Nelson   last  evening  as  special  constables for the  defence of the property and employees  of the Ymir mine, owing to a telegram  having been sent down  by an official  of the company here to the effect that  their lives and property  were  in jeopardy,   which  is  a gross exaggeration  and entirely uncalledfor.    The posse of  special constables were  met by  Capt.  Forrester,  chief of police here, on arrival, and they (the specials) proceeded  up  to  the   mine  this   morning  in the  execution of their duties.    The leading  article in the Tribune of this  morning  has been read with extreme satisfaction  by all the residents in the town and by  the miners themselves.     In  conversation  with  a prominent member of the  Miners' Union he said the action of the  Ymir Gold Mines, Limited, in applying  for special police protection  was quite  uncalled for and entirely unwarranted,  that  no   threats   whatever   had   been  made, and that  the   men   simply  quit  work   because  they  had  been refused  ��3.50 for an eight-hour shift, and  were  now  quietly   awaiting for the government to step in and arbitrate,  and  his  idea was that pending such arbitration  the mineowners should shutdown.   As  far as your representative could discover, everything was going 011 smoothly ;   the Miners' Union have their  men  well in hand, and were quietly waiting  the issue of events by the  government  taking  measures for arbitration.    The  miners of this camp have always  been  peaceful  and lawabiding, and Captain  Forrester reported  this  morning  that  the  town   had   never   been   so. quiet.  Fifteen of the men   who  quitted   work  from  the  Ymir mine took the evening  train yesterday for Nelson.    The camp  is under the most excellent police control,   and there are four justices of the  peace  in   the  town,   and  there   is   no  question   whatever  that law and order  can and will be maintained.    J. Roderick Robertson, general manager of the  London & British Columbia Goldfields,  arrived here by the 11:17a.111. train and  proceeded up to  the   Ymir   mine.     He  returned    to   Nelson   on   the   evening  train."  Says a Kaslo correspondent:���  "On  today's���June  1st���train,  were 120 passengers, the  largest  tier  the   train  has brought in for  time.    They were mostly miners  Whitewater  and   Sandnn   who  are on  their way out of the country.     All   the  mines   in the district shut down today,  letting out their men :   the greater part  of them are going to the Cieur d'Alettes,  Montana,   and   Colorado,   while  some  will    remain    here   doing   assessment  work   and   waiting   for  the   mines   to  open   up  again.     A good many of the  miners were in favor of accepting  the  S3  and   going  back   to  work,  but the  majority    wanted   to   fight   for   their j  demanded rights, so it was decided  to  refuse   the   offer  of the  mineowners.  Kaslo is full of idle miners  at  present  as a"result."  .there  nuin-  ��� some  from  Manilla.    Mr. Harlan says in part:  It is rather late to wriie a letter after  so long a delay; but don't think that I  have forgotton you, or any of my  friends in Greenwood. Yesterday' the  thought came stronger than ever about  writing you. I am lying around in  camp now doing nothing but guard  and fatigue duty, and all I can think  of is getting back to America. I was  telling the boys here of the royal  Christmas dinner I partook of under  your generous hospitality and our  months fairly watered when I ran  over the menu, and you could, not  wonder why our minds turn to anything good to eat after seeing some of  the army fare we have to put up with  at times..'..';..,:...,  I have just passed through an active  campaign, which took all the strength  arid nerve the strongest of us could  put forth, to keep up under. The  advance on Mololos'' was started from  Manila on the 25th of March, and we  reached and took this place on the 31st  of March. In that time we marched  abotit forty miles and fought six different battles and numerous skirmishes.  In fact it was nearly a continous fight  from beginning to end for us, because  there-was hardly an hour of the day  but what bullets were flying towards  us and from us.  Our brigade had the most travelling.  Mololos  is   distant  twenty-one   miles  from Manila but our brigade was sent  out on  the  right  flank  to   drive  the  Insurrectos   into   the hills   which  we  did and rejoined the main   advance1 at  a  town  called  Polo,  on  the railroad.  The whole advance then kept near this  road and advanced most of the  way in  line of battle.    