The new mining tax,,it  will he st-en, is'expected to yield ������75,-  000. The in'ci eases made by that bill  are put' down as worth, on income,  $22,000; personal property, $15,000,  and real property, $10,Qp0, and if  these figures are smaller than had be-on  looked for it must be remembered that  whatever lias hitherto been contributed  liy tnining'pro'perty under.these heads  must now be deducted, sincft' the new  mining tax'-has'talcen the'place of. the  other assessments. .Under the four  heads named, .the assestiiTenrr^jill \viH  provide $122,000 extra.' The , greater  mining activity looked for is expected  to produc-������J"$10,000 additional, revenue  for the free-miners' certiiic.ite-i, and, to  make the general'mining receipts $20,-  000 more than estimated for the  .current year, while for licenses $15,000  more is expected. The "timber royalties, though tlie arrears"have all been  paid up, arc expected to give ;in* additional SlUOOO. Against all these  increases rhe only conspicuous decrease  i.s in land sales, including arrears, the  dift'erencedn the estimates for the two  years being $80,000. The absence of  any estimate of receipts arising out of  .the proposed sale of land warrants  would settin ro indicate that the' much  discussed bill authorizing such^sale,  still standing on the order paper, ^ is  not to be proceeded with.  ESTIMATES OF. EXPENDITURE.  A summary of tho expenditure,  comparing the estimates now presented  with the supply bill of last session,  shows the following :   ,  .: Arrowhead Locals.  The weather for the last ten days  has been quite warm and summerlike.  The mouth of the river is quite clear,  but the "North-lja.st.Arm is still covered over. The ice there is fast melting,  rendering communication diflieult, not  ���������to say 'dangerous. Several attempts  were made to reach Thomson's Landing, keeping on this side of the Arm.  but they had to be ab.iudoin-d, on account of the rotti>n state of the ice-; in  more than one instance it gave way  under the strain, but fortunately no  worse consequences followed, than a  ducking.  f)n Wednesday the "Marion" made  her first appearance for the season,  having made a 'speciall trip to take  down a load of explosives.

Civil Government salaries have been  reduced,all round, with the- exception  of the Ministers and deputies, and the  lowest grade of olticials, whose pay was  already at the minimum figure (the. aggregate saving being just about $10,-  000). In the Pro\incial Secretary's  Department, the printing office, finance  department, audit oiiice, Lands and  Works, and Attorney-General's Department, a cut of from 1\ to v> pet  cent has been applied.

