The Hon. Colonel  Baker was very facetious in his. reply  and said thiit the opposition had predicted the fall of the Government for  (he past (ern years and would'do so for  ten niore. I always considered the  'Colonel to be an imaginative man but,  now I am .sure ,of it- a--, it icf.iiires a  strong imagination lo imagine the  Turner Government in power for another ten years. He gave great credit  to the Altoi iiey-General for having  kepi law and ordei like he did and  eulogised Hon. Air., AI-ti tin ie 'connection vvitli the new parliament buildings.

Sword agreed wiih the Colonel. Hon.  Mr. Turner said it was a weighty mailer and was afraid lhal such a policy  would injure the mining induslry. Mr.  Foslei thought il would stop settlement (.1 newly opened di-li-Irls and  would pi-obiibiy close down low grade  mines.

Adair, a miner wbo-lias.  worked on the Orphan Roy from , the  very beginning and who has just returned, the following 'particiil.-us of  work done have been gleaned. Knowing the very general interest taken in  the piogiess of this property1 both on  its own, account and that of the  neighborhood in which it is located the  details aie given at .some length.  The work on  the Orphan  Roy   was  commenced about I he Sth  of  October  and with -even men woi king has  lieen  steadily   prosecuted   ever   since. (,The'  ('���������am]) was first built and I hen work was  begun   ou   Ihe   claim.     A   shaft   was  started in one of Die smaller leads  but,  was discontinued lest there   would   he  insiilTicient powder and .-ill bauds were  put on the No.  1  tunnel.   The  tunnel  was staited to crosscut the lead and ,it  caught tine  wall   with    forty-five   feet  driven.    It then  cut   the   lead   at   an  angle of thirty-five   degrees   and   lulling 7!) feet went through a lead 25  feet  wide fioin wall to wall.    Of. this lead,  nine feet is splendid free milling quartz  and along the foot,   wall   is^a   fourteen  inch streak of ore which so closely  n;-  s >nihies some of the Trail ores that put,  together they could not he told   apart.  In the  qua it'/,  free  gold   was  plainly  discernible in several places with   the  eye.     From  starting  point  to    finish  No. 1 tunnel is in 12f feet, and   the  ore  on   the   dump    mostly    free    milling  cpiai tz is about  seven   hundred   tons.  There    was    no   limbering   necessary  except the first thirty feet.   At or near  the end of   the  tunnel-a  body  of decomposed quatzvvasstruck which from  all appearances should   he enormously  rich.   On the (ith ofr.Tanuary a  second  tunnel   (No. 2)  was commenced   at   a  p-iint about 125  feet   lower  tnati   the  first and is now in  7S, feet.   -It   is   ex-  i- -  peeled to cut the lead again with about  six or mote feet lo run. On gelling  under cover in No. 2 the outer edge of  a holly of what looked like decomposed  asbestos was struck and il is believed  that a large quantity ,of that mineral  substance is close at hand. r[-  There.are fom other distinct leads  on the'Oi phan I3o'y, -varying from."11  iiTcbes'tb/t.vvo feet'vvi tie,' and are all, of-  rtAyery promising- free mjlliiic. -charac^  ti'V.-" The shaft?' lii-fTm*- spoken" o'fwiTs"'  sunk on one of 'these for'J25 feet and  was in on* all, the way.

' This opinion is shan d  by all who have worked on it and as  an evidence of their opinion some of  the boys are, I understand, taking  slock in the company. Within five  weeks the ledge will, if it, keeps its dip,  be struck and I then expect to see the  Orphan Boy take a front rank. It has  ey,i*ry convenience theie for handling  cheaply; theie is -plenty of water for-  milling or pumping or anything else'  and .any quantity of good timber.  TRUE FISSURE SOLD.