The  Insurrectos  made  their hardest tight at the Marilao river.  Here they had an  uncommonly  strong  position.      It   was    here     the   'South  Dakota  volunteers  (my regiment)  received their best reputation   as a fighting regiment.     We  made   a two  mile  charge and drove everything before us  and to the side of us.    We  cleared two  strong natural positions  and  two  fine  trenches.    The last big trench   was on  the   bank  of the river across froni us.  VVe jumped   into  the river  and  went  across   right   in   front of  this trench.  But fortunately the enemy had become  panic stricken before  we  reached   the  river and all but a few  left  before  we  crossed.      They   could  not  stand   the  rapid  advance  we were   making  and  deserted the strongest kind of a position.      But   before   all  these  trenches  were   cleared    the   enemy killed   and  wounded   a   good  number of our men.  The Mauser bullet has a wicked  pinge  and  before  we were* through I heard  many and many of them come near me  but fortunately none touched  me.     In  the   great din  and   uproar ..j>ne pays  little attention to bullets.    More of our  regiment  went down  with    the   heat  than with bullets.    I  half  fainted  before  the last trench  and  sank down.  I lay  in  an  exposed    and  dangerous  place for a few minutes.     One of  the  boys of company E. passing me poured  water on me and  I  soon   revived   and  went   on   in   time   to help on the last  trench.     I havertbeen  able  to always  stay at the front.    My health has been  excellent, I have not missed one hour's  dutj'yet.    But I have had all  the   war  I want not because of the   fighting but  because of  the  ill  treatment one   receives from the hands of petty  officers  and  one's  own   government.     I have  little respect for the  present  adminis-  teration at Washington.   I shall never  be as patriotic again, and will  be contented  to  leave  well  enough alone in  future.    I made too much of a sacrifice  to get to serve my country in   the  first  place and when I think of the chicanery and double dealing and selfishness  shown towards the volunteers my  soul  revolts, at further service for such an  administration.        The  service  is   too  hard   for such  ungreatful   cohnivers.  They have us here and they are trying  all  manner   of  ways  to hold, us here.  But I should  not complain   perhaps.  The joy  of   getting back   among  my  fridnds again will cause all this feeling  of belligerency to vanish.     About  the  first thing  I do  when  I  g.-t  back to  Greenwood will be to walk out   to your  home  and  go  to  your  back door and  ask for a hand out.     For a poor back  door   hand  out   is   mtich   better   than  what I get here.  This'soldering   will   be  a   good   ex-  perience for me in some   ways,   but   in '���  other  ways   the  experience   has  been  more detrimental, than useful.     I have ,  no one to blame but myself; I  can   see ;  how where my friends' judgement was  better than my own.    Still   I   love   ad- ;  adventure and if I   could   be   more   in-'  dependent  I  would   still   he  in for ad-,  venture,   but    when   handicapped    by ���  officers and army discipline I   care  for j  no more.    When I go  to war  again   it  will be on my own account.  GREENWOOD   is   the   financial   and  commercial  centre   of    oundary  Creek  district.

Aid. Sutherland, Jas. Robinson, and  a gang- of men are rapidly: pushing: the  wagon road from Boundary Creek to  the West Fork country.'���-' The road-,will  bring Greenwood thirty miles nearer a  district that is only rivalled by Boundary Creek proper. The West Fork  country' and Canyon Creek will, when  the new road is completed, b�� nearer,  Greenwood than Rock Creek. Prospectors and' others .will buy, all their  supplies here, and make Greenwood  their; headquarters. So far as the outside world is concerned; Canyon Creek  is an unknown territory, but the prospector���who has examined the ground,  uncovered the ledges, or cut through  the iron caps���and the metallurgist���  who has assayed the samples���are all  enthusiastic, and confident that the  Canyon Creek country will yet astonish  the mining world.;. |   ���  "Canyon'Creek1 is: one of the numerous  tributaries of Kettle !River. It empties  into the main river about 35 miles  above Rock Creek, and runs almost  parallel',(for; a considerable distance.;  The mining camp runs back to Cedar  Creek, ..another stream entering into.  the main river about eight miles below.  