A  great ,deaT of  svork had   to     he  .done at  Midway,  principally  in    preparing  the'very  large yards,  but the  lei.nilily-ion steam-shovel  svhich  was at  work tire-re made short svork of that  ������uul  also   of   the various  heavy    quts  ���������west oi'   the town.    It  svas about .six  miles  west .of -Midway  that  the first  wery  dirlieult  svork   svas encuiinter-ed.  At Myers'  C-rc.-k  Canyon a tunnel over eight hundred   feet  long  has  to be  constructed.   About   luUf   of   this has  ���������been completed, and  as svork is nosv  being  pushed on at both ends,  it  is  expected   tl'mt   more   rapid   |*rogi*ess  will  be  made.    Other  smaller      tunnels     :biet'w.oe.n  Mid svay   and  Molson  -tiaw been  completed.

In  the heavy  svork along      the  southern bank  of Rock creek    good  progress  has  been made.  .Several  bridges  that  have  yel      to  he completed  svill  delay  track-laying,  as tin* .upper structure- is larelv put  ('.n until  brought up the track.  After  the track has  been  foal las led  to Mol-  son  that     svill  in all probability be  the  terminus  for a Few* 'weeks;      the  bridging of the pk���������nairan and .Si-mil-  kaineeii,  is progressing  very satisfactorily.

This consists of a mori Hot no/./el that may  ���������he  used  on (ire   buats,  host-   wagons  and   in  many, other    places.      When  the matter of  the rebuilding of   the  lire-boat  Siift^iiahnle came  up a fesv  months ago Chief. Ralph Cook asked  for     prices on monitor nozzles, and  found that    they would cost    $1,000  apiece.'     He      dechiect that   a better  nozzle could lie built here by the department   itself, and' for a great deal  less  money. s Me  at once  too'c       the  ��������� matter up svith Ljnch, and  tsvo no/.-  ���������  zles has'e been  completed, and      will  be  installed on   the Snoqiialiiwo in a  few days.  The    tsvo     nozzles  just completed  cost $225,  or .a saving;   of nearly $2,-  000 user  svhat  they  would have cost  ;if  bought  outright.    Six  more    are  to  be placed  on  the  boat.   It' is also  the    intention  of the chief to place  one of the ncss*- appliances on  each of  the hose carts, which will enaihlc them  fo  anssver the j-'irpose of a, battery  such as is used  in the San Francisco  department.  The tsvo   nosv completed  throw    a  3A-inch     fit ream,      and   svill   be  the  most powerful  of all ..the  alliances  in  use in  the city.  Anolher point in  fnvor o'' the new nozzle ^s compared  with the one commonly in use is that".  t it,  weighs only 150 pounds, ;>s opposed  to 1,000-for  the old style.  In the  Porl.l.i'iid   ' lire      boat,     the extreme  weight, of the appliances has caused  a great deal  of  trouble.- Willi     thc  nesv appliance  one man can  operate  spieral, Mreams   ,  as after   they are.  once in position  they  remain  at the  ilesiied angle,  no, matter  hosv strong  the  pressure of   the stream.

There-h ad been a serious difference  of ���������'opinion betsveen the majority u'Ni  the minority members of the committee, and it had been argued in committee that such a course svas illegal  'Mc:-'was prepared to argue the eon-  su'tutionialit)- of the course he proposed.  Mr. Bowser objected thai lhe mo-  tiur svas out of order.  . > Mr. Macdoual'd asked for a ruling.  J Ion. R. McBride said that the  leader of the apposition svas trying  to do by an indirect method what  he could not do directlys lie raised  the point of order that no minority  report  could be  icceised.  Mr.  llaicdonal'd  pointed  out     that  tli:* point of .order was not well _ak-  | en, as he  was  claiming tbe right    to  move an  amendment   to a motion be-  To re the house.   He .(t/ioted from Bour  inot's parliamentary   procedure       to  .justify   his  position   and  cited cases  where the House of Commons     had  allowed a minority  reporL   to  bo   appended-against  the objections- ot  the  majority,   lie also read a ruling from  Llakmore" to  the same effect.        He  claimed   that  it  was  alsvass  compe-'  tent for   thc house  to  instruct       the  c mi mittee ou  recominital.  Mr. Speaker   Pooley  thought a.t the  present      si age   that   the authouties  were against   the admission  of    anv  a ":iendnien(   on   the reception  of a ic-  . ��������� it.    It  might  be  in cuder  on       a  motion  to adopt.  Mr. Macdonald pointed out that tho  1 yic-al   cojiclusicn   of   Mr.   Bowser's  argument was  that 'the house had n.o  .-osver to     recommit���������an  aL'surdity;  , s svas evidenced by   tbe almost daily  practice of   the. house.  Mr. Olioer thought it svas a debatable cfuestion. Whether until the  '������������������'.lorfc had been received by the  ii-rase, the committee had not dis-  ch.u-ged its functions. Up to that:  si.ige the house could issue any insl ructions, it pleased. He quoted  from May in support of liis contention.  The     speaker  said  he  svould   take  "ilie mutter   into   caiisideriatjon  gi.e his' decision; later.
