election. j
It Is Believed That the Gov-!   The government realizing   this Successful Entertainment by
will, it is generally   believed,  never j     Loca, y^j ■„ the 0pera

Meet House Again
Disappointment   Felt   That
Power Question Was Not
Most of the members of the legislature still remain in the oity, says
tin* Victoria Daily Times of the 13th
inst. Several of tbem will'get away
tonight, but a few have other business in Victoria and will not be leaving for some days.   .
The pinching out ol the West
Kootenay Power company's bill at
the final sitting last evwHtng is regarded as an unfortune'WSewrrence
by most of the members and by
tliOBe interested in the Wjst Kootenay and Cascade companiia. Many
.believe it would have been wiser for
the premier to have put off proroga-
won until today and allowed the
ljpuse to again take up the qnestion
at today's session.
As the matter now Btands the situation is left just as it was before the
legislature. The West Kootenay
coinpany has its wires put into the
Boundary district. The failure to
get the bill through the house leaves
it impossible to supply power to the
smelters situated in that district.
An impression prevails that there
may he an attempt made to over
come tl is by entering into a mutual
vrrane. ment with the Granby com
puny. The West Kootenay corpor
ation by this arrangement would
convey the power to the boundaries
of Yale pistrict. The Granby com
pany would there take it and act as
a distributor from that point.
The bill gave the private bills
committee more trouble than all the
other billg-brought before them. The
legal members of the committee in
the end took sides with one or other
company nnd advocated the views oi
their companies respectively. It re
niained for T. W. Paterson and Dr.
Young, ns lay members, to attempt
to arrange a compromise which
would he suitable to both parties.
These two members were acknowledged to have worked most assiduously to settle the question, but without success.
With tho prorogation the attention is attracted to election matters.
There are many indications thnt
this will be brought about before
another session. If the present government is allowed to take nn np*
peal, it is felt it will do so. It would
be extremely unsafe to face another
session with the present house
which would realize that an election
must come after that session. The
desire on the part of many members
to retain their seats with the prospect of another session alone prevented the defeat of the government.
The Socialists would not be bound
by any ties, possibly, next session,
but would seize upon a suitable time
to defeat the government. Members
of the Conservative party realize that
they have enormous sins to answer
for on account of endorsing the
government's actions. Given the
opportunity to redeem themselves
The directors of the Eastern Townships . bank announce a dividend at
the rate of 8 per cent per annum upon the paid up capital of the bank for
the quarter ending March 31st, and
the same will be payable at the head
office and branches on/and after April
2 next.
An order in council was signed on
Saturday last authorizing a reference
to Chief Justice Hunter of the status
of the Midway k Vernon Railway
company's claim to a subsidy, and
undertaking to pay the same if such
decision is favorable to the  company.
The Canadian Pacific railway company is constructing a large and elegant steamer on Okanagan lake, designed to operate in connection witli
the extension from Midway to Penticton. It will have sixty staterooms and
[will cost something like $90,000. This
route to the coast will effect considerable saving in time as compared with
the present roundabout way, but will
not be able to compete with the Vancouver, Victoria it Eastern, as on this
road there will be no delay due to
changing from train to boat.
An inquest was held at the police
office, Midway, Monday morning
touching the death uf Alexander Red
mond, aged 39 years, a Nova Scotiau,
who for the past six weeks hod been
employed as foreman in Gallagher's
No. 2 camp. From the evidence ad
duced it appears that last Friday sev
eral bottles of whisky found their way
into the camp. After quitting'work,
and on arrival at the tent, the bottles
were uncorked and those present, including deceased, partook of the contents. After deceased hod taken
several drinks from the bottle, he exclaimed: ■'Look at the effects of this
whiskey on my stomach." It was noticed that his stomach was greatly distended and he was compelled to loosen
his clothing. In spite of this, however,
he took several more drinks, until he
became more or less intoxicated
About 10 o'clock, when nearly all the
others had retired for the night, Redmond suddenly fell to the floor. One
of his companions tried to raise him
up, but failed to tlo so, antl it was
thought he would bo all right in the
morning. When morning came he was
found lying face downwards, his hands
crossed under him, just where ho hail
fallen the previous night. Some one
tried to rouse him, and it was then
discovered that ho was death No ill
effects followed the drinking of the
same liquor in the case of the others.
Deceased hud stated previously that
he had been troubled with his stomach
and had undergone hospital treatment,
This wus the first liquor that had been
in the camp for weeks, it being against
the rules to bring it in. The jury returned a verdict of "death from natural causes."
It iB reported that if there is no
delay in the arrival of material from