The area is a j considerable one. The  formation is quartzite and granite, and  the ledges are quartz carrying hig-h  gold and copper values. A prospector,  who has just returned from the district,  gave the following particulars regarding- the claims, the work done, and the  values of the ores :-��� '.'���'.]'���.'"'  "Ajnong the: claims upon which a  considerable amount of work has been  done is the Robin Hood, a Jrown  granted property owned by J. H. Gut.  fridge., There is a 5-foot ledge of solid  ore. on the property; . Assays average  $18, copper values being about 5 per  cent. -Adjoining-'the Robin'Hood is a  claim owned by Madison & Co. It has  a: large iron capping and a ledge; over  500 feet in ore. Assays run from $9 to  $30. TheMpgud^spvjnedby a"v'ictoria  company. /There is an 8-foot ledge on  this property running $100, and assays  as high as $600 have been secured.  The development -work consists of a  20-foot' stiaft' and numerous open cuts.  The Silver Dollar, owned by Petersen,  has ��� an immense iron capping, fully 600  fee't! wicle;1 There, is. a 20-foot tunnel  and'a: 40-foot shaft !6ri 'this property,  also numerous open cuts, all in ore.  Assays from this property run from $9  to $150: The Coin, joining the Silver  Dollar oirttie South, has'a ledge 20 feet  wide between well defined walls. It  gives .high values in gold and silver.  The Highland Mary, and adjacent  property,: is owned by Robt. Wood and  William'Miller-of Greenwood. ' The  ledge -has- been ,uncovered, exposing^8  feet of solid ore'and no walls. A quantity of the ore. is being brought down  to be thoroughly, sampled. North of  the Silver King is the Hunter group,  owned by Sullivan,Waddell, and others.  There is here a ledge 40 feet wide. One  assessment has been done, and the  property looks well. The Mayflower  is owned by W. S. Fletcher of Greenwood. Considerable work has been  done. Ten feet of ore has been crosscut, and no walls found. The River-  ' side is also owned by Mr. Fletcher.  When the work was started on this  property, the vein was only two feet  wide, but it widened until now the  > work is in 11 feet of solid high grade  ore. Another ; group, the Mountain  Queen, has been developed to some  extent. The group consists of the  Chateau, Iron King, Iron Duke, and  Mountain Queen. The Iron King is  simply a mountain of iron, through  which run veins of quartz carrying  gold and copper values. The same  veins extend' through the Iron Duke.  This group was recently bonded for a  large figure. The May Queen group  consists of the May Queen, Jewel, and  Golden Crown. The claims are owned  by John Simpson and brother of Rossland. Two assessments have been  done. There is an 18-foot ledge, and  assays as high as 18 per cent copper  and $22 in gold have been secured.  There is a large showing- in the Big  Chief owned by. John Gray."  The holders of properties are going  to do a large amount of development  work this year^ The camp will also  be more thoroughly prospected.  Dominion Day. As Canada's natal  day this year falls on Saturday, the  event will be celebrated on July 1 and 3.  The next day���July 4���will draw all  the people of the Boundary district to  Nelson, Washington. A splendid programme has been arranged for the two  days celebration. Over $2,000 will be  distributed as prizes for the horseraces  and athletic games and sports!1 There  will be a double-hand drilling-contest,  for which a first prize of $150 will be  offered and a second prize of $50. The  horseraces promise to be a very attractive featured The events will include  running races, notably a two, hundred  yard, three hundred yard, a #-mile  dash, yi mile, and races of ffs-mile.  The baseball teams of the; Boundary  will compete for the handsome silver  cup recently offered for competition by  Mayor Lloyd A. Manly.

A   GOVERNMENT   ROW.  A Racy Dispatch Sent Out from Victoria In  Regard to Cabinet Ministers.  Victoria, June 5.���A violent altercation between ' ministers Martin and  Cotton took place yesterda3' at a private interview between the members  of a Vancouver delegation and the executive respecting Deadman's island,  and though the delegation pledged  themselves to secrecy as to the proceedings, a story of an unseemly row  has leaked out together with other information. As one delegate put it,  Martin simply made rag- of Cotton,  charging him with rank disloyalty to  Vancouver, of which Martin proclaimed  himself the champion. He freely revealed details of the proceeding of  tecent cabinet meetings, and, it is  said, virtually gave Cotton the lie.  Semlin seemed greatly distrassed at  Martin's violence and repeatedly  begged him to be more temperate, but  the atiorney-general took no notice of  the premier's remonstrances.  Greenwood, B. C.