Davie,   wife   of   Chief   Justice  n.ui<*, dietl at. Victoria last week aftc  Consfruction work on the big C. P.  .R. bridge across the .Columbia has  claimed another \ictini. , The fifth  accident'and second, fatality on'this  work occurred yesterday morning when  an experienced bridgeinan and old  employe, named John .McSottrley, lost  his life. He w.ts working with others  on tlie bottom cord, about 20 feet bo-  low'the top of the bridge, and 2o feet  irbove the ice and timber. He was (,111c  of Miller's bridge gang, and they were  /taking out rods and castings near the  surface of'the bridge, which loosened  ���������them for lowering by ropes. One of  these castings was broken, but the  -���������fracture being on tlie under side 'was  not'observed, and.a piece weighing 80  to 1)0 pounds fell and struck IvIcSourley'  knocking hini to the -ice .and 'rubbish  below. -The - man who'"* handled the  rope 'and castings above, cried -'look  out," and one man jumped out of the  way, but McSourley, did not appear to  realize the danger, and caught the full  blow,' slightly stooping, on -his back..  In falling, he struck a Swede who was  made insensible for awhile, but t*was  notseiiously injured. McSourley receded two severe cuts, one on the back  of the head, the other on the forehead,  each about three inches long, from  which blood flowed profusely. There  did not appear to be any internal injury, but death occurted between 12 and  1 o'clock, about five hours after the accident.  Elijah McDonald was one of the  first to help him, and staid with him  at the car to which he was removed.  McSourley recognized hini and said  "Mack, take me home."        * t  Dr. McKechnie says there was no  fracture of the skull, and as far as  could be judged no internal injury, but  in his opinion death waseaused by hemorrhage which brought fatal pressure  upon the organs ,of respiration.,  Dr. McLean, Coroner, and officer T.  Cad man summoned a jury composed  of F.'B. Wells, W. M. Brown, A. McNeil, Albert Stone, John Abrahamson  and James W. Vail,  (foreman.)  Several witnesses gave testimony in  substance as abo\e detailed, and the  finding of the jury was as follows :  "That the said John McSourley 011 the  27th day of March, being at work on  the railway bridge across the Columbia  river at Rcvelstoke, was struck by a  casting falling from a height of about  I.*} trot, and knocked to the timber and  ice below, about, 20 to 2~> fe<*l, by means  whereof the said John McSourley received wounds which caused his death  about five houis aflerward**!. And we,  the jurors, would recommend that c\-  ticmo caution should be taken by (hose  in charge of constructing this In idge,  "iii"giving"warning of danger that may  be feared, to the working men below,  in time to save themselves."  The companions of the deceased had  made every preparation for the funeral  which was timed for 2.30 this afternoon, at which hour many friends of  the dead man had assembled at the  bridge car. The cortege was about to  start for the grave u hen a telegram  was received from relatnes to forward  the body of deceased to Lis old home  near Ottawa, Out. Accordingly, the  :-'mains were conveyed to the. station  and will be sent east to-morrow. It  will be taken off at Donald and placed  in a hermetically sealed casket, as required by thc   regulations   of Ontario.  The Austrian, rial;.in, Genjinn am-  Uritish meiiiliers of t he coinnns.-ion ol'  tin* Egyptian debt voted ������500,000 to  meet expenses of the UriLish-Rprvptian  expedition to Dongola. 'J'he French  and Russians opposed the vote -tronglv  and trouble is feared. One rumor is  1ii.il tlie. French ainhass.-.dor to London  I  R0SSLAND MINE EXPLOSION  Attributable to the Carelessness of One  'of the Victims. *  An inquest was held on the bodies  of the victims of the recent mine  horror at , Jlobsland and from , the  evident.'**! it ia apparent 'that the  explosion, which resulted in the death  of (ive men was caused through the  carelessness of one of the victims wh'o  was engaged in boring p'owder sticks  with the end of his candlestick, containing a lighted candle, a practice common  amongst niineis.  Thostoiy of thi* disasler as told to  the,-jury by Jeioiniah Collins, Ed.  Shaiiaghaii's companion is as follows :  Sat ui day, the I Ith instant, I was  worlingon the day shift iii the Center  .Star1 mine. I was working with the  deceased Siiaiiagiian. We wei;o finished drilling and n.vidy to charge the  holes. I went to,the blacksmith -shop  foi lV.se and .-tring.' The fuse is kept  in the blacksmith shop already capped.  I returned with ���������i.he twelve pieces'of  fuse that were needed, v.-ith cap upon  each piece. 1 went to the place where  the powder was. I found Shanaghan  there digging powder out of the sticks.  He had prepared thiee or- four sticks  and laid them between ine and him for  ine'to grea-p the fuse. He had a wire  candlestick which was not huge enough  to make the hole iu the stiok for the  cap. He was using his own candlestick. I, laid the fuse around the  bucket of grease so . that 'I could pull  them out as I needed * them. I had  taken the i'u.st one out and greased it,  put tho hole-in a1'cartridge with my  'own candlestick, put the grease on and  closed the paper around the fuse, and  was r.ving Lhe string around the paper  and fitse. ���������' 1 think 1 had the cartridge  between-my khe.es wtien Shanaghan  jumped over me, knocking ine down.  He did not speak as tie jumped over  inc. I saw three stick- of powdei on"  fiie as soon as he had jumped over me.  .I got up ari.l Shanigiian was ont of  my sight. 'When 1 saw the powder  blazing I .started out. of lhe tunnel.^  Sh.in.igh:ui was ahead of me and fell.'  lie was on ui:: leet before* I en.ild pass  hini. When we weie al. the door of  the blacksmith shop. Shanaghan first  >poke, saving, ".Wry. tor Christ's  sake go' and 'it'll Pete,"���������"meaning the'  fo'-em.an. 1 told the foreman, who was  in "tlie blacksmith shop, that the  powder was on fire. Ke ask^d .if-���������.Wtf  had told .the men .inside. - 1-said we  had 110 time to'"do"'So. -He then"Win  out,of the shop, but I do not know  where he'went to. When f'earue out  1 found Shanaghin standing .us I had  left him, facing the tunnel in. front of  the shop... I told him this is a" bad  place to be. He did not speak or move  that I -aw. That wa- the last I saw of  him before the explosion. Not moie  than, two minute.- elapsed from the  time the J powder took fire until the  explosion occurred. The powder I saw  on fire was the powder I mentioned as  being prepared and laid between us.  There rouM.be no caps on those sticks.  The caps and fuse would not be distant  more than twenty inches from the  burning , powder. The caps were  nearest' the fiie. I carried the stick  into which I had placed the cap to the  point where Shanaghan fell; I then  threw it behind me as far as I could, f  know that it was never found. I could  have thrown the burning powder away  fi0111 the place where it was if I had,  not been knocked down. I could have  dom\so after I had got on to my, feet  again if I had not lost* niv presence of  mind. I don't kiiow how much powder  there was at the place where the  explosion occurred. Jt was the duty  of Joseph Dolan to ,place thc. .powder  there, under (he foreman's.instructions.  Tha foreman carried tho'keys to the,  powder magazine. The burning sticks  would be. not inore than two feet  di5-.tat1l.from the heater on which the  powder was. The heater was a square  tin box, long enough for two -ticks inside. Oul-ide it was another which,  held the hot wnler. So far as I know  all the powder in the tunnel at that  time was iu the heater excepting the  sticks Shanaghan had removed from it.  I think the Iu'"ifc'r would hold not more  than 100 pounds; I don't, know how  much powdei' wa,s in the heat.er.it the  time. 1 saw Shanaghan after the  explosion. I ie was lying on his back  about 50 lo 75 feet from when* lie hail  beeit standing when I left him.  Shanaghan was using his randiest ic1--,  in which there was n lighted candle,  for removing powder fi out the sticks,  and il must have been from his candle  thai the pi.wder was ignited. 1 think  Iii.- candle had been burned not more  than one hour. It is customary to tt-e  our candlestick- for preparing the  powder to receive Ihe fuse.  The jury returned the following  verdict :  Thatthe-.-iid IDd Shanaghan, together  wilh .lo-eph J)olan, .Michael (J.ivigan,  Daniel Lynch and Thoma- (Jibhons  came to their death by an "\plosii,u of  i-ianl powder in the ('"enter SI ar mine.  Finns the evidence we are ol the  opinion that the expln-aon was caused  by the giant powder becoming ignited  from -i lighted candle in thc hand.- of  Ed Shanaghan wii'de priming e.irt-  lidgesfor bla-ting in Ihe mine. Tiie  cu-to:n we find to be common among  miners of boring out the end of c.-trl-  rtdge- wit li the end ol a ,candl> .-tick  containing a lighted candle should be  univer-aily condemned. We should  recommend lo the legislature of British  Columbia that a law be passed that no  oowder-I1.1M l������"'*-to!-i-.l in a   ir.ine.   and  The Remedial Bill Conference.'

