Hyattr;arrived at Sicamous about a week, ago  from Endeiby, and was^on his _way to^  the Coast in search of employment.  He seemed very despondent, partly  owing to the nei\ s he had received from  his .sister in Blackhca'th, England,'  that'his mother had died there on the  ,14th of Kebruary. lie stated"to several  tha,t he thought he would drown himself, but naturally they 'thought the  was only joking.    '  About nooinThursday lie was seen  sitting by the water's edge holding his  head in his hands in rather a despondent manner, and Mr. .Maxwell went  down and'spoke to. him, 'asking him  to coipe up and take dinner withJiim.'  Tie, however, declined, and ton Max-  well's'departuie rushed out into the  water and threw himself. vface down-,  ward'^'ifwas'iiot till s6iii_5*iittlG tane  afterwards the body was'discovered, as  the cimciit had carried it a' short  distance away fiom the shore. If it  was not for the fact that Mrs. Maxwell,  who was quite a distance away, saw  the man wade into the lake it would  piobably never be known how or when  he dis.ippeaied.  Coroner Bums of Kamloops arrived  same evening and.empanncllcd a jury  who, after investigation, rendered a  veidict of death, bydrowning.

His  report-was as follows.���������        ,   ,  '���������' Hot "Springs < at Airow Lake. T  visited these remarkable springs on  24th and 20th Apiil, 189G. There are  'two important springs which unite to  foini the supply of the baths at the  Halcyon Hotel.  ���������'The tcmpciature at the souice :s  12L F.. and the sulphuretted hydrogen  is 4,097 parts per million. The two  souices were examined separately and  found to be identical in charnctet. so  that ihey undoubtedly have a common  snbtenanean oiigin, the so called  northern spring, situated some little  distance north of these. It has a temperature of 120 K.. and contained J.010  parts sulphuretted hydrogen per  million. The following numbers were j  "obtained on analysis of the water,  front the Hot Springs proper:  Chlorine     20 0  per mil.

Another notable feature in the composition of the water is the presence  ot a very considerable amount of Sul-  phuietted Hydrogen, and also of the  rate substance of Lithia. Oi this  latter substance there is fully six  times as much as is shown to exist in  two different American waters, Banff  and Buffalo, the results of the analysis  of which are now before us.  (Signed) J. FALCONER KiXG,F.C.S.

I   judge   this   from  die .-pcctro-copic investigations, to be  about ten time the quantity   present  in the Hot Springs at Banfl, and have  no   hesitation    in   saying    that   this  spring is among the richest in lithium  salts  in   America���������if   not indeed   the  very richest in thi1; respect."

I  COURT INVESTIGATION.  ft is stated that Thomas W. Lawson  of Boston, who is now attacking the  trusts by magazine articles, will shortly begin an investigation of Canadian  financial schemes, especially real  estate advertisements where quick and  large profits are being featured. We  believe particular attention will be  given to a series of advertisements now  running in the "Mail," in which great  inducements are offered to small inventors. We are informed by the  parties responsible for the ads that  they court investigation of their statements, as proof can be given that immediate and large profits have been  realized by nearly every investor taking advantage of the offer.

The (hedge will fn&t h.ivo^o be  utilised to nsaiat in opening < the  stiaight channel'inid .this work will  have to be partly done during the  summer months, thus paving'the way  for completing the protective work  next winter, and completing the work  ,of opening the channel by the following summer.

'He  .������ny : '' Now if the width and fall does  not exceed ' tlicsc figtues my plan  would be to dam the ri\er all the way  acioss^tnd cut a lock in the solid rock  at the sklc '1 he rock taken out of, the  lock would b"e utilized in the dam,  theicby reducing the cost of the lock  (to >si minimum."' By doing it this  way he is satisfied the work can be  dune and made permanent for SpTri.OpO.  It" has* been undcistood the provincial  government would probably be'willing  to donate $-1,000 per mile to the  building of a tramway, and the length  of the tramway has' been estimated at  four _ miles 'and upwaids. Why not  ask tliem for a -donation of $25,000  towaids building the dam and lock  and the- Dominion Government for  $50,000.' I daresay the different mills  and timber owners -would donate I  liberally.  OGOIEJVMLLS.  A Great Flour Milling Industry.