Because the title to Beayer:  ton is perfect.   , ,.���.,���,.   ,;..  Who owns Beaverton ?. The trading men in Greenwood mostly !  Bankers, the townsite owners of Greenwood, your leading brokers, assayers,  merchants, mining men,  and citizens. ,,  Why do they own property in Beaverton���?.   Because they know a good  thing when they see it.    That is what  is building Greenwood  city up so  fast, and besides they have been on the ground and have seen it themselves.  :' Beaverton  is  the   cerminiis of the West Fork branch of the Canadian  Pacific'Railway, there are no other branches in that part of the country.  -  Why is Beaverton going, to be prosperous and a1 large arid thriving  centre ?. Because it is the key to the entire mining district, and running  right up to, in fact right into the town, are some of the largest and richest  surface showings of mineral on the continent.: Ask such-: experienced men  in these matters as Robt. .Wood, George Guess, C.

The fire should teach other  'cities' similarly.: [situated.', a     f-rcihle  ���lesson.     Prevention "is the maiu   idea  :in a mining town   comprised chWlv of  frame buildings.    An   eflicieut   system  of fire protection is an absolute  necessity- but  even with the best protection  ���if a fire once gets headway in the busi-  'hess portion of a city built of wood, the1  [possibility   of   quenching   it, , is very  ^remote. ��� It is stated   that  a defective  ,!stqvepipe     was     responsible   for   the  , ^Republic .fire.    It often   happens' that  :those  little   things ; that 'might .have  been easily rectified are responsible, for  -big conflagrations. .   .  ."->; In -Greenwood for  instance the pror  [Visions   of  the fire  protection   by-law  ;are ;hot  enforced  so  ragidly   as   they  "ought to be. '   :     ;  >���������'���:  ' ;]The best possible safeguard  against-  ifircis a due appreciation   by  everyone  ;of the   importance  of, preventing one.  "It is characteristic of ordinary  human  ;'nature to treat with contempt an invis-  riblejdanger;   and    the   most"   foolish  [chances are taken. ���' A fire such as that  Hri Republic, would -ruin   nearly 'every  ���rbusiness man in.the city.    Many carry  ^insurance it is true, but not sufficient  ' to ��� compensate, for a total loss by fire,  i While prevention is the best remedy,  .[���'it "should  be  the   ambition   of-every  growing city to have plenty  of water,  [ good  fire  apparatus,   and  an efficient  ; and;enthusiastic fire department.     All  'three are possible in Greenwood.     The  r.fire .laddies are made of the right kind  ,[.!of stuff, and with training wouldm'ake  ' [a good, showing.  not slow in stating that rivalry had  overcome their discretion and that  there was not sufficient business for  three banks in Greenwood. The Victoria Colonist poked fun at th��- Canadian Bank of Commerce, calling it a  giddy thing, and wondered what the  English shareholders in the Bank of  B. N. A. would think of its enterprising B. C. officials. It turns out that  the banks knew more about their business than outsiders and were , able to  mere accurately gauge the bright  future of the city. Each bank has been  forced.to increase its staff to keep pace  with the growing business. The Bank  of B. N. A. was fortunate in securing  commodious quarters at [the start, but  the other banks have been forced to  secure larger offices. The, Bank of  Commerce has handsome offices in the,  Naden-Flood block, and next week the  Bank of Montreal will move into quarters in the Rendell block that would  do no discredit to a city of 10,000 inhabitants. The '^'giddy young thing"  made no mistake in becoming associated with Greenwood, and the conservative Englishman is more than satisfied  with his investments in the,.city.  Greenwood is indeed enjoying a growing time.  creates   more  smelter men.  business     than     three  By hard work the celebration committee can make Dominion Day celebration the biggest and most successful  event which ever took place in the  Boundary creek district.  Had the government built the West  Fork bridge instead of tinkering with  a ferry, money would have, been saved  and the big mining district would not  be retarded. .  Greenwood is no gateway  city,  is a commercial and mining centre.  It  ��f>  THE MINISTMRIAL FIGHT.  GREENWOOD'S GROWTH.  Greenwood  never   passed  through  the - exciting ���' though' 'unprofitable  experiences   connected   with  a boom.  The mines of the district are so directly  tributary  to the city that its growth  and    prosperity."   naturally   depended  upon  the  activity   displayed   in    the  development of  the mineral resources  in   the., immediate    vicinity.       When  mining-was   dull;   business   in   Greenwood was not active.    