'chicken feed" into big bills. Stone
was arrested Tuesday night, but as
there is no jail in Danville, he was
handcuffed nnd chained to an iron
bedstead in a room over night. During the night he managed to break
the bedstead, antl made his escape
through a window. Since then the
ollicers of the law have been on bis
truck, but up to this evening he had
not been cavtured. He is supposed
to be on this side the line.
The patriotic entertainment given
under the auspices of the Ladies'
Aid of the Methodist ehureh in the
Grand Forks opera house Tuesday
evening was attended by a large and
appreciate audience. An excellent
literary and musical program was
satisfactorily carriex! out. Miss Alice
Lequime started t;ne program with
a song. This youSg lady possesses
rare acting instincts.^ind her voice
was also greatly adujired. '" "Siiif;
Me to Sleep," by Miss. Nellie Carter, kept the audienct>fftit of a somnolentia state for ihe'ftQxt few minutes, as they were too gngcr to listen
to the young lady's voice, which is
of great promise. The humorous
dialogue given by Mrs.'D'Annum
and her two boys and two girls' created a whirlwind if merriment.
" 'Tis All That I Can *'ay," was rendered by Miss'Ellie Ross in her usual pleasing style. Miss Manly and
Miss Marjorie Kernan gave violin
solos. Both were well rendered, and
brought the performers merited
applause. A piano solo by Mr.
Mitchell, of the Granby smelter, followed. Mr. Mitchell was rewarded
by being lustily encored. Mr.
tieorge, as Dr. Cureall, in a humor
oils skit, made a hilarious hit, nnd
'took in" many patients. Mr.
Bishop sang "I Fear No Foe" in
good voice. All the number were en
cored. Mrs. E. Miller presided nt

for a number of years, broke into

Differed From Colleagues on
Bill for Subsidy to
Wanted to Make Statement
in the House But Was
A Victoria dispatch of the 14th
inst. states that Attorney-General
Charles Wilson has sent in his resignation as a member of the McBride government. Mr. Wilson is
at present in Ottawa. Hon. F. J.
Fulton, provincial secretary, takes
temporary charge of tbe attorney-
general's department. Mr. Fulton
will likely continue to fill the position, thus avoiding the unpleasant
necessity of opening any constituency at the present time.
When Mr. Wilson left for Ottawa
on private business in the midst of
the heaviest part of thc session there
was a prophecy made about the
legislature tint he would never again
be seen in tbe attorney-general's seat
in the house.
Hon. Mr. Wilson and his colleagues did not see eye-to-eye on the
Columbia & Western subsidy bill,
which was then prepared and ready
for presentation to the houBe. It is
even said that he was with difficulty
restrained from making his position
clear on the floor of the house on
this question. Hatl he been a private member, instead of a member
of the government, he would likely
have taken this course. For the
sake of his party, however, the attorney general refrained from an
open split and consented to withdraw from the scene, taking advantage of the opportunity to go east on
private business as a blind until the
session closed.
His resignation, however, it is
understood was then handed in on
the understanding that thc premier,
for the advantage of the party,
might keep it back until the house
rose. The time has now come and
the resignation is in and accepted.

Last summer, during the fight in
Ottawa on the amendment to the Vancouver, Victoria it Eastern Railway
company's charter, the Canadian Pacific railway raised the cry of "Canada
for the Canadians." Last week a dispatch from Vancouver stated the Canadian Pacific had invested one million dollars in water front property in
Seattle, and that it intended to establish its Pacific coast headquarters in
that oity. The road is also buildin
into Spokane. Evidently the Canadian Pacific has amended its p itriotic
shibboleth so as to read: "Canada and
the United States for the Canadian