It is well to be warned in  time   and    to   anticipate   them if  THE SCHOOL .(JUISRTION.  It is a matter of regret that so  many 'prominent Conservatives  should seek to take advantage of  the differences of opinion om the  school question in ihe Northwest  to"endeavor to arouse the worst  passions of humanity to the ad-'  vantage of their party. Col. Sam  Hughes, JI. I'., talks of civil war,  and this is a man who is 'a Protestant and holds a responsible position as representative of the people  in parliament. Jf true Protestantism means anything it means toleration., evenne.-s of mind and  justice, and'men'who make such  wild a lid inflammatory statements,"  while they may profess Protestant-  i-m. 'are neither Christians nor  patriots. If men of that character  had had their way in the past Canada would have been seethed in  blood by men'killing each other for  the love of 'God. Such men are  more dangerous to constitutional  government than' anaichists or  nihilists, and' every' good, levelheaded citizen, whether Protestant  or Catholic,'should condemn any  such intolerant attitude. '  -' Never since he has been leader.of  the Conservative party has Air.  Borden shown to greater advantage  than when discussing this legislation.' Ue expressed the hope "that  the House would deal with , the  present case in the spirit of Christianity and' forbearance. They  should realize that there were two  sides to the question, that' both  were entitled to consideration. lie  hoped the JIouso,woulii find a solution of the present question that  would commend itself to all the  people of Canada."  Protestantsshould remember that  in the da\s befoie confederation,  when tliL-y were only'a small minority of. .the province of Quebec,  ih.it prounce conceded and -protected iheir educational rights, so  high an authority as Sir, John  Uo-e haung wud, ''We. the English'  pros tenia nt minority of bower Canada, cannot forgr-t that uhatevei  right of scpaiale education we  ha\e was man led to u^ m ihe most  unrestricted way before the union  of the province,-, when we were in a  minority and finitely in the hands  of the French popuUiion. We can  not forget that in no way was there  any attempt to prevent us educating our children in the manner ue  saw tit and deemed best, and I  would be untrue to what is just if  < 1 forgot to say that the.distribution  jo: state fund-for educational pur-  j pose= was macb/in such a way a-  ! to cau-e no complaint on  the   part  1 , '        ."

No man fought   harder   for   th"-e  right.- and airain-t the coiitention-  of hi- own church  than Sir Wilfred  Lauricr.  British Columbia wa������ an independent colony before confederation and retained the in-titution"  then exi.-ting, among which wan  the .-ecular educational .-y-tern, so  that .fortunately the issue was  never raised bore.  As regards the territories the  federal parliament passed live dif  ferent acts between 1S70 and 1S9S  establishing separate schools in the  territories and the new "legislation  simply confirms what has already  existed for a quaiter of a century.  The people must have been satisfied' with' that system 'or would  have protested against it. As.'it is,  agitation does not arise in' the  territories but among outsiders who  contend the law means something,  which Sir Wilfred, as the framer of  tlie measure, says it does not mean.  Any difficulty about the interpretation of the bill can easily be remedied, and we consider the people  of the.provinces should have the  right to deal with the .education  question as they think fit.   Tliat at  i\- ' i *���������       n f  all.cvents is a bedrock principle of  Liberalism. ,       ������ .     '''',''  h really does not (matter much  whether schools are secular or,  sectarian, so long as all schools, are  subject' to government 'inspection  to insure an^,educational standard  of efficiency, and when a government takes that stand the sectarian  school has as mticli claim on the  public'funds devoted to education  as the secular school has.     - '    ,''  The people of Canada should endeavor-to view the whole, question  in 'a fair, tolerant, and patriotic  spirit, rather than by narrow bigoted appeals to the vilest passions  of humanity made under the guise  of Christianity and religion, t fio'm  which such passions should "be as  far removed as is .the earth from  the sun:  . The life and history of Sir Wilfred Laurier have shown him to be  a man of tolerance, justice, and  fearless advocacy of, the rights,,of  the people apart from hierarchical  influences, and we believe he may  be trusted to pursue in the future  the -policy he has so nobly and.  strongly maintained in the  past. v'  PROVINCIAL  LEGISLATURE  i        ^    j;  .-The School Bill Passes.' ��������� -  Government.have a Majority of  Two on a Party Division.