The extra spurt  made by the mines in order to be  in, a  ...position  to  ship  upon  the.completion  _ .of the railway hashadits^influence upon business of the city and   its  growth  since the  first- of: the year has been  remarkable. Nexl.week the Times will  publish a conservative estimate of the  outlay in buildings since   January 1st,  1899.    In the Xmas number we had an  estimate of the value of the buildings I  in the city.    From figures  gathered   it j  will   be  seen   that  these  values  have j  been  more  than  doubled iduring   the i  past five months.  While the highly entertaining dispatches sent out from Victoria relative  to the-trouble between fighting "-Joe "  Martin and F. C. Cotton should be  largely discounted there is a strong  probability that there is some fire with  so much smoke.' The government is'a  peculiar organization. The strength  of the Turner party lay in the weakness of the opposition. . The Turner  government- was defeated not by. a  party but by the. dissatisfied people.  The Semlin government was patched  up simply to meet the exiegencies of  the hour., Mr. Martin and Mr. Cotton  are both ambitious. Both are clever.  The one is fearless and the other is  astiite. Th'ey both realize that age  and incapacity will force Mr.'Semlin  to retire from the premiership and are  fighting for the position. ' It is quite  possible that while they are fighting  each other, the position may 'go to  some one else. In the meantime "they  are furnishing plenty of amusement to  those watching current events in the  province.  4��-  a-V4'    *,f4     a*"5-  ~A?-   ~4k~     ���vii"  Thos. McDonnell. R. M.

It  is hoped  situated that the only influence that  could successfully retard its growth is  the failure to develop the mining  ., possibilities of Boundary creek district.  As such failure is indeed remote there  can scarcely be a tiotibt that since  Boundary creek is to be one of the  greatest mining districts in the world,  its metropolis Greenwood will be corresponding!)- important.  The time.when Greenwood will take  rank among the mining and commercial centres can be hastened by the  citizens.' All that is required is a  unity of purpose and a fixed determination to leave nothing undone that will  promote the best interests  of  the city.  that the invitation will be accepted.  To visit the mines of B. C. without  seeing the mines in Boundary Creek  would be like seeing Hamlet played  with Hamlet left out.  CORYELL'S MAP, Price $1.25.

of the rich mining section of the West Fork country. Located at the confluence of Beaver Creek and West Fork

location. TO THE MANY BUYERS Eager to get in oh the ground floor of Rendell we beg to say,lots will be

Or»e A."§. St. de Dalnias has arranged
a wonderful combination in the shape
of 3. Union of religion and mining
.stocks. In a- leaflet circulated in Rossland tyr-.de st. Dalmas volunteer's the
jrif0rniati6n that was engaged for
seveJl af-d half years in business before he entered the ministry after
which he \y3.s for 16 years a Christian
pastor in Ontario. The greater need
of Christian Workers in British Columbia finally induced him to come to this
province and he is going to establish a
self^iipportJug- mission, wholly supporting h'irnself by agencies in connection with several of the best and
safe$ts g'old mining companies in
British Colombia. The circular coatings; ''Any remuneration received
for Christ'of* work I at once hand
over ^Or the mission building—to the
treasurer-—and hope to see the building
erected free from debt. Being in the
centfe of the STold mines and receiving
infofTOation direct, I am now in a
position to receive orders from any
who desire to make safe investments,
and put thern into some of the most
profitable and safest mines in the
Tri'fi Rossland Miner very properly
cornrfierjis adversely on this intermixture of relig-ion and the brokerage
business and suggests that he is
simply placing his sign over the very
door ot the temple. The Miner does
not dol*bt that he purposes doing all
that he says he will do or that he
migrht accomplish some direct good.
But the indirect evil which would be
occasioned by the church entering into
competition with the world for the
brokerage business to be obtained in
the jCootetiays would far more than
counterbalance any benefit from his
work. Besides, what limit would be
set to this species of church operation.
Other" men less conscientious than
Mr. dfi St. Dahlias might, by observing
his stress, adopt the same plan without the same purity of motives or
honesty of intention. The spiritual
guide5 of the people should be very
caref ttl how they lend their endorsation
to schemes of this character. The
church wiU best discharge her mission
to mankind by depending on the free
and grateful contributions of the
Go^Pil & Holden, signwriters, painters, paperhangers, etc., etc., etc.