They express  themselves as well satisfied with   their  property.     It is looking better   than     ,  ever, thoy say, with  the prospects of  big'returns therefrom this summer as  the gold keeps getting coarser all th���������������������  time.    The   output  for  the  pivit  four  months amounts ��������� to  $1,000 witli  four  men  working. '  Nuggets worth from  $5 to $20 are comparatively, common    -  but Sweeney,-, brought*.down^'fewo-the  like of which are not picked up every  day; one goes just an  even $50*. while  the other weighs a few cents over $13.  Gold at Prince'Albert.  Gold in paying quantities ;has been"  found in the Birch Hills, near Prince  Albert, N. W.

The discovery was ���������  made on a farm owned by one Cad-  waller who is at present in JSngland.  R. J.

' 1  The British Pacific Again.  ��������� *  1 ������  From Victoria comes a report that  fresh negotiations concerning the  British Pacific have been opened  between the promoters and the Gov- ���������  eminent,- the basis of which are an increased ' hind grant and a decreased  cash subsidy, believed to be in, the  vicinity of 8120,000 a year for aquaf- ^  ter of a century���������and possibly forever  and ever, for all some people appear to  care. With an apparent deficit of  close upon one-third of thc entire revenue of thc Province, and a considerable increase in the taxation borne "by  the people, it is hardly likely that the .  Government will entertain the proposition.  Tussing Tries to Escape.  The prisoner Tussing, who is serving  a three months' sentence at the Provincial gaol here for obtaining money  under false pretences at Revelstoke,  gav.* Ihe gaol oiriciaIs a little anxiety  the oilier day.

It has further  ,demonstrated, the fact that all  of the  great-fissure veins, and most profitahle  ,mining districts, -lhat have   heen  discovered and worked are* in close proxi-  mitv to or within a few  miles of the  junction of the primitive with the -secondary formation;  sometimes  in  the  former and sometimes  in  the  latter,  mid frequently, in   both  slrala at the  same time  and   place.    This  principle  applies more palpably to the oldet'and  less disturbed regular formation.   This  is especially the case*in   California:  in  many deep  placers,   hei   gravel  drifts  are ancient river beds,   covered   up hy  lava flows 100 and 200 feet, thick. These  placers are  fixed  by  running  tunnels  beneath the basalt lavas until tlie iIvor  gravel is reached.    In some places this  gravel lias been cemented together  by  thc alkaline waters, which are so highly chained with .silica, and whii'h have j  percolated through llu* lava floor. This  is the case in many pi.ices   in   Oiegon.  On the soutli fork of the Cociuille river,  in Coos County.'   This is in the. vicinity  and  near  to  I'ort   Orfoul   and   Cape  Blanco,   where  the -black sand   beach  mining is carried on, about   which   \v<:  have heard and road  -o much,   a.-  also  tho groat difficulty in saving the gold,  and   the   innumerable   machines   and  methods   which .have   been ' invented  therefor.