There is not the slightest doubt  that   by    swearing,    practically    un-  <��� checked,   under   the   rough-and-ready  system; large numbers of Orientals-  Chinese   and   Japanese���are.; now acquiring  rights   of   citizensKip   after  altogether inadequate   residence   and  settlement   in   the   province.     These  Orientals nave recently been, and are  being,  naturalized   by   hundreds,   although many of them are undoubtedly  but recent incomers, amongst whom  not a few are in reality migrants, who  make from, and for Japan before and  after our fishery seasons.  This hasty and wholesale naturaliza-  ��� tion, without scrutiny, of Orientals of  a low grade, and this for material reasons only, is rapidly approaching, if it  have not already reached, the dimensions  of: a   public scandal.    Yet Sir  Wilfrid   Laurier   and   his   colleagues  seem as usual regardless of the just  claims in  the matter of the ordinary  British citizenship of this province.  Mr. Mclnnes alone among our British Columbia members of parliament  on the government side, seem to. be  active in assertion of the claims for  reasonable protection in this matter of  the interests of the masses of our white  laboring population, and he, unfortunately, allows his zeal to outrun his  discretion, by asking rather too much,  which affords the Dominion government a ready way of escape from action  in the case. Under existing circumstances trie ordinary white labor of our  province stands at grave risk of being  ���wamped in the early future by a vast  immigration of sweated labor from the  Orient, which is already steadily displacing the Canadian worker in many  employments in this province.  Meanwhile, the fact that this cheap  Mongolian labor is becoming abundantly available is, in particular, being  freely advertised in England as an inducement for outside capital to enter  the province. Thus, the prospectus'of  a recently organized and already  floated hydraulic gold mining company  in Cariboo, having an authorized capital of no less than ^350,000, we refer  to the Cariboo Consolidated, Limited���  recently stated, as a special inducement to investors, that Chinese and  Japanese labor would be available on  terms of a dollar to a dollar and a half  a day less than the remuneration of  the white worker. Our province can  doubtless absorb and assimilate a limited number of Oriental settlers, sans  displacement of white labor, but the  bounds imposed by this limitation are  rapidly being passed, and it is time to  "cry a halt."  The very least that should be done  is, therefore, to reduce the present encouragement afforded to Mongol incomers by the easy granting of all the  privileges of British citizenship at  almost the shortest notice, and on condition only of a little hard swearing,  and that if altogether unchecked.���  Vancouver News-Advertiser.  of it, too, the message bears the stamp  of entire ignorance of the situation.  The redistribution bill now before parliament is intended simply to correct  the injustice which was created by the  Conservative gerrymander of 1882, and  does not increase the representation, in  the house. It only applies, too; to some  of the counties in Ontario aud Quebec.  British Columbia cannot, obtain increased representation until the new  census has been taken, when, there is  no doubt the province will be fairly  treated and the Kootenays will obtain  at least one member to themselves.  Until that time arrives, however,', such  action as that taken by the Board of  Trade on Wednesday night is utterly  useless.  It is possible, of course, although  highly improbable, that the intention  of the Boaid was to induce the government to so re-arrange the representa-  tiori of the province as it now exists  that the Kootenays would obtain a  member at the expense of some other  constituency, which may have larger  representation than it is entitled to.  This would argue a simplicity which  is worse than ignorance. The only instance of this kind in the province is  Victoria, which is certainly over represented. When the general redistribution is made Victoria, of courseKwill  lose one of her members; but to urge  for such a re-arrangement at the present time would make us rediculous.  The Board of Trade has some good  capable business men among its members and if they exerted some of their  energy and ability in the right direction no doubt they would accomplish  something.   '���  without being mixed up with any other  question. , We think, therefore, that  the Conservative party ivould act  wisely to approach the question of senate reform from a critical, rather than  a distinctly hostile attitude. Much of  the success of that party hitherto has  been in the ability of its leaders to  keep in touch with the moveOiei>t of  public opinion.���Colonist.  m  I). PALMEK.  K..IUJJJT18R.  THE SENATE.  LACK OF INTEREST.  The following from the Rossland  Miner shows that the business men of  Rossland not far behind those of  Greenwood in the small amount of interest they take in public affairs:  If the board of trade of Rossland  would direct its energies in some  reasonably intelligent manner and not  in the fitful, hysterical fashion which  seems to characterize it, some benefit  might accrue to the town from its existence. At the present time Rossland  is badly in need of public buildings  and it is now that a vigorous effort,  properly directed, might result in the  Dominion government putting such a  subsidy in the estimates as would meet  our present requirements. Nothing,  however, in this direction has been  done beyond a brief request made, by  wire, to the member for the district to  use his influence with the government  and a commission very negligently  given to some prominent citizens,  whose business happened to call them  to Ottawa, to lend their support.  There has been no earnestness in  the representations made from here���  no insistance such as is absolutely  essential to obtain favors from a government. And now instead of pressing for what is so urgently needed, and  pressing at the most critical time, the  board flies off on another scent and  sends out a feverish message to the  boards of trade in the district asking  for co-operation in a demand for a separate reprssentative for the Kootenays  ���in the Dominion house.  We are at a loss to see what is to be  gained  by this demand.    On the face  There are now twenty-six Liberal  members in the senate, and when the  late Senator Boulton's place is filled  the number will be twenty-seven. The  full number of the senate is eighty-one.  It is, therefore, very clear that if the  present government remains in power  much longer the senate majority will  be Liberal, without the exercise of the  power vested in the Governor-General  to appoint six new senators, when the  interests of the country seem to demand it. We submit that it is not desirable for the senate to become and be  recognizedas a partisan body, but we  greatly fear that the tendency is in  that direction. ��� Indeed, such a result  is almost inevitable under our political  system, it matters not what party is in  power. Rightly or wrongly makes no  difference; the Liberals believe the  senate,- as at present constituted, is  strongly partisan against them, and if  they ever have a chance' to alter its political complexion we may depend upon  it that the partisan spirit will not be  eliminated. Hence, as under any circumstances political partisanship is  likely to find expression in the upper  chamber, the people of Canada ought  to consider if some change in the manner of filling vacancies in that body  cannot be devised with advantage.  Speaking the other day in parliament  Sir Charles  Tupper  said  that   if the  senate should  throw out a bill which  the government of the day regarded as  of prime importance,  the   remedy  of  dissolution was always  available, and  that the senate would never go contrary to the opinion of the people'expressed at the polls.    If this is the object of the senate, to compel an appeal  to the people, the danger of its becoming a partisan body is increased.    We  confess never to have been enamored  with the idea that any body of legislators in Canada who  are  beyond  the  reach of the people.    Comparisons between the House of Lords and the Canadian Senate  are quite useless.    The >  House of Lords is a survival from the j  earliest days of  British parliamentary :  government.   British institutions have i  grown   up  with  the  House  of  Lords, ���  forming an integral part of them.    It  is a unique body.    Its existence proves  nothing except that it is not a menace  to  British  institutions,   which it could '���  not very well be, because it is identified ,  to an extraordinary degree with   British interests.    No appointive body   in  Canada can  possibly  fill such  a position   as   the   House   of  Lords  in   the  United  Kingdom.     Hence  any  references to the latter are of little use  in  determining  the  value of the senate.  To believe that a change is necessary,  and to devise a new  method of filling  vacancies  are  very   different   things.  We  think a majority  of the people of  Canada favor a change,  and that the  Conservative party   will make  a mis- !  take to set itself against it on principle, ;  whatever attitude :t  may take on the  details  of  the   proposed   amendment.  The votes of the legislatures of three  of the Eastern   provinces havebeen in  favor of an  alteration ot the B. N. A.  act in this regard,  and we  venture  to ,  say that Manitoba and  British Colum- ;  bia would vote in the same  way if the  single issue could be presented to them, j  ���J5ift  Contractors and Builders H  n"  m TURNING AND BANDSAfffE  M  A  SPECIALTY.

Haskins, a venerable freighter,  left this week for the other side, taking  with him several teams of horses.  Haskins was freighting between Bossburg and Greenwood last winter. He  got into financial difficulties, and his  teams were seized by the sheriff. Aid.  Cropley came to his rescue, and paid  the indebtedness, taking a mortgage  on the stock as security. Haskins did  a general teaming business around the  city for a few weeks. It was then disT  covered that he had suddenly left the  city, without paying the amount due  Mr. Cropley.
